One hundred men were at work on tho
old Mississippi levee all day yesterday, for
Col. Taylor, repairing what little damage
had been done by the wind storm and
wavca during the night before. The dam
age consisted principally of abrasions on
the water line and bags of dirt were freely
used to repair them.
Owing to the flood which prevented
trains from making connections at several
southern points, the "Ferguson Dude"
combination did not arrive here yesterday
ami there was no show at the Opera House

comes from the north where trains are run
ning on schedule time; hence no disap
pointment is probablo with regard to this
troupe, which is to appear here next Friday.
Now that it is thoroughly demons
trated to our most titn rous citizens that
our levees are cipable of withstanding the
greatest pressure that can be brought to
bear against them, wo can afford to turn
our thoughts to lighter aud less gloomy
subjects. Laughter should temper our
seriousuess, and nowhere can we better
forget our cares and troubles than at the
phantom dances of the Mystic Krew at

Bulkheading was begun on Ohio levee

the inner side to keep out eighteen inches

The work was not really necessary at the
time; it was done more as a precautionary

Tui'sd'iy afternoon Hiram Hill went
over to Kentucky to look after his houae?.
He lound the storm had s.t three of them
adrift, sending two down the river, the
third he caught and anchored out in the
woods. Going to a neighboring home in
his skiff, he found it j ast falling to pieces,
and some twenty-five men, women and chil
dren huddled up exposed to the storm on
a corn pen that stood on higher ground.
By making three skiff loads, he got them
all to safe place, but without a scrap of

in sirjgle and double file all along the city's
evee where there is Jmost liable te be
danger from the action of strong waves.
Capt. Gray's huge barges were strung along
Ohio levee from the stone depot down to
the whiirtboats, and dpt. Knight had five
of the large government barges taken from
the fleet at East Cairo around to the Mis

along the city's new levee, to be followed
by more if it should proTe necessary. This
will effectu illy guard against tho principal

the new bank. The public here will, of
course, duly appreciate the kindness of
the gentlemen named.

OVER THE CATARACT.
THE CCKHENT LEADING TO DEATH'S WIII11L-
rooii, and now A rKOMINENT MAN
Albany (N. Y.) Journal.
Among the hundreds of thousands of
tourists who have visited Niagara Falls and
st od in awo beforo its miracle of power,
there is, probably, not one who lias failed
to notice the largo sfo e building which
stands directly opposito tho cataract and a
short distance below the railroad suspension
and cantilever bridges. The building is
known to all as tho "Mouteagio House,"
and it lias been a popular placo of n sort
for hundreds of travelers during many
years. Nearly every placo in America pos
sessing unusual natural scenery has its
legend, and a n ost tragical one is located
on the site where this stone building now
stands. Monteagie, a young chieftain of
the Miami Indians, loved the daughter of
a mighty chief among the Iroquois. His
wooing, unlike that of Hiawatha, was not
received with favor by the father chief, and
hence he was compelled to resort to the
usual methods of abduction and flight. The
escaping pair were overtaken on the banks
of the Niagara where tho hotel now stands,
and rather than submit to capture the lov
ers cast themselves into tho cutaract below.
Their bodies were subsequently found at
the mouth of the river clasped in an em
brace which even the cataract could not
sunder. Many occurrences since that time
have tended to make the. Menteagie famous
and it was with surprise that it was learned
a short time since that the edific was to be
entirely transformed, re-arrangod and re
furnished for the benefit of tourists, aud
Feeling that this is a subject in which
the public would take tho unusual interest,
especially as the National Park question
is being s) strongly agitated, a representa
tive of this paper visited Niagara Falls yes
terday and biamed the following facts:
Dr. W. R. Crumb, who 13 about under
taking this important task, is a gent euian
who is well known throughout the land,
having successfully practiced medicine in
the city of.Baffato for nearly thirty years.
He is exceedingly well preserved, though
nearly CO years of age, while his energy and
ambition are something wonderful. In con
versation with the reporter, he said :
"I anticipate great success here, although
a few years ago I should not have dared
undertake it, for I was then what people
call a 'dead man.' "
''How was that, Dactor? How did it
"It was brought about, as such troubles
usually are, by mental and physical de
pression, arising out of troubles and re
verses. The mind has a remarkable effect
upon the body and when one mtets with
misfortunes financially, or in any other
form they are likely to bo accompanied by
misfortunes physically. Such, at all events,
was my case. I was irritable, restless and
feverish. I had a heavy and irregular
pulse, my food did not assimulate, my heart
would throb violently and then stop and
the fluids I passed were profuse, high col
ored and thick with deposits. 1 w;is obliged
to abandon my practice, and also to sus
pend pushing my valuable invention known
as 'Crumb's pocket inhaler,' for the euro of
catarrh and asthma."
" How long did this continue? "
''For about two years. I realized that I
was quite sick but like everyone else I felt
t would only be temporary. The majority
of the people drift along the way a man
might who kniw nothing about these great
Falls and was floating with the current. It
is so eisy to drift, you see. At the end of
of a year, however, my condition became
Bimply horrible. I had a serious irritation
of the throat, a harJ, sluggish pulse, a
swelling of the limbs and numbness extend
ing down the thighs. I had terrible night
sweats and my urine was loaded with albu
rn an and acids. I called in several of the
most skillful physicians but I continued to
sink rapidly. I was the victim of Bright's
disease of the kidneys, and I looked for-
wird with almost certainty to a few weeks
of terrible agony and then death!"
It is painful to describe the experience and
it is sufficient to say that I am entirely
well and that my life has been saved by
means of Warner's Safe Cure, which arrest
ed the disease, effected a cure and has pre
served mo in health ever since."
"Then it was this remedy that saved your

