WACO DAILY NEWS, JANUARY 18 1892.
Pears' Soap Agreeable soap for the hands is one that dis solves quickly, washes quickly, rinses quickly, and leaves- the skin soft and comfortable. It is Pears'. Wholesome soap is one that attacks the dirt but not the living skin. It is Pears'. Economical soap is one that a touch of cleanses. And this is Pears'. All sorts of stores sell it, especially druggists ; all sorts of people use it. j&qc 32iJLtj 3&fcXXJs R. CHRISTOPHER. dltor and General Manager.

"I a in for free couiiuorco with all iiiitlniiN." Thoinuw Jelfumon. There is not a drop of any kind of water save the pure artesian article porved to tho people of Waco by the water companies now. Surface wolls arc boing abandoned and the pooplo will all soon depend on the artesian wter. Thero is wisdom in tho suggestion that more stringent rules bo adopted in the insano asylum. Tho editor of tho Gazctto will proably bo an inmate within a few weeks, and his insanity appears to be of an exceed ingly violent form. Tho Marlin Democrat says: "'It docs not rcquiro an cxara session of of tho legislature to elect Mills sena tor. Ho oan bo elected at any ses nion." That is the sizo of it. The Btrugglo will be short, sharp and deoisivo, and then the great Corsican will walk in with tho soalps of a dozen or so Texas Tammany braves. Mr. Springer in a speeoh beforo tho Jackson club iu Now York, Jan. 8. said: 'I can stato without any fear of successful contradiction, that there is not tho slightest probability of a free coinage bill beoouiinf; a law during thia Congress, nor is thero the slight est probability of any amendmeut be ing made to tho existing law on that subject." Hill said in a speooh in Albany Deo. 31, that tho prosent con gress must not pass a free coinage bill. Yot, the Fort Worth Gazette, with the gall that oould only bo in spired by a Tammany bravo, is shaieking in leaded editorials that Mills must bo dofeatcd for tho senate because ho opposes tho agitation of tho silver quostion, though ho is in favor of frco coinage, and at tho same timo the Gazetto poses as tho organ of Hill and Springor and tho balanoo of tho Tammany crowd. The Fort Wotth Gazotto has evi dently hoard something "drop." In editorials with reforenco to Mills have in tho last few days shown less vonom than heretofore. It oven finds it nccoBsary to administer a mild rebuke to a Corsioana correspondent for being "unduly 6evero upon Mr Mills." After having "sot tho pace" in a vioious, acrimonous war on Mr, Mills, in which misrcprcsentHtion and vitu peration wore present in evorjr attack it is not strange that man snob as signed him-clf "A Democrat" from CorMcana would enlist for service This aaonumous cnomy of Col. Mill wroto to tho Oazeetto under date Jan. 12, and the lottor was published Jan. 16. Ho charged that Mr. Mills ' had during his long publio career been without a definite polioy or an orginal idoa." This idea of Col Mills might bo oallod orginal with this anonymous enomy, for nobody ever hoard suoh a oharge made against Col. Mills boforo. His refer ence to Mills' silver rooord is in line with the Gazettes unwarranted and untruthful chaiges against Mr. Mills Tho Gazetto shonld not scold its correspondents who talk aftor it, but as beforo statod the Tammany organ has doubtless beard something "drop". Tho largo artesian well on Webster and First streots, oouiplctcd Friday night, is tho monarch ot tho Waco geysors. This is tho eighth well for the Bell Water company, increasing the supply of that company to about 7,400,000 gallons. With tho three artesian wells of the Waoo Water and Power company, the Padgitt well, tho Prather well and the Kellum well Waco has fourteen goysors flowing tn tho aggregate 11,000,000 gallon of pure thermal water every twonty-four hours. Waoo is tho Geysor city, and no mistake. Hod. George Clark's speeoh at tho mass meeting was brief, but it was pointed and put tho issues in tho sen atorial noo squarely beforo tho peo ple. Oar readers will find it in full in this issu of Tub News. Some months ago Commissioner Foster, with tho aid ofTuuNEWS, camo out for oongress. It is now be lieved that Mr. Foster emerged too early and failed to see his shadow. The NEWnhas met several converts to tho Mills oolumu sinoo tho mass mooting Saturday. Mill? stock took a tromendouq bound on that day. Fran Leslie's Popular Monthy for February, ltiohard J Hmton's finely illustrated paper on tho great Colorado Desert, and a delightful descriptive and romi nisoont paper upon "Ilistorio Haunts and Homes in Now York," by "Felix Oldboy" (tho lato Col. John F Hines), are the leading features of Frank Les lie's Popular Monthly for February. This midwinter number has an excep tionally brilliant list of contributors, including, beside the already named, ltupyard Kipling, MrB.

