Mr. W. F. Lambdin, The Bulletin's
river editor, has gone borne to Paducah,
principally because of bis anxiety for his
little daughter who was bitten by a dog a
few days ago. As several dogs have gone
mad in the neighborhood within the last
year, fears are entertained the brute that
bit the child may have had symptoms of
the terrible disease. The dog was killed
immediately after attacking the little girl.
The new comet can be seen by the
naked eye after sunset in the northwest,
near the sUr Vega, the only star of the first
magnitude in that vicinity. Through the
telescope it looks of the size of the moon,
with just the suggestion of a tail. By the
latter part of January it will drop down to
70,000,000 miles f the sun and it will be
much brighter than when it mide its star

Mr. Harry Walker has for two weeks
now given the pations of his little theatre
an entertainment, which in quality, is sel

theatres of the large cities. There has been
an unusual array of stage talent some
features of which would hive done credit
to any "legitimate" stage. As a natiual
consequence The Theatre Comique has had
more than its share of patronage dur
ing the last two weeks, and that deservedly
A surprise party was givon Suuday
night to Mrs. Peter Ehs, mother-in-law to
Mr. H. n. Meyer, the artistic painter, at
her residence on Park avenue and Twenty,
fourth street. It was the occasion of Mrs.
Ehs' fiftieth birth day, and it was worthily
celebrated by her friends and relatives.
Upwards of forty people burst in upon the
unsuspecting old lady all at once and made
the parlors resound with jollity tor four or
five hours in a manner that caused all to
forget the past in the present snd the old
to feel young again for the time being. A
congratulatory letter was read by Mr.
Albert Smith and verbal congratulations
were showered upon Mrs. Ehs by all the
company; after which there was music,

The Atgus says it looks in vain for
Capt. Thomas' name among the names of
the Republican members of the different
committies announced to the federal
house by Speaker Carlisle Monday. The
Argus is, in this instance, not as sharp of
vision as It would have its name indicate.
It is not, in this instance, a good representa
tive of the fabled Argus who had a hun
dred eyes, unless it meant to represent him
after bis eyes had been transferred to the
peacock's tail. A list of the com
mittees is before us and we find
Capt. Thomas1 name among those
of the members of two of the most import
ant committees in the list, that on Naval
Affairs, of which Mr. Cox, ot New York, is
chairman, and of that on Levees and Im
provement of the Mississippi river, with
Mr. King, of Louisiana, chairman. But
the Argus didn't overlook Capt. Thomas
intentionally, we know, and will do him
Christmas was very generally observed
by our people Tuesday. The merchants
nearly all closed their places of business
toward uoon; churches were all thrown
open to the. public and well attended, as
were also places of amusement; while the
rough, floating element, with two or three
exceptions, behaved in a manner that was
creditable to them as a class. The pop of
fire arms was not as general as it bad
been in former years on the same occasion,
and injuries therefrom were confined to
two cases, in which little boys up town re
ceived slight wounds on hands and faces.
Altogether, Cairo celebrated Christmas af
ter a manner that could not but be accepta
ble to believers in public order and in pub
lic joy on this great day. Our merchants
also did a very good Christmas business.
There were more goods sold than a casual
observer would have thought. Our whole
sale dealers sold great quantities of goods
of every description to the smaller retailers
along the different railroads and rivers; and
the retail dealers were nearly all com
pelled to greatly increase their force of
help in order to accommodate the rush of
customers from city and country. From a
business point of view Cairo's Christmas
was, therefore, also all that could have been
desired. All this seems to indicate a very
healthy state of the public mind and heart
and purse, which inevitable conclusion
must give much satisfaction to the well
wishers of this community.
Officers Mahanny, Cain and Boughner
made a good capture yesterday morning
early. Two men, Messrs. Ileffle and Ruga
ber, employed in the butcher shop ot
Messrs. Jesse Hinkle & Son, on Eighth
street, after closing the shop, noticed young
John R. Runner and Davis Burke lounging
around the immediate neighborhood and,
knowing their character, suspected mis
chief. They passed on, but had gone a
short distance, when they heard the crack
of a window pane. They went in search of
the officers and found Officer Boughner on
bis beat, who in turn notified Officers Ma
hanny and Cain. The three went cautious
ly to the scene of the suspected burglary.
Tbey found young Burke standing in front
of, or near, the stand of Valentine Reach,
near Washington avenue, and took him in
charge so unexpectedly that he could
not give a warning signal to his pal. While
Officer Boughner stood watch over Burk
the other officers went through the Rough
and Ready engine-house to the rear of the
little shop, and finding the door open walk
ed in and saw young Runner in the act of
putting up a variety of small goods, prepar
atory to carrying them off. The officers
felt sure of their bird, but a counter sepera
ted them from him while only a glass sssh
stood between him and the street. As the
officers started around the counter after
him, he made a daab through the window,
taking sash and all with him, and ran for
dear life down toward his home on Third
street. The officers followed as
quickly as possible, but lost sight of him,
and spent several hours searching the low
er part of the city before they found him
at his own house hidden in an obscure
corner. Both young follows were taken
to jail and were yesterday bound over by
Magistrate Comings each in the sum of
$300 for his appearance at the next term
of thr circuit oourt. They asked for a con
tinuauce, saying that they wished to be
represented by attorneys, but the court re
fused to continue, the case and
they waived an examination. A
closer inspection of the burglarized
premises and its surroundings revealed the
fact that the vegetable stand of Mr. James
Boon, fronting on Washington avenue, was
also visited. The upper window sash had
been lowered and a bushel basketful of
various articles carried away before any
suspicion was aroused. There is good re a
son to believe that these two young fellows
have done the petty crooked work lately
perpetrated in various parts of the city

