Among lha Ocatf Vakllaroa
OI the past, bow many bogus nostrums
may be numbered! Beginning their
careers with a trt nnnduous flourish ot
trumpets, blazoned for a time in the
public prints and on flaming posters,
soon, but not too soon, were they rele
gated to the llmbe ot things lost on
earth. Hut Hosteller's Stomach Bitters
is a, living and thriving remedy. It goes
on curing and to cure. Neither under,
hand nor open competition affect it. On
the contrary, contrast with interior rival
preparations only increases Its popular
ity. It has been repeatedly Imitated,
but without success. Counterfeits of It
have been surreptitiously introduced,
but havj lallcn flat. Everywhere it en
trenches itself in the confidence of the
people; and well it may, tor it is a
thoroughly reliable Invigorant of the
feeble, banishes dyspepsia and consti
pation, braces the nerves, cures rheu
matic ailments and kidney complaints,
aud eradicates and prevents intermittent
and remittent fevers.
The Morbid Hinaier.
Ail eminent clergyman once said that
a change of stomach and liver would
beiu-tit the morbid sinner almost as
much as a change ot heart; yet many
still attribute an irritable temper and
morose disposition to the Ingenious
workings ot the devil, while they are
simply Hie symtpoms of dyspepsia, tor
pid liver, constipation, and general or
nervous debility, and are readily cured
by the ue of a few bottles of Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery and Pleasant
I'urgntivo Pellets. Some may be per
suaded into trying other remedies on the
plea that they are "cheaper" and "just as
good," but alter using a tew of the pecu
liar and heterogeneous combinations,
they usually prefer to return to a remedy
that has earned a reputation by reason
of Its merit. . Dr. Pierce's Family Medi
cines are prepared from the choicest ex
tracts, at ereat expense, and under the
immediate supervision of a skillful chem
ist, whose business It Is to know their
purity and strength; hence the success of
these remedies in overcoming disease.

Your Great Grandsuip: Permit
mo, before proceeding to the Interesting
part . ot the evening's entertainment,
to say a few words. I will be as
brief as possible, as 1 see that our
worthy caterer has the eating part in
readiness. I little thought three
years ago, when this society commenced
their public displays thai I would see it
grow to the proportion it has attained,
or that this great success we have gain
ed would crown our efforts. Utile by
little. Tear by year," we have gradually
enthroned ourselves in the aflectlons,
resoect and confidence ot the people of
our city of Cairo, and 1 venture the as
sertion that toiday no society In our
city stands higher in that respect tban
the Mystic Krew. We have all worked
talihfullv. Each has manfully perform-.
ed the duty assigned him, and the result
is, ttiat to-uay. as a society, our cretin
stands A No. 1, monetary and other
wise. I believe it was rbiup ot Aiace-
doa that said: "I would sooner have an
army of sheep led by a lion than an

Response by Mr. John H.
To the first toast. "The Mystic krew,"
Mr. Holmes responded in the following
remarks: - J '
Qintlkmam: In response to the toast,
Kulghts of the Mystio Krew of Comus. 1
think It wottid be proper to give: the hls
tory of the Krew trom Its formation
until the present time, especially as the
society has, in the past few years, sprung
Into considerable prominence,; and may
now be considered one of tbo settled In
stitutions of the city.
The date, when the Krew came Into
existence l.i Cairo, la. the 8th "of Marco.
18C8, and this date Is anuualiy celebrated
by the Krew In a mariner peculiar to this
society, Gu the evening ot that .date a
party of young mon ot our city, er rath

fifteen or twenty, were assembled In Mr.

come are sun la uairo, more scattered
over the country, others In Europe, and
some are dead. One or two yearly meet
logs were held after that, snd tho birth
of the society duly celebrated, but: In
saceeedlBg years i the . celebra
tion t of the , tb wm dropped,
or the time ol the colsbration lapsed
through forgetfulnesa on the part of toe
members until the year 1878. In January
of that year some ot the members be
thought of the 0th ot March, and after
considerable difficulty a quorum was got
together, when It was determined to re
organize, receive aud Initiate new mem
bers, and celebrate MardI Gras by a
public display and ball. After several aN
tempts to get a quorum, the following
young men met at the rooms of Mr. C.
fiardy and reorganized the Krew on Its
present basis: They were Messrs. C.
Hardy, C. Gilbofier, C. S. Delay. A.
Swoboda, W. Mason, Sam Williamson,
ai. o. Lettcovicn, uarrts scbultz, &d.
Dezonia and S. M. Lovltt.
.New members infused new life into the
society, and they mado a very creditable
display on Mardi Gras, 1876,whlch wound
up wun a masquerade Dan at Mugo's
hall, Capt. I'hil': Howard acting as king.
Mr. C. S. Delay was elected G. G. M. at
the annual election held alter tbo reor
ganisation, followed by your humble
servant, which place ot trust t nave tne
honor to till at tbo present time. In 1877
tne Krew gave a fine street parade, with
Mr, Herman ivevy as king, and wounu up
with a masnueiade ball at the St. Charles
hotel, which was tho largest
and grandest . ever given in
Cairo, the . spacious dining ball
being tilled to overuowing. t inaaciauy
the ball was a success, the Krew clearing
over and above all expenses $123.
The Krew becoming elated overtneir
past success, they determined to cele
brate our nation's birthday, and ior that
purpose procured the nse of St. Mary's
park, that being deemed the most suit
able place for a public demonstration.
The morning of the Fourth was heralded
by the tiring of cannon, one hundred and
and first birthday of our national lode-.
pendence. At 10 a.m. the Krew, to the
number ot sixty, in a neat and tasteiui
uniform, headed by the National band.
paraded the principal streets and
marched to the nark. At 11 a. m. ti e
ceremonies werecosmeneed by the read
ing ot the declaration of Independence
by Miss Katie Alvord, which was rens
dered in a moat able manner, followed
by singing by the glee club and speeches
by Hon. D. T. Llnegar,.W. U. Morris
and others. At the conclusion of the
ceremonies the festivities commenced,
consisting ot dancing, sack races, horse
and mule races, wheelbarrow races,
climbing greased pole and other amuse
ments too numerous to mention, and at
night gave the finest display ot fire
works ever sees south ot Chicago.
It was estimated that not less than o
000 strangers visited the city on that day.
All railroad and steamboat lines gaye

