A 6ro last night about midnight, destroyed the Elks' opera houso and three other two-story stotie buildings, the entire quarter blook oorneriog on Third and Main streets. Optra noaso and con tents a total loss, estimated value 32,000, partially insured, tho building adjoining, oooupied by J. G. Long, tinner, and contents also a total loss, parti&lly insured. Next building in tho oourso of tho fire ws vacant and is a total Iobb abd the fourth building, known as the Witoher corner, oooupied by Mrs. Yates, general merchandise, also totally destroyed; loss on building or stoo'c not yet known. Tho east wall of tho opera houso fell outward and a largo part of it struck upon the roof of a largo one-story stono building, just aoross a narrow alley, owned by Capt. A. H. Barnes and ocoupicd by Mo Henry & Ballard with a heavy stock of clothing, breaking in tbe roof and greatly damaging the stock and build ing, but to what extent is not yot known. It is impraotioable to give a definite report so early after tho fire. Tho fire originated in the opera build ing np stairs near tho stage, but how no one knows. Owing to weak pres sure of tho water at the beginning of tho fire tho fireboya oould do nothing toward cheeking tlio flames until the four buildings were doomed.

I Tho need for an institution for, helpless women, has been long felt boro in our oity. t Without work, des titute, homeless, and friendless, any one, and especially a female is our object of pity. From tirno to timo thcro are such among us. B'or tho last few months a city hoapiul has been opened, and is accomplishing great good. More oati bo done. Some of tho ladies f Waco have determined to establish the institution to meet this demand. Whether it ia to be oallod a "homo," or "sheltering arms'' or what shall be its name, or limitations has not jet beon deoided. Thoso who have the matter in haud are tho best guarantee of its suoocss Their dosire is to draw togother to as sist, all, who feel for human want here at our doors, without regard to creed or chutch association. It is believed that our good women, our business, men, our clergy, indeed that the citizens goriorally will rally to the support of such an or ganization, and that this will be a beginning of noble charitable enter prises, whioh are not only ornaments to a city, but whioh constitute a neoessary part of our modern civiliza tion. In our day, thero must be organiza tion to assist the needy. Individuals are apt to bo imposed upon, and private ohirity fails most generally to accomplish the good deeired; wo there fore ask the cooperation of all in this undertaking; that at least you will look carefully in to tho whole matter when it is brought before you. In formation regarding the wholo subject can be obtained from Miss Rotan, Miss Ida Itishor or Miss Minnie Tay lor. An Important Event. Mr. Lon Black will leave tonight for San Antonio to bt present at tho wedding of his friend Mr. Charlie C. Ress and Miss Barbara Muench. The important event will take plaoo at tho residence of the bride's parents, N'o. U08 Matagorda street and will no doubt bo a grand affair, the contract ing parties being both deservedly pop ular. The bride is a oharming belle of tho Alamo oity and well known, from character, by Tue News reporter, and tho groom a former well known and highly respected resident of Waoo, whero ho has hosts ot friends, but now a prosperous ottison of Eagle Pass. Soon after the festivities are over the happy pair will take their departure tor their future home on the two Grande. The News wishes thorn a long, happy and prosperous life. A Serious Charge. A complaint was filed this morning in Justice J. N. Gallagher's court against Oscar Meyer, charging him with assault with intent to murder Chris Nelson. The facts are that the parties had a difficulty and in the souffle Nelson had his leg broken. He was carried to "the city hospital where he now lies, it is said, .at the point of death, with but little hope of his re covery. Meyers was arrested by Deputy Sheriff Standifer and is nop in the county jail. He is a carpenter, by trade, and lives with his family on Jackson street. The injured man was formerly barkeeper at the Blaum sa loon on South Eighth street. Mayor's Court.

