Thompson, of Cald well, died Saturday. Palestine has shipped 10,145 bales of cotton this season. A handsome new express office is to be erected at Palestine. Several cases of diptheria has made its appearance at Killeen. A JackBon county farmer claims to have gathered and ginned from nine acres of land this year 12 bale3 of cotton, each bale weighing from five to six hundred pounds. The estimated sugar crop for Texas this year is 14,000,000 pounds. The State could easily produce 1, 000,000,000 pounds and still have an abundant rich bottom acreage for cotton or nee. The packing house at Ft Worth has been standing idle for want of material. This is a sad commentary upon the lack of thrift among Texas farmers, who continue to eat meat raised elsewhere, paying for it, a price covering profit to numerous dealers besides freight. Jacobo Morales, a prominent citizen of Brownsville, having been missing from his ranch sometime, search was made and his body was found pierced by bullets. It is be lieved that he was killed because he knew something regarding the mur der of Francisco Cisneros, who was killed in the same neighborhood a short time since. Between 2 and 3 o'clock Mon day morning William Lloyd, colored, shot Shew Mosely through the body, the ball entering under the right nipple and passing through his body. The wound is thought to be fatal. The difficulty grew out of a settle ment which Lloyd claimed Mosely owed him. The shooter was arrest ed Monday morning and jailed. The premium of S100 offered by Barney Gibbs for the best essay proposing a plan for the investment of permanent school funds was awarded to Messrs. Erskine Wil liams, of Fort Worth, and T. J. Middleton, Editor of the Waxahachie Mirror, being divided between them. The plan of Mr. Williams was to in vest it in loans on farm land at 10 per cent interest, and that of Mr. Middleton was to lend it to school districts for the construction and equipment of school houses. A party of armed and mounted bandits went to a house on the Pal mito ranch, about thirty miles from Brownsville, a few nights ago and captured the daughter of Francisco Jaramio, the train robber who was killed last Oanuary whjle fleeing from the sheriffs posse, and endeavored to make her tell where her father had buried his share of the proceeds of the robbery, but failing to get any information from her they got her husband and while taking him to the woods to hang him he escaped un hurt. Engineer Walker and Fireman MaDonell, who were injured m the wreck of the northbound Sants Fe passenger near Ardmore, X T., Sun day evening, were brought to Gum& ville on a special Monday morning. Both men are in a critical condition. An examination discloses that none of McDonell's bones are broken, but his injuries are internal, his tounge and throat being scalded and his lungs affected. Walker is suffering intense pain, two of his ribs being fractured, the left leg being broken in two places, and his spine injured. Captain Hardie, in command of troop G, Third United States cavalry, who is on a scouting exneditinn down the Rio Grand river in company with a force of state rangers undei Cantain McNeil and also thn mtv marshal of Laredo and others, dis Datched a courier to Fort MRTnt.ns.li. in Laredo, calling for reinforcements at once. Monday evening a force oi infantry, mounted on the post band's horses, numbering about twenty-five men, were ordered out. The report comes later that Captain Hardie and his forces hnvn hppn surrounded by Catarina Garza's men. Burleson county elected the fol lowing delegates to the senatorial convention at Brenham, December 29th: S. D. Martin, J. W. Ragsdale, James Philp, S. N. Burliff, F. M. Griffin, W. J. Moore, A. J. -Radford, G. W. Grant J. C. Barnett, J. C. Jones, J. W. Wood, J. W. Alford, U. S. Williams, R. H. Morgan, Sam G. Ragsdale, Geo. A. Jackson, A. Y. Compton, W. M. Robinson, Cyrus Hope, J. A. Bowers, H. G. King, W N. Khrone and E. F. Jordon. Delegates instructed for W. W. Sear cy for state senator, and requesting noinineo for senator to vote for Hon. R. Q. Mills first, last and all the time for United States senator. SCIENTIFIC MISCEIiLAJSY. ELECTBICAL PAKCEL-DELIVERT. An electrical house-to house par cels exchange has been proposed by a London electrician, Mr. A. R. Ben- net. A little electric railway with two tracks one above the other would be laid under the btreets in a tunnel about two feet wide and three feet high, and by side tunnels would branch into the houses of subscrib ers. To send a parcel, a signal would first be given the central sta tion for a truck. This would be quickly received, when the parcel would be placed upon it and the truck returned to the central station, to be dispatched from there to the subseriber designated. The truck would be unloaded automatically, a bell signalling the parcel. The production of positive photo graphs direct from the camera has been announced in Germany, this markable result being secured by adding small quantities of a substi tuted sulpho urea to the developer. Successful trials were made with aliyl and phenyl sulpho-urea added to eikonogen; but sulpho-urea itself, while acting similarly, gave unsatis factory results. ELECTBICAL JIBE-EXTINGUISHING. In a fire extinguishing system, the building is provided with a chemical reservoir, from which pipes lead to a jar of acid near the ceiling of each room. The jar also con tains a cartridge, connected with an open circuit battery. The thermom eter in each room is set at any de sired point say 80 and in case of fire tho1 jnercury rises to that point and closes the electric circuit. This explodes the cartridge, a valve drops, the chemicals are precipita ted into the room, and the number of the room is signalled. This ar rangement is supplemented by a se ries of -dry pipes, and, in case the chemicals fail to put out the fire, the room can be flooded with water by turning a cock on the outside of the building. SCIENTIFIC HOBSE TRAINING. Not the least curious of recent ap plications of science is the use of spectacles for the production of high-stepping horses. The spec tacles, designed and first made by a London firn. of opticians, consist of eye-enclosing frames of stiff leather and deep concave glasses of large size. They cause the ground in front of the horse to appear raised, and he accordingly steps high. Per sistence in the use of the spectacles on young animals is said to give won derful results. It is suggested that spectacles are also often desirable for correcting the vision of horses, and that certain vices such as shy ing, which isgenerally due to short sight might be cured by means of eye-glasses. L Many savage tribes constantly use without harm the flesh of animals killed with Jjoisoued weapons; and in recent investigations with animals killed by various poisons such as strychine, tartarized antimony and eserine the flesh was found to be of impaired flavor and to produce no ill effects. A boring at Brohl, on the Rhine, has been worked for carbonic acid for 50 years but its supply is now failing on account of the opening of eight other borings, which are now in operation near it. Wednesday night at about 8 o'clock Mrs. J. A. Jones, wife of city marshal , of Hubbard city, was suf fering with toothache, and used laudanum and cocaine to ease the pain. Not being well acquainted with the drug she took an overdose, and died from its effects in forty-five minutes. No fiddler ever gets tired of his own music. A ward of the tax-payers An of fice holder.
