(AUSTIN TERM 1883. J
Synopsis of Opinions or the Supreme
BKPORTKD BY ED. J. HAMNEB.
Parties desiring Information upon matters
concerning the higher courts will receive such
by writing our court reporter. 1
Pointer and wife vs. Flash, Lewis
& Co: from Dallas county. As appli
cants did no avail themselves of the
remedies provided to secure the de
sired evidence, the application for
continuance was properly overruled.
The officer in his certificate having:
stated that it was eiven under his
hand and seal, it will be presumed
that the original contained the seal
omitted in the certified cony. The
court having determined the bulance
due, and rendered judgment therefor,
foreclosing the lien given thereon and
ordering the land to be sold to pay
the same, tnere was no error. Al
armed. Watts, J.
Wooldridze vs. Griffith et al.; from
Lamar county The law of 1876 giv
ing a right or appeal rrom a mayor s
court to the county court, did not pro
vide that when the piincipal failed to
appear the county court could render
judgment against the principal and
sureties, and a judgment rendered
therelore is void. Applicant claim
ing the land by virtue of a sale under
Bucn a judgment, nis uue laua.
lirmed. Watts, J.
Loomis et al vs. Tumey et al; from
Travis county. The allegations of
the petition and the amount in con
troversy showing that the district
court had no jurisdiction after the
constitution of latn went into eitect.
this couit has no jurisdiction to hear
the appeal and the case is reversed
and the lower court ordered to trans
fer the cases to the respective courts
to which they belong, lievt-rsed and
remanded. Watts, J.
Ferris vs. Streeper et al; from Gray
son county. Appellant having pur-
chased-the property in controversy
3m the defendant in the suit pend
ing the litigation, he had the right
to assert his rights and secure, if pos
sible, a new trial after judgment
against his vendee and he might as-
I sign any errors committed in refusing
him a new trial, but he cannot take
advantage on appeal of any errors
committed on the trial as against
parties. Affirmed. Watts, J.
Elaton vs. Jasper; appeal from Col
lin county. As the record does not
show the nature of the suit, nor the
pleadings, nor contains a statement
I of facts or bill of exceptions, the court
cannot but say that if there was any
i error committed that it was abstract
; error. Nor can it be seen that the
court .below had jurisdiction. Af
firmed. Walker, P. J.
Langton et al vs. Mulhall et al; ap
peal from Ellis county. The objec
tion that the petition was not endors
ed as required by law, not being rais
; ed in the lower court, cannot be avail
ed, of here. The certificate of the
clerk to the acknowledgment of the
wife not stating that the instrument
-was funv explained to ner was iatany
Hfo-lieversed and remanded.
La Belle wagon works vs. Tidball,
Van Zandt & Co.; from Tarrant coun
ty. The act of March 24, 1879, did
' not and was not intended to repeal
the act concerning fraudulent con
veyances which were in force in this
state from the days of the republic to
the present time." Hart Dig. Art.
1451, llev. Stats. Art. 2405. Assign
ments for the benefit of creditors
coming within the scope of the act of
March 24, 1879,are governed by its pro
visions but in all other cases the
ancient statutes of 13 and 27 Eliza
beth, from which our statute of
fraudulent conveyances is borrowed,
and almost literally copied, is still in
force 'here, or the law in general
applicable to such cases, see 15 Tex.
189; 23 Tex. 53. Reversed and re
manded. West, J.
fgwyvfe Co. vs. Jones; from Dallas
CountjXhere was no error in the
court in striking out the amended
answer. A motion to strike out
might properly be disposed of on the
motion docket before the trial, or be
fore the announcement of readiness
for trial. A party announcing ready
before the objection to the interroga
tories is disposed of does so at his
peril. The affidavit for continuance
lulling to show such diligence as made
it a matter of right, it was in the dis
cretion of the court, without a clear
abuse of which we cannot reverse.
Taylor vs. Campbell; from Collin
county. There being nothing in the
... record, which we can consider as a
statement of facts, and the burden of
proof being upon appellant by the
' general denial of appellee, we must
presume he either failed to make the
necessary proof or that the proof of
appellee rubutted that offered. In the
absence of a statute fixing the period
of limitation, it would seem that the
longest period prescribed as a bar to
reiil actions would bar an action for
i ypecilic performance of a contract to
convey land. Affirmed. Stay ton, J.
Jones and wife vs. Carver and wife;
r'roni Dallas county. A written agree-
went for the sale of land must con
tain the essential elements of a con
tract, expressed with such certainty
as l.o'be understood without the aid
or parol evidence. The most impor
tant element of the contract is that
which identifies the subject matter.
Without it is clearly expressed in the
contract, or unless the land is so ex
pressed in the contract as to be easily
determined, a specific performance
thereof will not be enforced. Affirm

