Mrs. Catharine Cheney, nee Smith,
died at 11 :30 o'clock Thursday night alter
an illness of about six months. She was
the last of the family of Smith's, who were
among the first settlers in Cairo. She was
only twenty-eight years of age and seemed
to be destined to live many years yet, but
consumption which had taken away several
members of the tamily before her also
brought her to an untimely grave. Three
children, all boys, and husband, survive
The weather for the last few days has
been so abominably pleasant that some peo
pie have come to believe that the meddlers
with the ninetieth maredian have made a
mistake and set the sun several months out
of the way. But this notion is probabiy
wrong. It is more likely that these few
days of pleasant weather are a parting
smile from old Daddy Time as he shoulders
his cycle and departs with tbe close of the
This is the 8th day of what is known
in all almanacs and calenders as winter.
But in this latitude and longitude there are
very few evidence of winter's icy presence.
What the month of December may proj
duce, however, before it closes, (besides
Christmas) nobody not versed in meterolog
ical science can safely predict. But, in
Zadkiel's Almanac, we find the following
comments and predictions for December,
1883 : The closing weeks of this year will
be marked by much sickness and a high rate
of mortality. Serious accidents will be
witnessed in the north of England. Extra
precautions should be taken by colliery
managers against accidents. At the winter
solstice Mara culminates and is stationary
at the same time. There will be trouble in
high places! Tbe government will be per
plexed with tbe state of home and foreign
affaire, and the people will find it hard to
satisfy the demands of the tax-gatherer. The
stationary position of Mars is very evil for
tbe rulers of Germany, Russia, Austria and
Italy. France, too, will feel the effects, and
Paris will be greatly disturbed. In Ireland
assassinations will be repeated. All person
whose, aun, moon or ascendant held the 22d
degree of Leo must avoid danger this
Christmas, or it will be a sorry period for
them. Tbe 13th is a good birthday anni
versary for those engaged in martial occu
pations. The 20th is an evil birthday. At
the Utter half of the month Uranus passes
the 28th degree of Virgo, hence places ruled
by the following sign (Libra) Austria and
China, particularly, will be visited with
trouble and misfortune.
About 3 o'clock last evening a young
white fellow walked up to one of tbe figures
in front of Mr. A. Marx's store on Ohio
levee, diliberately divested it of an over
coat worth about $15, and started off with
it or. his arm. Mr. Marx happened to be
sitting on tbe sidewalk not far away, and
though he bad seen tbe fellow take the
coat, he recognized the garment as his own
and the possessor as a thief. He caught
the fellow by the arm and made him sur
render the co it, and then releasing his
hold, tbe thief made a break for liberty,
running dowo Sixth street, up Roilroad
street and out of aight.
Now we are importing eggs from Eu
rope. About 1,900 ces have been re
ceived by New York parties, and arrange
ments to receive consignments weekly
have been made. The eggs are received in
cases of 150 dozen each, and are forwarded
from all parts of Europe. The champions
who hold up our infant industries by the
tail should do something for the American
hen. By the cheap labor of pauper hens in
Denmark, Germany and Italy, the great in
dustries in which American hens are en
gaged is threatened with destruction. It
will never do to allow our hard-working
Amctican fowls to be undersold in the do
mestic market by the pauper hens of Eu
rope, even though the consumer of eggs
should benefit largely by the transaction.
Let patriotic protectionists begin at once
to agitate public sentiment for a prohibi
tory tariff on eggs, before the Americau hen
is driven altogether out of the market.
