Dear Bulletin :
After long ret, I have
thought a few paragraph from one
who stilt feeli like Cairo ii hia home,
would not be uninteresting to your numer
ous reader, and therefore proceed to dis
course, as follows:
If I were to consult tny own feelings I
should burden this mismo with congratu
lations on Cairo's growth and prosperity,
within tho past 13 months, and good
wishes for her population individually and
collectively; but at your heme readers
know Bioro about your hopos and pros
pects than thu uudorslynod can tell, It will
b more la order to talk alxmt this city
and things pHrUlninir thereto.
rossUily you have heard that Chicago it
just now luffottng from a small pox vialta
tlon, but you have not heard all the truth,
for there is not a ward or a voting precinct
within its bounds that does not realize its
presence; not a school, church or theatre
that is not liable to bo the means of dis
tributing the contageon. The uewspapors,
as UHual, do not tell half the truth about
the presence of this terrible curse, and the
doctors the Lord help them, lie about it
it with as much grace as southern doctors
used to do about Yellow Jack. The
morning papers continue to publish the
locution of new cases, and the evening pa
pers, notably the Daily News, begin to ig
nore its presence altogether. Of course
this is all wrong; but thu seaports have
business, and business nitiHtl flourish if
everybody dies Money does the work
mottt effectually. Thero arc probably
mild and there are dire prophehis of what
the cnBuing summer may bring in the way
of desire, especially if Asiatic Chobro
should make its appearance in America.
It is safe to promise a hogorafrom Chicago
in the calm of its appearance here, behind
which Memphis in its palmiest yellow
fever days would sink into insignificance.
HtiHincHS has fallen off considerably since
the holidays, but as this is not unusual no
one seems discouraged.
The city continues to bo cursed with the
influence of monopolists and houIIchs cor
porations that grind the faces of the poor,
and add to tho rottenness and corruption of
public authority. I could mention a
dozen cases just now where nothing but
bribery prevents the just execution of the
laws, and a healthy competition in many
things in which the people are directly in
terested. The city government never was so lax
in its discharge of duty, and it begins to
look as if tho best part of tho community
did not have money enough to prevent the
continuanco of this state of things, for in
Chicago as in Cairo, it is only a question of
money, when the time comes to choose the
city legislators, executive and judicial olfl
cers. Tbo way things are going now
Carter Harrison apd crew, may hold the
reins as long as they desire. There is not
a saloon, a gambling hell or a house of
prostitution that is not interested in his
retention in office. This may be a hard
thing to say, but there is too much truth in
Improvements continue, and real estate
is contD,'!y in demand. The city is
fetret&hiugout east, west and south, until
no one .can safely predict what a year
may bring forth.
The cable street car line on State street
is nearly complete, and soon the people in
the south siilt will have a taste of San
Francisco street car traveling This sys
tem will doubtless be extended to the
north side, but an elevated railway to the
webt sideis among the certainties of the
future. The lines in all directions from
tho centre of the city are now from five to
eight miles in length, and horse Dower
will soon bo too slow a couuh for this fast
M:irdi;rs, robberies, burglaries and con
fidence games continue to flourish, and no
effce is benefitted but the lawyers and ras
cals. There is a demand for nine police
men, but it is doubtful whether they will
Amusements of all kinds are flourishing
and a dozen first class play-houses are
crowded all tho time with the bright, parti
cular stars with theatrical and operatic
Churches are patronized fairly, fairly
the large congregations are to be found at
Prof. Swing's church (Central Music hall;
and Dr. Thomas' (Ilooley's theatre). The
less hell and punishment for sin, to be
found in sermons here, the more pt.pular
they are; hence tho crowk that worship
at the shrines of these two heretics.
Schools continue to increase in numtiers,
but not in efficrrficy for too much surface
work, and too many independent places of
The tiro department of Chicago is the
most efficient in the world, and it is adout
the on!y department, not excepting gas and
water that deserves special commendation.
It is worth a visit to Chicago to see the
swiftne wjnd efficiency of this branch of
the public service.
Adultcratioa, In what the people eat and
drink, is brought almost to perfection. It
is hard to tell when you have butter, cheese,
coffee, tea, spice, bread or anything elM
subject to adulteration, whether you have
the genuino article, or some villainous
compound, manufactured to put money in
pockets of th inventors.
The newspapers continue to flourish, and
all torts of newspapers as that; bat es
pecially the dailiea-the Tribune, the Timet
and the Evening Journal hold on tbe,eveo
tenor of their way, but the Inter-Ocean, the
New and tho Herald are having lots of
fun. The Herald, you must know, has
supplanted the I.-O. In the affection of
Gun. Logan, and proposes to coo tribute to
his prosperity in the race tat the presi
dency. Nbtuo, of the l.-O, wanted to sue
cd W. Henry Smith, as a collector of this
port, bnt Logan prevented the appointment
ThaNmlsulso mad, becaoseNUon did
not got the appointment, is is that mat it
''.,;jV.-'Vvwf v:,,V, .,'.;..;..,rvX..,".;!
would have swallowed the I.-O., and boen
better prepared to fight the Herald, which
rapidly undermining its morning
circulation. The News Is a cuerrilia
and lives on sensation. How
ever, the light continues with tho
Herald on top By the way the Herald has
been sued for $20,000 damages by Scovillo,
Oultoau's attorney because it bus chanted
him with being crooked in financial mat
ters in Chicago Much good it will do , him.
But this letter is too long already, and
yet I could string out many more pages
especially in regard to Cairoitos here and
Isewhore. I would like to tell you of
Mon Harroll, Dan Munn, Pat Pope, Jewett
Wilcox, tho Mackeys, the Stools, Jim Nagel,
John Oswold and others thus I could name,
but must couie to a halt with tho best
wiHhcs for The Bulletin and its readors
and all my Cairo friends and acquaintances.
May they live a hundred years.

