Mr. Winter has a natural reputation as
an artist. His portraits are true to life,
real masterly works of art, and he hu
learned better than most men the trade
created by Daguerre, who captured
shadow with a ray of light and imprisoned
it forever. Cairo may well take prido in
tbo fact that an artist of Mr Winter's
talent has concluded to make this city bis
headquarters. He is, too, besides being
muter of bis business, a most estimable

A Mean Man Beats" a Boot Black.
There are mean men in this world, and
one ot tho meanest of the mean is the fel
low whose boots tho poor one-legged boot
black blacked the other day. After tho
work had been done, and a "shine'' put on
the leather that would havo taken the
premium at any boot black's competitive
fair, the fellow paid Booty two two-cent
pieces, liooty, without looking at tho
amount, put it in his pocket. "Give mo my
change," said the Mean Man, and took a
nickle from the cripple. Cripple soon
found out tho mistake, and asked for the
return of his nickle. Mean Man cursed
him. Cripple got Officer Martin. Mean
Man cursed Martin too, but Martin mas
tered the masculine rogue, and produced
him before Brnss. B. has a fine sense of
justice, and, when he had heard the touch
ing truth touching tho transaction, touched
up the Moan Man with a fine of ten dol
lars and filtoen cents. The man'paid the
fine. It is unnecessary to add that that
man camo from Faducab, but Len. Faxon
does not recognize him on tho street.

his wife, made by a slung shot in the hand
of Tom, is the cause of his departure.
Ellen had smiled upon another. Tom's
heart cried aloud for vengeance. He
smote the false one. And he left. Tom
was too hasty. If he had consulted Mr.
Nellls, Mr. N. would probaby have told
