A larger vote was poled at our recent
city election than that poled at the elec
tion in 1870. At that election Mayor
Thistlewood received 885 votes and Mr.
Winter, 784 -a total of 1G9. At this elec
tion Mayor Thistlewood received 877, Mr.
Winter 828 and Dr. Clarke 18 a total
of 1718 votes, or' forty-nine more
than were cast in 1879 when
every possible etfoit was made to bring
out a full vote.
While well paved streets arc a great
advantage to a city they have also their
disadvantages. When a street is all mud,
a team, going no matter how fast, can not
he heard; when it is dry, solid earth, only
a low rumbling can be heard, unless the
vehicle is much worn;but when the street is
paved as Eighth street is, with stone and
gravel, a wagon, or even a light buggy, can
lie heard from one end of the street to the
other and, as it draws nearer, the
grinding noise becomes harsher
until it drowns every other sound
that is made. Merchants and others living
along the street find this very disagreeable
because, w hen a number of teams are con
stantly passing and repassing their places
of business, they are very much interfered
with in the transaction of business with
their customers. One cannot hear what
the other has to say unless the doors are
closed, or they yell like mad. But this
slight- disadvantage must be borne with
in view of the fact that the advantages are
so many anil so much greater.
Yesterday morning between six and
seven o'clock the alaim of flro was sound
ed from the down town engine houses ami
quickly taken up by those up
town. The cause was the
appearance of a largo flamo through tho
roof of a small two-story building in the
rear of Mr. V. L. Bristol's grocery, on
Eighth street, between the avenues, The
building was used below for poultry dress
ing, chiefly, ami contained an oven with an
iron kettle for heating water, and a lot of
wood. Tlie stove-pipe passes through the
second floor and out on tho roof, and is
well guarded against wood work by venti
lators and masonary. The second story
of the building was used as a storeroom
for surplus stock ol baskets, toy wagons,
carts, etc. Yesterday morning a fire was
built in tho oven below preparatory to
dressing t some poultry mid while

broke through the roof. A number of
per nH were immediately upon the scene
iiinl, with buckets of water, taken from
the several cisterns about the place, did
good work until the tlru department ar
rived, when in a few minutes the flames
were extinguished. The damage done the
building is not great as it was but a small
structure, but whatever it was, it is a total
loss to Mr. Bristol whoso insurance on bis
store and outhouses expired only day be
fore yesterday, at noon. Ho did not
renew his insurance because he
expects to tear down the old house soon to
make room for a new one. The loss on
stock will amount to about one hundred
dollars, this is covered by insurance.
A negro uained Anderson, in attempt
ing to step onto the foot board in front of
a Cairo & Yinceiines switch engine that
was coming up from below Sixth street,
missed the board, stepped right on the rail
in front of the wheel and had his foot
crushed to a jelly. He hung onto the
railing in front of the engine and was
dragged along for about two squares before
it was known by tho engineer that he was
hurt. The engine was stopped near
Eighth street and ho was taken to the
office of Drs. Parker where his foot was
amputated. It is too bad to loose a limb
in this horrible way. Any person that is
so unfortunate as to meet with such an ue
cident is usually pittied by those of sound
body, but, though it may seem heartless to
say so, they do not always deserve
it. There is a certain class of fools-
train men, mostly who pride themselves
upon their ability to board a train in id-
most any manner, from either side, the
front or the rear, no manner how fast it
may be running. They imagine that they
are being admired by the passing crowd
for their fearlessness when, in
tact, they are looked upon a.
very foolhardy and very coxcouiical.
There may not be a state law which, it
properly enforced, would prevent these
conceited simpletons from making such
confounded asses of themselves, but there
is one which punishes others.not train men,
for trying to upo them and it is probable
that now, for about two weeks,this law will
be enforced. It is strange that the words:
"It shall la: unlawful for persons not con
nected with the road to jump off or onto a
train while in motion," must always be
bathed in human gore before they can be
seen by those whose duty it is to enforce
their observance. But 'twas ever thus and
'twill ever be thus, what's the Use in bav

