He had left his valise in care of a
negro on a bont lying at the wharf, and this
was also recovered for him. A man who
while travelling among strangers will allow
himself to become helplessly drunk and
then lay around on wharf-boats or wander
around depots and permit himself to be
led anywhere by the first fellow that comes
along, is liable to bo robbed even in Cairo,
and it was only on account of the vigilance
of her small police force that he retains his
A boy named Early, a relative of Mr
Moses Fobs, aged about ten years, was shot
in the head by the accidental discharge of
a rifle used at a shooting gallery in the
park yesterday afternoon. The boy was
standing about twenty-five feet from a
table upon which the gun lay, loaded and
cocked. A man picked up the gun to
look at it or use it, and in so doing touch
ed the trigger and discharged the gun just
when it was in range of the boy's head,
The ball, a very small one, struck the boy
directly in the forehead, but fortunately
glanced off and made only a skin wound.
Everybody who had anything to sell at
the park yesterday made money. The
weather was favorablo for the refreshment
dealers nearly all day. llackmen and the
Street railroad, hnwevpr, did an enormous
business until after the storm came up.
Few people would venture to get to or from
tho park on toot, because of the hot sun.
But when the dark cloud hid old Sol
and a sharp breeze sunt clouds of dirt into
the air a grand rush was mado for down
town, tho hacks and street cars were all
packed nnd the remaining hundreds came
down on foot in a great hurry, confusion,
and exhuaated all of which proved at last
to haye been unnecessary.
From the number of letters bearing
only a two cent, stamp that have been drop
ped into the poBtoQke during the last few
days, it may be judged that quite a number
of people hero are under the impression
that the law reducing the latter jpostagc to
2c, per half ounce or fraction thereof went
into effect on the 1st of July. These people
are mistaken; the 2c. postage law does not
go into effect until tho 1st of October.
Two cents is less than "one full rato" for
sealed letters and such letters bearing only
2c. stamps, instead of being scot directly
to the dead-letter office as has heretofore
been the rule, will now, under the new
postal law which went into effect July 1st,
be held at this office for "additional post
age," and either the sender or addressee
will be notified of this fact and the letters
held until the demand is responded to.
A want that was sgain made strongly
manifest yesterday and will be made so
again to-day and to-morrow, is a spacious
amphitheatre in St. Mary's Park. The
shade provided was not near sufficient to
accommodate one-half the people who visit
ed the park and most of them were compel
led to stand or wander around for hours in
the hot sun. The result was that the danc
ing floor was crowded with persons who
wouldn't or couldn't dance, to the exclu
sion and discomfort of those who could
and would; the race-track was blockaded
continually and the tree-boxes and fences
and judges, stand crowded, by people who
were anxious to see the races and were then
able to get just a glimpse of tho horses as
they happened to pass them. The few
fortunate ones who hadsquatted downon the
grass in the shadow some little tree couldn't
see anything, andj were continually dis
turbed by persons in buggies who were
determined to got their horses in shady
places, The suggestion made in Mayor
Halliday's inagural address with reference
to this matter ought to be acted upon by
the council w ithout unnecessary delay, and
the action would meet with general ap
proval from the people.
The New Orleans committee on improv
ing the Mississippi has published an ad
dress whose substance is embodied in the
1. That the interests of this railfoad com
pany will be promoted by such improve
ment of the Mississippi river as will admit
a vessel of the largest war or commercial
draft to the port of New Orleans, boats
and barges of a draft not exceeding ten
feet to the ports of St. Louis and Cincin
nati, boats and barges of a draft not ex
ceeding five feet to the ports of St. Paul,
Minneapolis, Kansas City aud Pittsburg.
2. That tho representatives in congress
along the lino of this road would greatly
advance tho interests of their constituents
by supporting any appropriations which
may so improve the navigation of the Miss
issippi river as to comply with the condi
tions stated in the preceding proposition.
3. That a firm alliance between tho river
boats and barges, the ocean steamships and
tho railroads of the Mississippi valley
would organize an ocean and overland
transportation adequato to conduct any
domestic or foreign commerce whatever.
