jumps, and swinging himself around the
corner dashed madly down the steps,

the courthouse door lK'pnty-Sheritrs Pass
and McKeon also joined in the pursuit
and at one time Prvde drew a bead on the
fugitive, but could not fire for fear of
wounding some ladies who were passing.
In the alley he drew down again and
snapped his pistol, but it failed to .lire.
Some eight or ten persons had by this
time joined in the chase, but lVince finally
succeeded in outstripping his pursuers
and escaped The motion for a new trial
will not be argued any further.
The construction of mattresses has
been continued during the past ten days bv
Maj. Miller, aliove Hopefield, and 604 by
140 feet of mattress was constructed and
1032 by 140 feet of mattress sunk. Hereto
fore the mattresses have all been straight.
The one sunk during the ten davs was
curved so as to conform to the outline of
the bank. The mat was sunk without any
accident, and 400 bv forty feet upper bank
revetment was made. Duringthe ten days
the hydraulic grader graded 655 lineal
feet, or 4105 cubic yards of earth, at a cost
of twenty-two and one-third rents per
lineal foot, or three and a half rents per
cubic yard. The work was considerably
delayed by a thick stratum of blue clay,
overlying" aand, which was very hard to
cut. The Riuurboat, John R. Meigs, has
been employed in removing snags, and
accomplished the following work. Eighty
nine snags removed and two rack-heaps
broken up. It is expected she will finish
by October 10th. The Graham and the
Daphne have been employed in towing
barges and in obtaining, .supplies from
Memphis. The two willow parties fur
nished 542 cords of brush and seventy-six
cords of poles during the ten days. Con
siderable difficulty is experienced in ob
taining a sufficient supply of brush on ac
count of the low stage of water and the
trouble in getting and holding labor. Nine
hundred and thirty cubic yards of stone
were received doting the ten day. ' '

J. R. McDonald I am opposed. I don't

J. T. Bkc.bir If I had my way, it should

C. G'.kbkl Think it a fraud. Don't
you? AVhat street would we have if that
waa ruined? 1 would rather have vehicles
than street-cars.
John Lilly Am decidedly opposed.
My opinion is it is an outrage. " The street
was laid with the people s money and
ought not to be cut up.
J. N. St'TiiERLAXn Tlioy should have
put it down before the street was paved.
It is too late now. The street should be
allowed to remain as it it.
P. J. Qi-Kii.EY I have no objection to
cars, but Second street ought not to be
torn np. If they mean business they
should have made that proposition before.
D. W. SIonroe It might have been
well enough if they had laid it before the
pavement was put down. I don't think
there ought to more than one track on any
A R. Moore I believe I would prefer
Third, but would not join in a fight against
having it on Second. Theypiave not more
than enough money to put their existing
tracks in order.
G. T. Bassett It is a big nuisance.
Never heard of a greater piece of folly. If
they had thought of it sooner it might
have done. The pavement will last twiue
as long without iu.
C. N. Grosvkxor Except for the de
struction of the street I would not be op
posed. It would have been well enough
if it had been put there before the street
was built. It ought not to be done now.
Ji rxiE R. J. Morgan Am a street rail
road man and want tracks on all the
streets. One should lie taken from Main.
But I cannot see the necessity. They
should be laid so as not to interfere with
C. AV. Fraeer I don't know what the
rharter of the company is, but if they were
to lay two tracks there, those residing on
Second street could sno out an injunction.
No corporation has a right to obstruct pub
lic travel. .
N. C. Taylor They ought to go else
where, to outer sections of the city more
in need. Slain is close enough. They
should not take the only drive. If they
put a track in every street then I do not
see why Second should be excepted. .
John Overton, jr. Would regret very
much to see it; and for one think
Keonnd street ought to remain free and
unobstructed so as to relieve Main, for
which purpose it was built. It is the beat
paved street in the city, and nnder no cir
cumstances should it be cut up with tracks.
Moore A Hot, ah Wouldn't like it. This
a street for heaw hauling, and Main is
close enough for those who want a car. It
would be a useless expense to the com
pany and a great inconvenience to the
citizens. I would be in favor of one on
Main and one on Second, bat if they get
permission to put down one they will want
another. .
James B. Cook, Architect Says that he
thinka that Second atreet ought to be held
especially for retail business, which, In the

