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

Tho funeral of Mr. James B. Fulton
took placo yesterday afternoon. The ro
mains had lain in state at the residenco of
Mr. Alex. Frazier since tho evening of tho
previous day, and many of tho friends of
the deceased visitod the houso to take a
last view of him. A little after twclvo
o'clock yesterday the Knights Tomplarof
Cairo Commandery, wearing their uniforms
and sabers, and being preceded by a cor
net band, left their asylum on Commercial
avenue for Mr. Frazicr's residenco, whore a
number ot citizens had already preceded
them; and there sorviccs wore lurid over tbo
remains by Rev. B. Y. George A little
after ono o'clock tho coffin, in charge of
eignt pall bearers, was brought forth and
placed In the hearse, which moved slowly
up Fourteenth street, followed by carriages
containing Homo of tho chief mournors.
The Knights Tomplar, followed by relatives
of tho decoasod and citizens, proceeded to
the train at tho foot of Fourteenth street, to
the mournful muaic of tho band. ,Thore'
mains wero bunnd at Booch grovo accord
ing to the boautiful and very impressive cer

What Cuiro needs nearly as much as
anything clao is paint. Three and tour and
five story brick houses is not all that is ro
quired to make a city. The colorless
sameness of the buildings on some of tho
streets has a spiritless effect. Take a por
tion of Commercial avenue, with its com
mercial palaces of every description, wher
tho store fronts aro in bright colors, gaudy
in some respects if you pleaso, but it has
a lively effect ; it attracts the stranger's ad
miring attention, exciting in him hia doro
mant lovo for the beautiful and causes
him to go, involuntary almost, into ono or
all of the beautiful establishments, in ex
pectation of receiving a still moro agree
able surprise- within. And he is seldom
disappointed, for these stores aro all filled
with things beautiful and useful. But
compare with these stores, somo of tho busi
ness houses on other portions of the avenuo
and of tho city, Ohio leveo for instance, and
it is like comparing the many and bright
colored butterflies, in a garden of full
blown flowers, to an old gray grass hopper,
in a patch of withered cuckloburrs. Why
not beautify tho front of Ohio levee busi
ness bouses and others clsowhcre in the
city in a manner that would make them
the pride of tho city generally! Wi;y not
array all store fronts, and all other houses
in the city that now havo an ungainly ap
pearance, in a gay new dress during the
coming spring aud thus give employment
and encouragement to tho several artistic
painters in tho city and give visitors a good
impression of tho town? A fow, irregularly
dotted hero and there, won't do; that would
give the ctty an idiotic dye-houso appear
ance. But all, painted either in designs
after Eeastlake, the Egyptain, Moresque,
Pompeiian, Arabesque, or Florentine, would
give Cairo a world-wide name and rqo

being deprived of his monopoly of the beau

Tho Illinois Central railroad has
abandoned its outside Ohio levee track for
general uso because the river has, iu places,
bo far washed away the bed from under it
as to make tho running of trains upon it
dangerous. At present no one but the
Illinois Central railroad company suffers
from this washing process which has been
going on now for several years. The
Bulletin called attention to tho mutter
last year, when the river was high and was
encroaching upon the track of the company,
but The Bulletin's warning was nnt
heeded and tho result is what every suno
man saw it would be, that tho Illinois Cen
tral company must either abandon tho
track entirely, or that it must Bpcnd much
moro for repairs than it would havo had to
do last yoar. So far as the city is concerned,
there is not a particlo of danger. Even
though nothing wero done to tho, levee
this year or next year, there would be no
danger to tho city. But the Illinois Cen
tral railroad company might, by that timo,
bo entirely cut off from its depots and
ware-houses in tho lower portion of tho
citv. But whether or not thero
is danger to tho city now,
or whether or not there will bo dan
ger to the city in a year from now, by
reason of this failure to immediately repair
tho constantly increasing damage, is not so
much the question at present as, "whether
or not it is wise for the city to stand idly
by, see ono cubic yard of dirt and gravel
after another slowly carried away from tho
levee, while thoso whose lawful duty it is
to prevent it aro as dumb and inactive as a
Baltimore oyster." That somebody or
other must do something or other at somo
timo or other about this littlo wash will
perhaps, bo denied by no one; and that the
sooner something is done tho better is
equally self-evident to all. Neglected
further, the little waves will continuo to-
splash against the embankment, littlo part
icles of earth will continuo to bo steadily
removed and swept out into the river; the
little crevice will continuo to grow yoar
after year and, ultimately, while great
wealthy corporations and companies aro in
dispute as to whoso duty it is to throw a
handful of earth and gravol into tho littlo
crevice, tho waves will, littlo by littlo, work
their way through the embankment and
Bwoop in upon the town. Something ought
to bo done by somebody uow, and if thoso
whose duty it is under the law will not do
it, then, perhaps, upon the principlo that
self-preservation is tho first law of naturo,
tho city had butter do it at tho cxpenso of
such party and recover tho cost of such re
pairs by duo process of law. But it is not
likely that tho city will do this; tho city
does not suffer and will not sulfur directly
for somo timo to come, even though nothing
be done. Tho Illinois Central railroad
company is, and will bo for several years to
como, tho only direct sufferer.

