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
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

Hookport museum nro now

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

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
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.
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

What I Know About Hardware and
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,

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

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
