ot Mr. Aisthorpe when the dog jumped at
him and buried his large teeth in the boy's
hip. At night the victim was reported to
be again nearly all right
Mr. Sadler, brother of the mayor of
Centraha, is in the city, in search of a
good location for a mammoth clothing es
tablishment. He has heard of
the great "boom" that has been
in progress in this city for a year
past and has come down to satisfy himself
that the reports of Cairo's prosperity are
true. He is well pleased with what he has
seen of the city and will doubtless decide
to locate here. He is an enerirctic and ex
perienced business man and a gentleman
whose presence as a citizen is very desirable.

at the attempted assassination ot the presi

president and those in authority when news
of the shooting came and the Saturday
moraing services ended in tears and pray

Night before last fire broke out in the
largo smoke house of Messrs. Hinkle,
Moore & Hinkle, which stands back of po
lice headquarters. The house contained
about seven hundred dollars worth
of hams and bacon, nearly
half ot which was totally destroyed. The
origin of the fire is not positively known,
but it is thought that either the smoking
embers broke out into a flame from the ex
cessive draft, or a piece of meat tell upon
them and caused them to blaze up.
The maximum temperature for six
teen hours preceding three o'clock p. m.,

Perhaps tho most fervent wishes for
the speedy recovery of tho president, out
side of those expressed by his own family,
come from telegraphers and newspaper
people. In addition to the humanity and
patrotism common to all good citizens of
the republic, these servants of the news-devouring
public have their own comfort to
consider. Never before in the history of
the science of telegraphy have such feats ot
"sending" and "receiving" been performed,
and it is certain that operators, correspon
dents and the others directly engaged in
compiling, forwarding and presenting news
to the people will be glad when the strain
la over. - .....
Yesterday morning, at 6 a. m., the
temperature at Bismark, Dak., read 58
degrees, and at 2 p. m., read 62 degrees,
while at Yankton, Dak., North Platte,
Neb., and La Crosse, Wis., at the same
time in the afternoon, the temperatures
read 64 degrees, 73 degrees and 75, respec
tively. The "cool wave" in the north ex
tends eastward as far as Pittsburg, Pa., as
was shown oy tho afternoon reports, at
which place the temperature read 86 de
grees having fallen steadily trom 94 during
the precoi ding sixteen hours. It is proba
ble that the cool wave may propagate
southward, far enough, so that its effects
upon tho atmosphere at this point will be
sensibly felt. It is to be hoped that the
wave may propagate.

Conley davoured it all at a twinkling and

BU1SNKHS OF IMPORTANCE TRANSACTED.
The city council held a special meeting
last night and transacted some business of
importance. The meeting was held princi
pally in order to confer with Mr. Pine,
agent of the Singer sewing ma
chine company, concerning a por
tion of railroad strip lying between
Thirty-fourth and Thirty-sixth streets.
The meeting was called to order by May
or Thistlewood who stated the object.
Under the head of unfinished business
ordinance No. 69 published in yesterday's
Bulletin, which requires that railroad
strip between Thirty-fourth and Thirty
sixth streets be vacated, was read and
Mr. Pine, agent of tho Singer sewing
machine company, stated that his object in
coming bofore the council was to confer with
it concerning that portion of railroad strip
which had been required to be vacated by
the above named ordinance; that the
ground would bo necessary in order to ena
ble the company to carry on its business
and he wished to know if and upon what
terms the ground could be purchased.
Alderman Halliday then offered a reso
lution authorizing and directing the mayor
and city clerk to "sell all that portion of
railroad strip lying between Thirty-fourth
and Thirty-sixth streets, in the fifth addi
tion to the city of Cairo, including the
vacated street referred to in
the ordinance alwve-mentioned
"at the price of ten dollars for each twenty
five feet of said strip, running from Thirty
fourth to Thjrty-sixth streets," etc. The
resolution was adopted.
The committee on streets reported on
bids for fining streets, referred to them at
previous meeting and recommended that
the bids of Messers. Leith, Amount, Smith,
Boxley and Franklin be accepted. Alder
man Wood moved that the report of com
mittee be received and concurred in. Mo
tion was adopted.
A few bills were also read and referred to
thecommitttee on claims.
The committee on police, jail and fire
department reported and recommended the
adoption of a rtjolution authorizing the
city comptroller to purchase for the use of
the police force of the city one dozen
"Bean's patent police calls,1 at a cost not
to exceed twelve dollar. The resolution
was adopted and the meeting then ad
From these proceedings and
other facts previously pub
lished in The Bulletin it may safely
be expected that the Singer company will
locate a branch factory here, although the
purchase of the necessary land has not yet
been effected. The offer made to the com
pany by the city, as may be seen from the
proceedings above, are very liberal and the
offer of additional land from other quarters
has been equally liberal, so that, if the com
pany really means anything by thess
( demonstrations it will have no reason to
complain that the ground is too high
If the gentlemen of the Singer company
will think favorably of the offers made
them and establish a business here that
will do themselves and the city honor, they
can rest assured of the good will and hearty
support of this entire community.
THE WOUNDED PRESIDENT.
LATEST NOTE FRO kT the bedside the
PATIENT CONTINUES TO IMPROVE SLOWLY
Saturday morning, 2 o'cloek. The presi
dent's condition is much more favorable
than at any previous time since the shoot
ing. He gained steadily all day yesterday
and at night was resting quietly and pain
leasly. The doctors seem to have no fear
for the ultimate result. The people
throughout the union will readily take
courage from the doctors, and there will be
universal rejoicing for what has been ac
cornplished in the president's behalf and
universal prayer for his speedy recovery.
The prospects for the president's speedy
recovery are increasing hourly. The symp
toms are unquestionably more favorable
every day, both as to the condition of the
wound and the returning strength of the
patient. His spirit has never been broken
for an instant, even while apparently at the
point of death. Since he has continued to
improve his playful humor has had to be
placed under restraint. His appetite is
such that its control has been takao, iroin
the Bteward and nurses and given to the
doctors, who prescribe what, how much,
and when shall he eat. All this is regard
ed as highly favorable, indicating returning
health. The doctors are sanguine. While
it is not concealed that tho presidout is
still, and will for some days continue to be,
in imminent danger, tho chances are no
longer against him. After to-day, eighth
since the wound, the odds are in his favor.
This is very much. Inbident to this favora
ble news, Mrs. Garfield was out for an air
