The committee of the city council,

tbe proposition recently made by the
railroad people '' to ' purchase certain
portions of the railroad strip on wblcb
they desire to build a freight bouse and
passenger depot, . Tbe matter was fully
discussed, but nothing definite was done.

further will be done In the matter for
the present at least. ,. ; ,.. v : :

Cairo can boast of three or four of
as fine mllinery establishment as any
city of her size in tbe State.', Indeed tbe
milinery trade forms a prominent feature
of the trade of tbe city, and thefmount
of goods in this line sold in Cairo dur
ing the year is greater than many per
sons are willing to believe. Among the
new establishments which deal exclu
sively in tbe milinery line we may men
tion the new and enterprising firm of
MissS. II. Carson & Co., Commercial
avenue opposite Winter's block. This
firm has just received a large and com
plete new stock, which they arc ready to
exhibit to those wishing to. purchase.
Their stock is all entirely new, fresh and
seasonable, and will be sold at the most
reasonable price. ' We bespeak' for the

referring to tbe concert recently given
there by a party of ladies and gentlemen
of this city, for the benetlt ot tbe Presby
terian church of that place, says : . , -
We lav rarely bad so genuine a treat
as tne concert given oy our Ualro irieuus
atUssery opera houso on Thursday
nlghc Mr. Shlck deserves a vote of
thanks forbksetlbrts In our behalf. The
smiling faces ot the audience show
ed that all were pleased, and tbe
excellent order that all wished to
see. It Is hard to make distinctions
where all are so very excellent. Each
one seemed the very best." The quar
tette, "Woodblrd," was beautilully ren
dered. The piano-solo, by Miss Ella
Kobblns, proved her a tine pianist.
Then, the ' Swallow's Farewell," In Miss
Morris' sweet clear soprano, and Miss
Eastman's musical alto was very tine
indeed. The applauso which greeted
Mr. AUtborpc's character son?, shows
we know how to appreciate a " dueced
clever" singer. Mrs. Lauaden, in her
beautiful, mellow, cultivated voice, gave
a song in Dante's language, the liquid
notes of which are melody themselves.
Tbe audience prolonged Its applause
until she reappeared aud gave us "Baby
Mine," a song sweet enough to touch
the most callous heart. Miss Katie
Msckey's piano solo, '"The German Na
tional March." was enthusiastically re
ceived. We were especially proud ot
her performance, as we claim her as a
former citizen. Mr. W. H. Morris was a
host in himself. His song, ' Oh. Fair
Dove; Ob, Fond Dove," was rapturous
ly encored, followed by an
oilglnaV German speech, which
was IrresUtably - comic, tils.
played his versatile talents. 'J ho solo by
IHss Leila Morris. "Who's at my win.
flow," touched the popular heart, and
they refused to eive her up until she
sang the story of the girl who gave a
sweet kiss because she had "nothing else
to do." I he beautltul song, "Sweet, by
and by," was beautilully sang.

To the Editor of the Cairo IKLLitm:
Dearsir:- The assumptlou ot Xon
Tax-payer, in your issue of this morning,
that, because one man happens to be bet
ter oil In this world's goods than another,
ho should control our schools and run
them as he sees lit, is preposterous. There
IS nothing in our laws or usage to war
rant any such conclusions. The schools
were originated to give all tho children
ot tbe state a common school education;
but, during lapse of time, It has come to
pass that certain costly branches have
been added-high schools, etc., and in
stead of giving our children a thorough
drilling in tbe common branches, they
are "crammed" with all sorts ot non
sense in order to fit them lor tbe- high
school, where some of the studies pur
sued are usually relegated to tho senior
year lo our best colleges mental philoso
phy for instance; and here the children
ot the rich man who can aOorJ to keep bis
children In school eight or ten years are
fitted for college at the public expense. It
is a known fuct that the average school
life of the children of the state is only
about four years, such being tho case
what Is tbe use of a high school. Let us
abolish it, thus reducing the burden of
taxes that oppress even tbe poorest of us.
I do not believe that the taxpayers who
control the schools are eo unselfish as
"Non-Taxpayer" would have us believe.
On the contrary 1 am obtuse enough to
think that It it costs tbem less to fit
their children for college at their own
expenses than It does to so fit tbein at
publlo expense, they would be among tbe
first to make a iuss. It us abolish tbe
high schools. Citizen.

Why In It?
The truth of science and progressive
thonght have always boen compelled to
natter aown tne ouiwarKS oi prejudice
and disbelief, or remain forever unknown.
Wby is it that people are so reluctant to
receive facts that relate directly to the
phenomena of their own existence 1 As
tronomers, upon discovering a star, as
sign it a place at once, and it is forever
fixed. The rule by which a matlicmatN
leal problem Is once solved becomes for
ever an axiom; but no matter bow
clearly tho principles wliieh govern
health ; and sickness be demonstrat
ed, tome refuse to believe. Dr. Pierce's
Family Medicines, which aro now so
generally used, and deservedly popular,
were, in their early days, very reluctant
ly received by tbe people. To-day, Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery lias
outrivaled tbe old-time sarsaparillas, bis
pellets are in general use In place of the
coarse, h:g drastic pills formerly so
much employed, while tbe sales ot his
Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy aud bis
Favorite Prescription are enormous.
Where tbe skin is sallow and covered
with blotches and pimples, or where
there are scrofulous swellings and af
lections, a few bottles of his Golden
Medical DIsMvery wlll cfljet an bntlre
cure. If you feel dull, drowsy, debilitat
ed, have sallow color ol skin, of yellowish-brown
spots on face or body, fre

Tbe composition of the human hair has
never been accurately or satisfactorily de
termined.. - Chemical analysis has re
vealed it roam eonstltusuts, but as It
varies essentially In different persons, and
in the aame person at different ages, it Is
impossible to determine, with any aeou
racv, exactly what quality is lacking
whore a person becomes prematurely
gray, or what preparation la best suited
to restore the natural growth and vigor
where the hair talis out so as to prsluce
baldness. Hence Jt in that all artificial
preparations bare failed, In tome essen
tial, at least, to meet the requirements ot
t perfect hair restorative, There are
t "number of excellent dressings and
washings, and scores of preparations that
are either indltTarout or positively inju
rious, and the (treat multlplloity of tbess
furnlahea an argument in support of ths
fuct that there is something lucking In
them alt. Ths uew artlole, Carholine,
contains all the qualities essential lo a
perfect hair restorative, both aa regards
natural rftlor and a fu 1 1, 1 mu rlan t kimw tli.
Tbe bnals of Carholine is petroleum, and
in that, wonderful article, produced in
Nature's own laboratory, are properties
whiob the ouemlat'a art has not yet been
able to eombln.0. and which act like insula
upon the scalp, the fhllKMos aud the va
rious element of which the hair ieoin
posed. Its use as a halr-Oromlng U tne
r;ritest of modern dlamverltn, and thur
i no longer any reason why the premt
