There is a dreary monotony of nothing to report from this section, so you must not be surprised at the short ness of my letters (espeeialh- when you have taken to using the bine pencil so ferocioush'. Can't you take another trip off?) The thermometer has been on a spree. Last Tuesday it was down to 70, and since then np to 98. It has been hot and moist. You see, altho' we have had up. rains at this point, yet there have been rains above and, below us. Monday and Tuesday (2nd. and 3rd.) there were heavy rains in tovn, and Arroyo del Sanz got up, and so did the river. Then it rained below us, and has been doing so, if we ma' jndge by the amount of lightning, in the S. S. W. So our atmosphere has been muggy, close and hot hot hot. I am covered with prickly heat, especially on my back be tween the shoulder-blades. Every now and then I have to jump up and scratch. God bless the man who invented'dnor posts? There is a big cloud just this moment (2:45 p. m.) in the North east, with rain and wind, coming thi- way. I hope it will get here and pour down, but I shan't be lieve it is raining till I see the wa ter running o.n the ground (to use the words of my skeptical English frie'nd) It is certainly dark, and the sun is hid.' I see Mr. Seabury denies the dis tress in Zapata county. It may be exaggerated, but I think our rep resentative goes too far. Still, he may have good reasons, and I re member that sometime in March or April I wrote yon that, accord ing to the report of a traveler from this ranch, they were selling corn at 25 cents an almud much cheap er than in this county. What is the objection to Bexar county 1 I see lats of petitions are out, protesting against being put with Bexar. , IT DID RAIN. Hurra! It did rain ! The water is running.. It began at 2:57 and lasted till 3:18. It poured down in torrents, with a brisk wind, and the thermometer dropt from 93 to 79. It will help the cotton euor- mouslv and save the small lot of corn that was just alive$ just gasp ing but the larger part of the corn is lost. A friend just in from La Costa says that there were several rains last week, so he left his cattle, that he had just started to drive here, behind. Where are those grapes! El Soltero. L,ong-Lost Ring Fqund Twenty years ago George K. Barney lost on his farm, near the the Twin Bridges, Chadd's Ford, Pa., a handsome gold ring set. with sapphires. Recently, while plough ing on his farm, he noticed some thing glistening in the furrow, and upon bending down to see what it was, he discovered the long lost golden 'trinket. Despite the fact that it had lain in the earth for twenty years, ir was in a perfect state of preservation, and needed only a little rubbing to restore its brilliance. AFTER CZOLGOSZ. Buffalo, N. Y. The police have discovered a conspiracy to take the life, of Czolgosz.
