Planting lii.-h Potatoes.
The Italy News Herald reports the
eale in that city last week or eighty
bushels of Irish Dotatoos to Mr. W. J.
Champ who will plant some twenty
acres in potatoes. The fame paper
says that Mr. Hester will plant forty
busheis of potatoes, ai.d other fa mers
are put ing in from one-half to two
acres each. The News-Herald says j
the diversification idea ha» struck
that section hard and we may reason - I
ably expect to see quite a number of
farmers in that section payiDg debts
this summer with potato moDey.
Irish potatoes do well in Ellis county
and are a payug crop.

christian and a man who was loved
and respected by all wno knew him.
He moved to Waxahachie about

Matilda Fletcher's Lecture.
Mrs. Matilda Fletcher lectured last
night at the Cumberland Presbyterian
church to a large and appreciative au
dience. Her subject was "Is Man An
Angei?" and all who were so fortu
nate as to hear it say it was one of the
best lectures ever delivered in this
city by any one. The lecture was fuil
of thought and strong in good sense,
yet spiced with happy hits of humor
and genuine wit. She speaks without
notes, presenting her ideas in a forci
ble manner, throwing her true wo
manly soul Into the wortc. She kas a
sweet, musical voice, a mind of high
culture, together with all the genuine
elements of oratory.
There is more Catarrh in this sec
tion of the country than all other dis
eases put together, and until the last
few years was supposed to be incura
ble. For a great many years doctors
pronouuced it a local disease, and |
prescribed local remedies, and by
constantly failing to cure with local
treatment, pronounced it incurable.
Selene ^ has proven catarrh to be a
constitutional disease, and therefore
requires constitutional treatment.
Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufactured by
F. J- Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio, is
the only constitutional cure on the
market. It Is taken internally in
doses from 10 drops to a teaspoonful.
It acts directly on the blood and
mucous surfaces of the system. They
offer one hundred dollars for any
case it fails to care. Send for circulars
and testimonials.

Tkt I. * Q. N. Extcasio·.
G reding to in progr*·* t» the L A
G. N. extension between Paly end
Mertuse. The route of the road
through Italy hee not yet been defi
nitely decided upon, but the survey
ors are now runsjing final routée out
of Italy toward Fort Worth. From
Mr. Cal Reynold», who was in the city
this week, we learn that the new sur
vey rune arrose hie farm and up Oak
branch going about two miles weal of
Mt. Peak and crossing the Santa Fe
at or near Wyatt. It is Mr. Reynolds'
opinion that the Dallas branch line
will start from somewhere in his
neighborhood. lh« new survey for
the main line, he says, shortens the
distance to Fort Worth several miles
and giV'-e the road good level country.
The Italy Newe-ilerald speaking of
the branch line this week »hj>:
If thρ 1. & G. Ν. should decide to
start the VYaxahachie-DallHs exten
sion from I nly they conld t>et a line
through the t>e*t territory in tb* coun
ty tind without coming in loo close
contact with other railros-i lines, by
running via Nash to east Waxahachie,
thence to Rocketi, Henry and Ferris,
crossing the Centra! railroad at the
latter place. * * h very thing ρ >ints
to the building of the extension to
Daha-i and U will, as we *ald in last
week's paper, be a log thii'g for Italy,
even if it stiris out from Uzro, at thin
is almost sure to be the terminal ol
the v\ axahaehit-Dall <s line.
There is little doubt that this road
will build into Waxahachie if suitable
right-of way and depot grounds can
b-j secured. This rests entirely with
I the citizens of this city, ana those
owning property over which the pro
posed line will run should be as liberal
a» possible with their neighbors in
pricing Homt. Remember that your
home people have to pay for this
right of way, and are entitled to the
assistance of the property owners
«long the route of the road.

At the Opera House.
Despite the cold weather of the last
two or three davs a large audience
greeted the "Bretzy Time" company
at the opera house last night. The
performance was high class in every
respect and the work of the members
of the cast was exceptionally good.
It was a whirlwind of merriment from
the time the curtain iirst went up un
til it went down on the last act. The
specialties were good.
