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
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.

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

praise, m this particular, is ascribed to
tho careful attomion of her physician,
Dr. J. H. Sears, who attended her

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.
