An exchange gives the following in
formation which may be useful to the travel
ler on railroads: Telegraph poles are ex
actly ten rods apart, and thirty-two of tht'se
poles consequently make a mile. In order
to find out how fast a train is going, all
that is necessary is to record the time, and
when you have counted tbirty-two poles
you have gone a mile, and your watch will
tell you the time taken to cover that dis
tance. The Nenninger-Schuler-Lutz case was
on trial all day yesterday in the circuit :
court. The evidence for the prosecution
was all in and that for the defence was still
in progress ot being heard when court ad
journed last evening. The attorneys for
the prosecution are Messrs. Linegar, Lins
den and Leek; for the defence, Messrs.
Green and Gilbert, of this city, and Messrs.
Crandall and Linegar, of Mound City. It
is thought that the case will go to the jury
Mr. Louis Stout, son of Alderman
Heary Stout, received a severe fall Satur
day, from the effects of which he has been
confined in bed ever since. He was at
work up stairs in the Library building,
with his father, and the breaking of a
plank caused him to fall clear to the floor
of the basement, a distance of about thirty
feet. His lower jaw was fractured and he
received several bad cuts about the head.
Since then erysipelas set in and his condi
tion was quite critical for a while, but tin
der.the care of Dr. Dunning he is now re
covering. For two weeks pa9t the western horizon
at sunset has presented a peculiarfiery color
that has attracted much attention through
out the country. There are several theories
advanced to explain the phenomenon.
The most plausible one is that the peculiar
red light is due to meteoric dust from the
millions of meteors with which the earth at
this season of the year is daily and nightly
pelted, the vast majority of which are al
most instantly consumed by the intense
heat developed, as they dash into our at
mosphere. This theory, however, cannot
be considered as proved, and some better
explanation may be offered. The pheno
menon is not caused either by electricity or
the refraotion of the sun's rays from high
At 6 o'clock last night Mayor Geo. W.
Gardner, of Cleveland, Ohio, arrived here
and put up at the Halliday. He came in a
beautiful little canoe in which he paddled
all by himself all the way down the river
from Cincinnati, which port he left on
Thanksgiving day. He was accompanied
by a friend, Mr. W. H. Eckman, in another
canoe of like perfection, but the latter got
a little behind and did not reach here last
night. It was supposed that he stopped at
Mound City. The canoes are each of five
hundred pounds capacity. Both are fur
nished with a complete tenting out fit and
other conveniences. The object of the trip
is pleasure and the little party intend to go
clear to New Orleans in their little boats,
stopping at all points of interest and camp
ing out on shore at nights. Mayor Gar
dner will probably leave here to-day early.
Wednesday night Officer Mahanny
passed down Railroad street on his regular
beat and, in passing by the stable of Messrs.
Stratton & Bird, noticed that the door stood
partly open. Ue suspected that someone
was engaged in robbing it of some of the
goods kept in store there and he summon
ed Officers Boughner and Dunker to his
aid. Investigation shewed that the lock of
the door had been broken off, showing that
some one had gained entrance by violence,
but there was no one in the stable. Their
search for an intruder revealed to them fif
teen and a half kegs of powder on the first
floor and two negro steamboaters in the
basement. The powder had been received
the evening belore and temporarily stored
there, and Mr. Stratton had it removed to
the magazine before 7 o'clock yesterday
morning. Who forced the door open and
for what purpose is not known, and Mr
Stratton missed nothing from the stable.
Mr. James Cummings, formerly of
Texas, latterly of McCracken county, Ky.,
was in the city yesterday and will make his
headquarters here while "working" the
neighborhood in the interest of a patent
gudting frame. Mr. Cummings has been
before the public for some time as the
aggressive party to a suit for damages
agaiust two Kentucky sheriffs, who mis
took him for a member of the James gang,
of the name of Cummings, "shadowed"
him for a week or longer as he went in and
out among friends and relatives near Padu
cah, whom he was visiting, arrested him at
last, ironed him and jailed him for several
weeks, only to discover that they had been
badly fooled. He has brought suit for
damages in the sum of $50,000, against the
officers and their securities, aud the trial
has been pending for some months in the
United States court at Paducah. He has
employed an able counsel and will push
the matter vigorously to the end.
Last night as Mr. Sanders closed his
store he missed two caddies of mackerel
that had been displayed at the door during
the day. He notified the officers, and Of
ficer Mahauny aud Coustable Martin under
took to work up the case. After some in
vestigation the officers' suspicion fell upon
a white tramp who has been laying around
here for some time. They arrested bim
and cornered him so closely with cir
cumstancial evidence that ha finally con
fessed his guilt, saying that he hid the
mackerel in tlio back yard of Messrs.
Goldstine& Rosen water's place of business,
where they were subsequently found. He
also confessed that he stole a saddle of
venison trom the express office on Ohio
levee some days ago and sold it, to a butch
er on Eighth street, and before that a num
ber of blankets from Mr. Jno. Sackberger.
lie had tried to sell the mackerel to Mr.
Walter Cundiff on Eighth street. He was
taken to jail and will be examined to-day.
The capture is certainly a very good one,
and the manner in which it was done re
flects credit upon the officers in the case.
The district convention of the Woman's
Christian Temperance Union met in Tem
perance hall Thursday morning at 9 o'clock.
Mrs. Skelton opened the convention by
reading the 48th Psalm, conducting the
prayer service, at 10 o'clock. Miss Helen
Wood, of Chicago, was elected president ot
the convention; Mrs. Jennie Dougherty
secretary, after which the morning was
taken up in electing and appointing various
committees. At 2 o'clock the convention
was called to order, again by Miss Wood,
the president. The prayer service was con
ducted by Mrs. Mary McKee, of Cairo, who
read the 5th chapter of 1st Tbessalonians,
and then gave a touching little address in
regard to the brothers of our lord, she paid
a noble tribute to the fidelity of woman
kind in times of danger, after singing sev
eral stirring odes, the convention was then
addressed by Mrs. Abbie Sloo, of Cairo,
who gave the address of welcome. This
lady iu her talk made some very fine points
and gave food for deep thought. The re
sponso was given by Mrs. Louis Wardner,
of Anna, which was indeed a fine effort and
listened to with close attention. Miss Wood
followed with a charming talk on "Our
Work." its extention, after which a general
discussion was held, led by Mr. Cooper, of
Chicago, on "Our Boys," how (shall we Bave
them? Many good thoughts and ideas
were expressed on this topic by the several
speakers who took part in this discussion,
this was followed by an animated talk on
"Tobacco" and its influence on the appetite.
This discussion was not only amusing but
very instructive In the evening a child
ren'smass meeting was held in the Methodist
church, which was opened by prayer from
the pastor, Rev. J. A. Scarritt, after which
Mrs. Bailey, the "Chalk Talker," addressed
the audience, using charts to illustrate her
lecture, which was very instructive. To
day, the convention will continue all day,
in the evening several prominent speakers
will make addresses in the Methodist

The increasing dissatisfaction in the use of High

plaints arising therefrom, necessitates the calling of special
attention to WARDEN & OXNARD'S GENUINE ELAINE

light and universal satisfaction.
ELAINE, after many years of trial, is conceded to be
the BEST ILLUMINATING OIL made from Petroleum, and
