Cairo business men seem to under-es-tlraato
the importance of attending our
tobacco sales. It doesn't follow that they
should buy of tho offerings because pres
ent ; but they could do the next best thing
to that. They could assure plantors and
transient buyers that they feel an intorest
in the success of the market. They could
cxtond their acquaintance amonc the resi
dents of the surrounding country, and
tnus, no doubt secure new customers to
Cairo business houses. Let every busi

Judge Uross, we aro informod, ob
jects to the discussiou by Tnr. Bullktj.v
of the action of tho County Court In refer
ence to thu Cairo and Vincenne railroad
question, and hns seon proper to regard
our strictures as personally offensive. In
a convocation with gentlemen thu other
evening, ho was pleased to say that our
course was not dictated by an interest in
tho public weal but by selfishness that wo
received pay for nil we wrote and said In
disparagement of tho action of tho court.
If the Judge has nven the remotest evi
dence that his assertion has in it n grain of
truth we ask him to rnako It public. "Why
should we bo paid for saying what nearly
every man, woman and child in this commu
nity is aaylng. Neither editors nor tho
members of courts aro often paid for tho
advocacy of popular measures; but vory
often members of courts as well as editors
are paid for advocating unpopular meas
ures and onforcing them against tho
wishes or the people and in destruction of
their prosperity. "Wo aro with tho pooplo
on this question, and tho reflection upon
our honesty and good faith in tho matter
comes with a bad graco from the Judgo,
who, without any apparent good reason is
defying the wishes of tho pooplo he was
elected to represent and not govern.

where be dared Liza Ann 'to hit him

afterwards he gave a quick spasmodic jerk

Liza Ann hit him. He was In a vory un
