J Dk. G. W. Fosteh, of Nel
S Bonville, was in town to-day.
He says farmers are .industri
ously engaged in preparing land
for the seed, and in repairing
lenses, and performing other
plantation labor. There will -be
,more oats sowed by fanners in
that part of Austin coantVj
than usual.

.belter. iivery taste was grati
fied. A few of those belonging
to the office, do not, as a rule
"take sugar in theirs," but all
can appreciate the fragrance of
aSne Havana. Tlie brandy
was duly sipped, and the health
aud success of the new firm
drank in animating bumpers.
On the beautiful plantations
idong the road from Travis to
the city, we noticed that nearly
all the farmers have commenced
turning up the sod. Most fann
ers recognize the fact, and act
accordingly, that the first and
most important step in securing
gwd- crops, is to thoroughly
prepare the soil for the recep
tion of seed. Besides the ne
cessity of proper preparation of
the soil to insure good crops, it
should be. borne in mind that
where this has been properly
attended to, the cultivation can
be accomplished with at least
one-fourth less labor. Every
thing is in favor of thorough
preparation of the soil, and we
are glad' that farming communi
ties generally, in this portion of
the State, are acting on the idea.
From Sunday's Daily.
Pneumonia, We learn that
there are several cases of pneu
monia in the ciy, superinduced
by the changeable weather
which has visitea us during the
the past three weeks.
Wood. The freeze caused
several wood-haulers.to hrinr in
wood yesterday, which they of
fered at the "moderate" price
of five dollars perord. The
demand was quite limited at
that extortionate fiarnre.

before the Mayor yesterday
morning, and were made to

and -freeze that has vibited this
section for the past seven years
was experienced on Friday
"tight- Yesterday morning
the trees, fences, houses, kc,
were covered with ice, which
caused great suffering to stock.
Watee Failure. We learn
that in some parts of the city
that wells are still very low,
affording but a limited supply
of water. The" fall rains thus
far have not been sufficient to
benefit wells, hence the scarcity
of water.
-A Fair Compromise. When
we wrote a notice of the un
certain state of the weather in
our Iaat, we were in doubt
whether it would rain, snow or
. sleet. It did a little of each.
iNow that is what may be called
a fair compromise.
We learn from Hon. S. A.
Hackworth, the postmaster at
this place, that mail matter in
tended for the Northern or
Western States, will reach its
destination 12 hours earlier, if
deposited in the office here by
.half after 12 o'clock, instead of
waiting for the 4 o'clock, eve
ning train. We deem this a
matter of sufficient importance
to our business men, to give it
publicity. A iev hours are

Yesterday was such a disa
greeable, bad day, that very few
citizens from the country show
ed their faces in the city. It
was a uice day for staying in
John J. Hagoekty, Esq., of
Bellville, was in the city yester
day, and called at our office.
Having been successful in most
of his cases at the late term of
the District Court of Austin
county, John was in a very am
ichble mood. He is stopping at
the Central.
Plnt Fkuit Trees. Within
aradins of four or five miles of
this city, there are half a dozen
nurseries or more. At these
nurseries select fruit trees enn
be had of all the fruits adapted
to our climate, on fair terms.
2uw is the time tor planting
peach, plum and pear tree.
Every man, who owns a few
acres of land, can and should
enjoy the healthy luxury of good
fruit, for good fruit is not only
healthy, but is one of the most
exqisitc luxuries that ever tick
led man's palate, "since his ex
puUio.n from the garden sup
posed to have been prolific of all
golden fruits.
Xo man, who owns and cul
tivates a few acres of land, can
offer a sound excuse for depriv
ing himself and family of the
healthy comfort afforded by fruit
alone. Every consideration,
even the practical one of econo
my, urges upon every man who
owns soil, to cultivate fruit. A
few dollars invested in select
fruit trees will repay a hundred
fold. There is nothing to be
gained by delay, and everything
by acting at once.
From Tuesday's Daily.
Post Master Hackworth has
made an improvement in the
Postoffice by a general painting
up, which was much needed. A
man owning a lock box now,
can find his nnmbcr without
putting on spectacles to aid his
natural vision.
Personal! Major D. L.
McGary, of tho Civilian, soon

in the city yesterday, aud hon
ored our sanctum with his pres
ence. The Major is looking the
picture of a man who had

