become popular with Cairo people who
Iresjuent such resorts. Mr. Parker so
licits the patronage ot the public general

Texth Street. The oorner of Tenth
street and Ohio Levee has for some time
been dangerous for the passageot vcbi
clts.owingto the sinking of the celling of
the city pump room; and the Impassibility
ot using that street has been quite an in
convenience to our draymen. Although
the street ha; been impossible for some
time, we believe the city authorities have
done nothing In regard to the matter.
Why not ? Tenth street Is otherw ise one
of the best streets leading to the levee,
and should be attended to immediately.
Police Court. Lu Grant, a colored
boy about nineteen years of age, was
before Judge Bird yesterday on a charge
of being drank and disorderly. On
Tuesday night late Grant went to the St.
Charles hotel and kicked up a row with
the colored help there. Officers Sargent
and McCarthy dropped on Grant and
took him in. Judge Bird fined him ten
dollars and costs and sent him to labor
on the streets for seventeen days. A
white man named O'Brien was arrested
by the same officers for being drunk and
disorderly. O'Brien was fined twenty
dollars and trimmings, and sent to labor
on the streets. This was the sum total
of the police business transacted yester
day. Mrs. Ai.vord's Lectures. The first
of the series of lectures by Mrs. G. G Al
vord will be delivered this evening at the
residence ot Col. 1. B. Hudson, corner ot
Sixth and Walnut streets. As tho pro
gramme published elsewhere says, "Mrs.
Alvord Is a tine scholar and a most able
writer,' and there is no doubt that
her lecture will be Interesting as
well as instructive. The subject
ei her lecture will be " The Sultan ol
the ottoman Empire," and in the light
of events now transpiring, which may
prove the downfall of that empire, the
lecture will be doubly interesting to all
readers ot history, past and present. The
benefits accruing lrom these lectures will
go to the Woman's Club and Library

AS atsgruceiui a scene as we ever saw
was that of a drunken negro yesterday
afternoon, shouting, cursing and expos
ing his person. He was permitted to go
the entire distance from the corner ol
Eighteenth street and Commercial to the
Custom house, where he was taken charge
of by negro friends. We liavo lately
seen so much disorderly and Indecent
conduct by drunken persons who have
not been punished for sholr behavior,
that wo are notonly disgusted, hut have
been forced to the belief that a
few more police officers would not be a
badthlngior theoity. Suoh conduct on
our public streets as above referred to,

Circuit Cocri-Tbi Pillow Mcr.
did Trial. Ia the circuit court yester
day the end was reaohed In the trial of
the young man Mayfleld on a charge of
assault to murder. After a somewhat
lengthy trial and several big speeches,
one by Judge Green and another by Hon.
D. T. Linegar Inbehalf of the defendant,
the jury became convinced that Mayfleld
was more sinned against than having
sinned, and they concluded that It would
be s good thing to turn him loose, and
they did so. The witnesses In the Pillow
case having arrived, the case was called
and the trial commenced. Hon. D. T.
Linegar Is defending Pillow, and Comity
Attorney Mulkey prosecuting. The en
tire day from about eleven o'clock till
the adjournment of court last evening
was spent in selecting a jury, notwith
standing the fact that upwards ol eighty
persons were examined, only seven
were accepted and sworn in.
The case will undoubtedly continue the
balance ot tho week, as there are quite
a large number of witnesses
to be examined, and acting under this
belie! Judge Baker last eyening dis
charged the regular panel of Juryman
from further service. A new Jury will
be sworn on Monday morning. The
following are -the names ot the seven
men sworn as jurors In the Pillow case :
J. H. Parks. Chas, Mehner. jr., Chae.
Cherry, John C. Atcher, W. B. Houe
man, W. E. Gholsen and Richard
Murphy. It is hardly probable that there
will be any evidence taken In the ease
before this afternoon.
TIIK BCABO.IH WHY
All Should Buy tbelr Groceries) froru
Peine V Itlrd.
Below we give a number ot reasons
why people should buy their groceries
from Pettis & Bird :
1st. Because theirstocks Is the lurges',
freshest and choicest in the city.
2nd.-Bccause they sell goods of every
kind cheaper than any other house in the
3rd. Because they deliver goods more
promptly and in better shape than any
other house in thu city.
4th. Because they keep the most com
plete stock, and persons desiring to
purchase different kinds ot goods are Dot
compelled to go elsewhere because
Messrs. P. & B. have not got the goods
These we consider substantial reasons
why our readers should buy their goods
of Pettis & Bird,
Comer 14th st. and Washington avenue,
