It'woulil be Information to know the names of the towns and why they "had. not as good a right to come into existence and be bulk up as Cairo. I know of one town that has been practically wipetl off tao map, Birds Point. That left, not much for ferrymen to grow rich upon. Still two good electric launches conter.de 1 for all there was in it by constantly plying across to Cairo. Another town, WicklilTe, is having a desperate struggle to keep in existence. Cairo has a large number of her merchants and while I know they love Ken tucky best, the - mighty - dollar;,' that just will circulate In 'i Cairo , is a mighty attraction but. there Is, le33 to ferry. . .. The Three States is a splendid boat costing big money, with nracticnlly nothing to do. The Mississippi, per sists in getting out of her banks sev eral months in the year and as sci ence has not progressed so far that teams and folks can wa'k on water and it Is too cold to swim and tir' railroads usually are high and dry what traffic and freight there Is goes by rail. So it gets to Cairo just the same. : ' , A company of public spirited men own the Three States and have not declared a dividend in twenty-five years and the half Isn't told. I like thrift in merchants, competition and don't mind even "the tricks in trade;" but to be downright greedy ho about it? To my certain knowledge they, I say they, I know of several from word of mouth who prefer a so-called "live town" from trade from disreputab'e sources, rather than a clean town, and trade a little less brisk. The merchants are doing very well. What is really needed is a wall city, a morally healthy city everything elseN we most assuredly have; ever since she began she has gone steadily forward, never boomed just a regular growth, and there '( no possibility of that ever meeting with a permanent check. If every citizen would interest himself in tht moral support, as is given to the financial then no possible defamatior could come from outsiders and thr entire city would feel an uplift whicl never can be felt from simply sordii things.

" Off Editor of The Bulletin: I am glad some live city topics are being print ed In The Bulletin, In the Issue of March 3rd '"Better Ferry Servic and the statement Is made that "while we have been drifting along with petty local troubles- two towns have been built up .with business that should rightfully belong to Gen. Dickson was a great favorite with the girls at the news stand while at the Halliday. They had s joke over a ten cent piece. When the general first arrived he bought n paper and didn't wait for tho change So one of the young ladies asked the bell boy to take tho ten cents "tc that-little boy in gray standing ovei there." The dime reached the Gen eral as did also the story. His ideh tir.y, however, did not frighten the girls and the memorable dime was kept busy passing to and fro from the General's hands to those of the news stand girls until it became question which one was to win out. When the General was overtaken with illness and precipitately r moved he was in possession of the 10c piece; but a letter received yester day shows that Tils memory Is good that his health is Improving and that he is determined to have the last word. The letter is as follows: Springfield, March 1, 1910 About the first sane thought that came to me upon my coming out from under the Influence of the anaesthetic following my operation at the hos pital last Friday night, was that owed the de'ightful , and charming ladies who presided over the dis seminating of newspapers, candy puzzle tricks, etc., at the Halliday House, the sum of ten cents, whico said sum of ten cents is herewith Inclosed.

Former Chief of Police Mahoney who has been brought prominently forward for re-appointment to that position when" Chief Egan resigns to take the wharfniastership, said yes terday that he had no knowledge that he was being ponsldered In connec tion with the office, having had no conversation with the mayor, on the Cairo subject. He said, however, that his services were at the command of th people of Cairo, having Resided here nearly all his life and feeling a deer interest In the city's welfare. Mr Mahoney was chief of police sixteen years, being promoted to that posl tion by Mayor Thos. W. Halliday. Although Mr. Mahoney says he- knows nothing about it, the "tip" that he was being considered for the place came to The Bulletin very straight when the first announcement of the proposed change was made, and it seemed to meet with general public favor.

WELL-EQUIPPED INSTITUTION IS CONDUCTED BY UNCLE 8AM. Landonla Dees a Little Telephoning for Her Mistress, and Gets a Bit Flustrated During the Un usual Operation. ... Landonla, the young colored "help," was not long from the farm In Vir ginia.; She was very observant, how ever, and not at all disposed cither to display or admit ignorance or unfamil iarity, so when her new mistress asked "her if sfie could call up Mrs Floyd- Jones on the telephone so that she the miatress might talk with her. she said, "Yes, niaym,' with promptness and confidence. This was the au ricular evidence that she attempted to do so: Clapping the receiver to her ear, she began immediately; "Hello, hello, hel "Huh? Wha's dat? "Number? Number what? "Doan' wan' no number. Ma missus jes' wan's ter talk ter Mrs. Floyd Jones. Huh? "Wha's her number, wha? Say, doan' yo' ast mo no fool questions.

