From Col. T. L. Rich the News has
received a formula for the prevention
and cure of smallpox which it appears
has proven to be all that could be de
sired. It is avery cheap and simple
formula, a bottleful costing ouly about
2C> cents, lt consists of sulphato ol'
zino, one graiu; powered digitalis, ouo
grain, teaspoonful of sugar and four
ounces of water. Teaspoonful to bo
taken every hour.
Col. Hitch says that last winter Mr.
Boyoe Bell, a well known resident of
Steolo Creek township, seven miles
south of this city, had eleven persons
on his placo (a negro worn n and ten
children) cured of virulent, malignant
smallpox with thia remedy in a few
days. It was also takeu by all tho
others on the place afterwards, who
never contracted tho disease.
Col. Bitch is responsible for its in
troduction here. It came originally
from a Paris medical journal.

1 The Devil Arter Sam Jones,
' Navasota, Texas, Jan. 26.-In re
! ply to your telegram of inquiry: Thi
Devil and tho Dutch of Dallas are oi
the war path ?md out gunning for any
j body that's against their personal lib
erty and Turn Verein rights.
I was lecturing in Turner hall (it be
. longs to the Turn Verein Bociety) ii
' Dallas last Friday night, as one of thi
* attractions of the People's Lyoeun
' Course. Turner Hall has a beer garder
' around it and a saloon under ft, andi
! is considered bombproof agaust an]
and all oomers on prohibition as tem
perance and had so announced to th
t manager of the lecture course.
But my friends know I am by tem
5 perance like a Baptist is by water.
1 always bring it in before lam done
f So, I advised ibo youDg men that i
1 they wanted io set there and sta<
' there they must be sober and pure
i At this the boorah began behind th?
? scenes on the stage. The Dutoh wen
, mad and jabbering in Dutch and oe
! casionally saying, "We won't stand
! dat," etc. Then the lights were turn
' cd oil and a Dutchman came out oi
i thc stage and said, "you was a liar.'
Then some one turned on the fool
lights and thc great weli-roundci
, Dutchman began a hasty retreat, or it
Q-'ier words the fizzing beer kej
bounced off the platform. Then th<
lights were turned on and I proceeded
to tho close of the lecture without fur
, ther disturbance. The incident had
stirred Dallas profoundly and I re
turned Sunduy. Friends rented the
' opera house. I was announced to
speak to men only. When in compa
ny with friends I walked up to the
opera house thc doors were locked and
lights out and a crowd of ton or fifteen
thousand men in the streets ?round.
I mounted ajcarriage and the crowd
' became quiet and I spoke for more
than an hour to as orderly a crowd as
I ever preached to in a church.
When I had been speaking nearly
an hour, Mayor Cobble came to me
?nd said: "Mr. Jones, the opera
! house is now open audfuiiof men and
at your service." I replied that I had
10,000 listening to me and would not
quit that job to go into thc opera house
to talk to 1,800 people. Tho Turn
Verein society has, by its president,
sat down on thc Dutchman that turn
ed off the lights andjmade the racket,
and Dallas is profoundly stirred and
desirous that the world shall know
that Sam Jones shall have a hearing
when ever he comes that way.-Kev.
