Cairo can boast ot three or lour of
as line milinery establishments as any

milinery trade forms a prominent feature
ol the trade of the city, and the amount

firm has just received a large and com
plete new stock, which they are 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 lor tho

Whom Shall We Trout?
When sflV.cted with a complication of dis
orders, aud the limited resources of the
family physician have been exhausted
without benefit, tho all-important ques
tion is whom shall we trust. Many phy
sicians are bidding lor the patronago of
this class, and It becomes the atllicted to
thoroughly examine Into physician's
claims, and know upon what they are
based, betore trusting him. It. V.Pierce,
M. D., of Buflalo, N. Y., is one of tbe
most successlul and widely known of
authors and physicians In America. He
has recently erected a Grand Invalid's
Hotel, In Buffalo, at the enormous ex
pens ot nearly bait million dollars, It
being the most complete and elegant
sanitarium in tho world. Dr. Tierce
has originated a eyBtem of diagnosis by
which ho is enabled to distinguish; most
chronic diseases without seeing the pa.
tient. This scientific system is fully
described in bis Common Sense Medical
Adviser, which is sent to any address on
