The Times Democrat deserves great credit for its haiomely Illuminated illustrations of the Mardi Gras Carnl val. A pleasant and delightful entertain., ment was had at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Jonas Meyer last night by the young Israelites. Good music was furnished by the Vicksburg string hand and mirth and merriment. pre vailt d. " * Mr, J. JI. McCormickl arrived home last night from New Orleans, where he had been for a week purchasing a stock to add to his already extoLeive one. This gentlemen intends to awike the people to a reallza4n of the fact that Monroe can and will meet all competi tion as regard prices and quality of goods sold. Call and see the New Goods which are on Exhibition at S. Meyer's. Miss M. V. Staples left yesterday for New Orleans and will return by or before the first proximo. She will be acoom panted on her return by a first class milli ner as also by a first class dress maker. The lades are respectfully requested to reserve their orders until her return as it will be to their interest to do so. Judgin-, from what our esteemed contemporary, the Times of yesterday has to say, there is not doubt but that quite a large number of Shreveport ladies and gentlemen will accompany the amateurs of that city to our city to-day. The Times speaks in the most glowing terms of the natural talent and beauty of the ladles and says that they eannot fail to "insure the hearty welcome of the refined people of Mon roe" and that ,"our amateurs cannot be to highly recommended." The following dapatehb, addressed to all agents of the V., 8. & P. R. R., was received to-day by Mr. E. D. Windes, agent at this city : VICKSBURG, Miss., March 22, 1886. To all Agents : Trains No's. 3 and 4, will be discon tinued on and after April 1st. These trains werejust on with the idea of accommodating and developing local traffic and the results have proven un satisfactory, the public not having re sponded sufficiently to keep trains from being run at a losx. The neces sity for them, therefore, not txisting, the Company fLels compelled to dis continue them for the present. W. S. BELKNAP, Superintendent. One of the neatest as well as boldest at tempts at escape, was mnde at the city calaboose yesterday by a negro named Vince Burnett. It appears that after his day's work on the streets was over Satur day, he in some manner succeeded in hiding away a saw and pick ax. He set fire to the floor, burning a hole through large enough to admit the saw and then sawed a hole about 16 inches square in the floor between the cills, having accoin. plished which, he next used the pick axe cutting quite a good sized hole through the wall. At about 4 o'clock in the eve ning Mr. Jeff Spencer in company with policeman Rigsby visited the calaboose, the farmer wishing to see a negro who ls incarcerated therein, and it occurred to I Mr. Rigsby to visit the cells which he did andl succeeded in catching Burnett in the 0 act of cuttnlog his way out. HIad he had t thirty minutes more time he would have 1 succeeded.in escaping from ths "'oage" and t then indeed would the bird have flown, and it would have been no easy matter to ' have,"trapped" him again. The damage to the calaboose is no small matter as an entire new floor must be placed in about four feet or more from the wall. The Madison (La.) Times says: 'Ihe SantantaMedicine Company should spell it's name diterently. It should be Satan - ta-ta. This is rather a novel way of saying that it's a devilish concern and to locate it in its proper place. Keeps Constantly on hand Fresh Ihpplina of iJ ,.:ii ceries &c. N. P.
