Read This. ian tfartman Is tilling
off at coat. This Is no dodge to induce
leople to buy, hut Mr. Hartman means
what tie says. ' He desires to go out of
the dry goods trade and will quit that
branch of his business as soon as his pres
ent stock can be disposed of. In this
connection It may tc well to state that
his stock Is not old or shelf worn, hut on
the contrary is fresh aud seasonable, and
of the latest styles, consisting of such
goods ns nre usually to be found In a
first-class dry goods store. His stock ot
notions and gent's furnishing goods Is
also large and select, nnd will be sold for
one-third less than the same can be pur
chased elsewhere. All Mr. Hartman
asks Is an examination of his goods and
prices to convince every ono that he
means Just what he says. Call and see
Keep Cool. Some of our citizens ex
press the belief that whatever prospects
there may have been for obtaining an ap
propriation from, the general government
for the improvement of the Mississippi
river in this section, has been destroyed
by the recent publication in the Chicago
Tribune. We see nothing very serious In
all this. We must expect opposition, and
especially from Chicago. Jf Cairo meets
with no more serious opposition in her
efforts to obtain an oppropriation than
that contained In the Tribune, we will do
well. In fact, wc sec nothing In all Uiat
lias been said by outside papers to cause
alarm, or unnecessary distrust in the
minds of our people. It the worst comes
wo will know It soon enough, and there
Is no uc borrowing trouble on interest.
The Chicago Tribune is not congress, and
Its oppostlloh to the proproscd appro
priation will not exert any influence with
the members of congress, especially
when the appropriation Is suggested and
backed by such men as General Simpson,
Humphreys and others. So let us rest

Mardi Gkas at Memi'UIS. The com
coming carnival at Memphis promises to
to be the grandest event that has ever
taken place in that city, and it is esti
mated that nt least one hundred thousand
visitors hailing from all portions of the
continent, will visit Memphis on Carni
val day. From the programme we learn
that "King Rex has made all necessary
arrangements for the entertainment of
his subjects, and will sec to it that they
are well provided for and made comfort
able during their stay In the city." His
Majesty further announces that he has
selected the good steamer .las. D. Parker
for services on this great occasion,
and placed her In command ot those
faithful and efficient officers, Capt. Robert
Wise, and clerk C. B. Russell, whose
duty it will be to transport all loyal sub
jects from abroad to tho city of Memphis
that they mny participate lu the festivi
ties, aud enjoy the pleasures of his court.
Tills splendid craft will carry passengers
for about one-half tho usual rates. She
will arrive at Cairo onJMonduy morning,
tho 28th Inst., with ample accommoda
tions especially reserved for those who
mnywlsh to make tho voyago from this
city; and no ono should fall
to embrace this opportunity to
witness what will prove, we
may say, the most insignificant nnd won
derful celebration the Southern country
has ever known.
