Food that is Poisoned
by unclean teeth breeds dyspepsia. Such
at least, is the declared opinion of medical
men. Remedy the evil with purifying,
aromatic Sozodont, which clears away cor
rosive particles which lodgo in the teeth
and produce an acid ferment, that in tinio
destroyes their enamel and ruins them. It
prevents the unspeakable annoyance caused
by defective teeth, if it i used while they
can yet be saved from the destructive ef
fects of tartar and other impurities.

To ridicule tho efforts made by the

Tho total number of business failures
for tlw entire year 1881 throughout tho

This winter will doubtless cause
enough damago to tho streets and side walks
of the city to keep tho city busy all
next summer to repair them. Even tho
paved streets must necessarily suffer great
ly, and ull because nothing can bo dono to
them while they aro covered with soft mud.
This experieuco will doubtless be a profit
able ono to tho city fathers, who will horo
after seo that tho streets and walks in tho
city aro iu a fair condition at tho begin
ning of winter and that material is kept
constantly on hand to make necessary re
pairs even during winter.
Tho remains ot Captain James B. Ful
ton arrived horo from Anna yesterday after
noon on the Illinois Central train. They
wcro accompanied by four Sir Knights and
ten members of tho Blue Lodgo, of Anna,
and by Mrs. Fulton and Mrs. Fraiser. Tho
party was met at the passenger depot here
by eightoen Sir Knights of Cairo Commun
dery and conducted to the homo of Mr.
Alex. Fraiser, near the corner of Fourteenth
street and Washington avenue, from whence,
as will bo seen from a funeral notice else
where in this issue, they will be conveyed
to tho funeral train at tho foot of Four

