The election held at the eleventh treet
school houe yete. day, for the purpoe
of electing two member of the Hoard of
Education for the next term, contrary
to all o.eetatlous wa, a very lively
eonte-t. Cp till ye-terday mjirnliig It
wa generally understood Unit only two
gentlemen, Mers. W. P. Halllday and
F. Kor.-tneyer, would enter the lleld for
the otllce, but, when tlie poll, Were open
ed, tlie people were somewhat -urpri-ed
to learn that .Mcr. dames Carroll and
II. Kluge. and nlo Mr. Metcalf and Mr.
Walter, had al-o -Ignllled their Intention
to challenge the right of the former gen
tlemen to tlie place. Tho voting
throughout the day wits very lively. At
1 2 o'clock, live hundred votes had been
cat ; at 2 o'clock, seven hundred ; and at
3 o'clock, eight hundred and twenty-ilvo
tickets had pae5 Into tho ballot-box.
In comparing this with the entire vote
ea-t for tlie ..itno olllceat the last election,
which was but nlnety-fotir vote, it will
be readily eovn that the excitement ran
high. The negroes were In a high state
of mind from tho opening of tho poll,
until they were eloed, and we venture
to say that nearly tho whole vote east by
them yesterday was for Messr.s. Halllday
nud Korsmeyer. The oilier candidates
worked like Turks also, and seemed con
lldent that they would be rewarded for
their labor by being installed iu tho shoes
of Mesi. Kor.-moycrand Halllday, but
they were doomeiLto disappointment, as
they learned to their sorrow when tho
result of tluyioritcst had been announced.

there has not been a larger audience as
H'tnbled within It., wall, since its erection.
It I- true that the entertainment wa pro
longed, hut to any ono who will hut
give tho matter a second thought, It will
bo very plain that had it been concluded
nt any point but tlio one chosen by Prof
Alvord, dissatisfaction would urely
have been created H the minds of many,
which could not have failed to bring with
it hard feeling.
Tho greeting hong, a, Ming by the
scholars of tho high school, with Miss
.I0M0 PhlllU presiding at tho piano, was
good. The fault so common among
young folks wo a'ferto tlteexttctnolook
of solemnity when before an audience
was not to be encountered on tills occa
slon, aud was noted by all. Tho manner
of tho young ladles and gentlemen, was
perfectly easy, nnd this coupled
with tho good tlnio kept by
them, made the piece a success.

Mrs. Alvord, then ga70 tho piece en
titled "America and Washington," iu a
way not often equaled by a young man of
ills age, nnd ho retired amid tho npplauso
of his hearers, followed by n pretty
pleco of niiislo called tlio "Mountain
Song," by tho scholars, nnd tho curtain
descended upon tho groupo to ho ng.'iln
drawn up to reveal tho cotmteuriuco of
Chatilo Johnson, who gavo the audience
a German recitation Iu linostylo. Tho
scholars then sung a patrfotlo German
song, which was very pvctty, but which
we dnro say wnsltimlciinood by but few-
idlzabctn Smith s effort on "American
Literature" was very good and was his
Miss Allle Lansdcn then took her scat
at the piano, and began a march, to
which tho little children of Miss Roger's
room kept time Willi the precision of
old soldiers, winding here aud there, as
suming a different position with each
command given by their wor
thy teacher, lu perfect order. So
well did they perform their part that they
were the admired of all admirer, nml
drew forth the most flattering words of
praimrrom all, upon the deserving head
of MI? Ilogers.
"Hoys' Itlghts," by little Wood Kitten
houc, nn urchin six years of age, who
Is also under the carcof Mls";itogcrs, was
truly excellent. Tho expression upon
the little youngter's face, as he gave
his opinion in regard to the subject, was
very amusing and created much merri
ment among Ids hearers.
Harry Greeley's rendition of the "Hat
lie of the Ivry," by Macnuley, was very
good, and was well-received by the audi
ence. Little .Vellle Farr, 11 Utile cherub only
a few years of age, a pupil of Miss Wal-
hrlOge, then took her Maud upon the.
stage, and ricited "Mrs. Skinner" In a
manner mo-t creditable to hermlf and
"The .Vatlon," by twelve young la-
tiles of tho high school was elo.ed
with "Hail Columbia," lu which the
young ladies all look part, and marched
from the stage timid loud applaite.
Miss Katie AUord, a pupil of tho High
School, and a deserving one. too, then
made her appearance, and recited Mrs.
Stevenson'. poem, entitled "The PolUli
Hoy. Ml- Katie wearc told, had but one
day and a half iu which to prepare her-
seir, and gate her own Idea
of the manner In which the piece
-liould be rendered, but w e are pleased to
say, that It has seldom been the lot of a
Cairo audience to listen to n more excell
ent ell'ort. Her exit front the stage was
tn ule witli deafening applause.
Willie Halllday, Hubert Woodward aud
Egbert Smith played " Trick in a Har
lerShop" very welt. Little Halllday
would make a very good Irish comedian.
