The great and general dwsire which
has for some time prevailed to hear
Schleicher and Ireland together, was
gratified on Tuesday last. Both gen
tlemen aocquitted themselves to the
entire satisfaction, of their respective
friends, and good order and good tem
per prevailed. Some things we might
criticise; but we are running tbe Free
Press, and not the politics of this
Accident and Death. Charles
L. Kone, a young man of this vicinity
of a remarkably powerful constitution,
came to an untimely end in conse
quence of what at first appeared to be
a rather trivial acoident, He trod on
a garden rake a short time since, and
failing to use proper precautions, it re
sulted in lockjaw, from which he died
on Monday last, after several days of
fearful suffering. The event caused
general feeling of sadness and re
gret io this community.

Our young ex-typographioal friend,
A. F. Harvey, has given us important
and valued assistance in getting out
our paper this week.
Happening at the house of our
distinguished and Worthy fellow
citiieu, Jasob Sanders, on Wednesday
eveoiug, we found the family (Miss
Dora io partioular)rejoioing over a new
piauo which had just been put in posi
tion by Messrs. Hopkins & Mosier, who
prooeoded to inaugurate it by quite a
nice little musical entertainment.
Mr. Sanders is a prominent candidate
for County Couimisiooer, though with
out any notion of his own in that ' di.
reotion and if elected, will be able to
entertaia his "constituents" who may
oall on bim with good musio.
We Lad the pleaure this week of
making the acquaintance of Mr.
Onderdonk, of Mission Valley, Vic
toria Co., a distinguished nursery
man, well known in Western Texas.
He had some offioial connection with
the late conference, but his chief
''Mission" is horticulture, and "mis
sionary work' in that direotion is cer
tainly greatly needed in Texas. By
his advertisement, which appears in
our oolumns this week, it will be
seen that Mr. 0. is challenging tho
attention of our people to his
unrivalled facilities for meeting their
wants in his line, and that he has
sppointed B. W. Breeding of this
town his agent for this locality, All
should read this advertisement care
fully, and leave their orders with Mr.
The Conference.
This body closed its sessions on
Tuesday. Since our last repoit an ad
dress was made by the Bishop to the
Mexican brethren, through an inter
preter. On Saturday night the Bish
op preached in behalf of foreign mis
sions, chiefly the Mexican, and a col
lection was made.
On Sunday morning scarcely half
tho people could get into the church
the ladies occupied it almost exclusive
ly. There was a brilliant array of
beauty, and being compelled to stand
in the door, and look over the congre
gation, their bonnets mado it appear
quite like a large flower garden or con
servatory. The Bishop preached an
impressive sermon, after which several
deacons, most of tbem Mexicans, were
ordained. At night after an able ser
mon by Rev. E. S. Smith and the
communion service, an old-fashioned
revival was inaugurated, which was
oontinued on Monday night, and re
sulted in several conversions and ac
cessions to the churoh. Tbe pulpits
of the other churches of this place
were also occupied by members of the
The list of appointments will be
found in another column. It will be
seen that no changes are made at this
place a fact which is a matter of con
gratulation, we believe, to the great
body of our people.

. Wootton Hotel. We referred
in out last to the exterior improve
monts in this house. We have since
called there, and find that the interior
has also been thoroughly renovated
and re-lurniBhed, io the way of paint
ing, papering, new carpets, furniture,
&c Everything is as "bright as a
new pin," and the very style and air of
tho dining room would be calculated
to put one in a good humor and give a
good appetite.
Tbia house will be opened to the
publio forthwith. It will be conduct
ed on the plan, universal in the largor
and more enterprising towns, of serv
ing each guest at table with the stand
ard articles of food, and what is other
wise required, independently of all
others. We wonder this plan has not
long since been introduced here, and
don't see why it should not be as ac
ceptable here as elsewhere.
Mr. and Mrs. Wootoo have had con
siderable experience in keeping hotel ;
are persons of sterling reliability ; and

"new style," a new and successful ca

at Kingsbury.
W. H. Harris & Co., the well
known Lumber dealers of Marion.have
started a branoh establishment at
Kingsbury, on the G. H. & S. A.
Railway, where they will sell Lum
ber of all kinds as low as it can be
bought in any market. They have had
long experience in the business, know
the wants of the people of this section,
and guarantee satisfaction in every
instance. Their yard will be first
class, consisting of all varieties of
Texas and Louisaina yellow pine lum
ber both rough and dressed, Doors,
Sash, Blinds, Nails, etc. They will
sell rough lumber at Austin rates, and
on dressed lumber will offer induce
moots over any other Western mar
ket. KingBbury being now our nearest
railroad point, and the road there hav
ing recently been greatly inproved,
we see no season why our people who
need lumber should not give Harris,
& Co, their orders. Oct, 26 4w
Editor Free Press : Judging
from the speaking on Tuesday last, I
am convinced that each candidate
thought that it was an easy task to
settle the finanoial problem in compari
son with tbe task of getting into Con

after them the above "Parthian arrow."-
The Liocal Paper.
The New York Times, speaking of
ooal papers, says: "You might near-
yas well forget your church, your
academies and sohoolhouses, as to for
get your local paper. It speaks to ten
tiroes the audiences that your local
minister does. It is read eagerly each
day and each week from beginning to
end. It reaches you all, and if it has
a lower spirit and less wisdom than a
sermon, it has a thousand times better
chance at you. Lying, as it does, oc
every table in almost every house, you
owe it to yourselves to rally liberally
to its support, and exact from it as
able, high-toned a character as you do
from an educator in your midst. It is
in no sense beneath notice and oare
unless you yourself are beneath notice
and care for it is your representative.
Indeed, in its character, it is the sum
mation of the importance, interest aid
welfare of you all. It is the aggregate
of your own coosquenoe, a ad you can
not ignore it without miserably de
preciating voureelvea."
