CAKO. ILLINOIS. SUNDAY
The Cairo delegation arrived safely at
the prings lu time for dinner, after a tedious
ride over the Lilli and down the hollows of
the beastly strip of road that lies between
Vienna and the cool valley at the foot of
the rocks from which flows these health
giving waters. Leaving Cairo with its broil
ing days and sweltering nights, one night
here has served amply to show the contract.
Your readers have already, in a previous
letter, read a fair description of the leau
ties of the scenery, the quality of the waters
and the comforts of the house, under the
supervision ot Mr. J. It. Brown, or I should
say Mrs. Brown, because, owing to the ill
health of her husband, the most of the de
tailsthe wear and tear of the business,
falls upon the shoulders ot this slender,
little lady, and it is not worth my while to
ctt iU Let tao only repeat tliut it is cool
and breezy through the day and
extra cool, comfortable and quiet through
the night, no heat, no bugs, no tuobquitoes,
no noise. The man who wrote of a coun
try "Retreat" "It is just lovely to slerp in
the country these fine mornings, with a
gobbler gobbling under your window, and
a calf bellowing like a concert saloon bari
tone on one side of tlie house, while a cow,
his mother, is mooing mez.o-soprano on the
other, and roosters are crowing, and the
milk maid is playing tamborine with the
bottom of the milk pail, and drivers are
going by whistling, and the parrot is yell
ing at the goat that talks back, and a haL'
dozen boys are throwing green apples at
the roof to see them roll down and the
landlord is swearing at his wife in the back
kitchen," describes the very antipode ol
Dixon Springs. We have none ot that here
The awakening sound heard by the sleeperf
is the ringing of the first bell for breakfast
We have cows and consequently an abun
dance of pure milk, but the cows knov
what is due to strangers and never mot.
The turkey gobbler, a lonely old yellow
bachelor, is made a sort of shuttlecock at
night by practical jokers and never goo
Ifles; our chickens are fried to a beautiful
brown and never crow, and our landlord
swears only at the "Modocs."
We find a great many improvements and
conveniences not found here on previous
visits. The grove is furnished with seats,
the springs are walled with stone, and ice
is abundant and is used lavishly. The
great drawback is the rooms or rather the
but the comers exceed tbe goers
and the rooms and every available space for
cots are at all times overcrowded. Still,
places are provided for ail "'bo cotn or
who cannot be persuaded to wait a lew
days. The iy our party arrived Here,
there was only one vacant room and, al
though the arrivals before midnight of that
day numbered twent-three, all were satis
factorily lodged and fed.
Evansville, Paducah, Metropolis, Gol-
conda, Carbondale and Cairo are all well
represented here. The Cairoites seem to be
contented and happy. The life is pure
country, free from the conventionalities
and stiffness that surroum's one in the city,
and is such as all can enjoy, while the
rambles over the rocks and through the
woods are great auxileries to the tonic
properties of the waters ot the springs, and
are entitled to no small share of the credit
for robust health and ravenous appetites
that follow a few days sojourn "on the
hill." The bill of fare is made to suit these
appetites, and so far as quantity and quali
ty are concerned the tare, with tho
usual variations, are the same
for breakfast, dinner and supper
and apetites are equally as gxd among all
the guests for breakfast (something unus
ual) as at either of the other meals. We
h"Je fresh beef and mutton, ham, chickens,
corn bread, light bread, rolls and graham
bread, potatoes, beans, peas, tomatoes, &c,
cooked country style, milk, ice water, cof
fee, tea and bottled beer, of course no
body drinks that; we have games of chance
and games that give no one a chance to
win; very little love making and less of
fashion and style; ladies and gentlemen en
gage in "honest" games of croquet and the
more ladies the fairer ind the "honester"
the game. We have music dancing and
singing and tho "Modocs" for amusement ;
a violin and a violinist, a piano and sever
al pianists, with a half dozen "drummers"
to make things lively, and they do it.
Cairo is well represented by Wood Rittcn
house, Flyman, Harmon Black, Mrs. Web
ster and family, Mrs. Blauvelt, Mrs. Fulttn
and family, Mrs. J, II. Jones and family.Mrs
Harry Walker and family aud a
number of others all healthy and
happy, if we except little
"Dick" Fulton, who, although rather trail,
is as well if not much better than he would
be anywhere else. It is useless to engage

