The request of the Kentucky legisla

deserving of notice. There are one thous

mere household expenses exceed 2',000 a
year. 1 lie idea ot restricting the entire
pay of the "President of the Great Repub

economical, but not hoggish.
The Ballard county grand jury, now in
session at Blandville, is said to be 'giind

warning to those whom it may concern,
that a purpose has been expressed to indict
all those Cairo men and boys who have
been in the habit of making the neighbor

the next few weeks, will be to answer no

The journeymen cabinet-makers of
Paducah are on a strike for higher wage.

that no advance will be given, aud that un

My Dear Mr. Editor:
"Beatrice" is right and so are you, w far
as you both go; but then I think you stop
far short of the end wheu you confine your
selves to the editors and M. D's of our city.
Your "professional" men included, I tlwnk,
all uieu who are not actually manual la'iar
ers. Why theu, do you and "Beatrice" in
clude but two classes, namely: editors an I
dot tors in your list of handsome incur We
are blessed, we Cairoites, with the highest
type of nature's handiwork in the way of
handsome men, and, if these splendid fel
lows paid but a little more attention U the
cure and style of their hair and beards an 1
bestowed a little more thought on the cut
of their coats and the "shine'' of their
booto we should fall behind no city in ti e
matter of handsome men both in and out
of the professions. Many a well developed,
tine looking fellow is lost to the artistic,
eye in a bag-of-a-co.it, or disfigured by a
shockingly bad hat; or made a very guy of
by an entire suit of badly-selected, vilely
fitting clothes. Do these men take a pride
in getting themselves up in this kin 1 of
style, or in it pure vanity ia
them? Do they really think that "beauty
unadorned," etc., applies to them; oris it
that they are afraid of being considered ef
feminate if tiiey show their good t i-'.e
in decorating their persons.' Whatever the
ca ise, there is, undoubtedly, among our
men folks, great room for improvement ia
the matter of dress. Almost every nun
considers it the absolute duty of hi wiv
or daughter or sister to l sik the best sue
can. in whatever apparel he may be able or
willing to provide for her; ami the duty is
one seldomly neglected by any woman with
an ounr of self-respect. "The result of
this is the not unusual spectacle on o;:r
streets of a couple presenting iu theiiiselvei
the two extrein-s of good and bad taste. A
woman of ordinary means selects the mate
rial for and fashions her own wardrobe; th
Iiwn of the sani'! family order thejr r!othM
of their tailor, aud py him fr wlu'ev-'r 1
taste he may jmssess. (and how littie if
po-evi s is sometimes easily discernabb1 by
one who looks at his victimsi thus disiiis
ing from his mind all care
or responsibility ol his person
al appearance. The result of such an eay
way of di-poiing of a responsibility i fre
quetnly mueli more satisfactory to t'ci
gentlemen, themselves than to their lady
friends wli. may have an interest in how
they look. I am not a stickler for tin"
clothes, but I do cherisli a weakness for
well-dressed men. Men whoe coats aud
hats and pants an I boots, etc., are suited
to them make them look like they were
dressed, not simply covered. No need t
wear broad-cloth to arrive at the deireJ
cud; the plainest material may be select'1 1
and fashioned so as to look well. This
matter of dress in matt is of eveu in rn
importance than in woman, for the reaso'j
that a man wears his one suit (often has '
but the one Miit) for weeks together,
and is, in a measure, indebted to it for
the good or bad impression he makes on
all ho comes iu contact with; while a
woman can and does vary her o.vn
suit (if she have but one)
by the addition of belts df
bright colors iu bows ot ribbons here
and there; or judiciously placed and inex
pensive ornaments, that add additions!
charms to her otherwise plain dress, arid
give it the appearance of a different suit,
entirely. Men cannot do this; their stylo
of dress, or rather the customs of the times,
will uot permit them to indulge in such
"vanities" eveu If they had the taste to be
benefitted by their exercise, which is not by
any means, u certainty.
And now, Mr. Editor, if you mean to al
low any one to "specify" I am going to ask
leave to mention all ot our handsome men.
ft looks like a "put up" thing, to me, to seo
only two classes of handsome men men
tioned, when there are, as wo all know, so
