Every citizen ought to tako some pride in
the appearance of the walk and street in
front of his premises, and koep them in a
condition not obstructive or offensive to
pedestrians. The chief is, however, persis
tent in his efforts to carry out tbe wishes
of the administration. Besides superin
tending the work of improving tho sani
tary condition of the city, he manages to
keep the forgetful and stubborn obstructors
and beBuiirchura of walks and streets also
down to business. '
Tho city's stone wall was finished last
evening. Its top is about three foet below
the top of tho levee. It has the sppoarance
of being a very substantial pieco of work,
certain to last as long as it needs to, if a
little revetment is constructed at one or two
littlo places at its base, in order to prevent
washing by the river. A sign has been
put up, warning captains of steamboats
not to land against the wall. The Illinois
Central company has done what filling is
necessary to make a firm bed for its outside
track, but it will finish the job when it be
gins raising the tracks below Fourteenth
The revival meetings at the Baptist
church opened with a very good attendance
last evening. The time between :43 and
8 o'clock was occupied by introducing re
marks and prayer by the pastor, and sing

Rev. D. I. Purser preached a very impres
sive discourse, taking the parable of "the
ten virgins" as the basis of his rvuiarka.
These he said represented two classes of
people, in tho world the christians and
the unbelievers; those who aw prepared
and thivso who are not. Tluvw ho would
be saved and those would be Wt. As in
the pirable, all were represented as slum

unconcerned about their condition, but

literary programme consisted excluaively
of a dis'iuhnion upon a matter of much im
portance to Cairo, viz? "Is slpe-watcr
beneficial to Cairo ami should the authori
ties tuke measures to retain it permanently
within the city limits," On the affirmative
were Miss Maud RittenhouHc, Mr. Bpear
and Mr. McDowell; negative, Mr. Geo.
O'llara, Mr. II. Wells. Mrs. McDowal. The
discussion was very interestiriK, chiefly be
cause it was humorous. The tiancrs of
Miss Rittunhouse and Mr. Hpear created
most arnusomeut. The club failed to de
cide the question, however, dueminj; tho
arguments of each side too slrongtobe
overcomu by thoso of tho other, and Captain
Shields suggested that tho question bo
"laid upon the table," intimatinir shyly at
the same time, that he thought the atllrma
live had the advantage. In conclusion, Miss

with a solo, entitled "The Brldie." while
the rest of tho company spent an hour

HOT WATER AS A. MEDICINE FOR
DYSPEPSIA AND CONSUMPTION.
A young man, who was compelled to re
sign his position in ono of the public
schools of New Yorkjiecause he was break
ing down with consumption, and who Lai
ever since boen battling fur liie, although
with little apparent prospect o recover, was
encountered in a Broadway restaurant.
"I see," he said, "that you seem sur
prised at my improvod appearance. No
doubt you wonder what could have caused
such a change. Well, it was a very sim
ple remedy nothing but hot wator."
"You remember my telling you that I
had all of the usual remedies. I consulted

largo fees. I went to the Adirondacks in
the summer and to Florida in tbe winter;
but none of theso things did me any sub
stantial good. I lost ground steadily,
rew to be almost a skeleton, and had the
worst symptoms of a consumptive whose
end is near at band. At that juncture a
friend told me that he had heard of cures
being effected by driuking hot wator.
I consulted a physician who had paid
special attention to this hot water cure, and
was using it with many patients. Ho said :
The old school practitioners have tried for
years to cure consumption, but they aro as
far from doing it as ever.
"'Now, the only rational explanation of
consumption is that it results from defec
tive nutrition. It is always accompanied
by mal assimilation of food. In nearly
every case the stomach is the seat of a for-
mentatiou that necessarily prevents proper
digestion. The first thing to do is to re
move that fermentation and put the stom
ach into a condition to receive food and
dispose ot it properly. This is effected by
taking into the stomach, as hot as it can be
borne, an hour before each meal. This
leaves the stomach clcau and pure; then
rut into the stomach food that is in the
highest degree nutritious and the least dis
posed to fermentation, Xo food answers
this description better than tender beef.
A little etale bread may be eaten with it.
Drink nothing but pure water, and as little
of that at meals as possible. Vegetables,
pastry, sweets, tea, coffee and alcoholic
lunar mut be avoided. Put tender beef
into a clean and pure stomach three
times a dat. and the svstera will be
fortified ard built up until tho wasting
away, that is the chief feature of consump
tion, ceases and recuperation sets in."

aome hours were spent in the usual way
in congratulations and making and disus

Mr. and Mrs. Ellis left this morning on

whence they will go to St. Paul and some

Both parties to this pleasant affair are
