So far as weath.-r Wl..t, the .Masons of
Cairo had no occasion to complain yes
terday. It was hot outside, it i true but
the procession took place iu the early part
of the day, and what would have been un
pleasant in this respect was escaped. In
the celebration of the day, Lincoln Lodge

Eastern Star, of DuQuoin; Silver Crown, of
Metropolis; Brent Lodge, of Charleston,
Mo.; Mt. Zion Lodge, of Faducah, Ky.,

a delegation from Columbus, Ky. The
DuQuoin dc'iegat'on, oho hundred strong,
and the Charleston delegation, arrived in
the morning at 4 o'clock. The others ar
rived later in the day. At ,11 o'clock ft
procession formed on Ohio Levee, between
Sixth , and Eighth fctreets, and
headed by the Columbus colored brnrs
hand, proceeded down the Levee to the St.

Twentieth street; out Twentieth street to

We were yesterday shown by Mr. Win.

the Cairo market ground from this year's
wheat. It came from the mills of Messrs.

on the liu of the Cairo and Vincenr.es rail-

The dedication of the Odd Fellow's
cemetery at Vienna, Sunday, wag attended
by delegations from towns along tho line of
the Cairo and Viuccnnes road, and by the
people- of Vienna and the neighboring
couutiT. A procession oi una f ellows
formed in front of the hall of tho order at
Vienna, and in that line moved out to the
cemetery grounds. The day was hot, but
the line shade on the grounds afforded re
lief to the large crowd from the rays of the
sun. An organ was placed on the stand
under an arltor, and a nutnlter of yoing
ladies furnished some excellent vocal music
After formal exercises by officers of the

The excursion and basket pic-nic to
Jonesimro, given under the auspices of the
Masonic fraternity of this city, was the big
gest thing of its kind that ever went out of
Cairo, and had it been generally known that
theNarrow Gauge road could have supplied
the transportation, it would have been
much larger. As it was thirteen cars went
out crowded with people. A careful esti
mate made by a gentleman in a position to
know, places the number of people who
left town on the train at one thousand.
Joneslxiro was reached without a mishap
of any kind, and once there the pic-nitkers
enjoyed themselves as their faneie? led.
