It soon de veloped that Gregg caused the notices that he had suicided at Kansas City by drowning in the Missouri river; the news was sent out from Kansas City by himself to western, eastern and Texas papers, among them those at Dallas, lie had formerly been a newspaper reporter, and knew how it. The o Dicers are expected in Dallas with Gregg to-night or to-morrow. He is about fifty years of age, and has .grown-up children In the vicinity of Dallas.

It is understood that the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe desire to get an extension into Texas, probably from the neighbor hood of Kansas, and it is tho jght this visit has some connection with that object. It is also thought the party want to take a trip to Austin and get acquainted with the Texas legisla ture.

Special Agent Corr Lucy, of Austin, arrived here to night from Nashville with Oliver II, Gregg, the absconding embezzler of registered packages, who, while acting as route agent between Dallas and El Paso, surreptitiously misappropriated funds to a very large amount. Gregg is now lodged in the Dallas jail.

It appears Uairston and several friends took supper at a restaurant a few nights ago, and having no money, deposited a check for $350 on the Waco National bank, purporting to be sign ed by W. B. Trice, president of that in stitution. The check was presented for payment to-day, in presence of Trice, who at first said it was genu ine, but on closer scrutiny discovered it was a torgery. 1 lairs ton says tne check was fixed up in a spirit of fun, to impress the variety girls with his immense wealth, and that he foolish ly deposited it for collateral without thinking of the consequences.

In the east ern part of the county is a body of heavily timbered land, interspersed with rirairies. the whole area of prai ries comprising about one-third of the entire county. In the northwestern portion is a section of country divided mto rich creek bottoms and hilly up lands, covered with pine. For estry Bulletin No. I, issued by the United States census bureau, places the amount of merchantable short-leaf pine (pinus mitis) standing in the countv on Mav 31. 1HU. at ' tl.- MJO.OUO feet, board measure, but it is believed the actual amount is largely in excess of these figures. The lead ing varieties of timber, besides pine, are post oak, red oak, pin oak, hickory, walnut, chinquapin oak, bois d'arc, cedar, pecan, elm. cottonwood and hackberry. Much of the timber is large and very valuable, the chinqua pin oaK and bois uarc, ny reason oi their irreat durability and toughnness of fibre, being much esteemed for the manufacture ot wagons and agricul tural implements, IV r which purpose they are largely employed.

Big and Little Caney. and Cut Hand creeks flow southward into Sidphur Fork, and Lower and Little l ine, JJason s and Mill creeks and Pe can bayou now northward in Ited Kiver. Cistern water is .most used for domestic purposes in the prairie section, but in all other portions wells of pure water are obtained at a shal low depth, and springs are quite nu merous. The soil in the Bed River bottoms is a rich alluvial deposit of great depth and fertility; that of the belt of wood land lymg between the itea River bottoms and the main prairie, a gray sanay; that of the prairies, a black waxy lime land; that ot the pine up- lands.generally a dark gray or mulatto; while in the creek bottoms is a light, mellow loam, and on the uplands, be tween the Sulphur Fork and the prai ries, a light sandy, on a clay founda tion. The mean monthly rainfall in inches and hundredths of an inch, for the year 1880, was as follows: Janua ry, 1.25: February, 6.00; March, 4.00; April, 2.25; May, 0.75; June. 6.00; July. 6.50; August, 0.U0; September, 2.25; October, z.OO; .November, b.a(); Decem ber, 1.00.

