The business of tho late llenry llreihan
is carried on as actively since his doath as
it was by him during his lite No part of
the machinery has been permitted to stop,
and the trade in Export Bier, Seltzers,
Soda and Mineral Springs Water will be
held up constaatly to the position it had
reached as one among the leading whole
sale bouses of Cairo. The management of
this great and growing industry is in tho
hands of Messrs. C. M. and W. C. Young,
relatives of its founder, both energetic
young men of 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 in advance of even
its present flattering success.

-We are not at all surprised that tho
error of moro dan live millions of dollars
in the Argus' calculation of tho cost of fill
ing the city, is regarded by that paper as
about as trifling a circumstance as B iron
Muucliasen regarded his feto of climbing
to tho moon by a beau vino. The Argus
publisher's conceptions of tho cost of this
work, taken in connection with his boasted
financial security, might servo Alax-
ander Dumas, jr., as the basis for "A New
Version of The Count of Monto CriBto."

Tho editors and publishers of southern
Illinois met at Du Quoin Friday tor the
purpose of organizing themselves into sn
association to promote tho interests of the
profession. Tho attendance was very fair,
about fifty members of tho profession being
present, representing all parts of this end
of the state, without regard to politics.
Tho best of feeling prevailed throughout
tho proceedings. Speeches wore made by
many, suggesting and comtueuting upon,
tho obji.-cts of the association, which were,
in tho main, to build up tho business, to iu
duco publisheis and editors to become bet
ter business managers, and to keep one
another posted as to bogus advertisers and
other ni at tors ot mutual Interest lu a busi
ness way. A permanent organization whs
effected by the election of Judge Under

lloc.shenstein, a smart young German of
E lwi.rdsvillc, as secretary; Messrs. Ander

Quoin, as vice-presidents, and Mr. Tul't, of
Ceutralia, as treasurer. Tho next meeting
of tho association will bo held at Bollville,
sometime in March, next, the exact date to
be fixed by the president. It is understood
that there aro to be two meetings yearly,

Why the Argus so persistently lays itself
open t ) a charge of presuming that its
readers are stupid fools enough not to
know that it is lyiug to them when it
prates about the necessity of an additional
system of underground sewerage in case
tho streets are raised, is beyond our com
prehension. The Argus goes a great deal
further than wo would ever dare to go, to
insult tho understanding ol the reading

son in the audience. Dr. Dunham carries
a gold headed cane that was given Lima
few weeks ago at New Orleans, at the
close ot a lecture to over 10,000 people, by

The public schools open Oct. l6t, and
it will be of some interest to parents to

A machine called atiicicle, for naviga
ting water, has been attracting some atten
tion at the foot of Fourth street for some
days back. It was invented by a Cairo
man and is owned by several young men,
among them Messrs. Tim Coyle, and T. M.
Lovett. Its whoels uro of the form of
bouys, made ot tin and painted red. Out
side the side wheels piddlo wheels are ad
justed, which, being worked by the feet and
hands by means of luvors, propel tbe ma
chine. Only one man cau ride the thing
at a time, though it looks as though it
might easily bear up three or four. It is
still incomplete and when finished will be
given a trial trip in frout of the city.
Tho Argus publisherV'high grade talk
as we catch it ou the street," purporting to
be expressions from "Messrs. A, B, C, D, E,
F, G, etc.," through tho whole alphabet,
bears upon its laco that unmistakable
stamp of romance that has characterized
nearly all the Argus' utterances on street
filling. "Messrs. A, B, C," etc., aro cre
ations of tho publishers' own fancy, con
jured up during his rambles between his
house and his sanctum. They have not
even tho merit of being applicable to the
subject he aims at. As arguments against
street tiling they have about as much
weight as Esop's Fables and much lees
weight than any annonimou communca
tion would have.
Only one complaint was made to Chief
Myers yesterday. From among all
the strangers that "took in"
the city only ono claituod to
have been "taken in." lie was an elderly
man, h id come with 30 in his pockets,
had yisited six or eight houses and had
some fun, then lay down in one of the
streets and fell into a drunken slumber,
and when ho was awakened by an officer,
he got mad, wanted to cut bis heart out and
I: low his head off, but wns forced to go to
police headquarter, ami there discovered to
his surprise that ho had not quite as much
money as ho had when ho came into town
and swore that he had been robbed.
B irrctt& Co's show drew a big crowd
of strangers to tho city yesterday from all
directions, All the railroads came in with
extra delegations of passengers from along
their lines. Tho procession in the street
was a very long ono, moro fancy wagons
wero displayed than at auy previous show,
and to these were added three hands of
music and one steam calliope, also a number
of elephants, camels, etc. A free perform
ance on the show grounds drew the crowd
there immediately after tho procession. The
performance was a suporior one throughout
snd in many respects a novel one. The
tents wero crowded both afternoon and
night and everybody was well pleased.
Communicated : Last Wednesday, the
19th, was tho day set apart by llis Nationil
Christian Union, for tho distribution of
flowers in the hospitals and prisons.- In
this city, three ladies, Mrs. Wood Kitten
house, Mrs. Bristol and Mrs. K, C. Ford,
visited the county jail and hospital, giving
to eBch patieut ami prisoner a beautiful
bouquet of natural flowers, alro distribu
ting reading matter and cardf, with appro
priate inscriptions printed thereon. At the
jail tho flowers seumud to effect, the
prisoners very much, no doubt, recalling the
days of childhood and innoceiiso; one young
man remarked: "I have been here along
time ami didn't know thero was a christian
woman iu the place;" the papers also woro
received with evident pleasure
but we failed to see how they could read iu
such dark places. At the mariue hospital,
we wero kindly received by Sister Anthony,
who is in charge, wo were shown tbe differ
ent departments and found everything in
perfect order. The drug room and labora
tory aro presided over by Sister Anthony in
person, who fills all of the physician's pres.
criptions, also makes all the syrups and
tinctures from' tho crudo material. It was
an interesting study to watch several of
these chemical preparations. Wo were
conducted through tho long rooms witli
their rows of ueat white cots. The hospital
contains about fifteen patients, three of
whom were taken in, out of charity, and
kindly cared for, ono of these, an old man,
very much emaciated, on receiving a
bright bouque, looked up, and
we saw tho sunken eye fill with tours,
while the voice was too weak to scaicely
be he ird, the sisters Jsaid, "ho cdme to us
so sick, we could not turn him away." God
bless those tiue women. The upper story
is divided iuto several comfortably furnish
ed rooms for the accommodation of privuto
patieiitn, who for two dollars per day, have
board, nursing and mediciue, and those
whocunnot afford us much, are just as well
taken euro of, at less rates; there are also
rooms for women', provided with a nicely
furnished general sitting room for all. The
porches with their overhanging vines com
mand a good view, as we passed through
the bouse and grounds, wo thought what a
nice place it would be for a charity or city
hospital, where tho marines will be
moved to tho new house.

