Iran Into tho city of tho Irish pat
ronymic, Denls-on, tho other day.
Tho border city of the northern boun
dary looked lively and prosperous. I
Sundayed there, and at llie morn
ing service of Jho Epifecooal
church listened t music as sweet as
over pealed forth from Texas choir. It
was divine, swelling up to mingle with
the angelic anthems and forming a
"circuit" to transmit tho magnlticcut

earth knows.no sweeter joy; 'twill All
eternity.
In tlio evening that prince of good
fellows, A. W. Watson, who bosses
electricity at the telephone central
olilce, placed a carriage
at my service and
we took in tlio town. Dcnlson is even
more extensive than I thought. It
covers a largo area and is spreading al
most as rapidly as the "young giant."
An improvement company Is engaged
in opening up streets and
avenues in tho timber two
miles from the square, and tho lots are
being eagerly gobbled up by the capi
talist and others who desire to adorn a
comfortable home, giving expression
to the confidence In the future of Dcn
lson -felt by its citizens. 'Tis tho peo
ple that make tho town, and enough of
me rigiu hort coum uioomauesert into
a perpetual oasis.
My peregrinations next landed me
at
HONIIAM,
The beautiful city of beauties. Who
could paiB by Uonham V
Not I. Here the niinuto
hand of progress continues to revolve
around tlie disc of time. A brick busi
ness block in course of construction on
the street leading to the depot Is evi
dence that lids solid city is
forging fiwt the links'--of pros
perity. And she deserves it; if I
hadn't exhausted my vocabulary of
adjectives hi praise of the open-handed
hospitality of her people, their indus
try ami consequent; prosperity
heretofore they tiro topics
on which I iight debate
at length. Tho theme is an inex
haustible one.
Mr. James, tho livery stable man,
had just received a handsome new car
riage, and of course to initiate it
two such experts as my
friend Oass, of the
Advocate and "this yero scribbler"
could not have been accumulated for
miles. We can, always do up such
jobs as that to perfection, and our bor
vices in this lino may at any time be
secured for tho asking. Circling
around tlio city, we seemed to be in
magnificent park. Tho diives ar.
beautiful, lined with elegant resided"
cesand lovely parks adoined as only a
hap) y combination of tasto and
wealth can produce. Thoughts
stiuggio for utterance. The scene was
just exquisitely, entrancingly lovely.
I regretted to part but shadow suc
ceeds sunshine always. There is a
very largo cavity in tho very
small blood propeller of at
least one btraggling Bohemian for
beautiful Eonhiiiii and her kind citi
zens. VAIUS
is pulling for tho persimmons
pretty persistently. Everything
betokens prosperity heie. Oo
ing up lrom the depot one
notices a mammoth brick under con
struction, which coves almost, if not
entirely, a whole block. It Is de
signed for a cotton warehouso and
will cost something near $20,
0J0. This is a i splendid
cotton market and there are many
wealthy firms who deal In tho fleecy
staple. They have combined to erect
tills largo building and will 'use
it in concert. The people aro
still, sanguine of obtaining the
St. Louis and San Francisco, and If so
jnavearono would have to travel to
tho Fort to find its rival in business
matters. It is a stylish little city,
i tubs itself the "Athens of Texus."
id id is justly entitled to Its
rei mtation for beauty, social excellence
ana' business superiority. May it

