"Just, listen," says the Columbus, O.,

mand that the pockets of labor shall be
filched to pile up $130,000,000 annually in
excess oi the needs of government. Poor
old decrepit and foolish organs! "

yesterday moniug totally destroyed the

None ot the fixtures of the former building
were ssved. Bath buildings were of frame.
The cause of the fire was a lamp explosion.
The board of county commissioners
met at the court house yesterday and dis
posed of some business for the people of
the county. Probably the most important
business was the reception and opening
of bids for filling the court bouse yard.
The bid of Mr. Fritz Sarbian, at 86c. per
oubic yard, was accepted. The other busi
ness wss of a dull, routine nature.

The forrests on the Missouri and Ken
tucky shores which have for some time
been gradually aheding their beautiful
Dolly Varden fall apparel and were rapidly
approaching a state of utter nakedness,
were no less pleased at the little whiff of
winter which decked them meagrely with
toe naDiunents oi winter tnan were our
merchants generally, who experienced
sudden little impetus in all branches of
business. The abundant crops are all bar
vested now; the people generally are happy
in this glorious holiday time, happy even In
their perplexities of a general hunt for suit
able Christmis gifts; an1 all things consid
ered the popular goose may be said to da
pend at a most cheering altitude.
A defective flue, that commonest
and least excusable of all defective things
about a bouse, was the cause of yesterday
morning s little blaze in the roof of Mr
Hehl's shoe shop on Ohio levee. Fortu
nstely the fire was discovered before it bad
made much headway. Had it gotten
good start it is probable that a great fire
would have resulted fro-j it, for the wind
was blowing at an unusual rate and frame
buildings were thick in the neighborhood.
The river is falling raoidly at St. Louia
nine inches during the twenty-four hours
ending last evening marknig but eight feet
five inches on the gauge. The thermometer
was only 19 above zero and was low all the
way up along the Mississippi and Missouri
rivers. Ibese conditions were favorable to
an early close of navigation at St. Louis,
which, for Cairo, would be a very desirable
consumation; tor Cairo would then rise to
the importance of being the head of navi
gation on the great rivers.
Count Alfred, eldest son of Prince
Frederick, of Salm, ran away from home in
1832, because ot opposition to bis marriage
with a girl of humble birth. Recently a
German, who bad been member of the
young Count's regiment recognized him aa
fellow-laborer on the Illinois Central rail
road. Writing of his discovery to the
Prince, his letter was the first intimation
the family bad received of the young
Alfred'a whereabouts. Opposition to the
match has been withdrawn, and the prodi
gal will return borne.
The Holiday announcement of reduced
rates by the Wabash road is made upon
one of those artistic til's, for which the
Wahaah management has gained a nation
al reputation. In the centre of the bill,
within a belt of sleigh bells, is the figure of
a little girl muffled and wrapped in furs,
with a wistful, expectant expression In ter
round little face; while in the back ground
above, appears the dark blue sky dotted
with stars and a crescent moon, and below,
to the right, the snow covered roof of a
house and chimney, and to the left, Old
Santa Claus sitting in bis sleigh drawn by
two panting elks, seemingly undecided
whether to stop and go down the chimney or
pass on. Ihe whole is in colors attractive,
yet subdued to suit the season of yesr from
which the scene is taken. Above and below
this suggestive representation is the reading
matter of so much importance to those who
my wish to take a trip during the holidays,
telling about a reduction of ratea to one and
one third fare to all points within a radinus
of one hundred and fifty miles of Cairo.
Mrs. 8. Williamson's Bazaar is now

something nice and attractive as well as
serviceable for a present for the friends or
little ones at home who, God bless them,
are the one point which their hearts point
to and makes this world bnght and happy.

The tobacco men of this city and
everywhere in the country, in fact look
forward with much anxiety to an act by
the present partially Democratic congress
to correct one of the evidently willful blun
ders of omission of the previous Republican
congress: an act appropriating money to
pay the rebate on tobacco which dealers
held on May 1st when the reduction of tax
went into effuct. 1'he amount due dealers
here will run into the thousands. Dealers
and manufacturers were instructed to make
out their claims forthwith for the purpose
of having them forwarded to the fifth audi
tor. The whole number of claims present
ed, according to instruction, were 46,850,
amounting to 1572,591,307. The number
of claims allowed and forwarded to the
fifth auditor was 43,729. Sixty-six claims
were rejected, and 8,074 were returned for
amendment. The amount of claims allow
ed and forwarded to the fifth author was
13,524,167.23. The amount rejected was
$178,748, and the amount returned for
amendment was $199,950.27. The manu
facturers' claims amounted to $187,756.94,
while those of the dealers amounted to $8
588,337.03. The claims of manufacturers
have all been allowed and in moat cases
have long since been settled by the claim
ants taking out the amqunt of rebate in
stamps of the new issue, but out ft single
claim of doalers haa been paid, and it is not
likely that any will be, unless the present
congress sees fit to make so appropriation
to that purpose.
