Although tho city of Glasgow, Scotland,
in said to consurao as much strong drink
m St. Louis, Missouri, it is urged, never
theless, that a drunken man is rarely seen
in Glasgow. The Monticcllo Bulletin ex
plains the seeming paradox by the remark
that no man is considered drunk, in Glas
gow, as long as he is able to reach home by
feeling along the walls with both hands.
Such people are merely "slightly cxhiler
ated." 8ciif arisi'xo editorially the story of the
fearful social feud in Hardin county, Illi
nois, narrated in full in tho columns of The
Bulletin, the World says: "These maraud
infjs are now going on in contempt of the
courts of the state in which Lincoln lies
buried. Yet one cabinet minister has
gone gunning after Grcenbackcrs in Maine ;
the president is at Poit Comfort; another
of the cabinet is intriguing to be confirmed
as a judge, and the postmaster general is
making his visit to Boston."
The Carbondale papers, the Tress and
Observer, are indulging in a most unseemly
newspaper quarrel. As Mr. Barton pictures
Mr. Ackerman as a miserable old fraud,
idiot and lickspittle, and as Ackerman 'a
pencil is equally severe, (though less skill
ful) in its colorings of Barton's character,
denominating him a tool, a scoundrel,
slime-6lingcr, etc., the public has chosen to
believe neither ono of them. Why, then,
continue the warfare? Nobody reads such
"stuff" approvingly good men and women
turn from it disgusted, and what must the
Innocent soul think who believes it? Fie,
you gray old rats; stop it.
TnE Kentucky election for Governor and
other Stato officers will be held to-morrow.
Dr. Luke P. Blackburn, who devoted a
month of his time to sadly-afflicted Hick
man, last year, and who was especially
careful that no news should go out to the
public unless closely associated with his
name, is tho Democratic candidate for
Governor. Ho rendorod most acceptable
services to tho sick of that section, and
showed himself a hero; but tho man who
supposes that he had no purpose aside from
those which his feelings for suffering hu
manity suggested, is entirely too innocent a
soul to venture fur from home. Telegrams
to the effect that "Dr. Blackburn will visit
every yellow fever victim in Fulton county,
if he is supplied with horses," had a'deep
cr meaning than appeared upon tho surface,
and what that meaning was tho Doctor's
present candidacy tells. But no ono con
demns. The "chances" were presented, and
lie would have shown himself a ninny had
bo permitted them to pass unimproved.
HOW TO MAKE YOURSELF CONSPIC
VOUS. As many of our citizens are now
seeking tho cool retreats of the north,
the hints contained in the following para
graph can scarcely fail to bo useful. The
; man or woman who can't feel that railroad
men are nothing more than survunts ot the
public, with no rights or immunities bo-
- youd such as their patrons are willing to
, concede- to them, ought'to stay at home. It
only luch persons as can profit by every
; one) of the suggestions given below.who are
equal to the task of bringing the "insolent
and overbearing" to a proper appreciation
,of what they're paid for.
, The first thing to do, on your arrival at
' the nation, ia to hunt up the agent, and ak
lira what tinio the next train goes. Never
mind about telling him which way, for lie
can ask you that. It will show whether
he is paying any ' attention to
your question. Then ask him what tlmo
all tho other trains come, Just to see if ho
knows. If you thiuk of it ask if they stop,
if they aro .freight or passenger and other
things that you can think of, for you know
he is paid for answering questions. It
doesn't matter whether you intend riding
on the cars or not. If you are tired, go
and sit down, but do not rest longer than
necessessary, lor you have not inquired it
th iivd f flOfbg to chango time soon, and
what time the train will bo likely to get
through on the new card. Ask him what
time the trains run by on his road, and
how much faster that is than Chicago time,
for ho knows, and if he docs not tell, it is
because he" is uncivil. Just as tho
train is coming in, and the ticket
agent ia closing his ticket window to go out
to the train, rush up and tell him you want
a ticket. Don't say anything about where
you want to go. See how near ho can guess
at it. Give him a $10 bill, and after he
has hurried up to get out his change box,
if there is any silver among it, say to him:
,"IIcrc, I guess I have got the change." for
this is tlio way to find out his disposition.
Tlion it l a good time to tell him you
have a trunk to check. Tlie world was not
mode in a day, and what's the use in being
in a hurry, you know. Put your ticket in
your pocket-book, and button two or three
coats over your pocket. Don't make a
move to ejet it ready for the conductor
until he asks you for it, for
he may miss you, and you would be that
much ahead. Then he has lots of time to
wait, but if he hasn't, it is not your fault.
