All M r,a lil Buy their flrorerle from

Below we give a number ot reasons
w hy people should buy their groceries
from Pettis A Bird :
) Jt. Because their stocks Is the largest,
Ireiihet and choicest in the city.
2iid.-BecaiiPC 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
plute stock, and persons desiring to
purchase different kinds of goods are not
:euiplled to go elsewhere because
Messrs. P. & B. have not got the goods
These we consider substantial reason i
why our render should buy their goods

worthy the attention of the school board ;
and it " Mechanic" feels himself agrieved
he should have the manliness to fight his

Announcement Extraordinary !
HON. GEO. R. WENDLING,
Will deliver his great lecture,
A HtPLY TO IXUEKSOLL FROM A
At the Atheneum, Tuesday eve., Feb. 19.
As a fascinating orator, logical reason
er, an accomplished scholar and a peers
less and invincible assailant, Wendllng
is, at the bar and In politics, the peer of
Hon. George it. Wendllng delivered
his great lecture in reply to Ingersoll,
at Library Hall, in the city ol St, Louis,
January 15th, 1S78, to an audience of
over 2,000 ot the most cultured and In
telligent people ot that city, and hun
dreds stood In the aisles during its de
livery, not a person, to our knowledge,
leaving the hall. The result was a com
plete succes, culminating in a perfect
ovation. He was immediately oflered
f .WO.OO to repeat tin. same lecture in that
city, which ho did, with similar results.
A third invitation has already followed
this, and he has since received invitations
from such cities as Mt, Vernon, Bloom-
Inetou, 111., Lafayette, Indianapolis, lnd.,
Chicago, Milwaukee, New York, Wash
ington, D. C, etc.
Mr. Wendling being an eminent law
yer, a ripe scholar, a profound thinker j
and logician, he is espeulJly fitted to
answer Col. Ingersoll in his assaults upon
Father O'Hollora.n. Father O'Hoi-!
loran, whom our readers will remember
as the former pastor of the Ninth street
Catholic ; church o( this city, la doing
good work In the temperance cause.
We find by a special to the St, Louis
Republican that at Kirk wood, Mo., he
was greeted by I the largest audience
which ha3 gathered there since the .in
auguration of the temperance move
ment. In conclusion, the Republican
says : " He held the people In wrapt at
tention for an hour and a halt and he
would have been agreeably listened to
much longer. He appealed to all classes
and all ages, and was very direct In .his
remarks when speaking of the responsN
bility ot the moderate drinkers. One
hundred and six more baye been added
to the list, making a total of over 760
who have now signed the pledge, We
Intend making it unanimous here. A
reading-room and coflce-house have been
established, for which a liberal contri
bution was taken np."
A Preacher in Hocx. Solomon
Leonard is a colored divine of some
notoriety In this community. He was
at one time pastor ot one of the colored
churches In the corral!, but having a
quarrel with his deacons was dismissed,
and for the last year or two has not been
regularly engaged as a pastor, and has
done almost any kind of work he could
get to do. A few nights ago Officers
Cain and Axley caught Leonard In the
nefarious business of stealing coal from
an Illinois Central coal flat standing on
the track In the vicinity ot Twentieth
street, snd he was tried before Judge
Bird and in default of one hundred dol
lars ball was sent to the county Jail to
await the action ot the grand Jury.

nouncement elsewhere In this morning's
Bcllitin it will be learned that Hon.
Ceo. R. Wendllng, who by his lecture
In answer to K. Q. ingersoll has within
so short a time gained such wide spread
notoriety, has been engaged to deliver
his lecture in this city on Tuesday even
ing, February 19th. Mr. Wendllng de
livered his celebrated lecture "The Stone
Ezel," In this city some three or four
years ago, and Judging from the reputa
tion he then won there is little room to
doubt that on the occasion ot his return
to Cairo, he will be greeted by an m
