Tho post office refuses to take them here,

many of tho old and earnest democrats

The duke ami duchess of Sutherland
passed through St. Louis without getting
olT the cars, when there were hundreds of
people there in good society ready to toady
ami kowtow to them and kiss figuratively
the hem of their garments. It is a shocking
thing that tho people of that delectable
place, and they arc no worse than Cairo or
any other largo city, were deprived of the
pleasure, nnd very unkind it was of the
duke aud duchess of Sutherland not to al
low them the privilege of dancing attend
ance on real nobility. For thoso who do
not take much interest in titles, may be
explained that tho duke of Sutherland is an
immensely wealthy and very commonplace
old peer and that his party was anything
but a sprightly one.
At the Madison Square Theatre, New
York, Hazel Kirkehas been withdrawn af

bert with nn already assured success. In
the approaching fall season tho Madison
Square will have a greater number of trav

original "Hazel Kirke" company will con
tinue its sueees .ful tour, and a son ind rep
resentative company will also travel with
this celebrated dramatic work. "Tho Pro
fessor" with the original cast will, among
others, undoubtedly nlso bo offered for the
consideration of tho public. It Ir com
panies like these that Cairo with its new
opera house will the coming winter have
the satisfaction of patronizing.
John Smith, who claims a residenco in
Missouri, camo to the city day bel'oro yes
terday morning and concluded to have' a
general old fashioned "high-lonesome." Ho
commenced "tanking up," continuing tho
process until about 1) o'clock at uight,
"taking in" tho Comiquo, where he hucamo
so offensive that ho was "fired out" by
Manager Walker. IIo then mouudcrnd
down towu, made a low calU, but was
so abusive- that finally Officers Mahoncy
and Kinncar were called and placed him
under arrest and were proceeding to jail
with him when ho drew a large pocket
knife upon Ollicei Mahoney. After Ma
honey had presented his rovolver, this was
given up. Mr. Smith had a trial last even
ing before P. M. Comings, who fined him
ten dollars for his disorderly conduct, nnd
twenty-five dollars for his assault on tho
officer. Being short about thirty-eight dot

This is tho "drowuiug season" and tho
loss of life from this cause is appalling
Wo are persuaded that half ot this mortal
ity might be avoided if tho people wero
fully instructed that tho chances of restora
tion to lite nrc much greater than is geuer
ally known. Cases have been recorded
where life has been recalled, as it wore, af
ter the body has been submerged for half
an hour and even longer; and there are in
stances where this has been brought about
only after hours of apparently fruitless la
bor. If, therefore, a body is recovered
withiu an hour or so after Bubmersion, tho
chances arc not lost of resuscitation; and if
this w'ere generally known, many a pre
ciotis and valuablo life might be restored to
sorrowing friends. These efforts should,
however, bo mado intelligently, but they
arc so simple that when a doctor is not
readily at hand, anybody of ordinary judg
ment can direct them. During the season
the papers can perform an inestimable ser
vice by reprinting directions for the treat
ment of tho drowned. In somo states
