that the affair will bo one that will prove
eminently enjoyable socially, and grutify
ingly successful financially.
Mr. Lew Catlett, who has so long und
so satisfactorily shaped the- interior man

The Grant boom has been greatly re
energized by that gentleman's recent al
leged perils at sea. His reception at Gal

the inspiration of shouts of welcome his
fervid soul "slopped over" iu the following
enthusing oral outburst: "I thank you. I
am glad to get back to my own country;
glad to be in Texas ugain. Texas is a great
country. It is not unknown to me. We

The Paducah variety troupe, composes

and so long as he maintains, as now, a
good show aud quiet and good order, he
will Oe very apt to maintain the field
against all would-be crushers who attempt
an unfriendly competition with him.
-The note for publication addressed to
us by "Mr. Brown," and delivered by the
hand of a little boy who was utterly ignor
ant of Mr. Brown's status in the commu
nity, is so ambiguous in its construction
that we are unable to determine whether
the party to whom it refers by name, would
feel flattered by its publication, or whether,
with cane iu hand- ami blood in his eye,
he'd hunt us up and give us a "sound whip
ping." Until "Mr. Brown" becomes more
explicit, therefore, we feel constrained to
keep his manuscript off our copy hook.
Mrs. George B. Poor, of Dongola,

who has been sick, nigh unto death, for
two weeks or more, is said to be much bet
ter, and in a fair way to recover. Her
mother has beeu constantly by her bedside
for a week or more. Dongola is pronounced
a healthy locality, and looks singularly free
from disease breeders; but the family of
Capt. Poor has been sorely afflicted with
sickness since he located there, losing dur
ing the time, a very bright and most inter
esting little daughter. His return to Cairo
would raise an effective barrier against
such afflictions, and we wonder much that
he delays the move so long.
A meeting of the city council will be
held in the council chamber this evening.
The avowed object of the meeting is to
takp action upon the bills for several ordi
nances reported und to be reported
by the ordinance committee, and to
transact such other general business
as may be considered of a pressing charac
ter. And in this connection may we not
suggest that the iildermen begin to "feel
about." somewhat, for an intelligent, thor
oughgoing and fearless man to till the po
sition of health olllcer; Other cities are
already prosecuting their sanitary work,
and if anything can be gained by further
delay on our part, we am given to an ol

capable of seeing it. Procastinatiou, in this
matter, is a danger to which our people
will not, without remonstrance, be nib

never, in all their lives, had a sharp verbal
exchange with their wives. One of these,
who is very sure that he never had any oc
casion to speak tartly to his better half, re
ceived a couple of callers, the other day,
and desiring the presence of the wife, who
was up stairs, called to her in this wise:
"Darling? My darling;" The reply, uu.li
ble all over the house, came quickly:
"Well, well! what are you up to now, you

tleman with a forced smile on his counte
nance "my wife says she will be down di
rectly." Tell it in Oath or Asealon, if you
ple:ye, that husbands ami wives never use
the cement of contention; but not in Cairo.
Sensible people will not believe you.
Mr. John Taber, of the firm of Taber
Brothers, will take his departure on the
Champion, for St. Louis, this morning, it
being his purpose to form a business con
nection In that city, with the widely know
and wealthy jewelry house of Beuqiuaii &
Co., 314 North Fifth street. Mr. Taber
removes the greater portion of his manu
facturing machinery, and expects to em
ploy in that department of the SI. Louis
house, not less than t'wenly operatives.
Mr. Simpson H. Taber (otherwise "Sim"
who is an tillable and popular gentleman)
will be left as tho solo manager of tho
Cairo business, which will not be crippled
in any way, sav iu the absence of tho
coiuplaeeut proprietor, with whom our
citizens will part with feelings of sincere
regret, and with whom Tub Bulletin now
takes a most friendly "good-bye."
A white cow, in tho upper part of the
city, Is a regular visitor ot all the family
groceries in that neighborhood, in search
of onions. She is a most voracious onion
eater, taking down tho bulbs or tops with
equal relish, and only limiting lier lunches
by the size of the pile iu view or by the
seventy ot tho thumps administered by tho
irate grocery men. A few days ago she
"got away" with over two gallons of onion
sets which the grocer had placed outside on
show, and as such goods sell for one dollar
a gallon, the grocer swore so lustily and
awkwardly over his loss that it was only at
the end ot u long mental tussel with our
outraged moral nature, that we concluded
not to prosecute him for his pain
r. . i i - ,
mi tacK oi aptness in tno use
ot profane language. Aud the milk of this

