M r. Balidwin was a native of Nat cliez and comesl frtian onte of the tinest families in Adlas county. He was a genial, whole-soul :man, lils.ral to a fault and true as steel toA a friend. His death was very unexpected, his illness being of short duration. On May 25th lie returned fromi Natchez, with the excursion ists, looking the picture of health. Surely we know not at what hour the Son of Man eoneth. Tie re mains were taken to Natchez for in termient.

Mosely and B. F. Young. A Novel of the Texas Revolutloa. The Gazette has received with tihe com pliments of tie autlhor a nicrly bound volume, entitled "(iuy RayllOlld" iand himich is a very pretty and intensely inter eating story of tlw Texas Revolution. The author of this very charming niovel is Mr. E. P. Alabury, the well-known and popular bridge tcontractor, who ies done a great deal of we,rk in Tenlas and is so well known to our people. The story of "(-uy Raymond" is an effort to preserve in an interesting and picturealsque formn, eine of the most in spiring and heroic features in the history of the great outhwest. As the story deals with the revolution for Texas Inde pendence, it is necetarily one of action as well as the portrayal of unique clhar acter. In his story, Mr. Albury has given us wihat we instinctively feel, tlw accurate specimenw of the elemental qualities of a strong manllhood: suc'h lmaterials, in gia. bad and indifferent phases, that went to the making of the vanguard forces in the great struggle of Southwestern civiliza tion, aUl eventually, gave form and col- t or to the larget commonwealth of the Union. hthe well defined figures of( piowneer America seem to have Ibenr units of strength rather than aggrega- s tions of diciplined force, and stood ott t in fine simlphcity against tile tarnished a thrluds of goldd anti silver which coni posedM the tattered fabric funuished by F old Spain as a Ibackground for the story a of early Teuxas. "Guy Rayniolid" is a niovel of mlanly i heroes, yet the attitude of the women ,f early Texas, in their relations to tlh-ir livesr and enviroinments, are clear andi delicately drawn. Thu lights and shadiown are well defined, as in tlie per,onalities of Lelloi ald Josefa. Time Indian char acter seems to have received a just esti mate in this story. Mr. Alsbury Ihas a cepted a reasonable mediau betwetn thne uble, red men of the idealist (oiqer, and the creature of total depravity oferied us by the present day inter preters of the peinng aborigine. This very charming story is injoying a .lemdid run and its popularity is well ,hstvd. The book is on sale at T. H. Hendmderson's book store and Tillnman's news stand, Natches, price $1.25. _ 'I'his has truly been of rains, but fair weather has come at last. Did you see the eclipse of the mounm last night?

BY MISS LAURA BONDURANT. "8I )4 yeo ask me whence these stories, osg these legends and traditions, I shold aaswer, I should tell you Prol the land of Louisiana. Where the pines grow so majestic, where the mighty Mississippi RolUeh onward to the ocean." Many and fascinating are the legends which cluster around the aboriginees the powerful Choctaws, the undaunted Chickasaws, the unconquerable Tensaw And thes the mighty Miissisippi, the geet river which for so many years was utnknown, unnoticed and unloved, except by the red man, who in his pirogue, glided swiftly down its water. The Missiseippi sings to us its soul stirring songs of the past, and these songs are echoed from the depths of our dense forests. What noble enterprise-. , what: hair-breadth escapes, what cruel wars, M.d stout hearts were she-lte-red and watched by these brave old forest guardians and the glorious Father of 0 Waters! Where the river makes its bend, (form ing a crescent), Bienville placed the cap a ital of the Louisiana territory-a city of t- historical foundation-gay, pleasure-lov ing New Orleans. New Orleans the mon ey spender, rather than the money saver. If she is arbitrary in her dislikes, high tempered, luxurious, it does not matter, for she is altogether charming. , She, too, has her stories to tell. At every toep we are reminded of the past and dominated by feelings aroused in no other city. Let us gather a few simple Sstories from her store house of legend stories of the aboriginees, of the river, of the forest, of New Orleans. We find that the Natchez and other Indians have left us traditions which I point to a common origin. They too, had Sa story of the flood. They believed that a deluge had destroyed mankind with the exception of a few people who had taken refuge on a high mountain, and then re-peopled the earth. Long before the Natchez had come to the banks of the Mississippi, when they were still brutal and ignorant, there ap p peared among them a man and a woman r who, they believed, had comelmrom the sun. The man told the Indians that he cause he had seen that they were unable to govern themselves, he had determined to come and show them how to live. His precepts were few and suited the people. After the old men of the tribe, who were deeply impressed, had held a meet ing, they decided to propose that this man be their sovereign. Refusing at first, after much persuasion he consented. lie prescribedho sacrifices, no libations, no offerings. The only form of which he gave them was the keeping of the sacred fre. After his death his children §ecaune known as "Suns," on account of their origin. When the French became acquainted with the Natchez they were in a state o, decline, and they knew it. One day the samcred fire was allowed to go out, and when the guardians discovered it they relighted the altar with the ordinary fine. A short time after this the llame thing happened in another temple andon its being discovered, they procured fire from the other altar. But this was profane fire and the nation was deprived of that rite which had been given then, by their first sovereign. The guardians of the sacred fire who had concealed the truth, now confessed it, and to the Natchez it was as their death knell. From that time on calamity after ca lamity rained down upon them. Tradi tion says that the guilty .guardian was locked up in a mound situated near tlIe present city of Natchez. He is doomed to work there until he can make a fire two sticks, which he continuously rubs together. Now and then a smoke issuet from the sticks and just as the sparka,be gi to fly, a deluge of tears from the wretche's eyes drowns out the tire. Tlhu the last of the unfortunate race is doomeu to oeaselei work and periodical fits ot hope and despair. Pauin southward a short distance from Natches we reach the place whenre the waters of the Ied River unite witll those of the Misamiippi, and immediate ly upon our imagination rises the picture of thame midnight burial of Hlerunando I Soto. He who had reveled in the halls of tlthe imperial Incas of P'eru, and there had smaed princely wealth, hlie, tile lower of knightly courts, had for three years roame like a vagranmlt over anmt inmmense territory, peopled with savages: lhetre at the mouth of the Red River Ihe was fatal to close his adventurous career. Ills wealth w gone and two-thirds of his companions were dead. A slow fever wast ed his powerful frame, and he ninks on the coach of sicknea, never to rise again. rhe Spanmiards cluster around hini and look with despair, first at their dying chieftan, and then at the omnious lhue of the bloody river now known as the Red. But )Deoto was not thle uman ti, murmur. With smiling lips and serene brow, hie calls his companions, ,one by one, asking their forgtvenet for any wrong dlone and named Alvarade ill, Iu0luMor. borrorwfully, silently, and at midnight, Sthey be discovered by the Indianl-, the few havy-hearted followers buriedl him in the depthi of the great river ihe had discovered. One hundred and thirty years after tlhe appeaUanc of Debloto on Louisiana soil, I we see aMother striking picture4 on iti shor~s-Lamaile with his banid of fort) follower taking pommeaion of all thl. land draned by the Misiseippi and it brmnch La e.le, born poor, educated for te- I oiasr, longed for and dlreaumed of ricle , and fame.
