Mrs. M:Guffy died Sunday morn
ing at tho homo of hor son-lu-law, Mr.
C. P. Savage. Tho funeral took place
yesterday afternoou from tho Metho
dist church and was largely atten
ded. Tho case of B. F. Hamman vs. J.
Conly which was on trial for several
days in the Federal court last woek
terminated In a vordlot for tho defen
dant. The suit is to settle tho title to
a leguo of land in Falls county adja
cent to tho Wootou Wells tract.
A News reporter interviewed on
Saturday a large number of bill col
lectors with the view of ascertaining
the status oi collections on the first of
December. One plain question wai
put to each, viz: How do you find
collections? The following i re the
replies, verbatim et hteralim, as re
ceived from each in their turn:
Pretty fair; small bills easy, large
ones hard. Very slow; every one says
come back on Monday. Very good
so far; hope it will continue sll day.
Nothing extra; nothing to brag on.
Pretty slow. Pretty good; don't ex
pect any thing before next week.
Very dull. Moderate; some stand
offs. Tolerably well. I'm not col
lecting I am only trying to collect.
Very slow; I have always noticed that
when the first Jails on Saturday col
lections are bad. Moderate; nothing
to brag about. Slow and hard. Not
much; very poor. Very good so far,
if it will only continue. Pretty slow.
The reader Irom these replies can
draw his own conclusions as to col
lections this month. They are not
good, but will be better in 1898, when
Waco has fifty factories and fine mac
adamized roads running all over the
county. Then the reporter who asks
the same ouestion of collectors on
the first will get replies something like
the following: Fine. First rate. O. K.
Don't bother me: I am going to the
bank the fifth time, can't stop. Get
anv tand offs? Stand offs what the

The Evening News falls like a re
freshing shower all over the city every
evening. It steals all through the
leading streets and misleading streets
alike. The lawyer peruses it in his
dressing gown and arm-chair in the
beautiful suburbs of Lawyersville; the
carpenter in Carpentcrsville reads its
ads quietly after his day's work is done;
the denizens of Sandtown, of Clabber
alley, of Frenchtovtn and Slabtown,
the high-toned residents of Dickey's
hill and environs peruse it with avidity,
and it carries light and gospel to the
enlightened population of Bell's hill,
while in East Waco people clamor for
its coming. It is not much of a paper,
it is true, but it goes into nearly every
family in the city, and folks like it be
cause it is newsy, pretty and an eve
ning paper, and because its brilliant
advertising editors always have some'
thing dainty and fresh to tell the peo'
pie about. It is a bang-up adver
tising medium and brings shekels into
the money drawers of those who in
vite the people to come and buy of
The Coming Attraction.
The rule is that contemporary life
affords few acceptable themes for the
dramatist. The reason is that con
temporary life lacks novelty, and we
are not entertained by seeing on the
stage the men aud women whom we
see in every day life. But when lrom
tho political and social life of aouun
try and epoch' there spring classes of
people who are the creatures of their
environments, and who are distin
guished from the great ranss by pe
culiarities and idiosyncrasies, who
are limited as to number aud local ub
to space, the prototype of each class
becomes a novelty to the majority of
people. For lu&tance, one Col. Sel
lers or a few Cols. Sellers, full of en
thusiasm for "the old flag and an ap
propriation," may bo met with. The
character is both real and novel, but
its attractiveness is owing to Its nov
elty. This proposition is equally ap
plicable to tho senator Slote of Mr.
Florence. These artists seized upon
the ideas of the author, and by the
application of dramatlo conscientious
ness created two characters as like to
originals as aro Reynold's portraits
to his sitters.
Residents of Washington who were
faraaliar with tho vanities of Ameri
can human nature whloh the civil
war, government contraots, and
speculation doyolopod and produoed,
recognize in these two characters
most faithful pictures of ophomeral
types that have possed oway. Tho
day for Slote andGilflorys is past, but
they once had their day. They are
Interesting historically, socially, and,
I might say, anthropologically. As
presented by Mt. and Mrs. Florence,
those two characters are tit illustra
tions of what wo moan when we talk
of "truth to naturo," of "correct In
terpretation," and uso tho other tech
nical and hide-bound phrases pecu

Alexandre and Extremes.
Passing by Messrs. Lewlne's splen
did establishment on Thanksgiving
Day, I saw two ladles and a child
about four years old just stepping
out. Their dress and appearance
showed wealth, and better still, re
finement. I was struck with the re
mark one of them made; It was this:
"I am real sorry I do not need a new
dress." What a contrast? How many
there are right in Waco, who aro real
sorry that they do need a new dress;
and my thoughts wandered at once
to Father Ryan's peem, whore ho

Are lifted bravely In tho strife
And so thro' ages and thro' lands
Move on tho two extremes of life."
