Organised la the winter of 79 aad '0. The liberal eitisoaa, aesieud by appropriations from the Ooaaoil, furnlehed the company with aa elegant track the following eprina Oreel enthnid- asm was mantfeated by the members for awhile, but biukeriuge in the eompeny and a lack of encouragement from the people had their inevitable effect, and the company expired after a year's ssUteaoe. For two years the track was the the '.itep-ohtur of the town and found a gratuitous and nnweU some boms la unoccupied houses, during which time It was despoiled of its axes, lau- terns, and ona or two ladders. CouAagratiooa at La in paaaa and other Texas towns in the years 188S-4 again sug. geeted the necessity of organised protection against firs. The Water Company . having laid their mains, and br contract with the town, provided lire hydrants on ths square, gave additional incentive to the Idea, and af ter several oltiaena' meetlnge, a Hoae Com. pany waedeeided upon. A proceeeof "ero. lutloo" developed Itself Into the . 1 'Alert Hoar Company," organised in May, 1684, B. B. Rose, President, Chas. Hutchlngs, Foreman, with competent assistants as of. Seers, and able and active men for duty. The citlsens with characteristic liberality subscribed for the purchase of a Track, and the Council,; true to the- interests of the town; appropriated the deflolt necessary, and a substantial and handsome truck was at tained. 600 feet of S-inch hose was also bought, thus placing the entire business portion of ths town under protection. The propriety of organising the Hook and Ladder Company was agitated, and after several informal meetings an organisation was perfected of ""San Marooa Hook and Ladder Com pany No. I." Judge E. R. Kone president, C. H. Ran foreman, with a membership of stalwart "activee" who give good promise of efficiency when work is to be done. In September, 1884, by concurrent action of ths companies, a Fire Department was organized, and E. P. Reynolds was elected chief. . Yet without uniform, and unwilling to tax the liberality of the Town Government or present the generally unwelcome sub scription paper, the firemen determined to give the pubiio an entertainment, from the result of which they hoped to provide the needed dress. The 19th of October is the red letter day of the department, for then our people, always liberal, manifested an almost excess of generosity, matron aud maiden, sire and son, rich and poor, all gave encouragement by their presence, and the "gala occasion" promised in the an nouncements waa really one of good feeling and prolonged into the night with results so substantial, that ''the boys" to-day have belt and blouse hat or helmet to betoken their membership. Every occupation is represented in the companies and promo tion is the "reward of merit." ORGANIZATION. B. P. BATNOLDS, CHIEF. " Alebt Hosk Company. B. B. Rose pres ident, B. W.

The department now has a good house and appurtences and men are in condition to promise efficient service should they be called to duty. In a town like ours where a fire might not occur once a year, some social pleasures and privileges are neooesary to preserve the fire organization, and the citizen who disa proves of parades and festive occasions, does so without appreciation of their influ ence in stimulating the pride of corps. In oourse of time literary associations may grow up and a firemen" library may cement the organization. This done, the citizens will only have to give approving words and the department will sustain itself. Rattlesnakes are. eonsiderine the season. quite numerous in these parts.

A ball being needed by the fire oVparV lo pleas ssi its new "atigine house," a the treeaury aot being full enough to Beet the expense. It was deolded after some op. pokltioa of ths members, to give a ball and oyster supper la order to rales a portion, at least, of the amount needed. Having hut s short time to prepare for the occasion, they went rigorously to work aad with ths kind assistance of the ladies of our town, who contributed large numbers of cakes chicken fixings, and other good things In numerable, and aaalstad personally at the supper, everything waa shipshape at ths proper time. Besides ths viands indioated above, oysters wars served fried, stowed or 'straight," that is raw, aad everything was In ths greatest abundance. Supper was to be had at any time from 8 o'clock to It, - ST TBS BALL BOOM, Wars gathered ths youth and beauty of ths San Marooa valley, to ths number two hun dred or more, Inoludlng nearly all of our San Marcos belles who are votaries of ths graceful muss and love to trip "ths light fantastic too." Others were present from adjoining towns, and all seemed to be enjoy. lug themselves to the utmost. Among those In attendance ws noticed several staid m'n", whose ooontenanoea beamed ba nlgnantly upon the scene, and who wars ev idently In fall sympathy with ths youthful throng. A feature of ths svenlng was ths prlss oaks auotlon, Judge Kone officiating. The first oaks was to be awarded to ths most beautiful lady In the room, Mies Willie WiL llameon, of San Marcos, and Mrs. Reed, of Lockhart were immediately put in nomina tion and the bidding was "fast and furious," Mrs. Reed led off with a majority bat the ohampions of her competitor came nobly to the rescue and it was nip and tuck between them. Just here some of ths company who had not taken part in theoouteet called loudly for "musio" and there being an ap parent lull In ths Toting, ths cake was awarded to Mrs, Reed though "millions" were yet in sight, ths Judge probably over looking: this fact The announcement of the result was received with great applause by the Lockhart delegation aud numerous friends of the fair winner, who we learn is a very popular young lady.' Thin-cake brought $22.60. Later in the evening an other cake was potun for the most graceful' dancer, and won by Miss Jessie Lyelh The hall was tastefully decorated. Fes toons of cedar., hung on either aide and across the stage., with . Chinese lanterns placed at intervals. In the middle on eith er side, enolosed in large wreaths of cedar, were tbe colors and emblems of the two companies, while wreaths of cedar hnng along the middle of the ceiling. ' Taken al together it made an extremely neat appear ance, and the committee on decoration, Messrs. Carter, Smith, and Northcraft, de serve special credit for the manner in which they discharged their duties. The musio was furnished by Messra Rigs by, Williams, Peoples, Reed and Richard sou, who gave their services tree of charge. The Sau Marcos Brass Band also discoursed good musio between times. We believe we have never seen before in Sun Murcos, as successful and enjoyable an affu;r of this kind. Nothing occurn d to uiur the pleasure of the evening, and. to use a well worn quotation slightly modified :.

