The Jonesboro Gazette is mistaken
when it cays "Cairo is again in dangsr
from the annually recurring floods." Cairo
is not in danger any more than Jonesboro
is, not a b't. While Jonesboro may be
upon a hill, comparatively speaking, Cairo
ia surrounded by hills the tops which
never yet have been reached by floods. At
the lowest point our hills stsnd six feet
above the river, and at the highest, nine
feet. The river is now eight or ten miles
wide just below here and a foot of water at
Cincinnati would not make an inch here.

not forego the pleuures and profits of an

given by the merchants of the small towns

it is firmly believed, will have the effect of

not remember the insults heaped upon them
by the representative piper of the ill-fated
town, believing that the people ef Paducah
were not responsible for the insults, nor in
sympathy with the author of them. The
people of Cairo leal kindly towarda the

by the treatment accorded the many unfor
