A DIFFERENCE OF OPINION. There seems to be a difference of opinion as to the expediency of opening the Rio Grande to naviga tion, as it is thought by some who are interested in the subject of irrigation iu this valley that the water of the stream will be used to much greater advantage, if devot ed exclusively to irrigation purposes, thau if used for naviga tion. It is contended that the further development of irrigation m this section might be seriously lampered, should it be decided by the two governments interested in the Rio Grande to deepen the stream and use it for navigation, as there might not be sufficient water for both purposes. If this be correct, it may be that the sug gestion of The Herald, whieh was thp ontPTowth of the recomenda- tion made by vjapt. jauwm iui the cutting bi a channel from Brazos Santiago to the river, was based upon mistaken idea. It would perhaps be well for those most interested in the subject to look into the matter, before Congress man Garner goes ahead with his undertaking to secure the deepen ing of the river for navigation, and see that nothing may be done that v?ould possibly be prejudicial to he best interests of this section. JFOR A BROWNSVILLE EX HIBIT. A move is on foot to establish a permanent exhibit of Brownsville products, which shall be displayed in suitable rooms in charge of a competent person, who will explain all about the various specimens and also give any information desired regarding the country and its re sources to homeseekers or other visitors. It is hoped that a combi nation of the various clubs organiz ed here lately may be effected, and a united move towards the proper advertising and promotion of the development of the country be made, which shall be entirely dis tinct from any individual interests. This is a wise move, and it is sin cerely hoped that it may succeed. A subscription list for the purpose of maintaining the exhibit is be ing circulated and so far seems to 5e gaining a very encouraging sup port. Further particulars of the move will be published as soon as obtained. 'The Texas legislature makes laws, and the courts unmakes them. Some people blush to look at the jnaked truth.

San Benito Land & Water Co Experiments in New York Prove Their Usefulness. New York, Jan. 28. New York's police dogs were put into active service earlv this morning for the first time. Experiments with the J "Rpltrinn Vinrtnris hrotirmt from ' ' Europe and trained with an especial J view to service as an adjunct to the city's police force, proved the ef fectiveness of their instructions. Sham attacks on uniformed men by policemen in plain clothes were promptly resented by the dogs, only the muzzles on the animals preventing serious harm being done to the aggressors. The dogs a"er their exercise uie mn - . . .... 1- . t between Prospect Park and Coney Island after midnight were taken away before daylight, but will be on duty tonight at 10 o'clock and kept working until 3 o'clock tomor row morning. For the present they will be restrained by leashes, but after they learn fcthe precinct they will be allowed to roam at large. A r o w of steam-heated dog houses has been erected in the rear of the Parkville police station for their accommodation. The Farmer His Own Seedsman. As far as possible every farmer should select his seed in his own neighborhood or his own farm. He should select seed with a view of obtaining a size and type of plant that suits the soil aud seasons of his locality. It is highly pro bable that all the desirable quali ties cannot be combined in any one type of cotton, for example. We should like earliness, hardiness, prolifieness, high per cent of lint, large bolls, aud long staple. It is probable that some of these quali ties are antagonistic to each other, and consequently all of them can never be fully attained in one vnritv. But larere bolls, earliness. and at least fair prolifieness, can be obtained in short staple cotton. This has been proved manv times. No Substitute Has Survived. All sorts of substitutes have been tried for newpaper advertising, but "one of them has stood the test of time and experience.

There is only one way to cure deafness and that is by constitutional remedies. Deainess is caused by an inflamed con dition of the mucous lining of the Eus tachian Tube. When this tube is mflam ed you have a rumbling- sound or imper fect hearinir, and when it is entirely clos ed, Deafness is the result, and unless the nflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroj-ed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed condi tion of the mucous surfaces.
