A happy Mound City bride writes
home to her parents: "John and I have

Col. Taylor has had a force of men at
work for several days, on the county road,
from Pulaski county end and bad it put in
excellent repair. The county board has
done likewise from this end and persons
who were over the road yesterday reported
that it wis in good condition, all along,
being almost as smooth and dry as a stone
pavement, male so by the scraper with
which it was opperatud upon. People who
would visit Mound City to-day, in buggies
will find the county road a splendid drive
all Oie way. if it doesn't rain.
The oldest man within a hundred
miles ot Cairo lives within about fifteen
miles from Cairo in this county, not in
Kentucky as stated by the Argus a short
time ago. He is in tho employ of Sheriff
Hodges; his name is Uncle Joe, just Old
Uncle Joe, and he is over one hundred and
five years old. He belonged to President
Tyler and is able to give that gentleman's
entire history in detail. In view of the fact
that he cannot read a letter, his acquain
tance with President Tyler's history seems
to confirm his story. The old fellow shows
his extreme ago in every way but one he
is rem irkably active. lie is a good cook
ami prepares sumptuous meals for the
sheriff and his friends when they come for
a few days.
In correcting a rumor afloat in Padu-
cah, that some of the Cairo excursionists
while there Sunday engaged in a bar-room
fight, the Nuws of that city takes occassion
to say that "the party from Cairo, it should
be remarked, conducted themselves in every
respect like the ladies and gentlemen they
evidently were." Of Prof. Storer's band,
which accompanied tho excursion and
played some pieces while in Paducah, the
same paper says: "That was a very fine
bund which accompanied the Cairo excur
sioiiiHts yesterday. Our people would like
to hear its music upon our streets again."
The boys deserve this praise, for they are
striving hard to become perfect and are
succeeding to tho delight of all who occa
sionally have tho pkasuro of listening to
To our demand for one iota of proof,
that the Argus' infamous charges against re-
Hponsiblo men were not tho wild ravings of
a weak mind maddened, or tho hypocritical
outgivings or a morconary mind, tho pliant
tixdofan organization of designing rascals,
tho Argus simply quotes tho self-condemning
remark of Ben Butler, whon he pleaded
KUlltyto stealing tho spoons,!, e. "Shoot
fllo, don't bodder me." It ia evident that
tho Argus is desirous of withdrawing from
tho Hold at any cost. It has doubtless
learned now what sensible pooplu saw all
along, that the animal it was riding with
bo much gusto for several weeks, instead of
being a noble specimen of the well-known
quadruped of tho genu Equus, is really
nothing but a "purp," and a very ugly, very
mean, very mangy little beast, of a sort of
crushed-ecg (berry) color, at that. It is
alright. We are sitislied. If, after this
cowardly retreat, tho Argus can look Mr.
Linegar openly iu tho face without blushing
clear back of its ears in all the colors oi
the latest fashion-plate, it has considera
bly more genuine "gall" than the ordinary
raducah News: "Among tho other
pleasant people who came up lroia Cairo
with the excursion yesterday were Mr. L.
A. Phelps and his estimable wife. Years
ago, before the hair of the writer began to
show signs of being frost-bitten, Mr.
Phelps and himself ran over the praries of
Iowa together and enjoyed themselves in
the most approved boyhood fashion. We
may, perhaps, be pardoned for the remark
that the pleasure of again grasping our old
friend and companion by the hand brought
back, most forcibly, memories of the halcy
on days of life's springtime. Mr. Phelps
is a successful photographer in the Egypti
an metropolis. It is to be hoped that his
first visit to Paducah will not be his last.
Our latch-string will always bo on the out
side of the door for him aud his."
APPEARANCES A HE DECEIVING.
An unusually graphic incident, proving
the truth of the above caption, has recent
ly been facetiously, as truely, illustrated
on our streets; and especially in our finest
dry -goods houses.
Before giving the anecdote, we will pre
face tho incident, by philosophizing a little,
upon the "paying policy," of beiag polite
and considerate to all who approach, or
pus us upon the highway of life. Even
behind tho scenes, where the entres and
cues are ot seemingly less importance to
our individual success and satisfaction,
human thoughtfulnes and kindness, leave
the weight in favor of holding our fiuancia
and social prosperity at par, though our
conscience may be entirely beyond any re
sponse to creature sympathy. To the man
or woman, who has reached the last score
of the nineteenth century, and find them
selves upon a plain from which they can
disinterestedly look down into the vortex
of thoughtless extravagance and unre
strained folly ol the present generation, a
most lamentable condition and prospect of
tho submersion and absorption. First of
everything terrestial into the one concen
trated and clearly defined thought of money-
"getting" not money making but money
"getting" is plainly the play. The stars
on the stage are those who "get" the mott
and all desire to be "stars." Notice the
movements of the players: To the right
passes a woman who has blasted her hus
band's financial credit that she may appear
before tho footlights more superbly arrayed,
than the "leading lady," whose bank ac
count is above danger. There at the left,
shifting, discontentedly peeps a milk maid,
whose monthly wages is but ten dollars.
Yet sho pays a dressmaker $9 for 6imp!y
the making up of it $12 dress pattern.
Philosophers will probably be able to find
the necessary "balance" wanting in the
bill, without the aid ot a mathematician.
Before us in the middle opening, we sec a
mechanic's daughter; she must have "panier
suit" "it is the style," and sink or float
it has to be obtained and paid for. Soon
"floating" in the distance and disappearing
down the abyss, we get a last glimps of
the poor panier suit.
Further to the left we behold a seething
and frothing mass of loud neckties, slim
canes, fast horses, darkened windows, blue
coats, silver stars, pallid faces and prison
bars! while the blue gloaming of the elec
tric light brings into bonafide materializa
tion, the well defined outline3 of lost credit,
lost character and lost civilization I The
paint now stands boldly out. Old fashion
ed truth, old time simplicity, old home
stead courtesy and old human kindness are
all engulfed, and gone to the bottom of the
sea of fastness and folly! The cinical
waters of suspicion have evaporated -the
trustful bay of human confidence And the
few marriners unsophisticated enough to
look to the high house of
modern principle for succor, finds
its windows broken, its tower
totering, its tall tolling and its lamp emit
ting only rays of coldest selfishness I So
much lor the prologue. Now for tho epi
logue. Cairo in order to not bo behind
Chicago, in her lack of discretion and dis
crimination permits herself to make some
egregions mistakes which fact leads to the
illustration referred to as a 'demonstration
that "appearances are oftenes deceitful."
Our citizens, and particularly gome of our
dry goods clerks may remember seeing on
our streets during tho past ten days, a ludy
whose dress indicated a disregard for pre
vailing fashions and whose independent
walk aud conversation, showed that she
know her own business and was attending
to it. Finding it necessary to wait a few
days upon the movement of some artlzans,
who were doing some work for her, she de
cidod to spend the intervening timo in look
ing through our different retail houses with
a view of purchasing a rather large bill of
goods upon the last day of her stay ia tho
city. Obscrvo thesequal! When eutering
the stores with but one exception, i. o.
Mrs. Williams, milliner, sho found that hor
dress was to tho attending clork, an expo
nent of her purse. Sho wore nothing tine
and,conseqnoutly was not expected to buy
anything fino. While the attention given
ber, was in exact proportion to the expec
tation felt. Yet she really wished to buy
some fine goods; and had in her possession
