The Cairo City Oil Mills have stopped
running for tho season. Shortness of the
siipidy of cotton seed made it necessary to
stop the mills sooner than was expected,
and the lack of seed was due to the failure
of the Texas and St. Louis road to come
through on time. Manager Davis and
wife are at Nashville, taking things easy.

The scheme to extend the county road
up to the hills seems to have fallen through,
for the present, at least. Mr. Sol Silver, who
had charge of the subscription paper to
raise the $1,000 ha9 abandoned the job, af
ter having obtained only one-fourth of the
money wanted. This is to be regretted.
Cairo is so much in need of all tho coun
try trade she can get, and she has so few
good roads connecting her with what little
farming country surrounds, that citizens
ought not to permit any opportunity to in
crease their facilities for establishing com
merce with the country around them, to
pass by. The proposed new road to the
hills in Kentucky und that to the hills iD
Pulaski county would certainly bring to
Cairo iu a few years more than the cosi of
stu h roads. Both roads would lead to rich
finning countries tht are settled and cul
tivat-'d. They are now virtually cut off
from Cairo most of the time and are 011I7
waiting for tho chance to roll into CUro
what wealth in the form of crops they may
produce every year and take merchandise in
exchange. But if Cairo will not even do a
small share of the expense of establishing
such c iiiiiiuiiiiorttioii she cannot expect, and
certainly doesn't deserve, any of the bone
tits that would result from such connection.

The keeper ra.sed wlu.t goods were- on the
floor onto the counters and then waited for
the rain and flood to subside; but instead
ol this, both became more furious and all

the store, taking boxes, coun'er and goods
out with it through the front door and

three feet higher than it now is, which
would bring it even with the present grade

one of the circulars and posted it up at

One of negroes now iu jail under sus
picion of being parties to the several little
robberies committed in the city of late
whose name is Settle, carried some
evidence of crookedness in his pockets.
He met Officer Mahanny ami his prisoner,
"Brariily" on the way to jail Tuesday and
asked the prisoner if Iu: wanted anything.
The officer, without giving ''Brandy" a
chance to reply, took Settle under arrest
und marched him otr to .Magistrate Coin
ing's court where he was fined one hundred
dollars and costs for vagrancy. Before
leaving the court Settle was made to dis
gorge, and ho produced from his pockets a
variety of things that certainly indicate
that he was not a model citizen, given only
to honest pursuits fur a living. Besides two
handfulls of copper pt-nnies hecarriei a set
of dice and three certificates of deposit
from Messrs. Farubaker & Co., showing
that he had at three different times pawned
a watchfor $0. The tickets beardatesof June
25tli, June JJOth and July 18th. Each was
given for thirty days. Settle says that the
watch is not now on deposit and that each
ticket was given for the same watch which
he redeemed ev:ry time before the expira
tion of the thirty days. It will be observ
ed that, according to the dates of the tick
ets, the watch underwent very rapid transit
at one time, being pawned on the 25th of
June, redeemed, and pawned again five
days later. Settle was very evidently taken
by surprise when arrested and was very
anxious to get out of tho scrape, for he of
fered to bribe the city attorney with a
spanking new ten dollar note, to grant him
a stay of execution, promising to leave
town immediately. But the city attorney's
virtuous soul was indignant and he repelled
the infamous proposition. Settle is in jail
and will, tor three months at least, bo lorced
to make an honest living.
