Otir 1,000 Visitors Present.
At the last regular meeting of tho Ho
form Club, the mangers concluded to give
a lunch on New Year's day, from 9 a. in.
to 10 p. ra., similar to the one spread
on Christmas, and committee consisting
ot Messrs. C. rink. K. Green, rV. 11.
Morris, Fred Smith and Geo. Olmsted
was appointed to make such arranges
meats as they deemed necessary.
To say that tbo committee performed
their duty faithfully, Is hardly necessary, '
as both citizen and stranger were lavish
In their expression of approval. We are
informed that the work ot tho committee
was an easy one, as all they bad to do
Was to answer tbo question, "what do
you want," aud their wants were sup
piled. Again wo are compelled to use
the oft repeated expression, "Cairo peo
ple never half way do anything" they
always "go the whole hog."
. By 9 a. m. the tables were spread with
a bounteous lunch consisting in part of
ten boiled ham, rJflty lbs. boiled corned
beef, six gallons pickles, thirty dozen
baker's bread, biscuit by the peck, home
made loaves ol bread, hot rolls, crackers,
boiled tongue, roast beet and turkeys,
cakes and the balance ot the etceteras
necessary to make a table complete, while
lor drinking purposes fifty lour gallons
ol coffee was consumed. The day was
one ol the pleasantest, and the attend
ance was simply immense.
The wants of oyer six hundred persons
were supplied from the lunch tables
(more like a complete hotel dinner than
a lunch), and no ono went away hungry,
and the fragments, not quite seven bask
ets full were gathered up and given to
During day the 312 visitors registered
their names, which was scarcely one
third of the number present.
We are requested by the committee to

Geo. Chrismao, Ed White, Frank Har
man, James Kois, John Cornell, Mr.

ous citizens of Cairo who so freely fur
nished the eaUbles and drinkables. Ta
ken all in all, this was one of the most
enjoyable occasions ever had in Cairo,
and one long to be remembered, and
will most certainly result in securing
large accessions to the already lengthy
roll ot members ot the Cairo Temper
