Such an institu tion is a benefit to any town or city, but it seems to be a most difficult matter to get one es tablished on a firm basis. About a year ago, Brenham, after a great deal of hard work and an immense expenditure of wind, started a public library and reading-room with flourish of trumpets and beating of drums. The reading-room was-kept" open at night for several months during the hot summer months, but the attendance was very small, and no interest being taken in keeping the room up, '.t died a natural death. Since that time, the subject of a reading-room has not been mention ed. The Brenham Literary Sociable has been, organized for nearly .two years, and .has maintained its weekly meetings!" the exercises consisting ' of music and readings. The socie ty is composed of the elite of the city, and we would suggest that they .take the necessary steps to found a public library and reading-room on a basis by which it can be maintained. We have no doubt butthat many paying members could be ob tained, and also, donations of linnl-c Tlinr cnrri nn in;riril- UUtSIW. ..Ut. .... tion is needed here, and would prove beneficial,- no -one can doubt Because tllB first at tempt proVeduhsuccessfuJ, it is no.reason why another trial .shouldriiotbe made; . m , ' No .Nominations - The Colorado Citizen says "a number of leading-Democrats haVe expre'ssedUhemselves as opposed to a county convention' for the nomination oi county officers. The Democracy is in a majority in this-county and they believe we stand a. better chance to -secure" good officers by omitting the' usual -convention." T There seems to be a disposi-1 tion in a good many counties to ido away with county conven tions. Colorado being a neigh boring county, we shall watch the result with no little, interest. .The feeling in Colorado, wheie- the Democracy are in a minori ty, is, that without making par ty nominations, a good" county ticket can be elected. Should they be able to accomplish this very desirable end, it will be much better than nominating a ticket that they feel will be beaten. Colorado is one of the Senegambian counties,. a V -"" - ; r The Emperor Williams, while, taking a drive on Sunday, after noon in Berlin, was fired 'upon from-the window of ahoiise. The emperor was severely' wounded in .one arm andj)n the cheek by buck shot and small, shot. His assassin was "J3r. Nobeling, a 'doctor of philology and agriculture. Hejs a highly-educated "gentleman, and in good circumstances. Nobeling; fired on the persons who at tempted to arrest him 'ahdthen inflicted several wounds in his own head. His condition is critical. He attempted to kill the emperor because he believ ed the emperor's removal would be a public good. It is not claimed that Nobeling is insane. m . t The Washington Savrefer r.ng .to the passage by the House of the bill appropriating 520,000 for the expense of the Potter investigating -committee, says: "Alter the benate pass es it, the bill will have to go to the president for his signature, and if he signs it, he will be aid ing what is called a revolutiona ry committee witn money to conduct its operations." ' The Cincinati Euquiicrs mak ing of the Pottcr-Tildcn inves tigation says, the foolishness will have, or has had the effect of consolidating the Republican party to some extent, and that, certainly is not a Democratic ad vantage. The frauds areknown to all men. Why play a game with nothing to win? There is always something to lose. The Dallas Hnald says that the Brenham Greys intimate that they will accept the chal lenge of the Stonewall Greys, of Dallas, to shoot in the rifle match at the I Iouston encamp ment. The Herald warns other companies to look well to their lauieb, as the Stonewalls are center shot, X. THE "LEADER ON HANCOCK. The Austin Lender, a weekly paper, professedly non-partizan, but republican in principles, en dorses the Fayette county; Record's nomination of Han cock for congress. . and- gvs it will support ence to district. ittcia hope the)tp1cen'ss will put Judge Hancockin thc-field and tlect, independent of party." It then-threatens the Democra cy with defeat, and the sure election of Wash Jones if any man .other than its man Han cock be nominated. The Leader is an obscure sheet without any political influence whatever, and its vaporings amount to nothing. The Democracy of this district are largely in-the majority, and should Shepard'fic the choice of the convention, as we have every reason to believe he will be, he will carry the district by a majority that will not only a's tonish Leader and his Leadet, but every other Jones man and Republican. From a journal istic stand-point, the Leadet transcends its duty .in advoca ting Hancock by dubbing Shep ard'a third-rate politician and then" charging that any v other .man except t Hancock who should. aspireitp the-position as a mere politician. As a politi cian, Hancock himself, pcrhap's, comes as near filling the bill --as any man who could be found in -the State. In this "casc the Leadet ,ildi evidently inhab itsV glass house, should not be giiiltyof throwing stones. The Democracy of this district" arc fully competent to select their own standard bearer and will probably.-do so iii'spite of the ipse dixit o.f a mere Republican sheet aided and abetted by Col. Wash JOnes, the political mon tebank,' Greenbacker and Re publican Jones party candidate. ' Mr. Hancock will certainly gain no friends by such an advocacy of Ills claimsas that of theCAus tin Leader. It has long since been made as plain as daylight that abuse of political oppo nents makes more enemies than friends for the man or party re sorting to it, and the declara tion made' that all save Han cock are "mere politicians" is very apt to recoil upon the advo cate not only of his'claims.-but upon M,r. Hancock himself.' p m m The Waco 'Examiner still harps on class, legislation. It insists that farmers should have more representation and that Lang is the man to represent, them. Lang livesjn the town "of Marlin and owns a" -farm iii Falls county which he has cultivated by coiciicts. Lang in reality is no more a farmer than a merchant in town who owns a farm which Iiehas cultivated by hired labor. From present-indications the choice of the. people lays between Hubbard and - Throckmorton. Should Mr. Lang get .the nonii- . nation the Banner will most certainly supoort him It is more than likely the po tato, as a field crop, will be abandoned in Texas. In Wash ington and Austin counties it was extensively planted;' the yield was good, but it seems the farmers have failed to 'find a proper market. Houston Tele gram. -- It is true that potatoes were cxtensivcty planted in Wash ington county, but untrue that the yield was good At the time rain was most needed for potatoes the weather was dry, and this, combined with late planting, made the crop nearly a failure. The potato crop should in fact have all been shipped by the- time -the first shipment was made. Richmond, a town on t" c Mis souri river between Kansas City and St. Joe was on Saturday last struck by a cylconc, level ling to the ground nearly half ihc houses in town.

The average price of butter is nearly twice that of cotton so it appears the butter product is worth nearly as much as the cotton crop. It is believed that the south ern counties of Texas are bet ter adopted to "wheat growing than the lands of North Texas. The Banner will cheeriully publish any reports concerning the yield of wheat in this coun ty. The information desired will be very valuable in induc ing immigration. although corn is worth $6 a bushel in Chihuahua, the Mexican officials exact such a tariff as to consume the greater part of the profit.
