Some one has written to Mayor Halli-
day for information as to the probability of
btaining material aid from citizens here in
an oil cloth factory which he proposes to es
tablish here. He desires to organize a stock
company and wants our citizens to take
much the major portion of the stock, while
ha will furnish tbe experience and severnl
et ceteras. Such propositions are as thick
in the air as presidential booms in a poli
The popular impression that great cor
porations, like great minds, lose sight of
ittle thiugs, don't stoop to little meannesses
one of many popular eirors. That a big,
wealthy corporation, managed by men who
ought to have great minds a corporation
that has treated with much dignity and
disdain matters which, in tbe eyes of this
little community, seemed of considerable
mportance that such a corporation can
condescend to some very Liliputian roles
on occasions, is proven by the action of tbe
St. Lou s & Cairo Railroad Company in the
matter of the intended Odd Fellows excur
sion to Murphysboro on the 26th. About a
year ago the Odd Fellows went in a body
from here to Jonesboro or Anna, we be-
ieve, taking the Illinois Central train be-
a a I. a A
causa, at me time tne contract
foi rates was made, the St. Louis and Cair
road (was under Its annual watery ban.
But though it could not reasonably have
expected tbe Odd-fellows to do otherwise
under the circumstance, the corporation pf
foreign bond-holders was angered at what
it looked upm as a slight from the Cairo
Odd-fellows as mad as any sweet1 girl
singer who did not get a leading part in
concert. Tka bond-holders were jealous of
ths little Illinois Central, but the subjects
of their anger were the Cairo OJd-fellows.
They suppressed both these sentiments for
tbe time being and wnited patiently
for an opportunity to "get even." In the
mean time they lormed a combination with
the Illinois Central which mtde each, to a
certain extent, subject to tho will of the
other and the authority given them
by this compact enibkd the
St. Louis and Cairo mngnatcs to satisfy
their thirst for vengauce against the of
fending Oddfellows. The opportunity (r
exercising this authority dawned when the
lodge apjiliod for a special train to convey
themselves and friends to Murphyaboro on
the 26th. The implication wta answered
with a peremtory refusal on the ground
that the company could not spire the
coaches. The Odd-fellows committee then
applied to the Illinois Central, but their
request was there also refused not that
the company was not able and willing to
furnish the train, but because, by the com
pact mentioned above, it was bound to con
sult the St Louis and Cairo company in this
matter and this company firmly declined
to permit the I. C. to grant the Odd fel
lows' request. Unable or unwilling to fur
nish the special train itself, it refused to
permit the I. C. to furnish it for no other
evident reason than to punish the Odd-fellows
of Cairo for not taking the risk a year
ago of having to swim to Jonesboro via the
8t. L. & C, instead of chartering a train on
tbe I. C. If revenge is sweet, it Is pro
bable that the St. L. & C. managers are just
now sucking all their thumbs and fingers
after a grand feast of the very quintessence
of sacharine, while the Cairo Odd-fellows
may repent at leisure of their thoughtless
ness of a year ago.
The Ideal League scored another
triumph at the Opera House, list night, in
the production of "A Scrap of Paper.'' As
at tbe previous performance the house was
thronged with people an audience which
rivaled in numbers and character many that
had gathered there to witness even the
best professional companies. The piny
was produced in a very creditable mauner
generally. The stage presented several
new feature?, provided especially for the
occasion ; the company were all appropriate
ly and attractively costumed, and the per
formance was given gracefully, smoothly,
without any serious breaks which charac
terize amateur performances generally,
which torture the audience more, perhaps,
than those who c mmit them, and one or
two of which spoil a whole play. The au
dience in this case was a critical one and
did not permit friendship for the individual
actors or actresses to burst forth in applause
and other signs of approval, when the per
formers did not deserve it because of their
artistic merit. Such applause as was given
could not have come from men and wom
en who desired to please, but from men
and women who were pleased and whose
pleasure bursted the bounds of conven
tionality and manifested itself in a manner
that could not be mistaken. Beautiful
boquets of flowers were sent to some of the
performers by their admiring friends,
as testimonials of appreciation, at
various stage of the performance. Prof.
Storer's Orchestra furnished the music.