From Texatkana I drifted down to
DALHYSl'lUNOd.
All along the line friends couusoled
me to pay tho celebrated resort a vis t.
I possessed uu appetite as voraciotm tin
a hyena, an ostrleh-llko digestion and
tlio hardihood of a Mexican burro,
yet resigning myself to their
advice, emigrated there to view
It "with mine own eyes and not an
other's." To say that tho trip was de
lightful does not express my feelings,
even in a limited degree. Dalby Is one
of the cosiest, prettiest and most peas
ant places in which tills rambler has
has ever pitched his lent. It Is peo
pled with a host of invalids,
overworked businessmen and pleasure
seekers, numbering about tWeiity-llve
at present, who onuuiiiigle in a de
lightfully sociable manner, and con
trlveto enjoy themselves in the thous
and aud one ways incident to such a
rustic retreat. They are certainly a
Jolly set. As 1 wilto
strains of sweetest music
come stealing over the night air and
merry couples join in the mystic
mazes of tho dance atlhe pavilion near
the hotel, which is a popular place of
nightly resort. There are many other
menus of amiiricmeiit to suit the diver
sified tastes of the conglomerated classes
of visitors. Tho shades of the tall aud
stately fiees within the enclosure
afford pleasant rambling andthis
Hub rom an excellent trysting place
for Cupid's cooing and wooing. Dear
hunting does u l conclude with this,
however, as the Immediate neighbor
hood abounds with another spe
cies. My bravery only
arises to tho emergency of
going on tho trail of tho latter, and
"thereby hangs a tale." I won't en
large, but merely state that u'e went,
we saw, but the deer conquered. J
can't refrain from declaring that I
just know I would have killed him
if I had been favored with
half a chanco, but the
darling deers are always frightfully
annoying, and to use a homely com
parison aro almost as great gymnastic
wondeis as tho famed Irishman's Ilea.
Excellent lishlng adds to tho
sporting attractions' of Dlby. The
largo lakes near-- Sulphur, about
three or four miles distant, are just
groaning in their agony of an over
burdened population. The. spring,
which constitutes the principal attrac
tion, bubles up in a little valley, near
a small rivulet, of which it Is the
source of supply. The water has a
peculiar reddish cast a perfect simile
of pure bourbon. However, it is only
dangerous in appearance in taste it is
as harmless as ncw-nmde cider. This
quality of color may prove n bonanza
to hen-pecked husbands who would in
dulge in the luxury of amorningdram.
Just import some of this water for your
health and, presto, the rest Is as easy
as elevating u bottle nt an angle of
thirty degrees. Tins water Ja very
cold and not at all distasteful, though
with a marked universal llayor.
An accurate analysis hns never
yet been made, though seveial nhysi
ciuns have applied Usts and discov
ered iron, sulphur and magnesia. Its
health-giving qualities aro attested by
these as well as by hundreds whoso
sufferings have hero been alluvialed.
Talking with several who have
thus experienced telief from
tlie grim and gaunt
ravuges of disease, 1 was almost temp
ted to believe that tlio miraculous
"Pool of Siloam" had been trans
planted to Dalby, and was not yet for
saken by its guardian angel, orel&e
that punacea for which Ponce do Leon
searched so unremittingly had
at last been revealed to those
who scoff at his credulity. Some of
the niostreniurkoblo cures ever known
have been effected here diseases baf
lllng the physiclaus' skill and laugh
ing at science, becoming perfectly
pliable when brought under
the elfects of this invigor
ating tonic of nature. These
cases ore not numbered by the score,
but by tho hundreds, and compiise
some of tho most prominent people in
Texas. Among those indebted to
Dalby for that most precious boon of
health, are Col. O'Nell of Cass
county, Mi's. Maxey. tho
mother of Texas' able sena
tor, JudgoxFrost, Cnrsicanu; Judge
Estcs, Texarkana; A. M. Tayloi, mem
ber oftho legislature from Jted Itiver
county: Dr. Steel of Lamar; Dr. Johns
of Red Itlvcr; Governor Hubbard,
Tyler: and many more, whoso names
complete would consume column
after column of fthe Uazititk. The
diseases for which these water. are es
neciallv adapted are indigestion, dys-
pensia. kidney complaints, and the)
myriad of troubles which tiriso there
funn. Indeed a prominent physician
has remarked that ninety-nine
out .of ono hundred persons
in Texas avIio aro (differing from ill
health would oe either entirely cured,
or greatly benefitted by substituting
tho waters of Dalby for the noxious
potions with which thoy nauseato
their stomachs, and tho QAzniTTi;
reporter Avithcssed many lin
ing and hearty proofs of this as
KTtlon, who Join In a chorus'bf grate
ful praises, to their relief. I was as
sured by persons who haye been visit
ing this place for many years 'that no
ono aflllctcd as stated lias over yet
failed to experience ii radical nnd bene
ficial change. Tho waters of Dalby are
as soft as tlie dow-drops o f heaven aud
a person can slake his thirst with out