Throe years ago, our fair Irene,
Too frail to f ice life's storms ;

Mnumiclng with a gladsome heart,
Tbe onga tbe tweet birds manV

Of life did slower run;
The thread was mapped the cord wa luocd-
We bow'd, "Thy will ho dono."
lint oh! how bard It was to lay

Whuu we knjw that Ood bid willed we
From dour Ireuo ttiould pari !
And then a lims, lima dreary blank
Came after the was gone;
L'utll wc aw how grlov.d was Ood
To see in ait and mourn.
Surely, Irene in heav'n could fee
How aolfish wanonr life;
Then !irly she couH never wiaa
Our heart to full ol mrl.'o.

Thk Bt'U.EiiN did not "figure from
the bisisof the present legal grade." Thk
Bulletin "figured from tho basis of" a
fill of fifteen feet all ovtr the city, without
any regard whatever to "tho present legal
grade." The Argus knows that it is not
telling tho truth when it says,
"An average of the filling required inside
the levees to give surface drainage over
fifty-five foot levees could not bo loss than
twenty feet iu depth, and this at thirty
ceuts per yard, the price received by Mr.
Sui bi mi for tho tilling on tbe Library lots,
would amount to figures approximating
those wo gavo yesterday,"
A t .verity foot fill over every square inch
ol'urouud within tho levees, leaving no
cavities for basements, cellars vaults, but
making a smooth surface, from levee to
levee, would require just 88,847,998 2 3
cubic yards -of earth, at thirty cents per
yard, w uld amount to just f 11,504,899.00,
and full short of "approximating" the Ar
gus' estimate just exactly three millions,
tour hundred ninety-six thousand, six hun
dred ten dollars aud forty cents.
The Argus knows that it does n&t tell the
truth when it says that an "average fill of
twenty feet would be required to give sur
face drainage over a filty-five foot levoo."
It knows that such a 1111 on tho streets al
ready tilled to tho present legal grade
would place thorn eight feet above the
tops of the levees. It knows that if there
is any spot within the levees that would re
quiro a twenty foot fill in ordor to give it
drainage over a fifty-llvo foot levee, that
spot is a very small area. A quantity of
earth that would, if spread equally over
entire city, cover it to a depth of fifteen feet,
would, if space were loft for basements,
cellars, vaults, cisterns, etc., present and
prospective, more than rai30 every square
inch of the exposed surface of tho city to a
point where it might be drained over a
filty-five foot levee.
But this talk Is all foolishness, except as
it shows how ridiculously extravagant and
inexcusably inaccurate are the notions of
thu swamp-angol over ihe way, about the
cost of street raising as proposed by Mayor

Halliday and Mr. L'nogar; and to show
also how some men will deliberately feed
their unreiiHoning prejudice against a per
son or thing, with what they know to be
the grossent falsehood. Furtheimore there
is no thought of filling the eutihe city,
every square- inch of ground within the
levees, to a point where it may bo drained
over a fifty-five foot levee. Tho object is
as stated before, to commence filling tho
streets only. No one who takes an un
prejudiced view of the inattir will say that
to do this would not be a great benefit to
the city at large in tho long run, and ad
mitting this, no man who wished the city
well and who had nny respect for himself,
would resort to dishonorable means to
prevent its inauguration. The man who
has right on bis side never resorts to open
falsehood to i;iin his point.
