The Kansas City Times gives an amus
ing account of telephone errors, which
would find parallels in Cairo, or any city
afflicted with a telephone exchange. It
tells of how a young lady was shocked by
having, unkuown to her, a butcher boys ac
count of the slaughtering of a calf switch
ed in upon a young nun's dei-crip'ion of
a runaway in which a mutual young lady
friend was concerned. Io the midst of the
account the lady listener heard a voice siy,
"I then cut her throat, grabbed her by the
leg, and" and a dead swoon provented her
hearing the conclusion.
A mistake not txtctly of this kind, but
a pretty good sample of amusing errors
which may occur, is reported fnni the of
fice of a gentleman in this city, and as its
truth is vouched for, it is additionally inter
esting. A young business man rung up,
calling for a geutleman friend. Tho oper
ator mistook the number and a lady's voico
answered, "Hello, what do you want?"
"Well who are you J-'

was centered in tho Western Union and in

Early in the day It was kuown that Con

thought Indiana had gone democratic be
yond a doubt. This narrowed tho fight
down to New York state, as it had been
definitely settled that as New York went
bo would go the presidency. '
Tho news through the day was very con
flicting. Republican dispatches in most
instances claiming the state in doubt with
a faint hopo for Blaine, while democratic
news gave it to Cleveland without reserva

Reviewing the result, yesterday's Globe
Democrat spirkles with such paragraphs as:
"He proved a deadhead in the enterprise
of carrving the country."
"For president in 1888 S rao Man Who
Hasti t Written Any Letters."
"In ro 'Ttll tho Truth' vs. 'Burn this Let
ter,' verdict for plaintiff.
"Belva Lock wood and Ben Butler are
beaten also. That's some consolation."
"Mr. Blaine should have burned these
letters himself, instead of asking another
fellow to do it."
"The trouble began by Blaine's designa
tion of Coukling as a turkey gobbler twen
ty years old. Wo presume the returns
mean that Coukling is not a turkey gob
"Wo believo it was Martin Van Buren
who said he would ra'hcr walk twenty
miles than wnto a letter. If Mr. Blaine
ha 1 taken more walks an 1 written fewer
letters ho might havo been elected."
In tho Twentieth district as well as in
Alexander county and the city of Cairo,
no figures have boon obtained as yet.
Enough has been learned however to in
sure Thomas' re-election by a majority
ranging from 1500 to 2000. He carries
Johnson and Popo counties by an increased
majority over that of two years ago. He
carried Jackson county by ten plurality
and Pulaski county by about 550. In our
own county tho republicans swept tho
platter. A. II. Irvin and R. Fitzgerald
were olectod by small majorities, the only
ones of tho independents who succeed
ed, and tho Colored man of tho ticket will
sit dowu and rest.
"Who is this man Sir Moses Monte-
"He's a philanthropist."
"I understand ho ia over 100 years of
"Yes, he was 100 last Sunday."
