The Casalac Klectlaa for Directors
WD II We Klet.
Cairo, March 30, 1878.
To Um KJilor of thi Cairo Bl-luti :
Dkar Sir : I see that official notices
posted up in different parts ol tbe city
announcing the tact tbat an election lor
three members ot tbe board of school di
rectors will take place within a lew days.
This being the case it is Important that the
friends ol our public school system should
be ''casting about" lor men who can All
the not very lucrative office of school
director with Intelligence, and at the
same time give to tt the time and
attention It deserves. I think I know of
several such men, but whi ther they can
be Induced to become candi'Iatcn, or allow
tbe use ol their names in connection
with the office ot school director, 1 do not
know. They have, with one excep
tion, had several years experience as
members of the board, and all reasonable
men acknowledge that they have made
excellent managers of our schools and
deserve tbe thanks of our people lor the
manner in which they discharged the
dutiea imposed upon them. We refer to
Mr. Korsemeyer and Capt. W. P. Halll-
day, whose terms are about to expire.
and unless tbey are re-elected they will
within the next month retire from service
on the school board. These gentlemen
are known to be deeply interested in our
schools, and to them we are indebted in
a great measure for the high standard
they have attained and tho
good name tbey bear abroad.
To my way ol thinking it would be a
calamity to retire these gentlemen trom
tbe school board. For tbe place made
vacant by the death of Mr. Saflord, I can
think ol no one who would or could fill
the place more satisfactorily than Hon.
John H. Obcrly. We all know tbat Mr.
O. takes a deep Interest In the success
of cur common schools, and I believe he
would make an active and capable mem
ber of the board. 1 oiler these sugges
tions because I am a friend of the schools
bavo children to educate, and desire
tbat tbe Cairo public schools shall take
no steps backward. T. B. R.
AND STILL ANOTHER.
To i n Elltor of ht Buusrw :
Dxas Six : Permit me to say a lew
words to my fellew-cltiiens through the
columns oltbeBcuxm. Though Dem
pcratlo In politics, the Bcl-
uctix has always treated the
claims ol our colored people, ''niggers"
If it suits better, with kindness and
consideration, and hence I ask this favor.
The colored people of the city are and
on this point I believe lam well posted
satlnfl'M, even well pleased, with tbe
educational advantages afforded them
under our present public school sys
tern and I believe a change
of directors at this time would result In
no good to our publlo schools generally
but more particularly to the colored
schools. Therefore I hope capt. Ham
day and Mr. F. Korsemeyer, whose terms
are about to expire and whose successors
will soon be elected, will become candi
dates for re-election. For the other place
on tbe board tbe vacaucy occasioned by
the death of Mr. Safford, we have no
particular choice, and would support
almost any good man for the place.

floute o( the. more extreme and impol
itic of the temperaix) advocate ot the
county have determined that the Urn
has come wheu It will do to mix politic,
tod temperance, and to make the issue at
tbe eltction this fall. At. a meeting ol
the Usuipsrance rguiiiliiou at Odve
Branch a lew days ago a series o
'whereases" and "resolves" were In
dulgtd lu, and a county convention
to nominate a ticket for county officers
was called to - meet at the

withal a very clever gentleman, A copy

tbe meeting oi the Cairo iemprance
Keform club on Friday sight,
when It became evident that the proposK
tlon to "mix temperance and politics"
In this county did not meet with tbe ap
proval ol the Cairo reformers, aud tbey
resolved to place themselves ou record In
opposition to the movement; and tbe fol
lowing resolutions offered by Capt. W,
M. Williams were unsnlmoudly adopted:
RuoUtd, That it is inconsistent with
the fundamental prluciples ot this organi
zation to countenance in any ruaunei any
movement whatsoever leiidiug to a legal,
political or sectarian interference wllb
those who may differ from us in the cause
ol teuiparunoe reform, aud that we rely
solely tor success upon tbe broad and in
teliiKent piattorm ol moral suasion and
correct deportment as becomes temper-)
Retolvtd, That an invitation be extend
ed to the delegate aud others who may
visit our city ou tbe 6th day ol April
next, to visit our hall and participate
with us In carrying- on tbe ood work on
tbe principles luecnbed upon our ban
ner, "Non-Legal," "Nonroliilcal" arid
Rctohtd, That a committee of Ave be
appointed by the president, ol which be
shall be the chairman, to meet the dele
gates on Uieir arrival and invite them to
1'be members of tbe Cairo club, al
most without exception, are opposed to
this movement and will have nothing to
do with it. They are wise, the effort
to combine politics and temperance will
surely mark tbe failure of the temperauce
cause', and the disruption ot the now
I prosperous Reform clubs.
Apples of Baio In Pictures of Rllvtr.
"A word fitly spoken Is like apples of
gold in pictures ol silver." When the
body lecomes diseased, the mind is
thereby necessarily influenced. National
wars, state dissensions, neighborhood
broils and family differences, are more
frequently than otherwise tbe result of
diseased and disordered constitutions
When tbe body Is sufferiLg, tbe mind,
acting iu sympathy, will become Irritated
and perplexed. When tbe physical sys
tern is in health, the mind perceives
things in tbeir true light, and the disposi
tion assumes a very aifterent
ptiase. Nothing more directly tends to
destroy the happy, cheerful disposition
ol a woman, and render ber peevish,
nervous, and fretful, than a constant en
durance of uterine disorders. The dis
eases peculiar to woman take away tbe
elasticity and bouyancy of health and re
duce her body and mind to a mere wreck.
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription Is a
real peacemaker in a family. No woman
suffering trom uterine disorders can af
ford to be without this remedy. Tbe
Favorite Prescription saves unnecessary
doctor bills, prevents divorces, wards off
suicides brings back buoyant, joyous
feelings, restores the woman to health,
and her family to happiness. .It Is sold
by all druggists.
