Cairo, III., March 12, 1884.
Thin metropolis of Southern Illinois is
just now congratulating herself upon the
triumphant manner in which she passed
through the great flaoJ and came out
with only the soles of her feet a little
damp, 83 to -peak. Three weeks ago when
I passed through Cairo, southward bound,
things had a b3 1 look and very few would
have given a sum above a nickel for her
chances of escaping a disastrous flood.
The Ohio was a vast mud-colored sea,
reaching from a point alarmingly near the
top of the Illinois levee for a distance far
ther than the eye could reach oul over the
historic soil of old Kentucky. The water
was well up above the level of the town,
and a break in the Itvee would have caused
Cairo to share the fate of her numerous up
river sister towns. That the levee did not
break and that the citizons experienced no
Inconvenience s:ve from the encroachments
of "s'.-cp'' water in the low places which,
by the way, they unanimously claim to be
aavantageous from a stuitary point of
view has been and still is a matter for
universal rejoicing and patriotic pride. It
demonstrates, they argue, that the levees
must be beyond the danger line to with
stand two successive floods of such un
paralleled magnitude, and that property in
Cairo is 83 secure as it would be a hundred
miles away from the two great rivers, whose
emtio tendencies to get up in the world
have become a national problem, upon the
proper solution of which any amount of in
tellect and no little money is being brought
After the high water trouble of the
spring of 1883, the Illinois Central Railroad
Company raised its tracks and consequent
ly the levee along which it runs, some two
feet, and now its managers can point with
a great and entirely justifiable pride to the
fact that theirs was the only railroad
whse trains crossed the "flood line" in
1834 uninterruptedly. This the Illinois
Central trains did without a skip, while at
every other point between Pittsburg and
Cairo, including the former, the railroads
were drowned cut and blockaded for days
and even weekB. Supt. Jeffery, whom I
last saw standing on the deck of the com
pany's transfer steamer, with one eye on
the water and the other on the levee, may
well feel proud of his achievement; the
citizens of Cairo are proud of both it and
him, and the stockholders of his company
ought to be likewise.
Cairo is not the most prepossessing city
in the world to visit in wet weather; but
investigation will disclose the fact that
there is more to it than appears on the sur
face. In the first place it rejoice? in a first
class hotel, which is kept in first-clasa
.style. The Ilalhday house was erected a
. few ytarB ago by one of the moat enterpris
ing cinzenB of Southern Illinois, whose
name it bears, and rumor hath it that his
stipulation with the lessees was to the effect
that it should always be kept in a first
cmss nnnner, tvea if the owner had to bo

