Thu imitative and dramatic tendencies
of our American youth are taking serious
nd not altogether innocent forms. Two
weelw after thu shooting of Jessio James
there weio several dangerous pistol-shot
wounds inflicted on iheir companions by
lads who went through tho motiou of show
ing "how Jesse James did." This was iu
Missouri. In Connecticut tho spot tivo dis
position vents itself in imitative hanging of
Uuitciiu. One day last week some children
at Norwich mtspeirlud ono of their number
to a maplu tree and ran off and left him.
A neighbor saw thu performance, and cut
tho rope and released the victim. A day
or two after this a company of littlo girls at
Crueiivillo, iu tho samo state, performed tho
Ouitettu tragedy with a lurge-siasod doll for
thu subject. It Is all a mistake to tuppoio
that children do not read the papers and
know what is going on iu the world. We
need not be surprised any day to learn that
a company of terrible infants in some part
ot the United Status have re-enacted tho

At present there is no danger whatever
of tho outbreak of yellow fuver even as far
up tho river as Memphis. Although sev
eral cases have made their appeiaranco in
Florida, and one or two In New Orleans,
no fear is entertained there that the disease
will break out iu anything like an epidemic
form. Every precaution has been taken by
local authorities to remove all conditions
that may prove favorable to the spread of
any disease; and New Orleamj and Mem
phis, cities which in former years suffered
most severely from epidemics and filth, aro
two of tho cleanest cities in tho couutry.
In 1S78, when thu disease reached far up
tho Ohio river, it broke out in an epidemic
form at New Orleans as early as the month
of May. Now it is July, and there havo
been but ono or two cases in 'that city and
none above it in the valley of the great
rivers. It may bo entirely safe to assume
that thero will bo no yellow fever epidemic
in this country this year.
An extended survey of the corn out
look in Southern Illinois revoals'fho fact
that this portiou of thu Stato has fared
much better in tho matter of corn weather
than havo tho central and northern portions.
As a rule tho corn prospects in Southern
Illinois is very good, and all that is needed
is a littlo rain between now and the middle
of next month to insure an averago yield.
Iu counties further north corn is rapidly
improving, and tho situation is far from be
ing as gloomy as it was two weeks ago. Iu
Southern Indiana corn is doing extremely
well, and excepting on some bottom lands
where it was drowned out by floods, it
promises a lino yield. Both iu Southern
Illinois and Southern Indiana tho crop of
wheat and oats is turning out very lanre.
Throughout Minuesota the wheat prospects
remain very favorable, ami havo rather im
proved than otherwise in thu southern part
of tho state. The cool weather, which has
benefited wheat by preventing rust and
keeping off tho chinch bugs, has made corn
somewhat backward, but not to a discour
It seems that The Bulletin's hopes
politically are for onco shattered. It had
hopod that Co!. Dowdall would consent to
become a candidate for state treasurer of
Illinois on tho Democratic ticket next
lloveiuber, but this reply of the Peoria
Democrat, Col. Dowdall's paper, to an item
in the Springfield Register, in which the
last named pifjier expresses the opinion that
the Col. would not accept a nomination,
causes The Bulletin to hang its head in
sorrow and weep tears of bitter disappoint
ment. Tho Democrat says: "The Regis
ter guesses Mr. Dowdall's feelings exactly
on that subject; he is uot au aspirant lor
any office, has never been an aspirant for
any office, never came before tho people
but onco in his life for office and was nom
inated at that time against his wishes; aud
at tho risk of being condstderud cheeky in
declining a thing before it is offered him,
jivill say he never expects to be a candidate
'for ollico. The offico bo holds the Na
tional Democrat keeps, him busy, and if
ho succeeds in making his paper what he
most desires, it slruld bo a lever of strength
to help send tho Democratic party to thu
front, and fill all the offices, both stato aud
national, with good Democrats. Then Mr.
Dowdall's ambition will bo gratified."