Total for 1880, 38M inches; for 1881, a year of exceptional and widely extended drouth. 26 U inches. Ordinarily the lands in Red liver bottom produce about three- fourths to a bale of cotton, and from 40 to 60 bushels of corn per acre, and in some seasons the yield exceeds these figures; but for the entire coun ty, one year with another, the yield is from one-third to one-half bale of cot ton, 25 to 30 bushels of corn, 10 to 12 of wheat, 45 of oats, 40 of barley, 150 of sweet potatoes, 100 of Irish, 250 gallons of molasses, 150 of sorghum yrup, 1 to 3 tons of millet, and all egetables common to the latitude are grown in great abundance. Peaches, apples, pears and plums of the choicest aneties and in great perfection are grown in large quantities. Apples of this county equal those raised in any part of the southern states. Grapes, wild and domestic, grow luxuriantly. and strawberries and raspberries do well. Wild land, suitable for farms. is worth from $1 to $5, and improved farms from S3 to $10 per acre, and cul tivated land rents for from $3 to $5, or tor one-third the corn and other crops, and one-fourth the cotton. Or dinary rail fencing costs from $100 to $125 per mile. Pino lumber is worth from io cents to wi, and oak from $1 to $1.25 per hundred at the mills. Bois d'arc hedges, wherever properly area for, have proved successtul. The principal vanetVaPi grass is the sedge, which is found in most parts of the county, but does not afford good winter pasturage, and stock require the run of the fields, small grain pas tures, or more or less feed during that season. Stockraising is almost inva riably combined with agriculture, and there are no large herds. According to the assessment rolls of 1882, there are in the county 5944 horses and mules, 11,624 cattle. 1561 sheep and 11,714 hogs. The latter are easily, and cheaply raised, as they receive but little attention, and live in the forests, on the mast on which they are fattened for slaughter in many seasons, workhorses are worth irom 50 to $70; mules, S60 to $90; oxen, $50 to $60 per yoke; beef retails at 6 to 8 cents; mutton, 10; pork, 8; bacon, 12; corn, 50 to 75 cents per bushel; Hour, $4.50 per hundred. Domestic fowls are raised in large numbers, and large and small game and fish are moderate ly plentiful. l here are m tne county six facto ries of wagons, plows, etc., 18 or 20 steam flouring and grist mills and cot ton gins, 20 steam saw mills and cot ton gins, 20 steam saw mills and a sash and blind factory. On Bason s Mill creek is water power of considerable capacity, which is not, however, em ployed. The Transcontinental branch of the Texas and Pacific railroad runs nearly centrally through the county from east to west, and has five sta tions, Douglass, Walker, Bagwell, liennett and (Jlarksville. The latter, the county seat, is a handsomely built town of about 1500 inhabitants, and an aggregate trade of about $750,000, and is characterized by the intelli gence, hospitality -and social culture of its citizens. The Presbyterian, Baptist, Metho dist, Christian, Roman Catholic and Episcopal denominations, and the colored Baptist and Methodist de nominations, have churches in the county, and religious services are well attended. ree schools are pro vided for scholastic population of 3444, of which the daily average at tendance is i0 per cent. There are also a number of private schools, from the primary to the highest grade, all of which are well sustained. In a number of precincts prohibition of the sale of spirituous liquors has been adopted, under the local option act. and is strictly enforced. The county levies a tax of 45 cents on the $100 value of property, and has no debt. On the river and large streams, m summer and tall, malarial sickness, generally of a mild type, sometimes occurs, but the general health of the county is excellent. This was among the earliest settled portions of the state, a number of families having located on its northern border as early as 1818, and there is much in telligence and refinement among the population, ihe mean temperature in summer is about 80 degrees Fahren heit, and in winter 47 degrees. German and English Salaries. - London Truth. The administration of the German empire is conducted on more econom ical principles than our own. In Eng land 5000 a year is the salary of seven leading cabinet ministers. At Berlin the chancellor of the empire and prime minister receives only 2800, with a house and an additional 1000 a year to keep it in order. The secretary of state's salary is 2500, with a free house. Prince Bismarck's confidential permanent secretary gets 3000 a year. Our ambassador at Paris receives 10,000 a year, and his staff costs nearly 5000 additional; but the (ierman ambassador there gets only 6000. and their representatives in England and Russia receive 7500, which are the highest salaries paid to any public functionaries by the impe rial government, except the governor general of AJsace-Lorraine, who re ceive 9000 a year. We pay our min ister to the Porte 8000 and nearly 5000 pounds for the staff. Germany pays Jtbuuu; at Vienna we pay SOOO, Germany 6000; at Rome we pay 7000, against 5000; at Pekin 6000, against 30U0; at Stockholm 3000, against 2000; at Lisbon 3000, against AiSUU. it seems to me that we ought to be able to do our diplomacy quite as cheaply as Prince UisniarcK. judg ing by results there is plenty or room tor retrenchment m the department as these figures are by no means the end of the public outlay on foreign mimsters.and their habitations. Bergh Calling for Stone Stairs. New York Special in Cincinnati News. Henry Bergh has written a letter to Mr. Esterbrook. of the bureau of buildings, in the course of which he says: "The sole practical difference between the private and public edi fices ot our cities and the powder magazine appears to be that the for mer ignite less rapidly than the latter. As our buildings are now constructed, no citizen can retire at night to his bedroom, be it a Fifth avenue palace or an East side ten ement house, and close his eyes with the assurance that they will not be opened upon a blazing staircase before morning. This ap palling fact has stimulated the inven tive jrenius of numerous artisans to provide movable fire escapes, three of which 1 have in my house, but they would probably prove to be about as available as a material' nre-escape would be to a sinner in another world. Let as have stone staircases, and floors and doors and closets of iron, and in time we can dispense with costly bre departments, tire insurance companies and your own impossible bureau.

