As a sequel to last Sunday's mass meeting at Dallas another meeting is called for Thursday to organize a law and order society to set" to the enforce ment of the laws. The wires this morning report a con flagration in Oregon, in which the town of Roslyn was swept away, two hundred and fifty houses burned and fifteen hundred people rendered home less. Pinkerton's detectives are said to be in every general offie of the K. of L. and other vorkine,men's organiza tions in disguise of a member. The spy system is a Russian system, pure and simple. A colored preacher has committed the whole Bible to memory. It is a big thing for it is the dizziest kind of matter to keep in the memory. One may know the ten commandments like a parrot and forget one so quick that he has broke it into smash before he can think. Blondin, the famous iope-valker, is willing to repeat his old-time feat of walking across the gorge below Ni agara Falls on a rope for the sum of $10,000. It is said that Imre Kiralfy, the theatrical Manager, will pay the price, and arrange for the exhibition in about three weeks. lialveston is fully aroused to the danger which threaten her in the ag itaion of a deep water port. She is shaken out of the Rip Van Winkle sleep of a half century. Yesterday at a large mass-meeting of business men a very large delegation of her most representative men was appointed to the Denver deep water convention and they will move heaven and earth to prevent movements putting the in terests of Galveston at hazard. The telegraph reports Mr. Moore and Mrs. Norton, the celebrated elop ers, living cosily at Idaho Springs, a short distance west of Denver, billing and cooing as man and wife, while the real husband sits solitary and alone by his desolate hearth in St. Louis, wife and money gone, and the real wife is weeping on the bosom of her mother in her childhood's home in New Jersey. And yet there wasn't power enough in the law to punish the man who broke up two homes, because he was not a common adul terer. The British cousul at Ningo calls the attention of British manufacturers to spinning machines used in his dis trict that were imported from Japan and which, he thinks, will eventually be adopted in cotton producing coun tries. The advantages claimed for them, as compared with the method of spinning used in America, are that the staple is less injured and the seeds are better cleaned. This is attained by drawing the cotton between straight steel edges or knives, insted of using saws. A recent writer in Japan suggests that we should, instead of sending them missionaries, ask them to send us a few. He says "the Japanese are temperate. To a visitor, tea and not alcoholic liquors are offered. There are no standing bars in Japan, and no public drinking of liquors that intoxi cate. The Japanese are polite. Their honesty is attested by the fact that the shop is often left by the proprietor "with nobody m while he goes to distant part of the city. There are no bolts and bars on public or private houses. The Japanese are humane. Horses are rarely beaten, and oxen drawing loads have awnincs fastened over them. Cattle for slaughter are carefully led. Gunning for sport is unknown. At school, the children of nobles are poorly dressed, to avoid injuring the feelings of poorer chil dren. They are a'so remarkably hos pitable and courteous." "An extraordinary outburst of pop ular savagery," says a Vienna dis patch, "has just ocuurred at Bosard, a village near Kaschau. A girl who is a native of the village, was married to a peasant from another village, but after the wedding a number of young men of Borsad tried to prent her from departing to her new home. The bride managed to escape, out on seeing this the young men set fire to the cottage of her parents, and the flames quickly spread to other cot tages. A murderous fight then began between these young ruffians and the bride's friends, with the result that eight peasants were killed and about twenty of both sexes injured. The arrival of a detachment of mounted gendarmes put an end to the affray, and the leaders were marched off to prison," Allen Bedingfield, of Macon, Ga., has a mule that is perhaps the oldest mule in the service to-day. Just be fore the war Mr. Bedingfield's father purchased a pair of fine sleeck mules, and during the war one of them died. When the war ended and th Federal soldiers were rummaging over the country taking everything availa ble, one of Col. Howland's couiiers went into Mr. Bedingfield's lot to get old "Puss." The mule seemed to know a Yankee from a Confederate soldier, and hated Yankees intensely. When the opportunity presented Puss let fly her heels and struck the cou rier's saber, knocking it fully ten feet away. The courier ran for the fence, but while in the act of getting over Puss caught his coat-tails and bit off half of them. She is now between forty and forty-five years of age, and is good for service. Ninnll I'otiitocN. Van Alstyne. Tex., July 23. Joe Lyons, a printer, who has been at work in the News office here, changed an order which was given for $2 and re ceived $3.50 on the same. He was arrested to-day at Savoy on a tele phone from Prof. S. P. Evans of this place. The Dcnlli IloI Frnml. Paris, Tex., July 23. The remains of Ernest Adams, the younc; man mur dered by John Martin, in the Choc taw nation, last week, an account of which given here on last Sunday, were found in Red river, one mile be low were the body was thrown in. He had been horribly butchered. He was shot in the back with a Winches ter, the ball passing through his body, and his head and one arm were cut off. Deputy Marshall Everidge came for the Martin boys to-day and carried them to Fort Smith, where Joe Martin will be tried for murder of Adams ane his brother held as accessory. BALiiAS, July 23. About. 2 o'clock yesterday morning the residents of Pacific avenue, noar Sycamore streot wer aroused by a man yolllng lustily, "musdor! murder! Police! police'!" Several parties ran out of their houses half-dressed and armed with six shooters. They found on tho street a man, seemingly under tlio influence of drink, who informed them that ho had been preyed upon by a highway man, but who did not seem to have a a very clear idea as to details. .IMPORTANT TO jHORSE OWNERS rnuDtin caustic balsam; rarredeMlnilTey tyJ.HGoHMTOr, ex-Veterli 1 ) ary Burgeon to French Government Btud. , f .Supersedes all Cautery or Firing.
