A resident of the Fourth ward who has

suggestion last night, and, until 11
o'clock kept a watch. During that time
ho saw two persons approach tho coveted
fuel, with tho evident purpose of coulls
eating at least a shoulder load. Ho was
convinced that such was their purpose
by the fact that when he commanded
them to "put down that wood I" thoy
obeyed, and scampered off In n hurry.
But all tills didn't savo his wood pllo.

For tlio Cairo 'Kullotin.j
It can no longer bo denied that tho
colored population aro considering tho
probability of being made voters, in tho
stato of Illinois, aud in connection with
tho subject, the following will show
how some of tho loyal color feel, politic
ally: In ono of our groceries a few dfrya
since, ono of tho eons of Ham (who is an
exception to tho general ralo an indus
trious speclman of loyalty in tho ex
treme) sat in tho door while many citi
zens wero passing by to dinner, solilo
quising thusly: "You'ns are Repub
licans; da tain a Democrat; dar comes u
Republican," etc., until tie proprlotor
becamo Interested in his conversation to
hlniHolf, and asked how ho could tell a
Democrat from a Republican. Tho sablo
philosopher raised himself' to his full
length, aud replied "why byhla clothes
oocourael You boo 'diem ropubllcnns
always pay do ulggcr for sawing wood
lu old clothes, and do democrats always
pay cash; so hard times am come, and
do demoorata wears his old cloths; but
do republicans have to wear hlm's best
uud can afford It, as day charged do nig
ger enough for do old ones to buy now
ouea." Tho philasopher further adds
that ho sawed wood for a lady whoso
politics ho did not know until tho wood
was sawed, whon he learned, to his ro
gret that It was a republican Job. But as
the lady had told him In tho evening
that her husband would be homo at
night, and that he could call next day
for his pay,ho felt somewhat encouraged.
Ho called nnd the lady answered thu
bell herself; had a pair of old pants In
her hand as sho opened tho door, which
ho took, .making the remark, "all right,
I expected so," und started to look up a
casbjob, when ho was halted by the old
Jady who accuned him of ateallug and
took the pants away from lilra, nnd
threatened hha with arrest, if he came
around thelrjpremiscs again. The darkey
added; "so I gut nuflln for sawing dat
two cords of wood as far as heard from."
"If this nigger over votes" ho continued
"and votes for a republican, in Cairo, ho
hopes he will hare to comb hla weel
wltli a flno tooth combevory week, and
so without watermelons for ten years."
