There was a revival of police business
yesterday, which it is to be hoped will not
contiue very long, unless it is true as claim
ed (not entirely without reason) that life in
police circles is a sure indication of life in
other circles of greater benefit to a ccui-
munity. Mat Naughty was fined $100 and
costs for vagrancy; Filmore Grigly, $23
and costs for carrying concealed weapons;
and Anna Littell, Pricilla Anderson and
Nathan Parker, each $3 and co.-ts for gen-
Henry Smith, a white mnn picked a
pistol up belonging to Constable Martin,
where the latter had accident illy left it
Friday, aud went to Mr. Farnbaker, pawn
broker, and pawned it for t", claiming
that the wcapan was his own. The officer
missed his weapon soon after, and it didn't
take him long to find it and also the man
who took it. Yesterday Smith was held to
bail by Magistrate Comings, in the sum of
$ 100, to answer the charge of larceny at the
next term of the Circuit Court. In default
of bail Smith went to the county jail.
The bank clearings continue totellthe ac
customed story, illustrating the special seats
of maximum business depression. This np
pears to be peculiarly marked in the East.
In New York last week there was a de
crease iu clearings, compared with the cor
responding week of last year, of 20.9 per
cent., and in Boston a decrease of 8.1 per
cent. Chicago, St. Louis, Louisville, Mil
waukee and San Francisco show an increase,
the gain atLouisville being larger than in
any other of these cities 20 per cent. Cin
cinnati reports a decrease of 14.8 per cent.,
which is the greatest in the West.
Mr. Frank Kratky will leave to-morrow
morning early for Kansas City, Mo.,
on a trip of pleasure and inspection. He
will remain some days in the city named,
looking around, and then he will go to
Dakota, stopping at or near the city of
Bellfield, where he has considerable real
estate, consisting of several lots in tho city
and about three acres of fine farming land
near by. He goes with the purpose of see-
ng what prospects the country offers for a
business of some kind, and if he finds
things satisfactory, he will probably em
bark. He will be gone several weeks, at
least, perhaps several months.
Mr. J. 11. Mulcahey returned yesterday
from Hot Springs, where ho had gone to
adjust the trouble iu his affairs caused by
the recent fire. He found the damage to
be less than had been reported here. Con
siderable of his stock had been saved from
the flames; but he got six thousand dollars
of the insurance. lie has leased the
ground upon which the house stood, for a
term of ten years, and has perfected ar
rangements to begin the erection of a frame
building two stories high, forty feet wide
and ninety feet deep. He still has confid
ence in Hot Springs as a good business
place, in spite of the various disturbances
that have occurred there of late. Mr. Thos.
Whitlock is still there looking after Mr
Mulcahey 's interests.
The Alexander County Democratic
Central Committee met yesterday afternoon
at the office of Mr. M. J. Ilowlcy to select
the time fur holding the County Democratic
Convention which is to select delegates to
the Stato, Congressional, Senatorial and
Judicial Conventions of tho party and
select a new County Central Committee.
Chairman Shields presided and Mr. Howley
acted as secretary in tho absence of Secre
tary Blake. Tho committee decided, in
stead of a mass convention as heretofore,
primaries should be held in all the pre
cincts in the county, in the Cairo precincts
on Friday evouing, May 10th, and the coun
ty precincts on Saturday afternoon, May
17th. Tho convention is to bo hold at the
court-house in this city on May 19th, at 2
o'clock p. m. Tho official call of the com
mittee appears elsewhere in this issue. A
blank is left in the call for tho dato and
pluco of tho Senatorial Convention which
has not yet been called.
Miss Mamie Smith, who deputed this
life on Wednesday evening at seven
o'clock, was the daughter of Mrs. Marga
ret Smith, and beloved neice of Mr. Daniel
Hartman, of this city. Mamie was bom in
Cumberland, Md., September 20th, 1800.
ner father died the following year or so;
the widow then removed with her little
family to Cairo, Mamie being but t ighteeu
months old. She has since grown up among
us, and was well known as an amiable und
sweet girl. Last spring ahc was quite ill
for some timo with malarial fuvi r, but ap
parently recovered her usual health. In
September, bhe went to Cape Girardeau to
attend- St. Viuceut's Academy, she was
progressing rapidly with hur tttudies and
won the ufleetions of the Sisters and pupila.
lhr family wire looking forward to her re
turn home in Juue, and to a bright future;
their hopes seemed to be centered on this
idol of their affections, but "umu proposes,
but God disposes," and the star gem in thu
family casket has been culled jway, only
to be re-set in our Heavenly Father's King
dom. A short time ago Manii Vas taken very
ill at school with Typho-Malarial lever;
two weeks ago, her mother brought her
home, and since then she has been gradual
ly sinking until she fell asleep in Jesus.
A few days previous to her duth, she' re
quested Rev. Mr. Scarritt, of the Methodist
Church to sing aud pray with her. The
last night of her stay on earth was spent in
prayer and praise, she requesting a friend
to tell her of Jesus, alo to sing "Nearer
My God to Thee." When the 14th chapter
of John was repeated to her, she clasped
her hands, murmuring "A Mansion for
Me." Her entire illness was characterized
by a sweet, patient spirit, and that beauti
ful smile of hers! Shall we ever forget itf
The funeral services were held in
the Methodist Church, Kev. Mr.
Scarrnt delivered a very im
pressive and touching sermon from John,
XI chap., 28th verse, "The Master is come,
and calleth for thee." His remarks were
listened to with close attention; there wb
not one in the house who was not visibly
affected. The church was crowded to over
flowing with firiends, great nnny being the
young companions of the deceased, who
came to pay the last tribute of affliction to
our beloved Mamie.
Her room mate arrived iu time for the
services, bringing with her a floral tribute
of love from the pupils of St. Vincent's
The casket with its precious burden,
covered with floral emblems of esteem, was
borne to Beech Grove Cemetery, and laid
in its last resting place, to wait with our
loved ones, for the resurrection morn.
But I know, that darling hope wi re hid,
Beneath that cruel colli n lid.
"Beautiful sleeper, in vain we have called thee.
Again and strain, to waken once more,
Then angels have borne thee 'over the river'
Besntlfnl sleeper! tnv life work Is o'er.
A daughter so pore, so gentle, and lovely,
Ah! how thy mother will miss thee each day,
Thy brother Mill grieve; ob! faith beyond doubt
ing They know that angels have borne thee away.
Thy sister will listen percbanre forgetting
"Will listen thy musical tones to bear,
Will feel thy soft fingers ber band careening,
Dreaming the form of her lov'd one Is near;
And dreaming aUs, will 'waken to adness.
And dreaming perchance, may 'waken to weep,
For ber darling whose life-thread soon was brokan
The slater who lies In a dreamless sleep.
