It should Le borne in mind by our
readers that Col. Dan Rice will lecture at the
Reform hall to-night, and that the lecture
will be a free one. We are told that Col. Dan
has not brokcu his temperance pledge, and
that he has resolved not to do so during the
balance ot his days. He has clone much
good for the cause in the Southern states,
where he has been during the past few
aud months being sincere in his professions,
he has gained the esteem of all the well-disposed
people of Dixie. After his lecture a
May queen will be voted for.
The city seems to be overrun with
thieves just now. A number of dwellings
have been broken into dining the last few-
nights aud more or less articles of value
carried otf. Judge Green's, Mr. Cobler's
and Scott Neil's residences were all visited.
At the last named place, eight dollars in

other articles were secured. The lioots and
peaches were found under the sidewalk on
Ninth street.-between the avenues yester

for safe keeping for the time being.

An unsophisticated negro yesterday
presented a note to John Clancy asking
him to present the bearer with a round
square, John not having the desired ar
ticle in his house sent him to Joe R mekcr
who -ent him to Pat Fitzgerald. lb- was
from there sent to Mike O'Donnel, on
Twentieth street, and that gentleman, we
believe, sent him to Dick Fitzgerald.
Where else he went we know not, but to

Probably never in the experience of
any Cairo tobacconist has there been such a

not so wonderlul, atte.r all, when
we remember that this favorite
cigar possesses nil the merits that is
claimed for it that its best recommenda

commend it is its cheapness. Only 5 cents.

At about 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon
a barn which is part of the property lately
purchased by Mr. Jas. Johnson, on the cor
ner ot Twenty-fourth street and Holbrook
avenue, was discovered to be on fire. The
alarm was hastily rung and the engines
were promptly on hand, but it being quite
a distance from the nearest engine house,
the structure was all ablaze and quite be
yond the control ot the firemen by the
time water was obtained. The residence
adjoining was, however, saved. It is be
lieved by those who pretend to be best in
formed that the fire was caused by several
boys in the barn playing with matches,
while it is asserted by some that the boys
had kindled a fire upon the tloor of the
barn and that it being communicated to
somejiay near by.without the boys' knowl
edge, caused the destruction.
The Pulaski Patriot.referring to Justus
Cunningham, our great criminal lawyer,
has the following to say: "J. R. Cunning
ham, who is positive he is one of the best
lawyers in Southern Illinois, has been cir
culatinj; around among his friends here
quite considerably of late. We wonder if
Justus is not figuring after the nomination
for congress on the Democratic ticket this
fall? He would be a bright and shining
light in congress." The above compliment
paid our great lawyer is well-deserved and
fittingly expressed. Ho would be a "shin
ing light" in any position to which the
sovereigns could assign him. For the
present, he has no congressional aspirations
as to the above paragraph intimates, but
will make the race for states attorney. He
is au eminent member of the bar; carries
with him uo small degree of legal lore and
is a profound logician. Of him we can
truly say, in the language of Butler:
"He is Inlojjir a ereat critic,
l'rofonndl.v t!;ilW in analytic:
He cua di'tinuich and diiil;
A Lai- 'twixt outh and soutbwee! ide:

