The Argus sees speculation in
every "high grade" movement,
when in fact there is no
speculation in its editors eye nor marrow in
his bones. He is as suspicious as an old

that when the talk is "high grade" nobody
wants to Bell, andjwhen it is "low grade"
nobody wants to buy.

"Ye Ancients'' is the rather significant
name of a new dancing class organized by
the young and old married people of G.'ro,
and under tho instruction of Prof. Mm n.
The name is not only significant but, when
we lake in the fact that Bradley, Hender
son and Menager are among its members,
very appropriate. Capt. S. wanted to join,
but, being neither married nor ancient,
was barred out. The club has no officers,
head or hall, but meet at residences of
members once each week. Their first
meeting was held Thursday night at Mr.
Menager's residence, and mey will meet
again next Monday night at the residence
of Wood Rittcnhouse.
The following Bote received yesterday

Cairo, 111., Oct. 12, 1888.
To the Kdi.or and Publisher of The bulletin;
Gentlemen Allow me, as I leave Cairo,
1 1 thank you for your unitorm Kindness
during the eight years I have been here.
That is a long time for kindness, to remain
uniform, buf, as I look back, I can remem
ber nothing else from The Bulletin to

- Stupidity is stupidity, whether mascu
line or feminine. The only difference is
that there is a prejudice in favor of giving
more for a stupid man's work than for a
stupid woman's work. When it comes to
an equality of efficiency the
same rule holds good as many
capable women say with a flush ol indigna
tion which comes direct from tho heart
crowded under by senseless conventional
ties. The women employed in government
positions in the city of Washington com
plain that the pretext frequently set up for
not promoting them that they aro not
capable accountants is unjust and false.
Why not let them prove it by actual trial?
Milton Nobles at the Opera House last
night as usual drew a large house. The
play as was expected, was produced in a
manner to call forth continues laughter in
the funny pots, especially those rendered
by Milton Nobles in his inimitable manner,
to be followed by sadness ami tears as the
scenes changed and pathos took tho place
of comedy. All the most desirllo seats
were taken in advance ami notwithstand
ing tho threatening weather, there was a
large attendance of what may hu called
transient theatre-goers, that is those who
attend only when tho lit is on them or tho
attraction is, as last night, unusually great-
The Milton Noble company is an extra
good one and is bound to score a flattering
success wherever they go.
Rev. B. Y. George left tho city yeater

The Paducah News has a long editor
ial in its issuo of tho 10th and nearly a
column of alleged interviews with citizens
of Cairo. The editorial and interviews
are all surmises as to how this or that
might be doiio by tho Illinois Central R. R.
and its consequent bearing on tho future
of Cairo and Paducah. Now we
don't want to prevent poor 1'
ducah from drawing all the
encouragement or consolation sho can from
each and every small happening, but facts
are stubborn things and we propose to deal
iu facts exclusively. To begin with, Padu
cah has entirely too much of the mayor a id
the judge in her population
t become more thau what the is,
a very pretty but very dead country village.
Next, the Illinois Central R. R. lias spent
more money in Cuiro aud its approaches in
the last year than they have in all the 20
previous years combined, and lastly and
what is of greater moment to tho Paducah
bridge vision, a competent engineer who is
thoroughly posted informed a representa
tive of The Bulletin that Bay City above
Smithland is the first point above Cairn
where the river bottom is of such charac
ter as to furnish a foundation for a bridge,
and the worst bottom is the looso gravel at
Paducah, while there is none better than at
Cairo. The distance from Cairo to Jackson
is less than the distance from Paducah to
Jackson; tho river at Cairo is always free
from ice and the company find no difficulty
in making transfers the year around, there
fore do not contemplate building a bridge
and certainly would not build one at Pa
ducah where there is no foundation to build
The annual report of tho Illinois Cen
tral, now in the bands ot the railroad and
warehouse commission, shows that the com
pany has 1,027 miles of track, of which 900
miles are in Illinois. A net income of $3,
082,CG2 remained after paying tho operat
ing expenses and taxes of the company,
from which the usual semi-annual dividends
aggregating $2,0:30,000 were paid. The
gross inccme was this year nearly f 2,000,
000, in advance of the last year, having
reached a.total of $10,574,842, but the sum
of 49,921 was taken from last yeur's sur
plus to meet dividends and construction ex
penses. The earnings of the New Orleans
division are reported only from January till
June. Last year the operating expenses
were only 13,809,074, while this year they
are $o,570,5S2. Of this amount $1,342,
834 was paid out for construction. Besides
the above expenditures $521,033 was paid
tor taxes, $1,325,949 on interest on the
funded debt, and $770,034 on rentals, mak
ing the total expenses for the year, out
side of dividends, $7,094,703. List year
fie total expenditures were 1(1,327,231.
The liabilities of the company, all on bond
ed debt and capital sto-k, are $57, 1 18,000,
and its assets are $89,825,507. It employs
8,209 persons tit salaries aggregating $.,

sources ran up the total receipts to $10,-

earnings, amounting to $4 12,033, was paid
to tie: state in lieu of all taxes. During
the ycur 55 persons were killed, and 77
injured -all in Illinois.
About 8 o'clock Thurslay evening,
whibs Mr. and Mrs. Scarritt were quietly
enjoying a call irom an intimate menu a
vigorous ringing ot the door bell, and an
unusual shimmering and shuffling Beemed
ominous of some commotion of more than
ordinary magnitude and intorest, on the
usually quiet corner of 8th and Walnut.
Mrs. S. responded to the call and upon
opening the door ami looKing upon toe
moonlight scene, nhe stood aniaz -d to see
the portico, the yard and a goo 1 portion of
the street, alivo with a merry inasi of Moil
ing humanity vainly endeavoring to sup
press their glee until the appointed moment
for the "boom" to begin. The interest of
the picture was intensified by a back ground
of sundry horse and buggies, and a do-
livery wagon freighted with piles of wcll
lilled baskets and freezers, in the use ot
which tho Cairo ladies aro acknowledged
experts. 'I ho general throng was led by
Mrs. Amanda ICinnoar, carrying a magnifi
cent and fragrant floral conn, which filled
tho air with grateful odors, suggesting and
inspiring tho sweet spirit of friendship and
pleasant cheer, which prevailed during the
evening. The parsonage was soon filled,
front and rear, above, below and still the
throng pressed in and through until Homo
one called out, "to thu lecture

the gas was lighted, and ample as well as
convenient facilities were found lor the so

o'clock thu baskets md their accompany

wife with a few tender pleadings persuaded
him to remain at home ibat evening, prom

that if this was the kind of amusement he
wanted he needn't go outsido tho family
for it, and on her appearance immediately
