The Bulletis must acknowledge
with thanks the receipt from Mr. R.'S.
Wires, business manager of the Madison
Square dramatic company, of a beautiful
souvenir, issued by that company on its
four hundred and fiftieth presentation
of "Hazel Kirke," and giving striking
scenes from that justly popular play. But
while making this acknowledgment we
cannot help giving vent lo feelings of
wrath against the person who purloined the
souvenir from the editorial tablo,
On Twentieth street yesterday a num
ber of children were playing around a bill
board which had been plsced loosoly up
against a fence or house. Several of the
little ones crawled between the board and
its support and shoved it over, either acci
dentally or purposely; it fell on top of one
little boy, bearing him down to the ground,
but fortunately not injuring him to any ex
tent. He yelled lustily, however, and sev
eral larger boys of the neighborhood camo
to hia assistance, lifted the board from him
and took him homo to his ma.
A prominent physician of St. Louis
gives the following suro method of discov
ering small-pox: "The feeling of tiredness
and paio in the back are almost universal
and prominent symptoms, but the one
thing that distinguishes small-pox from
every other is the hardness of tho eruption.
By pressing and passing the hand over the
forehead or legs the feeling is exactly that
which would be caused by medium Blzed
shot being buried under the skin, and tho
severity of tho discaso may certainly be
known by tho number or thickness of these
shot like bumps."
At Mt. CarmeLIlL several deaths from
small pox having occurred, the mayor or
dered that services in all tho churches be
stopped. Ono church refused to recognize
tho order and held a festival. Tho mayor
thereupon tolcgraphod for advice to the
state board of health, which instructed him
to compel obudiunco to his order by force
if nuccesury, and to call for state militia to
aid h.im In case tho ordinary officers wcro
powerless. They also instructed him to
have every person who attendod tho festival
vaccinated. This incident illustrates the
activity of tho statu board in stopping the
scourge, nnd also their apprehensions that
it will become epidemic.
At a special meeting of the city coun
cil hold Saturday aftornoon tho money re
mainrng in railroad strip fund was ordered
to bn transferred to the general fund and
tho amount replaced in the former fund
from the tax levy of 1881. A communica
tion from Captain W. M. Williams, Bgcnt
at this point of the Cairo and St. Louis
railroad, asking if tho objections made by
the council to the company's proposition to
cross Washington avonuo above cross levee,
and cross levee, would bo withdrawn if the
company changed its lino of way to tho
outside of tho new levco. . The captain's
communication was referred to a joint
committee for its consideration and report.
: the Cairo Choral society met at the
residence of Mrs. J. M. Lansden, on Fifth
street, last night. It was not a meeting
for practice, but a social reunion of the or
ganization, and was attended bv about all
the members and some of thoir friends. It
was, perhaps, tho mo.t agreeable moeting
the society has had for a long' time. The
time was spent in various ways, chiefly by
music and song in which tho members . of
the society excel. Beautiful solos, duets and
quartottos, with piano . . accompaniment,
were rendered In a stirring manner , by
the ladies and gentlemen present, Tbe
meeting will probably be long remember
ed by those who ' attended it in connection
with tho pleasantest events of their social
The water in the Wabash river contin

depth of several feet. The steam-mills la
the Town of Chauncey and the Novelty
Machine Works have been compelled to
shut down, tho wator driving them out. A
portion of tho roadway leading from Lafay
ette, Ind. (o Chauncey, a small town on the
opposite bank of the river, is under wator,
and all communication is by means of skiffs.
This proved a serious inconvenience to the
country folks, many of whom were unable
to get to this city to do their Christmas
trading. A lad attempting to rido accross
the levee got into deep water, and only
saved himself by clinging to the horse,
which swam out. August Minnich's team
ran off the levee bank, and one horse and
the wagon were lost.
A serious runaway nearly took placo
on Commercial avenue, near Seventeenth
street, yesterday afternoon. A colored man
was driving a somewhat spirited horse,
hitched to a buggy, up the avenue, and
when at the point named a whito urchin,
who had not yet gotten over celebrating
Christmas, threw a burning fire-cracker
across tho street, which exploded just after
it passed over the horse's back. The ani
mal sprang to one sido at first and nearly
upset tho buggy, causing the driver to let
go the reins and catch hold of the seat;
then the horse took a sudden lunge for
ward which righted the vehicle and enabled
the driver to again catch up the reins and,
after some distance had been passed over,
in stopping tho frightened horse. Hsppily
no damage was done.
Tho many country papers in Southern
Illinois are sugar-coating Representative J.
R. Thomas all over because he spent a year
in the far west; because he remained at
Washington during the late president's ill
ness; because he is so healthy and robust;
because he wears good clothes and an
empty, pocket-book, and because he recent
ly introduced thirty-five or forty-three bills
(some say the first number, and others the
second) in the federal house of represen
tatives. In what way any of these things
enhance Mr. Thomas' valuo as a represen
tative in congress it is very difficult to
understand. It is plain, however, that the
editors of these little papers are enamored
of Mr. Thomas, and that in their blind,
unreasoning affection for him, they over
look, or transform into virtues, all his faults
and grow eloquent in praise of him where
he deserves no praiso at all.
