Vennor tho gentleman whoso opin
ion concerning tho weather, The Bcm.k

heavy snow storms aflor November 20th.
However, ho did not relievo himself as to
whether tho suid floods of ilecry flakes
would take a drop soon sftcr the 20th or
later, but it is presumed this iliHcrepency
escaped his mind during a heavy rush of
job work, and bo forgot to make the cor
rcction in his next edition, henco tho popu

20th before the fall is precipitated, but
sooner or later it is bound to como. Great

Tho .team belonging to Mr. Dick
Ilurd, ran nway yesterday morning. They
started from the lower part of the city

Word was night before last sent to tho
police headquarters that a stranger Jhad
tallen from tho sidewalk on Eighth street,
back of the Vincent building, and had
been killed by tho fall. Chief lfobinson at

as he says, really dead drunk. Ho had
sustained no injuries.

were disposed of, with a fine ot two dollars

The many friends of Mr. John Koohler

asked for something to eat. After
their wants had been satisfied
they continued to linger about the premises

that his horse had been stolen. The sup

food stole the animal, since their where

Mr. Wm. H. Hotchkiss, a man of much
fexoerience in railroad work, has the con

siderably hindered its progress. He in

Yesterday, in speaking with one of our
old builders, we obtained a bit of informa
tion which may provo of benefit to those of
our citizens who have occasion to buil
feuces in the future. Mentioning tho well
known methods of preserving posts am'
wood which are partly imbeded in tho
earth, by charring and coating with tar,
we were informed that thoso methods only
were effective when both wcro applied
Should the poles be charred without tho
subsequent treatment with tar, the charcoal
formation on the surface would only net as
an absorber of the moisture, nnd, if any
thing, only hasten tho decay. By applying
coating of tar without previously char
2 " I
it m '
ring, the tar would only form a casing
about the wood, nor would it penetrate to
the depths which the absorbing properties
of the charcoal surface would insure. Wood
that is exposed to the action of water or let
into the ground should first be charred, and
then, before it has entirely cooled, be treated
with tar until the wood is thoroughly im
pregnated. The acetic acid and oils con
tained in tho tar are evaporated by the
heat, ond only the besin left behind, which
penetrates the pores ol the wood and forms
an air-tight and waterproof envelope. It
is important to impregnate the poles a lit
tle above the line of exposure, for here it is
that the action of decay ullects Jhe wood
first, and where the break always occurs
when removed from the earth or strained
We are no alarmist. We have a habit
of considering all subjects coolly, calmly
dispasionately before giving voice to our
opinions, but we must say that ins
Bclletis is sniffing danger in the future
to our community and country which may
result from the united action of a few fami-
ies. We refer to the Smith, Johnson,
lirown and Jones families who are
legion. Did it ever occur to any
one that these families have got con
trol not only of Cairo, but of this coun
try? If you take the Smiths, Jones,
Browns, Johnsons and perhaps one or two
other families out there is a big hole made,
aud when it comes to taking out these
several families aud all their relations it
will be found that there is not much of our
population left. Indeed it is probable that
there is not a voter in the United States
who knows his family connections, but
who is related to one or
more of these lamilics. In
Cairo we have Albert Smith, tailor; Albert
Smith, law student; Anthony Smith, labor
er; Bernard Smith, watchman; Smith Bros.,
(Jas R. and Egbert Smith); Captain Smith,
laborer; Chas. Smith, laborer; Cyrus Smith,
clerk; Douglas Smith, laborer; Edward
Smith, laborer; E. W. Smith, book-keeper;
Fred. S. Smith; George Smith, laborer; 0.
W. Smith, telegraph operator; Harrison
Smith, laborer; Henry Smith, laborer;
Hugh Smith, laborer; Isaac N. Smith;
amcs Smith, trader; James
Smith, laborer; Jas. II. Smith, clerk; John
Smith, laborer; John Smith, painter; John
.Smith, engineer; Joseph Smith, clerk;
Joseph Smith, laborer; Joseph Smith, la-
orer; Joseph Smith, barkeeper; Joshua P.
Smith, contractor; Martin Smith, clerk;
Matthew Smith, cook; Mingo Smith, la
borer; Philip Smith, carpenter; Reuben
Smith, whitewashes Samuel Smith, black
smith ; Thos. Smith, laborer; Wesley Smith,
laborer;' Dr. W. R. Smith, Sr.;
Dr. W. It. Smith, Jr., aud many
others too numerous to mention. Suppose
now that the Smith family, lead by old
John Smith, should do as men did in olden
times, gather together, himself, his wife
and his sons aud his daughters, his man
servants and his maid-servants, his daugh
ters' servants, &c, nnd move off to Mexico.
Suppose the Brown family were to do the
same and start for Canada, and supposo the
Jones family should all conclude to remove
to Cuba, and the Johnson family set out
for some other foreign country,
whero then would be Cairo's ten
thousand population? Or supposo tho
Smiths, nnd Browns, and Johnsons, nnd
Jones should conclude to soizo tho govern
ment, and nominate John Smith for presi
dent nnd James Brown for vice-president,
with the Johnsons and Jones promised
blaccs in tho cabinet, and they would nil
unito with all their relations, and bulldoze
all their employes, and subucribo liberally
to tho campaign fund, does any one sup
noso thev would not succeed? This matter
is ono of serious concern, especially since
our city election is approaching, and Tun
Bulletin takes it upon itself to sound tho
note of warning while yet it is time to
, avert tho danger.
