The poem, "A Wild Ti let in Novem
ber," appearing in the Current of March 1,
will be particularly erj iyed. The author,
Robert Auros Wilson, of Frankfort, Ky.,
has something more than a local reputation
as an artist, and his poem will assuredly
prove gratifying reve!a'i n to the lit'-rary
world. Its remarkable perception, tender
grace of style, singular metapeoric power,
ar'Wtic development of though along the
appronc'ies to the grand climax, vivid port
rayal, in simple phrase?, of coutrabting
scenes in nature all blend in a pure, noble
an-1 ex ilting purpose. The poem bos in it
the true fire, anc some of the lines ire ul
m st Homeric in their strength.
Cairo has for some time served as a
port of entry for Paducuh. Steamers have
for ten da) s past been prevented from, land
ing at Paducah ou the plea that by so doing
they would create a disturb ince in the
water which would do damage to property
-a not very rational plea, it seems to us,
for boats could land almost without causing
a ripple in the water. As a consequence
they had to keep all the freight they had
for Paducah and leave it here when they
came down. There is nw a large quantity
of freight stored on the wharf boats here,
intended for Paductih parties and awaiting
reshipment to Paducth when tho Fow
lar shall resumo her rcguhr trips.
A VilU Ri Ige correspon lent of the
Anna Farmer and Fruit Grower demands

court had to adjourn on account of high
water. But Mound City will be all righ
after this fluod. Bha has several very enter
i prising public spirited citizens who will sue
tha, like Ciiro, she will, "in tim'j of
peace, pr pare for war. She will be ma le
entirely secure in time lor the next flood
and not causo any more apprehension of
uang r among the people within her earthen
walls, even though the water shall rise as
high as it has bo n. But to say that the
obj. ction to her as a county seat is, that
people from the county can not reuch her
during flood time,, to attend court, would
only be to furnish so argument that could
be urged with eq lal forco against most any
other point iu the count', for when the
river is as high as it was ten days ago, it
will surround many a firm premises and
cut off many a road and thus prevent travel
There is considerable talk theso diys
of changing the gauge of all the southern
railwaj s from their standard of five feet to
the northern standard of four feet eight
and one-htlf inches. This would involve a
great expense, an enormous one in the
aSSrfgte od one which it seems the
ingenuity of this country should be able to
obviate. The present plan of changing
trucks which was done here before the
Illinois Central changed the gauge of the
southeru division and which is still being
done in miking connections between the
Illinois Central and Texas and St. Louis,
accomplishes the obj.c but at too great a
loss of time. Here's an opportunity for a
handsome fortune to same enterprising in
The theory that the large quantity of
accumulated water in the low places of the
city in former years wasdue very much to
imperfect closing of the sewers, promises to
be erploded and sent in fragments to the
marines. Thoso who feared that Cairo
would this year hve to deny herself the
pleasurable sensation of a uipowater bath,
and anticipated a consequent boom'.et for
the doctor.'', will be very agreeably disap
pointed; for it is probibla th at by time fie
river shall have stood above frty-t.vo feet
as lng as it did in former years we slnll
have all the water we wunt to give the city
a good scouring out when the sewers are
opened and that, too, with every artificial
connection with the nvera closed as tight

The Anna Farmer aud Fiuit Grower
gives the Illinois Central railroad company
managers the following well deserved cem
pliment: "The Illinois Central railroad,
for several weeks past, has been the only
railroad between Pittsburg and New Or
leans which was not entirely disabled by
the high water. It has run its regular (and
many extra) trains right alung. This is
quite a triumph for this old reliable road,
which is ev:ry day improving in its busi
ness, both p:ssenger aud freight, and be
coming m re and more popular with the
masses. All this is in a great mexsure p ue
to the efEcic. t minsgeraent of President
Clark, Traffic Manager Tucker, Superin
tendent Jeff.ev?, Gecenl Passenger Ajeut

