Cairo, Docombor f, 1873.
Mn. Ennou Bulletin : I bavo boon
reading Jane Ann's locals In yester
day's Bulletin, and the part which In
terested mo tho moil was Jane's call on
tho Cairo ladici to set tho ball of charity
rolling, in behalf of our poor, or theso
who may be thrown out ol employment
this winter and tho comming spring. It
has already been suggested by tbe 'Sun'
to have a course of home lectures, but can.
not the ladies do something 7 Cannot the'
ltdies of tbodifferent churches band to-'
gethor (ortbose of evory church separ
ately) and organize a society or locicttci
to afford roltof to any who are In need and
deserving. Mow Mr. Editor I havo beon
thinking of this mattor deoply. It has
been said and I know it ii a fact, that
wbon we gUo anything, or do a good act,
and make a sacrifice to do it, wo aro that
much more blcsaod. I thoreforo tneroly
suggest one plan whereby wo might do
good, and if it does not raeot with tbo
views of tho lhdies, I bono something else
will bo set it motion in regard to this
matter. Our different churches havo very
pleasant and entertaining sociables for all
who may wish to participate in them,
but one feature wo could
dlsponse with in favor of
the poor, and that u the suppers.
All who attend those sociable are bls
with enough to supply them with three
gvod meals day and do not really need the
fourth. But thore are many, very many,
(and tboro will bo more before spring)
who do not have moro than one meal a
day on an average. Why not call in
tboio hungry one to that fourth meal, or
take the money these suppers would cost
and uie it as a fund to givo employment
or relief to those who are too delicate to
aik for alms? Cbriot has commanded ui
that when we make a feast or a supper,
not to call in our rich friendi and neigh
bors lost they recompense by asking In re
turn. But when thou makest a feast, call
tho poor, tho maimed, the lame, the blind.

Tc tbo Editor of Tub Bulletin :
- The articlo by "Jano Ann" this morn
ing) created a ripple of oxcltoment in this
In tbo first place, Mr. Editor, you
wero uncomplimentary in your bead
line. Instead of "A Jumble Of Idle
Talk on Many Subjects," you should have
aid "Friendly gossip by one of the
A "Jane Ann" hai flown into print,
be i a legitimate object of criticism, and
I thought I would let fly my little arrow
to 'relieve my mind without delay.
"Jano Ann" was too prolix. She has
talked about everybody end everything
At once. Showai "long-winded." Wby
ia "Jano Ann" like Cairo? Because ibo
bai ipread herself all 'round.
I mutt object, humbly, to her choice of
language. Such expressions aa "difficult
to start and h 1 to slop" 'not on your
eggi properly when you attempted to
hatch out that conclusion," aro not pleas
ant to tho ear. O, it offends me to tho
oul to bear them coming from a .young
lady. It is bad enough from a man, but
from one of the fair sox, 'tis too much for
people's delicacy of feoling. t
"Jane Ann" should lend to (Japt.
Jai. Johnson a lilt of the routo eho
wlshoi to travol, and if ha don't get all
tbe passes the needs ho ought to be sent
to fight the Spaniards.
"Jano Ann" I think ii capablo of pun
gent, pithy article on many lubjocti
literary pudding with many plum in
them. I would gently suggest the follow
ing: "lion, John II. Oborly, our noit
congressman." A Mr. Oberly is pretty
sure of that office, I would advise "Jane
Ann" to tako time by tbe forelock, so ai
tobe'iureof some of tho" present, and
privilege showered upon the publio
by gentleme'u holding that mjghty
office. For instance their ipeeebe in tbe
House, Patent Office reports, the) dis
tinguished honor of acquaintance with an
M. O, etc. "Jane Ann" ii no doubt' fully
posted on tbe subject, as the ii on all oth
ers, and I am confident that the publio
wish to bear from her about tbo tamo.
