Mr. | Mackin will be on duty every night until the mail from all the night trains has been worked and distrib uted. Heretofore mail poucjies ar living on the night trains have been j left at the depots until the next morning. Under the new arrange ment they will be taken to the post office immediately unon llie arrival of the train and their contents '(lis- '■ tributed. Mail for the city ami rural carriers will be transferred to thesel departments while mail for local de- ! lively will be placed in the boxes of | patrons.

Texas, June 2\ A sweeping vii tory for progressive eii iey of Texas was had yesterday in the supreme court when it sustained ilie city of Austin in levying a pi ο rata assessment against property for tree! paving purposes. II was Mrlrd City of Austin vs. Joseph Nail·, and 'carries, a judgment for $1.16S. re versing the judgments of the trial and appellate courts and rendering judgment in favor of the city of Austin It finds that all things un der the ordinance were done correct ly, the suit being aimed at the stat utes. It was charged that such a pro ceeding was not taxation, but in ex ercise of the right of eminent do main, to which the court answers: "But this is in our opinion a radicel misconception of the law." The court defines eminent domain as taking specific property, not mon ey, upon paying compensation. The other takes money, the only compen sation being that it will be appropri ated according to law. It was 110 at tempt to take the lot or property, but a mere levy to make the owner pay a sunt of money to defray costs of improvements, "and which is pro portioned to him upon principles the justice of which can not be gain said." Therefore, it is not taking proper ty under eminent domain. Continuing, the opinion upholds the validity of the statutes author izing laws; the levy, reading as fol lows : law which is claimed as authorzing liic procedure in this case is un constitutional, in that it authorizes the collection of the imposition lie fore the work is done am! before the benefits have accrued. Hut we (hink it not unusual to levy taxes tor work to be performed. At each session of the legislature taxes are authorized to be levied necessary to meet the expenses of the state government for the next two years and appropria tions are made for the payment of the money collected or services to be rendered, and work to be per formed as it may arise. In no other [way could the state government be j administei ed." Hut il is also urged "that the pleadings and evidence showed that tin judgment sought was for a tax and to fix a lien upon appellee's property which added to the ordinary ta\'~ otherwise levied !>y appellant for the years loot! and 1007, and would subject the property of appel lee for each of said years <o a tax in exc· ss of the constitutional limit." But it has been expressly held by this court that the constitutional 'mit le 11 rred to loes not embraie the-e local special assessments. N'alle. who is one of the largest propei > owners in Austin will have to pax his shaie of the paving ex pense. and cities generally are en abled to pave heir streets and com pel abutting ι .operty owners to pay their share. \ ΐ ■ <mη!

County .lodge Spencer states that he has applications almost every j day from Oonfedrate veterans and widows of veterans for pensions who are not entitled to a pension. It seems that some do not fully under stand the law under which pensions are now granted by the state. Under ι the new law a veteran must have! lived in the state prior to January j 1. 1S80. and widows of veterans must have lived in the state prior to March 1. 1880. Before a widow ran get on the pension list she must: show that she is not possessed of ι property in excess of $1,000, that she ι I was married prior ao March 1, 1880, and that she has not remarried since the death of her husband. This statement is made for the benefit of those who contemplate applying for pensions so that they may know j ■ whether or not they are entitled to j relief under the above provisions. Deafness Cannot be Cured by tocal applications, as they cannot i reach the diseased portion of the ear. ι There is only one way to cure deaf-! ; ness, and that is by constitutional' I remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucous j ! lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube is inflamed you have a ! bubbling sound or imperfect hearing and when it is entirely closed, deaf ί ness is the result, and unless the In | flammation can be taken out and this I tube restored to its normal condition! ι hearing will be destroyed forever; j nine cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh, which is nothing but an in-, flamed condition of the mucous sur-| • faces.
