B. F. Duncan, a sawmill man, well
known in this and adjoining counties, died

Hillman, on the 1st of this month.
An old citizen says that ths winter ot
1864 wu worse than this for cold. Then
the Ohio river was one solid mass of ice as
far as they could see both ways from the
levee and remained so for eight or ten
days. The thermometer reached 24 below
zero. Other parts of the country were sim
Probabilities for to-day here are warmer
temperature and light precipation of some
kind. There was a strong rise of the ther
mometer at Bismarck, North Platte and
Dodge City according to last evening's re
port, 40 10 and 17 degrees respectfully.
But the wind was not favorable to bringing
the wave down here and at all other points
reported from a fall occurred.
During Thursday night one of the
boats tied np at the East Cairo bank, the
Alice Brown, was broken lose oy the float

no steam up and could not blow her whistle
for help, and her bell failed to make itself
heard on this side ot the stream. So she
got up steam and when some distance be
low the city started her wheels and came
back all right.
Constable LTaz Martin took the jail
gang out yesterday morning and put them
to work on the root of the jail and jailor's
residence pouring water down the front and
sides. But for this, both these buildings,
which stood directly opposite the burning
building, would probably hare been de
stroyed, for even as it wu, the heat crack
ed about a dozen panes of glass in the front
windows of ths buildings.
The absence of gu fixtures in the cir
cuit court room at the court house causes
the court to loss nearly at hour every even
ing, or compells it to sit in ths dark or by
candlelight. By 5 o'clock everything in
the room is dark. Little by little the light
shed upon the scene by the last rays of the
dying sun, reflected from the several bald
heads of lawyers snd jurors, grows lsss and
weaker until inky blackness envelopes all.
When the court room wu "reconstructed"
some time ago the old fixtures were taken
out to be replaced by new ones which were
ordered some time ago at the direction of
the county beard. But the new fixtures
have not yet arrived.
A young man named L. R. Silcot,
night telegraph operator for the Texas and
St. Louis railroad company at Bird's Point,
has been missing since Mondsy night. He
walked over on the ice Monday and wu
seen here for the lut time about 11 o'clock
Monday night, somewhat "boosy" with
liquor. He wu about twenty-three years
of age and hu mother and sister living at
Bird's Point, who have been here for sever
al days, lamenting his mysterious disap
psarance. They say he hu not been in the
habit of going out nights, but remained
steadsly at home or at his post of duty.
It is supposed that he started back over the
ice Monday night, in his dizzy state, and
either was lost in ths cotton woods below
the city and frozen, or fell off the ice in the
river. A search of the city by the officers
yesterday brought no new facts to light.
The persistent efforts of Postmaster
Murphy and Congressman Thomas, to have
s system of mail boxes established here and
men appointed to collect the mall from
them daily, have fioally been partially
crowned with success. The postmaster
general has ordered that ten boxes be put
up and an extra man employed to give the
collection of mail that may accumulate in
them his special attention. The boxes will
be put up, Captain Murphy informs us, by
the 1st of February. They will be put np
in the business part of ths city snd so dis
tributed as to be most convenient where
they will be most used probably from
Tenth street down. Jndge J. J. Bird has
been appointed, at the suggestion of Capt.
Murphy, as assistant mailing clerk, and
be will attend to the collection of the mail

In the circuit court yesterday ths case
of Mahflffy vs. the Wabaih, St. Louis and
Pacific Railroad company wis concluded,
the jury finding a verdict for the plaintiff
about 5 o'clock last evening after having
been out an hour. The amount sue i fur
was five thousand dollars for killing ol
defendant's husband at Eldorado last year,
and the jury gave defendtnt the full
amount. Motions for new trial, etc., will
probably be made, and the case taken up
to the higher court, as usual in such crises.
The next cs.se taken up was that of
the Cairo and Vincennes Railroad company
for use of Robert Bell vs. Judge F. Bross,
in which plaintiff seeks to enforce payment
ot a note for $300, given to said R. R. Co.
by defendant and subsequently turned
over by the company to Mr. Bell. At a
previous trial the esse was decided against
defendant; but he was not permitted to
prove that the note had been given by him
with the express understanding that plain
tiff's road should not run down Commer
cial, and upon this ground the higher court
remanded it back for a rehearing. Plain
tiffs are represented by Messrs. Linegar,
Lacisden and Leek, and the defendant by
Messrs. Oreen and Gilbert. The evidence
for the defense was all in when court ad
journed last night.

RE-ENGAGEMENT OF THE HAV
ERLY COMEDY CO.
The play "Our Strategists" at the Opera
House last night took like wild fire with
the liberal audience in attendance, and
from the rising to the falling of the cur
tain every one was either in a constant gig
gle or in a state of cboaking laughter.
By special request upon the part of
many of our people, the manager of the
company has been induced to remain over
one day longer, giving matinee this after
noon, repeating the programme this even
ing. To do this was necessary to cancel
the Belleville engagement, where the com
pany were to open to-night.
The play is absolutely the funniest pro
duction which was ever presented for the
entertainment of a Cairo audience, snd we
assure those "who failed to witness the per
formance last night, that it will more than
repay their attendance.

A Little Ostnse TkAt Mela's Work.
St. Loots, Jan. 11. A cats ot bite
bitten was reported tn Polios Hsadquarteri
to-day by Officer O'Malley of the Post Of
fice corner. Yastarday afternoon about 8
o'olock two young men entered L. A. Co
quard's brokers offloe, al the southeast cor
ner ot Tblrd an4 Fins streets. The first
young man stated that be wanted to buy s
twenty-dollar gold ooln, and produced a
VI00 bill with wbloh to pay for It. He
asked for change and reoelved It, but
wanted one $00 bill aid several small bills.
This request wu evidently road to oon
fuse the cashier, who didn't, however,
confute as easily as the young man ex
pected. During the talk ha put the $50
bill In his pooket, and pushing back the
940 in smsll bills demanded back his $100
bill. Ha ws requested to wall a few mo
ments until the cash on the desk was bal
anced, and he Indignantly left ths offloe.
About an hour later be sent in his confed
erate and later same tn himself. In the
meantime It was discovered that be was
trying to "work" an extensive "pu-h
back e.ime," and Officer O'Malley was
sent for. The pair took their leav&and are

Sr. Joskfr, Jan. 11. This olty has been
st.irtlod two or three times recently by the
reports of (he failure of the Wyetb Hard
ware Company, one of the largest bouses
In the West. The sales last year were
greater tbsn ever before. The rumor, It
appears, originated In the statement that
Mr. Wra. M. Wyetb, who Is largely
interested in cattle in New Mexico,
and the company had lost heavily
recently. This is an outside
dsal, and does not concern the
firm. Mr. Wyeth built an elegant resi
dence a few years ago at a eost of $75,000.
This he covered with a mortgage a few days
ago. There are several cattle companies
in St. Joseph. The people here have an
immense amount of money Invested In
catt e and mines, and the losses the past
year have been very heavy.
