It will lie .'een by an advertisement
published In this l"tte of the lJft.Li-.rtx,
that the stockholders of the Cairo nnd St.
I.ouls railroad company, or rather, cer
tain of the stockholders ot that corpora
tionhave called a meeting ol the stock
holders for the purpose of electing seven
director. This movement means a "ood
deal, and will probably reult In the con
tractors, who with their friends own the
majority of the stock, becoming the com
itany to all intents and purposes and set
tllmr with themselves At the l:it
meetliiir of the )reeiit directors, the
ceinpany decided that no settlement
could yet be made, and this action did
not, evidently, give satisfaction to cither
the "contractor or Mr. Smithers, the
agent of thcjbomlholdcrs, whose Interests
should be those of the company. The
contractor? have therefore probably come
to the conclusion, that If they cannot in
duce the company as at prc-eut consti
tuted to settle with them on their own
terms they will reconstruct lheeompany
in such a manlier as to give them what
in their opinion they ought to have. The
names signed to the notice of uicctliigad
verllsc thi- to be a fact, although it U
tiit possible thnt we may be mistaken.
At all events, the-contrnctors. bucked by
the agent of the European bondholders,

The St. Paul DUpatek gives the testi

Jjoiin. we hadn't a living grasshopper In

The corucquciice was that they burst

shoveled them Into large heaps and
burned them, and the next year we had

Illinois Honui pathic Medical Association
met in Chicago this week. Among the
interesting matters touched upon Aas
that of "The water wo drink and its re

paptrupon this subject in which he recom
mended the general use or filters to purify
drinking water. Impure ami poisonous
water l. one oi the most frultlul causes of
dlca!, of feyer, dysentery, and many
others equally severe. Charcoal filters
were rtcouuneded by the Doctor as a
cheap mid certain remedy to keep drink

brick wells were preferable to charcoal til

Educational matters In Louisiana are at

the general demoralization existing In

attendance on the public schools is small,
school teachers arc inefficient and the
chool officers unworthy. From one ot
Mr. Charles Xordhofl's late letters we
find that ol 272,:i3J children, between Mx
and twenty-one, only 67,4X1 were en
rolled In the public schools ; In one par-
Ih the Treasurer of the School Hoard has
used the funds for his private purposes
and paid the teacher in scrip to the
amount of J3,000; in another SIW.OOO was
sjient, anil the schools were open less
than a year this in a country parish. In
two parishes the school treasurers "had
absconded with unite a large amount of
money belonging to the school fund."
In another "the money appropriated to
d-tabllsh schools was Invested lu private
business aim speculation." in yet an
other "all the forms of law which should
govern school a f tain Jinvn been totally
Ignored and disregarded." In the parish
of St. Martin the Treasurer of the school
fund was discovered to be a defaulter to
the amount ol $3,700. In St James the
School Hoard had prudently burned their
records when they left the office, nnd J.
W. Iluusaker, President of the Hoard,
after giving ball of S3,000 to answer to
the charge of (rami, left the State.
In many of the parishes tjiere are more
colored schools than white. Nearly all
the state senators and representatives are
members of the board of education, and
appoint the school teachers. In this way,
the schools have been made political ma
chines, and the misapplication of funds,

If yon should lay Scribntr lor June on
the table before me, (ays some one writ
ing from New York), after looking over
the pictures and browning through
Clarence Cook's Furniture Article and
tho "Old Letter," and getting even with
the -crlaU. I should settle down to the
reading of James T. McKay's "Blrdsall
of Mapleton." I can tell you confiden
tially, that I would not be disappointed.
That McKay has a wonderful way of
making people and events seem real. As
In reading the bet iletlonlsts, like George
Eliot and Toiirgenell, you cannot help
puttihg yourself In the place of thi or
that character; and every now and then
your aic startled by an awakened mem
ory. McKay Is uneven in his stories :
but at his best he shows an insight into
the deepest things of the heart and a dra
matic power which are altogether his
own. Albert Kbodes's description of
"The Lathi Quarter" gives, I should ay,
a pretty good Idea ofa certain phase of Pa
risian Bohcmtaulsui, Col. Wnriug'.s pajM r
on Dutch Farming appeals forcibly to
the agricultural districts ; and gives these
districts particularly the dairy farms-
some practical suggestions of value. Mr.
A. B. Johnon, secretary of the late Mr.
Sumner, tells onn characteristic anec
dotes about the Senator. As for Mr.
Cook's household paper, with it taste
ful and pretty Illustrations, this Is one
of the most amusing and interesting pa
pers in the number. The suggestions n
to furnUhiiii;. etc., nru ulvfii very mod
estly, and lu a manner which sets the
reader to thinking for himself, and the
way that the author overhauls some of
Ills engravers will be found exceedingly
entertaliilutr. especially, I should sup
pose, to the engravers themselves. There
Is n generous Installment of "Scvenoaks,"
and a very small Installment ot "The
Mysterious Island," which the Editors
seem to be boiling down
to the very last point.
This story has been stopped by the En
glish Maga.luu that was publishing it ;
but in its condensed condition in Scritner
it seems to Interest the young people at
least. Mr. Muuger s article on "Maxims"
presents views on the subject which will
be new to many readers. The most
striking poetic feature ot the number Is
"The l'ower of Prayer," a darkey dialec t
poem by Sidney and Clifford Lamer.
Dr. Holland discusses "Instruction from
Outside," "The Shrinkage of Values,"
and "The Music ot the Church." The
Old Cabiuet contains "Some Suggestions
Concerning the Art of Conversation."
