The steamer Fowler draws all the water
there is in the Ohio now, without being

It is sometimes asserted that St. Louis
is safe and slow. Safe it certainly is, but
what city ever offered such attractions to
the visitor as St. Louis offered this fall
the exposition, the illumination, the Veiled
Prophets procession and the great fair.
St. Louis is not only safe, but it heads the
list of the enterprising cities of the Union.

van, Dure & Co., aud W. II. Lyons, of
which she is receiving daily. tf
Dr. Greer is mentioned as an independ
ent candidate for county commissioner next
November. The Dr. would be a very good
man for the place. Intelligent, well pogted
about the county, and public spirited. This
must not be construed, however, as de
tracting from the outgoing member of the
board, Mr. Peter Saup, who has made a
very valuable member during the past two
years, tnd could probably' bo induced to
stand for re-election.
Persona desiring to attend the great St,

committee, from Chairman Obcrly, of the
stats committee, states positively that Car
ter Harrison will be in this city on the
ICth instant., to address the people. Chair

which Cairo ought to furnish six or eight..
Prof, and Mrs. Haganiavo opened an
art school in the building just above Mr.
Daniel Hartmao's establishment on Com
mercial ave ue. They have fitted up their
apartments very neatly, witti all conven
iences for teaching free bind drawing, etc.,
aud numerous attractive evidences of their
own work are displayed. Tbey have come
here from Louisville, not with the inten
tion of locating here, but for the purpose
of introducing a new system in drawing
and painting that has many advantages
and will commend itself at once to the
would- be student. Their studio is open
all day, and the public will be welcome.
Tuesday Maj. Mitchell, in charge of
the work on the Mississippi here, had
about six hundred feet of mattress snnk in
its place at the bottom of the river, along
the base of the bank. The work was a
particular one and was entirely successful.
The mittress held together firmly and went
down in its place without any hitch. A
large quantity of rock was used in the
work. About two hundred feet is still out
of water and this will be sunk as its con
struction proceeds down the river, so that
the whole will be one continuous mattress

long a disturbing element in the local poli
tics of Dccatcr, has at last been settled, at
least satisfactorily to the liquor or anti-

of the city council .f D- ca'ur it was decid

wbil'i the inkwns were closed and the cor
porations deprived of the revenue formerly

council vted to grnt license, and the rate

One of the Thirteenth street courte
sans, known as Claudie Stuart, did yester
day between 12 and 1 o'clock, from the ef
fects of morphine taken by her the night
before with the purpose of committing tui
cide. Dr. Parker, who was called to attend
ber about 10 o'clock yesterday morning,
found her too far gone to help her. She
was unconscious and breathing irregularly
and heavily. She bad sent out for the poi
son the night before, and taktn it about
midnight. She had also made preparations
for the disposal of her property the even
ing before, saying that she intended to kill
herself, which was not believed, however.
She had been on a spree for a week or
longer because ef some trouble unknown.
When tound yesterday morning she was un
conscious, and she did not regain her micd
at all. She was about forty years of age:
came here from Paducah about two years
ago and established herself in what is
known as the "White House." She is said
to have been the daughter of respectable"
people in Ballard county. She has three
children living in Danville, III., all grown
two boys and one girl. The real motive
for her rash act Is a mystery, though
there is some reason to believe that "there
is a man at the bottom of it." Coroner
Fitzurald summoned a jury and held an in
quest, the verdict being in accord with the
circumstances as given above.
