have in years pat did an extensive ice
business in this city and since they are
also known to many of our citizens it may
not be without interest to some of them to
learn that the St. Louis ice houses of this
firm were on Sunday lat destroyed by fire,
which was mused by a lightning stroke.
Mr. William L. lluse, one of the members
of the firm, was interviewed by a reporter
of the St. Louis Republican, and from him
it was learned that the three houses had a
storage capacity of about 1 1,000 tons, and
were valued at $13,000; were damaged
about $12,'ih0 and insured for about $;ii.-
00! I. The firm had in the houses IO.imjO
tons of ice. valued at about $so,0oo, and
on which was probably $23,00 insurance.
The damage to the ice was supposed to be
nearly f iO.ono.
A few days ago while the little daugh

young rascals who met her. Mr. Haynes
swore out a warrant for the arrest of the
boys, whose names are respectively Stephen
Pinker and Alfred Young, and had tluun
brought before Squire Usbom m order that
they might receive their just punishment.
Young swore that he had not thrown the
pepper, but had purchased it for Parker be
cause requested to do so and had no knowl
edge ol Parker's intentions. Parker swore
that he had mistaken the girl for some
body else, but the Squire justly lined him

of the same sent him to jail for four
The Republican convention which
met in the court house on Saturday last, was
unmindful of the wishes of the Cairo Sun in
so far as it did not instruct its delegates to
the state convention for Ridgway. Repub
lican conventions were held, on Saturday, in
20 additional counties of the state -making
a total ol'77 counties out of 102 in the state,
and 'IU0 delegates out of the 002 delegates
composing the state convention. Of the 7S
chosen Saturday, whose attitude on the gub
cnfatoi ial question has been reported, 10 un
favorable to Culloin, ami of the whole num
ber so far chosen, 210 aru certain to vote for
him on the first ballot, with u probability
of still more. These will appear as remark
able figure when our readers remember
that in the effort to obtain them Governor
Cullom had to contend with the opposition
of the Cairo Sun. But it Is "even so," and
the figures are correct.

a pity that but few of our
people availed themselves of the op
portunity to see a beautiful and instructive
sight, as well as to gain information on a
subject all Christians must be interested in
tiie taking of the gospel to those, who
are appropriately called "Children of Si

Ohio, yesterday morning, where he attends
the Episcopal convention. His home is in
Cleveland, Ohio. He was educated at the

Ice water drinkers should rea l the fo! -lowing:
There t is no more doubt that
drinking ice wihcr arrests digestion than
there is that a refrigerator would arrest pei
spiratioii. It drives from the stomnrh its
natural heat, suspends the flow of gastric
juice and shocks and weakens the delicate
organs with which it comes in contact.
Habitual ice water drinkers are usually
very flabby about the region of the stom
ach. They complain that their f.iod lies
heavy on that patient organ; they taste
their dinner tor hours after it is Ixilted;
they cultivate the use of stimulants to aid
digestion; they roar at ikw bread, hot
cakes and fried meats, imagining these to
have been the cause of tiieir maladies. But
the ice water goes down all the same, au i
finally friends are called in to take a fare
well look at one whom a mysterious Provi
dence has called to u clime where, as far us
is known, ice-water is not Used. The num
ber of immortal beings who go hence, to
return no more, on account of an inju ii
cious use of ice water, can hardly be esti
mated. The Cairo Sun of last night says : "The
colored bull dozers are all "tore-up" about
the check they received on Saturday last,
and threaten to play "smash" with Thomas
and the whole Republican party. Let 'em
rip." It is not our intention to say much
about the fight between the colored and
white Republicans of this city for. in case
we did, we would be accused of selfishness
ind of trying to make votes for the Demo
cratic party, but may we not be permitted
to modestly ask why it is that a colore I
man must be dubbed a "bull-dozer" and
must be slandered and suubbed as soon as
he asks for those rights which simple
justice accord him? But so
it is. In the eyes of the Republican party
the colored men of Cairo have committed
m unpardonable offense in daring to
think for themselves as men of
intelligence will. And for doing this aud
asking for some of the spoils of the party
which since the war they have kept in
power,' they are called "impudent blather
skites;" they are told by the white Repub
lican leaders that their votes are not
wanted and then the matter is sealed by the
Republican organ of this city in the above
paragraph. We can but to say to this that if
the colored men of Cairo have not man
hood enough about them to resent this,
they are even greater fools than the white
Republicans are taking them for.
