EMMA ABBOTT IN CAIRO.
Sinco ita opening audience the Cairo
opera house has not been occupied by so
large, bo fashionable, bo refined and cultur
ed and hacdsono &a ftUdlenoe as greeted
the Emma Abbot! troupo last night. It
was composed of not only the cream of
this community, but of fivo or six other
communities around about Cairo, and it was
e brillant throng. The parquet and parquet

hundred '' people present, all eair

The curtain roso about eight
o'clock, and when Miss Abbott appeared
upon tho stage, she was, instinctively, it
may bo said, rccognirod and greeted by a
prolonged burst of applaud, which slio ac
knowledged gracefully. She was tho cen
tre of attraction all through tho perform
ance, and moved the audienco with every
word and note. That the audience was
impressed in her favor at first Bight waa
manifest, and that it grew in admiration of
her as the play progressed, became more
evidont with every rise and fall of the cur
tain. Miss Abbott was in capital voico last
nigljt. Iler singing throughout was excel
lent, but her rendition of tho "Last Rose of
Summer" must bo pronounced, by all pres
ent, tho sweetest, tho most artistic, the
most perfect they ever heard. And if tho
wild applause, which followed every verso,
and which did not cease until the last verse
had been ropeated, may be taken as tho
verdict of the audienco, Miss Abbott cer
tainly had reason to feel proud. She gavo
t in a voice of the utmost purity and fresh
ness, and without a catch or a flaw in a
eingle note; now soft as the dreamy tones of
an ajolean harp, and then with a fulness,
roundness and power that surprised tlie ear
as it Bwelled to the fullest volume and then
fell away to a mere echo that lingered and
dwelt and died away, leaving its impress on
the senses which will remain with the listen
er as long as the memory of tho Bingcr re
mains. Hut rendition of tho song was
highly dramatic, her face, which but a mo
ment before was beaming with the spirit of
coquetry and deep humor, boro a look of
deepest sadness and Borrow befitting the
beautiful theme struggling in her breast
and flowing to her hps in song. The au
dience will sever forget the impressions
made upou it by that song

Other members of tho company also de

superiors among those now inoperatic roles.

MATTER! AND THINGS-CONSIDER
ED FROM A CACIIBBASIS.
I am inspired te have a chat with some
body this bright delicious morning whilo
tbe birds flit about singing like May, and
tho balmy breezo blows across tho fresh
green fields and rustles through the whito
oak leaves that cling to their branches all
winter. So I lay aside my carpet balls for
my pen ; you should know that this is the
season when good rustic housewives begin
to bco tho end of thoir rag bags and ponder
the questions: Shall tho now carpet bo
striped, or a "hit-and-miss"!
What is tho matter with the world? is it
growing more wicked? I sometimes won
dor if we. would not bo better oft' with
fewer schools and colleges, for no very ig
norant mind could havo conceived such a
diabolical weapon and its uso, as tho iron
collar, lately invontod by a German student
and so minutely described in tho papers.
If I were the judgo, that collar should be
a vcritablo boomerang to its inventor. It
should come back with unerring nim and
unhesitating swiftness upon his neck.
When he was extinguished 1 should find
uso for it around tho mWorablo neck of his
successful imitator this side of tho water.

We, of Pulaski county, do not propose
putting down our real estate . prices on ac
count of the scarcity of corn sndjhay. The
last summer b drouth waa not from anv lo
cal cause, and did not injuro the quality of
ur boiI in tho least. Farmers, who neg
lected to garner what small lotB of hay and
fodder they mitrht. arel suffering
from thp short crops, many of their horses
are "on the lift" and some have died for
lack of feed, which will make it extremely
difficult to mako good crops next season.
But if the rain and sun are given us in the
right proportions from' now on, the provi
