him, And he cams away fortunately without
any ugly marks. Considerable excitement
prevailed, however, while he was being
ooaviheed of his error, caused mainly by
the accidental discharge ot t pistol.
When Constable Sheehao passed
through Stone Fort, Saline county, last
Thursday, great excitement prevailed there.
Two car-loads of men from different parts
of the county, bad gathered there to inquire
into the Cause of the burning of a flour and
saw mill belonging to Tim Ouire & Bro.,
which bad occurred the night before, and
to find and puniih 'summarily those who
had fired it, if any much excitement pre

When the steamer Arkansas City was
at a point near Hickman, Sunday, on ber
way up, a qaarrel took place on board be
tween her second engineer and a negro
deck-hand during which tl.e latter drew
knife and cat the former 'several ' times in
the side and abdomen. One deep long cut
near the left side was very dangerous and,
it was thought yesterday, might prove fa
tal. The wounded man was brought up here
and placed in the hospital under the care of
Drs. Ferker, When the boat arrived here
she laid off from shore until an officer
went aboard to arrest the negro, but the
latter could not Is found. The engineer's
name is George Fisher.

Alderman McHale has pushed the work
of mattressing Ohio levee between Tenth
anil Twelfth streets so rapidly that it now
remains only to sink the mattresses with
rock, and for this purpose the rock will ar
rive to-morrow or Thursday. Only three
or four more mattresses need
now to be constructed. The
work, when done, will be similar
to some done under Mr. Mc Hale's direction
on the Mississippi fide of the city, and
which after being under water for about
two weeks, is found to have arrested tbe
sediment in tbe river to such an extent 'as
to t)e almost entirely hidden from view by a
compact, mass of silt There is no reason
to doubt that the Ohio levee work will
operate just like this and permanently cure
all abrasion there during high water.

that he has determined to give it up and

" About two weeks ago a woman named
Bell Ryan came to this city and sought for
shelter at police headquarters. She was in
a delicate state, far advanced.and without
means. Chief Myers procured ber tempo
rary quarters and next day got her a pass
by boat for up the river where she had rela
tives to whom she wanted to go. But when
she reached the boat she got sick and thi
officers of the boat refused to take her. She
came back and the chief, after much trou
ble, again got her a place of temporary
abode with a lady living on Poplar street.
There she has been until the presuot time,
giving birth almost Immediately after her
arrival there, to a fine boy baby. Her
hostess has given her the best ot care all
along, and she has now recovered. Bat the
child is an illegitimate one and the mother,
to judge from a remark she made soon after
its birth, an unnatural one. Seeing that
the mother manifested very little interest in
the child, neglecting it even in tbe matter of
administering sustainance, the hosters ad
monished ber that she must be more attentive
of the little thing would die. In answer
to this admonition the mother shoved the
child away from her saying, "here, take the
thing and throw it to tbe hogs." The
hostess is willing to take the child and rear
it and will probably do so. The heartless
mother pys that a man named Kelley, on
the Iron Mountain road, is the father of
the child. The woman claims to be from

pluck and perseverance gone through last
night by Miss Grey, the Prima Donna of
ths Cfrtu Opera Company. Upon ber ar
rival hers yesterday, Bhe received a tele
gram announcing the death of ber mother
in New Tork. But knowing that a per
formance without her was out of the Ques

extreme grief, plucked up courage enough
to go through her role of "Bettina"in the
Maecotte, and nnder tbe circumstances she
did wonderfully well.

That Big Thing in Life, Comparison,
A man don't know how In; is petting
along unless he compares himself with
his neighbors. Comparison is a big
thing in this life. If Mr. I.owry liasn t
got any hotter crop than I have I am
content, for Mr. Ivry is a pood farm
er. Sometimes I step around his fields
and look over thti fenee, and if bis cot
ton is low and thin, and his corn pretty
much all nubbins I can't to save my
life feel bad alxnit it. I wish I could",
and I reckon I could if my own crop
wasn't so much like his. Unman na
ture is powerful mean about the like of
that. They say thai a woman is right
well satisfied with her new dress and
her new bonnet until her neighbor
comes to meeting with a little finer one,
but 1 reckon that is a mistake. I read