Dr. William Wood, Alexander cpunty's
worthy overseer of tho poor, is ahgry. He
is very angry at TnB Bulletin, because,
be said, The Bulletin abused him wrong
fully. Tho doctor is a good physician and
an educated gentleman; he has served tho
county for many years in tho capacity of
overseer of tho poor and county physician
combined, and tho fact that ho has hold
tho office so long ,givcs ground for the be
lief that ho has generally served the county
well. But the doctor is human, and there
foro liable to err, just as common people,
who do uot glory in a distinguishing title
and a public bffico with the princely
sulary of f 32.00 per month, sometimes do;
therefore, it is not strange that he did err
a few duys ago in his treatment of the
woman, referred to in Saturday's Bulletin.
But he denies that ho erred, and, with all
the fluency and eloquence of a born orator,
coupled with his experience of years as a
physician and a county officer, he declares
that he did his duty in the promises, and
what is worse abuses The Bulletin
for differing with him. TnB Bulletin
takes the doctor's unjust abuse calmly; it
professes to bo the doctor's friend, and it
knows that the doctor's wrath is but mo
mentary, and that, at heart, the doctor is
inclined to bu friendly toward Tub Bulle
tin, which, even in his fiercely eloquent
tirade, ho admitted to betheonlyrcBpectablo
paper lu the city. But let us reason to
gother. The Bulletin said in Saturday's
issue that it was the duty of the doctor as
county overseer of thu poor and as aphy
scian to go and see tho woman at onco,
have horkimincdiately conveyed to the
hospital and give hor whatever medical at
tention sho needed at the county's expense,
and that the doctor neglected his duty be
cause he did not do any of these things.
Tho doctor does not deny this; he admits
that Tub Bulletin stated his duties cor
rectly, and ho admits that he did not do
what Tuu Bulletin said he did pot do.
Ilfjgoes further than that. He denios the
statement mado in .Sunday's Bulletin,
that the doctor's illness "was 'a good
enough excuse for not attending to tho caso
himself," and assorts ' that ' his own illnea
was not excuso for not attending to the
woman himself. And yet, after admitting
all that Tub Bulletin charged and 6en
resigning atl claims to the extenuating cir
cumstances admitted by Tiib Bulletin to
havo been in his favor, ho charges Tub Bul
letin with having wrongfully abusod him

The opening of tho . new Reform hall
on Eighth street last night was a notable
event in the history of the Cairo Temper
ance Reform club and its several branches.
It was an event which marked an epoch in
the history of the temperance reform move
ment in this city from which subse
quent events will be dated. And it was
celebrated in an imposing manner. The
ball, as is known, is a new one and was es
pecially finished for the accommodation
of the Reform club and its tributaries, or
branches, if the other temperance organisa
tions in the city may be thus termed. It is
about twenty-five feet wide by seventy-five
feet long, and about eleven feet high. It is
furnished with windows on either end and
sido which pciffit the light of day to pen
etrate to everbart of tbe room. The floor
is laid in sojie kind of cement, which nul
ifies the sound of walking and dancing;
the walls and ceiling are pure white and
the frame work is painted. Gas
pipe run to all parts of the room and com
municate with veveral elegant chandeliers,
suspended from the ceiling at regular dis
tances, and with brackets placed along the
walls. The club tfas had a platform, about
a foot and a half high, ten feet wide and
running across the entire breadth of the
room, built at the front end of the hall; it
has covered the platform with a handsomo
two ply carpet,and furnished it with a num
ber of chairs, a table, a stand and an organ.
The general hall furniture consists of a
number of polished, iron frame benches and
a larger number of chairs. For the occasion
celebrated last night tho hall furniture
comprised also a large cooking stove, with
nearly all tho neccssay kitchen parapherna-
ia, and five extensive tables, drawn out to
their full length and decked with bright
colored cloths and Binning table ware. For
this occasion, also, the hall was elaborately
decorated; a number of the ladies and gen
tlemen of the several organizations had
been employed for several days before in
hanging pictures and mottoes upon the walls
and in gathering large quantitioff greens.
Some of the latter, known as swamp moss,
was obtained from tne Louisiana swamps,
aud is very beautiful. These the ladies
twisted into festoons, garlands and . other
meaning devices, and were used profusely
n decorating the pictures, the mottoes, the
brackets, the walls, the ceiling and the
chandeliers, until the , hall has almost the
appearance of a spacious grove in midsum
mer. Upon one side near the front of tho
room there as hippie link; upon the first
link are the letters, "C.R- T. C," meaning
"Cairo Tempenfnce Rofoim Club;" upon
the Becond, "W. C. T. U.," meaning "Wo
man's Christian Temperance Union," and
upon the third are the letters, "Y. P. T. C,"
which stand for ' "Young Foople's
Temperance, Club." , Opposite , this, on
the other, wall, is a large horseshoe, sprink
led with flowers, which, of course, means
"Good Luck" or 'Mascotte," as you please.
Back of the stage, botween the windows,
tre planted, in beds of green, two large
boquets of bright colored, artificial flowers,
which are good , works of art because of
their truenesi and nature. There are otier
devices of green, interspersed with flowers,
