Health Officer Yooten gave quite an
extensive circulation, yesterday, to the

of us might profit.
James Robinson being unablo to per

price of circus license, will spread his can
vas on the Illinois shore, and give every
body free ferriage across the river. His ap
plication to the Cairo council tor a like re

A force of carpenters and laborers will

the depot grounds of the Cairo and Vin

able to learn any of the details; but have
been assured that the company proposes to
go right ahead with the work.
Thursday evening, while the premises
were vacated, a sneak-thief entered the
office of Yocum, the ice man, and got away
with an overcoat and a pair of boots, tho
property, we believe, of Mike Stapleton.
The man who steals an overcoat while the
mercury is dodging up and down in the

tice and inclination. He is irreclaimuMy

The purpose of Miss Rogers to decline
are-engagement in the Cairo schools, de
prives us of the best primary teacher we
ever had. Her pupils love her as a moth
er, and not a few of tho littlo faces were
wet with tears, yesterday, when she ex
pressed her determination to go away and
return no more. We hope our Board will
be able to induce Miss Rogers to reconsid
er her resolution.
Collie Harris got upon the rampage,
Thursday evening, and but for the good
natured restraint imposed by her even
tempered husband, would have smashed
things. Her rage was terrible. She was
brought belore Squire Robinson, yesterday,
who inflicted on her a fine of $3 and costs.
Her husband secured the payment of tho
amount, and thus saved the rampunctious
Callic from a term in the cooler.
Tho Jonesboro Gazette has a corres
pondent who writes over the initials, "D.
T. L." As the correspondent writes from
Dongola, and is a careful dotter down of
dog-fights, crop prospects, etc., it is only
fair thnt we relieve Mr. Linegar. ot this
city, who sports the sumo initials, of the
responsibilities that may grow out of tho
correspondence. Mr. Linegar is not the
D. T. L., of the Jonesboro Gazette.
Miss Loflin and Miss Riley, teachers
of rooms 1 and 2 in tho Thirteenth street
building toasted their pupils, yesterday, on
cake, candy, nuts, etc., a treat that was
highly relished. Daring the scholastic
year just closed, James Sprout, Egbert
Kerth, Freddie and Ida Poore, ol Miss
Riley's room, were neither absent nor tardy
Willie Caster, Willie Lamport, Berth
Wright and Tillie Bross, of Miss Loflin's
room, were neither absent nor tardy. Maude
Oliver, Mamio Lansden and Nora Redman
were absent only one day.
All sorts or reports were current yes
terday concerning the successes and failures
of Harlem, on tho St. Louis race course.
One report, in which there is probably
some truth, is to the effect that in tho milo
dash for all ages, run on Thursday, he was
the leading animal at tho end ot a half
mile, and nt tho three-quarter stako occu
pied a creditable position, but was left be
hind two or three of the horses at tho out

gro to "get outofthat."Tho negro impudent

cular leg instantly shot forward, and land-
od on tho side of the . black man's head.

