LETTER FROM DIXON SPRINGS.
July 20th, 1882.
Your correspondent it still hero with an
inclination to remain all the balance of tho
summer it duty docs not call to other Melds
and pastures, new or old.
My last lotter to you had tho desired ef
fect and more than realized tho hopes of
the most tanguino lady in tho company.
Tho call for "more men" wan answered in
manner that reminds one of the long
"We are coming Father Abraham a hun
dred thoiwtnd more." It hat fairly rained
men. Every ttage that brought the mail
also brought initio additions to our crowd
until tho majority now rests with that per
suation with "several more counties to hear
from." Wo havo from Cairo a "gang" con
listing of Mr. Hoas, Paul Schuh, Mr. Bur
ger, Gus Botto.M. ilyman, Mr. Scott and
Wm. Ludwig it Co. (names copied from
the Rogiitor);frora Faducai), Cum. Woillo,
E J. L. Atkins, and among othenfrom other
places, Mr. Curmick, Capt. Mark Cole,
Mr. Hchuiurlo, Mr. Dunnivan, Mr. Super,
Mr. Burnett, of Tub Bulletin. The Cairo
"gang" has a cottage to themselves that they
have named "Angel's Hotreat," and the
angelic doings in tho retreat would no
doubt be a surprise to the Angels down
below. The "boys" say Mr. Hoaa is tho
most angelic of all the Angels, but his
language, when tho string broko and let
his beer bottles to tho bottom of the cis
tern, was anything but what tho laneuano
ot the Angels is supposed to be. He lias
invited all the children at the sprint's to
come to Cuiro and visit his little boy and
girl, "loung Jumbo's", be calls them.
Among the ladies hero now from Cairo
may mention : Mrs. Hiuklo and Mrs. Bar
clay (whose husbands have not yet put in
an appearance, but are expected to-morrow),
Mrs. Burnett, Miss Maud Burnett, and one
or two others that I do not just now think
ol. Rooms are ready for Mrs. Bradley and
sister, also of Cairo. Evausville is repre
sented by Mrs. Brown and two pretty
duughters, Mrs. aud Miss Tanner, Mrs.
Barton and son. Two Miss Buicourts and
Mrs. Story are among the lute arrivals. A
large party is expected to day, among tiieui
Mr. and Mrs. Bishop, of Cincinnati; Mr
and Mrs. Wilson, of Capo Girardeau, and
Judge Tanner, of Evansville.
Guests have not lacked for opportunity
for amusing themselves. Lait Saturday
night a grand masquerade wu given in
which a couple of dozen appeared eu mas
que in costumes gotten up for the occasion,
some of them very fine. In this matter
Mrs. Brown, of Evansville, was the leading
spirit. The music for the nightly hops is
furnished by two violins and the piano.
Yesterday two carriago-loads of our people
drove into Golconda to "see tho town and
have tome fun." They have not yet re
turned. Of course, tho weather is cool
with you, judging from what we have hero.
Summer seems to be a long time comma.
Heavy clothes are still a necessity for
morning and evening, and plenty of bed
clothing are indijpensiblo for a comfortable
night's sleep. Fishing 'm nearly dono, for
the water around the springs are fished
dry. Mr. Burnett caught a fine string of
fish, and a bad cold that has laid him up.
I believe bo is now sick in bed with it,
but being out of rcich of doctors' and medi
cines is safe and must bo all right in a few
days. ' Hunting there is none.

FLOWERS ON THE COFFIN.
Some writer has said, "If my frieuds
have alabaster boxes laid away, full of
perfumes ol sympathy and alTection which
thuy intend to break over my deal body,
I would far rather they would bring them
out in my weary hours and open them that
I may be refreshed and cheered by them.
While I need them, I would rather have a
plain base coffin without a (lower, and a
funeral without a eulogy than a life with
out the sweetness of love and sympathy."
What does it matter to tho pale, silent
Pilgrim who 1ms fou:;ht his goudjflght and
furnished his course if we la-den his bier
with precious flowers whose sweet perfume
fills the air? Havo we not passed him day
after day with ouly a cold nod of recogni
tion wIibu he was weary, faint aud heavy
laieued with bis burden of daily care?
The flowers we now tend to wither on his
coffin might havo been given in teuder
words of encouragement ami sympathy
lifting up his dropping spirit, and been a
cooling irauft to his thirsty lips, a balm to
the weary toul that has now pasned beyond
the pale of human sympathy oi neglect.
Perhaps, wo have noticed a pale-faced
young mother as she often passed our door
with her feeble babe in her arms. We do
not know her, nor caro to know her. A fter
while we miss her face, and we notice the
Dr. making daily visits to her humble
home, then iu a few dtys a bit of white
crape on the door tells tho sad story of
bereavement. Conscience may now whisper
to ut that wo havo not acted jurt tho
Christians part to our lonely neighbor nnd
to silence this twine, wo send her au offer
ing ot flowers to placo on tho coffin of her
Ah I would wo not havo been happier had
wo offered words of sympathy, advice and
encouragement to this poor young thing,
ho fur from mother before death camo to
claim her darling, and might wo nut, in
this way, havo bestowed tloweri they would
never fado, but shed a fragrance to both
giver and recipient far into tho years to
Let our friends leo that wo lovo them
whilo they aro yet living. Do not keep
tho flowers of tenderness from them until
they are dead. When dreamless rcit is
tholn they will not noed the sympathy, for
which they igh to-day and flowers placed
on the coffin lid sheds no brightness back
ward ovir the weary desert of life.

