W have received a communication, in

bout the colored ichooli of thli city. It

Williams and Mn. lluleU. We cannot
give our correipondent any information
on this subject, and refer him to Prof. Al

we know Prot. Talford ii one of the best

"A Truth Skekkr," who is oither
ashamed to give ui bis name or is bogus

in Tin Bullktin a statoment of tbe

would liko to accommodato bitn ; but ho
being nameless and as windy as a gossip
ping woman without her ractness, we uro
constrained to not let tho communication
shine upon the world through tboso col
umns. The religious controversialist ii,
tbe world over, a bore; and in Cairo,
has become a weariness and vexation of
tbe ipirit. If we were to glvo him rein
be would run away with ui and all our
business. If we wero not, occasionally, to
ay to him : "Please oxcusa us," bo would
fill our paper day after day with plati
tudes about "tho imposslblo God of the
Bible," the improbability of tbo Jonah,
tbe deluge, the conception and other
scriptural narrattvos; or, on tho othor
hand, with commonplaces, about the duly
of all people to believe In original sin, em
braco the Lord and get out of tho way of
tbe lake tbat burnt with fire and brim
stone. Occasionally a short epistlu on ro
ligious subjects is a treat to Tuk UrtLK
T1K, but lengthy communication! like tbat
of "A Truth Seeker" now lying beforo us,
barrow up our soul and wculd, if wo
could boast them, make our muttod and
uncombed locks to part, and each particu
lar bair to stand on end liko quills upon
the fretful porcupine.
Tiling are many of our business mon
who havo their lob printing done in
other cities, under tbe mistaken beliet
tbat tbev can have it done cheaper and
better than at borne. Even tbo "county
court" (tbat was) gave tbo preference to
Chicago printors, and we were compillcd
to work cheaper than they and do a gocd
deal ot persuading to boot, to obtain any
of that work. And tbe city, too, the
council proceeding! of which wo publish
for one dollar a month in scrip which we
cannot ell, compels us to enter into com
petlon with St. Louis and Cincinnati
printers, to whom the city -utboritiei in
some myiterloui way, can pay cash, for the
little morsel of job printing it las to dls
pense. Tbii Is a fact which probably fills
the public-spirited breast of Mr. bummer
well and the bosom of his push-ahead
friind Mr. Wilson with pleasure, and
constrains us to occasionally uso a word
almost profane. It may be all right,
too; but we do Ullevo that

Mrs. Klrckbaumgot n now hired girl, who
saw tbe hat on tbo chair in tbe diningroom,
and imagining it to bo a patent colander
of somo new kind removed it to tho kitchen
Wbon Mrs. Krlckbaum camo down stairs
at noon to see how dinner was getting on
sbH found tbe girl strsining the boiled cab
bage through the sheet iron ventilator in
Krickbaum's high hat, and swearing in
tbo Uabybubdeon dialect because the holes
wero io big and tbo colnndor so limber.
That night whon Krlckbaum wanted to
start for tbo loduo ho began to bunt for
hii hat, while Mrs, Krlckbaum sat still
and trembled. Hut when be became ex
asperated and commenced to pick up tho
chairs and jutn them down bard sons to
relievo his feelings she began to cry, aod
revealed tho whole horrible truth to him.
It may havo been dono In quickor time,
but wo doubt it. Wo say that thoro may
have beon In former ages somo hired girl
who pocked her trunk and polled down
stairs, and was bustled into tho street
quickor than Mrs. Krickbaum's hired
girl when KIrckbaum began to expostu
late with hor, but tbo fact has not boon
proved. Ho wears an unporforated hat
now, nnd will probably bo entlrolybsld by
New Yosr's Day.