Pathological circles have been cheer
fully given of late to the discussion
of consumption. Koch's theory of
. i jictenal causation of tuberculosis

i.icts and assumptions extensively
criticized. The importance of
i-hthisis is best illustrated by the sim

That Texas Lie.
At Williams' Ranch, Texas, a mam
moth meteor fell upon the house of
M. Garcia, killing him, his wife and
five children. It "covered an acre of
ground and is still steaming." As a
sample spring lie, gigantic and unnec
essary, this will pass. It will hardly
be news to add that that timid and
instantaneous liar, Joe Mulhattan,
late of Kentucky, is making Texas
feel natural in the absence of Con
gressman Tom Ochiltree.
Senora Diaz's Diamonds.
Not even the famous display of
diamonds made by Mrs. Astor, ot in ew
York, at two receptions in Washing
ton in 1880, excelled in lustre those
worn by the wife ot President Diaz,
who has on one of her bracelets a
single scone of twenty carets, as well
as other smaller solitaires. ims
bracelet is composed of several tiny
bands of gold linked together, form
ing several rows, each having a dia
mond on it. Her earrings have each
two very large solitaires, one below
the other. One set of diamonds
which her husband presented her
when they were married, niteen
months ago. cost 825,000, and includes
earrings, brooch, pendant, necklace
and tiara for the head. Another set
was a bridal present from the present
president of Mexico. Senora Diaz is
very young, more than ordinarily
beautiful, and highly accomplished,
speaking English with the greatest

Our neighbor of the Evening Post,
in reply to anxious inquiries, says that
there are a good many reasons for re
garding the girl dude as a possible
future social type. The reader must
imply from this that the girl dude
has not yet appeared, which is some
what confusing, for most sufferers by
the dude have discovered that the
creature may be of either sex, and
that the female variety, instead
of being evolved from the male,
was the original form. It is im
possible lor any observing man
in society, no matter how old
he may be, not to recall from his
earliest social experiences the memory
of a woman, and everywhere from
twenty to forty, whose dress and
manners were conventionally correct
and tame, whose gaze was bland and
meaningless, and whose husband, if
she married, sometimes drank himself
to death, but was far more likely to
elope with some other woman, to the
utter astonishment of his wife. Only
conceit, ignorance, serenity and money
enough to dress on are necessary to
the production of a dude; can any one
be so blind as to deny that the gentler
sex possess enough of these qualities
to entitle it to representation t

... New York Evening Fost.
The dude is evidently the social suc

dandy, but the type i3 a very differ

social interest in him mainly centers.
The fashionable type which preceded
him the fops and dandies of our
fathers' and grandfathers' time, and
the swells of our own were evolved
in an "environment." They devoted
themselves to fashion, but it was in
a different spirit rrom that shown by
the dude. They regarded exaggera
tion and total extravagance as a le
gitimate fashionable aim.they brought
buoyant animal spirit to the task.
Any one who looks at a pic
ture of a fop or dandy of fifty years
ago will see tnat overdoing tne mat

important, the more display he made,

successor, the swell, at any rate, down
to a short period since, inherited these
traditions, though he did not improve
upon them. He struggled against his
fate. Peptop trowsers helped him for

