We must havo a supply of water for

cil is sponding thousands of dollar each
month to provido against tho danger of
broken heads and legs, and why docs it
persistently neglect refuse, let u say-
to provido against tho dangers of the de
struction of the property of tho ci tir.cn s?
Take from the paoplo of Cairo their prop
erty and their necks and legs will' bo of
very littlo value to them. The Paper, The
Bulletin, and soven of every ten citlrcni,
aro crying loudly for cisterns a supply
of water for the engines, pending the com
ing a conflagration. The Sun has not
opened lis non-committal mouth on this
question. Is it afraid to speak ? Whose
dime's worth of patronage would boldness
on thii question drivo away?
Th ore seoms to be some uneasiness
concerning scrip and a fear prevailing
that it may depreciate to the old prioc.
There is not, wo bcllove, r.ny danger of
such a result. It is true the cost of re
pairing tho sidewalks, reparation which
has been almost a rebuilding, is a great
burden and keeps tho volume of scrip
great, but this expenditure will not bo
continuous ; and, in our opinion, the coun
cil should, as soon as the walk are pro
nounced passably good, knock off all u-
psrfluous hands, keeping employed a force
no larger than is sufficient to replace
broken planks, etc. If this is done this
drain upon the treasury cut off tho vol
umo of scrip will very speedily be absorbed.
In the meantime, all our merchants should
receive city scrip at par, giving goods for
it. They can well afford to do to. It
draws ten per cent, interost, and every
citizen who can lay asido in scrip the
amonnt of hi taxes will be drawing this
rato of interest on it.
Reading the revised ordinances twice
occupied the timo of tho city council in
joint session about four months, and ne
cessitated, according to our recollection,
about ten thousand meetings more or
less. On Friday afternoon tho select
council mot nt 2 o'clock, adjourned for
supper, met again at soven and before ad
journment had completed the first read
ing of tho same ordinances. Yesterday
aftornoon and evening tho council com
pleted tho second reading. This if tho
way to do business, and tho example of the
select gentlemen is commended by us to
the members of the board of aldermon. A
littlo dash, patienco nnd endurance, good
nldermanic boys, nnd your work Is dono.
But wo can scarcely oxpect all these vir
tues to bo developed in our aldermen.
Thoy aro such slow-going legislators that
tho suggestion of haste makes them turn
pale as grim death ; and so, in all proba
bility, a few of the more enterprising
members of the board four of thotwolvo
are enterprising will meet, curse .the
other members who wont attend when
they should, and adjourn. In this way
one, two, three, four or five months will
be wasted boforo tho ordinances which
were read in two days by the select coun
cil will be read by the board. Wo are
willing to bet a straw hat with each alder
man that it will take his board at least a
month from tho call of tho first meeting
to rend tho ordinances twice, and wo be
lieve tho reading will not be finished un
til next spring.

.While Mr. Chas. Hardy, in preparation
for the reception of his dancing ola yes
terday afternoon, was having his hair cut in
the mnnner of the very latest fashion, by a
barber who knows all about such things, n
thief unlocked the door of his sleeping
room" in Winter's block and rilled his
irunk of a cold watch and chain, breast
pin, sleeve buttons, shirt studs, and half n
dozen napkin rings, which he had pur
chased In anticipation of mnrringo and
housekeeping, all of tho value of about a
hundred dollars. As soon as ho discover
ed Wis loss, he gave the alarm to the po
lice, and Chief .Myers soon succeeded in
spotting the guilty man ttnd recovering
the property. And Charlie is happy.

with a razor and gavo Mr. Oliver a ulash
that cut hi face from the tip of his noso
to tho chin, furnishing him with a four
cornered mouth. Sho also oponcd his
