Pears' Soap People have no idea how crude and cruel soap can be. It takes off dirt. So far, so good ; but what else does it do? It cuts the skin and frets the under-skin ; makes red ness and roughness and leads to worse. Not soap but the alkali in it Pears' Soap has no free, alkali in it. It neither red dens nor roughens the skin. It responds to water in stantly ; washes and rinses off in a twinkling ; is as gentle as strong , and the after-effect is every way good. All sorts of stores sell it, especially druggists, all softs of people use it ANNOUNCEMENTS. County (Ifficrrn. "Wo are authorised tn nnnounen Mr. J.

Sinoo the publioation of tho Reagan-Gerald oorrespondenoe considera ble intorost has been manifested here as to what effect it might bavo upon the shattered norves of that member of Chairman Heagun's official family upon whoso vitals tho Fantods ar knawing. Tho following dispatch was reooived by a gentleman this morning in answer to an inquiry in that diroo lion : "Austin, Tex., Feb. 10, 1892. "Thanking you for kindly interest in my unfortunate brother Uriah Suf ferings, can say that while there is no itopo of ultimate recovery from tho dread diseaso, ho is though 'unable,' still ablo to draw his salary with that patriotic devotion to the public ser vieo that has over characterised his official career. Signed "A. Heap." EVERYBODY SMILE. The following from tho Now York Sun makos us laugh beg pardon, it makes us smile I ! : "Both tho llav. Josoph Cook and the Hon. Roger Quarles Mills wcro in town last night. It is soldom that so much missionary zeal is found even in this town, to which all the talents are drawn. Tremont Tcmplo is, of course, a very dlfferont plaoe from tho houBo of rcprosontatives, but tho Bos ton Monday Locturor and tho Corsi oana Cobden both oarry on an educa tional campaign. Both are poaitiye and doginatio, paesionato and vehe ment, burning and boiling. If Mr Cook has tho more learning, Mr. Mills has tho hoavior repartee If Mr. Mills is the handsomor, Mr. Cook can be hoard further. The maiu dif ference among many minor differences betweon tho two is that tho Bostonian is a goneral roformer who wants to smash things in general, whilo tho Corsicanan concentrates his destruc tivoness upon the Tariff. "A phrenologist who examinod Mr. Cook's head whon that head was worn on youthful shoulders, gavo this chart: 'Is fond of applause; has much vor bosocess and faculty of speeoh; is given to repetitious, is confident and loud. I adviso that he follow the calling of aa auctioneer.' "An inferior strolling phrenologist who examined Mr. Mill's bumps early in 188S wrote enthusiastically: 'You have the biggcBt head I havo ever seen. Your oombativoncss, well-do-velopcd self-esteem, and tonaoity indi cate that you would have BUcooeded as a policeman in a wostcrn town if you had not taken up another field of public life' "Yet neither combativeness nor self esteem is moro developed in Mr. Mill's than in Mr. Cook. So much for phrenology." Oh, what a fortunate thing that the same phrenologist did not oxamino the head of the Now York Sunl Tho oxposure would havo been humiliating to the people whom tho Sun supports. STRICTLY IN IT. The local newspaper has so many missions to perform that it is often tho caso that said local paper will single-foot out on one, two or three of tho said missions to the neglect of all tho rest. For instanco, one paper may claim to givo all the local news, state nows, and tho political "ins-and-outs." Another paper will mako other claims, porhaps, as broad as these, but oovering entirely different ground or performing other missions. In tho main, newspapers arc sound docu ments. Thoy aro necessarily sound, as they form a web ovor tho country, ono is a oheokmate and oirtio of the other, and whon'ono paper'gets "out of lino" all tho balanoo fool tho effects of tho said paper being "oul-a-lyin." So tho erring brother is called back and tought to know the meaning of "straight up." The papers are great agents for good or evil, and as tho brethren know this they feel a com uion interost in the oonimon prees, and a general desiro that all papers should be "straight up," and that jus tico and truth should prevail in news papor oirolos throughout the country. Most editors aro as scrupulous as most of tho clergy. They havo not forgot ten tho precept of tho father of their oountry. Georgo W. was always "in line" and not always "out-a-lyin," and in this the editors of today aro simply imitators. They very much revere their illustrious father and some of his tcaohings. Tho nowspaper that furnishes daily a full local and foreign news summa ry, tho market reports. Kindly but keep personal montion, wholesome, useful and interesting misoellany, and is at tho same time an expounder of the gospol of truth, tho exponent of tho people and their sentiment, the upholder of right beoauso it is right, and the censor of wrong booause it is wrong wo are going to say right horo, unblushingly, that suoli a paper 7B this is a power in the land To ondoavor to plaoo a propor estimato of tho value of suoh a shoot to any community would bo a task for which but few aro fitted. Tho nowspaper is tho balancing weight of tho world. Today with oliuroh, tomorrow with state whero truth and juBliae aro, there the news papst will be found. Its shafts of criticism aro sent fast and doep into tho vitala of wrong, uud sooner or later it triumphs, and juBtice is vindi cated. The Evening News is endeavoring to covor all these points, and whilo it is enabled to walk boldly between justico and meroy borrowing of neither but disseminating both yet it is always gratifying to us to b ena bled to dieeern in tho mists that arise daily from the battlcGclds of life that light, that beacon light of approval and public upprcoiation whioh lures one on to moro victories and greater achievements, and which nerves one to the full disohargo of duty.
