9 What is wanted of soap for the skin is to wash it clean and not hurt it. Pure soap does that. This is why we want pure soap; and, when we say pure, we mean without alkali. Pears' is pure; no al kali in it; no free alkali. There are a thousand virtues of soap ; this one is enough. You can trust a soap that has no biting alkali in it. All sorts of stores sell it, especially druggists; all sorts of people use it iwwc SJa&JUr l&fetass R. CHRISTOPHER. Editor and General Manager.

LLANO BESSEMER ORE. From the Manufacturers' lleoord tho following is taken and respectfully submitted to the propor eommittco of tho Waco Board of Trade "Mr. 0. E. Lyman, president of tho "Wakefield Iron and Coal Land Im provoincnt company of Minneapolis, Tvbo, in connection with others largely interested in Lako Superior mining properties, is also heavily interested in the great Bessemer ore properties in Llano oounty, Toxas, in a private lotter to the Manufacturers' record pays Wo consider tho future outlook for tho Llano iron rango very bright in deed, as that quality of oro is very seldom found, and will boar shipment to almost any point in tho Unitod StateB, as well as to other countries. The Manufacturers' Record has boon informed, bat not officially, that this oro can be mined and put on tho cars at about $1 a ton, and that the freight to Galveston will be $2 a ton. At theso iiguros it would seem that it ought to bo possible to ship this oro via Mobilo to Alabama furnaces for Bessemer stocl making, as well as to northern furnaces. With such bight grado oro as this iu great abundance Texas is destined totako a very prom inont place in the iron and steel business. Tho Dallas Times-Herald reports tbo polling of tho Dallas grand jury, and then kioks at Uih returns. The votes wero as follows: Governor Hogg 1, Geo. Clark f, Ross 3. Prosidont Hill 7, Olovoland 7. Sonator Culburson 7, Mills 7. County Judgo Marshall 7, Nash 7 The TIL thon adds: "That Jury must have boon packed agaiuBt tho governor. Tho vote cannot bo claimed to bo representative of his strength here." That is rathor a slender showing, biDg only one bettor than nothing, but that would bo about tho sizo of the situation with the Waco man in tho race. Pears Soap THE GASETTPS FIND. Tho Fort Worth Gazotto is evident ly disgustod at its oompleto failuro to array tho Demoorats of Texas against Roger Q. Mills and affects to have discovered that, "arrangements aro now in ooureo of preparation to snatch tho senatorship as the prize of junning for Mr. Mills, without so much as referring tho matter to tho pooplo. Tho plan is to bkillfully avoid a disoussion of Mr. Mills' pol icies, to shovo him in on tho wavo of sympathy orcatcd by his reomt defeat, and by tho votes of legislators not chosen to eleot a senator, and then to trust to tho advantago of being in to hold tho plaoo in the contest befce tho people. If this be not tho pur pose, why is Mr. Goorgo Clark called on to manage his campaign?" Tho peoploaro managing tho cam paign for Mills, and thoy are going to put him in the United States sonato in spito of tho iofluenco of tho gang that defeated him for speaker, whieh influence is through tho Gazette, trying to defeat him for tho senato. That gang, headed by D. Boss Hill, is always afraid to trust tho people. It was so, in the speaker ship fight, it is so in the doliborations of congross. From 1S8S, until the fall cleotions dosed in I89O tho slogan of tariff reform was carried into all tho doubtful states, and at tbo head of tho lino of battle was Iioor Q Mills. Ho was over found shouting in tho cars ot an anxious people mat ex cesivo taxation was unjust texation, and he pledged a reduction to a rov onuo basis if his party was given the power. The result was a completo viotory so tar as a congressional elec tion could make it, aud the house of representatives camo up smiling with ouo hundred and forty Dcmocratio majority. Long before thoy met, how ever, tho aforesaid gang had oauscd to bo whispered in tho ear of nearly every representative, words of warn ing egainst Mills. "Mills is too radical," they said. "Ho will ruin the Democracy's chances of winning the prcsidoncy." Tbo people wero following Mills alright, but it didn't suit D. Boss Hill for them to follow anybody else exjopt Hill, and more than that, the song Mills sang for tariff reform would prove a funeral dirge for protection. With the aid of other protection Demoorats. Hill defoated Mills for spoaker,and witl the aid of the Fort Worth Gazette and one or two other papers he is trying to prevent tho pooplo of Texas from