The jury iu the case of Jerry Thomp

that Jerry came to his death by drinking
coffee that had been poisoned with arsenic
by Kate Cotton.

.i . . T t I. .
oncning scene ot tne Armstrong mouiers
burnt cork enter'ainment, is entirely origi
nal and partakes largely of an elaborate
pirlor scene, which is at least one refresh
ing inovation upon the old style, showing
simply a lilack semi-circle. Buder has re
served seats at 75, 50 and 25.
Since the Illinois Central made its
afternoon train a fast train, tho Wabash is
the only road that runs an accommodation
train into the city; and this one accommo
dation train, arriving in the forenoon
and departing in the evening, has probably
been of greater benefit to the merchants of
the city, as a source of business, than all
other tiains on all other roads combined.
-Among tho new features introduced by
the Armstrong Brothers minstrels, may bo
mentioned the Powers Brothers roller-skate
dancing; Debar, the wonderful contortion
ist; Tho Four Midgets, Tho Parker Twin
Brothers and The Four Planets, Kennedy,
Foster, Sheehan and Hughes, whoso per
formances are said to provokingly funny.
-An exchange sarcastically remarks:
"A tew weeks more of toil, and tho farmer
will hang his hoe in a sapling and throw
his plow or reaper into a fenco corner. The
crop will bo secured, and tho nnplimeuts
will not be needed until next season. Then

Street Commissioner Baird has done
some good work on tho Twenty-third street
sewer that leaked ho badly and persistently
last spring. Several of tho joints outside
tho gate were broken, which was the cause
of tho leak. He closed them all up, using
sevcnty-llvo pounds of lead in the work.
The sewer will now probably gjvo no moro
trouble. Mr. Baird is now engaged In lay
ing a sewer from Commercial avenue to tho
outlet at Thirty-eighth street.
The proposition to build ft wagon road
to the hills in Kentucky, tn nIu by Alder
man II inkle In tho city council, is not dead

izo n slock company, incorporated under
the laws of Kentucky, whoso object It will

It is understood that the preparations
that have been in progress for some time,
for tho removal of tho Walmsh offices from
this city to Mt. Carmel, will be completed
by tholBtof October, aud the superinten
dent's and train dispatcher's offices will
then bo permanently remored l'rom this
city. We will then havo to refer to Mr.
Moore and Mr. Shearer as "our former

Col. Andrews, of the Wabash road,
camo dowi here from Mt. Carmel u few
days ago. At that place ho had inaugurated
the construction of an engine house nnd
tool houses, much to the pleasure of the
people. Here he examined into the state
ot the movement now on foot, to remove
the freight traffic from Commercial avenue
around to tho Mississippi side of the city.
It is understood that it is the inttution to
remove tho tracks from Commercial avenue
entirely at least hints to that effect were
dropped in the presence of others, by the
Col. and his associates when here.
The Tilden and Hendricks club, of
Centralis, III., the first club in the United
States to orgauize for the "old ticket," 1ms
received advices from proper persons in
New York which warrants the Democrat of
that placo in asserting that there is no
doubt of Mr. Tilden's accepting the nom
ination, and his nearest friends seem to be
lieve that it will bo a unanimous one, as it is
the Democrat masses who are impelling the
politicians. Whether the latter will or not,
it is the vox populi vox dei that leads to
victory with the old ticket.
Several days ago a man named Tims.
Jones, wife and five children of ullages,
arrived in the city from Poplar Bluff ani
took rooms in the second story of the
frame building on Commercial avenue, be
low A. J. Carle's livery Btable. The family
came here sick and in destitute circum
stances. Dr. Wood was notified of their
condition and he has been furnishing them
with medicine. Food, etc , have been fur
nished by different people from time to
time; but tho people need care in various
ways; they are tit subjects for our charitably
-A new swindling scheme is thus re
ported by an exchange: "A man and wo
man locate iu a town,, put on lots of style,
and claim to belong to tho way-up circles.
After a time the man visits the leading
stores and says his wife had spoken ot buy
ing a bill of goods, and if she had done so
he wanted to pay for them, as he was going
out of town for a short time. No oois
had been bought by her, and he goes to
the next door. In a short time the wife
comes in and easily succeeds in getting
credit for a large bill, as the merchant
thinks it is all right became of the story
told by the husband. When they get a
large amount of goods in this way both of
them disappear, ttking the goods with
Here are some wise words from our
spicy little contemporary of Wickliffit, Ky.,
"The Plaindealer," which it may profit some
of our readers to ponder over: "Send away
for everything that you can purchase two
cents cheaper than the merchants of your
own town can afford to sell. If you luve a
few dull business days, advise every one
you meet of the fact, stop your advertise
ment in the paper and let your general de
jection bo most apparent. Do not attend
any public meetings or assist any public
improvements; and publish your disap
proval whenever an opportunity presents
itself. Abuse all those who may happen
to show a lively interest in tho welfare of
the community, Continue in this spirit
through the affairs of your daily life, and
when you have succeeded in attaining a
sufuYient degree ot general nastiness won
der why your customers havo forsaken you;
attribute the fact to tho want of enterprise
in tho newspaper in which you will not ad
vertise, and to the ill will of those whom
you havo villiflod. Then you will perhaps
find that the town is not so good as it should
be, and that tho great object which you
havo had in view is nearly accomplished.
The town you will doubtless be happy."
And, the Plaindealer might have added,
"cry down every formidable effort to build
up the city if, and solely because, somebody
else against whom you have an unreasoning
and unreasonable prejudice favors it."

New wools nre wuven with large loops
placed thick together like Astrakhan cloth,
trimmings follnw ;m 1 ribbons in millinery
are ditto. Oilier wools are lrremilnrlv
woven, now thick, now thin, everything
being done with a view to produce inequali
ty of surface and give the coveted look of
roughness. Vet this roughness is in ap
pearance only, for to the touch these wools
are soft and pliable; extreme delicacy is
exercised in the manufacture, and the
prices are to high to nl;(,w of their being
common. -No on - bow-ever, would wish to
appear in an entire costume of these pro

varieties hhow silken points of contrasting

Combin I'ioii costumes of plain and bro
