Geo V Uowell A Oo.,of Now York City ,lmvo
lMued i auuunl Newspaper Directory for
thirty roars or 'uore- n"d those publications
have been generally recognized fin authority
un to the uiotttor of newspaper circulation.
Iutho regular issues of thu Directory they
hart included nil tho uawspapera published
in tbo United Btntos and Canada, f.nito
roeutlv. however, they huvo Issued a t-ou-OouHOiUt.
It fc'ivoB only t'uf bet uowspa
uen a advertising mediums, nud bunco in
tirnotioally better, because mora convenient,
tliau their larger Directory. Four-fifths of
the newspaper of 4,16 United Stutes ere
oractioally "conntud out" by Intelligent ad
vertisers, who ouly want to know tht ht.
Heuce tbo ynluo of tho work nud.ir notice.
Th. publishers in 'ue preface woll say:
"It sifts tho wbofit from the chaff. It di.
rct the attoutiou of mi advertiser toward
punors which ho should find ought to use,
and tonrts to intoroopt a portion of that pa
tronage wbjeU goes to publications which
oust greatly iu excess of finy power to bene
fit which thoy possess. It takes the gouoral
urouud, thut tho best is tho cheapest."
Wo need scarcely say that on this plan,
the I'kbb Phkss is givou by this hook (soo
pgo 15H) as t?u advertising medium of Sim
Marcos and Hays county, it being the only
oat on tht lul. Wo respectfully invite the
attention of advertisers, both at homo and
abroad, to this fact.

"Do your duty," woro tho worda ol
Lord Wollington to bin soldloru Just
before the buttlo of Watorloo find his
tory tolls us how well thoy obeyed.
The earuo advice wight properly 14
given to every living man at thia time.
Thoro ftro many men who wonld do
their wholo duty in timu of war Oi
groat ncod, but who sadly neglect it In
tlmoa of pcaco, they would gladly rbk
tholr Uvea for their country, but when
thoro li no such grout occasion, nocrlocl
their plain simplo duties to their God,
thoir families and themselves. It I
oot for want of honor nor because thoy
do not love their families, but from
puro nosloct; us an iudtanco, etatistics
compiled by tho national authorities,
show that raoro doatlis result from
bowel complaints than any other one
cans 3, except coiisumption.yet not more
than one family in 6is are provided with
mcdioines that will reljove or euro the
dlKoasca. It Is tho duty of every mnu
to look after the?o small matters f and
protect their families, and they ere cer
tainly a-t least, guilty of criminal care
lessness ff they negloct to do so. No
one can plead poverty in this Instance,
8s the best remedy there la for the pui
pose only costs but 35 cents. The article
we refer to Is Chamberlain's Colio,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. It it
a certain cure for cramps, colio, cholera
ruorbiw, dysentory, d'an-booa, bloodj
fiux, cboloi'a infantum, end bowel com
plaint in all its forms. No family can
afford to he without it during the sum
mer months as frreat suffering and even
life may bo saved by it beforo a physi
cian could bo summoned or medicint
prooured. Do not delay, but procure U
at once, before it is i'orgoUon.
How is it with you?
Do you roliob your foodf Is your di

TETTEB AND SALT-liHEUIt
The Itching and smarting of these
diseases causes almost perpetual mis
ery, but that can bo relieved almost in
stfttit.lv by applying Chamberlain's F.y
and Skin Ointment, and its continued
application has cured a groat manj
bad cases. Try a 23 cent box and yot
will bo surprised as well as delighted

