There are agents for some northern capitalist in the otty today on a tour of inspcotion. For sufficient reasons The New reporter is not pormitted to givo the gentlemaus name at present but if all works well he and his prin ciples will shortly become well known. The gentlomon have hoard of Waco's famous hob artesian wells and have oome here to sea if tho reports aio truo and if so what advantage Waco bus taken of the wonderful gift nature la thus bestowed. Upon arrival here they found that there was only one natatorium and a sanitanum only on paper. They in stantly saw the advantage and profit that would be derived from tho estab lishment of a Una hotel and sanitari um equipped as both a Bummer and a winter resort, and aro taking steps accordingly. Part of yesterday and nearly all of today were spent in viewing suitable locations principally in the northern part of the city. Prootor Springs and several looations on the proposed Bosquo extensions of the Hobson Line wore viewed. Of these looations Prootor Springs is possibly given the preference on ao counts of its proximity to tho oity and, as the gentleman said, because it is one of the prettiest looations for an institution of the kind proposed in tho state. If the resoit is established, and there is hardly any doubt but that it will be, it will bo mado into both a resort far health and pleasure seekers. A lake of ten or fifteen acres will be made and steam launches nw and sail boats will be placed upon it. A ipaoious swimming pool, one largo onough to accomodate several hundred people, will bo one of the features whilo ball grounds and tonnis courts will bo arranged for such as dosire tbem. Another important feature will bo a pavillion eapaoity of seating from 5000 to 7000 people. This will bo done so that when Waoo secures suoh gatherings as tho State Firomon's as sociation, the Demooratio State con vention or any of tho many large as semblies whioh prefer to oome to tho Artesian City on aooount of her cen tral location, she will havo a building capable of seating them all. This featuro will, no doubt, commend itself to every oitizen of waoo. The News hopes to be able in a short timo to givo to tho publio tho information that this grand enterprise is secured to Waoo.

Ho is a man thoroughly compe tent to disohargc tho duties of the offioo to whioh ho aspires, and if eleot cd will spare no efforts to oonduot tho office in the interest of the peoplo to whom it belongs.

NOT GRANDFATHER'S. A Wonderful Clock Tlmt Will Ho at tlio Worlil's I'nlr. New York, March 23. Charles L. Hurlbut, an "artist, living at 5J43 Pleasant avenue, ha3 just completed a clock which has cost him much labor, extending over sixteen years, Tho clock is composed of 34,000 separato pieces of wood, gathered from all parts of the globe, and contains JJ20 different varie ties. The clock is 3 feet 1 inch high, and it is a wonderful piece of workmanship. There is no paint or btain used to give it coloring, the many different pieces of wood being arranged in such a manner as to fonn a most picturesque shading. Sir. Hurlbut purchased in 1875 a scroll saw, and in September of that year ho read a description of a cane mado of seventeen different kinds of wood, and acting on tho suggestion he concluded to build a clock out of forty different pieces of wood. Seafaring men, among whom ho had an oxtensive acquaintance, were requested to bring rare bits of wood from tho foreign ports where their vessels were bound. Mr. Hurlbut's wood-gatherers in a vory short time brought him many Varieties of wood, and he concluded to increase his original limit of forty pieces to the present num ber. Some of tho wood came from tho heart of Africa; varieties were obtained from Australia, others from tho West Indies, East Indies, Hindostan, China California, South America and Mexico Tho layers of wood in soino of tho bor ders is so fine that it is necessary to use a magnifying glass in order to discern them. A figure on the right of the clock represents Satan, and another on tho left Father Time. As tho clock strikes, every quarter of an hour, these two fig ures descend from their respective win dows to an apartment in tho lower part of the clock. The door opens, and Father Timo is seon standing behind the bell with an uplifted hammer. DeatJ. in tho fonn of a skoleton stands at hi. right. Presently Father Timo raises his hammer. Death suddenly disappears and Satan apiears through a trap door in the floor. As Father Time strikes at Satan Death appears, the door closes and tho figures assume their original posi tion. Every part of this clock, includ ing the works, has been constructed by Mr. Hurlbut. He intends to place it on exhibition at tho "World's fair. Cleveland in Mlnncaotu. St. Paul, March 22. Figuros mads hero from returns from thirty-seven counties indicate Cleveland men hava already bagged onough delegates to send a solid delegation to Chicago in hit favor. Shotund lustitntly Killed.