Up to Ust evening only two or thre
pople bid been turn'shed with rations
from the lot left hero by tde CMdwell
Taey were from the bottoms in Een'ucky
and had by the nieerest clnnce learned thi.t
there were any ritious within fifty miles of
them. Those two or three people were
furnished with about three hundred rations
in all, leaving four thousand seven hundred
still on lund assuming, of course, that the
original number left here was five thousand.
These rations, it should be understood,
were left here for those in need of theui in
the Kentucky and Missouri bottoms, and
not for any one here, an 1 therefore not in
the hands of the local au'horities who re
fused to receive them. But it seems now
that they are destined to waste their frag
rance in obscurity, unless someffort be
made t discover those for whom they are
THE ILLINOIS CENTRAL'S REPORT.
The advance sheets of the Illinois Cen
tral's report have been iaucd. These show
that, after the parent of f G32.429 for per
manent improvements, and a half yearly
dividend in September last, sufficient of the
profits had been set . side for the payment
of an ordinary dividend uf 4 per cent, and
an extra dividend ef 2 per cent, on M irch
1, and there would remain a bal-ince from
the cross earnings of $150,909. Since Jan
uary 1, 188U, the company ti l9 operated

The grass sum received from the traffic
of the entire line was $13,0 04,743, against
$12,001,708 in 1882; increase, $103,033.
Net earningB were $0,204,1.10, agninst $5,
255.030 in 1882; increase, $'J,120. Now,
gross earnings of Illinois Central proper in
1882 were $8,095,312; increase, $318,914;
the net earnings, $3,000,709, against $3,-'
227,181, an increase of $433,587. It WttUi,i
seem from this that the operating expanses
of the Southern Division not yet published
will alone explain why the proportions of
increase of gross and net earnings, an 1 es
pecially of tho latter, were not maintained.
The results of 1883 are shown as follows
Net receipts from traffic, $5,204,157; net
receipts from land, $147,430; net receipts
from interest on investments, premiums on
bonds sold, etc $352,805; total, 5,704 392,

