Newt was received hare yesterday of
the death of Peter Kuykendall, a "little old
fisherman," who ia known to nearly every
body in Cairo. He claimed to be a cousin
to Hon. A.. J. Kuykendall, of Johnson coun
ty. He was seen lt in this city less than
a week ago. Ha died at East Caito early
yesterday moraing o( pneumonia.
Young people and old who contem
plate matrimony hereafter (and we have
indirect knowledge of several swains who
are in the toils of the little god and are
liable at any moment to "throw themselves
away,") should bear in mind that the horse
hoe has given pi see to tbe wishbone, and
floral wiihboues are suspended over bridal
parties instead of boreshoes or bells.
It seems that tbe poor English family
a Tenth street, referred to in these columns
ome time ago, ia still sadly in need of aid
ia every form. In the severe cold of the last
few days they have suffers! much, being
without fuel, food or sufficient clothing
Some aid was furnished them just after
their presence was made known, but the
supplies gave out and the sufferers are in as
great need as ever, even greater in this ex
tremelycotd weather. A lady who visited
them yesterday sent them according to her
own meagre means a mattress to sleep
upon and a few dollars in money. It is
neCMMarv that further relief should be
. , - -
promptly and sufficiently given.
Last evening before 6 o'clock the
thermometer stood at 3 degrees above zero
at the signal office. Toward 9 o'clock it
fell to tero. and it was expected to go down
to below lero bv this morinir. At 11:30
o'clock a fine snow was falling, the tem
perature was a little higher than it had
been, and a stronz eale blew from the
A small party of hunters came down the
Wabash road yesterday, bringing their out
fit, including a fine New Foundland dog,
down in a freight car. After arriving here
the dog got out of the car and strayed away
and the owner, M. Bayould, living in the
vicinity of Harrisburg, offered a reward of
$10 for the delivery of tbe dog to Mr. L. B
Church, of the Union depot,
Two men belonging to the crew of a
boat that brought a load of wood down
from Metropolis yesterday got into a fight
on Ohio levee yesterday afternoon in the
course of which one of them, named Somen
struck the other over the head with a club
and inflicted a bad cut in the scalp. Chief
Myers arrested the clubbist and Magistrate
Comings fined him $5 and costs.
At its recent meeting in Springfield
the state board of agriculture resolved
"that this board reccommends to the tax
payers of the several townships of Illinois
the endorsement of the act of the last gen
eral assembly, entitled "Hard Roads,"
and approved June 18, 1883. The terms
of said law being that, to make it effective,
it must be adopted by a majority of voters
at the annual April town election."
The week of prayer which begins to
morrow will probably be observed in the
several churches of the city. The topics for
prayer are as follows : Monday, praise and
thanksgiving; Tuesday, confession of sin,
and prayer for cleansing and renewal;
Wednesday prayer for families and instruc
tors of youth; Thursday, prayer for the
church of Christ; Friday, intercession for
the nations; Saturday, prayer for the mis
sion at home and abroad.
Lut evening's weather bulletin gave
the following temperatures: Bismarck, 81
below sero; North Platte, 2 below; St.
Louis, 1 ; Dodge City, 8 above; Cairo, 10
above; Pittsburgh, 15 above; Cincinnati, 0
bove; Louisville, 8 above; Nashville, 83;
Chattanooga, 89; Memphis, 81; Vicksburg,
51;8hreveport, 53; New Orleans, 61. The
greatest fall during the previous 24 hovrs
was 19 degrees at this point; tbe next was
IS at Louisville; then 17 at St. Louis.
For two or three days the transfer
steamer W. B. Duncan has been hard at
work removing tbe drift wood that bad ac
cumulated at the foot of ber incline at East
Cairo and which constantly increased in
bulk. Slie bad not baen able to transfer
trains during all that time; but yesterday
m Tmog witn tne assistance oi toe rug
Montauk the drift was all gotten way and
trains wi-re tranfered as usual in tbe after-
noon. Tbe only pasnger train transfer
red during three or four days was transfer
red last night.
Mr. Hussey, agent for the Souths rn
Division of the Illinois Central road at
Wicklitfe, died Thursday night, after s ime
weeks' prostration with malaria. Wick
liffi is said to be very unhealthy, which is
one of the principal reasons urged against
it as the county seat. During the last year
there hav.; been thirty-two deaths, and with-
n the last two or three weeks the Illinois
Central road has had three different agents
there, two getting sick and leaving, and
the third dying.
Ice has been forming on the Mississip
pi for se veral days passed and is by this
morning, probably strong enough to permit
men to cross to Greenfield's landing. It is
eight or ten years since the Mississippi was
frozen over at this point, and it Mill prob
ably be a number of years before the same
sight and opportunity for fun on ice will
presented to Cairo people again. It is
well, however, that those who will take ad
vantage of the present opportunity, will not
venture out too far until there is no longer
any doubt that the ice is sufficiently strong.
