The Lutheran church was crowded
with joyous children and smiling old folks
last evening, who had come thi her to bike

aud presents of vinous kinds, and none
went away empty-handed. An interesting
programme was carried out under the di

of the Sunday school, which reflected cred-
it on all concerned. The Lutheran folks

The Methodist church was well tilled
last evening and all present enjoyed the en

the pulpit were a cross, crown and star, and
below the same in large, white letters
"Christ, our King." The exercises consist
ed of addres-es, responsive readings ano
singing, the latter being under the direc

Two Prominent Citizens En

Tim B.ise Ball (iroii' d the Scene of a
Duel, .ilnu st liiuliiig1 iu a Treguly.
Last right two of Cairo's most promi
nent citizens, who were deadly enemies,
met at the house of a friend whero they be
came involved in a dispute which almost
led to si rioiio r suits. They agreed to set
tle the lung standing feiid by challenging
each other, pistols being the weapons chos
en, n e re I use to givu tile names ol the
parties, owing to their high social standing,
but will call tin 111 Smith and Jones. Both
being I'.n.xn us to light without delay, their
I'rietel.s m gested the base ball ground ns
the net suitable place. This was agreed
upon, and utter seeming the services of a
phy.-'ci in ti.ey drove to the scene of action.
Their seconds, whom wi! will name Nash
and Slade, manged the preliminaries with
all possible speed. The two prii;c!pi;ls
took their plat os at twenty pact s apart.
They w-re t lite a! tin: word "mur." "One,"
said Nash; ''Two," came from Shile,
"Three," "F ur." Cr.ck! Ctatk!! and
both antagonists fell to the ground. The
physician ru-hi.ii forwarl fnd, after exam
ination, rendered the following statement:
I li.nl a bullet lodged in the right shoul

dangerous wound. Jones was only stunned

as to stop the prognss of the bullet, there

are shoddy g odo."
When the duelists regained conscious
ness they shook bands, thankful that neith
er were latally wounded.
"Mr. Jones," said Mr. Smith, "your suit

''Mr. Smith, I b tight them at the great

will go to A. &. J. Levy's and buy one of

He kept his word and peace now pre

about the origin of Christina trees, conse

For three centuiies nfter the coining of
our L rd there win no uniformity among
Christians in the day observed as the an
niversary of his birth. S ime observed the
'JO h ol S 'pteniber, or thu feast of thu
I'aliern id. sjethi rs the 2!);h of M arch, the
tone of the Jewish Passover. Altera while

