San Angelo has a town clock, and now

31 y Own Shall Come.
JOHN llURROUCins.
Sereue I hold my hands and wait,
Nor care for wind, nor tide, nor sea;
I rave no more 'gainst time nor fute,
For lo! my owu shall come to me.
I stay my haste, I make delays,
For what avuils this esgor pace?
I stand amid the eternal ways,
Aud what Is mine shall know my face.
Asleep, awake, by night or day,
The friends I seek are seeking mo;
Nor wind oan drive my bark astray,
Nor change the tide of destiny.
What matter if I stand alone?
I wait with joy the coming yoari:
My heart shall reap where it has sown,
Aud gather np its fruit aud tears.
The waters know the'r own and draw
The brook that spriugs on yonder height;
So tlows the good with equal law
Unto the soul of pure Uuligut.
The flower nodding iu tho wind
Is ready plighted to tho bee;
And, maiden, why that look unkind?
For lo! thy lovor secketh thee.
The stors come nightly to the sky,
The tidal wave nnto the sea:
Nor time, nor space, nor deep, nor high,
Can keep my own away iroui me.
Bad Condition of tlte San Jfarcos and
Blanco Koad Onr Commissioners
Court Strongly Arraigned by the
the Blanco News.
We invito the especial atttention
of onr readers to tbe following article
in a recent issno of tho Blanco News.
It deals with a suoject of almost vi
tal importftneo to onr town. While
Kjle is continually urging tbe im
provement of her road to Blanco, Son
Marcos, it would appear, is serenely
indifferent to her connections with
Blanco town and county.
We will only add as regards
the an-aingment of onr commission
ers court below, that we aro scarcely
prepared to believe that it could
be so grossly derelict to the interests
of San Murcos. We await further
developments. But one thing is
certain, our city should not sit still
aud allow herself to be deprived of
the benefitH of tho large expenditure
hitherto made by our people for the
tho improvement of the road to
Blanco.
Tbe following is the editorial from
the News.
We are informed by some of our
freiebters that the wagon roud from
rnrgatory Springs to Stin Marcos is
in a pretty bad condition. It seemB
that the commissioners court of Hays
county has changed that portion of
the road, for tho convenience, we pro
sume, of some one who desired to
fence, and that Eince the change was
made und tho fencing done, the road
ruus through a long lane and has
never been worked, and is also longer
thin before the change.
We doubt if this is strictly in
ucoord'tnoe with the law. And if we
are rightly informed as to tho condi
tion of the road, it is certaiuly not
treating tho citizens of San Marcos
with much consideration. We know
that a few vears ago these citizens
expended some one or two thousand
lodara ou this piece of road in order
to make it a good freighting road.
This was clone in order to mako bun
Murcos a shipping point for Blanco
and tho surrounding country Now
tho commissioneis court in their wis
dom see fit to do away with the road,
in other words to deprive their town
aud county of the benefit of the mon
ey expended heretofore on the road.
It is true, the shipping over the road
for the past year has been light, but
that is on account of the drouth and
extreme- hard times. We have done
very little shipping to any point.
San Marcos is the most convenient
point for us, everything tuken into
consideration, but if the road is to
remain in a condition that makes it
dangerous for wagons to travel over
if loaded, Sau Marcos will most cer
tainly lose the patronage it would
otherwise get from Blanco. Will
San Marcos allow the trade of the
mountains to 6cek another point t
What is the mutter with the Hays
county commissioners court T 'Let
us hear from the Fbee ..Phesb and

Words of Wisdom on the Subject of Ad
vertising. Sullivan (Ind.) Dcnvcrat.
Immediately after tb Christmas Holiday
there is something of a lull in bnsiuess, but
it does not entirely Rtop by any means, and
is always worth looking after. The wide
awake business man will then plant hi ad
vertisements where they will seenre trade
when it come. During the holiday seasons
cuntoiner go out on a tonr of inspection on
their own responwhility, to see for them
selves. When the boiiday are over the
smut dnaltr go ft"r th cntora through
the coluinus of good local neiip-r,
which carrirs hi appeal to tbe buyer at his
winter fireside. When other ceas adver
tising hi invitation in the column of th
paper attract more attention a it stand al-
most alone. n nnJr4and that wh n
there are fewer to compete f'r the amIW

Tbe boom at Lockhart begin at last.
Severn! uew houses are bolng built, old oue
are shiuiug np, lot are changing bands
the Alliance ha erected the new store hard
by tbe depot, the street car are now a cer
tainty, the floats, hacks and big omnibu
ludicate a business activity that I really
novelty iu the heretofore slow-going old
town, that some one said "was flulshed
yearn ago." ,
' But a town with It natural adyaujagei
uniHt continue to grow. Surrounded a it
is by the very best farmlut lands in thi
country, having good health and inexhauxt
able wood aud water supply it must grow.
With a corpi of old iiioroliaiita who have
grown rich at their leisure, and an Influx of
new ouos to sting them into activity, and a
stream of emigration that will turn tbe
prairie luto an agricultural garden, it must
grow. With good srbools, seyen ohurchos,
good dairies aud fine water facilities, a fire
company and a base ball club, and proseut
and prospective railroad conveniences it
must boom aud boom I
Ou the streets of Lockbnrt you can seo
pruncing steeds of the finest blood, scrubby
pouies of tils' most contemptible proportions
tbe historic mule and the unpretentious
donkey. Ou the sidewalk you pass a live
Sonth ruer smoothe np with busiuevs and
smiling alike at success or failure. Here
you moot with the Buiart, live Yankee, wide
awuke aud always pushing. Thero goes
Geriuuu who will got the bulk of the trade
of his countrymen and hold his hand with
either the Southerner or the Yankee. Yon
dor is a Jew. who is "cussed" by all bands
and is always ou tho move, but he gets
fair division of trade Hall the same. The
negroa are trying to get supplies for an
other year, and the Mexican sits and suiokes
just as though he did not care if he never
was able to get up again. With all of this
aud more too, Lockhart is booming.
And the strangers too, are comii-g,
Aud the boys the strt ets are bumming,
Aud tbe pretty girls are humming,
Aud the traveliug merchants drumming,
And the doctors and the lawyers,
And the workers and employers,
Aud the lumber busiuoss looming,
And tho town is just a booming,
Aud wife said "Whore is the boom?"
And I said: "If you please madam, I haven't
seou the broom."

becoming mantle of snow. Stem winter

of tho young linlioB. At 9 o'clock- all were
assembled in Mrs. Potty's hospilablo par
lor. The young ladies seemed to be williug
to take advantage of the eveuing's privi
leges, for many an unconscious blush illum
inated the faces of tho fair young men as
she told him of her devotion. After awlnlo
refreshments wore passed, and all wont
merry as a marriage boll. Precisely at 12
o'clock the laughing company separated,
each oue only regretliog that every year did
not briug with it a leap year parly.
