GERMAN SCHOOL I'ICNIC.
IiitrRe 1'rcMvil atnd Interesting Occi
Tho German school picnic in Flora
Garden, yesterday and last ovenins, was
certainly as successful as its projectors
could havo wished.
About half past nine tlio school children,
carrying banners, wreaths and boquets,
were marched to tho grounds In charge of
Prof. Winching, Dr. Wadgymar and
Mr. William Alba. A brighter looking lot
of youngsters never marched through tho
streets of Cairo. Reaching the garden they
abandoned themselves to such sports and
rccrcatiutis as had been provided, or as the
occasion and surroundings suggested, and,
during the live-long day tho neighborhood
was made vocal by tho sounds of mirth and
Tho attendance of parents was large.
Indeed u largei or happier crowd of men,
women and children, never usscmbled in
Flora Garden. Carriages und spring wag
ons run to and i'ro between tho city and tho
picnic grounds during tho afternoon and
evening, overy trip out contributing ten or
dozen a youngsters and "old folks" to tho
throng already gathered.
Isenbcrg's string band furnished music
not ill-naturedly and sparingly; but
cheerfully, abundantly, and of tho best
kind. Tho German glcffclub wcro present,
and tang a number of popular Gorman
tongs in a style that would bo difficult to

On all sidos thcro was a disposition to
pleaso tho children, and nothing that could
contribute to that end was left undone,
Tho best of feeling prevailed. Every
body was very sociable, very genial, affa
ble, good natured and unselfish, rendering
themselves happy by contributing to tho
happiness of others.
At night tho crowd was cntortained by
scvoral beautiful tableaux, shown In tho
gloro of red light; by music, fire-works,

Tho cliarlor of tho Cairo and St. Louis
railroad company .contains n provision
authorizing counties to subscribe to tho
capital stock of tho company, nnd this
provision, it is hold, is not a of-
fectcd by tho New Constitution,
sinco tho authority .conferred is o
tho noturo of vested rights. This being
true, Pulaski county may mako a subscrip
tion to tlio rond und throw nn infiuencn in
favor of the now route that may bo decisive.
Tho warfnro wagod against tho Cairo
and Vinconnes road, by a portion of tho
country people of Alexander county, has
made friond fo' tho now routo among tho
citizens of Cairo, nnd if that warfare is con
tinned the number of thoe friends is quite
certain to increase.
Tho Cairo and Vincennes railroad is a
"pt" project of the people of Cairo, as tho
Cairo und St. Louis road is with tho resl-
lnt of tho river precincts hence to
Clear Creek. To the former, the citizens
of Cairo look as an agent that will open
up to them tho trade of Johnson and Sa
line counties, and to tho public tho short
est aad best through routo that can be
provided between tho Northeast and
Southwest. Upon the latter tho residents
of tho country portions of tho county de
pend for tho developments of their re
sources, and for that increased wealth
and prosperity that has followed
tho construction of railroads every wboro.
It is manifest, therefore, that in reference
to both theso projects the citizens of Cairo
and the country peoplo should work in
harmony. They cannot afford to loso ono
another's help and countenance. A good
understanding and unity of effort among
hum will best servo the aims nnd wishes
of both. Certain we aro that while tho
country people, or any considerable por
tion of them, maintain a hostile attitutcd
toward tho Cairo and Vinconnes railroad,
(which as we havo said, is u favorite proj
ect with Cairo) they can scarcely expect
that tho citizens of Cairo will do battle for
tho adoption of thn river routo of tlio Cairo
and St. Louis road so devoutly wished
for by our country friends.
Wo need both roads. A cordial co-op-cratlon
of town and country peoplo will
hasten their completion. Contention and
discord will ovitably delay such n con
summation, should they bring upon us no
greater disastor. Shoulder lo shoulder,
then, let us nil work for tho succest of
both roads, and uot rolnx our labors until
success is assured.
