condition of tho earth will produce greut

district, from reliable sources, which is
very flattering and encouraging, indeed,
and which points to certain victory in No
vember. We have, for the best of reasons,
always entertained the belief that victory
would certainly crown the efforts of the
Democracy this year, but at no time were
we more certain ot this than now. The
news we have received from Pope, Massac
and Union counties during the past few
days convinces us that Hartzell will be
elected by a majority of not less than fif
Being short of news we will be ex
cused for mentioning the fact that day
before yesterday a woman at Paducah un
dertook to refrain from speaking for forty
days. A special dispatch to The Bulle
tin, received last night, runs as follows:
"She began at nine in the morning, and at
half past ten her pulse wa3 so teeble from
exhaustion that the physicians feared she
would die by noon. At eleven her heart
beat but twenty -six a minute, and her res
pirations were hardly noticeable. Her
friends here urged her to discontinue her
terrible task and told her some gossip
about a neighbor. On hearing it she im
mediately rushed from the house, and, go
ing across the street, met a lady friend and
talked to half-past six last night, and is
now fully restored."
The Greenback meeting in the court
house last night was far from being a fail
ure. Owing to the extreme heat tho at
tendance was not so great as it might have
been, but yet there was an audience of
about one hundred and fifty. As in yester
day's issue we said he would, Hon. Henry
Winter delivered the address, which is said
to have been an effort of considerable mer
it. Mr. Winter is a forcible speaker who
knows how to get at the bottom of any
subject, and presents his facta in plain lan
guage. His words were well received and
elicited appropriate applause. The meet
ing will be repeated down town at the
Tenth street stand this evening, when the
Greenback presidential elector of this dis
trict, Mr. Steele, will address tho audience.
The Democrats of Cairo should not
forget the free barbecue at Mound City to
day. People are expected to bo there from
every portion of the district and our people
who are within such easy reach of the
place, should be we'd represented. Ex
pensive and extensive preparations have
been made tor the reception of not less
than five thousand people; barbecued
meats of all kinds will be on hand in abud
auce, as will also plenty of fresh bread,
ice water and everything else for the inuer
and outer man. The supplies will be dis
pensed free of charge and with a liberal
hand and with them wholesome food for
thought will be furnished by our next
congressman, Hon. Wm. Hartzell, Hon. D.
T. Lincgar, Hon. M. C. Crawford and
others. It would speak well for the Cairo
Democracy if all our clubs, and Demo
crats not belonging tn them, would attend.

