There is not much doubt of the

THE MISSISSIPPI FLOOD.
The Water Still Rising A Disastrous
New Orleans, La., March 12 The
Times-Democrat's Helena, Ark., special
says: The river hin crawled up two
inches during ths last twenty-four
hours and it now marks forty-three
feet and rive inches on the guage. Tbe
water is now four feet tix inches below
high water. The rise during the pres
ent week will be gradual. Beginning
next week ic will be more rapid, and
the highest water will reach here Sun
New Orleans, March 12 The Pic
ayune's Greenville, Miss., special says
the river stood here last evening forty
seven and a half feet, and rising Re
ports from the levees along the Missis
sippi side, up to 8 p. m . tay the princi
pal levees were etui in food shape, but
the btrain against them is increasing
every hour. Continuous accompanied
by heavy winds prevailed, und some
disaster seemed doe ifcn probable before
morning. It had been raining very
bard since 2 o'clock, and it was still
coming down in torrents with no indi
cations of any change soon.
All railroads in tbe vicinity of Fort
Smith are suffering from serious wash
out! or lost bridges, and trains are
abaadoned temporarily. At Arkansas
City, on the Mississippi, water from
the fcappmgton nook crevasse has in
undated tbe rear part of the town, and
lands in the back country are being
flo ded. It is not thought, ho 'ever.
that any great damage will result from
the break, as bayous and interior
streams aie capable of carrying the
water away rapidly. All tbe available
boats of the government fleet have been
put into levee service.
A report prevailed that the levee at
Alsatia, Li , twenty miles Bouth of
Lake Providence, had broken, but this
has not been verified.
Balville, Ark., March 12. White
river rose eighteen feet here yesterday,
and is now rising a foot an hour.
St. Louis, March 12. Flood news
from various points along the Missis
sippi river and other streams this morn
ing is that the White and Black rivers
in Arkansas are on the rampage. Both
are out of their banks and overflowing
the country on each side for miles.
Heavy rams have fallen and continue
to fall along these streams, and a gene
ral inundation is looked for. The Black
is a tributary of the White, and the
White empties into the Arkansas just
above tbe point where the latter pours
its flood into the Mississippi. At Fort
Smith, on tbe Arkansas, a rise of over
eighteen feet took place in twenty-four
hours, and at last accounts the swell
was proceeding at a rapid rate. This
great rise, added to the minor floods
pouring out of all the small tributaries,
will greatly add to tbe volume of water
in tbe Mississippi below the mouth of
the Arkansas, and increase tbe peril of
the lower country.

one of tbe wealthiest men in Pennsyl

the rate of $100 per aore, as was pro

meeting on Tuesday, the terms having
been agreed to by Congressman Rey
burn through his agent. Mr. R. M.
Evans, who has been here several days
negotiating for the purchase of the
property, he having paid a recent visit
to tbe island. Tbe grounds .abound in
all kinds of wild game, English snipe,
quail, bear, and various wild animals.
Toe "fishing grounds afforded are unsur
passed and .are equal to any along Al
bemarle Sound. There also abound on
the island myriads of wild geese, wild'
duck and swans. Congressman Rey
burn's object in purchasing the island
is to establish there handsome winter
quarters for himself and friends which
they will occupy while on hunting ex
peditions on the island. He will apply
to the Legislature for a charter similar
to those granted to the sporting clubs
on Currituck Sound. Congressman
Reyburn has already purchased a hand

After an Absence ol Nearly Thirty
Oshkosh, Wis., March 10 Fritz Ja
bush walked into the house of his rsla
ivee in this city yesterday afternoon,
after an absence of nearly thirty years.
The story he told was a most romantio
one, for he had long been mourned as
dead. In 1862 Mr. Jabusch enlisted to
the army and went to the front. His
relatives heard from him regularly
until in the summer of 1863, when his
letters ceased after a battle in which
bis regiment had been engaged. His
parents, of course, supposed him dead.
He now states that be was left for
dead on the battlefield, was found by
rebel troops, placed in a hospital, and
when be recovered was imprisoned at
Libby prison. Here he remained over
a year until exchanged, and be found
himself on the Atlantic coast without
money and hundreds of miles from
home. He shipped on board a mer
chantman for the East Indies as a corn-
man seaman, and has followed tbe sea
ever since. He has acquired a com
petency, and decided to settle down in
his old home.

