List year a fellow named Swconey, who

cnlahoosed In this city, and croatod qui to
an excitement by eating ntout a pound of
flosh out of the calf of jailor McIInlo's
A few days ago Sween returned to
Cairo, nnd visited tho theater in tho
evening, when ho boflamo noisy nnd pro
claimed himself n "llvlngdovll" in loud
and boisterous terms. Officer Sheehan and
Cain promptly arrested him, aqd took him
tho calaboose. Just as tao doors wcro
about to bo closed upon the prisoner, ho
sprang nt Sheehan, caught him by tho
whiskers, drow his head toward tho ground
nnd was about to kick his intended victim
in the face, whon Cain's club vigorously
applied made htm let go his liol l.. In jail,
nftor taking n nnp, ho smashed buckets,
chairs, nnd ovorything that enmo to his
hands or that hi hands could got to, al
most frightened his fellow prisoners out of

his cell sprang upom him with tho ferocity
of tho tiger, and but if or zinc's herculean
strength would havo mado fthort work
with him. Hut Macconquerod, and, with
tho aid of the other prisoners, handcuffed
tho wretch. This fellow Is n dangerous

During tho past two weeks our citizens
havo been curling the quality of thc.gas
furnished to them by the (las Company,
nnd havo gaslly denounced every man,
woman nnd child coaneclcd with tho
works In nny way. Some havo laid tho
blame at this or that man' dor, and nil tho
directors found n cart load of blame nt
each of their doors.
Hut, Infuct, nobody was to llamc for tho J
bad gas. It camo of Itself. It was com
pelled to, nnd why should tho citizens com
plain 7 Tho trutn If, bad gas gal that
smell, louder than tho roar of n very large
cannon is tho best of gas. Good judges
prcferlt.and wbynot? Whal'sln iiimcll?
Wouldn't a bad itluk by any other nnuie
than gas smell as dellclouily? Tf It would
not wo should like to know tho reason.
From which It must be apparent to tho
render, that tho tin Company Is not to
blnmofor tho quality of the gu thoy have
lately been furnishing to thu consumers.
This, wo think, 1 clenr.
Day beforo yesterday n meeting of the
Hoard of Director was held to ascertain
what wai thoinnttor, nnd why, aid If some
thing couldn't bo done. A rcidutlon was
passed directing tho procurcmeit of belter
machinery, and, woundorstandAtcps have
nlrcady been taken In that direction.
Considerable 111 feeling has grown up
between some of tho mouiberi of the com
pany, which wo hopo may bo wirtly al
layed. It is not right that they should
quarrel. Their hand wore never mado
to scratch, c. Yesterday, on tho street,
rather excited, and, wo understand, harsh
words passed between two olllccri of tho
company. Why is this thus? Hoth gen
