One advantage, which Cairo has over
the cities and towns above her along the
Ohio and Mississippi rivers banks, is that
all the water from both great rivers and all
their branches is bound to come right by

as much as the average school-boy dues the

CAIRO BULLETIN: TUESDAY
1,1 1 ; 5
On Thursday of last week a family
uamed Anderson, consisting of husband,
wife And two children, was taken into St.
Mary's Infirmary through private charity,
all but the husband being sick. On Fri
day one of the children died, and on Sit
urday the mother died also, leaving only
one child and the husband, the former
being still in the hospital under medical
treatment. The family had been living in
the Clark block, on Ohio leveo, in the ut
most poverty, though the husband has
been doing all manner of work since he
has been here. But with his entire family
sick, it was naturally a difficult matter to
earn enough money to bear tho expense of
maintaining and caring for them. He ftp
plied, he says, to Dr. Wood for help from
the county, but was refused. There are a
number of other peoplo in tho same place
in a like state of destitution, who need help
from somewhere. There are also others in
oilier parts of the city, who also need as
sistance. It is desirable, therefore, that
something bo done immediately for tho re
lief of these poor people. The county
should be made to do what it can, and the
good people of the city should put their
heads together anil devise somo means for
creating a private poor fund. Let us have
the charity conceit as soon as possible.
With her usual uncertainty and dread
of a positive assertion in matters of any
importance, Grandmother Argus of Satur
day 6ays: "If we are not much niistikeu."
Cairo men had control of the Cairo and St.
Louis road at the time it was changed from
a standard to a narraw guage. TrtE Bul
letin fails to see that this circumstance
alters tho state of the cae iu the least.
The fact remains that the people expected
an J paid for a standard guge road and
got a narrow guage road, without any re
turn of funds; and the fact also remains,
that the railroad company, which wss com
posed in great part of, and controlled by,
the same bloated foreign boud-hi!deTs who
compose and cantrol it to day, giiosd in
the same proportion as the people of Ciro
lost, by the transaction. Almost tver sbce
its incorporation, the Cairo and St. Lojis
road has been manipulated l-v the Amster
dam sharks, who hav, at every turn ia t'.e
affairs of the road, made thousands, asi
swindled the Email stock and boad-b i ie-s
out of their share in the road. In spite of
all that can be said by the innocent '.! or
gan of these Amsterdam paupers, the fact
remains that the people of Cairo have Uen
swindled enough by. and have donated
enough to, the Cai o and St. Lmis road,
and this is just as good a time s any to
call a halt. When it cmies tocbwng le
tween the interests of the tax-ridden peo
ple f Cairo and th iso of a foreign band
of millionaire railroad manipulators. The
Bulletin has neither the time nor the dis
position to hunt up teehVicalities of which
to build a fort for the latter. In the mat
ter under discussion, The Bulletin pre
fers to side with the people of Cairo as
against the foreign shurks.
Th k Bulletin acknowledges the re
ceipt of a pamphlet, eniitled "Guide-Posts
on Immortal Hoads," by Mrs. Jacob Mar
tin, of this city. Tho pamphlet contains
seventy four pages printed in very readable
type. The matter treats principally of
Spiritualism asja positive proof of a future
life. The writer questions the authority of
the Christian Bible upon this point, civing
many quotations from that book, both con
tradicting and ailinuitig the existence of
a spirit world, and then relates numerous
experiences of the authoruss' own with
Buuie of the noted mediums of this day.
The book gives evidence of much research
nnd thought, is written iu Mrs. Martin's
usual, attractive style, and is interesting
reading throughout. In tiie concluding
chapter Mrs. Martin relates the particulars
of a seauce she had with Mrs. O. A. Bishop,
wno was controlled by a spirit knoin as
H.'dhaml, an old Indian chief, who "said
from the beginning of President Garfield's
illness," says tho 'authoress, "Unit
he could not recover; but
wo hoped ugainst this sad prediction. We,
with tho rest of tlu world, watched and
waited and hoped. The suffering, bidding
victim lingered weary rccks, wearing his
precious life away because of an assassin's
cruel deed. Suspense and sorrow drooped
thu souls of his dear wife and children, and
the heart of the republic ached in sympathy
with them. Business im pended, churches
opet.cd to tho worshipful, and, in the self
same hour, and with one tone, the bells of
this great continent reminded all of prayer.
Tho pious and tho worldly minds, tho par
son and tho statesman, thu policitian and
tho toiler of tho soil, the w hite and colored
man, joined in the plea; and in thuir earnest
supplications they forgot all selfish strife.
Our wisest and best leaders felt how hard
tho blow, ifourchief magistrate should be
cut down; nnd many turned to God in hope
ami faith, and Baying: "Wilt Thou iu
mercy sparo our President?" Tho great
voice of our Union fifty millions strong
rose in one anthem, wafting that almost
universal prayer. Surely, if Omnipotence
were ever lenient to mankind, it must be in
so good a cause. If prayer were ever heard,
it seemed that this one, which besieged tho
very heaven, would movo them unto pity.
Upon her knees our weeping country bow
cd, her soul uplifted to her God, while sho
waited His reply to her sincere appeal. She
heard It In tho slow nnd solemn tolls of
mullled bells, and funeral dirgo. She raised
her tearful eyes, and saw tho answer In tho
clouds of black which draped tho silent
streets;tho Slars'and Stripes half mast, nnd
ooped with crape; tho linos of jet upon
tho daily press; tho, old and new world in
each oehcr's arms, wiping ench other's
tears; mid scattering flowers together on a
new-made grave. This was tho answer to
tho Christians' prayer."

