Monday Alderman Win. Mcll tle, act
ing under orders from Col. Taylor, will set
a gang of probably (ilty men and twenty
teams to work on the old Mississippi Levee,
not so much to repair damages done by the

done) as to raise tho leveo and make it
stronger than it was before.
The funeral of tho bit; Miss Mamie

A bout ten teani9 and tho necessary
number of men were put to work on tho

The man who was employed by Chief
Myers Thursday to bury a dead mule that
had floted a-:hore near the Mississippi
Levee, dug a hole twelve feet long, six feet
wide and four feet deep, right in tho slope
of the levee only six or eight feet from the
top, threw tho remains into it and (overed
them up. Col. Taylor learned of this yes
terday and took legal steps to have the
circas remove 1, and the damage to the
levee repaired. The demand was promptly
complied with. The Chief hail the care is
lisinterrod and burned, and the slope of
the levee res'ored. All of wh'ch is well.

One person went forward for prayers, ode

Hogs are said to have made some very
serious attacks upon the old Mississippi
levee in various places. We have it from
Alderman McIIile that dozens of them
have been at work at as many different
places, rooting industriously Bnd with an
eflVct th it might prove dangerous in ajflood,
in the outer slope of the levee or at the
base. IIo lias caught tbtra hard at work in
cavities out of which only their tails pro
truded, and they had actually dug away
some of the rock revetment and penetrated
tho ground to the dopth of several feet un
der this in pursuit of their favorite food,

