From the Irish World of March 11, 1882.
E.x-Secrutary Blaine is announced to
spenk in St. L juij, at a binquet given by
the Kniijljts of St. Patrick, on the evening
uf the 18'h nf March. A more unfit selec
tion coulil hanlly be made, aa it is-an insult
to the intelligence of self-respecting Irish
Americans to ask them to listen on St. Pat
rick's Day to a man who refused to stir a
finger to release from British dungeons
American citizens of Irish descent illegally
arrested, although at the time it was his
duty to see that these citizens were either
accorded a trial by jury or released from
Mr. Blaine is reported as having Presi
dential aspirations. He sees no chance of
getting a nomination from the Republican
party, and it is said that he is determined
to run on an Independent ticket. As Mr.
Elaiue is a thorough demagogue ha thinks,
perhaps, that he may succeed in winning
some Irish-American votes by figuring as
one of the orators at a St. Patrick's ban
quet, lie forgets that his presence at such
a meeting after what he has done is an
insult to every intelligent Irishman present.
Does he for a moment suppose that
American citizenn, with Irish blood in
their veins, will ever forget that when he
was Secretary of State he allowed Ameri
can citizens residing in Ireland to be ar
rested and imprisoned on mere suspicion,
without his calling the British Government
to account for this violation of internation
al law, as he was ic duty bound to do?
The other day, in his eulogy on the late
President Garfield, Blaine gave us as a rea
son why he acted in this way when going
out of his way to eulogize Gladstone he
said: "One is reminded of that great
English statesman of to-day, who, con
fronted with obstacles that would daunt
any but the dauntless, reviled by those he
would relieve as bitterly as by those whose
supposed rights he is forced to invade, still
labors with supreme courage for the amel
ioration of Ireland and for the honor of the
Not to add to the obstacles of this "great
English statesman,1' our pro-British ex
Secretary of State, whilst in office, allowed
American citizens to be arrested and im
prisoned without trial. We can under
stand bow this conduct would entitle him
to a hearty reception at a gathering of
Anglo-Americans-as, for instance, at a
meeting of the Society of St. George but
what claim it has upon the admiration ot
the Knights of St. Patrtck passes our understanding.

Yesterday was an extremely dull day
about the wharf. No arrivals or depart

Freight in abundance is scattered all
along the Ohio from Evansville to Cincin

The Fowler did not arrive here until 4
o'clock yesterday afternoon. The water on
the chain is getting very low and will
cause the Fowler some trouble unless a rise
occurs very soon.
Capt. Hiram Hill succeeded in getting
the large Democratic pole to the top of the
levee yesterday without much trouble, by
the use of his steam capstan on board tbe
wrecking boat Charley Hill.
The Henry A. Tyler is now receiving
some repairs preparatory to entering the
St. Louis and Memphis trade during the
low water season, which will soon shut out
some of tbe big Anchor line boats.
A man who came down from Paducah
last Sunday with the base ball crowd on
the Gus Fowler was drowned yesterday af
ternoon at 3 o'clock. He fell from the out
side guard of wharf boat No. 2, and drown
ed without a struggle. He had been dissi
pating pretty freely ever since he arrived
here. He was a cigar maker by trade and
worked for Mr. Chas. Neihaus, in Paducah,
and was a man of rather respectable appear
ance and intelligent when sober. Had
dark skin, black mustache, and about 35
years old. Mr. Redman's little boy had
only a few moment before he tell over
board cautioned him as to the danger of
sitting so near the edge of the guards, but
he remarked that if he should fall over
boand and drown it would be but small
A Queer Disease. ,
Attention has lately been drawn to a
disease met in Siberia, known to the
Russians by the name of "Miryachlt"
The person affected seems compelled
to imitate anything he hears or sees
and an interesting account is glvon of
a steward, who was reduced to a por
foct state of misery by his inability to
avoid imitating everything he heard or
saw. One day the captain of the
steamer, running up to him, suddenly
clasping his hands at the same time,
accidentally slipped, and fell hard on
the deck. Without having been
touched, the steward instantly clapped
his lands and shouted; then, in help
loss imitation, he too fell as hard and
almost precisely in the same manner
and position as the captain. This
disease has been met with in Java,
where it is known aa "Lata." In tho
case of a female servant who had the
same irresistible tendency to imltato,
one day at dessert her mistress, wish
lng to exhibit this peculiarity, and
catching the woman's ' eye suddenly
reached across the table, and, seizing a
large Frenoh plum, made pretense to
swallow it whole. The woman rushed
at the dish and put ft plum in her
mouth, and, after severe choking and
somi-asphyxla, succeeded in swallow
ing It, but her mistress never tried tho

