The business of the late Henry lireihait
is carried ou as actively Bince his tli.atb as
it was by him during his life. No par' f
the machinery has been permitted to stop,
ami the trade in Export Boer, Seltzers,

held up constantly to the position it had
reached as ono among tho leading whole
sale houses of Cairo. Tho management of
this great and growing industry is in the
hands of Messrs. C. M. and W. C. Young,
relatives of its founder, both mergttie
young men tit the highest business quali
fications, for whom there is no such word
as fail, and we feel justified in making the
prediction that the end of a year will find
the business under their judicious and vig
orous management far iu advance of even
its present fl itk'ring success.

Yesterday Mr. Julius Sarbian began

the Illinois Central railroad company. This
work dune will close up the gap in the levee
at the upper end of tin; oily, making it almost
of a uniform height from Fourteenth street
to where the city's levee joins tho old levee.

that are accepted by a few deluded citizens

It appears that the G 'riua'is are not

About one o'clock yesterday idVrnoon
the ground was biokc.i f(,r the SilVord
Memorial Library Budding. Mrs. Anna
E. Sailor I, the pr jectross of tho institution,
turned the fust spade full of dirt, iu tho
presence of an interested company of citi
zens, and then stiong itiins pioceeded to
clear the way for the foundation of the
structure tint is to be tho pride
of Cairo for ages to come. The
important work thus solemnly be
gun will now be vig iromly prosecuted un
til the splendid institution shall be com
pleted. The building will stand in nr the
coutro of tha ground. By a survey made
by Engineer Charles Thruop, it was ascer
tained that about eight thousand cubic
yards of dirt will bo required to fill the
ground to a level with Waihingt iu avenue.
- Give us a few souioii figures Mr. Argus,
as to the cost of street tilling, etc., from
men who are competent to estimate the
cost of such work. Get a brick mason to
tell for you how much a wall of certain di
mensions will cost; get a m m who has had
long experience in tilling in this city, to
tell how much money per cubic yard ho
can place a thoiuand cubic yards in front
of tho Argus olllce; get a house raiser to
say how much ho will charge to raise a
house of certain dimensions to a certain
height, Wo have men among us who aro
thoroughly competent to mako estimates on
such work nnd they can bo gotten with lit
tle trouble. Mr, Julius Sarbiati is more
competent to estimate tho cost of hauling a
given number of cubic yards of dirt, from
a certain place, to a certain place
than any civil engineer who
ever drew a line; Mr. Henry Stout can
conio nearer telling you tho cost of a brick
