tionery. Thbrb is no use denying tbe fact tbat
this oountry has been very badly "setback"
for a few years past, so much so that it will
require another year or two of good crops
to brim it again to the front. But though
for obviom reasons mouey is still very close,
tbe outlook for the future is very good-
Let everybody look ahead instead of back

A Change.
Mr. Geo. W. Donalson retires from the
firm of Geo. W. Oonnlsou A Co., hardware
dealers. By close attention to busiuess he
has fairly worked hi way to au independ
ency, and now, like a wise man, he con
cludes to no longer devote hiruself to a
business so laborious and exacting. We,
In common with his many other frieudN,
congratulate him on his happy deliverance.
Mr. Charles Hntohings, who succeeds to
the business of the late firm, and who will
hereafter conduct it, is a thorough and
methodical young man of bnsiness. He
will no doubt conduct tbe bnsiness success
fully and to the entire satisfaction of the
old and new patrons of the house.

Editor Fbbb Pmbss: I tbiuk the plan
outiiued in lost week's Fbbb Pacas, for pnt
tiug the Chautauqua on n solid basis a
tfood oue, but it will ueoesxnrily bike time
to get a sufficient amouut of stock subscrib
ed, aud iu the mean time, we ought to pro
vide fur uuxt summer', programme.
Dr. DuBose said, so I am inforiU'-d, that
for five hundred dollar he could give us a
better programme than we have ever bud.
I propose to be oue of fifty to giro ten
dollars for the programme. I believe more
than hulf tno amount necessary can be
raised Inside of a week, if some one will
take hold of the matter.
I would suggost that Judge Fisher take
tbe matter iu hauri. If this plan does not
suit, lot us have a ineetiug of tbe oittzeus
aud adopt some pluu that will insure a
good programme for next summon ?
The remark is sometime, beard, "tbey"
have moved our Chautauqua to George
town. This i. certuiuly a mistake. The
hill is still hero, tbe taberuacle is still here,
the river is still here, aud the fouuders of
the Chautauqua are stll here; aud what Is
better , they Intend to stay here.
From the uoUe aud nouseuse that we
hear, oue would thiuk that the S m Marcos
people would wake up soma fiue looming
an! fill tu it odrtuu rovord'il gutleuaeu
bad tiik n the whole business np bodily
and lumped it dowu ou the buuks of the
San Gabriel.
If cert liu men want to go to Georgetown,
in the name of common sense, let them go,
and peace go with them, and to toll the
troth we haven't many tears to shed at the
parting. The idea of a state Chautauquu
was conceived by Dr. DuUoso and uobly
set ou foot by tbe whoie souled people of
Siiu Marcos, nnd now to heur it said by
men who b iv'ut a dollar's interest iu Sm
Marcos, "we've takeu your Chautauqua
away," it makes me tired. A. A. Tho.mis.

claimed to be present. Santa Claus made

Beware of Ointments for Catarrh that
Contain Mercury,
as mercury will surely destroy the sense of
smell and completely derange the whole
system when entering it through the nincus
surfaces. Such article, should never be
nsed except on prescriptions from reputulile
physicians, as tbe damages they will do are
teufold to the good you can possibly derive
from them. Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufac

coutains uo mercury and is taken internally,
aud acts directly npon tbe blood and nincus
