D. M. McCutchcon, for two or three
years the book-keeper to Adolph Swoboda,
left Cairo, yesterday morning for Jackson,
Tennessee, where he will locate himself as
the agent of John Sprout, in tho work of
distributing among that people, consign
ments of Sproafs oysters, fish, beer, and
other articles classitble among the necessi
ties. Now that unusually hot fires are to lie
the order of tho day, it behooves everybody
to inspect his or her chimneys, stovepipes
and flues. A defect that may be repaired
for fifty cents, might, if neglected, cause
the destruction of ten thousand dollars
worth of property. A little prudence exer
cised now, may save intense regret here
after. Business about the local freight depot
of the Illinois Central depot was unusually
active yesterday. Among other local
freights we noticed eight or ten car loads
of sacked corn lor the mills of Messrs. A.
Mackie & Co. The freight house was un
usually full of miscellaneous goods, of
which Cairo business men were the con
signees. The Paducah papers Are urging upon
the town authorities the importance of ap
pointing delegates to uttend the New
Orleans Commercial Convention mention
ing the fact incidentally that Cairo has ap
pointed a delegation headed by one of her
Hallidays." That's the way gentlemen.
Place Cairo's example before them. They
will rarely go wrong if they follow it.
"Our Bakery" is the i:nmo of the new
establishment out of which Valentine
Resch proposes to furnish the people of
Cairo with as choice bread and cakes as can
be procured in the Cairo market. He litis
employed a No. 1 St. Louis baker, and has
no doubt of his ability to supply demands
for bread of all kinds, cakes and pastries,
in a manner that will give entire satisfac
tion to the most exacting and particular
customer that can be found in Cairo. AH
he asks is . trial.
A fight at fisticuffs was prevented aud
a local item spo.led, yesterday, by constable
John Sheehan. The parties had met ut the
corner of Eighth nnd Commercial; both of
them were ready and willing, and had
squared for the conflict, when Sheehan put
in appearance. 15oth of the belligerents
scampered into a neighboring building,
and the prime offender succeeded in get
ting away. The other was overhauled, but
un explanation led to his release, and thus
was there one case less in our Police Court.
County Superintendent, Mrs. P. A.
Taylor, met with a mishap, last Wednes
day, that threatened for u time, quite aeri
ous consequences. While sho was in the
act of passing through the gate, her son ac
cidentally trod upon her instep, causing
hut momentary pain; but during the day,
while in the performance of her duties in
the school room, it grew so much worse that
she was compelled to call a carriage and go
home. Yesterday she had so far recovered
from the effects of the injury that no fear
of serious consequences were entertained.
On the 2lh day of October, the last
prisoner was turned out of our county jail,
leaving the whole establishment without an
initiate. And thus it remained until about
the 'JUih of November, a period of over
three weeks, without a single boarder. On
or about the last named date, a country
negro was imprisoned on a charge of an as
sault to commit murder; and a few days
afterwards a country white man was im
prisoned for tho very common offence of
refusing to work on the roads; and these
two men form the total of imprisoned crim
inals with which the next circuit court will
have to deal, unless the number is increased
in the meantime. A like condition of af
fairs cannot be found in any county in the
state, probably nowhere' in the west. It
forms an era in the history of the county
that deserves to be remembered.
The alarm of lire, yesterday morning,
was caused by the discovery of tire around
the tlue of the Deva.ssa cottage on Division
street, occupied by Mrs. Metiauley. Had
It not been for the fortunate circumstance
that a ladder was close at hand, a most dis
astrous conllagratiou would have enui'd,
us the cottage is one of u nearly compact
row of six or eight wooden buildings. By
the prompt efforts of two or three neighbors,
which efforts -vere made effective through
the use of the ladder, the lire was extin
guished before it had made much head
way. There was a terrible alarm, how
ever, among tho neighboring women, the
men being absent at their work. Carpets
were ripped up; clothing hustled into
truuks-tud boxes, beds dismantled, and a
very general hustling together of a house
hold goods delicato fumuk'6 performing
prodigies in exhibitions of strength aud ac
tivity. Mr. Jnmcs Gash, a former resident of
Cairo, but now a citizen of Lockport, New
York, is in the city on a visit to relatives
and fii'Mids, thu name of whom is legion.
Mr. Harry Schultze and bride wero the
recipients of a serenade, Thursdjty night,
from the full Delta Silver Cornet Band.
Harry hoisted tho gas jets, invited tho boys
in, uncorked some Hue wino, cut into a de
licious pound cake, and treated them in a
style they pronounced princely.
W are sorry to learn, as we did yesterday,
that Mr. John 1). Holmes, who left Cairo
for Golden City, sometime ago, has had tho
ill fortune to lose his house and its entire
contents by lire. The fire occurred Into at
night, and it is said that it was with the ut
most difficulty and after incurring great
pcrs dial risk, that he saved the lives of his
wife and daughter. John will have the
sincere sympathy of the Cairo people,
among whom helms as many friends and as
few en 'inics, perhaps, as any man living.
There was a brutal contest between
two deck hands yesterday, directly under
tho river bank, epposite the car hoist. It
was what the parties engaged in it were
pleased to call a "prize fight." One of the
combatants wore a blue shirt, the other,
somewhat intoxicated, wore a gray shirt. A
ring was formed, and the two bruisers were
given to understand that they would be
forced to observe the rules of the prize
ring. At it they went, and for a time
fought like angered beasts; but it soon be
came apparent that the gray had taken too
much whisky. After the first round or two
ho was knocked off his pins as fast as he
faced his opponent; but he continued tb
"come ii) smiling" as long as he was able
to get up to a standing posture. About
the twenty-fifth round, his "wind" forsook
him and he remained in a recumbent position,
his face battered nnd bruised until it was
revolting to look at. The spectators inclu
ded ten or fifteen loafers and bruisers, and
several citizens who looked on from a dis
tance in the hope that they would see the
brutes knock each other's head off. But
they were not gratified, neither were the
human tigers held to account for the brutal
exhibition in which they were the actors.
They fought upwards of twenty minutes.

