Marshal Jack Rose, of Mound City,
attempted to arrest a passenger on the trail
which left Mound City for Carmi about
5:30 o'clock; but the passenger refused to

The Memorial Day services at Mound
City yiBterday were more largely attended
' than they were in previous years, and there
were no such disgraceful scenes near the
ctmettrv as before. Refreshment stands
and carousals were confined to the city, and
those who visited the cemetery spent the
timo in wandering quietly about among
the graves and strewing flowers, or listen
ing to the oration. Hon. George Washing'
ton Smith delivered the oration of the day.
The Cairo city baud furnished the music
and the Ualliday Guards lent the scene a
sort of a military aspect.

attraction the berries or the flowers, but
valuable 'assistance was easily obtained
nd the berries carried off the honors. They
nestled among the green leaves that mr
rounded them, bright and blushing, like so
raany large red apples. It is needless to
say that they were sent by Mrs. J. Y
Clemson, as the description tells that they

man, formerly agent of the Illinois Central
Railroad, who now devotes his entire at

above Gretna, In conversation with some
railroad friends stated that he bad six acres
in cucumbers on his farm, sold to Chicago
parties at $1 per dozen, and expected to
get from 800 to 1,000 barrels from the six
acres. As there are fifty dozen cucumbers
in a barrel, the Colonel's Hales would
amount to fully $.rj0,000 on this vegetable
alone. He said he paid no attention what

all his sales to Western markets, where

Ia the circuit court yrstertlay Frunk
Irvin pleaded guilty to the crime of ma
hem, or, to be more explicit, to biting off a
man s ear. lie was sentenced by the court
to the penitentiary for five years. Patrick
Murphy, indicted with Jno. Kelly for the
robbery of a conductor on a Missouri rail
road some timo ago, pleaded guilty to the
charge and was given one year in thopeu
itentiary. In the case of the People vs
Jacob Bradly, States Attorney Leek entered
nolle pros., which was done because the
witnesses for the prosecution all "went
back on'' The People, and upon the advice
of the court. To-day the Runner case will
probably be taken up and as the court de
Bigned from the first to try only the cases
of th' se who were confined in jail, this will
probably be the last case this term.
About a week ago an inmate of the
Southern Illinois Insane Asylum at Anna
named Janes liradiey, made his escape
while employed with a party of about
twenty in clearing a piece of land neartl
asylum. Nothing was heard of him until
yesterday when he was recaptured in this
city by Messrs. Charles K. Iluuk and C. L
Otrich, of Anna, who were in the city to
attend the memorial ceremony at Mound
City. They found him leisurely walking
along one of the principal streets; and they
took him in charge and handed him ovc
to the city jailor for safekeeping until they
went home again last night. Bradley was
a convict and was sent from the penitenti
ary to the asylum. A special ward is in
course of construction at the asylum for
the convict insane, and after that shall have
been finishsd, there will probably not be
any more such cscaptB.

Deputies and proceeded to read the

to calmly and with the closest atten

Sheriff, immediately after reading the
warrant, and the negro was cjuickly
pinioned. At this juncture Iirowu's
wife began moaning and sobbing iu her

Those Mythical Firms and the Blind
Pittsui nun, Pa., May 30. An Intimate
friend of George W. Rowley, Individual
book-keeper of the Penn Bank, made for
him a statement to-day that the checks of
D. Wilson & Co., Hill & Co. and Watson
& Co., the mythical firms, were druwn
and signed by President Riddle, and that
the Jatter represented all these
lirms; the blind pool lost over four
million dollars iu oil, and that
the overdrafts on the bank aggre
gate 1 ,300,000. Kiddle, who at one time
possessed $400,000, lost all of it in oil.
The rumor that the Pennsylvania Pro
tective Association is seriously involved
by the failure Is denied. The association
had four thousand dollars deposited In the
bank when the doors were closed, bat no
claims have ever been rejected and they
will continue business. Notices have
been served on the directors for a meet