' "A special dispatch to tho Argus" last
evening, of which, strange to say, tho
telegraph operators hero know nothing
at all, announced that Sullivan had been
knocked down twenty-seven times by
Wilson in a prizu fight at Now York on
tho 18th. Theso "special dispatches to
tho Argus" have for some time past been
suspected to ba frauds practiced upon in
nocent readers, but the old lady seemed to
enjoy tho apparent success at petty decep
tion so hugely that we thought it cruul to
disturb ho. But her supposed success made
her hold, and the fradulent character of tho
"dispatches" of yesterday evening was so
flagrant that it made her the
laughing Btock of all intel
ligent readers. Tho truth is . that
the prizo fight-did not tako place yester
day, and Sullivan was not whipped. Sul
livan received only onu blow in tho face
and knocked Wilson down nine times in
tho first round, eight times in the sccoud
ami five times cituh in tho third aud fourth.
Wilson made no attempt at lighting, but
sought only to win tho stakes by standing
up to the scratch until after
the time in which Sullivan
had agreed to knock him "out of
time," and in this hu succeu lud, tho fight
lasting fully (lfteun minutes, and the time
sot being twelve. Tho Htakos were two
thousand dollars. About fifteen thousand
peoplo witnessed tho lunthetic, elevating

Since the destruction of tho convent
three years ago, by fire, tho result, of a
lightning bolt, the Sisters of Loretta have
been laboring under the most disheartening
disadvantages in the prosecution of their
vocation as Christian iustructois. Lacking
a sufficiency of funds to complete, entirely,
their new building, their accommodations
for boarding students from tho contiguous
states havo not been such as to justify them
in soliciting that patronage which was their
principal revenue iu years past. Their high
efficiency as instructors is practically at
tested in tho many cultured young ladies
who have been graduatod from their insti
tution, and who now must deplore the retro
grade career of their Alma Mater, brought
on by severe ad verso circumstances. The
overflow, epidemic, and threatened epi demics,
together with that fell lightning
stroke that destroyed their building during
that memorable June night, have worked
untold injury to their interests. Again
placed ujjpn a solid footing they can regain
the prestige lost. It therefore behooves
their friends in Cairo, aud all others who
desire that Cairo should not lose one jot of
her educational reputation, to exert them
selves in these ladies' behalf. They are
really in distressed circumstances. The

Yesterday morning tho case of Sol.
Farnbaker who was arrested on a charge of
knowingly receiving stolen goods and
larceny, came up before Justice J. H. Rob
irison. Defendant took a change of venue to
the court of Magistrate Comings, who al ter
an examination of four or Gvo witnesses on
both sides, acquitted the defendant. It
was brought out in thu evidence that the
cha:n was sold to Farubuker by George
Robinson, a negro, who keeps a restaurant
down town, for eight and a halt dollars,
and that Robinson got it from tho thief di
rect and sold it for tho thief at tho thief's
request; but whether or not Robinson did
so with a full knowledge of how the chain
had been obtained was not brought out.
Robinson denied iu his testimony that he
told Farnbaker that the chain was
"crooked", and the testimony of the offi
cers on this point was not positive.
Farnbaker had only intimated to tho offi
cers that be knew of a gold chain and a
pistol which were "crooked," and asked of
the officers if they knew of any ono who
Iwnl lost such articles. Farnbaker himself
swore that he did not know when he bought
the chain that it was stolen property, but
learned of it aftewards and then
told tho officers ot it. So far
everything seems satisfactory enough, but
there is one point upon which some infor
mation is still wanting, and that is the
whereabouts of tho thief. It seems that
the officers went boldly to work to discover
the thief, regardless of whom it might im
plicate, and they succeeded iu discovering,
not him, but only who ho was. But they
learned also at the same timu that thu thief
had in soinu way been warnud and nude

Thu reason why Strattou was nomi
nated by the R"publicau statu convention , in
preference to the half dozen better men
wlni offered themselves for that position, is
briefly stated in the following words of
Long Jones, chairman of tho Republican
state central committee, iu a conversation
with the representative of an Independent
paper of northern Illinois, on tho day of the
convention : "I mot Long Jones at Spring
field thu other day and heard him expound
soinu of his peculiar creed notions regard
ing politics and education, especially in
connection with tho stato superintendency.
