practically nothing, our municipal debts
amount to a very tidy sum.
Henry Rsntro, a farmer living about
five miles above the city in this county,
while going boms from here in his wagon
ast Saturday night, fell from his wagon
when near his home and received injuries
from which he died very aoon alter. He
was found lying in the road aoon after he
had fallen and was carried to a houae near

Several days ago Mr. Charles Fare
with a force of men supplied the Sixth
street cistern with water. The water was
taken from a cellar under the City Brewery,
pumped up by the stesmer 'Jack Winter"
and conveyed down to the cistern through
the new hose. But before the cistern was
full the grate bars of the engine gars away,
having been burned out, and the pumping
had to cease. New grate bars have been
ordered and when they arrive the Ninth
atreet ciatsrn will probably be repaired and
ready to be filled.
Young Burke, one of the burglars cap
tured by Officers Mahanny, Bough ner and
Cain Tuesday morning, has but within the
month been discharged from the penitenti
ary, where hs had served two years for bur
glarizing the saloon of Mr. Henry Ilason
jager. A second conviction of burglary un
der the act lately paaaed by the legislature,
ia punishable by imprisonment for a term of
not less than fiftebn years. The evidence
in both these caaea ia strong, snd it is
likely that the community will be rid of

The rise in the rivers above has caused
a number of people in the bottoms of Ken
tucky and Missouri to prepare for removal
from their homes when the flood reaches
them. Many of them will flock to Cairo to
take retuge behind her magnificent embank
menta that have held back two great floods
within the last two yeara. Capt. Thomas
Tarr is among the first to come, and he has
engaged the ateamer Ella Eimbrough to go
down to Wolfe Island and bring up his
peraonal possessions there. Capt. Tarr
knows what he does when he comes to
Cairo for safety and he sets a good example
toothers in the bottoms.
A farmer named Jno. Cup living in
Mississippi county, Mo., not far from Char
leston, came over to this city yestorday in
search of a negro named Thomas Cooper,
who had borrowed Pat Kelly's famous gun
and, it ia believed, made away wi:h it.
After Pat'a death the gun came in posses
aion of Mr. Cup, who prized it almost aa
highly aa Pat bad done, for it was a splen
did specimen of its kicd and bad become
noted in the hands of its former owner.
Several days ago Cooper came to borrow it,
got it, came over here with it and 'disap
peared. But Mr. Cup is using every means
to recover the weapon and may succeed.
Springfield Register: "While it is a
noticeable fact that drunkenness is decreas
ing, and men who drink to excess or are
known as habitual drinkers are regarded as
wanting in will-power and therefore unre
liable in business, statistics show there ia a
ateady increaae in the liquor traffic. In the
whole United Statea according to the inter
nal revenue bureau, there are 19,003 more
retail dealers, 140 more rectifiers and 803
more wholesale dealera and aeven more
brewers than there were last year. Ten
yeara ago there were 200,876 retailers, now
there are 195,869. In Maine there 1084,
now there are 1172. New Hampshire has
decreased from 1500 to 1288; Vermont
from 684 to 526; Massachusetts has in
creased from 8263 to 8476; Connecticut
from 2873 to 8457; Rhode Island from 905
to 1440; New York bad 40,774, and now
has but 81,001."
An exchange gives the following ss
the origin of the word "Mississippi": "Its
original spelling and the nearest approach
to the Algonquin word 'the father of wat
ers,' is Meche Ssbe, a spelling atill com
monly uaed by tho Louisiana Creoles.
Tonti suggested Micbe Sepe, which, is
somewhat near to the present spelling.
Father Saval still further modernized it
into Micbisipi, which another father, Lar-
rat, softened into Misisipi, the first speci
men of the present spelling. The only
changes since have been to overload the
word with consonants. Marquette added
the first and some other explorer the sec
ond V, making it Mississipi, and so it re
mains in France to this day, with only one
'p.' The man who added the other has
never been discovered, but he must have
been an American, for at the time of the
purchase of Louisiana, the name was gener
ally spelled in the colony with a single 'p.' "

