THIS BEAftOSS WHY
All Should Boy their Groeerlea front
Below we give a number ot reasons
why people should buy their groceries
from Pettis & Bird:
1 st. Because their stocks Is the largest,
freshest and choicest In the city. -
2nd. Because 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 the city.
4th. Because they keep the most com
plete stock, and persons desiring to
purohase different kinds ot goodf are not
compelled to go elsewhere because
Messrs. P. & B. have not got the goods

why our readers should buy their goods

Jail Delivery. John W. Walker
and a young man named Foley, prisoners
It tho Alexander county jail, succeeded
in breaking out and making their escape
some time during Wednesday night or
Thursday morning. There U every rea
son to believe that tbeaprisoners bad as

not have succeeded in getting away. The
cell In which they were confined Is locat
ed directly under the hall dividing the
county clerks aad the county court rooms.
There are two windows to this eelL
both ot which are located under the steps
leading to the back court house yard.
The cell at b,est is not a strong one, and
Is usually used for the confinement of
prisoners charged with minor offenses.
By removingthe bricks from under one of
three windows spoken ot the prisoners

large enough to crawl through

Foley, one of the escaped prisoners, was
confined on a charge of petty larceny,

Editor Cairo Hilutim i
Being down In Clluton, Kentucky, last
Thursday, 1 attended what may be
called a "general" meeting of the Chris
tian churches of that city. While there,
statements were made by several minis
ters of dlOerent denominations, tor the
repltltlon and discussion of which I beg
for s small space in your columns.
Alter a talk on many different subjects,
the Rer. Mr. Evens, minister of the
Presbyterian church, said that the Jew
Ish people had always been disliked.
he disliked them. The second speaker
was the Rev. Mr, West, a Methodist mln
alwars would be disliked, and that
later, who In substance said the same,
but only a little more empbatlc-iaying
that be hated the Jews.
I was not only surprised but startled
by the thought that such language should
come from the mouths of men ol God-
men who should teach the lesson ot Him
who bade us love our enemies. But so
it is. There are still alive, I regret to
ay, men who are not fit to live In this
century tor whom the years ought to
roll back, so that they might be tumbled
out ot the Ian ot the Dresent into the
middle of the dark ages.
My dealings with Jews hare been num
erous, and I bare never found in tneir
speech or behavior anything that was
offensive or ungentleinanly. In short,
tbey are the most sober, most clean and
best behaved people ol all classes. As
busineei men, they are successful, ener
getic, independent and reliable. If this
Is the cause ot the reverend gentlemen's
dislike, or even hatered, there cause Is a
poor one. If they hate them because
Christ was crucified by the Jews, let me
ask tbem what would they have to
preach about it Christ bad not been cruci
Man's greatest hindcrance to the ac
quisition ol knowledge has always been
man. Blind believers and blind dis
believers hare always been the greatest
eurse ol the world, and too many narrow-minded,
prejudiced men, like the
Rev. West aud Rer. Evens, have always
presumed to teach belore they have
learned. Thanks to the Gods that the pre
ludlce and Ignorance ot such men are
buried with them in their graves. .