A rather quiet but very happy event w;is
the wedding of Miss Jessie F. Phillis and
Mr. Kobcrt Hinkle yesterday evening. The
ilfair had been kept very quiet not even
the newspaper men knowing that it would
take place when it did until a tew hours be
fore it came oil". Yet it had been arranged
long before hand and dame rumor had let
out several uncertain hints concerning the
time of its occurance.
The parties to the contract are two of
Cuiro's best known and most highly res-
lected young persons, who have for several
years figured prominently in society and
made friends of all they met. Miss Jessie
is the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
John B. Phillips, old residents of Cairo,
and Mr. Hinkle is tho oldest son of Major
Jessie Hinkle, ot Kentucky, but for a num
ber of years a resident and prominent busi
ness man of Cairo.
The ceremony was set for six
o'clock sharp, at the residence of
the bride's parents, on Walnut street,
between Thirteenth and Fourteenth streets;
but it did not come oil' until (!:15 o'clock.
Hev. B. Y. George, of the Presbyterian
church, officiated, performing the beauti
ful ceremony in a solemn manner. Only the
immediate relatives and most intimate
friends of the family were invited, of whom
there were about fifteen in all present,
which made an exceedingly pleasant little
gathering. When the last words of the
ceremony bad been protiounced, and Mr.
Robert and Miss Jessie stood before the lit
tle audience as Mr. and Mrs. Hinkle, they
were overwhelmed with hearty congratula
tions and many well wishes for their future
life. A hearty repast was then partaken of
from a table filled with cake and delicacies
in varieties and forms without number.
The presents, though not numerous, were
elegant and costly. Tho following is a

The morning session of the Social Sci
ence yesterday was opened by a report of
the Cairo work in that department by Mrs.
L.J. Rittenhoiise. It was concise. It told of
the efforts that had been made, and al
though more social than practical had been
of real benefit. Mrs. Candeo gave a paper
on a subject that may seem to many minds
of small matter, although the fact is ap
parent that after marriage a woman must
then learn to he interesting to her husband
and family aside from chances of beauty.
To prove against the danger of losing th;
attention of husband and children that arc
so dear to her, she must cultivate mental
and moral qualities that will render her at
tractive. The best methods 'vere spoken of
by tho writer, whereby those of little time
could best secure these ends. A discussion
followed, n member writing; then Mrs,
Root in her inimitable manner gave one of
her delightful readings. Miss S. A.
Richards, of Chicago, gave an admirable
paper on "The Relation of Education to
Temperance." This was shown to be the
soil, water and air. that must gi to make
a perfect tree, Educat the children in
good 'irecepts wisely and Well, und save
the drunkards by and br. The
good in the paper was best dis
played by the remarks made after
ward. Whatever stimulates thought has
never been riven in vain. In the after
noon the ladies wore agreeably surprised by
the llit;li School pupils attending the exer
cises. The paper on DoIim stic Science by
Miss Lamed, was read by one of the ladies,
the lady herself not being able to attend.
It was made decidedly practical, by show
ing w hat a reform women could work, if
by a knowledge of chemistry they could
analjze the sugar, vinegar, extracts, etc.,
that h re placed in their hands to cook with,
and thus expose the amount of worthless and
poisonous tra.-h we use, and cause a storm
of wrath to l: visited ujxiri the heads of
adulterants of food. Rev. Benj. George fol
lowed with a sugg'-stive paper on "Organ
ized Charities." It was very entertaining
aii' 1 wise in its counsels. Tho paper on
"Practical Art" by Mrs. Hot of Chicago,
was one that the young girls who listened
to it must have felt that whatever latent
taste they had for art, should be carefully
improved, and in the future if left alone
in the world, there was something Wsidos
teaching for them, and at the same time the
writer made a plea for the girls to be al
lowed a chance now, and thus till hands
and brain with such pleasant occupations
that all worry for present or future will be
done away with. Tho Association then
adjourned to meet at 8 o'clock v. m.
In the evening the exercises were more
interesting, if possible, than they had been
before and it was probably intended that it
should be so because they were to conclude
the series of meetings. The principal
feature was the lecture of Mrs. Helen Ekin
Starrett, of Chicago, on the subject of "The
Future of Educated Women," The sub
stance of the lecture was generally ackriowd
edged to be tho production of a fertile
brain, well stocked with facts and capable
of arranging them and clothing them
in attractive language. It was
read in a very captivating
manner and listened to throughout with
After the lecture n reception was given
tho ladies of the Social Science Association
by those ot the Woman's Club and Library
Association at which a brilliant musical
and literary programme was gone through
with. Miss Ayers opened tho exercises
with an instrumental solo; she was follow
ed by Mrs. W. P. Ilalliday with a vocal
solo; then a recitation entitled, "Magdal
cna," which was to have been given by
Miss Kittie Alvord, was well rendered by
Mrs. Hoot, of Chicago; after this another
vocal solo by Mrs. J. M.L'ins len am) an
other recitation by Mis. W. P.
Wright, closed the evening's programme
in a manner that left a deep
and pleasurable impression upon all pres
ent. The meetings of the ladies have been
eminently successful and furnished profita
ble entertainment to nil who attended
them. Tho public ami the ladies more
immediately interested in them will have
cause to remember them with feelings of
satisfaction for many months to come.