A very heavy trost is reported to be on
its way to this part of the country from tho
far northwest. The temperature at various
places there Iihs experienced a heavy fall,
at Bismarck to eleven decrees below
zero. It is thought that
this blizzord will entirely neutralize tho
effect of the late refreshing showers in tho
valleys of the great rivers, which would be
matter for regret. The Mississippi river
is so low at this point tint several steam
boats have recently run aground, just op
posite tho city, and sustained more or less
serious injury; a man in it skui
attempted to cross to . Missouri
the other day, but touched bottom
before the. got half way across ami turned
back; and several ladies in the city aro ac
tually put to much trouble and expense to
keep their canary birds well supplied
For the benefit of those of our read-
era who are not aware of the fact, we will
say that it rained ) esterday it rained right
out in the street, too. Toe rain was a per
fect God-send it was nothing short "of a
positive prjof cf the efficacy of prayer.
For weeks pa-t the dust in the city has
been almost a complete obstruction to
driving in the boulevards, it has certainly
interfered very much with the
plevure thereof. At every gust of wind
grett cloud? of sifted earth deluged the citv,
blinded and chr ked people snd Soiled ev-
ervtiiim? in and out of d.ojis. Praying for

Great fear exists that the ii.se now coining

has set in and add to the di-aster that over
whelms the inundated sections. At Helena,

During his late vist lure Mid while in
consultation with the council committee,
Col. Humil.on, of tin: St. Louis nnd Cairo
railroad company (formerly the Cairo and
St. Louis railroad company), said, in tub
stonce. that the company ha 1 expected ns n
matter of course, that it would be permit
tee! to lay its track over the city's streets
without tiny question that it could push
riybt into Cairo unhindered, just as riil
road companies arc in the habit of doing
in little country tow ns where the people do
not know how to help themselves or how
to guard their own interests but that the
company had "made a mistake in the char
acter of the town !imo." It is evident that
as the company had ridden over Cairo so
often, and had seen other company's do
likewise, it had come to the conclusion
that Cairo was inhabited by a lot of simple
tons, with neither energy nor sense enough
to Impose miy conditi ms upon tho cam
puny for an important privilege, nnd the
manifestation of a manly spirit of self in
terest by the council's joint committee
actually took tho company by surprii-c.
There are now in St. Mary's Infirmary
six patients who are kept there nt the ex
pense of tho county and of private charity.
One is a negro boy, about fourteen y ars of
age, who returned from the state rofotm
school about three weeks ago. Ho was sent
there from here in a healthy condition, and
he comes back to us tilllicted with consump
tion. Another is the li'tbj child of tho
woman And' ison, who died in the hospital
last Saturday as stated elsewhere. It is
dangerously sick. Another is the man
Gatewood, who was injured by the Illinois
Central railroad, through tho nettlect of one
of the employes of the road. Ho is being
kept there at the expense of the county; he
is not n tit subj.'ct for hospital, ho belongs
on I ho poor farm, and should bo sent there
ns soon as possible. Still another is a man,
named CHinbell, who is suffering with
Bright 'a disease, but hardly in a mensuro to
necessitate his being kept any longer in tho
hospital at public expense. Ho ond Gate

