A Horrible riot.
l'or several days past, says tha Mow?
phis .tppenl, thero has been loafing
around Covington, up in Tipton Coun

vicinity. On Saturday evening last, 1
Mr. (lo.it managed to ingratiate him- '
self into the confidence of Millard Dob- Jj
son, a young man of boijio HI or 20 V
summons from Ihe vicinity of Garland, F-
and who, front a too frequent liuiui-
genco in bad whisky, had rendered j
himself Incapable of t-elf-pi enervation.
This human fiend took the young man
in charge and proposed to carry him J
home, but, instead of tal.irg the road
toward (iarland, went up the railroad v
truck a few hundred yards, and then, '
idler robbing him of what little changu.?
ho had with him, and stripping him of J,
an utmost new coat ami vest, placed r
tho unconscious form of thu boy on tlio .
track, and left him a helpless victim i
to destruction by tho evening train, 1
Uio in tt few moinuiitH. At this point
1 located tho w.ttcr-triik of tbciailroad, i
anil near thero lives Mr. Auderson, tlio j
blind attendant of tho tank, and his I
wife. A moment or t.vo beforo the ar-
rival oi tho train Mrs. Anderson
chanced to discover tho situation of tho
young man, and with thu assistance ot
a lady neighbor, who was visiting liur
that night, rushed forth in the darkness
nf the nlcht and dragged the body from

It is rather rough on the settlers
along thu lino of tho Klo Grande to bo
under tho apprehension that thoy go to
bed at night as citlzona of ono country
and wako up next morning as tlio deni
zens of another, that they may bo subject
to tho laws of the United StnteH ono day,
and to those of Mexico the day alter,
all by reason of the shifting of the cur
rent of tho river that forms tho divid
ing line betweon the two republics. The
worst of it Is that nobody is, ttj blame
for it and nobody ran help It, sinco it is
duo to tho operation of natural laws
and fluvial forcos. In ono region uu
extensive tract of land, that formerly
was on our sldo, is now over on tlio
