Mn. Eiutok: Mrs. S. J. S., in her
lat letter to the Gaittte, dom that which
a woman of her ability should know bet
ter than to do "bits licrtiofeofrtofplto
her face.'' She triumphantly aMerla that
"women generally (at I understand her),
do not earn a cent; that deny It as they
may, their money all comes out of their
hU'ibauds' pockets." How can she, In
the face of such astatc ot a flairs, demand
fnaf rlchts for vtouien? If they nrc Idle,
uselcfs, empty-handed coasuniers and
no workers, what right have they to a
voice In the affairs of the nation? Would
It not be a perilous thing to place any
power In iuch helpless, Incompetent
liandf It seems to me, that a sure way
to secure success for any cause, Is to get
Mn. S. J. S. to oppose it, So wierd is the
e fleet of Iter arguments, that she Invaria
bly proves thu very thing right, which
she U endeavoring to prove wrong. 1
think we centennial workers owe her a
debt of gratitude for the good she has al
ready doue to our cause.
She says: "Tea parties, etc., are all
well eno'ign in their places, bnt why not
take the cost of the tea, cream, tngar
and cake, and contribute that, and do
away with the useless fuss and worry?"
Xow, If Mrs. S, J. S. were pratlcal wo
man, the woald know that we expect to
mak the cost of these articles repay ns
threefold but Mrt. S. J. S. doesn't know
this. She Is probably occupied In ac
quiring the mastery over tome scituee,
by which she will eveatually not only
tarn her own ulckles but startle tlte
world vIth her brilliancy.
She, and.'a great many other wotaen
like her, who never assist iu auythlug
otitsldt of their own families, who talk po
much of home duties, home pltamrei
and self-culture, should certainly develop
Into mortals of womanly sweetness and
cultivation mortals for the rest of ut to
patteru after. To the eyo of the easuul oh-eerver,-however,
sueh a result Is not al
ways attained by that class of women. 1
wonder how Mrs. S. J. S. always iluds
time lrom tier many home duties to write
such quantities of letters for publication!
Perhaps that Is one way she has of culti
vating herself, at the expense of a eiiflcr-
Ilig public. I'm ufhdd die wastes
almost as mauy ,'preclous hours
In talking and writing about
the Centennial Association as the ladles
who am engaged in that work. She re
minds me of other Indies I know, who
are always wondering how certain other
ladies find time to do so much work for
soclctlts, etc., without neglecting their
families, while those very fault-llndlag
people aro galloping over tlio streets half
their time, shopping, or spending half,
and even whole days, with their acquain
tances, gossiping; and if you have any
deslte to hear tho latest and worst piece
of scandal, you have only to go to one of
these "cultured home women," to get it.

Early yesterday morning, Honry
Wood, a well-known river pilot, and an
other river man, named Hardin Samuels,
began filling themselves with whisky,
and iu n consequence, began quarrelling.
They kept up their quarrel until about 12
o'clock, when the dilllcnlty was brought
to a foens at the eorner of Eighth Street
nnd Ohio levee. It seems that Samuels
had several times attempted lo strike
Wood with a billet of wood, but tailed
each time, aud when .he tried It for the
hist lime Wood drew 11 large pocket-
knife aud Jabbed it into SamtiM's right
breast, near the pli of the arm. Wood
wua arretcd by Sheriff Irvln and Deputy
ShcrltV John Cain, who took the knife
away from him, and put him Into the
lock-up, to await his trial. whHi will
take placo before Judge l!ro? at 10
o'clock this morning. Whim Sbcrlfl
In in attempted to tako lie ,v.-ny
from Wood, he found It In 1 ooket
open and rcadv for use, should lie hv
occasion to ue It, and Wood did not ap
pear to rcllsli the Idea of giving It up.
Samuel' vtoHiid was examined by Dr.
Ilrlpham, aud found to bo light, though

The Trustees ot Iho Cairo City Prop-crty-or
rather, Col. Taylor of tho Trus
teesgave to the Cairo nnd St. Louis
railroad company right ot vny through
tho lauds of thu trust and over tho levee,
and valuable property for depot grotind
and yards near the St. Charles hotel. I'he
consideration for these favors was an
agreemont made by tho company with
the Trustees by which the company
agreed to maintain the Mississippi Ieveo
and protect It ngnlnst erosions by the
currents of the river.
Wh' : the cun cut began lo wash the
levee, Col. Taylor railed the attention of
the railroad olllcers to the tact, nudnkcd
them to stop the cutting process going
on. They promised, but did not. They
permitted the ieveo to be washed away,
coolly removed their rails on lo the lands
of the Trustees without saying: "By
your leave," and then began to deny that
the company had ever made a contract to
protect the levee, nnd to say mysteit
ously: "The Colonel will not disturb u?."'
The Colonel has disturb! them, aud the
managers of the road are beginning to
understand that the have canght a Tar

speelal deputy of Mr. E. H. Hoe, United
States Marshal for this district, fo.rvrd
upon the ofllcert of the road, an order Is
sued by Judge Treat temporarily enjoin

and each of them, from cutting or dig

On Sunday morning last, between 1)
aad 10 o'clock, the attention of Mr. and
Mrs. Gladncy was attracted by the cry
ing of a child in the strerts In trout of
their house. Mr. Gladuey lives near tho
corner of Twelfth aud Walnut streets.
On going to .the door Mr. Gladuey
found a little white boy, III clad. wet.
and sullbrlng with cold toddling 11ong
fJie sldetvalk. Ife approached the little
fellow and took him into tiio house,
where ho yet remains, no onu having
called for him, nor has the p-irentu of this
little shaver been fouud. When picked
up by Mr. Gladuey the ehlb on a
sack made of an old white jollon
blanket, a check jacket, stockings thai
may at one time have been white, and
A description of the child in as follows:
Drown hnlr, black oyes, rosy-cheeked
and very llcshy. He gives his name 11s
Charlie, but beltig unnblo to utter many
words can give no account ol himself.
He seems to bo perfectly at home with
hit new found Iricuds, and well con
From a gentleman living Iu the vicinity,
wc ascertained that a tow days ago a
woman with a child much resembling the
HtUc boy now nt Gladney'.s was seen 111
the neighborhood ; and that she Inquired
very particularly about tho names of Ihe
streets. This ,-ainc woman was seen at
about 10 o'clock Sunday morning going
south 011 Twcllth struct, but the child
was not with her.
The theory Is that the mother, being
poor and vuihWu to obtain employment,
could not suppqrt the child, and ikter-
tnlned to abandon It nt some point whrro
she believed it wonld be taken up and
cared for. TJiM f proliably tlio cornet
theory, ffthellttlo fellow had t rayed
awny from home, or been lost, joiiiu 0110
would havo been found to lay claim to
him long before this. I