Mrs. Emma stillwell, of mur der confession notoriety, who died from consumption on Saturday and was buried on Sunday, near the village of Waterford, four teen miles from here, reiterated up to the last moment of conscious ness her horrible confessions of crime, and could not be persuaded to vary her statements or acknowledge that she had imposed upon the credulity of her friends tor notoriety s sake, if her acknowledgement of crime can not be sustained, it will go down in history as one of the most stupendous instances of self-accusation on record.

Jay's Reform Movement. Atlanta Constitution. J Mr. Jay Gould announces that he stopped the midnight trains on his elevated road, because they are con ducive to late hours and dissipation. He thinks that now the trains have been taken off "the tone of society will be improved." If Mr. Gould is really posing as a reformer, he should hire a tent and buy a circus map. The whole country will nock to his mati nees. The inquiry of Princess Louise as to whether she could safely venture to go to Charleston, South Carolina, without a military escort, and Gen. Sherman's prompt reply that she could go there as safely as into any state in the union, indicate at once the falsity and the effect of the current eastern reports of the state of society in the southern quarter of the union. If persons of the intelligence of the gov ernor of Canada have been misled on this subject is it strange that the mass of immigrants, who get their informa tion from the same sources as Lord Lome got his from should be turned away from a section of the Unija where the safety of a traveling lady of rank is matter of doubt and special inquiry K The journals which so often asseverate that they are just and truthful on this subject, and con vey no false impressions, are contra dicted by the simple facts in this case. The Princess Louise and her traveling companions show the impressions un der which they labored by the in quiry they made, and the general of the United States army, in a position to be thoroughly informed, assures her that the impression is false and groundless. How and by what means was the falsehood spread abroad? The lesson to be learned from this incident is that southern states which desire any portion of the immigration to America which reaches this continent through northern ports must seek it by nrst removing the im pressions made by falsehood, com pounded of ignorance and malignity, and industriously circulated every day in the year by an unfriendly sectional press. The Washington correspondent of the Army and Navy Journal writes that the chances for favorable action of the house at this session on the Fitz-John Porter relief bill are ex ceedingly doubtfuLthough the opinion prevails that tne bill could be passed if consent were obtained to take it up from the speaker's table for considera tion. A dispatch to the same journal indicates that the president would veto the bill should it pass the house. The bill authorizes the president to nominate to the senate and on confirm ation to appoint Fitz-John Porter to the ' rank of colonel in the army held by him at the time or his dismissal, with discre tion to place him on the retired list, which shall be increased in number to that extent. There is a proviso that Gen. Porter shall receive no pay, com pensation or allowance whatsoever prior to his appointment under this act. In other words, it is proposed only to authorize the president to ap point Gen. Jf orter as a colonel to be placed on the retired list, the execu tive having already removed the dis qualification for holding office placed upon mm at tne time or dismissal from the service. The comin? fourth of March is now being looked forward to with anxiety. The number of jobs that are crowding in is alarming. The whisky tax bill has passed the senate, and, of course, it will pass the house. Arthur may veto it, out no one aares to nope tnat he will. More suspicious pension measures are ready. Land is asked for another northern railway, and seventy-five millions for a canal A multitude .of wasteful projects are looming up. It promises to be a costly session of congress, and it may do mischief that will long outlast it. Its acts will not be en titled to the highest respect as laws, when it is considered that in many states the people are gerrymandered out of an honest representation. Thus the majority is founded upon and comes out of fraud, and fraud vitiates all that comes from it, all that rests I on it. PRESS PODfTS. The pension list ought to be printed.

