The Chinese entertainment, " Saturday
night nnder the auspices of the Ladies Aid
Society of the Methodist Chnrch,was pret
ty well attended in spite of the bad weather,
and was a fair success. A supplemental
entertainment and supper were given on
Tuesday nioht by the ladies, which was
a pleasaut affair.
The above was prepared for our last,
but we failed to get it put in type.
Supper at Kyle.
There will be a supper given by the la
dies of Kyle on Friday night the 23 init,
for the purpose of raising means to pay for
a bell for the new Methodist church at that
place. A supper at n.yie we nro suiu
means a supper inaeea a squoro meai.
The price will be 25cts, whioh low rate is
intended to induce the attendance of fami
lies as well as individuals. A special invi
tation is extended to the peoplo of San Mar
cos to be present on the occasion.
The Boston Quintette Club was greeted
on last Thursday night at the court house,
by alarce attendance of our most intelligent
people. Each of the several instrumental
performers seemed to approaohasnear per

two appearances of Miss Carpenter and her
seraphic singing, were worth all tbe rest oi
the entertainment fine as it was, many
timss over. All, we think, were delighted.
The following, which we clip from the
Luling Signal, will be found quite appro

As the time for the city election ap
proaches, it would be well for the people of
Luling to be "casting about" for anitoble
n-en to fill tbe vacancies that will oocnr on
the board of aldermen. While conncilmen
serve without remuneration, the office is no
less an important one, and no man who
feels an interest in tbe welfare of his city
should refuAe to serve if called npon. Let
the people select their best and moat pro
gressive men and elect them, and our local
affairs will move onward harmoniously and
satisfactorily.

accepting office as deputy shoriff. The

charge, and he is again at large. We learn
that be persists in affirming that tbe peni

VTs need scarcely say that ths sketch of a
scoutiug party in Western Texss In 18.K1,
which appeared in the Fbim Pkbhs of week
before last, waa from VogcUaug's Combos.
We claim to know a good thing when we

of this fact that we sent a prepared copy to drouth, and this year a eoutlnnal rain, "sor

tentlon to it. The result was its appesranos
in the Express of Sunday. We now add

t German Jew), who was present, broke
into a roar of laughter. Serg. Niohols gave
him some one loaf bread tickets. He went
to the bakerv. sot one loaf, or daily ration,
and ate the whole of it behiud the bake-
oven. The story of VoeePs complaint that
the bread was too light leaked out, and be
waa so much teased about It that be deter
mined to eat no more bread than the rest of
the men, and In a short time he got nsod to
it without inconvenience.
All that Vogel bad to do was to answer
to roll call and attend to the horses twioe a
day, about one hour's work; and as hs was
used to constant labor ne leu tiresome.
He noticed that in the publio road leading
an to the Fort from Fredericksburg there
were many boulders protruding out of the
ground to the inconvenience or teamsters
He concluded to level tnem aowo ior exer.
oise, and went to Kesxier, me uompany
blacksmith, cot the loan of a sledge Ham
mer and went to work. After a few hours
Kessler came down to where he was work
ing, took tbe sledge hammer rrom mm ana

had held a consultation among themselves
in recrard to Voeel's sanity on account of

later he sot very tiresome, and stimulated
by a desire to give an equivalent ior nis
monthly wages, ho wont to tbe Uraeriy
Sergeant and asked bim for something to
do, which caused a great laughter of the
ereeant and bystanders. Xbe sergeant
gave him an ax and told him to go with the
wood wacron. Afterward be bad no more
cause to oomplain for having nothing to do.
We also copy tbe concluding parngrapn
ith respect to the fugitive slave "Bob:"
We publish this narrative, not only be
cause of its general interest, out mora es
pecially in ordor to rescue from oblivion
the memory of a hero who, for m-iro than a
yeAr, naked and alone, without artinuiui re
sources, defended his liberty agaibst the
Stole of Texas, the Comanche Iudians, and
the U. 8. army. In ordor to make it possi
ble for fugitive Bob to remain a mm and
subsist in a wild oountry as a brute, be
must have had a constitution equal to that
of Adam before his fiill in paradise. In our
judgment Bob was a hero worthy of an
ient Sparta.

Tbe March Century contuius several
features of romantio interest First in
uniqueness, perhnps is Mr. Kcnnan's con
tinuation of his revelations in regard to the
state prisons, the details of which are re
markable for interest and bear every evi
dence of authenticity.
A narrative paper of thrilling detail is
Captain Frank . Moran's account of the
planning, mishaps, aud finally successful
execution of Colonel Itose s Tunnel at Lib-
by Prison, the narrator having been one of
tbe party who escap.d. "The article is illus
