From .Mr. F. Korsmcycr we learn that
the public schools will re-open on the

exceptions, have been re-engaged. In

will be taught during the lirst part of the

Crop In the I'oiiiily.
From Air. N. Hun-acker, 11 prominent
fanner from Hog Tooth Hend, we learn
that the. Mississippi river has overflowed
irtost nil of tho farms In Dog Tooth, one
of the .'Ichest ami most fertile portions of
our county, to tliu depth ot four feet,
lie, however, states that tho water com
menced falliuu' yesterday, ami should
the water go oil rapidly, il Is thought
that, inasmuch as the eorn Is so far de
veloped, It will not bo damaged much.
In regard to wheat, the crop Is better than
has been .known itor years, but that
which has been harvested has
been damaged greatly, and that
part which Is not yet
harvested, on account of the ocr
llow, Is damaged to n greater extent.
Twenty thousand bushels of wheat are
111 the neighborhood, hut not more than
ten thousand dollars tan bi realized from
It. Among tho losers are Messrs. Itlley,
Lime, O. Greenlee, Mulcahey, Mlscll,

Mr. llunsacker preserved his corn by

corn but will lose on wheat by the lafc
heavy rains.

The Council will probably dispense

Ihe (.'ottni.it will meet again next
Tue-day night. There will be, probably,
mother bout between Ills Honor and the
Aldermen 011 that occasion, everybody
oii'dit to go to the meetlii'' and witness
the circus.
Odlcer Hillingsly is shooting dogs,
we are told. Whore does Hillingsly get
his authority V H. is one of the Mayor's
men. and the Mayor Is an antl-shootcr.
Why don't the Mayor therefore ascertain
the authority H. has for popping at curs.
We stated yesterday that the C'oiin

country by saying to it: "Cairo is iu dan

there is great danger; If they march up
seven feet more wo nre gono 1" Now he
know that the rivers could not rhu seven
feet more; but hewNhed to be .sensational
at the expense of the city that gives him
his bread and butter.
The .V101, from objecting to the pro-
po-ed Tax-Payers' league as a league of

horse, and rides It, by saying: "Why
not let In men that tiro not tax-payers'?"
If tho tax-payers of Cairo take care of
themselves, the nou-tax-payers will have
no rca-on to complain. Hut wo are not
of tho association. We would, If we were
running it, take In all sensiblu eltieus.
The proposed Citizens' Association,
denounced by the .Vim as a spider's par
lor and nest of lav-dodging rascals, Is not
dead as that veracious sheet has declared.
It Is a very lively corpse, If wo may trust
our eyes. We have looked 'over tho list
of names siv ned to tho "call," about a
hundred of them, and recognize those of
many or our best cltl.ens and heaviest
lux-payer. Nearly every merchant hi
the city has put his namu into the list.
Theso are the men the Sun denounces by
Implication by asking Insulting ques
tions about tho "lcagiw"ns rascals.
The Sun says : "Thu Sun had no rel-
erenco to Aldoiinau Ilalllday on Wednes
day, and tlio Hi'i.li:ti.n ceitalnly knew It
when It Hied to mix things this morn
lug." How could we know It ? The .V101
spoke of an Alderman trying to run
thing" ni the last Council meeting. Now,
Alderman Ifnllldny nut' only tried to
"run" but did ' 'run" that meeting. We
therefore concluded the Sun mcautllalll
day. Hut, since we were mistaken, w ho
did the.S'ioi inenni' which of tho Alder
men? We beg the eontouuded little
cowardly thing to be a little brave nt
once and tell us which of Ihe Aldermen
It did mean by Its insulting little squib.
