tors in this department was very large,
especially in the afternoon. Miss Thomp
son conducted the examination of most
of the classes. Thei ecitatiou of the classes
in geography, arithmetic and gram,
mar, were most thorough and searching
and tho answers to questions propounded
were correct In almost every instance;
and the most gratifying indication of the
thorough training ot the scholars was
the promptings with Jwhich they gave

In Cairo and oiieiicd out a sort of a gift
enterprise establishment In totie of the
shanfles on Eighth street near Washing,
ton avenue. T he no optmwtl of the
enterprise was this: A space of aWtt
three feet deep by ten feet long on one
side ol the room was covered with fancy
photographs of . the ordinary size. Be
hind the photographs was a slip ol white
paper and on say one In twenty of these
slips was marked cither the figures one,
five or ten. T he pictures were .sold at
fifty cent each, the purchaser taking his
choice. It on removing the picture
either ol the figures above named were
exposed the party buying the picture
was entitled to the amount designated
In money, whether one, five or tin dollar.-.
Of course the pictures were worth
less, and r.o one would be fool enough
to pay fifty cents lor one of them if there
was not a chance of getting a money
prize with It. The party buying the pic
ture stood only one chance in about
twenty, and may be thirty, of getting
anything more than the picture. Sheriff
Saup believing the enterprise to be noth
ing more 'than gambling, a game ot
chance, took out a warrant lor the arrest
of the proprietors ot the establishment,
and on Monday evening arrested them
while sitting at the store in the office at
the Arlington House. They were held
during the night, and yesterday were
taken before Judge Bross for a hearing.
D. T. Linegar sppearcd for the defend- !
ants, and County Attorney Mulkey for
the people. The trial occupied consider,
able time, as there was a large number
of witnesses sworn on either side; and
when the evidence was all heard, Judge
Bross held the defendants to
bail in the sum of two
hundred dollars each lor their ap
pearance at the next term of the circuit
court to answer the charge ot gambling.
The pai tics will be able to give bail as
soon as they can receive lunds from home
but In the meantime they will be held by
the sheriff, Ol course the form ot "sell
ing" the pictures, and "giving away"
whatever money might be drawn, was
simply a weak attempt to evade the law.
Sheriff Saup has the thanks of all right
thinking men for his promptness in
nipping this Institution In the bud.
What a Little Girl Thinks of Cairo
The "composition" printed below was
read by little Wintie Dunning, at the ex
amination of Miss Phillis' school, yester
day. It is so good in its way that we
publish iu We have no doubt our peo
ple will, while they smile at the child
like way in which the situation is stated,
recognize the fact that the little girl has
hit more than cue nail on the head. Win
tie has a light ight-year old eye for tin
lighted lamp posts, and the necessity lor
fixing up a little. The composition Is as
"THE ClIY OF CAIRO.
"A great many people dislike our city
and say it Is the meanest place they ever
saw. .now, I believe tbat if people
would stop and think a moment they
would not make such remarks about our
small but thriving city, which lies on the
bank of the mighty Mississippi, the
"Father of Waters." We have a lanre
custom house, aud splendid churches tor
this size ot a place. And our public
schools can not be beaten. We have
splendid railroads coming from all points.
e also have excellent; Hotels. Aim one
thing Cairo can brag ou is we
do not have dust in summer,
as it is a sandy soil.
Still we have splendid soil
for raising vegetables and other pro
ducts. And, as I torgot to mention, we
have a magnificent bank. The City
National bank, aud a large Bulletin
printiug office: yet. In spite of all these,
people talk about us. Navigation is
never stoped on account of low water or
frozen rivers. Transportation Is good
all the year around from this point to
other points below here. We also have
the finest telegraph ollice i" this state.
We have a tine park too, v k ch we hope
lu a tew years will be improved and
made to look city-like. We also have
gas posts all over our city, but for some
reason we uo not nave mem iigntew.
I hope soon to see the city lighted hp
and made to look like a city. 1
know we have as prettv a place as any
to-dav, if it were only fixed up little."

Mr. Editor: I noticed In tour Issue

that !, being tilled up with cheap whisky,
made an assault upon tlie police, and
that I was then pining in jail. was
taken by officer l ain, not as yon have
asserted, for going for the police, but
without any authority, and I could have
resisted until I would have killed him ir
I had thought best, for fhe process iiikmi
which he took me was Illegal and vol.1,
aud there is no jutiiication for his action
in this matter. Hoping yet to get justice
in this matter I write this to remove a