Iluvidwon Defend tlio You 11 u HI e 11 unci doe It Handsomely. Bei.ton, Tox., May 5U. To tho Dallas News In his spoooh 1 1 this place yesterday Governor Hogg said that ho had employed lawyers to pros eouto tho gamblers in Austin, and that while previously the university stud ents and others were open in their games of ahanoo with tho professional gamblers under tho brilliant glaro of the cleo trie light from one end of Congress avenue to tho other, now the Capital citv, so far as gambling is oonocrued, is as pure and spotless as tho driven snow. Without questioning tho gov ernor's right to interfere with tho mu nicipal affairs of Austin, any more than ho should with any of our other cities, and believing what bo tells us about the extreme purity of Austin at the present time, I cannot seo why he should have spoken in derogatory terms concerning tho utiiverai'y stud onts. To say that tho students of the university wero regular partioipants in gambling would leavo the impres sion that out of a body of 300 somo ton or fifteen or perhaps more wore in the habit of spending tho greator part of their time in that way. Nothing could bo farther from the truth. I know of no bettor proof of this asser tion than the faot that previous to the governor's aotion concerning tho gamblers. Dr. Waggenner, chairman of the faoulty, received tho heatty indorsement of every pastor in Austin as to tho morality and exemplary oon duot of the students. Visitors to the Capital oity frequently express tho sanio opinion, or, if one wishes to inquiro raoro olosely, lot him ask the polioo force in Austin, who certainly know about theso things in regard to the'eonduot of the students. Ho would find tbat out of the vast num ber of students thathavo been attend- iog tht university from year to year never has there been more than two or three that wero addicted to excessivo drinking and gambling, and whero is thero an institution in which we do not find one or two black sheep? 1 here is a popular impression that the students of the university of Tex- as are a set of sports, and it may be that the governor thought it would be to his interest to express that opinion. This, I think, was very unjust. Why did he not speak of the railroad em ployes or the young businessmen. They certainly did more gambling than the students ever did. Again.it lmy be that the governor has received the popular impression in regard to the morality of the stu dents and has never yet had. time to acquaint himself with the true state of affaits. If so, we most humbly beg his excellency's pardon and would like to say that the university of Texas is the home of the poor man's sons. Many of the students .are working their way through. Here we have an institution richly endowed, equipped, with chemical and physical labora tories not to be excelled in the south, with a faculty of eminent American scientists and scholars, free to the youth of Texas. No earnest, industri ous student, who is in sympathy with higher educatipn, should fail to take into consideration the advantages he d nut to him by our own institu tion, the university of Texas.

When Napoleon was first consul of France, Uotirriennc, one day just before the eastern campaign, came into tho cabi net utvtho Tn'leries unil found a large mnp unrolled upon the carpet and Napoleon titretched upon it, moving pins about that were tipped with red and black bealing wax. Uounienne very soon saw that the red represented the French and the black tho Austrian forces. lie watched tho progresi of tbe pin campaign in bilence, but with the deepest interest. Having conducted t lib maneuvers to a biiccessful termination, Napoleon looked up at his secretary and said, "Do you think I shall beat Mi-lasf" "Why, bow can I tell?" replied Boar ricune. "Tell, you .simpleton, look herel Melas is at Alexandria and will remain thqre until Genoa surrenders. His magazines, hospitals, artillery and reserves are in Al exandria. Passing the Alps here," said lie, sticking a pin into tho great St. Ber nard, "I fall upon his rear, cut olT his com munications with Austria and meet him In the valley here." So saying, ho stuck a red pin into the plain of ".Marengo." Bourrienno looked upon the moving ot tho pins as mere, pastime, and was so in credulous that Napoleon rolled up the map, exclaiming playfully, "Oh, you ninny and goosel" Ten weeks later Bourrienno found him self writing up the battle of Marengo, at Nnpoleon'.s dictation, on the very spot where, he had placed the pin, and recalled tho circumstance with wonder at his fore sight that bordered on reverence. Wide Awake, Ilobert lti-oirntiiK's Courtaliln. As wo ull know, it wits Mr. Keuyon who first Introduced Robert Browning to his future wife, nud tho story, as told bv Mrs. Orr, is most romantic. The poet was about thirty-two years of age nt this time, in the fullness of his powers. She was sup posed to be a continued invalid, confined to her own room and to her couch, seeing no one, living her own spiritual life, in deed, but looking for none other, when Mr. Kenyon first brought Mr. Browning to her father's house. Miss Barrett's reputa tion was well established by this time. "LadyGernldine's Courtship" was already published, in which tho author had writ ten of Browning among other. poets ns of "somo pomegranate, which if cut deep down tho middle, shows a heart within blood tinctured, of a veined humanity;" and one can well believij tliat this present meeting must have been but a nhu.se, in an old and long existing sympathy between kindred spirits. Very soon afterward tho poets became engaged, and they wero mar ried in tho autumn of tho year 1840. Who does not know tho story of this mart Inge of true souls? Hal not Mrs. Browning herself spoken of it in words in delible and never to be quoted without sympathy by ull women? while ho from his own fireside has struck chord after chord of manly feeling than which this life contains nothing deeper or more true.
