The manager, of this company, anxi
ous to excuse their miserable manage
merit of its affairs, seek to give to the
public a reason for their short-comings
not founded in' tact; and the Jouceboro
Gazette, while pretending to blame Can
da and his people, falsely Insinuates that
a certain coal firm of Cairo is throwing
impediments in the way ol the little badly
managed road tor the purpose of keep
ing out of this market
the Big Muddy coal. Our
people will be astonished by this ass
sertlon. While the little road was run
ning in its little way there was not more
Big Muddy coal brought to Cairo than is
now being brought, and that kind ot coal
never sold at lower figures then now. Big
Muddy coal can be brought as quickly
and as cheaply by the Grand Tower and
Illinois Central roads as by the little bad
ly managed road ol fanda and his peo
ple, who are the littlest baddest manager!
any raliread big or little ever before
had. Big Muddy, which is not one whit
better than Paradise coal, is told by the
Cairo City Coal Company, which Is
probably the ''great monopoly" at which
the Vaiette in Miootlnz its haphazard,
shafts. This company 'a profits,
by the sale of Big Muddy,
has done nothing to keep tbe Cairo and
St. Louis road from carrying it to Cairo,
and has no interest that would justify it
in doing so. It now obtains tills Big
Muddy coal over the Illinois Central at
figures as low as it could get that kind
ot coal oyer the St. Louis road, and sells
it at not one cent more profit than It sold
the same kind of coal while the little
road was being operated. The Gatetlt
doct the C. C. C, C, an injustice when it
attempts to throw upon that company
blame that should rest on no other
shoulders than those of Cauda and his
people, who are at once incompetent,
untruthful and dishonest.
Card From Mr. Farnbakar.
Editor Bulletin: It is pretty hard
for me a strong, but not a fanatic tem
perance advocate, to listen to and bear the
rumors which are now In circulation
about town in reference to what I said of
a very particular friend of mine, and a
wearer of the red ribbon, in one of our
saloons Sunday night. It is reported
that I said, "I saw him Intoxicated last
Sunday night." That is false. I said,
"From what I heard, the description
given by four responsible gentlemen,
that it must be , and I am
very sorry ol it." One
fellow, with more wind than brains, who
took itich'a lively interest In denouncing
me, I am under many obligationi to; and
stand ready at any time to place my tem
perance record beside bis.
Ever since I lett school some fourteen
years ago 1 have been a temperance man
and writer. When I heard ol Dr. Rey
nolds m connection with Cairo I waa very
much pleased, and prolered my literary
services to the Cairo press which was
accepted time and time again during his
stay here. Mr. Reynolds came
in my store and thanked mo
kindly tor my literary efforts,
and referred to one communication In
particular tour or five times during the
temperance mooting In the tobacco wai e
house. It does not seem reasonable that I
would be guilty ot circulating false re
ports about a man a friend especially
when 1 have such a record.
For tho truth of my statements cons
cerning my temperance literature furn
lined tho Cairo press, 1 refer your read
ers to you and, to my friend, Mr. D. L.
Davis, of The Hun.
. Sol. Karnbaier,
Cairo, Dec 3, 1S77. :
We do not hesitate to testily to tho
truth of the statements made by Mr.
Farnbaker. During Dr. Reynold's work
In Cairo Mr. Farnbaker wrote a number
el artlolet lor the Cairo papers, and
la all of them advocated the temperance
cause; and further, we do not believe he
would knowingly circulate a false report
about anybody much loss about tha per
son to whom bis commumaaaon reiert.

As wc have u;cd the word "Shoddy " a
lug ot (he same, we here five the same, as
"Shoddy" according to tho views of a great many Is n entirely new word hat
intr been invented durlnir our late war to designate a class ot men who were boot
and without education, becoming suddeuly
contracts ; out wuen tne woru is uscu in
"Old woolen clnths and refii'e goods torn into fibre In a mill, and re.'pua Into yarn
with the addition ot a little Imb wonl.-himmonda."
But, then, Webster was not a clothier, and did not live in the age when there
were "way that were dark and'trlcks that were vain," and consequently could
not give a correct definition.
"Shoddy" In tho German is TViomukMI 'Me," which means, "the remains,
scraps of wool made into fresh cloth." To get the correct definition we mutt go
back to that most ancient and expressive language man has ever produced, the
'Hebrew." in the times when the Jewish religion was in its zenith, we see that
the Priests and High-I'rlests were forbidden to wear In the sanctuary anything that
resembled "Shoddy," (or what Is called in tho Hebrew "Sehadnea") garments com
posed of "linen and cotton, cotton and wool, or anything of 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 the Chris
tian era. Of course the goods were used to such an extent that It required a law to
keep it from being tned in tho Temple.
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 what it
is. Beware. Buy no Shoddy goods, lor they are not cheap at any price: Shun a
house which kocps, or is even suspected of keeping the same. We were the first in
this city to raise our voice tgalnst It, for we discovered that it was dlfnoult to sell
"pure and holy" garments while "Shoddy" goods were in the market.