A Silly Girl Saved by Booth.
fNew York Star.l
Speaking of the persecutions of ac
tors reminds me ot a very pretty
story regarding Edwin Booth. It was
while he was playing at inter Gar
den that a young miss in her teens
fell desperately in love with him.
She was the only daughter of wealthy
parents, and night after night she
would make some excuse to leave
home and go to the theater. She del
uged Booth with love letters, and
finally he wrote to her, telling her to
meet him at the stage door at the end
oi tne performance on a certain night,
She was there according to appoint
ment. Booth handed her into his car
riage and gave some whispered in
structions to the driver.- The horses
were driven rapidly and in a few mo
ments the young girl found herself
in front of her own home. The car
riage stopped and Booth assisted her
to alight. Taking her arm in his he
walked with her up the stoop and
rang the bell. It was late, and the
gin s iatner, wno naa Decome very
anxious about her whereabouts, open
ed tne door. When he saw her in the
company of the actor he started back
"Mr. said Booth very quietly,
-i nave Drougnt your daughter noine.
She has been very foolish, but she has
promised not to do so again, and
would advise you now to take better
care of her." With these words he
turned and left. That young girl is a
happy wife and mother now, but she
never tires of telling the lesson she
received irom tne great actor.
The man who is not too much
wrapped up in his business, and there
are few who are, to cast a critical eye
upon the well-dressed woman as she
passes him on the street on these al
leged spring days, will doubtless
notice, that her style of walking has
changed for the better. He may not
stop to ponder upon tne reason or
the improvement, and perhaps could
not discover it if he did, but he never

The heel of a woman's shoe is a lit
tie thing and sometimes considered
insignificant, but it is of sufficient
importance, all the same, to change
her gait and alter her whole appear
ance on tne street or in tne ball room.
One of fashion's decrees that has for
some years been adhered to is that the
heel of a woman's shoe shall taper off
to a pencil point and be placed in the
middle oi tno loot, 'i'fce result has
been that her shoes have proved or as
much aid in walking backward as
forward. The gait made necessary
was accepted because it was fashion
able, but it never was admired.
Men admire a free and graceful
gait in women and it is undoubtedly
the chief desire of women to attract
the admiration of men. The change
in fashion which has taboed French
heels on women's shoes, will give
them another chance for success in
this particular. What are called
common-sense" heels hav now
been decreed to be the thing.
Women ought to be devoutly thank
ful, therefore, that they have been
kindly taken oil of stilts and are per
mitted to walk in a way that is ad
mired by civilized men. Harrisburg

chamber or two. The clock tolls
sweetly . in the silent air. Here is
night and rest. An awful sense of
thanks makes the heart swell and the
head bow, as I pass to my room