emly protested tint lie had "never opened

to be puuished.
In Alexander county Mr. Lansden ran
ahead of both Crawford and Browning,
despite the efforts of Mr. Baker's Demo
cratic friends to cut down his vote. In
Franklin county ho ran ahead of Crawford ;
in Hardin county ho ran ahead of Brown
ing; and in Union county ho ran ahead of
Browning. We mention these facts to
disabuse tho mind of tho editor of the
Marion Press, of the impression that Mr.
L. was the hindmost candidate in detail, as
well as in tho general result. While the
Democrats of Alexander county have oc
casion to feel ashamed of themselves as
Democrats, tho fact is undeniable that the
Democrats of thoso counties that sought
L's defeat in the convention, permitted their
opposition to him to go beyond the con
vention, and tell its story in the ballot box.
The Hibernian fire company has, as
wo elsewhere remark, concluded to cele
brate the coming 4th in St. Mary's park.
The committee of arrangements will arrange
an attractive programme, and in doing so
will need, and should receive, outside help.
It is proposed, for instance, to provide a
purse for a horse race, give a display of tire
works, and offer other attractions, to amuse
and enthuse all who may attend. As there
will be no charge for admission to the
grounds, it can not reasonably be expected
that the expense incurred in perfecting ar
rangements that are made forthe special
enjoyment of the public should be borne
by the company alone. It will perform its
part and perform it well ; but it is a trite
though rather crude maxim that thoso who
dance should pay the piper. Should the
committee call upon our people, as we hear
it will, the response should be cheerful and
liberal, one or the other, in any event.
A horse belonging to one Jacob Green,
has been in tho habit of grazing on the
sward east of . the court house. Metcalf
owns a swarm of bees that has been restive
for a day or two. and yesterday it conclu
ded to migrate and "swarm" elsewhere.
The horse in question was in the route
of the bees' flight, and a few hundred of
them sought a resting spell on his back.
But the animal wasn't willing. He whisked
his tail about with great vigor, and
finally drew upon himself about halt the
swarm, probably a couple of thousand.
The antics that horse then cut would beg
gar the pen of a Dickens. A brisker tail
never graced a specimen of the equine
species; and such stamping, plunging,
rearing and prancing side-ways, such mad
cavorting as those in which the bee-beset
animal indulged, can be pictured by
neither brush or pencil. The bees unloaded
themselves perhaps driven to it by tho
perspiration they had excited, possibly in
mercy to the poor 1'orse, whom they had
tortured to the utmost limit of endurance.
The members of the so-called Bryant's
Southern minstrels troupe who were desert
ed by the proprietor and treasurer in Padu
cah, pawned their instruments ns security
for the payment of their board bills, ami
set out for their homes in Jackson, Tennes
see, on foot. Two of them arrived in Cairo
on Thursday, and reading in The Bulle
tin ot that day that the company's stand
ard of excellence was not considered of
the dazzling order, they expressed a savage
losire to cat tho editor up as a lunch be
tween meals. Tho size of The Rclletin
building may have hail a restraining effect
upon them, for had tliey explored that
structure, and taken the measuro of tho in
mates, they would nt once have become irre
conciluble. Nothing short of n tight would
have pacified them. But had this brace
of boys been philosophers, their experience
would have been accepted as a full contir
rriation of Tiif.'Bullktin's strictures. The
company was not n failure because The
Bt'i.LKTi.N so denominated it. On the con
trary, The Bulletin denominated it a
failure because it whs a failure. Only that
and nothing more.
Our late city attorney tells rather a
good ono at his own expense. Thursday
night was, as everybody knows, excessively
hot. The young man retired to his virtu
ous couch about 9 o'clock, and sweltered,
punted and puffed in thcclose nirof liis room
until 11 o'clock. Arising and rehabilita
ting his stately proportions (so to speak)
ho sought tho cool current of air that
sweeps down Sixth street, over the chicken
coops at Kluge's corner. Seating himself
upon the coops, and releasing his number
11 feet from the new pair of number 0
shoes ho was wearing, and placing his cas
simere chiipeau by his side, the cooling
zephyrs soon wooed him into a
deep and welcomed slumber. And
while yet ho slumbered a son of
"Africa's ' golden strands" happened
around that way, and lifted tliat cassimcre
chapouu, thoso new nnd tightly fitting
shoes and tho contents of tho sleeper's
pockets, and thus supplied, that frolicksome
son of sunny Kthiop hied himself
away. In due time tho sleeper awoke.
How he swore until the corner of Sixth and
Commercial was all alilu.c blue
streaks of unstudied profanity, nnd how
the sulphurous smell of disputed oaths
marked his way as, liatless ami In hU
stocking feet, ho wended hi vmm i0tae.
ward, will never bo known save to thoso
who were thero to soo ami hear him.
Neither tho new shoes nor tho cassimcre
hat has beca found. Concerning the money
ho lost, the corner sleeper says not a word
only "it's no matter;" and as money is
matter, the remark is problematical.
Years of experience enables tho aver
