Was It Sutcldo.
One of Mr. J. V. Riggins' chlidrcn
on getting up this morning and uoing
out in the yard ran back excitedly into
the house exclaiming, "Grandpa, come
out here, there's a horse setting up
like a doc." On following the ex
cited boy the horse was found with
his forefeet high off the ground, his
neck in the fork of a peach tree and
the animal stone dead, choked to
death. The horse, w hich had been
ailing.it was supposed, with galloping
consumption, had for several days
shown signs of despondency that it
it had been remarked upon frequently
as of something human in his looks.
There was nothing in the tree to cause
a horse to climb it, and it seemed as
il the animal intentionally had reared
up to its full height, placed its neck in
the high forks of the tree and delib
erately committed suicide. There is
hardly any other way to explain it.
Prof. "Wallace's Case.
Tho wandering profossor has boon
found, and with his wlfo, brother and
fathor-ln-law is now in Jackson, Miss.,
awaiting to got sufficiently recovorod
to travol back to Toxas. Through tho

that placo to dipt. Hall, lato Thursday

this nows to Mr. J. K. Street and Mrs.
Wallaeo thoy dtsired at once that
Capt. Hall notify tho Shrovoport chief
to start a man In pursuit of tho wan
derer, but Capt. Hall suggested that
porhaps it would bo hotter for them
to go in person and this suggestion
was at onco adopted, Mr. Streot, Mrs.
Wallaeo and a brothor of tho pro
fessor leaving hero Thursday. A tol
egram from Jackson, Mississippi, re

nows of tho discovery of Prof. Wallaeo
at Clinton, a small town below Jack
son. Ho was takon to Jackson whero
ho is now under the tender care of his
wifoand lolativos. What promptod
this strango conduct is not known
but it Is attributed to his mind being
affected by long and painful illness.
It is understood that tho professor

A Sad Death.
Mr. and Mrs. Sam Sanger mourn the
loss of their youngest son, Eli Sanger,
who died at i o'ciock this morning,
after a short illness. In their sad
bereavement the sorrowing parents
will have the cordial sympathy of the
entire community. Death is at all
times an unwelcome visitor, but when
he speeds his unerring shaft at one so
young, so promising, how much more
unwelcome is his sombre presence.
Eli was a bright, intelligent and prom
ising boy, and his loving parents be'd
bright hopes of his youth and man
hood; but death had put his seal upon
him and ere but little more than eight
years of his young life had been told
the grim rider of the Pale Horse claim
ed him as his own. The funeral will
take place at ten o'clock to-morrow
morning lrom the family residence, on
Washington street. Notice will be
found elsewhere. The extensive es
tablishment of Sanger Brothers was
closed all day on account of the death
of little Eli. Mr. Philip Sanger, of
Dallas, will come down to attend the

Waco has two largo comotories.
Thoro might boa third ono added If

In ono spot and giavestoucs erected
ovor thorn. It would mako a good
slcd gravoyard, too. Waco Is not
only a graveyard of now Bp.ipors but
It has that roputatlou and whether
tho fact and tho reputation is a do
slrablo thing foraeity, ovciy onomust
boajudgofor himself, tho object of
this tn tlolo being to point out causes
lather than spceulato on results. The
writor is ablo to do this correctly,
having been conversant with nows
papor history slnco Waco was a town
of 7000, and to do it fairly, not boing
dependent on nowspapor work for a
living. What Is tho reason why
daily nowspapors cannot flourish In
Waco us well as In other Texas cities?
WHAT IS NOT TIIK CAUSE.
It Is tho stylo to attrlbuto tho fail
ure of tho dallies to bad manngomout.
This Is not correct. Thoro never was
a hotter or a hotter managed papor
than tho Waco Tolophono, and yot It
died for lack of support. At soveral
times tho Examiner was a good paper
and woll mauaged and yot during
thoso periods It was not a bit bettor
patronised than whon under indlli'er
on t management. Othor casos might
bo cited to tho samo purpose. Then
what aro tho causes? First

MEN WHO DON'T ADVERTISE.
A very large number of business
men and linns in this city, and men
who have mado big fortunes hero
novoradvertiso in tho dailies, or if
thoy do occasionally, their advertise
ment is done as a bone, "Iveu to a beg
gar, and sometimes not so graciously.
Wo aro talking facts and can verify
what is said by facts, figures and files
of nowspapers. Tho lack of adver
tising from this class, a class which
does advortlso lu other cities, is tho
chief causo of tho death of Waco nows
papors. WILDCAT ADVERTISING.
Take tho low ratos of advertising
and tho largo uumbor of ricli business
which never advertise and to thorn
must bo added a third causo, a profer-
once on tho part of a great number of
small firms for wildcat advertising
over advertising in tho daily papers.
If ono will look at tho Jim Crow
schomes, tolophono cards, hotel cards,
whirlagigs and other advertising
schomes ho will soo business names
all over them which never appear in
tho dailies and tho loss of this class is
n serious injury to the dally papers.
tV consldorablo number of business
men mako advertising a mattor of
fooling. They advortiso whou busi
ness is good and thoy feel good, just
out of puro "food naturo and
uot from any particular faith in
advertising per sc, and whilo that
advertising is acceptable, it is not
such as koops up nowspapers w hose
expenses nro heavy and continuous.
Low rates of advertising, tho largo
numbor of weathy businesses which
uover advortiso, tho largo oxtont of
wild cat advertising to tho neglect of
dailies, and spasmodic advertising,
which, In tho host opinion of tho writer
have beon fatal to daily newspapers
in Waco, and which aro still In actlvo
operation and probably with tho
same continued eflect. That nanors
havo lived at all is duo to tho grand.
