Miss Louisa Mooro lives on Fourth
street. Hlio Is in humble circumstances,
having to earn her livelihood by "day's
About o'clock yesterday afternoon a
strange woman entered Miss Mooro's
humblo abode, carrying In her arms a
boy baby, about ton mouths old, and In
her hand a black carpet-sack. She mado
known the fact that alio lived In Jackson,
Missouri, somo eight or ten miles from
Cape Girardeau, and was In Cairo on
business. Hho was a stranger, and being
somewhat fatigued, alio would feel much
obllgod if Miss Moffre would permit her
to loavo hor baby and carpot-sack in the
house until sho went out in town and
secured chango for a bill. Permission
was given, and the strange woman left
tho house. An hour passed by, then
night eamo on, but tho mother did not
return. Tho baby bocame hungry and
frotlul and showed Miss Mooro what a
Missouri baby could do In the way of
crying when incited thereto by hunger
and neglect. The little fellow had not
yet learned how to feed from a bottle or
spoon, and resisted any attempts of the
new nurso to satisfy tho cravings of his
appetlto by any such unusual appliances.
And far Into tho night the baby bellowed
and Miss Mooro watched for the return
of the mother; but she came not. The
baby wouldn't sleep, and seemed to take
a sort of savage satisfaction In keeping
everybody else from sleeping. Tho dawn
of daylight, therefore, found Miss Moore
nursing and soothing the obstreperous
What became of tho mother, we cannot
say. It Is evident that she has purposely
abandoned her child. Tho carpet sack
contained tho baby's wardrobe, but
nothing to indicate tho namo or its
Miss Moore, being tumble and uuwil
ling to take care of the child, laid all the
facts of the caso before one of tho direc
tresses of tho Orphan Asylum, and we
presume that the youngster Is now In
stalled lu that institution. Information
from any -source tills will dissolve the
mystery Mirroundlug the transaction, will
be thankfully received either nt this office
or tho Orphan Asylum.

A little blind girl, leading a little two
year old "toddler," walked off of a
shoulder In tho sidewalk at tho west end
of Thornton's block, yesterday evening,
and fell a distance of eight or ten feet,
alighting among a lot of old crates and
rubbish. Tho women of tho neighbor
hood were thrown Into a state of consid
erable consternation, thinking to ftnu the
girl badly hurt or killed. Bho came out,
however, comparatively unhurt. The
little "two-year old" stopped on tho very
brink of the otfiet, from whouco it sur

Mr. Jacob O. Lynch Is a candidate for

condition he met two females. A third
soon Joined the crowd, and a restaurant
supper was agreed upon. Aud towards
a restaurant they directed their steps.
The third lady declined a participation,
butpromlsed to Join the festive crowd at
a point designated. The oyster and

story to swindle the restaurateur. This
tirade over-Uxid the "gentleman's''