During the trip ask the conductor all the
questions you asked the agent, for perhaps
the agent has lied to you about some of
them. If tho conductor answers you fcliort,
in reply to any of yours questions, it is be
causo he is mad at your buying a ticket.
He wanted you to pay him so he "could
"knock down" the money for they all
steal, you know.-r-Ex.
A fixed, unyielding determination on the
part of its owners and managers to succeed,
has brought the Cairo and St. Louis rail
road to a point where success is assured.
Few roads in the whole country have suc
cessfully contended against greater dis
couragements; and the maintenance of the
road's credit under the peculiarly adverse
circumstances and unexpected drawbacks
that beset and surrounded it, speaks of the
exercise of a financial skill and foresight
of tho highest order.
As tho Narrow-gauge has been and still
is a largo contributor to Cairo business we
havo occasion to rejoice over its triumphs,
and to note with pleasure the evidence we
have of its growing business and assured
Tho following extract, which tells what
the management has done during the year
past, and is now doing, will be read with
interest. We copy irom the railroad news'
of tho St. Louis Republican :
"The Cairo & St. Louis railroad is ex
tending its coal dump opposite the Vulcan
iron-works at Carondelet 139 feet, so that
it will have 7 feet of water when the river
has fallen ten feet below the present level.
It becomes necessary to make this improve
ment in order to ' do any business. Tho
shore line below the rock road dyke has
been undergoing the process of straighten
ing, so that tho company's coal dump
would have been left inland on the fall of
tlio present high stage of water. The ex
tension has been so managed as not to in
terfere with the dumping of coal, which
has not been intermitted since the work
commenced. Tlio coul dumped here is
the Big Muddy. Mr. Lorenzo M. Johnson,
tho general manager of the road, informed
a Republican reporter yester
day that the improvement will
be finished in less than a week.
It was further learned that tho Cairo &
St. Louis railroad has recently bought lands
in East St. Louis, from tlio Wiggins Ferry
company, at a cost of f 11,009, and the im
provements upon which will cost about
$30,000. Tho improvements will mostly
consist ot filling up to tho grado of the
lovee. It is also In contemplation to erect
anew depot the coming fall, and an engine
house and turn-table. It is cxnected tho
city of East St. Louis will, at tho same
time, fill up the extension of Front street to
its intersection with Friendly street. The,
tracks of tho Cairo & St. Louis railroad
will then bo changed so as to bo parallel
with those of the I. & St. L. and other
roads abutting on tlio river. This projected
work will add very greatly to tho appear-
auco of tlio river front of that portion of
East St. Louis in the vieiuity of tho East
St. Louis elevator.
The Cairo and St. Louis railroad has also
quite lately secured u tract oflnnd at Cairo,
For sitmo years past tho rani has been in
volved In litigation with the Cairo property
company, growing out of i claim made by
the trustees of that company that tho rail
road had forfeited lu title W a donation ot
THE DAILY CAIRO BULLETIN;
land valued ia 1874 at $150,000, becauso
of tho alleged failure of tho railroad to
protect tho Mississippi levco from tho en
croachments of the river. This litigation
has just been compromised on tho payment
of $15,000 by tho railroad to tho property
comply, thus securing at Cairo first-class
terminal facilities, including a coal-dump
and a warehouse with inclined hoisting
tracks, not inferior to any on the river.
During the first six months of tho year
1870 tho Cairo & St. Louis railroad put in
the track 30,000 new tics, and have entirely
rebuilt about a mile of bridges and have
permanently fill about 1,200 feet of high
Mr. Johnson glanced over some hblcs
and gavo tho following particulars, show
ing tho expenses of a narrow gauge road
for tho time specified. The locomotives
consume one ton of cool per 70 miles, one
pint of oil for 38 miles, and ono pound of
tallow for 7? miles of running. Engine
repairs have cost 4 3-10 cents, tho wages of
engineers, firemen, and roundhouse men
have cost 5 9-10 cents, fuel has cost l
cents and oil, tallow and waste have cost
one-quarter of a cent per mile run by the
engines, making a total for engine services
of 13 cents a mile; u result which is sel
dom equalled in the direction of econ
The above estimate is the average per
formance ol nineteen locomotives for the
month of June."
