A few days ara Mrs. Jenkins, a col

and Walnut streets, left her pocket-book
lying under the pillow ot her bed, where
slm had laid it the night before, and went
to her usual day's employment. When she
returned home in the evening she went
immediately to get the pocket book, but it
was gone. The next day a little colored
girl of her neighbor' brought it to her
saying that she had found it, but the
money, to the amount of four dollars, had
been taken out. Further along in the day
the same little girl confessed to one of
Mrs. Jenkins children that she had stolen
the pocket book from under the
pillow and had spent the money
for a pair of shoes, some candy, etc. The
parents of the young culprit have offered to
refund the money at their earliest conven

The telephone is a good thing, a con

it is kept in good working order, otherwise
w hen it is not, or when the transmitter gets
mulish, as does No. 62, and is left in that
condition for days and weeks, it gets to be
an infernal nuisance. No. C2 has fits: the
bell will ring aud you whoop through the
transmitter, no one answers you, but a
voice from some where says to somebody
"No one in The Ri lletin office." Then
you get on the lever and yell at the antral
office. Rack comes a gentle voicu saying,
"your transmitter don't work ; can't hear a

On last Sunday City Engineer
Charles Tlirupp, became aware that the
Tenth street sewer was leaking a little and
he made an investigation. lie found the
leak of a more Berions character than lie
had at first supposed mid accord
ingly set immediately to work to
remedy the evil, lie employed
several men to nssist him. He was kept
at work nearly all day and it was only by
the greatest effort that lie finally succeed
ed in stopping the leak. During his ex
amination of tho sewer lie found that a
largo quantity of rubbish of every descrip
tion had settled in tho pipe, which would
greatly obstruct tho drainage
of tlio citv. Even when
thoroughly clean, tho twenty-inch pipes
running through tho levee, are incapable of
carrying off tlio immense volume of water
that is carried to them through thu six
foot culverU connecting with them. It
would bo desirable, therefore, that tho said
pipes bo enlarged enough to prevent them
trom becoming too easily clogged.
Mr. J. II. Cunningham, the gentleman
who received tlio majority of tho votes cast
lor city attorney at tho last city election,
yesterday procured signatures to Ids bond,
preparatory to entering upon tho dischnrgo
of his duties. Ho will present it to tho
council at its next meeting for approval
and ho expect that body to approve it.
That tho bond ia a good one, no ono will
deny. It Is a suflleient bond, against
which no objection can will be urged. If
this man is to bo debarred from asstimlnir
tho honors, duties aud emolument of
th office of city attorney for tho city of
Cairo, then objection must bo raised
against him that are not based upon the
bond. Ho claimes to a licelisod attorney ;
lie has been chosen by the highest power
in the land-thu people-to tho office he
seeks to occupy, and he has complied with
the requirements of the law in tho matter
of a bond. Under these circumstances,
admitting that his claim to a license
ho susceptible of substantiation,
!t will be u difficult matter
to successfully refuae him admittance to
the office, and to do this would be only a fit
sequel to the ciirautic farce enacted on
election day by "the highest ia the land
The New says that The Ri li.etiv
said that "it took tho word of a republican
that Mr. Tanner had withdrawn from the
rnco for city clerk," and then asks if we
would taken the word of a Lally democrat
to tho effect that "Vfr. Foley had withdrawn.
The News man is mistaken. The Dcl
i.ktin din not say "that it took the word
of a republican as a guarantee of Tanner's
withdrawal," ami therefore left that L'en-
tleman's name off the election tickets. The
Rllle-i in said nothing of that kind. What
The Rulletin did say was that "a
good republican was rcsnonsiblo
for leaving Mr. Tanner's name off
the election tickets'1 and denied the char-'e
of the News that the
blame for that little oversight. In other
words a good republican and one, too, who
had no choice between tiie two colored can
didates, dio leave the names off tho tickets
by a mere accident and he did this not only
without instructions from, but without the
knowledge of the proprietor and manaircr
ot The IJclletin. As to the insinuation
that Mr Foley's name would not have bem
so left off, it is entirely irrelevant. Such a
thing could not have occurred in, Mr.
Foley's or any of the other candidates' cases
for they interested themselves in the matter
enough to contradict any wrong rumor that
might have been sprung, while Mr. Tanner
'lid not take the pains to do this, so far as

ble species of quadrupeds, but will also
make the collection of the tax more uni-
lonn than it has been in years past. It is
his intention to impound all dogs that arc
found running ut large without Jiaviug the
metalic sab-guard, signifying that their
lease ot life has been purchased from the
city. But he does not stop hero as others
have done bclnre him. It is well known
that, while many owners of dogs, pay the
taxes on their animals whenever the time
approaches for doing so, there have alwajs
been many others who, either from a de
sire to beat tin-city, or because they thought
the city had no right to collect
the tax, kept their dogs in the house and
refused or neglected, to pay the tax. As a
natural consequence the number of those
who paid has been growing less year after
year and this year, many who have always
paid before, have-resolved not to pav, un
less the law-is enforced against all alike
unless their neighbors, who keep six dogs,
are made to pay six times as much as they,
who keen but one. This is nVht. Tint
.Marshal Robinson purposes to make it
very difficult for persons to evade the pay
ment of their dog tax. Ho intends that all
who own a dog shall either pay two dollars
for the privilege, or surrender the dog and,
as he can not invade, in person, tho prem
ises of the owner of an animal upon which
the tax is unpaid and take the said animal's
body for the tax, he intends to proceed
legally agaiust all such persons he intends
by tlio use of law to compel the
obedience of law. Tho resolution
is a novel and a good one, therefore
we hope it will be rigidly adhered to aud
acted upon. We believe that a dog that is
not worth two dollars per year to its owner
is worth less to tlio city and should be
"wrapped in tho dreamless drapery of
On tho first Tuesday of next month the
old city officers, who were not re-elected at

