A common looking old milch cow, that looked no different from any otlior old cow, distinguished herself this morning by swimming the river from the Eagle Packet OO.'B wharf boat to the other shore. She was being driven on the boat by the deck hands whose hnrry to have the old creature stowed away in the stock pens excited the cow and she made a mad dash for liberty. She rushed straight for one of her tormentors and he jumped aside, fine taking a leap into the river from the unguarded lower deck. Tho water must have been fearfully cold but old Sukey did not mind it a bit. She bravely struck ont for Missouri and landed on Bayless Island below tbe bridge. The Spread Eagle landed for her and with all her wild western spirit gone she quietly submitted to being taken on the boat and locked up in the pen. The Alton. The rumors of the sale to the Pittsburg, Kansas City & Gulf, and the consolidation of the Alton with several lines, are still rife. It is more than likely that the road will change bands by January 1, either by sale or consolidation, giving a through east and west line. The Alton's business has been circumscribed for many years. In its territory new competi; tors have sprung up, which have to a greater or Jess degree curtailed its earning powers. The proposition now is to gain fresh territory, and having connections leading from Eastern At-' lantic seaports through the central west to the southwest. PIERSON & D. G Hard Spring Wheat.

The river will be closed in a few days should the cold weather continue. The weather is so cold that ice will be floating in the river In a few days. Passenger business bai dropped off completely, while freight business is atill very good. The mighty Mississippi has gone on another tear. Her action now is as unaccountable ae though she was a little mountain stream and not the staid old father of waters who has been so conservative in its practice of following customs and precedents. It began to rise Thursday night and rose until Friday morning when it came to a stand. Then it began to rise again last night and still is coming up. The total rise since the _cold weather set iu is 1 2 feet, but the last 12 hours tbe rise has been slow and is probably at an end. A rise in the river during a cold snap is something unusual and is probably due to a sudden rise in the Illinois. Above Orafton the Mississippi is falling. Trading Stamps.
