"Judge F. Bross, of Cairo, was in town
on Monday, looking well. His firm sup
plies druggists, and others, with pure
liquors. He is is an honest man, and
would not be guilty of selling the "cheap"
poison, called whisky, with which unscru
lous firms supply the doggeries of tho
country. The judge is an old lricnd of
ours. Selling whisky is not his "fort," as
Artcraas Ward would say, and we would
advise him to change his avocation. If
he could, however, induce the public to uso
none but pure liquors, ho would bo doing
them a great benefit. As long as liquors
are made they will be used. If they can
be made in this country without adultera
tion, the same as in Germany and France,
where there is comparatively no drunken
ness, it would be of great benefit to the
John fun County Journal.
In a few years Cairo will be the market
br southern Illinois. The Eads project
has been a success. The largest ships of the
ocean can enter the port at New Orleans.
The products that are bought here for the
foreign markets, can be shipped now by
the way of New Orleans instead of by the
way of New York and Baltimore, as hereto
fore, which will be a great saving to the ship
per and enable him to pay more for tho
articles to be shipped. Should, congress
give tho necessary aid to improve the Mis
sissippi river so that navigation would be
good the year round, and open up the chan
nel so that large vessels could come to
Cairo, the people would ship from here to
Europe about as cheap as they can ship to
New York and Baltimore. If congress will
do its duty in this direction it will be the
making of this section of tho country.

THE UOLIDAY TRADE.
Two weeks from yesterday Christmas
the gayest and most joyous of all tho holi
dayn will be here. The trade promises to
be larger than usual. Already tho stores
are thronged with eager purchasers. For
tho next two wcek3 the advertising columns
of Tuk Bulletin should be accepted as a
general directory by those who wish to
purchase holiday goods. Our merchants
look forward to a rich harvest, and there is
every indication that their anticipations
will be fully realized, for every clear day
the principal business thorough-fares and
houses present a most animated scene, be
ing crowded with brightly-dressed ladies
and children in eager quest of holiday
gitts. During the next two weeks the
country will pour iuto Cairo a constant
stream of thoso who make this their trading
point. All the stores are beginning to dis
play their holiday attractions ami to
advertise the novelties of the season, and it
may be added that it is very apt to be the
newest and freshest advertisements of tho
season that catch the cyo of the customers.
From the finer qualities of dress goods to
the charming eccentricities of bric-a-brac;
from jewelry and silver and plated sets to
artistically decorated service of china and
porcelain; from fine editions ot books for
grown persons and picture books for the
younger generation to the daintiest Christ
mas cards and tho innumerable devices , in
toys; from some or others of these presents
may be selected to suit all tastes, whether
tokens of affections or remembrance, or in
friendly recognition of services rendered,
or of sympathy with tho deseiving.
Above all other holidays, Christmas is the
season for liberal givings, for exchanging
courtesies, for opun-handed hospitality, and
for acts of benevolence and charity. It is
tho harvest of the holiday trade, prepared
for weeks and sometimes months before
hand, and looked foiward to with more or
less solicitude by many trades pooplo, in
the hope that tho sales of the joyous season
will bo largo and leavo a lair balanco of
profit to round up tho business of the year.
The indications aro that if tho weather
proves propitious theso hopes will not bo dis
appointed, and that tho close, economics
which marked tho purchoso of present) at
Christmas during tho past four years, now
that business has revived and tho pros
pects of tho futuro are bright, will
bo succeeded by a more generous expendi
ture. With good times come good spirits,
and with good spirits open purses to uu ex
tent compatible, let us trust, with that pro
vidence which should govern every head of
a household in dispensing gifts within his
own family and outsido ot it. With good
weather customers will bo continually
dropping in from this time from the coun
try tho merchants of the interior towns
and villages to replenish their stocks of
Christmas goods), and farmers and farmers'
ives, and citizens of outlying communities,
to whom Cairo Is accessible by rail or car-
iagc or water conveyance, to visit the retail
stores, and by personal inspection ascertain
ihat will bo most suitable to buy within
the meau3 they have set apart for holiday
purposes. To such as theso tho advertising
columns of the newspapers, which are
always studied closely in the country, serve
the useful purpose ot a guide, and enable
them, by the suggfSms they offiT, to
make tho beat use of the limited time they
have at their disposal.

