Alderman Foley is a candidate lor
re-election in the Fourth ward. While
we do not agree with Alderman Foley
on the ftaod he has taken on some of
the more important questions that have
1 ttejy come belore the council, we Ix
licve be acted in accordance with his
ideas of right, and what he believed to
be the best interests ol the city. He has
been attentive to the duties of tlieolllcc
he holds, and has labored faithfully In
the interests of his constituents, and if
re-elected we believe he will, in the
future as in the past, discharge the duties

Capt. N.B.Tbisllewoodla a candi
date for re-election to represent the Sec
ond ward in the city council. Capt.
Tblstlewood has been a member ot the
council lor the last four years, and on all
occasions has taken an active part In
shaping the affairs of the city. Ho is
thoroughly posted on all tlio more im
portant questions that are likely to eomc
before the council In the near future, and
is perhaps better prepared to act upon
them Intelligently than any new man,
not familiar with the doings ot the coun
cil, could. But then the Second warders
know thuir own business, and will elect
ti e man they want most.
Cairo can boast ot three or lour of
as fine milinery establishments as any
cltv of her size In the State. Indeed the
milinery trade forms a prominent feature
ol the trade of the city, and the amount
oi goods in tills 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
sively In the milinery line we may men
tion the new and enterprising firm of
MlssS. II. 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 share ot patronage.