Personal. Mr. Jas. E. Ste
vens of Travis was in the city
y-stcrday. and reports every
thing prosperous in that portion
of Austin county.
Mr. Stearnes, Senior, and Dr.
Creath, .both of Rickey, were
also in the city yesterday. If
we tiny take the appearance of
the two gentlemen named as an ,
average sample of the hygienic
condition of the people in the
neighborhood of Roekcy, there
is no very flattering prospect
that the Doctor's professional
services will bgjjj, pressiong de
maud. But when there is any
cases to be treated in that vic
inity, tho skill of Doctor C. is
certain to be put into immedi
ate requisition.
Last Sunday there were four
Mexican women in the city, try
ing to turn an honest penny by
selling mocking-birds, a' cage
with a pair of thesec birds, be
ing attached to the shoulders of
each of the "ladies."
The toilets of the Mexican
Senoritas, were not greatly dif
ferent from those worn in the
rural districts minus the "pull
back," for these dames seemed
intent on going forward.
In the style of arranging their
raven tresses, they exhibited a
commendable degree of imita
tion, by wearing this crowning
adornment to woman's charms,
in the fashion known as "scram
ble." We are not well up in
the technical terms that hedge
in the "mystical sublimities"
that constitute a lady's divine
paraphernalia. But at any rate,
while looking in vain tor the
languishing beauty, said by so
many writers to linger in the
"sott black eyes" of Mexican
Senoritas, we observed that their
"head gear' presented the ap-.
poarancc of having long bcon a
stranger to the regulating influ
ence of the domestic article
known a a- cinli.

Dons Advertising Pay ? A
sewing machine repiircr adver
tised that he would be in Bren
liam by the 20th of this month,
for the purpose of waiting on
those needing his services. Two
orders at the Banner await his
arrival. It looks as if advertis
ing paid, and promptly at that.
The law card of C. T Kava-
naugh, Esq., will be found in
this' issue of the Banner. Mr.
K. is a gentleman of large expe
rience in the management of
legal business, and having an
extensive circle of fri&nds and
acquaintances who can appre
ciate his merits, he will, no
doubt, find employment for his
time aud talents.
Anthony Kelly and Dave
Corus, alias Dave Williams',
were tried yesterday for hog
stealing, and sent to the peni
tentiary for one year. Klep
tomania seems to be a malady
prevailing among our lately en
franchised fellow-citizens. Will
they never learn to distinguish
between meuni et teum, or in
plain old English, mine and
The Weather. Yesterday
was the worst day we have had
during tho winter. It sleeted
some during the night and set
in about breakfast time as if
business was meant, and contin
ued until about 11 o'clock.
Few men from the country
came to the city during the day,
except tho32.who were forced to
attend court in some capacity.
Less business wa3 transacted by
our merchants than in any day
tor a long time back.
TnERE may have been scores
of local items laying around
loose yesterday, to be utilized by
a persevering reporter, but the
day was too inclement for in
dulging in outdoor amusement.
It may be seriously doubted if the
most oppressed son-in-law who
was ever harrasscd by that much
misrepresented personage, the
tjaditional mother-in-law, would
have been willing to attend her
funeral yesterday. Undoubted
ly he would have grumbled and
said "why couldn't she have
put it oil a day or two ?"
From Thursday's Daily.
Several State cases were dis
posed of in the District Court,
yesterday. 2sone of them, how
ever, were of great importance
to the public.
If our people do not supply
themselves with mocking birds
to cheer their hearts with ever
varying songs, the fault will be
their own, and not that of the
dealers in the feathered song
sters. These peddlers were split
ting the mud yesterday.
Yesteday was so very un
pleasant, that iittle business was
done in the city, outside of the
trade within its limits. We are
having a spell ot bad weather,
whose protracted stay is as dis
grceable as that of an unwel
come guest.
Hugh Cam vck, a colored man,
was tried yesterday in our Dis
trict Court on achirgcof maim
ing, and was acquitted. Messrs.
Breedlove & Ewing conducted
the defense it would be super
fluous to say with ability. They
arc always equal to that.
Personal. Lieut. J. L. Hall
of Capt. McKelly's Company is
in the city. Last week Lieut.
Hall delivered five prisoners
from De Witt, at the city of Aus
tin last week. The company is to
be mustered ont of the State
service the 25th instant.
Lieut. Hall is stopping with
his friend Col. Sloan.

