introduced, establishing the identity
of Col. Moore Beam and his three
sons, John, Thomas C and Oscar,
from 1836 to 1839 when they left
Palmyra and went to Fayettville, Ark.
Affidavits from Ark., proved the ex
istence of the Bean family there. The
record of the oath of allegiance of Col.
Moore Bean to the Republic of Texas
was introduced. This evidence was
all on the part of H. P. Howard, of
San Antonio, to whom letters of ad
ministration have been issued, and
Mrs. Sarah A. Dare, of Washington
D. C. The attorneys of J. W. Saunders
will not begin the introduction of their
testimony before to-morrow, evening.

Fort Worth, September 19 The
republican delegation to the state con
ventlon who arrived to-night are very
few, probably fifty in all. Dr. Arch
Cochran, of Dallas, and A. J. Rosen
thal are the prornineut men here to
night. Cuney, of Galveston, the col
ored leader, and DeGress, of Austin,
will be here to-morrow. 1 he conven
tion will not meet until noon and will
not get to work until late in the day.
The great question will be on the state
ticket, there being two factions one
favoring and one opposing nomina
tions. Wright Cuney leads the anti
ticket delegates, while DeGress is the
acknowledged head of the pro-ticket
men. The convention will be a very
quiet affair from present indications.
A Colony up in tho Clouds.
Life at the Lick observatory, over
4000 feet above the ocean level, on a
lofty summit, with other mountain
crests only for neighbors, is an inter
esting study. Here is probably the
highest colony in California. 1 he as
tronomers and necessary employes of
the observatory form a. little world of
their own, and few of them care often to
go outside of it. -The stage that comes

cures all needed freight once a month,
some times oftener. A butcher with
supplies comes up the twenty-eight
miles of tortuous mountain road once
a week. Cows and chickens
are adjuncts to the commissary de
partment. Quail, rabbits and deer
are plentiful in surrounding canyons,
and some of the sportsmen-astronomers
occasionally bung them down.
The summer air is soft, and so rare

He was very practical; and in order
to have everything fair and squre be

"You know, darling, I promised my
mother that my wife should be a good
housekeeper and a domestic woman.
Can you cook?"
"I can," she said, swallowing a great
big lump in her throat.
"Can you make good bread? That
is the fundamental principle of all
Yes; I went into a bakery and
learned how to make all kinds of bread.
She added under her breath "maybe."
"And can you do your own dress
making? I am comparatively a poor
man, love, and dressmakers' bills
would soon bankrupt me."
"yes," she said trankly, "1 can
make everything I wear, especially
"You are a jewel," he cried with
enthusiasm:" come to my arms "
"Wait a minute there's no hurry,"
she said coldly. "It's my turn to
ask a few questions. Can you saw
