Call and, bo convinced- L Q. Brueggeman Tailoring Co. 2m Piasa at, The Bluff Line steam shovel crew operating above Armstrong's quarry, had a hair-raising experience a few days ago, that tne men will not soon forget. While digging in the bank with the powerful shovel an excavation in the ground was uncovered and on the heap ot earth that was thrown out was enough of dynamite to have wrecked the shovel and have killed every man about it. The find consisted of two sticks of dynamite wrapped carefully in cloths, with twenty fulminating caps used for exploding the sticks, a large quantity of fuse and five flue revolvers. The revolvers were of the Smith & Wesson hammer- less pattern. They were wrapped in old pockets cut from pants and around these were wound other rags to protect the weapons from the moisture iu the ground. The whole find was buried about six months ago, judging from the appearance of the contents of the bundle. It is remembered that about six months ago a quantity of dynamite was stolen from the powder house at H. Watson's quarry and the two sticks found may be some of that stolen. Oblef of Police Enhn thinks that the explosives and revolvers were concealed there by persons who intended to hold up a Bluff Line train. The Adams express car frequently carries large sums of money and no doubt the attack of the robbers was intended against it. It is supposed that^he would-be robbers were arrested or compelled to leave the country before they could carry out their design, and were not able to unearth their weapons before leaving. The place where the stuff was found would be an ideal place to bold up a train. The noise of explosions would be mistaken for blasting in the quarries and the engine could easily be disabled so as to prevent an alarm being given. ,Dne of the Bluff Line employes, Wm. Scbaefer, claims to have had a revolver stolen some time ago, and identified one of the revolvers found as his own. The find was taken charge of by the foreman of tho steam shovel and the revolvers are being held. No doubt all the stuff was stolen, but by whom is not known. PAUL BROS.7 Prescription Pharmacy.

Tne Jury Secured Last Night. —Teitlmony Up to 3 P. M. A large number ot witnesses, including several teachers, members of the Board of Education, city officials and others, went over to Edwardsville this morning, as witnesses in the case.

Teckmann. Ool. Brenholt and Charles Palmer, of Springfield, presented tfle case to the jury for the plaintiff, and J. F. McGinnts presented the city's side. The first witness was Ambrose Bibb, the plaintiff. He testified tnat the Lovejoy school bouse was a better building than the Washington school; that it was thoroughly equipped. He bad no fault to find with the teachers. His objections were that the Lovejoy school was not convenient; it being four blocks farther away than Washington school. On cross examination he stated thai if his children were qualified, he would have no objection to sending them to the High School, although the distance was greater. Ambrose Bibb, son ot plaintiff, aged 10 oears, was the next witness, but not knowing the nature of an oath he was withdrawn.

The weather man said that a few drops of rain and a high wind in the morning would prepare the way for a higher wind and heavier rain before night, growing into a cold hurricane and snow before midnight. Strange to relate the weather stuck to its schedule as mapped out by the weather men, and at 6 o'clock Tuesday morning the early riser found a great change. The balmy winds of early Monday were turned into the cold, cutting blasts from old Boreas' Ice box. Snow was flying through the air and the boys were bunting up their sleds and skates in preparation for some of the winter's fun.
