Babies arrive io London at the rate of
9,700 per week ; and the Republican Cen
tral Committee's plan of carrying Indiana
in future elections ia creating a similar
boom in that state. But if we glance over
the list of marriages in lhis city and coun
ty for the last few weeks, and note also the
rich, iweot odor of orange blossoms that
still pervades the social atmosphere all
around us, we are led to conclude that
London and Indiana will not have to trem
ble alone io their peculiar afflctions very
long. Several weddings are to come off
very shortly aad prominent among them is
mentioned that of a popular young Hibern
ian wbo has for some time worn municipal
honors with becoming modesty.
Jno. Kelly and Patrick Murphy were
brought out by Officers Mahanny and
Bouhner yesterday and held to bail each
ia the sum of $300 to appear at the next
term of the circuit court to answer the
charge of robbing J. T. Durham of a silver
watch valuod at $25, on lower Commercial
avenue Friday night. The victim, Durham,
was also placed under a bond of $200 to
appear and prosecute the prisoners, the
court taking charge ot the watch until the
trial shall come off. The evidence against
the prisoners was strong, and it was a case
so agrivating that the court's precautions to
insure the presence of the principal prose
cuting witness in the circuit court were
eminently proper. Thomas Kelly, a brother
to one of the prisoners, who was also with
the party and drunk, was fined $20 and
Clark & Lovett are having between

will be on exhibition at their store to-day
and to-morrow, the 2Ut and 22d, and their
customers who desire to get fine pictures
should call on these days and make their
selections. No such opportunity has ever
before been offered in this city. 2t
Au old lady named Mrs. Harrington
died at her home up town Friday morning
at the advanced age of eighty-five years.
She will be remembered by many citizens
who any have seen her every day for some
years carrying a large can full of milk
about the city, retailing it out to her custo
mers. She was a remarkable woman, as
strong and agile as a well conditioned man
of thirty-five, and apparently less than fifty
years old. Her husband and several chi
dien survive her, the former being a year
and a half older than deceased. A daught
erfilty-four years if age was expected to
arrive yesterday from Texas, snd the funer
al will probably take place to-day.
This term of the circuit court has been
very unsatisfactory to plaintiffs generally.
Oftbe five or six jury cases disposed of
but one was decided in favor oftbe plaintiff
and this was the Parrot-Freeze case in which
the elaintiff was voted the magnificent sum
of one cent in satisfaction of damages fixed
by him at $180. In contemplation of this
fact one naturally arrives at the conclusion
that many plaintiffs are nuisances thought
lets, foolish fellows, who rush into court to
gain what they never lost and lose what
little they may have had, besides making
the public their unwilling creditor to the
extent often of double or treble what they
seek to obtain. This, of course, is not to
apply to all cases.
Prof. James H. Brownlee, of the Car
bondale University, was in the city yester
day. He is not at all fearful for the future
ot the school. He says the school lost prob
ably half a dozen scholars on account of the
the fire, but no more; but will not risk the
expression of an opinion as to the probable
effect it might exert at the openlDg of the
new term next month. However, he sees no
reason why there should be any falling off
in attendance, as the new quarters will be
very commodious. The splendid library
aud, in fact, all the fixtures of the school,
were saved and will be put in the spacious,
temporary building, which will make the
temporary quarters as complete and com
fortable as was the mansard-capped build
ing of a few weeks ago.
"M'iisB" was produced at the Opera
House last night by the Harry J. Mortimer
company. The play is a new one to the
Cairo public; it is taken from border life,
and combines all the qualities that hold
the uninterrupted attention of an audience.
The company produced the piece to the
evident satisfaction of the audience, for the
applause was frequent, hearty and prolong
ed. Mr. Mortimer himself is a good actor,
and though suffering from a cold last night
gave the part of "Bill Green" in a faultless
manner. Miss Weston's "M'liss" was a
good piece of acting throughout and elicited
much merit approbation from the audience.
The company, though not large, is com
posed of good talent, every part in the play
lust night being well supported, and only
those who went in the expectation of seeing
an indifferent play were disappointed. This
afternoon at the matinee the company will
produce "Our Boarding House" and to night
"The Vigihntes," both of which are deep
ly interesting plays.
Yesterday some evil disposed person
sent to Mrs. M. E. Powers an anonymous,
letter, enclosing a clipping from the St
Louis Globe-Democrat of some wetks ago,
detailing the capture of young Will Powers
and another young man in the act of bur
glarizing the Zanone saloon on Ohio levee.
The spirit that prompted the sender in this
petty act of meanness must disgust all men
and worneu who are not dead to the suffer
ings of others. The person who
can find pleasure in reproach
ing and taunting sorrowing parents
with the sins of their unguided off
spring mint have a soul too diminutive and
mean to deserve even contempt. Mr. and
Mrs. Powers have lived long among us, and
tbey and their two excellent daughters are
generally respected and esteemed by those
who know them best. Tbey probably feel
more keenly the disgrace of their reckless
son and brother than he does himself.
Certainly, the sorrow of these innocent ones
ought to be sacred to their fellow men and
