that the address far surpassed the antici

we heard such an address in was our
good fortune to listen to last owning at
tho Atbencum, "The Stono Kcl,"' deliv
ered by Hon. Geonre IS. Wendling. His
address on Odd-Fellowship was not the
usual compiling of statistics, but It was
several sermons condensed in one grand
effort. Mr. W.'.s defense of the Wlblc.
Christianity, temperance, liberty and Odd
fellowship, was beautiful sublime. Sir,
did you ever study the Ores ol an audi
ence? The scene presented during tho por
trayal of tho merits of the Illble, win well
wurlby the artist's pencil ; not one In
different countenance, but each were
chained by that flow ol eloquence.
True, there were a few who looked as
though they would like to step out and
view tho weather.
On our way lioine.ouruiollier turned to
us and said: "Well, I wanted to taku that
speaker right in my arms.'' We laughed,
but did not dare to echo her words, lor
you see our husband were at our elbow;
hut mother was sate, lor lather had run
up to the lodge room to see If "that
goat" was safely housed in bis pen lor
the night. Uy the way, do you not think
It cruel to use one poor animal so long?
Mr. remarked yesterday, "that
poor goat had been greased so
olteu, its caudal appendage was entirely
gone." We think there Is work for -Mr.
Wurgb, hi the different orders, to see that
a new animal Is provided every few
mouths, and send the worn nut ono to
Well, Mr. IMItor, I finely eoufo-s to
you, I have not been an ardent admirer
of Odd Fellowship, although our worse
hall belongs to'lbat honorable body, and
our dear father also, has been a member
ever since we llr-t knew him, that is
somewhere In the iiebrhborhood of
twenty or thitty years. At the'

pressed by a remark dropped by a friend
of yours, It. W. Grand Master .1. II.
Oberly, who told his brethren to escort
their wives to the Athenetim and llud
them scats, before proceeding to the
lodge room. Yc, we say brothers, If you
want your wives to honor your orders,
give Ilium always tho first attention.
And now sir, slnee hearing Mr. Wend

cause, heart and hand, and I must add,
If all men had the cnur.ign and principles

Wnlhoo Siitcrs are no strangers lo tho
theater-going people of Cairo, basing
given a number of entertainments to
crowded houses here two or three yi-.irs
ago. That they will meet with a hearty
reception on their return Is a foregone
conclusion. The following very compli
mentary notice of the sisters is from the
Cinclunati Commercial :
The three Wallace Si.ters had a large
house last night. Their new play. "Miu
nle's Luck," was well received. It is an
entertaining compound of sensation in
which there are tome very pretty, clever
and good young people, and some mon
strously wicked old ones.

most, feeling and strongly marked piece
of acting, replete with strong, emo
tional points. st the end "of the second

nie and Maud us Inky Dick, and Spolly,
thu conventional newsboy, Introduced
their specialities with effect. Tho voting
