ConscntAi, Infelicity. In ft thriving
young city, not a hundred miles from
Cairo, Hvo an Ill-matched pair, to whoio
conduct nro duo quito a number of
"sensations." A few days ago tho wlf,
who is about LJ years old, put on hor night
gown,unfmtoncd hur buir, and ran through
tho city, towards tho river, avowing,
with ovcry brcni'u, a determination to
drown horiolf, and beseeching tho sur
prised lookers-on, not to Intcrforo with
hor. Her husband, who is a man of about
C5, had, alio said, communicated to her a
horrid disenso that was rendering her
young life a living death, and of all mis
erable woman making her the molt mis
erable. Running from one street corner
to another, she cried that no person should
deter hor from drownlnc herself, which
dhagrocablo little job she proposed to ac
complish tho very minute she could reach
tho river.
It falling to occur to overybudy that tho
much abuied lady might have drowned
herself In her owri horse-pond or well, at
home, without Incurring tho risk or Inter-,
forence, there were thoo who tnado chase
after and overtook her on the very vergo
of the rlvor. Tho rcauH wn, a rMXtrtonn
merit or the drowning.
A friend of tho family meeting tho old
mini shortly afterwards, addressed iilm as
follows: " Your wlfu has been on another
one of hur tantrums. Now I'll tell vou
what you tan do. l'lay the drowning
dodge yourself. I believe it will euro
her."
An hour later tho friend vUltiil t 1(1
wife, and found her "raviag, distracted,

the horse-pond und his lrit rtoating upon
tho water. The most diligent snrcli
sinco then has failed to ilisclimo Ills where'
bouts, and the conclmion U inevitable:
Ho drowned hiniclf !''
" Well, now," said thu youn wilo.culm-
ly, " that's too bad. And to think of the
He I told on him. 1 can't think what
made me do it. Poor mun. He was real
ly good to me. Everything I aid about
being miserable nnd tho cause of mv mls-
ry wus untrue. Why Mr. , I'm as
pure as a lily. I don'l know what I shall
wear to the funeral. Poor man. Rut bo
uugu. uui 10 iiavo married sucn a young
creature as I am j und although I shall

Mr. how could I think of doinc
such a thine altbouch I couldn't lm ner.
uaded to marry any man in tho world, I
muit tell you again that whut I said about
the cause or mv miserv was untmr.. I
m, as I said, as pure as a lily."
ot a tear was shed, and the serious re-
grot that was expressed was becauso of
her own scandalous uttorances. She did
not regret these because of their effect
upon the character of her husband, but
occause, manifestly, they would stand as
an ugly obstaclo between her and a second
husband.
The friend left. While turning a cor
ner about a hundred vards d itant. he
eard the pleadings of the "bereaved
wife" unmlitnkably punctuated by the
crack of a horse-whip. Tho drowned hus
band was taking matters in bis own hands,
and settling a More that bad driven him
well nigh to distraction.
rom that time forward the couple
lived together quietly, and as far as the
neignoors could Judge, contentedly.
Yr.A anu Nav. A cusu beforu squire
Rross, yesterday morninir. cave rlso to
hat Illifkins would term " confoundedly
tall swearing." An old citiren of Cairo
was brought up, charged with having sold
unlicensed liquor in quantities less than
one gallon. A negro was introduced who
swore most unequivocally that he had
bought liquor from tbo accused, by the
glass, and paid him for it. The accused
aworo with equal emphasis that tho negro
had done no such thing. As tho caso
could only turn on the preponderance of
evidenco, and there being a plentiful lack
of "preponderance," the city attorney
couiu uo nothing less than take a nonsuit.
Ilefore leaving tho house the negro recol
lected that another darkey had bought
liquor at the sumo establishment. Tho
city attorney therefore, as in duty bound,
renewed tho proceedings, lloth nogroes
now sworo that they had bought liquor of
defendant by tho drink and bnid him
for it, adding that defendant gave them u
crackor a piece, at tho time, and protested
that he took their monoy, not In puyment
for the whisky, but for tho crackers. Ac
cused was again brought to tho stand,
and agnin swore, with &n earnestness not
to be miataken, that tho negroes lied
that neither of tbem had obtained h drop
of liquor at his house at tho time stated or
at any other time. Hero was a flat contra
diction ; but there wore two against one,
and '.lie squire had no discretion. Tho
"preponderance" was with tho negroes,
and the old citizen was mulcted in thu sum
of $10 and tho Uxturcs,
As a sample of contradictory "swearing"
the evidenco in this case is rarely surpass
ed, even in tho courts of Paducah.
Thu Festival. Tho ladle of tho
Episcopal Church succeeded in making
tho strawberry festival given by tbem ItiRt
night the grandest affair of the .season.
Tho hall In Thornton's now building had
been ittod up in the most tasteful mau
ner, and when we saw it In tho afternoon
It promised to bo perfect in all its appoint
menu. It was our intention to glvo a full
and detailed description of tho grand
affair, but our roporter unluckily could
not procure admission and tbo necessary
information, and wo aro thoreforo com
pelled to be satisfied with this rather gen
eral expression of approbation.