, A c'Toteai; . , (
A correspondent mk' 'f!?d hur,he Ar
peal is the only paper in the city that has
opposed the laying of a street-car track on
Second street The great majority of this
people look upon it in the first "place as
approximating very closely to .an, act of
folly, at least an unwise and. unremunera
tive investment How many will fail to
travel upon a car simply because they
have to travel from one 6treet to another
in order to reach it? But in the second
place they look upon it as a great outrage
to disfigure the only street running north
and south suitable for , vehicles, with a
street-car track, and that just after the city,
at great exjwnse, has put it in good condi
tion. It is not pleasant to drive upon any
street with a railway track upon it, but it
is an actual punishment to drive npon
Main street, owingto the irregularity of the
surface ; and, furthermore, it is dangerous
on account of the grade. -Many an accident
baa occurred from horses.' slipping up on
Main street I suppose the wise men who
fixed the grade thought if they did not
have a grade as steep as a house-roof to run
the water off the stone would rot. They
or the city ought to be made to pay for
every accident occasioned by this unnec
essarily steep grade. Such being the con
dition of affairs on Main, do let us have
one street where we will not be molested
by streetcars and their iron. If it is true,
as they assert, that their cliarter grants
them the power of putting down tracks on
any street, and if it is also true that the
city has the power of charging them for
the use of the street, then the charges
should amount to a prohibition, or else
the present officers ought to be asked
to resign or left in sweet retirement
after this term. Again, if their charter
enjoins them to use the most approved
style of track, why are they not com
pelled to abide by it? Look at the un
sightly iron in many places, reselling so
far above the surface that it is difficult to
extricate the wheels of a vehicle from it
after once getting them inside of it. Onlv
the other day I saw the wheel on a dray
broken off by trying to turn out of a car
track. , Keep them off Second street if it
is a practicable thing and make them lay
down first-class tracks where they already
run. Please to give them no rest until
this matter is settled in favor of the
people. b."

Mi.le. Anne Dronsert, a promising pu
pil of the Paris Conservatoire, was sitting
one morning at her window, in the Rue Ser
tier, when a poor woman came along the
street singing in a low and broken voice
in the hopes of earning a few sous. Her
glance was directed pitifully toward the
houses on either side, but the windows all
remained closed, and the much-needed
help came not She turned sorrowfully
away to try her fortune in another quar
ter; but the aching limits refused to carry
her further, and the poor wretch sank
down on the pavement It was but the
work of a moment for Anne Dronsert to
fly down the stairs to the succor of her
unfortunate sister, Yo raise her from the
ground, and to read starvation plainly
written on her wan features. -Money sne
had none to give her own studies and
the necessities of daily life absorbed the
whole of her little pittance but she took
the woman's hand in hers, and with the
full force of her young voice woke the
echoes of the street with one of the airs
which had so often won the admiration of
the professors at the Conservatoire. Like
n&gyc the windows on all sides flew open,
and at the conclusion of the song a shower

Amenran. 1 happen to be the surgeon
who did the operation, and herewith give
you the real facta. Mr. Charles Ingram, a
young man about nineteen, came to me in
1SS1 with a tumor nnder his chin about
the size of a hen's egg. He aaid that when
be was a child there was a "little lump"
there about as large as a hazel-nut, with a
"little hole in it" It had never discharged
anything. AA'hen I examined it I found
the "little hole" still in it, but no dis
charge, and the probe revealed nothing but
a narrow opening about an iaca deep. .1

TrJtld Hie tumor, of course. On opeiiliitf
the tumor, after Its removal, it waa found
to contain hairs, some ot them fully three
inches long. That he "had no beard," is
all a mistake. The tumor had no influ
ence upon the growth or -absence of the
beard, and the facts are mat he bad an
unusual growth of beard for his age. - Mr.
Ingram is a very nice, rather handsome
young gentleman, living about eight miles
from Trenton, where the operation waa
performed. So you see it was not so much
a "freak of nature," after all. "If you think
this correction worth making, you can do
so. J. p. m'gee.

