The river is doing considerable dam
age again at Bird's Point and threatening
to do serious damage to the railroad prop
erty there. The Texas & St. Louis railroad
incline is rendered useless and is threatened
with total wreck in spito of Capt. Hiram
Hill's efforts to counteract the action of the
water and repair the damage already done.
Passengers on th's road are compelled to
chango cars at the Point before they can
continue their trip either way. Tho other
incline is also threatened, but not seriously.
The negro, Juo. Williams, who stolo
the chickens from Mr. A. J. Carle some
days ago, pleaded guilty in the circuit
court yesterday and was given one year iu
the penitentiary. The case of Jno. A.
Ziegler was then taken up. Ziegler is the
man who is accused of having stolen ai
watch chain from Mr. E. A. Buder, while
pretending" to select a lot of goods to buy.
He also selected goods at the Novelty Iron
store and at Messrs. Barclay Bros.' Ohio
leveo store. The case was on trial when
court adjourned hst evening. There will
be probably twelve or fifteen criminal cases
tried at this term of the court.
Capt. Thomas also had a good audi
ence at Mound City yesterday it was a
better audience than lus Cairo audience
the night before, in respect to quality, but
not so large. He made substantially the
same speech he had made here, with all
its gross mistatements of fact. He bragged
again of a letter which he claimed to have
received from D. T. Linegar, which the
latter,'entleman never wrote and which the
Capt. does not and can not produce. He
claimed all the credit for work done, which
would never havo been thought of or done,
but for the efforts of men other than Mr.
Thomas work which left to Capt. Thomas
alone would never have been proposed
much less accomplished. The Capt. thinks
he is playing a very smart trick, but he
will not have the last laugh. Wait and see.
Warren Wiins and Jno. Sides were on
trial in the circuit court yesterday, on the
charge of perjury. Some time ago when a
burglar named Stevens was on trial for
breaking into the house of a Mrs. Baker,
up town, the defendants testified that Mrs.
Baker was in the habit of living with ne
groes, and that the burglar, Stevens, was
in her house by her permission. It trans
pires that the defendants were mistaken in
the woman when they testified as they did
and they admit that they were. The evi
dence taken yesterday proved co nclusively
that Mrs. Baker was not guilty of the
charge, but it was not possible to prove
that trie defendants had sworn as charged,
hence the case was dismissed. Judge Yo
cum appeared for the prosecution and
McBArs. Mulkey and Leek for defendants.
A representative of The Bulletin on
Monday visited Clinton, Ky., a thriving
little city of about 1,200 inhabitants. It
being first day ot circuit court, he had the
pleasure of hearing a joint discussion be
tween Hon. Oscar Turner, present con
gressman, and Capt. Win, Stone, of Lyon
county --both aspirants for congress from
the First congressional district of Kentuc
ky. He reports an able talk from each
He also made the acquaintance of Mr. E.
E. Bowers, a polite and courteous gentle
man, whom he succeeded in getting to act
as agent for The Daily Bulletin there.
Mr. B iwcrs can always be found at the
post office, ready and anxious to supply
all with our paper, which contains the tel
egraphic news twelve hoirs ahead of all
other morning dailies that reach this city.
The N. Y. World says: "A Connec
ticut admirer of Ben Butler, writing to
the Sun, speaks of his hero as "Honest Old
Ben." ThiB might be considered a piece
of humor were it not that the writer im
parts an air of sincerity to his eulogistic
contribution. To speak of the man as hon
est who pillaged New Orleans, who traded
in countraband goods Juringjthe war, who
voted for tho salary grab, who fought in
Congress for the Union Pacific railway
steal, who defended Oakes Ames, who is
tho advocate ot monopolies and the friend
of every known fraud, is the height of
irony. Butler is honest in that he does not
attempt to hide his knavery with hypocrisy
andcaut. He is as bold and unblushing
as a second Robin Hood, but he differs
from that predatory citizen in that he does
not divide with the poor the proceeds of
his vigorous forays against commercial so
ciety." At a meeting of the Arab fire compa
ny Monday night it was decided to dis
charge the engineer the company had em
ployed to keep the steamer in repair and
to abandon the steamer fer the present.
Tho company tad paid the engineer f 75
per annum, which was a heavy drain upon
its allowance from the city. The main
tainance of the steamer put the company to
an extraordinary expenditure, an expendi
ture that the other companies did not have
to meet, and therefore the company thuoght
it but right that its alUwance should be
increased to the extent of the amount of
this extraordinary expenditure. The coun
cil was petioned to iocrease the allowance
accordingly, but it refused and hence the
abandonment of the steamer by the Arabs.
To a disinterested person the demand of
the Arabs seems reasonable enough, and
the refusal of two or three members of the
council to act with the majority in favor of
the petition is difficult to excuse on any

