' On the trip down Baron des Plan ches and party spent one night at Santa Gertrudes ranch, three miles from Kingsville, where they were hospitably entercained and shown the wonderful development and possibilities of that thriving section. It is sufficient to say that the en tire trip aiong the Gulf Coast-Line was a revelation and will find a prominent place in the Baron's re port upon the matchless resources of the "Italy of America."

MUSICAL SMAiLS. through which he had passed. His visit to Matamoros was a delightful one, Baron des Planches finding many interesting features to dis tract" his attention from business cares. . Tht party left "last night at 8 Marvelous facts are given to us by the hardworking scientists. Many of the inconspicuous members of the lower orders have been brought to our respectful admiration by the naturalists. Now it is the slimy snail that commands our admira tion. A German scientist points out that the snail can draw immense weights, and now a Frenchman claims that there are few, if any, an imals which have a keener apprecia tion of music than snails. This nat uralist is M. M. S. Jourdain, and he expresses his views on the subject in a paper which he has read to the Prench Biological society. Place some snails on a pane of glass, he says, and you will find that they will make sounds similar to those which a person can. produce by wetting his fingers and rubbing them around a tumbler. Complete airs, he thinks, can be produced in this way. This may be the next vaudeville novelty. Promissory and Vendor's lien notes for sale at this office.
