In this country we are alt kings,'
and we are all entitled to have as
Sood blood as that which courses '
uough the veins of emperors.
There are princes and million
aires, languishing in feebleness and
broken-down bodily health, who
would be glad to have the strength
of the humblest laboring man.
And there are many people who
are neither kings, emperors, nor
millionaires, whose blood is thin,
whose circulation is poor, who are
suffering from lassitude and debil
ity, and who know not the pleasure
of a hearty, meal nor the enjoy
ment of being able to do a good
1 f such people will put some iron
into their blood, they will virilize
and enrich it. They can do this by
the use -of Browns Iron Bitters,
the purest and most excellent iron
medicine ever made. Thousands
who were weak, languid, pale, and
prostrated, are now happy to say
that Brown's Iron Bitters brought
them up and gave them new life! 5

,, OPERA HOUSE TO-NIGHT.
-, During the last visit of the Huntley
Combination to Cairo, .the "Celebrated
' Case" was produced at matinee performance
nd was pronounced a splendid piece of
cling,' the play itself being full of tho
post Intense interest.
Jive play will be repeated here to-night
tnd we hope to see a full bouse. , ,
The "Celebrated Case" contains nothing
ef the western mining feature, of which wa
re all thoroughly sickened, but treats of
'city life and tha complications which eur
rounds t supposed modern of a wife. Those
who witnessed the drama here before are
enthusiastic in their praise ot it, and will all

.' A Mild Winter.
"Muskrats ain't troubling themselves
much about a hard wiuier," said an old
liuuter yesterday. "You don't fool
them much on tlio weather," he con
tinued; "they're better than an alma
nac. I've watched them a good' many
Jears over in theAmcricHn bottom, anil
can always tell along in the fal:
whether we are oin;; to have an open
winter or not. How car I tell?" ad
ded the Ninirod, repeating the report
er's question. "Kasy enough. I don't
have to feel for it, either. If it's gointf
to bo a hard winter, you'll see the
muskrats commence house-building
Hrly in the fall, aud by this time they
will have their mounds on the marshes
built up of ,niiul and sticks aud leaves
three or four feet above water. But if
the weather is going to be mild, you'll
see nothing of that kind." A colored
man from Bouhommo bottom where
he has lived most of the time since tho
war, was standing by, and added his
testimony as to the sins of the season.
"I tell you, boss," said he, "do groun'
hog am de animal dat I goes by. He's
learned more about de weather dan all
de rest ob de beasts. If he kin see his
shadow when he conies outcn his hole
in February he gits back in de groun'
quick and stays tliar six weeks longer.
Then you ran bet thar'll le a Tate
spring. Ho's jest as mart about do
winter, foah if it's gwine to be warm
he jes' scratches a snalW hole to hide
in; that's all ho wants, but if it's gwine
ter freeze hard he'll goin deep and make
hisself a warm neat of dry grass and
leaves. le groun' hog ain't troublin
any 'bout cold weather now. He's
made up his mind it's no use an' is
going to lib close todetop obdegronn'
widout any ld dis winter. I ain't got
any use for a big wood pile dis winter,
nor you won't either, boss" and the
colored scientist walked away! Lfok
ing for further infrmaiiou,the reporter
Jtieitioned well known poulterer in
'nion market and was informed that
the inner skin of chicken gizzards peel
ed off very easily, a never failing sign
they say of a green Christmas. Another
point was gained from a farmer who
savs the corn husks are remarkablv
and li:rht this fall, another evi
dence recognized as a promise of thin
Mallard ducks have very few feathers
this fall. "You needn't fear much cold
weather when tho ducks are not well
feathered," remarked Judy, the game
dealer. "Another thing," said he, "the
wild fowUhave not gone south yet
They are feeding north of here aud
will come down later and stay around
here as they did two years ago." Chris
Meiderweiser, of Baden, cites the old.
infallible German bign of the breast
bone of a goose, to prove that fuel
ought to be cheap this winter. Chris
killed a goose for dinner last Sunday,
and after eating the meat from the
breast found the bone ko thin that he
could see through it, "If the winter
were going to be verv cold," he says,
"the goose-bone would have been three
times as thick.".
