or an exirav.igant cxpeudituro in any of
tht'so itenm, A wih i eeoo.imony ia desira
ble, but wisu economy often moana liberal
expeadilure. Liberal expenditure on tho
levee, for Instance, in limo of low wat
er, will always prove to liavo been tho
wisest economy, in time of floods. A nig
gardly policy in tho care of our levooa would
bo dangerou.", prub ibly ruinous; a aiiiiilar
policy wiih rcfcienee to noedud internal
improvement would lm more blighting
than a heavy bunded debt could possibly
be, especially in a city naturally na unpre
possessing in nppenranee as Cairo ia Hut
ibere is no need at all of niggardliness in
the management of our public aflairn. Cairo
is not a bankrupt, nor likely to become so;
she ia in better condition llnaucially than
she has been at any time in tho lust twen
ty years; her bonded debt is only about
half what it was; there has been no increase
ia taxation, but a very considerable de
creao within the last aix or seven years;
there have been in.iny important public
improvements; the city is now moro secure
from the rivers than alio has ever been Bince
Iter inauguration ; there is a handsome sum
of cash in the trcasmy, nnd, aa a natural
consequence of all this, her proapects are
bright and future prosperity more certain
than it ever w is before. In view of all thia,
it would be extremely unwise to inaugurate
a policy oj" repression of retrogression, wo
may properly term it in tho matter of in
ternal improvements. The city needa much
improving internally, ns every city duos; its
streets and sidewalks need constant watch
ing, more ao hero than in most other cities
ol this sizo, for there is much heavy traffic
and much travel generally ovor all our
thoroughfares and walks. Nothing renders
a city more unsightly and more unfit for
habitation than dilapblakd w.dks and
streets, and a timely, liberal and judicious
expenditure of money on these will always
be found the most econtgijjcal treatment in
the end. It would b ) dillHilt to And a
matter In which the city government had
spent money unwiBely or extravagantly dur
ing the last six or eight years, nnd, there
fore, equally difficult to rotrench now or
in thejfuture without injuring the city in
one way or another. And there ia no popu
lar demand for greater economy (?) io the
management of tlio city 'a affairs, bo far as
we can learn. It is true, tho people are
heavily taxed, but not for city purposes.
Some of the responsibility fur the heavy
tax should be laid upon the State authori
ties which have assessed the same t ix, now
that the St.tto has no bonded debt, as they
did when it had a heavy bonded debt to
pay; and upon the federal authorities who
collect an indirect tax of over hundred mil
lions in excess of the needa of tbo Govern
ment ;every year. But ;'ao far aa the city
tax is concerned there will doubtless be, as
was recommended by tlio Mayor in bis an
nual address, a material reduction in the
levy for tbis year, and that, too, without
necessitating a aham economy in municipal
expenditures snd an interruption of much
needed worka of internal improvement.
The school district tax will probably also
bo reduced in view of the large surplus in
the fund from last year. Tbise reductions
will afford much rolivf to tax payers and
will probably satisfy, for the time being at
least, even those who feel the burden
heaviest. Let us bave judicious economy,
but save us frnm the blighting effects of

for the State Senate, and some of his friends
insist nn his promotion to tho upper bouse

never had a Senatar since the adoption of
the constitution of 1870. Thero ia neither
policy nor reason for giving up the Senator
ship any longer to the other counties. Alex

of Union County, if we ask the Senator

asked tho old lady.
"Dat ain't nono o' yo' bithness," re

"Oh, that isn't at all polite," said
the old lady, looking roprovingly over
her spectacles. "Perhaps I will givo

"Do you ever say your prayers?"
pursued the old lady.
"No'm. Don't nevorthay no pra'rs.",
"Donr mo!" ejaculated tho old lady,
in a shockod touo. "When you go to
bod at night, don't you pray to be tak

afraid something will happen to you if
you don'tP" .
"No: wot's de use, I ain't afraid o'

Whore's whatcher goin' tor gimme?"

How Ho Shot tho ranthor.
'J hrnn or four passengers struck up
a conversation in a smoking car on the
Bitliiiuore & Ohio, and, of course, each
man had to tell a story. They wore re

It was up in old Vairmon't, 'bout seven
year ago. 1 was a-koepln' a sugar bush

when I waked up out o' a cntnnp, and,
by gosh, up la a troo, not moro'n twen
ty feet from mo, was tho two shlnin'
oyoa of a whoppln' big painter. An' I
could seo his tail a-wliiskln' remind as
if ho wns just rendv to spring at mo.
Wall, I was too old a camper to run
'rom a linlnter, so I got oout my old
gun and givo him ono right between
the eyes. But I'll bo gosh-dnrned if ho
ever stirred, but kept on whiskln' his
tall. So, kinder cool like, I gl-i him
another one, cal'clatln' thnt would lix

I begun to get a leotlo kind o' skoorod,
but 1 kept on peppetin' him with load,