James Hill. Atlanta, Ga., writes
"Mr two sons were afflioted with blood
poison, which dootors said was heredi
tary. They both broke out in sores and
eruDtions which B. B. B. promptly con
trolled and finally oured completely."
Mrs. S. M. Williams, Sandy, Texas,

poison forced me to have my leg ampu
tated, and On tbe stump there came a
large ulcer, which grew worse every
day and doctors gave me up to die. I
only weighed 120 pounds when I began
to take B. B. B.. and 12 bottles increased
my weight to 180 pounds and made me
sound and well. I never knew what
good health was before." -

Death of Ex-Congressman Taulbec. ;
Those wlo have kept up with the
Washington news have seen accounts
of the shooting of W. P. Taulbee. a
representative from the tenth Kentucky
district in the 49 and 50th Congress, by j
Charles E Kincaid, the Washington !
correspondent of the Louisville Timos, 1
in the House wing of the Capitol, on
tbe afternoon of February 23. Since
the shooting Taulbee has been in a
critical condition, and on Tuesday i
mording died. A brief recital of the !
causes which led to the tragedy is as j
follows: About two years ago, while
Taulbee was a member of Congress,
Kincaid telegraphed to bis paper re-1
ports which were damaging to the !
character of Taulbee' The reports, I
however, appeared in Washington i
papers before tby were sent to
tne Louisville Times. Since the
reports appeared in the Times, there
has been serious antagonism between
Taulbee and Kincaid. Kincaid bad
avoided Taulbee, hut casually they met
on the day of the shooting. The stories
of the shooting differ in one important
particular. Kincaid and Taulbee had
had an encounter some time prior to
tbe shooting in the corridor adjoining
tbe ball of tbe House of Representatives
on the east. It was said juet after the
shooting took place that Kincaid bad
armed himself after bis first encounter
with Taulbee, and seeing him go down
the stairs that led to the basement, bad
tun aiter him. called to him, and. as he
turned, shot him in the face. Kincaid
claims that he armed himself in fear oi
danger from a further- encounter with
Taulbee; that Taulbee bad warned him
to arm himself, and that Taulbee in
sulted and attacked him on tbeir sec
ond encounter, rendering in his opin
ion resort to the pistol a necessitv. The
theory of self-defence will be set up bv
Kincaid s lawyer. As soon as the news
of Taulbee 'a death reached police head
quarters, an officer was sent to Kin
caid's room. He was awakened, and
after be had dressed, was taken to the
police station, where he now is.
A Woman in White Walks for a
in Her Sleep.
New York.' March 10. Policeman
John Stuart, of the Thirteenth street
squad, saw an apparition this morning.
An hour before daybreak he saw stand
ing at tbe ladies' entrance to the Fifth
Avenue Hotel tbe ta-il figure of a woman
attired in a white night-gown, with
ruffles, and a wrapper thrown loosely
over it. Tbe woman had on hat and
shoes, and carried in one hand a riding
trip, just as the omoer swung bis
The policeman spoke: "What are

shoulder. At the voice and touch the
woman gave a sudden start and woke
np. Then with a shriek she dropped at
the polioeman's feet. Seeing herself
suddenly revealed in the role of a sleep
walker had almost undone her.
When she recovered enough to walk
the policeman took her down to Captain
Keilly's station house, where she was
fitted out with a dress and proper
clothing to keep her warm. She was
benumbed with cold.
To the tergeaat she said that she was
May Case, an opera singer, and lived at
21 Great Jones street. The last she re
membered was going to bed and to
sleep in her own room.
In the early morning hours she had
arisen, put on her hat and shoes, and
gone up Broadway probably all the
way to Madison Square, without know
ing what she was doing and without
meeting on her whole route a polioe
man to wake her up. Her route lay
through two precincts, the Fifteenth
and Nineteenth, and she went over the
posts of at least a dozen or fifteen pat
rolmen, whom she failed to encounter,
unless, indeed, she frightened them
from her path. The sergeant sent her