Call Thursday or Friday, 3d and 4th ItiL-t. Third floor, Farrow Flats. Men Do the Same Thlna. ...,.. Here's a twentieth century enlc which will appeal to the heart of man: A dog sat In the midnight chill and howled at the beaming moon; his knowledge of music was strictly nil aud his voice was out of tune. And he howled and howled as the hours went by, while dodging the bricks we threw, till the moon was low In the western sky, and his vcice was split in two. And there wasn't a thing at which to howl over which a pup should weep, and the course of that dog was wrong and foul, for people were wild to sleep. There are plenty of men like that blamed fool bound, who yell when there's nothing wrong, disturbing the country with sense less sound the pessimist's doleful song.

Happiness. Love, self-renunciation this la real happiness, which does not depend up on chance. Tolstoi 1IH Washington. One of many indica tions that the United States govern ment Is a model employer, aud does much to look after tho comfort and general wel fare of the many thousand men and women on Its pay roils, Is to be found In the thor oughly up-to-date hospital It main tains at the gov eminent printing Office. During the regular sessions of con gress, when there is plenty of work at the big printery, which Is the largest In the world, nearly 5,000 men and women are employed thee, Through illness and accident some of this great number of employes are In capacitated for work each day, and It was to-render these persons Imme diate and gratuitous assistance that the. hospital ,waa, established In 1906 under the administration of Public Printer Oscar Rlcketts. . , ; The official designation of the hos pital is the emergency-room of the government printing office. It' Is one section of the division of sanitation It is purposely located in that part of the building most accessible from all sections, on the fourth .'floor front, midway between two elevators. It" Is connected by telephone with each room of the building, and In an emer gency call Its combination reclining chair and stretcher can be rushed tc any part of the office without delay. The hospital is not a great distance from cither the top or bottom floors The hospital chair, like a small am bulance, has the right of way In the corridors and elevators and can be seen frequently being wheeled quickly and silently in and out of the eleva tors and along the corridors to differ ent parts of the office, going to the assistance of those who are taken 111 or have ben Injured through an ac cident. The hospital occupies one room about forty feet long and sixteen feet wide. Each end of the room Is fitted up In duplicate and so arranged that It can be curtained off as a separate ward. The furniture and equipment are complete, but compact, arranged somewhat like the hospital on board a large ocean liner. There Is a bed at each end of the room, and also stationary baths basins and washst.ands, and a ward robe for the patient, Ttok floor is of marble mosaic, and the wainscoting and walls are of white enamel, so that they can be kept in a thoroughly clean and sanitary condition. As the room faces the east, there is plenty of Bunlight in the morning, 'and. also rather an extended view. In general appointments and location the hos pital is as pleasant a room as the pa tients could possibly wish for In which to recuperate from any slight illness or accident. Modern equipment of all kinds has been provided, and many who have visited the emergency room declare that it compares favorably, with that in any hospital in or near Washing ton. At each end of the room there is an electric ' instrument sterilizer, and in the center a larger sterilizer for dressings. There are duplicate medicine chests, well, stocked with all the usual remedies known to modern medicine, and an Instrument case containing all the instruments neces sary for emergency or flrst-ald work. There is also an oxygen and nitrous oxide generator, a receptacle contain ing salt solution, an operating table, electric warming pads and every other contrivance that goes to make the equipment of a modern hospital complete.- , That the emergency room supplies a real want in the government print ing office Is shown by the large num ber of' cases treated each year. Dur lvg 1908 there were 1,180 patients treated; 544 were surgical cases and 638 medical. Four persons died In the hospital last year of heart disease or apoplexy, and there have been two deaths from apoplexy this year. As a .rule there are more women treated than men, especially for ill ness, but accidents are confined al most exclusively to men, as they have all the heavy and more dangerous work to do. There are many cases where women come or are brought to the emergency room faint or exhausted, and yet return to their work In an hour or two completely relieved by some simple and Immediate treat' nient. Among the kinds of cases treated for both men and women are fracture or dislocation of limbs, Infected wounds, burns, strains, foreign bodies In the eye, epileptic fits, heat ex haustion, acute Indigestion and faint ing. Four cases of rtomalne poison ing were treated last year. There have been frequent cases of poisoning due to overdoses of head ache powders or cough medicine, taken by empleyes at home when they felt too 111 to report for duty. Lead colic Is a rather frequent cause of trouble with those who work In the composing rooms and inhale the graphite fumes of the molten metal uned with the printing machines. There have also been numerous cases of ftlcctrlc shock. 1IMS1H A LINIMENT FOR EXTERNAL USE.
