the other a "club footed dog." This was
a gross insult to "club foot," and he
"went for" Ids hisulter. The conflict

"Oh ! what a beauilinl green sward,"
exclaimed one of a party of young ladle
from I'aducali, while perambulating onr

"ThU Is the only grassy i-pot I have
'ecu hi Cairo," she continued, "and
1 am going to take a walk on it.''
She took one step and sank In water to
the depth of two feet. The beautiful green
grass, as she supposed, was nothing more
than the green scum that had accumu
lated on the "rain water" in that locality.
.She took her departure from Cairo not

while switching a train for tho Mis

A Uilllililllti'l Klrocl.
Eur i oh Uui.i.utin : 1 would call the
especial attention of the city council to
the unsafe and dilapidated condition of
the plank sidewalk on Fourteenth street,
between Commercial and Wrulilngtoii
avenues. I think It strange that the Com
mittee on Streets and Sidewalks havo al
lowed tlio walk on this much frequented
thoroughfare to remain so long a peril to
life and limb. I must confess that I never
beheld a sidewalk in Midi a public place,
In such a shapeless, warped, rickety ami
dl-Joluted condition.
If this Gliould glvo way (as It may at
any moment) lu the night or while
women or children aro crossing it, being
partly over a deep pond of water, It Is
probable that some lives would bo lost.
Hence, several suits against the city for
damages would bo the result. Xow I re
spccllully suggest that two sidewalks
iiictumi of one be constructed on the said
street. Tlio continual increase of travel
since the completion ot tlio now Postolllco
demands another sidewalk on tho opposite
side. Nearly all tlm lots that trout on said
street belong to 1. X. A. Grlswold, of
llhodo Island, who can well att'ord to help
construct such walks, considering the fab
uloris war prices that lie used to realize for
tho same, etc. Yours truly,
