Parties who buy wood from tho coun
try wagons and pay at the rate of $2.50 a
cord therefor, are apt to conclude there is
"money in the wood business," These par
ties scarcely reflect that the countyman from
whom they buy probably pay 20 or 2j
cents a cord for the wood in tho tree; 73
cents a cord for the cutting, and then em
ploys a man and a two horse team a whole
day in order to get a cord or two loads of
it, into market. Where, under such circum
stances the chance for "money making
comes in, is directly tho reverse of obvious.
Tho members of tho graduating class
who yet hold tho manuscript of their respec
tive essays, will oblige us by delivering it
to Mr. Burnett, of Tue Bulletin, that we
may publish such ess.iys as may prove best
suited to the spaco we may have to devote
to that character ot matter. It is our wish
to publish at least four or five a week until
all of them aro disposed of. When re
quested to do so we preserve the manu
script, a little the worse of wear for having
passed the ordeal ot tho composing room,
but still legible.
Ding Tftylor, the boot-black who broke
a pane ot glass in Desmouia's window, was
brought before Squire Robinson, yesterday,
and in consideration of the fact that he
contributes to the support of his father, who
is paralyzed and helpless, the Squire let
him off upon the payment of the cost of
suit and the bill for reglazing the broken
window. The total will foot up four or five
dollars, and its payment from ids slowly
accumulating nickles will probably teach
the young man that the paths of peace are
the pleasantest paths, and that a disregard
for tho rights and property of others is
liable, at any time, to become expensive.
Mrs. Anthony Smith is given to peri
odical rampages. Iu the interval she be
haves herself rationally, and gives due at
tention to her household duties; but when
she yields to the seductions of tho wine cup,
she loses all sense of decency, and appar
ently all control of both mind and body.
She has often figured in the police reports;
but never (hiring her intervals of sobriety.
Tuesday evening she commenced her peri
odical debauch, and yesterday morning she
was found lying in the street, opposite the
Presbyterian church in a condition of lim
ber, helpless drunkenness. She was carted
to the calaboose, and during the day sha
remained in a state of only, semi-consciousness.

the cool breezes of lake Superior, or the

may find an excuse for excursions to cool-ing-off

for such migratory movements have yet
been presented, either in the health ot the
city or the temperature ot the season.
Johnny Smith and Frank Brnnnett,
alias "Broeky," struck the city, yesterday,
and gave out intimations that they had come
to stay awhile. But, unfortunately for the
success of Johnny and Broeky's designs,
officer John Sheehan had become advised
of their presence in the city, and knew them
of old as a pair of confidence chaps and
unconscionable dead beats. They were,
therefore, kindly but firmly admonished by
that officer, that Cairo would prove an un
healthy beat for them, and if they enter

our streets as members ot the chain gang,
the proper thing for them to do would bo

Monday's issuo of tho Louisville
Courier-Journal is the largest single sheet

alleged, that was ever printed in America.
The sheet will measure about flvo by six
feet, and is as largo as an ordinary bed

advertising space of this mammoth issue,
is filled with Chicago advertisements. Tho
complaints of tho Chicago newspaper men
are well grounded. When a foreign paper
throws under their eyes advertising favors
worth thousands of dollars, that wero de

patronage than any Chicago paper of that

Work upon the Cache river iron

men say that tho bridge will bo turned

weeks. This being true, it behooves our
authorities to put tho road connecting with
it in proper condition at once. We are in
formed that much uork remains to be per
formed on the road, and that if it is com
menced immediately the bridge will be
finished before the road work will be
brought to such a state of forwardness as
will render the bridge readily accessible. A

