The Laredo Times claims that throughout its existence it has favored tb.e devising of some means - f oiT confining the State convicts within the penitentiary walls and at. the same time make them self-supporting, and has all along advocated the establish ing of factories in Texas to manufacture the raw materials of the State; hence it. affords us pleasure to reproduce in this issue the remarks of Hon. George "W". Glasscock, made in a speech at Georgetown on last Saturday. There is no question, in the opinion of the Times, but what Texas and its people could be greatly benefited by the erection of large factoriss within walls, suffiiently large to confine and eiriployall of'the State convicts in manufacturing the raw ma terials of Texas into cloth, furni ture, etc. It would give an in creased demand for raw cotton, raw -wool, timber, etc., save freight both ways, prove profit able to bpth the people and the State government, render the escape of convicts much less liable and compete far less with the free laDor of the State than in working convicts on farm and railroad" work- Then the people of Texas could wear cloth made m . Texas or Texas cotton and wool, use furniture made in Tex as of Texas wood and it would keep many millions of dollars annually from going out of the State, greatly , increasing the prosperity and happiness of the people. . , -This -proposition will seem .selfish-'frorii -the --standpoint. m&'.

Tom Ransom, a Tonsorial Artist, Tries to Shave the Universe With . a Hatchet. Toni Ransom, colored, an; em ploye of the shaving-parlor next door to the Central hotel, began an elaborate celebration of the Christmas festivities at an early stage of the game. He started off brisk enough and while his iamboree jubilee did not last long, he made things exceeding ly lively for a season. After erettine: thoroughly saturated with corn juice and other intoxi cants he essayed to take in the city. He imagined himself the only barber in the shaving par lor of creation, and .possessing himself of a convenient' hatchet and a blacking brush, ie sallied forth to lather and shave the universe. The glass -windows in the barber shop "were the first objects that attracted his atten-. tion. These he demolished on short order; dealing each pane of glass a single blow, and at the same time yelling like a con quering , Comanche, His next coup was at Lehmann's old cor ner. Here he tried to shave the. plastering off a brick wall, and was succeeding admirably when Policeman Lockett happened along.

Charley Edwards, the able "Washington correspondent of the Houston Post, pays Major Sayers the following neat com phment: " There is no member of the Texas delegation who has as many close friends, perhaps, as Joe Sayers. He is trusted to a greater extent than any man in congress on either side. ' He is the hardest worker in congress and can always be found in his committee room. He has saved more money for his country than any man who has ever been at the head of the appropriations committee, and it is positively refreshing to see how the repub lican members of that committee defer to him on all matters be fore the committee. They are loud in their protestations against his voluntary retirement from congress and proclaim it a serious loss to the Nation. Major Sayers has been in congress nearly fourteen years, and so busy has he been and so closely has ho stuck to his duties that he has never made a trip to either New York or Baltimore. He is essentially a worker and not a talker., Those are the men who accomplish results here, and Texas has as'many of them as any State. It is a good thing for Buffalo Bayu that Savers will be here this year. It is largely due to him that that great enterprise is so far advanced as it is and I will soon take occasion to give the history of how that work was done."
