Cairo Is periodically afllictcd with tran
sient thieves attributable, perhaps, to
police raids upon them In other cities.
As a gcnurnl thing they do not industri
ously follow their calling while in our
midst, merely "cracklngn crib" oremp
tying a till, now aud then, to keep up
the supply of spending money. Hut
they do operate on travelers arriving nt
and departing from tho city a fact that
is evidenced by the thefts on tho cars
which wo notice in another column.
Now, whethor these rascals forago on
our people ornot, they area very unde
sirable class of citizens, and should be
promptly ousted. Their presenco should
not bo tolerated a day. Tho cursings
their operations on travelers oxcite, fall ,
upon Cairo, and thero aro those who
will not disconnect them from the town.
It becomes, therefore, a matter of duty
upon tho part of our police, to
enforce the "vug" act against
them, If they cannot reach them
otherwise. They seek Cairo as "a city
of refuge," no doubt. Let them learn
that there Is "no rest for the wicked"
even in Cairo.
During a period of n year and n half,
the claim of Messrs. Fox, Howard fc Coj
against the city, has been more or less
prominently before the public. Although
tho debt hung over the city Id the shape
of n Judgment, thero were thoso who op
posed any approach to a settlement, and
a few who favored direct repudiation.
Hotter councils, however, provallcd. Tho
parties to the controversoy met In a
spirit of conciliation, and n settlement
followed that seems to give very general
satisfactiod. The select council took final
notion on the ordinance authorizing the
Ikmuo of tho required bonds, last night,
leaving no furtherstepsonjthopartof the
council necesiary. The bonds will now
bo 1B3UVU unit ilcllrcivil, anil tlio ri!ici
pal sum thus fixed upon the shoulders of
tho next generation. -The annual Inte
rest, nearly niuo thousand dollars, will
bo paid in cash.

Villa Itidgc, three years ago n mere

most prosperous points on tho line of tho
Illinois Central railroad. It ranks third
in tho state in tho production of straw
borries, has a splendid public school, a
horticultural hall, several stores, a mar

large gardening and fruit growing Inter

Wo do not know whether our friend
E , Uiu Cairo partner of tho largest,
best aud cheapest hoot and shoo estab
lisbuicnt In Cairo, enjoyed theeo sensa
tions the other nJght; but wo do known
man who would have hud all of them, nud
more, If ho had been!!:: E.'s skin In tho
eventful occaslou to which wo refer. It
Is a well known fact that E. is a careful
man, and not much afrftld of. anybody1
He sleeps Inn room, above the store;
nnd, generally, keeps for u?e on short
notice, an excellent pistol, bought ex
prcssly for the purposo of perforating
burglars. But, conscious security breeds
carelessness nnd Indifference In the most
careful men; and E. had becomo infect
ed. He thought there was no danger,
nnd began to leavo his pistol in the
storeroom nt night. He was guilty of
this carelessness on the night lu ques
tion; and, to put the expression Into
"spasmodic" language, soon after ho re
tired, he embraced the somuorlllc deity.
When theuighthad passed to thechurch
yard ynwuing hour, and justbeforo tho
"heralds of the morning," (or in more
prosaic language, tho roosters of the city)
tooted theirhornstotell of comlngdawn,
while ull was yet darkness, E. awoke.
We aro glad to say that bright dream
wasn't the fair, although ho is in tho
shoo business; but it might havo been.
Ho awoke, and became nwaro of tho
fact, that burglars were in the storeroom
beneath hlra, "l'0hS iiuoogti" thin,,.,
miu nelplng themselves to what they
wanted. What should ho do? He had
no pistol. Thejburglars had that. Ho
had no weapon of any klud; nud he
could not reach tho street, lu front or
rear, to give nn alarm. They were vil
Hans who make Loot out of nil men; nnd
they were lucontinentlyuinkingoffwitli
the fine boots of the firm. Theirs wus
not bootless labor; that was evident. E.
felt uu Intense desire to apply tho toes of
his individual booUJlto their persons;
but belngn wlso man, ho knew discre
tion to ho the better part of valor, aud
he didn't make tho attempt. But some
thing had to bo douo;nnd. did it,
Taking tho sheet from the bed ho
wrapped It around his body, nud quietly
removed tho trap-door from the hatch
yay in his room. Tho burglnrs, still busy,
were walking about the room,
carefully "gobbling" boots and sloes
with astonishing ability. After awhile
they enmo directly under tho hatchuay,
when E. uttered a most heartrending
groan and dropped among them, a ghos
as nerfectjas over came from tho grave.
Tho tables were now turned. It was the
burglnrs' time to bo frightened. They
thought tho dovll was to pny; thntjho
day of Judgement was nt hand; that all
tho grave yards In Christendom had
broko loose. We cannot assert, positive
ly, that tholr souls wero harrowed up;
that their eyes, like stars, started from
their spheres; or that their knotted ncd
uncombed locks parted nud stood on end
like Iqullls upon tho frotful porcuplni;
but they wero frightened. Thero can ho
no doubt of that. They left tholr plun
der, and decamped followed by tho my
t'crious gruuns of E. who had fallen upon
tiem in such n questionable shapo. Nor
were E'h groans forced. Tho Jump was n
perilous one; and, In tho darkness, ho
fell against n counter or box nnd raised n
'gooso's egg" on his head, nn omnmont
ho wenrs even yet. But whnt of that?
Ho had been successful. The robbers
wero gone; and his boots nnd shoes wero
safe. He now sleeps with throo or four
pistols, and is offering his stock of goods
at such low figures overy body niust buy.
AU tho mon's, women's, boy's and girl's
shoos that tho robbers didn't get nro be
Ing Bold at ruinous rates, so thatE. may
not'bo romluded by looking nt them of
tho fright ho had, nnd his experience In'
tho character of "Tho Ghost;" and so
that other robbors may have no induce
ment to break in nnd steal.

watch, and a signet and key dangling
at tho 'end of a valuable gold chain.
Somebody on board tho train took a fan
cy that the watch and chain were tho
very articles ho had been looking for,
nnd the result was that when Llnegar
attempted to consult his time, at Jones
boro, ho found his time-piece and all Its
appendages, gone. And an old Ken
