froHfoneof our exchange, is commend
efl to the prayertul.considcration ot Cairo
business men and merchants generally :
You can't eat enough this week to last
you a ytar, uud you can't advertise on
that plan either. People that advertise
o-ily once lu three months lorget that
inont loiks cannot remember anything
longer than seven days. No bell can
ring so loud as a good advertisement.
People will believe what they see rather
than what they hear. Quilting adver
tising in dull times is like tearing out a
dam because the water is Iow;eiiherplan
will prevent good times ever coming.
An Indian once tried the soltne,-8 ol
leathers by laying one on a rock and
stretching himself upon it. There are
some who try the virtue of advertising
on the same plan. It is true of advertis
ing as in anything alse in lite, if it is
worth doing at all, it I worth doing
well. Bread is the staff ot human I lie
and advertising is the staff of the lite of
Cairo, Ills,, Monday Evkxinb, i
Dec. 31, 1377.
The weather, though somewhat colder
than at the date of our last report, Is
still too warm for this season of the year
and its effects on all branches ot business
are- apparent. There is an unusually
light demand for bay, corn and oats for
feeding purposes, and this must be at
tributed to tho weather which renders
heavy feediug unnecessary. The road
everywhere are In the worst possible
condition, and farmers cannot market
thrir surplus corn, hay and oats. It Is
difficult to predict what the next lew
days may show but there are kidications
ol clear and colder weather.
All things considered, buslns is rea
sonably good, and Cairo merchants have
no more grounds tor complaint than
those of other cities. Business every
where Is dull, and Cairo is no exception
to the rule. Alter the hoi dy, however,
when affairs have as-umed their wonted
sway, we anticipate a livelier season In
Tho rivers, under the influence of the
late rains, have risen considerably, aud
there Is now an abundance ot water In
every direction. The movement ot
freights, however, have been retarded by
the bad weather.
