A civil suit was determined before
Squire Comings, yesterday, that illustrates
the folly of going to law about trifles. The
amount in question was five dollars, and
the cost attending the suit footed up $8.85.

There was a small war among the
boot-blacks Saturday evening late. A
cjuple of "colored" blacks Irom Mound
City, 111., appearing upon the streets, the

The city in enforcing the collection of
license money has no desire to exact more
than its own. In cases where delinquents
plead guilty, the collection of fine imposed
is not insisted upon, if licenses are taken
out at once thereafter. A payment of cost,
under such circumstances, forms the only
On Sunday evening last Aniandus
Jacckel, late of this city, was picked up in
St. Louis, bleeding freely from "one of the
varicose veins," and conveyed, to the hos
pital for treatment. We regret to add that
the St. Louis Republican, in giving tho
particulars of the affair, added that Jaeckel
was deeply intoxicated.

--Mrs. N's cow wandered into Mrs. R's
garden yesterday, and was savagely beaten.
It is said that Mrs. E. belabored tho ani
mal with a board, and her boy with a stilt,
from the staff of which tho head of a nail
protruded. Mrs. N. sued out a warrant for
Mrs. E's arrest, and the case will be heard
and determined by Squire Comings to-day.
With tho heat at 90 and with six dozen
ferocious mosquitoes to tlio cubic inch, the
individual who was charged with any other
duty, yesterday, than that of keeping cool,
was unfortunate. The miserable wretch
who, thus beset, was compelled to grind
out three or four colums of local matter for
the next day's paper, was an object deserv
ing ot pity. And of such were we.
Tho steam "hand-car" at tho Illinois
Central depot, brought down the road on n