Ripe tornatos, picked daily from tbt
vines, are for sale on Union market, a
luxury, Grunderaeyer says, that is not
afforded so late in the season one year
in ten. . , - . ,
If further evidence is needed to con
vince the skeptical that there i no ne
cessity for squandering a fortune in
coal, H is afforded in tlio wily cattish of
tlie Alissouri river. When the stream
is going to freeze up, the cattish knows
it long enough in advance to prepare
himself with a good thick hide. John
son, the fishmonger, declares the cat
tish had skins like whales last winter,
but now their winter covering is as thin
as silk. Ht. Louiu Uiobc-Dvnwmt.
Judah P. Banjamin on tta Retreat.
Burton N. Harri-on, of the "ew York
bar, who was Jefferson I'avis' private
secretary, describes in tin- November
Century the re'reat from Richmond,
and ."The Capture of Jefferson Da. is."
The now famous Mr. Henjiiuin's good
humor during the retreat is described as
follows: "We moved southward on,
I think, the day following the council
of war held with General Johnston,
starting from Greensboro' in the after
noon, i The president, thoo of us who
constituted ois immediate staff, and
some members of tlio cabinet, were
mounted. Others rode in ambulances,
armv wagons, or suoh conveyances as
coufd be got Almost at the last min
ute. I wa told I must provide an ambu
lance for Mr. Judah P. Ik-ujamin, sec-
.retary ofr state.
t By?gobd fortunc.I was able to secure
an ambulance; but tho horses were old
and broken down, of a dirty grav col
or, and with spots like fly-bites all over
them, and the harness was not good.
There was no choice, however, and in
to that ambulance got Mr. Benjamin,
, General Samuel Cooper (adjutant gen
eral, and ranking oflicer of the whole
army), Mr. George Davis (of North
Carolina,'attorney general), and Mr.
Jules St. Martin, Benjamin's brother-in-law.
"By the time thoy got off, the . front
of our column had been some time in
motion, and the president had ridden
down the road. Heavy rains had re
cently fallen, tho earth was saturated
with water,. the soil was a sticky red
clay, the mud, was awful, and the road,
in places, almost impracticable. The
wheeled vehicles could move but slow
ly; and it was only by sometimes turn
ing into the fields and having St. Mar
tin and the attorney general get out to
help the horses with an occasi nal
fence-rail nnder tho axles, that their
party got along at all so difficult was
the road because of the mod and so
formidable were the holes made during
the winter, and deepened by the artil
lery and heavy wagons that day. I
was near them from time to tiniTi, and
rondcrcd what asistance I could. Dark
ness came on after while, and nearly
or quite everybody in the column pass
ed ejioad of that arabulanoo. Having
beferl kept latterly in the rear by some
thing detaining mo, I observed, M l
rode forward, the tilted hind-part of an
ambulance stuck in the mud in the
middle of the road, and recognized the
voices inside, as 1 drew roin for a mo
ment to chuckle at their misfortunes.
; The horses were blowing like two rusty
fog-horns; Benjamin was scolding the
driver for not going on; that function
ary was stoically insisting that they
could proceed no whit further, because
. the horses were broken down; and Gen
eral Cooper (faithful old gentleman,
0AIKO BULLETIN: TUESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 25, uss.
he had been iu Richmond throughout
our war, and had not knoVn since tho
Seminole war what it is to 'rough it')
was grumbling about the impudence of
a subordinate oflicer ('only a brigadier
general, sir'). It seems that the of
fender had thnist himself into the seat
iu another ambulance drawu by good
horses, that was intended for the adju
tant general. Getiing alongside, 1
could see the front wheels were 1 over
the hubs in a hole; the hind-legs of the
horses were in the same hole, up to the
hocks; and the feet of the driver, hung
down almost into the mud. Mud and
water were deep all around them, and
their plight was pitiful indeed! They
plucked up their spirits only when I
offered to get .souiubodv to pull them
out. Riding forward, 1 found an ar
tillery camp, where some of tho meu
voluutcorcJ to go back w ith horses and
haul the niubuLnre up the hill; and,
returning to them aain, I could see
from afar the occasional bright glow of
Benjamin's cheerful cigar. While the
others of the party wre perfectly si
lent, Benjamin's silvery voice was
presently heard as he n thmically in
toned, for their comfort, verso after
verse of Tennyson's ode on the death
of the Duke of Wellington! The laure
ate would have enjoyed the situation
could he have heard the appreciative
rendering of his noble poem under tho
circumstances of that moment!''