ing arsenic because slit; saw her neijrh

CAIRO BULLETIN; TUESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 11, i8S.
A TERRIBLE PROrHENCY.
TUB RED B0NIET8, CTCLOKES AND EARTH-
qUAKES FORETELLING COMING DIS
. ASTER HOW TO MEET IT.
The recent mysterious appearances fol
lowing sunset and preceding sunrise have
attracted wide attention I rom siudents of
the skies and the people generally. During
tho days of recent weeks the sun seems to
have been obscured by a thin veil of dull
leaden hue which, as the sun receded toward
the horizon, became more luminous, then
yellow, than orange, then red; and, as night
settled down upon tbe earth, a dull purple.
At first it was thought these appearances
wete ordinary sunset reflections of light
but it is now pretty certain that tbey are
either the misty substance of the tall of
some nnseen comet, in which the earth is
enveloped, or a surrounding stratum of
world dust or very small meteors. Profes
sor Brooks, of the Rod Housn Observatory,
Phelps, N. Y., has turnei his telescope upon
these objects and discovered what be thinks
are myriads of telescope meteors. It it is
unorganized world dust, or decomposed
vapors, as the Democrat and Chronicle of
Rochester, N. Y., remarks: "How is this
mutter to be disposed of! Will it settle
and form a deposit upon the earth, or re
main a partial opaque shell about the earth
to cut off a portion of the sun's light upon
Whatever the mystery is, there is no de
nying that some very strange forces are at
work in the upper airs. The terrible torna
does and cyclones which have swept our
own country, and the fearful volcanoes and
earthquakes which have destroyed so many
cities and thousands of people the tidal
waves which mysteriously rise and fall on
coasts hereto unvexed by them the tremeu
dous activity which is evident in tbe sun by
the constant revelation of enormous spots
upon its surface all indicate unusual ener
gy in the heavenly bodies. I
These circumstances recall Professor
Grimmers prophecies that from 1881 to
1877, tbe passage of tbe five great planets
Mars, Neptune, Jupiter, Uranus snd Saturn
around the sun would produce strange
and wonderful phonomena. He says: "The
waters of the earth will become more or
less poisonous. Tbe air will be foul with
noisome odors. Ancient faces will disap
pear from the earth." He attempts to prove
his prophecy by tbe fact that in 1720, when
Mars and Saturn mads their passage around
the sun coincidental!, great destruction
and mortality visited all parts of the globe.
Ha also found the same results in previous
perehelton passages of the planets, and
argues that these circumstances always
produce epidemics and destructive diseases
which will baffla the skill of the most emi
nent physicians', that the poor will die by
thousands, the weak and intemperate full
ing first, those whose blood has been im
poverished by excess of work or dissipation
next and only those who are in compara
tive vigor shall escape to enjoy the era of
renewed activity and prosperity which will
follow the period of destruction.
Inasmuch as the entire world seems sub
ject to the sway of the heavenly bodies no
part of tbe earth, he thinks, can escape
scourging. He even predicts that America
will lose over ten millions of people; that
farmers will be stricken with fear and cease
to till the soil; that famine will make
human misery more wretched. That hun
dreds will flee to overcrowded cities for aid
in vain. That sudden changes in ocean
currents, temperate and surroundings will
entirely transform the face of nature and
climate of countries; that the air will be so
foul with malaria and other noxious gases;
that those who will survive will bo troubled
with disorders of the digestive organs.
That many who escape other ills will bloat
with dropsy and suddenly pass away, while
others will grow thin and drag out a miser
able existence in indescriable agony for
weeks. Neuralgic pains in different parts
of the body will torment them. They will
easily tire and become despondent, A faint,
hot feeling will be succeeded by chilly sen
sations while halincinations and dread of
impending ill will paralize all effort.
"The birds in. the air, the beasts of the
field and even the fish of the sea will be
come diseased, poisoning the air and poison
ing the waters of the globe." We are told
on the other hand that those who shall pass
through this period of trial will have larger
enjoyment of life sad health. The earth
will yield more abundantly than ever be
fore. The animal kingdom will be more
prolific and life prolonged very materially.
This prolongation of life will will be owing
to the healthy electric and magnetic influ
enccs that will pervade the atmosphere.
It would perhaps seem that the presont red
ness of the sun, and the presence of a belt
or veil of cosmic matter justified, in anteas
uie, the prediction of Professor Grimmer,
but disturbing as bis prediction may be we
re told for our comfort that the strong and
pure blooded need have little to fear in
hesu calamities, that those who are delicate
or iudisposed should adopt means to keep
the system well supported and the blood
pure and that tbe most philosophicsl and
effective method of accomplishing this is
to keep the kidneys and liver in good con
dition. From the testimonials ot such men
as Dr. Dio Lewis and Professor R. A. Gunn,
M. D., Dean of the United States Medical
college, New Tork, and thousands of influ
ential non-professional people, it seems
almost certain that for this purpose there is
no preparation known to science equal to
Warner's Safe Cure, better known as War.
ner's Safe Kidney and Liver Cure., This
medicine bas acquired the finest reputation
of any preparation that was ever,' put
npon the market. It is a radical blood pur
ifier, which sootlu-s and heals all 1 Inflamed
organs, strengthens the nervous system
washes out all evidences of dtcay, regulates
digestion, prevents mal assimilation of food
in a philosophical and" rational manner,
fortifies the system against climatic changes
and malarial influences and the destructive
agencies which seem to be so abundant in
these "evil days."
It is not our purpose to dispute the cor
rectness of Professor Grimmer's prophecies.
As we have said, the marked disturbances
of the past few years would seem to give a
semblance of verification of his theory. It
is certain, as above stated, that wc are pass
ing through what may be regarded as a
crucial period and it is the part of wise men
not to ignore, but to learn, to. fortify them
selvi s against tho possibility of being over
come by these evils. It is a duty which
each man owes to himself, and his fellows
to mitigate as much as possible the suffer
ing of humanity and in no way better can
he accomplish tbis purpose tban to see to it
that he, himself, is fortified by tbeest
known preparation in the strongest possible
manner and that he exert the influence of
bis own example npon bis fellows to the
end that they, too, my share with him
immunity from the destructive influences
which seek his ruin.

I have a bright little daughter who will be two
yean old next month. 8he haa been troubled
nearly ever alnce her birth with a akin diseaee,
which I flrat diagnoied chicken-pox, but later
found It to be some sort of ecxeiua: at any rat It
reaiated very stubbornly all tho different treat
ments. I purchased one bottle of 8wiit'a Specific
and gave it to her to small doses three times a day
and in a short while bad the satisfaction to aea
that she waa entirely well. I am so well p eased
with lis effect on her that I ahall not or.ly uae It In
my practice, but I ahall administer t to my other
children and take It myielf. W. K. Bbosts, M D.