honoring him as their representative in tho senato. The Gazetto adds : "Why tho hurrah oampaign begurf'in his bohalt, and why the abuso of pa pers for merely quoting his vievs upon livo issues?" Tho people have a porfoot right to hurrah for whom thoy ploaso, and if tho Gazetto will quote his views correctly no friend of Mills will abuso it. It calls the meet ing, last Saturday, a "jumped up meeting at Waoo, managed by Mr. Clark and by men wLo hope to profit by Mr. Mills' elevation." That meeting was advertised two weeks and as a representative body has had no superior at any timo in any oounty in Texas. Was tho meeting Saturday jn Erath county a jumped up meeting? Was that a jumped up mooting at Brenham more than a month ago whioh nomi natod Soaroy for tho stato sonato and instruotod him unanimously for Mills? There has been numerous smaller gatherings in various parts of the stato and thore will be more, and thoy will got biguer. Tho Gazetto's plan is to prevent theso moetings by making it appear that a sonator will not bo elected by tho extra session. Thoro may not, bo an extra session, and if thoro Js it may oonoludo to not eleot a senator, but tho Democratic masses intend, that if an extra scssirin is oallod and a senator is elected, that senator ah ill bo Rogor Q. Mills. Tho Gazetto had just as well prepare to take its niedioino. A determined effort to boom Nioaragua Canal stook has brought forth muoh litoraturo, and divers plans for breaking into Uoolo Sam's exohequor. Tho latest is a propo sition from a correspondent of tho Manufaoturar's Ileoorj, for tho United States government to take a hand in opening up this connection between tho AtUntio and PaoiCio' by way of immitatinjr New York in tho Erie Canal onte,prizo. Tho correspondent says. "To accomplish this, it might bo considered advisablo to buy tho pot petual right from tho company pass ing through tho cam1, froo of toll, all tho tonnago and freight of tho aoasting trade, evon if wo pnid tho onormous prioo of one hundred million dollars of 2 1-2 per ooDt. bonds, pay ablo in 30 yearn, and at the same time guaranteeing protcotiou to tho canal." As tho total oost of construction is estimated by too Engineering NowB in its roport last soason at $65,000, 000, and as thi3 is diolared by tho correspondent quoted to bo twioo, what tho samo work is boing dono under contract in his state (Wost Virginia) the proposition takon iu oonnootion with tho deouration of lion Warner Miller in a spoeoh baforo tho New York Chamber of Commorco, a month ago, that it would tako prob ably $100,000,000 to oompleto the job, unfolds a schomc oompared with which tho Credit Mobilior steal pales into insigni6oinoe. Tho con gressman who votes for a proposition to open tho oaoal at government expense, and givo in addition to tho completed canal, $67,500,0u0 of tho people's money to a private corpora tion, will bo in lino of promotion under tho Republican regime, but woe unto him if he bo a Demoorut. HON. JOHN P. ST. JOHN. The Distinguished Kansan Delights an Audlenceat tho'City Hall. At tho oity ball last evoning a largo and intelligent uudietce greeted Hon. John P. St. John, who delivered an address which will bo long remembered a an effort second in sound und logic al reasoning and eloqnenco to none ever before listened to in Waoo, on the prohibition question. The speak er was introduced by Dr. J. B. Cran fill, the leader of the prohibition party in I'cxaf, in a short speech. Mr. St. John starlod out by saying that ho was oharged with coming to TVxas to defeat tho Hon. Roger Q Mills for tho United States senate, aud denied tan charge. He said ho was not ao quainied with either of the aspirants ter sonator in Texas and had no choice between them. To him a Demo crat was a Democrat and ho wjb against them all; to him a Republican was a Republican and be was against them all. The speakor went on to espouso tho oauso of prohibition and to the large audience, mostly pro hibilionUts, it was a treat the liko of whioh has not been enjoyed in Waoo for years. He said thero were in this country 210,000 saloons and plaood in a row would reach 9OO miles. Thero was $1,280,000 spent annually for liquor, and would load wagons enough to string out a distance of 750 miles, reaohing from Waco to Kansas Oitj. Mr, St John is opposed to fho pro teotivo tariff, and his position on that question was plainly and forcibly stated. He was applauded through out with a vigor that showed en thusiastic appreciation of tho manner in whioh tbo speaker handled his subjeot. beware of Imitations Of MoAmbter coal.
