-It is with regret that Mr. I. S.
Joseph's many friends will learn thai
he w ill soon leave us to organize a
bank at Cape Girardeau, Mo. As was
known to some of our tit .ens, Mr.
Joseph has for some time been in cor
respondence with prominent citizens
of that city and has recently been
there and rompU-ted the organization.
He has proved to be one of the most
thorough and competent bank men in
the State, and is one ot our substan
tial citizens, aud it is with deep regret
that we lose him. but wc arc glad to
learn that he w ill keep his stock iu
The Hank of Lonoke is
one of the most profitable in the State
and it speaks w ell for its management
that none of its stock is for sale. If
the new bank to be organized at CajK
(iirardeau is as successful as the
iiauk of Ixiuoke has been, and wc are
satisfied it will lie under Mr. Joseph's
iniuageinei t, a bright future awaits
it. Hut while be has won the confi
dence of our business men, Mrs.
Joseph lias endeared herself to all
who have met her, and the whole
community w ill regret deeply her loss.

Following is what the Murphysboro
papers have to say of tbe Cape people
who went on an excursion to Mur
physboro last Sunday:
The excursion given by the Eureka
Rand from Cape Girardeau, arrived
in onr city about 10 o'clock Monday
morning. and raine up to expectations
far as numbers were concerned. Il
consisted of four passenger coaches
tilled to their utmost, and Ihe people
who attendetl were evidently labor
ing men and families, those who were
engaged with business on other days.
Nothing was done during tbe day to
mar the high opinion hel.l by our
people of those living at tbe Cape.
"I'l-on arrival here they were met
by Wagner's K. of P. baud. Aftcran
exchange of greetings, the Eureka
band, followed by the K. ot 1 es
corted the excursionists to tbe cily.
marching around tbe public square
aud then towards Turner's Park
where most of the crowd went lo
siend the day. The time was passed
quietly, nothing occurring to disturb
the pleasantness of the occasion.
During the early part of the after
noon many persons left ihe park, pre
ferring to stroll around our city, view
ing the things and place interesting
to strangers. A heavy rain occurred
during the afternoon which caused a
break in these pleasures, though it was
brief. The sun shone brightly and
the air was cooler, as the result of tbe
-Tbe time at which the excursion
train was to return was 4 o'clock, and
a little while before this time they
marched in trout the park. The bands
halted at the crossing of Cherry and
Main streets aud quite a musical con
cert ensued, several excellent pieces
being played by each band. Tbe
crowd then moved eastward on Wal
nut to tbe G. T. k C. depot. Aa the
train had not arrived, several good
selections were played by the bands,
some in concert. tV hen the train was
run up tbe crowd soon tilled it, and
amidst many friendly good-byes and
mutual good wishes, tbe excursionists
left promptly at 4 o'clock. We are
sure that they enjoyed tbe trip to onr
city, and we were certainly glad to
have them come." Era.
"Prof. Chan. Wagner, of this city,
formerly lived in Cape Girardeau, and
organized and taught tbe Eureka Cor
net Band of that city, since which time
it has made quite s reputation for good
music. Professor Wagner visited bis
old friends some two or three weeks
ago and invited them and the band
boys to come over to Murphysboro
and sec what a real, live town we bad.
Tbe invitation was taken under ad
visement and after due consideration
it was accepted, and Prof. G us Schultz,
leader of the Eureka Baud, came to
this citv aud consulted tbe Mayor and
other prominent citizens about the
. 1 S
excursion coming ncre on .-sunuay. o
objections were made, and according
to previous arrangements, tbe party
arrived at 10:30 yesterday over the
(irand Tower and Carboudale Rail
road. "There had been 312 tickets sold at
the Cape, and a number of others
joined tbe excursion who live along
the line of the road, augmenting tbe
number to fullv 350.
"The excursion was met at the dc-
Kt by Wagner's K. of P. Band, of this
city, and a large number of our citi
zens. Tbe excursionists came down
Walnut street to tbe court-house
square, from winch many went di
rectly to Turner's Park, while others
strolled leisurely around tbe city and
visited the principal public works and
l-oiuts of interest. The pleasures of
the day were cut short by a rain which
came pouring down in tbe afternoon.
"This was not a party of dudes or
liuc-haired people. The excursion
was made up of workiugmen and their
families, men who cannot be spared
from tbeir work to get out for an air
ing on any other day. They were
well behaved ladies aud gentlemen
who wer just as worthy of an ovation
as the richest diguitaries of the land. I
"The party expressed themselves as
lieing well pleased with their visit to
pur city and hoped they bad done us
no Harm, ami win no iiouui repeal me
visit when an occasion offers. The
party left on time and arrived home
without accident." Independent.

The delegate from Ibis place who

possible that some work might be
done this fall. Tbe delegate were

through which tbe road would pass,
together with other matters, such as
