The entertainment given last even
lng at the rooms ot Mr. Hyslop by the
ladies society of the Presbyterian church,
drew out a more than usually large num
ber ot people on such occasions. l)ur
lng the evening the company was enters
tained with some excellent music by
Mrs. Lansden, and Misses Morris and
K&stman, and Messrs. W. JI. Morris and
John Aisthorp. Jler. Mr. George, by
request, repeated bis lecture entitled the
"Ears ol K!ng;Mldas," whclh was listen d
to with atteuiion and pleasure by all
present. All In all the entertainment
was one of tho pleasantot yet giver, by
the ladles society, and when we tuy that
wc say a good deal, tor all their entertain
ments are first-class.
The Sui seems to doubt the statement
made by us In yesterday mornings Bui,
lktin that In certain contingencies Mr.
A. Comings will be an applicant lor tl e
position ol superlntendantof the Cairo
public schools, and says, in substance,
that it '-does not believe Mr. Comings
ever spoke to us on the subject." This
is true. Mr. Comings has never fpoken
to ns about tht Rfiilf U we have the
word ot others to wliOtQ he
has spoken, and solicited their assistance
to secure the position for him. But what
of all this! 'We do not consider it
strange that Mr. Comings should be an
aspirant lor the position ot superinten
dent of the schools. He certainly has a
right to setk the position, and bis claims
should and no doubt will receive re
spectful consideration; and It be can con
vince the board that he possesses the re
quite qualifications to till the position)
he should stand an equal chance with all
other candidates tor the professorship.
-In another place we print a com
munication on the subject ot electing a
woman t tho olHce of school director.
The writer ot the communication Intl-
ma Mrs. Safford does not spend
her time in Cairo. While it is true that
since the death of her husband Mrs
Safford has spent much ,of her time
with Iriends and relatives in tbe east,
Cairo Is still her home, and she will in
short time within the next week or
ten days, return to the city to remain.
While we admit that there arc a number
ot ladles in tho city who would make
efficient and capable members ot the
board ot directors, we believe Mrs. Sal
ford the peer of auy of. them, and that
il elected she will give more time and at
tention to the schools than almost any
other lady could or would. No one who
knows Mrs. Candee will deny that she
would grace the office -ol director, but we
do not believe that stie would, under
tho circumstances, allow her name to be
used in that connection.

tho Bubjoot of Their Mem
agement. H, II. II. Cande uneaUd for
(School Director. k .
To the Editor of thtBl'U.fm;
Dbar Sib :-Pleae allow mo apace to
say a few words to those ot my follow,
citizens who have so much to say in op
position to our public schools as now
conducted. It it not to the tax-payers
that I desire to address mv remark ; It
Is to the non-tax-paylng community
tbe men who have children to educate,
but who contribute little or nothing in
tbe way of taxes to the support ol tbe
school. It is Indeed strange to me that
the men who pay no taxes should find
fault with the public schools. The Idea
that I wish to Impress upon the niinds of
the suiull tux-payer and tho man who
pay no taxes at all (aud I am one ol this
class) is this : That so long as the
men who do pay tho taxes do not coin
plain of the cost of keeping up our public
schools, wc certainly have no right to, I
have four childron and three ot tliem are
constant attendants at one or the other
ol our schools; yet I pay, for all pur
poses, less than five dollars in taxes. I
know that my children receive an equal
showing In tbe schools with those whoso
parents are richer than 1 am, and that
they are receiving a better education than
I could afford to give them were I
compelled to send them to a select or
"pay schoot." I do think that if the
poorer claas ot our citizens tho men,
who likely myself, have to work from
"early down to starry night" lor.a sup
port tor themsilves and families could
only view this matter in a proper light
-without prejudice, they would regard
our public schools as a "God send" to
them and theirs, and not find fault with
their management. 1 have given this
matter a good deal ot thought, and the
more 1 tbluk of it the more thankful I
am that our schools arc what they are,
and that it costs me so litt'.e for the edu
cation that I am enabled to give my
children through them. I believe this
is the spirit in which tbe non-taxpaying
portion of our community should view
this subject, and that it Is to their Inter
ests to see that our schools do not retro

MRS. II. H. CAXDEK KOR SCHOOL DIRKC-
Editor HtiLi.K i in : Since the people
seem anxious to have a woman on the
schoolboard, why not propose one who
has her children in the school, and who
spends her time in Cairo ?
While we all heartily accord to Mrs.
Safford her many excellencies and vir
tues, we must admit there are many
others who would probably be better
adapted to a public ntllce, Among such,
let me suggest, is -Mrs. H. JI. Candee.