East St. Louis, Feb. 20. The usnl

to tell which maKes a fitting sequel to the
late little romanoe connaoted wltb the name
ot the mayor of East . St. Louis, The
romance alluded to will be remembered as
the one In which the mayor figured as Sir
Launcnlot to two Lady Gulncverca from
tho west side of the water, and directly
after caused their arrest. Annie Knaust
and Kitty Walker are tbe Qulneveres In
question and, acoordlng to their stato

Washington, Feb. 20. The Keifer
By"ton investigation began at 10 o'clock
this morning. Colemiin, attorney for Gen.
Keifer, stated that he would have more
witnesses to-morrow or the day following.
M. L. Wood, attorney, appeared for Mc-
Garrabau. During tbe investigation Keifer
was sworn and a few preliminary questions
put, when Coleman interrupted, and
claimed the rlht of the dfrcct examination
of the witnesses. Hopkins thought the
Committee competent to conduct tbe In-
vi situation. It was finally decided
that Coleman should conduct tbe examina-
in-in-cbief of Knifer's witnesses, and
llnynton cross-examined them. Boyn-
tail's witnesses' examination should be
conduced by the committea as to whether
the McGarrahan bill produced by Koynton,
and tli note 27tb February was offered in
evidence. The note, also printed, asks
the Speaker to recok,nlze Dunnell's motion
to take up tbe McGarrahan bill. Tbe wit
ness threw It in the waste basket. Boynton
came later and waited until tbe others were
gone and then asked what could be done in
the Dtuinell matter. Tbe witness replied
that Dunnell should be recognized at once.
lie also pointed out that this
was a private bill against
public measures. Boyuton said
Keifer, what do you suppose I think of
you?" He said he hoped that it was some
thing sood.IIe replied, "I think you are a
fool." Keifer replied with the story told on
the floor of tbe House. He produced a
copy of McGarrahan's bill, and said it was
tbe Identical bill bandou him by Uoynlon,
during the Interview. He then went on to
give details ofjbe conversation with Boyn
ton. Boynton used this expression,
'There are millions In It, and millions to
divide." Boyuton said he had friends
with him, and It was enough to make tbem
all rich. Tbe witness replied, "Boynton
you surprise me, coming with a corrupt
proposition; am surprised to find you in
such a corrupt lobby scheme." Boynton
On cross-examination Keifer reaffirmed
tbe truth of bis speech In tbe House. The
letter sent to Boynton the preceding night
Boynton asked to put on record as part ot
the cvidonce. Keifer was asked it he re
garded the requested note ns improper.
He replied no. I he wbole charge or at
tempted corruption is based on the alleged
interview and Keifer's impression of tho
Interview which took place on the first of
