lb low we publish In lull, for the bene
fit of our reader, the programme ar
ranged by the Taylor Literary Society,
Ibrtbeentrrtnlunient to be given by them
for the bcuellt oftlie Woman's Club anil
Library Association, nt the Atheneuiii
Th members of the society have for
nearly a month past, devoted much time
to rehearsing the parU assigned them by
the manager of ttieaflalr, aud feel confi
dent tliat they will ncitilt themselves
with credit In the several characters for
which they have been named.
The programme! Is of a varied charac
ter, and ha been chosen by the Society
lu the belief that the theatrical ability,
posvsv.'d by the members Is best adapt
ed to the kind ol acting which It re
quires. A nuartette, eonlstlng of four young
gentlemen, wlio'f ability as singers has
been tested on many occalon during the
pat winter, namely : .Me-rs. AUthorpc,
Hacker, t'weker and Kobhlus will take
part In the entertainment, aud will not
fall, we are sure, to please all In thalr ef
forts. The two play to lj preeuted, the
"Arrival of Ulcken" and "Uom Dale,"
a burleitie on Letter Wallack's famous
play of that name, an both very amus
ing. The relier-al of the-e farces has
been wltuei-ed by u couple of gentle
men of thl- city, who-e theatrical pow
ers an: highly prahed, and pronounced
lte-ldcs the above namad attractions, n
numlM-r of.-peclalttes have been practiced
by uicmlx.-rs of the society and will be
given lor the amusement of the audi
ence. The purpo-e for which the Taylor Lit
erary Society have undertaken the enter
tainment Is one worthy the patronage ot
the citizens of Cairo, and they should con
tribute lllierally to It. The following is
the programme in full :

Quite a little scene took place on Thir
teenth street, corner of Poplar, Wednes
day night, about nine o'clock.
It seems that a colored woman, whose
euphonious name Is Mary Hunter, mi
Inz her sable lover troni his accustomed
seat at her fireside, suspected him of turn
tug traitor to tier Interests, and looking
after a certain other female, wlioe "Chris.
tian" name Is Jennie, and who belonged
to the antagonistic race tlie Anglo-
Saxon. Her suspicions were fully con
firmed, for a "mutual friend," who trav.
els through life with tlie high-toned cog
nomen ol "Boiler," getting his ittum up,
rustled over to the doubting
Mary's house aud informed tier
that ' Jim. whose other name
Is Moore, might bo found over the way,
at Jennie's, evidently having u happy
time, to the utter neglect ot the out) to
whom, of all others, he should most
necessarily devote his leisure moments
Saying which tlie Boiler "bursted," and
was seeu'no more In tlie whole course ol
tho evening's entertainment. After think
ing over the matter, Mary decided that
tlie best thing she could do under tho
circumstances was to go imuicdiathc
ly to the wily Jennie's house,
and catch the unfaithful Jluuule "In
a narc," which she did accordingly,
rushing Into Jennie' house upon the un
suspecting couple, where Jimtuiu was
pouring Into Jennie's lovIng,llstenlng ear
soft epithets of endearment, and Jennie
replying with tender emphasis: "Oh! My
dear, how sweet you nro !" and Jlmmlo
cautioning her "never to tell." This was
too'mucli for the forsaken one; she made
her. sell visible, heaving with a great rage
and the recreant Jim, thinking perhaps
they wanted to sec htm at home his
poor, old mother, for instance cut tils
sentences oft" short, without any periods
and made a hasty and not very grace
ful exit through tho open window, about
two stories from the ground.
Then, rushing like tho frightened deer
trout the pursuing huntsman, or au ar
row sped from tlie quivering bow, he
made tracks back for "home, iweet
home." Alas, for Jim! Tlie only home
tie hud lu all tlie city was Mary'i
own house, and thither she followed 1dm
arriving there soon after he did. Then a
lively scene occurred ; a second battle of
the Kllkcnnys was next lu un. !ro
gramme, and the air was freighted with
the odor of the conflict t man' wool ami
woman's dress were at a discount, and
loud oaths and dire threats werr lnter
sjiersed by way of accompaniment.
Directly It all ealinned down to me
inlet command of Mary for Jim to leave
the lioue, and never set foot lu It again.
How It all ended, we don't know, hut
tho last we heard was the pleasant prom
ise of Mary's to "chop your head off
with this axe if you try to stay here to
night ; get out," and we venture to say