Lost Ills Dinner.
Britishers with titles do not easily
"take things as they come," and our
traveling wavs are apt to trouble them
somewhat. The English lord, however,
who lost his dinner in Arkansas seems
to have had cause of complaint as well
as the man ho blamed.
Lord Glendale, who was lately travel
ing in Arkansas, when asked how he
liked the country, said:
"Oh, I'm much pleased with the
country and very much enjoy traveling
in it, but, do you know that your raiC
road eating-house system is v ery annoy

persuades himself into a nap, a negro

Doubtless the Englishman thought
that it was adding insult to injury to

then punish him for "getting mad."
The Boy of the Terlod.
Tommy Yerger, a progressive Austin
boy, some fifteen years of age, much to
the disgust of his mother, has acquired
the habit of reading sensational story
papers of the dime-novel style of litera
ture. Yesterday she took possession of
one of his papers, and examined it care
fully. When Tommy came home she
rebuked him severely.
"That is not a fit paper for you to
read. There is a story in it about a trapper
and an Indian maiden that is not de

(Jnulnt Auction Scenes In Bremen.
Although the free Hanseatio City ol
Bremen has gradually dono away with
many of her traditional prerogatives,
yet does she cling to somo of tneni to
this day. The Senators no longer wear
Spanish cloaks or wigs, but tho so
called Council messougers still appear
on solemn occasions in flaming red
coats, knee-breeches, white stockings,
and side-swords. The gates are 'no
longer closed at night, nor aro the bells
rung on the outbreak of a lire; but tho
"Rathskeller" is punctually closed at
10:30 p. in., and nobody is allowed to
enter the sacrod precincts after that
hour. With remarkablo tenacity, how
ever, the good Bremcners adhere to tho
ancient custom of tho so-called "burn
ing candle," by the light of which all
peremptory sales of real estate take
jilaee to this day, as may he seen every
Friday in a hall over the old Exchange.
At one end of a long table is seatoi! a
Judge and scribe, at the other stands the
City Crier, and by his side a Council
messenger in flaming red dress, holding
n stable lantern. In his hand he has a
box filled with ends of small candles
that can burn but a few minutes, and of
which he has to light ono after the other
until no other bulls made before the
candle goes out, in which case the last
and of course highest bidder becomes
tho owner of the estate. As late as tho
beginning of this century every person
who ovorbid another while the candle
was still burning, thereby putting up
the price, received a gratification of a
so-called "line third," equal to about
two marks. Frequently some porters
or errand men would conio in and bid
in order to turn an honest penny by go
ing for tho "fine third," although they
ran the risk of somo weeks' imprison
ment, if by chanco the candle went out
and they thus remained the last bidders
without" being able to pay for the prop
erty knocked dowa to them on account.
It is a comical sight to enter the hall
just at the moment when one bidder
has silenced a competitor. All eyes
turn to the bit of candle in tho lantern,
which grows smaller and smaller;
hardly a brer.th is drawn; the company
looks as if they were petrified. Sud
denly there comes another bid, another
candlo is lighted, and tho comedy is re
peated until finally tho extinction of a
candlo has fastened the sale upon tho
last bidder. This custom of the "burn
ing candle" maybe justly termed one
of the traditional peculiarities of Bre
men, there being but few, if anv, other
German cities or towns in which this
ancient custom still obtains. l'uris
Cocoa ami Chocolate.
Many drinkers of these pleasant bev
erages are unaware as to the method by
which the cocoa seeds are obtaimMl.
Cocoa, or cacao, is extracted from tho
yed of small trees of tho genus theo
aroma, which, when cultivated, grow
from twelve feet t eighteen feet high,
but to a higher elevation in their wild
state. The flowers tire small, and clus
ter on tho branches and trunk, the ma
tured fruit appearing as though artili
oaliy attached. Out ol each cluste
only one pod is allowed to mature, an
this when full grown is from seven
inches to ten inches long bv three
inches to four-and-a-half inches wido,
Ilieiive cells contain each a row of
from live to ten seeds imbedded in a
pink, acid pulp, tho cocoa bean. Tho
tree is indigenous to Mexico, but it can
be cultivated within the twentv-lifth
parallels of latitude, and thrives at am
elevation under 2.0UU feet, but it re"
quires a rich soil, a warm, humid at
mosphere, and protection from cold
winds. The trees are propagated from
seeds in a nursery until they attain a
ncignt ol from lourteen inches to
eighteen inches, when thev are trans
planted and carefully sheltered bv
"danting other trees about them. They
commence to bear about tho fifth year,
but do not attain maturity until tho
eighth, and continue yielding fruit for
nearly nan a century. Jnere is no spe
cial time for harvesting the crop, as tho
trees continue bearing all tho time.

Venezuela the principal gatherings aro
in June and December. Chocolate is
generally mado from the finer varieties
of cocoa seed, and was a favorite bever
age in Central America long before Co
lumbus discovered tbo New World. As
at present prepared chocolate is mado
in cakes, while cocoa is usually sold in
powder, flakes, or nibs. Tho constitu