Once, when somewhat under tho in
flurnen of drink, a certain citizen if
Windham, Conn., wandered off into tho
fields ami went to sleep. On rising ho
forgot to put on his old cocked Tint.
Some boys found it, and took it to him,
thinking to cover him with confusion.
"In which lot did you find It?
he inuuired, blandly. -"In Mr.
'In Mr. White's pasture, near the barn."
'Well, boys, go tako it right buck; Hint
Is my place to keep it."
Tho religious ceremonies of the Egyp
tians were preceded bv abstfitenre, and
the sacrifice were allowed neither ani

A Very Common Sort of Crariness.
Paul Morpby, once tho greatest chesg
player of this country, n said to be in
sane at New Orleans. His insanity is
of a harmless nature. Ho is well oil'
financially, but is harassed by tho idea
that he will be financially ruined link's
be can borrow 'JOO. Ho goes nliout
borrowing two hundred dtdlars, day
after day. His friend always let him
have the money, which seems to relievo
his mind for a time. This hallucination
is very common. Wo know men that
have a hallucination that if they cannot
borrow fifty cents or a dollar they will
m out of money, and can't buy any
whisky. They do .nothing but try to
borrow money. Occasionally thy go
down stairs head first, with their coat
tails filled with IkmUs, but on tho aver
age they get enough to live on, during

Sir: I have advised many ladies to try
your "Favorite Prescription" and never
see it fail tn do more than you advertise.
Yours truly, Mm. A. M. Kansix
141 Kates street, Indianapolis, Ind.
Setting fence Posta.
It is believed by m:'iiy that posts set
"tap end down," or the reverse of tho
position in which the tree, grew, will last
much longer than when si t, "top rnd
up." Prof. W. J. H.'aJ. of the Michigan
agricultural college, has inado somo rx
perimonUto U'st the value of this npin
ion. He says : "In the spring of 179
I selnctd spasorifd dirks thrcsi feet
long. These were split in two, aud cut
in two, making four pieces of each.
One set was placed in well-drained sand,
thu other in clay Mil. In every caso
two pieces were set aid by side, with
earth between, one as it stood in the
tree, the ntherrnversrd. I tried thirteen
kinds of timber. Some of these wen
young wood with the hark on. All con
tained some hard wood. Thosf grow
ing on sandy land have just been exam
ined. In the cas of the beach, sugar
maple, iron-wood, black ash, and Mack
cherry, the piece reversed, or placed
"top end down" was somewhat most
decayed. In the case of red maple,
American elm, butternut, and ml elm,
the reversed piece was a trillo tho
soundest. In the cas of bass wood,
white a.sh, whit oak. and bine ab, there
was no perceptible difference. I Infer
that w here one piece decayed more than
th other, It wm caused by some trifling
diftVnno In the sticks. The freshly
sawed ends In each ca.se wr placed
upprmoHt, and cams an Inch or so
above the around.
Tot so, middle aged, or old men, suf
fering from nervous debility and kindred
wcakneuet, should send two stump for
Urge treaties, firing successful treatment.
