Mrs. Laura J.Tisdale, of Chicago, ar
rived in Cairo, on the aft'fnoon train yes-

will be the guest of Mr. ' ani. Mrfl. H. II.
Candee. She comes to Cairo to take charge
of a class in elocution, which is already
partly formed. Mis. T, is a finished clonn-
tionist, and will no doubt prove herself n
most successful teacher. Persons desiring
to join the class should make application at
"Chris Hanny." The name is familiar
to every patron of the Cairo market. He is
now "in the field"' for the winter trade, with
a very full ami admirably ussorted stock of
dry goods and groceries, which he will sell,
either nt wholesale or retail, at figures that
no competitor will attempt to undersell.
Wholesale buyers are especially invited to
call on him. He has the goods that every
merchant must keep, und he inteniw to

In not less than one hundred families
in Cairo, coal oil is used in kindling fires.
Hot tires can be secured in a lew minutes
through iU use, and for that reason it is ex
tensively used in kindling the morning
fires. The foul odor of the burning fluid
can be smelled every morning in all parts
of the city, and as great danger attends its
use its a fire-kind ler, the council should
pass an ordinanco denouncing its use in that
way as a misdemeanor.
The cold weather, not being aatistied
with the havoc it has made among the nosi s
of railroad brakcinen, is making a raid
upon the nasal orgaus of the Chicago street
car drivers. Tho Chicago Sentinel says
that there are not a dozen sound, unfrozen
nos"S among the several hundred car driv
ers of that cily. Their ears being adorned
with a thick growth of hair, do not suffer.
The only really safe noses aro those worn

ablaze with whisky that the weather doesn't
Through inadvertency wo spoke of the
Mexican excunionisU iu Tuesday's paper,
us having artived in Cairo "yesterday," in
slcad of Sunday, on which day they did ur
rive. Many of them will have occasion to
wish they hud never started, before they
reach their destination. They are doubt
less umcd for a long, tedious, trying trip;
but a thousand things will Imppcii which
they do not anticipate, and against which
or for which they huvc, as a consequence,
made iio provision. They have, probably,
made arrangements with their bankers for
fresh aupplles of money, as often us the

though the want of them is likely to become
the most pressing need of the excursion.
But a few tound heads will get through, in

bear an nshurar.ee to the amiable Mexican
authorities that we hold their people in tho
highest esteem, and aro exceedingly nnxioua
to cultivate closer business und social rela

to do this, but what Ktrongrr proof could

The per cent, of levy upon the property
of Cairo and Alexander county, to provide
money Jor the pnyuv nt of this year's inter
est or. our railroad bondu, is heavier than it
has been for several yeais, and somewhat
heavier than stated by us the other day.
Upon the property of the whole
county the levy is one per cen
tum, or t"n dollars on the thousand.
Upon the property of the city, it is for both
the city and county bonds, two and three
tenths of one per centum, or twenty-three
dollars on the thousand. As no time is left
wherein to secure a writ of injunction to re
strain the county c'trk from extending 'the
tax on, the tax book, the Taxpayers' associa
tion will be called upon to renew the fight
of last year and the year before, i. e , to en
join the sheriff, and rcM.-t judgment before

The Hibernian engine house last night,
was the scene of much gaiety and solid en
joyment. The attendance was fair, not
withstanding the inclemency of the eight.
The lower floor of the building was tspe
cialy attractive because ot the lame and
tempting array of edible sibstuntials and
luxuries. The table was bountifully sup
plied w ith rakes of most art.stic finish UDd
various kinds, with meats ind fowl and
relishes, all spread in such a aianner as to
tantalize the appetite and invLeovcr-eating.
The second floor was devoted to the sale
tables of which there were three, and all of
them supplied with article of utility or
adornment. These tables era in charge
of good-looking young talcs or equally
presentable married ladies, and it was u
fellow of stout resolve that could pass the
tables without making ai i'ivestmn:it.

Some imaginative writer has striven
quite persistently to connect a vast amount
of romance with the life of tho railroad
brakeman. One trip from Central! to
Chicago, about this time of year, would
knock the romantic notions of that writer
higher than any kite ever sailed in the
"cerrulenn blue." With tho thermometer
slinking away down to the 80s and DUs be
low zero, with the cars glazed with ice,
and the prairie wind scudding along at fie
rate of forty miles an hour, and striking
them directly at right angles, there is jist
about as much romance in the work o:'a
brakesman as there is in getting lost h a

A Tennessee lawyer him published an
opinion concerning the liability of corpora
tions, being thereunto moved by a consid
eration of tho financial conditlou of Mem
phis. If the opinion is really supported by
ho authorities cited, it may serve Cairo a
good turn. Tho gfntleman Bays tl.r.t the
obligations of a corporation urc not unlike
those of a firm. If a corporation be dis
solved, the creditors can si.i.c upon its ra

streets and wharves, which were held in

The debts which weigh so heavily upon
Cair were contracted by a corporation that
has hecn abandoned n corporation author
ized by special enactment, and entirely dif
ferent fr"m that which displaced it. We
have not consulted Mr. Cunningham or any
other standard authority coniicrning this
matter; I tit it strikes us quite furciby that
ifthccrcditorsof abandoned '.-rdi-placed cor
porations have no relief beyond that w hich
may be furnished 1 y the remaining asset,
Cairo i in a condition to successfully resist
all pressure of th.it character that may
threaten to distress her. In other words if
the opinion of tlej Tennessee lawyer is
sound, tho old debts of Cairo fell with the
old corporation. So, too, with back t:;Xr.
Klevied for general purposes they would
fall with the old corporation, unless kept in
force by special legislation. Whether the
.'peeial legislation was bad, and th:s extent
to which the opinion really litsthe uffairsof