against these ravagers and the sooner the
Although this judicisl district is De
mocratic by a majority of about ten thou
sand, yet the Itepublicans, unterrifled, have
nominated can lidates for both appellate
and supreme court clerkships. They dis
pensed with the formality of a convention:
the delegates from Southern Illinois to tho
state convention met and nominated Mr.
Charles Becker, of St. Clair county, as can
didate for the appellate clerkship, and Mr.
W. J. Held, of Bond county, for the supreme
court clerkship. Both gentlemen will now
go through the forms of a campaign with
out even the sludow of a chance for suc
cess. But then, having been so outrageous
ly snubbed by the state convention, South
ern Illinois Republicans will probably be
in a tit state of mind to appreciate this poor
boon for all it is worth.
The wheat is reported as looking better
since the late rain11, while oats arc coming-
tip nicely, and promise a g o 1 return to the
husbandman. Some com ha9 already been
planted, and that planted earliest is show
ing itself above ground and looks prorai
ing. The bad weather of the last few dajP
has greatly retarded the preparation of co'n
ground, but with a favorable season, thre
is yet plenty of time for getting this cvp
planted. Meadows and pastures are hik
ing well where the ground is well draiied,
or a little rolling: and although the prom
ise of an average wheat crop in this cotnty
is rather discouraging, there is yet fair fros-
pects for our farmers if the spring ffops
yield a good return. It is too early yrt to
tell mueh about the fruit crop, thoughit is
more than probable that we shall ha an
abundance of apples, a fine crop of araw
berries, some pears, and a fair crop of Wild
G,i"se plums. j
Comtnen'it'g upon the approaiting
nomination of a Congressman by the dem
ocrats of this district, tho Chester Troune
say, With a Republican majority offrom
800 to 1,200 in the district, there f not
much hope for a Democrat, and it'only
now and then you find a man that it anx
ious to bo slaughtered." The Tribjne is
drawing upon an imaginary accountfor its
majority in this district. If we rcntmber
right the Republican majority at Me last
election was not over 300. Probafljr the
Tribune will answer that the districts Re
publican by the majority claimed; tM, but
for the disaffect'unis in tho party n 1832
the majority would have been at len(t three
times as largo as it was, and that, t these
disaffection; do not exist now, (he full
strength of tlie party will be brought out.
But does it not Btriko the Tribune that, in
thus reasoning, it is attaching enlrely too
much importance to tho disaffections in the
party in 1882 ? particularly in view of the
fact that several of the counties in which
disaffection was believed to be strongest
gavo larger R.-publican majorities than
they did when all was believed to be
harmony? No, sir. The Republican party
of this district was not any stronger in 1882
than its majority indicted, and there is
good reason to believe that it is weaker to
day than it was then.
Mr. Joseph Steagala has returned to
Cairo to stay. He is tired of Hot Springs,
The recent serious disturbances t' ere have
paraljzed busin 'ss of every kind and un
exampled dullness is expected to reign
there for a considerable time. Mr. S. ex
pects to sell nut his business there very
soon and will again devote himself entirely
to his interests here. IK- is the first of sev
eral who have left Cairo within the last year
or so to return to his first love." It is tho
old story. We are never satisfied with
what we have and it is only after having
tasted that for which we so ardently wished
and been sorely disappointed, that we learn
to appreciate what wo had before. While
Cairo may be less attractive than other
cities, she is, in other, more important ro
spcts, the equal of most other cities of her
size, and superior of tnauy. Put it will
probably take bitter experience tc satisfy
many ot our chronic malcontents of this
fact of whom, by the way, Mr. Steagala
w is not one.
Only three or four members of the
Cairo lodge of OddjFellows will be in attend
ance upon tho anniversnry celebration at
Murphysboro to day. These paid the reg
ular fare which amounted to probably a
little over ten dollars in all, whereas, but
for tin combination between the two rail
road companies leading to Murphysboro,
either one or tho other of them could havo
gotten two hundred and fifty dollars for a
sp"cial train. It was expected, no doubt,
that the Odd Fellow, seeing that they could
not get a special train, w ml 1 go anyhow,
and pay regular rates. But no; the Odd
Fellows r-'fused to be caught in the trap
and ari cheerfully remaining at home. Hero
then, is oae case at least in which a "pool"
played the devil with the business of the
roads that were included in it; and it is only
another of many illustrations of how little
act of meanness intended to inflict puuish-
ment for a wrong, fancied or real, only to
satisfy a thirst for vengeance, may suddenly
become a boomerang and reiurn to strike
those from whom it came. There is a mor
al in all this, and it lies so near the surface
that it needs not be stated to those whom it
Mrs. Geek was found dead in her house
at the corner of Fourttenth and Walnut
streets, last night about 9:30 o'clock. She
was found by her son, seated in a rocking
chair, quite dead. The son give the alarm
and officer McTigue, who was near by,
called Dr. Gordon who hastened to tho
scene, but found that be could render no
service in the case.
A cut over the dead woman's lett eye,
and slight bruises under the eye and on the
chin, lirit attracted attention. One of the
pockets of her dress was turned inside out
and nickle was found lying on the floor Dear
her. A wash bowl of water discolored by
blood, was standing on a table near by, and
beside it lay a hand looking glass. At the
suggestion of the officer the bod, William,
looked about the house to see if there had
been robbery, but nothing was missed. But
the search resulted in the finding of Mrs.
Geek's pocket-book in a closet in the room
where she sat. Tho p icket-book was blood
stained and contained two five-dollar bills.
The first impression was that she had
been foully dealt with, but the circumstan
ces and inquiry among the neighbors seems
to dissipate this opinion. She
and her son, a young man
about twenty-one years old, were tho
sole occupants of the corner houso. Her
son had left her alone shortly after supper,
and she had told him that she woiildgoout
in town. It seems that she started to go
out, for a colored man says that be saw her
come forth from the house and suddenly
fall forward upon her face, striking her
head against the edge of the sidewalk. She
arose almost immediately, however, and
went slowly up stairs, holding one hand to
her forehead. The circumstances in the
room seem to indicate that she bathed her
wounded face in the wash-bowl, by the aid
of the liioking-glas, but becoming faint,
sat down and expired. It is not at all
probible that the wounds she received
caused liar death, for tbey are all too slight.
The largest, that over the eye, was but skin
deep and hardly an inch long, the others
were only suiface braises. Dr. Gordon was
puzzled to account for the fatal result un
der all the circumstances.
Deceased was probably over fifty years
old. She was an old resident here and bad
lived for many years in the house mention
ed which she owned with several others
adjacent. She leaves two grown sons.
