Tho shelves of all the merchants in the
city are heavily laden with goods of every
description, in anticipation of a brisk holi

At tho meeting of tho Cairo Temper
ance Reform club, at the hall on Tenth
street to-night, it is expected that cither
Mr. Flowers, of Paducah, or Prof. Allyn, of

and are earnest temperanco workers.
Gen. Raum has put forth a schemo of
civil service reform which provides for tho

amination as a preliminary to appointment,
a temporary appointment on trial, eliglbill

is a curiosity in its wny.
Since January the 1st, 1881, up to yes
terday alwiut three thousand and five hun
dred water crafts lauded at tho Cairo
wharves, of which number nino hundred
and seventy-four paid wharfago. The ton
ago of each craft was on an average ono
thousand pounds or a total of about 3,500,
000 pounds. During this month these fig
ures will bo considerably swelled, for some
of Cairo's best river business in tho year is
yet to come.
At tho Odd Fellow's meeting held at
tho hall, on Commercial avenue, last night,
a large attendance was present. Tho chief
business of tho meeting was tho election of
officers for the ensuing term, which result
ed as follows: N. G., Jefi M. Clark; V. G.,
John A. Poor; permanent secretary, George
E. Olmsted; recording secretary, llcury C.
Loflin. The old board of trustees was re
elected. No other business of importance
Officers Olmsted and Mahanny caught
ono "Jim" Lewis, alias "Windy Jim," on
one of the wharf-boats on Wednesday in
the act of swindling another man and a
stranger out of ten dollars. Tho officers
made the rascal return the money and told
him that he had just a certain number of
hours to stay in the city, and that ho must
have left at the expiration of that time or
tako the results of a trial at the bar of
justice. "Jim" left.
Mr. Veunor will have it that the month
of December will be "cold, bitter, biting
cold, north and south, east and west, with
but sparsely snow covered ground in north
ern New York and Canada, ami bare ground
west and south." The fur wholesalers must
have been subsidizing Vennor, in erder to
work up a boom on the retail dealers. This
prophetic Canadian gives forth his instruc
tions to the weather clerk, and still tho
wind blowcth where it listeth, and no man
knows where it is going till it is gone.
A country wagon heavily laden with
goods of every description and drawn by
three sturdy mules, broke down on Poplar

One of the hind wheels gave way "dished

A fire started about 11 o'clock Monday
night in the town of Augusta, Woodruff

only three buildings out of 300 were left
standing. Among tho buildings reduced
to ashes were tho post office, tho Vidett
newspaper office, three hotels, and several

falling roofs and walls, and ' Borne, it is
feared, fatally. Tho total loss is estimated
at $250,000 or $300,000. The insurance is

