his nerve and quick action in disposing
of the corn. The doctor denies it; says
that he does not wish to be regarded as a
"Funston of finance" or a "Kaffir Mug."
"The story," says be, "was made out of
whole cloth. There was not a word of
truth in it. My business is pulling teeth,

Texas is aliye with wild gecsc. For
the east three weeks every lines of wild
gees'? have been swinging in and settling
on bay, sea arm and prairie. A cor
respondent describes the scene of tligbt
and alighting as follows :
The vangurd from the north reached
Rockport iu the last week of November,
as il does year after year with unchang
ing regularity. The folks of Ai kausas
county know that winter is coming ouly
when they hear the steady honk-honlc
clanging down from the midnight sky
Within twenty-four hours afterward the
first norther of the season blows its chill
breath over land, and the man who haa
been fishing all summer and fall gets,
down his gun, oilB it and tries the locks.
Once the V-shaped fioek has landed those
behind seem to come in swarms. Twenty
bauds will be seen on the next day, and
two days later the great wild fowl are
everywhere. The southwestern edge of Texas, and
that part of the Mexican coast wiiich lies
east of TuxpaH, arc the winter homes oC
the wild goose. Some of the Hocks go
even farther south, spending the cold
months along Central America, and oc
casionally the Canadian .flyer is to he
found in the northern part of South
America, but the vast bulk of the mi
grating horde puts in December, Janu
ary, and February in the territory in
dicated. The southward flight lasts altt
of six weeks? because some individuals
hardier than others, or less inclined te
oxertion, remain in the north until all
waters are closed. Wild geese are most
numerous in that section after Jan. 1.
By that time all are there and settled
which intend to stay there, aud their
numbers are iaconcelveable- It is not an
usual thing to see an army of from 4,000.
to 5,000 geese upon the prairie, and h
flying to their roosts at night tbe lines
of them are practically continuous. la.
tbe Datokas aud other states of the
Northwest tbe southward flying gangs
feed in the corn and wheat fields, sub
sisting upon such scattered grain as they
are able to find, but when they roach.
Texas they become grass eaters. They
get with tbe grass, of course, some seed-:
but for the most part tbe contents or
their crops are made up wholly of mes
quite and sage blades. A section or
prairie over which ono of these
gaint bands bad fed looks as if it bad
been clipped with a closely set lawn
mower of uneven teeth. The bill of a.
goose will get even nearer to the dirt;
than tbe teeth of a sheep. Grazing:
ground is useless for cattle after sheep
have gone over if, and when tbe Canadian
geese have had their fill sheep pastured,
upon it would starve.
After January 1st, 1000. tbe clubbings
rates of the Semi-Weekly Capital and?
Globe-Republican will be increased to
1.75 a year. From now until January
1st tbe rate will be the same as hereto
fore, 91.50 a year. During tbe month off
December we hope to renew many sub
scriptions at $1.50 a year. The increased
cost of everything that enters into tho
making of a newspaper is the reason for
the advtnce'of 25 cents.