What Delegate Eaymond, a Quiet, Modest
Young Man, Knows About Fann
ing in the Northwest.
Migratory Farm Hands and Log Rollers
Who Follow the Flight of
Washington, D. C, Feb. 28. A very
large majority of the men composing tho
upper and lower houses of Congress are
lawyers. Next to these perhaps In num
bers are manufacturers, and farmers, of
the latter class probably no Congress has
had one who conducts his enterprise on
so large a scale as one of the farmers In
the present House. Deleuute Raymond
of Dakota, a very quiet, modest-looking
young man of less than forty, Is one of
the largest farmers of that largo fanning
section of the Northwest. His homo is
in Northern Dakota and His farm 35,000
acres. On between 8,000 and 10,000 acres
uf this he raises wheat, whilo the re
maiii'ler he reserves for pasturage for
his l.ooo or more head of cuttle. To hear
of his methods of funning reminds one
uf Florence's stories in his new play of
"Facts," and one almost unconsciously
hums "Over the Garden Wall" when he
hears of wheat fields measured by thous
ands of acres and yieldiug hundreds of
thousands of bushels. On the other hand,
one is more ready to believe them when
he looks upon Delegate Raymond's frank
countenance and sees the elegant style in
which he lives here In Washington. His
home is one of the handsomest of the
many handsome residences in this city,
overlooking Iowa Circle, and elegantly
furnished and tasteful In all Its surround
ings. "Are there many such farms as yours
in Dakota?" your correspondent asked of
Mr. Raymond, as he sat in his office on
Iowa Circle, talking of his Dakota home.
"Nut many," he answered. "Of course
there are some much larger; the Dalrym
ple system of farming, for Instance, iu
cludini: L'5,000 acres; then there are one
or two farms of 8,000 and 10,000 acres,
and one near mine of 0,000 acres; but they
are not numerous. There are a cood
manv farms of 1,000 and 1,200 acres, but
even these are a very small fraction of the
number of farms in Dakota, lhe lame
proportion of the farms there are small,
quarter-sections and half-sections, for In
stance." "How do you conduct operations on
such immense farms as this of yours? In
the same manner as on small farms?"
"U'ell,"fhe said, "I keep ten orja dozen
iiK-n at this time uf tho year on the farm
taking care of the stock; in the spring,
when the seeding time begins, 1 here
thirty or forty, and put them to work put
tins in the wheat. After this Is done I
discharge most of them until harvest time,
except a few whom I employ for having a
little earlier. When harvest time comes
I employ perhaps seventy-five men. I put
elf-liindiiig reapers Into the held, and all
that the men have to do Is to trather up
the sheaves and set them up Into shocks.
That used to be bovs' work a few years
o. The men that we hire for this
work are professional harvesters. They
sjin harvesting in lennessee and work
north as the season advances, and reach
us dunns the end of the summer, when
our harvesting begins. After the harvest
ends they plunge Into the woods and
spend their winter logging. In the spring
they send their logs down the river, and
tramp back to Tennessee and begin their
harvest again to the north. Our harvest
over, we begin threshing at once, taking
the wheat Immediately from the shock to
the steam thresher. We begin with one
threshing-machine on the farm, set a
second at work on the second day and
another or the third day, and run along
through the season with three machines
until we finish our 35,000 acres. The
wheat Is shipped by rail to Duluth,
thence around by lake to Buffalo, where
It is ground into flour."
"How far are you from the Northern
line of Dakota, Mr. Raymond; from Man
itoba?" "About 150 miles. We are In the same
lied River Valley and have the same sort
of country; perhaps a little better in some
respects, but not quite as cold."
"Aro these published reports ot dissat
isfaction among the people of Manitoba
"Yes," he answered, "they are largely
true, and the Indications at present lead
to the belief that Manitoba will some day
be asking admission into the United
OVEK II IS JKA1 WIFE.
Joe Beach Blows out His Worthless
Sr. 1'ai i., Minn., Feb. 28. Joe Beach,
a fanner in Winona County, this State,
and wife quarreled a great deal and finally
separated. In June last she bore
him a child which both wanted.
The court honored the claim of the
mother, and the child was given Into her
charges. She took the child and fled to
the house of her sister, Mrs. Clow,
whither she was followed by the whole
clan of Beaches of the male persuasion.
A combat ensued, and Joe was roughly
handled, but got the bubo and went to
Canada with it. Ou November 16 last
Mrs. Beach, in Toronto, obtain
ed a writ of habeas corpus,
commanding her husband, then
living in Urockvillc, to produce the child
In court. She recovered possession of
the child and brought it back to Minne
sota. Beach came back, and the family
quarrel was renewed. Beach has been
very troublesome, and, smarting under
his defeat, swore vengeance, but no at
tention was paid to his threat. Ho
went to the house of his former wife
and demanded the child. The de
mand was refused and he killed his
wife, shooting her through the bruin.
Then approaching the quivering remains
of the dead woman he drew them out
Into the middle of .the floor, laid himself
do wn beside them and taking the still smok
ing pistol he placed it against his ear, fired
and expired almost Instantly by her side.
Reach was about sixty years of age; the

the twenty-tlrst day of that month, being
conllned to his house by Illness, he
sent a messenger on 'Change to buy for
him two car-loads of barley. This bar
ley was purchased of A. Nelter, a com
mission merchant, who had bought seven
car-loads of grain from the firm of N. K.
Flatt & Co., to be delivered In this city on
the tracks of the Chicago 4 Northwestern
Railway Company. He says, further,
that Nelter paid Piatt & Co., for only
two car-loads of barley, and then
failed in business. Matt & Co., the bill
charges, made strong efforts to collect
their pay for the seven car-loads from
Nelter, but, finding that their efforts
would be fruitless, they entered Into a
conspiracy with George Ii. Johnson, a
salesman in their employ, to saddle the
debt upon (ireiner. He repudiated the
allegation of the purcliase, aud 1'latt &
Co. thereupon made charges to the Di
rectors of the Hoard of Trade that Orelner
had refused to pay for five car-loads of
barley sold to Llm In 1882. Grelner
was not i lied of the matter and re
quested to come before the Directors for
a hearing of his case. Being sick at the
time set fur tho hearing he sent a lawyer,
but the legal luminary was refused admis
sion to the directors' room. The case
was therefore heard, Grenier says, with
out his being represented. He was noti
fied that unless he paid the claim of Piatt
& Co. by three o'clock Tuesday afternoon
he would be expelled from the board.
Judge Moran decided to enjoin any such
proceeding until a proper hearing of the
case could be had In court.
