Dbik Sik: lioco'nizinj; the fact that
t here is to a certain extent, a mutual depen
dency existing between the professions of
pharmacy and medicine, and feeling that a
better understanding of the function and
duties of tho two profession should be re
cognized and adhered to, we, of the medi
cal profession of Cai:o, object to the fre
quent habit of druggists or thU city, of
diagnosing diseases and piescribiu medi
cines, for the following reasons :
First. The science of pharmacy does
not include a knowledge of the science of
Second. You are violating the medical
practice act, by so doiuj, and robbing the
physicians of their leyetimate business.
Third. You are practising deception
upon the sick; therefore we ask you to ad
bere to tho law guvcruiug the practice of
Another grievance to which we respectj
fully auk yuur attention, is the matter of
refilling prescritions without authority ot
the physicians who have wrilen them. The
above practice is injurious to both patieut
and physicians; tho patient often sutlcrinir
lrom the effects of improper medicine, and
tlie physician because he ih practically
held responsible for tho action of the modi,
cine he did not prescribe.
Again we hold that the original owner
of the prescription loses his ownership in
the same, s uoou as it is once rilled and
placed on (He, and that he hug no right to
demand that it be taken from the ti to and
be refilled, except by the order of the pro
Bciibing physicians. We therefore ask
you to discontinue tho practice.
After due deliberation, wn the under
signed members of the "Medical Associa
tion of Cairo" have resolved not to patron
iis directly or indirectly, any druggist,
who shall after thin date, bo known to pre
scribe for any one requiring the services of
a physician, or who shall refill or duplicate
prescriptions without the written or verbal
authority of the physician. Respectfully,

tho car to direct tho work of uulo'iding thy

Mr. Jacob Kline's artesian well is still
an object of interest to citizens generally,
who would like to see it successful. Two
hundred und twelve feet of pipe was
driven down into the ground, and there
tho work stopped some months ago because
tho contractor, Mr. Gerould, became dis
couraged m: ! abandoned tho job. But a

