SKBH8 LIHKUAL: CORUhSPONDENCK BY MAIL Ort. WHIR I'HOMPTLY ATTENDED TO. BUSINESS STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL. GULP DISCOVERED. Texas the. Rival of California. We take the following from an ex ehango: There is to be found at Itookport a museum oforos and pro ducts of Texas. Among theso is a box containing two fino bujohes of oranges. One bunch ot twelvo beau tiful oranges was grown by that en terprising gentleman and eminent lawyer, Major W. S. Dugat. Wo will give their history in the Major's own language. The tree from which thoy were taken was brought from California in 1886 and was 18 inches high, It is of tho celebrated man darin variety. In I889 it ripened three oranges; in I89O it ripened aevonty; and in 1891, or the fourth year of its Texas habitat, it ripened 24C splendid oranges. Major Dugat farther states that tho Japanese Per flimmon sueceded well last year. It blooms in November and ripens in March. Tho other bunch of oranges sent by Mr. Doughty was grown by his son-in-law, Mr. Don Teas. These oranges are splendid specimens; in deed for quality and size they cannot be excelled in any country. We re gret that tho variety is not stated. Mr. 0. P. Eidson, sends Prof. Attwa tor a bottlo of Mustang wino of the vintage of 1831. These products sent by the above named enterprising and pro gressivo gontleraon to the Hookport museum nro now carefully labelled and arranged in tic exhibit of the coast counties of South west Texas and reflect ireat credit on the producers." If the Rookport lands produce oranges, tho land alono is worth $500 per acre, and if it is near tho city of llockport it should bo worth what su burban lands aro always worth as com pared to those distant from commercial centers. These lands aro cheap, and TexaB should encourago tho culture of this golden fruit. If land is good for oranges and also near a city which has every reasonable prospeot for be coming a first class seaport, the far seeing man will profit by the experi ence of Peter MoLelland, J. W. Mann, Dr. McGrogor and other wealthy men Look to any oity in this or any other country, and tho wealthy men aro thoso who owned land in it boforo THOS. DUOELBY Us suburban lands began to enbanoe in valuo. llockport for oranges and gold. She WnlteilT'our Yenrs. Nrw York, Jan 11. Tho passengers gathered in tho Pennsylvania railway station in Jersey City were treated to a sensation. A handsomely dressed blonde was being led through tho waitingroom by an elderly gentleman of fino presoneo to a Philadelphia train which was on tho point of leaving, when another hand somely dressed woman not u blonde rushed up behind them. "Hal" she shrieked. "I have been waiting for years for thus chance. Now I have got you I'm going to punish you!" As sho spoko sbo drew a rawbido from beneath her cloak and commenced lay ing it about her right and left. First it was a cnt on the face of the pretty blonde and then one for the face of tho man who was with ber. Sho struck with tho ferocity of a tigress and with tho skill of a peiou who had been practicing her part The blondo woman succeeded finally in making her escape to the wait ing train, but the man and his assailant were taken by Policeman Steele to the station bouse. Tho woman was arraigned on a charge of disorderly conduct, and paid sho wiw Mrs. Ellen Brotherton of 271 West One Hundred and Twenty-Sixth street, New York, and that tho man was her hus band. Beyond saying that sho had for years suspected her husband of being on terms of intimacy with tho woman who was his companion, in tho station she refused to mako known the story of her wrongs. Her husband was likewise prudently silent. Ho even paid tho ifo fine Polico Justice O'Donuull imposed on her and then took her to Now York presumably on the way homo. skiii-cmrtins. Nkw York, Jan. 11. The first of a sories of operations of skin-grafting was successfully accomplished at Bellovne hospital, a mother bravely giving part of hor own skin to cover and heal a wound on her child's head that would not heal. Mrs. Annio ' Muench is the woman's nauio. Last Octobor her 12-year-old son set fire to his clothing while playing with matches and was terribly burned about tho head. Despite the efforts of doctors and nurses the skin re fused to grow over tho wounds on his skull, and tho physicians almost gavo up all hopes of over curing tho boy. Finally they thought of skin-grafting and adver tised for volunteers. Nono came. The mother, who is a fine, healthy looking woman, then offered horself as a subject. Sho is a poor woman, with five children, and it was a strugIo for her to desort hor brood, but kindhearted neighbors when told tho talo consented to take chnrgo of tho littlo ones and the mother gladly uccopted their offer. Professot Ilotchkiss performed tho operation. Ho laid bare a surface of about six square inches on tho woman's body. It re quired an hour and n half to complete tho operation. Mrs. Muench passed through tho ordeal bravely and smiled when sho regained consciousness. The o-Mration was so successfully accom plished that Professor Ilotchkiss thinks it may not bo necessary to perform another. IllB l'lre Hear Montreal. Montreal, Jan. 0.

To bo swindled out of your goods by customers whom jou consider trust worthy, is bad, but all who sell on credit must expoot to suffer such losses To bo robbed by burglars or highwaymen is worse; still jou have aright and a chance to defend your self, and if you succeed to send a bullet through a robber's brains, you have rendered a valuablo eeivice to society. Worst of all is to bo robbed Ly a trusted cmployco, a confidential olerk, in whom jou Jplaco too mmh confidence. It is impossible to carry on any business without trusting in the honor of employees, and exposing yourself to robbery. I have been robbed in this wiy by my former book keeper, Charles Werner. Any information disclosing his preseat location, will be properly rewarded, as I shall spare no pains nor expenso to make him face a Waco jury. Since New Year, trade with mo has been very brisk. My men have worked their fullest capaci ty. I have come to the conclusion that the peoplo appreciate the faot of having in their midst one of tho lar gest, best equipped and best managed hardware stores in tho stato, where they always can find what they want, and securo the lowest prices, either in small, or wholesale lots. Yours for hardware, E. Stradbs. TREATED AS A TRAMP. An Impecunious KnxlUhimm In HnnlLnck at llidepuiuU'iU'C, Mo. Kansas City, Jan. 11. George Thomas Beasley, a young Englishman, is just now tasting tho sweets of Ameri 'can freedom. Last September and Oct ober E. Steino, tho undortakor, employed Beasley. The young Englishman was steady in his habits and saved somo money, which was sent to his sister in England. "While here, so says Mr. Steino, ho was a regular attendant at tho Lydia Avenue Methodist church. In all ways ho deported himself in a gentlemanly manner. In Octobor ho left Mr. Steino's employ to go to Higginsvillo, where a friend had promised him work. Ho got there and wont to work in a coal mine, but found tho labor too hard. He had only enough money to pay his way to within twenty-five miles of Kansas City and determined to walk tho rest. I11 a letter received a few days ago by Mr. Steino, Beasloy says that when within five miles of Independence ho mot tho county chaingang at work on tho road. Ho says that ho was promptly arrested and tho shackles put on his legs. Ho was taken to Independence and thoro broke away from tho deputy marshals, but was recaptured) taken beforo Justice of tho Peace Prowitt and Nov. 11 was sentenced to servo 120 days on the county roads, which sentence huijs npwfccrving out on tho rock pile. f? Tho letter to Mr. Steino was tho first intimation tliat gontlemim had of Beas loy's troublo. Ho was asked to send a fow cents so that "iho prisonor could buy some soap, as ho had had only ono picco in forty-six days. The Englishman says: "I was trying to savo enough to bring my sister here, and now have to givo my timo for nothing." Independence has tho nanio of being a hard town on tramps. A majority of the cases beforo tho justices of tho peaco thero aro for vagrancy. The firemen will give another, grnnd hall Friday nieht Jan. 15.
