She will be here next Saturday, and will of
course, as proper preliminary, advertise
in The Bulletin.
The Belle of Cairo is manufactered and
sold at the corner of Fourteenth and Wash

The fire companies were out again, Inst
night, drilling for tlie rtpproaching water-

result in the emptying of the' foul contents
of the market space cistern, it would un
doubtedly remove a disease-breeding nui

among the policemen. Wilson and Olm

notwithstanding its numerical insignifi

The record made by the pupils of Miss
Ilogan's grammar department, during the

pride themselves, for we doubt much if a

the deportment of eighteen was marked
100, or unexceptionable, and the scholar

A case involving several interesting
lawpointscanieon for hearing before Squire
Comings yesterday, consuming the greater
portion of the day. The case involved the
right of the loser of a wager to replevy the

of replevin would hold good; nnd the de

May were not canvassed Friday night until
nearly 12 o'clock. The contest was quite

the. lfith inst., at Glen Fern, be crowned the
Queen of M.iy. Eleven hundred und ninety-one
votes were pulled, netting to the

"The Oracle" is the name of an 8 by 12
inch amateur weekly that reaches us from
Columbus, Ky. It claims to be the "college
oracle"; and that it is an fait in educational
matters, witness the following: "Wc had
while in Cairo on Monday, the pleasure ol
viewing the interior of the High sclnol, of
that place. We found the teachers all com-
petent for the ifice which they held. The
classes come and go regularly as clock
work by the tap of the bell." All of which
is well meant, if not well said.

To-morrow will be a day of excite

Fully a half dozen persons gave us to
understand, yesterday, that they had always
known that Miss Belle Gaffney was the
possessor of extraordinary dramatic talent
that needed only the merest touch of cul
ture to hasten it into full blooming. It is
somewliat remarkable, however, that a hint
of this was never giveu until the young
lady went elsewhere and compelled recog

his own country" or words to that effect.

The committee appointed under a reso
lution adopted by the Taxpayers' associa
tion to obtain signatures to a petition, pray
ing that the law (Tenting the Graud Jury
abomination be repealed, entered upou a
discharge of its duty, yesterday. The pe
tition merely sets forth that the Grand
Jury is not not ccntial in the admiuis
tration of justice, serves to delay the exe
cution of the law, is cumbersome, expen
sive and utterly useless. To all of which
quite everybody assented who were nsked
to sign the petition. The system, or the
necessity for it las been outlived, and it
should go down and out.
Thursday night, a man carrying a shot

about a mile above the city, and put out
down the river. The owner of the skill'

cured a shot gun, jumped into another skiff
and made chase. The fugitive seeing that
he would be overtaken, fired on his pursuer,
which fire was promptly returned. A third
and a fourth shot Were fired, but with what
result is not known. It being a bright
night, the pursuer was seen, from this side,
to overhaul the pursued, and escort him
back to the shore. What followed this de
ponent saith not.
The W. C. U. Temperance convention,
that is to convene in this city next Wednes
days.hould enlist not only the sympathy .but
the active co-operation of every friend of
the cause in (ho city. It is expected that
that there will be a respectable attendance
from abroad. Let these visitors then, on
their arrival here, uot only be hospitably
provided for, but be assured as well by
deeds as by words, that they were invited
to Cairo upon no idle pretense, to witness no
hollow forms and ceremonies, but to coun
sel and act with men ami women who jmvc
enlisted heart and soul in the caiisi;, mid
who are determined not to weary in their
well-doing. "Greet the strangers well,"
then, und let them feel that the service in
which they are enlisted makes them of kin.

that the city would be relieved of his un

his tine, and expressed a determination to
stay awhile. Unless he changes his line of

Much disappointment was expressed
ami much more felt, yesterday evening,
when it 'oceanic known that Mrs. Calv
Stanton would not be here to fiil her en
gagemcut to lecture in the Atheneum. The
lecture-goers of the city hud made up their
minds to hear Mrs. Stanton, and, of coursi
no substitute, however eminent or learnei
would have entirely removed the feeling of
disappointment. Those who attended, how
ever, were abundanly repaid for doing so
Miss Eva L. Piny, of Ohio, appeared as
Mrs. S's substitute and delivered her care

"It possesses merits unattainable by the old method of combining paint " '
It can be applied with great facility and perfect regularity; dries with a rich, glossy
surface, and will not chalk or crack oil'. It never separates, is always ready for
use, und will not spoil when exposed to the air. It can be applied by any one