rageous quantities and not experience
any unpleasant results in (he least. It
Is heavily charged with gas, and dur
ing a thunder storm bolls and
spews like a tea kettle.
Mr. J. V. Farrrler, tho proprietor of
this interesting resort is oueof the
most genial aud hospitable gentlemen
Inhabiting this summer clime.
Ho endeavors to . Jtiaku ono
feel every inch n prince
ond this their castle, provides splendid
accommodations for his guests, sets
most excellent faro before ahcui, and
to crown his Virtues, owns n .splendid
pack ot hound, whoso braying chorus
when on the troll surpasses
Beethoven's grandest symphonies.
I have visited hero 'Squire Dalby, tho
oldest perhaps, and one of tho most In
teresting characters in this country,
aftf r whom these famous springs aro
called. He Is past seventy-seven
years of ago (and by way of paren
thesis has a large family, the youngest
of whom, a bright,, handsomo llttlo
fellow has only had two birth-day cakes
baked in his honor.) The 'squire
bears well the ravuges of time,
yet the snow-whit:1 Jocks and
furrowed blow bespeak tho decay
which can only bo postponed, not es
caped. He Is still, however, compara
tively lithe aud active, works With the
regularity of his youth, and is a
lively and entertaining con
versationalist, replete Mvlth rcniluls
censes of tho past. He was the earli
est settler in tills section, having laud
ed at his present abode in 1830. From
him I learned that Dalby
Springs first began to attract
attention In 1842, and oven
in that pristine and healthy 'age, en
tire families often camped here to ro
ouperato from tho invigorating foun
tain. Even before tlie advent of
the white man, tho medicinal
virtues of tho spring were
appieclated by the Indians,
who pitched their tents here only to
fold them when forced back by their
pale faced enemies.
I am more than charmed with Dal
by springs. Uctweeii the Transconti
nental and Texas and St. Louis
railways, ten miles from De
lta lb on the one hand, and eight miles
from Harrcttou the other, it should be
tho Saratoga of Texas, as it well-nigh
Is already. 13. G. S.
A FIRE ALAltM. TJ3LI3UKAPH
Is What Id Xocileil In Fort AVorth Wliut u
1'riictlcul Mutt ltrii to Say About It.
While Mr. M.C. Orten,so well-known
in connection wlili the water works
compauy,.was In tho city a day or
twoslticc, n Gaziot'i: repiesentutive
held a conversation with him, when
lio expressed views that will not only
lie found of Interest, but aro sugges
tive of reform and improvement t tint
is much needed in Fort Worth. Tlie
convocation turned upon the admira
ble system of water works so recently
inauguiated here, when Mr. Orten re
marked that although the system is so
fine and complete a one, yet
in the event of a lire, property
in tho immediate neighborhood
was more than likely to etifler,
"Why Is this, Mr. Orten?"
"Simply, because the- engineer
would in all probability not bo notified
in time fn pufon n flro pressure."
"Tho city Is connected with the
pumping station by telephone."
"That is very true, but more than
half the time tlie wire is down or for
some other reason, it is impossible to
use It. Tho wire is extended from
tree to tree ond very often the connec
tion is broken by limbs falling upon it.
Why not very long since, this
very thing happened and it
was several hours before it was put In
order. Now this evil must bo reme
died. It is absolutely necessary that
tho engineer should bo notified im
mediately upon the breaking out of a
fire, so that ho may have time to put
on flro pressure, aud attach another
pump, before the plugs are opened.
Ordinarily wo only keep one pump in
use, although wo have four, and this
one is kept going at its fullest capacity
all the time to sunply tho city with
water. Uesldcs the city,' we supply
every railroad running in here, and to
supply all of these demands, wo pump
out 800,000 gallons every day.
"What will bo tho eonseuuences if
the engineer is not notified V"
"Why, the valves are liable to blown
out before he can atlaoh another pump.
This happened tho other day. Ono
pump was going and someone opened
two or threo plugs, and1 the upshot
was there, were two valves; blown off."
"What would you guggtstas a rem
edy?" "The city should Inauguiato a" sys
tem of lire alarm telegraph, lly means
of this they could always and Instantly
glvo notice to the engineer, and a
fire could always bo located exactly
by the lire boxes, which aro placed in
different parts of tho city. This sys
tem is used In all large cities, and uu-
Ltll something of tho kind is put in use
hero, tho water works win no or small
use in the event of a flru.. Now there
are some of tho members- of tho flro
department who think that wo are
not willing to give them water to
practice. This is a gteat mistake. Wo
are not only willing but anxious to
glvo them tho water, ond have them
pi notice so that their volunteer
efforts may provo of some avail, when
called intouctlve requisition. All that
wo obj(ct lo Is tho Judlscihnliiftto way
of opening tho water plugs, becauso wo
do not want our machinery blown all
to pieces, when notice can so easily be

