The meeting of the Temperance army
at the Reform hall Sunday afternoon was
largely uttended. The interest, which is
being manifested by the older persons in

mendable. Dr. Clark, the herbal doctor, was ad

whether he did this or even attempted it, is

We regret to hear of tin serious illness
of Judge Green. He was taken suddenly
ill, while at Metropolis attending the gath
ering of the Odd Fellows a few days ago
and has been quite ill since. He came down

to be pneumonia.

It will be remembered that a premium
was offered by the Ballard county, Ky., au
thorities, for the best plan tor the new court
house that is soon to be erected there. Nu
merous designs were sent in by the lcst
architects of St. Louis and other cities, but
the plan drawn by Mr. Win. Hendricks, our
city attorney, who is, ly the way also a
thorough architect, took the premium which
was four hundred dollars.
Mr. Blackstone, not the author of
lllackstone's commentaries, but another
Blackstone, was yesterday arrested by Of

gentleman was brought having serious ob

Mr. E. Krauth las received his back
pension, of which we made mention some
time ago, to the amount of over six thou
sand dollars and, we learn, contemplates
leaving Cuiro for New Mexico about the
IstofJuuo. His position iu Messrs. Bar
clay Bro.'s prescription drug store, on the
comer of Eighth and Washington, which
he has so long and satisfactorily filled, will
be taken by a Mr. Speck, an estimable gen
tleman. We learn from a gentleman who was
an eye witness tn the affair, that a general
foot washing was indulged iu by the Bap
tists at Ciiuble's creek iu Hazlewood pre
cinct, last Sunday. The preacher with n
towl tied before him after the manner of an
apron, washed and dried the feet of one of
tho members, who in his turn treated his
neighbor likewise who turned to his neigh
bor and went through the same perform
unco and so on through the entire assem

We are a little tardy iu announcing
the fact, but since it is a fact of not much
consequence to the thousands of the readers
of Thk llt'M.KTtN, we will be excused for
not giving publicity to it until now,
that Bob. Whinery, a night watch
man ot'Galigher's mill had one of the fingers
on his right hand smashed on Saturday
night. He was engaged Iu putting a belt
upon a pulley, which was iu motion and in
the attempt his finger was caught between
two cog wheels, smashing it badly.

Boom will not assist tho Grant boom or

Benton says, boom only for ther business of

small publication, but neat and spicy, and
being such, wo hope that Benton's boomer
may safely pass through its childhood am
youth reach a ripe old ago and live on
after his death.

A horse attached to a dray, both be

frightened near the Tenth street pump
about 1 o'clock yesterday afternoon and

-General Grant is billed to appear iu
Springfield on Tuesday next. The public
will please take notice that this appearanco
is positively far one week only, and govern
themselves accordingly. By the way, he
will, nccidently, of course, arrive tlr,.
just before the meeting of the Republican
convention. This is a surprise to him. He
really did not think that the convention
would meet during his presence there or he
would, for appearances at least, havo made
arrangements to visit the city at a different
time. Thk Bclletin regards Grant as a
great man. but by no means a popular uian.
The claim that his popularity i evidenced
oy the large crowds that flock lo see him
wherever he stops is taNacious. It is pub
lic curiosity rather than personal popularity .

-We share the opinion, of one of our

..l . i, ... . ..
e oi v. airo. it ih the duty of every cit
izen, therefore, to exert himself to keep Lis
premises in first-class condition. We know
that some of our citizens are in no need of
advice in his matter. Their self-respect,
their desire for cleanliness and the souse ot
their obligation to the community are suffi
cient to induce them to keep their yards an 1
vaults clean. There are others, however,
and we are inclined to believe that they
ompnse the larger portion of the populi.
tion.who are negligent and careless about the
comlition of their homes and who seem to
take kindly to dirt, filth
Perhaps they do not know that by their
negligence they are endangering their oo
health and that f their families and neigh
bors, or, if they do, they are indifferent
about it. Some of them, rather than spend
a smal! sum to have their vaults cleaned,
prefer to run the ri.-k of bringing an afflic
tion upon themselves aud upon the city.
here is only one way tn deal with such
people. They must be made to do what
they refuse to do voluntarily. It is the
buy of Health Officer Orr, and his five a-
sistauts, to hunt out these foul pest-spots,
ui'f to force the occupants of them to clean
them ut and in doing this it is hardly ad
visable to pursue a conciliatory or coaxing
policy since it is never . effective.
Iu any event let us havo the streets, s;ut
ters, vaults and tilth receptacles thoroughly
cleansed and purified before warm weather
sets in, and let us keep them clean after it
does set is. Our health force has com
menced its work in the right way and in
the right spirit, and we iisk all our citizens
to second its efforts, (let the disinfectants '
recommended and use them freely. Clean
out the filth and kill the bad smells and
there need be no fear about the health of
"A VOTER'S" QUERY.
Will you please inform me who is ahead
on delegates to the convention which is to
put up the next candidate for president on
the Republican side.' A Votkk.
We would like to give a satisfactory
answer to your query as to who is ahead on
delegates to the Chicago convention. We
pick up the Chicago Tribune and find that
Blaine is on the top of the ladder. We
pick up the Inter-Ocean and find that he is
at the bottom. We pick up the Journal
and find him clinging to the middle round.
We pick up the Globe-Democrat and find
Grant soaring even above tlio top of the
ladder and still going higher. We try
to strike an average when Andre Matterson
of the Times comes in and kicks down the
whole arrangement, saying that nobody is
ahead. We can solve tho 13, 15, 14 puzzle,
but must give up the conundrum which "A