Th Rich and Poor.
Tb riehmit man it very poor
If he hT. naught but gold
No wish but to inoreaaa hi. .tore
And bars hi. name .nrollod
Tpon the list of wealthy men
No pity for hi. kind,
"Whilo brooding In hit Roldon don,
To lor. aud mercy blind.
No trusted friend lit at hit board
II. ownt not kith nor kin ,
n. think, of nothing but hit board,
And ploy lifo't Bn to win.
And when li. dlot lif.'t Raw. It o'er
Ab, th.u what it be worth?
Just what tho boggar Is no more
Namely, six feet of earth.
The poorest man i. rich enough
Compared to woaltbj Div.t,
If ho be made of batter staff,
Aud on his labor livot.
Ho livos his life from envy free
And oovots no man's store,
And in his heart sweet charity
Is rooted to the core.
IIo has known tho touch of potorty,
lias felt the sting of want,
And struggled bravely to get froo
From hunger grim aud gaunt.
And so he hns a heart to feel
For others on the sod
And this Is' wealth, substantial, rol
A wealth that oomes from Uod.
The worst thing that has yet been
said about Torroll's break in his ded
ication oration, ia tho followiug from
tho Galveston Nows:
Some of tho Mexicans indignantly
complain that during tho oapitoldod
iention eeremonica at Austin, when
Gon. Moxia waa present and listoning
as an mvitea guest ropvosonting ihb
country, the welcoming orator of the
occasion ungraciously boasted of the
triumph of Texas in tho conflict with
Mexico, thon under the dictatorship
of Santa Anna. Thoy soemed to for
get that Gon. Mexia might have
smuod at the recollection ot tne ora
tor's efforts whon he loft Texas and
joined the Vuse of a foreign poten
tate who would have brought tho
Mexican people under the dominion
of an imperial and foreign dynnsty.
Mnvif-n ban rpneatedlv broken the
chains of military despots, and when
ber cities were occupied and ner ter
ritories were overrun by a great
European array, reinforced by a
crowd of fugitivos from the United
States and by ambitious native cuiei
tnins and their followers, the liberty
loving Mo-tioan pooplo, lad by tho
heroic Jaurez, achieved a final victory
for thoir weak but indomitablo re
public, and forever cstablifhod the
freedom and independence of thoir
race and country. General Moxia
could afford to leave to hintory the
vindication of his country from any
dispiirging allusions by those who
had served Maxmilian. The victory
of the Mexican pooplo had boon most
nirrnnl A former adherent of tho
Maxmilian ompire might have boon
supposed to be tho last porson who
could afford lo glorify over Mexicans.
Still the congratulatory address which
Gen. Mexia. it is understood, had
propared for tho dedication ceremo
nies was never spoken. Probably he
had no time to modify it to express
his hoarty appreciation of the unex
pected turn the debate had taken.