MOSES JL'STUS AS KKLATED TO A I1LLI.E
TIM IlEIMItTEH YESTERDAY.
We yesterday called upon Anderson
Glenn, tho murderer of Moc Justus, with
a view of obtaining his side of the story
concerning the killing, in which the public
is more or less interested. We found him
lying on his cot in the cell and upon ac
quainting him with the object of our visit,
ho lazily arose therefrom and seated himself
on a stool, which stood near tho ceil door,
and appeared ready for a talk. He is a
tall mulatto, of medium build, small lea
tures, and generally expressionless face, and
has about him that devil may-care manner,
which is characteristic of all steamboat

told him that the money I had was mine,
and that I was under no obligations to him
and would not give bun the money. He
then kicked me off the sidewalk,
and after scuffling with him he tore away
trom me and ran into one of tho eating
houses near tho corner, where he obtained a
butcher knife with which he was coming
towards me, when I drew my knife to de
fend myself. When I drew my knife he
was standing in front ot the house and see

him around and stabbed him in tho back

A "SUPERB" LETTER
FROM CACHE, BY MRS. 0. GREKN, WHICH IS
KILL Off OOSSIP AND NHW8.
How long it Is since my last letter to you I
lam sure I do not know why wo, your
correspondents, stopped writing; but wa
did, and now all at once Trim, truo and
trusty, pops up his head and breaks the
silence with a nice budget of news and an
effectionate inquiry full of tenderneas for
Mrs. D. Green. Think of it; he at least
has not forgotten mot Nice old Trim 1 I
feel certain I'd know him if I Bhould see
him come jogging through the lane to-morrow.
And now, may I follow his example and
ask concerning Mrs. Snobs, for whom I en
tertain an almost sisterly feeling? I
imagine I seo her shako her cap frill and
energetically lay down a half-finished sock
to replace the shining ncodlcs with a care
fully trimmed quill, and hastily jot down
bits of news precious to herself and inter
esting to others. I almost wonder if, after
all, our poor littlo letters aro as pleasing to
their readers as to tholr writers. How wo
will decldo tho query, I do not know;
though of ono thing wc may be sure, thoy
are perfectly harmloss, if nothing olso.
I suspect (hat is moro than can bo said
of somo writings ai, for instance, thoso of
Spenier, Huxley & Co., somo of which aro
better lot alouo than spread , broadcast
throughout the country and put into tho,

to wade into tho sea of high sounding words
without knowing how to get out again, at
least not without being flecked and stained

I need n boy of that description very
much, and if they could furnish me with

though if the formal basis had not been of
sufficient strength to get the psychological

say in the very face of that statement that

by another season. It may be that I am
talking ahead of time, but I mean I should
do so and so in case tho English creators
should succeed. If tho heat force of tho
sun be so slight in Great Britain as it has
been in this region for the past few weeks,
would suggest that tho gentlemen set tho
dough the protoplasm, I mean on a box
or stool near a base-burner.
Winter came on us so long ago many
of us were unprepared for it. Corn gather
ing and wood chopping have been delayed
to the present time. The first is very un
pleasant work with frosty little imps nip
ping toes, fingers, and ears the while.
The snow which lasted lor two weeks and
over here, where there aro not hundreds of
vehicles to cut into and deface tho pure
whiteness, forced gamo from forest haunta
in quest of food. Four deers were shot
within sight of this littlo town. I presume
they wcro shipped to Cairo.
Another item, of a very different nature,
and I am done. Within a week there
were two robberies of considerable extent.
One of tho stores was relieved of valuable
goods, and quite a sum or money. Soon
after one of tho farmers near by had some
thing less than a hundred dollars taken
from his pocket, while he poacefullf
dreamed of tho fine cow he Intended to
purchase tho following day.
I mention tho robberies to show that we
aro not so far from civilization as mipht be
supposed, though that was the first step
of the kind we have taken toward pro
gress. Mrs. D. Green.