St, Louis Globe-Democrat, Mr. Hatton's contempt for civil ser vice reform and a general purification of political methods is notorious, but he should not be allowed to flaunt his defiance of the people in the face of their representatives, and to work his machine so openly as to bnng scandal upon the administration. Hatton and his methods should be suppressed. Philadelphia Telegraph. Jefferson said: "I would rather live in a country with newspapers and no government, than in a country with a government and no news papers."

Mad as a March hare, As sly as a fox, - As proud as a peacock, As strong as an ox; As fair as a lily, As cross as a bear, As rich as a Croesus," As empty as air. As pure as an angel. As neat as a pin, As smart as a steel trap, As ugly as sin; As dead as a door nail, As white as a sheet, As flat as a pancake, As red as a beet. As round as an apple, As black as my hat, As brown as a berry, As blind as a bat. As mean as a miser, As full as a tick. As plump as a partridge, As sharp as a stick. As clean as a penny. As bitter as gall, As hard as a flint, As dark as a pall; As dry as a toast, As clear as a bell. As fine as a fiddle, As deep as a welL As stiff as a poker, As calm as a clock. As light as a feather, As firm as a rock; 4.s green as grass, As busy as a bee, The cat's in the cupboard And she can't see. "What makes you ride larks. Mr. Snuggins?" asked little black eyed Jennie of her sister Lou, on College avenue, the other day. "Why, Jennie, i never heard or such thing." "WelL I never either, till ma told sis this morning that you got on more larks than any other young man in Austin, snuggins has sought pas tures new. A Nashville correspondent of the Memphis Avalanche writes: There i3 a varied opinion as to whether Polk will be punished tor his misdeeds. For myself I do not believe he ever will, and that a year irom to-aay ne will be a free man, with no shadow of charge against him. Jdis friends and relatives will clear up the balance and Polk will go unpunished. The committee in the roik case have probably struck the bottom, but after the popular indignation is some what quieted, who will there be who will say send a one-legged man to the penitentiary, who bears the honored name of Polk, especially when he has made up his shortage to the state ? When Polk's various investments are closed out and subjected to the state's hen, they will realize $100,000. The loaned money when collected will re alize $100,000, and that leaves $100,000 for Polk to pay. The battle of New Orleans seems to have come now to be regarded, uni versally, as a Democratic victory. Republicans don't like to take part in celebrating the day, lest they be sus- pectea ot indorsing "old Andy ana his spoils system!" Well, how is that for i . . i . r m . i nign r jaacon xeiegrapa. White House Feasts. Chicago Times. General Grant must have been con vinced by the splendor of the dinner at the white house in his honor that Mr. Arthur has had no rivals as an ornamental president. Grant himself Was never a - brushed 'entertainer. After a career of tan-bark and glory he went into the presidency almost before the the Appomattox mud was cleansed from his boots. His tastes were shocking to persons insensible to the innate beauty of the pugnacious bull-dog, and callous to the exquisite pleasure to be derived from a fast team and a road wagon. He knew a good deal about leather and war, but nothing about blue cnina ana menus. It might have been difficult for him to tell what kind of wine should properly follow the game. Possibly he might have said that whisky was good enough for him. With such unfath omable ignorance of the fine art of dining, the banquets at the White House during Grant's administration might be extravagantly expensive, but could never be superlatively ele- under nayes. economy prevented much display, and the entertainments of that period are recalled only as dreary and wineless deserts, affording nothing but unpalatable crab apple cider to cool parched Bps and allay burning thirst. The Garb eld admin istration was characterized by sim plicity, and the president him self was somewhat lacking in the arts and graces for which his successor is so highly dis tinguished. Mr. Arthur is one of the few statesmen who can travel the devious course from soup to nuts without committing the smallest solecism. To him the most elaborate French menu is as familiar as a fish pole. He is perfectly au fait on all the little devices and refinements which attend an artistic dinner. The edibles at his banquets are of the proper kind, and the courses follow each other according to the best ap proved rules of gastronomy. The wines are always of the right kind and served with epicurean regulations. Gen. Grant undobtedly has a first-class dinner, ana it ne aid not turn down his glass he must have arisen with the comfortable reflection that his inner man had been pretty hospitably entertained.

