Until yesterday only two of tho sowers
had been opened ; but, since tho river has
fallen rapidly since Sunday, it is probable
that the others will bo opened to day or to
morrow. Then what styio water remains in
tho low places will disappear rapidly, and
Lake Edwards, with its numerous fancy
boats and happy gatherings, will exist only
as a pleasant picture in the minds of tho

Tho littlu negro boy who was taken
sick with small-pox in the old Bumgnrd
hpUBO at tho corner of Seventeenth and
Poplar streets one day lust week, died yes
terday morning, and was buried under tho
direction of tho.Sisters of the Holy Cross,
to whom the remains wcro turned over by
Chief Myers for tho city. Tho littlo boy

This is the sort of weather that mikes

In Sunday's Bulletin, in reply to tho
Pulaski Patriot, we intended to say that
"The Bulletin did not and does not deny
thot Alexander county received and dis
tributed NO more rations than were need
ed." Instead of this, the little word "no"
being omitted, wo were maac to say just
the reverse of what was' intended. It
seems that, spoken or not spoken, that little
word "no" is bound to create mischief at
least in our case.
A fine Newfoundland dog, belonging
in the hardware store of Mr. C. W. Hen
derson, was suddenly attacked with a fit of
madness Sunday while laying in the
store. He moved about blindly snapping
at Btoves and savagely chewing at the iron
implements around him. Chief Myers was
callied in, and he shot the dog dead and
had him taken to the Ohio river. As three
or four coses of this kind have occurred in
tho city within the last month or two, it is
well that owners of dogs should watch
them closely. k

Bulletin th's morning presents the name
of Mr. Adolph Swobixla, as a dandidsto for
alderman from the Fourth - ward. Purine
the two years of Mr. Swoboda's career as
councilman from the Fourth ward he has
Bhowo good judgment in his votes upon
questions of importance to the city at large
sad has been alert to the interests of his
own ward. Ho was always at his
post in the council and took
a lively interest in all its deliberations.
His two years' experience have been of
valuo to him and render him the m re
valuable to tho peoplo he repreM:nt3. It
would be difficult if not impossible to find
a man who would or could represent the
Fourth ward more satisfactorily than
would Mr. Swoboda.
In a letter to tho governor of Missouri
Mr.D. W. Danforth, the agent to receive
supplies at Charleston, Mo., states that he
has two thousand rations on hand; th it it
being too late to sow oats, no more is need-.-d,
but Hungarian and millet seed is want
ed; also a few seed potatoes for early use.
Fifty sacks of corn had been received from
Miles Sells, St. Louis, but that will not
nearly fill the demand. Quite a number of
small farmers will do their best to raise a
crop if they can get seed, and Mr. Danforth
suggests that they should bo encouraged in
order that they miy bo enabled to take
care of their stock, etc. Mr. Danforth states
that the prompt and business-like manner
of tho secretary of . war has saved many
people from utter want and starvation, and
more than that from becoming thieves and
preying upon their neighbors.
As soon as tho working season opens
in the flooded district of Mississippi a new
stock law will bo put in force so that crops
can bo raised without fences.
Mississippi county, Mo., from which Cairo
draws her principal supply of water-melons,
has suffered much in tho way of destroyed
fences which can not bo rebuilt In time to
raise a crop this year. . Theruforo Missis
sippi county must either have a new stock
law requiring all owners ot stock to keep
it from running at largo during tho . plant
ing, growing and harvesting season, or
sho must abndon all idea of raising
over one fourth an average crop this .year.
Alexander county funnels have also, suf
fered in tho destruction of fences, barns
and out-houses; but not us seriously as
tome suppose. Tho water tins now nearly
disappeared ana report comes Irom several
precincts that fanners are woiking with
iniiv.li energy repairing damages and put
ting in crops.
A colored woman named America
Jackson, living in tho old Wilcox block,
raised a great disturbance in that neigh
bornood Sunday morning, Sumo ono
struck her while sho was standing In her
front door, and not knowing who tho
guilty party was, sho proceeded to nbuso
all within tho sound of her voice In n
most .disgraceful manner. As her voice
spread over considerable territory her
abjiMi included quite a number of neces
sarily innocent persons. Officer Ha.. Mar
tin was among theMj bitter and lie arrested
the woman. Ann tic:i was tried l.y J(i,:le.ti
J. IT. Robinson yesterday nnd fined twenty
five dollars nud costs which sho could not
pay; but being tho mother of two sirfall
children who depend upon her tor cure, she
was not jailed but au execution issued
which will be enforced if she does not be
have. Elections will this year be held in
twenty-two states besides Pennsylvania.
Next month Rhode Island will elect state
officers and members of the legislature, to
bo followed in Juno by Oregon. Ken
tucky will elect members of the court of
appeals in August, and Tennessee aud Ala
bama will elect Governors and legislatures
the same month. Maine will elect a gov
ernor and legislature in September and the
latter will choose a successor to Senator
Fryo. In October Ohio and Iowa will
hold elections for minor offices and during
tho same-month West Virginia will elect a
governor and stato legislature. In No
vember Texas, South Carolina, New Ramp
shire, Michigan, Nebraska, Nevada, Mas
sachusetts, Kansas, Connecticut, Deleware
and New York will elect governors, while
Illinois will choose a new legislature whose
duty it will bo to elect a senator to suc
ceed David Davis. The aspirants for this
position are already in the field and is can
vassing tho state.
Up to yesterday afternoon no reply
had been received by the sub -committee of
five, of the citizeus committee of twenty
five, from the officials of tho Wabash rail
road company as to whether said company
would join with tho narrow gunge railroad
company in building an embankment,
cither on tho outer or inner side of the
city's new levee, in accordance with the
plan sent them by tho sub committee about
ten days ago. The reason of tit delay
is probably that the St. Louis officials of
the Wabash road, are not authorized to
make any satisfactory answer without pre
vious consultation with some Now York
officials. This is all right, but it does
seem that the "brief ppace of time" al
lowed by President Whitehead, of the nar
nw guage road to the Wabash company,
iu which t accept or reject this offer
made by tba former, is rapidly onesing
away. It may bo that it has alrcaty
passed away long agi, fur President White
head wisely reserved to himself tho right
to say w hat constitutes a "brief space of
time." But be ail this as it miy. it is Dot
likely that , President Whitehead or th j
Barrow guige officials will show very much
concern so long as I igh water cuts them
off from this city; but as soon as the
obstacle shall Ii.ivj disappeared, so that
any understanding arrived at between them
and the city council can be carried out,
then a change will come over the officials
ami they will treat tho propositions of the
council and the citiz-.-ns with ordinary re
spect. A great big fat negro woman, carrying
a wash basket, wad lies up a citizen who

