They were bound tor Texas, but

"Honesty is the be3t policy." Su
thinks Mr. Frank Haley, the popular up

ward found a pocket-book on his counter

he recognized as the property ot the
aforesaid colored man. The looser bad

soul made happy.
Sol. Smith Russell, with his excel

and a clever one. He has a face which
is wonderfully mobile, a figure well
adapted to his particular line of business,
and an amount of dry humor which Is
wonderful. In fact, we may say that dry
ness Is his peculiar characteristic. It is
not the broad, rich humor of the west ;
it is the bard, quaint, odd quality ot char
acter found la tho east, la trie peculiar
line ot business which Mr. Russell has
taken up, the temptation to introduce a
little coarseness must be very great, and
bis perfect freedom from even a suspicion
of such a thing Is certainly very much to
bis credit. His pirformanoe was one ol
the meit enjoyable we ban evar seen."

Cairo, Ills., Thursday Evr.wtNa,
Dec. 20, 1877.
Tho weather continues very warm and
pleasant in fact'rnore like May or June
than like December. The roads are in
excellent condition In all directions. Too
much of even a good thing is not always
best, however, and it is feared that If the
warm weather continues much longer tbe
growing wheat will havo grown entirely
out of proportion to the season. Already
in some places farmers are turning their
stock Into It.
As a whole business Is fair, and
Cairo is doing her full share
of trade There Is a good
demand for flour and oats, while corn
and hay are quiet with only a limited de
mand. Prices of flour are not to say
lower, though there Is a disposition
among holders to make concessions In
order to effect sales ot round lots. R.
ceipts are good and stocks fair. There is
an active demand for oats at 3829c with
but little on tbe market and receipts
light. Good old white corn is quoted at
4'243c, and good new white at 3940c;
while yellow and solt white are selling
all the way lrom 3G($39c. Receipts of
hay are moro liberal and