thropist and give it to his poor neighbors.
Hon. Geo. R. Weudling lectured on
"The Problem of the Ages," at Temper
ance hall, last uight. The reading room
was furnished with benches, chairs, etc,
for the occasion and was nearly filled with
our best citizens of both sexes. The lec
turer was introduced by Mr.
Geo. S. Fisher about 8:30 o'clock
and was received with applause.
We must content ourself with saying that
Mr. Wendliug's effort last night proves him
to be one of the finest orators in tho country.
His arguments were logical 'and conclusive,
his language of the finest, his eloquence
irresistable and his general style the most
captivating. For two hours be held the at
tention ot tliL- audience, drawing forth fre
quent applause and carrying with him
its feelings through every flight of his
marvelous eloquence. No ouo who heard
him can have gone away without being
strengthened in the belief of a future exist
ence. Capt. Jim Johnson is convalescing.
His inability to see the May Fisk blondes,
Monday night, so depressed and wore upon
him that, on Tuesday morning, the attend
ing physician was somewhat alarmed at
his condition. Leaving a "tonic-sedative,"
the doctor promised to call after diuner.
In the interim Capt. Bill Hambletou called
and gave such a glowing description of the
blondes that new color came into Cipt.
Jim's face, fresher blood Imuii led in his
veins, and had tli- Africau Aleck been
hand with his violin, we have no doubt
that that sick room would have at ouce
given out the sounds of a double tagdanee.
The doctor, returning after dinner, found
Capt. Jim in the most complacent of
moods, sitting in a rocking chair by the
open window. "Well, well," observed the
doctor, "I see you have but little ine for
me here. Just continue the same medi
icine." "But," interposed dpt. Jim,
"that would put iu-: out some." "How
tho devil." rejoined tho. doctor, "would it
put you out some?" "Why," returned the
Captain, "it would put me out some, be
cause I'd have to send for Capiin H.ni
bleton!" The "rich trial" before Squire Osborn.
the hearing of which was fixed for yeter
day morning, did not come off. The parties
thereto were a colored married woman of
30 or thereabouts, and a colored damsel of
about 18, both residents of Thirty-second
street. It is alleged that the married wo
man suspected her husband of infidelity to
his marriage vows, "as women do and
women will," and further suspected that
the damsel of 18 was, to the extent of ",10
per cunt." at least, responsible for hi mari
tal delinquency. Thus impressed, with
fury in her eye and a ramrod in her hand,
the wife fell upon the damsel, "woolod
her" vigorously, and wore out upon her
body at least two feet of the ramrod. As
already stated, the initial steps to a law
suit were taken, and because the complniu
ing witness did not appear to prosecute the
defendant, the shameful story goes out
that the husband appeared ou the seem.'
and bought the complainant oil'. Of course
we don't believe n word of this damaging
story, and we have no other object in the
world in making it public, than to avail
ourselves of the opportunity it affords lis to
say that we don't believe it.
Mr. Loncrgan, accompanied by his
btother, arrived in the city with the 're
mains of his sou Johnny, yesterday morn
ing. Johnny had been staying at the homo
of his uncle, near Red Bud, severul weeks.
On Friday morning last, when some dis
tance from his uncle's house, he was at
tacked with congestion of the bowels. Al
though on horseback at the time, the in
tensity of his kufl'.'iings were such that it
was with the utmost difficulty he reached
home; and the nearest physician
living four miles distant, two
or three hours elapsed before
medical attention could bo secured. But
little relief was obtained through the treat
ment bestowed upon tho pntioiit, although
the doctor passed the entire night by his
bedside, About tl o'clock Monday
morning, after much suffering, Johnny
died. As we have already stated, Mr.
Loncrgan, the father, repaired to Red Bud
by the first conveyance, and would have
returned to Cairo with the body,
