Some doubt exists amoug city officials, as
to the propriety of the city's action in the
matter. It is claimed by some that it is the
business of the owners of property to keep
from becoming a nuisance and that
tne city could compel them to !o so.
But to this others of a contrary opinion.
answer: Hut it the lots are a nuisance
iceausc of their bad drainage, it is because
ae city enclosed them when it filled up the
treet-, and that therefore, the city, being
:sponsii)le for their condition, should rem
ly tiie evil. But to this we can reply that
thee lots were not a uuisauce until atter
tiie owners had built bouses upon them
and thus prevented tiie free cir-
ulation of the air over them. But
ie this as it may, it is certain
that, in doing this work the city, is estab
lishing a dangerous precedent, which may
haunt them in the future like a very disa
greeable apparition. If their uction in
this instance i right every owner of low
lots m ay transform them into a disease
breeding nuisance, by erecting a house or
an old shed over them and then the

B. W. ON SANITARY AFFAIRS.
The period of extreme and continued
heat being near at hand, a few words in
reference to the sanitary condition of our
city, aud the means that have so far been
adopted to render it us near perfect and in
vulnerable to disease as possible, are not
uncalled tor. It is a question in which
every citizen should, mid no doubt does,
feel u deep interest, and which lorecs itself
upou the attention of those in whose hands
the well being of Cairo rests. The steps so
far taken by the authorities to guard the
health of the city, are the appointment
of a health officer, and the
passage of an ordinance making
a radical change in the construction of the
privies throughout the city. The
first of these, is undoubtedly wise, and if
the niHti appointed to this very Important
position is energetic, of goo I judgment und
honest in thodisoharge of those duties, which
a proper regard for the people's interests
and Ids own, would dictate to him, and
unlHcching ia his zeal for the public good,
then we could rest assured that no local
causes would contribute to fhe spread
of any disease among us. But it

either by hope tor reward, or fear of pun

tion are removed, interest and activity
cease. Gut the health nt our city is too
grave a matter to be left in the hand, of
unreliable men, and the authorities arc iu
duty bound to watch our sanitary guar 1
iaus and keep constantly before their eyes
the unceitainty of the future, so that they
may not feel too sure ot their position.- and
,'radually allow their enthusiasm to die
away. I wish to throw out no insinua
tions against our health oilicers, past or
present, but I insist that they are human.
and need some kind of an inducement or
othe r incentive, to keep their interest ia the
public welfare up to the proper notch.
But if there is any ju-t cause tor com

it does not rest alone with the health o:!i-

unfortunate citizens. Such ordinances-, ik
EN'Euur ti may be productive of a little
good, but they are not dictated by a
wise and unprejudiced fore-thought.
They are like so much chaff upon our
statutes, which tends to weaken it. They
serve to disgrace the entire code in the eyes
of the people; they furnish a ground for
malicious persecutions ami an- u fortifica
tion behind w hich ambitious and over-ofii-
cious officers of tiie law take refuge. I
would not leave the impression that I pre
fer no ordinances to such as these, but
every person of average intelligence wii!
admit that the best interests of a t-. immu
nity are better guarde 1 by a strict oul'uce
meut of reasonable laws than bv the oeca-
ional enforcement of extreme measures. I
believe the ordinance concerning our privies
be an extreme, an unwise and an ex-
ens:ve measure. It ciilorccil, m-anv even-
roperty owner in the city must make n a
rial changes in the (-.instruction of their

Could not alfoid. It is one of those "1'-
litiuuces which hamper au ofilcer iu the
proper peitoriiiai.Ce ot his duties, and
which no sensible man would feci entirely
justified in enforcing. Hence, it is mop-
rative aud fails even to contribute to the
accomplishment of the purpose tor which
it was passed. Such ordinances concerning
the sanitary condition of the
city are not oihy prejudiced,
but, under existing circumstances, a posi
tive injury to us, and may be the cause of
the very state of affairs which they were in
tended to guard against. Economy ai'o
Would suggest another measure. If the
lemands of the aforesaid ordinance were
implied with, and every privy were sup
plied with tubs, etc., the city would of
course be obliged to employ several teams
und teamsters to attend to the removal of
the deposits. And this too, for months,
which would be quite a druiu
upon the citys treasury. It
this were tiie only, or even the best means
to protect the city against a possible epi-
emic I would be the hist to say a word
gainst it. But, in my humble opinion, it
is neither. There are various ways, it
seems to me, which would better serve the
end sought. I do not wish to dictate to
those in authority; but would, iu the meek-
st mood, and with the greatest respect for
the judgment of every alderman at present
in the chamber, beg leave to make a sug
gestion, Everybody that does not walk about our
sheets in a dream, knows that our city is
not iu the sanitary condition in which it
ought to be, even after the spasmodic effort
that has been made to render it bo. A
great deal of filth ,and numerous poison
breathing pits still remain, tho bad inllu
euce of which must be neutralized before we
can fft-1 entirely safe. The accumulation
of filth goes on continually in places where
the eye of the single scavenger of a citv of
twelve thousand inhabitants never f:,!U;
where, in fact, under the ordinances, it has
no business to fall. A single health nSiccr
cannot attend to the work of keeping tveiy
nook and cranny in a city like ours et.tirely
free from disease-breeding matter. He
must have assistants. And it seems to mo,
that since the police force rt the city will
be increased, some ot the duties of the
health oil'.eer might be laid upon thnir
shoulders. I believe that the best interes'i
of the city demand, that every premises
within the corporate limits.should'be visited,
at least once every week, and ofteuer during
the months of dune, July and August, by
mc city oficer, who shall be required to
examine every foot of ground and every out
house about the place. And if any offen

To restore nerve quietude, the circulation
must be fertilized through the medium of
improved digestion and assimilation. Ex
perience has long shown that Hostetter's

uervous symptoms will disappear.