MEN WOMEN AND BOOKS.
EDITED IN THE INTEREST Ot THE CAIRO
The study class will moot as usual at the
residence of Mrs. W. R. Smith on Tuesday
afternoon. The study of art history by
Miss De Forest will be resumed.
The Great Tone Misters is a series of
short memories of great musical composers
by F. Crowcst. It contans just the infor
mation many people will be glad to have
in such compact firm. It includes Bade,
0 luck,. Handel, Beethoven, Mendelssohu,
Mozart, Weber, Rossini, Shubert and
Sherman. Sevral of above mentioned were
received at the Public Library last week.
People's thoughts just now aro towards
the wonderful eastern land. No better
book of information on the manners and
customs of the Egyptians can be found
than some of the delightful novels by Geo.
Ebers. One is "Marda," tho other an
A new book on E?ypt is soon to appear,
written by Blanchard Jerrold, with tho
rather peculiar title, "The Belgium of tho
Elsie Dinsmore (or the Elsie books as
they are more familiarly known) by Martha
Finley, (Farquhcrson) have just been, re
ceived at the Public Library. These books
are especially recommended to young girls
with the hopo they may prove pleasant
companions and friends. To those now
treading the same portion of life's path
way a useful example, particularly in her
filial love and obedience.
As the TauchniU edition was the first in
voice of books purchased for the Library
of this city, tho following notes from the
Atlantic Monthly may prove interesting to
our readers: Ol the history of modern civ
ilizution ever comes to be written from the
impartial heights of some newer and braver
world, it will surely contain a paragraph
upon the kindly influence ot aGerman pub
lisher's steadfast enterprise. About the
year 1810 Mr. Bernard Taiichnitz, of Lelp
sic, began tho publication of the works of
current Enjlish authors in neat handy vol
umes, which were clearly printed, and Bold
upon the continent of Europo at a much
lower price than the same works in England
There wa3 no copyright treaty between
England and Saxony, and the English au
thor and publisher could not interfere with
the salo of Mr. Tauchnitz's reprints; the
English speaking resident or traveler was
delighted at finding so easy an access to
the latest and best English literature. Mr.
Tmichnitz jiHtihVI tho praise which ho re
ceived from travelers by using a wiso dis-
crimicition in his choice of hooks. The en-
terpri is y i i ' i uness one but was marked
by such good taste, fairness of dealing, that
it won for its projector a distinguished
place in tho history of English literature,
lie wa-i created Biron Tsuchuitz but was
not in the least spoiled by the honor. When
In had published nine hundred and ninety
nine volumes ho commemorated the event
by making tho thousandth an edition of
the New Testament, under tho editorship
of tho eminent scholar Constantino von
Yischendorf. The Tauchnitz edition is in-
deed a singular monument to sound judg
ment. Though forty years havo elapsed
since tho publication of the first volume, tho
publisher has never seen fit to chango the
drnss of his hooks, aud the public with all
Its clutigo of taste, fin Is as good reason to
like tho style now as it did forty yoars ago.

miring friends to W. B. Shattuc, a
Cleveland railroad man, another rail
road man, Dan Holmes, was selected

Gkira-Milk and Flaxseed for Calves.
Skim-milk and grass alone will raiso
good calves, if the milk is abundant and
not ullovvcd to get too sour. When too
.sour, it causes calves to scour, and thus
coiintenu ts its good effort. Skim-milk
is wflll adapted to raising heifers for tho
dairy, as it U rich in albuminoids nnd
phonphate of lime, togivo astrong mus
"cularand bony development. A little
moru oil wouhl Improve it, und for this
purpose flaxseed is a cheap addition, ef
fectually replacing the cream skimmed
oil', Tho largo percentage of oil it eon
tairis provcnlH constipation, as well bs
scouring. Flaxseed should bo boiled in
four times its bulk of water, and it then
forms a gelatinous mns, A littlo of
this say, ft tablonpooiiful of tho jolly
mixed with wunn skim-milk, is enough
for a calf from one to threo weeks old.
As tho calf grows older, this amount is
increased. If oil meal is used, it should
bo li tweed meal, and not cotton -need
meal, for calves. Cotton-scod meal Is
not so easy of digestion Is rathor con
stipatingthus adds to this quality in
skim-milk. With tho skim-milk and
flaxseed we raised grade Jersey hoifor
calves to flvo hundred pounds' weight At
six and seven months old, lost season.
It is doubtful if thny would have been
butter fed on now ruiik. , When the milk
comes short, linscod moal mar Tory
profitably be added. A'atona Liv
