An overworked crew had orders to take siding at Millheim a night or so ago, and await the passage of a through train. The Cartmel Lodge Appoints a Committee to Personally Thank the Newspa pers For Kindly Notices. There is at least one organiza tion in Brenham mind we do not say there are not others that knows how not only to ap preciate the newspapers of the city, but also how to make them conizant of that appreciation by formal manifestation of the same. At a regular meeting of Cart mel Lodge Tuesday night a committee of three was appoint ed to personally thank the Ban ner and Press for kindly notices made of the order, its meetings and its members, from time to time. This committee, which consists of Hon. Ben. S. Rogers, Dr. H. C. Rees and Prof. "W. A. Jakel, has not yet made a formal report. From the well known versatility of the gentlemen composing the committee it - is safe to say that both publica tions will feel highly compli mented by a visit from them, as well as amply compensated for whatever benefits they may have incidentally conferred on the three link brethren.

The list of holiday marriages was augmented Thursday by two weddings. At Zionsville Mr. Hermann Gascamp and Miss Henrietta Kokemoor were united in mar riage in the presence of a large number of friends and relatives, Rev. Strickert officiating. Near Stone, at the residence of Mr. H.F. Kolwes, Mr. Hermann Runge and Miss Annp- Kolwes were united in marJPge, Rev. Apfelbach officiating.

Our hearts are sad and full of sympathy, . for the be reaved parents, brothers and sisters. Death has robbed them of all that was sweetest and brightest. Miss Alvina was con scious that the end was near and bade a tender farewell to rela tives and friends. There was nothing left undone that loving hands and hearts could do : but "God doeth all things well" and our loss is Heaven's gain. Her remains were followed by a large concourse of friends to the "Wes ley cemetery and there laid to rest, Rev. Browning, of Bren ham, conducting the last sad rites. - Santa-at Chappell Hill. The following unique invitation has been received by a number of the young people at this place for an entertainment in the Meth odist church at Chappell Hill tonight: "Through the efforts of the Epworth League and Baptist and Methodist Sunday Schools we have induced Santa Claus to make us a visit. For his recep tion we have erected a snow house which he will adorn with all the beauties so dear to his little friends' hearts. He will leave the North Pole in time to. be with us on the night of Dec. 24, 1897. And your presence is desired that he may have a most hearty welcome." Back From the East. Major Abe Harrison is back from a trip to the North and East including the cities of St. Louis, Cincinnati and New York. His trip was a combination one of business and pleasure. "While in St. Louis he attended a con vention of the officers of the Volunteer Guard of the different States and made a speech which attracted considerable attention from the newspaper of the Mound City. In Cincinnati he spent several pleasant days with relatives, and in New York he placed some largo orders for spring stock for tho Harrison Dry Goods Co. 6 v ,?. i-a-sartfrflEX.-"-v-, , xv-.

The' daily papers might do well to report the state of the marriaee market under "Angling Notes." A woman does not deplore the death of her first husband after i she marries again, but the second' husband often does. A fellow often thinks a girl by any other name would be as sweet, but he finds out his mis take after he gives her his own. Many a man after marriage wishes he had one-tenth of the money he had fooled away on other girls, to buy a baby car riage with. "When a bride has been married about three weeks she begins to write home for the old clothes she refused to take with her. Before marriage every man has a theory about managing a wife; , but after marriage its a condition and not a theory that confronts him. II. E. LUHN. JIT i i I " ' jjte. DRUGS BEEXHA3I .TEXAS. - ' .