Dal-y Hiillid.iy, ten year old, a pupil
under the tutorship of Ml, Nannie Mc
Kec, recited very nicely a piece entitled
"Water." She wa perfectly at home
upon the boards, and did her part with
tlie grace of an actre5 of much greater
Edward Heley then gave "Warren's
Own.'" to the perfect satisfaction of the
Moore's beautiful poem of "Paradise
and Peri," was then given by MUses
Cora Slratton, Kate Williams, Lizzie
Humboldt and Ellle Close, each reciting
In turn one verse, and all proving clearly
to the spectator that they had the correct
Idea of the author.
Willie Kornieyer then gave n decla
mation entitled " The Death of Lconlda"
in good style.
-I'r"'K " song, uy Laura v albrldge,
was very pretty. The. child Is but six
year old, and has a .,wet childish voice,
uiueii was admired by all.
Willie Whliaker' rendition of the
"Ship on Fire," for a boy eicTcn years
old, was excellent, nnd under the care of
ids teacher. Ml, lluth McHride, he will
become quite an orator.
A very Interesting and truly line red
tatlon, and one we take prido in saying
which was pronounced by the entire au
dience to be really wonderful, taking in
consideration the age ot the speaker, who
is but six year- old, was that of little
Louis Fo, "IlienzaV Addre-." The
piece i an unusually long ono for ,0
young a boy to undertake, but ho went
through with It without faulterlng, hi
gesture aud pronunciation being perfect,
1 he -pectacle talrlv brought down tiie
house when he had elo-ed. This was
followed by a parody on I.oul,' par. by
four little girl-, which had been pre
pared by their teacher, Mls Living-tone,
which was full ol hits that con
vul-ed the throng in front.
May Harnian, of the High School, did
very well in her recitation of the "Gam
bler's Wile," which wa well received.
Harry Smith, a little boy under the
charge of MUs Powers, gave "Halning
Days." iu good style.
Willie llalliday's "Independence Hill"
was good and received much npplauc.
Edith Obcrly then read nn original
compo-itlon on "Housekeeping," which
was well received.
Misses Annie Alvord and Lulu Pace,
two young mtt-kians of the
high school, then gave the audience an
example of their ability, cxeetitlnglu lino
style a duet upon the piano, entitled
Puck, which was very pretty.
A German recitation by Mis Laura
Itennlo was next. Thu powers of the
young lady as tin apt German scholar
cannot bo dUputcd, as lio proved by this
effort, nnd Will Smith's "Envoys of
Homo" wa beyond reproach. Hoth
were heartily applauded.
Then came little Carrio Morris, bare
footed, with dishevelled hair and tattered
garments, and recited "Nobody's Child."
Tho pathetic tone of volco ami tho ges
tures of the little girl wero touching In.
tho extreme, aud would have, done credit
to a person much moro advanced In years.
So much did tlio audience appreciate tho
excellence of Carrie's eflort, they could
not rest until they had brought her out
upon tho stage a second time, with yells
and stamping of feet. Her appearance
silenced them, when she made a neat lit
tle bow and retired.
Duff Green appeared aud crowned
himself with laurels, by n declamation.
"itobcrt l.mmet," by George Clark,
who Is surely one of tho rising boys
of Cairo, gave tlio audience another op
portunity to show their appreciation of
good speaking, which they did. and tho
young orator retired amid the din.
A number of tho scholars of tho High j
School presented a pleco entitled 1
"Wirto," Mlsi Ktta Farr lu the rolo of '
"Miriam," and Will Smith ns tho"Hrlde-,
groom," The net wns very well done,
add was applauded loudly.
AVlllIo Wright's recitation of "Mnko
all gave in.
A delegation o. ,
McKec's room then nx.
tlfnl poems from the works o.
Thomas Moore, Itobcrt Hums
great German poet, Schiller,
which were pleasing and Interesting
to the audience.
"Washington's Dream of Liberty," a
tableau, by a number of scholar irom
tho various departments, was pre
sented, nnd was very acceptable.
"Little Mable," by Minnie Halllday,
was very neatly enacted by that llttlo
Mis? Phlllls' little wards then bad a
march about the stage, and sang "Yan
kee Doodle" very nicely.
Edward Hcelcy once more came for
ward, and his recitation entitled "Sun
day Hccdier" was what.the boys would
The "lllver Town Woman's Associa
tion" then had a meeting, Mls Etta
Fo, At. President, and the other
young ladies and gentlemen, Including
Will Smith as "Gtitavus" and .Miss Ella
Armstrong a his alllanecd, were all ex
cellent. The play occasioned considera
ble merriment and elicited loud np
plause. "The Granger.," by tlio high school
boys was n Very correct representation.
The mo-t notable acting In this piece was
that of George Clark as "Holln," the IrMi
potato grower, and young Kendall, as
president of the "Granger's Association,"
though all wero very good.
The exhibition was brought ton close
by the preentatlon of "Widow Hcdott,"
witli Mis Kate Alvord as "Widow Hc
dott." Jc.c Phlllls as ".Melissa," Will
Smith as "Mr. Crowe," and John Wood
a "Mr. Kler." The other
meinlxT.s nil plaved their parts
satisfactorily, making the play very
Prof, and .Mr.. Ahord deserve credit
for tho manner lu which thev labored
with the pupils and tlie success which at
tended their efforts.