The Sun, in a lengthy editorial, draws
the leaders of its party iu this county
over the coals for their numerous in
formalities and unparliamentary proceed
ings in selecting delegates to the state con
vention. It says: "The appointment of
delegates to the senatorial, representative
and congressional conventions ou last Sat
urday, was irregular, unparliamentary arid
contrary to the usages of political parties,
and as a consequence, not one of the men
appointed can obtain credentials worth a
snap." Col. Wood at the proper time
called the attention of the chairman of the
convention to the fact that the proceed
ings were not in accordance with
precedent, but his protestations were
drowned in the wild rantings of the crowd,
and the sectional discussions and maneuvers
that formed the chief teature of the pro
ceedings, carried them into oblivion. Every
thing is certainly very far from being alto
gether lovely in the Republican household
in this county, and the old saw can in this
case bu used on the party almost all over
the country: "whom the gods would de
stroy they first make ma 1" and "a house
divided against itself," etc.
Night before last, while "homeward
bound" from the office, we came upon a
crowd of loafers on a street corner, jiwt as
two ladies were passing them, and the re
marks that were passed upon the ladies while
they were yet in hearing were of the
grossest nature. Although the loafers re
ferred to were of the "genteel" breed their
actions were none the lessoflensivc for that.
The matter of insulting ladies has been
curried so far that now every decent woman
has a righteous horror of walking out after
sundown without being accompanied by a
gentleman. The long pleasant evenings
that should furnish them a respite from the
fatigue and worry of the day, lo go for an
hour's airing or shopping, instead of prov
ing a boon for which they are grateful, fill
them with ugly reflections when they con
sider that on such a trip they may have to
pass through a long line of loafers, from
old men to young boys, whose chief busi
ness, on a pleasant evening, is to stare im
pudently at them, or to make vile remarks
about them. To think that boys iu their
teens, mixed with grey haired men(:i to
criticise in filthy language, decent women
as they pass along the street, shows to what
a depth of infamy mankind may descend.
Now that, our police force will be increased
to seven men it would be well if at least
one of them would find time to cheek such
as the aforemen'ioned outrageous conduct.
Col. Dan Rice, who speaks at the Re

cerning him from the Memphis Ledger:
"Evening before last Col. Rite delivered
a lecture at Holly Springs, Miss., before a
very large and a brilliant assemblage of la
dies and gentlemen, at the Masonic hall, iu
that city, for the benefit of the confederate
memorial association. He was introduced
to the gathering by Col. F. A. Tvh-r. form
erly of this city, and Judge Watson, of
Hollvpnugs, and a most cordial reception
was accorded to the distinguished reformer.
The following is an eloquent extract, from
the opening portion of his speech :
"Flowers, heaven's choicest gift, are to
be distributed early in May over the graves
of the fallen heroes to keep iu sweet
memory the humblest soldier as well as the

port their discoveries. In order to show
the satisfaction which tin gravel streets of
Paducah are giving, we ipiote the follow
ing from the Paducah News: "Padiuah
has the prettiest and best streets on the
face of the globe, and so thoroughly satis
fied are her people of this that no set of
sharks and contractors couhl get a job of
making Nicolson pavements or any other
kind than those we have, if they would do
the work for nothing. The man who made
some of the first streets here is now engag
ed in making one of the same kind at
Memphis, and it is sure to prove the le-t
and probably only good street Memphis
has ever had. The material being u.-ed.
however, is being takeu from Metropolis.

of our children can not wear out."
We do not wish to speak flippantly oi
the old time Sunday-school book or the
innumerable ho-t of wicked boys who have
been ruthlessly consigned to a cold and
slimy demise m those books tor fishing or
swimming ou Sunday. Yet, we do take
the liberty ot pointing out to manufactur
ers of those crooked props of moral recti
tude a case which seems to knock their
theory into a cocked hat or something an
alogous. We feel called upon to do this
now. because numerous picnics will be giveu
this month by the religious aud temper
ance organizations of this city, and regard
it as our duty to say a word about the case
in our mind's eye. It is a case which
was recited on the llr-t page of
Tuk Bi'i.LETiN in the special dis
patches a few days ago. A little
boy, while attending a Sunday school pic
nic near MeK'mney, fell in a tank near the
grounds and was drowned. It was not
Sunday, it was not a secular picnic. Every
thing was as decorous and religious as
possible and yet a little boy was drowned
in a common railroad water tank, with a
number of people standing by. If the boy
could get to the tank some of the bigger
folks should certainly have been able to
save the boy's life thus illustrating a
practical salvation which would have been
most grateful. If boys can be drowned in
water tanks on week days while attending
Sunday school picnics it would seem to
be necessary to revise something; whether
the theory of the old time diseirlitianans.
or the locality of picnics, or the constric
tion of wafer Unks. Perhaps the happier'
idea would be for congress to appoint
committee of ue, consisting of "our meat
ber" John Robert Thomas, to fall into tlrtt
tank and investigate the consequences. In
that event while we might not be able t
predict the consequences to John Robert, it
is easy to see what would be the e Je.:'
upon the water it" would be immediate'
seized as an illicit stiil.