day. It is provided with comfortable seats,
and (if the reader will allow us to repeat
tho language of the gentleman who wus
descanting upon its merits)"run like devil."
It is satd that the company has several
steam hand cars in use on the upper end of
A handsome little quarto daily, called
"Among tho Clouds," printed on tho sum
mit of Mt. Washington, N. II., contains in
its issue of Friday last, tho following para
graph: "W. L. Wright, editor of the
Egyptian Star, of Cairo, 111., was registered
at the Summit House, last evening. He
was accompanied by Elmer L. Comings.
Both walked from tho I'nbyau House to tho
Summit, having missed the train."
The price of shaving and hair-cutting
has dropped down to tho figures of ante
bellum times; the dollar again buys 10 to
18 lbs. of mgar, 10 yards of "factory" and
20 yards of calico. Money has appreciated,
and quite everything clso bus depreciated
in value. All this being undeniable, we
have been requested to inquire why the
citizens of Culro do not cuforoc a corres
ponding reduction in the price per cord for
wood sawing? One dollar and fifty cents
were paid during tho war, when tho labor
ing man received $3.00 cr day. Tho same
sura is esueUd uow, although laboring men
CAIRO BULLETIN! WEDNESDAY MOKMNtf. AUGUST 6, 1879,
obtain only $1.00 and $1.35. The price is
exorbitant; and our pcoplo should give em
ployment to no man who insists upon it. A
light movablo "power saw" could "com
moucy"at $1 per cord, and it is somewhat
surprising that somebody has not made a
venture in that direction, before this time.
It lmving been demonstrated that one
slop wagon was not equal to tho slop ser
vice of the whole city, a second team has
been put on; but whether for full or partial
time we have not learned. The first, second
aud third wards furnish about all the slops
that one team can haul away. The fourth
and fifth wards arc not so sloppy; but cm
brace a scope of territory so much greater
than the other wards that the labor is quite
as great the travel greater,
Two weeks ago our blackberry ped
dlers admonished us to get berries while
we could, as the crop was quito exhausted.
Y'e sterday and tho day before nnd right
straight along, tho peddlers have been as
thick in the city and quite as importunate
as lemonade peddlers in a circus tent. But
notwithstanding the apparent abundance,
the price has been rigidly maintained at
ten cents a quart a price that has proved
prohibitory to prudent families who con
templated canning a supply tor winter.
John Brown becoming incensed at one
of the frail inmates of Ids mother's house,
Monday niht, forgot her sex and his own,
and gave her a threshing. An officer took
John under arrest, and set about the look
ing up of witnesses. Returning a few min
utes later, tho officer found that John had
betaken himself away, and has, it is to be
hoped, left the city. The case is not a very
aggravating one, and the city can well en
dure the nffront to the majesty of its ordin
ances if the nymph-beater will remain away
During the month of July Squire Rob
inson passed upon torty-seven city cases.
The fines lie imposed amounted, in the Ag
gregate, to $187. Of this sum he collected
thirty-five dollars, or nearly twenty per cent.
The collections, 'though small, are much
beyond the average. During the four
months immediately preceding his retire
ment from office, Judge Bird's fines figured
up a large sum, but the colcctions fell below
ten per cent, of the total. From March
1805 to March 1806, the police magistrates
paid into the treasury the sum of $5,000.
Tho hacks that run hither and thither,
in the city, are a tolerable substitute for
street cars. But there is no system in their
movements, and, as a consequence, citizeus
are compelled to catch them when they
can. This involves a loss of time in watch
ing; but this is tolerable if the hack finally
comes around. The principal "cursing" is
occasioned by the driver's disregard for
his promises. To watch a half hour or
more on the strength of a promise, and then
be compelled to walk your journey on foot,
opens Op one of the most eligible opportu
nities for animated swearing, of which' we
have any conception.
Dr. Boyd, of Smithland, recently ad
ministered poison to his two little boys, by
mistake. In less than a hour both of them
died. They were bright, promising little
lads, and the doctor is well nigh crazed be
cause of the terrible mistake. It was only
a few mouths ago that Mrs. Dr. Waldo,
living only a few miles from the doctor,
killed her little son in identically the same
manner. It is about time, we think, that
the parents of that locality lenrn to exercise
a little greater care in dosing their children.
For a practicing physician to kill two of
liis own children in tho manner related, is
Mclvina Thomas and her husband
separated, some time ago, aud Thomas
making his home with Mr. and Mrs. Butler j
exceted Melvina's jealousy. Having a tongue
that "never catches on tho center Mel
vania became abusive and told scandalous
stories. Mrs. Butler sued, fixing the date of
the offence on Sunday. As the cause of ac
tion did not occur nn that day; but on Sat
urday, Melvina was discharged, whereupon
her husband took occasion to make a 6hort
speech, in which bo denumiuated his better
half as tho "most mischicvouscst and pester
cnest female that ever breathed a breath."
Squire Robinson's court was the scene of
Engineer Maratta is given as authority
for a story in tho St. Louis Republican
of Monday, to the effect that Aniandus
Jaeckel, of this city, left home, five or six
months ago, without notice to his family;
that Mrs. Jacckel extended inquiries and
finally learned that his dead body had been
found at Ikton Rouge, and that the wife,
unable to pay for bringing the remains
home, directed tho coroner to bury them in
Baton Rouge. Mrs. Jaeckel desires us to
say that this story is incorrect generally and
in detail. She knew when Mr.. Jaeckel
left, knew where he was going, and lias
been informed of his whereabouts ever
since. The Baton Rouge fiction Is without
even the shadow of a foundation.
-At the lawn sociable at Anna, tho
other evening, a couple of young men were
quite prankish. They obtained au umbrel
la cover or something of that nature, that
boro a strong resemblance to a snake, and
fastening strings thereto that enabled thom
to draw it to and fro, they soon hnd a por
tion of tho crowd in a state of great con
sternation, nt the appearance of a tremend
ous snake in such clo.se proximity to tho
party. A snake, making nocturnal tours
of tho lawn, was nn unuxtial proceeding for
a snake, and some of the party doubted tho
story. A brisk young lady who had soon
It, was not to ho put down In that way!
f ho'd show it to them, uniess It had been
scared off the grounds. The snrhrhtlv
young lady then darted hither and thither,
ana nnaiiy entangling lior feet in tho string
