One who sinned like Magdalen like her
should bo forgiven.
Sovcrul yoars ago Mrs. Arnold icpcratod
from her husband, and obtained a divorce,
J-or a tln.o lior "walk ana conversation
was unexceptionable j but finally the
whispers of scandnl began to blacken her I
good name, and at Inst tho otidences of her
shame beenmo too plain for longer con
calmont. Consulting not only hor own
udgmcnt but tho ndvico of friends, she
concluded to loave the city and remain ab
sent until after the birth of tho child. Sho
accordingly visited St. Louis, provided
with n splendid wardrobe and plenty of
moncv, furnished doubtless by tho man
who was hor partner in sin, over whoso
shortcoming let tho mantel of sllcnco also
fall, for he, liko other mon, is rot beyond
the power of tomptation or possessed of
that flinty virtue, rend of and preached
about but never seen, which is cold while
it scatters at the touch of passion sparks
of fire on every sldo.
Sho was prodigal of her moans, and
spent her money with a most lavish hand
Sho engaged rooms at ono of the best
hotels, and had In waiting upon nor two
servants. She bought gewgaws and lux
urics and treated hcrsolf llko'n spoiled
chitd. Then came pinching AVant nnd
drove from her her servants; drove hor to
a lei expensive hotel ; then to a boarding
house of the second class ; nnd then to
seek refugo under tho questionable pro
tection of two women. Whilo
with thorn her child was born
nnd tho sickness which robbed her of life
laid upon her a firm hand. She lingered
ponuilcss for a month, waited upon by the
women who expected lo obtain pay for
their care uftor licr death in tho riches of
the contents of her two largo trunks
Ono day aha received n letter postmarked
"Cnlro." It contained $10 nothing elio
not n word of writing. Sho tnt up in
bed and consulted with hcnclf how sho
should spend tho money, and nt last
sent ono of the women to a jewelry
(tore nnd bought a gold chain nd lockot
for tho child the product of her weak
ncss. This was near tlm hour of her douth,
which the women who waited upon her
saw fmt approaching. At lt they told
her the solemn truth nnd naked her if
they should sond for a gentleman who hud
befriended her and for a minister. Tlio
truth frennlcd her, and sho cried 'and

I low then could tills weak woman, with
her cries nnd prayers and curses, drive
him away. Sho fell into his arms railing,
and Shouting for tho life she could not

said of Messrs. Budcr and Rarclay. Mr
Bud or bus been a good alderman, and

clay has had considerable ex

is lust tho man for the place. Air. Fulton

tho third ward, and, Mr. Robinson bo nil

this arrangement tho republicans would I
havo two-thirds of the select council and
tho democrats four of a majority in tho
board of aldermen. Wo don't see why
this would not bejust the thing, or there-
winston AND iinoss.
'Hie contest between theso two gentle-
men for the offico of police magistrate is
assuming a personal complexion. Col.
Winston Is tho representative of the men
who disupprovo Judge Bross' conduct and
bearing in tho county court, nnd who bo
lievo he is unnecessarily rude and bluff in
his treatment of the people who have
official buiinoss to transact with
him. Ho hasahabit-a vcrybadone.ho
must permit us to say of ''going for
everybody's bills without giving any ex
planation, and thus has offended many of
his warmest personal friends. There is
not. wo venture to say, an ofllcor of the
county, or n lawyer who has had business
with his court, who has not hid reason to
be angry with him. Tho Judge has taken
no trouble to mollify this auger, and it has
been developed! Into tlio candidacy of Col.
Winston for tho city offico Bross occupies
und to bo re-elected to which he has ox-
pressed 11 desiro. The Colonel's friends
" This U n tight against Bross as a public
otllccr. Wo nay his ofllcinl conduct has
displeased tho people of Cairo and wo
wish to try that issue. It can bu done, if
neither of the candidates aro bolstered by
tho nomination of a convention if thoy
nro permitted to run on their own merits.
If this is not done if," say Col. Winston's
friends, "Judge Bross is bolstered by being
surreptitiously placed on tho "citizen's
ticket," ns much n wo would regret to do
so, and although we should disliko to op
pose gentlemen llko Lnnedcn, Taylor,
Pope, Howley nnd Cain, we could not pre
vent nn opposition from growing up, and
the result would undoubtedly bo disastrous
to those gentlemen." This is somewhat of
a threat, but it will senro nobody. Both
Judgo Bross and Col. Winston opposed
thoto "excellent gontlemen" lust year, and
their oppojition did not amount to much.
Wo huvo thercforo enrtainly little
to fear this yoar If tho forces of the opposi
tion arc divided. But this is neither hero nor
there. The question is: Should Col. Win
ston and his friends bo allowed to make
up tho issue thoy desiro the issue of
Judgo Bross' faithfulness and efllciency as
u county officer. ? That will bo tho Usuo if
the.e two gentlemou run as independent
candidates, neither being nominated by a
convention, slnco if Rross should be de
feated ns police mr.gistratoho will bo com
pelled tcrreslgn tho county Judgeship, tlio
salary of that ofiico being altogether in
sufficient to support any uihii. Then

chargo of using offensive lunguage and as
saulting Mrs. 31. A. Purcell. He was
fined $3, which was till wrong, as he did
not whit) her, but only pushed hor down

would liavo dono under niinilnr circum

"Honey Moon" about a man being a coward
who would lay his hand on a woman save
in n way of kindness U all bosh. Of

for retaliating on Mrs. Purcell for having

and in having her fined 5. Didn t sho abuse
him, and uso languago that was calculated
to mako him push hor down stairs, and
didn't ho push hor, and wasn't It right to
have hor flood for getting herself Into
such trouble? To ask the question is to ro

Tho Sim wishes us to inform it whethor
the intention of tho Illinois Central rail
road to removo its southom terminus to
Mound City has not grown out of some
thing more than the petty annoyances of
tho people who wish tho track taken from
the loveo. Wo did not say the Illinois
Central hud any such intention, und don't
bollevo it hus. What wo did say was, that
a hopeful Mound City frhmd wos chuck
ling over tho fuct that tho Central was
searching at Mound City for 11 good placo
to build u bridgo across tlio Ohio. It may
be tho Central has such intention, but wo
doubt it. This however we do know, that
Cairo has not lost anything by having the
southern terminus of tiiu Central, and
thoso citizons who are always seeking to
embnrnss tlio compnify give it troublo
and put It to exponse are very foolish
people, almost ns silly as the woman or
man or boy who killed tho gooso thut laid
the golden egg.
