The question as to whether an agrl

ottcn been raised, but never has

slight prospect that we will have both an
agricultural society aud a trotting park
association in Cairo next summer, as some
of the most influential and wealthy citi
zens are agitating a move ot this kind.
The 'next war,'1 now close at hand,
will give renewed prosperity to Cairo,
which will again become an important
military point. Speculative people should
therefore be getting ready for the con
flict. They should commence to buy
cheap goods, and hold them tor the rise
iu prices that mut follow the firing ol
the first gun. A bushel of greenbacks
will be given for a bushel of potatoes.
-The colored lecturer, Stokes, will

Possibly we aru not a good judged a

lecture is, that it is one of the mostele-
gautly written lectures we ever lUtencd
to. Parts of it are eloquent ; all of it is
line. Vtt have heard It, and we arc
anxious to have the good judges of good
lectures who live lu this good city of
ours also hstiu to It.
Dr. Curuuilngs told on Brother Saf-
lordthe other night told ou hitu with
considerable ability. The doctor is now
gazing with longing eyes in the direction
from which lie expects Col. James John
son and (.'apt. Ilambleton to come. He
longs to lay his detecting hand npon
their heads and read to them the little
story of their good characters. As a
head-reader the doctor is a success what
the boys of the street would denominate
in their expressive vernacular, "old
lightning, you bet."
'Eureka" is the sentiment of count
less sufferers who find the balm of relief,
and the fountain of their health and
strength, in Aycr'a Sarsaparilla. It is
the most potent of nil the alteratives to
purify (he system aud cleanse the blood.
It possesses invigorating qualities, so
that it stimulates the faded vitalities and
purges out the corruptions w hlch mingle
with the blood, promoting derangement
and decay. We are assured by many in
telligent physiclaus that this medicine
cures beyond all others ot its kind, am
we can fortify this statement by our own
experience. Atlwl (Mam.) Whitt Flag,
Squire Comings is one of the most
admlrlugest of the admirers that Dr.
Cummings has in the city. The squire
may go into the headology profession
himself one of these days. If bt should
determine to do so, we ahall not hesitate
to get out of our flesh, and, becoming a
skeleton In the Interest of science, give
him our skull to carry about with him
and exhibit as the remains ol the head of
a man who never told a lie who always,
after using his little hatchet vpon the
cherry tree in his path, promptly de
clared, in imitation ol the Washington:
"I did it t said the sparrow, with my
bow and arrow, I kill Jack Robin."
With a skull of this description Comings
would soon outshine Cummings, and
make a fortune.
Dr. Cummings, In his lecture on
"Success," commended the bold and In
telligent press of Cairo. He meant the
Sun. We know he did. It is bold. The
sheep upon ten thousand hills are Lot
bolder. It is Intelligent. There Is noth.
Ing that it can't comprehend with ease
absolutely nothing, it knows, having,
in thu language of the doctor, evolved
the fact out of its Inner consciousness,
that two and two are tour, if they are
not counted backward, or divided In the
middle like the hairol a first-class clerk
who has achieved success by his good
looks and promising to give his lady
cumstoraers little presents on Saturday
afternoons. The doctor had evidently
gazed in admiration upon the broad
brow of the divine Davis who Is the
brightness ot the effulgent Sun.
The lecture of Dr. Cummings on
"Success" has lixed us. We have be
come a convert to his methods ; and, de
siring to become a great thinker, have
turned our bed chamber into a thought
room, in which, surrounded by books
that talk through their covers, we permit
the physic force to go out from us, and
evolve, by repetition, thoughts that roust
live through the cycles, as we reason up
from a small point to the earth revolving
around the sun, and the sun revolving
around another sun, and so on ad infini
tin. All of which goes to prove that if
the members of the woman's club had so
cial equality with man they would not
need to vote ; and that the way to suc
ceed In life is to get a little tadpole and
put it in a little dish and that little dish
Into a cigar box covered with glass, and
slides and all such things.
We like Capt. Hambletou's solution
of the political problem. "You say," he
says, "that the Democrats have a quarter
of a million of a popular majority"
"Yes," is the reply to this innocent
question. "Then," says the captain,
"there can be no difficulty iu putting
Tilden into the white house. On the
morning of the 4th of March, let each
Democrat catch a Republican and hold
him. After the last Republican has
been caught iu this way, there will be
two hundred and fifty thousand Demo
crats with nothing to do but Inaugurate
Tilden, and set the old thing to going
under Democratic supervision." After
all this has been done the Radicals may,
the captain assures us, be let go without
greatly endangering anything, excepting
such things as may be left incautiously
lying around loose.
Dr. Cummings, in his great lecture
on "Success," said that a lady who
wanted a new hat lrom her husband
should feed him well; and while the
viands were passing down his well-
pleased throat, should pass around his
chair, stir up his back hair with her hand,
and say to him : "How you hold your
age ! I would not be ashamed to walk
down the street with you if I had a new
hat." "This," said Dr. Cummlugs,"wlll
always fetch a new hat." The doctor
used this language before the Woman's
Club on Thursday night. Yesterday
morning many ot the husbands of the
city had an extra fine breakfast, had their
back hair stirred up and heard the words
about the hat. The consequence was that
all day yesterday there was a constant
stream of husbands flowing into Mrs
Williamson's establishment for the pur
pose of buying their wives.hats. Mrs.
Williamson, whose stock of hats is verv
tine, has reason to thank Dr. Cummings
lor his hint that success in hat-getting
can be assured by the simple little trick
ot feeding husbands well and stirring their
We publish this morning a commu
nication from a woman on "woman's
work." The woman of this communica
tion hurls a little pebble at the centennial
women of this city and a big rock at the
women ot the "Woman's Club aud Li
brary Association." The W. C. and L.
A. is what "X.X.X." Is after. That
is clear. We believo she does It injustice.
Her complaint seems to be that the W.
('. nnd I.. A. does not often enough tell
the public what it is doing with its
money. We have been instructed to
say by a member of the club a member
who has a habit ot getting iu a good
deal ol elfectiye "woman's work" about
this establishment that it is nobody's
business what the W, C. and L. A. Is do
ing with Its own money. We have been
further directed to remark, that the W,
C. and L. A. has no money that the pub
lic has any right to know anything about.
The money tho W. C. and L. A . has on
hand, tho members of the W. C. and L.
A. contributed and obtained by givinar to
tho public value received. The W. C.
and L. A. has begged nothing from the
publU-. Its members have paid initia
tion fees, dues aud fines; and it
has earned the balance of the money it
hai on hand by giving lectures by emi
nent home lecturers, each lecture being
worth much more than tho public gave
to hear It ; by a leap year calico parly,
and by gratifying the fun-loving disposi
tion of our people by several entertain
ments of a highly intellectual description
by the Taylor Literary Society, and by
the lecture of Dr. Cummings. In this
way the W. C. aud L. A. has earned Its
money, aud It don't care who don't like
if, or words that effect. But in fact the
V. C, aud L. A. has several times pub
lished a statement of its flnances.an J now
rejoices in the possession of about $400,
which it will spend when It pleases and
how It pleases. If there Is anybody that
don't like this determination ot the W.

