EDITED IN TUK INTEREST OF THE CAIRO
The objection frequently urged, when
the library flmt opened, to its position upon
the levee, and in the second atory, which
could be readied only by a lone flight of
Htairs, was entirely lost sight of laat week.
Every ono interested iu the good works of
thejlibrary rejoiced that its valuablo posses
sions were bo far above high water mark,
and the librarians and board of trustees
were agrseably relieved that there was no
"moving" to be done in that quarter.
That the library was closed "on the 25th
of February was entirely an accident, aud
owing to the fact that the librarian was
unavoidably detained, the assistant librar
ian without a key, and tho janitors under
a mistake about keeping the door open,
there was no panic or highwatcr at the
Books that should have been returned
that day, will be croditud another week.
A DCTV TO Gilt LB.
The poorest girls ,in the world are those
who have never been taught to work. Tliere
are thousands of them. Rich parents have 1
petted them. They have been tauht to
despise labor and depend upon others for a
living and are perfectly helpless. If mis
fortune comes upon their friends, us it often
does, their case is hopeless. The most for
lorn women on earth belong .to this class.
It belongs to parents to protect their daugh
ters from this deplorable condition. They
do them a great wrong if they neglect it.
Every daughter ought to bo taught to make
her own living. The rich as well as the
poor require this training. Tho wheel of
fortune rolls swiftly around the rich are
very likely to become poor and tho poor
rich. Skill to labor is no disadvantage to
the rich, indispensible to the poor. Well-to-do
parents must educate their children
to work. No reform is more imperative
than this. Ex.
A few months ago some masculine be
liever in the doctrine of woman's inferiority
declared in words touched with bittentess
and (rail, that women are a failure in jour
nalism. Still the journalistic work of
women continues to be acceptable to news
papers and readers. Nearly every leading
newspaper in the United States numbers
one or more women on its stall of editors
or correspondents. The leading editorial
writers in all of, the departments of the
Philadelphia Public Ledger are women.
Miss Kate Field and Mrs. Louise Chandler
Moulton have been engaged tfor Judge A
W. Tourgee's new literary weekly, The
Continent. Miss Nellie M. Hutchinson has
been connected with tho New' York . Tri
bune for over ten years, and some of the
best editorials in that paper arc from her
The Indianapolis Dully Sentinel has in
its Sunday edition a whole page devoted to
most entertaining department, called
"Woman's World" edited by Florence M.
Adkinson in an able and successful man
ner. In tho issue of February 12th is a
complimentary notice of tho efforts of the
Woman's Club and Library Association of
Cairo, Illinois, to establish a free public
library and reading room. Almost every
paper of note has a department edited by,
and in the interest of women, and such
columns are usually found to be the spiciest,
most valuable and entertaining tho paper
contains. Tub ' Cairo Bulletin is in
cluded in this class, we understand.
The wives of a number of leading Gor
man citizens of New York have inaugu
rated a movitnent looking to the importa
tion ol Austrian and German servant girls.
They say that many young women in the
Fatherland tind it difficult to earn an hon
est livlihood, owing to the dull state of
trade and commerce, but lack the means
with which to emigrate to America. The
object of tho society is to istablish agencies
which will care fortffe girls, forward them
from one point to another, and arrange for
the occau pa8sngc. On reaching New
York they will be received into a home,
where they will remain a few weeks and
learn something of American house-keeping.
Frances Hodson Burnett is tho literary
lion of Washington. She has a pretty lit
tle house where she receives Tuesdays and
Tuesday evenings. She has a coterie in
her own particular dun np stairs. She
looks very pretty, standing in the center of
her cozy, low-ceiled drawing-room, a wood
fire blazing on the hearth, and herself iu a
pretty pale gown, receiving with a natural
grace and cordiality that is very captivat
ing. For the first timo in its brief but bril
liant hiBtory, tho Woman's Club and Li
brary Association will omit the celebration
of ita anniversary. Every preparation has
boon made for tho usual interesting pro
gramme on that occasion but for obvious
reasons it Is finally decided that it bad
better bo omitted. Tho Venetian aspect of
our city, is quite enough to account for
dearth qf amusements at this watery period
of our history.