It has a frontage on Trinity river, which forms its northeastern boundary, for a distance of thirty five miles, and Chambers and Richland creeks. both large streams, flow through the county, the one from northwest tol southeast, the other from west to east, and unite near the southeastern corner. Tributary to each of these are a large number of smaller but un failing streams, well distributed for convenience ol water for stock and general purposes. Where streams are not at hand, artificial tanks are easily constructed, which retain water in the dry est seasons. Owing to the slight inclination of the underlying strata, there are but few springs, but, for the same reason, water is easily obtained by wells, and overflowing artesian wells, in the opinion of competent judges, may be had by boring to no great depth. ine bottom lands, frequently for a mile or more in width, along all the water courses, are covered with a forest growth, consisting of hickory. pin oak, pecan, cedar, and cotton wood. Mesquite is scattered extensively over the prairies in some portions, and post oak and blackjack are found in con siderable abundance on the sandy up lands. Cedar, large enough for fence- posts ana teiegraph-poies, la plentiful in many oi tne creeK Dottoms. it is estimated that one-fifth of the area is covered with timber. In its geological structure, the county belongs to the chalk formation. The strata are thin and slightly in clined to the southeast, and being com posed of successive layers of soft lime stone, sandstone, clays and marls, give rise to a variety of soils. Lime and organic remains abound in the original deposits which, being well mingled by the action of the elements, render the soils generally very fertile, while the different belts partake of distinct qualities which adapt them to different products. The black lands, which are generally prairie, predomi nate, and are considered best adapted to cotton, grain and the grasses, and the sandy post oak uplands to the products of the orchard and garden. Nearly the entire area is susceptible of profitable cultivation, and farms range in size from 75 to 200 acres. The county is well adapted, both in cli mate and soils, to diversified farming, and the average yield of cotton, corn, wheat, rye, barley, oats, millet, hay, sorghum, potatoes, melons, and all kinds of vegetables common to the latitude, is up to the best standard of the state. Peaches, pears and grapes, especially the first named, yield abun dant crops of superior fruit. The mean annual rainfall, as registered at Corsicana, from September 15, 1874, to December 31, 1881, was 39.35 inches, and it wa3 generally well distribu ted throughout the year. Along the Trinity river are extensive groves of pecan trees, which bear heavy crops of valuable nuts. Improved agricultural implements are used very generally, and with great saving of labor to the farming interests. The land, being largely open prairie, is easily reduced to cultivation, and fencing with wire and one plank, on mesquite, cedar or postoak posts, costs from $175 to $250 a mile. Unimproved prairie land can be bought from $3 to $10 an acre, and timbered land from $8 to $20. Improved farms, of from 75 to 200 acres in extent, are held at from $10 to $20 an acre. 'From $2 to $3 per acre is generally paid for rent of land in cultivation. Notwithstanding that the pasturage has been somewhat impaired by rea son of the range being over-stocked. and by occasional burning off of the grass, there is still sufficient open graz ing ground to render stockraising an important industry, though it is found to be more profitable la enclosed pas tures. The ordinary prairie grass is at present most abundant, but the mes quite grass is spreading rapidly, and, with the Bermuda, which has been introduced, and is highly esteemed for its nutritive properties, promise, in a few vears. to suDoIant all other grasses. Stock generally keep fat on the open range for eight months, and manage to subsist tolerably well for the re mainder of the year, but thrive better with some feed and increased atten tion in severe winters. According to the assessment rolls of 1882, there are in the county 16,216 horses and mules, 39,774 cattle, 19,000 sheep, 12, 787 hogs, and 158 goats. Work horses are worth $40 to $80; mules, $50 to $100; oxen, $50 to $60 per yoke; beef retails at from b to 10 cents per pound ; mutton, 10; pork, 10; bacon lo to 16; corn, $1 per bushel; flour, $5 per hun dred pounds. Domestic fowls are raised in great numbers, and with lit tle trouble or expense. Large game is scarce, but prairie chickens. plover and jack-rabbits are numerous. The many kinds of fresh wa' t fish are moderately abundant in the