murderer of a muchly honored and peaca
ble man, upon the ground of lunacy, creates
much newspaper comment wherever it

imbecility. Tom's brother, Sinclare, was

The London Court Journal seems to
huvo a crazy love for tho n'amo Victoria
and to be, in a way, enamored of all per

teeming with silly squibs about "Vic", the
queen, they are also open to tho defense of
"Vic", tho Wooilhull who is now in the
Island, and who never fails to flood this
country with marked copies of the Journal,
containing ouo of her "defenses." Wre
acknowledge the receipt of a copy, and in
perusing its columns wo were not surprised
to find the usual defense of tho ono and a
sort of diary of the daily life of the other,
from the latter of which the the following
extracts will, perhaps, not bo without
interest: "Osborne, Saturday : Tho Queen
drove out yesterday, attended by Lady
Waterpark and the Dowager Marchioness,
of Ely. Sunday: The Queen wulkod out
yesterday afternoon, with the Duko and
Duches of Connought, and Princess
Beatrice. Monday: The Queen, Prin
cess Beatrice and Duchess of Connought,
walked out this morning. Tuesday: Tho
Queen drove out yesterday
afternoon with Princess Lnuiso
and tho Duko of Connought. Her
Majesty drove and walked with Princess
Louisa th'iB morning. Wednesday: The
Queen and Princess drove out yesterday

An exchange, way down in Alabama,
speaks well of what citizens should do in
order to build up tho town, and what it
says will apply here, as well as everywhere
else. Although Cairo has taken immense
forward strides within the last few years,
its goal is yet in tho distant future, and its
citizens ure not above taking advice us to
the manner in which its progress can be
assisted, henco wo reproduco tho following:
"Tho way to build up a town is to encour
agn all men to como and settle among us,
particularly those who arc active and worthy,
whether they have capital or not. Their
labor alono is worth money. Thoso who
hare capital, will buy lots and build
on them, or re.nodel the old buildings,
or tear them down and build now.
Go to work and stimulate every legitimate
enterprise, by giving it all the encourago-
went you can, or by uniting your industry
as capital, or both of them in the cause.
Cutivate a public spirit, help your neigh
bor. If he is in danger of breaking down,
prop him up in some way, either by kind
words, good counsel, or a lilt from your
pocket hook. It may be your turn, some
day to need help. Encourage your local
authorities in making improvements for the
good of the town. Pull together, not one this
way and tho other that, as is the case some
times 'United wo stand, divided we full'
should be rcinembcrod by every ono who
has an interest- in the prosperity of tho
town in which he lives standing aloof
from-all public enterprises, for fear some
ono else will get a few cents or dollars
more than you will, will act against you
every time, for iu all communities it is im
possible that any shall prosper without its
being of some benefit to his neighbors
tho building of a nice dwelling stimulates
prido of surroundings in the rest real
estate "goes up" or increases in valuo in
tho neighborhood all aro in a degreo
benefitted, so with everything else. We can
not if wo would live independent of each
other, the wise Master Builder never intend
ed that it should be so, ond ony course, to
the contrary, will tend to drag down and
to destroy what little prosperity that our
city may have.
Thecitizeusol Paducah and other cities
have called upon the mayors and other city
officers of their respective cities, who have
served them during the last two years, to
consent to a ro election and in nearly all
cases, so far as they have come under our ob
servation, the officers have kindly accepted
the invitations. Would it bo asking too
much of our citizens, to suggest that they
follow the example of our neighbors?
Our officers, one and all, have undoubtedly
striven to serve the people, to the best of
their knowledge and ability. They have
been untiring in their efforts to per
form their duties as it was
given them to understand them,
and, if they have given complete satisfac
tion to all, they have been more than human,
and if they have not given complete satis
faction to all, they have proven themselves
to be huuiau, just like all of us are, and
occupy about the same position that every
other pulbic servant, all over the world,
does and has always done, and will always
do, to the end ot the world. We are not
now advocating tLe claims of anybody.
Wc mean simply to awaken the people
from their apparent lethargy by calling to
their mind that a city election is approach
ing, and that some of their time and
thought would not be lost if it were de
voted, even at this early day, to a
consideration of that fact. All around
us the people are manifesting their prefer
ences by giving an expression to their
thoughts and, in fact, actively engaged in
making preparations for tho day of elec
tion. While we have plenty of time, be
tween now and the third Tuesday in April,
to make our selections from among the
many good men that might be induced to
serve the people in the different capacities,
yet there could be no harm in a little agita
tion now; for the sooner an interest in the
coming event is aroused, and the men who
would be willing to receivo the suffrages of
the people stand forth, the more calmly and
fairly can the voters deliberate upon the
fitness of those who present themselves,
and choose between them. It is our pur
pose in this article, to set the voters of
Cairo to thinking; to get them to recall to
their minds, the events of tho past two
years, so far as they concerned tho city
government and, giving full weight to all
the circumstances surrounding them, to
judge them separately and collect
ively, by the standard of right; and it,
alter such consideration, tbey como to the
conclusion that all was as near in accord
ance with their standard as could bo ex
pected, well and good, they will know
what to do; if not, well and good, too, they
will then also know what to do. What
kind of men wo want to till
our city offices every ono knows; for there
is probably no intelligent voter in the city
who has not an ideal of some kind in his
mind; and that ideal, if it be the outgrowth
of a pure, honest,nature the result ol a lair
and full consideration of everything ap
pertaining to it, will undoubtedly
bo such as the emergency seems to de
mand, and would meet the hearty approval
of the general public. We will not, there
fore, at tho present time, enter into a
lengthy discourso as to the essential quali
fications of a model public officer, but sub
mit the mutter to those, whoso bounden duty
it. is to say who shall and who
shall not hold office, ond what shall and
what shall not be the conditions upon which
he may hold it. .
One of tho most activo members in the
Illinois general assembly, is Hon. D. T.
Linegar, of this city, who seems to figure
prominently, in the house, in tho com
mittee rooms, and in the caucuses. Be
sides taking a part in the dobate, arising
upon bills introduced by other members, he
also watches the progress of measures in
troduced by himself. At the meeting of
the house on day before yesterday he, in a
speech of some length, strongly urged tho
adoption of a bill against tho sale of fire
arms to minors, introduced ' by
Mr. Morrie, and on tho
saiuo day, niado a two , hours1
argument in favor of his own bill before
the House Revenue committee, which had it
under consideration. This rcvenuo bill of
Mr. Lincgar's is attracting much attention,
and is being discussed both pro and con by
some of the principal journals of the itato
and their correspondents. Tho following
is a communication, which appeared in the
last issue of the Chicago Tribune: "Mr.
Linegar, a Bourbon member of the Illinois
house of representatives, has introduced an
unconstitutional bill looking toward chang
ing the present mode of raising revenue for
this state by taxing, at the rate ot from 2 to
4 per cent., tho gross receipts of railroads,
telegraph, express, insurance ami other
companies. Without dwelling upon the
unconstitutional phaso of this palpably
'special legislation,1 I wish to bring up a
strong point against it, in that It is directly
antagonistic to tho interests of thousandB
of tho state's most prudential citizens. The
provisions of tho bill really reduces the
amount of tax the railroads would have to
pay; whilo tho taxes of thoso who patronize
express or telegraph companies, or who in
sure their buildings, ships, or lives would
by tho passage of the bill bo greatly in
creased. If taxed on their gross receipts,
the express, telegraph and insuranco compa
nies would of course raise their rates pro
portionately, and the public would be the
immediate and only sufferers. Tako lifo
insuranco as one of tho most striking ex
amples. If tho life-insurance companies
are taxed, say 2 per cent, on their gross
receipts, the dividends of every policy
holder will be just so much less in conse
quence. In other words, Mr. Linegar pro
poses to exempt part of the dwellers in
Illinois from taxation, and to collect what
revenue is needed from thoso who are
endeavoring to prudently save thoir families
from want. Mr. Linegar, I understand, is
attorney for the litigants of a claim of some
sort against an insurance company, but I
submit that it is hardly fair for him to seek
to make the forty thousand policy holders
of Illinois suffer on that account.

