"What about Culberson's strength

'This county is practically solid for
Mills. A fow prefer Culberson bo
oauso he was a prohibitionist, but
thoso who saw Dr. Moore and other
pro Democrats voting for the Clark

Culberson is only us;d as a cats-paw
by ono of Hogg's lieutenants hoping
to tie up tho legislature and save
Chilton. Unfortunately for Culbor

"What about Mills sulking and re

THE FOX HUNTERS.
Convention at tho Court House
Large Attondauce and Much
The fox hunters of tho oity held a
meeting at tbo court house yesterday
evening to discuss tho future opera
tions of tho association. A lively
time was had, and among othor im
portant topios disoussed was that of
the species of animal whioh has so
often, of lato, bafllod tho fleotcst of
tho various konnels of tbo mombors,
and by its unearthly howls bid defi
ance to the hounds and struok terror
to the denizens of the neighborhood
of tho Bosque, as well as to tho sports
men themselves. The zoological vo
oabluary was exhausted in many ef
forts to placo him, but his identity is,
as yet, only a conjecture. Companies
have bcon formed and all tho hounds
in the country havo been oollootod to
gether and his jungles invaded, with
the hope of capturing him, and upon
ono of suoh raids, when after a long
and exciting ohaso, Jim Bagloy's
largo goat was captured it waB thought
that the mv story had beon solved, bat
lo and behold, when tho horns were
blown the same answoring howls woro
heard, showing that the beast was still
at large and oloso at hand. The blasts
of the huntsmen's horns brought the
hounds all togcthor and the hunters
tremblingly, with weapons in hand,
placed them upon tho fresh trail at
the point where they had last heard
tho howls. A fruitless ohaso till day
light proved tho vanity of their efforts,
and the hunters, dry, hungry and fa
tigued, blow off the dogs and wendod
their way homo, to the city.
It was roported at tho meeting that
Ike Namor and the Soroggins, oolored,
had Buooooded in finally capturing
tho ferocrous boast an aocount of
whioh was published on the fifth page
of yostorday's News, and that it
proved to bo an opossum, but this re
port was treated with tho disbelief
and contempt it deserved, and the
discussion oontinued. It was finally
deoidod that, in all the kennols of
Contral Texas no hound could be
found ilcot onough to oapturo the
namoless beast, and that in ordor ac
complish this a pack must bo bred es
pecially for tho purposo, by a oross be
tween "Eliza Jane" and a fine speci
men of tho "Walker" breed the
property of Brown, Harrison & Co.
