The Odd Fellows have concluded to
give the ball and supper spoken of In the
Bl'llktin recently. It will take place on
the night of the seventh of January, and
Is to be, we are told, the greatest event
of the kind that has ever been held in
Cairo. Preparations for It have already
been begun, and no labor or expense will
be spared to accomplish thu success of
thu great undertaking. The most promi
nent Odd Fellows in the State of Illinois
will be present, nmong whom will be
Pat Grand Master Ellis, and Gen. E. B.
Sherman, both of Chicago, also at one
time Grand Master of theSt-Ue.
Dr.Smlth's lecture on Tuesday night,
for the benefit of the Library Associa
tion, when he will take for his subject
"Pre-HUtoric Man," promises to be one
of tlie finest lectures yet delivered during
the course. Dr. Smith Is endowed
witli great ability as a writer and
speaker, and has for several weeks
been making preparations lor this ad
dress. Hu has gathered many relics and
curiosities, as well as parts of skeletons
of the people who lived lu this country
before our time, with which hu will glyu
the most Interesting and Instructive Illus
trations. The lecture will take place in
thu Presbyterian church, nnd should not
be missed by any of our people.
Thu sociable given by the members
ot the Encampment of Odd Fellows, in
Odd Fellows' hall, on Friday night,
proved a mo't pleasant aflalr. Tho hall
was crowded with tho members of the
camp and their families, who all seemed
In the best of moods, and axlousto make
their friends feel easy and comfortable
hout halt-pat 10 o'clock, a sumptuous
upper, made up of tho most desirable
delicacies, prepared by tho good wives
and daughters of thu members, was
spread in the rear hall, of which all pres
ent portook unsparingly. Dancing was
begun early lu thu evening, and carried
on by the younger part of thu assembly,
while thu older and more scdato persons
present chatted very pleasantly together,
without Intermission until supper time.
Alter supper, the danco was once more
begun, anil continued until 1 o'clock,
when thu sociable was broken up, and
all went to their homes well pleased with
the pleasure they had been allowed to en
joy.
Tho Taylor Literary Society and
Cairo Boating Association, assisted by
Mrs. Winter, .Mrs. Wright, Mrs. Dr.
Smith, Mrs. Dr. Wardnersind Miss Mary
Wardncr, presented for thu Second time
the play of "Led Astray," at tho Athe-
neuin. Owing to other events that were
taking place, there was not so large an
nudiunco present as there should have
been, but, notwithstanding this, tho
ladies and gentlemen played their parts
with greater ability, we dare say, than on
the previous evening, and several of our
prominent cltl.ens. feeling that tho enter
tainment had not neon patrouizeii as it
should havu been, requested the perform
crs to present thu piay again last, input,
assuring them that a goon house would
irrcet them, as there were many who had
been kept from attending who desired to

put upon tho boards last night for tho

haps a description of how Mich a day Is
passed lu a ''mad-house,1' I shall under
take to tell your readers what was done
hero to-day. The leading feature of the
occasion vraj, of course, the usual
"Thanksgiving dinner," In which the
time-honored turkey took the prominent
part, supported by a species of the bird
which is said to have done an important
service on a certain occasion lor tho citi
zens of ancient Home, also duck nnd
other fowl, vegetaKles, fruits, etc., with
out limit ; aud to say that the unforlunate
insane
"KAT AND WEUK WELL FILLED,"
would scarcely do the subject Justice. Of
course all work was suspended for the day,
and at 3 o'clock the Inmates, all decked
In their best attire, were uhcred into the
new chapel (Just llulshcd aud dedicated
last Sunday), where the evening's enter
tainment was commenced with the grand
march, followed by cotilllonsand the
usual round dances, In which
PATIENTS AND EMPLOYES,
Indiscriminately mixed up, lalrly "threw
themselves away." This kind or amuse
incut appears the only one In which In
sane persons generally seem to take an
Interest.
Alter the dance Ihe audience were fa
vored with some very line vocal and In
strumental music by the members of the
choir ol one ol the Joncsboro churches,
followed by some very fine piano and
organ music by employes und others.

having arrived, tho patients returned to
their various halls where more luxuries
were partaken of, and at 7 o'clock again
went to the chapel, where dancing and
music wa eiuraged in until 0 o'clock,
when thu festivities of tho day were
brought to n close, and the
INMATES UEIIIIED
for thu night, apparently with feelings of
gratitude to Dr. lhirucs, the superintend
ent, and his able assistant, Dr. Mercer,
tor the treat provided for them.
When it Is known that nearly
ONE HUNDIIED INSANE VKUSONS
were engaged In these amusements, and
that not a single unpleasant Incident oc
curred to mar thu pleasurers of the day,
it will no doubt ho a matter ol MiiprKo
to thoso of your readers wno
have lormed their ideas ol a "mad house"
after rending such descriptions of them
as arc to be found In such novels as
'Hard Cash," and publications of a like
character, I venture to assert that It
would bo scarcely possibly to collect to
gether n miscellaneous crowd of sane
persons In any commuulty that would
behave themselves lu a more decorous
manner than did this crowd ot almost a
bundled crazy people. The days ol chains
aud straight-Jackets and padded rooms
has passed by ; and ktndnoss and gentle
treatment Is now thu means resorted' to
to cure theso victims of the most fearful
disease to which man Is subject. Although
this asylum is comparatively a new one,
and many dllllcultics had to be overcome
to get it Into good running shape, that
end has been attained, and your corres
pondent can safely say that a better
managed institution would be dllllcult to
tlnd,aud thu unfortunate insane of South
ern Illinois may congratulate themselves
that they have fallen Into thu hands of
men so considerate of their comtort aud
welfare, as are Drs. llarnes and Mer-
cjr. U.E.O.
