Editor Gazette: "Facts are
chiels that winna ding and dinna
bo disputed." Robert Uurns, tne
poet, Baid so and probably he know
for ho had several hard facts to
contend with in his short but
eventful yot withal merry life. It
is a fact that Murphy, osier & vo.
killed a largo loafer wolf in this
immediato vicinity last week but
Stonewall has taken the Shine (r)
out of Dilworth in recording tha
tight, so for the nonce our side of
the story will bo kept "sub thum
bo." If that is not good Latin let
Stonewall beat it as the Institute
here is not yet flourishing although
the school master is abroad.
Mrs. Hammond, whose husband
died Very suddenly about a yoar
ago, has with her charming lamily
gone to Austin to reside
Dancing and merry parties are
taking placo around hero almost
every evening so that notwith
standing tho very changeable
weathsr there are many enjoyablo
gatherings among both white folks
One fact, or rather what ought to
bo a fact, is that tho Gazette
should have many more subscrib
ers in this district. Your corres
pondent's oyo iB upon a few of tho
most-likely-to-bo and it is quito
possible that within a few days the
mail bag may bo a little heavier
than tor somo timo past.
Dr. Minton is proparing his home
here previous to his final settle
ment with us. He has bought the
store for some time occupied by
Undo Ben Geary and the lumber
is laid down for a culinary and
dormitory addition to the premises.
Probably next weok will Bee the
doctor's shingle hung to the breezo.
Uncle Ben is going to establish his
grocery storo at the cross-roads be
tween hero and Gonzales with a
view to share tho trado with the
"village" of Gonzales and tho "'city"
of Dilworth. Uncle Ben, success
to you and don't forget to sub
scribe to tho Gazette.
A very serious firo occurred
about three miles from town on
Thursday between noon and 1 p.
m. Mr. Gertsche, a renter of Mr.
II. K. Jones', had his corn crib,
shacks of fodder and 250 bushelB
of corn burnt. How the fire origi
nated is a mystery. A strong dry
norther was blowing and it seems
tho pasture grass caught firo first
by some raeans,at present unknown
and beforo it could be put out the
fodder and corn crib caught and
were destroyed. Mr. Jones had
iust built a new dwelling house and
crib and Mr. Gretsche had just
moved his effects and corn from
Fitzgerald's land to tho new pre
mises. Fortunately tho dwelling
houso was saved but it was a nar
row escape and the loss of so much
to any poor farmer is a very heavy
one. It is rumored there is a
movement on foot by his neighbors
and friends to help Mr. GretscUo
in his dire necessity.
Frank says the pecan eater tm
last week's Gazette is not him.
There might be a doubt about it
but in the somnal movements mo
boy keeps repeating; '-This is tlis
last one," just the same as Frank
dots when he is asked to divide.
Mrs. Watts of Victoria, who has
been on a visit to her brother, Mr.
John Bell at Stonewall, took tha
train for Gonzales to visit other
MrB. Bartsch, senior, from Shi
ner has been visiting her Bona hero

Mrs. Mary Foster at Mrs. Bra

for a day or two. She left again
on Saturday to resume her studiex.
The wife of Mr. Frank Bartsch

Mrs. Anna Jones Kennard hao
