Until very lately the sight of cavalry
troops east of the Missouri has been con
lined to a peep at the little battalion at
Washington The Fifth Seventh and a
couple of troops o the Sixth were on
duty in the Southern states for a while
after the civil war but since 1872 or 1873
our guidons never fluttered further East
than Jefferson barracks Missouri until
Gen Sheridan deoided on bringing two
companies to tho Potomac Cavalry
officers in uniform were a very rare sight
in our Eastern cities as a consequence
and the nature of their real services is
very little understood It has happened
within the past ten years that two or
three of sheir number have been ordered
to the East on staff duty and have ap
peared on state occasions in the fulldross
uniform of their rank Now there are
some of our people to whom the sight of
a regular officer in uniform is something
like the traditional red rag to a bull
and there are always newspapers ready
to sneer at the soldiers for the benefit of
this particular class As an instance a
Washington correspondent referred some
little time ago to the carpet knight
of a cavalry officer present at a social
gathering The gentleman so disdain
fully spoken of happened to be a tall and
most distinguishedlooking trooper who
had fought with Gen Thomas from Mill
Spring to Nashville in every one of his
great battles had been perforated by
rebel bullets had been twice brevet
ted for gallantry in action during that
great war had led his troop and fought
every tribe of Indians from the Gila to
the Upper Missourihad starved or frozen
with his men having to surrender sev
eral fingers to the surgeons knite or
loose an entire haud who had been
thankful time and again for a bit of
horseflesh on which to sustain life and
finally after years of service over the
plains and mountains had been ordered
East on staff duty to be sneered at by
some whippersnapper of a newsboy who
was in swaddling clothes when the ob
jeot of his dersion was fighting like a
lion at CLickamauga These slings of
the press at our soldiery are by no means
as frequent now as they were ton years
ago before the wonderful pencils of Item
iugton and Zogbaum had taught
our people through the illustrated
papers something of the real life
our troopers lead but once in a while
they still appear and when you see
them boys just stop aud think a mo
ment The chances are ten to one that
they are hitting at some officer who has
done years of hard and perilous service