I am writing this at "Cook's Lmcor ho

trees and shrubs, and wotUd be a oharni
Ing retreat anywhero, but here surround
1 by thu hot mud hovels which make up
an Egyptian village, with the burulng
sands and uterllo mountains close by, It (s
simply delightful. Wo are tbe onlv oocu
panta; bavo tho whole houso, do what wo
pleaso, and .hall huvo It with regret. In
valids In search of health could ept-nd a
month or two hero not only delightfully,
bnt lu this wondrously dry atmosphere
most advuntonoously lit many claseea of
complaints. I need etuto only three fact
to show tho raildlty of ovaporntlou hi
Upper Ftrypt. Vtttor too warm to drink
Is put Into a porous Jar and placed In ho
wiud, though In the sun; In a half hour It
Is an cool as good spring wut r. At night,
exposod to a oroeno, even when tho brovice
Is rathor warm, before morning It becomes
almost lco cold Tho night of my arrival
hero I took a pouring bath on a balcony.
Tbo wind was balmy, but froeh. Tho
rapid evaporation so chilled mo thut I
could not stay out long enough for my
bath. At the foot of tho cataract wo
took a owltn In tho Nile. Wo woro our
luulorclothos for bathing suits. Wo bung
them up before our Btatomoms to dry, In
ton mlnutoa they wero dry enough to b
worn. Wo bare nil heard of tho univer
sal hnbltnf all Afrlenna to anoint tlinnt
selves with oil, and travelers speak of It
as a naaty habit. H l. howovor, nocea
sary In vory hot and vory dry climates to
provent tho cracking of tho . skin. Au
English olllcor told mo tlmt during tho
hot winds on tho Upper Nilo his bunds
and face chapped worse than thoy ever
did in a cold climate chapped even to
TUB WIND. AND THU FMK8.
I bavo found fresh white butter quit ens
pleasant on my hands as on my toast. Tbo
boys bavo felt no Inconvenience from tho
winds. My haud aw vory sensitive to
tho effoct of a dry, dusty atmosphoro. At
Assouan wo were In the Btin during two
days. Wo did not use our umbrellas, our
pith hats being oulto comfortable, and
yet wo woro Just on the edge of the
tropica. It has Ivwn rather too chilly to
lie down on tho top of our Uttlo steamer
fur any eonftiilcrublo time at night. Wo
bavo had no muHoulto curtains on our
boat, and huvo needed itono, the breozeou
tbo wator malting them unnocoafuiry. It,
takes a hatd blow, however, to hoop flit s
away Tho pertinacity of an Kgyptlim l!y
la boyoud that of any other living t-rt-a-ture.
The natives never brush them
awy They doom it bad luelc to do ho.
Flloa at-e never rtrivon from a baby's face,
aud It tiooa not stm annoyed by thorn.
Its fa- 1m rarely washed, nnd is eo dirty
that It affords admirable fpra;ro ground
for hundi-eds of the Uttlo brutes.
1 watched a child of about 2 1-2 years
wijoylii a cruBt of bread. There was
nlKiilt. it a swarm of fliea, and 1 do not
e:::,'ffei-atj when I say two or three
doiMMiii woro on Its fuco at one timo lu
patches as Wg as a half dollar aliout tho
eyes and mouth. It would wcrow up He
c.ytvi whon they threatened to go In. I
thought Botno must have gonn Into Its
month with tho broad. It did not soem
at. nil annoyed I saw a sleeping cMM on
tho stroot whoso faeo woa almost, black
with thu Inseots. It untiled as if angola
wsro whispering' In Its ears 1 have son
men talking ploastuitly tagetlier wlillo
a (l(i7.i;n l!lo3 would be promenading about
their fiwos, apparently unnoticed by tho
owners i;f tho faces. I askod a man how
ho could Btund it,. "Mnshollahl They
don't bother mo," was his reply. This
has rando the fly bold and ho Koems ut
terly unablo to uudorstnud what a for
cigrler incuns when ho t ries to di-lv'o htm
off. Ho has, too, remarkably prehensile
claws, and keeps them keen and sharp
whon taking constitutional walks ovor
European coiinteuaaeus. It was probably

Tbo IdiBtlseopo Is an affair something
like a book rover with a shoot of olaai to
place of loaves of tho book. Tho fact on
which tho instrument claims Its useful
liras Is that when tho bony fcibrlo of tho
head of any ono haa reached maturity
not t ber the Iris of tho eyo nor tho area, of
measnromont of tho faells perpendicular
undergo poreeptlblo alteration. Thorofore
obtain an authentlo photo, taken after a

They bavo a strange way In this Uttlo
placo, I found, of betrothing tho girls to
the young men boforo tho latter leave tho
town. As very few of them nro ahlo to
either read or wrlto. long years pass by
without a word from the lover or ''spoza '
roachinfr the patient girl at homo. It la
not a rare thing to moot horo young cou
ples who wore engnged for ten, twolve or
oven fifteen years before fortune was
siiiDrlently favorable to rdlow them to
raan-y. Ono cannot soon gat rich on
thirty cents a day. aud thnt la tho wages
of a man in Capri. Thia Is, perhaps, tho
reason why no many men loavotho Inland,
leaving tho women at homo to take caro
of the vineyards and ollvo proven.
It is a very plcturesquo BCeno, these
women with thoir gnvcoHtumes, rich com
plexions, bright, llaulilng eyes, at work In

np tho mountain sido to pasture Their
foot are always bare, and become so hard
that it Is rdmply wonderful what they can
enduro. Thoy will walk ovor tflo roads
covered with pharp, flinty stones, clleib
tho rugged mountain sides, and bo quite
as comfortable as If walking on tho soft
est oarpet. In fact, for harduoss, tholr
feet rosemblo theme of the western girl,
who, wheu told by her mother that thoro
wob a red hot coal under her foot, drawled
out, without .moving an Inch, "Which
foot la It under, mammy?" Vet tho feet
of these women are by no moans mis
