Delegates have been chosen to the
Democratic National Convention in mu
states so far, the aggregate number beitig
200. Tilden gets 84, Randall 60", and Car
lisle and Butler 28 each. For all practical
purposes, however, the whole lot may be
set down as solid for the grim and whin
penng sago of Gramercy whenever he sees
fit to open the bun of that bar'l.

The Government is about to issue new
notes of different denominations. The new
note will be a "slate-back or "gray-back."
The design it the result of the determina
tion of the Government to devise a note
which could not be ''raised" from the
amount for which it was issued. This
point is secured by the removal of the ver
. tical row of figures signifying dollars in the
old note, and the substitution of a set of
coupons at tho left of the notes, each repre
tenting a dollar. For a note of $1.23 the
dimes and cents will be punched in the
new note from rows of figuref situated as in
the old note, and the dollars will be denoted
by tearing off three coupons and leaving
one joined to the note.
Some time ago the Lancaster & Rice
Company lost two fine mules which strayed
away. It was said that they had been tied
up in the woods some miles above here, by
some one who expected to be rewarded for
returning thera. But no reward was offi-red
by the company and an offer to find and re
turn the mules for a specified sum of money
was not accepted. Some days ago one of
the mules was accidentally found and on
Tuesday the other oue was also recovered
near Mr. Sol. Silver's farm at Villa Ridge,
to where be had strayed.
Mr. John Reeve is still in the field rs a
candidate for the State Senate on the Re
publican ticket. Sitae of the delegates to
the Senatorial Convention have given him
to understand that his cause is not entirely
hopeless, and between now and the 20th ot
June, the date fixed for the convention, he
may be able to do some very effective work.
Jno. is not easily eat down upon, and it is
just possible that the convention, like the
girl you read about, will finally marry
John just in order to get rid of him. Suc
cess often depends more upon the persist
ency with which it is pursued than upon
the worthiness of the pursuer.
There hasn't been any very loud talk
about a Fourth of July celebration in this
city as yet. Can't some of our many so
citties combine and get up something that
will attract the people who live around us?
These people would rather came to Cairo
than to any other placo within a hundred

announcement that there will be "some

to work on that structure in St. Mnrr's

as comfortable as the horses that mav be
The argument in the Kate Cotton case
took up all day in the Circuit Court yester
day. Mr. Ilendricks closed his opening
argument for the prosecution about 9
o'clock. Mr. Mulkey followed for the de
fense and spoke till six o'clock at night, or
about eight hours altogether. Mr. Linegar
began the closing argument for the prose
cution about 7 o'clock and was still speak-
ng at 10 o'clock last night. The Court
room was literally packed with people al
most from the beginning of Mr. Lincgar's
speech. The seats were all occupied all
day yesterday, but at night there was not
standing room in the auditorium, and the
upper strata of the air in the Court-room
was so thick you might have cut it out in
chunks with the aid of blasting powder.

stealing a ride. Hardly a day passes that
"narrow escapes" of this kind might not
be recorded. With our vigilant council it
is a strange thing that the youth of the city
it not protected against these dangers in
some way or other. No railroad company
should be permltsed to run any freight
trains within a mile if the city limits after
4 o'clock a. m. and before 9 o'clock p. m.

in doors. A few passenger trains might be
permitted to enter and leave the city be

run very carefully; they should avoid boys
wherever they may be and should be accom

It is to be hoped that the prayers of
