The Cairo, Arkanta and Texas road

know, hat told mo tbe employes In charge
are most excellent gentlemen, aud expert-
need railroad men. You havo not men
tloned the tact, that the C, A. & T. road
may be of great importance to Cairo. It
travere. a country tributary to our city

to secure to ourelvc its trade U an exhi

our merchant. They should publiih to tho
poopl along tbo line ol tbc road tbo ad

they might make Cairo a great cotton and
cattle market. Hut I shrewdly tutpect that
our merchant, who aro like ponderous

.... You occasionally throw a Utile piece
of editorial brick bat at the city govern
ment. You ought te not do to. The city
government It a good one. Mayor Wood It
Impartial, and endeavors to do his duty
faithfully, and Mr. Morris Is the best looking
man in the council, ami Mr. itoblnnou is
not, but he comes In heavy ou thu handsome
l as handsome does adage of tho good wire
of tbo Vicar of Wakefield.
At the last council meeting tho mayor
uiadn some wile suggestions, among others
that three physicians should be attached to
board of health aud that a committee of the
council and citizens should be organized to
adverll'o tbe advantages of Cairo its u nun
iifucturlng city. During tbo peculiar reign
ot Mr. Obetly at mayor inch a committee
wa raised, and It did some good. It In
duced Mr, (iamblo to come U Cairo; it got
the hub factory built; it started Kiebbofl
In his furnlturo factory, and suggested a
tiling or two to box luauu'acturori, and so
forth. It may bo said, and Is said, (I'a, who
Is an old fogy, says It) that (Umblo's factory
ami the others aro very small manufacturing
potatoes; but they have done the town some
good, and everybody knows It, except a few
fellows that loaf around the saloons and al.
ways sotufvr you except whu Tom Is a
candidate. Then they don't. Another
committer could, at tuts time, with our new
railroad connections, do much good fur'tbe
city, and I therefore hope Mayor Wood's
suggestion will not bo disregarded, as good
suggestions too often are In Cairo.
'1 ho Migge stlou to Increase tho police
force met hit approval, which Is an Import
ant Item of Information. Messrs. bheehan
and Ilogan will, I believe, prove to be valu

ncss perfectly, I have been Informed ; and

tlcman is somewbut surly In his bearing, but
that may be a virtue In a policeman. 1 don't

..The county court has been In session
during tbe past week, Mr. Lynch Informed
mo this morning. This court, which oueht
to be of tho things of the past, fixed the
sherifTs salary ut 91,600, and tbc amount to
be paid to his clerks at 92,700. The court
actnd wisely and liberally In this matter. It
has not been muc'i afflicted with liberality
In the past, and as for Its wisdom I have
nothing to tay. I do not join with Sir. Talk
ltout In the declaration that all tbe wisdom
It bat manifested might be pat into the cor
ner or a rly'H eye, and mH impair Us vision
In the least degree. Mr. T. Is such a sour
mm. He is always saying dltagrtoablc
1 don't agree with you In your opinion
that the new county commltsloners cannot
qualify. 1 think you were not on your eggs
properly when you attempted to hatch out
that conclusion, llut I have not got time to
show you up, and to dlsmtti the abstruse sub
ject from my oveburdened mind.
Illds for lire pauper malntalnance and

or evolution, and the Lord and my good old

.1 regret that Mr.Munn did not succeed
In getting tho position of sergcaut-at.artnt
in the house of congress. I am a fearful

an admirer of William Allen, of Ohio, and
William Allen and Jim Allen, of Illinois. I
like Mr. Ilarmsn's unreasoning devotion to
tbe glorious party of the past ; but for all
that I wished Daniel success.
In the matter of the county commission
en I am slightly of tho opinion that the
ltadicali got thu bast ot tbe Democrats, and
muthlnkt I see In the trick the political
handiwork of the gentle by sharp Pope.
You are an unsophisticated politician, or

I pity you. C:esar had not half tho trou

The most intense granger 1 have beard
of, Is Mr. Ltnegar, He call oatt and drinks
milk for n living. And what Llnegar does
be docs well, especially In tbo way of eat

that's what everybody call him would

Art has Its attractions lor me,but I de not
protest to be au ait iu tate. The beauti
ful attracts me powerfully, especially male
beauty. A nun, bearded like the pard, Is
an object my eye feists upon. I never seu
such a man and neglect to remark to my
self that I would Ilka to havo him as a
pard" for lite. And men, not bearded, are
anything but dlssgreeablo objects to eon
template, llut I digress. Art, as I re
marked, Is attraetlve to me ; and, as a con
tequcnee, I have not failed to recognize In
Mr, II. M. ltoberts an artist of much merit.
I do uot i-ay this because 1 am a young lady
aud Mr. ltoberts Is an unmarried gentleman.
I trust I can rlso superior to such consider
ations, and Judge the work of the young ar
tist with unbiased mind, lliildci I am al
most as good as engaged, and my friend
Informs mo that ltoberts it Ju.t reaay to
cross the Jordon nf matrimony aud tee
what is In store for him "away over yonder
ou the other side," Then, as an unbiased
Judge, I pronounce him an artist of merit.
He has several pictures which entitle! him
to this distinction. Ills portrait of the la

That Is Indeed tbo proper word to use in
this connection. At a likeness It Is life-like;
as a picture it It a finished woik,
1 am Informed that Mr, Itobert will make
a public tale of aeveral of hti"gems" on or
about tho Mtb Inst., and. I hopo the lovers
of art will not neglect to avail themselves of
the splendid opportunity It will afford them

Mr. Thayer might truthfully have remarked
that the wrlter of tbe letters It a coward. He
demanded that certain Daaaaees of the

Rov. Mr. Gilbert will preach Sunday night
on "Cant In Kellglon". It is a subject on
which the reverend goulleuun may say many
good things. Cant In rellglou Is as common
as hay seed Iu the hair or politicians, and it

county, Kriday last. He left Cairo with his
team, and alter crossing tbe river fell oat or

And no doubt you havo also heard about
Abner Wolf, of Missouri. He was In Cairo
Wednesday last, with his team, and lett for

Thursday night six miles from the ferry
landing. Wolf hasn't been found yet. No-
body has heard of him. The question there
lore it: What has become of Wolf?
