Eft." The city has boon somewhat oxcitcd du
ring the past woek by tho publication of
a choico bit of scandal nnd tho probability
thnt n tragedy of first-class proportions
would grow out of It. Here is tlie story ns
'twas told to us.
About a year ago n citir.cn of Cairo, un
ablo to any longer obtain onployment nt
the business in which be bad gained an
enviable roptitntlon, went hence in search
of fortune in a moro appreciative com
munity. Ho left behind him a wifo on
whoso constancy ho was willing to stako
all bU woldly gains, and during his ub
senco, longor continued than at first he
thought it would be, ho steadfastly kept in
view the wants of his family and ench
week sout to them all his surplus wagos
Ilut In this case the namo of tho wife was,
or should hnvo been, Frailty. She grossly
abused the confidence of her loving
spouse. For a month or two she was as
11 nn as the rock of Uilrnltar, and all ns
saults upon her vlrtuo wcro repelled and
properly resented. Itut at Inst the temp
ter came in irrcsistablo guise a ftal
wart man, not pruclsoly un Addonls, but
nil that thu heart of 11 fastidious admirer
of male bcautv could dosire. His hands
had not been worn by hard labor; and
having been long uncustomed to prnctico
behind the counter of n store tho tcioncc
of politeness, lie soon ingratiated iMnmuir
into tlto weak lady's good opinion. He nd
fanccd with u not too hasty step. H
was tlrst kind, then affectionate, llo won
his victim s confidence, then practiced on
her weaknoisos. Forgetting his duty to
his own wife and child, (for he hns both),
bo deliberately polluted thu hearthitono of
a friend, at whoso tablo he had often brok-
en bread, partaking of dishes which his
entertainer's own hands hnd prepared
with n master's skill. Ho would not bo
repulsed. The song of "Not for Joe no,
no, no, " only incited him to a fresh assault
upon the citadol beforo which
ho had established bis posi
tion. He triumphed; nnd oh, that
that tho dreadful truth should bo told In

No tongue bad told the secret, but what
tlie car heard not the eyo saw.
The grocer for tho gay deceiver U a
grocer need wo say tho grocer became
nervous ? Those who knew him without
knowing bis secret obervod that ho began
to look upon the wlno when it was red,
to fill himself daily with bad whisky. Ho
knew tho dreadful .ocret could not long bo
concealed from tho curious public and the
trusting husband. Ho had nightly dreams
of tho cold grave, and saw visions of infu
riated husbands rushing with fierce bowio
knives nnd huge pistols upon the betray

pieces and blowing them into tho finest
kind of smithereens

THE t'OI.OIICII TllOOPtf,
For sotno unaccountable reason tho col
ored voters do not take kindly to tho prop,
osltion that Lansden shall bo re-elected.
What can thov have auainst him V Ho has
been n good ofllcer: the city has pros
pered undor his administration ; there can
bo no good reason suggested for not desir
ing His ro-olecllon, and wo bono und ex
pect tho colored voters will swing Into lino
una give mm u Hearty stiport
How shall the ticket of tho citizens bo
put before tho public? Is the question of
the day. A 0 know no better way than tn
call a public meeting a mnss meeting

friends of tho present municipal policy
have nothing lo fear, and they should
Invito ull the people of tho cit v white nnd
black to como together nnd consider tho
lucstlon : "What is tho best thing to do
for tho citv welfare ?''
Ono of thu first duties of the incoming
city administration will bo to provide for
tho payment of overdue bonds. If, as will
Inevitably bo tho case under the recent
construction of the charter, the city can
not pay any due bond unless a fund hns
been accumulated for thut purposo from
tho proceeds of taxes levied for tho espe
cial purposo of crcnting tho bond paying
sinking fund authorized by tlie charter,
thero will nover ngain bo it bond paid if
tho nsscsrincnt of taxes is hereafter mado
ns heretofore. This matter must thercforo
bo looked after, and, in some way there
enn bo found 11 wny the bonds of the city
now overduo must be pr.id.
WINSTON AND IlltOH.
And now comos Colonel Winston and
locks horns with Judge Dross on the po
lice magistrate question. Thore is there
fore fun ahead und excitement and
wrangling and, (to uso a forcible gener
ality) a high old time. AVinston is confi
dent anil Ilnm i. vurr ditto. AVinston
knows that Uross Is very weak beforo tho
public, although an unexceptionable gen
tlemnn personally, and Drots
knows AVinston is not strong,
.,..,, u ft clever man, you
know, personally, and nil that. Win
ston will rccelvo tlio support of all those
who do not liko Bross and Bross tho sup
port of all lhoe. who do not liko Winston
and It is thought that this division will
divide tho voters nearly in the middle.
Tlie county olHcers und all guardians and
nil administrators and all lawyers ought to
bo opposed to Bross, ami there is no reason
why they should bo for his opponent.
Thorefore, tho logical conclusion is, tho
persons referrod to will probably bo for
ono of the candidates or they won't. This
may be stating tho caso rather vividly,
but we think n littlo reflection
on the part of our readers will bear us
out In this assertion an assertion which
was not mado without considerable reflec
tion. Accepting this, then, as thu truth
It must follow that cither AVinston or
Bross will bo elected, provided no other
person is voted for ; because, as will bo
observed, if Bross does not rcceivu fewer
votes than AVinston, AVinstuii will inovit
ably receive u smaller votuthun Bross, un
less thero should be n tie, in which evont
if the gamo is whist Winston will win, and
if tho game is "pitch" tho Judgo will
knock tho hind sights off tho Colonel.
Tho citizons who have paid U10 special
assessments made for street tilling, and
who nro now required to pay tho interest
on tho Fox, Hownrd & Co. bonds, are
very naturally dbsntlslled with the ar
rangomont nnd look to the city for relief,
which should bo speedily afforded. The
cost of tho work was nbout $'.'0,000. This
amount was ns-cssed against the lots in
iront ol which filling was put into tho
streets. Boipondlng to tho c ill of tho tax
colloclor half tho lot owners say three
Hundred paid into tho city
treasury niioiii nail the gros
amount, fl 10,000. The other thrco hun
ilroJ refused to pay.nnd tho courts sustain-
od them In tho refusal, AVhorcupon Fox,
Howard A- Co., went into the courts and
obtained n judgmont against tho city for
the balanco duo them, and the city to sat
isfy this judgmont Issued about $110,000,
fi per cent, bonds. Tho annual interest on
this amount is $8,800, of which nmotint
tho lot ownors who puld for nil tho IIIIIiik
done boforc their lots, are required to pay
$1,400, und, when the bonds become due,
will bo compollod to pay 55,000 of tho
principal. So this results: Because thrco
hundred lot ownors did not go to law with
the clly thoy nre now required to pay half
the interest duo on what threo hundrod
othorlot owners owo,and whon it bocomes
duo half tho amount of what tho delin