To teach young people or old people
how to observe nature is a good deal like
trying to teach them how to eat their
dinner The first thing necessary in the
latter case is a good appetite this given
the rest follows very easily
And in observing nature un
less you have the appetite
the love the spontaneous desireyou will
get little satisfaction It is the heart
that sees more than the mind To love
nature is the first step in observing her
If a boy had to learn fishing as a task
what slow prosress he would make but
as his heart is in it how soon ha becomes
an adept
The eye sees quickly and easily those
things in which we are interested A
man interested In horses sees every fine
horse in the country he passes through
the dairymen notes the cattle the bee
culturist counts the skips of bees the
sheepgrower notes the flocks etc Is it
any effort for the ladies to note the new
bonnets new cloaks upon the street We
all see and observe easily in the life of
our business our tasks our desires
If one is aldverof the birds he sees
birds everywhere plenty of them I
think I seldom miss a bird in my walk If
he is within eye or earshot even though
my mind be not intent upon that subject
Walking along the road this very day
feeliug a cold driving snowstorm I saw
some large birds in the top of a maple as
I passed by 1 do not know howl oame
to see them for 1 was not in an ornitho
logical frame of mind ButI did There
were three of them feeding upon the buds
of the maple They were nearly as large
as robins of a dark ash color very
plump with tails muoh forked What
were they My neighbor did not know
had never seen such birds before but I
instantly knew them to be pine grosbeaks
from the far North 1 had not seen them
before for ten years A few days pre
viously I had hoard one call from the air
as it passed over I recognized the note
and hence kne > v that the birds were
about They come down from the
North at irregular intervals and
are seen in Ilock3 in various parts
of the states They seem just as
likely to oome mild winters aB Bevere
ones Later in the day the birds came
about my study I sat reading with my
back to the window when I was advised
of their presence by catching a glimpse
of one reflected in ray eye glasses as it
flew up from the ground to the branch of
an apple tree only a few feet away I
only mention the oiroumstances to show
how quick an observer is to take the hint
I was absorbed in my reading but tho
moment that little shadow flitted athwart
that luminous reflection of the window in
the corner of my glasses something said
that was a bird Approaohing the
window I saw several of them sitting not
five feet away I could inspect them
perfectly They were a slate color with
a tinge of bronze upon the head and
lump Iu full plumage the old males
are a dusky red Hence these were all
either young males or females Oc
casionally among these flocks an old
male may be seen It would seem as if
only a very few of the older and wiser
birds accompanied these younger
birds in their excursions into more
Southern climes
Presently the birds left the apple bough
that nearly brushed my window and with
a dozen or more of their fellows that I
had not seen settled in a Norway spruce
a few yards away and began to feed upon
the buds They looked very pretty there
amid the driving snow I was flattered
that these visitants from the far North
should find entertainment on my prem
ises How plump contented and en
tirely at home they looked Butthey
made suoh havoo with the spruce buds
that after awhile I began to fear a bud
would not be left upon the trees the
spruces would be checked in their growth
the next year So I presently went out
to remonstrate with them and ask them
to move on I approaohed them very
slowly and when beside the tree within
a few feet of several of them they heeded
mo not One bird kept its position and
went on snipping off the buds till I raised
my hand ready to seize it before it moved
a yard or two higher up I think it was
only my white uncovered hand that dis
turbed it Indeed They were so un
acquainted with man their tameness was
shocking to see The snow was cov
ered with the yellow chaffy scales of the
bud and still the birds sifted them down
till I was compeLjd to shoo them
away when they moved to a tree nearer
the house beneath which they left more
yellow chaff upon the snow
The mind of an observer is like a gun
with a hair trigger it goes at a touch
while the minds of most persons require
very vigorous nudcing You must take
the hint and take it quickly if you
would eet up any profitable intimacy with
nature Above all dont jump to con
clusions look again and again verify
your observations Be sure the crow is
pulling corn and not probing for grubs
before you kill him Be sure it is the
oriole purloining your grapes and not
the sparrows before you declare them
your enemies I one day saw humming
birds apparently probing the ripe yellow
cheeks of my finest peaches but I was
not satisfied till I saw a bird hovering
over a particular peaoh and then mount
ing upon a ladder I examined it when
sure enough the golden cheek was full
of pin holes The orioles destroy many
of my earliest pears but it required
much watching to catch them in the very
act I one saw a phcebe bird swoop
upon a raspberry bush and carry a berry
to a rail on a near fence but I did not
therefore jump to the conclusion that
the phcebe wa3 a berryeater What it
wauted was the worm in the berry How
do I know Because I saw it extraot
something from the berry and fly away
The belief was at one time all but uni
versal that swallows passed the winter in
a torpid state in the mud at the bottom
of ponds and rivers Even Gilbert White
acute an observer as he was more than
half believed it As no man ever found
a swallow in such a state and place how
could the notion ever get started Gil
bert White could offer as his reason but
the merest shadow of evidence that suoh
was the case such as seeing swallows
lurking about ponds and marshes late in
the season Find your bird in the mud
torpid and not dead before you enter
tain suoh a notion A French missionary
said to have been a good naturalist also
writiug in this country in 163i makes
this curious statement about our hum
ming bird This bird as one might
say dies or to speak more correotly
puts Itself to sleep in the month of Octo
ber living fastened to some little
branchlet of a tree by the feet and
wakes up in the month of April when the
flowers are in abundance and sometimes
later and for that cause is called in the
Mexican toncue the Revived How
could the good missionary ever be led to
make such a statement The aotual
finding of the bird wintering in that way
would have been the proof soienoe de
mands and nothing short of that
English sparrows have bean found
dead suspended to a limb by a thread or
string about the neck and some people
have therefore tried to persuade them
selves that sparrows either execute their
culprits in the approved fashion or else
that an occasional bird commits suicide
probably from jealousy or disappoint
ment in love But it is quite a common
tragedy for birds that make use of
strings in building their nests to get
hung Sometimes a horse hair will get
wound around the legs of young birds in
the neat so tightly as to completely am
putate them
A boy in the interior of the state wrote
to me the other day that while in the
field looking after Indian arrowheads
he had seen a brown and a gray bird
with a black mark running through the
eye and that the bird walked in
stead of hopped He said it had a
high sbrill whistle and fiew like a mead
owlark This boy is a natural observer
he noted that the bird was a walker
Most of the birds hop or jump keeping
both feet together A late work on our
birds speaks of the robin as hopping an
bounding along on the ground Tjfe
robin is a runner it takes regularIt
but It takes them vary swiftly T tla
heard his bird afterward In thjggdgjKpf

