three of them drowned, wore a suspicious
aspect. The leveo men were entirely too
ignorant in tho premises j nolsaly was
nulliciently certain, and those who knew
about it, were nt sea when it come to de
tails. Wo shall not put ourselves on record
as pronouncing it a "sell," but there were
divers ami sundry phases about it that
looked very peculiar.
It was hard on horses and rough on ri
ders; but a countryman came to the city
yesterday, thought ho luid a horse that
could "Ham out'1 anything m Cairo; which
impression he avowed he would support with
areasonable amount of filthy lucre. It would
be somewhat surprising, if, in u town as
large as Cairo, a bantering r Hunger of that
kind were permitted to leave the city unac
commodated. This stringer win not, tit all
events. His proffered wager was covered,
Kynaston put a horse on the track that
dashed away from the cxulverant stranger
in a manner that compelled him to give
voice to the exclamation: "D n me, if I
ever Set u the like'.' Just how far the
strange animal was distanced, or how
much money was staked on hirn, wo can't
say. The weather w as a little too severe to
encourage a walk of a mile to obtain the
details, hence we are without them.
A young man named Henry Bedford
was killed, a few days ago, by licing
crushed under the cars, between Bird's
Point and Charleston, at n point near
Adams' plaining mill, on the Cairo dead
track. He was in the net of stepping from
one platform car to another, when, losing
his footing, he fell to the ground, three
cars and the tender passing over his legs,
and leaving his body so wedged under the
engine that it would have been instant
death to have moved it, even a foot, either
way. In this horrible predicament the un
fortunate young man remained until jack
screws could be obtained, and the engine
lifted from his twdy. He begged most
piteously for the parties present to sluxit
him, and put him out of his misery. He
was released at the end of a half hour's la
bor, and died about an hour later. Ho had
many relatives and friends in Charleston,
and was well acquainted in Cairo.
John Q. Harman has definitely fixed
upon to-morrow as the time for his final de
parture from Cairo. ("Juite everybody will
miss him, for during a period of twenty-five
years he has successfully played the role of
a liberal, intelligent, public-spirited citizen
a man who, though at no time wealthy,
ha built houses ia every portion of the
city, always bearing his full share of the
public burdens, and never standing aloof
from any enterprise or undertaking that
had in view the material well-being of the
city or country. His departure will seem
to elfjct the removal of u feature of the
city. He has for so many years held official
positions among us, and has been so inti
mately connected with the law and public
bu.-ines of the place, that a thought of one
naturally suggests a thought of the other.
But of this, enough. To the good graces
and friendship of the people of Mt. Vernon,
Tin-; Bu.i.eti.n commends him as an honest,
straight-forward, intelligent gentleman,
worthy of their entire confidence, whether
measured as a citizen or a Democrat.
Good-bye. old John, good-bye."
Old Bill L?e complains of the severity
of the weather. Ill chid and half fed, he
says he finds the cold more keenly than ever
licfore iu his life. When Bill complains,
there is some cause for it. We have seen
him emerge from beneath a covering of
snow, under which he bad slept all night;
have assisted in removing him out of the
frozen ground, to which the frosts of a
cold night had attached him as with rivets
of steel; but never before have we heard
him complain of the effects of cold weather.
These complaints are chargeable in a meas
ure to his inability fill up its
bountifully as formerly, on bad
whisky. For a period of nearly or
quite thirty-five years he has been continu
ally under the influencu of liquor, his
greatest stretch of total abstinence running
from the time of falling asleep at night
until awakened by the terrible longings of
the morning. With a fystem shattered by
such terrible abuse, of course any diminu
tion of the supply of liquid lire, would tell
upon him most fearfully. Then, it is not
so much tho want of clothing or food, that
makes William feel tho cold blasts of De
cember so sensibly, as it is the absence of
the wonted stimulants that so successfully
fortified him, in tho halcyon days of free
whisky and plenty ot it.
