The temperature at fourteen points re
ported from lan evening ranged from two
degrees above zero at Bumarck to forty

The Woman's Club and Library Asso

comprised, among other things a selection
entitled "The Habit of Puinst iking," Mrs.
P. E. Powell, and an origiu.il paper upon
"Character and Intelligence," by Mrs. Dr.
H. Wardner, of Anua. A discussion fol

as instructive to listeners. N me who have

- Mr. Harry Walker returned yesterday
from Memphis where he put a Urge force of
carpenters aud painters to work on bis new
theatre. The theatre building is fifty by
oue hundred feet in dimensions; has a
horse-shoe gallery, snd a stage that will
accommodate any troupe of ordinary size
n the country. It will be known as "The
eople's Theatre." Mr. Jeff Clark has
ehjht men at work under him, painting in
side and outside, and, when finished, the
building will be a marvel of beauty com
pared to what it was. It will be several
weeks before every thing will be ready for
the opening, and Mr. Clark will remain
there until ah is done. Mr. Walker expects
to permit only combinations to occupy the
stage of this new theatre.
One of the resolutions passed by the
state teachers association at Springfield the
other day reads as follows: "Resolved
that as members of this ass'Kiation we here
by express our sympathy with those who
suffer by the Us of the Southern Normal
building; that we heartily commend the
prompt actiou ot the faculty and students,
by which not a day was lost from the regu
lar school exercises, aud of the Carbondaie
friends in providing temporary quarters
for school work. We believe that the edu
cational interests of the whole sttte demand
the rebuilding of this structure at the
earliest possible date, and respectfully
recommend su:h action to the state legisla
ture." The association elected Mr. M. An-
rews, of GalesburgJ president, and one
vice president from each congressional dis
trict, this, the Twentieth, being represented
by Miss Mamie Anderson. Mr. P. R. Walk
er, of Ogle, was elected treasurer, and
Messrs. S. M. Ing Us, O. S. Cook and Wm.
Brady, executive committee.
If timber has been cut away in other
sections of the country as rapidly as it is
being taken out in this and adjoining
counties, there is no wonder that tear is en
tertained in sections less fortunate than this
that the country will ere luu feel a scarcity
of timber. Saw-mills stud the woods all
through this section, and our great facto
ries hero have gangs of men employed all
the year around, cutting the finest trees for
various purposes, yet there is no reason to
fear that the present generation or the next
one will experience even tne first symptoms
of scarcity. The cry of "Woodman, spare
that tree," is heard now only in the thickly
settled east and is a warning to manufac
tures there, that they must, one by ono, fol
low Horace Greeley's advice to the young
man. This movement west has already
begun, and as it gains In vulumn Alexander
county and Southern Illinois, but Cairo
particularly as the point to and from which
shipments of raw material or manufactured
articles is easy, and cheaper than to and
from any other point within many miles,
must attract the attention of many in search
of new locations.
Unless somebody does something
worthy of note and interesting to read about
very soou, those who preside over the news
departments of Cairo pipers will be com
pelled, ia order to make things interesting
to the readers, to follow the example of the
city editor of a Denver paper, who, being
aske ', "whats the show for a spicy paper
to morrow" replied, "I don't know yet, but
it looks as though we will be able to pull
through. I have started lour men out gun
ning for tramp, nd had a lot of ties
placed upon every railroad coming into the
city. I bad the coverings to all the coal
vaults about the buildings removed, aud it
is more than likely that we will have a
dandy lot of broken legs and suits against
the city for damages hefore morning. My
new reporter from ( bicago has gone out
with a party of acquaintances to hold a bag
hile they drive the snipe into it, and a
death by accidental shooting is more than
likely in that quarter; I have arranged tn
get the news as soon as it may happen. I
sent the band of Utes, camped out there on
the foot hills, a jug full of delirium tremens
and a box of electioneering cigars. We
can reasonably count on h a popping in
that quarter befoie two hours more, for I
took the extra precaution to direct a lot of
cow boys to a dance in that direction. I've
got a rattling good breach-of promise rack
et in high life, and two floaters, found in
Cherry Creek, near the water works. We
have no new libel suits against us, but if
you Insist on having one of these things
every day, I can work up one of the old
ones all O. K. by adding additional facts. I
was thinking of baring some beautiful
young girl abducted, but that racket is
getting too thin for the heavy coating of
the western stomach. I have just hired a
man to throw the csreas of a dead mule into
the city reservoir, and am now trying to
find some one to rob the First National
Bank and set it on fire. I may not suc
ceed in this, as the officers are watching
pretty closely since the last raid I had
made on the concern. Seven
Leadrille toughs are willing to
make a riot among the Chinese on Wszee
street if I will liquor them all they want.
I tried to compromise on a barrel ot the
disturber, but they said they were no tem
perance fanatics. I think they will come
to my terms before morning. We may not
have a spicy paper exactly, but we will
come pretty near it. If we don't we can
give another one of those cut and dried
Tabor interviews, and dirk three or four
people about midnight, and shoot some
body just before we go to press. Oh, I
guess we can pull through, but the times
ain't what they used to be," sighed the city
editor, as visions of awful deeds rose before
him like glimpses of cherished childuood's
