Ily HIM On n Ilnntl. Cueko, Tox July lS.Otto Flack com mitted suicide at about 11 o'clock last night while slttlhg iu tho presence of several friends, The cause is not known nor hud ho oven intimated such an Intention. Mr. Flack was a bartender and un Inollensive young man about 23 years of age and well liked by all who know him. The in strument of destruction was a 44 call ber revolver, tho ball entering the right temple. All evidence goes to show that it was a sudden fit of tern porary insanity. Flack was seated"a little to the rear of the counter, while some two or three of his friends ware at the counter, none of them under the influenco of liquor. Flack called for the drinks, taking a lemonade for himself, the others named their re freshments. While the bartender was preparing them Flack, picked ,up a revolver and before any resistance could be offered sent the ball crush ing through his brain. He never ut tered a word and died iu about twenty minutes- Ho was removed to Sohu lonbmg to-day whoro his paronts reside, Itlmatlf Held Vp Dallas. July 18. Shortly aftor 1 o'clock yosterday morning, as' Mr. Ferdinand ltick'was returning home from tho park pavilion ball in com pany with a young lady, and while nearlng tho corner of Elm and Ervay streets, avolceoxclnimed, "Throw up your hands," and simultaneously therewith a dusky figure pointed a-sIx-Bhooter at his head. Mr. Hick felt it due to his fair companion not. to obey the order, and he proceeded to walk on. Ho had, however, ad vanced but a few paces until the com mand "hah" was repeated. Jus then two shadows emerged from the darknes of tho corner; two gloamlng-slx-shooters wero brought down on tho highwayman and two voices rang out, "Halt yourself, and throw up your bauds. " The two last speakers, were officers Mullen aud Williams, who Happened to bo reconnolterlng a suspected burglar, out tho high wayman in wait for Mr. Kick and his lady companion. Tho highway man, seeing himself iu tho jaws or death, surrendered unconditionally. He proved to bo a tall, dangerous looking negro with a Patagonian foot that it Is thought corresponds with the tracks recently left by a midnight, depredator In quiet homes on Young; and Harwood streots. His weapon proved to be a 45-callber six-shooter with a very long barrel and loaded to tho bilm. Ills arrest, which re flects credit on the oillcers making it and should place them on tho roll of promotion, brought a sonso of rollof to the minds of thousands Who had been reading with horror of attempts at highway robbery and w orso by a negrom all cflbrts had failed to cap ture. EUREKA. After Man) Years Artesian Wutejr Has at Last Boen Struck. It Is something like ton years since tho first attempt to bore an artesian well was mado iu Waco. That was made on tho hill where the old wator tanks once stood, near Fourthtoouth und Washington streets. Tho ma chlno for boring was an old ramshaole afi'air, moved by a horse aud was not much of a boro. Tho depth attalnd after many delays, was somo three or four hundred feet or two hundred, the faot of such indefiultenoss being that tho nowspapor roportors of ilu,t., day nover got tho depth, all thoy over did get, whilo trying to find out the depth, was to get left. The drill ing was stopped and the hole iu tho ground Is thero yet. Year after year artesian wolls were talked about and that was all until last year, when Mr. J. D. Boll undortook to boro for ar tesian wator on Bell's hill, not far from tho site whoro water lias now been struck. Several wolls wero at tempted and sunk to great depths when accidents to drills stopped tho work. Recently Mr. Jas. I. Moon began tho present well, near Ills ele gant homo on JBell's hill. He .seomt to have struck tho right partios to ' boro a well. With their lino and elaborate machinery thowell has gone down with wonderful rapidity, Mr. Moores' instructions being to go down until wator was found. Tills morning at 8 o'clock water was struck with a very strong vein. Work was kept up all day tho water being pumped out and tho drill kopt going. It Is tho opinion of thoso drilling tho well that tho pres ent stream would flow freoly from tho top if allowed to do so. A littlo af ter noon to-day twenty-five foet of water had been added to the well making a depth of 325 feet, Mr. , Moore brought into town with him u- quantity of the water which ho exhi bited on the street with pardonable pride. The water Is olear and soft but very strongly Impregnated with salt. It is u very strong solution but. exhibits to .the naked tongue no taste of sulphur or other mineral. It is highly gratifying to know that arte sian water has at last been found at such a reasonable depth, fond groat credit Is due to Mr. Moore for his en terprise in solving a problem of great . practical importance. Tho water was struck In sand roofc mixed with quicksand, and very pio bablo water free from mineral will bo found at greater depth.
