log the letter addressed to Dr Keynolds
through your paper? I am supposed by
some of your readers to be the author.

criticism ot the temperance move

but so anxious am I for reform, that I am
glad to tee it come in almost any way.
1 consider strong drink the greatest curse
of life, and surely Cairo has been espe
dally afflicted. I belong to no associa
tlon, but am, practically a temperance
woman; always have been, and always
expect to be; and have always advocated
the cause. Tho "Red Ribbons," the
"White Ribbons," Dr. Reynolds and all
others forwarding temperance have my
best wishes for their success. And you,

The Worrell sisters and the celebrated
German comedian, Geo. S. Knight, will
appear at the athcncuiu to-night, In Mars
den's celebrated drama entitled "Otto; or
a Game ot Chance." There Is every
reason to behove that there will be a "big
house" to witness tho play to-night, and
those who have not secured their scats
should do so at as early an hour as pos
sible this morning. The New Orlcms
Timet says ot the troupe:
"We record a fact when we write that
Mr. Knight and the Worrell testers came,
saw, were seen, and conquered. Mr.
Knight was particularly victorious. His
songs and recitations took the house,
and the pretty duets betwecp the Sisters
were clamorously encored. This much
for the reception. The play Is much
stronger than the average dramatic set
ting to et)r:la'li- attractions. It Is not a
mere ven.cle. ihcrc Is a plot which
possesses sotno interest In Itself, and It is
a play wiucu will take witn the niuilN
tude. Thus equipped, Mr. Knight and
the Worrells may count upon a fairly
prosperous week. Speaklnir generally.
tho performance was highly satisfactory.
The furious applause which accompanied
It, ecrtiiics to that satisfaction. Wo de
ter parlicu'arizatlon to a more conveni
ent hour, lor the reason that there
were many points which were pre lor to
uiscuss at our leisure,"