THE RACE TO-DAY.
CONSIDKltAIlI.E KXCITEXENT IX SPOIUINO
CIHCI.r.S KVKllYTHINO tKAlV Ko!t AN
In the upper part of the city, yesterday,
the all-absorbing topic was the race that is
to come off on the Island course at 2 o'clock
this afternoon, between Kynaston's horse
Harlem, and Mr. Owen's Butcher Boy. The
sentiment run largely in favor of Kynas
ton's animal, although it was not a difficult
matter to find backers for the other at dol
lar for dollar. One gentleman whom we
met stated that he had $701) bet on Harlem
an I was anxious to increase the amount to
$1,000. Ho purposed ''going his pile," or
in other words, it would be "no saloon, on
the morrow, or a wholesale liquor house."
From the same source we learned that bets
amounting to at least $2,000 bad been
made, independent of the principal stakes,
which aro valued at $'iu0. Mr. Carter
Williams, who resides in the vicinity of
Chicago, and who is the reputed owner of
"Butcher Boy" was expected by the after
noon train, with any iimount of money,
from $1,000 to $10,000 to stake on the Chi
During the past three weeks, Harlem has
been under the constant training of Dave
Harrison, and is believed to be in excellent
condition. The other animal hits under
gone like training, and is, like bis antagon
ist, in prime order. The Kynaston horse
will be ridden by Dave M unlock, who, if
success in former races forms a good rule
by which to shape n conclusion, is a No. 1
rider, and can bring out of a racer every
thing that is in him. Butcher Boy will be
ridden by u Chicago colored boy, imported
for that purpose.
News of the race has gone broadcast,
and as early us yesterday morning a number
of persons from abroad had reached the
city, and will be on tho ground to
day as spectators. Should the weather
be favorable (and the race will probably be
postponed if it isn't) the race will bo wit
nessed by the largest crowd that ever gath
ered in this end of the state on a like oc
casion. Of the pedigrees or performances
of the two animals we know nothing, and
didn't care to inform ourselves. Of the
result of the race and all of the attending
details, our readers will be apprised in to

