A resolution to prohibit corporal
punishment in the public schools of St.
Louis, failed to receive the endorsement of
the board of education of that city. A sim
ilar movement was talked of here and is
still contemplated by the board if we were
correctly informed, with a fair prospect of
abolishing it in the Cairo schools. Corporal
punishment in the public schools is always
obnoxious and ought to be abolished. If a
good toacher can not control a scholar by
other rules more consistant with the civili
zation of our day, expulsion ought to be re
sorted to and this should be the extent of a
teachers' power over hie pupils.
The extraordinary demand lor informa

Police business at Mound City is said
to have been lively on Memorial Day. The
victims of tho law were, in most cases, car
riers of concealed weapons, who were spot
ted by lK)ys in the employ of the officers
and then "pulled" and fined the customary
23 and costs. While a number of fellows
were thus ''taken in" there were several,
one that we know of, who were missed, but
who ought not to have been. Just as the
next to last train started from the Mound
City depot for up the road, a commotion oc-
curred on the train, caused by two men
rushing through the cars, one chasing tbe
other with a drawn and cocked revolver
and with imprecations loud and deep. Tbe
chase continued through the entire train
until the last platlorm of the last car was
reached when tbe pursued leaped from tho
platform just as his pursuer reached it

CAIRO'S MEMORIAL DAY.
Yesterday was what may be properly
termed. Cairo's annual Decoration Day,
both by reason of the occasion and the man
ner in which it was celebrated. The occa
sion was the commencement exercises of the
High School graduating class, the most im
portant event during a year in our public
schools; the celebration, at tbe Opera
House, consisted of the customary address
by the members of tbe class, music, and
The auditorium of the Opera House was
taxed to its capacity, down stairs, up stairs
and in the gang ways, with the best people
of the city in holiday attire. Every ssat
was occupied and many were compelled to
stand. It was as fine an audience as ever
graced the Opera house, which tact showed
plainly that the best people of the city take
a deep interest in our public schools and
much pride in the results of the labor of
those employed in tbem.
On the stage thirteen chairs and a settee
wero placed in a semi-circle. The two
young men of the class, Thomas VVyatt Hal
liday and Robert Lee Stratton, occupied
the settee which stood in the centre, and
the young ladies, all wearing dresses of
white material, sat six on either siJe, while
one chair, that intended for Miss M-unio
Lemz, was vacant. Back of the class, on
the left, sat the school board and Prof. Clark,
on the right, a number of ladies, s una of
our fine musical talent, who were to execute
tbe musical part of the programme.
With one or two exceptions in the musi
cal parts, the programme as published was
carried out. It was opened with music on
the piano and clarionet by Miss Rida Corliss
and Prof. Storer, in which the performers
displayed that skill tor which they are
noted and admired in the community. A
short invocation was then pronounced by
Rev. Scarritt after which Miss Mary Zim
merman read her e,say, with salutatory, in
a loud, clear, 6teady voice, and with a calm
manner, that enabled the audience to hear
and understand every word. Thus fairly
opened, the exercises continued, without sn
unpleasant circumstance, one es9ty after
another by the members of tbe class as their
names were called by Prof. Clark, inter
spersed with music both vocal and instru
mental, until the end of the programme
wns reached, which was not until after 5
o'clock in the afternoon.
The essays and addresses were all short
and pithy productions, showing care in
their preparation and training on the part
of the authors. They were all well deliv
ered, the addresses by the young men par
ticularly so, and the authors received each
the hearty applause of tbe audience. But
the floral offerings sent to each member of
the class at the conclusion of his or her es
say or address were unusually lavish in
quantity and maguiticient in tbeir varied
forms and rich colors. They were present
ed to the membcra by little girls and boys
and placed at their feet, so that, when the
exercises were over and all bad received
their beautiful offerings, the class seemed
to be seated in a bed of flowers.
Miss Mamie Lentz being absent, Trof.
C'Urk read her essay, and the vacant chair
was filled with the beautiful flowers intend
ed for her.
The concluding feature of the exercises,
and by no mean 9 an unimportant or unin
teresting one, was the address of Prof.
Clark to the class, which was full of good
We regret our lack of space for a brief
notice deservedly complimentary of each

notable event.but when it is said that all did
well, reflecting credit not upon themselves
alone, but also upou those who for years
had been their faithful instructors, only the
expressed opinions of many who attended
the exercies are repeated.
The class of '83, the Tenth that lias is
sued from the Cairo High School roomi and
of the largest if not the largest, may look
back upon yesterday with much pleasure
always and doubtless will.

