Mr. HiNDMCKS teems to be the great
American itraddler, judging from hli recent
trip to Iowa, where he talked free trade or
protection just at the occasion required.
Governor. Butler ia reported as saying
that the Iowa Republicans will find out to
their cost that the quarrels of the Democrats
are like the quarrels of cats the. more they
quarrel the more cats there will be.
The new postal notes appear to be finding
favor with the public the more they are used.
They certainly are a great convenience. One
serious objection to Ihera Is the wsy they are
printed, which Is of a very poor character.
The Waco Examiner tells ot a man who
recently arrived In that city with $500,000 to
invest In Texas lands, but becoming Intimi
dated at the fence cutting troubles prevaleni
in other sections, he left with a big diigut,
and did not invest a dollar.
The decision of a London police Judge,
who tried a man forthrowinganinfantthrough

and to lour weeks for throwing the child out.
A woman was recently arrested In Kansas

Mahoni makes Virginia Republicans stand
and deliver on a scheme, In which he asks
them to join the Virginia association and pay
dues of $2 50 a month. Those who are com
petent to judge, say that he Is violating the
spirit of the law, and not the letter, and that
he cannot legally be held to account for bis
political black-mall. Mahone ought to be re
pudiated. The Fostthaster General in his recent order
against the Louisiana State lottery, Dauphin
and others, appears to have pot on his war
paint to stay, and gives every indication that
he will paralyse the business of the lottery be
fore he Is through with It. The fact that the
Slate laws outside of Louisiana and Kentucky
look upon all lottery schemes as open swin
dles, makes his position much more consis
tent. "Men of keen business perception," says
the Two Laredot, "realise the fact
that money paid to the press in their own
homes always finds Its way back into first
hands. Every good citizen acknowledges it
to Le their duty to give the local press an
earnest support. It Is the most powerful
lever existing that Is used in laboring for the
public Interest. Every Issue ot your home
paper is an effective stroke towards building
up the community. Show us a town that Is
flourishing and we will shew you a place
where the local press is appreciated and gen
The Dellville Times says t "A Dallas lady
writes from the Louisville exposition to a
home psper 'We saw nothing to remind us
of Texas except a wagon from Dallas ana a
wildcat from Abilene.' This Is directly at
tributable to the moubaclc and parsimonious
policy of a constitution that prohibits any
direct or indirect effort to procure Immigra
tion. It is a singular condition, but one that
exists, that 99 out of 1 00 Texans are opposed
to this nan enterprising and niggardly pru
dence, while the fundamental law of the State
fastens It like an Incubus on ihe body politic."
" I once asked General Urant," said Gen
eral Sherman at a dinner given h'm In San
Francisco, "why he always started to talk
horse when any one tried to engage him in a
political conversation, and he replied t 'Well,
I don't care about talking politics, and t have
got to lay something, so I choose horse for a
hobby, and I stick to that. It does as welt as
anything for the occasion. I advise you (0
get a hobby, loo. It comes handy.' I have
ever since deliberated," continued General
Sherman, " what to choose for a hobby,' that
I might have something to talk about. But I
haven't found it yet. I am a toldier and have
tried to be a lawyer, but neither profession has
furnished me with the desired hobby."
The Morgan Argonaut, discoursipg on ad
vertising, says 1 "The majority of the busi
ness men in Texas are being awakened 'lo
their interest.and It will not be many years be
fore Texas will be up, If not ahead, of the
Eastern States In the way of liberal advertis
ing. Advertising Is a science ; it is to be
learned and taught by the people. It Is to be
learned by the people the same as they learned
their a, b, c'a. After it is learned and com
prehended it is lo be practiced, if jou would
be perfect. Gentle reader, and more es
pecially the business man, commence now and
enter this greatest school of success, adver
tising. Advance a few dollars as tuition feet,
and see if )ou do not reap its benefits."
The oldest town In Texas, If not in the
United Stales, is Ysleta, situated on the Rio
Grande, 12 miles below El Paso, the county
seat of El Paso county, having a population
of 2500 souls. The Houston Tost says: "It
it a molt Interesting place and much Df this
interest is derived from Its great antiquity and
the peculiarity of Its people, Its architecture,
its agriculture and its products. It Is by fir
the oldest town In Texas and there can be lit
tle doubt that It is the oldest In the United
States. It Is said to be a well established his
torical fact that a Spanish explorer or mili
tary adventurer named Coronado visited the
place in 1540 and found it then a populous
and prosperous civilised Indian community.
He was Immediately followed by the Francis
can friars, who erected a church and estab
lithed schools the same year. These facts
are said to be just as easily proved as any
other facts in history. Now, if Ysleta was a
populous town In 1540, It follows, without a
doubt, that It was a town before that time,
and it may have been a town even hundreda
of years before. The same race of people e
iils there to-day just as pure blooded, for the
most part, as when Coronado found them 343
years ago, engaged in the same agricultural
and mechanical pursuits as their forefathers in
The following account Is given of the
"Black Flags," who are now giving the
French so much trouble In Tonquln : "When
the Taeplng rebelhon was crushed, after ex
tending across China to within sight of the
capital, those of the rebels in the Chinese
province of Kwaogoi were, In 1S65, expelled
thence and driven across the border into Ton
quin. Iheir fighting force at this lime was
about 5000. In Tonquin they found a secure
refuge in the mountains, which make duwn
into the plain on cither aide of the Song-Kol
river, where, despite their expulsion from their
native country, they show a diipotltion to act
in disobedience to the Chinese authorities.
The Anamese troops sent against the inter
lopers were repeatedly defeated, and by 1868
they had possession nf the entire right bank of
the Song-Koi, above Hanoi. With the aid
of the Chinese Viceroy they were alterward
expelled from the low lying country and con
fined to Ihe upper course of the river. About
the same time they were weakened by division.
Those in favor of an adventurous lile retained
The Black Flag' as their ensign; the rest,
anxious for the safety of their families, and
witling to come to terms with the authorities,
both of Anam and China, adopted 'The Yel
low Flag as their token. Those under the
Black Flag were the worst characters, being
dangerous marauders. Their leader, Lin
Youen Fon, had gained himself a name in
Kwangol as a freebooter before the settlement
The Victoria Advocate, In quoting the let
ter of District Attorney A. I. Evans.oublished
in the Light a few days ago, regarding post
roads and United States mail routes, says:
"The position taken by Mr. Evans that any
read 'the people use, or a cow trail, or even
a path over the prairie,' becomes a postal
road, aa soon as the United States carries a
mail along It. and, therefore, a public road,
even if the County court has never declared it
a public highway, la probably a strained con
struction ol the postal law. If he be correct,
dtliens are liable by the act of an official
located at Washington and acting simply in a
clerical capacity, to be put to great expense
whenever the posioffice department deter
mines upon increasing mall facilities in Ihe
districts included In the pasture system of this
vicinity As the Postmaster General has no
judicial powers, he can have no judicial duty
to perform, which would be the case If the
doctrine of appropriating al will sufficient land
for mail routes along obscure cow trails and
unfrequented paths across prairies is correct,
as claimed by Mr, Evans. His position is
based upon the doctrine of eminent domain
with Ihe fatal defect of falling to note that
property can not be taken for public use
without compensation, the adjustment of
which Is a judicial act, and therefore outside
the power ol the Postmaster General. As the
question Involved is of interest to pasture
owners, it is to be hoped that the matter will
finally find its way Into the courts for an