4. That tho railroad company authorize
tho appointment of a delegation to subscribe
on behalf of the company to tho terms of
the Mississippi river improvement associa
tion of St. Louis or New Orleans, and to
givo their aid to securo appropriations from
congress for tho permanent removal of ev
cry obstacle to the navigation of the Missis
sippi river along its whole navigable loogth.

Although but ono of Cairo's many oi
gunizatious undertook tho proper celebra
tious of what is comuiouly believed to bu
the nation's birthday, and although the
time allotted to this organization in which
to prepare for the grand event was very
short, yet the affair was a success in nearly
every way, even beyond the expectations of
tho loaders. Considering tliu short notice
given of tie intended celebration, the
crowds of people in attendance was a sur
prise. Strangers came in by boat-loads
aud train-loads from all directions, from
early morning unti I evening. The first del
cgation was from Hickman and way points,
biouglij here by tho steamer Ella Kim
brought at 5 o'clock and landed amid the
clarion notes of Hickman's own brass band
After this trains brought thorn in nearly
every hour. Tho St. Louis & Cairo, ihe
Wabash, the Mobile & Ohio, tho Missis
sippi Central, the Iron Mountain, the St.
Louis & Texas and the Illinois Central rail
roads, each had reduced the faro and
brought in hundreds of strangers from
cities and towns many miles away. The
ferrybout Three States was loaded down at
nearly every trip, and theGus Fowler came
in with a largo delegation from Paducah
and way points.
The procession was not bo imposing a one
as had been expected and as it ought to
have been. Of the five tire companies in
the city only one, the Roughs, turned out,
nnd of the many other organizations, ouly
one, The Halliday Guards, helped to swell
the pageuot. But such as it was, headed
by the band of which Cairo is justly proud
and followed by tho fire appaiatusof the
Roughs, it was very attractive. The Halli
day Guards looked splendid in their ele
gant uniforms and the firemen ditto.
The procession marched to the park,
deviating somewhat frcm the line of
march laid out in the programme because
of the extreme heat, followed and pre
ceded by throngs of citizens and strangers.
The park was reached about 11 o'clock and
the interesting ceremony appropriate to the
occasion was gone through with, evidently
to the genuine delight of tho assembled
multitude. Prof. Storer's band produced
several patriotic airs in its most charming
maimer, and then Miss Minnie Bri
bach, who has won quite an
enviable reputation among the Cairo pub
lic, as an elocutionist, read the Declaration
of Independence admirab'y and with visi
ble effect. Rector Davenport followed with
the oration for the day and he proved him
self to be a stump-speaker of more than
ordinary ability. His time for preparation
was very limited -in fact his effort may be
said to have been extemporaneous. His
oration was beautiful in thought, in deliv
ery fluent, in diction often eloquent. His
hearers were held deeply interested from
beginning to end.
Tho ceremony over, the peo
ple scattered over the park
to patronize the many refreshment
stands, and to witness ami take part in the
different games and means of amusement
provided for tliG.occasioo. In this way tbo
greater part of tho day was spent, but in
tho afternoon the jaccs monopolized the
attention for a while.
There was the usual delay about getting
fie horses Btarted and tho first race was not
run until long after the hour set for it.
But two were run when the black cloud
and wiud-storm interrupted the festivities
and nearly everybody was induced to come
down town and seek shelter from threaten
ed rain which fortunately did not come.
The first race, a running race, half mile
heat, best 3 in 5, that was to have been run
at 1 :30 did not take place until about 3
o'clock. The first prize $150, was won by
a Blitndville horse. The first prize, $75, in
the second race, pacing or trotting in har
ness, mile heat, best 2 iu 3, was won by
a Paducah horse. The threatened storm
broke up tho races at this point and in tho
confusion which followed it was impossi
ble to learn further particulars. The races
will be continued to-day, the weather per
mitting. One remark le fact in connection with the
celebration is that not a single arrest was
made throughout tho day and no disturb
ance occurred anywhere. Although the
city was thronged with people of all classes
from everywhere, there was not a demon
stration of ill feeling in any quarter all
day. But it must not be inferred from this
that tho officers were idle, for they were
not. Under direction of Chief Myers they
pursued a liberal policy toward the strangers
who had come to enjoy themselves. They
moved constantly about amcng tho crowds,
meeting alight trespasses of tho ordinances,
the result of ignorance mostly, merely with
gentle reprimands which were always
Another fact over which we have reason
to rejoice is that there was less shooting of
small fire works in the public thorougl'urcs
and upon the private premises in thecity, aud
very little pistol practice. As a result tl ero
were uo accideutd resulting iu tho injury
either to person or property so far as wo
could learn. Most citizem were contented
to show their patriotism iu tho display of
flags about their houses and yards, and by
attending ami participating in tho various
means of amusement provided for thoitt by
their enterprising fellows.