A CURE FOR GOSSIP.

On eagle'e wlrtK Immortal icanda!a fly,
While vlrlnoua actlone are but born to die."
Thus sung the illustrious Harvey, and
his song will find corroboration wherever
man doth congregate. I am lead to this
dissertation by a desire to console your cor
respondents, "Kato W " and Pauline, who
seem both to be unprofitably exercised
over the existence of gossips in our own
and other communities, but who content
themselves with deploring it without mak
ing any suggestions as to its eradication.
Do not, ladies, allow the existence of the
evil to throw you into a state of undue
rage or melancholy, but make an effort at
reform, use your minds anJ pens in the
suggestion ot means by which a change in
our social state may be worked and, know
ing of your ability, I feel confident that
your efforts will not be wasted. And to
provo that I am willing to lend a
helping hand myself in this noble work, I
will give the ball the first kick, in the hopo
that you and others will follow suit.
What is tho cure for gossip? Simply
culture. There is a great deal of gossip
that has no malignity in it. Good naturcd
people talk about their neighbors because,
and only because, tlK-y have nothing else to
talk about. As I write there comes to me
the picture of a family of young ladies. I
have seen them at home; I have
met thein at social gatherings; I have
caught a glimpso of thein, going from
book store or a library, with a fresh vol
umn in their hands. When I meet them,
they aro full of what they have seen and
read. They arc brimming with questions.
One topic of conversation is dropped, only
to give place to another in which they aro
interested, and I have left them after a de
lightful hour, stimulated and refreshed,
and during the whole hour, not a neigh
bor's garment was soiled by even so much
as a touch. They had somethiug to talk
about. They knew something and wanted
to know more. They could listen as well
as they could talk. They speak freely ol a
neighbor's doings and belongings. They
have no temptation to gossip, because the
doings of their neighbors formed a subject
very much less interesting than thoso which
grow out of their knowledge and
their culture, and this tells the
wholo story. The confirmed gossip
is always either malicious or ignorant.
Tho ono variety needs a change of heart,
and the other a chango of pasture. Gossip
is always a personal confession of malico
or imbecility, and all, young as well as
old, nhoiild not only shun it, but by tho
most thorough culture, relievo themselves
from tcmptatiou to indulge in it. It is a
low, frivolous, and too often a dirty busi
ness. There aro neighborhoods in which it
rages like a pest. Churches aro split in
pieces by it. Neighbors aro niado enemies
for life by it. In many pursonB it degener
ates into a chronic disease, practically in
curable. Cai't lie Left Ont.