Personally hu said hu should sustain Mr.
Slade, 'but,' ho went on to say, 'tho fact is,
Slado isn't enough of a politician for the
place. Wu want a politician in that office.
The schools in Illinois owe all they aro to
tho Republican party, and all that there is
iu tho offico of stato supeiintendent ought
to go to the Republican party. Now, thero
is no officer iu the stato that can use so
strong a political influenco as the superin
tendent of schools if ho has a mind to. Ho
can control county superintendents, who
can control toachcrs, who can just get right
out into the school districts and orgatuzo
them butter than any sort of men, ami beat
tho Democrats before they know what
struck 'em. There isn't a man in tho stato
that could begin to do that liko a stato su
perintendent, and wo ought to havo it. But
Slado can't do it. All ho cares for is his
schools and school teacliots, and to bo
elected again when thu time comus round.
That's the good thing about Stralton,
though. Ile'd work this school businoss
up for tho party, and that's going to make
him strong in the convention.' "
An alarm of lire was rung last night
about twelve o'clock because ot the burning
of a little frame shanty st Hiding near the
coiner or Fifteenth and Poplar streets the
northeast corner. Aliliutgh late in the
night when neatly iillgmd Cairoitcs aro in
bed, the alarm c uised a grunt crowd of
peoplo to gather around thu firo in a very
short time. The fire department was also
promptly on hand, but not in time to save
the burning house. The corner house and
the onu next to it were entirely con
sumed, but tho third, which had also
caught, was saved. Tho houses were all
occupied by poor while people, who saved
nearly oil their little personal property.
Tho destroyed buildings were tho property
ot Col. McKcaig, and a colored man
named Green and tho loss will bo hardly
felt by them, as tho houses weru small and
iu bad condition.
Thu Chicago Tribune's Cairo corre
spondent makes Ju dgu"Damron, Johnson
county's badly beaten chieftain, say some
very naughty things in a conversation had
with him tho day after tho convention ad
journed. Hero is what the judge said:
"Let thero be no mistake about it. I will
hurt Thomas all I can. I won't be treated
as I have been treated by tho delegation
from my county and patiently submit to it.
If my delegatii n had all remained here I
am satisfied they -would have stood by me,
and I should have beeu nominated. But
six of them got tired out ami disgusted,
and had to go home, and their proxies were
put in the 'lands of irresponsible muu who
bolted instructions under tho leadership of
Simpson and Jones. Simpson's grievances
against me, as he explains t, is that I once
reported him to a commercial agency as
bankrupt. If I did, it was the truth, but I
really don't remember now whether I did
or not. Thu fact is, I have helped that nrm
settle his debts and get on his feet. I held
a note on him for years, and finally turned
it over to my brother and settled it for 50
cents on the dollar. The real trouble is, he
feared he wouldn't lie reappointed postmas
ter at Vienna if anybody but Thomas was
nomited, aud that settled it with hitn.
What I complain of is the manner in which
I was treated by tho delegation from my
own county. If any other county had
bolted on me, it wouldn't have been so bad.
Two of the men who got proxies to sit on
the delegation have no business whatever,
spend half their timu in Caito in dissipa
tion, and would think nothing of burning
a man out. While I icret the situation, I
won't have the politics of Johnson county
controlled by such men as beat mo in this
convention. I may vote tor him, but I
won't work for him. Tho fact is, they can't
get up a decent meeting in Johnson county
without my help. I shall not only not work
for Thomas, but shall work against him,
and, if necessary, take tho stump against
him. If I had been beaten fairly I
shouldn't have said a word, but to have my
own county manipulated so that it would
bolt on me is a little more than I can stand,
and I'm not ioing to stand it, cither."

CAIItO STILL BOOMING.
TWO IMI'OIITANT NEW INSTITUTIONS TO I)E
1'1'T IN Ol'EKATION BOON.