To the philosophizing feminim) mind,
which hat made a profounds study 1 of the
genua, man, It la evident that thcro ara
me very curious inconsistencies to be
found in the chnracter of that individual.
For instance, a man who desires his wife to
mako-a brilliant appearance in society, and
enjoys seeing her elegantly dressed, cheer
fully paying large bills, will not give her a
cent of ready money wherewith she may
be able to feel independent and at liberty
to make selections and purchases where
she pleases. With profeaedly, every con
fidence in her integrity and good judg
ment in other things, ho treats her like a
child, and below her hired ser-
vauts, who have their wages paid
them regularly "because a woman doesn't
know how to take care of money." It is not
surprising that a high-spirited woman, is
sometimes tempted to narrow and ignoble
uction, or open rebellion uuder such treat
ment. Again : tho most generous and liber
al "provider," in his family, one who buys
always more thau is needed, and can be
used, and which often goes to waste, will
not allow his wife to do the marketing, "be
cause a woman does not know anything
about making a bargain. If Buch a man
would mako the experiment, honestly and
fairly, in nine cases out of ten, he would
find his family living just as well, and many
a dollar saved, 'which would bo invested in
Bomo comfort for the home, or laid
by for some special emergency.
Still another peculiar phase is that which
ridicules or looks with contempt upon tho
various tasteful adornments of the home, in
which tho wifo delights, and which help to
brighten her monotonous lite. ' Stuff" and
"rubbish" are the epithets applied to these,
while the fault-finder knows very well in
his secret soul that he enjoys them, and the
added cheerfulness they give his home as
well as any oue. An equally aggravating
case is that where a man who is perfectly
willing to allow the most liberal ex
penditure for the table, and would scorn to
Btint his wife in her wardrobe, even press
ing upon her more than she will take in
that respect, yet is nearly always sure not
to Be any need of improvements about the
home. Every true housewifely
soul institidvely yearns to have
her home as convenient, beautiful
and attractive as possibleven being will
ing to stint herself if necessary for that
end, but many find it hard to get anything
in that way without such a strugglo that
all enjoyment and happiness is destroyed,
and the longed-for improvement a keen
reminder of unploasant memories. If
man says frankly and kindly, "I do not
think we can alford it," no reasonable worn
an would complain or repeat the request-
it is the want of sympathy and the opposi
tion to any little plan she may suggest,
without a stated reason, that is so discourug'
ing and dibheartenfng. I know of a blight
little huuse-keepcr whoso lovely little homo
is a model of comfort ana) good taste and
artistic furnishing. Congratulating her
upon ber charming home, and the evident
pride of her husband, who is really devoted
to her in his home, she told me confiden
tially and lauliinly, but with tears in I) or
eyes, "O, yes, my dear, Arthur is the best
of husbands and as proud as he can be of
his home and all of our nice things, but I
had a struggle for every one of them. You
6ee he does not knuw how much comfort a
woman cau take iu these things, because,
poor fellow I he can never bo a woman."
'hill introduced in the iiousb.
Washington, March 3. Having formu
lated the commendations of tho Mississippi
river commission as to the appropriations
for construction, repair, completion and
preservation of! the works of improvement
in the Mississippi river. Oen. Gibson in
troduced a bill (o-duy, which provides that
13,113,000 bo appropriated aud expended
under tho direction of tho secretary of war,
for initial work, for contracting the channel
and protecting tho caviug banks on six
reaches, constituting a length of 104 miles,
viz.: New Madrid reach, 40 miles; Plum
Point reach, DO miles; Memphis reach, 10
miles; Helena reach, iiO miles; Choctaw
bend, 35 miles; Lake providence reach, 05
miles. Gibson's bill also provides an ap
propriation of two and a half millions for
reppiring and .rl(wlngjgape in levees, which
is 1 19J,000 more than the river commission
recommends and u future appromlution of
a half million dollars for rectification of
the Atclmfalaya and mouth of Red river.
The bill was referred to committees on
levees ami improvements of the Mississippi.
This committee intends to report to the
house a bill making appropriations to the
Mississippi river improvement, which in all
probability will be referred from tho house
to tho commerce committee.
UNION COUNTY LETTER.
Dongola, March, 1883. .
