In commenting on our remarks on the
airo and St. Louis railroad company,
the Jouesboro (tiutlte says:
"iVe agree with llie lii i.i.min in rc-
gard to tbe bad management, ul the road.
Our people, however, Alexander and Un
ion eouuties, have invested in the road
and should derive some benefit Irom It.
The company complains that them con
stant injunctions Keep them out t.f Cairo;
for belore the Courts can act, llie track
Is wastied into (he river, and another in
junction prevents them irein laying au-
otner track. e no not, wo confess,
lully tin lerstand the merits of this case.
At ail events, winter is hero, and if the
Cairo ,t HI. Louis railroad aould now de
liver Muddy coal in Cairo, it would give
the people ot that city a cheaper and bet
ter fuel than they now have, although it
might spoil the trade ol the monopolists
who now have the coal consumers at their
mercy. Wo of Jonesboro are alo inter
ested in this coal question, as well as the
Calroiies, and want the coal trains to
come this way again.
The coniplant that ''these constant In
junctions'' keep the railroad company
from running their track nto Hie city,
is not well founded. There is no in
junction which prevents the company
from maintain iig a track along the river
bank into the city, but on Hip contrary
the Injuuctio'i ol which the company
complains (und wc believe there U
now but one injunction in
force) is emphatic in the declaration that
the company shall have the right to main
tain and opsrate a track Into the city, and
gives them tho right to move their track
back as often as may seem necessary. So
far us the people of Cairo and Alexander
county are concerned they are anxious to
litre the Caiio and St. Louis road run
their trains into the city, and as we have
said before they arc willing to give to
the company all the privileges nnd a Ivan
tages that lliey would give to any rail
road, but t lie management of the rond
has been such as to cause our people to
regard it with suspicion, and to place lit
tle reliance In either their profession's or
assertions. The Cairo and St. Louis road
can run their trains Into Cairo If they de
sire to do so, but the company docs not
seem anxious to take advantage ot the
privileges offered them.
G. D. Williamson's old nnd well-known
stand, 70 Ohio Levee, will hereafter be
known as the "Original Penny Store."
A new, delivery wagon will be placed on
the road in a tyw days, and goods will be
delivered In any and all parts ol the city
free ol charge. Orders lor goods may be
given to tlio driver of tho wagon, and
thus save the trouble of n trip to llie
store, and they will rcceivo prompt at

As we have used the word "Shoddy' a great many times and been asked the Dinn
ing ol the same, we here give the same, as lar as our limited education will allow.
"Shoddy" according to the views of a great many is n entirely new word bar
ing been Invented during our late war to desiguate a class ot men who were poor1
and without education, becoming suddenly very rich through Immense government
contracts ; but when the word Is used in reference to goods, Webster tells us it lit
"()!d woolen cloth and raluse goods torn into Sbrci In a mill, and rt post lute vara
with the addltioD of a little Iresh wool. lomuioudi." '
But, then, Welwder was not a clothier, and did not live In the aga when tbere
were "ways that were dark aud tricks that were vain," and consequently could
not give a correct definition.
"Shoddy" In the German 9,"Trutnnur-lU," which means, "the remains,
scraps of wool made Into fresh cloth." To get the correct definition w must go
back to ihat most ancient ami expressive language man has ever produced, the
"Hebrew." in the time when tlio Jewish religion was in its zenith, we see that
the Priests ami lligh-l'riests were forbidden to wear !n the sanctuary anything that
resembled "Shoddy," (or what is culled iu the Hebrew "SchaintM',) garments com
posed of "linen ami cotton, cotton and wool, or anything ol two different products,"
lor it was considered unholy to wear "Shoddy Goods" during devotion. '
So you will perceive that the word is not new but was used before tbe Chris
tlan era. Ol course Uie (roods were used to such an extent that It required law to
keep It from being used in the Temple. ,rm ,
This class ot goods is manufactured and sold in large quantities to-day right, In
our midst ; we raise our voice In condemnation thereof, and tell the publlo wbal It
is. Beware. Buy no Shoddy goods, tor they are not cheap at any prlc; Shun a
house which keeps, or is even suspected of keeping the same. We were the first la
tills city to raise our voice against ir, tor we discovered that It was difficult to sell
"pure and holy" garments while "Shoddy " goods were in the market. .
