One of the Biggest and Most Disastrous Visitation of Jupiter Pluvius. The downpour of rain the past week ht^s been immense, and rarely equalled in this section. It has rained almost incessantly and high waters are every where, flooding with much damage all the lowlands and streams, washing away bridges, fencing, doing heavy in jury to levees, roads and farm lands. Business has been at a standstill; very few farmers have been able to come to town, und outdoor work of all kinds has been practically imposssible. Washouts on the Memphis & Charles ton road, both east and west of Cor inth, delayed all trains over twenty four hours, no trains passing yester day. The Mobile & Ohio tracks Thurs day and Friday were submerged, but through trafic was had after a delay of a few hours. From the Mississippi Valley district, especially from Memphis, comes awful tidings of death and destruction. A dreaded break in the levee on the Ar kansas side of the stream has let loose the swollen torrent on the lowlands, and lives and property have been swept from existence. For many days guards have patrolled long sections of the levee and watched day and night for signs of weakening. Steamers have been ordered to keep away from the shore, lest their wash might crumble the wall. They have been driven off with firearms. Every precaution that ingenuity could suggest or willing hands execute lias been tried in the ef fort to hold the river in its channel. Now a break has come, and untold mischief has been wrought. be ant An Old Landmark Gone. D. R. Bradley died last Tuesday, af ter a long illness. The funeral ser vices were conducted Wednesday by Rev.

He was a genial, kind hearted young man who had many friends and no enemies. Coming to this country when quite young he clerked in the Ru bel house for several years, then went from here to Memphis where he was employed by B. Lowenstein & Bros., and be came from Memphis back here. He was always 'affable and pleasant, polite and courteous and was much be loved in this community. He was es pecially fond of children and the little ones were his fast friends. Thus he showed the kindness of heart for which Ire was noted. Thopgh lie died here many miles from his loved ones, yet many were the tear-stained eyes that bespoke the sadness of the hearts of a vast throng which followed his mor tal remains as they were carried to the train for transportation to Memphis for burial in the Jewish Cemetery. He was an Odd-Fellow and had taken two ranks in Knights of Pythias. Many will there be who will u the coming years we will keep green in onr hearts the memory of our friend Rothschilds who always had a smile I was his friend, and loved him because he was the friend of me and mine and loved us.