"What will tho newspapers do now

Tho people heie were In a

before wo could get any definite news.
We could only hope to receive reliablo
Information from New Orleans. All
tho up-river boats were closely
watched, but no news came. One day
a friend came ipto tho olilce and said
lie had iust como up from New Or

a full account of tho battle, aud told of
tho glorious victory of our troops.
My friend ii'sj lnfoimed mo that
he had the only paper on

the paper. Wo thought we were safe
enough to risk holding it until morn

Tho Old r.ndln of tlin SpriiRiiu Finally

Providence, R. I., July 20. The'
great estate of thoBpragues is rapidly
slipping away from tlio bankrupt
family, and ere long the last parcel will
be disposed of at auction, Tho sales
yesterday wero of more than passing
interest. The old ladles of the family,
having been stripped of their mills,
print works, farms, stock, and securi
ties, were sold out of house
and homo. Tho estales, "which
join each other on Young
Ot chard Avchue, aro finely situated
aud are claimed to bo worth about
$100,000 each, taking into considera
tion the money laid out by llio
Spragues lp beautifying tho place. Tlio
llrst house Hold was ilmt of the aged
Fanny Sprague, mother of Amasa and
William ripraguo, who was hi gulled
Into signing away her Aquidncek.
stock ipider guarantee ilmt It should
not bo toughed". Tho bids on this
propei ty ran up slowly to$28,100 where
they stopped, and lha Union Company,
otherwise known as tho posl-ofllco
syndicate, gobbled unofher vul
uiililo portion of Iho trust
(stale. Tlio Mnry fipmguo estuto was,
secuied bv . laines C. iteddon lor SiM.-

wero purchased by tlio Union Com
pany tor .'!!) cents per toot, There aro
iio.JOO squiii o loci in Ibis lot unci It is
believed to bo worth inoio than twlco
the sum obtained. Tho irardeu lot ad
joining went for tho low sum of 21
coins per loot. Trustee i;iiuiu-o earn
estly endeavored to get the people to
inoica-o tholr bids that a fair return
on tho valuation of the estates might
bo obtained, but without avail.
It was lumored befoio theno sales
that an arrangement would bo made
whereby thool ludhu would be as
sured of Hheller during tho rest of
their lives, but the icport Is not au
thentlcululas yet. Tlio Union Com
pany, in purchasing the Fanny
SpruKiic mansion, have obtained nog-
H(sion of tho place whoro WiilJuiila
Qprngiitinnd wife reside, and liieywHij;
iinooiiuicoiy ir,y io uusi mo e.-goyv
ernor from the place. Of all tho
Bpragiies, Col. Amnen Bprague ulouo
retains his mansion. JJIs young wife
was fortunate enough to buy the estate
worth $100,000 for $135,000.
William Hprague Is yet to bo legally,
ejected from Ctnonchct. Amasa lost
his case, and the Union Company aro
to take possession of the mansion at
Cranston. It is doubtful whether tho
old ladles, in tho event of their eject;
iiient from either of f ho estatessold to-'
day, would accept of ony hospitality
at tlio bunds of those who have so re
lenth&sly pursued tho family on ac
count of Governor Snr.iguo's mst po
litical recoid. There wl'l prob
ably bo moro law-suits be