After all the foolish things said through
different papers concerning famine in
"Egypt," we are able to report that Union
county li all right. It is quite noticeablo
Miat all the farmers' horses are in good con
dition for tbe coming spring , and summer
work, and It is a foregone conclusion that
there will not be any suffering among
Union county's people. After reading the
many tionflicting reports about small-pex
in Dongola, we have nearly come to the
conclusion that there is bo such place aa
Dongola for contradictory statements.
The truth in tho matter Is, that we did
havo a bona -fide caso here in Dongola.
A Mrs. Westover died with it a few weeks
ago, and, at this writing, her sister and
father are both down with tho same disease,
they having taken it from her, and, by tho
way, Mrs. Westover' mother died a week
ago, it Is thought;, with tho same disease.
These folks were all in one family, and,
after the first one died, the house was
quarantined ; but the folks loft in the night
and went to their farm, three miles out in
the country. Why any one, who never
saw tho caso and pretending to be a physi
cian, should persist in declaring that we
did not have small-pox in Dongola is a
question we don't think of trying to answer.
We don't know which would be prcforable
in Dongola, Pat, or the fool-killer, wore
Pat to come he would be greeted and wel
comed by a considerable, "who love dark-
noes rather than light, beceuAe their deeds
are evil." w,
A crowd got up a petition in
Dongola and went tearing round for
signers to choke "Old Trim's" pencil.
They got a few ignoramuses, to si;n their
petition, but when told by men of Bcnse
that they were making asses of themselves
they gave it up, and the last one of then '
ever since, has had a "hang-dog look,"
Were the fool killer to come, he undoubt
edly would have a big job, for it would
take him a week to kill all the fools that
Bigned said petition.
Many changes have recently taken place
in Dongola. E. Eddleman & Sons sold
their stock of merchandise to Dillow &
Karaker, and the Eddleman's retired from
business, iu Dongola. Cheap John bought
a house of A. Miacnhimcr and has moved
his stock of goo J a into it.
A. Misenhimer, after resting several
years, is going into mercantile life again,
in Dongola, or rather his sons will' go into
business, occupying the old store building
on East rail road street. We don't be
lieve Cairo, will be swept away by tho
floods, but if she does; in the language of
one of our old citizans, ''Djugola will hold
We have not geen any of that 100-year-old
tobacco of H. Meyer's lately. Como
to Dongola, Bro. Meyers, and we will show
Cheap Jake's new store.
" 'Tis more brave to live than to die."
Therefore don't wait till a slight Cough
devolopcs itself into consumption but se
cure a botlle of Dr. Bull's Cough's Cough
Syrup at the small outlay of 23 cents, cure
your Cough and live on happily.

A Woman After Railroad Passes.
"I want to hIiow you this," said the
Colorado Railroad Superintendent "It's
a rail curiosity us a siuupln of feiuinino
cheek. It is from a woman in Ohio.
"My dear Mr. ," It began, in a
still', corset-like style of writing, "I am
organizing a party to go to Colorado this
spring, ami I write to you for a favor,
which I feel assured you will grant with
out hesitation. The party will number
seventy-five people, most of whom will
bo ladies. I have already found sixty
eight who havo expressed a willingness
to go. What I desire is passes for tho
party. Many of them nru real nice ,
young ladies and perhaiw they will re- ,
main in Colorado it they liko thecountry
real well. Most of them are from very
rich families, and they are very Intelli
gent and well educated. Wo will travel
in conventional tourist fashion, and in-
tend to havo a perfectly lovely timo of
it if the country suits us, and wo think
It will. Please make our passes pood
for six months. I never had tho pleas
ures of meeting you, but I understand
from a gentleman friend who knows
you that you aro very kind to ladies., "
He told me that you would not hesitato
in giving mo passes for tho party. I am
not much acquainted with Colorado,
and hear that it is a very wild and dan
gerous country for women to travel in
without protection. When you send the
passes, pleaso also write mo full partic
ulars concerning the country, tho peo
ple, how they, act, and which is tho most
comfortable attiro for ladies out there.
Some peoplo say it is very cold in Colo
rado. By the timo I hear from you I
shall have niado all my other arrange
ments." "Immense, Isn't it?" queried tho ofil
cial, aa tho reporter looked up from tho '
