For some weeks past small pox has
raged in nearly all the small towns on river

Tho truth of the matter Is that Juo. haB
simply verbally n quested several of his
friends to verbally recommend him to tht
powers that be. This may be properly
termed a distinction without much of a dif
ference. The work of raising and graveling
Ohio Levee street from Fourteenth down
was resumed yesterday and by evening,
when it was stopped by rain, Eighth Street
had been reached. Tho work is being well
done under the immediate directions of Mr.
Tom Meehan and under tho general super
vision ot the street committee. The lose
mud ib first carefully removed with scrapers,
shovels, etc. and the new gravel is spread
upon m solid surftoo. Tno gravel will be
Bpread ou in sevetal layer1, permitting the
first to bo thoroughly packed down before
another is spread.

A young man, named Tom Ryan, wis
arn-s ed Tuesday night tor patronizing in
stitutions ol evil, but tho charge was not
proven and he was discharged. His rial
offense was, however, that when the officers
wei.t to one of tho houses on Thirteenth
street to inform tho iumitos that they must
uo in future, be seen on the streets by day
or night, lie was there and objected to the
order very feelingly on behalf of "the
young ladies" present "shot off his mouth"
(to use a vulgar phrase) Very olFensively to
tho officers, who concluded that his g iliunt
impertiueuce merited some puniahiuent.

Celebrated at the residence of Mr. Harry

being per formed by Rector Davenport, of
the Episcopil church. After the ceremony
there was a confusion of pletsure manifest
ed and participated in by all. A splendid
supper was partaken of, and there was
music and dancing. Mr. and Mrs. Metzger
left early this morning on the Illinois Cen

will go to Washington and other places of
interest. Several weeks will lapse before
they return ami then they will take up their

Mr. George M. O.IIara, of the Carbon
bondale Criterion-Democrat, and Mr.
Cochran, General Passenger Agent of the
St. Louis Coal Ittilroad, were in the city
yesterday. They came down here to confer
with a committee of thu CViro Old Fe!-
bws Lodge, with a view to having an ex
cursion train run from Cairo to Murphys
boro on the 20th inst., ou the occasion of
the meeting of the Southern Illinois Anni
versary Association. They; met and con
ferred with Judge Robinson, Mr. II. C. Lot
lin and Alderman McII ile, a committee of
tho Cairo Lodge. The conference w as held
at Judie llibiuson's office, an 1 the conclu
sion arrived at whs that no excursion could
be had because no special triin c suld bo
obtained from either the Illinois Central or
the St. Louis & Cairo lUilrjad Companies.
It was purposed to chatter a triin of five
couches, take bauds of music, and tho Odd
Fellows would take their families and
make the meeting of the Association a
grand jubilee. But the scheme has fallen
through anl probably a compiritively few

But to my story. Whi n tho new
president, William II., tiit took hold
of atl'airs, he ran tip :m I down the road
very frequently to get the hang of tho
thing. Ho always lmnkcie I for fast
pulls. Tho engine riMn"d after him
self was usually aligned to his special
trains. She wouid iiiukc the distance
from Albany to Syracuse in three hours
or n few minutes" hotter. But once or
twice it so happened thru some other lo
comotive fell to the ta-k, and then it
was shown that the William. II. Vander
bilt was not so much of a runner any
way. Better time was made by No. 110
and by tho Major Priest. So the first
thing tho engineers knew was an order
to have all the engines r painted. 1
guess I knew of the determination of
the president .sooner than any one, for
he was a pretty mad man one day
when 1 took his special; we made tho
distance in time that laid his machine
in shade. So ono by one tho names of
Ernst u s Corning, Conrad Shoemaker,
H. Chittenden, J. Tillinghast, and tho
rest were obliterated, tho locomotives
coming out of the shoos painted that
peculiar brown called '"black crook"
At last even the name of William H.
Vanderbilt was daubed oil' by the paint
ers. It was the last to go. At tho
same time the brass work was also
painted over a godsend to tho fire
man who had to scour it, but a blow at
the pride of tho engineers. I don't be
lieve tho enthusiasm exists now among
railroad men which used to bind us to
gether in tho old days. Tho duplex
has not been tho only " innovation. In
those days you would never catch ono
conductor playing the spy on another.

