Dcnison, (Texas) Gazetteer.
The people of Vinita, I. T., are
preparing for a fair this fall. The
crops and fruit of that section of
the Territory were never better.
Slowly but surely are the great
catural resources of the Territory
being developed, and the day is
not far distant when it will be sec
ond to no section of country of this
hemisphere. Tho offi
cers of the Indian Territory have
been making it rcdjbot for whisky
introducers. It is certainly Tery
strange what desperate chances the
introducers will take. The Indian
officers arc all the time on the alert
for offenders of this character and
they are certain in tho execution
and discharge of their duties.

and as it was too quick he grabbed
it about a foot back of its head
when it turned and bit him on bis

his finger open with his knife and
commenced sucking it until he
thought it was all right, and went
to work again. In about an hour
it commenced to hurt him and he
went to Stringtown to get some
thing for it, but could not find any
thing there, then he came here and
found some alcohol on which he
soon became intoxicated. He is all

Walnut river came very near being

The mother supposed the little fel
low was out in tho yard playing
with their large hewfonadland
dog, as was his habit every day, as
he and the dog were very fast
friends, and the mother felt per
fectly at ease as long as the trusty
canine was with him. Sirs. Ren
frew had just finished doing up her
dinner dishes, and had stepped to
the door to call the little boy in
when the dog came "dashing up to
to the house barking furiously, and
when he saw Mrs. R. he turned
and started toward the river bark
ing and looking back at her, as if
to say: "follow me." Mrs. Ren
frew mistrusted that something
was wrong, and ran down to the
river bank a few yards away, and
there to her horror saw her little
boy just sinking in the stream. As
soon as he rose to the surface she
told the dog to "bring him out;"
and the noble animal plunged m
and in a few moments brought the
little fellow safely to shore !and
laid him at his mother's feet, thor
oughly drenched, and badly fright

An exchange gives the following
bit of history in an article on the
Texas fever: Long before Texas
was thought of as a state the dis
ease called Texas fever was known
in this country. It had been de
scribed as bloody murrain, yellow
murrain, dry murrain, distemper,
black water, American cattle
plague, and as acclimating,gastric,
periodic, splenic, Spanish, and la
ter as Texas fever. It is an ex
tremely fatal, virulent, epizootic
disease, communicated by cattle
from the lowlands of the state
washed by the waters of the At
lantic and the Gulf, from Virginia
to. Mexico. Possiblv the perma-

inree weesn ago haj grade bulls
and heifers were unloaded at the
Las Vegas yards for Mr. John
Chisum, of Roswell. The cattle
were from Missouri, and it is
claimed they were shipped in
good, healthy condition. On the
road to this place the cattle con

ties. The stock are affected in the

death puts an end to its sufferings.
Vhen landed here about ten had
died, but before the first twenty
miles were driven ten more were
reduced to hide value. On the
north end of Stoneroad's range so
many of tho animals were blind
and helpless that the drovers
abandoned them and went on emp

meeting showed that out of tho 300

To produce an electric spark, it is
only necessary to warm a sheet of
ordinary paper in front of a good fire
or stove or over a lamp. Upon gr
ing into a dark place and applying
the knuckle to the paper a very
decided spark will start from the
latter, accompanied by a slight
crackling sound. Another plan
is to take two sheets of paper and
interpose a sheet of goldleafbetwcen
them. After electrifying them as
above described, it will bo only
necessary to pass a pencil point in
a zigzag manner over their surface
to cause the appearance thereon of
aluminous flash of considerable
intensity. These experiments,
which are vcrr easy to perform,
may serve to demonstrate the fun
damental rules of static electricity
