LOCAL HAPPENINGS. -Mr.
John Tanner, now a full-fledjjed
Minsounan, was in Cairo, yesterday, glad
ta meet liin friends who seemed equally
gt.l to meet him.
V') less than fourteen huckster) were

from tiis Miasisvpyi Central railroad tui
liap. His head ia sli-liCv lnuisi-d. r.inl the
chimney by heat. This being true, it will
prove a great blessing loconl oil consumers.
There was quite a pleasant party ut
Turner hall, last night, given hy tho Ex
cel Wor Social and Literary Cluh,
compliment to Miss May Harnian and Miss
Jennie McKeii7.ii;, who are about t take
their departure from tlio city.
The concentrated essence of seventy
five tanks of crude petroleum must have
been brought to tho vicinity of the I.C.lUt.
round house, yesterday afternoon, and let
loose upon tho unoffending nostrils of the
habitues of that locality.
Ono Thomas Kencday, bethinking
himself to have a jolly timo of it before
tho old year went out, got booming drunk,
yesterday, and tho Marshal 'put his grip
pal on him. Judgo Bird' applied a two
dollar fine as a plaster to the city's wounded
dignity, and Thomas being unable to pay
therefor, together with tlio accumulated of
ficial perquisites, was sent sent over for five

There was quite a collision on the 111
inois ( cntral, near Dongola, yesterday eve
ninr. between a freight train drawn by
engine 112, with Tom Catlett at the
trottle valve, and another frtight, hitched
to engine 117, with Mr. RusbacU in charge.
Both enginns were thrown from the track;
but nobody was hurt, nnd no serious injury
was sustained by the engines. Who is to

The Egypt Lodge, No. 1CC7. of colore
Odd Fellows, holds a banquet and public
installation of officers in School, hall, this
cvenlnff. The colored people have won
considerable reputation for the smooth am
systematic mauner in which they conduct
their installations. It is claimed for them
that they "lav their white bretheru com
pletelyin the shade,"" in that respect, butas
the public is invited, everybody can attend
and judge for himself.
There is a vague rumor abroad that one
of our citizens, wishing to end his partici
pation in the cares und tribulations of this
life, swallowed a two-ounce dose of laud
uum. By tho prompt interference of friends
who seemed to have a greater care for his
life than he, himself, had, and by the use ot
powerful antidotes, he was saved. We
should not have given place to this rumor,
in the columns of Thk Buu.kTi.v, but for
the fact which wc soon discovered, that wo
would not, thereby, add greatly to its pub
licity in Cuiro. Wo heard it in all parts
of the city.
While Frank Swolwda was iu the act
of putting a revolver iu his piatol pocket )
about 'J o'clock, night before last, a cart
ridge in one of the chambers was by
so:nu means exploded, sending the ball
plowing through the flh of his thigh, to a
point about midway between the hip and
knee. The Htrangct part of the affair is
thatSwoboda didn't know ho was hurt un
til next nioruing. Receiving a sudden jolt
he felt a keen pain in tho wounded part,
and examination being made it was ascer
tained that the ball had not, as was sup
jjosed passed into tho floor, but was still in
theg. From that time forth the pain was
conaulerable. The ball was extracted by
Charles Williams, a stout lusty-looking
"broth of a boy," was brought before Judge
Bird, yesterday afternoon, on a charge of
having violated ordinance so-and-so, pro
liihitin siuw balling. He had selected the
street in fr.int of tlio Springfield block as
Ilia fluid of operations, and occasioned more
dodging, lor the space of live minutes, than
(was done among Cairo Republicans when
tho draft was pending. Before tho judgo
ho insisted that ho bo pardoned because ho
didn't know he was breaking the "audi
ence,'' calling the jud&rc'a attention to the
tact that in St. Louis no man is punished
unless he knows his crime is in violation of
law. Neither the prayer nor the plea wus
effective; nnd Charles having no money,
went over for live days.
We have, in Cairo, as many as a score
of young men, who, having madu costly
Christmas present to young women, are
ruefully contemplating the condition of
their collapsed purses. On salaries thut
are merely adequate to a decent support,
some of tiiem ventured upon presents that
absorbed the income of a full month. The
consequence of such thoughtless liberality
will be seen in freshly contracted debts, if
nothing worse, until tho practice of sensible
economy brings matters square again. Now
that th. s;; young men feel tho folly of their
presents, kiiow that tho sensible recepients
reurnbato tliu spirit that leads
them into stieli excess" since they feel
and know this, why not muke this New
Year's day the oecat-ion for a set of whole
some resolutions? Piomlnont in tho set
let then; be a restitution to limit tho cost of
future holiday gifts to tlu.ir ability to give
this, and not forget that no sensible girl
can think the better of him for giving her
present which she knows i beyond his

