lasted about two weeks, and besides the
trials which resulted in acquittals or mis

jail, whose cases go over to the next term,
principally because witnesses could not be
procured on account of the flood.

alone in the house, his wife being in St.

terday morning by a woman who was in
the habit of making his bed and cleaning

who have taken a look at the circumstances
that tho old man burned to death.
At Bird's Point everything is under wa
ter. The railroad inclines aro out of sight
entirely and tho several railroad buildings
are almost afloat. Where ordinarily thero
is a great bustle of cars, engines, men, aud
a network of tracks and twitches, there
is now one shoet of water, broken
only by a true or a tumble-down house
Out of twenty or twenty-five houses, Mr,
Bird's house is tho only residence there now
It stands on a good brick foundation, on
the highest gruund in the place, but it is
also surrounded by water and no exit from
the premises is possible except in a skiff.
Mr. Bird still occupies the house with his
family, feeling secure under circumstances
which would have driven almost any one
else away long ago. But for the present
thero is really no danger to Mr. Bird's
premises. It is when the water goes down
within its banks that the river cuts away
the land there, taking away great slices dur

The virturo of Bermuda grass as a
protectiT of tmbankmeata against tho ac
tion of water is very generally acknowled
ged, but perhaps few people have a correct
conception of its full value. An item in
the New Orleans Times Democrat of the
1' 1 InctAnt li.itnt. Ik finial fltanBl.li f-....
Kansas City, Mo., says, "the river is rcn-
m.no over the levee between hero and
Chicot City, three miles above, in at least
twecty places, but so far has dosb mo dam
age to , as it is an old levee and well sod-
ed with Bermuda grass." Thus it will
be seen that, even under the severest test,
the grass preserves the leveo intact, and, it
does this by forming a compact net-work
of roots in the ground, from
th; surface to probably six
inches down, holding the earth together as
effectually as though it were enclose 1 in
sicks, or even more so. The street com
mittee of our city council have already
reed upon giving the outer slope of the
city's levee an armor of this character, the
work to b?gin next spring. The crass will
be set out in spots and will spread rapidly
over the ground, so that by next fall or
winter there will be to need of bag revet
ments on thelevee.
About nooo yesterday the work of re-
moving what lit!. e buikhed;ng bad been
put up on Ohio levee from Twelfth street
down, was begun, and by evening the Ohio
rivr front showed very little evidence of
the preparations that had been made for a
fight that was never fought. The street had
been previously cleaned op, the accumu
lated dirt scraped from the gravel road-bed,
and presented tho appearance of a house
floor that had just been thoroughly
belabored by a knight of the broom whose
uniform peace of mind and love of tidiness
had not been disturbed by, any threats of
danger from without. As stated before,
the bulkheading was not really needed, and
it was never entirely finished, though tho
opening, left could have been closed and
additional dirt thrown against it all along,
n a very brief time. The portion of tbo
leveo taken charge of by the Illinoi. Cen
tral railroad company was not buikhcaded
at all, and it did not need to be, for it stood
eighteen inches or two feet above the walor
line all along, and was dry as a cork and as
solid as a safe from the first to last. But
the Illinois Central company rendered ma
terial aid to tho authorities in what work
they had to do here, besides watching their
tracks above and below here and doiug con
siderable work on them to keep tho road
open. The city's new levee is left in fine
condition by the flood, and would have
shown little or no effect of it, but for tho
Bevero wind storm of some nichta rn.
From twenty-five to fifty men were kept on
watch all along the bank every night of
last week, and considerable work was done
just before, during and after tho wind storm
of Tuesday. AWait three thousand sacks
were used in tbo work aud Alderman Blake
furnished several thousand rations in all.
Thebirgosflo kindly stationed along tho
levee, by order ef Capt. Knight, obviated
the necessity of much work on that portion
of the new levee. Altogether, Cairo came
out of this siege in splendid trim ; un-
touehed, we may say, for the little
work necessary to repair tho abrasions
by tho waves, on the new levee will
not amount to anything, comparatively.
Through the wiso forethought and timely,
well-directed action of the administration,
not only in strengthening the city's own
levees, but in effecting a sort ol harmonious
combination in the work with the Trust
Property company and tho Illinois Central
company, by which all tho levees around
the city were strengthened for the mutual
good, Uairo is permitted to stand forth
trom among all her sister cities on tbo
great rivers as the only one that comes un.

