III., are figuring on a brand yesterday to- be, at the bedside of new theory as to the death of George Farrell, ship caulker or t'auuean, whose dead body, with Its skull crush ed, was found a few days ago at the Mississippi river's edge at Belmont, Mo. It Is to the effect that Farrell was Killed In or near. Cairo, III., and that his body was either sent afloat in the "John" boat or his slayers rowed down the river to Belmont lauding a few miles below and deposited the stiffening corpse on the bank. A man whose name is kept secret by the police was in Paducah a few days ago. In telling of the mysterious death of Farrell. whom he hud known for many years, this man said: "I saw Farrell in a saloon and restaurant near the Ohio levee at Cairo Tuesday, the day before his body was found at Belmont. He was with two or three men, and they had been taking a look at the town from all appearances. Farrell and a man they called Harry Richardson, or Richants, or a name tl'at sounded like that to me, quar- roMed. They came - near fighting. Farrell pulled out a bad looking knife and wanted to fight. Jack Tar, a ship carpenter from Pa ducah, assisted by another man or two. succeeded in gettlug the knife away from George. A few more an gry words and threats passed between Farrell and the fellow Harry. Then Farrell left the place. I his was rues- day afternoon aud pot far from dark In a few minutes most or the crowd left the place. It looks queer to me how Farrell could have gotten as fa dowu the river by Wednesday morn ing by himself. Some of us fellows over at Cairo figured that Farrell had more trouble and might "have been hit on'the head while he was under the levee wall, or near the river. Then it would hav? been easy to have put his body in some fisherman's skiff and sent it adrift, ; Then again his body could have been put in a pariolned boat and row ed down the river, which, aided by the swift current, would have been easy. The skiff in which Farrell's body was found has never been identified, an. I no one around Belmont of Colum bus. Ky.. can remember of. ever hav ing seen it, ; " . It had several dollars worth of gro ceries aud provisions under the seats, and Farrell had no 'reason In the world for procuring uncooked food. Something is apt to be revealed through the work the police depart ments of aPducah and Cairo, as they are working close together on the mysterious death of the Paducahan. T.9ergeant Cowell, of the Cairo po lice, denied last night that there was any ground for such a story as that given in the foregoing. He said there were no developments here regarding the case and that, so far as known there had been no fights In which Far rell was engaged in here. T ME BADLY HANDLED JEALOUS YOUTHS OF UNON CITY GAVE THEM HOT RECEPTION AFTER AN EVENING WITH LO CAL BELLES. Traveling men In the city yesterday were busy telling each other of the experience of two well known young salesmen in I'nlnn City the latter par' of last week, when they were made to "heat it" by a bunch of Jealous youths of the city, following a pleas ant evening with a couple of local belles. The victims were Walter Ros enthal of Cincinnati and W. K. Mc Grath of Chicago, well known here. who were set upon and beaten and later made the trugets of several poor ly aimed bullets because they had in curred the wrath and aroused the jealousy of the "town boys." After their experience they left for Fulton where they freely told of the affair. While In I'nioii City, it seems that they were invited to visit two well known young g-irls of that place. I'pon their return to the Palace hotel Ros enthal and McGrath were suddenly attacked by a half dozen young men. McGrath who is an amateur pugilist of note and his companion put up a stiff fight until their assailants produced knives and pistols, whereupon they (led.

Try It Speaking of the- coal mines sur rounding the county seat, the Mur nhysboro Independent says: "In this connection it may be interesting to note that coal has been mined at Murphysboro since 1810 almost 100 years, and this was the first coal dis covered in Illinois. For many years the coal was taken out by means of tunneling the bluffs across the Big Muddy river from Murphysboro, which was not then in existence. Quite a settlement of miners and their families located in the hills on t!:e east side of the river and was known by the name of Mt. Carbon but was never Incorporated. When the county seat was changed from Brownsville, Murphysboro was start (d, and grew slowly, finally becoming larger than Mt. Carbon."
