New Orleans, Memphis, Ykksburg,
and other cities on the Mississippi river
propose to tight the yellow fever by a
systematic use ot disinfectants. The
medical boards in charge of the sanitary
affairs ot the cities named prove by irre
lutablo statistics that the practice ot dis
infection, once so popular, has almost
completely removed the scourge of yel
lew lever from those cities, or at least di
vested it of its principal terrors. While
we of Cairo need have no tears on ac
count of the yellow teyer, there are other
diseases that it Is as well to guard against,
and now is a good time to go into the
ilifcinfeciiiiR uroeess. An "ounce of pre
vention Is worth a pound of cure."'
There.is much complaint among the
firemen of the city at the condition ol
the public cisterns, aud we have been re
quested to call the attention of the mayor
and city council to the matter. It is
said there is not a cistern in the city that
could be used in case of lire. All
except the one at the corner of
Commercial avenue and Fourteenth
street are entirely empty, and while the
one at the corner of Commercial avenue
und Fourteenth street has water in it,
the manner in which the oneninir or
mouth is covered with dirt renders It un
available in the case ol tire. This is a
matter that deserves tho immediate at
tention of the authorities, and wo hope
they will gee to it without delay.
There was an unusually large num
ber of people in attendance at the cere
mony of decorating t'ie graves of the
soldiers in the national cemelerv at
Mound City yesterday. All the railroads
running Into this city and Mound City
run special trams, and it is estimuted
that not less than lelir
thousand persons visited the
cemetery during the day. The cere
monies were ol the usual impressive and
beautiful character, and all the graves
iu the cemetery, Federal and Confeder
ate alike, were decorated. Col. G. W.
McKeaig, of this city, was chosen presi
dent of the day, and patriotic and ap
propriate addresses were made by Col.
Bigbyof Paducah, Kentucky, and Col.
Wallace, of Lexington, Missouri. F.y

antly, and we hear ol no accidents of any
But few persona outside ol the sher
Iffs olllce havo any Idea of the number of
peoplo who at every term of court seek
positions on tho juries. There are pi o
fesslonal jurymen men who do no hesi
tate to make application to the sheriff; and
his assistants to be placed on tho regular
panel ot the petit or grand juries. The
latter Is most sought after. Souao
ol these men do not ask to bo placed on
the Jury, but assuming a patriotic air, say
to the sheriff : "I do not feel as a citizen
of the state I have a right to shirk the
responsibility ol being nJuror,'so do not
hesltato on any account to put me on tho
Brand lury, or regular panel of the petit,
Jiny if you see fit. I believe it Is a duty
which every citizen owes to lis fellow
man and his stale." ThUls an adroit
way of begging lor the place. The regit
lar professional Juror regards tho posi
tion in tho light ot a permanent situation,
and he becomes Indignant ll he Is not se
lected each term of court.

Our lidbruiant says. : You Jlnd that

thcui tho sim beams with all il- power.
The way to keep a house cool is for per
sons to opeu their wiudows between six
and seven o'clock iu the uiumiug lor ven
tilation and then Uo.so thcui, and also
tho blinds. By keeping thcui closed all
day it can bo dl:oyerei what happiness
means ; the thermometer will indicate a
cooler atmosphere by from twenty to
thirty degrees than that ol out doors.
It, la on the same principle as a refrige

closed it will retain its coldness, but ll

those who seem blind to the
charming beauties ot your city.
Who could have witnessed the fascinat
ing trinity service lu your Episcopal
church on Sunday evening without
admiring that lofty power "woman's
devotiou iu the cause of holy rite,"
which gave such indispensable aid to
your energetic pastor In the discipline ot
that little army of young soldiers,
hearing appropriate mottos on their
banners and lifting their well tuned
voices as they marched to joyful dnty in
the christian service of the cross.
It is true that wherever we go
throughout this vast, continent,
relined ample opportunity tor
tho indulgence ol gross habits in social
life even on Sunday, yet to the everlast
ing honor ot the ladies be it said that not
only in Cairo, but all over the land their
untiring eflorts aud shristian vir

redeeming influence. rcnQindiut! us nrac-
