A Grinning Death's Head
is scarcely more abhorrent to a refined ob
server, than a row ot discolored teeth made
visible by a smile. Correct the hideous
blemish with delightful and healthful
BOZODONT, which whitens yellew teeth,
imparts ruddiness and hardness to colorless,
ushsalthy gums, and a floral balminess to
the breath. The feminine mouth becomes
wondrouily attractive in eonaequence of its
use. Leading actresses and centatrices re
gard it as incomparable.

During five days our police circles have
been a stranquil as is the store of the mer
chant who doesn't advertise. But yester
day this painful quietude was disturbed
by a man who got on a "high lonesome."
He was pounced npon by a dozen or more
watchful minions of the majestic law, yank
ed into Magistrate Comings' court, and
fined the usual sum, the court smiling be
nignly upon the culprit who had so oppor
tunely aroused him from a fit of enui that
had threatened to become chronic.
The arrangements for the phantom
dance to be given by the Mystic Krew
at Krew and Temperance balls are progress
ing favorably and all indications, wind
weather and water permuting, point to an
enjoyable time. The Erew have thorough
confidence in the stability of our levees,
and their ability , to stand any pressure
brought against them, hence they have not
faltered in their arrangements for the Mardi
Gras festivites and propose to carry out
their original intention to the letter. It
The little gust of wind yesterday af
ternoon, ssys Sergeant Ray, blew at the
rate of sixty miles per hour. It blew for
but a few minutes and it is probably due to
the warning given by the sergeant several
hours before hand that so little damage was
done in the city and harbor. As it was
only several signs were blown down in dif
ferent parts of the city; and the yawl and
jack staff were torn from the steamer W. B.
Duncan lying at East Cairo. Ths yawl
fortunately fell onto the boat's deck and
was not much damaged.

