There ia much loud complaint about

Water in the pipes seems to be the trouble;
but the matter will bear a thorough investi

and interferes muoh with the landing of the

morning the passengers coming in on
the Texas & St. Louis road, to the number
of thirty or forty, had to walk orer to Cairo
on the ice because the steamer could not
land at the Incline. Skating and sleigh
riding is fine on the rirer.

The failures ia the United States dur
ing the year just closed, according to Brad-

1883, or over 84 per cent In Canada there
were 1,480 failures reported, as against 843
in 1883. It is believed the number of fail
ures of the past year is the largest erer re-
corded in the United States.

unlawfully demonstrative in their behavior
at the same house. Like Clavin they first
attacked a youog fellow who was at the
door before them and then broke in the
door. Ther will probably be made to
answer to-day. These young fellows seem
to have little or no self-respect, and that is
perhaps nobody's business but their own;
but they seem also to entertain very little
respect for the law and its representatives,
and for public decency and peace, which is
everybody's business. It is one of the glor
ious privileges of tbis great and glorious
country, that any one who choses may
wallow with the swine in the mire, provided
he wallows so as not to offend or disturb his
fellows. But there are some young fellows
here, as everywhere, no doubt, who seem to
be determined to attract public attention
by enacting the parts of dissolute
rowdies. They will probably ere long be
cured of tbis banefull prospensity.
Since the 1st of January the firm of
Lancaster & Rice was changed to the Lan
caster & Rice Lumber and Manufactur
ing company, with a capital stock of $10,-
000. Incorporation papers were applied
for and have in ptrt arrived. When all shall
have been received the company will be or
ganized by the election of president, secre
tary, treasurer, etc. Messrs. Lancaster
Rice have for some time been conducting
one of the large industrial establishments in
the city and their business, always large,
grew so rapidly during the last year that a
different organization was deemed necessary
to oversee and conducted it with needed dis
patch. The company now runs one of the
largest lumber yards in the city, a planing
mill and extensive door and sash factory.
It employs constantly an architect to make
estimates on contracts of various kinds, and
a force ot mecbanica to execute the con
tracts. Its business extends over all the
railroads centering here up and down the
rivers and it has now under full headway
what will be, when finished, the finest pub
ic building in the city, the Safford Memor
al Library. .Under the new organization it
will probably continue to rapidly increase
its business snd facilities for carrying it on.
Our entire stock of Clothing, Hats, Caps
and Gents' Furnishing Goods. A business
which has been carried on for the past 16
years situated in the business portion of the

mined to go out of the clothing business
we will offer great inducements to cash
buyers or such terms aa may be agreed upon.

FRIDAY NIGHT NEXT.
The Chicago Tribune has this to say of
"Our Strategists," who appear next Friday
evening, January 11, at the Opera House:
M 'Our Strategists' is one of the funniest
and most amusing performances ever seen.
The end of the third act caused almost a
panic in the bous, people leaned over their
chairs on their neighbors' shoulders,
doubled up and laughed yes roared, until
many of them looked like so many ap
poplictic strokes. The company was called
before the curtain at the end of each act.
No such demonstration has ever been wit
nessed in the academy."
THKT FROMI8K TO NOT DO FO ANT MORS.
The pr'miuent young lady, leader of
society, who has ben so generously distri
buting morsels of her intellect to be nib
bled at had better not allow her impulsive
generosity to carry her away ao far as to
furnishe too many pieces of that savory
dish "ber mind" to the gilt edge youth of
nur town. Young gentlemen, as a rule,
like pie, an 1 appreciate the efforts of any
young lady wbo strives to furnish them
wi'h it, and this young lady's mind may be
similar to pie, but then it is sad to think
that in all probability tbis young lady will
wake up some fine morning and find she
has no "mind," that she has given it all
away, that she has not even the "leastest
smitch" to give to the next young gentleman
who ha. the audacity to invite her to an
entertainment. Well, we feel sorry; we
solemnly swear never again to be seen at
the Opera House; never to appear at any
balls or entertainments whatever; dance
and revel in the future, we will consider as
mare snares of the devil ; we will adjourn to
the Compress, call for a hack, drive to
Mound City, and never come back. We
forever forswear opera glasses, canes, eye
glasses and kid gloves; all those who have
mustache, will immediately cut them off;
we will give up bear'a oil on our Hyperian
curl, and will return to good old-fashioned
lard; and in spit, of the earnest solicitations
of our fashionable shoemaker, we will throw
aside our "cloth-tops" and stick to our
"arctics."! So hope to be forgiven and be
received once more in the fold of the faith
ful, io the Inner circle, of "civilized society. '
A Nerw Otrl.
Novelties in girls are naturally look
ed upon with suspicion. The present
stylo of girl has been thoroughly tested
and found to be perfectly satisfactory,
and when any one claims to have de
vised a nw and improved style ol
girl, tho claim usually proves, upon
examination, to be a ridiculous fail
ure. From the West there comes the story
of a newly-invented girl of startling
originality. She differs from previous
girls in the fact that her left log is
attached to her right shoulder, while
hor right arm occupies the place
usually occupied by a left leg. Girls
with extra limbs or no limbs at all have
frequently been exhibited to an unsym
pathizing public, but the distribution
of the new girl's limbs is something
absolutely novel, and as such deserve,
The claims made in behalf of tho
new girl are many, and some of them
at least appear to be justifiable. For
example, it ia asserted that a woman
who has a hand .where the left foot is
usually found can pick up pins and
other small things from the carpet
without stooping. She can also hold a
rug in place while sweeping it, and
can drag a cat out from under a sofa
and turn her out of the room with the
greatest easo. When she drops her
prayer-book in church sho can pick it
up and place it on the seat beside her
without attracting the slightest atten
tion, and she can climb into a carriage
with the aid of her hand-foot if it niuy
be so called with an ease and grace of
which the ordinary woman is quite in
capable. Having a foot whore other women
have a right hand, the new stylo of
girl would make an admirable family
disciplinarian, since she could adminis
ter punishment to children without the
trouble of removing her slipper. She
would have an immense advantage
over other girls when wearing beautiful
and costly hosiery, since she could
display the stocking on her right upper
limb with no more impropriety than is
Involved in displaying a neatly-fitting
plove. So, too, her advantages for
displaying a neat and artistic boot
would be quite unequaled, and she would
be able to button both her own boots
with less trouble than ordinary women
find in putting on their gloves.
These are claims which, it much be
admitted, are well founded. We may,
however, conoede everything that "is
claimed on behalf of the new girl and
still disapprove of her. What is this
girl to do when on receiving an accept
able offer of marriage she wishes to
clasp her arms round her lover's neck?
Will he be likely to feel flattered when
the soft foot touch of a Western
feminine caresses his left car? When
the marriage ceremony is in progress
how will he obey the clergyman's
order to take the bride's right hand in
hisP And then how will the new girl
be able to make the simplest article of
food without literally putting her foot
The worst feature of the new girl,
however, is her inability to walk.
Nothing ha. been said by her advocates
on this subject, which is a sufficient
reason for assuming that they have
nothing favorable to sav. Is the
girl expected to walk on both feet? If
so, n is sate to say mat sne cannot ao
it, and if she could her appearance would
be so grotesque that she would never
venture outside of her own room. Un
doubtedly she is expected to walk on
one foot and one hand. Need any
thing more be said to prove that she is
a painful failure.
This attempt to make the modern
girl a compromise between the biman
and the quadrumana is certainly in
genious, but it is doomed to the fate
of all previous attempts at improving
girls. Our girls need no improvements,
ana it will take a greater intellect than
that of Cuvier to devise any possible
change in them which would not be for