rule and people should take their chances

ABOUT THE COMET.
There is just now in the weather depart
ment an effort made to scatter a little much
needed rain in this neigh borhood, but time
alone can tell whether the effort will lie a
success or not. Has this portiou cf our
MMundane Sphere" slipped toward the.tor
rid zone, or has that brilliant narrative of
the comet something to do with the ex
treme hot weathor that suffering humanity
is now erJ;l'trint If tho former be the
ph:k Witt;.' oii vvruxt in tlio niys
ferics of eUctro-magnestism cable or wire
enough of lightning to inform Vennor to
havo things put into tie right shape again,
but if it's the lattor I don't know what to
do, for this comet is just the strangest kind
ot a stranger. Out of the whole host of
scientists who have interviewed this grand
Mogul of the nocturnal ethereal world, no
two of them can tell the same story about
his appearance, the fabric of bis gorgeous
appendage, or whether this is his own, or
whether he hasn't been pilfering the ward
robe of Juno, and now desecrating that
Goddess' imperial court dress by nichtly
flaunting its trail to tbe vulgar gaze of the
creatures of this planet.
They can't even agree upon the object of
his visit, where he is from, and where he is
going, in fact not one of them even knows
the age, size, or Christian name of this
strange being. It might be that he is just
some stuck up youngster sent abroad by a
rich daddy to finish his education by travel,
and now being out of reach of parental
control, is putting on airs. I guess he don't
know that down here in this world, only
fashionable Indies wear trails, and that
gentlemen would scorn to have such thing
attached to their coats. Again it might be
that his excellency is sent by his satanic
majesty, to warn us that the substitution of
hades doesn't alter the atmosphere or tem
perature of the place in the least and to im
press this fact upon our people has come
netr enough to cause the mercury to climb
nearly out of the thermometer.

the American Historical Record, some para
graphs relating tho history of that famous
song, "The Star-Spangled Banner."
It was written during the war with Great
Britain, which is generally spoken of in
history as the war ot 1812. The British
forces had captured th city of Washington
and destroyed iu public buildings, and
wre iirenarinc to attack Baltimore.
Francis Scott Key, a patriotic American,
and, at the time, a citizen of Washington,
wrote to his mother, on the 2d of Septem
" I am going in the morning to
Baltimore to proceed in a flatr vesscl to
Gen. Rsa. Old Dr. Beanes, of Malboro, is
taken prisoner by the enemy, who threaten
to carry him off. Some of bis friends have
urged me to apply for a flag and go to try
to procure his release. I hope to return in
about eight or ten days, tho' it is uncertain,
as I do not know where to find the fleet.
God bless you, my dear mother.
F. 8. Ket."
"The president, James Madison, granted
Mr. Key permission to go, and he went with
a friend in a cartel-ship, under a flag of
truce. They found the British fleet at the
mouth of the Potomac, preparing to attack
"The British admiral agreed to release
Dr. Beanes, but refused to let him or Ids
friends return that night. They were
placed on Ixwrd of another vessel, where
they were carefully guarded, to prevent
them from communicating with their coun
trymen concerning the proposed attack.
Tho vccsel was anchored within sight of
Fort Mcllenry, which tho British
fleet pioceeded to bombard.
"Tho three Americans were compelled to
endure all night long the anxiety of mind
produced by the cannonade; and they had
no means of knowing the result of tho at
tack, until 'the dawn's early light.' They
awaited that dawn with the most intense
feeling. When it came, they saw with joy
that 'the old flag was still there.'
"It was during this bombardment that
Key, pacing the deck of the vessel, com
posed that immortal song, 'The Star-Span
gled Banner.' The rule first draught of it
was written on tbe back of a letter, and he
wrote it out at full length on his arrival in
Baltimore.,' Soon after, it was printed, and
at once became exceedingly popular. It
was sun everywhere in public and private,
and created intense enthusiasm.'' St

A Novel Way to Kill Locust
Assaf Pasna has sent 600 men to the
plain of Troy to aid in the destruction
of the locusts. In the heat of the day
they are taken by driving them on to
sheol; in tbe morning and evening,
when stationary and massed an inch
deep, thev are stamped or rubbed out
with the foot. In the collection of the
locusts by means of sheets, personal
observations show that the insect hesi
tates to jump on to white-colored cloths,
but has no obioction to dark. Tbe dif-
erence in the take on the different col
ored material is striking. Of all the
methods ol extermination, the most el
loctual is the rubbing out with the foot
