A I-ady Writes ;
I consider the Charter Oak a blessing
to every housekeeper who is lortunate
enough to have so excellent a cook stove.
A few of its merits are economy in fuel,
quick baking, with a large reservoir that
heats water quickly and hot enough for
all household purposes. We use inferior
soft coal, but the Hues are so large that
they require very little cleaning.
By a card published in another place
It will be seen that Mr. R. A. Edmund-
eon is no longer a candidate for the oSlce

The mayor, by direction of the city
council, on last Saturday ordered that
Street Superintendent Gorman with a
force oi laborers to work on the Missis
sippi river at a point near Grave Yard
ridge. The superintendent was supplied
with four hundred oat racks, to be tilled
with sand to be sunk In the
river for the purpose ot stopping the
cutting away of the banks at that point.
Cp to last evening upwards of six hun
dred sacks had been put in, and so far as
tlie work was done the washing had
ceased. In order to stop the cutting it
will require at least six hundred more
sacks, which will protect the bank lor the
time being at least.
All About is Goal.
On last Wednesday morning, when
Mr. Jo Ellis, living near Jim Mulcahay's
in Goose Island precinct, got out ol bed
aud succeeded in crawling into a pair ot
breeches three inches too short for him
ln)the legs,and lacking six inches of com
ing together around the waist, he went
to his front door to look out. No sooner
had he opened the door than a big billy
goat, the property of Jim Mulcahay, see
ing his friend Ellis in tbe door made a
bee line for him. Ellis was afraid ol bis
goodship and stepped aside just in time
to escape being butted clear through
the house and into the back yard.
Passing through tbe house the goat
wheeled about and came back for an
other charge on Ellis. But now it was
Ellis' time and just as his goatship was
entering the door, a ball from a pistol in
Ellis' hand sent him to that borne lrom
which no good goat was ever known to
return. That was a good goat, and Mul
cahay thought FJlis had no right to kill
him for so trivial an offense, so Ellis was
arrested ou a warrant sworn out before
'Squire Tom Martin. When
taken before 'Squire Martin, Ellis
applied for a change ot venue.aud Squire
Martin sent Dim before Squire Nick
Hunsacker. On the way to Uunsackcr's,
Ellis aked Dave Bishop, the constable
who had him in charge, to let him stop in
to see a friend about going his bail. Ellis
went into the bouse and Bishop remained
intberoai. When Bishop thought it
was time to move on, he called to Ellis,
but Ellis tailed to answer, and search be
ing made, it was found he bad taken to
the woods and succeeded in making his
escape. Ellis has undoubtedly taken a
chauge of venue to Missouri, where he
will probably remain.

Dull trade is the general cry among
merchants not among thoc ol any par
ticular line of trade, but In all branches.
Indeed, the la.t three days of the week
Just past seems to have been equally as
dull as any three days in the dullest sea
son of the year July and August. How
ever, this condition of affairs cannot con
tinue long and merchants generally ex
press a belief that better times are about
to set in.
The weather is cool and pleasant,
though a good rain would be welcomed
by the peoplo of Cairo, for the streets are
dry and the dust several Inches deep. '
Country produce comes in freely, and
sells at fair prices.
The Mississippi river is well up, and

The market is well stocked with meal,
with alight demand. Butter, eggs and

Strictly choice butter is In demand at all

There are very few in hand. Poultry i
scarce. Good old hens and choice young
