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

Tho Marlin Democrat says: "'It
docs not rcquiro an cxara session of
of tho legislature to elect Mills sena

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

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

Tho largo artesian well on Webster

the Bell Water company, increasing
the supply of that company to about

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