A Daring Bobbery la 6hleaoro.
Chicago, III.. Feb. 25. A daring rob
bery was committed Saturday evening, at
7:30 o'clock, on a Larrabeo street car, at
tho corner of Fifth avenuo and Randolph
street. John Qultach.a German machinist
of South Chicago, was robbed of J10 by
four foot-pads, who boarded the car at
the above point just as It was about to
start on its trip north. Mr. Ouitsch drew
his mouth's salury tho day before,
besides a considerable amount ot
other money from various sources, and
came to tuis cuy to visit mends. Arriv
ing here early lu the eveulng, he went to
the comer of Randolph street and Fifth
avenue to take a Larrabee street car. Ho
was accompanied by a friend, who fortu
nately escaped the robbers. About the
time Mr. (Jultsch boarded the car four
young men also got on, entering In pairs
by either door. Two of them held tho
doors, while their companions walk
ed up to the South Chi
cago machinist and proceeded to go
through his pockets. Ouo of the pair
caught him about the neck and struck
him in the face with a blunt Instrument,
which rendered hlin partially insensible.
Tho other began searching his pockets
and drew out tho roll containing the
8210. The whole thing occurred be
fore the machinist or his companion had
time to realize what had happened,
and as the conductor of the cur
was busily engaged assisting the driver
to hitch the horses, he was also
Ignorant of tho affair. The robbers all
escaped by the way they had entered, and
it was fully ten minutes afterward when
the police were notified. It may be well
to state, however, that there wero three
policemen within a block of the car when
the robbery was being committed. To
one of them the case was reported and
he telephoned It to tho detective olllcc.
Mr. Qultsch subsequently reported the
case In person, and gave such an ac
curate description of the robbers that
they cannot be missed. He believes that
one or two of them followed him from
South Chicago, knowing that he had the
money with him, and meeting their com
panions here, planned and committed the
robbery. Although n reporter saw tho
unfortunate victim leave the detective
oltice after he made his complaint, both
of the lieutenants of that department de
nied that any robbery had been commit
ted when questioned subsequently.
Last night Detectives Rohan and Meyer
arrested Christian Shroeder, at the corner
of Randolph and ClaTk streets, on suspi
cion that he was connected with the affair.
Work In the Committees.
Washington, D. C, Feb. 25. Railroad
Commissioner Armstrong was heard by the
House Committee on Pacific Railroads In
advocacy of the passage of the Edmunds
bill, which proposes to amend existing
laws so that a specific sum rather than a
percentage of the net earnings should be
required to be paid by the Pacilic rail
roads. The House Committee on Public Lands
to-morrow take another vote on the
proposition to declare the forfeiture of
the New Orleans & Baton Kouge "Hack-
bone" Railroad's land grants. Members
of the committee say the proposition to
forfeit the grant will be adopted.
The Avondale Horror.
Cincinnati," O. Feb. 25. The Town
Hall at Avondale could not contain the
people who thronged to the funeral of the
murdered Taylor family. Several speak
ers held that the men who committed the
deed were deserving of no more sympathy
than they themselves had shown, when
beating out the brains of the helpless
ainily. Elder Scott hinted that they
should be hanged to the nearest lamp
pout. Resolutions were adopted calling
for the swift punishment of the murder
ers, and for a searching Investigation as
to whether there was any complicity hi
the crime on the part of those who pur
chased the bodies.

KASSAM OX THE M I L' ATI' X IX THE S H IAX.
Lonixix, Feb. Mr. Kassam, a man
of many languages, and well able to
speak concerning Abyssinia, iu an inter
view iu regard to the published report
that the Government lias ordered Admi
ral Hewitt to send Commodore Wolfe to
King John of Abyssinia to negotiate
with that monarch to aid in liberating the
garrison of Southern Soudan, said that
England might as well ask the ruler of
Ashantee to give his aid as to apply to
the Abyssinian. King John may desire
to see tho Soudan tribes subjected, but
his power against the tribes will be
small. If this were large, the obtaining
of help now would mean the inauguration
of a long course of carnnge between
the Abyssinian Moslem tribes. liassim
suggests that if the Soudan is to be abau
cWuied it should lirst have been coniiier
ered and then parcelled out among the
chiefs, who would owe allegiance to the
