A small patch of walk in front of Mr.
Charley Newlan's place ot business, on

Yesterday the president of the United
States was elected. Under the present sys
tem thc electors perform that business
not the people. They met at the capitals of
their respective states and cast their votes;

deposited at thc capital, a copy will be sent
to the president of the senate by mail, and
a messenger will be sent with another copy
to deliver it in person to the president of

How it occurred we know not, and beg
a thousand pardons for the omission. We re
fer to thc omission of the names of Messrs.
Robt. and Will Smyth from our yester
day's "Smith article." Without these
names the article was incomplete and '.he
humor indifferent, but we feel especially
grieved over tho omission since Mr. Will
Smyth feels considerably slighted thereby
and has withdrawn tho patronage of his
house from Tns Bulletin office on ac
count of it. This being so, need we say
that we feel like lying down and dying, as
did Lady Dedlock, at the gate of buried
The Woman's Club and Library As
sociation held their regular meeting yes
terday afternoon in the Library room. Mrs.
P. A. Taylor, tho president, being absent,
Mrs. Hudson filled tho chair. After tho
regular business of the association was
transacted, the literary exercises were
opened by an original paper from Mrs. H.
II. Candce, in which she gave a glowing
account of the Eighth Congress of Women
recently held in Boston. This sketch was
brimful of tho sayings and doings of tho
army of grand aud noblo women who met
in that session, and many interesting points
were touched upon which contained food
tor the mind, and work for every whole
souled woman. After tho paper was read,
one or two points were taken up and dis
cussed, ono Of which was "that it is tho
duty of every truo mother to visit our
schools and see that our children have
proper teaching, and interest themselves In
whatever tends to advance thc public
school system." Tho women of tho public
library have accomplished a noblo work in
Cairo, and wc trust they may bo encour
aged in every way possible by our citizcus.