The State JtfjMtr of Tuesday gives tbe
following account ol Mrs. Pr. Wardner's
Visit to Springfield, and tbe address de-
liverjd there by her on Mondy evening:
Tba senate chamber of tie state house
wan tilled last nigbt by tbe ladies ot Spring
field, to hear tbe address of Mrs. Dr.
Wardner, principle ot tbe Illinois ludustri
(Ucbool lor girls, upon the o'joctot that
iOBiUuiioo, and Its claims upon tbe public.
Mrs. W. was Introduced by Col. O. II.
Harlow, who briefly explained the object
of tbe meeting to te to render such assist
ance to that school as mk'bt seem meet al
ter bearing Mrs. Wardner's adores!.
Mrs. W. then gave a statement of the
aims and objects of the school. At a meat
iDg of the VV cman's Centennial association
ot Illinois, held In this city, in .lanuary
1877, it was found that there was a surplus
of l.'KKl in tbe bands of the treasurer, and
after discussing what should be done with
the surplus, it was decided to u it in es
tablishing an industrial school for girls, and
a committee was appointed to draft a plan
for such school, 'i'bat committee reported
apian and constitution, which was subse
quently approved ana adopted. It con
templated tbe establishment of a home and
school tor nomeiets anu rnenoiess gir;n,
those who were without natural guardians,
and who would be likely to become vicious
and depraved for the want of proper
guardianship. The achool is now in op
eration, located at South Evanston, Cook
county, anu lias some w inmates, irom an
parts of tbe state, who are not only being
taught the common branches ot English
education, but are being instructed in all
tbe branches of housekeeping, anl domes
tic industry. There are application!) irom
all part of the state for the admission of
other elrls. but tbe institution Is abort of
funds, and bad to rely upon the charity ot
tbe public tor means to continue tne wont.
She reviewed, briefly the work that had
bean accomplished in otner states oy simi
lar institutions In saving girls from ruin,
contrasted wbat had been done for reform
atory Institutions for boys with that done
tor mr a. ana c osau witn an aDDeai to toe
ladles present to help their own sex as thev
had helped other. Mrs. W. spoke with
an earnestness and eloquence that elicited
freauent applause, and .inconcluaion an
nounced that she would meet all ladies In
terested in tbe work, at the residence of
Col, Harlow, at half past nlua o'clock this
After a lew remarks by Col. Harlow,
Gov. Culloni was callad for. He most
cordlallv endorsed the work in which Mrs
Y. was engaged, and believed It would
be but a short lime until the state would
take cbarse ot that werk. There were
over 2,100 men and boys now In the orisons
and i ralorm scbooL and but 2it wo
men, and he felt assured had; tbe homeless
waits been cared lor there wouia not do
one woman in orison, and not one-tentn In
brothels that Uiero now ts. He nledged.his
assistance, as a cltisen and as executive of
tne state, to aia tne women ot Illinois in
tuts great work.
At the conclusion of the governor's re
marks a collection was taken up, and the
proceeds, some fin, handed to Mrs. W .

They incur a tremendous risk who so
journ or emigrate to reside in districts
where malarial disease is prevalent,
without medicinal means of fortifying
their systems against the periodic
scourge. The danger to bilious subjects,
and to those who lack bodily stamina, Is
particularly serious. A preventivo and
curative agent of known anti-malarial
edcacy should be frequently used and
constantly kept at hand by such persons,
and on none can they reply with such
certainty ot protection and aid as Hos