at Mr. John Gate's places.

ILLINOIS CORN CROP.
FACTS AND FIOCR ES FROM REPORTS MADE
TO THR STATE BOARD OF AGRICULTURE.
The quality ot corn is reported up to an
average in only the following counties:
Gallatin, Jasper, Massac, Randolph and
Union, all of which in the southern portion
of the state.
The average yield and quality ot corn in
three divisions of the state are as follows:
Aver yield pared with an
Division. per acre aver per cent
Northern 21 46
Central 29 72
Southern 26 88
Average state.. . . 25 69
The quality of the corn has seldom grad
ed as low as this season, especially in the
northern division of the state, where more
than half of the corn of the state is pro
In the central division of the state the
quality is about seventy per cent of an av
erage, and the yield per acre some better
than in other portions of the state.
The best corn is to be found in the
southern portion of the state, where com
paratively little corn is produced.
The 1883 corn crop, while some larger
than the small crops of 18 SI and 1883, will
not furnish as much marketable corn. It
will be seen above that the acreage of 1883
corn crop as well as the yield is much be
low the average for the past ten years.
The largest yield, 42 bushels per acre, is
reported in Monroe county. The following
counties report an average yield per acre of
forty bushels, viz: Calhoun, Champaign,
Greene, Jersey, Warren and Washington.
The yield of corn is reported less than 20
bushels per acre this season in the follow
ing counties, viz: Carroll and Pulaski
18 bushels, Christian, Clay, Kankakee and
Stepenson 16. Cook, Effingham and Mason
14. Ford, Richland aud Winnebag 15.
Franklin, Henry and Whiteside 18. Grun
dy 12. Livingston and Ogle 17. Peoria
The corn acreage, average yield per acre,
total yield and quality, compared with an
average for each county in the state, is
given in the following figures:

There has never been as much complaint
in any previous year concerning the poor
quality of corn.
The farmers in many localities are venti
lating their corn cribs with drain tile;
others are using rails, while some have
found it necessary to take the corn out of
the cribs and spread it out over the ground
to prevent heating and souring.
The more cautions have left the soft corn
in the field and gathered from day to day
what is necessary for feeding purposes.
The soft corn does not make as much
beef or pork per bushel as well matured
corn, and cattle and hogs are not doing ss
well as usual on that account.
The 'shippers find it difficult to market
the soft corn, even to the distillers, and
farmers having such corn are cither feeding
it to their own stock or selling to feeders.
Renters with no cattle or hogs are com
plaining about market for soft corn.
