. Greenfield's ferry is a sealed mystery to
many of our citizens who have yet to
learn that Cairo has more than one forry
more than one stoam ferry. Many times
each day Mr. Greenfield's trim little boat,
propelled by steam, leaves her landing on
tho west sldo of the city, and carries pas
sengers and hones and teams and wagons
to Missouri, from which Stato it brings
many people, many .teams, many wagons,
many cattle, many eggs, much butter, lots
of corn, and huge quantities of all kinds
of country produce.
Lately Mr. Greenflold hat made many
improvements in bis boat, and among oth
ers ha added an engine built by Mr. John
T. Rennle, of this place. As a specimen
of substantial and neat workmanship the
machinery is hard to beat. Tho cylinder
is 9 inches In diameter, with 1C inch stroke.
The water-wheel shaft running across tho
boat is geared to tho main ahait of tho en
glno with a spur mortice wheel in which
maple cogs are interted which make tho
running of tho machinery noitclcis and,
perfectly smooth. Tbo water wheels are
11 feet diameter with i feet buckets. By
the use of clutch couplings thq engine
can bo run Independently of tho water
wheels, at tho force pump is attached to
the ongine. Tbo nrrangemont allows tho
boiler to bo fed without run
nine the water wheels. Tho boiler
(an upright) is 62 inches In diameter, 0
feot bleb, with 40 3-Inch flues, built for
Mr. Rennto by Mr. D. A. Rhcutan of this
city. Tho bull Is CO feet long, 18 feet
beam; width over guards, 27 feet; bold, 3
feot. The machinery is plaecd well back,
so as to allow ample space forward lor
seven wagons. "With thirty pounds of
steam sbo makes good time, making ten
trip daily, burning only half a cord
of wood in ten houn. She
can make four trips an hour with caic,
including time of loading and unloading.

Y. M. C. A. Tho meeting of this asso
ciation hold on Monday night last was
"out of tho ordinary," and deserves tnoro
than a patting notice. A largo numborof
citizens wero in attendanco, and great in
terest was taken In tho ceremonies and ex
ercises of tho evening. At the stated hour
tbo association wascallod to order by the
Presldont, Mr. 0. P. Parton and Rov' C.
H. Footo, in an earnest prayer, addressed
tho throno of graco. After prayer, tho
business of tho evening was entered upon
and Anally tho discussion wat announced
in order. Tho question was : "Has in
creased wealth a beneficial effect upon the
morals of tho community?1' In tho affir
mative wore Hon. D. W. Munn and Rev.
0. U. Foote; and in the
negative, Mr. S. R. Hay and
Prof. H. S. English, principal of the pub
llo schools. The debate was animated
and ablo, tho affirmative carrying every
thing (except tho verdict) before them;
but tho negative, although lacking some
of tho "divino afflatus," and eschewing
tho too olaborato graces of oratory, dealt
in very sturdy arguments, if tho expres
sion it pcrmissable, and won the question,
Mr. Munn himiolf gracefully ncknowlcd
ing tho corn by voting that tho negntlvo
had tho beit cf tho argument. Wo do not
anticipate n cruiado agalnit wealth as n
remit of this dobato that any porion
wrought up to cnthutlasm bv tho logic of
tho ncgallvo will tcek to Impovcrith Cairo
to mako it more moral, and wo
don't bolievo tho verdict of the
audience was in accordance with common
sense, although It may havo bocn justified
by tho superior arguments of tho gentle
men of tho negative; but wo do hopo tho
debates of which this ono was the begin
ning may bo continued for tho entertain
ment and instruction of tho public.
Tim Wood Pile. Tho time is past in
tho West and South when it made no dif
ference how much wood a family burned.
Even in regions wbero wood is abundant,
tho expense of getting it is a large item of
family cost, and people are learning to
make their wood pile last at long as possi
ble. Thero is no agent that aids this econ"
omy of fuel so much as a Charter Oak
Stove Try It. mySdwlt
The Fenton Cokn Mill. This citab

now prepared to furnish dealers and fami

A "Hard 'Un" Arrested. A follow
by ihe name of Duling a decidedly
"hard cuo" has been in tho city for somo
time, on the sly. His place of conceal
ment was a bouso of ill-fame, on Thir
teenth street, between Poplar street and
Washington avenue. Day beforo ysitcr
day he sent a small boy to Mr. Hanny's
dry goods storo to buy ten yards of calico
for his bawd, giving him a $10 bill of
"thoqueor," with which-to pay for tbo
goods. Mr. Banny detected tho coun
terfeit, and sonttho boy back for anothor
bill. Tho boy returned with n $5 note,
also of tho "queer." Chief of Folico
Myers, who had been on tho look-out for
Duling, and had spotted his messenger,
followed tho boy and arrested Puling on
Monday night. On tho person of tho pris
oner was found
Ono huge navy rovolvor;
One Smith and Wesson revolver;
Six pocket books;
Ono nicklo butter knifn;
A lot of silver spoons;
An assortment of Jewelry;
Ono fllo, etc.;
A little monoy nil good;
and other articles too numerous to men

keeping of Mr. McHalo, and yesterday
morning took him before United States
Commissioner Candce, on the charge of
trying to pas counterfeit money. The
evidence, however, was not sufficient, and
the gay boy was discharged. How long Mr.