ter is to av-ni ue and carry out tho contract

therefore provide the necesuory steam en
gine aud machinery tocoutiuuo driving the
well until a largo supply ot good water
shall be obtained. It is thought that but
fifteen or twenty fort further down will give
such a supply.
News received finn Springfield
within the list few days by Chairman
C. N. Hughes, of tho Republican central
committee, is to tho effect that iu tho raco
for the United States senatorship to suc
ceed David D tvis, Gouenil Green B. Raum
is Io: ing ground und General Oglesby is
gaiuiug what tho former loses. General
Raum is not so much a man of thu
people as Oglesby is. Ho has been holding
himself aloof pretty much, has been opunly
posing for the seuatorship at a distance
from the people and become
estranged fiom them. Oglosby has douo
"hoxecly deeferent'' from this. Ho has
been moviug about slyly among tho poople
and their leaders and has boon arranging
things for himself. General Raum.
is undoubtedly tho "smarter"
of tho two it takes but
coinpiwativoly IiUle to bo that ;but that
will not count for muidi in the contest be
fore tho Thirty-third general assembly. In
ft fight between brains and the Republican
machine, iu which a machiuo made Repub
lican legislature has to decide, tho former
stands but littlo chance of recognition.
There is nti unusually large number of
hard-looking loungers in tho city, who in
fest tho public thoroughfares wherever otic
may turn, and Keep moving luzily and sus
piciously about eyeing every ono they meet
with a sort of "We'd like to-cidch-you-iilono-iu-the-dark"
look, which makes ono
feel like becoming a walking battery, or
carrying a sign about on one's back in
scribed, "Look out for dyuamite." The
follows are all, or nearly all, riverniun who
are laid up at this point from boats which,
during this season of the year, must recog
nize Cairo as tho head of navigation. But
considering all this, tho city is remarkably
quiet. There has beeu very little or no dis
turbance in tho city for two weeks past, no
crimes of a serious character at all. Tho
police magistrate's offico has been closed
all this week, and the city Jail contains
only a few fellows who are sorv out
sentences for drunkenness, mildly disor
derly conduct or offensive language, aud
aro doing somo healthy work on
tho streets. It would seem that
cither the "follows11 referred to are not
what they scum, or that tho officers are
too active for them. AVe aro inclined to
believe that tho latter is tho case.
A water supply pipe, two and a half
inches in diameter, is being forced diagon
ally through Ohio levee, beginning on the
outer slopo opposito Tho Halliday and aim
ing to come forth in a trench near the
boiler-house of the Cairo Distilled Water
Ice Company, at a depth of eighteen foot
below tho surface of tho ground there. Tho
distance from the point of beginning out
side of tho levee, to where it is to connect
with the ico factory1 pumping apparatus
inside, is about five hundred feet. On
Monday or Tuesday about ono hundred aud
fifty feet had been forced iuto tho levee,
and there tho work was then stopped in
order to await the arrival of strouger
couplings, which it was thought ad
visable to get because tho strain
upon the pipe was so great that
somo of the coiipliugs in use were thought
to be too light to utand it. This pipe
will supply tho water only for tho boilers,
but fVir tho ico tank, watur will bo ob
tained from two drive-wella which tho com
pany intends yet to sink. One of these
wells is to be seventy feet deep, the other
comiderably deeper. One reason why drive
well water is preferred to river water for
the manufacture of ice is that tho former
is considerably cooler than the latter; aud
tho rcuson why tho company will have two
dtive-welW b, that there may bo less danger
ot a failure of tho supply of water because
of the dis-rrder of the source. The new
couplings aro expected to arrive to-day and
then the work on tho boiler supply
pipe will be resumed. Mr. Charles
Fjre haschatge of tnis work.
-To Tin: Bulletin's few line con
gratulating the Argus upon it success dur
ing its four years' of life just closed and ex
pressing a wish for tho continuaco of the
sanie, the latter psper makes the following
explanatoiy reply, in which it tells some
forcible truths about the newspaper btni
ut in Cairo: 'The Bulletin hs3 our
thank for its expression of good will,
which is most sincerely reciprocated ; but
for fear that "midget" may be exaggerated
in tli ' minds of readers, we may suy thnt it
amounts to a very modest Income, which is
Well e unci by the performance of a great
variety of duties and hard work. So far
as th-j Ar"js has mot with success, the fact
has been due chiefly to the course of its
conductors, in performing as much of the
labor required ou it themselves as is prac
ticable. Every pet son connected with it
is an energetic persistent worker, and no
expenditure is permitted for display or
grandeur, In any city tho size of Cairo
no newspaper office can support ornamen
tal appeudages. The RcLLETtN office, we
notice, recognizes this fact and acts upon
it, an I hence ito unusual financial success
in a great measure, we presume. Tho nows
paper f;iihui iu Cairo havo been numerous,
The Bulletin and Argus being thu remains
of many experiments in that line of busi
litis. S uno have failed from lack of indus
try and judgment iu their conductors, some
from too much enterprise; for bo it known,
that Hie largest iucomo h paper can expoct
to realize in Cairo will not admit of more
than a small fraction of tho outlay re
ijuired by metropolitan newspaper enter
prises. And as net income, tho most sue
ciMtnl publisher hero must bo content with
that of the average shop keeper or inorhsn
ir." Orders hive beou issued by Mayor
Thistlewood to tho police force ol the city
to enforce, t a certain extent, tho ordinan
ces against switching an! permitting tats
to stand upon the tracks above Second
street on the Commercial avuuuo tracks of
tho Wabash, St, Louis and Pacific railroad.
Tim orders do not aim to interfere with the
minting buck and forth of trains at all, but
do sun to prevent in future the making up
of b aius anyw hero above Second street on
thu tracks mentioned. These orders are
prompted by a Btrong prcssuro from proper
ty owiurs in tho lower portiou of tho city
and other too, who havo found the switch
ing carriod on from Sixth and Sev
enth utrects down an upmost
unbearable daily nuisance. Tiio largo busi
ness of tho compauy has compelled it to do
an uiiHiml amount of switching of late,
which was doubtless very satisfactory to
tho company but tho rovorso to those whom
tho company's increased business brought
greater inconvenienco and injury. Cairo
is a lurgo and growing railroad cen
tre; a very largo percentage of it btisiuess
activity comes from tho seven or eight
railroads which operate iu our midst. Cairo
owes much of its present prosperity to her
railroads and will probably owe much ol
her future prosperity to thu same cause. Il
is to Cairo's interest that her railtoads
should prosper, and all reasonable allow
ance nnd concessions should ho, aid doubt
less will bo made by tho peoplo nnd tho
council in order to promote- the railroad in
terests of thu city. But in doing such a very
laudable thing, tho interests of citizens aud
of the city must not bo sacrificed. A reason
able observance of tho ordinances must be
required by the people and tho authorities,
and will doubtless bo readily yielded by
the companies if earnestly asked to do so.

