wo learned that the cold weather

tho cause of the present scarcity and high
price of potatoes.
A dispatch from Bloomington to the
Chicago Times states that Hon. John II.
Obcrly has subscribed fivo thousand dollars

canned meats, jellies, dried fruits, oranges
and a great variety of other articles which
must be seen and tasted to be appreciated.
A full line of teas constantly kept on hand.
Orders by telephone will receive prompt at
tention. On the first page of Tu Bi i.m:tin
will be found the advertisement of Mr Phil
Saup the candy manufacturer, who in
forms our readers that he is specially pre
pared for the holidays andean furnish any
puantity of the purest candy in every varie
ty and at the lowest prices. His stock
consists of walking canes, candy baskets,
candy fish, dolls and numerous other con
trivances that would be ornamental any
where, and besides these he has a full line
of fancy fruits etc., such as oranges, figs
and dates, also a fine assortment of fire
works. Mr. Saup is the only manufacturing
confectioner in tho city and being able to
compete with any concern in the place
should have the patronage he so well de
serves. Tho present social season promises to
be an exceedingly animated one for, besides
balls, and parties there are half a dozen or
more marriage engagements to be con-
sumatcd this winter ami it is impossible to
guess how many hearts may be ensnared
by Hymen, or broken by Cupid, during the
:;ason. In the business point of view,
Cairo was never better able to accom
modate, to delight and to profit by her
visitors than now. Our hotels are in first-
ass coudition, our public buildings arc in
a very Indifferent condition, our railroad
connections increase year by year, our mer
chants in all lines have larger nnd finer
stocks of goods than ever before; and, in
short, Cairo and Cairo people arc able and
ready to welcome all tho people of Southern
llinois, of Missouri and Kentucky to tho
capital city of Egypt.
