An Important Health Question.
As will be seen by reference to
proceedings of the Board of Health
that body reccommends a public
sewer with which the Gull, Virginia
House, Cambridge Manor, South
Georgia College, and other
public and* private buildings on
•the West side of Broad st., may make
connections. They might, also have
included thp Stuart, as in that direc
tion lies the natural drainage from
that hotel. The jail will also be on
that side of the dividing ridge and it,
too, will have to have a sewer connec
tion. A common sewer has been
provided for the Piney Woods, Mitch
ell, Masury, and other public and
private houses on the East side of the
town. Now let the town give the
hotels and others, similar accommoda
tions on the West side of Broad st.
They are entitled to it. It is a physi
cal impossibility to drain or sewer the
West side ol Broad st., to the East
side of the town. Nature has put a
natural barrier in the way. The first
section of the main sewer can be put
in, and then, as in the care of the
main sewer on the East, the work can
be gradually done, so as to divide
up the expense.
Bob Evans, who has hecn spending
the past seven weeks in New York,

To the Honorable County Commissioners
of said State and county:—The undersigned,
your petitioner, respectfully slioweth that he
is a resident of said county in said State,
that he is a farmer, cultivating lands lying
on both sides of the track of the Savannah.
Florida k Western railroad, situated about
one mile nnd n half cast of the town of Cairo.
Said railroad divides the cultivated lands,
nnd your petitioner respectfully slioweth
that most of said land that is in cultivation
lays on the opposite side of said road from
where lie resides; that all of his corn nnd
nearly nil of his cotton is on the opposite
side of the rond from where he resides, and
that lis is iinnliic to get it across the truck
of said railroad company without a crossing,
and Hint lie is now without one. And your
petitioner respectlully asks that you grant
him an order lor a private right of way
across the track of said company, as pro
vided lor by the statute of said State which
is pointed out in the code of said State bi
sections 720, 721, 722, 723, 721 nnd 737, and

It will be seen by reference to the
official report of the Board of county
commissioners, that they have not
yet made a selection tor the jail site,
which was set tor yesterday. Several
of the Board being absent, and the
matter being ot importance, and of
long standing, the members present
deemed it advisable to defer action
until next meeting. Read the report
of the board elsewhere.

A Cutting Affair.
Two negro delivery wagon drivers,
Sam Bunyan and Reuben Wiiiiams, got
into a difficulty near the tesidencc of
Mr. A. C. Brown’s on Dawson street
yesterday morning. One of them, Sam
Bunyan, who drives one of the Pringle
Bro’s delivery wagons, cut Reuben,
who drives Mr. A. C. Brown’s delivery
wagon, with a razor. Mr. Brown,
who happened to be near, separated
the combatants, or the results might
have been more serious. Dr. McIn
tosh was called in and dressed Reu
bens wounds. There was only one
bad cut. Sam had slashed him across
the breast, cutting to the ribs, right
over the immediate region of the
heart. Had the razor slipped in be
tween the ribs, Williams would have
undoubtedly been instantly killed.
Bunyan was lodged in jail under a
warrant charging him with an assault
with intent to murder. He has, by
this time, perhaps, had time to reflect
pn his action.
The new sewer being laid on Jack-
son street was clogged up with clay
by some carelessness in the hands
leaving the end open, when the heavy
rains of the past few days washed the
clay in. An effort was being made
last evening to wash the clay out,
but it did not work satisfactorily, and
it is a serious question, as to the best
way to remedy the trouble. This is
only an early illustration of the difficul
ties in the way of a sewer laid 20 feet
from the surface.
Mon. Alfred Leon, a thorough bar

prepared to wait on permanent or
transient customers, and guarantees
satisfaction in every instance.

The report of the accident on the

the other day, appears to have been