ways but could not get aglimils o
He had failed to note the est 6
bead and the black spot on its breaatYor
doubtless his strange bird was the shore
lark a Northern bird that oomes to us
in flocks in the late fall or early winter
and of late years has become a perina
nent resident of
York state I
full song above
ware county after the
English skylark but
certaiu parts of New
have heard it in
the hills in Dela
manner of the
its song was a
crude feeble broken affair compared
with that of the skylark These birds
thrive well in confinement I had one
seven months in a cage while living in
Washington It was disabled in the
wing by a gunner who broueht it to me
Its wound soon healed it took food read
ily it soon became tame and was an
objeot of much interest and amusement
The cage in which I had hastily put it
was formerly a case filled with stuffed
birds Its front was glass As it was
left out upon the poroh over night a
strange cat discovered the bird through
the glass and through this glass she
plunged and captured the bird In the
morning there was the large hole in the
glass and the pretty lark was gone 1
have always indulged a faint hope that
the glass was such a surprise to the cat
and made such a racket about her eyes
and ears as she spranc against it that
she beat a hasty retreat and that the
bird escaped through the break

Tell About tho Improvements
at the Brazos
Yesterday a Gazette man sought an
expression from Messrs Charles Good
night and n B Stoddard regarding the
progress being made in the direotion o
deep water on the Texas coast those
gentlemen having recently visited the
coast in the interest of the refrigerator
movement which they mot in Fort Worth
yesterday to consult about Said they
The question of deep water on the
Texas ooast is one that will be settled in
a very short time At the mouth of the
Brazos we found the work In a condition
well advanced toward completion The
work is being pushed rapidly and is
having Its natural effect The depth of
water has been increased ten feet during
the time since the work was commenced
until when we went there and most of
tho material for the completion of
the work is on hand there
Thirty or forty more good working days
will enable them to cross the bar with the
line of their jetties The work of man
is beiue aided by nature and together
they are forming there a harbor of great
capacity that will compare with any in the
world at least so we are reliably in
formed by those who know the capacity
and dimensions of other famous harbors
There is no question that there is safe
and secure anchorage them for all the
vessels that will be brought in during our
generation The indications uow areand
we firmly believe this will be the first
deep water port procured on the Texas
coast The advantage of the consum
mation of that measure is known to all
people and its advantage to the particu
lar industry which we have met in the
oity today to advance is too patent to

Judge Harris Comments on the Ecsnlt of the
Convention Which Becently Met
at Dallas Tex
From Thursdays Daily
Judge Harris said last night that he
was disappointed in the result of the
road convention that met in Dallas last
Tuesday I am not disappointed in
what the convention did do continued
the judge but in the faot that the
representatives of the counties stopped
where they did There will be no tangi
ble results of the convention because
the only thing that was done was to
indorse by resolution the amendment to
tho constitution That will be of no
account because the question is so
thoroughly before the people that the
amendment may be said to be a sure
thing anyway
The result of the meeting was disap
pointing in this because the passage of
this amendment was represented to be a
solution of the road question But it
isnt If that were a solution of the
difficulty it couldnt be said that there
was muoh of a problem in the road ques
tion The passage of the amendment
will of course be a relief but the great
question will still be before the people
Personally went on Judge Harris
1 had hoped for something more For
myself I think the issuing of county
bonds would be the best thing and I had
hoped that the oonveution would do
something toward that end But the
majority was in opposition to county
bonds I was surprised and cant appre
ciate the reason for such a
stand Of course I dont
mean a law which states that
counties shall issue bonds whether they
want to do it or not but I mean a law
that would make the course constutional
and leave the step with the people of the
county immediately interested so that
when they felt that they could safely
take the extra burden on them for better
roads they could do it Let it be put to
the te3t of a majority of the people It
is an unsatisfactory method to leave such
things with the county commissioners
because they may take some step for
which the people are not ready How
ever the majority of the convention was
against the issuance of bonds and the
whole matter rests just where it did be
fore the meeting

