For a while yestordsy forenoon tho
Ohio seemed like a stream of boiling water
emitting thick clouds of steam which en
veloped boats nesrly to the top of tho chim

the river as far as tho eye could see, but
disappeared toward evening.

-Attorney-General McCartney holds that
"there is legal prohibition of the sale of li
quor within two miles of any incorporated
city, town or village, and that within this
belt around each corporation neither the
corporate authorities nor county boards can
license the sale of liquor, but that it must
be held sacred to temperance."
Ice began running in the Ohio river
here about 10 o'clock yesterday morning;
but not heavy enough to necessitate the re
rnoval of boats lying in the harbor. It is
believed by river men thtt if the weather
continues cold through to-day the Ohio
will be closed at Ctseyville, where the river
is narrow and obstructed by bars.
Several frozen noses, ears and toes were
reported yestordsy. Capt. James Good, su
perintendent of tbo Anchor Line company,
had his ears troten while walking from The

They shot at the animal, but the ball re
fused to turn the corner of the house at the
right time and failed to hit its, intended
msrk. The animal proved to be a large
dog with a collar around his neck, snd was
tskenlnbythe watchmen. It is believed
to be tho New Foundland dogstrsyed
from the hunting party the day before.
The msyor issued an order to tho
night police force last night to seek shelter
for all tramps found wandering about the
streets, in order that none might freeze to
death. Up to 10:30 o'clock Officers Ms
hsnny, Boughner and Cain had "picked
up" about twenty and "boused them"
by glowing stoves in the engine houses and
depots for the night.
The lowest point reached by the mer
cury at the signal office was 16 degrees be
low zero about 8 o'clock a. m. Thermome
ters in other parts of the city stood as fol
lows,t,when lowest, earlier in the morning:

5 or more degrees below zero steadily all
day and mark this, tbo longest and severest
cold spell Cairo has bad as far back as its
old inhabitants can remember.
Mr. W. F. Pitcher has concluded to
leave Cairo and seek his fortune in St.
Louis or elsewhere. He is one of the land
marks ot Uairo, wnom it would grieve
many - to lose permanently as a fellow-
citizen. He is a good penman, a thorough
book-keeper and active in spite of his
years. Inere is no question but that be
will do well wherever he may go, and that
he may do so will be the wish of his many
friends here. He intends to start for St.
Louis in a week or ten days. Misses Fan
nie snd Lydia Pitcher will remain here.
Two frame buildings on Fourth street,
near the oil works, were destroyed by fire
about 11 o'clock yesterday morning. Both
were occupied by colored people who man
aged to save all their personal effects. Tho
fire originated in the upper story of tho
one belonging to W. T. Scott and others,
and communicated quickly to the other
which was a one-story shanty belonging to
Mr. H. A. Hannon. The former was in
sured for $000 in the Wells & Kerth agency;
it was valued at $800. The latter was esti
mated to have beenworth abou t$4.35 and
was not insured. The extreme cold inter
fered much with the work ot tho engines.
The Farmer and Fruit Grower, Anns,
ssys: "From all accounts, there is every
reason to believe tho coming berry crop
will bo an enormously large one, of which
the strawberry will, as usual, make up fully
three-fourths of the amount marketed. Ev
ery section and every neighborhood reports
sn increase of land devoted to small fruits.
As this increase becomes known, there is
a feeling of uneasiness experienced by some
of the fruit growers who fear the business
ill be overdone. This same alarm has
bsen felt before and oftime, but has proved
entirely unnecessary. The vast growing
west has been found capable ot disposing
of all its fruit products, and to the advan
tage of the careful grower. Those who
raise good fruit need feel no anxiety."
Engines of every description bad to
battle! against the cold during vesterday,
and while some of them were compelled
to stop entirely, all of them were more or
less seriously interfered with. The engine
of Messrs. Wood & Bennets's corn meal
mills could not run yesterday because all
the water pipes froze up tight and could not
be thawed out. The supply pipe to Tbi
Bulletin engine also froze up and water
had to be catried into the boiler by hand.
Trains on all the roads were late and those
that come in nearly all had hob-tail trains
because ice on the track prevented them
from pulling tneir usual loads. The local
accommodation on the Wabash did not
come in at all, and the Short line wss sever
al hours late.
-It seems that, in spite of the frequent
efforts of the Cairo press to thoroughly post
its contemporaries in neighboring cities as
to what the so-called "danger line" of the
Ohio river at Cairo is, there are some who
persist in believing that the river, when it
reaches that line here, is about to run over
our levees and submerge the city. Under
this impresaioa the warning of Gen. Hazen,
that the river would reach "the danger
line" here, has called forth expressions of
apprehension for Cairo's safety from sev
eral quarters. "The danger line," so-called,
we would impress firmly upon our neigh
bors'and others, is where the river leaves
its banks and floods the bottom lands in
Missouri and Kentucky. When the river
reaches this line it marks forty feet on the
government gauge on the levee and stands
THIRTEEN FEET PERPENDICULAR BELOW the
tops of our levees where they are low
1st, and fifteen feet below the tops of tho
levees where they are highest. The rivers
have never reached the top of our present
Isvses snd probably never will.
Our "devil" says the red sun sets can
have nothing whatever to do with the proa
ont cold weather. Ho would like to see
bis rivals in prognostication business
oxplsin how in tho thunder sny meteoric
substsnce rendered red-hot by friction
with our atmosphere, can cause cold. Ho
lays the real causa of this cold is primarily
tho escape of too much hest from tho bow
els of the earth, by means of volcanoes in
Java and California and Washington ter
ritory. As to the sun sets hs says, if the
red sun seta in winter cause or indicate the
approach of cold weather, wbr do not red
I tun sets in summer on hot nights do like
wise. Ho is certain that rod sun sets are
due to some foreign substsnce falling into
the air, and that meteors constantly falling
into our atmosphere help to cause tho bril
liancy. Our "devil" la a good 'on and
we'll go our pile on him against
any reputable progoostlcator in the coun
try, in a fair open contest; but wo eball
positively decline to match him against any
local up-start who will send forth doubtful
croaks over occasionally from under the
cast-off garments of a defunct old mercury