The Earatsllnar IntUiM of the
lay Mada by H. R. Oncer
Opening- DayVialanft f Enclsaat-
aaent Whirls Delight Handi-eaa.
The elegant millinery establishment of
M. It Cruger, io. 2.0 Main street, was
visited by hundreds of the elite of the city
last lhursday, many of whom were no
mean judges of the goods thev admired.
and who pronounced the display the
handsomest by far that has ever
been made in the city. Those passing
along Main street were insensibly attracted
first by the show-windows on either side
of the entrance, which were works of art
In that on the left stood what might have
been an enchanted log cabin, in minia
ture. The frame work was covered with
old gold satin, fluted to represent the cor
rugated sides of a log cabin. Over the
door ot the cabin were the words Cruger s
Opening," and through the windows, which
were hung with tiny lace curtains, might
be seen a wealth of expensive trifles
charmingly arranged. In a little gable
window stood a tiny darky, picturesquely
attired and grasping a very small broom.
The eaves of the cabin were clad in rich
autumn leaves, the whole relieved
by a background of expensive fab
rics oi changelul hue. 1 he other
window was, if possible, even
lovelier than that already described. It
was called the "Bridal AVindow." and any
vounp ladv lookini? at it. with ita tinmn
whispered in her ear, must at once have
had visions of connubial bliss. At first
blush it appeared to be simply a mass of
fleecy white, with graceful curves bending
ana Dienaing into eacn other, in ttie cen
ter a large and pure white dove, its pin
ions spread, was aeiuy poised upon the
very tips of a cluster of snowy ostrich
plumes. In the background, half hidden
among a cloud of some soft white stuff.
rested a creamy pheasant with a tuft of
delicate canary color something very
rare and expensive. Rich laces, plumes
and embroidered satins made np the back
ground, caught up here and there by the
claws of tiny white birds.
The main entrance was draped with
lace, wnicn nung in ncn folds to the floor.
Pushing the curtains aside one entered
what in another country mignt have been
easily mistaken for a Turkish bazar. The
splendor of the scene was almost dazzling
and imperceptibly carried one. in imagina
tion, to the palaces of tho Orient, with its
houris and ita almost priceless ma
terials for dress. It was, perhaps,
with an idea of this effect that
the display was so arranged. On the left,
as one entered, appeared graceful festoons
of imported fabrics, so hung as to make it
appear that they were suspended in mid
air. On the left, arranged above the cases
in the same manner, were rich plumes,
velvets, piusnes and birds, in the cases
were an almost endless variety of ribbons,
laces, children a hoods, trimmings and
ornaments, some of them in the very high
est style of art From the festoons, from
the ceiling and from the chandeliers,
baskets of the most expensive artificial
nowers, oi every hue ol the rainbow,
were hung, trailing!gracefullv to the floor,
or wound in arabesque about some pillar
or other support. The ladies' boudoir was
divided off from the front portion by em
broidered lace curtains, festooned and re
lieved by hanging baskets of tropical
flowers and green sprays. Here was the
shrine enclosing the idol of the feminine
heart the receptacle of the Parisian bon
net ! To describe them would be impos
sible, Dut a lew oi these treasures demand
some brief description. Two of the hand
somest were pure white, covered by flowing
plumes and ornamented by genuine canary
birds, ine watls ot the tmudmr were
tastefully decorated with paintings, and it
was the scene during the day of more
feminine' enthusiasm and rapture than
perhaps, it has ever been before. Too
much cannot be said in praise of the young
ladies by whom the display was arranged,
under the supervision of Mr. Cruger. Miss
Maggie Curley was the artist who built
the log cabin. The bridal window was
prepared by Miss Rosa Steinbrocher, and
the bazars were disposed under the per
sonal supervision of Miss Eda Pendleton,
a trio of young ladies who are universally
popular on account of their many graceful
accomplishments and thorough acquaint
ance with the business in which they are

Messrs. Haines Bros. :
Gentlemen After much experience
with, and careful examination of, your
celebrated Epright Pianofortes, it gives
me great pleasure to express to you my
warm appreciation of their superior excel
lence. As instruments for accompanying
the voice they possess tliat tine sustaining
quality, so helpful to an artist, yet so
rarely found. As solo instruments, they
combine a brilliancy and perfection of
action which was formerly supposed to
lelonir exclusively to the Concert Grand.
AVishing you unbounded success, I have

For ycttrs I was afllicted with dry tetter
of the most obstinate ty. Was treated
by many of the best physicians; took
quantities of mercury, potash and arsenic,
which, instead of curing the tettei, crippled
me up with mineral poison and rheumat
ism. The tetter continued to grow worse,
and the itching almost made me crazy. In
this condition I was induced to take Swift's
Specific, and the result was as astonisliintf
as it was gratifying. In a few months the
tetter was entirely well, the mercurial
poisoning all out of my system, and I waa
a well man and due only to Swift's Spe
cific. All like sutTerers should take it.