Wo again direct tho attention of tho
publlo to tho fact tnat n Mrs. Jennlo Fer
ris li giving entertainments in this city
for a money consideration. Theso enter
tainments nro neither religious, scientific
nor charitable, and aro not, therefore, such
as tho ordinances of tbo city permit with
out license. Tho; fart tlaV Mrs. F.,docs
not demand the price of'admlsslon at the
door docs not rollovo her of responsibility.
Every person who nttendi hfer seances Is
expected to pay for his cntertainmont,and
the enclosing of the amount in an envel-
opo or tho. handing of It to a tblroV party
to deliver to Mrs. Y., shields her from no
responsibility in tho premises. It mat
ters not how tho money is paid, nor when.
If gain la tho object of her exhibition
she should bo compelled to take out n li
cense, and of that fact there can be no
question.
Co m m k nci a L A v Jen v K.Th o ta x-pa yers
of Cairo warmly commend that economy
and prudont management on tho part of
our City Council that has brought tho
city's "promises to pay" bp to a par value
as compared with currency. They hope
and expect, nevertheless, that the '-system
of retrenchment" being pursued will not
bo found incompatible with the ropair and
improvement of our streets and
sidewalk. Commercial avenue, be
tween Twentieth and Thirty-fourth
streets, ought to bo filled, if not
to grade, St least to a point above the pe
riodical necumulutions of tho sipo and
rainwater that "afllict" that portion of
Cairo.
No street in tho city is more gonerally
used tliuii Commercial avenuo. It is trav
eled by all the teams coming In from
Jlound City and the country beyond, and
is tho only convenient means of communi
cation with the extensive marufacturing
establishments now in operation and in
course of construction above Twenty
eighth street. When tho rivers are "bank
full " or during heavy and continued
rains it is scarcely passable. Loaded teams
aro compelled to search out some other
route. We need scarcoly urge that a
thoroughfare of such great and growing
Importance to tbe business of
the city should not remain in this
condition any longer. Every citizen it
Cairo wjlb benefited to some extent by
the Improvement "proposed, and a largo
number of those who expect to contribute
largely to tbe general prosperity of our
city, will bo greatly benofltod. The cost
of tbe fill, compared with the object to bo
attained, will bo trining j but, whether
great or small, thoso interested will bear
the burden imposed, cheerfully. Lot the
work be undertaken, then, and put
through during tho present season.

.MRS. FERRIS' SEAXCES.
To the Editor of the Bulletin.
Tho delusions practiced by Mrs. Fcrri,
ii reputed modlum, the denunciations of
them as mere trickery nnd tho dofenso of
thorn as gcnulno "spirit manifestations,"
has brought tho fact rather prominently
beforo tho publio that the really enthusias
tic spiritualists, whllo indignantly retuslng
to permit any Investigation Into tho phe
nomena upon which they baso thoir faith,
nro apparently earnest, nhd certainly In
dustrious, In their denunciation of bellov
ers of other creed", for their blindness and
llllberality.
Tho mcro suggestion that light bo
thrown Into the darkness In which, for a
week or more, Mr. Ferris and hor confed
erates have rattled bells, thumped tambo
rines and twanged guitars has been met
by almost Indignant denial. Wo have
been informed, indeed, that if any Inquir
ing citlzon should Introduco n light on
such an occasion, Mrs. F.'s masculine abet
tor, would physically chastise that Individ
ual most unmercifully. The masculine
abettor might or might not prove equal
totho emergency In such a cac, but that Is
not tho question.
The dcslro of Mrs. F. to prevent, by
threats or otherwise, tho introduction of
light Into iior scancos, is proof which
many will nccept as conclusive, that an
unexpected light would lead to rclnous ex
posure. If sho employs no confederates,
if hor manifestations are due to spirit
agency, a light could mako no damaging
exposures. On the contrary, it would ro-
Imove suspicions of fraud, collusion and
humbuggcry. jt would satisfy her audi
ences that the clatter of tho bells, etc., on
tho tablo, wos io her own work, and that
tho floating of tho guitar was not duo to
tho assistance of a "flesh und blood" con
federate. Why, then, should spiritualists,
whoso object should bo to convince tho
world of tbo truth of their creed nnd tho
genuineness of tho manifestations upon
which it Is founded, object to xho applica
tion of tho test proposed. If the v .now
that Mrs. F. is aided by an invisiblo in
telligence, why do they fear the light ? As
wo havo said, light can expose nothing
If Spiritualism Is a truth. If it bo a fraud
or species of humbuggory, in Heaven's
name, let us know It. At all ovont, let
no spiritualist who objects to tho test pro
posed, who indignantly refuses to assist in
or permit investigation, and who de
nounces everybody as a "scoffer" who can
not accept tho rattling of bolls, etc., at
tho rate of from $50 to $100 per night
let no such spiritualist, we say, open his
mouth again in donunclntlon of whot he
is pleased to term "Christian Intolerance."