Trinity river. The Houston and Texas Central railway, running north and south through the county, and the Texas and St. Louis railway (narrow guage), running east and west, form a junc tion at Corsicana, and there are, be sides Corsicana, eight stations in the county, three on the former and four on the latter. Corsicana is situated on gently roll ing, well drained ground, in an ex tended prairie, about five hundred feet above the sea level, and contains about 5000 inhabitanis, and is in every respect a prosperous, progressive city. Its aggregate trade, much of which - is by wholesale, amounts to about $3,500,000; large quantities of goods being sold to dealers in the many vil lages and trading points scattered throughout the county. Corsicana has a handsome stone courthouse, two large and commodious public school buildings, nine churches, many of them spacious and tasteful in structure, and a number of substantial business houses. Rice, Dresden, Kerens, Spring HilL Pur don and Blooming Grove are thriv ing rural villages, surrounded by prosperous farming communities. There are postoffices and one or more stores at Chatfield, Wadeville, Rural Shade, Birds ton, Eureka, Pursley, Richland, Angus, .Navarro Mills. Cross Roads, and Bazette, the . local dealers usually purchasing their stock of goods in Corsicana. The county has a large and increas ing county school fund, besides the amount of the state school fund an nually apportioned, and there are about ninety free schools in operation, for a total scholastic population of 3733 pupils. The city of Corsicana has assumed control of the schools within her limits, and levies a tax of one-half of one per cent ad valorem for their support in addition to the state and county fund. Excellent buildings for vate and colored pu pils, separately, hvW'een erected, and the daily attenda.' '"is something more than five hundred, in Corsi cana, the Methodist, Cumberland Presbyterian. Old School Presbv terian, Baptist, Episcopal, and Roman Catholic denominations all have church edifices, and there are good church conveniences in every rural neighborhood, -i The county levies a tax of 50 cents on the $100, and has practically no ueui; me city, a tax, including that for public free schools, of one per cent ad valorem, and owes a debt of $25,000, incurred in the erection of school buildings. The county is generally character ized by a high order of intelligence. and has a conservative, energetic, tunny population, ine general ele vation oi tne county, its geological formation and thorough drainage, render it, in point of health, equal to any portion oi central Texas. La Vendee is a department in the west of France formed from the old province of Poiton and bordering on the bay of Biscay. The woody tract in the centre of the department is known as le Bocage, the marshy dis trict tuong tne coast is called le Marais, and the rest of the country ia riiune. .iter tne proclamation of the first republic the royalist insur rection broke out in La Vendee and afterward spread over Lower Poitou, Anjou, Lower Maine and Brittany. The movement was semi-religious in its character and originated with the peasantry, who in 1793, under the lead of a wagoner, the brave Cathe- linian, overpowered a small body of republican troops, or the Blues as they were called, and were thus en couraged to undertake greater enter prises. Among tne distinguished and heroic leaders ot the insurrection were Gaston, a wig maker. tetollleL a game keeper, Charette, a navid officer, and especially La Rochejaquelein, but they were signally defeated in 1793. and hundreds of them massacred. The ordinary forms of execution proving too slow, Carrier, a monster in human form, caused the Vendean prisoners at Nantes to be drowned in masses. In the following spring. however, the war broke out again under the leadership of La Rochejaquelein. Stoffiet and Charette. and the Chouans with whom the Yendens were afterwards united, ap peared in arms at the same timo on the north of the Loire, in the depart ments of Morbinhan and Cotes-du-Nord. In 1795 the convention made peace with them, guaranteeing entire amnesty, freedom of religious wor ship, exemption from military service and indemnification for their losses. In the following June, however, they again took up arms, being incited so to do by the landing at Ouiberon of the body of French emigres. Gen. Hoche, the greatest and the ablest general of France, second not even to Napoleon, was sent against them, and succeeded after StotUet and Charette had been taken and shot, in 1796, in reducing the country to submission, but the cruel butcheries of 1793-4 were not repeated. During the Hundred Days" in 1799 and lsoo, In surrectionary