Some lutorcHtlncr oiiitn In I lie 1)1 n(rrniliy of a l'noiiiliiciit Citizen of Witco IIoucNtr and Integrity and rinniiclnl Ability AVrltlim on Every I'urc of lli History. Editor News. As one acquainted with tho biogra phy of Judge J no. C. West from away baok, I estoem him very highly and bolievo he would in this orisis mako a safe and effeotivo major of this oity. He is a man of most progressive idoas, tempered with that sound conserva tism whioh makes tho idoal executive officer. From tho time ho oame to Texas from North Carolina in 1855, bo has always beon at tho front in laudable enterprises. In the early part ot tho war he was one of tho first to enter the service of his country and oven when sorving bb Confederate States Distriot Attorney for tho West ern District of Texas, to which he was appointed by President Jefferson Da vis, ho placod tho office in charge of a deputy and went to the front as a private soldier, and fought, and was wounded at Gettysburg and Cbioa niauga, till ordered baok to his office. In twenty years' praotiee of law after the war in Waoo, honors wore poured on him. Ho was again and again ap pointed Special District Judge, and in 18G7 he was assignee in bankruptcy in eighty-ouc cases, so great was the confidence io his financial ability and unswerving integrity. Tho probate records will show that in tho manage ment of estates he has again and again settled up estates and paid to tho heirs double the amount of the valua tion of tho appraisers. In tho last twenty years he has given cheerfully and liberally ono among the first to all publio enterprises, to every rail road, every church, overy college and other enterprises for the advancement of the city. On evory publio list his name will be found for liberal amounts and every subscription is marked paid. Judge West was tho first man to inaug urate tho grand plate glass fronts whioh aro now all tho rage in Waoo, In fact, in all publio things ho has always been among those in tho front rank of progress. But Judgo West is not untried in executive ofBoe. He was Mayor of Waco in 1875 and Judge Gerald himself made no more brilliant record in county finances than Judge West did in city finanoos. He' wont into offioo with Waoo City scrip at thirty cents on tho dollar and when he left it oity sorip was up at par one hundred cents on the dollar. Ho is in the front rank in aU progress and advancement aggressive, pushing, and vigorous, while his keen common sense and conservatism make him safo in all weathers and conditions. The writer has known him woll for two de cades. There is no man to whom the roiiiB of government of Waco in this hour could bo more safely plaood and thofe who know him best will agree with mo fully. H. M. Bought Cheap. Ono of tho largest purchases made in Waoo for some months was the purohase on Tuesday of tho entire stook of wagons and agricultural im plements of S. A. Owons & 8on, sold by tho Unitnd States marshal to the highest bidder. Mr. W. E Duproe was the purohaacr for spot oash at a very low prico. This big stock added to his own, makes tho biggest stook of agricultural implements in Central Texas at his, great houses, 101 and 105 Bridge streot. His big stock em bracos all tho popular brands of wagons, plows, oultivators, corn and cotton planters and everything oho in tho agricultural implement lino. His lato purohaso gives him a big lever in prices and Dupree's agricultural house is tho best place to bay farmers' goods in the state.

A bill has been introduced at v ashington requiring all baking powders containing alum and ammonia c, to bo so laboled. This is a step in tho right direction, and has boen long foreshadowed by tho aotion of state legislature::, boards ot health, food commissioners, etc. in this matter. The bill affords neoded protection to tho public, tor tho evidonco as to the injurious effects of alum and ammonia is very heavy; but it will nevertheless bo fought bitterly by tho manufactur ers whom it affects, who are aoous tomed to sell thoir goods as ''pure Creum of Tartar," "absolutely puro," eto. The bill is something needed. If a maker uses a drug in his powder, he Dime of whirh hn flnpa nnl- tunnt tn havo printed on his label, it is prima facia evidence that there is something wrong. Wo hope tht subject wi'l bo vigorously prosecuted all over tho countrv. not onlv as regards bakin. powder, but also all other food udul- torations. This bill may incidentally benefit tho makers of Duro artiolos. but if it should, this is only an additional point in its tavor. Who Will Win? Tho voting contest at Galveston is growing in interest. Waco's candi date is keeping pace with tho others and will come to tho front on the home strctob. GALVESTON.
