-The DuQuoln Tribune says! "Judge

A dispatch received yesterday by Mr.
O. II. Jackson from Mr.W. O. L. Beard,
tho Louisville jockey, sats that the race
made up at Metropolis, between King fen

lollars, is to bo run here at St. Mary's park
ou thu 10th Inst. A grand time may be
expected as both horses have an enviable
record. A tocfrnmont In which ton or fif
teen young men will take part is also to be
ono of tho attractions, dnd again TiiB Bul
lhtin suggests that an effort bo mado to
induce naif n down or mote of Cairo's
graceful and skillful bicyclists to compete
ior a prize.
Old Grandmother Argus cootlnuoa to
emit little silly squibs reflecting upon Tn
BtJLLETik's bold, firm stand tor decency and
right and the majority and the Interests of
the peoplo generally in the late Republican
primaries in this county. Such squibs are
entirely proper, coming from the old lady.
To be mutely, suspiciously, culpably "inde
pendent" white right and wrong are striv
ing for supremacy, and, In a snivelling man
ner, toexhult oVer the Success of tho latter,
are distinguishing characteristics of the
poor old creature.
If Grandmother Argus had mad any
effort to learn what arrangements had been
made by those in charge as to the distribu
tion ot tickets to tuose who are to be ad
mitted to the coming Republican congres
sional convention in this city, she would
not labor in such dense Ignonnce of the
matter and ber dissertations would
be ot soma beneht to her
readers. Tho gentlemen who " have
the matter in charge havo all arrangements
made, by which as many as can be accom
modated in the opera bouse will be admit
ted. A number of tickets equal to the num-
of seats id tbo opora house
will be distributed among the
delegates, each delegate receiv
ing three tickets which be may give to
Whomever he may please. The remainder
will be retained by Mr. C. N. Hughes and
J. C. Willis, eact an equal member, who
will also distribute them as they may choose.
So simple a matter was hardly worthy of so
much speculative comment.
The Columbus Beacon of last week
gives the following particulars of the find
of tbo body of Kilgnre, the Missouri
desperado: "The body of Kilgore, badly
eaten by the boss, was found Wednesday
(yesterday) evening, by some negroes. The
life of this bad man was brought to an end
by a pistol shot from Marshal Bryant, as
was supposed above. Tbo ball entered the
body just below the right nipple, and the
man bad been dead for several days. He
ran about 200 yards from tho scene of the
fight with our officers, and crawled over a
fence, into a field, and died unseen or un
cared for There by paying the penalty of
his great crime. A Coroner's inquest was
held over the remains this (Thursday) morn
ing, but we have not beard the report, nor
disposition to be made ot the corpse. Thus
ends a dreadful tradegy enacted almost in
our midst two Bioav shot and killed, and
The party of three, two men and a wo
man, who, about two weeks ago, attempted
to swindle Mrs. P. H. Howard out of board
and lodging for a day and night, but w'loee
trunk was attached before tbey could get
away, were again beard from yesterday.
As was stated at the time, the woman and
one of the men were an eloping couple from
Chicago and the woman's husband, Mr. J
H. Goem, followed ber, passing through
here but a day behind the fugitives. Yes
terday Mr. and Mrs. Goem, having been re
united, came up on the steamer Ste. Gene
vieve and are oo won their way home. Mr-
Goem overtook his neuing wife
and her intended at Mound City,
accompanied them to Memphis, where he
succeeded in having Mowcry sent to the
penitentiary for one year, and Hush fined
fifty dollars and sent to jail for thirty days.
Mowery appears to be nothing but a profes
sional black leg from Hot Springs to where
the party intended to go when overtaken.
Mr. Goem mado arrangements to have the
trunk left here under attachment on the
down trip sent to them as soon as possible.
Our citizens are to bo congratulated at
tho prospect of witnessing during the com
ing fall and winter season the very best tal
ent in the way of theatricals that has ever
appearod in this city. A glance at the list
of entertainments booked for the season
convinces us that there can be no cause of
complaint from our play-goers that the
management of the Cairo opera house has
failed to comply with the oft-repeated de
mand for first-class artists. Contracts have
been signed and dates named with the fol
lowing companies, the simple publication
of the names being sufficient guarantee
that liberal patronage will be extended by
the amusement loving public of Cairo.

