your households it U lookod forward to as
the happiest nnd merriest d.ly in tho whole

with delijfht and pleasure anticipating
that old Simla Clans will come and hrintf

expect something; and there is no parent bo

The Johnson County Journal, with
malice aforethought, gives publicity to the
following concerning a brother of the quill,
whose presence in this city wo chronicled
a few days ago : "The editor of the Vienna
Times was in Cairo "Wednesday, a truest at
tin" Planters House. At night ho repaired
to a room up stairs which had been assign
ed him, and on retiring he blew the gas out
instead of turning it off. Some time after
wards a porter was called up stairs, who
found the distinguished quill-driver almost
unconscious and his room full of gas. Had
it not been for the timely arrival of the
porter, he would now be where the wood

ter, hut he has lately married. He erred
very much in not taking his wife or a
guardian with him."
The old superstition that Friday was
aa unlucky day tor traveling, as well as
for everything else, set Bomo of tho
New York railroad conductors to watching
and taking notes, Tho result of their ob
servations show that of the passengers on
the New York division of the Pennsylvania
railroad, 15 per cent are carried on Friday,
while there is an average of 17 per cent,
carried on each of the other five week days.
In other words, there is a falling off on
Fridays of nearly one-eighth as compared
with the average of other days. The days
of heaviest travel are approximately Mon
day with 19 per cent, and Saturday with
13 per cent, there being many persons go
ing to and returning from business on those
days. The percentages shown on other
week days are: Oa Tuesday, 10.25;
Wednesday, 1D.73; Thursday, 10, and Fri
A decision which will have the effect
of reducing the postage expense of the legal
fraternity has been made by the pos'.al au
thorities at Washington. It has been a
common custom for lawyers and court offi
cials to send writs through the mails upon
which they prepaid regular letter postage.
By request of the clerk of court, a New
England postmaster recently submittod a
blauk writ, signed and sealed, by
the clerk, to the post-of-fico
department for classification.
The answer came that documents cither in
blank or "filled out in writing with matter
which is the appropriate filling thereof
might bo sent at the rates charged for
third-class matter. This will he interest
ing to tho legal brigade in Cairo and else
where, but it will not be appreciated by

The following statement of facts con
cerning tho Illinois Central railroad will
prove of interest to quite all of our readers :
The road was chartered February 17, 1831,
and since that time has been a source of
considerable revenue to tho state. Tho
road was put iu operation from Chicago to
Kensington, fourteen miles, iu 1852. The

The capital stock is 29,O00,O0O. The

During tho samo time 2,091,892 passengcra

THE CASTLK BY THE SKA.
Once, among rocky cliffs, whoso dark
grandeur bordered a mighty sea, there
stood a beautiful caulo, built of countless
millions of precious s'ton,.', that sparkled
with dazzling splendor.
The interior of this castle was of quaint
and beautiful architecture, and - divided
into numberless departments in which
dwelt people of ail nations, engaged in all
the different professions, trades and occu
pations known to the universe.
During each hour nay, each moment, of
tlio day and night thero passed through
this castle a long line of giants encased in
glittering armour. Ooe by one they cap
tured the inhabitants of the eastlo and
forced them to journey unto a distant realm,
over which their kiugthe most powerful
of all tho creatures on the earth held
dominion. .Many times tho starlight
quivered, and tho mnlight gilded tho
jeweled glory of this cvstlc many times
tho violets opened their dewy eyes, the
roses unfolded the Juuo fragrance of their
crimson hearts tho fulling leaves buriQd
tho fiowers and the falling snow the leaves ;
and still this mighty and mysterious army
with step of silenco and arm of strength,
continued to hush all music, laughter and
work, until this wonderful castle, oneo over
flowing with merriment and life, held but a
young fisherman, his wife and dark-haired
boy all that remained to break tho silence
of the day and the one light to biighten
the gloom of tho night.
This young fisherman had tho strength
of a Hercules, tho will of a God, and, try
as they might, tho united efforts of the
giants could not over-power him. But one
night, as he sat in the firelight mending his
fishing net, to his surprise' he
saw its size steadily increase
changing to netted gold as it did
so until tho fisherman, his wife and his
bright-eyed child were enveloped in i
tangled enchantment of gold, aud nil en
deavors to escape proved fruitless.
The exultant giants carried them away in
triumph. When they appeared before the
ruler of the distant kingdom, he command
cd that they, also all of the former inhabi
tants of the deserted palace, should wear
glittering armor like that of their con
qucrors; after having beca thus equipped,
they too joined tho army of this great king.
Growing taller and stronger with each step
they took, they marched over green-sloping
hills through the sweet perfume of valley
and field, and through the silent forest; at
last they saw the palace gleaming with
thousands of lights no longer silent, but
filled with laughter, music and life, as it
gazed upon tho beautiful, magnificent re
tlector, that trembled upou tho starlighted
waters of tho sea all unconscious of tho
near approach of the dark array of messcn
gers that waited at its portals.
And, even unto tho preseut time, the
castle continues to be depopulated, only to
have its echoes reawakened.
CAIRO PUBLIC LI BRAKY.

