The Crop Situation,
In conversation with the farmers
and *t cfcmen from the different parte
of the connty who are here attending
court hie week we learn that the situ
tion throughout the county is very
encouraging notwithstanding the fact
that the drouth continues. Water is
becoming quite ccarce in some locali
ties and a great many farmers are
hauling, but they say the prospects
are very bright for a splendid crop
this year. To bear out our assertion J
that everything is in good condition,1
the farmers with whom we have con- !
versed with in the past few days tell
us that wheat is an excellent shape.
It was not injured to any great extent
by the freeze of some weeks ago.
The light rains which fell before and
after the freeze has helped the young '
plant materially and it looks fresh and j
healthy and is growing nicely. The
ground is said to be in excellent con- !
dltion, contains a great deal of moist
ure and plows nicely. Farmers say
that the ground is being put in splen
did shape for plantiog. This part of
Texas has been dry before and things ;
loosed a little gloomy, buta good kind !
providence has never yet failed to
send refreshing ehuwers to this goodly
land in time to make a living for man
and beast that dwell therein. There
fore, let us not despair, say our pray
ers, do our whole duty and trust to
him who doeth all things well, and
the good citizens of Ellia county will
live to be as prosperous a» any people.

Deafnesà Cannot be Oured
by local applications, as they cannot reach the
diseased portion of the ear. There Is only one
way to cure deafness, and that Is by constitution
al remedies. Deafness, is caused by an inflamed
condition of the mucous lining of tne Kustachian
Tube. When this tube gets inflamed you have a
rumbling sound or Imperfect hearing, and when
It Is entirely closed deafness Is the result, and un
less the lullamatlon can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition, hearing
will be destroyd forever : nine cases out of ten are
caused by catarrh, which is nothing but an in
flamed condition of the mueuous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars for any case
of deafness (caused by catarrh) that caa not be
cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure. Send for circulars

house last night was witnessed by one
of the largest audiences ever assem
bled in an opera house in Waxaharhie.
"A Senator's Daughter" is a strong
bill and it was presented by the Cur

The members of the cast not only re
peated their lines in a perfect manner
but sct*d their parts in a way that
made them quite realistic. Harry
Lee's song and dance act made a hap
py bit. At the end of the third act
three handsome rocking chairs were
given away.

War," a pretty southern romance, is :
one of tbe strongest plays belonging J
to Mr. Curtiss' repertoire and it never
fails to mate a nit. In one act two