on Tuesday, but for the circumstanco
that after a long and exhausting drive
to New Athens, he arrived only ten
minutes tou late for the train a mishap
that compelled a lay-over of twenty-four
hours. He reached here yesterday morn
ing, however, and at half-past 2 o'clock iu
tho afternoon the remains wcro conveyed to
Calvary cemetery, at Villa Ridge, where
they were interred in tho family burying
lot. A largo number of tho friends of the
family accompanied the body to Villa
Ridgo and witnessed the solemn rites of
sepulture. The earnest sympathy mani
fested was very general among our people,
and served, iu a measure at least, to soften
the poignancy of tlie sorrow into which the
family hud been so unexpectedly precip
itated. Johnny was about 18 years of age
at tho time of his death a youth of most
exemplary habits, and loved and respected
for his modest and unobtrusive bearing and
unexceptionable conduct, by all who knew
GOSSIPY LETTER FROM KLCo,
Editor Cairo IIhIIoIIii
Having often been asked the question,
why nothing was ever seen in the columns
ol The Bulletin from EIco, it has
caused us to stop and think what the reason
is, aud lnve come to the conclusion that
it is only for the want of a correspondent;
and while we know it to bo the best paper,
and our official county paper, andtis main
taining tho greatest circulation of any,
and in fact all the other papers put to
gether, und is read wiffi more de
light than any other paper, we have con
cluded to take it upon ourself to try to fill
the place of a cot respondent, and to write
up the items from our own little village.
We don't like the thought of being u
correspondent, but as things are transpiring
all the time, some of them, at leait, ought
to be known to the outside world.
The first thing we will begin with is the
festival held here on the evening of the 5th
inst.for the benefit of the M. E. Church.
It was a complete success and
cleared nearly f.'OO. The music
was furnished by Mrs. Dr. Gibb,
and other young ladies ami gentlemen from
Thebes. The music was sublime, and we
must say to our Thebes friends that with
out them the festival would not have been
so complete a success, and a cordial invita
tion of this whole community is extended
to them on all like occasions, as their pres
ence hereafter would be held as iudispen-
The Sunday school convention on the
Oth and 7th was a time of rejoicing, as tjio
Thebes delegation stayed over from the fes
tival.and in addition to them were our Cairo
friends. Mr. II. Leigliton. Mr. M.
Eaitcrday and wife, Mi-s Jenny
Wilson, Mr. S'rode and Mi. McKoe, who,
with Dr. J. A. M.Gibbsand wife and many
of the young people of Thelws, gave life
and tone to the whole affair, and notwith
standing it rained almost incessantly both
days, the house was crowded from first to
Mr. J. D. Whitaker has lought one-
thirl inteRvt iu the new flouring mill, and
is now an associate in the mill business
with the Miller Bros., and we now look for
ward to the early completion of the new
mil! which has been lying in a dormant state
fur eighteen mouths; but as cash is
now plenty aud th? boys have plenty of
that article, we are sure things will le-
made lively in a short time. T. B. Scar
lorough is now just about completing lm
new house o:i Maine and L ifayetie streets.
The prospect is good for quite a number
of new buildings to go up this spring and
summer in EIco.
Mr. L. Whitaker has sold all his lots ex
cept what he is improving for his own use,
and now talks of laying out a few morn
block, and give the people a chance to im
prove. But we mut not forget the EIco corres
pondent of the Argus-Journal, Mr. J.,
of the glowing accouut he gives of the
festival and his fears of not having uuotlier
soon, and also the slurs he would cast
on t!:c viewers of the new road. The fact
is the old road, as it now runs, can never
be made a good road, while the new one
an be made passable and the laltor not
be thrown away, while all that may be
lone on the old would be in vain. No
doubt "J" would make a good church
trusiee or road supervisor. More another
time. Yours. Truro.
