News of last Saturday s iys: "The Demo

A di ad man was found in a box car

nothing but a timo book, indicating that
he had worked for A. B. Finch a short time
since. Au lniiuest was held hundav fore

with tho few known facts. It is thought
that the man died of apoplexy.

ous tasx oi seeing it cntorcod. It la one
thing to take a horso to water and another
to make him drink ono thing to prohibit
tho aalo of liquor and another to prevent
men from drinking. Kansas has her "ca

who helped secure it in that state, now Bee
tho futility of tho mensuro and aro in favor
of resubmission. Others who formerly had
prohibition arguments at their tontrue's
end on all occasions now sing low and feel
like tho Dutchman who caught tho wild

beautiful theory, but those who, by their

Mr. A. Comings received a dispatch
from Pueblo, Col., yesterday evening, stat
ing that Charles Mason, a former and well
known Cairo boy, could live but n few
hours. Charlie, as hu w is universally call
ed, has been in poor health for some time,
his home being in Emporia, Kan., and a
short timo ago startod f jr Colorado Springs
in the hope of benefitting his health. He
beoamo so ill by the timo ho reached
Pueblo, that ho had to stop, and probably
before these lines aro read ho will have
crossed tho dark river. 'lie is a son of Mrs.
A. Comings, of this city. Elmer Comings
started last night for Pueblo.
"Tho Ancients" it is now that was last

Rittenhouse, secretary, and C. W. Hender
son, treasurer, llio niles ana by-laws
limit the membership to 25 couples only
married peoplo admitted, and all invita
tions barred except to str ingerj, young or
old, visiting members of the club. The
club will hold meetings twico a month from
8 to 12 with sandwiches and coffee and
will rent a suitable hall for tho soason.
There is some good material in U, and it

The Paducah Standard's "man about
town" says that ono day recently Broad
way, in that city, "preseuted a sceno ot
business and bustle which would make
Cairo riso from her bed, but to fall back
into tho mire and sipc water deeper than
ever. I Ue i'aducah m. a. t. cannot be
blamed for getting on his hind legs and
crowing at tho unusual sight of "business
and bustle" in that sleepy burg, but the in
sinuation that Cairo would feel bad over it
is a smile-provokcr. Cairo is "rising from
her bed," to be sure rising rapidly but
not to "fall back" aain. Come down and
see how fast Mississippi sand bars are be"
ing dumped into our streets nnd alleys, and
tho lots of numerous enterprising citizens.
At the present rate the "much maligned
city" will soon be in shape to smile at high
water, which is tho only thing that ever has
given ner any gnet, ana it only comes
occionally. "Business and bustle" are
constantly on hand.

A Lost Train.
Capt. Billy Williams, of the St. Louis
Cairo nilroad, is shot a train of cars con
aisting of flvo coaches, ona baggage and
locomotive. It appears Jhat a few delude
Republicans couceivod tho idea of what is
known as a "great Republican domotiBtra
tion" at Murphysboro, and in order to make
tho matter a perfect success, old gentleman
Oglesby was induced to straighten out his
paralytic legs, tono up his weak voice, pol
lsh his profanity and attitudinize ns the
main attraction, about which it was expect
ed at least one Hundred white and two
thoustmd negro Republicans would hive
Of course all railroads were expected to
do tlieir duty in tho premises and among
those who gushed nnd 'thused was our gen
ial friend Williams, who, although a Dem
ocrutof tho bluest blood, naturally became
hilarious over the prwpec.t of his road be
lug largely benefitted by the outp'.tiring of
tho masses expected from this particular
portion of the earth's surface. Handbills
were profusely distributed, tho newspapers
teemed with the prospective "grand demon
straiion, ana ine energetic Williams was
besieged on ail sides for seats, tickets, time
tables, and the exact hour tho conquering
train was to pull out. Everything, was in a
stato of excitement, with Capt. Billy on top,
stirring thintrs up. Alas, nun proposes
and ths devil disposes. Tho fivo coaches
left Cairo without a single, solitary passen
ger. "JSevcr nuud,"said the credulous
Williams, "just you wait until the train
reaches Jonesborn; you 11 find there aint
room enough in the cinches for the people.
Have ordered the conductor to telegraph
fiora that point the ci n-lition ot his trip,"
and the captain smiled "child-liko fend
bland." Tiie message was eagetly, anx
lously expected from Joiiesboro, but not
until 2:30 p. m. did it put in nti appear
ance, reading as follows:
Jonkuoho, III., 2:28 r. m.
Capt. Wll'.ltms, (luno al Agent, Cairo.
"Arrived here safely on time. Have
three passengers, actual cunt. One Dt m-
ncn,, one Butlerite and one suspicious
looking individuil who declines to giv his
political si'ntiiT.ents, but a largo black bot
tle found in coat pocket warrants b-iliet
that he is a Prohibitionist. What shall I
do? Answer quick.
Of course a dispatch of this character
was calculated to jar the finer sensibilities
of a heavier man than Capt. Williams, who
for the moment was completely daft under
the terrible revolution of feelings natural
under the circumstances, but with the
buoyancy of youth and tho determination
of manhood he seized an eagle quill and
rapidly penned the following graphic dis
patch : ,
To Conductor cucorelon train JoiiPtbiTO, III.

a coach, hire a brass band and l'o into

The strangest part of the story is yet to
come. I no train never stopped at Mur

Bismarck reporting its passage by that
point at daylight this morning.