Mme Mat erna
whose marvelous
voice has been
heard in this coun
try has just won a
brilliant suooess in
Pans I mention
this in a fashion
article because the
Frenoh papers are
unusually enthusi
astic over her but
add with a sigh
Oh if Madam
Materna would
only dress better
I think I hear some
fair reader say
with a saucy toss
of the head
Madam Materna
is an artist and
she owes it to tho
public to dress well But are we not
all artists Have we not all our pub
lics large or small to which we owe al
legianoe a husband or a sweetheart a
circle or a coterie I think bo A mar
ried woman of my acquaintance now
sixtyfive for over forty years has worn
a ceinture as a part of her night dress
in order that she might keep intact the
beauty of her fieure which her husband
had always raved over
Well a glance at the turoan worn by
the dainty miss at the head of this arti
cle turns my thoughts to hats A very
pretty toque of white French crepe has
made its appearance The brim is bor
dered with a narrow band of maize col
ored ostrich feathers gold bullion passe
menterie passing across the head with
additional trimmings of bows of inoh
wide velvet ribbons in white and maize
color and strings of the maize colored
Lace and velvet flowers enter largely
into the construction of the headgear at
high prices
In the second picture there appears
another very stunning hat in Tuscan
straw trimmed with gold edged white
gauze and branches of mimosa But
now 1 come to something which will de
light the hearts of all beholders an ex
tremely stylish jacket I once heard of
a man who on a yachting party fell in
love with a jacket excuse me girl in a
jacket That jacket haunted him pur
sued him flitted before him in his dreams
until at length he betook himself to the
dwelling place of the jacket aforesaid
with intent to tell his love But he
chanced his mind when he saw the girl
minus jacket
This jacket before us is yery original
and becoming being made in a combi
nation of pale cachan cloth with rows of
errelots in the earae shade and black vel
vet The plastron is in old silver em
broidery The skirt i3 of soft white
wool made plainly While on the sub
ject of jackets let me say a word about
wraps These are not only very dressy
but very modish They are slightly
gathered in an original way and have
Medicis collars They must not go be
low the waist and must harmonize with
the color of the costume no matter of
what material they may be made The
funnelshaped Medicis collar still re
mains a great favorite but it produces a
ridiculous effect on a shortnecked
dumpy figure altogether too realistic
that placing a funnei in the spigot of a
At the seaside or in the mountains a
white cloth jacket striped with chestnut
brown and trimmed with white fur will
be very dressy next summer for a young
person or even one a little older Suoh
a jacket may be seen hanging on the arm
of the next figure The nieht air gets
pretty chilly at some of the watering
places and while it may be romantic to
be wrapped up in half of Toms overcoat
yet in such a divide the girl always
gets the most and Tom might eatch his
death the dear boy
The coBtume of the lady with the
jacket on her arm is a very pretty ar
rangement in two blues being a combi
nation of skyblue surah and dark blue
cloth embroidered with white and pale
blue designs and bordered with gray fur
Thehat is of dark blue silk crepe with a
ribbon of pale blue silk laid upon it all
around and trimmed with a bunch of
narcissus This is a very stylish costume
and would look well on a hotel veranda
especially if there was a pretty woman
inside of it These arrangements in two
shades are likely to continue to be fash
ionable Only I must sound a note of
warning anent the velvet sleeve Its
days are numbered A witty friend of
mine to whom I made this announce
ment replied that he was sorry to hear
it as he had four unmarried daughters
and tb6 velvet sleeves had been an agree
able change from the scratchy stuff
heretofore entwined about his neck when
favors were to be asked
The new sleeve in wool dresses will be
of different color and entirely covered
with guipure of the same shade as the
material The effect of this new conceit
is rich and stylish

made costume holds its own right val

very perfection of street dress and often
has a heap of style about it too its
very simplicity giving it a tone of high
breeding and oulture The material for
these tailormade suits will be ladys
oloth in fawn gray stone and drab
trimmed with applique bands of a lighter
or darker tone of cloth or kid out out in

