It is reported that two well known
citizens of Mound City, were arrested, on
Wednesday last, and placed under bonds
for their uppenranco beforo tho next Pu
laski circuit court, to answer the grave
charge of forgory. Until wo nro more
fully assured that tho arrest was for good
caui-e, wo deem it advisable to withold
Police Court. Mollio Bridget was
yesterday arrested by olllcor Martin, for
Imbibing too froely of thourdont, and lined

A drawiiack to Cairo of no inconsidor
ablu character, has been thu annual accu
mulations of sipc. water. It is a fact that
has scarcely escaped tho attention of our
citizons, thnt there has, yenr after year,
been n lessening of tho supply. There is
reason now, for indulging tho hopo that,
in tho futuro, wo shall escape annoyance.
I'm m that source altogether.
The old wooden sewer, put down ten
years ago, on Commercial avenue, bo
tween Nineteenth and Twentieth streets
has been takon up, and a new nnd largo

involved tho removal of several hundred

pendituro of considerable monoy. Wash

Everybody knows Jim Broadie, the one
armed soldier who was brought into con
spicuous notice during the Munn-Crebii
congressional contest; but everybody
doesn't know thnt Jim has recently been
called upon to facu n largo and very stormy
sea of domestic trouble Sumo weeks aco
tho confiding Jim took into his home, as n
boarder, a man younger than himself and
a great deal handsomer. The man's namo
was John Wilson. Mrs. Broadio took a
fancy to the boarder, and it was not lent;
beforo Jim had occasion to "smell a rat'
of very largo dimensions. Ho watched
Wilson. Wilson said that he'd "be d-
if he liked to be watched," and in a IU o
what seemed to bo virtuous indignation
packed up his woaring apparel and left
tlio house. Mrs. It roadie discovered that
the had pressing business at Cairo. Six
hours later she met Wilson on tho Fisk at
Mound City, and at an early hour the fol
lowing morning tho pair took a room in a
Paducah hotel as Mr. and Mrs. Wilson
Broadie, need we say, was angry. He in
voked dire curses upon tho heads
of faithless wito and tho serpen
Wilson, and thought of offering
larc amount of rosdy monoy for an
opportunity to take personal salisfac'ion
His tcrriblo anger had not cooled when
he heard of their whereabouts. He made
hasto to reach Paducah. Ho confronted
tho runaways, nnd did blood atone for
tho wrongs ho had suffered? Not much
Jim "took it out" in swearing. IU let
Mr. Wilson and the faithless Mrs. Baoadio
know that thny had served him a scurvey
trick, and then with nn awful threat
against tho next Mrs. Broadio that played
the snmo game on him, ho did tho only
sonsible thing that was left for him to do.
Ho told tho guilty couple that, so far as
ho was concerned, thoy could " go to hell;'
as for himself he was going back to Mound
City. Ho returned, and now, who will be
