rests on tho crown of tho hill, and Is ono

Alexander county is too much like linked

with this part of the county, and
nearly all the country precincts are
inclined to occasionally go back on Cairo,
when any project is suggested forhor wel

coupled with our sprightly Mound City
suburb, into Pulaski county, while tho bal
ance of Alexander county, relieved of our
hateful presence, could establish the
county seat at Thebes, at of old, and at
leisure plod along paying tbe interest on
tbo Cairo and Vlncennes and Cairo and
St. Louis railroad bonds with as much

court-bouse at Thebes and tbe five acres

they aro not now, of consid

He adds that the lately developed iron
mines near Tbebes, and the assured fact
that the bridgeof theSoutborn Pacific rail-
road will cross the Mississippi at that

Dear Sir. I havo noticed In my ob

thoro is a cortaln class of Individuals who

doubly so for tho community In which
thoy move, hit upon tho wrong ono. Now
thero is not, perhaps, ono in Cairo who
honors genius moro than I; and let me

In tho bud." I liko to dovolop tho germs
ot talent wherover found, as woll In others
as In myself; but, by all the spirits that
bavo ovor crossed tho Styx, and now dwell
in tho land of Erebus, I cannot I will
not suffor myself lo be tortured by tho
affectation of genius. Nature has be
stowod upon no man an universal genius.

ho was a failure, and now, with tho might
of our ability, protest against his existence
as a singer. Wo have the patience of any
ordinary mortal, but it Is exhausted; it
has coased to be a virtue. We thought
wo could bear up against any decree of
faith. Wo've lived in tho midst of disease;