It is generally coi;eotled that manufac
tories, more than any other branch of in
dustry, contribute to the building up and
prosperity of any place. For this reason
tho Vulcan Iron works are worthy of rpe-
cial mention as one ot the most important j
enterprises of Cairo. These works were
established here by Mr. John T. Rennio 21
yiars ago, wdio built up a large aud flour
ishing business w hii.ii ho carried on for 17
years. About four years ago misfortune
overtook him in the destruction of his
works by fire, by which disaster he lost
everything, not having a dollar of insur
ance. Ho was left with nothing, but his
numerous friends came to his aid, promi
nent among wh un were the Messrs. Halli
day, These frien Is, kn iwing Mr- Rmnie's
pluck and perseverance, were willling to
place a portion of tlie'r menus Ht his dis
posal, believing he would oou recover by
his skill aud industry all he hail loot. In
this they were not mistaken. His works
aro now among the Urgent in southern Il
linois, and he is doing a very flourishing
business, extending over the entire -soiith
aud a portion of the northwest. Ho is en
larging his work, having j'r-t built a new
foundry, IIu manufactures all kinds of
forglngs, casting; and machiuery. Ho also
repairs engines and machinery. Ho makes
a specialty of steamboat and mill yirk.
TEXAS & ST. LOUIS It. R.
Work is progressing ou the Texas & St.
Louis railway in Arkansas so satisfactorily
that there seems no doubt but that the lino
will bo completed through that state by
the end of tho present yer if not sooner.
Tho building of this lino has been unusual
ly rapid, for within the past fourteen
months over -100 nr.les of road have been
laid. Including the Missouri division
which was formerly the Little River and
Arkansas Valley road and extended when
purchased by tli; T. & St. L. there are
more than 140 miles at this end of tho line
iu operation, aud already tbo counties
through which tho line passes arc begin
ning to show the moat active signs of im
provement and development.
Tho Missouri portion of the line is be
tween New Madrid and Mai Ion, the latter
town beiug tho county seat of Dunklin, the
banner cotton-producing cottuty of the
state. Tho shipments of cotton from Mai
duu over the narrow -gauge are ringing
from ono to three car-loads per day. The
flat curs will haul from 40 to 45 bales ol
cotton, the box cars not quite io much.
This cotton is all coming U St. Louie, and
as tho season advance the receipts of the
staple from that portiou of the state will
The most difficult work that has been
dono and is now in progress is tho
construction of tho bridges across tho rivers
in Aikans.as. Of the streams passed thero
are navigable rivers, viz: the St. Francis,
the White, the Arkansas, tho Ouachita aud
tho Hod. Iron bridges will span each.
The bridge over the Arkansas will bo the
largest structure of tho Kind south of St.
Louis. Tho driw span 850 foot iu length,
will be entirely of iron, and the remaining
spans will bo combination -iron and wood
resting oa iron piers, which havo been
sunk 65 feot below tho rivor bod. The
total length of this bridgo will bo nbout
1,700 feot. , It will be fiuishod boforo the
end of next month, according to tho state
ment of tho builders; aud the bridge over
tho other rivers metitioned will also bo iu
order at that time.
The closing of tho gap in Arkansas will
give an unbroken or through lino between
Bird's Point, opposlle Cairo, III., and
Gatusvillo, Tex., via Wuoo, a distauco of
753 miles. Tho Texas division, which has
been iu operation about two years, is doing
a remarkably good business for so young a
road. The earnings of this division for tho
month of October wero 53,850; au in
crease over the samu month of mt year
of 30,000. ' Tho earnings of tho same
division lor tho first fourteen days of
November wero $37,343,08. Compared
with last year the incroaso for thu first week
in November was $11,000.
During October there were haulod over
tho Texas branch of tho line 17,750 bales
of cotton, nearly all of which went to OaU
vestou. The reason of this was, tho Texas
and St. Louis could get no outlet from
Texas to this city. Over a year ago the
Iron Mountain road issued an order to its
agents not to take any of the Narrow-gauge
line's freight, except at full local rates.
Some months before that tho president of
tho Iron Mountain Epoke in the most com
plimoLtary terms of tho Narrow-gaugo iu
his annual report, and alluded to tho man
agement in glowing terms; but as soon as
the Texas and St. Lou-b legan to make ar
rangements to build through Arkansas, tho
order alluded to was issued. That is why
Col. Paramoru and bis associates havo put
forth such strenuous efforts to complete tho
line through tho statu of Arkansas. In
that state the lino is now in operation to
Jonesboro, aud within a few days the track
will reach Clarendon, ou White liver.
There being no compresses in tho- portion
of Arkansas through w hich tho lino is now
being operated, all tho cotton being
shipped out comes direct to this market,
and-will be compressed at tho new works
in East St. Louis.
The Indianapolis and St. Louis, as is
generally known, has a traffic agreement
with tho Cairo Short Lioo and tho Illinois
Central, and so far this season has given
these connections something like 1,600 cars
of freight from thn Arkansas division.
Considerable lumber is being brought out
of that country, much of it being walnut,
for the Ea.-tern marktt. It is being ship
ped in logs as well as iu tho sawed State.
Tho bulk of the other freight is cotton.
From a business muu connected with the
road who recently returned fr -m a tup
through that portion of Arkansas traversed
by tho Texas and St. L mis, il ia learned
that the outlook for trade in that section is'
very fl attoring, Ho says the road will have
all that it can do to handle the freight along
tho route, and he is of the opinion that the
Narrow-guage will prove one of the most
valuable lines to the business interests of
Cairo and St. Louis ever constructed.
