Editor Ban Antonio Light:
Floruville, Auguit 18, iE8j. A Mexi
can lady died here a few day, ago at the ripe
old tge of 99 years.
There is no slock water here except at the
San Antonio lirer, Cibolo and Calavaras
creeks, and no grasi within easy reach of
these streams. Unlets it rains soon cotton
will be cut short.
At the election, on Tuesday, in Kloresville,
Oo.votei were polled; alt except two were for
the amendments entire.
The County Commissioners met this week
and, amorce other business, ordered an
election to be held at the different voting
redacts in this county on Saturday,
the Slh day ol September, l8Sj, to determine
whether the sale of Intoxicating liquors shall
be prohibited or not Vour correspondent
hopes that the cltitens ol Wilson county will
guard well their ptercsts and keep the demon
from their doors. They alsoordered the erec
tion of a $20,000 coutt house, to be made of
btlck, and to be built on the plara near the site
of the foundation of their lale folly.
The new addition to the academy building
It nearing completion and wilt be ready for Ihe
opening of the fait session, beginning Mon
day, September 3, 18S3. The teachers
selected by the Board of Trustees
Professor Lopas, principal, having
charge of the academical department, Mrs.
Lou Warren Intermediate, Miss Ella White
primary. Mrs. Lopas and Miss Llizie Hus
ton have charge ol the musical classes.
our, correspondent spent a few days at
Sutherland Springs for the benefit of health,
and for pleasure. While there visited and
tested all the principal springs and can cer
tainty testify to their mcd!cal qualities, having
derived great benefit from their use, but will
not attempt to describe them, or the pleasures
surrounding camp life, away from the weary
cares and busy scenes of the world, ou
rest undisturbed at night with Dotti
ng save the industrious little mosquito
presenting his little bill. We think If the
citizens of-Sulherland Springs and vicinity
would arouse from their Kip Van Winkle
slumbers that they would find that it is not
absolutely necessary to have a court house
and jail In order to make their town improve.
There Is plenty of material to build up a good
sited town and draw capital there, If they
could only arouse energy enough to utilize tt,
and not allow the failure to get the county scar
to forever throw around them the black pall of
disappointed hope and a crushed
ambition. There Is one citizen he
it to his credit, who Is alive to his Interests.
Mr. J. S. Cox, who has recently removed his
gin asd mill up into town, and remodeled the
same, now has a good substantia! building
and is fitting It at great expense with new first
class machinery. lie says it is his purpose to
continue improving it until he is owner of the
best gin and mill In West Texas. We notice
the grading of the west bank of the Cibolo,
near the town, which Is under the supervision
of Mr. Cox. This w ill be of lasting benefit to
the town, as this was a dangerous steep cross
ing. Some time ago our Ccunty Commis
sioners appropriated $ico towards this enter
prise. We think If some good man would
open a hotel at the town he would supply a
great want, as nuny are compelled to return
home, not being able to get board and lodg
ing, as some did who came from your city
while we were there. The town Is located
with pleasant surroundings, with plenty of
wells ol pure free stone water, procured at a
depth of 12 to 30 feet. Adios.

A natlent who was sufferinr? from a severe
