The most independent men in Cairo
now are the woodhaulers. In spite of the

us that he is meeting with good encourage

The wedding of Mr. Frank C.aligher
of this city and Miss Fannie Babbeof Pad
ucah. will be one of the most brilliant af
fairs of its kind that ever occurred
in this part of the couutry. All

is no doubt that it will be long remembered
by the people of Paducah, whsre the wed

Mr. Gladdeu.the colored gentleman who

Edison asserts that the electricity requi
site to supply one burner during the night,
will, during the day furnish sufficient mo
tive power to run a sewing machine, and all
at an expense of about four cents for the
twenty four hours. A very
readable article appears in an
other column this morning on the electric
li'lit. His exhibitions promised at Christ
mas and since have proven successful, the
lights burning continuously without any
apparent diminution in their luminosity.
Remember the sale of the E. F. Davis
property next Tuesday. This certaiulv is
the best paying investment offered for a
long tune. Four thousand invested in four
per cent bonds would bring one hundred
and sixty dollars, while a like- amount lu.
vested in this property would net its owner,
clear of expenses, about eight hundred per
annum. Tiiis property has brought an an
nual actual gross income of nine hundred
and sixty dollars, and that during the dull
est time in our history.
The theory of rain has broken out in a
new phase, in one oi our exenanges. a
Col. Thompson. (The Blu.ehx has not
the honor of the Colonel's acquaintance)
reviews and explains the theory that rail
roads and their operations are among the
greatest sources of increased rainfall in the
mmntries reported arid; and expresses the
opinion that these powerful artificial con
ductors have already changed the climate
along the Northern Pacific Railroad, and
that the same effect will follow railroad
construction everywhere in the northwest.
So little has of late been said ill u-gurd
to our public schools through the press, that

Thompson teach in the Thirteenth street

Tanner, Misses Ross, Ciisty nnd Mrs. Cur

the highest grade, and Well qualitled to

An important action was taken ly the
State Board of Agriculture Wednesday nf
ternoon on a matter presented by the YVo
man's Christian Temperance Union, of
Springfield. During the forenoon a dele

nnd presented a petition praying that the
board prohibit the sale of intoxicatii:-; liq

three, which was composed of the Ron.

that the board strictly prohibit th0

THE GRAVE OF CHILDHOOD.
Sweet, sunny, beautiful childhood ! The.
whole great world before; a wonder world
where every thing is new and Htrange ! The
spring of life, where its stream break out.
of the past and flows onward into the cloud
enveloped future. What a dream it is, ami
yet how terribly real ! Every child to its
loving parent is a divine incarnation.
They feel that it is a wayfarer from another
clime. It comes briuging a new atmos
phere ot love, of devotion, of se If-forge t
fulness. Its care becomes almostln wor
ship. Sanctified, unselfish. How watches
the tender mother the- cradle'; Witn what
assiduity anticipates nil the wants of her
darling. Like a gift from on liigh.an exotic,
transplanted from u brighter clime, she
cherishes it. How father and mother bend
over it with souls drawn 'together bv the
magnetism of unselfish love, and how thrill
their hearts when it first utters their name,!
Then its half articulated sentences speak i f
the spirit with all its infinite posibi!itie,
which enfolds its faculties proving itself
akin to the divine.
Like an exotic tenderly watched, whi.e
its loaves expand, and the buds seem read)
to burst into bloom, touched by untune!,
frost, is childhood by disease.' Tin-re is
something so out of" the general ordei,
something that seems so unnatural, so terri
bly crt'!, we cannot be- eonsolod, nnd wlim
d-ath claim their young lives, we repeat
the old, old story, Rachel weeping for h -t
children and refusing to be comforted
Wln-n the aged are gathered to the jrave,
we feel that the harvest i. rijie, the sick if
ha gathered its own, and their work ou
earth has been accomplished. Hut when
childhood i blasted in its budding life
and l'fore us where it made u heaven oi
joy, remains only an mid desert briny with
our tears, there conies no balm for out
wounded hearts, if we believe not that tlo
gn at Shepherd has gathered our lamb inv
his loving to! J.
Oli mother, you who watched with sin !,
unfaltering solicitude, the expanding lit".
which nestled at your Im.iiii. Whose es
was first to catch its whisper of your nam",
and in dipair wa last to hear" that hol
name half finished on its pale lips of de-ith.
When you aw the little coffin lowered into
the grave, how utterly Ji-rished every ho;..
of your he-art, and how completely disp-.ii
came to abide with you; even then, tlioiic,!i
the mists ot years may have gathered U--tween
you and that tcirible hour, you still
cherish the grassy, mound and the vernal
flower that hiODin there are picciotn in
your eyes. TLj-re i a little marble sla .
and a name which sounds like far-off mu-ii
is that all'
