Davidson's business grew too large for
his quarters and some tima ago he found
himself compelled to make a warehouse of
an adjoining store room, in which to keep
his Htock of stoves. House-keepers will
find anything from a tindipper to a hotel
range; trim a small heating to the largest
cooking stove or finest basf-burner; whatj
ever is needed for outfit can be found at
Davidson's, and his business is not confined
to wooden, jananod, tin or iron hollow
ware, etc., large as that branch is, but his
jobbing work has grown in proportion.
His roofs always give satisfaction; his pipes
never leak; he Is always ready for orders in
anything in the tin or sheet iron line, and
his ability to do work, his customers will
find, has always kept up with the demand.
On the 10th instant, the stock holders

throughout very enthusiastic. There were
many expressions of satisfaction at the re
sult of tho year's business, and compli
ments were passed liberally upon the man
agement by nearly all present. So well
satisfied wero the stockholders with tho fi

CULTURE AND SWINE EVERY
WHERE. I often feel that the boys of Now'eres
land are not badly off, shut up sale, each
one in his own cask, with nothing to do
but take what is offered, whether it be for
his physical or mental good. So situated
their faults are not placed upon the outer
world. To all appearances they are quiet,
well-behaved youngsters, who never make
faces, call names! pull hair, or do anything
but absorb food aud learning, and grow
and develop into that higher life, that up
per stratum, rather that topmost layer, for
which all boys yearn; that gratifying, soul
satisfying period in which they may don
long-skirted coats and stiff-rimmed hats
and be called men.
Of course, probably every boy of them
does scowl frightfully and may even call
his preceptors ring-tailed baboons. But
then, as before intimated, nobody knows it
but himself; therefore, nobody is annoyed
by it. Not so is it on this continent. The
foibles of somo of us are painfully apparent
at times. Witness recent communications,
"Ideal" and otherwise, in The Bullktis's
columns, by which wp judge that the
ckeiie db la creme of Cairo is considera
bly agitated. The agitation seems to cur
dle it, too; or was it already sour and ready
to be churned, just like ordinary cream I
For ideally intellectual persons to reach
such a condition is quite astonishing and
their preseut perturbed state tends to disa
buse rustic minds of the idea that "educa
tional advantages of a high order" are so
very elevating, after all.
For eximple, professors of music from
abroad induct a scientific method of man
aging your lips in singing; and no sooner
do you begin to rival a flock of mocking
birds, than along come elecutionists to furth
er drill your vocal chords. This last ren
drr your articulation distinct, clear and
p.eiilcg to cultivated cars, and as a result,
yon all can aettlo your grocers' bills in
chest-tones deep enough for a bass-drum
and order soda water, r-raspberry flavor
with a r-rolling tr-rill that would do cr-red-it
to a snare dr-rum. These advantages
and many others, and yet some of you
are not happy.
Why this ecstasy of unblissfulness among
the chosen? Hve they become faint at
heart upou realizing the distance their frail
parachute, so tenderly fashioned, has blown
from the great balloon of eastern culture?
And do they moau because adverse breezes
dropped it so far into the barbarous west?
No doubt the pretty prattle about life
woik, tho molecular system, susceptibility
of education, the subjective objective capa
bilities of mind, and the intensely utter
inefftbility of delight derived from perusing
Tboreau and Emerson, all lose an apprecia
ble incandescene this far from the transcen
dentalism of the fountain-head.
Hence the complaints of the lack of east
ern culture, eastern refinement and eastern
breadth ot intellect. What are those con
crete attributes? Of what import is that
word eastern? Is thero something peculiar
ly edifying in the "eastern" mode? I search
the lexicons in vain for definitions of that
sort of refinement and breadth; tho poor
benighted compilers evidently thought
with me, that refinement is refinement, ir
respective of locality, among tho truly re
fined of really btoad intellect. Yet we
can not well deny the existence of what wo
hear of on all sides.
Yes, there must bo something decidedly
peculiar about a culture that allows tho
roughly educated, accomplished girls of
high social standing, to flirt and elope
with their father's coachman, and enact
romances with barbers and news-boys.
There is a slight difference, to put it mildly,
between the sort of refinement that allows
western feet to be shod with goat-skin or
cowhide, and the varioty that impels tho
eastern pedal extremities to spurn such un
tutorod stuff for comfortable slippers and
shapely buskins madoofthe skins of tho
animals intelligent ones-slaughtered at
One roan takes up a claim in a certain
portion of Dacotah; another buys in a par
ticular county ot Florida; a third finds it
possible to reconcile hit wifo to living
Wisconsin or Michigan. Why? Because
some families from the east, consequently
of the rcqulrod culture, had gone- there bo
foro thorn. Therefore lite in Cairo, lor tha
same reason, should not be insupportable,
a large number of the citizens having im
migrated from the same classic region, or
thereabouts. Of this number there are

seem disparaging to her as compared with
Cache Bottom; but while I must remark
that the little city Is by no means kn infant

There was a very general belief among
people here that the severe clap of thunder
heard here several nights ago struck some
where in the city, but no one bad been
able to find the spot, until last evening,
when, by a mere accident, a gentleman
standing near the base of the Democratic
flag-pole, on Ohio levee, noticed a huge
rent in the northerly side of the pole, ex
tending from the point at which a wire guy
rope is attached down into the ground.
The wire has been loosened, and hangs
close to the pole ; and it seems that the
electricity glided down the wire until it
came in contact with the pole and then
made its way down into the gn und en
that, plowing into the wood several
inches deep and tearing it into shreds. The
split is evidently of very recent occur
rence; hence, tho reasonable conclusion
that Wednesday night's thunderbolt made
it. Tho damage to the pole is not so as to
render it unsafe.