drained by ths Ohio and
w. . . r
wnose waters unite at her door. In fact to
a student of the map of these great valleys
it would seem that all rivers lead to Cairo.
The Tennessee, the Cumberland, and the
Wabash reach out into regions that are
ricli in timber and mineral resources. On
the alluvial bottom land, along the Ohio
and Mississippi, within easy reach ot this
city, is a very fino growth of timber con
sisting of whito oak, ash, cottonwood,
cypresF, gum, pycamore, pecan, elm, hack-
berry, etc. The last named is a wood of
which but little is known or used but is
destined to come into use for finishing pur
poses. It takes a fine polish and in color
somewhat resembles white ash. The oak
and hickory is of the kind best adapted
to the use of agricultural implement
makers, as it is tough, and yet, like all
other products of alluvial soil, and a com
paratively warm climate, easy to work. A
wagon factory located at Burling
ton, Iowa, obtains its supply
of hickory from the Kentucky side of the
Ohio, opposite Cairo, the logs being put in
at a little place called Wickliffe. Poplar is
used here also to a considerable extent in
the manufacture ef fruit boxes, the logs
coming from aomo distance up the Ohio
out of its numerous tributaries. A promi
nent citizeu informed me that bo had re
ceived a taft of poplar logs that had been
floated out of the Cumberland river, all tho
way from We6t Virginia. Manufacturing
establishments located here may thus take
their nick of timber from the forests of
Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia, Ohio,
Indian and Seuthern Illinois, bringing logs
from any of them directly to this place by
water. As one gentleman enthusiastically
remarked, "we can bring white pine logs
from Wisconsin down here and saw them
up if we want to."
A year or two ago the Singer Manufac
turing Company sent out agents to look foi
the most eligible location in the country to
establish a factory for the manufacture of
sewing machine tables. The search was
for a spot where an inexhaustible supply of
timber could be most conveniently ob
tained, and Cairo was the place selected as
best adapted to fill tho requirements. Va
rious stories have been afloat ever since re
garding the Singer company's experiments
with gum lumber as a material for table
tops. Owing to the reticence of the com
pany regarding its efforts in this direction
very little reliable information lias ever
found its way to the public. It was with
particular gratification that I embraced a
fortunate opportunity to visit the works
and inspect the methad of working up and
treating this much abused and singularly
The Singer company's plant consists of a
factory and several acres f ground, upon
which other buildings are to be erected a3
the business develops. Oum logs are cut
by a drag saw into the required lengths for
table tops and tbe "bolts" dropped into
vats of boiling water, where they are
cooked until sufficiently "done" to work
well in the veneering machines, in which
they are sliced up iuto strips, five ot which
make an inch in thickness. The fine, close
grain of the gum combined with its exceed
ing softness especiallw commends it for
this kind of work. The slices of veneer
are then taken to a drying apparatus',
which is a novelty in its way. Suspended
from the ceiling is a row of what, for the
want of a better name, I will call iron
boxes, each of the width and
length of the table top three or four inches
hick, hollow, of course. Through each of
these live steam is passed by means of feed
and exhaust pipes. Between them a single
strip of the veneer is placed and the whole
battery, as it might be termed, clamped
together by a lever. The principle is not
unlike that of the Noyes lumber dryer in
use at the Pullman car shops and which
was on exhibition at tbe National Exposi
tion of railway appliances last fall. It takes
just about twenty minutes to make the
strips of veneer as dry as a bone, the boxes
being undamped once or twice during the
process to admit of a circulation of air and
escape of the moisture.
From the drying apperatus the strips of
veneer go to the gluing room, where the
process consists of putting five strips togeth
er to form a table top as follows : A piece
in which tbe grain of the wood runs cross
wise is laid down, and another, in which
the grain runs lengthwise, is passed be
tween two spongy rollers, revolving in
liquid glue, which give it a coating of that
Bticky substance on each side, and laid
upon tho first one. Then another cross
grained piece, followed by another glued
strip, tho layer finished by the same kind
of a piece as the first, making five pieces
in all, in two of which the grain runs
lengthwise and in the other three cross
wise. A piece of sheet iron is laid over
the top thus formed, and the building pro
cess goes on until a pile something like
three teet high is made, which is put into
a clamping machine, compressed and fast
ened together with iron bauds, not unlike
a bale of coUod in appearance. These are
set away for the glue to harden, after
which they are square edged on a circular
Baw table, and side and end pieces of
either gum or walnut, ns the final finish is
to be gluod on. When these in turn are
ary, me tops are put through pony sur-
faccrs, dressed off smeothly both Bides and
are ready for shipment to the company's
finishing works at Sauth Bend, Ind., where
a final piece of veneer is put on, of either

