dipt. Halliday returned from Now
York yesterday oventng. Wo have not
had tho pleasure of seeing nnd convers
ing with him since his roturn, but gontlo
men who has talked with him say he
represents Oon. Hurnsido as still hopeful.
This moans much or little, and how littlo
or how much tho Rood pooplo who aro so
anxious for tho construction of this road
will soon learn. Cairo has boon fed on
hopes fr a long time, nnd now wishes
a littlo reality to dUslpato upon.
Mr. Timothy Coylc, formerly of Cai
ro, has fitted up tho Central House nt
Yilla ltidgo und Is now proparod to 11c-
commodnto tho public with first-class cn
tertnimnenst. This fact is called to tho at
tention of tho Cairo people, who will al
ways rccoivo from Mr. Coylo n honrty
wclcomoand be furnished with tho best of
everything his house nlFords. Tho Cen
tral House is next door to the Hudson
House, west of tho station.
'William Alba's barber si op is grow
ing in public favor every day. It is nenl
ly fitted up, and can boast of tho most
skillful workmen in tho city. Tho pro
prietor has had many years' oxperienco in
his business nnd is recognized as ono of tho
most expert shavers in Southern Illinois,
whilo young Alba is n master in his pro
fession. Citizens nnd strangers who wish
a painless shave, n luxurious shampooing,
or their hair cut in tho latest stylo should
patronizo Alba. Ills shop Is on Commer

They poison dogs in Peoria tho polico
do. In Cairo wo don't touch tho dogs ut
all. They havo become sacred property
and as numorous as flcas.in a hog pon or on
too sidewalks whero hogs most do jrongre
gAtc. If tho marshal shoots a d)g, tho
council shouts: "Stop; you'll kill somo
body." If ho throws out poisoned meat
to the curs tho council shouts: "Stop;
you'll poison a chicken, or goose, or liog."
And so the marshal is compelled to hang
up his gun and lay aside his strychnine.
The council then, as 11 matter of course,
docs nothing. Tho dog problem is so
large. It is a mountainous difficulty in
the path of municipal legislation. It
would block tho wheels of congress.
The bridgo over tho Cache on tho
road from Cairo to Mound City has be
come imtmsub1c it havlnt: " scttlnd "
in tho middle and swaged more than a
foot to ono side. Tho causo of this mis
fortuno has not bocn ascertained definite
ly, but may be ntlributed to tho rcmov
nl of certain bolts which somo person has
taken out of the bridge. "What motivo
impelled any person to thus ruin n bridgo
so necessary to tho public is wrapped in a
mystery. Judges llross and Pidgcon and
Col. Taylor vilitca uo b.iJ6. yMio.Uy
nnd had tho approaches to it boarded up.
Judge Pigeon has agreed to superviso the '
J repairs necessary to mako the bridgo
avnilable, and will probably hnvejlt ready
for public tut in a couplo of wouks.
Tho freight car blockade on tho lovco
is creating great indignation in levee
business circles. All tho merchants are
cursing. They say Johnson, who is al
ways polite and always clever, repeatedly
insures them that ho will telegraph and
ascertain if openings can bo left in tho lung
line at intervals' of say a equnrc or two j
but tho switch man "cusses ' them und
Johnson too behind his back. "What,
therefore is to bedonoV How would an in
