A liftd niapoaltlonrd Mule.
"A stubborn mule is the wust thing a
feller can fool with." That's what Josh
Hillings says, and his assertion is cou-
llrmed by John Heed, an tip-town negro
boy. John tried to ride a mule into the
water between Fourteenth aud Eight
eenth streets, yesterday, but the mule
didn't seem to care about going. The
negro struck him a stunning blow with a
large stick, and in he went not the mule
but the negro boy right over the ani
mal's head. He struck the bottom of the
pond so hard with his unprotected head,
that his neck came near being broken, aud
I'eed came to the conclusion that it was
no go, and gave the work up as a bad
The Mayor nnd the health Olllcer ad
monish the people to kill, by the use of
lime, the smells almost certain to result
from the disappearance ot the rain water
that has accumulated in the low places
of the city during the recent season of
high water in the rivers. We think there
is no reason to tear for the health of the
city none whatever. It Is now tho
healthiest place in the world, nnd the lit
tle floating islands ol vegetation, will run
out through the sewers leaving no disa
greeable stenches behind. Tho smells
will be of nard and cassia, which the
west winds, with musky wing, will 'bout
our shaded streets all fling as it were.
Business in the police courts of Cairo
lias again dwindled down to almost noth
ing, and Judge Bird, who is attending to
the greater part of the work, during the
time county court is in session, iluils
plenty of time to rest. There were four
oflenders before His Honor yesterday :
The llrst was a colored man named John
Thomas, who was up for assaulting
and striking a colored damsel named
Magge Chambers. Thu cvldenco war
ranted His Honor in making John pay
for the pugilistic Am he indulged in at
Maggie's expense, and the prisoner was
lined ten dollars and costs. Ho couldn't
pay, and went to the calaboose where ho
will sojourn lor six days, nt the expenso
of the city.
Ida Winsor, Minnie G lover and I.illle
Glover, three inmates of one of the dis
reputable houses of this city, while in a
high state ot good humor on Wednesday
night, indulged too freely in intoxicating
drinks and become tight. They were
not, however, too full for utterance, for
it is said they were quite profuse with
their words, and made a big noise. They
were arrested by Officers Woolen and
Schuster, who took them before Judge
Bird yesterday morning for trial, They
were lined live dollars and costs, which
they paid, and were allowed to go their
way, but not until they had listened to a
few words of advice from Ills Honor

The following letter was received at

and had challenged the Idlewllds to play
for from one hundred and fifty to five

ter will be definitely settled within a day

think we can "cover their pile" for that
amount. It must be understood, how
ever, that we are not iirofesslonals and