Will donate one hundred dollars to any charitable institution tho mayor of Cairo may

for certain lines of goods that nr so ridiculously low as to seem impossible to the
publir, and even to other dealers, and wo do not blaino them for their incredulity, bo
ing asley are, unawaro of tho advantages and facilities we have for obtaining atcer

and hero are the
ADVANTAGES WE HAVE:
FIRST The quantity of merchandise we buy to supply nur numerous stores.
SECOND We have ample cupital and nn: prepared to buy cai-h down.
THIRD We aro at all times represented in eastern markets by a resident buyer,
who is always on the lookout.
Now, it is by taking advantnge of thei" opportunities that we do from time to time,
name such apparently ridiculously low prices, For instance wo are selling Middlesex

genuine without ticket. A very nice Cheviot Suit for $'.).50, worth $13.00. A very nob
by Rod Sitk Mixed Suit at $12 50. worth $10.00. We do not sell troods for lea than cost.
We want it distinctly understood that we make n sin-ill profit on everything we seli, for
that principle by which a merchant can sell goods for less thnn cokt, and still keep store,
has never yet been discovered. Come and see our goods. You will not be importuned

what reputation! The reputation of beat

eleven minutes? Mr. Sullivan can't beat
me that way, and if he can, let him cover

eight battles for large sums of money, three
of them for tho championship. I on

One of the first days of last week a
flour commission firm on Ohio levee, being
among the heaviest bnyers nnd sellers iu
this city, ordered one hundred and twen'y
five barrels of flour ir mi Sparta, on the
narrow gauge railroad, tn be sent to East
St. Louis tor the purpose of bringing it
down from there on tho Cairo and ist. Louis
short line. Tho freight rate for carrying
the flour from Sparta n East tt. Louis,
agreed upon between the firm and the nar
row g -u go company, was twenty Cents per
barrel, but when the fl'Hir bud been ship
ped the freight bill cahed fmftww dollars
and a half more ihn was agrted n;x)n.
The total freight bill from Spsrfu to Knot
St. Lo lis ou the narrow gauge road, a dis
tance of about fifty miles, was twenfy-seveu
and a baifd dlurs; the freight bill on the
s iiuehd of fl.nir from Eist S'. L :uis to
Cairo on the short line, a dist mcj of about
tlireo times fifty nub-s, wss twenty-five, dob
btrs, or two and a half dollars h as. Sme
hliowaocv must, of cou s-, I made for the
fact Hut tie; slwrt line gave through rates
and the narrow gauge gave way rates. Tub
lin.LKTJX dot not deny tlJ rights if a
railroad company to charge mow per mile
for short t Inn for long distance-, but it
Iocs seeni that to make way rates more
than three tinvs the usual through rates is
putting it on just a ht;lo too thick." The
narrow giu ' company is evidently not
keeping posted oa the price of eggs. The
wholesale price of le-nfruit now is fifteen
ctnts per doz;n, and of twelve merchants
we visited yesterday only one asked more
than an advance of twenty jm.t cent, on the
wholesale price whn only ono or two dozen
were wanted. It would seem, therefore,
that tho narrow gmiL'e company, in making
its way freight rates over tbrt-o hundred
per cent higher than tho ti-u-d through
rates it just went about two hundred and
wv"'nty-five per cent, too high and, figura
tively fieakiiig, stands in great danger of
breaking its neck in coining down to