With her Fag Ferry combination; Buffalo

A WORD TO MOTHERS.
As the "sickly season" for toothing In
fants and young children is now fully upon
us, it Is eminently necessary for every
mother who is the happy possessor of one
or more of those frail human blossoms to
exercise more than ordinary caution in the
care of the precious beings intrusted to her
keeping. Many a little life has had to pay
tho forfeit for the mother's thoughtlessness
and many silent hours, empty cridles and
bleeding hearts, has bien tho result of, "I
did not think."
In the extraordinary, fickle and changea
ble weathor through which wo are passing
tho greatest care, is necessary in regard to
proper clothing, which should always be
changed to suit tho temperature, so as to
neither weaken the child with heavy cloth
ing during hot days, or expose it to a sud
den check of perspiration with all its at
tending dangers when tho weathor turns
A lady who is tho happy mother of a
large, healthy family of children, upon
being asked how aha man igcd to keep
them so well, replied : "I am very careful
ot thoir diet, pay proper attention and al
ways, to their baths, change their clothes to
suit the weather." It is no uncommon
thing to see little children on the street
any cool day, looking fairly bluo Iroru the
suddon change, with little, if any more
clothing on than they had in the hottest
This, with injudicious feeding and stuf
fing with strong drugs, undoubtedly adds
largely to our infant mortality.
What is a siddcr sight than to seethe
hands, leut and nose of a little screaming
victim being hold, white a dose of nauseous
drugs is poured down its throat like a de
tective after a thief, to try to arrest the in
jury done from its being allowed to indulge
iu unripe fruit or hurtful vegetable!
The good old adage. "An ounce of pre
vention is worth a pound ot cure," is a
true as it is old, and especially applicable
as a rule to those having the care of young
children. I. A. M
Cairo, III., July 8th, 1832.
A mass meeting of the Democrats of Al
exander county, called for the purpose of
selecting snd instructing delegates to the
senatorial convention to bo bold at Jones-
boro on the 13th instant, was bold at the
court house in this city yesterday afternoon
There was not as large an attendance as was
desirable, but the number reached over one
hundred, which was large enough, consid
ering everything. The important feature of
the convention was its harmony. There
was not the slightest dissatisfaction maci-
fested by any one present throughout tho
mcetiiig. It was in every respect a model
convention. The following is the olhcial
report of the proceedings:
Caiko, III., July e, 1883.