By recent decree of Pope Leo XIII,
nnder tho heading of "Urbis et Orbis", it is
ordained that tho litany of Loretto in honor
of the Virgin Mary be recited bv the of
ficiating priest after every mass celebrated
throughout ths world; and that in addition
to the titles conferred upon the Virgin in
the litany, a new title, that of "R gina
sacratissimi Rosarii," (queen of the most
aoiy rosary) be reverently pronounced
aloud. The duty of reciting the rosary of
erv daily is enjoined npon every Catholic
lamily, as it is especially efficatious in in
voking the aid of the Mother of God against
the enemies who now threaten tho church.
-In the circuit court vesterdav John
Kelly pleaded guilty to robbery and was
remanded back to jail to be sentenced on a
future day. Kelly is one of the two men
who assaulted John T. Durham, ot Capo
Girardoau, as bs was walking along Fourth
street in this city some time ago and
mhhflri him of a silver watch. The two
robbers walked quietly up Commercial
avenue and were captured by Officer Ma
hanny. While tbey were being escorted to
jail, eno of the fellows dropped the watch
from bis sleeve, which act was seen by Offi
cers Cain and Boughner. At the prelimi
nary ' examination both denied the charge,
but they were bound over, the court taking
charge of tho watch and binding the victim
over also, for his appearance at this term
of court to testify against the robbers.
Kelly's partner refuses to plead guilty and
will be tried. The court disposed ot no
other cases yesterday, but decided several
motions of more or less importance.
Some days ago The Bulletin vsi-
tured to express briefly its displessuro at
bens that stood around idly in barn yards
while eggs were fluctuating between thirty
and forty cents per dozen. In proof, now,
that the paragraph was too general in its
application, Mrs. D. Green, of Cache, sent
us yesterday some very convincing testi
mony in the nature ot eggs. One of these,
laid by a favorite brown Cochin China ben,
weighed three and a half ounces and meas
ured seven and five-eighths inches one way
and six two-eighths the other. The other
wu as little as the first was Urge. It was
also a ben's production, but seemed, at first
glance, to be a bird's egg, tor it was not
any larger. lie two .were remaraaoie
specimens of their kind, and we are willing
"to modify the former paragraph.
Fire was discovered in the floor of 8.
Mann & Bro's cloth ing store, corner of
Sixth street and Commercial avenue, about
11 o'clock last night. The alarm was
promptly given and the fire department
rushed to the aescue; but before the engines
got to work the tire was nearly extinguished
with buckets of water which were brought
and judiciously uted by men first on the
spot. There is every reason to believe tnat
the fire was set by some one of evil design,
for when a hole wss chopped through the
floor from above charred fra
grants of kindling were dis
covered lying on top of dry goods boxes
in the basement aid ' close under the floor.
The floor underneath was also charred for
a considerable space, showing thai the fire
had gained good head-way before breaking
through the floor. Asitwaa very little
damage was dene to the floor and nono to
the stock and fixtures. The basement is
unoccupied and contains several feet of
State's Attorney Leek has laid himself
open-'te tho grave suspicion of having sue-
combed to the wiles of some bewitching
fairy, or fairies, who bu or have designs
against him and others who, like he, are
still willing or unwilling worshippers at
tho shrine of celibacy. This grave sus
picion is justified by his announcement last
evening, officially made (we are reliably in
formed) to a company of young men, that
the state law prohibits stags from running
at large, and that it is his unalterable pur
pose to cause indictments to be found by
the grand jury now in session, against all
animals of the species named, above a cer
tain age, fouud running at large in the
city to-day. It is understood that concert
ed action was agreed upon and inaugurat
ed at a late hour last night, by the victims
of this plot of the state's attorney and his
secrst allies; but what the nature of the
measures decided upon is we were not per
mitted to know. There's music in the air,
though, in the sweet purty quick, and don't
you let it escape your ears.
Capt. W. P. Halliday has returned
from Washington where he attended the
Mississippi river convention as delegate
from Cairo, He is satisfied with the work
of the convention, believing that under all
the circumstances it was ths very best that
could have been done. He does nut con
cur in tiie views expressed by fit. Louis
papers of the resolutions adopted by the
convention, and he does believe that these
expressions are prompted, to a certain ex
tent, bjjaalousy. Tbe convention, says Capt.
Halliday, was a large body of representa
tive men, as fine looking a body of men as
he ever saw, and they were guided in their
deliberations by wisdom. He believes
thai astrong impi8sion was made by the
convention upon congress, a many mem
bers of the latter attended the sessions of
the former and cultivated mutual acquain
tances. The object of the convention was
to arouse congress to a realizing sense of
the importance and necessity of improving
the Mississippi river and this object was
accomplished. If, incidentally and indi
rectly, it was admitted by tbe convention
that the Mississippi was net tbe only stream
in the country worthy of notice by the
federal congress, that fact could not well
bo distorted into an evidence of weakness,
but was rather a proof of a disposition to
be just. The advocates of Mississippi river
improvement can well afford to be just, for
tho rightiousness of their cause is no longer
a matter of controversy among intelligent,

day since tbe flood abated, and numerous
additional cases of destitution are reported.
Many of the victims In addition to having
been systematically plundered by the
waters were thrown out of employment by
the work shops being devastated, and un

Since that has Just gained publicity. It

Mary Williams, a fine looking brunet.
She was invited by some of the countrj

introduoed to some of the best people of
Wurrenton. Afur a few days, how
ever, suspicions were aroused that Miss
Williams was sailing nnder false eolors.
Close watch upon her convinced tbe doubt
ers that she was s bad woman. An Indig
nation meeting was held by the old men of
the town and a vlgilanoe committee ap
pointed to take the Intruder out, give her a
sound flogging, and an unconditional order
to leave. Tbe committee visited tbe house
ot the vlotlm at midnight, and, pulling her
out ot bed, publicly flogged her on the
street with buagy traces. While the