Wo heard, yesterdy, that old "aunt
Han Lee," the mother of Bill Lee, had bo
come so heavily laden with tho burdens of
uge und extreme poverty that she must soon
drop by tho way-side. The old woman was
a child when our federal constitution was
adopted; a young woman when Washing
ton died, and a mother w hen the war of 1812
was fought. Upon what ground sho bases
her relationship to Richard Henry Lee, of
Independence feme, we do not know, but
those who have heard the old creature's exul
tant story, give her a second-consuiship. All
her life she has been poor; but in her old
aye, while shambling along her tenth de
cade of years, si.o feels tho keen Jiangs of
absolute anil abject destitution. She und
Bill nro possessed of a "pride," us they call
it, that would welcome starvation, if a place
in the poor-houso was tho alternative. How
nearly they approach starvation, will bo uu-

P'r wj :k. This sum provides a baro suf
ficiency of corn meal and bacon to keep away
gaunt hunger. Against such a meager ul
lownnco wu here enter a protcit. ,It would
cost not less than $;0 a mouth to keep the
paii in tho county poor house. Why not,
then, allow them half that sum,
and charge the othtr hat to
tho "pride," which they think
shields them from the designation of
"paupers." Two dollars and a half a wet k
is certainly u small allotment to two persons;
but to a pair that has been subsisting on
half that sum, it would seem an abundance.
Let the overseer of the poor, then, give or
ders that they receive double their former
rations. Half the expense will soon be
stopped by the death of tho old woman;
but humanity revolts at the very idea that
we art? hastening that death by enforcing a
slow ami tantalizing process of starvation.
To kill out the yellow fever germs re
quires a long, protracted spell ot freezing
weather. The exact measure of cold weath
er n ces:iry to effect that end, cannot, with
any certainty, be determined, That the
winter of 1873 failed to do so, Captain Hill
furnishes rather conclusive evidence, that
fell directly under his personal observation.
In the summer of 1873, the watchman ot
one of n number of barges of which the
captain had charge.sickened and died of yel
low fever. The man had slept, or deposited
his clothing behind the forward bulk-head.
The vacancy occasioned by this man's death
was immediately tilled. The new man re
mained on the barge all the ensuing fall
and winter, and until the month of May, in
the following spring, when he, too, sicken
ed and died of precisely the sain j ailment
that had killed his predecessor. Tho Caji
tain has had the yellow fever, and is as fa
miliar with its symptoms and peculiarities
as he is w ith the meusels or fever and ague.
Hence he claims to bo well assured of his
statement, that the new man on the barge
undoubtedly died of the yellow fever. The
germs w ere deposited in the first man's lurk
ing places, and the cold of tho succeeding
winter not being sufficiently severe to kill
them off, they germinated into active life
under the warmth of the succeeding
spring weather. If, then, our readers can
recall the degree of severity that character
ized the w inter of 1873, they can determine
the degree of cold the germs will withstand
when hous.'d away from the direct action
of the weather.
A correspondent of the Argus-Journal,
who signs himself "Citizen," strives to make
it appear that the compensation of the
sheriff and cx-oflieio collector, under the
September order of the county bo;ird, will
reach the very handsome sum of five thou
sand on.' hundred dollars. If that corres
pondent will pay us the amount that t!.e
sheriffs compensation wiil fall short of
$"i,100, we will enter into bonds to pay him
every dollar that it exceds $1,200. Of a
tax-book that footed up about $130,000,
Sheriff Snip succeed 'd, by unwarrantably,
but humanely, extending the time several
weeks beyond the lawful limit, in collect
ing about $'17,000. Upon part of tins sum
he was pud u commission of two per tent.,
and upon the balance, !J per cent. To make
the calculation over-liberal, we will say he
received three per cent, upon the whole
sum, r.ini we thus produce a total ot $2,100.
Beyond this sum his total receipts in the
way of fees, etc., did not reach $300. lb-nce
we have it, that Mr. S-iiip's receipts as col
lector, for the year ending December 1,
187, amounted to $2,(100, aud had he been
acting under the order that applies to Mr.
Hodges, that -J2.G00 would have formed his
entire pay, as the iiicumltcut of the positions
named. But how will it be with Mr.
Hodges I In the first place, Assessor Alden's
returns are about $110,000 less than Mr.
Hely's returns of last year. From these re
duced returns, the State Board of Equaliza
tion ordered a reduction of thirty-five
per cent, upon lands and lots (which
is an increased reduction;, und twenty
per cent, upon personal property, last
year the reduction being only ten per cent.