in the evening there was not lees than
7,000 people in tbe park.
Tne expenses or tho ceieoranon to uie
Krew was about 900 dollars, with net a
cent In the treasury, the receipts lalllng
short about 90 dollars, which balance the
Krew paid without a murmur, being
contented with knowing that they had
carried the celebration to a successtul
Mardi Gras. 1878. found us with an
empty treasury, but nothing daunted.the
Krew determined to eclipse all former
efforts, and as the saying is trust to luck
tor the come out. 1 1 will be unnecessary
tor me to explain the nature of tho cele
bration or the grand 'display on the
streets and grand ball at the St. Charles,
and of the Immense concourse of people
assembled here from tbe surrounding
country to witness one of the finest dis
plays ever given m fcgypt,
but enough to say that it was a
success as lar as me ceicoration,
but financially it was a tailure, the
Krew losing about one hundred aud
eighty -nine dollars, but we do not com
plain, lor we had the satisfaction ot ae
cornplishlng our purpose, giving a grand
display, bringing tnousanas oi strangers
to our city, and benefiting our mer
chants thousands of dollars.
The Krew have demonstrated their
ability to conduct such celebrations to a
successful termination, and witn tne co
operation of our citizens we promise
that the coming Mann uras, reoruary
25th, 1879, shall eclipse all our tormcr
In behalf ot the Krew, permit me to
extend thanks to W.H. Morris for tbe
successful manner in which he person
ated King Comus, and to Mr. Henry
Winter, mayor ol the city ol Cairo, also
to the ;brotucrs and all others through
whose efforts the Mardi Gras was made
Gentlemen, I thank you loryour kind
The second toast, "King Comus and
Mordi Gras in Cairo," which was set
down to Mr. W. H. Morris, was passed
ovtr, owiiig to that gentleman's absence.
To the third toast, "Temperance ; tho
Red Kibbon Club," Mr. Hawkins re
sponded. He illustrated, In on exceeds
Ingly happy manner, the change wrought
In the sentiments of the members ol the
Krew by instituting a comparison bo
tween the banquet given a year ago and
the present one Then vinous and malt
liquids were placed upon the board und
partaken of by most of thoso present;
now lemonade and coffee ruled the feast,
and should any one have tho temerity to
Introduce tho "flowing bowl," be would
be, in street parlance, summarily
bounced." The gentleman concluded
bis remarks by an earnest appeal for tho
.. The . . lourlh toast, "Cairo
and Its commercial advantages,"
to which Hon. Henry Winter was Invited
to respond, was passed over, that gentlos
man being absent from the city on offi
To "Tho Press," the fifth toast, Capt.
W.M. Williams responded as follows :

The sixth toast, "Fun and Frolic," in
the absence ot Mr. Mills, was responded
toby Mr. Oberly.but as it would perhaps
appear immodest, and in questionable
tasto for 'Oberly'g brothoisinslaw, who j
edits tho paper owncu by Oberly and
which is printed in tbe 'house in which
Oberly lives" to make any comment
whatever upon what Gberly may do or
say, we must content ourselves with
simply saying that ttie effort was well,
no; be just spoke.
At the conclusion of the responses to
tbe regular toast, the band discoursed
several popular airs, while the Glee
Club, composed of Messrs. Frank Walk
er, George M. Fry, Georgo Fraser,
Henry Haird, J. B. Letcher and Fred.
Kent regaled the happy party with "See
that My Grave's Kept Green," "Little

Sau?, Wm. Hawkins and Ed. Dczonia. In
tbe order given, and each briefly respond
Mr. Black then in a little speech said
he would close the festivities with a song
by tbe Glee Club, and we wish here to
remark that whatever , may be
thought ot "the . brother-in-law
who edits the paper owned by Oberly,
end which 1 printed In the bouse in
which Oberly lives," lor expressing any
opinion as to O.'s forcnslo efforts, the
most carping and fastidious critic of
Journalistic proprieties will hardly quesN
Hon the right of the brother-in-law to
record tbe fact that Mr. O. led the Glee
olub; that he filled the night and several
blocks In the vicinity of the banquet hall
with music, utterly regardless of the
cares infesting the day; that his auditors,
imitating tbe example ot the Arabs, got
up and silently slid away, leaving the
gentleman, at twelve o'clock the monarch
of all be surveyed. The meter in the
