Cairo's streets yesterday showed un
usual signs of activity. Aside from tho
largo number of men employed in repair
ing tho Btrccts and removing the wrecks of
the lato storm, there were many country
tennis in, which scattered all over the city
and halted Ijeforc our wholesale and retail
stores to load up with merchandise. The
city had a very prosperous appearance.
From tho last monthly report of the
condition of crops issued by the Stato Board
of Agriculture, it is evident that the crop
prospects throughout tho stato are very
good now. In southern Illinois, reports
from which appear in another column, tho
prospects are equally encouraging. It is
hardly reasonable to expect any lurther
changes in tho temperature which may
blight theso good prospects, therefore it is
safe to expect prosperous times generally
during the coming fall and winter.
Eleven ocean steamers, containg about

from Holland, Germany and Scandinavia,

moved as follows during tho eatno period
of time: Chattanooga, tall ot ono inch;
Cincinnati rise of five inches; Nashville,

and mingled with them are half a dozen or
moro green pods which bavo tho appcaranco
of pea pods but they are not. They aro
velvety to the touch and hollow.' In some

Two of tho small-pox patients in tho
upper part of tho city were in a daiigerouB
stato yesterday. Ono is a littlo girl named
Armstrong and tho other is a Mrs. Llliott.
The other patients aro reported to be all do
ing well. Mr. Fred Whitcamp has almost
entirely recoverod; so has tho child in tho
Bumgard house, from which the disease
took iU start. A man named Hicks, in tho
hospital, is also nearly well again. Tho
worm weather has a beneficial effect be
cause the contagion is less extensive. It
is tho opinion of Dr. Carter who has charge
of all the patients, that during tho worm
weather such as wo had yesterday, tho
germs of tho disease do not extend over
twenty feet from the patient.
It is understood now that tho African
Methodist congregation, whoso church, was
blown down in tho lato hurricane, intend
to rebuild tho structure as soon as possible,
using iionio of tho old material, much of
which can bo utilized. Rev. P. C. Cooper,
who was at tho head of the congregation
when the church was built, takes lead in
tho new undertaking, and is determined to
rebuild the church shortly in
a moro substantial m miner than
before. Rov. Cooper will probably
soon call on his friends for assistance in his
renewed efforts to build and maintain a
church for tho A. M. E. congregation.

two-thirds of tho wheat of tho state is pro

it saves you fr m loss, it warns you of dan

increases your profits. Now, if you want

On his recent trip through tho city,
Captain Thomas was called upon by rep
resentatives of tho two factions among the
colored republicans in this city, with a
view to urging upon him tho claims of the
two young men whom they had respective
ly selected as candidates for an appoint
ment by the captain, The representatives
aforesaid were kindly rccoivod and their
stories patiently listened to. But at tho
conclusion Captain Thomas decided to not
to decide. Ho very properly desires a
candidate who has been elected by the ma
jority of the colored voters, not ono who
had been selected by a faction undercover
of a series of resolutions which were foreign
to tho matter at issue, and which caused a
commotion which resulted in a disgraceful
stampede of tho meeting. He wants to
harmonize the republican party of Alexan
der county, and has struck upon a good
method to do it. He suggests that another
mass meeting bo called; that three judges,
ono appointed by each faction, and tho
third by himself, act as umpires to boo that
thero is no "foul" play, ana that ono can
didate be united upon before tho meeting
adjourns. A second mass meeting will
probably bo called for Saturday.

Thomas. Under the circumstances tho
convention could not well ignore Judge
Damron entirely, aud it did not, but tho
recognition amounts to nothing but
empty honor for tho old gentleman
The convention did good work : it recog
nized the fact that Captain Thomas, witl
his experience, influence, popularity and
position can do moro for his constituents
in a month than Judge Damron could dur
ing a whole term. The republicans f this
district can not afford to ignore Captain
Thomas' superior qualifications as a repro
sentativo qualifications .of the possession
of which he has given mnplo evidence
within the last .few months. Captain
Thomas is entitled p ond has a perfect
right to expect a nomination for tho val
uable work he has done for his constitu
ents while chairman of the committeo on
levees. It is said, that during his visits
here tho people's interests at Washington
were neglected and that tho river bill re
ceived a set-back because of tho Cnptain's
absence If this is true it only proves how
important to tho people Captain Thomas'
presence at Washington is. But it does not
seem to be true. The river interests were
left in competent hands during Captain
Thomas' absenco and they were well guard
ed, as is evident from the fact that the
river bill made good progress. Tho repub
licans of this district have not a man
among them who could do them as much
good at the federal capitol as Capt. Thomas
Mr. J. A. .Thompson, representing the

New Orleans, April 23. A tornado this

A Times Democrat special says: Mon

There was not a treo left. Sam Ilickmau's
fine residence, four miles south west of Mon

Chitto, which is supposed to bo tho same.
It blew several hundred yards of telegraph
wire down and covered tho railroad track
with trees for a distance ot two or moro
miles delaying trains about two hours.
No lives aro reported lost in that vicinity,
however. The people of Monticelio are
utterly destitute. Our citizens have sub

Many pleasant memories have we of
strolls over those great rocks, but particu.
larly of one morning when a merry group
of us clustered about tho baso of two slen
der spires, detached from the ledge and
btauding side by sido, as though plotting
together. We instantly dubbed them "Tis k
and Bub," in honor of two of tho party
standing aloof, indulging in complaints of
our leader for "dragging them all over
everywhere." Of course theyjhavo been
renamed every summer since; but to us
they are tho same, though never again can
we all meet together there.
Saturday morning at ten o'clock,
the air grew frightfully close -and
terrific clouds rolled up in a
solid bank from west to south. They sud
denly passed away to southwest, favoring
us with vivid lightning and a shower of
large drops, after which the sun shone out. .
About four o'clock fluffy black clouds
came up from tho west, and an hour later
the very heavens seemed to close down up
on us, without warning, except one long,
hissing burst of thunder. We expected
the worst; but what was a destructive cy
clono in Cairo, was not more than a short,
sharp blow, which uprooted a few fruit
trees snd leveled a littlo fencing. .
One treo I was afraid would sutler is
what has hitherto been a wild plum. This
yearitis more than that, bearing in addition
to plums, bean or pea-shaped pods. Thcso
pods are fleshy and contain a littlo pellet
near tho point, which is either a seed or an
embryo plum. Can "Trim," or any one
explain such a lusus nature! I shudder as
