grade. He wants high grade if be can get
it, and it he can't get high grade he will
have it as high as he can get it, anyhow.
There is nothing fickle about John, nor
anything of the nature of a chicken, either.
Tbe Bloomington Bulletin suggests
that, if the Republicans nominate General
Logan for preaident in 1884, tbey should
nominate Mrs. Logan for vice-ptesident.
"if General Logan is to head the ticket,"
says the Bulletin, "where are you going to
lodge the strength of the ticket if not in
the taill" If the suggestion be scted upon
the next champaign will furnish an illustri
ous example of "the tail wagging tha dog,"
which would make it one of the mest
amusing campaigns of the century.
-Missouri Republican: "What exem
plary devotion the Republican senators at
Washington manifest in behalf of the
union veterans in the employ of the senate.
Their caucus twice formally resolved to re
tain all the union veterans upon the roll,
but in despite of this solemn pledge of
friendship, every man of them voted to put
a reconstructed Republican rebel in tha
office of sergeant-at arms, notwithstanding
a veteran soldier of the union army was an
applicant tor the place. Imagine tha re
sounding roar of righteous indignation
which would have rolled through the land,
if the Democratic senators had done this.
The Republicsn party is for the union man
first, last and all tbe time, unless there
happens to be an ex-rebel who is willing to
vote and work for the Republican ticket."
Alderman Harry Walker haa made a
new venture in the amusement business
is "spreading himself," as it were. He has
leased a theatre building in Memphis, and
is now taking active measures to give the
people there a permanent additional variety
show. He will leave, for Memphis to-day
to prepare for the opening. Mr. Jeff. M.
Clark, ot the firm of Clark & Lovett, will
accompany him and will take the contract
of painting, papering and decorating the
building previous to the opening. Mr.
Walker has had long practical experience
in the management of variety shows and
has found how to make it successful. His
new venture will not take him away from
Cairo. He will continue his business here
and, when the other is well under way, give
the Cairo business bis uninterrupted per
The senate now stands thirty-eight Re
publicans, thirty-six Democrats and two
Independents, Messrs. Mahooe and Rid
dleberger, who may be counted as Repub
licans. That makes substantially forty
Republicans to thirty-six Democrats. The
terms of twenty-five senators will expire on
March 3, 1885, and their succestors will be
chosen during the winter of 1884 by legis
latures in part to be elected at the same
time with the next president and congress.
Of these fourteen are now Democrats and
eleven Republicans. Tbe Democratic seats
to be vacated are from Alabama, Arkansas,
California, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Ken
tucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Missouri,
North Carolina, Oregon and South Carolina.
The Republicans are from Colorado, Con
necticut, Illinoli, Iowa, Kansas, Nevada,
New Hampshire, New Tork, Pennsylvania,
Yernont and Wisconsin.
Cairo may be proud of ber brick side
walks, of which thousands of feet were laid
within the last six months. They are per
manont imDrovements in their way aud
will prove economical in the end. Expe
rience has proven in various cities that
brick is the most durable of all materials
for paving purposes, even for street pave
nienta. Bloomington tried it for street
paving and found it satisfactory m every
way, and now, after St. Louis had ex peri
niented unsatisfactorily with wood, asphalt,
granite and other materials for pavements,
a hundred public-mindud men contributed
fifty dollars each toward a fund to test fire
brick tor paving purposes. The test was
made in the busiest streets. A committee
of engineers and others have just reported
that "fire brick show all the endurance of
granite, and that they make a smoother,
cleaner and loss noisy street, and are more
easily repaired and give a better foothold
to horses; that neither frost or fire eflects
them, and that they can be used at less
than tbe cost of granite."
Several days ago considerable excite
ment ptevailed on this end of the Cairo
short line from Anna down. "It seems,"
says tbe Carbondale Criterion, "that the en
gineer of a south bound freight train, which
left there about 0 o'clock, saw a gang of
man on both sides of a bridge a few miles
south of there and the conclusion wu once
arrived at that they were train-robbers,
waiting to wreck snd rob the through ex
press train due there at about 6 o'clock, but
which was that night several hours late.
As soon ss possible the intelligence wu
wired to Cairo, and the marshal of Anna
wu ordered to summon a posse and be
ready to capture the gang. Conductor
Morgan of the express train was informed
of what might be suspected at that bridge
and posted tha express messenger and
other trainrflen. As there were only
two coal boxes in the baggage car,
and as they were taken by the express
messenger and baggageman. Charley
Marbaugh, travelling passenger agent for
the Gould lines, stowed away bis gold
watch and other valuables in his boots, and
gruping his revolver secured safe quarters
in one of the sleepers. The place of the
expected attack wu neared, and the excite
ment on board the train was intense. Ev
ery shooting-iron wu in readiness. Now
the train slows up to avoid the obstructions
which might 'be in the way. Now tbe
speed increases, and the train rushes over
the bridge and past the gang of section
men, who were watching the effects of the
raging stream, which had been suddenly
swollen by tbe hard rain of that afternoon.
Tbe freight train men mistook the section
men for train wreckers."
Unlike Cairo, which has for over six
months pused been at work on her levees
and banks, and has now about completed
all that needs to be done to hold back any
flood that the heavens can pour down upon
us, the cities above us who last year suf
tersd untold losses and misery from flood
sre only now beginning to tal k of prepar
ing for tbe next spring rise. Tbe people
living in the American bottoms protected
by the Sny levee above East St. Louis are
just beginning to talk about strengthening
tbe levee in order that it may not, like last
year, give away and permit hundreds of
thousands of dollars worthy ot property to
be swept away by the water. A writer iu
the Hannibal Journal urges raising and
strengthening the Byn levee and gives tho
following interesting facts in the course of
his letter: "There are about 16,340 acres
subject to overflow. Of this there is, it is
estimated, over one-third, or 6,000 acre,
now in wheat, that would be destroyed if
the levee should break between this and
(he 15th of July. It is fair to say ihat the
yield would be 20 bushels to the acre (and
much more is expected)', amounting to 120,
000 buehels, worth $1 per bushel, or f 120,
000. One-fourth oi this amount would
harvest, thresh and market the crop. Then
the actual loss in wheat alone would bo
(90,000. It is estimated that tbore will be
planted in corn and other spring crops as
much u there is in wheat, or at least 6,000
seres, and much more tban this would bo
put in if there wu no doubt of tbe levee
standing the coming water. Fifty bushels
is a low estimate per acre, or a total of
300,000 bushels, worth in the field 80 cts.
per bushel, or (90,000 dead loss on corn.
Total loss in wheat and corn, (180,000, to
say nothing of other losses, and damages to
stock, fences and property generally." He
estimates the cost to increase the heighth
two teet and base tan feet would be about
(16,000 from the bridge north less than
(1 per acre, or ten cents per dollar of prop
erty to be protected.
