Of lute we have been frequently
asked to cull ttie attention of the author
itles to the unbecoming and Insulting
conduct ot boys who congregate at street
corners and Insult and trip ladies as they
pass. Sometimes some of these boys

sitting on railings, ut no great distance

rest of some ol these youngsters would
have a wholesome t flect.
On Wednesday last a stranger riding
a One bay horse made his appearance In
the city and offered to sell tho animal.
He first called upon Mr. Pat Fitzgerald,
and alterwanls upon other parties, but
without liiiding a purchaser. From the
man's actions the officers became con
vinced that the horse was stolen and the
fellow was arrested and locked up. Hu
has acknowledged that the horse was
stolen, but declares that tho Officers will
never be able to find his owner.
The game ol base ball played yes

of the city who are not connected with
any ot the regular organizations. The
trarne resulted in a victory for the asso

Afire broke out in the court house
at Jonesboro, on Saturday night last
The fire caught, it was thought, from a
cigar stump thrown into a box ot dry
sawdust which was around one ot the
stoves In the court room, on the second
floor Immediately over the sheriff's ofllce.
The tire had burned through the floor,
and tho flames were spreading rapidly
when discovered about 9 o'clock at night.
By the active exertions nl the citizens tne
fire was subdued, and the courthouse
saved. Considerable damage was done
to the records, papers, furnitures, etc.,
besides the building, amounting In all to
less than a thousand dollars.
Cairo can boast ot three" or tour of
as fine milinery establishments as any
city of her size in the State. Indeed the
milinery trade forms a prominent feature
of the trade of the city, and the amount
ot goods in this line sold in Cairo dur
ing the year Is greater than many per
sons arc willing to believe. Among the
new establishments which deal exclu
slvely in the milinery line we may men"
tlon the new and enterprising firm of
MissS. H. Carson & Co., Commercial
avenue opposite Winter's block. This
firm has just received a large and com
plete new stock, which they are ready to
exhibit to those w ishing 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 fair share ot patronage.
The meeting at the Temperance l?c
form club roems last night was very
large and the proceedings of the usually
interesting character. As announced in
the Bulletin yesterday morning Col. I.
K. Townes ol Jonesboro was on hand
and made an able and eloquent speech.
Col. Townes is an orator of high order
and never fails to entertain und please
his hearers. He was In good spirits last
night, and his address Is said on all sides
to hare been an able and eloquent one.
At the conclusion ot Col. Townes' ad
dress, Prof. Moore, ol St. Louis, was
called upon and responded in a brief
but a pleasunt and entertaining speech.
Geo . Mattison also spoke. The meeting
throughout was enthusiastic and when
the pledgo was offered a number ot new
signers were obtained.
It may not be generally known but
then It is a lact that a meeting was held
In this city a few days ago to make ar
rangements lor the proper observance of
the annual decoration of the soldiers
graves In the National Cemetary at
Mound City. The meeting was held in
the custom house, and It is charged by
some that It was too much of a one
sided affair that no public notice was
given, and that none but Radicals were
Invited to attend the meeting. Whether
intentional or otherwise the tact
remains the same that the
meeting was gotten up ycry
quietly, and that ot all those present
there was, so far as we are able to learn ,
but one Democrat In the crowd, and that
Democrat was II. G. Carter, of Mound
City. Among the prominent Radicals
present we may mention such shining
lights as Jack Kuykondall and John S.
Crum of .Vienna; John K. Dotrlch of
Sparta; J. C. Willis of Metropolis; C.
Kirkpatrlck ol Anna; Ed. S. Ackcrmun
of the Pulaski 'Patriot, and Postmaster
McKealg and Collector Fisiier of Cairo.
Indeed. when we looked In
upon this raotly crowd wo felt that we
hud dropped in at a Kedical caucus and
did not stay long. Of all those present
there was not one who Is not an olHoer
ofsomoklndor who desires clllco at
the hands ol the Radical party.
However, it may be that there was uo
intention to slight any one, and that we
have no right to complain about the
matter, and in that case we have nothing
more to say. But the Democrats ot this
district claim the right to participate in
the decoration or tne .soldiers graveg
and they do not propose to allow the
managers of the lUdic.d party to shove

The market 1ms been unusually quiet

are not changed, but wherever changes
has occurred, they have been downward8
