The main objection most people have
to sending communications on postal cards
is that the writing is, of course, open to

soda in sixteen teaspuonfuls of water ia the
simplest fluid for the purpose. Cse n per

There is howling and gnuihiugol teeth

No audience was ever bettor pleased

The organ of the Eighth street supreme

Bogus gold and silver coins ure be
coming remarkably and alarmingly plenti
ful these days. Among the latest is an
imitation silver dollar, which will generally
deceive tho intoxicated and unobserving,
for whom it is intended. It is ol good ap
pearance when new, but very light and de
void of the true riug. Five, ten and twenty
dollar gold pieces arc also getting largely
in circulation. In finished appearance and
weight they are said to exactly resemble
the genuine, but can be distinguished upon,
a careful comparison by a slight difference
in color and lack of ringing propensities.
A meeting of the corporators, stock

The card of Dm. W, R. Smith & Son
appears in this morning's issue, to which we
call the attention of our readers. The sen
ior member of the firm is one of our oldest
and most respected nod competent physi
cians to whose reputation we could not add
one lota, and who enjoys a very extensive
practice. The junior member is also well
known to every citizen of Cairo. He was
born and raised in this community, stud
ied diligently in various medical institu
tions and graduated honorably. He is a
young man of much promise and some ex
perience who deserves the re.spoct and con
fidence which he enjoys.
In the county court, Judge Yocum
presiding, the case of Chas. Long, a black
man and Rosana Robinson, a white woman,
for living in adultery together, was dispos
ed of, both being sentenced to confinement
in the county jail for six'.y days. In the
case of Patier & Co., vs.
Betsy Harrington and I John Ilcaley,
judgement was rendered for
the prosecution, but an appeal was taken to
the ckeuit court. In the case of Hawking
T(Tsary Brown, brought before the court
on M appeal from Squire Comings, the
judgment was reversed in favor of de
fendant. The court has adjourned until
Tuesday, when objections to sidewalk as'
segments will be heard.
The high school scholars carriod out
anothor highly interesting progromme yes
terday nftcrnoon, their regular lime for in
dulging in a display ol their various
literary nnd clocutionnry talents. The at
tendance of parents of the pupils and other
of our prominent citizens was fair, nnd all
were, of couise, well pleased with what
they witnessed. At the appointed time
the exercises were begun with a piano
solo by Miss Rosa Ooldstine, nnd then the
programme was carried out in the order
following: Miss Evil bheppurd, with a
historical question, concerning Socrates:
Miss . Mamie Halliday, anoth

twelve scholars, six on cither aide, Lee

an essay entitled "Socrates" by Miss Maude
Rittenhouse, conclude! the programme.
All the exercises were ere Jitablo to all who
took part in them. The readings und com

proved that the scholars had eiven much
time and earnest study to their respective

Tim Lincoln Record says: "Spring

Th: Urrible small-pox is prevailing in
San Francisco to an alarming extent.
Many deaths have occurred, and the daily
mortality is constantly increasing. Some
of tho best hotels in tho city are sending
away their afflicted by the scora, and it is
teared by many of the most experienced
physicians that the disja.su will spread
much further before it can bo checked.
Strangely enough, the disease so tar, has
confined itself almost exclusively to the bet
ter class of people, very few cases having
occurred among the poorer and more neg
The other day we had occasion to visit
the county jail, and there, for the first time
since her incarceration, we met Mrs. Whit
camp, who our readers will rerucmbcr is
accused of murdering her husband. She.
was greatly pleased to receive a visit, and
after a word or two on different subjects,
enquired whether she was regarded as
guilty ot the crime by the people. Oiving
her no definite answer, she commenced
pleading herca.se with considerable energy
and eloquence enumerating a number of
reasons why she could not possibly bo
found guilty of the crime. Although a lit
moro pale than before she entered the jail,
shtf looked as well as ever, and was ap
parently enjoying the best of health. Her
sentence, notwithstanding that the msjority
ot our people belive her guilty ot the crime,
will probably be very light, and in it few
years she will again enjoy her. liberty.
Last night's attendance at the Reform
hall was very good in fact larger than it
has been during the past few meetings and
tho old interest prevailed from beginning
to end. A poem, entitled "Body and Soul,"
written by Mrs. Jacob Martin, was listen
ed to with the closest attention by the
audience and was well read by Mis Edith
Martin. Sir. Murphy,of Murphybboro.spoke
for about half an hour, telling princi
pally of the progress of the temperance
cause in bis town and the good
it waa accomplishing there. During the
business portion of the meeting, a commit
tee was appointed to solicit contributions
to the amount of five dollars for the tem
porary relief of the Soet family, who is still
in greot distress. The section of the con
stitution, whicli forbids the discussion of
sectarian or political questions, wus amend
ed as follows: "This article shall not bn
construed as prohibiting tho discussion of
measures looking to the suppression of in
temperance by law or otherwise." On tntf
turn the Young People's Temperance as
sociation was invited to occupy the hall
Friday after next.

and both went to the St. James hotel,
on the corner of Eight atreet
and Ohio levee, where it wai
learned that the woman was in her room.
They went to the door of her room and
rapped, and when uhe opened, her hus
band wai suddenly shoved into the room.
The officer waited outside awhile, but find
ing that all was quiet within departed.
Next raornioa Officer Schuckera
again visited the hotel to
see whether his &o price were required by
the unfortunate hubband, but found that
both had departed for their home it is sup
posed. Those of opt citizens who saw the
Circassiao(f) woman at the show on Eighth
street, will be sadly disappointed in the
change that has come over what they be
lieved to be a human curiosity.
Night before last a gontloman, who
shall be nameless, called at the police head
quarters and informed O fleers Schuckers
and Uogto, who weru found there, that a
young friend of his (who shall also be
nameless) intended to commit suicide dur
ing the night, and requested that the offi
cer! keep an eye on him.
They promised to do so, and being
told that tho would-be auicidc was last snen
walking down the levee, they immediately
went in search of him. After about a 1
quarter of an hour's search, they fonnd him
in a levoe saloon, a good deal under the in
fluence of liquor, and took him in charge.
He told the officers his intention ; said he
hail fully made up his mind to take his life
and nothing could prevent him accom
plishing the act. He had thought the mat-,
ter over for several days and had prepared
his aoul to meet his God by prayiog for
the lait two or three hours. Tho officerg
tried to reason with him, and finally per
suaded him to go home, promising that
they would not follow him. This be
agreed to, and started, but in
stead of going home, mado straight for
the railroad fctrip where a few minutes later
the officers found him on his knees, pray
ing with uplifted bands and a two ounce
bottle of laudnum by his side. Seeing that
if left alone in his crazed condition be
would probably accomplish his self destruc
tion tho officers pocketed the laudnum
and conveyed him to his home.