STUDENTS OF MELODY AND HAR

al Society's musical convention at tho Pres

The bravery and determination of tho sixty
or seventy ladies and gentlemen, who,
minding neither inclement weather, mud,
bad walks, darkness, cold ; foregoing the
attractions of pleasant firesides at home
and of other places of noblo amusement
overcoming all theso and also their own in
clinations and tho importunities of friends,
gather every night for two consecutive
weeks to worship at the Flixine of the God
of music, certainly challenges the admira

CAPTAIN FULTON'S FALL.
Tho Anna Farmer and Fruit Grower of
Wednesday gives tho following account of
tho terrible fall at tho Anna insane asylum
on Tuesday, which resulted the death of
Capt. James F. Fulton :
"Captain Fulton has just fallen down on
elevator in tho north wing aud been klllod."
Tho abovo words camo over tho tolephono
lino Tuesday afternoon at 2:10, and were
uttered in a shocked tone by Mr. Ed. A.
Finch, chiof clerk of the hospital of tho in
sane at this place. We could not havo been
moro astonished, for but a few hours pre
viously Capt. Fulton, jovial and lively ns
usual, was in town, greeting ono and all
his friends in his energetic manner.
Liko lightning tho nows of tho horrible
accident flow over the country, and every
body expressed thoir Borrow, for Capt. Ful

over since it started up, in tho fall of 1873,
and was a general favorite with everybody.
occurrod in tho north wing of tho hospital,
in an elevator way used for elevating food
to tho dining rooms. Capt. Fulton, with
Mr. W. II. Smith, an assistant, was on tho
fourth floor of tho hospital for tho purpose
of repairing tho elevator, which had boon
lowered so that tho top, which is covered,
was about even with tho floor upon which
they woro standing. A wire cablo attached
to tho top of the elevator is used for elevat
ing purposes, and runs over a pulley at tho
top of tho elevator way, and down a groovo,
and at tho end a largo iron weight, Weigh'
ing something over a hundred pounds, is at
tached. A brake regulates tho speed of tho
elevator. Capt. Fulton stopped upon
the top of tho elevator, tolling hia assistant
to hand him a lantern, and was holdiug to
tho cablo with ono hand, waiting for tho
lantern, when,' like a flash, tho elevator
descended to the basement below, a distance
of probably sixty or seventy feet. Mr.
Smith was Btruck with horror and jumped
to tho brake rope, but could do no good.
Capt. Fulton being a largo man, it Is a
matter of coujocturo as to whether or not
tho fall alonu would havo proven fatal,
but atanyrato tho'sudden stop of tho ele

tho great iron weight being jerked out of

from the cable as it reuched the top and

Dr. Wurdner, superintendent, was absent
on business at tho time of tho accident.
Relatives and friends of tho deceased wero
informed by telegraph of the accident, and
arrived as soon as possible afterwards.
Tho following masons accompanied the
corpse to Cairo, on Wednesday, as an escort;

Washington, Jan. 2.1. "Guilty as in
dicted," said one by ono each of the twelve
men who for 73 days havo been sit
ting in-judgment upon (Jie president's as
sasMn. "My blood be upon tho heads of
that jury; God will avenge this outrage;
that's my answer," shouted Guitcau for tho
last time from the dock.
It wos a wild, weird historical scene. Tho
day had been one of unusual irritation in
tho court room. Guitcau, foul-mouthed,
insolent, defiant, had with greater persist
ence than UHual interfered to break the
force of Judge Porter's closing argument,
and the vocabulary of vituperation of this
"chosen man of God" had been : "You are
a hypocrite; you are a reprobate; you arc an
infernal scoundrel; you arc a liar, Porter,
and don't you forget it." But the meshes
of tho law woro being closed about the
blasphemer, and at ten minutes past three
o'clock Judge Porter closed his remarkable
speech. To within ten minutes of tho end
of it Guiteau had been
INCESSANT IN II1S INTEKUITXION9,
but asPciter bejjan bis eloquent peroration
with tho words, "Tho time has come when
I must close," fear seemed to paralyze the
tongue that cast forth so much foulness.
The checks of the assassin began to blanche,
his eyes were riveted upon tho jury box,
his hands quivered and he listoned.with tho
rest in the painful silence of that court
room to the great forensic orator's closing
words. Judge Porter, with a gracious bow
to the court and jury, took his scat, and sil
ence even more impressive camo over tho
audience that was densely packed through
out that dingy court room. The closing
arguments of Judge porter's speech had set
forth in clearer light thnn it had bcn pre
sented before the cool deliberation of the
murderer and the evidence of the prisoner's
responsibility for the act.
At 3:M Judge Cox began to deliver his
charge to tho jury, which occupied about
half an hour, and then tho jury was left to
its own deliberations,
After the jury hud been out about twenty
minutes, recess.was taken until 5 :37 o'clock.
Many of tho audience who had virtually
been iinprisioned einco 9:30 in the morning
availed themselves of tho opportunity of
obtaining air and lunch. The prisoner at
his request, had been ullowed soon after the
jury left the court room to retire to a littlo
room he has occupied siiKo tho trial began
as a waiting room during recess. Byforo
leaving the court-room ho evinced consider
able nervousness, but on getting away to
comparative seclusion his usual composure
and assurance soon returned, lie sent out
for somo apples, with which ho treated his
attendants, meanwhile chatting familiarly
and good natu redly.
Ho was asked what ho thought the jury
would do, and replied, "I think they will
acquit mo or disagree, don't you?"
Within ten minutes after recess had been
taken tho jury called to tho bailiff in wait
ing that they wero
READY WITH Til Kill VERDICT.
They wore iu formed recesss had been
taken and Judgo Jox had loft the court
room, bo they remained in their room until
Judgo Cox soon afterward took his seat.
Tho crier cnllo 1 order and tho jury at 5:35

was hushed save tho voice of, tho clerk as
ho propounded to tho foreman the usual
inquiry. Clear and distinct came tho reply :

With equal distinctiveness came tho ro-

have richly merited the thanks of your
countrymen, and I fool assured you will