Summing Up the Evidence.
' Galveston Print. J
It is to be deplored that Gov. Ire
laud should allow himself to display
the evidences of so despotic a temper,
and worse, to speak and act in a man
ner so oblivious of the real facts of
the case. Col. Brown makes applica
tion to him, as president of the peni
tentiary board, for the position of
financial manager of the peniten
tiaries. Gov. Ireland replies that his
application comes too late, that the
appointment has been already ten
dered to another gentleman. Col.
Brown, in his reply, states that
the board, as such, has taken
no action in the matter, and,
therefore, that the governor's as
sertion is not correct, unless
indeed, John Ireland composes the
board. Since "it pleased the legisla
ture, having in view such very cases
as this, to appoint a special peniten
tiary board, of which the governor
should be president ex-officio, it would
follow that each member of the board,
so far from being a dummy, holds co
ordinate rights and powers, and, ex
cept the privilege of presiding at the
meetings, are precisely equal (includ
ing the governor) the one to the other.
As the board, in its collective and
official capacity, had taken no action
in the premises, Gov. Ireland, by as
suming to speak for the board, was
guilty either of a piece of unwar
ranted and consummate egotisn, or
said what was not true.
A New Sleeping Car.
fNew York Tribune.
Since the invention of sleeping cars,
nearlj a quarter of a century ago, no
radical improvement has been made
in them. 1 Much has been done in dec
oration, but in the general arrange
ments for the comfort of travellers
the cars of to-day are substantiallv
what they were in 1860, when the
i'uiimans built their first sleeper, the
"Pioneer." And yet complaints over
crampea quarters, iacK ot privacy and
the poor ventilation are constant.
John A. Sleicher, of the Troy Times.
has invented a car which, he believes,
wui uu away wiuu tnese
complaints. Its berths or sections
extend across the car. and not
along the sides. The aisle runs along
one side for half the length of the
car, and along the opposite side for
the rest. The seats are each six feet
in length, and are in two sets, half of
them on one side and half on the other
side of the car. The main object is to
give to each section the privacy one
enjoys in a stateroom on a steamboat.
The seat is three feet wide, but the
back is attacked to a projection in
such a way that it leaves less than
two feet in width of the seat exposed.
To make up the car at night into a
steeper this nacK is swung up to a
horizontal position, leaving the seat
three feet wide for a lower berth.
The elevated back, together with
the offset or projection to which
it is hinged, is also three feet
wide and constitutes the upper
berth. The cushion of the seat is in
the shape of two mattresses, one of
which is placed upon the elevated
back or upper berth at night. To
make these two berths (constituting a
section) separate from all others, a
panel is raised from the back of the
seat reaching to the top of the' car.
Thus each section becomes a snug
private apartment, extending across
the car with room in it beside berths
for the occupant to stand and disrobe
at leisure. - The whole arrangement
is simple but complete The space
lehind the seat back, when it is folded
down by day, is used for the storage
of the pillows, blankets and the cur
tain that is to hang before the sec
tion. This plan does away with the cum
bersome and ill-ventilated upper
berths dependent from the sides of
the car near the roof, the weight of
which makes the ordinary sleeping
coach topheavy and easily upset. This
heavy, expensive work is rendered
unnecessary in the new car,, which
thus secures an economy in weight of
over 10,000 pounds per car. Mr.
Sleicher claims that a passenger can
find more rest and comfort in a berth
arranged across the car than in one ex
tending along its side and receiving
all the concussion from the wheels
and rails. He has determined to make
safety a feature of his coach. The
heater is so incased in boiler iron that
if the stove were crushed to frag
ments no cinders could be scattered.
The water tank is so arranged that
in case of collision the wrecking of
the car would scatter water all about
the heater. The cars will be lighted
with large wax candles or with coin
King Louis, of Bavaria, has always
been regarded are a harmless lunatic,
but since the death of his friend Wag
ner his lunacy has taken the form of
positive cruelty to his subjects. He
has just ordained that henceforth the
Royal Opera at Munich shall be de
voted exclusively to the representa
tion of Wagner's operas, all of which
are to be performed there in success
ion. Think what a fate this is for the
amiable, music loving, mirth-loving
people of Munich, doomed to listen to
the Wagnerian drama all their days.
Rebellious revolutions have arisen on
much less cause, and despots have
been done to death for acts of cruelty
that were benignity itself compared
with this. Wagner himself might have
written an opera on this subject more
solemn even than "The Flying Dutch
man." that is, if he had had any sense
The London Spectator says; "There
is something very pouching and
mother-like in the frankness with
which the queen, through the Court
Circular, asks her people to sym
pathize in the grief she feels for the
loss of a devoted attendant. We won
der how many of her subjects ever
reflect on the pathet ic element in the
queen's present position. There is no
one living who could address her by
her Christian name, or, indeed, on any
terms of equality, while all her chil
dren but one are married, scattered,
in business and households of their
own. It is a lonely peak to sit on, at the
top oi tne world, and as age draws on
the sovereign, who already has reigned
so long that men passing middle
age have consciously known no other,
must feel this more and more pain
fully, with a sadness which the move