Mr. Thomas Kcane is having another
two story frame building erected on his
vacant lot on tho westerly side of Washing
ton avenue, between Eleventh nnd Twelfth
streets. Tho house is to bo twenty-two
feet wide by fifty feet long; tho first lloor
to be arranged for a business of some kind
and the upper story for offices or family
use. Mr. John A. Poor has
tho contract for the lumber
work and Mr. John McEwen, for the brick
work. The piers upon which the sills aro
to rest are already completed.
For several days past a commercial
traveler for an Evansvillo clothing houso
has been in tho city ostensibly for the pur
pose of selling goods to merchnnts, but
really for the purpose eif taking orders
from private parties for shirts and other
clothing, which ho did as secretly as pos
sible. Chief Myers became cognizant of tho
gentleman's transactions, and informed him
that ho must either take out license ns tho
balance of our merchnnts were required to
do, or ho must leavo tho city. He choso
tho latter alternative, and left for home or
some other city in which to practice his
Tli roo arrests wore mado yesterday by
officers John P. Hogan and James Kinncar.
Ono was a case of plain drunkenness; tho
other one, one of drunkenness and disor
derly conduct, and the third was disorderly
and carried a razor which tho law terms a
concealed weapon when carried about tho
person, so that it cannot be readily seen.
They were all taken before Justice Robin
sou, who fined the first prisoner ono dollar
and costs; tho second, six dollars and costs,
and tho third, twenty-fivo dollars and costs.
Tho latter went to jail to break rock for
about ono month under tho direction of
Jailor Hjz. Martin.
Mr. Henry Hascnjagcr is preparing to
open a saloon and billiard hall in tho up
per end of . tho Vincent building, at tho
corner of Eighth street and Commercial
avenue. The Iioubo Is being generally over
hauled, and the Internal arrangement
changed so its to meet tho requirements of
the new Institution. It is also being newly
papered inside ami painted outside When
all tneso preparatory improvements are
completed Mr. Hazonjagcr will furnish tbo
rooms with a handsomo bar room outfit
and a couple of billiard tables, which are
even now on the way.
Mr. Thomas D. Herring is still in tho
city. Ho will not resume his occupation
on the road or do anything elso for the timo
being. Ho is at liberty to go wherever ho
may choose. Ho says that ho committed
the crime while under tho influence of
liquor and in a moment of great moral
weakness and reckless disregard for con
sequences; but that ho regretted the deed
before he had gone a mile from Charleston.
Ho regrets more than any ono that the
crime was perpetrated, and will doubtless
seek, by a life of uprightness in tho futuro,
to redeem himself.
Tho Cairo Casino will givo their Four
teenth anniversary ball on tho evening of
the 14th of the present month. The Casino
is an old and well known organization that
has grown up with Cairo and numbers
among its members our leading German
citizens. Their anniversary celebrations
are always looked forward to with pleasant
anticipations. This year especial efforts
will he made by tho organization to give
an entertainment that will exceed any of
their previous efforts, and give tho pcoplo
of Cairo an opportunity for amusement such
ns is seldom offered them. That the ef
forts of tho organization will bo well re
warded by a large, attendance there is no
Paducah News : Shortly after 3 o'clock
this (Wednesday) afternoon, while young
Bud Woods, nephew of Jailer Edwards,
was engaged in feeding tho prisoners in the
county jail, two negroes, who were confined
in one cell, broke therefrom, unarmed
young Woods, took from him the keys,
making him unlock the jail door, and es
caped. About half an hour afterwards one
of them was captured in a house near the
depot, by Mr. Will S. Greif, anil returned
to the jail. The other took to the commons
out toward Fisher's garden, and at last ac
counts was being chased by Jailer Edwards
and young Woods, and if the prisoner is
not fleet of foot will likely be brought back
Smoke and lire was seen to issue in
rather unusual quantities from a chimney
in a small shanty near the Mississippi leveo
yesterday forenoon and a general rush was
made for the shanty from which cries of
"fire" were heard. It was found that tho
woman of the house had attempted to light
the fire with coal oil, which she had in an
old fruit can, and in pouring tho oil onto
tho kindling which had previously been lit
with a match, the can fell from her hand,
throwing its contents, about a pint of oil,
into the fire at once. The result was, of
course, a great bluzo, not only in the room,
but also through the flue, and a great deal
of alarm among tho inmates of the domi
cile. But the fire.soon wasted its force and
subsided without Hny interference from any
ono and without doing any damage beyond
filling the room with soot and smoke.
A colored girl was pushing a baby
buggy containing a baby along Washington
avenue yesterday forenoon about eleven
o'clock. When she attempted to cross over
Seventeenth street ono of the wheels of tho
buggy went down between the planks, sud
denly turning the buggy about half over
ami throwing the baby over the side out up
on the planks head first. With the assistance
of a gentleman passer by the buggy, was
righted and tho baby, with blood running
down its cheek from a cut in the side of its
little head, was replaced in tho buggy and
hurried home. The heroism displayed by
tho child, which could not have been over a
year old, was something remsrkable. It
cried at first, of course, but after it had
been replaced in tho buggy, it gave only a
few sobs nud then was entirely quiet.
There is a moral to this occurence which
will at once suggest itself to the mothers
who may read this.
At a well attended meeting of tho
Womans Chistian Temperance Union hold
at tho Reform hall yesterday afternoon at
3:30 o'clock, tho following officers wero

night, which was tho third and Inst night

man, ba'.c-hcadcd, bare-footed, and having
only a pair of thin pantaloons and one sus
pender as a covering far his body. He was
a white man, at least he would have been
but for the accumulated terra firms on his
phiz, and he had the appearance of being
partially deranged; for his eyes glared
wildly attwo men he happened to pass while
running at a furious rate across the com
mons through weeds, ditches and mud.
But he said not a word, continued in his
wild career until he reached the fenco of
one of tho vegetable fields, which he scaled
and disappeared near tho brick yard. No
one attempted to follow him, and no ono
knew, whence he came; but it is likely that
he was some poor half-witted tramp, who
hangs around a bon-firc on the outskirts
of tho city by day, and hnunts the back
yards of'the residences in the city by night,
and who was overtaken in his rambles by
the light of day. There arc a larger num
ber thnn usual of bird looking characters
in tho city, as any ono taking a walk
through tho streets at any time of day can
see, and there is a corresponding increase in
tho danger to property and in tho work of
tho officers. It is not so much tho ragged
and dirty appearance of theso strangors as
tho lazy bearing and devilsh expression of
countenance, which forces tho conclusion,
that most of tho wretched loungers passing
