A great stream of flame, shooting out
of one of the custom house chimneys, last

The fact that an alarm was not sounded

One distinguishing feature of the late
K. T. sociable, was the elegant and costly
dresses worn by some of the lady partici
pants. While all the ladies were creditably
and comfortably apparelled, as many as a
half dozen of them wore costumes that
were notably rich, and evidently very ex
pensive. The Sheiilf is a man of veracity, and
when lie informed us yesterday that three
of his dogs snatched up and attempted to
digest more cold poison than was healthy
for them, we didn't doubt the statement;
but it occurred to us that if three more of
his d i;b should do the siunu thing, he'd

The managers of tho Illinois Central
aro not unmindful of the industry and fidel
ity of their employes. Quite recently a
large number of braketnen have been pro
moted to the position of freight conductors,
and about nn equal number of firemen to
the charge of engines. This increase of
force indicate an enlarged sphere, of ac
tion, or an increase of business.
The collector's book of Alexander
county will pn 1uil.lv be finished to-day.
The footings wid aggregates about one hun
dred and fifty thousand dollars. Before re-
receiving the book the collector will have
to execute a bond in a sum double tho
amount of the tax book, which will be
about t;lO!),(iOO. The county commission
ers will probably convene to examine mid
appiovuthu bond next Monday or Tuesday.
Upon the delivery of the tax book of
this (V.unty, for the current year, the collec
tor will be charged with the total amount,
thereof, probably $i:0,000. Before he can
proael with his collections ho must give
a bond with approved security for $100,000,
and the men who sign this bond must lie
worth $(11)0,(100. When we remark that tho
colleetonvill make n remarkably closo col,
lection, if h: gather in JWO,000, the utt -r
lolly of requiring of Mm such an cn irmous
bond, will be apparent. I urthcrmore, the
collector is so beseigod for money by the
State Auditor and the different school
treasurers that it rarely ever happens tin,
ho has as much as $JO,000 on liund at one
time. But the commissioners have no dis
cretion. Tho law requires tho ''enormous
bond," and the collector must file it. It'
anybody thinks that he stands so well with
the public that it would bo nn easy matter
fur him to fill a bond for f 500,000, just let
that conceited body try it. Tho effort will
take the conceit out of him completely.
It is altogether probable that the com
pensation of tho City Jailor for dieting pris
oners will be cut down from 50 cents a day
to 35. It was urged that wlicn the price
was fixed at 50 cents scrip was worth only
50 and 00 cents on the dollar; flour was from
$9 to $14 per barrel, and everything cor
respondingly high.This consideration is mor
ally certain to work the proposed reduction,
but as nobody knows wheira the reduction
will affec t, nobody has any right to complain
There will be sounds of revelery by
night in Cairo and in all tho neighUning
towns, "right straight ahead," now,
until warm weather. The Delta calico ball
comes off this evening; a masquerade ball
at Mound City on the 22nd ; calico ball at
Metropolis, 22nd, masquerade at Centralia.
21st; Mother Washington ball at Anna on
tho 21st; masquerade ball atDuQuo'm on
the 22nd; masquerade at Charleston to mor
row night, and Casino and C. M K. of C.
masquerade balls in Cairo on the 25th.
These to begin with.
About the richest case ever dispoed of
in a Cairo police court was the trial of a
colored "rip," named "Black Hat," before
'Squire Robinson, tiie other day. She was
brought up under a charge of disorderly
conduct, having maltreated u v..rv respect
able colored individual from Villa Ridge.
Black Hat acted as her own attorney, and
although she couldn't acquit herself of the
crime charged to her, she managed to keep
the audience in an almost continuous roar.
Slie was punished by the infliction of a
fine, which, with the cost amounted to
The colored youngsters of the city gave
a minstrel show in the Pilot hous". Tuesday
night, that not only called out a large crowd,
but amused the crowd alter it had assem
bled. The delineation of negro character
by Jimmy Tanner and another b 'y, whose
name we have forgotten, is said to have
been excellent, in fact woud rful. The
troupe had a good check and balance in
the person of a professional, nam' d Wilson,
under whose direction the troupe did all its
reheaising. The white-loy miiMrels must
look out for their laurels. The colored
youngsters are fully abr.?ast with them.
Only a few days ago eggs were selling
in the Cairo market at 25 cents per dozen.
On Tuesday evening a countryman came
into the city with eggs, two dozen for 23
cents It was a man impuls? in us; but
we at once determined to take advantage
of that man's ignorance. He hadn't been to
town for a long time, and we felt sure that lie
din't know that eggs were worth it quarter.
Without giving him a hint that he might do
better dnw:i town we bought more eggs than
wenei i'ii'd. b' cause, as we thought, we wi re-
getting the better of that badly posted 1 end disorder. It is of the utmost nnpor
favmer. We felt a guilty triumph in i tam e that the bov.els should be thoroughly
the matter, and stepping into a neighbor- 'and speedily regulated when they grow