Independence day, our cation's birthday,
of late called the ga-Iorious Fourth (now
don't boar your hair and danco juba; III
not use the phraso again this year) is over;
and we, in common with all mankind, went
out to sco it.
Since your city sees fit to continue the
role of Venice in America, which sho as
sumed so long ago, the only way for us to
reach the spot was by boat or cars. We
clios? the latter and, going to tho nrareit
station on the Wabash road, found the
place already thronged with waiting
holidayists. The small fry of the sterner
sex considered their own importance and
were "not afraid to stand in the middlo of
the track and knock that there old ingine
plum out o' time if she did not hurry
along." Their little sisters preserved a be
coming and awful expectancy of the prom
ised view of the elephant.
The rcisses, all blissfully oblivious to
sullen clouds and bleak winds, were airily
gotten up in light lawns and sandal slip
pers, and shyly watched their attendant
gollants moving to and fro tn a manner to
display the fit of their coats and the squeak
of new boots. The mothers compared
notes on mumps; tho fatlxrs solemnly
marched about in alt tho misery accom
panying occasional stiff collars and store
clothes. At last the train came. We all lotind
seats without much difficulty, the heavy
rain of the previous night probably deter
ring many persons from leaving home.
The cars ran smiothly and at a pleasant
speed, and nothing of note occurred until
we reached Mound City. As the train
glided out from the depot there, the cry was
raised that it had run over some one.
Imagine the feeling of every woman in the
crowd whose ten-year-old boy ha I slipped
out when we first stopped there! I think
one of our passengers was instrumental in
getting up the commotion in our coich ; am
sure sho kept it up, at least. She was evi
dently one of those individuals to whom a
"big gathering" without a catastrophe is
altogether lacking in spice.
Thrusting her head out of the window a
far as possiblo and calculating and ex
claiming to and at any one in the crowd on
the platform who saw fit to respond or net,
she executed a running commentary on
supposed outside scenes which was torturo
to those forced to sit still and listen.
"My, my soruobodys run over they're
stopping the train t Who dyo say it was?
My ! a man? oh, alia I 'Aint a man, then?
child, of course," soto voce. Then
aloud: "My goodness, a chili run over
the track I this an excursion train, tool
Whose child is it? Bid hurt? I declare!
Girl or boy? Poor thing! Awful, ain't it?
What? You d m't say sol net a child)
nobody? My! why I thought there was,
How I enviod the poople outside the
privilege of getting out of hearing of that
tireless tongue and penetrating voice I They
could at least rush pell mell toward the en
gine and see just exactly why we slowed up
and stopped for an instant; but for us there
was nothing but to remain in agonized
suspense and listen tor the groans and
ahrieks of tho mangled one and his friends.
There being no occasion for either, our feel
ings underwent a sudden revulsion; and if
black looks and sharp words could scorch
I imagino the cars and long plume of one
morbidly curious, loquacious sensationalist
would have been done brown.
Our arrival in Cairo was celebrated with
considerable pomp and grandeur. The dif
ferent societies and fire companies in full
rotralia, with brass bands and onglncs, met
us at tho corner of Washington avenue and
Sixth street, and forming In lino deferential
ly called a halt as our train slowly rolled
down to the depot. Once upon the streets
we could not complain of lack of welcome
and opportunities to satisfy the cravings of
hunger, if those who were entire Strangers
even to the place took time to read thu slips
placed iu their hands by the agents ol tho
Methodist and Touipcrauco ladies,
It is not necessary to go into details as to
how wo speot tho day. Your "local" has
told all that in his account of the gay
crowds in the streets, at the park and in
storet, though truth eotupclla me to say that
the tut were not so well patronised as I had
supposed they would be. Perhaps, the wtt
weather, which has delayed wheat-threshing
had something to do with It.
Cairo should consider herself wonder
fully fortunate to be able to offer her citi
zens all the advantagesof a trip around th o
lakes with home comforts. No need for
her families to break up this summer in
order to enjoy water-privileges. And we
wero told that those inland lakes are
healthy, as the water brings the impurities
of (he ground to the surface, where the sua
dries up what the rains fail to wash off.
The day, which ended for us at six o'clock
when we re-entered the cars, was not long
enough for those of us who haJ crowded
shopping in with other diversions, but when
we hurried to the traio wo found it already
half filled. The wide doors of the spacious
depot were thrown iovitingly open, but we
could oaly Uke time to glance in as we
passed by and mentally covet a slip of tho
thrifty ivy vine in one of the windows.
Altogether it was a remarkably cold,
pleasant, quiet Fourth, I thought. We
reached town too late to hear any allusions
to our forefathers and the late lamented,
heaven be praised ! cons-qiently the spirit
of 'TO was dclightfuily Iamb like on the re
turn trip, wi;h no sign of patriotism in the
shapoof firewater and firecrackers. (On
second thought it occurs to ms that rur
good behavior may have been due to the
fact that the Johnson county element re
mained over till morning.)
The morning clouds had vanished, the
steely blue of the clear sky softened and
mellowed in the west till the sun slid down
into a golden glory that would have done
credit to Italy.
