The Orange Tribune thinks that since
Texas exhibited nothing at the Louisville ex

Bifoke leaving to rejoin Langtry in Paila

Frankfort, Pa., furnishes this temperance

Correspondents assert that the "Society
of the While Lily" Is fomenting a general
crusade against Christians in China. The
While Lily Is a pure Chinese know-nothing

It hat lodgea in every Chinese hamlet, and its

The maxim that "the opinion of one's
neighbors Is an Index to his character," holda
equally good in a newtpater acnte. The
Kaufman Sun pays the Light the following
compliment 1 "The Light, a neat, well
printed and ably conducted six column dally,
published in the delightful city of San An
tonio, Ihe beauty and jewel ol all Texas citiet,
gives ut the benefit of its rays daily. It it of
Republican proclivities, but It of Ihe decent
and belter character, which Is above slander
ing and vlllifying public men because they are
Democrat!. We love to encoura ge tuch pub
lications." The Chicago Timet observes that "the
piofitt of pugilism are very great. A man
poste.sed of a big act of muscles, 'a long
reach,' and a little science is sure of a fortune
If he properly turns Ihem to account. Sullivan,
the Boston pugilist, hat already become a
man of wealth. Slade, 'the Maori,' another
bruiser, has just been engaged to accompany
'the Boston lad on a pugllUUc tour of the

Says the Waco Examiner : " The Gesrgia
Legislature, In dealing wilh what Is generally
designated at the 'prohibition' question, did
not mince terras or deal in niceties of expres
sion. The law recently adoplcd there it very
much like our local option system here In
Texas. But the Georgia legislator! were de
termined that no ambiguous termi or glittering
generalities should either ensnare the guileless
voter or soothe the coniclence of Ihe man
who bestrides the fence. Ihe Issue is made
plain and emphatic. The ballots are to bear
the laconic inscription, "For Whisky" and
"Against Whisky," and if the latter ballots
sre in the majority, Ihe sale or manufacture of
liquor within the county, cily or village will be
absolutely prohibited. The voter must sail
under plain colon and there Is to be no dodg
ing of the issue. Perhaps this plan may prove
ai qood ai any. At all tventt, Ihe Georgian!
are going to try it awhile."
A New York broker, when aikedwhat
made teats in the Stock Eachacge so valuable,
replied ; "The Exchange has a membership
limited to 1100; it hat an insurance fund of
over $1,000,000; it owns property to the
value of $J 000,000 or $4,000,000, and a
ticket gives its owner a financial Handing on
the slrett that it equivalent to $jo,ooo cr
$40,000 In cash, A member mutt own his
teat clear, you know. lie can't borrow
money on it. And, then, the speculating
public feed the Etchange between $ 10,000,000
and $15,000000 a year in the form of com
missions. . Cut that up among 1100 members
and il will give lo each from $10,000 to
$15, coo. At a matter ol fact thll enormous
rum It divided among between 600 and 700
members. The holders of 400 or ,500 teats
are merchants, bankers and large manufac
turers who do not show their facet on 'change
a hall dozen timet a year, ar.d who seldom
do any Iradicg on Ihe fiVr."
A correspondent furnishes the Light with
Ihe following not generally known particulars
regarding the relations of the Mexican Presi
dent: The wife of the President of Mexico was
recently studying medicine In Chicago. She
It a plucky Utile lady, and a brainy one, and
it it said that Gontaletowet to her more than
to any one else, even himself, the fact that he
is President of "our sister" republic. And It
It laid, ton, that hit ill treatment of her will
hasten hit plunge Into obtcurity. Before her
marriage Mrt, Gonralet wat a Mitt Monta
con, Ihe daughter of a prominent citizen of
Oaxacaand ex member of Ihe Mexican Con
gress. She married when but 15. It wat a
veritable love match. She first saw Gonzales,
then but a Colonel In a regiment of cavalry, at
a promenade and became smitten with his
martial bearing. Her mother strongly opposed
the union but at last consented Then came
insurrections and Gonzales' rise to military
distinction. He wat at his best in war. In
peace, so passionate was his nature, his name
was always involved in some scandal.
But under the control df his wife he advanced
at rapidly In the ranks of diplomacy as in
battle and he soon became noted as one of
the progressive patty. Ills wife saved his
life twice, both timet during the French in
tervention. Once when lie wat a prisoner
in the hands of the French, Mrs. Gonzales,
though but three days a mother, rede horse
back 15 miles to an adjacent hacienda, gather
ed about her a little band of patriots and her
self at the head charged the enemy and
rescued her husband. At another time his
troops rebelled and sought his life. As they
appeared at the door of his house his wile re
ceived them, carbine in hand, and held them
at bay till Gonzales had made an escape.
After the war Gonzales fell into bad habits,
and five years ago his amourt had become
to shocking his wife could bear with him no
longer. She left' him, and in the City of
Mexico, where they had been living, and
only a short distance from the presidential
palace the rented a little house, on which she
hung the sign : "Mrs. Gonzales, Fashion
able Dressmaking." Society was scandalized.
Efforts to have her close her shop were made
by her friends, but were ineffectual. Finally,
however, she acceeded to the request of her
father and returned home. Since then she has
not lived with Gonzales. About a year ago
she went to Chicago and took board on On
tario, near State street, with a family she had
known in Mexico. Soon afterwards she be
gan att:rdlng the Woman's Medical college.
She was an apt pupil and diligent, and when
her class graduated last Match the carried
off the principal honors. A few days subse
quently the left for Oaxaco. To a friend who
taw her recently the tald the would nurse Gon
zales if he became dangerously ill, but would
never again sustain marital relation with him.
She is 37 years of age and the mother of three
children. Her husband's course regarding
her hat lost him the friendship of ihe most In
fluential leaders of hit parly and it it probable
that after Ihe expiration of his official term he
will never again hold a governmental position.
Though some of the potvaliant editors of the
Republic declare over their twords that Gon
tales shall have a second term he stands no
more show than the most insignificant ol
themselves. Even had not his injudicious
policy with regard to the church and his bad
treatment of his wife effected his political
death, a certain little document In the posses
session of Dr. Ccrda of Villaldama would a
paper containing a written agreement that
Diaz, Trevino and others thall use their In
fluence to tecure the election of Gonzslet to
the Presidency, and that alter Gonzales' term
ofeffice he thall do all within his power to
again place Diaz in the chair of state. The
writer hat not teen that document, but to
many prominent Mexicans have tpokan of it
In such an authoritative macnerthat there can
be no doubt of lit exlttence. There appear!
to be tuch a thing at retributive justice, after
all, particularly for Pretldent Gonzalet.