It seems to us that the importance of
extending t the St. Charles hotel, the Plan
ters and other first class hotels of Cairo, a
liberal support; is not fully appreciated by
our citizens. Next to her schools and news
papers, tho reputition of a cityVde'pends
upon tho maintenance ot its deserving ho
tels. Cairo cannot afford to have it go
abroad that her largest and finest hotel is
closed for want of patronage, yet our peo
ple have appeared quited indifferent, in
times past, about extending the patronage
necessary to prevent such a calamity. The
announcement that tho Sherman House had
closed for want of patronage, would cut
more deeply into the reputation of Chicago
than would nnotner lire like that of seven
years ago. The St. Charles is more to
Cairo than the Sherman is to Chicago, and
the effect of closing it would be correspond
ingly disastrous. We do not wish to be
understood as intimating that any such a
calamity is threatmed. Tho establishment
is in good hands, and lsjsaid to be prosper

awaken a though! as to the necessity of do

Parties to do pending election con
tests, accompanied by their respective at
torneys, called upon tho city clerk, yester
day, and demanded tho ballots and poll
books of tho recent election, alleging us a
reason tor the demand thatit was their pur
poso to canvass the returns with the view of
obtaining facts, bearing upon tho contest.
The clerk refused to produce the docu
ments, urging that ho knew no dillerenee
between the present parly and any other
party of men, and that if tiif.y could take
them out of his hands, any other persons
who might set up the claim that they wero
parties to a contest, might do tho samo
thing. Ho would not deliver thorn up, he
said, unless they brought an order from the.
County Judge, before whom the proceed
ings had been inaugurated. This tho ap
plicants refused to do, and declared that,
under tho law, Ihey had a right to the
poscssion of tho teturns. Tho law touching
tho matter reads as follows : "In all cast s
of contested elections tho parties contesting

chap. 40 Rev. Stat, 1877. Ono or two of
tho parties in interest contended that the
clerk was right, t.iat lie had no right to as
sumc that the applicants were parties to a
contest, or even to accept their verbal as
surances that they were such parties; and
further, that the law simply contemplated
the production o: the returns during the
progress of the contest before the proper
tribunal; that if such i3 not the meaning
of the hw, the expression
"and such billots referred to by
tho witnesses" was a nonsensical surplusage.
On the other haud, it was contended that
the law meant nothing but what it said;
the parties to the pending contest were
present, and they had the right under the
law. to examine the returns. The clerk
persisted in his refusal, however, and the
crowd dispersed, some of the parties visibly
out of humor.
JIany of the little boot-blacks that in
fest the city are driven to the adoption of
that industry as a means of supplying
themselves, nn'd in some instances helpless
parents, with the bread and meat essential
to their existence. Others havo adopted
the calling because more readily and rap
idly than in any other manner, they can
gather the nickles that enable them to at
tend all the shows, procure ice cream, pop
and oranges and bananas. It is the pres
ence of these last described youngsters in
the "polishing off'' fraternity, that lead our
citizens to regard every boot-black as a
pest, and boot-blacks in the aggre
gate, as an intolerable nuisance.
The individual who walks from to the post
ollice to the St. Charles hotel is asked a
score of times, before he reaches his jour
ney's end, if he wont have a polish? Iu
many cases the little rascals arc insultingly
persistent, and will lollow the besieged
party a full block, trying to convince him
of the propriety of investing a nickle iu
"a shine" for his boots' sake. If his boots
happen to betray a need of the shine, his
refusal to invest will probably call out sun
dry verbal missiles like the following: "Oh,
let him alone Charley. He's never com
fortable unless he's nasty." "Get away
from the old galloot. Can't you tell by the
looks of 'im, he makes his wife black his
lxiots?" "He wouldn't let you black 'em
for nothin' unless you gave him a chroino!"
"Let the hog wallow in his hastiness; leave
the old hog and his boots to Wootcn. He'll
boost 'em over tho Mississippi levee, coy,
they're likely to bring on the yaller fever!"
And so on, as long us the victim remains
within ear shot. Sharp, pungent things
arc said by the little rascals; and the man
who attempts to parley with them is cer
tain to come out of tho contest worsted.
Nobody likes to be subjected to the
ordeal we have described; but that
fact makes no difference to the boys.
Tho individual who likes it the least
is liable to get tho most of it; hence it is be
coming rather n serious question: "how
shall we eliminate the obnoxious clement
from our multitude of boot blacks?" To
drivo them all from tho streets, would de
prive a number of invalid and helpless men
and women of tho meager mentis of sup
port they obtain through their boys thus
engaged. If licenses wero required, tho
rulllanly, impudent little urchins would be
the only chaps that would be able to com
ply. The truth is the matter 'presents dif
ficulties when contemplatoj from any

would not know how to deal with it, if tt
should become our duty to do so.
