THE GOULD SYSTEM.
A dispatch from St. Louis to the Chicago
Tribune states that the suggestion of a
working arrangement between the
Mobile aud Ohio and the Gould system of
railroads, recently foreshadowed is begin
ning to assume solid shape. It will, how
ever; prove more permanent than a mere
working traffic it will result in consolida
tion. The details only have to be arrang
ed, and as part of the plan Superinten
dent Miller, of the Cairo and Vincennes, is
now in .New York representing that com
pany. It is the intention of the Gould syndi
cate to absorb, consolidate and combine, as
the lawyers say, all tho loose lines in Il
linois lying south of the Wabash main lino.
These lines are: The Cairo and Vincen
nes, tho Danville and Southwestern, the
Peoria, Decatur and Evaasville, the Cairo
and St. Louis narrow-gauge. To this con
solidation will be added the Chicago and
'adncah extension from Ellington to Cnrnii.
Solon Humphreys, president of tho
Wabash, is ono of the principal stockhold
ers in tho Cairo and Viuccnnca. Charles
Rigley, president of the Duuvillu mid
Southwestern, and one of its principal
bondholders, is n director iti the Wabash.
And, as for the I'., 1). and K. mid ('. and St.
L., their stock is so placed ami their cm
barriissments so many that their directory
will look with pleasure upon any overture
tho Gould syndicate limy make.
Rut the principal feature of tho consolida
tion lies in the value of Uih connection to
to be made with the Mobile and Ohio.
The Wabash already owns the Chicago and
I'aducah, '2V miles from Chicago to Effing
ham. It now proposes to build an air line
from Ellhigham to Carmi, seventy-five
miles, at which point it connects with the
Cairo and Viucennes 101 miles to Cairo,
making the total distance between Cairo
and Chicago as follows;
. . ,:r.o
Via Illinois Central.
Via Wabash extension
Via Chicago & Eastern Illinois.
For tho Cairo Iiul'.ei in.
We who love the Sa?lour,
Would tttuer blosnoma sweet.
And twine a birthday garland.
To cast down at II is feet.
But ah! our bands aro human.
And Heaven Is far away.
We bring no earth grown lilies,
To jrruco Ills nutal day.
Wc turn with reverent meekness,
And ask what shall we briuz '
With all ur human weakness,
A birth gift for our king,
Dear Lord, our hands are empty.
While we thy birthday greet;
No glowinp eastern garlands
No lilies fair aud sweet
Hut grateful tears wo bring thee.
Our frank Incense and gold
For all thy loving klndncsn,
Thy tenderness untold.
Tor 'tis thv bauds that leads us,
When drear, and dark the way;
Accept our mute thanksgiving.
On this thy natal day.
For The Cairo Bulletin:
A MERRY, MERRY CHRISTMAS.
Oh merry, merry Christmas.
Earth-Joy, born of divine!
I've just been readiug the story
Of a cottage In tho pine
How the little children Numbered
On a yellow wheat-straw sheaf
For beds must be straw on Chris'.m:is,
According to the Swedish belief.
The flicliuht kissed their laces
And turned the straw to gold
While the Christmas-tree was waiting.
The candle-light to bold.
The boy had jetty ringlet
That the wild wind loved to tos,
The girl had silkeu tresses
Like a vail of goldeu tins.
When Hie moonlight's faintest silver
Lit the while face ot" the earth.
And the bells for Christmas matins
King out their welcome mirth,
Tile children's laughter blended
Willi chime of aleigh-Mls sueel -
As the wi'd dark Heeds went flyi: -t
O'er the t now with willing fiet
While the merry exclamation
Were made with quaint delight
As they saw the steeple glist'nmg
And the church nblaze with light
Oh tender ricred Christmas,
Earth-joy born of divine.
And a merry, merry Christmas.

Something for the New Year.
The world renowned success of Hostet
cr's Hitters, and their continued popularity
for a quarter of a century as a stomachic, is
scarcely more wonderful than the welcome
that greets the annual appearance of IIos
tetter's Almanac. This valuable medical
treatise is published by Hostettcr k Smith,
Pittsburg, Pa., under their own immediate
supervision, employing t?0 hands in that
department. Ten cylinder printing presses,
S folding machines, 5 job presses, &c.,
are running about eleven months in the
year on this work, and the issue of same
for 1881 will not bo less than eleven
millions, printed in the English, German,
French, Welsh, Norwegian, Swedish, Hol
land, Rohemian and Spanish langungcs.
Refer to a copy of it for valuable and inter
esting reading concerning health, and nu
merous testimonials as to the efficacy of
Hostetter's Hitters, amusement, varied in
formation, astronomical calculations and
chronological items, etc., which can be de
pended on for correctness. The Almanac
for 1881 can be obtained freo of cost, from
druggists and general dealers in all parts of
A Larue proportion of children who die
early are those whose brain development is
unusually large in comparison with the
body. Why is this? Simply because tho
functions of the body are too frail to sup
ply the waste going on in this brain conse

Compound Syrup of Hypophosphites is so
prepared that it imparts the vital principle
directly to the brain, whilo it assists m de
veloping a vigorous and robust body.

The Texas bond case of R. T. Merrick
and T. J. Durant against D. C. Giddings,
agent of the state ot Texas, and cx-Gov.
Coke of that state, was concluded in tho
circuit court to-day. Tho suit, which was
brought by Merrick and Durant, was for
