Do Not Be Deceived.
In these times of quack medicine adver
tisements everywhere it is truly gratifying
to find one remedy that is worthy of praise
and which really does as recommended.
Electric Bitters we can vouch for as being
a true and reliable remedy, and one that
will do as recommended. They invariably
cure Stomach and Liver Complaints, Dis
eases of the Kidneys and Urinary diffi
culties. We know whereof we speak, and
can readily say, give them a trial. Sold at

Two stesmboatmen named George
Williams and Mike Murphy, quarrelled on

it impossible to convince Mike that he wu
wrong, George picked up a hatchet and
struck him in the right eye, laying him out
for several seconds and catting him badly,
but not dangerously. A warrant wu issusd

At a meeting of the school board Wed
nesday a committee wu appointed to en

committee will look at the proposition
from all sides and take into consideration
also the desires of the parents of children,
concerning the change. It la believed that
a change of several of the text books la use
would prove very advantageous.
The night police force, themselves
doubtless suffering not a little from the se
vere cold during the lut few nights, were
again on the lookout for the homeless wan
derers in the city and directing them to the
engine houses and other places where fires
were kept up at the direction of the au
thorities for their upeoial benefit. The

Mr. H. C. Murrah, of Frankfort, hu
been at Creel Springs the put week in the

The work commenced this morning and
will be pushed rapidly to completion. The

Cairo immediately, they having bought

building is to be completed in time for the
spring term of school. Still the boom con
tinues to move at a good rate.
Judge Baker left yesterday for Jones-
boro. He will bo back to-day if nothing
interferes to make him change his pro

motions for new trials in the Nanninger
Luts case, the Mah-ffy-Wabash railroad
company case, the Sheehaa -Fitzgerald case
and the Bross-Cairo St Vincennea railroad
company case. In the lut named case he

Alderman Harry Walker left again
yesterday for Memphis, to look after his
tbnttre there. He says positively that he
does not contemplate removal from thie
city, nor the sale nor closing up of his busi
ness here. He says he expects to run his
institution here, in the same building it
now occupies, until be snail be able to put
up a floe brick house iostead of the present
frame, and will then run it on a larger
scale than ever. For the time being he wil
of course have to divide his time between
here and Memphis more than will bo neces
sary after a little while.
With tho advent of the cold wave
complaints of suffering for neceuariee of
life again come rolling in at police head
quarters and to the mayor. Yesterday a
white woman, who hu lived here for four
years and been a widow two years, and sup
ported herself and two little children by do-
lag whatever she could get to do, called
upon the, mayor for aid. She said she
could get along well enough during warm
wuthsr, when people would have work
, done that they let alone now; but at pres
ent she was In bard luck and had to
depend upon charity, to a certain extent,
at leut. She said she needed both fuel
and provisions. By direction ot the mayor
theehief sent hsr half a ton ot coal, and a
charitable citizen overheating bar story,
gsve her an order on his grocer for some
provisions. A one-legged negro man wu
also sent coal, and several others were sup
plied with different necessaries.
The 1813 comet waa erst discovered by
Jess Louis Pous, but we've made many an
unsuccessful effort to rediscover 'or. Tho
celestial visitor grows brighter dsy by dsy,
snd if your eyesight is sufficiently keen,
you can locate it any clear night. Tho re
appearance of tbis plsnet is positive proof
of the accuracy with which astronomers aro
enabled to make calculations even in cases
wherein orbits are eccentric. When Pous
discovered the comet seventy-one years sgo,
he predicted it would again bo visible to
the earth's inhabitants in 1888.
Some days sgo an item appeared in
Tax Bullxtin, dipped from an exchange
and credited to it, detailing the adventures
of the passengers on a Wabaah train on the
division of the road, during one of the ex
tremely cold days. From a letter
from the Assistant Superintendent,
dated Mt. Carmal, January 33d, we clip
the following denials of statements made
in said item: "1st The passengers did
not break up any seats and use them for
fuel. 3d The doors were not locked to
prevent passengers .'getting coal from the
tender. 8d The wirea were not down.

Marshall or anywhere else on the Cairo
Postmaster Murphy expressed surprise
yesterday at the large quantity of mail col
lected from the boxes the night before,
showing that the public wu by no mesne
loth to avail itself of the new convenience.
The box at the corner of Sixth street sn J
Commercial avenue wu especially favored,
for it wu very nearly full. The np town
boxes were all wellpatronized, each of them
containing several pounds of matter of dif
ferent descriptions. It is tut reuonable
to suppose that tbsre will be an increase in
the business of ths office here by reason of
this new institution. Msny letters and
postal cards will bs written now and drop
ped into a box at the street corner in pus
ing, that would not be written if they had
to be carried a half mile or further to the
The House committee on postage, hav
ing adopted the recommendation of Post
muter Genersl Gresham reducing the post
age on drop letters to one cent, and on
transient periodicals to one cent for every
three ounces, it is probable that the reduc
tion will be made. It is right and proper
that postage should be u low u is com
patible with the postal department's re
maining a self-sustaining institution. To
go bsyond thst is simply paying Peter with
money taken from Paul. There is said to
be a prospect .that the deficiency for this
year will reach $8,000,000. Only a suffi
cient incrsuo in the amount of mail matter
to make good this deficiency and put the
department again on a self-sustaining basis
can justify the policy of reduction. In
time, the increase in mail will probably
make good the falling away, but only time
can settle the question.
Yesterday afternoon's wea'her report
indicated a fall of one inch in the barome
ter at Bismarck, during the twenty-four
hours ending at 3 o'clock. Sergeant Ray
ssys this is the greatest fall of the barome
ter he has met with since his connection
with the signal office here, and he believes
that the result of the fall will be a generel
breaking up of the existing state of things
in the air a storm of some kind. The
temperature at Bismarck, North Platte and
Dodge City went up 81, 34 and 7 degreea
respectively, and the wind was southwest,
west snd north respectively. At each of
the other points named in the report the
temperature fell heavily. Sergeant Ray
expressed the opinion last night, that last
night would be colder here even than the
night before had been, but that to-day
would be not ao cold as yesterday was.
That there would be a general thaw
throughout the circuit, accompanied by
rain and some wind.
Judge Bird hss been making the
round of the city several times now, gath
ering up the mail from the boxes in differ
ent parts of the city; and he has timed him
self accurately, so that Capt. Murphy is
able now to furnish very nearly the exact
time when the mail will be taken up at
etch box, as fellows: In the morning, at
Bealsy's drug store, 8:07; New York store,
18:13; Barclay'a Eighth street drug store,
8:34; H. H. Candee's residence, corner
Fourth and Washington, 8:39; Halliday
Hotel, 8:34; corner Sixth and Commercial
avenue, 8:40; City National Bnk, 8:44;
Alexander County Bank, 8:48; C.R. Wood
ward's store, 8:52; Siono depot, 8:55. In
the afternoon, between the hours of 3 and 8
o'clock, the same division of time will gov
ern the collection u in the morning, and
the hour between 8 and 0 o'clock at night
will be divided likewise. Little cards
bearing the exact time of morning, after
noon and night, at which the mail will bo
taken up at each box, will be put np in tho
frame made for the purpose in the front of
each box. The mail will be taken up
promptly at each box at the time men
tioned, and none will bo skipped; so that
the public may rest assured of the depar
ture of their mail on time, if it is in the
boxes on time.