To tho Eilltcr Cairo Bulletin:
To those that are alllicted with cancer,
tumors, ulcers or any chronic diseases
read this and be rejoiced to know that we
have such a wonderful lady in onr midst.
I announce to tho world my heartfelt
thanks to Mrs. Dr. Amelia Phelps, who
cured me of cancer on the neck.
About 9 years ago I discovered a small
growth in my neck. I paid no attention to
it until this year, 1884, it began growing
so fast that I became alarmed at it. 1
went to several of the best doctors that I
knew of, some pronounced it fatty tumor,
some a wen, some a flesh growth. I was
advised by a doctor friend of mine to let it
go and not have it cut out for it was in a
dangerous place to be worked on with a
knife, for it had built its main foundation
on tbe main leader close to the main jug
lar vein in my neck. I knew not what to
do. I heard of Dr. Phelps and I went to
her. She pronounced it a brain cancer and
told me that she could take it out, kill it
in the blood without the use of costics or
knife, cancer falling out and leaving all of
the good flesh, touching nothing but the
cancer. Of course I was like all others.
The doctors told me she would kill me and
I feared her, but she had all proofs ot ber
works in the world. She bad cancers of
every description that she had taken out
enough to satisfy anyone. She gave me a
list of a hundred and fifty names and told
me to write to any of them and ask them
what she had done for them, and if she
was a fraud. So I let ber go to work on
my neck. She applied her plaster and told
me to go on about my business, that in 24
hours she would take it off. It went right
down in around tho cancer and killed it,
and inside of four weeks, just as sho said,
it dropped out by the roots leaving the
leaders bare. It is now filled up with
good flesh and is nearly healed up. Will
be sound and well inside ot 4 or a days.
My wife has been under the doctors for
over a year and they did ner no good
Bhe has been under Mrs. Dr. Phelps for 8
weeks and she is now fast getting well
When yo go to Dr. Phelps's office and tell
ber you are sick she don't take up a pre
scription book and sell you a piece ot pa
per. She isn't thinking of selling you an
other to-morrow and of a years practice if
your constitution will stand it.
You had better try Dr. Phelps. Look
around and see how much paper you have
bought inside of a year and then count
yrjur profit on it, then look around and see
how manv bottles of medicine is setting
around with about one dose taken out of
them, then after they (the doctors) quit
drugging you and you begin to pick up
and look a little better they will say "I
did it," yes, drained your pocket-book and
left you to die because you didn't hare
money enough to pay him to ding you to
death. How many poor women to-day is
there in this town that their lives are be
ing druged out of this world for the sake of
selling a little piece of paper. It ought to
be against the law for a doctor to write a
prescription. He ought to buy his medi
cine and then he would see where the cost
comes in and maybe there would not be so
many lives dosed out of this world. I wish
to recommend to all those who are afflicted
with that dreadful malady, the cancer or
cataract, tumors, ulcers, growths and all
kinds of chronic diseases try Dr. Phelps.
No charges made for consultation. She has
been a practitioner of medicine for 21
years; and in the State of Illinois and in
Chicago over 12 years. Any one doubting
this go to her office and get her references
from all of the most aristocratic doctors in

Brown, on 34th street, Cairo, III., and I
will not only tell you but show you what
she did for me, and can point out several
females in this town to you that have been
under the doctor a year or more and she
cured them. Go to her office between 20
and 21 on Commercial and see the samples