The Anna Farmer and Fruit Grower is
preparing to issue a New Yeara edition
giving aome important statistics concerning
the fruit business of the fruit entres in
southern Illinois. In snticipation of this
publication it gives in its last issue the fol
lowing short table: "From statistics al
ready in hand, we are now sure the show
ing for southern Illinois, in our special
issue of Jsnuary 9th, next, will be the
grandest ever made. Thus far Cobden
ranks first with 446 cars of fruit and vege
tables, 67 cars strawberriei, 27 cars of pie
plant by freight, and 26 cars by express,
a total of 566 car loads. Centralia is
next on the list with 360 csr loads of apples
and 91 carloads of berries. Odin shipped
176 cars of green apples and 7 of dried, and
12 cars of strawberries. Makanda shipped
183 cars of fruit, 49 of apples and 9 of
strawberries, besides small shipments, and
so on through the list. Now will be the
time to ahow up southern Illinois as it is
and we hope the papers will be ordered
The decorations in the Episcopal
church for Christmas and also for the
Clark-Pitcher wedding are worthy of es
pecial notice, for th.ty wore gorgeoua bo
yond description. They were planned by
Mr. H. H. Can dee, wlio was assisted in
executing the plans by Mr. Bayley and Mrs.
Can lee. On either aide of the auditorium,
between the stained glass windows, were
three panels of festoons of evergreen, in
form similar to the church windows and of
equal length and breadth with them
Within each of these panels, as also in each
of the windows, was suspended a banner,
embroidered, fringed and tasselled, and
bearing an appropriate inscription in the
ceatre. The organ and railing and pillars
of the church were also entwined by fes
toons of evergeen; but the rear end of the
grand room presented a magnificent sight.
In the centre, suspended against the wall,
was the dossel cloth, composed of heavy
material of a delicate shade, decorated with
clusters ot water Jillics. This served aa the
back ground for a number of solid braaa
ornaments displayed upon tie altar, and
presented by different membera of the
church in memory of some dear departed
A book rest, with the monogram "I. H. 8."
representing the first three letters in the
Greek "Jeaue," waa presented by Mr. and
Mra. Gilbert, in memory of little Katie
Gilbert. A set of vases with tne
monogram "C. H. R.", the first three lelters
of Christ, in Greek characters, were pre
sented by Mr. and Mrs. M. F. Gilbert, in
memory of their little son Freddie. A pair
of candlesticks by Judge and Mrs. D.J.
Baker, in memory of Mr. John C. White;
and a beautiful cross, by Mr. and Mra. H.
H. Candee, in memory of the latter's
mother. These being arranged in regular
order on the altar made a splendid dis
play. They were selected in Hew York by
Rev. Coan, formerly in charge of the church
hero, but for aome time rector of the chuich
in Brooklyn. On either aide of these orna
ments, on the wall, was a group of three
panels combined, outlined by festoons of
evergreen. These panels were of a rich
red color, somewhat like the sky at certain
stages of some ot the magnificent sunsets
that recently attracted so much attention;
but standing out in bold relief from this
beautiful back ground were large figures
in gilt, being emblems of the Episcopal
church, and around these emblems the
apace was studded with tinty stars. All
these elaborate decorations gave the church
a festive appearance, such as it had prob
ably never before been given, and must
have deeply impressed those who under
stood the meaning of everything. The de
corations are of a substantial character, too,
and will probably bs permitted to remain
for some time.
Wind to Some Purpose.
Enough wind power goes to waste
every year to drive all the nuidiincry
which will bo tisod in tin-Slate for a
century. This is duo to the fa--t that,
as yet, wind-power can only U- tisd
with profit for work not r iiirin;r a
uniform, steady motion. All tho wind
mills in use are to some extent solf
regulating. The wind is constantly
varying in force, ami tho motion of the
mill varies with it, but not to the same
extent Most mills will stop entirely
in a heavy storm. In soinn of the
very large wind engines, a regulator is
used which approximates to uniform
wpeeil. But even if some one. should
maki a mill ,o regulated as io run
steadily at the same speed - with a
varying" wind, the iliiliruliy would still
be but partly oven-nine. Sometimes
just when work i. nn;-t needed, the
wind stops blowing and nothing can be
With tho mills now in ne, and capa
ble of withstanding any storm not
great enough to destroy ordinary build
ings, all the minor opennions of tho
farm,' such as churning, cutting feed,
slicing roots, etc., may be done, pro
vided some cheap method of storing up
power shall be dis .-ovt red. Tin? wind
mill should be so arranged that when
not needed for piunljiu'r. it may run
and store up power, to be used for a
few hours at a time when needed. .
Several ways have been suggested
for storing power, I til all are open to
some objections. One is, to jmnip
water from a lower level to a higher,
into a reservoir to be used iu driving
machinery in the usual way. The olj
jections to this plan which first suggest
themselves aro that there would be
considerable waste from evaporation,
leakage, friction of pumps, etc., and
that tlie machinery needed to utilize
thu water power would be too costly, it
is feared, to allow any such device to
come into general use. Another plan
suggested is to compress air into a
large receptaele and use it to drive the
machinery of the wind-mill.
It is also proposed to store power by
raising a weight slow ly by a train of
wheels, and then tike "power from this
weight in deseeu ding. We are not
aware that any ptaciieaH.- device for
using such a motor has vet been in
vented. The whole -',i'ij ' i is com
mended to t:ie attention of . in-imioiis
ineehanies to the eonli I nt ; --ii!-:.nee
that there is a fnrimi-' io in- nrule by
homebody out of this me led invention.
