Telli Another Anecdote
Tho cool southern breeze was blow
ing the hair from about tho temples of
the old man yesterday when the re
porter climbed Into the tower. The
old fellow was gazing out into space
with tho expression of a ship-wrecked
mariner locking for a friendly sail.
"What's going ouV" said the re
porter. The old man shook his head and
said: "1 know nothing that would in
terest the readers of the GAJiKrfK.
The races will soon bo opened here,
and I suppose the city will temporarily
shalto oil tho apathetic slumber vt
midsummer and be lively for a day or
so. Occasionally I hear the echoes of
society notes and see signs of activity
in feudal circles, but they ate sporadic
cases, and everything teems to bo
drifting upon the tide of time with
scarcely a ripple oil tho surface of
events. Our new aldermen are wear
ing their blushing honors with tho
grace and dignity of a Mephistophole,;
the constitution h amended; tliestrects
are beginning to be an ornament to
tho city; the poor mules on tho street
railway near tneir regular quoio o
murks of tho drivers' whips; thejsa-loon-kecpers
all attend church on Sun
day; business is good in all depart
ments mid branches of trade; J have
visitors by night and by day in tlte
tower; each day is a prototype of tho
morrow, and as Dante lias it, every
thing moves along in
Thn dread monotony of crttRhingcjilm."
'Whit news doc your orchestra
bring from the outside world?" asked
The tower man looked out up'ii tho
clouds of dust flying in all directions
and said: "It brings news of a severe
drouth from all quaiters; the soil of
one state is blown over the boundaries
of others in clouds of dust. We want
rain, a long, continuous rain, or our
great staple will be short in the crops
The old man brushed the dust from
a window sill and continued:
"Texas needs just now what an old
negro preacher prayed for during a se
vere ciroiuu in ueorgia some years ago.
This old darkey had attended the
chinch of hU white brethren one Sun
day morning during a reason of severe
dry weather, and heard the minister
pray for 'sweet refreshing showers, for
tho relief of sufleringhumanity and in
token of tho great mercy of God.'
That evening, when opening services
In bis own church, ho prayed long
and earnestly for rain, and concluded
In these words: 'Oh .Lord, send us
rain, open the rlveis of Heaven and
send us lots of rain, not the sweet re
freshing f-hower that the white man
prays for, but a regular old sock
ilolayliiff rulli-waxhcr.' "
