A correspondent from Anna dated Jan

that the thermometer stood for days as fol

to 80 below, which makes from 8 to 5 de

scriptions for the Encyclopaedia Britannica,
which tbe publishers have imported for the
United States. Mr. Dean will begin his
canvass of the city this week. Thev ork
he offers is a standard one and has received
favorable notices from the high
est authoritv everywhere, of which
the following from the prin
cipal of the normal school at Cleveland
Ohio, is a sample: "It is needless forme
to say that the ninth edition of the Eocy
clopsiia Britannica is immeasurably the
best reference library in the world. To no
otherource can the inquirer go with so
great a degree of certainty that his infor
mation shall -be reliable. More than any
other work more than all others together
it is accepted as an authority by all
m dern scholars."
Charleston Courier: "Last Thursday
news reached here that there was a man
named Walker in enr city who was needed
at Little Rxk, Ark, charged with attempt
ing to forge a bank check. It seems that
this man Walker was an escaped 4trutT'
from the Arkansas penitentiary, and while
there was the bock keeper in the institution,
but being a trusty be bad several opportu
nice to leave and availed himself ot the
same a short time ao. He procured a
blank check of Mr. sol Roeeatein, of this
city, a few dir before his capture, and
forged the name of Zeh. Ward, the peniten
tiary steward, to tbe check for 1 1,000 on a
New Orleans bask, and then deposited the
same in bank at Cairo. He left Cairo and
came over here and daisied to have mutil
ated the bank check be got from Resea
stem, and ajkei for asttter, which was
handed hies. In ths meantime tbe eheck
deposited in Cairo was seat to New Or
leans for payment, and a te'.egiaa was sent
back to tbe Cairo back, saving that the
same was a forgery. Mr. Roaenste;n re
ceived a dispatch, squiring after Walker
and the fellow being still in the town, he
was spotted by Mr. Ed Reeder and arrest
ed on a telegram by John Hisey, the deputy
constable. He plead guilty and was taken
by Prosecuting Attorney Russell back to
Little Rock, where a reward was offered
for him, snd there he remains in his old
home. Tbe capture and safe confinement
was done rather quickly by the different
parties interested. Mr. Rusell returned
from Little Rock and says that the 'pen'
authorities are glad to have Walker again
under their control."