will, after two years of good public service,
step aside from tho beaten path upon
which bo many have trod before them, into

are Messrs. Ed Deznnia, Oeorgo E. Olm

will leavo their place freo frnm any im

untraineled by a remembrance of even a

to which they have been call. d. That they
can do as well as their predecessors have

each and every one of them will do as

either confirmed or dispelled within thu
next month or two. Wu shall see what we

should not expect too much 1'iom the new
city government. It takes time fur the

oiu.,r.u in uiu recent contest to blow away;
it takes time to organize; ti;e for the old
members to become acquainted with the
new order of things; time for tho new
member to gain a knowiedg-; of some old
things aud to fiuJ themselves in their new
responsibilities. The municipal innetiinc
lias been interrupted in its steady run of
two years; some of its old cog wheels have
been removed and new ones insetted, it
will therefore take time to test it and to
"readjust" (or Mahone) its various parts if
there is any hitch. While all this
is being accomplished the people
will wait patiently and silently in the hope
that, when all is again ready to start upon
a new course of two years more, some im
provement in the running of the mrehine
may be visible. That the manner of ad
ministering the city's government during
the last two years could be improved upon
none will deny, and, as nearly all who now
hold in their hands the reigns of city gov
ernment, and assist in guarding its affairs,
are men who have had several years of
practice in that art, it is not unreasonable
to expect that some improvement will be
made to appear in due course of time.

The weather is settled to that degree that
man and womanhood are casting longing
eyes towards shady lawns and are waiting
wistfully for the advent of nil out-door
games and exercises, of which, that to
which this article has special reference,

The chief drawback to archery and arch
ery clubs iu Cairo is the lack of grounds
sufficiently expansive to form a good range;
St. Mary's park affording the only place
where even a forty yard range can be made,
Nevertheless, tho few who take delight in
the pleasant pastime are looking up their
arrows and tcjting their bows and strings
preparatory for a summer's enjoyment. The
clubs all over the country are waking up
and prospects are that the interest in arch-
cry this season will bo greater than ever

So well and manfully did he
handlo the bow, so true and
straight was the flight of his arrow, that ho
became famous in all the country, nnd
aroused such enthusiasm among his friends
aud neighbors that they formed the first
nrchery club in America, and wero and arc
still known as "The Wabash Merry Bow

Maurice Thompson, became hardly less dis
tinguished than the pioneer himself, nnd is
called tho Robin Hood among modern
archers. For a few years this club had tho

did all tho archery practice.
In 1813, in England, men and women
began to do their own shooting, the first
grand national meeting being held at York,
in 1841. Soon after this, tho famous
"York Round" was established a the regu
lation to govern the shooting at tho national
meetings, and these regulations have sinco
obtained both in England and in this
'I he third grand national tournament is
to be held at rrospect Park, tho second
Tuesday in July. There aro nearly twenty
clubs already belonging to the national
archery association, representing the states
ot Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, Wisconsin, New
lotk, Iowa, Kansas, New Jersey, and
Pennsylvania; state mentioned in the
order in whieh thu rl
most of them since '78.
In archery outfits Americnn stand better
than English bows of the same class and
have all of the good points desirable.
These bows vary in price from 13 cent to
flO each. They are of Lancewood, Leniou
wood, Snakewood, Amaranth, Beefwood
and Spanish Yew, and are either self bows
(that is, made of a single piece, or are of
two, or even three, of the different woods
combined. Thev have b-cn HinrnmrMw
test-.-d by the stalwutts of the various clubs.
Every one manufactured is submitted to
two severe tests. The first, after the bow
is made aud before the horn tius are nut
on, it is put in a machine aud beut in such
a way that if there are any weak spots the
bow is sure to breuk. Again, after it is
thoroughly prepared, aud has been to the
finishing room, it is tested with an arrow
before beinc sent out.
It should be observed that the clubs in
careful and intelligent training are cautious
not to overdo the exercise. The novice
may bo surpised to learn that two arrows
are by the authorities considered enough to
shoot in a day, the number being increased
very slowly through the season. There are
some beauties of archery that are patent.

tho physical exercise, whieh is absolutely
required to insure success, and the mental
composure which comes from the necessity
of close, careful and accurate observation
of all surrounding conditions, aro greatly
to He commended.
it is to Do hoped that the practice of
archerj will increase, that many ladies es
pecially will find out for themselves during
the coming summer its "wiehory." One
of the lessons we learn from tlio increasin"
interest m physical exercises in its many
forms is that the lady can bo just as lady
like, the woman even more womanly, who
loves her body an 1 train it with the same
careful thought that tho mind is trained.
Much more might be said about tho com
panionship which grows up between her
self and her out-of-door surroundings, and
about the wholesome interest which 6ho
comes to feel in them. But this all be