movenents also took place in La Vendee, but they assumed no very formidable proportions. Wants of the Deaf and Dumb Asylum. The general and state governments. in reference to public buildings, have never learned economy. The shrewd common sense that so often charac terizes individuals in business trans actions, is ignored when public funds are useu. State pride and enlightened self-in terest suggest that the foundations of public institutions for the unfor tunate be laid broad and deep, and the structures reared upon them be not only pleasing to the eye, but enduring, and well adapted to the purposes for which they are designed. Although tne practical results ot hu man benevolence are seldom attained at once, there is no excuse for in sufficient or make-shift beginnings. Men appointed to locate the public buildings should be educated, practi cal and philanthropic. The great de sideratum is a pleasant, healthy, roomy location, with an abundant supply of good, never-failing water. Having formed some conception of the im portance and magnitude of the work. present and future, they should set tle upon a plan, complete in all its de tails; and then, whether the first struc ture be a wing or the main building, it shouid finally be a well-planned. harmonious monument of beauty and usefulness, a blessing to the state and tne anucted. For more than one-third of a centu ry Texas has been making provisions for her wards. But look at the deaf and dumb asylum, south of Austin, across the Colorado river. The supply of water tor domestic animals, for cooking and bathing purposes, is entirely wanting a large part of the year. The senti ment that cleanliness is next to godli ness commends itself to the common sense of men as orthodox, but of what avail is sentiment when the essential requirements are wanting Y The main building has been creditably fin ished, but the chaos of old frame buildings in the rear are positively shabby, and afford only the poorest accommodations to pupils and teach ers. One of these is used as chapel, study-room, boys' sitting-room and play-room in bad weather; three teachers are obliged to occupy it for class-rooms during school hours, and it also answers tor dormitory. There are no hospitals, so necessary for the sick, especially in contagious diseases, and the dilapidated dining-room is taxed to its utmost capacity. The re cent norther occasioned much suffer ing among the occupants of these old buildings, will the parents of these afflicted children be satisfied to pay taxes to increase the facilities of other institutions when those so dear to them are neglected ? The great, wealthy state of Texas can now, through her legislature, remedy the evils to which reference has been made. By a small outlay. water may be brought in sufficient quantity to meet present and pros pective wants. By the additional ex penditure of a few thousand dollars, buildings can be erected to furnish ample accommodations for dining om, hospitals, chapel, school rooms .1 It 1 il . l.j uoriiuwjiiea, tuus greauy promot ing the credit, comfort and conveni ence of all concerned. This asylum and her silent inmates appeal to the generous impulses of the people, to tne fostering care or tne state, and a higher power for justice. XX. The World's Railroads. Of the 249,590 miles of railroads at the close of 1881, North and South America are credited with 132,186 miles; Europe,, 108,002; Asia, 10.G74; Australia and adjacent islands, 5481 : Africa, 3147. The United States led all other countries many fold, it hav ing at that time 104,831 miles of com pleted road. The second country in extent of railroad is Germany, which had 21,446; Great Britain comes next, with 18,'ZHl: Kussia has I4,i. miles. The United States at the close of 1881 had within 40U0 miles as much rail road as all of Europe. The total foot ing for the year will be not less than 12,000 miles. In less than three years there will be as many or more miles of railroad in the United States as in all the rest of the world besides. Our Wool Production. About 25 per cent of the entire pro duction of domestic wool during the census year of 1880 came from two states, Ohio and California, the former with 25,000,000 pounds, the latter 17,000,000; in 1870 the product of the former was 20,000,000, and the latter 11,000,000 pounds. The next states in order of importance as wool growers in 1880 were Michigan with 12,000,000, New York with 9,000,000, Pennsyl vania with 8,0u0,000, Missouri with 7.000.000. and Wisconsin with 6.000.000. Texas produces nearly as much as the latter state. In 1870 it produced only 1J25.000 pounds. The total product of the Union in 1880 was 15aJO,000 pounds, clipped from 35,000,000 sheep.