A Benevolent Eird.
There is on very odd cn of benev
olence of one animal towards another
which shows that help is often needed
where least suspected.
Who would suppose that the rle
phant, with his great s:ze and massive
strength, could be in need of such aid
as so insignificant a creature as a bird
could give it?
Against such large animals as lions,
tigers, and rhinoceroses it ran defend
itself, but against tiny insects, which
might crush under its feet by the hun
dred, it has no protection except what
is given by a little feathered friend.
With such a thick skin as it has, one
might well suppose that the elephant
would have no trouble from insects; but
in truth, it is the very thickness of its
hide which makes the small insect
dangerous. . i,
Ticks, which are abundant in all for
ests, work their way into the cracks in
the skin of the huge creature, and as
the skin is so thick they are enabled to
bury themselves so completely that
they cannot be scraped off when the
smarting animal rubs against rocks or
trees. A differently constructed ani
mal could use its teeth or feet to re
move the annoyance; but for the ele
hhant there is nothing but suffering and
torture, unless some Kind friend lends
a helping hand or bill.
And this kind friend is not lacking;
for no sooner are the little pests com
fortably ensconced than a pair of small,
bright, yellow eyes searches them out,
and the next moment a pretty, orange
colored beak plucks them forth. The
owner of the eyes and beak is a beauti
ful snow-white heron; small of body
but largo of heart; for it seems, in
Northern Africa at least, to have de
voted its life to the benevolent work of
watching over its monstrous protege.
It is a novel and beautiful sight to see
the dark skinned giant of the junglo
8ialkinj ponderously alon with as
many as a score of these beautiful birds
in-relied upon his back and head,
busby working to free him from his lit
tle tormentors. And full well the ele
phant knows what he owes his bene
factors. Not for anything would he
harm them, ugly-tempered as he often
is. Even when the sharp beak probes
deep in the sensitive flesh, the great
creature bears the pain patiently, seem
ing to know that it is a necessity. 67.
A Conscientious Conductor.
"How did I become superintendent?"
answered the railroad official. "Why,
it was this way: I was conductor of tfie
morning passenger express, and one
day as we were coming down by the
junction we struck a misplaced switch
and ran into a freight train that was
standing on the siding. As we were
running about thirty-rive miles an hour
of course it piled things up a good deal.
Onr engine was smashed all to pieces,
the 'smoker' telescoped the baggage
car, and the forward passenger coach
ran up on the heap and rolled over. I
was standing on the platform at the
time the thing happened, and luckily
was slung off about thirty feet beside
the track. When I picked myself up
everything was confusion, the air was
filled with clouds of escaping steam,
and about fifty passengers were some
where in the wreck. Of course, it was
what you might call an 'emergency,'
but there's no such word as that in the!
company's dictionary. 1 had my or-l
ders, and knew what to do. The roof
of the smoking-car lay near me, and I
heard a man crying out from under
neath it. After about ten minutes'
work, 1 got the stuff all cleared away,
and reached him. He was very weak
and groaning. 'Oh, heavens!' he said,
this timber presses on me ,sok I can't
move. Both my legs are broken below
the knee.' 'Think you'll be here till
the next train?' I asked. 'Oh, yes.' he
moaned. 'Then you'll need a stop-over
check, sir,' I said, and I made out a
pasteboard and gave it to him. 'Young
man,' he said, 'I observe that you have
neglected to till in the day of the'month,
but under the circumstances, your
omission is excusable. I am a director
of the company, and, if I survive, your
attention to duty shall be rewarded.'
The old gentleman pulled through, and
is now vice-president. That's how I'm
superintendent, and" he continued
musingly, as he fingered his lantern
watch-charm, "I believe In the old say
ing that the company has rights which
the public is bound to respect, and
rules which they must conform to."

! The occasion of Queen Victoria's
recent interdict against excessive card
playing in the royal palaces was her
learning that, during' the residence of
the Duke of Teck at Kensington Palace
this season, the games were often con
tinued all Sundays and other days alt
night. Enormous sums were frequent
ly lost. Tho royal memorandum re
commends a correction and reformation
from these tcesse.
