A SOVEl. KKHVEHT.
In Milwaukee a woman weighing 300
pounds applied to thechlcl tor permission
to keep a dog without license. Her dog was
a healthy one from the country ,whlch she
was fattening preparatory to serving him
up with relishes, lor a first-class dinner,
The chief was astonished nt the request
msch upon such unusual grounds, and
8nt her to Mayor Ludlngton. She
visited the honorable gentleman in care
of the interests of Milwaukee, and made
her mild request. The mayor leaned
back in his chair, surveyed the rotund
woman before him, then hastily penned
the following :
William Bck. Chief of Police:
DBxn Sir : This lady has applied to
me to have her dog relieved from the
city tax, as she Is fattening him for the
purpose or eating.
From her emaciated appearance I
judged she needed somcthingof the kind,
andso I agreed to have you Instruct tlio
policemen not to interfere witli her, but
let her cat dog or any other rare food
that will suit her delicate palate. Yours,
II. Lciiington, Mayor.
That woman's family would be of in
calculable service to such towns as Cairo.
TKeCBLK IN THE HVRF1IYMROKO
A few days ago a tiro broke out In the
rear of the Murphysboro jail, which drew
to the scene a largo crowd of people.
The fire was extinguished, when a larger
crowd than was necessary lingered In the
jail yard. Inside the jail ait: Bulliucr and
the rest of the Williamson county men
charged with the murder of Slsncy. The
Jailer's wife, Mrs. Connor, fearing that
something was wrong ordered the crowd
to disperse. A few obeyed the command
of Mrs. Connor, but a number remained,
pushed her aside and told her to go about
her business. She called her husband
who was Inside the all. Jn obedience
to the summons ho appeared on
the scene, and after being told by Mr.
Connor how matters stood drew his pis
tol and emptied tho contents of two
chambers into the crowd. A man named
Ned Driver was shot in the leg. Driver's
brother received a shot In one of his arms.
Both arc reported as quiet and law
abiding citizens, and it may turn out that
Connor was a little too hasty. But it is
generally conceded that the jailer cannot
be too vigilant when It is taken into con
sideration that Inside the jail walls are
some of the noted men of the Williamson
county vendetta who have desperate and
true friends on the outside.
All cities have their literary societies
and debating clubs. They are the schools
whence orators and statesmen come ; and
when conducted on a truly Intellectual
basis, do good from tho moment of their
organization. We have ono In Cairo, the
Taylor Literary Club, composed of the
very licit and most promising young
men in the city. All their cflorts are be
ing directed towards a permanent estab
lishment of the society in the field of lit
erature and knowledge. To reach this
position money Is necessary to supply It
with encyclopedias, dictionaries, works
on art and science, the poets, histories,
globes, apparatus for scientific research
and observation, and whatever may tend
to advance them In their search after use
ful Information. In view of this fact they
have set apartYrlday nlght,31thlnst., for
a musical cntcrtalnnwnt of a novel and
interestlnir character, in tlio Athencum.
The citizens of Cairo should take pleas
ure in assisung tno members of tho Tay
lor Literary Club In their efforts to arouse
among the yountr neonle of tlm commu
nity aspirations that lead to honor aud
distinction. Vc arc sutlifled the Cairo
club will be a success, as the young cun-
tlemen who are interested In Its welfare
are energetic, talented, and devoted to
toe enterprise. Assistance now is what
thsy most need, then their route onward
will be easier and better defined.

Phonography Is one of the needs ot the

causes of thought, have increased in
mathematical progression since the

Men have drudged long enough ; the
drudgery should last no longer. Observ

Mr. Isaac Pitman, of Bath, Kngland ;

this one did It In finding Indictments
