injurious to youths, it is true, and their

possible thit the weapons oaed in an op:0,
aggressive war upon them will react a a

a war of this kind would bring the tin-
savory tbiog to tbe attention of persons
who have hitherto never thought of read
ing it, and cause in them a deairs 'just to

such a great fuss about!" It seems to us
that tbe experiences of the past could fur
nish much evidence that would justify an
affirmative answer to these querries.
The air is already strongly impreg
nated with a Christmas flavor. The
streets of the city in the principal business
blocks have much the appearance of splen
did art galleries, for in all tbe show win
dows, big and little, are arranged in an at
tractive manner articles ot every descrip
tion of creat value, beauty and usefulness,
either, or all qualities combined. Certain
ly, people who cannot find in all this great,
varied and magnificent array something
that would suit them for presents to friends
or relatives of any age or condition, are
indeed hard to please. Before seeking
foreign markets therefore for something to
give to their friends on Christmas day, peo
pie should look over the splendid displays
made by tbe enterprising business men
here at home.
Communicated : Tbe Mission begun
last Sunday in St. Joseph's Catholic church
and which will terminate this (Sunday)
evening, with very impressive ceremonial,
has been productive of much good among
our.Catholic people, and withal has awak
ened a spirit of inquiry among the agnostic
element of our citizens that may eventual
ly draw them into the Chriatian fold. Tbe
veteran Father Damen, the inspiration of
the great revival, has been in the mission
for thirty years, and during that time has
received into the Catholic church ten
thousand and five hundred converts, of
these two hundred and fifty-six were Pro
testant ministers. He is a finished pulpit
orator. His extreme age and corpulency
detract somewhat from a polished and
graceful delivery, but bis voice is of won
derful compass, strong but docile, trsns
fusing into the minds of his heares the
great thoughts that animate his own. Ths I
strong power behind the eternal water ia bis
earnestness, he feels what he speaks, he
sees the sin-burdened sou', and knowing
the means for its salvation, he prays, begs,
implores it to grasp the remedy. His dis
course Friday evening was on "Death." At
two o'clock, today, in St. Joseph's church,
he will lecture on "Transubstantiation," or
the "Real Presence" when be will prove the
hypostatic union of our Lord's two natures
in the Encbariot. By virtue of the privi
lege conferred upon tbe Jesuit Order, by
Pope Pius IX, the solemn papal benedic
tion, will be given to-morrow evening. At
the close Friday evening Father Damen ex
tended a cordial invitation to all non
Catholics to be present at bis lecture to
day. Mrs. S. Williamson's Bazaar is now
in all its spendor of holiday attire and a peep
into it makes tbe rich and poor alike glad
to think that there is one place in all this
cold and bard world where they can get
something nice and attractive as well ss
serviceable for a present for the friends or
little ones at home who, God bless them,
are the one point wbicb their hearts point
to and makes this world bright and happy.

Atlait the docket of the county prom
ises to ba once more cleared of the Nen-ninger-Schuler-Lutx
case. After just an
other week's trial it was again decided by
the jury last night, and this time in favor
ot the defendants and against Mrs. Nen
nisger. Argument in the case wu begun
Friday afternoon by Mr. Leek for the pros
ecution. Mr. W. B. Gilbert followed for
the defense; Mr. J. M. Lansden
for the prosecution, Judge Green
for the detente, Mr. Crandall
closed for tbe defense and Mr. Linegar
closed for tbe prosecution lut night about
o'clock when the case went to the jury.
The jury was out only a few minutes when
it declared its readiness to announce tbe
verdict tor the defendants. The amount at
iseie was $5,000, which Mrs.
Nermicger sought to recover
frcm detendants. The case has been
ia tt coaiu of this and Pulaski county for
over n:ne years; was tried eve times in an,
m-2'.ticg once in a verdict for the plaintiff
in the sam of $1,500. It wu tried three
times in this county, costing the people of
the county almost a years' salary of one of
their principal county officers. It is not
certainly off tbe docket yet, for tbe usual
motions sre now in order and will doubt
leu all be made and argued at length be
fore it is finally stricken from the court cal
ender. The attorneys for ths defense, par
ticularly Mr. Crandall, who has followed
the case trom its very inception to its close
with mocb energy and persistency, teel
much elated at the result. Court adjourned
until to-mornw merning without taking up
any other case.
The boarding bouse runner nuisance
was again brought into notoriety last night
in a rather aggravating manner. A family
named Carr, consisting of husband, wife
and two children, the wife being crippled
and compelled to move about on crutches,
came down on the Fowler enroute for
Charleston, Mo. Tbey had barely enough
money to pay their fare to Charleston when
they landed here, although tbe kind officers
of the Fowler bad returned them the fare
for their trip down here from Paducah.
While carrying his trunk up the levee
toward the Union depot, the bus! and was
besieged by runners and hackmen, but he
succeeded in reaching the top of the lever;
and, getting his trunk down in front of Mr.
Manning's house, be started to go after bis
family; but not until he had told the negro
porter that he did not want his trunk taken
into the house, did not want to put up at
tbe house and did not want any check for
the trunk; to let the trunk alone where it
was and be would call for it and take it to
tbe depot bimaelf. But as soon as Mr. Carr
bad left, the negro drsgged the trunk into
the house, and when he returned the owner
was made to pay twenty-five cents, all the
money he had to spare for food for his fam
ily, before he could get his trunk back.
Officer Mahanny beard of the circumstances
and he went to Mr. Manning to get back
the money, stating all the distressing cir
cumstances in the case; but that gentleman
firmly refused to return the money, saying
that be had charged it for storage, (which
he had no right to do, under the circum
stances). A warrant was issued for him
charging him with disorderly conduct, and
he was fined 5 and costs by Magistrate
Comings. Tbe circumstances of the family
being stated in the court room just before
the trial, resulted in a collection among
those present and a snug little sum was
turned over to the family.
Cleveland, Ohio. ChietSupt. Schmitt,
of tbe Police Force, recommends St. Jacobs
Oil for the cure of pain.
The increasing dissatisfaction in the use of High
Test oils now offered to the trade, and the general com
plaints arising therefrom, necessitates tlie calling of special
attention to WARDEN & OXNARD'S GENUINE ELAINE
OIL, which never varies in quality, always gives a good
light aud uuiversal satisfaction.
ELAINE, after many years of trial, is conceded to be
the BEST ILLUMINATING OIL made from Petroleum, and
it can not be improved upon.