The last illustration in this article
represents another combination beige
oloth and bronze velvet trimmed with
bronze silk grelots The sleeves are
more than akin tight from the elbow
down and must be buttoned after the
dress is > on 1 never use the expression

The hat worn by this lady in the last
mentioned cut is scoopshaped and
made of black lace trimmed with roses
All in all this is a very pretty makeup
and well qualified to show off a neat
trim figure These silk grelots used to
trim this costume are much affected just
at present
A pretty toilet for a young miss is of a
delicate lead color the bottom of the
skirt being trimmed with three rows of
passementerie with willow green grelots
The corsage is made en fichu over a vest
of willow green velvet the sleeves very
bouffant at the shoulders run down to
nothing at the wrists
Sleeves nowadays demand and get a
great deal of attention Our grand
mothers studied this sleeve question
Look at some of your old portraits for
sleeve effects
But 1 saw a ball costume the other
day whioh in the matter of sleeves
was as full of thought as one of Brown
ings poems and of grace as a Tennysonian
idyl They consisted of tulle be
spangled with jet were of the socalled
angel pattern and were thrown back
and fastened to the waist whence they
spread over the train The inside sleeve
was made entirely of ohaplets of jet
whioh were joined in one place only onJ
the outside of the arm and fell in a
shower to the elbow Ah it was a real
poem and its author is as much entitled
to immortality as these makers of word
By the way did it never occur to you
how greatly indebted these versifiers nre
to designers and inventors of artistic
costumes But have they ever acknowl
edged it Take every mention of wo
mans dress out of Tennyson and what a
sieve you would create True there is
one allusion to dress by Lord Alfred
which I must admit would have to stand
Which one Why his description of
JM =
Lady Godiva clothed in her hair
That brings me exaotly vrhere I wanted
to be There is one thing certain Lady
Godiva was not a Boston woman
Of all skimpy growths of hair com
mend me to the Boston girl May then
not be a mysterious bond of sympatb
between the deyelopment of the brai
and the loss of the hair Who knowss
There is one consolation for the Boston
woman however Should she ever be
called npon to enact the role of Lady
Godiva she may wear her glasses
All ornaments for the hair even for
full dress must be simple and refined
Two butterflies with gold winga set
lightly upon the fluffy coiffure was
deemed sufficient even for a ball costume
or a pink Mane Antoinette puff with a
silver aigrette When flowers are used
strip them of their leaves and U3e them
only in one place If yon have plenty of
hair the epanlet twist low on tho neck
with the rest of the hair continued over
the top cf the head still continues to be
a favorite style The Greek coiffure is
also deservedly popular setting off as It
does the shapely head aud classic fea
tures But after all only the artisj
eye can determine whether the
should be worn high or low whether
close to the head or raised in puffs
frizzes used alone by itself or pieced out
by artificial means It is a matter worthy
of deep study and tho term artists in
hair is not suoh a terrible misnomer
after all
W s Carothers Killed In the OElce of Dr
Bibb of Saltlllo Mexico Both Form
erly ot Austin
Special to the Gazette
Laredo Tex April 10 From pas
sengers just in from the city of Saltlllo
Mexico it is learned that W S Caroth
ers formerly of Austin Tex was killed
in that city last night in the office of Dr
Bibb also formerly of tho same point
There were no other parties present when
the killing ocourred Carothers was
shot through the heart Dr Bibb was at
once arrested and protested his innocence
claiming that the shooting was purelv
accidental The general supposition pre
vails that tho killing of Carrothers how
ever was a murder a3 there had been
some previous professional rivalry be
tween the two men and Bibb when in
anger is known to have an uncontrol
able temper Carrothers passed through
this oity a few days ago and was to have
removed to tho City of Mexico next
week In faot he was in Saltillo on this
occasion to remove his furniture etc