CLnvr-iiAND, O., Jan. 17 John An derson, who is held horo under charges of robbery and bigamy, rind who has been rapidly gaining a woildwido repu tation owing to his numerous matrimo ninl alliances, today heard, through tho polico, of four moro women, residents of as many different states, who wish to claim him as thoir lord and master. This makes a total of fifteen wives for Anderson. Four othors hayo at diifotont times since his arrost put in claims upon his affections, hut investigation Bhowod that they hnd either been wholly mis taken with regnrd to his identity or that breach of promiso damages woro tho most that thoy could expect to gain from him. Liko their sister sufferers the women heard from today all complain of having been robbed of largo sums of monoy by Anderson, who in each caso left tho ladies to shift for thomselvcs t boou as ho could gain possession of their pocketbooks.

Tho excite ment occasioned by a gas explosion which wrecked David Dillon's hnura last night hnd scarcely mibsided and men were still at work removing tho debris from tho Dillons' ill-fated residence when another deadly explosion rent tho houso of William Shivley on tho oppo site sido of tho fctreot where Dillon's stood. Mr. Shivley, wife and daughter, wero seated near tho firo discussing tho previous nccident at tho time. Miss Maudo Dillon at the moment was lying in an adjacent room sufforiug ncuto agony from terriblo burns and wounds, sho having been carried to Shivloy's from tho wreck of her father's houso. Tho Anderson firo dopartmont being on tho Bceno, wns already prepared to proven t tho flames from spreading, while citizens with willing hands toro to pieces tho wreck of Shivloy's houso in tho searcli for tho bodies. All wero recovored with out fntal injuries, perhaps, save Misa Dillon, who, now that sho had been through two explosions, will probably die. The Demi Prince. London, Jan. 18. Preparations for tho funeral of the Duko of Clarence are being mado on all sides, at Sandringham, by the railway companies and ut Wind sor Castlo. Tho body of tho Duko will reach Windsor Tuesday.

Stihtrrrunciin Vires, Wariiknsauko, Mo., Jan. 18.-A party composed of J. H. Miller, Wm. Millor and W. H. Hood, while out hunting Wednesday discovered, ten miles south east of here, what they claim to bo natural gas. Smoko was seen rising from the gronnd on top of a hill. Tho earth around tho top was cracked open, and aftor digging down about threo feot they found tho earth to bo heated to a white heat. About half a milo south of this was found another such place, and as thero is nothing that indicates tho presenco of any substanco that would burn, they think it is gas. Tho odor given off smells liko gas, nnd as tho heat grows greater and tho area larger, tho neighbors have fears as to what tho re sult will bo. DaliKornusly Drowsy. Virginia, 111., Jan. 18. John Roborts of Beardstown, who is in tho county jail of this city charged with burglary, fell asleep last Sunday and every effort to arouso him has proved futile. Ho was taken suddenly ill last Sunday and tho county physician was called. Tho doc tor gave him a powder for nervousness. After taking tho medicine ho became drowsy and as ho slept all this week without onco awakening, notwithstand ing ho takes food when placed to his lips. Ho is growing weaker. linker Ittupltcd.