SIDERATION 01' TIIK HKNKVOl.KNT AND
We have been admonished by tho hints
thrown out during the past week, that win
ter, with its accustomed severity, will soon
bo upon us. Thu weather hitherto has been
unusually mild, even in this temperato cli
mate, where tho extremes of the north and
south aro never felt. But we cannot urguo
its continuance. The time is quite at hand
when cold, biting weather will necessitate
the use of fires and heavier clothing. How
are those families in our midst, w ho are
now destitute, who even during our balmy
und springlike weather, found it a hard
struggle to provide tho food that kept the
wolf of -starvation from the door bow tire
these families, in nddition to that food, to
provide themselves with tho fuel and
heavier clothii.g that are to prevent actual
suffering? For a period of nearly sixty
days, every kind of business was
quite at a stand utill in our city. There was
little work for the laboring man or mechanic,
among these poor, am1 m my who
had accumulated a small sum of
money ahead to provide against
the severities of the winter, fult called upon
to expend the hist farthing of it in placing
themselves and dependents, beyond the
reach of danger. Because of this expendi
ture and the protracted season of enforced
idleness that preceded it, never before irt
the history of Cairo, were there so many
families who viewed the approach of winter
with such grave misgivings never before
were so many of our citizens, men, women
and children, in such need on the threshold
of winter. That tho sharp, cold, biting
nights and mornings of December and Jan
uary will bring keen suffering and actual
want, to doz MH and scores of homes, i s too
evident now, to admit of questioning.
In view of this painful certainty, would it
not be wise to provide for it in advancer
Should not our charitable organizations
and charitably disposed ladies, make an ef
fort to secure the control of means that will
enable them to promptly furnish relief, on
tho demand of tho needy? When
the emergency is upon us, when
the winter's frosts and winds are freezing
the thinly chid and poorly lodged; when
gaunt hunger is abroad, and when sickness
adds its pains and terrors to thu prevailing
wants at such a juncture there will be lit
tle time to hunt from door to door und
hous3 to house for the means wherewith to
supply needs that brook no delay w ithout
exacting their penalty.
It has been well said that "Charity is
never out of place;" but it can never be
more timely than at the commencement of
a season of cold and stormy weather. If
our people of wealth, our prosperous mer
chants and men of comfortable incomes
would "poo!" their contributions, a depot
of cheap flour, potato??, corn meal, meat
and coal might be established, from which
the p'jor could be supplied at a little more
than half the cost that attends the retail
purchase of articles to supply the individ
ual cases as they aris. With coal at $','
per ton, meat at (I cents, flour ut $" per
barrel nnd potatoes tit :( cents n bushel,
th" i,;i)i:ry thai might be realized from a
siiiL'!" eiitert-ti.-iiie ut, by the M. K. of K.
would provide a store that would supply
twenty or thirty families for a whole month.
Tie e suggestions are entitled to serious
consideration, otherwise we should not feel
called upon to make them.
The appearance of poor women upon our
streets trying to sell some simple article of
household g'xsls for money wherewith to
buy bread; the abject poverty to be seen in
out-of-the-way hovels; tho ragged, barefoot

day. ail assura us that Cairo, like every
other city on earth, has its share of the
poor and needy; nnd the advent of chilly

TION. The town of Mt. Vernon, Posey county,
Indiana, is rapidly winning a notoriety that
is infamous. If half the reports descrip
tive of mobs, shooting scrapes, and raids
upon negroes, that go out from that place
are true, the parishes of East aud West

Mit. EntToii: Your suggestion, in The
lU'i.i.ETiN, that the testimonial to be pre
sented to Mayor Winter be a purse of gold,
may be, und I presume is, a good one; but
I think I can propose one in every way
mote appropriate and servicable. My sug
gestion, (this from a woman's stand-point,
mind you), would be to take that sum of
gold, and buy our mayor a really handsome
gold watch und chain, inscribed with the
name of the recipient, why it was presented
to him, when, etc. Such a present would
be. prcservablc, presentable, and would be a
hundsmio ornament, well fitted to adorn
the portly person of our mayor, und would
be handed down from his own to his grand
children, an heirloom that would
be worthy thu occasion. Ten times
its value in com would be gone,
in one years' time, with no memory or trueo
of its whereabouts. Men cannot keep gold
they have too many uses for it; but they
can and do keep watches. Such a testi
monial would be a reminder to our mayor
of the honor and respect shown him by his
fellow-citiZ"iis, and as such, would, I have
no doubt, be a pleasure to him that would
double its value in his eyes, many times
over, Please let my suggestion lollow