ing family grocery a half hour later, i derelict. The corrective agent best adapted
our exultation was turned into gall, for ! to this purpose is llo.-tetter's Stomach Bit
there, perched up in the middle of a tub I ters, a who'esome, non-griping vegetable
of eggs was the placard, "Fresh eggs K) j laxative, worth all the rasping cathartics
cents." It was rather inconsistent in us,
we confess; but we felt abiioil, un.l cver
since then have harbored the notion that
that countryman selected lis, oui of all the
men of Cairo, as the victim of his cruel
machinations. It is altogether likely, too.
that we are the only customer he had who
paid him more than ten cents a dozen.
While the Knights Templars mid
the City Cotincilmeu persist in holding their
monthly re-unions on the same evening, one
or the other must suffer editorial neglect.
Wc have paid special reporters at the rate
of fourteen dollars an hour to write' up the
Knights' sociables; but once there, they be
came so absorbed in the pleasures and pas
times of the evening that they became ob
livious of everything else ; and the result is
that, on the second Wednesday morning of
every month, finding no mention of the so
ciable in our trim and otherwise well-filled
columns, we proceed, with great earnest
ness, to "snatch ourselves bald." Ordina
rily we can write a very good notice before
the affair comes off; but pastimes w ith the
Sir Knights run so far out of the accus
tomed channels that it is rather hnz
ardoiis business to deal with them
in that manner. The council meet
ings have an iiTosistable charm f.r us
- afford a pastime that is entertaining if
not instructive. Wo can't wean ouiselves
from them without greatly imperiling our
happiness. It follows, therefore, that
unless money, prayers or tears have ilie ef
fect of winning a special reporter to our
service, or we ourselves become ubiquitous,
the monthly Tuesday sociables must "tuku
what they get.''
A women, plainly dressed, Mid of small
stature, is winuing a living off of Cairo
people by sharp practices. She tells so
ninny different stories as to wiio Hnj is and
whero sho came from, that ouch of H,r
tricks seem to bo playod by a different
female.' By a story that would nmvo
an anchorite, sho wins sympathy, hires her
self as u servant, and lights out before tho
family is out of bed uext morning, with
all the household goods sho can conveniently
carry. She also collects money to buy
medicines for her sick children, to pity lier
own ferriage across the river, and under
such other pretexts as only a shiude, con
scienceless woman can devise. Yesterday
she called at the door of an uptown resi
dence and in a tearful tone informed tho
lady of tho house that she was about to
be married to a good, honest man
who could provide for her; but
that her necessities had com
pdled her to pawn her engagement ring.
It was in the hands of a heartless Irisman
who would sell it, unless she was promptly
on hand to redeem it. She only lacked
25 cents, and would the good lady, for
humanity's sake, give her tho quartet?
The good lady did so, of course, and the
grateful creature departed in tears. This
was a winning card, and the female
"rascal" has no doubt phyed it in all
parts of the city. Auybody who doesn't
cute to see the tricky old girl, can meet
her a dozen times a day; but wo defy the
manor woman whom she has wronged, or
any or all of the police to find her anywhere
in Cairo. To persons she doesn't want to
see she is invisible.
As the River Improvement commission
authorized by an act of Congress to ex
amine the Mississippi and report upon the
best plan for its improvement and the re
clamation of the adjacent lands that are
subject t overflow, will soon enter upon a
discharge of its duties, it might be well for
our city or county authorities, and citizens
who have material interests at stake, to
cast alout them and see what it is most ad
visable to have done for Cairo. It would
be well to consider the feasibility of a cut
off, starting from the Dog Tooth,
to a point at or near Greenfields ferry land
ing. The distance is less than five miles,
and the opinion is expressed that the entire
work would involve the expenditure of i.:
mor; than i$:!0.0OO or ? 40,000. The land
iic3 very low, and us the cut-off would
straighten the river, there would be but
little caving of banks after the water had
once worn itself a sufficient channel. Cairo
would be placed beyond all danger front
caving banks, and enjoy corresixmding
exemption from periodical panics. About
fifteen miles oi the worst jxirtion of the
river hence to St. Louis would be cut off,
and numtwlcss other IxMiefits would accrue,
as well to navigation as to Cairo and the
adjacent couu'ry on either side of the
stream. In any event, the matter is one that
is worthy of investigation. It the work
proposed will accomplish any of the ends to
which we have called attention, we should
take su :h steps as will enable us to present
the niat'er to the commission in an intelli
gible shape, when the uicmWrs arrive here.
A survey of the mute, with estimates of cost,
etc., would involve but a small expenditure
of money; and if the city council or county
commissioners cannot deal with the matter,
we commend it to the atfnlion of the Tax
payers' Association. If anything is done it
hould be done ( uickly.
