An Intelligent Dog.
Mr. W. L. Caudle, the popular
Stewart at the Pacific, is the owner
of a very intelligent dog which
he has taught to do many amus
ing tricks and to perform useful
services. This dog is a daily vis
itor at The News office, where he
brings the copy for the daily bills
of fare to be printed and is highly
esteemed. He was written up in
The News some time ago and
his intelligence and good qualities
highly commended. Mr. Caudle
is responsible for the following
extravagant statement, which is,
however, vouched for by Mr. Sam
Treadwell, foreman of the job de
partment. He states that the
write up was read to "Dude" and
it gave him the big-head so badly
that he could do nothing with him
for several days afterwards. The
next day he started the faitkful
animal to the office as usual with
the copy, but instead of bringing
it he determined he would take a
lay off and hid it in an old black
smith shop several blocks away.
When he was sent after the work
which was supposed to have been
finished he refused to go. Upon
investigation it was found that he
had not delivered the copy that
day and was given a whipping, for
dereliction of duty, and directed
to produce the copy. This lie
did in short order and by putting
on an extra force the work was
run off just in time.
It is also said that he is so fa
miliar with the names of three
of the compositors of the job de
partment that he refuses to deliv
er the copy to anyone except the
one his master names. Caudle
declares he will never read The
News to Dude again.
Card of Thanks.
The very hearty thanks of the
Young Men's Christian associa
tion are tendered the kind friends
of the Waco Female college who
rendered such an amiarble pro
gram at the monthly social recep
tion last Monday night. They
are always ready and willing to
lend all possible assistance for the
advancement of association work
in this city. The first of the
scries of "Practical Parlor Talks",
to young men, took place Saturday
night, D. H. Hardy, Esq!, speaker.
On next Saturday night, Dr. M.
L. Graves will give a health talk.
All young men are invited, and
will be benefited by these plain,
well studied and practical addresses.

lwus strolling on tho Fourth
street, which is tho Boulevardo of
Waco, last Saturday, and was par
ticularly Btruek with nu exhibition
of clothing and men's furnishing
goods. This display was so great
and attractive, I thought I was in
Paris, and began jabbering Fie 11 ah
to several parties who wore near
mo. I could not realize evou nftor
being awakened from my lauciful
rovorie, that I was in Waco.
This attractive display is ren
dered more attractivo by being
shown in tho largest plato glass
window iu Texas. .Not a sign nor
a mark appeared to show whoso
house it was, but when I cast an
oblyjuo glauco into tho nearest
doorway, I discovorod tho hand
some face and jolly figure of my
friend J. Hansel Wood nnd his
brother Dero Wood. 1 also dis
cerned Geo. Yarbrough smiling
like a suu-boam, and several other
salesmen, who were busily engaged
in showing and selling goods.
They had suits of every descrip
tion on their counters. Spring
suits, summer suits, marriage
suits, divorce suits anil every kind
of suit imaginable except rejected
suits, convict suits and libol suits.
George Yarbrough said there were
some rejected suitors there, but no
rejected suits.
I wandered in bewilderment
through tho spacious storerooms,
and although I kept my hands in
my pockets, one of tlio clerks kept
his eye on 1110. I suppose ho
watitod to see if I was well pleas
ed. When I reached the roar end
of the building I saw, or thought
I saw, a largo opening into anoth
er apartment, wnich looked as gor
geous as tho first. I concluded
to walk in, but a mau who looked
vcy much like myself stood in
front of me and wouldn't get out
of tho way. I tried to pass him,
but ho remained right in front of
mo all the time. 1 then heard the
salesmen laughing, aud one of thorn
told 1110 not to walk through the
This embarrassed me considera
bly but I continued my rounds
and became more and more en
chanted as I looked through that
vast stock of goods and examined
tho frescoing and fine work on tho
walls aud ceiling. The shoo de
partment was complete, tho hat
department more so aud tho fur
nishing goods department made
mo sigh for a raise in my salary.
I remain od nearly an hour, and
saw somethiug now and attractive
every timo I turned my head. I
am considered very truthful and
am willing to risk my reputation
for vera ity on the statement that
there is not a handsomer store nor
n handsomer stock of goods in
Texas than is now being shown
by the J. Hansel Wood Shoo and
Clothing Company. There may
bo a few people In Waco who havo
no faith in my claim for truthful
iioss, but thoy will havo, after vis
iting this store. It is complete
and neat; it is novel; it is interest
ing and attractive; it is an orna-

colored, were united in the holy
bonds of wedlock by Justice J, N.
Gallagher at noon to-day. It was
a case ot choice between matri

chose the former. The bride,
though considered, by her ac
quaintances of her race, quite a
belle and unusually comely, , she
had upon this important occasion
a sour expression upon her face
and seemed undecided, at first,
whether or not she preferred single
wretchedness to double blescd
ness. She however, became
reconciled to her fate and the
knot was securely tied.