Chief Myers made two arrests yester
day. One was a man, who evidently had
not sufficient means of support, for he was
hardly able to stand up. He was jailed to
sober up and will probably be tried to-day.
Tho other was a bay horse, the appear
ance of which juBtiGed the conclusion that
he had been badly treatod and was guilty
of tho same offense as tho man aforesaid
but only in a different senso. Tho horse
is of medium height, is very lean and has
a soro back. Ho was in tho act of enter
ing the commission houso of Messrs. N.
B. Thistlowood & Co., being attracted by
tho hay Btorcd there. Ho has been con
fined by the chief and tho owner can
obtain him by paying ..him out of hock.
If the "official" of the Wabash road,
who called upon tho Argus and called in
question the correctness of The Bulletin's
account of tho manner in which the dam
ago was dono to tho trestle works on that
r,oad, is tho ono whom wo have in out
mind's eye, Horatio (and we detect evi
dence in his words as published in the Argus
that ho is), then it was not an official, but
merely an employ of the company, who
gave tho Argus the information alluded
to. And iC tho Argus' account was true,
then the offiicial (?) who called upon that
paper and denied the correctness ot The
Bulletins' account, spoko from mere con
jecture and without a particle of knowledge
of the facts; for tho Argus said that "no
one was near," or "had anything to do
with," tho occurrence. It ,is plain that
either tho Argus' account was not true or
the official (?) is not very good authority.
The Arous mav chooae either horn of tho
n r w -
dilemma, but it can't escape being impared.
At niv o Vloe.k last nichi tho Ohio river
stood at forty-seven feet two inches on the
niiRim ut thin noint. which was a rise dur-
-"- 1 '
ing tho previous twenty-four hours of just
three mcues. vv lien his oorno in uuuu
that at this stage of tho nvor it takes an
immense volume of water to cause such a
rise, tho throo inches assume somo impor-
. . . m 1 J
tance. . During the twenty-tour nourB enu
ing at 1:11 yesterday afternoon the Ohio
river fell two feet six inches at Cincinnati
and seven inches at Nashville, but roso ono
inch at Louisville. At St. Louis the Mis
sissippi roso during the same ponod of time
two inches, which is a fact of some impor
tance to us in view of the height of the Ohio
and the raila temperature oi me norm wesi
generally. But though tho temperature of
tho northwest is almost as high as it is here
there is not much buow or ice which might
bo meltod and help to swell tho mighty
floods. Yet tho mild weather gives Bouie
promiso of rain which would be about as
bad as, if not worse than, snow.
Tho Aldrich and Parslow company
held forth to a fair houso at the Opera
House last light. Tho audience numbered
about six hundred, which was more than
could have been reasonably expected, as
tho streets and the weather wero both
against it, and there had been but
littlo advertising. Tho play, "My Partner,"
was exceedingly well renderod. It is cast
in California, among tho rough mining
population and affords much opportunity
for display of passion and cunning. Tho
parts woro all ably supported by men and
women who understaad them perfectly.
There has not been a bettor pleased audi
ence in the Opera Houso since its erection
and thero probably never will bo. Tho
troupo deserved a full house and would
havo had it for Beveral nights in succession
if tho pooplo wero proporly informed of
its prcseuco hero.
A number of the prominent mnr
chants of the city met at the offico of Mr1
U. W. Miller, commission merchant, on
Ohio levee, Tuesday evening for tho pur
pose of protesting against the unjust dis
crimination "In freight rates made by tho
Illinois Central railroad against tho city.
The meeting was an informal one and only
the first step toward an organization of all
tho principal merchants in the city and a
vigorous protest against tho now too glaring
injustice. It is said that tho rates on grain,
etc.,' from this point south are the same as
those from points above us, which hns
naturally operated very much against tho
commerce of this city. Buyers of thu
south, who have sough business relations
with northern grain dealers and other mer
chants, have found it in some cases more
profitable to draw their supplies from points
above Cairo than from Cairo, and for no
other reason than becauso of the unfairly
proportioned freight rates from, Cairo. It
is likely that another meeting will bo held
soon aud that a committee will bo appoint
ed to confer with tho proper officials of the
railroad company named with a view to
having tho apparent wrong righted.
Paducah Enterprise: "No ono can
form an idea of the extent of tho present
flood without taking a drive on tho out
skirts of the city and viewing the lowhinds,
which are all under water. A drive taken
with Mayor Reed yesterday gave an Enter
prise reporter an opportunity to seo things
as they really aro and learn just how bad
matters stand. Market street is partly in
undated, while Washington, up to Locust,
is covered with water. Tho mills, lumber
yards, etc., along Tennessee river aro sur
rounded and covered whilo the ways are
lost to sight. The Steamer May B. lands
at the intersection of Market and Monroe
streets, while the hack waters extend back
from Locust for Beveral blocks in lower
town and many houses are filled and sur
rounded. Every gravel road leading out
of tho city, with the exception of the Pa
ducah and Lovehtceville, arc impassi bl
owing to the bact water; whilo even the
P. & L. is partially covered by water just
beyond the depot. From Broadway, Bouth,
and from Churchill, west, several Mocks
are covered and the people either driven
from the houses or compelled to go to and
from them in boats. Tho back water covers
almost all tho lowlands in and about the
city, and the gravel pits, both old and new,"
are completly lost to view. The damago
of course will be largo, but it is impos
sible just now to estimate it. The ware
houses below Broadway and east of Market
are getting their share of tho flood, being
The editorial "wo" is a mystery to
many people. The Oil City Derrick gives
tho following reasons: Self preservation is
the first law of nature. It begins at home
like old Mother Charity. There is some
human nature about an editor, public opin
ion to the contrary notwithstanding. An edi
tor thinks too much of his "IV to wear
them in mourning, and thercforo when
speaking of some slab-sided six-footer as a
miserable, red-nesed, pussilanimous, wife
beating snoozer, ho considers it the better
part of valor to drop in an occasional "we."
This creates in the mind of the six-footer
tho impression that tho editorial forco con
sists of a standing army, armed with dread
ful "we"apons. Furthermore, in cases
where tho victim comes around to the of
fico to kill tho writer of any particular
item, it is so pleasant to havo tho guilty
man's identity buried in the obscurity of
tho plural "we." Tho editor-in-chief, the
commercial editor, the city editor, the lo
cal editor, the reporters, the bookkeepers,
compositors, bookbinders, jobbers, press
men, devil, and all tho .delivery boys are
thus placed on a common footing by the
little pronoun "wo" and when the en
raged person looks about him and find.i
how many wives ho would make widows
and how many children lie would
make orphans, by killing off all
included in tho "we" at ono fell swoop, ho
sickens of tho sanguinary undertaking,
turns sadly away, goes to some bar-room,
takes a drink, condemns the paper, proph
esies that it is being run into the ground
and declares that ho will henceforth exert
his political influence to squelch tho sheet.
Tho supreme court of Illinois has sus
tained tho action of Auditor Swigert in re
fusing to authorize tho Hartford Life ami
Annuity Insurance company to transact
business in this state. This refusal was
based upon the fact that the company af
forded no protection to those holding pol
icies in its "safety endowment depart
ment," which is a co-operativo branch con
ducted by this company, for which its as
sets, which are ample for its regular busi
ness, arc in no wiso liable. Tho company
applied to the supremo court for a man
damus to compel tho auditor to issuo to it
licenso to transact business in Illinois. In
denying tho petition Justico Scott stated
that Sec. 1 of tho insurance act, in force
July, 1800, provides that before any life
insurance company goes in operation under
the laws of this state a guarantee capital of
at least $100,000 shall bo paid in money
and invested in tho stocks of tho United
States, or of this state, or of any city or
town iu this stato, estimated at their mark
et value, or in BUuh other stocks and se
curities as may bo approved by tho auditor,
or in mortgages being first liens on real
estato in this state, tho said real estate be
ing worth twice tho amount of tho money
loaned thereon, with an abstract showing a
good and sufficient title, and tho certificate
of two reputable landholders under oath
certifying to tho valuoof said property.
Sec. 37 of tho same act forbids any policy
to be issued by such lifo inBuranco compa
ny until the conditions of The soction just
quoted havo been complied with, whilo
Sec. 3 of thu same- act makes Sec. 1, just
referred to, applicable to all foreign life
insurauce companies that soek to do busi
ness in this stato. It appears from the peti
tion that tlio corporation Becking relief has
a capital of $100,000, but it is not invested
as Sec. 1, hero quoted, provides, so that tho
capital would bo availablo for tho benefit
of tho policyholders iii this state; and that
is a sufficient reason for the action of tho
auditor in refusing to issuo the license.
Tho motion, thercforo, for a peremptory
mandamus will be denied, tho demurrer
sustained, and the judgment given for costs
against the relator.
The funeral of James B.t Fulton, who
died at Anna on Tuesday afternoon, at 2 :10
o'clock p. m. will take place from tho res
idence of Mr. Aljcx. Frasier, near tho corner
of 14th street aud Washington avenue at
ono o'clock this afternoon.
The Sir. Knights of Cairo lodge, of which
deceased was one, will gather at their
asylum on Commercial avenue at 11:45
o'clock this morning, and proceed from
there to the residence of Mr. Alex. Frasier,
where services will be held over tho remains,
by Rev. B.Y. George. The funeral proces
sion will leave the houso at one o'clock this
afternoon for the train, at tho foot of Four
teenth street, and tho remains will be inter
red at Beech Grove with masonic rites.