For some months past it has been known
by a few that thero would soon be estab
lished in this city a novel new brick manu
factory, but, for reasons satisfactory to the
projectors Messrs. A. C. Coleman, and James
R. McCluro, it was suppressed. Now, how
ever, the buildings havo been already erec
ted and tho machinery nearly ull put up
ready for work, and tho matter has become
too coiupicious to bo longer suppressed for
The buildings consist of a Fei ies of exten
sive sheils, substantially built, standing
near the Mississippi levee, between Thir
teenth and Fourteenth streets. The ma
chinery employed in the munutacturoof the
brick is of an improved character, which
will compress tho clay brick in thu moulds
to one half their original size and render
them much harder than the ordinary brick.
Furthermore, thu machine is so eisily op
erated that a boy of fifteen yoarsc in, after ft
little practice, run it at its full capacity
and turn out as many brick in a day as can
bo turned out in a week by the ordinary pro
cess. One of the advantages ol this new
process, and in which lies iu a great meas
ure its speed, is that thu newlv formed
brick are not sun dried, but are transferred
directly from the moulds into an oven where
they aru baked and from which they are
taken ready for use.
Judge Coleman is a practical brickmak'T
of many years experience, and has enter
tained the idea ot establishing a brick
factory in (his city for several years, but
doubt as to the character of the clay to bo
obtained here deterred him from going into
enterprise sooner. But tkis doubt has been
entirely dispelled by an examination of
the earth deposits outside the Mississippi
levee, which the judge found to be equal
to the best of its kind an'l in inexhaustible
quantities, Messrs. Coleman and Mc
Clure's brick manufactory will sixm be one
of the busy, important institutions of our
city, Bud from present indications it is rea
Bonable to believe that it will hu taxed to
its utmost capacity to supply the demand
for brick that will manifest itself during
the coming fall season. .
Another important institution which is
to be soon established here, and the neces
sity of which in Cairo Tim Bulletin has
taken occasion to point out, is an institu
tion fur the artificial production of ice on
a largo scale. This city consumes an im
mense quantity of ice every summer and
pays very faucy prices, for it is
seldom that winters are severe
enough U permit the storage)
of ice from tho rivers here, on 1 wo always
depend upon tho great ice dealers of thu
north for our congealed water. In the
south ice factories aro numerous and they
produce purer ice than is obtained by tho
natural process, and sell it even now for
ono cent per pound while we are paying
from two to three and a half cents.
Messrs. Charles Oalligher it Son are at
the head of this now enterprise, an.l they
have already taken nil preliminary steps
toward a speedy beginning of the several
largo buildings necessary to conducting the
business on a largo scale. Three brick
buildings will bo built. One for the steam
boilers, thirty by forty feet in dimensions;
another for tho machinery, such as engine,
gas pumps, gas condenser ami several great
reservoirs, which will bo forty by sixty fert
and two stories; tho third will bu a spa
cious store house, capable of containing up
wards of three thousand tons of ico. Tho
first two buildings will bo of brick and will
have iron roofs.
It is expected that work on these build
ings will begin in a few days, and that they
will bu erected in the upper portion of tho
city, near tho Ohio levee. Tho machinery,
which will all bo of thu latest improvud,
will have a capacity of producing about
twenty tons ot led per day, and will bo in
creased as the demand may be felt.
These twn new institutions will supply a
groat demand in tho cily, and will add to
tho wealth and industry which is rapidly
giving Cairo a bright nanio among her
Bister cities. If now the nipo water com
mitteo will Inaugurate some ell'ectivu plain
for pre venting the city's greatest evil in tho
future, and if tho owners of the valuable
lots recently vacatuil by fire, will replace
tho destroyed buildings with fine business
structures as tho business of thu city plain
ly demands, and if the groat, Singer works
and tho oil mills shall bu in full operation
and build thu contemplated groat additions,
thou will Cairo once more present a lively
appnaranco, such as but fuw other cities of
her size ran boast of.