Amid the pagan nations ol antiquity,
tin re M" ins to have been a universal ten
dency to worship the sun as the giver of
light and he.it and the viable manil'eMa
tioasof tin: deity. Although worshipped
un ler d.f! 1 etit names 'y different nations,
he was .-till tho same divinity, The Bo
mans c died him S iunn; the Scandinavian
nations Odin or Woditi; the Pi.ienicians,
Baal or Bel; nnd the Persians, Mithras.
Their f usts in w isl ip of this sun-god
vctc all held at the wiutt r solstice, or De
cember J'' neooiding to our present calen
dar. Il is at this lime that the Mm turns
nbi-ut avl j luriioys southward, making the
beginning ol the renewed life aud powers
of mi'llre. The Kenans held at this time,
or from I) ceinbei o to Juuiiary 0, their
S ttiirn dia, or feast in honor of Saturn.
It was this celebration of the winter
solstice that led to Us selection for the date
of the Christmas b stivitic.s. The Christians
not only adopted the date but many of the
ceieinonies of the pagan feists, especially
of the Saturnalia. So heathenish did the
festivities of Cliris'inas become that the
church lleicely coinbutted thein, but after
wards, hoping that the spread of Christian
ity might be ndvinccd thereby, it endeavor
id to amalgamate, as it were, the old und
lho new religions by transferring the cere
monies of the heathen festivals to the
solemnities of the (hr.stmas lestivilies,
Now, among these heathen ideas that in
grafted upon Christmas was the ibo of
green houghs for decorations. All the
hcnthcnnatioiiMU-cilfordicoratir.il nt the
w inter-solstitial leasts these gr en boughs
to represent the nw iketiing life of nature,
which had not died but only slept. Tho
Umii'is u-til titem largely at their Sit
urnalia, and from them tho Christians llrst
adopted this decoration. Afterwards when
the "northern hive" poured out its' hordes
upon Southern Burope, tint northern bar
barians brought with them I heir use of
green bmnrh for decorations at 1I11) Yule
fc 1st; and when Christmas was ttaiu'crred
to England, or Britain, tho Diuidlcal rites
and superstitions, among which wai th
use of green bought for decoration at re
ligious festivities, were engrafted upon it,
and later, when Britain wasoTerrun by the
Saxons the various ceremonies of th anci
ent Germans and Scandinavian", among
which we have seen was this same Use of
green boughs, were re-engrafted upon the
Among all the pagan nations tho winter
solstitial feast marked a time of chanty.
Everywhere gifts were given. This, and
the commemoration of a life of love and
charity, made Christmas a time ot univer
sal gift-making. It was very natural
that in time these gifts should be put upon
the green boughs, which after awhile came
to be made into a standing tree the better
to serve this use. Thus some time in the
middle nges the Christmas tree delighted
the eyes of boys and girls. This first hap
pened in Germany. St. Nicholas flourished
lour centuries alter Christ. He wag 10
very good that he wag made the patron
saint of almost everybody, and, of course,
of children. Because be once supplied
some maids with marriage portions it be
came the custom for the girls to hang their
stockings outside their bed room doors for
him to fill; and St. Nicholas filled them
just as Santa Claus fills them now. But of
cnurso St. Nicho as would not slight good
boys, and so the boys would hang up their
stockings, too. That is how originated the
hanging up of stocking9. St. Nicholas'
Day was December G; but as superstition
wore away matter-of-fact parents encourag
ed the deferring of St. Nicholas1 visit till
Christmas, when presents would have to be
made anyhow. And when the Christmas
tree took the place of the stockings lt was
St. Nicholas, or as we English-speaking
people most often say, Santa Claus, who put
tho presents t'pon the tree.
Good Words for Southerners.
The Piiila lelphian-Titnes, in an article
on seekers for office, thus compliments the
people of the South : "The swarm of office
seekers from the South with which the coun
try has been threatened for many years,
vhcnevtr a change of party has been dis
cussed, does not appear to be forthcoming.
Inquiry at hotels in Washington develops
the fact that a smaller number of Southern
people will come to tho inauguration on the
4th of March than have witnessed any sim
ilar ceremony since the war. Thus far the
one city of Philadelphia haa furnished'
more applicants for hotel accommodations
than all the Southern States together. It
is not probable that any serious difficulty
will be experienced in finding a sufficient
number of men willing and anxious to fill
tho offices in the Souih. But it is plain
that tho rush for place will not be anything
liko that predicted or even so large at it
will be at the North. For eight years all
the Southern States have been securely in
the grip of ouu party, and yet there has
never been the struggle for official distinc
tion in that section which has characterized
tho North. The Southern people have
been to busy and have had too much at
stake to trust their advancement in life to
the chances of a public position. They
havo an interest in securing good govern
ment, but it will req'iiro many years of ex
perience before they can hope to compete
with the politicians of the North in finding
nherethe fat places aro ami in getting
'hem. It is safe to predict that more re-
miests ti ave oeen nrelerretl roin l' n saei-
pliia for the bluo-book, as well at for hotel
accommodations, than from the entire
I iir Corn Crop.
The for'.hcoming report of the Illinois
lepartnu nt of ngricul'uro will contain data
concerning tho corn crop of tho state for
ItsSI. The season was favorable for ma
turing the crop, which is sound and of su
perior quality. The crop has been gathered
and stored in good condition. The low
price of the crop has induced farmers to
Id it so far as their means will permit.
The area of the late crop is 0,898,819 acres,
which is less than that of any preceding
year since ISTil. Tho average yield for the
state is 0") bushels per acre, which exceeds
the yield per aero of any year since 1872,
xceping the crops of 187.'i and 1870. The
aggregate com crop of tho state for 1884 it
07,5."((l,fi(i I bushels and exceeds the corn
rops of the three preceding years by 20,-
0110,001) to ilO.OOO.QOO bushels.
The average price per bushel ot corn In
llrst hands is reported to bo 20 cents per
bushel. The price for corn has not ruled
s i low in this state since 18(10 except in
18(11, 1H03, 1872, 1877 and 1878.
