1o the E'lltor of the Tlulletln:
D ar Sir I notice in the Evening
Sun of Saturday, an article entitled "At
tention Authorities," from the pen ol
' Health," and I agree fully with the
Sun' correspondent; and I think the
subject connot be published too much. It
may bring our authorities to a sense of
their duties. A few days labor and a
couple of teams would readily put the
city, a it now stands, In a somewhat
better condition so far as the complaint
ot '-Health" is concerned. Wu-nltha
to be done there Is the cry of '-no money,"
but when money Is required for some
thing that is really tin benefit to tbe city,
"somehow or other" it can be readily
raised in Cairo. The remedy sifgested
by "Health'' is a goo l one ; the nforce
incnl of the ordinances, and that at least
should be done. H people cannot be
Ion ed to Improve the appearance of the
streets immediately In front of their
dwellings and business house-t, they
should at least be required to not mar or
make them worse than they are. While
cattle are ailowc-d to run at large and
drop their dung where It will be most
convenient for the fact of pedetrian,
hogs are obliged to be kept
up. Why not let the hogs
at large? They are good scaven
gers and will perform the duties that clti
cens omit and that the authorities per
mit to remain undone. Waiting till the
last moment w hen we are virtually foroed
to cleanse the city costs money that
could be saved if the ordinances were
properly enforced; but, I doubt not, iu a
great measure our apathy of the citizens
Is to blame more than the carelessness of
tho authorities. The maxim, "an ounce
of preventative Is worth a pound of
cure," is applicable to our city,
so far as its cleanliness Is concerned. All
good citizens should take au Interest in
this matter, as what is worth more than
money, their health and their lives are
concerned, and sec to it that the authori
ties do their duty, and force such citizens
as are nrzligcnt or don't care to do

There was a sudden change la the
weather on Sunday evening, and Monday
morning dawned bright, though very
cold, and a stiff north wind eontinued to
blow throughout the day. Friday and
faturday, and until late Sunday evening
the weather was warm, with oeeaslonal
perts of rain falling, and the snow
which fell in the early part of the week
had nearly all. disappeared. Ice In the
Ohio river was running thick and fast,
and Indications of an opening up of nav
igation were considered excellent. But
the sudden and unexpected change cl
Sunday night has dislpated all hope In
that direction. Should the present
weather continue a day or two longer
the river will be eflectually closed again.

Business in all Its branches is quiet,
and merchants are having an easy time of
it. 1 his condition of affairs is Induced,
not because there Is no demand for

moving them after being sold. The de
mand for flour, hay aud oats is active, but
with navigation suspended, and the rail
roads taxed to their utmost capacity with

still. However so far as the Mississipp

better chances within a few days, that

use of 100 extra cars m be delivered to

able to afford our merchants at least par
Rates remain as last quoted S-'O cents

that the prices here given are only lor

necessary to charge an advance over
