Cairo, on Tuesday, fcc-piomocr i,, .
Our renders arc, no doubl, famlllrtr with
tholnmcntablo tragedy In which Mr. Lake
lost his life. Tlio wmow, einco mo uciun
oflior husband, and In tho face of many
obstacles that would have driven n woman
of ordinary courage and determination to
despair, has conducted tho business of the
large establishment loft to her charge, with
ability and success. Whorovor sho has
nppcarcd sho has received the liberal tup
port of the public, and, wo bellevo, Cairo
will not bo behind any other placo in
whole-hearted kindness to tbo energetic
lady who asks our patronage Most of tho
cities and countios sho has visited have
pormitted her to exhibit without llccnio,
and wo hope, our city may roduco tho
heavy llconse within her reach. It Is
much too high for nny circus to pay, and
ought not lo bo enforced in this instance.
Mrs. Lako offers to tho public an exhibi
tion of tbo most complqto kind. Her por
formors aro all masters in their business,
and tho outfit of hor circus lino bo
yond description. Wo havo had no per
formances of this kind in Culio for a long
timo, nnd wo havo no doubt Mrs. Lako
will rccelvo a wolcomo in tho shape of ono
of tho largest crowds over beforo nssom
bled under n circus pavillion in tho capital
Cioars. A delicious cigar is n luxury,
and to those who desire to indulgo in tho
luxury of tho most delicious cigars in tho
city, wo coramond Saup's cigar and to
bacco store. Thoy beat tho world; and
aro a suro euro lor all tno in tnai ucsn is
heir to. If you havo tho chills, smoko
Saup'i cigars j if you haven't smoko Saup's
cigars. If you aro in a bad humor, puff
Saup's cigars,, and all your bad temper
will Instantly bo dissipated in tho fragrant
smoko. If you aro unfortunate, smoke
Saup's cigars, and you will become
lucky. If you aro fortunate smoke Saup's
cigars and you will never bo unlucky.
His cigars aro talismanic. They are
drink, food and mcdiclno; better than
Weiss beer, Incomparably superior to oys
tors and a more successful cure-all than
Mr. Editor of Bulletin : Tho an
nouncement in your columns, mado tome
days ago, that Jacob Bradley was absent
from the city attonding a Baptist associa
tion has created somo surpriso among
thoso knowing tho facts. Mr. Bradloy has
no right to attend a Baptist association as
a mlnistor.slncby referenco to the church
rocords of this city, it will bo found that
he was dismissed from tho ministry for
creating faction in tho church to which he
bolonged, for creating discord botween man
and wife, and for defrauding tho church.
Tbcso charges wore sustained by tho voto
of an ecclesiastical council held in this
city, in May, 18C9, of which Kor. Simon
Marshall was moderator, and John Van
voxtor clerk. X.

HER USEFUL LIFE AND CALM DEATH THE
STORY OF A DOO'B WALK THROUGH LIFE
AND JUMP INTO THE ORAVE.
Vestorday a frlond of ours, clothed
In tho habllmcnts of mourning, announced
to us, in torms as sad ns tho wnlllng
of Autumn winds, tho death of Mrs.
Bridget Blake, n femnlo dog whoso circle
of acquaintances embraced nil tho patrons
and visitors of tlio St. Charles hotel ; but,
wo regret losay, tlmt,'our friend, although
ho is au fait In dog literature, saw proper
to dismiss tho deceased to tho land of dead
dogs with but n brief though tearful allu
sion to tho sad events of hor last illness
and tho incidents of hor uioful life
Tho decoased was born In this city on
tho third day of the ruorry, morry month
of May, 1869, and was, consequently, at
tho time of hor taking off, aged 12 years,
4 months and 11 days. All naturo
smllod on tho day of hor birth. Tho
flowers noddod their beads joyfully In tho
golden sunshine and scattered about them
tho inconso of delightful porfumcs.
Tho owner of hor mothor, for in that day
as in this the slavery of dogs was tolorat
cd, partook of the good humor of tho day
and only drowned two of hor brothers and
three of hor sistors. To Bridget ho took
ndccldod liking, nnd fed her on the best
milk of his host cow. Whon "Brldg," as
she was called for short, was throo yoars old
sho gave ovldonco of tho possession of a
brighter mind and n moro patriotic spirit
than Is usual in even malo dogs. She be
gan to mako sad havoc among the rats of
thu St. Charlos, and to wng hor tall whon
n Union soldier camo into hor presenco,
for in those days tho war of tho rebel
lion was boing waged. She was a. Union
slut from tho tip of hor tall to the point
of hor nose, and whcQoveriho saw a reb
el got up and howled. Grant was In com
mand horo during tho hey-day of hor life,
and it was a nolicoablo fact, that, as if
aware ho was the coming great man and
the savior of his country, Bridget always
stood awed In his prcsonec, and, when ho
would fall down drunk, would watch ovor
him with a mother's care. Sbo was as af
fectionate as sho was patriotic, and loved
or friends and pups with an intensity sel
om behold; and,ovcn In hor last moments,
seemed to recur In memory to tho old ac
quaintances who had so often patted her
bend. It was boliovcd, by thoso who
tood near her, that, moro than onco be
foro sho shuffled off tho dog-coll, sbo
barked tho name of Jowott Wilcox, who
had furnished her broad and meat for many
long year. Sho also had a kind bark of
farewoll for Sol Silver, who did all he
ould to smooth her pathway to tho palo
roulms of shade whoro oach dog liko each
mortal mutt go and take a chamber In tho
lont halls of death. Sho was indeed a
modol, and was the reverse of Launco's
og, Crab, in the "Two Gentlemen of Ve
rona," being the swoctest natured dog that
lived. Sho had a tear for luffcrinc, and a
paw that sho always licked when It re
fused to disnenso alms. During many
cars she was a familiar prutenco in tho
St. Charles hotel, whero sho died full of
honors. Wo can't restrain tbo impulso
Farewell, Ilridgot, beat of bitches,
Notondovred with this world's riche,
You wore faithful, true and leal-
True as Is Damascus stoel ;
True as ncodlo to tho polo ;
Truo as faith in martyr's soul j
True as courage In great battle
Where tho leaden death doth rattle i
Truo as first love truo as truth j
Faithful as Naomi's Ruth.
Poor old llrldxet; dear eld friend ;
You have reachod at last the end
You have sten the last of earth;
8ecn its sorrow and Its mirth i
Seen the good side and the bad ;
Heen tho oopers and the glad ;
Been the bad arise and fall ;
Fuen the cradle and the pall
You havo uttered your last bsrW,
And you lie now cold aid eturW.
Dear old Bridget, faro-theo-well ;
1 vtould toll the funeral bell
Wear the mourner's badgo for days
Weep, if all worth could havo praise
Toll the bell weep mourn for thee,
But tho world says this shan't be,
Mourn, World says, the human dog ;
Slourn, World Bays, the human hog,
Shed no tears o'er brutish worth i
Tills the Justice is of earth.
Poor old Dridget, you are through
Future, there is nono for you.
Ha tho book says; anl Relief
Finds this written on each leal.
Finis, Bridget brave old heart 1
Finis, Bridget thy cold heatt
In it hai more good, I trow,
Than many human hearts! know.
Their bad lives and your good dies I
This the Justice of tht skies I
Holt so. And now farewell.
'Hove you clangs no funeral bell ;
'Ilovo you swells no dailed mound ;
Babied mourners weep not 'round i
Euiogy for jou's not said ;
Jingling verse, are not read i