Then, to begin with, we have a basis of
taxation for the present year, mora than a
half million dollars less than last year.
I' pou this greatly (and perhaps unduly) re
duced basis of taxation, there will be no
county railroad-bond interest tax extended,
no city rail road -bond interest extended,
and about $3,000 less of u corporation tax.
The school, county und statu levies will re
main about tho sumo as last year. From
this biref presentation of the matter it is
clear that Mr. Hodges will make n remark
ably close collection, if at the end of the
year, he can report $30,000. His commis
sions uru dependent upon his collections,
and if wo rate all at 3 per cent., they will
amount to $1,500. Add to this sum all the
fees he may collect, and he may swell the
sum to $2,000. Out of this sum he must
provide his own stutionnry, his own blanks,
his own light and fuel, pay his own adver
tising bills, his clerk hire and all other ex
penses incident to his position. His ad
ministration will be remarkably ecouomi
col, if the $300 is made to cover all these
outlays. Tuketho $300 from the $2,000,
und you have $1,300 kit, which is the
amount of his salary, leaving nothing for ,i
deputy, or for any other purposo whatever,
These statements lire all grounded upon
known facts, viz: I'poii the assessment long
since completed; tho tax levy for 1878, al
ready made, mid the reports of collector
Simp, on file in the oflico of the county
clerk. If wo have erred at all, it has been
on tho safe side, i. e. In according to Mr.
Hodges n turgor compensation than he Is at
all likely to realize.

TUB DAILY CAIRO BI LI.KTIN.
Our friend Barton, of tho Carlsmdnle
Free Press, places such u high estimate upon
The Dailv Bi.i.i.eti.n-, und the newspaperi
al merit of iu editor, that wo have hesitated
to republish his good opinion, fearing that
the suspicious reader might not regard it a
voluntary offering. But we have finally
overcome our hesitation, and, excluding
three lilies of over partial exfoliation of
the editor, we give the balance of the "good
"Caiho Daily Bi i.i.ktin. This paper is
now under the editorial control of our old
and esteemed friend, M. B. Harrell, Years
ago we learned to appreciate tho ability of
Mr. II. as an editor. t'nder
the management of the late Mr. Xally, Thu
Bn.bKTiN came nearly up to our standard
of excellence, but we think Mr. Hurrell has
improved even on Mr. Nully. Tin: Bui.-
lktix is a credit to the newspaper business,
un institution which the people of Cairo and
Southern Illinois should appreciate and sus
tain. The weekly is a large forty-eight
column paper. It is pure, chaste and inter
esting, and should be in every family in
this part of the state. Tin: Bi.i.i.KTiX is
Democratic in its silitics, but is us progres
sive as any Demot'i aic paper can be. We
like the p:.p''i and commend it t' a general
circulation in this s-ction."
Our coteiuporary of the Clinton (Ky.)
Democrat, is also quite partial toward TllK
BuM.ETis; but we give his kind reference
to it in full, lie says:
Y see fioiii a Into number of The
Cairo Bulletin', that Mr. M. B. Harrcll
has again aseended the tripod, and is now
editor of the paper. Mr. Harrcll is one of
the b -st political writers iu Illinois, and his
Democracy is of the simon-pure sort. With
his pen to indite the matt r for Tin: Iii i.
llmn, it is bound t ) make a salutary im
pr upon the great mass of voters who
Millixkuv. Mrs. S. Williamson dot
not intend to bo undersold. She invites at
tention to the following prices on hats, and
assures her friends nnd customers that they
are lower than the same fjoods can be pur
chased in any market. She will sell felt
bats 40c. to 73e.; and tho very finest felt f ir
$1.00 worth $1.30; straw hats for 33c.
worth 50c; straw worth C3o. for 30c; fine
straw Milan for 00c. worth $1.30, also
Milans for 73c. worth $1.23. Feathers,
flowers and other goods proportionally low.
She only asks that you call and see for

ers to her elegant fur trimmings suitable
for cloaks, which she sells by the yard, ulso
a full line of ladies' and children's furs at
very low prices. Her stock of jewelry, suit
able for holiday gifts, is large and of great
variety. She invites special attention to
this. She will keep a full stock of natural
flowers in Ixiquets and baskets for the holi
days. Her English crape rouchings and