of followers, has roused in her 'real

A German exchange furnishes the
following figures of the consumption
of champagne in the chief countries
of the world: England heads the
list, drinking 50,000,000 of bottles a
year; the Unit d States, Canada and
Mexico consuming 10,000,000; France,
2,500,000; Russia, 2,000,000; Germany,
1,500,000; Holland, 600,000; Italy and
Belgium, 200,000 each ; Spain, 300.000,
and Africa, 100,000 bottles. We are
to presume that the champagne afore
said was genuine.
Northampton has been the chief
seat of English shoemaking ever
since the days of Magna Charta John,
wno was nimseir snou tnere, as an
ancient record shows. The spirit of
the redoubtable barons still bears
fruit in the radical politics of the
place, which to-day sends Jabouchere
and Bradlaugh to parliament, and
which, when Cromwell's army
marched through it, furnished the
soldiers with 20,000 pairs of shoes.
More than 30,000 persons are row em
ployed there in the shoe trade.
O'Donovan Rossa has figured out
the "cost of burning London" to be
17,251 lOd. He calculates that it will
require 12,000 to pay the passage
money over and back of "1000 evicted
Irishmen," and 5000 is required for
"contingent money" that is, for the
drinks, probably. Rooms would be
taken at 1000 London hotels for one
night at five shillings each, 250, and
1000 boxes of matches would be re
quired at 1 lOd. The project would be
to light 1000 beds. How the bed-lighters
are to get away has not been fig
ured out by Rossa.
A Medical Marvel.
Lafayette (Indiana) Special.
One of the most remarkable cases
in the history of medicine and sur
gery is that of Miss Belle Bryan, of
Battle Ground, this county, who, sev
eral months ago, in a sleighing acci
dent, had a quarter of her skull torn
from her head. It was a horrible ac
cident, and extremely sickening in its
details. A cupful of brains, bone and
matter oozed from her head, and still
she lived, until it was thought her re
covery was possible. Now the side
of her head is puffed out, and yet her
mind seems clear and she readily un
derstands what is said to her. Her
case has attracted wide-spread inter
est, and is regarded as marvelous.
Chalmers Xot a Power.
Special to Commetcial Gazette.
Postmaster General Gresham is not
to be numbered among those who be
lieve in the possibilities of a reorgan
ization ot parties in the south at every
cost. One of his first acts has been to
refuse to recognize the right of Chal
mers, of Mississippi, to control the
Federal patronage of that state.
Chalmers has succeeded in removing
one or two officials who were not ac
ceptable to him, and he has now asked
tor the removal ot .f ostmaster Ken
non, of Columbus. Action upon this
demand was postponed, owing to
Judge Howe's death, and the first act
of Judge Gresham has been to refuse
to make the removal.
The possibilities of electricity are
apparently boundless, and almost ev
ery day brings forth some new inven
tion for its application to useful pur
poses. One of the latest of these is the
portable electric lighter, which is now
manufactured in this city, and which
exhibited at No. 22 Vatertreet. This
is in effect a small chemical battery,
occupying a space of - five square
inches and weighing but five pounds
with all its fittings. By pressing upon
a knob the current is produced, a strip
of platinum is heated to incandescence
and light instantaneous. This can be
carried from room to room and placed
upon the desk or the table. At a slight
additional expense it can be so ar
ranged as to ring an alarm or signal
bell, or to light gas in any part of the
house. The contrivance is novel,
simple, convenient and cheap. Bos

completely worn out and discouraged; I had
no ambition to undertake to do anything, and
barely sufficient strength to render existence
desirable, having failed to find any relief
from the doctor's prescriptions. At this try

bottle of Hunt's Remedy, and now I rejoice
that I followed this friendly adviee, for the
Remedy acted like a charm in my case. After
I had taken a few doses, my health begau to
improve ; I felt better every way. The flutter

terrible shortness of the breath speedily dis
appeared, my strength and ambition soon re
turned, and before I had taken two bottles of
the Remedy I was entirely well, and able to
