ceived here. Tho Information comes from
a Texnn who hnd been prospecting In Mex
ico, and who loarnrd tho particulars from
an oyo-witness of the butchery, nnd who
afterward assisted In burying the liodles.
Mr. llolllns said that on one ot the largo
ranches about twenty miles to southward
ot Lampasas thero lived for years past ,1
quiet, well-to-do Mexican nniiied Antonio
Voider, whoso family consisted of a wlfo
suit five children, the eldest of tho children
lining nged ten yenrs, tho youngest two.
The wife, ntiout thirty years of nge, had
been subject to epileptic tits and spoils of
melancholy of long duration. In tho past
few months sho hnd exhibited many marks
I f temporary Insnnl'y, and when In such
II - n'al nberratlon Invariably sought to do
violence to her llttlo ones. On Wednesday
tho allllcted woman was attacked with ono
ot these fits of unusual soverlty. When
sho bad recovered from tho spasm her hus
band went lo work to herd n flock of sheop
belonging 011 tho much. Ho had been
goiui but n short while when his wlfo nmse
from her rouch, nml taking n buteher-kulfe,
which had lieencnrelessly left within reach,
at onco begnu tho work of des'ructlon. Her
oldest child was the first to fall brneaththe
wild mother's heavy blows, tho victim's
head being almost severed from Iho body,
Ih quick succession sho slew tho other chil
dren, hacking and stabbing them In tht
most barbarous and sickening manner.
There thoy luy scattered over the room, tire
bleeding nnd mangled corpses, Thnfrnntia
mother soeined to view them with grim sat
isfaction, filling tho air with wild nnd weird
pxelnmatlons. Suddenly taking n parting
look at tho dead boforo her, sho plunged
the knlfo Into her own heart, reeled ton
corner In the mom and fell dead. During
all the tlmo this fearful tragedy was being
enacted eyo-vvltnesscs wero powerless to
prevent It. The husband was som ap
prised, nnd returning to tho house ho found
his wife and children weltering In their
gore, Tlielaiucutntlons ot the poor man
w ero ptMablo In the extreme. He could not
bo consoled. In duo tlmo neighbors came
and nrrnngemeiits wore mnilo to bury Hie
dend. Six graves wen d.ig. Tho next
morning the parish priest nrrlved, nud His

Tlio conclusions of tho "Uncommer
'nl Traveler" nro suhstmtlallv to tho
licet that tho civility of hotel servants
varies almost constantly In inverse pro
portion with thu llxotl charge for attend
ance, hccatlso tlio more the guest has to
pay tho hotel-Keeper tiro loss the servant
expects for himself; nnd that the nholl
lion ot gratuities would soon put an
end to tho Mimll remaining stock of civ
ility and attention which may ho drawn
on by thoso who think it worth paying
for. Let us pass from theory to fact.
In no London club worth tho name Is
any servant permitted to receive so
much as ono farthing In tho way of
a gratuity. A club-servant w ho nccotit
ett a "tip" would ho Instantly tils
mtssedt whllo tho member who, hy of
fering tho bribe, had violated tho regu
lations of the club, would he liable to
tho severest censure from Iho eommltt-o.
Vet In every chili not only civility nnd
nttoutlon, hut obsequious deference to
tlio minutest wihes of tlio members aro
Iho Invnrablo rule, tho servant know
ing full well that tho slightest trans
gression of ills duty in this respect
would lead to Ids Immediate discharge,
while no other club secretary would en
gage a servant who nan oeen dismissed
for Incivility. It Is plain that a hotel
keeper has no disciplinary power over
Ids guests to thu evtent of f'jrhlddlng
them his houso because they hnvo foeti
tho servants, hut It Is not aiittally clear
why a landlord should not let Ills' ser
vants know Hint If a complaint for rude
ness nml incivility were made good
against them thoy would ho sent nbout
their business on tho spot.
What Is, In line, the materlnl dtfVer
cneo between a hnlel-waiter nnd nn as
sistant In a shop? Wo tell ho"i what
commod ly wo want, nml they . ng it
to us. Is the labor in la) ing tlio break
fast table and bringing us our tea nml
toast more arduous than In banding
down a heavy roll of silk or cloth,
measuring, cutting and making it up
Into a neat parcel? Hut tines Iho shop,
assistant over expect n gratuity? lie,
wo over dream ot giving lilm one? Ho
Is, as a rule, a pattern of civility nnd
attention; nnd for the constant display
of such qualities tlio customer is In
debted, lirsl, to tho assistants own
knowledge of whnt Is right anil proper,
and iiovl, to his equally strong convic
tion that wero bo to lie rude, ami weru
tho customer to complain of his rude
Hois, his employer would very speed ly
turn him out of doom. At the same
time it is undeniable that tho custom of
giving optional fues to hotel servants is
nn Immemorial ono; that It Is intimately
Dounii up with tiiuoiiinstoi our social
customs; that it is, In short, "largen"
a modern survival of tlio very ancient
practice of Hinging n p!eco of money to

hand, we turn to tho United Slates, wo

Cachcmero pattern bauds are quite in
favor, and nro likely to ho morn so oi
tho autumn advances. Most of thet
imported Indian trimmings, with dree
fabrics en 'tV, aro of sufficiently high
price to add considerable value to the
possession of a toilet of this kind. The ,
rich Oriental trimmings are employed,.,;
only on dark dresses or those of neu
t ml tint.
Humor reaches America, that the meet
fashionable ladies oi Parts are going
from ono extreme to the other in the
flatter of the shape of the sleeve, and
that tho very close-fitting style will, in
a measure nt least, give way to a 'full
tiowlng one. The "pagoda'' aml'''aB
gel" sleeves aro to bo worn, as well as
the arllstio "Vandyke" ami leg-o'-inut-ton
shapes. 1'nlTed sleeves are to be In
varied styln, end sleeve-distendero and
"aim-Improvers" are to be worn with
sleeves cut close up the shoulder and a
puff at tho elbow
Where to go and what to wear In a
great measure hang together, and the
choice of dresses Just now must deiiemf
entirely on the places where tha eotuluf;,
wet-k are to be spent, and the statsi
ot the weather. As regards the latter,
wo aro told lo "prepare for the sewjonj"
but lfw we aro to do this is a question,
when ono moment tliere blows a pene
trating.north wind that chills the, very
blood in one's veins, and tho nest oome
a Juno breeze, calling again for dis
carded muslins, linen dusters audsoda
water.
Ono of tho newest ot the fashionable:
corsages for autumn wear Is made ol
