It took Count Tolstoi five years to gather the historical material for "War and Peace." The preliminary writings from which the book sprang are now in the Rumjaneoff imraeum, Momow. But they had a hard time getting there. Some years ago, when Countess Tolstoi was ill, a careless servant took the manu scripts and threw them into a dis ased canal in the park near the house. They were discovered after several weeks and rescued.

Beall Accorded a Rousing Ovation by the People of Ellis County. Last night witnessed the most magnificent demonstra tion ever known in the history of Ellis county. It was the celebration by the people of Waxahachie and Ellis county of the nomination of Hon. J. A. Beall for congress to represent the new fifth district. The ratification of Mr. Beall's nomination was carried out in accordance with the program published in this paper yesterday afternoon. A stand for the speakers had been erected on the law# on the south eide of the courthouse ary) chairs and benches provided for the accom modation of the vast crowd.' The stand was beautifully decorated with faff*. flowers and bunting. Over the stand floated a larpe American flair and Ju».t beneath the flap was a Ιοηκ streamer bearing this legend: "Welcome to Our Friends." Fully two hours before the arrival of the special train frorp Hlllsboro people bepan assembling on the square from all parts of Ellis coun ty to do honor to the young demo cratic chieftain. When the train reached the Katv depot at 8:.K) bear ing Mr. Real! and a party of friends numbering about three hundred and fifty persons the atmosphere was r«nt with ch«*ers from thousands of throats. As Mr. Reall debarked from the train and took hie piece in a waiting carriage a military salute was fired by the Dunlap Rifles. The hand struck up a patriotic aiç1 ; and the procession bejran forming. It f * a magnificent pageant of brilliant torches u£id flarinjr trum pets. The procession moved up Ropers street headed hv the Trum pet Corps, Dunlap Rifles, Firemen's Rand, Fire Department, Mr. Reall and accompanying party in car | riajr»-* and citizens on foot. Arriv injc at the speakers' stand Mr. Reall mounted it leaning on the arm of I)r. Douglas». In front of the stand and on every side was η surging mass of enthusiastic citizens, the crowd heinp variously estimated from itVWi to 4000 persons. Hon. T. J. Cole 'acted as master of ceremonies and introducing Hon. IS. P. Skinner, who delivered the address of welcome, Mr. Cole said: of Ellis county's favorite kohs will now address you, who needs no introduction at my hands, Hod. S. P. Skinner. As Mr. Skinner came to the front of the stand he was κ reeled with ai terrific outburst of applause. Mr. ' Skinner delivered one of his char-, aeteristic eloquent addresses, lh said in part : Fellow citiaens ljulie* and gentle-1 men: This is a fitting climax to one of the most hotly contested political warfares thai was ever fought in the State of Texas ; and tonight we have viewed this magnificent papeant so expressive of the feel in (re and senti ment of the people of this county in welcoming home the chleft an whom w«- have chosen to hear the standard of our democracy in the new Hfth district. History has been busy for the past two weeks wearing off the gold cloth that now has its final tii- j umph in the honors that have been ' showered upon the favorite son of Ellis county. We want to say to- 1 nipht in welcoming the representa tives of the democracy of Hill and j Bosque count it-14 that a week ago there came up a Macedonian cry asking for assistance and we gave . I it; and tonight we welcome you, bringing the hero .crowned with new honore and new friendships. [Ap plause.] In the fierceness of that conflict, gentlemen from Hill and Bosque, we told you that we loved you, and we ask tonight tiiat you bear hack the tiding* to your people as it com**· from the flush and fullness of victory, thai we love you still for the work that you have done In this fierce political contest. Fel low citizens this is not the time for speaking, it is the time when hon orable citizenship that was scattered all over Hill county can vent itself by crying out in loud cries of vic tory because our chieftain has re turned. W'e want to say to these citizens from Hill and Bosque that we ask you to behold the citizenship of Ellis as it bears testimony tonight of every word we said in Hill and Bosque [ApplauseJ. And my fel low citizens, above it all we do feel proud tonight that from the hotness of that contest, the fierceness of which those only car. know who stood upon the firing line and did battle for the brilliant young son of Ellis county. From that contest we rejoice tiiat he brought back what he carried to Hill county—a spot; less reputation and a good name, and an unchallenged character; foç we realize, my fellow citizens, that since the in.mortal Lee set Appo matox as a gem in ttje crown of modern heroism with honorable de feat, that we would rather he would have returned home without victory than f<>r his name to have been challenged by the citizens of Hill county. Mr. Skinner closod his speech with a very pretty poetical parody. The next speaker w a* Judge W. Morrow, of Hiiisboro. He spoke of the political affiliations between Ellis and Hill counties, saying that Hill had in part paid back the debt j frratitiub she owed Ellis. Judge j Morrow was followed by several | speakers who made short talks, in j which the cainpaitna in Bosque and Hill was frequently referred to. It was about 11:'*) o'clock when Mr. Cole introduced Miss Minnie Sims, who, in a few well chosen words, presented Mr. Beall with an elegant boquet of rose*. As Mr. Beall advanced to take the proffered flowers, he was greeted by round after round of applattse. In accept; ing the beautiful emblems Mr. Beall said that >ince the earliest period of time, flowers had been Regarded as | symbolical of purity. He spoke -for about twenty minutes and in the j beginning of hi- speech he disclaim-I ed the \ irtues and honor spoken for him by the \ arious speakers. He j paid a very prettj tribute to his aired mother, who occupied a place* on the stand. He said that it was her lo\e and prayers that had in spired him through all the vicissi tudes of life. He referred briefly to the fictif made in Bosque and Hill counties for his nomination, «aying that it was tiot made for him hut for Ellis county. Before closing his speech he made a public ac knowledgement of the able assist ance rendered him by his lat*· oppo nent in this county, Hon. S. P. Skinner. To the citizens of the new fifth district, the good people of Dalla*. Rockwall, Bosque, Hill and Ellis counties, he pledget! his best devotion and assurance that his aim would be to serve xaeh and every part of the district with the same fidelity and devotion, being partial to no section or interest. FROM DALLAS. The following letter from Mr. R P. Holland, of Dallas, to Mr. Ο s ce Goodwin, will be read with a great deal of interest by the people of Waxahachie.