While the company mukesno pretentions of
even'avtrage professionals and should there
fore be exempt from the ciitical analysis
to which the latter are usually subjected,
they will bear such analysis much better
than many professional companies that have
been here during this season and former
seasons. The put of "Suzanne de Ruse
ville" seemed to have been created express
ly for Miss Maud Rittenhouse, so perfectly
it fitted her, and so easily and naturally she
assumed it; she did not 'play it she was
"Suzanne," during the drama, with her
bright witty retorts and perfect air of nai
vete. Miss Alice Henderson was all that the
part of "Mathilda" required her to be iu
a word, charming, while as "Mile Zinobie,"
Miss Phyllis Howard displayed her talent
as an actress, by so creditably assuming
a part so utterly foreign to ber
natural style; however, she amused the au
dience by her ridiculous prudisbnees and
crustiness, and her watchful care of "Ana
tole". Miss Kate Howard was especially
charming as the "Baroness do la Glaciere,"
and showed remarkable ability for an ama
tenr; her costumes were rich and becoming
and she wore them with a womanly digni
ty that commanded instinctive respect. Miss
Mattio Alden as "Madame Dupout," and
Miss Anna Robertson as "Pauline," inter
preted their parts very acceptably. There
could not have been 8 better "Sir
Prosper" than that of Mr. Geo. Parsons, for
besides having his part well learned, he in
fused into it his natural humor, and all the
fire of bis nervous temperament; while Dr
Benson wasjust what the "Bar.)n" should
be s perfect iceberg; the frigidity of bis
tones almost made one shiver. Our friend,
Mr. Will Korsmeyer, played the part of
"Brisemouche" with easy, careless grace,
and despite the apprehensions ot "Zcnobie,"
never said anything awfully shocking. In
the part of "Anatole," Mr. E. M. Ilough, of
Chicago, acquitted himself very creditably,
and deserves especiil mention, as it is t! e
first time he has taken 'part in the theatri
cal of this city. It is to be hoped it will not
be the last. Mr. Harry Hughes as "Baptiste"
is no less desorving of praise; he did parti
cularly well in "that sneeza," which always
'brought down the house." Jllr. Ed Pinlt,
as "Francoise," also proved himself con
aiderable of an artist. While the Ideal
League has long been recognized as prob
ably the only permanent social organiza
tion in the city and may, not altogether
without reason, lay claim to being the lead
ing society of tho kind in the city, it will
now doubtless bo accorded the distinction
also of being a dramatic company of no
little merit. But above all, and what will
overshadow all its other good qualities, is
that, while its efforts aim at refined social
amusement and mental culture generally,
the incidental feature of its commendable
work is chanty, and for this one it would
deserve the good will ef the community,
Testimonals of Friendship.

A Living Tomb.
Richard Swan, a ruining speculator
of Leadvillc, Col., was rescued from a
horrible fate on Wednesday, being
found in tho bottom of a deserted mine
shaft, into which he had fallen six days
ago, and which has since been his liv
ing tomb. His rescue was by tho mer
est nccident. James Burry and Charles
A Dean, two miners, while on their way
to work heard the groans of some one
in distress. For some time they were
unable to locate the sounds, buUfinally
found the opening of a shaft which had
almost been closed by the snow and ice.
They could then more plainly hear the
distant cries, and knew that the person
who uttered them must be lying at
the bottom. How deep the shaft was
they could not toll, for the depths were
black as midnight. Ropes and mining
timber were procured and Barry was
let down tho shaft. On reaching the
bottom and striking a match, he found
a man lying face downward just in the
entrance of a drift leading from the
shaft. The man was unconscious, and
his faco unmistakably depicted tho
agonies of death by starvation. The
unfortunate man was raised to the sur
face and carried to the city, where, af
ter restoratives had been applied, ho
Ho says that six days ago ho was
walking up the gulch to look at some
mining property, when all of a sudden
ho was precipitated down tho deserted
6haft spoken of. He was not aware of
its presence, as tho mouth was com
pletely blocked with snow. From tho
fall he suffered a sprained ankle and a
bruised arm, but was not otherwise
hurt, as he struck upon his feet. All
that night ho made attempts to climb
out of the shaft, and only ceased his ef
forts when his strength had completely
given out. His suU'urings were terrible.
As near as ho can tell, for three days
and nights ho kept up tho endeavor to
escape- from his tomb. Frequently he
says he heard men passing by, but he
called to them in vain. Finally the
hunger and tho exposure mado him so
weak that ho could not stand up, and
giving up. in despair ho lay down on.
tlio spot where he was found. He must
have lost consciousness soon after, for
ho says ho knew nothing more till ho
awok'o in the cabin where he was takeu
after beinfir rescued.
