On last Friday evening John Thompson, who is night operator at the M & O Railroad, and Waldo Meador of this paper, were out for a ride on a tandem. When about halfway down the National Cemetery hill the wheel was running so fast that Mr. Thompson lost a "pedal", consequently both were thrown off and the tandem’s front wheel and brake was demolished. Mr. Thompson was hurt, but fortunately not severely.

Mr. E.J. Green, a prominent merchant of Rienzi, goes to St. Louis every year to buy goods. Says Allen, West and Company handed him a message direct from President Cleveland stating he had recalled Consul-General Fitzbugh Lee from Havana and selected Capt. Thad Beall to take his place. As soon as Mr. Green handed the dispatch to your valuable correspondent, he boarded the train for Booneville, having then procurred a turnout he hastened fifteen miles out in the western portion of Prentiss County to where the Captain lives. When we approached the subject the Captain smiled and said, he was not all surprised at receiving this appointment, in fact, he had been looking for something of this nature for several weeks; really ever since Jordan Boone, counsel for Sanguilly, had petitioned for a withdrawal of the Sanguilly appeal.
