Job of verse. Mr. Winter Is one

The picturcsquoncssol Italian lite, with
Its dirty brown lauaroni, it is leared, Is

peace is our weakness. And this fact

This paper said, some time ago, that
it didn't want any foolishness about the
senatorial electiou. It said it wanted a
Democrat elected, but would rather have
Logan than allow the Independents of
the general assembly live in number
aud all of them Republicans to dictate
to the Democrats their -candidate. It
remarked, in this connection, that the
Independents had too long dictated to
the 1 emocratlc party and that it prefer
red straight-out Radicals to bogus Radi
cals like Booth ol California and Cameron
ol Wisconsin. This gave offense to some
of our Democratic iriends. w ho say it is
Democracy to advocate the doctrine ol
anybody-to-beat-Logan, aud that the
Bin ktin, because It refuses to adopt
tills policy and advocate rebelion war
to the knife against the Radicals aud the
knife to the hilt Is a Republican paper.
Well, these d d fools, who will hide
w hen the war does commence, have al
ways abused the Bci.lktix, and they
cau keep on damning us until they get
tired. We are lor a straight-out Demo
cratlc senator like Palmer or Trumbull,
if we cau get such a senator, and we are
for peace. The Democrat who don't
like this abort programme of the Bri.
I ktin, may get up on his ear and be as
mad as blazes for all we care.

The suggestion haa been oflered to the
ladies of the Library Association that in
stead of giving a masquerade, as they
thought of doing soon, they turn the
party Into a lancy dress ball ; that they
give an elegant supp.r, etc. Now,
should our lady friends conclude to ac
cept this suggestion, there is but little
doubt that it will pay. Ol course, the ex
pense of such an undertaking will be
greater than it would should they give, as
the boys would call it, a "wind" masquer
ade. But let them manage the nflair as
it should be managed; let the ball be
strictly aelect, high-toned, aud fashion
able in the lull sense of the word, and
tickets of admission will bring a round
sum, aud a big attendance will be sure to
follow. A party of this kind will pay
better than any other kind, says the high
mucky muck ol the Bulletin, and the
funny man is of the samo belief.

Of Alderman Charles O. Patlcr, the
United Slates Biographical Dictionary
Charles O . Patter, wholesale and retail
merchant of Cairo, was born In Easton
Pennsylvania, on the first of January,
1839. He Is of French decent, his father
having emigrated to this country in 1820,
and located at Easton, where he still re
sides. Charles O. was educated In the
public schools of that city until twelve
years of age, when he was sent to Wil
liamsport, Pennsylvania, to learn the
mercantile business with Adam Foilmer,
then a leading merchant ol the latter
place. Here he underwent a course of
Instructions in the commercial college ol
that city. At an early day ho became
noted for his great energy and success as
a salesman, to which he seemed thor
oughly adapted. At the age of eighteen
he removed to Illinois and settled at
Freeport, Stephenson county, where he
was employed as salesman for William
Allen, and soon established for himself a
reputation for efficiency and ability ol
the yery highest order. He had always
been a strong Republican; and immedi
ately on the breaking.out of the late re
bellion he went to St. Louis and there aid
ed in raising a company of volunteers, and
joined the Sixth Missouri regiment under
tho first call of President Lincoln. He
was mustered In as first lieutenant of
company D., and took part hi the march
to Southeastern Missouri alter the rebel
General Price. After this he was ap
pointed provost-marshall ol Jeflerson
City, the copital of Missouri, and re
mained in that capacity about two years,
and became rioted lor his patriotism and
the eminently able and efficient manner
in which he discharged the onerous
duties of his office. After this he again
joined his command, took part in the
seige and capture of Vicksburg and the
battles following, participated in Sher
man's march to the sea, was seriously
wounded in the right breast at Golds
borough, North Carolina, after which
he was sent to David's Island, New
York harbor, to be cured, and after four
months was again with his command,
which was then on duty at Little Rock,
Arkansas, and there remained till the
close of the war. He was promoted to
the rank of captain, and mustered out
with his regiment in June, 1SC3, having
served his country faithfully and nobly
from a sense ol duty, having otherwise
no taste for the profession of arms.
In 1 SCO he settled in Cairo, and was en
gaged as salesman by Wm. II. Purcell,
whose stock of merchandize at that time
consulted of a remnant ot puttier's goods
not exceeding a thousand dollars in
value, but under the stimuious of Mr.
Patier's activity, the business rapidly In
creased and the house assumed the style
ol the New York Store. In ISC7 he
bought a half interest In the firm, which
continued to prosper and grow in favor
with the public. In March, lS72,Mr.
Paller bought the remaining interest of
the firm and became sole proprietor,
and, taking Into partnership with him
Mr. Wm. Wolf, the former book-keeper
of the house, entered upon a career
which, for success and rapidity of
growth has had but tew equals and still
tewer superiors in the annals of com
merce. They commenced business in a
small frame house, with a stock of mis
cellaneous goods valued at five thousand
dollars, while to-day they have a stock
of goods embracing every variety of ar
ticles needed lu the economy of home,
person or farm, valued at fifty thousand
to sixty thousand dollars. The sales of
the house five years since amounted to
fifty thousand dollars annually, now they
reach close upon a million dollars annu
ally. They commenced business in a
little hampered room constructed of
board?, which, after undergoing several
enlargements, gave place in 1874 to a
magnificent brick and iron struc
ture, one hundred and seventy
five feet deep aud seveuty
flvj ieet front, three stories high,
eyery floor ol which is packed with
goods. The house began with two Dales
men the proprietors; now they employ
a large force of clerks. Twenty years
ago, Mr. Patier was an obscure salesman
in an Interior town of Pennsylvania.
Through his own eflorts and tireless In
dustry, upon his own earnings, without
aid or advice ol any kind, he has risen to
the proud distinction of a leading mer
chant and capitalist of Illinois. He has
achieved thU success fairly and honestly
through a close study ot the wants of the
market and a strict observance of the
maxim, "That a nimble penny is better
than a sluggish sovereign." In all his
transactions with the public his course
lias been characterized by candor, truth
and inflexible uprightness.
He was married on the 27th of Novem
ber, 1S74, to Miss Mary Toomy, ot Chica
go. They liave two childen a son and a
daughter : Maud and Charles O.
Mr. Patier was raised under Methodist
influences but was never a church mem-

it was loudly susplcioned had "come" the
confidence game on a Kcntucklan Fri
day morning. The losing party's name
Is A I. Carpenter. He came to Cairo and
fell in with these gentlemen, one of
whom remarked: "1 understood, sir,
that you are a cattle buyer." "1 buy 'em
sometimes," remarked Carpenter. "I
have several car down at the Yineeunea
depot, and if you will go with me proba
bly we cau strike up a bargain ;" and
Carpenter said, "All right." They ar
rived at the depot, but before reaching
the cattle cars, and while near the old
warehouse In the rear ot the hotel, one
of the men drew a five dollar note Irom
his pocket and asked Carpenter If he
would be kind enough to change It for
hiiu. CarpeuUr replied, "certainly ,'
and, putting bis band In bis pocket, drew
out a roll of money containing twenty
live dollars. No toouer was the money
exposed to the gate ot the two men, tbaja
one of them seized blm by tba throat,
while the other took the money from

leaving their victim alone. Crain was