FAMOUS TOR CATTLE.
The Ranges of Montana Exactly Suitjd
fur Oattb Growing.
Texas nnd tho rc:it southwest nro
fast losing (heir former importance ns a
source of cattle supply. :ivs u eoriv.v
pondem of tho Phi'lad'.-lpiiiii TiiiiKx. full
of enthusiasm fur Montana. The cli
niato of tho southwest, ami other condi
tions are not favorable for cattle grow
ing. It is too warm, and then, again,
tho ground traversed by the Spanish
breed of eattlu is not clean. Kansas is
so situated as to become a vast rattle
growing country, but the land is so well
ndaped for farming that tho stockmen
are forced to give up their ranges to tho
settler or pay an enormous price for it.
Colorado is a first class lield for live
stock growing. Their Texas cattle lo.-e
all their objectionable characteristics,
and at the end of the first year arc ns
healthy nnd fat as native 'stock. But
the greatest objection offered by cattle
men to Colorado or Laramie plains is
that the animals are coarse-boned, un
gainly beasts. This is undoubtedly
caused by the fact that they liavo been
heretofore a cross between a Texas eov
and a native bull. Tho herds of Color
ado nnd Wyoming arc gradually im
proving, owing to the importation vl
well bred bulls, and as the climate is ex
actly suited for the stock, it is only a
matter of time when these regions will
gain as enviable a reputation" as Mon
tana has secured.
The vast urea of land in Montana,
A'liich is exactly suited and could not
bo utilized for any other purpos.i
other than for cattle growing, will
always attract and secure the larg.i
cattle grower. Then again its cli man,
its native grasses insure success. Tho
presence of hardv buffalo attest this
fact. The herds of Montana have been
bred with grent c.aro from the start.
The cows were obtained from Oregon,
and the bulls from Illinois and Ken
tucky. Kcplenishing the 11 ood of tho
herd is constantly vrsorted to in cattle
as well as horses. In consequence, th i
animals will soon rival those bred in
Ohio and Illinois. The winters of Mon
tana are long and sometimes severe, bi4
the young stock are acclimatized, and iu
the spring come out in good condition,
oft-times spending the entire winterouU
side of the sight of man.
This is not so, however, with tho Tex
as cattle. Coming from a wanner cli
mate and in many instances being hay
fed during the coldest weather, thoy
easily succumb to hunger and cold. An
instance recently came under my notice
when a herd of live thousand head per
ished in three months. They wero hur
riedly driven from Texas, arriving; on
their Montana rangn lain in tho fall in
a poor condition. Now a genuine Mon
tanian is a "rustler" - to use aparlanco
of this section consequently, w hen the
snow and wind coine thoy seek tho se
clusion of a sheltered ravir.p, and in the
thick pine protect themselves from the
cold. A hay-slack is unknown, and up
on the side hills, always bare, they pick
up a sustenance from the nutritious
grasses. Of late it lifts become the cus
tom of ranchmen to cut hay from year
to year in readiness for a severe winter.
The nutrition and color of grasses aro
constantly retained, owing to their pe
culiar variety and the absence of rains.
The streaks of alkali furnished a substi
tute for salt, and, in short, if thero is a
land better adapted for stock growing
I have failed to find it. Tho advent of
tho Northern Pacifio Railroad lo this
point has been the means of opening
and developing an industry that renders
It possible for tho cattlemen to kill their
cattle at the nearest railroad station
and ship tho meat In refrigoratorears to
