Mrs. L. J. Kpcirs has returned from

fully with all others In these goods. She
will have auctions on the first Saturday,
from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. ot each month

goods in the latest style dally. She will

handsome young lady ot about twenty
live summers. Some time ago they were
'mitten with each other's charms, aud
their tender passions were aroused, it
waq thought, to an alarming exteut.
But the young man's heart soon harden
ed toward the girl ot his bosom, and
night before last, regardless of bis 'first
love," he could be seen strolling on the
high sidewalk with some other lair
daughter of Eve. This was too much
for his "first love." who had been aps
prised of this tact, and as the moon sailed
mujestically along and sbed its, to them,
unwelcome light on this wicked world,
the "llrst love'1 cauld have been seen
with blood In her eye and pistol in her
hand approaching her fair rival. For a
moment all was quiet then a sharp re

the neighborhood set up a bldleous howl

made and nobody hurt.
Cairo can boast ot three or lour of
as fine mlliuery establishments as any
city of her size in the State. Indeed tiie
milinery trade forms a prominent feature
oi the trade of the city, and the amount
ol goods in this line sold in Cairo dur
ing the year is greater than many per
sons aro willing to believe. Among tho
new establishments which deal exclu
sively In the milinery line we may men
tion the now and enterprising firm of
MUsS. U. Carson & Co., Commercial
avenue opposite Winter's block. This
firm has just received a largo 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 the
new firm a lair chare ot patronage.

TEMPERANCE AITD POLITICS.
Ella M. Ulftagow to the front What
be baa to Hay upon ibe ftimjeet
Editor BuLrTix: la your Issuo ol
the 4th Inst., I Hnd an article under the
caption : "Call for a meeting ol temper
ance retormors to nominate candidates,"
etc., In relerenoe to which 1 ask liie In
dulgence of a few remarks by way oi ex
planation. Said article Is something after
this style: ''Some of the more extreme
and Impolitic ol the tempcranco advo
cates ol tho couuty have determined that
the time has come when it will do to
mix politics and temperance, and to
make It the Issue at the election this fall.
At a meeting of the temperance organs
Ization at Olive Branch, a tew days ago,
s series of 'whereases' and 'resolves' were
Indulged In, and a convention to nomi
nate a ticket lor countv offices was called
to meet at Cairo on the Huh day ot
April. The leader in Ibis Ill-timed and
unwise movement Is one Elias M. Glas
gow," etc. Allow me to say that there
was no intention that the proposed con
vention shoujd make a single nomination;
on the contra'ry ,yoa will, by reference to
the communication to tho Cairo club, flud
it expressly stated that the Inten
tion was not to nominato can
didates lor cilice but to tako only such
steps looking thereto as might bo deem
ed advisable. Much less was there an
intentional maklngit the hisue this fall; It
was only hoped to agree upon some un
animous biiis for luture action thiit
would tend to secure concert, harmony
and eflectiveness in our efloris to reform
our fellow-men and emancipate them
trom the despotic and debasiug tlirull
dom of that remorseless aud diabolical
fiend, luteniperai.ee; and, also, by setting
forth our views in reference to the work
to bo accomplished, aud the means o
performing It; to coinpt I both polilica1
parties to rtcognixe the temperance ele
ment, and put forward such men as will
claim Its support. Such aeeins to me to
be perfectly legitimate, and within the
scope of the present reformatory move
ment. Again, while I do not di.-clalm i
the origination ol tho plan lor said coo.
vention, 1 do disclaim Intentional incon
Blderation. Before Introducing thoso reso
lutions, 1 submitted my views to one of
the leading and most influential members
ot the Thebes club, and he heartily en
dorsed them, then they were further sub
mitted to each ol the tempermce organi
zations in the county, a majority of
which concurred In the same.
So then, I trust that, though my views
may be somewhat In advance of those
entertained by my brethren, they will
not do me tbe injustice of making those
views appear more ultra than I have ex
The urticle from which 1 have quoted,
I think, does me great injustice by attri
buting sentiments to me that I have
neither ndvocated nor entertained.
But I find that bad I advocated the
views attributed to me that I would nave
been in good company, as you may see
lrom tbe following extracts from an edi.
torlal in a leading journal of St. Louis of
A prll 3rd: ' 'The temperance movement
Is passing Into a new and cecjssarv de
velopment. The men who wear tne blue
and red ribbons are electing municipal
officers from their own ranks with the
avowed Intention of putting au end by
law to the dramshop trafUc in liquors.
So large a measure of success has already
attended these etloru that the move
ment will continue to gain force and be
come general." Again, "when a people
have become so far advanced in their no
tions of good government and iimrslity
as to prohibit thieving and gambling by
law, they are prepared to take ether
steps in the same direction." Then after
enumerating boidb of the evils attending
tbe licensed traffic, he (the editor) says :
We say to the friends of temperance
everywhere; It is within your power to
do away with dram shops. And the
way to do it is to put men in office,
wherever you can, fully ldentilied with
the temperance movement. Ic is not a
question of general politics. The Issue
Is local and practical. Do not waste your
time in discussing abstract questions;
strike quickly, and let the blows be heavy
enough to persuade your enemies that
you arejn earnest. Elect men who be
lieve 9prohlbition and cannot be bought
up by the liquor dealers.
1 think the time has not
yet arrived for taking such
advanced steps as this, though there la
no doubt as to the work to be accomp
lished, and I trust It rosy bo accomp
lished peaceably, amicably and satisfacN
orllj to all. And sincerely do I hope
that the glorious cause of reform may
never sustain any loss or injury by an
act of mine; on the contrary, my earnest
wish Is. that it may triumph over every
opposition, and Its benign Influence be-
come supreme throughout our land.
