make Cairo his source of supply, when tho
Cairo A Vlncennes road is opened to
Harrisburg, he feels an Interest In our

has received through the papers that
there Is a dry goods' department In our
trade, is through Rellly'slocals,and that
gentloman is trying to close out.
Our subscriber asks for Information
that thould be furnished by our adver

e&ttsfled with tho general answer that
the Cairo market will probably prove
equal to all bis demands.

Wo announced, several weeks ago,
that Messrs. Halllday Bros ,whllo boring
at DuQuoln to, determine If there were
seams of coal underlying those already
worked there, had struck a velu of salt
water. A quantity of the brino was sub
mitted to the Inspection of the State Go
ologlst, who, having analyzed It, reports
"A test of the brino shows 2.860 grains
of solid matter to tho gallon of water,
consisting largely of common salt. It
has some carbonate of lime und magne
sia, and probably sulphate of magnesia
and sulphate of lime."
"It Is my opinion that you passed
through the sirong salt brino horizon in
the vicinity of sux hundred feet, and it Is
hardly worth whllo to proceed farther
with tho bore for salt water. Four de
grees Is notstrong enough to work with
profit. It should not be less than soven.
The section of the bore is very Instruc
tive." The well has been sunk to the depth o(
900 feet, but has disclosed no workable
seam of coal below the DuQuoln seam.
The well as it stands is pronounced "sim
ply an artesian mineral well."

About two weeks ago an infant child
was loft at the houso of a Miss Moore, on
Fourth street, by a woman who said she
resided at Jackson, Missouri. Tho Infant
was taken In charge by tho managers of
the Orphan Asylum, and remained thero
until yesterday, when Mrs. Summers,
the mother of the little boy recently
killed by the earn, called, claimed the
child and carried It away. It Is probably
that she, being a widow woman, depend
ent upon tho labor of her own hands for
tho support of herself and five little chil
dren, disposed of tho Infant as stated,
in the hope that It would rcceivo better
care than she could bestow upon it.
Her extreme poverty and tho loss of
her boy, have, wouuderstan, dprostrated
her In a bed of sickness from which, it is
though, sho wlll.never arise.