attached to tho snake, drew tho fearful rep
tile after her! The shrieks and commo
tion that followed, until tho true character
of the reptile monster was disclosed, admit
of no adequate description. Ten minutes
later there were not moro than three persons
in the crowd, who didn't know it was a
"sell'' Irom tho very beginning.
The residents of Elco and the country
'round about, recently enjoyed the novelty
of religious services in "God's templo"
the grand old forests of that locality. Hun
dreds of men, women und children were
there, many from points fifteen and twenty
miles distant. They came with baskets
well filled with baked chicken and black
berry pie; built their fires, mado hat coffee,
and there, in the shade of the forest inon
archs, fed the body bounteously, while par
sons Gifford, Baxter, Jamison and others
administered plenteously to their spiritual
needs. The affair was very pleasant, some
what novel, and is quite likely to ue follow
ed up by others of a like nature elsewhere.
Amanda Fletcher appeared belore
Squire Robinson and related a story of ill
usage that is the more exasperating because
tho law provides no remedy. Amanda had
fried and roasted over her kitchen stove fur
many days that Ed Crofton and other ne
groes might cat and grow fat tho inspira
tion to Amanda being the promise of abun
dant pay. Pay-day arrived; but no money
coming in sight, Amanda hoped to hasten
payment by asking for it. But alas the
day she did so! "Ed Crotton and the other
negroes" became mortally offended. If
they couldn't pay their debts without being
dunned, they'd never pay them at all; and
saying this they betook themselves from
Amanda's generous board and sheltering
domicile. They arc many points ahead of
Amanda now, the law is impotent, and, but
tor the hope of future vengeance, she would
feel crushed and discomfiited.
It is a fact that all humanitarians note
with pleasure, that our Cairo draymen and
teamsters are not, ns a rule, cruel to their
horses, mules and oxen. It is but rarely
indeed that, by locating his horse or mule,
the man becomes the brute. The dumb
animal that willingly devotes the labor of
its life to our service, working until it falls
exhausted in its yoke or traces, is certainly
entitled not only to the food it e3ts, but to
kind, humane treatment. And the General
Assembly of 1877, and that of '79 also we
believe, recognized these rights in our
domestic animals, aud enacted laws whereby
they might be vindicated. It is now a
finable offence to cruelly beat, to starve or
neglect our animals, nnd anybody who
may feel so inclined can enforce the inflic
tion of the penalty. The law is a most
humane one. Good men will never subject
themselves to its penalities. It will hit
only those at whom it is aimed, nnd who
would shield them?
The rclusual of the ten thousand ne
groes now in Memphis to go into camp,
that the authorities may have a chance to
stamp out the yellow fever, calls for more
than mere words of condemnation. Nearly
or quite one-half the new cases are develop
ed among the blacks, and as not one-fifth
of that class finds employment, the refusal
to go into camp where they will be com
paratively safe, and where they will be fed
nnd cared for at public expense,
is absolutely unaccountable. mat
a city with its many millions of
property, its flue homes and immense busi
ness structures, should be compelled to ex
ist in the shadow of a great desolation; that
thirty thousand of its best people, refugees
among strangers, should be kept from
their homes; that business should remain
paralyzed for weeks, perhaps for months,'
unnecessarily, all simply because a lot of
stubborn black men refuse to do that
which is manifestly for their own good, is
a matter that calls for acts of compulsion,
and not of words ot condemnation. Let the
authorities of Memphis assert themselves.
They arc dealing with a great scourge a
monster that has its fangs in the city's
throat. If the removal of the remaining
blacks and whites will enable them to
achieve a mastery, right thinking men
everywhere say force tho removal without
bloodshed if possible, with bloodshed if
nothing but that will prove effectual.
Tho men who have access to tho Fed
eral treasury vaults, tho men who bought
government bonds at a gold value of 40
cents on the .dollar, and were made inde
pendently rich by the Republican fiat that
their forty cents in gold should command n
return of 100 cents in gold these
men, and tho protected matiufactur
ing nabobs of New England hold the "dol
lar of our dads" in high disdain ns bulky
dross, and demand that the coinage of such
money cense. Their objection is that it is
too bulky; that their ordiuary transactions
require tho presence of a hand-cart, and n
stout man to push it. From the great mass
of the people, the men who work in our
shops, nnd till the soil; the men who build
and work our railroads, work our quarries
and mines and level our forests from these
men wo hear no complaints. The dollar of
other days is not bulky to them for it
represents to most of them, a hard
day's toil, and six of them,' that might be
carried in the vest pocket, represent tho
labor of a week, And to tlio most prosper,
ous of the tollers of tlio land, the dollar .is
neither bulky nor unwcildly; such people
require no wheelbarrows or strong nlL.u t0
carry the aggregated earnings even of a
whole year. They welcome the return ot
tho silver dollar, as money they can put by
for the needs of coming years coin that
defies the destructive touch of moisture,
mould, of heat or cold. It is especially tho
money of the poor man, who demands that
tho mills that produco it grind on. Tho
poor man, at least, has no fears that its
bulk will either disgust or inconvenience
At 8 o'clock last night six unwilling,

The Woman's Club and Library Associa
tion has recently come into the posession
by purchase and gift, of some very valuable
books. A full set of Swedenlwrg's works,
substantially bound, was lately received
from the American Swcdenborg ' printing
and publishing society, of New Y'ork. At
the sale of the library of the Rev. M. R
Iillon-Lee,a few weeks ago, a committee of
ladies purchased for the association several
volumes of the new Encyclopedia Brittan
ica, and the contract for the remainder of
the issue, to which two more volumes have
since been added ; and also a very old, rare
nnd valuable work, The history of the
Council of Trent, written by a scrvitc
Monk Paolo Larpi, in 1019, nnd translated
and published by Nicholas Brent in Lon
don, lCiO. The heavy, antique binding,
yellow paper and quaint lettering testify to
its venerable age, aud make it a valuable
relic, well worth careful examination. Be?
sides the above, the association has just re
ceived from Rome, as the generous gift of
Mrs. Anna E. Safford, four beautiful and
valuable books, Gargiulio Musee National
