m high as five inches in clrcumforence.
They wore not like generally large berries
re, sour and unpalatable, but sweet and
luscious. .TUeiw berries were from Capt.

Columbus, Ky., who is now shipping about
two hundred cases per day, and if weather
should turn warm would ship thou by the

Much praiso is duo to tho captains and

who always make it a point to render
every possible assistanco in fighting fire in
tho city. At Wednesday morning's firo tho
II. S. McComb, commanded by Capt. II.
V. Thompson, and tho smaller boat of
Haiti Jay Bros., did somo splendid work.
But at this firo as at nearly every other
fire where the city's hoso was tosted in con
nection with tho McComb's, it was found
to bo very defectivo. Tho McComb's hoso
had boon drawn on tho top of tho Cuhl
buildiug and tho pumping apparatus was
forcing tho water up there from tho river
with a pressure of one hundred and forty
pounds without doing any damage to tho
hoso. The city's Lose of the samo dimen
sions and weight was also attached to the
boat's pump, subjected to a pressure ot ono
hundred pounds and torn all to pieces
bnio and ajain. With every fair test it
bocomes more evident that the city has
boen badly swindled in its fire hose, which
must be duo to imperfect testing when tho
hose was bought. In tho future the city
should have all new firo hose tested by the
Mr. John O'Brien, ot Bt. Louis, was in

was formerly a citizen of Cairo, in partner

St. Louis several years ago, established
himself in busines thero, and, by his skill
and industry, has succeeded in ebtablish

workshops in the city. Ho employes con
stantly about ono hundred and twenty-five
men and receives orders for work from all
over the country. His visit to Curo was
for tho purpose of perfecting arrangements
for doing several big jobs of work for par
tics in this city, ne has tho contract for
repairing the damage done to the gas

feature of which will be a new uas holder.

The petitions asking the Illinois state
board of health to use its influence with the
proper federal officers to have the marine
surgeon's office temporarily removed from
tho post office te St. Mary's Infirmary where
the marine hospital station now is. have
been circulated very l'rocly througout the
city and are being signed by nearly all
citizens under whoso observation they fall.
Tho officials of tho several railroads have
becomo interested in the movement and have
circulated tho petitions among their subor
dinates with ami success. The
mayor and city council have also signed it.
as havo also nearly all the government offi
cials in tho custom houso. Tho object
saught to bo attained by tho petitioners is
so palpably beneficial to tho community at
largo that but few, if any, hesitate to give
it their hearty support. That thojubject
will be attained there is no doubt, for the
evil complained of is too flagrant, and tho
complaint will bo too loud, to bo ignored
by tho federal board of health and tho
surgeon jeural, who have, respectively,
chargo of tho general public health and of
the marine hospital service. The petitions,
when ready, will go to Secretary J. II.
Raucb,of tho Illiuois board of health; this
board will embody -tho petition in a re
quest to tho federal botnl of health, which
will, in turn, submit the petitions, etc., to
the surgeon itenoral, together with s request
that the evil corn plained of bo speedily
removed, and this officer, seeing the neces
sity of it at a glance, will not hesitate to
comply with tho request! Tho
only reason tho government could urgo
against the removal of tlio surgeon's office
from tho post offlco, would be that such a
step would necessitate the paying of office
runt. But such an objection is not good
when the safety of human life is concern
ed. Dollars and cents are not to bo weigh
od in tho balanco against tho lives of
friends and lovod ones, , and the federal
government will probably not permit th
to bo dono.
