We arc credibly informed tbat the panhandle pcop'e are looking confi dently forward to the time when tbey expect to become a separate State. It seems to us altogethor likely that such may in time be the result. Judge Wood, as onoof tbe commis sion to Bolect a sito for tbe now lunn t'o asylum, saw a great deal of Texas with which be was not previously ac quainted, and expressed bis gratifica tion at finding these parts a much better couulry than he bad been led to suppose There are Btill a score or more of vacant bouses good one?, too in San Murcos; something unusual in prosperous times in the punt, at this season of the year. What is so likely to cause them to bo fillod in future as tbo erection of a suitable public school building and the establishment there in of a first-class public school? Men and brethren, think of this. Road tbo petition of prominent itizous to the (Jouuoil for now pub lic Bcbool buildings. It bad only a very partial circulation.

EuzAiitTU E. Beaty, aged 70 years, 3 months und 3 days. She was a daughter of Isano and Rebecca Julian, natives of North Carolina and pioneers of Inlinna, and a sister of tbe editor of Ibis paper. Sho was born and grew up to womanhood in Wayne county in said state. SUo was ui u-ried in 1811 to Allison I. Willits. Not long after they removed to Iowa Territory, uoar where she died. Her husbund died iu 1858 and a year or so later she married Andrew Ueatv, who survives Jier, By her first husband sbo bud several children, of whom only two, a son aud daughter, long survived. Tbo latter, a noble women, died very suddenly only a week or two previous, and thus was severed one of tlie strongest remaining ties to life of ber mother, who bud long been in fuoble health. A life of earn out consecra tion to whatbbe deemed tbe cause truth and right, after huving mini bered tbo allotted three score years and ten, closed peacefully in un wavering hope and trust in a happy immortality. She was a staunch disciple of orthodox Christanity. Her religion was ber life, the one engross ing subject of ber thoughts and the const int theme of her.couversation and correspondence. It waa not faith without works, but which prompted her to love and serve her fellow crcatun-c, and to do ber whole duty in every department of life. Her burning zeal and earnestness. Lo'A'cver ber position might be die rented from, could not but rommncd tbe respect of Lont-at niiudo.

Octoufr, 2(1, 1889. Fair notes and Other items of interest. Tliotisar.da of visitors are coming and going in our city at present, nnd every one bus n word of praise for both the fair and onr ever growing city, all are delighted with tbe music, e arm ed by the lovely painting and interes ted in the machinery, the cattle, the i.ice and everything. Tho art department is replete with finely wrought pictures, creations of ootcd artful, among the most aJ mirud are some fine figure pieces from the Corcoran gallery, vizj It. E. Lee 011 his magnificent war borat?, Albert Sidney Johnson, Jackson and Jeff. D.ivis. Tho great event of to-day was the baby show, and ninny a mother's heart throbs with anxiety nnd expeo tation, wondering if her little cherub will win tho coveted prize as being the handsomest buby. Havo von been to look at the fine stock ? You nuift not miss doing so for thero urebolsteius jerseys, dur hums, levon, hercfords nnd short hoi uh, all Texas raised stock and something to be proud of. Then there is 11 punnet array or lioraes. from the graceful trotters to the heavy draft horses. The poultry exhibit is compluto in itself und you should not miss seeing it by any nu'S.m, there nro fowls from almost all of tho fancy birds add soiiio of them are real beauties. Tho swiiio nnd sheep exhibits are vcrv cood as to quality, but tho dis. play is not so large as iu tbo other live stock departments. The groat ten-tnila rnco between XIIescs Williams of Tonekn, Kausus, and White of Texas, for a purse of $1,000 was one of tho most exciting features of last Monday. The riders chanced horses every mile, but tbe Texas girl met with misfortune, and so tbo Kansas girl won. Xbe next race, on Wednesday, the Texas girl c uno out victorious. Ex. Gov. Hubbard delivered an interesting lecture on "Japan and Her Relations with America,'" all who were fortunato in bearing it were highly pleased, Thero is something new in the wav of nlostcr and it roust certainly be a good thing, it is called adamant and is shipped m bags irom me factory and has only to be mixed with water to be ready to use. lue roan who hns charge of this exhibit says that adamant is very hard, it hardens in two hours alter it is put on the wails, it adheres to brick, stone, iron or wood and will last as long as tho building, besides it re sists fire better than uny plaster kno,vn. The murriaee and burial of Cock Robiu is a great favorite, especially with the children, it is the 6ame artistic pieco of taxidermy that at tracted so inneu attention at tue New Orleans Exposition. The cattle roping contest win 00 repeated Saturday in compliance with a popular demand, Alio prize of $100 was won by S. C. Lewis, of Taylor. Time, l.OfiJ minutes. The magnificient artistic painting "The Battle of Missionary Ridge," is attracting many visitors, and all pro nounce it one of tho most realistic scenes ever placed before the public. When one looks upon tho cauvus, it seems that the scene is actually oc curring, and it needs but a strech of imagination to hear tho boom of the cannon and the ruttle of musketry. Saturday was a big day, every body that could possibly do so, came to seo the circus, about the only thing thut 0110 can not seo in every circus wo.ro four beautiful ostriches. Tho clown got off the same old chestnuts about mother-in -laws and old maids, and we all laughed just as heartily as if we hud never beard them, every one had a dollar's worth of fun. Havo vou seen the uhonbcrapb T You mutt see it by all meaus, for it is wonderful und it only costs 10 cents. We heard it repeat a cornet solo by a member of Gilmore' band, it was iust as distinct as could be. Is'nt electricity a marvelous thing? and it is vet in its infancy. . so 1 Tho weather bus been tone all durimr the fair, so visitors will go itway with pleasant memories of vur city, (bow very fortuuato tuey aid not have to experience Dallas mud and slush.) Euolxe Ly.ns. Hair Fare to San Antonio Fair. We have been shown a circular from headquarters of the I. & G. N. aldressed to their agent at this place, authorizing him to sell tickets to San Aotonio and return at Sl.50 from Nov. 3rd to lfith inclusive. Good to return Nov. 18th. Tho official vote of North Dakota shows thot 19,500 votes were cast at tho recout election. The Republican ci ndidate for Congress was elected by a mijorito of 13,000, while the Republican candidate for Governor went in by a msjoiiiy cf 12.600. Tho majority in favor of prohibition is 1,110.