age policeman to detect tfio thief or rascal
on sight. There is an indescribuble some
thing in tho bearing, cnuntcnanco or con
duct of tho wrong-doer that gives him away
every timo ho comes in contact with tho ex
perienced policeman. A few days ago, a
stranger arrived in Cairo, bringing with
him a horse. Tho average citizen could
detect uo difference between this stfangcr
and his horso and any other mounted stran
ger, but not so with tho practiced eye of the
old policeman. John Sheehan saw tho
man, and had not eyed him two seconds
until ho decided that the fellow was a thief,
anil a horse thief nt that. Assured ot tho
correctness of his conjectures he took the
fellow in charge, wormed from him the
name of J. W. Alexander, and the fact that
he bad come from Memphis. Mr. Sheehan
immediately wired the Memphis Chief of
Police, nnd was informed, in due time, that
Mr. J. W. Alexander was wanted in Mem
phis to answer the charge of horse-steal
ing. The animal he had in his possession
had been stolen from the Third street liv
cry stable As Alexander did nothing that
was inconsistent with an honest ownership
of the horse, what did Sheehan see in the
man that marked him as a horse thief?
The great and constantly growing de
mand for freight cars on the western and
southern roads, suggests the establishment
here in Cairo of nn establishment to supply
Mint demand. No where else in the United
States, perhaps, can there bo found so many
of the pre-requisitcs to success. Every well
built car in use in the South and Southwest
is of Northern or Eastern manufacture
was brought from points a thousand miles
distant, and the material of which it was
constructed was collected at the manufac
tory trom points perhaps equally re
mote. That a large and properly managed
car building industry here in Cairo" would
be well patronized is incontestibly proven
by the fact that the needs of the South cre
ate a large demand; and that such an in
dustry would prove immensely remunera
tive is susceptible of ncttinl demonstration.
In the item of lumber and timber the con
venience and low price of pine, oak and
hickory Cairo poseses an advantage that
ought to, in itself, give tho manufacturer
here n good margin fur profit. But this is
but one of the grand total of the advantag
es that will impress itself upon any intelli
gent man that may choose to enter upon an
investigation, While the locality presents
all the advantages presented by the most
favored points, it also presents many and
most important ones that arc peculiar to
itself. Hence, let a car building interest
in Cairo be established when it may, the
mnn or set of men who establish it, will
have started themselves on the high road to
If newspaper men were infalible the
pursuit of the profession would be a "life
among tho roses." But, being as they are,
very close akin to humanity in general, they
are given to tho errors nnd short-sightedness
of their kind mistakes and blunders
that bring them in almost daily contact
with broad-shouldered men who, in a show
of no gentle mood, demand to know "why
in h 11 they did," or "why in h 11 they
didn't?" ' Only ycBtcrday we expressed the
hope that tho Deltas, Arabs, Roughs, Cas
inos, Turners or some other organization
of the city, would engineer a celebration of
the coming 4th, in St. Mary's park. We
didn't mention the Hibernians because we
had received the impression tlmt it was the
purpose of that enterprising organization
to xcurse across inc river nna picnic in
tho woods of Kentucky; and, further, we
concluded that, whether the impression was
authorized or unauthorized, the remark
"or some other respectable organization"
would certainly include the Hibernians. It
turned out, however, that our impression
was at fault. While we were writing the
paragraph in question, tho Hibernians were
in session, arranging tho preliminaries for
a celebration of tho 4th in the park; and
had never even discussed the project of a
celebration elsewhere. Wo feel kindly (lis
posed towards the Hibernians. Tliey have
been steadfast and liberal patrons of The
Bulletin office, and as they are prompt
and efficient firemen, wo arc glad to num
ber thoni among our near neighbors; henco

reference to their proposed celebration in

Have we not had enough. of the "Negro
Mother" business published? "Modestus,"
we admit, is earnest in his efforts, and
wishes to remedy the evil ; but is not the
cure as bad as the disease! in this, that it
is bringing into too prominent notice of the
young girls and boys of Cairo, a subject
that cau do them no good ; on the coutrary is
opening up a field of speculation and
thought that may have other results not
contemplated by "Modestus.'' You know

The question at issue cannot be attectcd
by newspaper talk, save it be in a call for
those wishing a reformation to hold a meet
ing and adopt plans. As it is now, it is a
discussion in which the real sufferers take
no part, and which the transgressors will
probably never read; leaving the reading
and speculation to the families of your sub
scribers who are thus brought face to face
with it in hours of idleness. Wherever
there is a colored girl employed, it will be
the means of opening up a conversation be
tween some younger member of the family
and herself upon this subject that may
start a train of thought or feeling thr.t may
result in great harm.
