As our reporter was passing aloii"

to buy whisky by robbing negro women's

- An individual an animated chaos of
rags, so to speak, was abroad, yesterday,
begging second hand clothing. Only a
few days before he had purchased a very
becoming suit of clothing, and was keeping
them for gala days and extraordinary oc
casious. Well supplied with new clothing;
but not otherwise, he has been compelled
to lodge in a railroad car. Yesterday
morning he awoke and, much to his horror
he discovered that his "partner" (these fel
lows always have partners) had decamped
and carried off the new stock of clothing
with him. The loser of the new clothes
was utterly crushed, and while speaking
of his loss ho found it impossible to keep
back the tears. We sympathized with him,
but a man with only one suit, is not in n
condition to be liberal in the old clothes
An Arkansas officer visited the neighbor
ing town of Smithland. a few days ago, am'
arrested a man named Dan Edmunds. The
charge against Edmunds was that he hae
killed his wife and child. He gave it out
among his neighbors that he was going to
remove to Smithland. While en route for
the river he struck his wife on the neck
with an axe, nearly severing her head from
her body. He then knocked the child in
the head with the axe, and buried both

About six weeks ago an old negro wo
man, named Phillips, died in one of the
rookeries on 5th street, and since then the
neighbors have seen lights in the house at
all hours of the night. Knowing as every
body did that the building was unoccupied,
these oft-recurring lights excited much
curiosity, ami it soon went abroad that the
house was haunted. Friday night quite a
crowd gathered about the house, the lights
were there, and conjecture ran wild in an
effort to account for their amieanmri.
About 10 o'clock Olmsted nnd Wilson
passed around that way, and concluded
that they'd explore the mystery. To the
great consternation of the superstitious
part of the crowd tjiey dashed in the door
and entered the building. In an instant
the lights were extinguished, and three or
four very substantial ghosts who were in
side, plunged out the buck way, and nearly '

The picnic of tho Cairo Reform club,
yesterday, was ull that tho most ardent ami
sanguine of the participants could have
hoped for. At the appointed hour the first
train left tho city with nine car loads of old,
middle-aged nnd young humanity, every
seat and much of the standing room being
closely and'ecouomically filled. This train
went directly through to Glen Fern with
out stopping. Then followed the way train
with seven cars, at least three of which
wero packed full by Mound Cityites.
Passing on, large delegations were picked
up at Olmsted, Grand Chain, Forman and
Vienna, so that, on arriving at the grounds,
every car and every seat was occupied. It
was but a few steps to the grounds, which
were at their best dry and rich in vari
named wild foliage. Upon the crest
of an immense moss and grass clad rock,
the May Queen, Miss Tillie Vincent, sur
rounded by her maids and knights of honor,
was duly crowned, and a very queen of
May she looked an acted. The coronation
ceremonies concluded, the Queen read an
appropriate and pleasing address, which
our reporter took down phonetically; but
we are unable to give it space. While the
groupe with its banners and gala-day ap
parel was yet in place, a Vincennes photo

no doubt, be contemplated with much in

to recognize their own faces. From the
conclusion of the crowning ceremonies the
two thousand persons present wi re govern
ed by the bent of inclination. We cannot
more fitly describe what was done than by
saying that every IkxIv put iii the day by
having a good time. Thirty gal
lons of ice cream were sent
up from Cairo, and ut o'clock
all of it had been sold. There was a great
abundance of cold water, lemonade and hot
CollVc; sandwiches, cold ham, bread, take,'
etc , so that all who didn't care to be en
cumbered with a basket found an abundant
upply of edibles and drinkables on the
ground, at bankrupt trices. The munn"ers
were on the constant alert.and through their
vigilance and good management we are en
abled to say that the great multitude was
transported to and fro, and spent the day
in the woods, without hurt or harm coining
to anyone. Taken all in all the picnic of
May 17th, was the grandest, the most enjoy
able and the best managed one in which
the Cairo people ever participated one
that will long be remcmbeied as an occa
sion of unalloyed pleasute and enjoyment.

Resolved, That we acknowledge with
deep humility and gratitude the good hand
of our God upon us, leading 119 thus far in
our campaign against intemperance and
evil. Well may the Woman's Christian
Temperance Union say, "If it had not been
the Lord, who was on our side, when men
rose up against us. then the waters had
overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over
our soul." That wc will not desert from
tho regular army of His workers, but will
continue to make supplication before Him,
and to hear what God the Lord will speak,
and will not "turn ugain to folly." "Surely
his salvation is nigh them that fear him;
that glory may dwell in our land." Know
ing that it is easier to form than to reform,
and recognizing the fact that the continu

men and women of the future; therefore

will use our influence with the profession to

Resolved, That as the nppctite for intoxi
cating liquors has been known to become
excited by the smell and taste of wine, the
W. C. T. U. will do all in its power to in
fluence all Christian denominations to dis
continue the use of fermented wines at
communions. And that we will prepare
specimens of the canned juice of the grape,
suitable for that .purpose.
Re-solved, That we recognize it as one of
our most important duties to avail ourselves
of the influence of the press, in dissemin
ating temperance truth, to its largest possi

pers, by a committee from each local
Union, and to the personal attention of all
our members who can send items and let

Resolved, That while we cordially co
operate with all other temperance organiza

members of the Reform Club the necessity
of avoiding the appearance of evil by visit

To business men and men of Re.lcnMrv
liaints, the question oT exercise and recre
ation is a vital ono. Of course there are
endless varieties of amusement that may
be indulged in, some leing beneficial and
desirable, while others arc pernicious and
to be deprecated. Among forms of inno
cent diversion, a game of billiards may be
commended as being a mild form of exer
cise which sufficiently occupies the mind to
dispel thoughts of business, while it brings
into action almost every muscle in the
Billiards, like every other game or
amusement may be perverted; but the le
gitimate use of the ball or cue is undoubt
edly beneficial. The game is a social one,
and may be propirly played by both sexes,
as is shown by the constantly increasing de
mand for billiard tables and their appur
tenances. In Cairo, as in other cities, there are
many lovers of this amusement, but where
billiard tables have heretofore been found,
drinks of an intoxicating kind have been
the principal part of traflic, and to this
fact may be attributed the lack of interest
shown in the game in this city during the
past few years. Many of our most promi
nent citizens, men of strict habits,
are ardent admirers of the game of
billiards, but, have preferred giving up
its pleasures, to throwing themselves liable
to the criticisms of their neighbors.
Knowing this to 1 e a fact and believinrr
that a billiard parlor, without a bar, would
reimburse him for whatever outlay such an
institution might necessitate, Mr. Fred
Teichman, a gentleman whose social char
acter and business qualities are well known
to the people of Cairo, has fitted up, adjoin
ing Mrs. Swander's Millinery establish
ment, in Winter's block, a suite of rooms,
which will be known in the hereafter as
Teichman 'a Billiard Parlors.
These rooms, centrally located, under the
direct supervision of Mr. Teichman, having
been remodeled, excellently ventilated,
newly painted and decorated, arc supplied
with two of the celebrated J. M. Bruns
wick & Blako monarch tables, und the
finest of balls nnd cues. It is by far the
most pleasant resort ever provided for the
people of Cairo, and may be visited by the
strictest of our church-going people with
impunity, for nothing can be found there
that can justly be condemned, the only
drink to be had being water pure, cold
Opened less than a week ago, Teifhman's
Billiard Parlors aro already popular, and
will continue to grow in tavor. They nrc