need of hospital treatment, than they are

whoso leg was cut off by sn Illinois Central
train some timo ago.
Tho n'Bo reported iu tho Mississippi
river at St. Louis by the signal service bul
letin yesterday afternoon was eight and s
half feet during the previous twenty-four
hours. This souuds bigger Hihu it really
is. Tho river has been very low and very
narrow at St. Louis and such a rise there
would not make over one foot or less at
this point. Indeed it is doubtful if a ten
foot rise at St. Louis, at tho present narrow
state of the river there would make a foot
here, because by the timo the rise reached
Cairo, it would have scattered over a vast
area of country. Thoi iso in tho Ohio at
all points north is considerable and wo can
not help but feel some npprenslon for the
pesple living along tho banks of the great
Hoods ubovo and below Cairo. As for
Cairo, she has as yet suffered little or not ut
all from tho rivers. She can,
even at tin? present high
stagj of the rivers here, stand rive feet
more of water on either levee, arid this she
will never get, even if the frost does not
have- the effect of checking the rise. While
Cairo looks with teirful, pitying eye upon
the poor people above and beljw here, who
have either already been driven out of tltir
homes in utter destitution by the raging
floods, or stand inimmient danger of being
so she has reason to congratulate herselfupon
her own tutire safety and entire freedom
so fur from any suffering resulting from
the high rivers. Before the rivers can
climb over Cairo's immense levees, they
must and will carry deatlt and destruction
to millions of homes both above and below
her, and "don't you forget ii."

The secretary of war has sent to the sen
ate a report of Cupt, O. II. Ernst on Fish
b.nd in the Missis.-ippi river, near Fort
Chdi trcs. The report says that tho amount
of land destroyed attli.it point during tho
last seven years has been about 52 J aerosol
about 75 acres per year. Tin: amount de
stroyed during the last two years ha been
about 180 acres. Eitiniating the valuu of
the land at "foi) per acre, and taking the
more recent r ite of annual destruction, tho
annual loss is nbout f 1,5 JO. The obvious
means to prevent this loss is to stre ngthen
the bank by a revetment. An efficient
revetment includes a continuous mattress,
120 feet wide, laid nt the foot of the slope
below low-water mark, nbovu which the
bink is to be gradeel to aeullo slope and
covered with a layer one loot thick of bro
ken stone up Ho a height of 10 feet above
low-water in n k and above that level to be
planted with willows. Tho cost of such
revetment is now estimated at about $ 10
per running foot, though it is possible that
as the men are trained and become more ex
port the cost may bo reduced. The total
length of bunk requiring- protection
from Goodman' l.ndlng to Pen
itentiary point, Is 111,10'! feet.
TIIR TOTAL COST
Of protecting Fish bend would bo 11)1,000.
Tho nnnual interest upon this sum at 4 per
cent, is $ 7,(50(1 40, while the present nnnual
loss from tho destruction of land Is but f t,
To Insure permanent benefit tho direction
of tho approach of tho c.linnnul must bo fix
ed, and this Involves the systematic Improve
ment oi tho river above. While thu pro
tectlon of Fish boud at this timo would,
without doubt, bo of benefit to navigation
for tho timo being, the work should not bo
undertaken in tho interest of navigation
until it shall be known with certainty
where tho bank of the river iu this vicinity
is to bo in the future. . The general im
provement of tho river now prcgrossitig
down stream from St. Louis will rench a
point about 15 miles above Fish' bond dur
ing the coming year. Its rato of advanco
being dependent upon the amount of future
appropriations, it is uncertain when this lo
cality will be reached. It is therefore con
cluded that the protection of Fmh bend at
this time will be a work for tho protection
of hind, and that tho Ix-ncflMo commerce
to bo derived fiom it will be insignificant.
