TIIE CAIRO AND ST. LOUIS. RAIL
ROAD. We may not bo well posted in the roattor,
but it BceuiB to us that, from our stand
point, tho city council is standing in
their own light by maintaining an injunc
tion against tho narrow-qaugo road enter
ing tho city upon a right of way lawfully
obtained, and paid for by tho company.
Wo aro imfornioJ that if this road was per
mitted to enter tho city and to build their
embankments above high water mark on
their own right of way, either outside or
insido, now Levee Btrcot, so thcro would bo
no impediments to trains entering the city,
from high water, that not only thousands,
but millions of capital would be added to
that ahead here.
The road is now enjoined from crossing
Washington avonuo, beyond Cross levee,
aud also from crossing Cross loveo. This
cannot possibly bo in the interest of tho
taxpayers of tho city. Tho records of tho
council eliow that tho railroad company
bavo asked upon what torms and conditions
they can enter tho city. The right to enter
upon, or cross new Leveo streot, has been
donlod thorn, they now ask to come la on
tho outiido of now Leveo stroot, which
proposition is as yet unanswered.
Tho council may bo right in keeping
this road out of tho' city, or it may not.
We aro Informed that matters at issue are
In the hands of tho circuit court, and will
probably be decidod era long. We do not
ptotend to consuro any one, tr we may not
be full up in the merits of tee case pro or
Icon. One thing we do kaow, kowevtv. sad
that is, anything that tendd to drive capital
away from Cairo should bo adjusted with
as little delay aa possible.
Poverty and Distress.
That poverty which produces the great
est distress is not of the purse but of tho
blood. Deprived of its richness it becomes
scant and watery, a condition termed ane

dition, and scorfuhun swellings and sores,
general and nervous dehjlity, loss of flesh
and appetite, weak lungs, throat disease,
spitting of blood and consumption, aro

A Repentant Oat.
While the occupants of the pews in a
fashionable Brooklyn church were on
Sunday morning hwt awaiting tho opon
ing of service and trying to fix their
thoughts on tho contemplation of ser
ious "things a very large gray cat
mounted tho pulpit platform and
crouched under tho htatoly carved chair
generally occupied by tho pastor. Hav
ing secured this position, it began tho
uUor,anco of such grievous wails ns to
give indication that it had a great bur
don of sorrow fan its mind. While there
seemed to some persons to bo an appro
priateness in thus bringing a load of
grief into the sanctuary, others woro
disposed to think that tho cat could bet
tor have selected some other place aa a
refuge. The deacons and eldors were
ofjt'.o latter opinion. Tho pastor had
not yet taken his place, aud tho cat had
the platform all to itself. A doacon
and two elders advanced in order to
take measures to remove tho creature.
The doaoon grasped tho cat, which in
turn began to claw him and spit doli
ance at dim. The elders stood one at
each end of tho pint form, in o:se tho
cat should dodge away from the deacon.
For a moment it lookod as if both of
them miirht have to run to tho deacon's
help. The young persons in the church
regarded tho situation with intenso in
terest. Had it been anywhere else
than in a chvrcU thoy would have
cheered the doacon when, clasping tho
terrified brute iu liia nrrna, ho passed it
to one of the elders, who gravely car
ried it out tho side door. Hew" York

GEOEGE SCO VILLE,
OounBel for Dufuose in Guiteau Case.
Mr. Scovillo waa born at Pompey,
Onoudaga county, Now York, Oct. 10,
1824.. His father moved to Ohio in 183G,
tho subject of this sketch being then
twelve yoai s old. Ohio was then spare
ly settled and young Scovillo spent his
days in huuting and trapping in tho
wild woods. By his own exertions ho
managed to obtain a good academic
education, at the ae of twenty-two bo
gan the study of law, was admitted to
the bar in 1848 at Albany. N. Y. and
removed to Chicago, 111. In 1851 where
he now resides.
During his entire practice of thirty
years-, he has never undertaken a crim
inal case, save two, in which ho was
successful, and into which he was driv
en as he was into this caso. his practice f
consisting'of real-estato and Cuanoery
Ho became acquainted with tho Gui
teau family in 1819, at Freoport, 111.,
and after tho death of the mother of the ,
assassin, he married tho only daughter, '
In a private leltor referring to tho
present case ho savs:
"The force of circumstances has driv
en me into this case as into tho two
others; but onco onlistod I shall give to
it tho same tiroless persevcrence that
commenced aa a habit of my life in early
hunting days, aud has gone with me
througn subsequent years. I claim no
other talent than the ability for hard
His conduct of the caso has shown
him to be an ablo, logical and eloquent
ndvocato; tireless in Tiia efforts to save
tho assassin from the doom of a felon.
Tho outrnged feelings of tho people
could not readily accord to any other
individual in the country the same lole
ration and sympathy than do for tho
husband of tho sister of the felon, who
attempts to shield the wife of his bosom
from the eternal disgrace which would
embitter hor wholo life should her
brother suffer doath on tho scaffold.
The Peoplo Who Do Hot Kill Themselves.
"Too much silverware at tho start is
a dangorous thing for a young couple,"
says a modern philosopher "for it' calls
for other thing3 to correspond, and will
keep tho young man on a strain to keep
up appoarancos. Jknew a pair of brass
andirons to ruin a man thirty yours ago,
and ho never has recovered from it, for
they called for a fouder and the fonder
called for a fine rug and the rug for a
carpet and a carpot for curtains and
cornice, and so on and so fourth and
tifth and sixth, until he got in debt and
tried t soil hia houso to pay rmt and ,
couldn't sell it, but the sheriff canio
along and sold it jiiBt as easy. Extrav- ,
nganco and trying to keop up with
neighbors is tho great domestic troublo
in this country. It brings on financial
distress, and that causes speculation and
embezzlement and baniboozlement and
ends in whisky and suicide. There is
no security iu this life but honest indus
try nnd living within one's means.
Folks who do that dou't kill thomsolvos.
Tho correspondent who accompanied
tho Arctic expedition uf LiouL Greeley,
gives this graphic account of tho inte
rior of an Esquimaux hut, aud tho ev
ery day costume of its mistress: (
At Pro von a better opportunityN for
studying llio habits of the primitive Es
quimaux w as afforded than at any other
place wo have visited. Tho whalers
and exploring parties seldom visit it
and the intluenco of tlio white man is

habits of lite as practiced beforo they
Improved their condition, to a greater
extont than in othor parts of Greenland.
I spent four hours consecutively in one
of their least attractive "iglooa," or
huts. My pretext for bo protracted a
stay was ostensibly awaiting the com
pletion of a cap ot elder down, on
which one of tho squawa was engaged.
The hut was built of turf, moss and
atones, and was entered by a long, nar
row, low passage or tunnel so low that
I was com polled to crawl on hands nnd
foot, a inni disagreeable and humiliat
ing proceeding, as the dogs and natives
(not much belter in point of cleanli
ness) also have ingress and egress
through tho same vostibulo. On reach
ing the small interior hole, which was
living, eating and sloeplug room, tho
first glaueo discovered the misiress of
the houso in an extremoly airy costume,
sitting on tho shelf or platform oil
which they sleep. By duo process of
barter a neckerchief that I had worn
was transferred to tho possession pf tlm
squaw in exohaugo for the oidor cap to
which I referred, und which she at once
proceeded to make, first measuring the
dome ot my intellect with groat preci
sion.. Tho room was too low to admit
of standing upright, - No stovo or fire-
Elaoo appeared; as a substitute was a
ol towed stone, used aa a lamp, with
seal oil for f uol and moss far a wick.
