WACO DAILY NEWS, FEBRUARY 8
2 Pears5 Soap Why is Pears' Soap the best in the world, the soap with no free alkali in it sold for 15 cents a cake? It was made for a hospital soap in the first place, made by request; the doctors wanted a soap that would wash as sharp as any and do no harm to the skin. That means a soap all soap, with no free alkali in it, nothing but soap ; there is nothing mysterious in it. Cost depends on quantity ; quantity comes of quality. All sorts of stores sell it, especially druggists ; all sorts of people use it, espe cially those that know what's what. hIIWI iTTTII I irTlitTMIf tliSjww HBeeHu Dfctexai R. CHRISTOPHER.

Jlllli, Primary elections ro almost inva riably accompanied by fraud and cor ruption. Therefore tho will of the people is defeated by them. The nomination of David li. Hill as the ohoico of tho nntjority of the Democratic party would go a long way towards proving that tho hard things the Republicans have said about us are true. Tho report that tho Cleveland Dem ocrats in Now Voik will hold a oon vontion in opposition to the Hill snap judgement, is in all probability a Re publican canard started by tho New York Sun. The antf-Hill Democrats in Now York should iuke their Gght in tho primaries and in the state con vention and what thoy fail to aocom ( plish thore tan safely bo left to tho na tional convention at Chicago. Some of our state exchanges have forgotten tho gentle. reminder from our ostoomed oontetuporary, the Day, a few weoks ago, and now and thon a paragraph is oreditcd to the Day that tlrat sentillated in tho oolumns of this paper. Of course, these things aro not done intentionally. Just a littlo oarelessness, you know. For instance here is one from tho Fore Worth Mail : "Waco Day : The differonoo be tween Hill and Mills ou tho silver coinage and tariff reform questions is that Mills is for silver ooinago and tariff reform while Hill is for prosi dent." And this ono from tho'JIouston Post : "And here is another pointer. A dispatch fromjValley Mills Bays: 'A test vote was made by our business men for oonator, resulting: Mills 11, Cul berson 15, Chilton !,' This is about the proportion of the popular voto eaoh would get if the raoo was mado for senator before the people Waco Dy." Both thoso paragraphs appeared or iginally in The News and woro never printed in tho Day. A JOKE ON THE HILUTES. Nearly a month ago a special dis patch was sent from" Washington to tho Hill organs recounting a scene in tho house when Hill, at tho oloso of an executive session of the sonate, put on his hut. and buttoning his Princo Albeit coat oloso about him, strolled quietly over to tho houso. Mr. Hill entered quietly at tho north door, says tho dispatch, and although thero was a hot dobat'o in Dprogross, when Amos Uumininea saw him, Amos said. 'There's tho governor," and that a number of others recognised Mr. Hill at tho same timo and by a common impulse left their seats to crreet him. Tho dispatch said a great deal more; it wont'on to tell how tho bustness of tho JtoutfO was ohopped right square off and oven the speaker himself made a break for a shako. The faot of tho business is the Hill worshipers were tho only members struok by that "common impuUo" and thoy were the worst sold out sot that over wont fawning beforo. Tho following dispatch to tho Now York World Feb. 2 explains it all: Sonator Hill has a doublo in Wash ington. He is ono of tho oorps of assistant doorkeepers stationed at the main door of the houso of representa tives. The senator himself rooogn'ited the strong resemblance on a receut visit to the house wing of the capitol and commented upon the faot to sev eral Democratio members. As may be imagined, tho double's head is as bald on top as a billiard ball, with a fringe of black hair. His face, like that of his distinguished prototypo, has tho bamo round fulness and his mustache has tho same twist at the corners of tho mouth. Ho wears the double-breasted frock coat and has an impressive bearing. He is frequently pointed out by guides as the senator, and is often saluted by new members with a "Good morning, governor." Hon. lloger Q, Mills is report ed to have said in a speech at a banquet given in his honor by the New York Reform Club Fri day night that he would oppose the standstill policy proposed by some of tho Democrats in oongress and soout ed the Ilil' idoa of going baok to the tariff of 1883, He would follow how ever whorovor tho flag pointed to freo trade. He would follow the flag no matter who carried it and he would fight wherever tho battle was pitched. Of course the New York Sun, Atlanta Constitution and tho San Antonio Express will shriek "free trade" afur this, just as if they had not shrieked tho same shriek many times before, without clioiting a