In spite of the cold wave that struck
this section of country the rise in the river
predicted by General Hazen manifested it
self at Cincinnati, and that, too, within tbe
time specified by him. His prediction was
that a rise would occur Thursday evening
between Pittsburg and Cincinnati, where
the river was at that time falling, and, sure
enough, last evening's report gives us a
rise of eight inches from there during the
previous twenty-four hours. But from all
other points a decline is reported ; even here
a fall of three inches occurred.
St. Louis merchants, not satisfied with
the discriminations of nearly all railroads
in their favor and with the efforts of nearly
all transportation companies to give them
the benefit of all differences in freight
ratea when It Is possible to transnort anv
freight at all, are proving themselves to be
unreasonable and hoggin by aeverely cen
tring the Anchor Line company for its
failure to run its magnificent steamboats
between this city and St. Lou.ii during the
last two weeks. Capt. Eeyser has teen fit
to come out in a newspaper card, in which
he answers the growelars most effectually.
Tbe fact that navigation between here and
St. Louis has bHen dangoroiis to the larger
boats ouL'ht to be'suflkiont reason tor the
interruption to any reamnable mind.
Tdb Bulletin now rura'nuus its read
ers every day with six o duiuaiof t'ilogra
phic news of the latest Bid f r sliest that it
is possible to obtain and in advance of any
of thn laro-er dailies of St. Louis. Thb
Bulletin started with four columns as an
experiment, promising to "Jo Utter" it tbe
experiment succended; and as success
came in the form of nc subscribers and a
more liberal advertising patronage, so also
comes now the fulfillment of the promise,
It needs not couceru any
one how or iu what manner
the news is obtained ; it is sufficient to know
that it is obtained and daily spread out
before the public. But in doing this, The
Bulletin is doing what none of its pro
decessors or contemporaries have done be'
fore, and it hopes to bi estlmited accord
ingly by its readers and feels confident of
popular approval in its efforts to give the
reading public of Cain a better newspaper
than they have ever had before.
Tho mandate has gone forth that
another election is to be had in Ballard
county next August, for the purpose of set
tling the question of permanently locating
the county seat. At this election all voters
will be permitted to vote, whereat at the
former election only those in favor of re
moval were permitted to vote, and then the
total number of ballots cast were substract-
ed from the total number of legal votes in
the county, as shown by the assessor's
books. The Blandville people have alretdy
collected or subscribed $3,100 for building
a court house to be donated to the county
if their town is designated as tbe county
seat, and this fact will weigh heavily in
the balance for Blandville. The fact that
the new court house was donated at Wick-
iffe is said to have principally influenced
the voters to decide in its favor; but the
principal argument that will be made
against Wickliffj at tbe next election will
be its unhealthfulness, and it is likely that
there will be much exaggeration in this
One of the young ladies who instituted
the Leap Tear ball Thursday night, being
"cornered yesterday," gave some one a
piece of her mind concerning several of the
young men commonly believed to be es
pecially favored of tbe fair sex, who ven
tured to express displeasure at being omit
ted from tbe list of invitations to the ball
mentioned. We have no doubt that those
for whom it was intended will not relish
the "piece of mind," but it may do them
and others some good to nibble at it. Tbe
young lady, it should be said, is one of the
leaders of society, knows whereof she speaks
and is not one of those who will be led into
indiscreet utterances by personal prejudice.
She says, in the first place, it was not
the intention to slight sny
one la tact personal prelerences or
dislikes were not permitted to exert any in
fluence upon those who issued the in
vitationsthere was no intentional slight
f any one. It was trui that several very
popular young gentlemen were not invited, j
but this was tbe fault either of their sweet
hearts or it was chargeable to the fact
that it was utterly impossible to so dis
tribute invitations among seventy-five or a
undred young ladies that all the popular
younrf gentlemen in the city would be in
vited, principally because it would be im
possible to guess whom each young lady
would invite. But, though there had been
no intentional slights it appeared that sev
eral very sweet young men
had been accidentally subjected
to well merited punishment
had been given just an little d ise of the
same kind of medicine they bad been for
sometime steadily administering unto the
young ladies. These several sweet young
men had made it a practice to attaod all
social gatherings, amusements at tbe opera
house and parlor entertainments, alone, per
mitting m re young men to bring the la
dies, and then devoting themselves most
industriously to the task of "mashing."
Wsxed moustaches, sand papered heads
Hyperian locks dripping with bear's oil,
patent comylexions, cloth-top "tooth picks,"
clothes fitting like a lable on a bottle, with
eye glass, cane or opera-glats to keep their
dainty little kid-gloved hands busy, they
would sit in a front seat in the parquette
circle, or conspicuously in the parlor or
hall, whispering and smiling and staring,
and staring and smiling and whispering,
until they became objects of pity for those
whom they sought vainly to impress.
Young men who showed little or no gal
lantry toward ladies in ordinary years could
not expect to be remembered by them on
occasions of social amusement in Leap
Tear; and if acy of these thought different
ly they would probably be frequently disap
pointed. This, in substance, were the
views expressed and they will probably
find many endorsements, among Isdies as
well as gentlemen who believe in social
amusement and in a proper distribution of
the responsibilities of refined social inter
course in which lies the strength of civilized