Personal. The many friends
of J. F. Matchett, will be glad
to learn that he contemplates
returning to Brenham at an
early day and resuming prac
tice. He is a fine physician, an
able man and a clever gen tie
man. The return of this gentleman
to Brenham is proot, if proof
of the fact were needed, that
the advantages of Rrenham and
surrounding country, aie not
excelled by any section of our
great State. During his ab
sence Dr. M. has visited several
of the nrth western counties,
and among them .Browne and
Comanche. The truth is there
is no portion of Texas tbafrof
fers supeiior attractions to those
found in our own midst.
"Farmer Boy" has a place in
this issue of the Banner, but we
by no means adopt the idea that
it would be sound policy for the
grangers to "buy their staple
goods at Galveston. - .
We oncerread a portion of a
book entitled "Every Man his
own Lawyer," and were soon
convinced that any man who
followed the book, having any
considerable business to transact,
requiring legal acumen, would
soon find himself so entangled
in tho meshes of uncertainty,
that it would require the labor
of two or three good law.) ere to
6triighten him out.
'"Every man his own Doctor,"
is a work equ illy absurd. If it
was followed, perhaps there
would be fewer fools in the
world and fewer people also.
Wc have alluded to these t',o
professions to show the absurdity
of a man's being his own every
thing. It is not more absurd
for every man to be his own
lawjer, doctor, blacksmith or
silversmith, than it is for every
man to be his own merchant.
Attention is directed to the
advertisement of Messrs. Wood
ik Low, in this issue. These
gentlemen are well known in
the county and no doubt re
ceive the patronage they so well
deserve as public benefactors.

Wn clip the following from
the,Houston Telegraph, indors
sing Mrs. Williams' Reading.
We have no doubt that every
word said in comraandation of
her ability is well deserved.
Mrs. Williams is in the city,
stopping at the Central. She
honored the Banner office by a
call yesterday evening. She
will give Readings in this city,
to-night, in the parlor of the
Central Hotel.
A glance at this lady serves
10 convince the beholder that
she is highly gifted, intel
lectually, and thoroughly ac
complished in the entertaining
art she practices. The Tele
graph says :
"Her programme was well
chosen, such pieces as Tenny
son's "Guiueveve," a fragment
of which she read; ''Quarrel of
Brutus and Cassius," from Juli
us Caesar; "Stealing Roses
through the Gate." and "Good
Xight, but not Good Bye,"' by
Mollie E. Moore; "Mrs. Cau
dle's Lecture," by Jerrold, and
John Hay's "Jim BludsO,' be
ing of a kind to give play to
her powers ot voice and man
ner. Her rendition of "Steal
ing Roses through the Gate,"
"Good Night, but not Good
Bye,'' and "Mrs. Candle's Lec
ture," struck us more favorably
than her reading ot the other
pieces, though they were well
rendeied also, and were most
favorably received by the audi
ence. There is scarcely a poem
in the English language more
difficult- to read perfectly than
"Jim Bludso," and when we say
that Mrs. Williams read it well,
we do her no more than simple.

The man or woman who is
above labor, and despi-ei the
laborer, shows a want of
common sense and forgets that
every article that is Used is the
product of more or less labor,
and that the air they breathe
md the circulation of blood in
the veins, is the result ot the
labor of the God of nature.
Washington and his lady Were
examples of industry, plainness,
frugality and economy; aud
thousands of others of the
wealthy labored in the field and
kitchen, in olden times, before
toiiv superceded wisdom, and
fashion drove economy and com
mon sense off the track. The
necessity imposed on man to
labor is unquestionably a great
blessing, as much as many are
opposed to it, and others flee
from it. In those countries and
districts of country where the
greatest amount ot labor is
requisite to obtain the necessa
ries of life, we find the most
vigorous, healthy and athletic
inhabitants. Where nature has
done most, for man, in providing
for his bodily wants, wc find
him most destitute of the solid
comforts of life. In the high
lands of Scotland, on the moun
tains of Circassia. amidst the
hills of Norway, the people are
happier, by far more robust,
and more energetic than in
effeminate Spain or impover
ished Italy In our own coun
try, rockbound .New England,

spurs and valleys, support a

For many years we have made
two icedicines suited to the ail
ments of a vast class of sufferers.
Thousands ot cures have heen
made by them, and, in fact, the
word failure could not.be coup
led with them. But within the
last two years counterfeits of
our medicines have sprung up,
dangerous in their close imita
tion of our trade mark. To se
cure the people wo have placed
upon each gunuine box of Hol
loway's Ointment the fac simile
of the signature of our agent,
Mr. Jos. Haydock. To counter
feit is felony. We shall relent
lessly pursue any one who imi
tates this with the utmost vigor
of the law. We mot earnestly
beg that the great mass of the
American people will aid us in
our efforts to protect their
health, and help us in our task
of bringing these most unprin
cipled men to the bar of justice.
Uniformly refuse to purchase
Medicines purporting to be ours
unless Mr. Jos. Ilaydock's sig
nature is attached to each box
of Pills or pot of Ointment and
the end will soon be reached.
