A near relative or iu rerktns, re
siding in Chicago, thus inalig ns the
woather of St, Louis iu the Inter-
U -e in : I have boon wnoro it u
ahot, mossmatee, or gontloruen
ewful hot-but tho all-firedest hot
si weather I ever hauled to woe iu
St. Louis. 1 took a coutract thero
lust summer to pick up Bun-struck
pooplo off tho streets. I went bauk
rapt in three days. Why, they laid
around thicker than dead dogs in
Chicago auring tuo poisoning eta
sou. I havo seen flauetonrs bend
boudle, and whole blocks of pave
ment twisted all out of shape. Ihe
fire plugs wore red-hot, and the
water in em boiling, lbo sun
wns'nt moro than a rod away, aud
looked as red as a furnace mouth.
The air was all in a shimmer, and
tho beat came down with such force
that you oould not rsiso your band
It was just as bad at night Not a
broatb of air, and lbs beat crowded
into the buildiogs and was packed
in the streets. I oa ooalda't got a
breath. One ni2bt I went down oo
tb levee and found a gang of nig
ger with snow shovels throwing
the beat into the river iu groU
chunk- I dropped off and swam
have voyageJ to a good many places
nevor down below with Uli.ick
but I dou't believe the ptare cxn bo
a hotter plane ttiai St. Louis.
E opia with othor uieu s wives
is boc jaia a vary oomuioo occur
rence io all prt of the country,
and wluk is worthy of notioe, the
lut-ber-alone policy aeems to govern
the cualands who are thus deser
ted. Twonty five years ago a rcn
away of this character always bad
a bijjy soqutd. A tLMorUd boa
band would not be tolerated unless
he bad first avenge, bis wrong in
blood. Things changed an ) in this
respect the difference io the moo-Is
of men is remarksble. Ruuaway
wives are severely let alone, a pun
ishment to a sensitive woman, alter
she ba waked from ber dream of
folly, far more terrible than any
violent measure posgirly coal J l.
Husbandi hare gotten over their
shooting inclination on this ac
count, and the f"t illustrates a
higher order of manhood, as well as
a surer way of punishing a crime
like this, which fling iu shame into
so many ianocen t hearts that it
needs no additi o nal act of fiendish
nee to cover it up.