St To ths People of San Marcos. I am directed by officers aud lnomh rs of the San Marcos Fire Department to i xtend to you their very grateful thanks for the evidence of appreciation of their me riv dis played in their very liberal patronage of their recent entertainment. The results hnve been for above tbe expectations of the most sanguine, and the new pledge of j our regurd for the fire boys will nerve each one to "do and dare" his utmost in your behalf should the fiery element ever jeopard your property. Where all have been so iioerai, invidious Sistinction would be improper, but special thanks are tendered the ladies who toiled so faithfully to make the supper a success. We are rich in thankfulness, but poor in ability to give expression w our feelings of obligation. Hoping thot our enemy a fire, may never occur to stive us an opportunity to make "honors easy," but assuring you of faithful servioe in such event. I am your obliged servant, E. P.

This benevolent society held Its twenty, nlutb, anniversary in th Christian church of this place on Sunday night, 11th Inst Services In ths other churches were sus pended and pastors and people united in this meeting. Th congregation wss large, the services interesting and instructive. They consitted of good musio, reports of the work of ths society during the past year, aud addresses by Rsv. f. B. French and Rev. W. B. Rankin, District Bnperin. tendent of ths American Bible Society for Texas. " At th table In front of ths altar were seated the President, Prof J. N. Richard eon, who presided with dignity, and ths Secretary, Mr. Charles Hutching, who dis charged bis duties in his usual graceful nianuer. The popular Treasurer, Dr. t. H. Combs, was nicely oomplimented in being made a life member of the Parent Sooiety by a contribution of thirty dollars from ths audience, and friends of ths oause. The sooiety adopted a by-law which made each of ths pastors of tbs churches in our city co-operating with ths sooiety, a mem. ber of the Executive Committee. This is a wise provision and will be helpful to the churches and aid in carrying out ths chief object of the Amerioan Bible Society and its Auxiliaries, wbioh is to seek out ths needy and destitute and supply them with ths Holy Scriptures without note or com ment by gift or sale at ooat This institution is doing a large and good work. As an instanoei one of our pastors who is interested in tbe good of our Mexi can population, wanted Bibles and Testa, menta for them, but the San Maroos Aux iliary was unable to furnish them.- An ap plication was made to the Parent Sooiety, endorsed by the President of the San Mat cos Auxiliary, and three dozens of Bibles, in value $15 00, were at onoe donated by the Parent Society for this commendable work. There are 130 Auxiliary Bible Societies in this State, These with the 20 oolporteurs at the expense of the Parent Sooiety, put in circulation annually over 50,000 copies of the Holy Boriptures lu thiiteen different languages in this State. From the Bible House in New York City over 1,600,000 copies of the Scriptures, printed in l(i4 languages and dialects, are annually distributed throughout the world. Last year it employed 400 colporteurs in America, and gave work to 200 persons in its building at New York. It also employ ed 877 oolporteurs in foreign countries, and has two manufacturing houses beyond the seas. Its business is oonduoted by a Board of Managers, consisting of 86 laymen of various Christian denominations, without salary. The Hon. F. T, Frelinghuysen, now Secretary of State, at Washington City, was lately elected to and has accepted the Presi-. dency of this great institution. In the United States there are 18 District Superintendent, over a like number of Bible Districts. The State of Texas con. stitutes one District, of which Rev. W. B. Rankin, is Superintendent, with headquar ters at Austin, Texas. He visits our town annually in his work. Ths work is benevo lent and unsectarian, sustained by tbs gifts of those who love end believe in the Bible. Caution to Consumers of Oil.

Ten der, gentle and true, her Ufa waa a beauti ful poem, in which duty was ths svsr recur ring refrain.
