P.vrrKits. Located at the continence
of twogteat rivers, ami with live rail
roads centering here, Cairo Is the recep
tacle ot un limine proportion ot tramps
and paupers ; and a a consequence the
county poor-house has hcretoloro been
constantly crowded wlh paupers, three
fourths of whom have not thu slightest
claim to support or charity at the hands
of our eitl.ens.. 1 11 this connection we
take plea-uro hi giving our readers the
following item ol news on Hits subject.
County Commissioner S.iinnioiis lias

seen from his letter, don't propose to
harbor "paupers who are able lo travel."

maintaining the paupers ot this county,
is an Item lor Hie serious consideration of
tax payers. Plea.-u allow mo to give
them some light on thu subject through

amounting to about $10 a quarter, or
$11111 per year.
When I look charge- of the poor farm
I found twunty'Slx jiersous being sup

$250 per mouth. Of thu twenty-six I
discharged all but nine, anil they are old
