We wish we could say the same for

A special from Sherman, Texas,
says:*'W. P. Grccnlow, one of the
wealthies and most prominent citi
zens of that place committed suicide
last night by taking morphine. The
cause is said to be criminal intimacy
between his wifo and Rev. Conrad
llaney, a noted and eloquent minis
ter." This is only one of the many
sad occurcnces of that nature which
arc daily happening. It shows the
utter and shameful depravity of those
from whom we should only expect to
see virtue in the highest and holiest
forms. Who can be trusted.
If any persons in this community
think that they can muzzle the Dem
ocrat by abusing us they arc mista
ken. We came here to publish an
outspoken Democratic paper, and
that we intend to do, no matter who
it pleases or displeases. From the
support wn have received we feel as
sured that the people are with us in
our clforl to give them a paper worthy
of their confidence and patronage.
We care nothing about the opposition
of a few sore-head, ofllee-seeking
Democrats and their Radical allies.
We hew straight to the line let the
chips fall where they may.
Ax "eminent physician" gives it
as a professional opinion that swear
ing never was good for a sore finger.
It never cured the rheumatism nor
helped draw a prize in a lottery. It
is not recommended for liver com
plaint. It is not sure against light
ning, sewing machine agent, nor any
of the ills which beset people through
life. Almost any experienced jour
nalist will tell you that there is no oc
casion for swearing outside of a news
paper oilier, where it is useful in
proof reading and indispensably ne
cessary in getting forms to press.

Snow! snow! oh, the beautiful
snow! The largest fall of snow
known in this county for twenty years
fell on Wednesday last. Beginning
about ten o'clock in the morning ii
continued with more or less severity
throughnut the day. Scow flakes ns
lorgc as a fifty cent piece were com
mon during the storm, and every
thing was covered with a sheet of
snow two or three inches deep. It
was a beautiful sight. The young
men and juveniles indulged in an old
fashioned snow balling to their heart's
content. Every unfortunate individ
ual who came in range was treated
to a shower of snow balls. Some got
mad and others took it good natured
ly. It made no difference to the
snow baliers, howevor, as they were
bent on fun, and that they had.
It is not often that we venture to
lecture a fellow pilgrim on life's high
way on his shortcomings, but really
when we see a brother going so far
astray as the editor of the Times
went last week, wc must be pardoned
for warning him of the error of his
course, and giving him a little broth
erly advice. Now, brother, in the
first place, never attempt to take a
thorn out of your neighbor's toe while
there is a mote in your eye, because
it makes you cut a very ridiculous
figure in the eyes of the community,
and, sc2ond, never do you say any
thing about mortgages again, because
the chances are that if it were not for
that little instrument Bolivcr holds
you would not be enjoying the luxury
of a country editor's life, but would
be nothing more than a plain village
It is estimated that tho amount ofA

A postal regulation has been in
force now for two months which is
not well known among business men,
or it would bo more generally used.
We refer to the fact that statements,

statements which aic made out by
wholesale and retail dealers, each
month can be mailed for one cent but
no writing other than the legitimate

On Tuesday night last a burglai
made a successful entrance into the
dwelling of Mrs. John Glover, cornel
of Coming and St. John streets, and
carried oil' several articles of clothing
and jewelry belonging to Dr. 1$. F
Muckcnfass and Elliott (Jlover. The
entrance was made thiough the par
lor window opening on the piazza
and the inner door being unlocked
admitted the thief to the bed rooms.
The thief was evidently frightened ofi
as he left severnl articles in the par
lor where he hail carried them from
other parts of the house. Tfiis is the
second robbery of the same nature,
and perhaps by the same rogues,
that has occurred in our town during
the last few months, which admon
ishes our citizens to keep nil their
doors and windows securely fastened,
and our police to bo on tho lookout,
not only on Main-street but the back
streets of the town. These burglars
ought to bo caught and punished.