Norwich, Feb. 12. Tbe terrible trage
dy wbicb oocurred here Monday It the ab
aorbing iborae of discussion. Tbe mur
derer, Frank V. Conant, wu tbe bead
salesman In tbe silk department ot the dry
goods bouse of Hyslep, Porteout & Mit
cbel, and Al MoClulIan, a contortionist and
trapeze performer, wu the victim. Tbe
crime was evldeptly premeditated. For
several days Couant bad been urging Mo
Clellan to take a drive, and only Mo.iday
succeeded tn galnlag bis consent. As tbey
drove off Conant handed bis companion a
cit;ar. Up and down tbe best avenues tbe
carriage wa driven, aud tben Conant said,
"Come ovor to tae bouse, Allie, and see
the folks." Tbe oarrlage wu driven
to tbe cottage oa Elizabeth atreet,
and Conant and MuClellan alighted
and passnd Into the house. It Is not
definitely known what oocurred in the
dwelling, In wblch, besides the two men,
were Conant's two little children, 6 aod S
years of age, aud a young girl In charge ot
them. Soou the men passed out to see a
favorite oolt of Cooaal's, la the barn.
Neighbors notloed tbe two men enter tbe
barn, talking pleasantly. Kot five minutes
bad elapsed before tbe sound of a pistol
shot was board. Tbe door flew open and
MeCiellan daubed out, olotely followed by
Conant wltb bis revolver still smoking and
raised lor a second shot. Tbe first ball bad
passed through MoClellan's silk bat.- Tbe
second sbot struck blm lu tbe leg, but be
apraug widely on tbrougb the yard, still
pursued by tbe murderer. Us ran across
the stieet, but Conant stopped at the gate,
aud, raising bis revolver,
TOOK SLOW, DELIBIRAT! AIM
at tbe back of the man wbo wu now across
tbe street In tbe act of springing from tbe
jutter to tbe sidewalk. Tbe revolver was
discharged and tbe bullet troe to Its mark,
piercing MoClellan's back and
lodging tn bit bsart. He gave a
single, sharp cry of "murder." fell In tbe
gutwr and rolled over on bit baok wltb bis
bis open eyes flitd on tbe usassln. Con
ant, ' still gruplug bis weapon, coolly
crossed tbe street and stooped over bis vlo
tlra, evidently Intending to lire soother
shot if bis work did not satlify bim. Mo
Clellan's eyes, which bad closed, now
opened again and fixed their glare for a
moment on the faue of tbe maa wbo was
li aning above. Tbe eyes closed again, aud
tbe man was dead. Conant ooolly examined
tbe body and exclaimed with an oath,
"I've tixed you now, and you'll bave
nothing more to do with my wife." After
wiping bis revolver, wblob was a large one
of thirty-eight calibre, bs put it up and
walked away. Conant went almoet directly
to the new First Baptist Churob on West
Main street, of which bis wife is a member,
aud entered tbe conference room. A
prayer meeting was in session, and bis
wife exhorting as be went In. He took a
seat, and sent a boy to oall ber, and
wben she came out, be said, "I bave killed
Al MuClellan." She exclaimed, "My God,
Frank, I nerer thought It would oome to
this." lie tben escorted ber borne. Halt
LATKR Bit WAS ARHKSTKD
by Officer Joseph Bur.llck. He gave up
bis revolver and went along readily to tbe
pollee station. He would say nothing, al
though he wu desirous to know If "Al wu
dead." Upon being told that he was be
bade sood-bye to bis wife and two children
and quietly left them. Although Mrs.
Conant's lips are sealed tbe motive for tbe
orlme Is bolleved to have been the relation
wblch existed between MoClellan and
Conant's wife seven years ago, before the
latter's marriage, a matter wblob Conant
learned comparatively reoently from a teb
ond woman, and which, it It said,
bo compelled bis wife to ooa
toss. Tbe cool deliberation wltb
which the murder wu planned and the
hypocritical friendship whloh Conant man
ifested towards MoClellan, mark the crime
as tbe most fl iudish In tbls oommunlty
since the notorious Cobb-Blsbop cue.
Mrs. Conant is prostrated wltb grief.
Conant remains oaliu. He Is a tall, fair
looking man, about 89 years old, and hu
been employed In the Hyslop store for near
ly twenty years. He was a trusted olerk
and bis Judgment was considered first
class. Couant was a great admirer of horse
flesh, and has always kopl one or two fut
horses. Pleasant and Invariably courteous
and kind, he was tbe last person to whom
tbe crinio of murder would appear likely to
attaoh. Alfred MuClellan, tbe Victim,
was a (oed-looktnff, smootb-faced, blue
eyed man, of little below medium height.
He, too, It a native ot Norwich, and wu
'XI years old. Formerly a shop band In
