For the pust month, the member.) of
the Taylor Literary Society, oompo-ed
ot a number of voting men ot thl city,
have been engaged lin rehearsing for
an entertainment, to be given by them at
the Atlieneum, lor the Uuellt of the
"Woman's Club and Library Associa
tion."' They have embraced every oppol unity
tlutt has presented lUelf, t- make them
selves ellleient by practice In (he various
role.s In which they will apin-ar on this
ocea-ion, and they now believe that they
arc able to oirer to the citizens a very
creditable entertainment.
The programme that has been selected
by them Is of a varied ami, as they be
lieve, an attractive character, sonst'tlng
of song, by a good (pnrlotte, character
song, two burlesque play, cntittled
the "Arrival ofT)lckens"aud "i'o-edale,"
and ! utnnlMfr ir"e!altli, uliteli Imv.i
been wdecteil in accordance witJi the
ability of those who are to enact them.
The time for the bonelit to take place
has been arranged for next Friday night,
ind the members of the society live in
hopes of greeting the friends of the Wo
man's Club on that occasion.
A .Nurr.nt Neitte.
Yesterday morning, we are told, a ne
gro woman named Corll. living some
where on Walnut street, in the upper
part of town, got up and attempted to
make a lire in the kitchen stove, to get
brcaMa.-t lor her husband, as usual.
Finding tho wood to lie damp nnd hard
to light, she went to a pantry, and taking
down a can of coal oil. .-he returned to
the stove, and supvo.lng there wa no
lire hi It. lifted one of the lids and lx-gau
pouring the oil over tho wood.
She suddenly, however, became aware
of the presence of lire somewhere In
close proximity to the stove and oil can,
by the llames which were communicated
to her clothing in an Instant after I he
oil had saturated the kindling, and which
very quickly, no doubt, would have ter
minated seriously, had he not been po-se--ed
with a great (b-al of presence of
mind. A soon as the flames had Ignited
her drt , she ran quickly to u bed room,
and -eiing a bed quilt, she wrapped It
elo-cly about her lower limbs, tho lire
having caught the bottom of her dre?,
and held it there until -he hid smothered
out the llnme-.
Thl- Is another proof of how much
precaution should bo used where coal oil
is brought into ue. It Is a danirerous
article to trlile wt Hi.

The Delta City Silver Cornet band con
gregated ill front of Mr. Charley Glllliof-
fer's house, who was lately married, on
Fouiteentli street, Friday evening, and
gave that gentleman and hi bride u very
pretty serenade.
The programme arranged by the band
boy, however, wa somewhat di'ar
ranged liy another party ol young men
and boy.-, who had, as It so happened,
made their arrangements to make things
lively for tho newly married couple by
giving them a regular old time "belling.''
When the baud boys started, the pro.
gramme they had selected consisted of ev.
eral pieces of music, compo-ed by noted
mu-iciaiis. ii ncn tneyarnveu ait ui'iruef-
tlnatlon, thuprogrannno was materially
altered and consisted of the following se-
Iccllons :
Chorus by tho heller ; with fox horn,
cow bells, horse llddle, tin pan, old wnOi
boilers, and various other instruments or
like description. This band consisted
ot about tilt v piece'. Gllinoro'ii Huston
baud Is left far In the shade when coin
pared with It.
"Silver Threads Among the Gold,"
DeltaTJTfy Cornet band.
Followed by another chorus by tho
bellers.
This was kept up until tho Delta boys
had worried through three tunes, whtn
they gave up lu despair, and then
marched down to .laeckcl'?, followed by
tho boiler, who all the while kept rat
tling their tin cnn, sawing tho horn- lid
die, pounding on the boiler, etc., until
they reached the saloon, where ull took a
friendly -mile" Mid went on ih-lr way

mice. A large and line audlcnen of school
patrons avembled In the High School
room Friday afternoon, to be entertained
by the pupils ot Miss Llvintfton's room.
The scholars under this lady's charge
have bteu noticeable all year for the ex
cellent training they have taken advan
tage of, and their earnest endeavors to
acquit themselves well In every depart
ment of their school.
The entire room was represented hi a
varied programme ot declamation, duels,
quartette, ehoni'e, original letter, etc..
ending with n beautiful! little
Fairy Operetta, which was full of
grace, pretty drcec, good acting,
complicated inarching, etc. In truth
wo were almost tempted to MU vc wc
had the real childhood's fairy-land before
it, from the glitter of Iho fairy wands,
the twinkling fret, the cllln song", and
the mass of green boughs enrlodng the
"mytlo vale."
The children all looked happy, grace
ful and at home on the stage. The par
ents have cause to congratulate them
selvo that this phao of their children',
education his not been neglected, while
tho more solid work has been rigidly at
tended to, showing a generosity on the
teacher's jwrt to work out of school
hour.
In fact, It Is no more than justice tost.ntc
that this room In- already thoroughly
completed it course of study for the
year.
Wc hope next year to hoar again from
thi pleasant clnsof pupil". I. N. C.

Thieves and burglars have not been
of any Inconvenience or trouble to the
people of Cairo for quite a while. They
have not given Hie papers of Cairo a
chance for any speculations, neither have
they lessened the fortunes of any of the
inhabitants,
Mesrs. Thrupp and Fitzgerald, who
are active and enterprling members of
the Alexander County Shooting Club,
in ii -t have felt indisposed at the match on

Two poodle dog, owned by a couple
of negrocs;hi the upper part ofturn, had

very plucky, anil fought for at least half

their owner., and Hie battl'- was declared
to bo a "draw," neither of the canines
having exhibited the least d'-slrc to quit.
A little rumpus between two negroes
yesterday afternoon, on Washington
avenue, attracted the notice of many cit
izens. One negro designated the other
negro as a "white livcred nigger,'' which
was too much ol'an Insult for the latter
to bar, and he forthwith proceeded to
cha'tiso ids offender for his unfounded
assertion by knocking him down witli a
club.
We are told Ihat an effort will be
made by the city olllcers soon, to have
the street of Cairo put In a reioctablc