"Woman's Work." l-nder this head-
line Mr. Davis, In his paper of Oct. 21st,
published the following remarkable
words; "We were disappointed In one
thing ; it was this ! we failed to Jlnd Cairo
rtjrrt$tnted ly a tingle article."
This quotation Is part of a description,
or rather occurs lu Mr. Davis' descrip
tion of the woman's pavilion at Philadel
phia, and has not as yet been disputed.
although several weeks have Intervened
since its appearance and now; on the con
trary, others who vlltel the great expo
sition from here looked with eager and
expectant eyes all through this same
building and found nothing representing
the not Inconsiderable sums of money
collect! hi this city last year by the
woman's centennial association ; and they
too were disappointed ; and one at least
a little mortified as well. "If not to the
legitimate purpose, then to what purpose
was put the collections made here and else
where through the southern part of Illi
nois?" Is the question.that comes up some
what ierlstently In the minds of the
"workers" of that memorable association.
A warm discussion arose iu tho pres
ence of the writer of lhl, a few days
siuce, as to the amount collected, tor
what purpose intended, and as to
whether any statement was ever made of
either. Ilemembering this discussion.
and thinking it more than probable that
other ladies may be annoyed and con
tused by similar questions, it occurred to
me that the present would be a favorable
time to hear from any one w ho knows all
It really is unfortunate that everything
of a public-spirited kind that our ladies
take hold of is eo conducted that unpleas
ant constructions can be and are made
about it. No more is this true of this
particular association than it was true
ot the old orphan asylum management
ol the past, and the 'W. C. and L. L.
A." ol the present. Who what woman
can tell head or tail of that old asylum
nusiness to-day and what man ever
mentious it but with a Vlur
on woman's capacity for sell-govern
ment? Deserved or undeserved, this
Is true ; and is no less true ol the Liter
ary and Library association. As a "Lit
erary and Library association," this so
ciety is not known at all to our people.
As a successful set of money-gatherers
the members of this society are well
known, and are not creating that whole
some confidence iu "woman's work"
that they might by pursuing a straight
torward and business-like manner ol ac
counting for all moneys collected by
them, so easily to do.
When men conduct business transac
tions as women not untrequently do,
they are gravely censured ; womeu can
expect no less, and, in fact, often receive
undue condemnation, where nothing but
strict justice would be dealt out to men.
It behooves all women, then, engaged In
"woman's work," to protect themselves
and their sister-workers, here and else
where, by conducting their work so
fairly, and above a thought of a suspicion
or trickery, that no man, or woman
either,, can deride' either them or
their work. Until this is fully
understood by our women they
must and will labor under great dis
advantage. As a sUunch believer In the purity of
woman's intention in all departments of
life, I still am compelled to admit that
she is, seemingly, less honorable and
honest in all money matters than are
men. I say seemingly, for in reality it
is a peculiar kind of ambition or greed to
secure more money for her particular so
ciety than any other society has that
Impels her to beg of men unable to give
and ask assistance of women who are
themselves needing. This is I believe a
fault coming from a lack of sober second
thought, much oltener than from an in
ward born capacity for doing little
So long, however, as woman w ill do
these thinsrs she must and will reap the
consequences ; and she has no need to
wonder why her gentlemen friends shun
her and turn corners, and squirm and
mince w hen she does catch them, w hen
she remembers how often in the course
of a year they are called upon to give
money they never even hear of again,
and can 63e no good results arising
from, one time out often.
For one, 1 like to 'know what uses
money is put to when I exercise my best
energies aud give my time toward help
ing to collect it. And 1 am not alone lu
this ; nor do 1 think it unreasonable iu
any one, man or woman, to ask this
much of all societies supported by the
people at lari'c.
It is folly to claim that woman U not
capable of managing things successfully.
Who runs our churches; our societies;
and almost all our different organiza
tions, but our women? But there is
much, yet, for woman to do much that
she owes to 'herself. She must learn to
manage things In such a way that she
brings no jeer or word of, disrespect or
doubt ot her entire faithfulness in all she
does ; and she must create the well
grounded confidence in her and her
work that is so apparently a thing un
known in our community. This the can
do by being true to herself and to her
natural instinct, and so guiding her life
that all w ith w hom she comes In contact
can see she Is "that best and noblest work
of God, an honest" woman. Let me
recommend these reflections aud facts to
our own women, here, in Cairo.
