A Young Girl Quits Hor Home in
Yoakum and Files to Waco.
Ono day last week Mayor McCul
looh reooivcd a letter from Mrs. Mc
Laughlin in Yoakum, Lavaca county,
inquiring for her daughter, a young
laoy with dark eyes, dark hair, a tall
and gracoful figure, prepossessing in
appearanoo and probably very reti
cent as to her past history. Of oourso
this was not the exact language used
in the letter, but it was ol the samo
import and the kind hearted mayor
took in tho situation at once. Tho
lcttor was turned over to Marshal
Noill and a sjstemutio search was
cotumen ed at once. No trace of the
young girl could be tound and the
matter was partially droppod. On
Saturday morning last a carriage
drovo up to a boarding houso
in this oity and a yung
woman alighted and entering the
houso asked for lodging f r
herself threo days. TLo landlady
gave her a room, and in answer to a
direct question tho new arrival said
her namo was Roaa Leo. She was
given a comfortable room and when
she was called for breakfast the next
morning sho answered that she was
ill. Upon investigation tho landlady
found that her now lodger was encicnte
and she at once began to question her
about her relatives and friends. Miss
Rosa told her that her mother lived
in Yoakum, and the landlady today
wrote her abcut her daughter. Somo
other friend had writon, howover,
and last night the mother arrived
nearly distraoted believing hor daugh
ter lost forever. Tho polioo woro put
to work and at about 11 o'olook IV
'iceman J. S Hall found tho girl and
tho poor heart broken mother was
guided to her bedside. The meeting
was effeoting in tho extromo. Tho
sobs of the daughter, mingled with
those of her mother and it is safo to say
that all of the sins of that poor girl
wera forgiven and that although sho
may be overwholmed with shamo,
a mothers love, infinitely sublimo,
would shield hor from shafts of every
Mother and child left this afternoon
for thoir homo at Yoakum.

Mr. A. Jackson, an old resident of

nificent new hotel at Rusk, informs us
ho had not slept at night for years
excopt in short naps, owing to inoeB
sant coughing. Ho was advised when
very muoh run down to try Ballard's
Horolnund Syrup; ho was immediate
ly relieved of his cough and his rest
improved to such a degreo that ho
could sleep soundly all night; Mr.
Jackson states: "I regard Ballard's
Hcrohound Syrup suporior to any
Cough Syrup on the market, and its
freedom from opium and morphine
leave no constipation after using it.
For this reason alone I consider it tho
best cough syrup in tho world for

than thoy havo beon for yoars. This
syrup is very soothing to tho throat
