A Farmer and Merchant Despoiled
of their Ohattele.
Mr. N. B. Douglass, a prominent
farmer living near Mart and Mr.
Ward Huing, a merchant of Mart,
camo into tho city yesterday, the
former to sell three bales of cotton,
tho latter to attend to some business.
'Mr. Douglass sold his cotton about
four o'clock in tho afternoon receiving
a cheek for samo for $148.25 from
Thompson Bros, and drawn ou the
Waco Stato Bank. He put this lu his
pooket book which contained, be'
sides, $05 In money and noino papers
Tho two remained In town last night
and something after twelvo o'olook at
night wont to their stopping place,
the Mitohell House, near the corner of
Third and Franklin street and went
to bed In room No. 21 . The room con
talnod two beds and one of the beds
had an oeeupant,ayoung man of about
twenty flvo, who had como to the
houso a stranger, about ten o'olook;
paid for his lodging in advance and
retired about twelve. Mr. Hulng
woke up about four o'clock in the
morning when, ho says, the young
man had gone. He lay nwako till
six, when ho and Mr. Douglas got up
to find themselves robbed. Their
pants whloh had beon placed under
their pillows when they went to bed,
had been removed and their clothes,
pockot-books and papers wore scat
tered about the room. Mr. Douglass
says ho lost the oheek mentioned and
sixty-flvo dollars In money. Mr. Hu
lng lost a silver watch and gold
chain. Ho had twenty dollars in his
pooket-book, which the thief, who
had gono through it, had evidently
missed. The payment of the check
was stopped as soon as tho banks
opened this morning, and the officers
were notified. Suspicion very natur
aly foil on tbo young man who had
occupied the same room, and tele
grams giving a description of him
were sont to towns accessible by
trains loavlng town since tho rob
bery was committed, while diligent
search is being made ,in the city.

A movement was started sometlmo
ago to obtain subscription to a fund to
be used during the winter for tho
relief of persons
of persons in distress. Au in -
ervlew to-day with Mr. John Appel,
who by goueral and universal con
sent Is, as ho has been for mauy years,
the dlspensor, of public charities, in
order to ascertain for tho informa
tion of the publlo tho amounts so far
ubscrlbod to said fund, Tho hopo of
tho benevolently inclined pooploen
gazod with Mr. Appel in taking up
tho subscription, was to secure from
twenty persons a subscription of flvo
dollars each per month making one
hundred dollars per month, whloh
with the sum from smaller subscrip
tions would make a snug little sum
to be employed in warming and shel
tering women and buying shoes for
half-frozen childron and giving food
to the hungry. Mr. Appel Informs
us that there are sixteen subscriptions
of five dollars eaoh and by a simple
process of arithmotio it will be
figured out that there are still lack
ing four names of the twenty to bo
got up aud it was inferred from the
way in which Mr. Appel talked
rather than what he said, that it is
pretty doubtful it more can be ob
tained. We are not at liberty to pub
lish the names of the sixteen who
have subscribed live dollars per
mouth. No applications havo yet
been made by poor people for assist
ance, during the warm weather, but,
in a few days now at most, when the
wind gets in the north and the ther
mometer tumbles down to 12 degrees
aboye zero, thore uro a number of
widows bravely working to support
families of children orphaned by the
act ot God, who will be forced to ask
nssltanco. The work of districting
tho city Is being carried on by four
noble ladles, Mrs, John C, West, Mrs.
Eaton, Mrs. Dr. Willis and Mrs. J. M.
Carrol, which when finished, commit
tees composed of lsdlos, will be ap
pointed in cash district, who will en"
quire into cases of distress and roport
them. We are roquested to state
that if there are any grocers, dry
goods houses or others who desire to
make the Holy Christmas season an
occasion for giving gifts to the poor
and needy, they will confer a favor on
the committee, by leaving such gifts
at the store of Mr. Chas. Smith, or
dropping a note to Mr. Appel.

One of tho finest Musio Boxes the
writer ever saw was seen this after
noon at J. P. Williamson's, otherwise
the White Elephant. To the lover of
fine mechanism It Is a treat. Tills
minlturo piano produces the sweetest
melody imaginable, and with the
cylinder movement is accompalments
of bass drum, snare drum, bells and
other things, whloh makes it a per
fect band. It could be used effec
tively for private dances. There are
meohaulcal contrivances for stopping
or repeating tunes for dissevering
ono or all of the accompanying mlna-
ture instruments, and other contri
vances for giving volume etc, that
are modols of ingenuity. The tunes
played, ten in number, are. some of
the newest aud most popular, Inclu
ding five dauelng pieces, complete
melodies and choice selections from
operas. The most charming piece of
Ingenuity Is an automatlo apparatus
which as tho tunes aro ohanged,moves
a hand over a brass dial, and indi
cates the tune which Is then being
played by number corresponding
to the numbers attached to the Hat of
tunes. This beautiful music pro
ducing machinery Is appropriately
set in a case of the finest rose-wood
and equlsite workmanship, making it
a souviner for the parlor.
