To tho City Council of the City of Cairo:
Gentlemen: Your street connntte bo
ng of the opinion that public improvements

necessary petition may bo filed with the
county court at its next session. We would
recommend that all oi tne anovo namen

A Feminine Month.
A poison who has mado feminine
mouths the subject of much study, vol
unteers his conclusions to males with
sweethearts. They are as follows: if
her mouth is very small, there is not
much mind, but overmuch shallow sen
timent. If she possesses a very lare
mouth, sh will possess a good brain.
If your sweet-heart has a coarsely
forined mouth, sho will ho sensual and
full of strong, coarse points of elwi ac
tor, and will raise a row in the fSmily.
If she has a delicately-formed mouth,
with rounded lips and of a velvety
color, she will have much sensibility
and perfection of character, but will
not astonish by her brilliancy o con
ception and execution. It is a good
mouth, because it is kissable aud sub
missive. Shun blue-lipped or thin

If the llamas are tired, they stop, and
