The city council had a special meeting
in the council chamber last night. No
important business was transacted. ;
iTier x)fof Mr. Frank S. McKnigh
1 1- Whitf1'"'' u now nc8rIV finished:
The teruperunco jeole met at Reform
hall last evening and transacted some busi
ness of minor importance. The meeting
was well attended and quite interesting.
Mr. B Lynch was robbed of two
fine coats night before lant by some one
who cut the screen out of the window of
his sleeping room and entered it. There i.i
no clue to the burglar.
The Ohio river fell a ouiirtcr of a loot
during yesterday. It was twenty -five and
a quarter feet alovo low water mark in the
morning at eight o'clock and twenty-five
feet even in the evening, at six o'clock.
Some interest was excited last evening
among pedestrians and others, who passed
the commons on the west hide of Washing
ton avenue, alxtve Fourteenth street, by
an attempt made by Messrs. Moses Foss,
Ford and Frazier to break a young horse,
belonging to the latter. The horse was
hitched to a small two-wheeled cart, which
he flung around quite lively at times.
Some of the telephone wires crossin'r
Washington avenue have been cut in order
to permit Mr. Louis Herbert's house, which
is being moved to Fourteenth street to
pass. This again sustrests forcibly the ne
cessity of having larger poles for the wires.
This, we understand is about to be done
and when this is done the jieople of Cairo
may expect a pel feet system and not before.
At the meeting of the Knidits of the
Golden Rule at Odd Fellow's hall a fi w
nights ago, the following officers were
elected for the ensuing year:
Alex Fraser, commander; Joseph Steajrala,
vice commander; John . ftobicn, preluto;
A. T. Dentin. --tnr.'r-T-tirriN : M ' 'Kufcfrr
day, secretary; F. Barclay, herald: A.
Clack, treasurer; Joseph Cavender, warden ;
T. J. Kerth, sentinel.
Another evil effect of the presence of
the comet, or of the resignation of Conk
ling was the loss of twenty dollars yester
day by Mr. S. B. Fenn. He drew two
twenty dollar bills from bis vest pocket
on 1 be corner of some street and hand
ed one to some one to take out five
dollars; the other bill he thinks he placed
in his pocket, but upon searching he found
it not, andean not tell where it went to.