Tf!K TRYINO KXPERIKNCK OF A l'KOMINEM
MINISTER IN TUB THOI'ICS AMU
AT TBE NOHTIl..
To tbe Editor:
Tho following circumstances, drawn from
my personal experience, are so important
and really remarkable that I have felt call
ed upon to make them public. Their truth
can be amply verified ;
In 1875 I moved from Canton, St. Law
rence conuty, N. Y to Florida, which state
I intended to make my future residence. I
purchased a home on the banks of the St.
John's river and settled dowu, as I thought
fur life. Tho summer following the first
winter I was conscious of most peculiar
sensations which seemed to be tbe accom
paniment of a change of climate. I felt a
sinking at the pit of the stomach accom
panied by occasional dizziness and nausea,
. My head ached. My limbs paiucd me and
I had an oppressive sensti of weari
ness. I had a thirst for acids and ray ap
petite was weak and uncertaiu. My diges
tion was impaired and my food did not as
similate. At first I imagined it was the ef
fort of nature to become acclimated and so
I thought little of it. But my troubles in
creased until I became res'.lcs and feverish
and the physicians informed ma I was suf
fering from malarial fever. This continued
in spite of all the best physicians could do
and I kept growing steadily worse. In
the year 1880 my physicians informed me a
change of climate was absolutely necessary
that I could not survive another summer
in the south I determined to return north,
but not to the extreme portion, and so I
took up my residence at Upper Sandusky
in Central Ohio. The change did not
work the desired cure, and I again consult
ed physicians. I found they were unable
to effect a permanent cure, and when the
extreme warm weather of summer came on
I grew so much worse that I gave up all
hope. At that time I was suffering terri
bly. How bidly, only those can appreciate
who have contracted malarial disease in
tropical regions. It seemed as if death
would be a relief greater than any other
blessing. But notwithstanding all this, I
am happy to state that I am to-day a per
fectly well and healthy man. How I came
to recover so remarkably can bo understood
from the following card voluntarily pub
lished by me in the Sandusky, O. Republi
can, entitled :
HONOR TO WHOM HONOR IS DUE.
Kditous Republican: During my re
ceut visit to Upper Sandusky, so many in
quiries were made relative to what medi
cine, or conrse of treatment had brought
such a marked change in system, I feel it
to be due to the proprietors and to the pub
lic to state that Warner's Sate Kidney and
Liver Cure accomplished for me what
other me licines and physicians had failed
to do. The malarial poison which had
worked its way so thoroughly tlirough my
system during my five years residence in
Florida had brought me to the verge of
the grave, and physicians had pronounced
my case incurable; but that is not to be
wondered at, as it was undoubtedly one of
the worst on record. Hough Brothers, of
your city, called my attention to the medi
cine referred to, and induced me to try a
a few bottle. So marked was the charge
after four week's trial I continued its use,
and now, after three months, the cure is
complete. This is not written tor the bene
fit of Warner & Co , but for the public, and
especially for any person troubled with
malarial or bilious attacks."
Such is the statement I made, without
solicitation, after my recovery, and such I
stand by at the present moment. I am
convinced that Warner's Safe Cure is all it
is chimed to be, and as such deserves the
great favor it bos received. A remedy
which can cure the severest case of tropi
cal malaria of five years' standing certain
ly cwnot fail to cure those minor malarial
troubles which are so prevalent and yet so
serious. Alfred Day,

Three or four years ngo two residents
of the same town in Michigan who had
