It is claimed that the Callendar Min

On account of the crowded condition
of the primary department in the colored
schools, the Bchool board has rented a
room at the corner of Eighteenth street and
Washington avenue, occupied last year by
Mr. Reed Green's school, and will fit it up
as a branch. New scats have been ordered
and it is hoped the room will be in readi
ness for school to open next Monday morn

ed. Smith & Brinkmeyer havo improved
tho appearance of their business house by
removing the wooden awning from its
front. This is an example worthy of imita
tion by many of our merchants. Tho shed
roofed nuisances, wbilo they may do some
good, are very unsightly, and utterly coun
teract any architectural beauty a building
may posseFS. They look well enough in
front of a general store in a country town,
but in a city like Tairo, in front of sub
stantial brick buildings with plate glass
windows, they look as much out of place as
a pair of brown overalls would on a dude.
Union City, Tenn., is excited over
some recent arrests in that vicinity. For
somo months past burglaries and petty
thetts have annoyed the citizens of that
place, and the farmers near there. The
authorities have had their suspicions but
have been unable to fasten the acts on
anybody until this week, when a colored
detective who hud been employed to work
the matter up, filed iu format ion leading to
the arrest of three negroes who were com
mitted to jail. Parties who arrived in our
city last night say that yesterday afternoon
word was received at Union City that two
more negroes had been arrested and an ex
cited crowd of nearly 1,000 had gathered
at the depot to meet tho officers and pris
oners. Our informant said it was likely
Judgo Lynch would hold high court there

An interesting legal question has arisen
in Arkansas. Joe Bayard, a negro, was
hanged at Lonoke on tho 27th of AugUbt,
and, after being suspended by the neck
forty minutes, was pronounced dead and
his body delivered to his father. The old
man carted his dead son off to an adjoining
county for burial, but as tho funeral party
jogged along through the woods a loud
groan was uttered by the corpse. This un
usual performance on the part of a body
from which the spirit had departed some
hours before caused a panic among tho
mourners, but one bold pall bearer, know
ing, probably, his ruling passion in life,
pourod a bottle of "moonshine" in the cav
ity whenco tho groan had escaped. Bay
ard rallied under this spiritual treatment,
and called for "more." "And," sayi tho
veracious chronicler of tho Arkansaw mira
cle, "by the timo the father's liouso in
Prairlo county was reached, Joe was able
to got out nf the wagon without assist
ance." And now come the relative of tho
lately deceased and want legal advice on
tlio question: "Can a man bo arrejtod for
crimo of which ho has been once convicted
and for which ho has been executed f"
Had another fine audience taut night, quito
as large as the previous eveuing, and it is
safo to say that the attendance- was moro
than satiated with the rendition of the
piccu And the splendid scenic and median
ical effects, which are embraced in so elab
orate a presentation. Every member of
the company of over thirty people is thor
oughly np to the text, and tho smooth, sys
tematic manner in which everything moved
along, the absenco of the prompter's voice
or tlu failure of a single mjve in all the
splendid scenery in fact, the perfect sys
tem with which the minutest detail was
sunvuaded, wero a source ol pleasure to the
audience, aud constitute the key-note of
the great success which' has uttended thu
play throughout the country. Miss B-tker
as Gertie won the hoarts of her hearers be
fore she had been on the stage a moment.
Her sweet face, graceful bearing, perfectly
modulated voice, with an utter absence of
mannerisms which so often hanJicaptlie
best talent, combined with ja must simple
and becoming costume, could not well do
otherwise than carry the large audience by
storm. The little lady was evidently the
primo favorite of the evening. Miss Good
rich as Lura Lee was well received. With
a voice of considerable power, a thorough
understanding of the requirements of tho
Character, she at times displayed a forcu
and pathos that won tho greatest applause.
To) much cannot bo said of tho Mother
Sbipton of Madame Neuville. We regard
it as tbe most perfect piece of acting that
has been rendered here in many years. In
the cellar scone, where tho old hag appears
as tho accomplice of a trio of murderous
scoundrels, her croaking, her "Ycp, my
dearie," actually made one's blrod chill, so
realistic was the character portrjyed. Fur
ther on when tho mother love uukee her
woman's heart assert itself as she is in the
very act of administering poison to the
handsome prisoner, and she determines to
save Ins life at the risk of her own, she
rises to a point of dramatic power rarely
reached except by a talent of a very high
order. We were constantly reminded of
the grand and powerful Mrs. Wa'ler in her
palmy days when her rendition of the great
character of Meg Merrelies was pronounced
by many intelligent critics to bo superior
to that of Charlotte Cushnmn. Mr. Han
dyside as Jack Hearno, the gypsy gentle
man, was a success throughout, while Mau
rice Drew portrayed the villainous Philip
Royston with such effect that he was heart
ily despised by the audience the true test
of an actor's ability. James P. Conyers as
Boss Euivett scored a decided hit. His
make-up, dialect, etc., wore applauded to
the letter. Thero is not a single stick in
the company, which is saying a good deal
for a combination of this magnitude.
"Romany Rye" will always receive a
warm welcome from a Cairo audience, and
we but echo a general wish in expressing a
hope that they may be induced to return
here at some future time.
A Grumbler Speaks.
I was pleased to notice in your poper a
few days ago a letter from 'C." in regard
to closing the stores in tho evening. Tho
evil complained of is a grievous one, and I
trust the matter will be agitated and in
vestigated until some action is taken.
There are other euhj icts which I think
might bo noticed nn I n which changes
would refiect credit on our now prosperous
city. As I came down Commercial avenue
yesterday I noticed that the merchants had
samples of goods piled iM frrit of their
stores, as usuhI, but it whs almost impossi
ble to tell what the good. w n, on account
of thick deposits of d u,t on them. Surely
some plan c mM ho adopted to prevent so
much dust blowing hI Kit all th'j time.
Then tho liiils-an.l-vil:- h sidewalk on th
levee is a terrible nuisance to pedestrians,
aud as it is one of the first things strangers
notice, it must give them a very bud im
pression of our city. In somo parts of town
the old wooden sidewalks hvo become so
dilapidated that they cannot bo used, and
it would be better to tear them down than
permit thein to remain in their present
condition neither useful nor ornamental,
but on tho contrary unsightly and danger
ous. Our opera bojsa is a thing of beauty,
aod a credit to our city, but even it could
bo made more pleasant by placiuir a police
man in the gallery, whoso duty it would be
to eject any rowdy who indulges in noisy
talk, or whistling, to the iruat discomfort
of others who go to bo entertained.
Another thing I cannot refrain from men
tioning, though this is, perhaps, a personal
instead of public matter. It is the way
some of tho boys who carry handbills
around town do their work. I don't know
how it is with others, but I havo a small
front yard which I try to keep ueat and
tidy. The boy who scatters handbills is
tho worst thing I have to contend with.
Every now and then ono comes alon and
scatters a whole handful of bills in my
yard.. I do not object to merchants adver
tising, and commend tho spirit which
prompts them to do so. but tho boys
should be taught that one bill of a kind is
enough for ono family, aud more than ono
is simply rubbish. No doubt somo will
think these matters are, trifling, but as some
one has said, "trifles make perfection, aud
perfection is no trifle." A Guumbmh.
