HOW AI.KXAXDKR WRKS1LKD WITH Til K
IthVIL AND WHH'l'D. 1UKOI.D LADY.
Mr. Alexander Saunders, a gentlemen
of color, and a very devout Christian,
attended church the other night. After
a season ol prayer and praise, he started
to go home in a devout frame of mind j
but just at the corner of Twelfth and an
other street tho Devil met him. Alex
ander is a brave man, and when the
Devil Insisted on flying away with him.
he remarked: "No, sir; 1 ain't that
kind of a man," and then at it they
went. Xow Alexander was on top, and
then the Devil would seem to triumph
for a moment ; but, finally, with the aid
of an nngol that came with a. silver belt
around iU waist, and golden slippers on
Its feet. Aleck triumphed, and the Devil
went up the spout of a bouse close at
timid. Shouting the Imttlo cry of free
dom, the triumphant mortal went ou his
way, and by a pure accident an accident
any Christian is ikely to fall upn- be
came drunk and belligerent. Arriving at
home, and feeling his prowess having
whipped the Devil - bo immediately
bounced " the old lady,'! .and thumped
her around the homo vigorously for a
few moments. And now comes Phoebe
that is Aleck's wife's name and com
plains against ber liege led lor assault
and battery. Ho is at this moment in
bonds, and will ponder upon the Devil
and his daughter, Phoebe, until he has
worked out f 10 and coifs.

The circumstance which makes the
ucain oi .urs. Miorr, reicrrcu to in an
editorial article in this paper, an event of
melancholy interest to us, was our re
cent trip to Mobile and a brief sojourn
across tne Day at snort g Hotel. Aot a
few Cairo people have enjoyed the pleas
ure ol a visit on the eastern bhore of Mo
bile bay. It was there, a: Captain
abort's, eight years ago," that Mr. S. B.
Ilalliday, whose memory is siill green in
the hearts of our people, yaiuly sought
a renewal of health am strength.
It is not too late, in this connection, to
mention some of the people whose
kindness during our stay in Mobile add
ed so materially to the pleasure of our
visit there. Chief among these, was Mr.
A. Willoughby, secretary and treasurer
of tbe Mobile aud Ohio railroad
company. Mr. Willoughby is one of the
most genial of men, and his efforts in our
behalf were untiriug. To hiui and his in
teresting family we were indebted for the
pleasure enjoyed on an excursion given
by the ''Athelstan Club," an organiza
tion connected with the Knights Templar,
and of which Mr. Willoughby Is ono of
the most active and valuable members.
Hedaid us under obligations which our
party deeply appreciated.
Mr?. W. T. Ilalliday and Mrs. A. B.
Safi'ord were happy in meeting an old
friend in Mobile Mrs. Sherman,
Morris, a cousin of Mr. Winfj.. Morris of
this city, and who visited here as a
young lady several years ago.- She is
now the mother .of two lovely children.
Mr. Sherman is in the book trade in
Mobile and Is a very clever gentleman.
Ti e ladies ot our party also innde the
acquaintance of Mrs. D. lietchum, of
Mobile. Mrs. ICctclium is at the bead of
ot an orphan asylum connected with the
Episcopal church and conducted by the
"Order ot Deaconesses." a Protestant
sisterhood who devot3 themselves
to good works, vear a distinctive
dress and resemble in many
features the Catholic Sisters of Mercy,
though tho order, iu uia.iy respects, is
conducted on principles of much less aus
terity. Mrs. Ketcbum'a : asylum is a
thorough euooess. It lias money in bank,
is furnished throughout with all thnt
makes a home pleasant aud cheerful, has
a green house which is a bower of beauty,
uud a beautiful little chapel that looks
the very home" of peace, purity and char
ity. Thirty-seven orphans of all ages,
from babyhood to eighteen years, are
now in the asylum. They are taught
the rudiments of a good commou educa
tion lu the school connected with it, and
aro trained to be accomplished servants
and house women. Dr. Kctchum, one
of the most prominent practicing physi
ciaus ol Mobile, is 'a gentleman of large
wealth, and his wife enjoys both 'mean
and leisure to devote to charitable pur
poses, which she lias done with certainly
the most gratifying results. : i
'Among those alo of whom we have
the most pleasant remembrances in Mo
bile, are Messrs. McGubey and Shields,
Grand Master and Grand Secretary of the
order ofOadFoilows iu Alabama, These
gentlemen are' both: connected with the
printing bnsloesai To their courtesy

I do my work conscientiously, and do.

tance, as often as once in two weeks, I
will v bo considered niggardly if
I do not occasionally escort ber to balls,
(1m theater, leo cream parlors, etc.;
shall I retlra to my room and read as
would be my "preference ? But my li
brary Is limited. I cannot afford to buy
such books as 1 want, and 1 have uot ac
cess to any library. What Is left frr me
to do? 1 must join my acquaintances aud
stand around the corners. It there was
a library here, open iu tlm avenings, I
think much of tho extravagance com
