people Who gave the closest attention and
much merited applause to the performers,
all of whom did remarkably well. The
programme was a long one and every feat
ure of it uroused the deepest hteruit in the
audience, and called forth appropriate ex
pressions of feeling. Mr. Halter did lull
justice to him?elf, well sustaining the re
putation he has attained in this community
during his short stay here. Our home

to their already full wreath.
The worst looking puhh.-. building in
the city is our courthouse which, after
withstanding the effects of the weather and
constant use for years, has now become r.;i
actual disgrace to our city. I nt rnally it
is just passable and in'iy do if a few hun
dred dollars are spent in overhauling the
walls, etc.; but externally nothing short cf
a thorough r-paiiing from top to bottom
will suffice to make it at all a credit to
Cairo. It should be well and
handsomely painted; its chimneys,
roof, pillars, cornice, steps, walks, and
walls, should be repaired, its yard filled
up to a level with the sidewalk and its
fence should also have the attention of the
mechanic. We are aware that our county
commissioners are uot flush with county
funds just at the present and that they an
naturally timid about running the county
into debt, hut wo believe that, if by some
means or other, they contrived to trnnsfo; m