From a private letter from Seattle, of tho 17th inst, we wake the follow- ing extracts, beloiving they will be found of general interest. Ed. I took a sail on the Sound to-day with some other printers. Had an iotere.tmg trip. From tbe Sound you get an excellent view of the city whiob stands out boldly on tho aide of the bills, und also of tbe grand Olympic Mountains iu the northwest and the suow crowned Mount Itanier in the South, while at times, you cau see between tbo bills 00 which the city stands, glimpses of the Cus cade range, east of the city, and Like Washington. Seattle, in fact is sur rounded by towering mountains on tvoiy hand, aud the beautiful scenery on Lake Washington aud Lake Union, is Lard to surpass in tbe wolld. There is a printer on the Post Intelligence he is nn Englishman, who cume bore some six months ago with $5'J in bis packet and three months ago be bought a lot in tbe Rjnton addition, about ' a mile from the business purt of town, for 11,200, paying $300 cash and is to pay tbe remaining $'J00 in - one year with ten per cent interest Since he mudo tbe purchaso a new cuble car line has begun work on the street running by the property, and ho has been offered 300 tor bis bargain but will not take it I went up to see his lot tho other day. It is bountifully situated on the top of the bill where there is probably tbe grandest view in the neighbor hood of Seattle. Right in front is Mt. Ranier, and on one side you can see Lake Washington und Cascade range, and Mt. Hood, and on tbe other the Oiympio range and tbe waters of tbe Sound and a lurge part of tho city below. Ho already bas $100 suro on tho deferred payment, and ag ho makes about $30 a week and never puts on a sub, (for which he is heartily damned by tbo trumps,) 1 think he will come out all right. I have not tbe slightest doubt but that in five years tiinj he can get from three to live thousund dollurt for tbe lot. We are having exceedingly pleas ant weather here now und it may lust a week or two yet, but when the ruins set in they will lust for lour or live months. They say it don't ram hard but keeps up a steady drizzle, with perhaps, a few hours intermib sion once in a while, for the whole winter. Tins country is certaiuly unhealthy in tho wiuter, and many people die with typhoid pneumonia, etc. In tbo summer timo however, it luust be tUlightlul. Tho tremendous energy displayed in building hero this seuson is won derful in the extreme. Since I have been here, four or live weekt, dozens of brick business blocks have been erected and the city is fast being built up all over the burnt district in a much more substantial manner than before. More largo buildings havo been erected hero since the lire iu June, than have been built in the whole of tho great state of Texas during the entire year, millions of brick, millious of feet of lumber and hnndrods of tons of rock have been und are being consumed iu the work of reconstructing the business por tion of Seattle. Tho lurgest wooden hotel I ever saw is standing on of tbe bills of this city, "Hotel Rauier." It is on im meuse establishment- Six weeks ago tho spot on which it stands was a bare plot of ground. Nearly a thousand curpenters were working on that building ut one time, and the work went on night and day. Tho way the walls of brick and mortar and frames of timber go up in this vicinity immediately suggest Aladdin and his wonderful lamp. Hundreds of masons, corpeuteir, laborers, und people of all kinds and characters are here from everywhere. The mechanics and laborers as a rule have work to do, but the wet season will doubtless throw many of them out of employment. There are four or live gambling dens in full blast aud they are reaping a great harvest und get 11 large Bharo of the nurd-earned dollars of tho working men. I have bought a rubber coat and a tviir nf rubber boots und think I will get me a rubber hat, and then it can rain. I will wear heavy flannel underclothing, and as it never freezes here, scarcely ever. I don t minx 1 will have to get sn overcoat One of the best things about.
