The at tendance was small but all present showed much enthusiasm in tho move ment. Tho mooting was called to ordor by Mr. .1. 11. Downs, promptly at the ap pointed hour, who, in a short spcooh, stated tho object of the mooting to bo -- i i ..-:. :..i l..k co organize into a muai puuuuai uiuu, with aims and objects tho samo as the old olub, under tho banner of whioh thoy had before marohed to victory. Ho urged that in or ler to buoocss it was necessary for every member to ox ert his every onorgy in tho work, and in seleoting thoir standard bearers to bo conservative, discret and cautious. Ho further etatod that the organiza tion would dovoto itsolf solely to oity politios and in tho intorest of good local government to put iu office the very best men; that the members were expeotcd to pledge themselves to abide by the deoissions of the ma jority of the club and to suppoit every candidate thus solootod. Temporary organization was then oompleted by tho eleotion ot Mr. J. R. Downs as temporary chairman and Mr. Tom O. Plunkett temporary soorctary, A motion was made by Mr. J. B.

The nieoting then adjourned. Texas History Getting Nixed. Editor Evening Ncwd: I havo read Wm. B. Slosson's Georgia letter with great interest, but regret to see ho gets tho history of Miss Troutman's Lone Star Flag and Santa Anna silver plate, some what confused. Ho says in 1833 Capt. Miroboau B Lamar aftorward Ptesident Lamar raised a oompany of Georgians to aid Texas in her revolution and that Miss Troutman gave Capt. Lainai'j Compa ny tho "Lono Star Flag" and that Capt. Lamar and Company fought so bravely, thoy received as a premium a part of Santa Anna's silver plate and that thej returned tho "Lono Star Flag" to tho fair donor with a part of Santa Anna's plate. Tho facts ot history aro theso: 1st. Tho Texas Revolution did not ocour in 1833 but in 183G. and. Gen. Lamar never raised a oompany of Georgians but oamo to Texas alono and landed at Velasco iu March 1830 and set out alone and a foot and joined Houston's army oa tho Brazos near whero Hempstead now stands. Gen. Lamar commanded tho whole Texas oivalry force and fought heroically at San Jacinto. 3rd. Capt. J. W. Fauin did raise a Georgia Company which increased to a regimont of whioh ho became Colon el and Mi&s Troutman, a lady of great beauty and talent and they say an early sw-Jet heart of Gen. Thos. J. Rustin, did present Capt. Fanin's Company a Lone Star Flag from which the Lone Star Republio and Lono Star State took their glorious symbol. 4th. Tho beautiful flag was riddled with bullets and was captured at Coli ta and its bravo defenders marohed back to Goliad and shot on Maroh 27th by order of Santa Anna. 5. That ilag and all Santa Anna's other trophieas, captured at tho Alamo were recaptured with all Mrs. silvor plate and 812 000 in ail vor at Sail Jaointo, April 21, 1820. 0. Tho Texas government, by spec ial vote, ordorod Gon. Rusk, secretary of war, to rorurn that battle torn flag to its fair maker and donor and also present her Santa Anna's splended eil vor servico. Tho name and history of Miss Joana Troutman, who afterwards married Col Pope, should ever bo cherished by ovory true Toxan. One of our fair seniors will read at our next monthly reviow an essay or poem on "Miss Troutman and her Lono Star flag"; and should her son, Col. H. B. Popo, of Romo, Ga., or auy ot her family ever visit Waoo I suggest wo give them a banquet. Baylor University, Waoo Fob. 11, 1892. Rufub C. Burleson. An Incendiary Fire, About 12 o'olook last night, whon all the family of Maj. Charles B. Pearro were "wrapt in the arms of Morpheus," they were arousod by tho Borcaras of the servant who had just roturuod to her room and fouud nor clothing on fire. The alarm of firo wa3 immediately soundod and Waco's efficient llro department hastenod to the soene.but not until tho flames had gained such headway that the ser vant's room and kitchen, with all thoir furnituro, was entirely' consumed. Maj. Pearro is lavish in his praiso of tho firomen and thoir prompt ap pearance, and stated to a News repor ter, this morning, that in two minutes after their arrival they had the firo under control, and asoribod to thom tho credit of saving the main part of his resilience. Ono featuro of tho incident, whioh disturbod tho minds of the friends of the family, was tho serious illnoss of Mrs. Poarre at tho time, and it is a matter of congratulation that tho ex oitoment of tho oocasion did not ma 25 spot Casb s Look what you pay on orodit and sco how 1 sell tho samo artiolo for cash. credit, cash.

THAT GREAT BEAST. It Comes Near Town and Defies the Mighty HunterB. That irroat beast whioh has been pnzzling tho hunters of Waoo while roaming tho Bosque brakes, made its abpoaranoe near college heights last night. It howled, it yowled, it yawn ed and cut up didos generally in tho codar brnkcs while consternation was spread among tho inhabitants thoreof. A gentleman who resides on College heights Bays ho believes the great boast was looking for certain huntors who havo beon ohaeing it with hounds for the past soveral weeks. If this is true, tuen tnoso mighty hunters will not havo to travel .but two miles in tho horoaftor to strike a trail that will mako all tho fun thoy want. Certain doubting Thomases will novor be satis fied until that mighty beast is captur ed. Now is tho timo to oatoh it. To tho Lovers or Art in. Photo graphy.
