Capt. Geo. Lamont, of the Libbie Con
ger, claims that yesterday's collision of
his boat with the draw of Rock Island
bridge was due wholly to the fact that the
iraw was slow in opening and that while
that was caused by the dredge boat being
n the way, it should have been kept out
if there. Be praises Pilot Ruby for his
( kill at the critical moment, which, he
fays, saved the boat from destruction. and
he further states that if the Libbie had
been large she would have been sunk
t ny way. Capt. Lamont called upon Col.
Whittemore this morning and Iwd the
facts formally before him.
Wm. Carroll, second mate on the
packet Mary Morton, was shot by a col
ored rouster while the boat was loading
t the St. Louis levee Monday evening
The negro approached Carroll while he
hid his back turned, and fired a deadly
c large into his back,without even letting
the mate know of his presence on the
bat. The negro was not employed on
the boat, but had just stepped on board
apparently for the purpose of killing the
tr. ate. After firing the shot be ran
across the wharfboat, alongside of which
tie steamer was moored, through a crowd
composed of rouslers and others, making
his way to the levee where he disap
peared. He held the revolver in his
hiind until safely through the crowd, ap
parently ready to use it on anyone who
should attempt to intercept his progress.
After getting through the crowd be
pocketed the revolver as he ran. The
cause is supposed to bj a previous diffi
culty with the mate. Carroll's wound is
thought to be mortal. The mate lived at
D lbuque, and was well known all along

A NEW EXPRESS ORDER.
The Asaerlcaa'e laapreved Method f
Traaaaalttl Mtier--It's talk
afe mad fMsaple.'
The express money order system which
has become so Dooular throughout the
country was introduced by the American
Express company. It ia now eight years
since the company inaugurated a system
of money orders so far-reaching and so
almnle. aa well aa safe, that it at once
commanded the liberal support of every
firm, corporation, publisher or individual
who took the trouble to examine into its
workings. Since its inauguration,
March 4. 1882. Ihe sale of orders has
reached the enormous sum of over f 100,
000,000. With an unprecedented growth
in the business from year to year, the
company haa kept pace with the wants of
the public by improving and simplifying
its system as occasion required, and the
latest and Improved form of the Ameri
can company ia far ahead of anything of
the kind yet Issued.
The sample received by J. F. Mc-
Kibben. the wideawake local agent of
the company, corresponds in size to that
of bank drafts and checks, and
the name of the payee, where
ptyable, and the name of remitter, now
appear on the face of the order? The
exact date of isBue is now written on the
face of the order instead of the month of
issue, which on the old form was indi
cated by separation of dates on right
hand margin. Provision has been made
for inserting the amount in the money of
foreign countries when orders are drawn
payable in Europe, thus insuring pay
ment of full valu9 of orders.
The receipt given purchasers of ord
ers to secure them against loss has been
enlarged, hence is more convenient for
filing. No'change has been made in the
marginal figures indicating exa;t value of
order. This feature of the company's
orders deserves special mention, since it
is unlike the usual form of draf ts.checks.
postoffice orders and the orders of some
of the other express companies, none of
which afford absolute protection against
raising or counterfeiting. The company
is fully protected in the use of these yery
ingenious marginal figures under letters
patent granted to M. F. Berry, its gen
eral agent in New York, who invented
the new form of order.

entered into their foolish minds that be might
lie able to undo their marriage. Ho they

So the unhappy couple leailUy assented.
and on an appointed time they went into th
church and the rector inarched them into tha
belfry. "You see these two trestles," he

This waist is designed to meet the
requirements of ladies who cannot,
comfortably, wear a stiff and rigid cor
set, while it can be worn with as much
comfort as an ordinary dress-waist, it
will give the same elegance of contour
as the heaviest boned corset in the
market, while the stays are so arranged
that they give support to the back and
spine, and in nowise interfere with the
freedom and comfort of the wearer.
Our price for this comfortable and
healthful waist is $1.00- You will no
doubt find it fully as satisfactory as
waists for which you have paid $ 1-75.