ABOUT CAPTAIN THOMAS.
A Washington correspondent of the Mas
sac Journal speaks thus of the member of
congress from this district of the legislation
he proposes to affect: "The appointment
of Hon. John R. Thomas, the talantcd and
popular representative of your district, by
speaker Keifer, to the chairmanship of the
Mississippi leveo'aiid improvement commit
tee, gives ;"' it .ii'.tisfaction to all here who
feel an interest in the improvement of tho
Mississippi river the great thoroughfare
of commerce fur its vast nnd immense fer
tile valley. The appointment of Mr. Thomas
to the chairmanship of said committee, was
an eminently fitting and proper ono. In
view of tho fact that the district Mr.
Thomas represents, has a river front of two
hundred miles on the Mississippi ; and on
tho Ohio, its tributary, a hundred and forty
miles, tho consistency of no member of con
gress from the entire west or south, hoa a
greater interest than his, in the improve
ment of that mighty river, the highway for
the commerce of its magnificent valley.
It is well known too that no member of
congress feels a more profound interest in
the improvement of the Mississippi and its
tributaries, or more intelligently and thor
oughly comprehends all questions bearing
upon tho mighty interests his committee
have in charge, than does Mr. Thomas.
Few members, serving their second term
in congress havo made so brilliant record,
attained to thu measure of popularity, and
command tho largo influence in tho house as
does your representative. This popularity
andinflunco,seconded by hisuntireingjand
wisely directed efforts, will assure tho ac
complishment f all that is within rango
of possibility, in furtherance of the great
interests involved in tho improvements of
the Mississippi river. -
Thu peoplo of your district, and of the
entire valley, aro certainly to bo congratu
lated that Mr. Thomas has been designated
by Speaker Keifer, for tho special work of
championing their interests in connection
with obtaining appropriations for tho great
ly needed improvements of tho river
namod. This work certainly could not
havo fallen In abler or safer bands.
mOl'OHKD LKOIHLATION IN WHICH TUB
CAIHO DISTRICT HAS BI'KCIAL INTBKEBT.
Ever alive to tho interests of his imme
diate contingency, Mr. Thomas, your mem

opening this winter, which, when enacted
into laws, as surely will bo tho case at no
distant period, must of necessity prove
immensely advantageous to tho pooplo o

tions of Illinois, adjacent states, and some
of them to tho whole country.

soldiers who served iu the war of the rebel
lion. This bill proposes to do for union
soldiers, that which has been too lom: de
layed, viz: nieto out to them exact justice,
by placing every soldier on precisely tho
same footing as to bounty, which tho
original legislation of congress on tho sub
ject failed to do. If this bill becomes a
a law, and that such will bo tho case, thero
seems to bo but littlo reasonable doubt,
soldiers of tho District represented by Mr.
Thomas, will receive under its provisions,
a sum aggregating quite two hundred
thousand dollars. Another of these bill
provides for the construction of a United l
States Marino Hospital at Cairo, and ap
propriates a hundred thousand dollars for
the purchaso of a proper cite, und the
erection of suitable buildings for use as
such hospital. When thu fact is stated
that Cairo is tho second port in tho United
States, in the number of arrivals and dc
parturcs of steam vessels, mid the add
tional fact Is considered that in round num
