bills now due us must be settled
immediately, otherwise we shall

The summer ot 167C will long be re

Hon. A, H. Irvin is in the city on a
short Ie-ave of absence. He reports every
thing moving along r-moothly euough at
Springtield. He does not consider the

Mrs. S. Williamson, milliner ,Ct)iumer

ever offered to the ladies of Cairo. She
invites an examination of her goods.

always kept In the neatest order, ready

The old Quaker that assumed a need
in the perfumed young dandy to cover
up something unpleasant was half right.
.-o reasons B. T. Babbitt. For he makes
his Toilet Soap scentless, that his craft
may not be confused with that of tlio;
who uiako the average toilet soap. This
new toilet soap only needs to be tested to
drive all others trout use In the chamber
