Ton will not be apt to overlook the new advertisement of Dailey k Bro., so wo need scarcely call you attentiou to it. We saw a splendid beef, "as fat as but- ter," brought in to the Williamson corner meat market on yesterday. It was entirely grass fed on Elder Driskill's pasture. Postmaster MoMeans asks as to publish his request to all to callttnd get their mail on Saturday, as the office will be removed forthwith after that date.

The Ladies Aid Society of the Baptist Churoli will give an oyster supper at the court house, on Tuesday Deo. 27, for the purpose of raising money to improve their churoh. All are invited to attend.

There was an alarm of fire on Tuesday moral ng in consequence of a blaze which originated from some asbea einpteJ in tha rear of the bookstore of Smith & Co. With a strong wind from the north, had it not been immediately discovered the conse quence would probably nave bseu most disastrous. A timely warning. The Scientifio American, refered to in an other column, under the heading of "Pat ents," is the very best publication in this country for those interested in soienoe, en gineers, mechanic, inventions, eto. A oopy of the Soienli&o American may be seen at the office of this paper, where subscrip tions will be received. The new Hofhaiur Hotel is Listening to completion, and will be open to the public not very long, probably, after the holidays. We took a bird's-eye view of the new par lor, dining room and kitchen on yesterday. Each is admirable in its way. The two former are beautifully frescoed and deco rated. Both are splendidly lighted and are unsurpassed by the average oity hotels. The oooking rauge in the kitchen we should thin i would be the delight of the cooks. Mr. Hofheinz promised to show ns through the entire building when completed, and then we will make further report. A printer stood at the desk of a business man the other day, and noticed him using letter and bill heads bought of an eastern house. Said the printer, who is a customer, what would you think of me if I were to go east and buy your line of goods for my self and family?" The merchant replied: 'I would think you a fool when I know you can get the same goods as cheap from me and aid a fellow citizen." When the print er called his attention to the imported letter and bill heads, the merchant coughed and went behind the counter to wait on a cus tomer. And the same merchant only a few days before asked the printer to give him a free puff about bis big stock of new goods. Greenville Herald. ' The W. C. T. U. of San Marcos. Wo have in our Union something over twenty members. We ought to have over one handred and twenty live, working mem bers, for surely the cause which we repre sent and for which we are working and praying, is a noble one one in wbioh every Christian heart should be engaged. Only four of the churches of our city are repre sented in our Union, Methodist Baptist Christian aud Presbyterian, the larger por tion being Methodist My dear Sisters, in the name of love and pity for the fallen race, why are wa doing so little? Must God send some curse upon our own household to make ns feel for those whose homes and hearts are blighted by intemperance? Save ns from our indif ference, Ws are not working only for time but eternity. We are working to help move forward the great reform that shall save our boys, middle-aged and old men from shame and degradation; and more, the ten tones renting upon their beads, "No drunkard shall inherit the kingdom of God."

See announcement of our very liberal olubbing rates with the favorite Detroit Free Press. Trade in nearly all departments was brisk on Monday. The oold weather sinos has cut it down somewhat. See in our advertising columns a fnll an: novnoement of the remarkable olubbing terms we are enabled to offer in connection with the Galveston and the Dallas News. We notice that the Express, Times, Light and Tribune, of San Antonio, all is. sued highly crediiabls special holiday edi tions. . We hear it is proposed to erect a large brick building by several parties, on the co operative plan. The carrying out of this idea generally would be profitable to indi viduals coucernod, while it would build np the town more rapidly and oheaply than it can be done by any other plan. Next Sunday is Christmas. There are a number of widows and other helpless per. is in our town whose situation should appeal to the hearts and purses of our citi zens of means to help them. We trust that appeal, mute though it be, will not be dis regarded in this professedly .Christian com munity. It is too much the way of the world to help those who do not need help, while giving the needy the go-by. Suoh was not the counsel nor the practice of our Saviour, who made it his special mission to serve the poor aad needy. Surely our people will not be unmindful of his example on Christ mas. , . .' A singular scene for this place was pre sented on our streets on Wednesday even ing, viz; about a dozen houseless and home less men, usually stigmatized as tramps, in oharge of officers going to the county jail for lodging.