at the beginning of the present week, con

The Woman's Christian Temperance
Union met at Reform hall on Thursday
afternoon. The attendance was very good.
Chief among the business transacted was
the adoption of a motion to the effect that
the association decorate the Tenth street
stand and on the Fourth of July
lttrnish the thousands ot stangcrs iu the
city wlio may wish it, cool water and lem
onad free of charge. That the. resolution
is a good one and will bo appreciated by
the many visitors thirsty visitors as they
will surely bp, cannot be denied. The few
dollars that it will takw to carry out suc
cessfully this idea will be gladly
contributed by the members of the
organization, because it will not
only be a blessing to the multitude, but
also, to a great extent, servo thn great pur
pose of thu organization.
-A gentleman from Pulaski county
came down a short time ago and told Mrs.
McCarthy that ho had a fino milk cow for
sale. She offered to nurchaso the cow und
told him to bring her down the uext time
ho camu to town. This tho gentleman
agreed to do and accordingly came in yes
terday bringing the cow with
him and took her to Mrs.
McCarthy's hotel, on Commercial avenue.
Hardly had Mrs. McCarthy seen tho animal,
when she recognized it as hers as the same
cow she had owned for years, nnd that had
gono astray when tho eipe-wator was bo
high that she could not get into her stable
Tho man protested that ho hud bought the
cow from a neighbor of his, who had
raised her, and that ho could prove
what ho said to bo truo. Mrs.
McCarthy was also ready to proTO by corn
petcnt witnesses that tho animal washers.
At this stage ot tho case, the man came to
tho conclusion that nothing could be ac
complished by making assertions back and
forth, and it was agreed that Mrs. McCar
thy keep tho cow until he wont home and
brought down tho man from whom he
bought her, when tho case will finally be
settled, whether in court or not remains, to
-A largo number of friends gathered at
the depot yesterday as tho lour o'clock
train of tho Illinois Central was making
flp, to say "good bye" to Mrs. Alvord and
her daughters, Miss Annie and Miss Kittio.
They join Professor Alvord in Chicago
where, after a few days anion;; friends, they
cica.i'Ti w aicli ut a climate and air that
they hope will bring the loses of health
once more to the cheeks of Miss Annie.
Their friends part with them with sincere
regret and underlying it is the fear that
their homo hereafter will be elsewhere than
in Cairo. The professor's ability may be
better appreciated, and his paths pieasanter
perhaps, but no where will he lind truer
friends than he leaves behind him in Cairo.
-It appears that "our informant" erred
in his account of the manner in which Mr.
John Ueeve lost his one hundred and thirty
dollars, and that some of the readers of TnE
Bclletin inferred even worse things from
tho short account given in yesterday's issue
than would be jtistitied,tven by tho slightly
untair account itself. The truth about tho
whole matter appears to be that Mr. John
Reeve did not ''handle a roll of money rather
carelessly"; did not "take it out of his vest
pocket, display it, and put it back again
several times, while conversing in an ex
cited manner"; be had no purpose of "put
ting up twenty dollars on a bet that he of.
fered to make"; but that he drew tho
money out of the watch pocket ot his
paints, together with some cigar checks,
and, in replacing it, missed the pocket
and allowed it to dron on tin.
rloor where it was probably found by
some stranger and carried away.
Mr. Teichman, in whose establishment tho
aftair occurred, does not permit betting of
any kind to take place in bis house, ar.d
Mr. Reeve would not bet thero or any
where else, for bis conscience will not per
mit him to do so. Ho baa suffered enough
in the loss of the money without having to
bear the jcnoniony of bcinjt a bftt'ng n:'u
-VI ho great comet, which ia flie centre of
interest for the scientific world, will appear
at reasonable times for observation a fow
nights longer. Supposing this brilliant
visitor to be the comet of 1812, an exchange
gives its history as follows: Astronomers
have been expecting the comet of 1811 or
1812 to make its appearance about this
time. This comet was supposed oy some
to have a period of about seventy years. It
has been said that it may bo narry's comet,
which camo aiid went in 182'J, or there
abouts, but that c:iu hardly bo possible, as
Harry's come! li a tv:t-r period. The
comet of Judea, known to the
Christian world as tho star of
Bethlehem, has been expected.
This one has returned several times since it
appeared to light the path of the wise men,
1,800 years ago the last time about 1750.
Its appearance about this period has been
predicted for many years. It was seen in
04.) and 1204, or thereabouts, in the constel
latian of Cassiopea, low down in tho north
ern heavens. It may bo that noted star
which blazed out in the heavens in the
sixteenth century with such marvelous
brilliancy that it could bo seen at midday.
It was first seen in 1578, and remained for
seventeen months, when it disappeared. It
was brighter than the stars of tho first
magnitude. It is scarcely possible that

A white man named Jesso Hooper was
held under a bond ot five hundred dollars
by Magistrate Comings yesterday for at
tempting to rob the safe of Mr. Henry
Breihan. Tho safe is standing in'
the office Mr. Breihan's soda factory,
close by a window which opens out
to tho sidewalk, and Hooper was seen by
Mr. Hallenberg, an employe of tho soda
factory, to bend in at the window, open tho
Sato door and draw forth tho money
drawer, which contained about three hun
dred dollars, mostly in coin, llalleuberc
shouted to the thief, who, seeing that he
was detected, became nervous, dropped the
drawer, scattering tho money all over tho
floor oud rau up Fourth street toward Ohio
Levee. Mr. Hallenberg gave chase, over
took him before ho got to tho levee Bnd
gave him in charge of Marshal Myers, who
arrived on tho sceno. When tho fellow
found that so serious a charge as burglary
was preferred against him he was surprised
and asked the judge since when an offense
such as ho had been guilty of, when com
mitted in tho day time, could bo mado bur
glary. He did not know that the law of
Illinois, which mado tho forcible entrance
of another's house and the taking there
from of any article ot value a burcrlarv onlv
when this was done in tho night timo, has
