If the suggestion, made some time ago,
to retill the gravi s ol the yellow fever dead
who were removed last winter, has not
already been acted upon, that work should
be pel formed at once. Tim men who re
moved the bodies should have rctillod the
graves: but as they did not do so, our city
authorities should order it done. As we
have had no severely cold weather since the
la t bodies were removed, no one can tell
w'n.t i Linger.' may be lying dormant in tho
r.blii-h and debris that surrounded and
cowr 'd the bo. lies. 1 i lit. danger or no
danger, the open graves are unsightly things
a'td ought to be lilied up.
'iwing to tic exc 'ssivcly cold weather
of December and J -innary, the tobacco

IJliiJ hhds, the sales now don't ex

Thi.s'lewood and Moore sold thirteen hogs
heads, all of low grade, the extreme fig

fair, and as no rejections were reported, it
is fair to conclude that the otl i ings brought
all thev wore held tn be worth.
Every citizen of Cairo, or every house

putting his surroundings in good ordi r.
The Health Ollieer should temporize with
nobody. He should give his orders in a
manner that cannot be misunderstood, and
then enforce obedience. In two weeks
Irom this time, the grounds, out-houses
and surroundings of th" homes, hotels
and business houses of the city should all

to be a Itcpubliean. is a bitter, bigotted

I'll" few I)e moor its who advocate the

nomination ot a Democratic city ticket,
call out but an indifferent response a
lain'' ami lukewarm one, in fact. Cairo is
to-day a Democratic city; hut, uiifortuti-
ately lor party purposes, it embraces quite
a number f voters who think fur them
selves, and, in those contests where
politics cut. no figure, vcte as they please.
We .were taught this lesson two years ago,
and because the writer of this paragraph
hinted as.inueh in a meeting of Democrats
called U decide upon the propriety of hold
ing a convention, ho was almost hooted.
The contest resulted precisely as wo pro
dieted that it would. Democrats voted, as
they w ill vote again, for those whom they
belie ed to be the litlest men. and the
whole ticket, with the exception of the can
didate who was thought to be "a load,"
was deleatod. The party has not yet fully
recovered from the blow then administered
to it certainly is not in a condition to in
vite another set back,
"Heavens and earth! Is that thooxi.Y
way to get into this house:'' Such was the
ejaculatory inquiry of it young railroad
man, the other day, when, after sore
difficulty he had reaehrd the tl.rcshhohl of
the home of an tip-town friend to whom he
was paying a friendly visit. He had come
to the front: door, looked in and saw an
empty room. His friend lived in the second
stor and Here were no oulsido stairs. He
filially entered a narrow passage between
two houses, folloivod it until he came ton
high (.olid boa i'd partition. It was qnilo
dark in there; he couldn't find the gate for
the reason, probably, that there was none
tin 're, ho he clambered over the partition to
tlnd himself in the wrongyard, and in com
pany with nvcry huge unlivery vicious dog,
that accepted each additional pet name as a
fresh insult. Dy walking backward and
holding out his hat for the dog to smell of
nnd growl at, the young man succeeded
in reaching a fence which ho cleared tit a
spring, greatly to the dog's disgusts, for he
had manifestly; made up his mind to s -e
how the legs of u young railroad man tasted
A fence, fully eight feet high, now barred
the young man's w;fy, and, clambering to the
top of it ho dropped down on an empty
mackerel kit that threw him Hat on his back
into such an eligible position for "chaw
ing" that the iIol; on the other siile of the
folic. became perfectly wild and frienzied
because ho couldn't get at him. It was
after passing this ordeal, and ascending
the back stairs, that the young man in ques
tion, submit;. n! his ejaculatory inquiry.
