It is found that the drive wi lls r-unk
in the city will furnish a constant stream of
water, w ithout any signs of exhaustion, lor
hours, even days, the lull size of the tube
used. Thin being true, why couldn't such
wells be made to serve the es of . "lire

their streams united, would furnish water
an inexhaustible supply, tor any lire en

less than that of a cistern, and the water
would always be there.
Immense crowds attended the Thistle
wood meeting at the Tenth street music

sky-rockets, fire crackers, and yelling lxys
to draw the crowds together and then an
noy them after they got 'em together.
There was a tremendous amount of enthu
siasm manifested, and Uth meetings were
protracteit until a late hour.
We saw more men' under the influence
of liquor, yesterday, than we have seen
during any whole week of the year past.
Among these were two or three men who
always lose their wits when excited by
liquor, and make themselves obnoxious to al
who may chance to meet them. "The elec

wc must confess. Iiut it will all conic around
right, next week, they say. and it is to
be hoped that such yill be the case.

An effort is being made to make the num

votes will be sold to the highest bidder.

A young man li'om some ncb'.hliorhood
in the surrounding country, attracted con
siderable notice, yesterday, and couldn't
tell why, for the life of him. He was the
awkwardest, most gaugling. loose-jninled,
"sloiumicky'' walker ever set n in Cairo,
aud being such, he attracted attention be
cause he wore the uniform of a soldier.
After loafing about the city
several hours. he abmrlied
divers and sundiy kinds of invig
orating cordials, inquiring for ami drink
ing a different kind in every saloon he pa
tronized. About the middle of the after
noon, feeling in a merry mood, he plunged
into a crowd of boys for the fun of "seeing
'em scatter," and if ever a poor devil paid
dearly for an indifcretion, k was that
stranger. For a lull hour lie lived iu the
midst of a shower of clods, mud,
oyster cans, cinders, coin-cobs
and missilels of every description
the youngsters could employ. This blind
ing shower was kept up for a full hour or
more, the stranger running after and from
the boys, until finally human nature could
stand no more, and the great gaw ky fellow
blubbered out-right, bawling like a hoarse
voiced sea calf. This terminated the strife
of course; and should that youth visit Cairo
every week, here il'ter, he will never again
"have fun" by plunging into a crowd of
boys to see 'em st utter.

1 am pleased to see our fair friend, the
versatile "Rcntrice's" explanation. It looks
well, and is satisfactory; but I ain not quite
clear in my own mind, as to how we are to
accept her concession to those "blessed wo
men." "Itcatrice's" article on Fashion led
me to supKisu her to be as her soubriquet
implied, a woman; but if she is, then never
woman Is'tore her wielded pen so fraught
with keenest satire. Thirty rears of tin
paralleled devotion to Dress Reform might,
writes this woman (?) have resulted in
gaining for us poor women the respect and
esteem of our husbands, brothers, sons and
fathers, and then, alter that, the millenium
after that, equal rights for all! Could
any woman say as much as that and not
sav it in purest sarcasm? From a man it
sounds familiar if not kind. Rut let us see
how the suggestion would really work, tak
ing tor our example what we know of tin
past. The lust year of the war heralded
freedom to a fearful mass of ignorant hu
man beings, numbering in all upwards of
four millions. To that portion,
only, pronounced masculine, was given
political liberty. Wtty this discrimination
in confering the blei-sed lon of freedom
on these children of bondage? The
shackles of our own forging we let rot
and wear in human flesh for a hundred
years ere. we lifted the hand to strike them
asunder. Why did wc give to the man
our slave - that which we withheld from
his wife, our slave, also? Was it that he
was mom circumspect in ins manner ot
dress and thus won our respect and esteem
mat we gave to mm, only, the riuht to
make the luw that govern hira? Hud
dress or a regard for personal appearance,
or a disregard for tl. anything whatever
to do with it? DiH-.s it seem reasonable to
suppose thai it can have or ever could have
had anything to do with the right of suf
frage U'ing conferred on tiny one? Could
anything be more completely simple and
void ot all attempt t style than the dress of
the poor shi,. women uuless it be the
dre-sof mother Eve, itself, and even that
it. must be admitted, was not so fur
, in advance in the inntier of nimpliciiv, to
the actual dress worn by smne of our own

ly with the fate of these ,lir orcutures be

the eyes of lordly man. for that one defect
in the structure of the constitution of the
United States that makes of m,in, alone, a
citizen; and ofwomnn im infant or an idiot,