Kwstblv, the memory may have the effect
of inaugurating in Cairo an era of sensible
li is said that between two and three
iimdifd men and women in Si. Louis drink
daily from a half to a pint-of blood, piping
hot from the veins of slaughtered entile.
More blood drinking by consumptives and
aged persons is done iu September and Oc-
tober tlian'dnring the remainder ol the,
. . , r. ... I- ...
year, nm moon oi young hutih i ui
best, find should bo caught as it comes
from the animal, and drank while the foam
is .till on, nnd the steam rising. Consump
tives are advised, in addition to drinking
tbe blood, to sit in a slaughter bouse for a
couple ofhours every day at killing time to
inhale the "steam" of the running blood
Of the efficacy of this treatment during the
incipient singes of consumption, evidence is
not wantim' even in Cniro. We have in our
mind's eye at least two young persons who
owe tho preservation of their lives to a free
use of warm beef blood. The dose is re
voltiiiL' at first but an appetite is soon re
quired that esteems a bowl of warm, frothy
blood as a most palatnmo luxury. It any
of our readers have in contemplation a use
of that nutritious liquid, the day suggests a
yplendid starting point.
- Iu Cairo, to a les? extent p' rhnps", than
in any city of the Ohio valley, do we so:;
the terrible results of enforced idleness
utnong the working classes. While this is
true, however, it is also truo that the poor
are among us in unusual numbers. Scores
of families that had small accumulations of
money with which to provide for tho winter,
were driven, as they thought, to nn nxpi n
diture of the last dollar of the fum, in
protecting themselves from the epidemic of
the summer. Some of these, with scores ot
others who are always destitute, with others
who have been unfortunate, with otheiB
who by age, sickness or mishap are render
ed incapable of taking care of themselves
all these form a large total that deserve and
expect tho help of the better-to-do citiz n
But what is nu occasional thing in Cairo,
has become a thing of alarming fie
quency iu all the larger cities, especially
of the North nnd East. We refer to the
sight of heads of fi-milh s begging bread.
Since the advent of cold weather the desti
tution among the poor of the large citief
has become appalling. In Xew York, Bos
ton. Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Cincinnati,
Pittsburg nnd Chicago, the headquarters
the departments of charities are constantly
besieged by great crowds of hungry, shiver
ing men. women nnd children, who are, as
the crowds before them were, turned away
empty-handed. The streets are thronged
iy storm-drenched, dispirited mer and
women, vainly passing from house te hous
in sciirch i'f work hundreds offeritg their
labor for the bare food thrit will keip their
kouIs and bodies totrother. In Xev York,
where one would, judging from appear
ances, suppose that all the poor of creation
had congregated, the charily department of
the city government has not been supplied
with funds. As a consequence of 1 1. is nm.st
reprehensible delay or oversight, thousands
of tnmilies 15,000 so the papers say are
brought to tho very vergo of starvation.
Strong, healthy, vigorous men plead for
the work that will buy coarso bread
for their children; women, old nnd young,
willing to sell themselves to damnation for
the scant necessities that will stave off cold
and hunger. And yet, in .yicw of this
hoploss, terrible destitution j&lniost tinder
our eyes, we look three thousand miles
away for scents of want aud i suffering to
touch our sympathies. While we" arc spec
ulating what dire, sufferings may come to
the peopleof England un,d Scotland, there
are thousands aud tens of thousands of
suffering human beings clamoring at our
doors for bread to stay tho gnawings of
present hunger. The picture presented
by a recent New York Herald, of the pre
vailing destitution iu that city, is sombre.
cnoU"h in its colorings to throw shadows
upon the hearts even of the most miserly.
But to New Y'ork we commend the poor
of New York. Tho people of Cairo have
to do with tho poor of Cairo, and upon
this blessed First Day of January, 1S7!,
a most fitting time to inaug-
. i.. i i . .
urate a mo'-emeut looKing to me renei oi
those who are destitute. Neither the county
nor the city has organized systems; and if
the poor had no other source of help, they
would starve and die by the wayside. How
many of those who are able to dispense
charities, will divide their calls to-day, be
tween tho homes where the silk-be clnd
hostess dispenses smiles and cakes and wi
water, and the huts and hovels ol
those who breakfasted upon their last
mors .1 of food, and know not how or from
what source shall come the supply that is
to appease their already growing huiger?
We enn't keep a record of the calls; but
there is hii Eye that has a eare for the
poorest of mortals, thut will keep tho
record, und if wo could only keei. that that
Eye is constantly upon us, wo would inter
sperse duty with pleasure in a manner- that
would bo astonishing even to ourselvu.