debts and to keep a balance in the treasury.
By careful adherence to this rule the Libra

About midnight, ju. t after tho acci

Nevada, the wife of Matthew Winnie
was found on her way to the works.
She said she had been awakened just

tho truth of what she w:ts only too well

ana her desolate home.
Tho following public bequests and
gifts by New Englanders havo been
made: James W. Hale, of Springfield,
Mass., ha.s left 982,4-13 for furnishing
stoves, flour, and fuel for the worthy

Episcopal church of Boston, and $500

Sydney W. Thaxter, of Portland, Me.,

general hospital, to provido a perpetual

A characteristic anecdote of Gari
baldi in related in a "Life" of that gen
eral. Ono evening in 1861 ho was met
by a Sardinian shoplierel who was la
menting tho loss of one of his lambs.
Garibaldi ut once proponed' to his staff
that the mountains should be explored
for tho little vagrant, but after an un
availing search the soldiers retired to
rest. Not so the General, however.
For tho next morning Garibaldi, who
was accustomed always to bo tho first
man awake in tho camp, was found by
his attendant in bed and fast asleep.
On being aroused he opened his eyes in
some alarm, and instantly Inquired
whether the rest of tho house wero
awake or not. Ho was relieved on
receiving an answer In tho negative,
and stretching his arm under tho coun
terpane of tho bed, ho brought to light
a tiny lamb, which ho handed to ui
friend, urging him to take it with all
speed and without being observed to
tho disconsolate shepheriL Tho friend
had just time to remark that by the side
of the bed was a saucer, in tho bottom
of which remained a few drops of
While a party of hunters was passing;
through Ulster mountains, a few mile
northwest from Neversink, N. Y., they
discovered a small and peculiarly con
structed hut. One of the hunters walked
un to a front entraneo and knocked.
There was no response, and he knocked
a second time. Still receiving no re
ply, ho raised the latch-string and
opened the door. A wreteheil sight
met their gaze. Lying in a filthy bed waa
tho body of a very aged woman. She
had evidently died from starvation ami
weakness. The hunter called his com
panions when a thorough examination
of tho hut was made. They found no
food of any kind, and tho appearance
of the corpse indicated that tlie woman
had been dead several days. Lying on
a chair near the dead woman's bed waa
found a small slip of paper containing,
these words: "My God! 1 am dying by
inches from hunger. My money will
be found." This was very poorly writ
ten with a lead pencil. 'I ho hunters
then started for the nearest settlement,
where they related what they discov
ered. Parties returned t the moun
tains and identified the body as that of
Mrs. Sarah Dcmpsey, 111 years old,
who for a long time had lived the lifo
of a hermit. Sho had been solitary in