cannot bo distincuiahed from a solid niece
Tins method of treatment giveB a table
top that can neither warp nor split, and one
mat will hold a screw better than any piece
of solid wood, hard or soft. Finishing
them up with a walnut veneer is merely to
suit the taste of the purchaser. The per
ceniago ot people who prefer it to the
beautiful, satin-like surface of the gum is
growing less each year. By the means
above outlined, the Singer company makes
probably ;he bi'st and moat durable table
top mud upon any machine, and utilizes a
hitherto neglected, if not actually despised,
wood, which could hardly bo given away by
its owners. This method of working it
up cannot fail to commend itself on the
score of economy in the wood itself. The
wasttj is reduced to tho very minimum,
really involving only the sawdust made in
crosscuttiug tho logs. The latter cost
about $3 a thousand, delivered at the fac
tory, in contradistinction to walnut lumber
hitherto used for the same purpose, at a
cost running all tho way from $00 up.
There is literally uo interruption in the
work between the stump and tho finished
tabl' Green logs may bo taken from the
water in the inoriiiug, passed through the
processes 1 have outlined, and shipped as
complete table tops, ready for finishing, in
the afternoon of the sanio day. Tho factory
at present turns out 2,400 of them per day.
Wrrk is already commenced upon new
buildings which are to be constructed in
the mar future, in which tho finishing
work will be done here. The Singer com
pany has a capital of $17,000,000, an 1 sells
its machines in every city throughout tho
world. That it should select Cairo as the
most favorable point for tho location of
such an immense plant is regarded by its
citizens as a substantial recognition of its
merits as a manufacturing center.
A.ljoiuing the factory of tho Singer Man
ufacturing Company is the Cairo Box and
Basket Factory. Tho factory contains a
double circular, gang edger, lumber trim
mer, live rolls, etc., the equipment being of
the improved modern kind, capable of do
ing first-clf.ss work. The lower floor con
tains shingle machinery and a veneer mill
for cutting box stuff, the machinery for
working up which is in an ell of the main
building. An elevated tramway is used to
convey lumber by means of a car and mule
to the piling grounds adjoining the mill,
oa which there was cross-piled, at the time
of my visit, about 4,000,000 feet of hard
wood lumber in all stages of dryness, hav
ing been piled from six months to two
years, lae mill was not running at the
time of ray visit. The stack in pile con
sists of oak, ash, Cottonwood, sycamore,
cypress and gum, tho bulk of it sufficiently
dry to go into immediate use. Better ship
ping facilities could not reasonably be
asked for. The tracks of the Illinois Cen
tral, an unbroken line from Sioux City,
Iowa, and Chicago to New Orleans, run
past the front of the mill and the Wabash
through the yard in tho rear of it. Besides
these, Cairo is the terminus of the Texas &
St. Louis Narrow-gauge, which runs down
across Arkansas into Texts about 800
miles, reaching such points in the latter
State asWaco, Tyhr and Gatesvi'de; the
Mobile & Ohio, which extends through one
of the richest agricultural sections of the
Soutn to the Gulf; the Cairo Short Line to
St. Louis; the Iron Mountain also to St.
Louis; a branch of the great WabaJi sys
tem connecting with the main line at Dan
ville, III., and present prospects indicate
that a branch of the Chesapeake & Ohio
the' great Huntington system will reach
here within the year. Add to all these
ruilroa Is the facilities Cairo possesses for
water transportation, which includes the
Mississippi and Ohio rivers with their navi
gable tributaries, and you can just begin
to comprehend what sort of a natural radi
ating point this must be. Tho check
which one system holds over the other in
sures to Cairo shippers a minimum rate of
freight in almost any direction.
Speaking of the oak timber tributary to
Cairo, my informant said that he was just
getting a raft of logs from Mayfield creek,
near by, the pieces to bo Co feet long and
none less than 28 inches in diameter at the
small end, and he did not seem to consider
as at all uncommon. Cottonwood grows
in this soil with astonishing rapidity. The ,
same gentleman informed mo that he re
ceived a cottonwood log the other day 28
inches in diameter that was only 14 years
old. The case with which loinrr onera-
ns ore conducted in this vicinity would
ostoniah a northwestern logger. The cot
tonwood or gum trees are felled into the
water, the top cut off and the whole trees
made up into rafts and towed to the mills,
where they arc cut into whatever length of
ig that may bo desirable by drag saws as
they are hauled up the slide.
INTERESTING TO LADIES.
Our ladies can hardly fail to have their
attention called this week to the latest
combination of improvements in that most
useful of all domestic implements, the

nearly noiseless as possible; it should bo
light, handsome, durable, and as cheap as
is consistent with excellence throughout.

" ' I have Eutrered with asthma for over
forty years, and had a terrible attack in
December and January, 1882. I hardly
know what prompted me to take Parker's

four doses. The effect astonished me. That
nit'tit I slept as If nothing was tho matter
with me, and have ever since. I hive had
colds since, but no asthma. My breathing
is now as perfect as if I had never known
that disease. If you know of any one who
has asthma tell him in my name that Park
er's Toxic will cure it even after forty
years.' There was a man who escaped the
fate of those the poet laments.
This preparatii n, which has heretoforo
been known as Parker's Ginger Tonic,
will hereafter be advertised and sold under
the name ot Parker's Tonic Inasmuch
as ginger is really an unimportant ingredi
ent, and unpricipled dealers are constantly
deceiving their customers by substituting
inferior preparations under the name of
ginger, we drop the misleading word.
There is no change, however, in the
prepuration itself, and all bottles remaining

The figures showing the enormous year

value as a medicine beyond dispute. It in
purely vegetable compound of certain roots,
leaves and berries known to have epeeiil
valuo in Kidney troubles. Combined with
these are remedies acting directly on the
Liver and Bowels. It is because ot this com
bined action that Kidney-Wort h is proved
such an unequalled remedy in all diseases
of these organs.