AN Ali MY EXPERIENCE.
How an Old Veteran Escaped Anniliiln
lion and Lived to Impart a
Warning1 to Otheru.
f .s'utlonul Trilmuo of WashluRtou.)
A pleasing occurrence which has just
come to our notice in connection with the
New York state meeting of the Grand
army of tho Republic is bo unucual in
many respects that we venture to repro
duce it for the hem lit of our readers.
Captain Alfred Rensom, of New Yoik,
while p icing in the lobby of the armory,
previous to ouu of the meetings, suddenly
stopped and scanned the face of a gentle
man who was in earnest conversation with
one ol the Grand Army officers. It seem
ed to him that he had seen that face before
partially obscured by the smoke of battle,
and yet this bright aud pleasant counten
ance could ntt bo tho same pale, and iloat! -like
vhage, which he so dimly remembered.
But the recollection, like Bnquo's ghost,
would not "down" at command and haunt;
ed him the eutire day. On the day follow
ing he again saw tho Bamo countenance,
and ventured to speak to its owner. The
instant the two veterans heard each other's
voices, that instant they recognized aud
called each other by name. Their faces and
forms had ch urged, but their voices were
tho same. Tho man whom Captain Ren
som had recognized was Mr. W. K. Sage,
of St. Johns, Mich., a veteran ot the 23rd
N. Y, Light Artillery and both members of
Burnside's lamous expedition to No: th
Carolina. After the first greetings were
over, Captain Rensom said :
"It hardly seems possible, Sage, to see
you in this condition, for I thought you
must have been dead long ago."
"Yes, I do not doubt it, for if I am not
mistaken, when we lost met I was occupy
ing a couch in the hospital, a victim of
, Yellow Jack' in its worst form."
"I remember. The war seems to have
caused more misary since its close than
when it was iu progress," replied the Cap
tain. "I meet oil comrades frequently who
are suffering terribly, not bo much from old
wounds as from the malaria! poisons which
ruined theit constitutions."
"I think so myself. When the war closed
I relumed home and at times I would (eel
well, but every few weeks that confwuu le 1
'all-gone' feeling would coiuejupon me
again. My nervous system, which was
shuttered in the serv'ce, failed mo entirely
aud produced one of the worst po-siblo
cases of nervous dyspepsia. M tst of the
time,! had no appetite; then aain I would
become ravenously hungry, but the minute
I sat down to eat I loathed food. My skin
was dry and parched, my flesh loose and
flabby. I could hold nothing on my stomach
for clays at a time, and what little I did eat
faile 1 to assimilate. 1 was easily fatigued ;
my mind was depressed; I was cross aud ir
ritable ann mauy a night my heart would
pain me so I could not sleep, and when I
did I had horrid dreams and frightful night
mares. Of course, these thing3 came on
ono by one, each worse than tho other. My
breath was very foul, my tongue was coat
ed, my teeth decayed. I had terrific head
aches which would leave my nervous system
completely shattered. In fact my existence
since the war, has been a living death, from
which I have often prayed for release."
"Couldn't the old surgeon do you any
"I wrote him and he treated me, but like
every other doctor, failed. They all said
my nerve was gone and without that to
build upon I could not get well. When I
was at my worst, piles of the severest nature
came upon me. Then my liver gave out
and without the use of cathartics I could
not move my bowels at all. My blood got
like a stream of fire, and seemed literally to
burn rnc alive."
"Well you might better have died in
battle.iuick and without ceremony."
"How many times I have wished I had
died the day wo captured Newberne!"
"And yet you are now the picture of
"And the picture is taken from life. I
am in perfect condition. My nerve tone
is restored; my stomach reinvitrorated ; my
flesh is hard aud healthy; in fact I have
new blood, new energy and a new lease of
life wholly as the result of using Warner's
Tippecanoe. This remarkable preperation'
which I consider the finest tonic and
stomach restorer in the world I1113 overcome
all the evil influences of malaria, all the
poison of tho army, all traces of dyspepsia,
all mal-assimilation of food, and indeed
made a new man of mo."
The Captain rem lined silent for a while
evidently musing over his recollections of
the past. When ho again raised his head
"It would be a godsend if all the veter
ans who havo suffered so intensely and also
all others in the land who are enduring so
much misery could know of your experi
ence, Sage, and the way by which you have
