These gentlemen deserve this rccognU
tion from the public for the interest they
have manlKted In every measure cal
culated to promote tho efficiency of our
school system. For the position made
vacant by the death of Mr. Saflord several
gentlemen have been mentioned through
the newspapers aud upon the streets,
cither of whom would reflect credit upon
tbe board, and prove a valuable acquisi
tion to its council. Tbe late Mr. Saf
ford, although childless himself with
out the Inicntivo which excites interest
in the parent was a nianlllcent and des
voted friend of public education. His
utter unselfishness ia all the Btlairs of
life was nowhere better illustrated than
in this. Our public schools
were his pet. Upon every, matter per
taining to their condition or Improvement
bis advice was always sought; and his
Individual uctiou toward them was as
generous as his advice was valuable
While Cairo recognized In him a model
citizen, the friends of the public schools
knew In him a benefactor. What more
appropriate selection could be nwde for
the vacancy than the lady who, by virtue
of her relations with him, knew his every
thought on the subject ; who sympa-'
thlzed with and encouraged him in all
his benevolent designs and actions? Ot
Mrs. Saflord's qualifications to be her
husband's weeessor In the School Board
there can not be two rational opinions,
If she tan be Induced to accept tho posi
tion, tho people ot Cairo, by placing
her there, will be paying a deserved tril-
uto to tbe memory ot one ot their bct
citizens and a gracious compliment to
the lady herself, while conferring it last
ing benefit on tho public schools.
