Dengue being well understood to be a
sort of tender on yellow fever, and
never having been known before in the up
per portions of Texas, it becomes an inter
esting question to consider what it mean?.
It would seem clearly to imply that our sup
posed exemption from yellow fever may yet
prove iu the future a lamentable mistake.

Dr. Woods informs us that the corn crop
in one of his fields on the Blanco will yield
probably 60 bushels to the acre. A very

but remains in a ontical condition.
We meant to have said something last
week, but overlooked it, in palliation of our
reporter's sweeping criticism of the Brad
ford cotton packer. We are assured, and
take pleasure in stating, that said criticisms
were premature, and that there are good
grounds to anticipate the entire success of
the invention,
B. B. Rone, Esq., left on Tuesday on a
more extended and protracted visit to the
West, for the benefit of his health. We
learn he will be present at the sale of lots
in the new town of Pecos, will make his
headquarters for a time somewhere out in
that section of the State. We trust his best
hopes may be realized.
Mr. W. T. Dudgeon informs us of a sad
accident which occurred on Friday last in
is neighborhood, Green Mott, Caldwell
county. Alex. Smith, the 14-year old son
of C. S. Smith, while endeavoring to punch
out the pith of a china twig with a knitting
noedle run the needle into his stomach, and
lockjaw supervening, caused hi death.
When 'noting the cell of Mr. Needham
Smith, of the Blanco News, last week, we
were not aware of bis additional honors.
We have sinoe learned that he has recently
received the appointment of Justice of tbe
Peace and County Commissioner for the
Blanco precinct, to fill a vacancy caused by
resignation. No doubt a deserved appoint
ment.
We bad a pleasant call on Monday from
Mr. Frank Herndou, a nephew of Colonel
Herndon. from Murray county, Tennessee,
He informed us he has been in this section
for some considerable time, but we had not
made bis acquaintance before. We learned
from bim that the (jolonel was not, as we
had supposed,, a Mississippian, but a na
tive of Tennessee. He looks like the style
of men they grow there.
New lords and laws and everything gen.
erally at the San Marcos Hotel. The house
has been pretty thoroughly "reconstructed."
Although quite familiar with it heretofore,
we scarcely recognized it on passing through
it the first of the week. Tbe building bas
been repainted outside and in, and the in
terior pretty much "made over". The
dining-room and kitchen have shared in the
improvement. The smaller building is fit
ted up as a house for drummers. Just the
thing; strange no one ever thought of it
before. Bathing facilities have been added.
Maj. H. J. M'Larty is the new proprietor,
and we doubt not will soon be able to con
vince everybody that he "knows how to
keep hotel".
We have seen crazy quilts and crazy
patchwork in considerable numbers and va
riety, but are constrained to say that the
articles in that line which we saw on Mon
day, the work of Mrs. Dr. Jackman, fairly
"lead the procession" in that department
It is not so much in irregular contrasts of
colors, etc., that they excel, but in the ar
tistic eroupine and arrangement, all con
spiring toward the general effect They
also appear to lead as depositories of fami
ly mementoes throughout several genera
tions, and will thus constitute first-lass
heirlooms to those which are to follow. We
recognized the secret of the success of her
work in the manifest natural gifts and
acquired skill of the lady-artist, wbo by the
way we found to do one or tne pest conver
sationalists we have met for a long while.
We saw too, in the parlor, a mantel-rambre-qnin,
which indicated equal nicety of handi
work in a different direction. We aaw there
above that mantel something else that inter
ested us a life-size portrait of Alexander
Campbell, a fine apostolic-looking bead and
face. By the way, while Dr. J tckmsn is a
decided adherent of the doctrines of Mr.
Campbell, his wife is jnst as firmly attached
to tho! of John Wesley. And yet we feci
sure there are no "family jars" in ineir
borne over theological questions an ex
ample we would commend to wranglers on
those subjects. Altogether we were well
entertained and edified by our call.

Uall correspondent He Imagined we were
covering the whole ground when we spoke
of the sins in general of bunianitr, but
we are willing to admit tbe manner ia whloh
we expressed ourself was rather obscure.
We have ever contended that woman' In.
tellectual capacities were equal to and her
responsibilities much greater than those of I
man. regardless of bis position.
Wa did not allude especially to hi letter
when w spoke of a temperance reforma
tion, but we think female suffrage will un
avoidably lead to woman claiming equal
political privileges with man. She is bu-

the domestio machinery would get out or
repair, then there would be a general up
rising of tbe "lords of creation", at least
that ia our hnmble opinion. But as wo
man's rights is a problem that the wisest
have failed to solve, we will adopt the views
of a revercned gentleman who spoke in Ban
Maroos, that if the claim of woman's right
to vote were wrong it would fail, but if
right it would prevail, and no opposition
could prevent it. M.
fOn behalf of our readers we will say
right here that wbat they most want is the
local news; and our Martindale and Science

"pass" on the woman's rights question, we