donial from Mills. But Mills being a Democrat will go on prcaohing Democratio doctrine and demanding a Democratio government, and byo and byo the Ropublioans who will not be converted will all go into the Republican party and the Demo crats will get together and eleot a president and a congress and turn tho rascals out. This'is offioial. A free for all race for county offi cers would bring tho 0000 Domooratio voters in MoLonnan county to tho polls' and our delegations to the state conventions wonld bo almost doubled. Interost in the county canvass would bring everybody to tho polls and when once there would voto for tho Demo crat nominoo for governor. Hereto fore, under tho primary election re gime a largo numbor of oitizens fool ing sure that the Dcmoortitio nominee would be eleoted, would not tako the timo to go and vote. There is but ono way to bring our representation up to what it should bo and that is by a lroo for all raoe. Tho Craft says: 'W. D. Ward an nounces that, owing to meager sup port, ho will bo oompelled to inovo the Reagan Herald to some other point." It has boon suggested that Mr. Ward let tho paper stay where it is and change its name. DAWSON'S GAME. A SI. l.ouln Drummer In the Hole of IIIkiiiiiIkI. Hawesvim.iv. Ky Feb. 8. The great est sensation that lias been produced in tlits county for years is now at its high est point in and around Bkillniun station, about live miles from here. In a large two-story brick niiiunioii on a beautiful farm lives John H. Robbins. a highly re spected and prosper otts fanner, who has raised a large and interesting family. most of whom have married and settled ai omul the old home except Laura, tho belle and beauty of tho family. In tho Mimuier of IShl) J. T. Dawson, who rep resented himself to bo an agent of a St. Louis range company, called at tho Hob bins mansion and for soveiul days par took of its ltopitality and was intro duced to Miss Laura. In a short time ho returned, and it was plain that all his attention was directed toward tho fair daughter of tho host. Filially an at tachment sprang up between them. A marriage followed r-oon after, and the couple left for Wichita, Ktis., where they lived happily for a short while, and from there went on a tour through tho south and returned to the Robbins homo in April, l.SSK), where Dawson persuaded his wife to remain, telling her that bis company had . decided to send him to LuroiH) on business, and that he would travel through England, Franco and Germany and be gone probably a year or more. In a reasonable time t-lio received a letter from him, dated and postmarked Loudon. Em., mid which purported to have been sent to the St. Louis firm, unfl by them sent to Mrs. Dawson in Ken tucky. Then caino similar letters from Paris, Hamburg and other points. At last, by Mime mistake, he placed the re cpiired amount of United States po.stago on the letter pot.t marked in Germany. This led to an investigation, which de veloped the fact that Dawson had never gone. to Europe at all, but is now, and was at the lime of his marriage to Mi.-.s Robbins, a man of family and living with his wife and children at Belmont, Mo. Mrs. Robbins Dawson, her father and brother-in-law, left here for the latter place to secure Dawson's an est. Ho will either be prosecuted theio or held until a rcquteitiou can bo obtained for his return to this place for trial. . A FAIR SLEEPER. KlRlitt-m Iciiitlii Without Aituhtiiiliiff A l'UAtlu tit Plij ilckins. LndianaI'oijs, Feb. 3. A most re markable case of long sleep exists hero in the Mate insane asylum. The subject, who is u woman, was seen today, and the authorities say she has been sleeping a year and a half. Her emaciated hands were folded in her lap, and her faco bad the deathlike pallor of a corpse which was heightened by her .straight black hair brushed Mraight back from tho forehead. Her eyes were elo-ed and only the regular heaving of her breast indicated that phe was alive. Her name is Pendegrast, and she has been an in mate of tho asylum for a number of years. About a year and a half ago she bhowed signs of drowsiness, from which she soon settled into a sound sleep, nnd it was inipossble to awaken her. Hei eyelids can bo opened by force, when her big black eyes stare into space., with no gleam of intelligence, and a sound rap on the head or the keen point of a pin makes no itnpresMon whatever. Milk is her only food, of which she is given about threo quarts daily, by means of a rubber tube in her nose, Tho sleoper sits in a rocking chair in one of tho cor ridors during the day, as oblivious of her Mirroundings as though in her allotted six feet of earth, aiid at night she isv car ried to her bed. Tho doctors cannot ex plain the ca.se. Y . A Lang Drouth HnilTrii. EaolkPass, Tex., Feb. 8.
