We are luformed that Capt. Shields
and Mr. John T. Dickson, manager of the
"Romany Rye," made quite a wager on the
approaching election. If wo understand
correctly, Mr, Dickson bets $250 that Mis
souri goes Republican; $250 that Dick
Oglesby is elected Governor of Illinois by
10,000 or more majority; $250 that Indiana
will not go Democratic by as high as
10,000; $100 that New York City, to
King's bridge, will give 60,000 Democratic
majority; $400 that New York State will
go Democratic. Captain Shields of course
bets the opposite wty in each case. The
bets aggrrgate $1,250, and forfeits of $50
each were put up.
A $5 electric lamp is being extensive
ly advertised, the impression being convey
ed by the illustration that a battery in the
baso of the burner geucrates the electricity
which furnishes the light. Now those who
know anything about electricity are aware
that to produce light intensity is required,
ani to produce that intensity power is nee
essary. The great elclrical problem of
the age is to construct a battery, which
will generate sufficient energy to produce
light. This $5 trinket may be able to pro
duce a spark, but thoae who buy it with
the expectation of getting something capa
ble of pnducing a continuous light will bo
woefully disappointed and bewail the hss
of a valuable five dollar bill. Exchange.
Major Ed Hatliday yesterday erected on
the lower end of wharfboat NoS, a tall
and stately flag staff, on which the weather
signals will hereafter be displayed. Two
colors will be used, the red to indicate the
temperature, and the blue to show tho state
of the barometer. The following will be
easily understood: Red sun higher tem
perature; red moon, lower temperature;
red star, stationary temperature; blue sun,
general rain or snow; blue moon, clear or
fair weather; blue star, local rain or snow.
The signals will be hoisted every morning
at about eight o'clock. The location is a
convenient one, and the public will soon
earn 4.o look for the fligs every morning.
A Sad Death.
A lady giving her name as Mrs. Paulina
Underwood, and claiming to be a traveling
Christian preacher, died suddenly near Pa-
ducah Tuesday evening of this week. She
stopped at the house of Theodore Kelley,
in the country, near Maxon's Mills, the day
before, and said she had walked from
Woodville. Among the effects of t'ie de
ceased were found several letters and pos
tal cards. One of the letters was written
from Cave-in-Rock, 111., and though not
signed, was evidently from her mother.
A postal card is signed Mary E. Martin and
speaks of Mrs. Farthington, Joe It ise and
Hirve Wells. The lady wis giek but a
shert time, and seemed confident tint she
was about to die, expressing a hope that
death would come quickly. Mr. Kelley
will keep what iff cts of worth were lft by
the deceased, and will send them to her
relatives if requested. He would hUi like
to bear from the relatives if they desire
further information tlian is given above.