The manufacturers of campaign stories
have not yet exhausted their powers of in
vention. It now appears that while Gar
field was connected with the army he was
on one occasion taken ill, and secured a
room in tho house of a widow lady in a
southern town. Tho story is that when ho
recovered and left the house, ho not only
retuseil to pay the widow for the use of her
room and for attending to his wants, but
stole the bed clothes off the bed which he
had occupied. We would like to know
where that dovo was (which seems to havo
put in an appearance on every important oc
casion of Garfield's life) when he was com
mitting this horrible crime of thelt. No
doubt credulous persons will swallow this
story of tho theft of tho bedclothes with tho
saiuo readiness that they swallowed tho dovo
Ike Wilson, tho negro who has for sev
eral months been in tho employ of Mr. John
Koehler, on Eighth street, was yesterday
arrested for stealing cigars out of Mr.
Koehler' s saloon. Tho facts as we learned
them at Mr, K's place of business are as fol
lows: ' Ike was regarded as perfectly hou
est until some time ago, when Sir. French
Alley came to Mr. Koehler and informed
him that the negro had offered to sell
him several boxes of cigars.
Mr. Koehler's suspicions being aroused by
this, he counted the number of boxes of
cigars ho had in tho saloon and marked
them in order that, if Ike should steal any
of them, tho theft might easily be proven
on him. Having done this he purposely
left him alone in the saloon on Monday
morning, in order to give him a chance to
help himself to whatever he had a mind to
take and upon' returning found that two
boxes of cigars had disappeared. He was
now satisfied that Ike was a thief and
after learning that he had been selling
cigars to several parties in town, employed
Constable Hogan who yesterday arrested
him. He was brought up for a hearing,
but waived an examination and will now
pine in the county jail until the next ses
sion ot the circut court.
President Hayes is about to have a law
suit on his hands. It is known that he is a
very close man, and holds the almighty
dollar with the grip of death. Some time
ago Mrs. Hayes concluded that before she
left the White House she would like to
have a set of china, and after thinking
about the matter for a month or two and
figuring on the cost, the president consented
to gratify her. The set was purchased, and
then Mrs. Hayes was suddenly conscious of
another wish. She wanted something na
tional about the china, and decided to have
birds, fishes, etc., of the kind found in
America, painted on appropriate dishes.
Theodore Davis, one of the artists of Harper
Brothers, did the work, and when it was
done it gave entire satisfaction. The presi
dent thought that Davis would charge
nothing for his work that, in fact he
would find his recompense in the thought
that he had done something patriotic.
Davis' patriotism is of a dillerent kind,
however, and he came to the front promptly
with an astonishingly big bill. The presi
dent was amazed at the cost of the set of
china, with its fishes, birds, etc., anti he de
clined to settle with Davis. The artist,
however, intends to have his money, even
if he has to sue out an attachment against
Being very ambitious to fill this page
with reading matter of some kind and hav
ing no news wherewith to do so we feel at
liberty to indulge in a few remarks con
cerning Sunday recreations, in general,
without confining ourself to this city.
Nothing is more marked, perhaps, in there
ligious world than the change which has
taken place in the manner of observing the
Sabbath day. This change is, of course,
confined to those who profess the Protest
ant form of Christian religion. The Ro
man Catholic and Greek churches, to which
by far the largest portion of the Christian
world yield allegiance, have never insisted
upon a strict observance of the Sabbath.
They hive always permitted an
amount of freedom on that
day, which is utterly at variance with the
notions held by those who are recognized
as Protestants. The Puritans and Cove-
nanters. desirous of presenting as grea! a
contrast as possible, in their religious prac
tices as well as in their forms of worship,
to the rest ot the Christian world, made a
strict observance of the Sabbath one of the
distinctive features of their faith. So suc
cessful were they in their Sabbatarianism
that two centuries have produced but a
slight modification in the way in which
they insisted the Sabbath should be ob
served. These modifications have been
effected within the last fifteen or twenty
years. It is true that what are known as
the Blue Laws of New England have
not been enforced for many years, but it
has not been a year since attempts were
made to stop steamboats from running on
the Connecticut river on Sunday. In many
portions of the New England stutes, at the
present time, Sunday commences at sun
down on Saturday night and terminates at
the setting of the sun on Sunday night.
During that time neither children nor
grown people are permitted to indulge in
any sort of recreation or amusement, or to
read secular literature of any kind.
Work that is not absolutely necessary,
is prohibited, and a cold dinner, cooked
on the previous day, is alone allowed.
This strictness, however, is almost entirely
confined to tho rural districts, aud even
there Sabbatarianism is losing its hold. In
the town aud cities the Sunday habits of
the people are undergoing a gradual, but a
marked change. The parks and beer gar
dens are now fairly well patronized. The
woods aro full of gay pionicing parties, and
tho excursion boats running to favorite
resorts are . crowded. People are
beginning to exercise a greater freo
dom on the Sabbath and to re
gard it as a day of rest and recreation.
They are abandoning the notion that
they must attend church three times
during tho day and spend tho rest of tho
time at home reading religious books. Tho
same change is going on in England.
Within the last five years very great pro
gress has been made towards opening the
museums, art galleries, libraries and gar
dens on Sunday. This departure from the
established custom is greatly appreciated
by tho working classes, who have no other
opportunity to visit theso places. Tho rev
olution with regard to tho observance of the
Sabbath is only comme need. Tho proba
bilities aro that it will coutiriuo until in all
Protestant ae well as in all Catholic coun
tries, tho Sabbath will be regarded as a
day for recreation and legitimate pleasure
as well as a day for religious services.

The late census gives it something over

usual he was happy to meet us. Chap, was
postmaster here under Lincoln, but it
seems that he has led too honest a life, or
probably adversity has made liim a poor

house, built by the world renowned soap
boilers, Schultz & Co. It is the finest
amusement hall in the west, and stands as

The Garfield guards, paraded the streets
of the Eight ward, the other night, much
to the delight and pleasure of the Demo
crats. It reminded the writer of the Green
back parade at Cairo, aud it will compare
equally. The parade composed, all told,
but five voters, with quite a number of
boys bringiag up the rear, with an occa
sional shout for the De Golyer hero. Dr.
Evans, formerly of Cairo, was one of the
force. The Eighth is the largest Demo
cratic ward in the city.
It seems as if the Democrats here have
greater hopes of carrying this state than
Indiana and they present a very logical
argument to supj-ort it. They claim that
Garfield is weak just where the Republi
cans are strongest in the Western Reserve.
This w as especially observable in 1976. In
that year Hayes received only 29,992 votes,
while Garfield polled only 20,012, a differ
ence of 9,90 votes against the latter.
Hayes plurality in the state over Tilden
was 7,516. Thus it is seen that if the party
had not bein even so much stronger than
Garfield in the Reserve the Republicans
would have lost the state by the difference
in the vote ot the district alone. Hancock
is gaining strength here every day from
Republican deserters, and the young men
here as everywhere else are almost solid for
the gullaut soldier. The opinion is strong
here that Wm. Lang, the Democratic noim
nee for secretary of state, w ill be elected
in October, and if he is you will here from
