Tli. ll.d Weather MayTax Ills Philosophy, but Ioe Nat Prevent lilt Might Seeing In the City. Those la it fe link, misly, Jr'uiling, rainy days, iCTCrely tateil my philosophy, and a little more of It wnutd lure blown my stock of philosophy lo the four winds of hearrn, and ibrccd into view the Innate cunedness of my nature, perhsps earned me to fire a volley of "cuss words." The slush, mud and water were simply fearful; the streets were changid Into branches and creeks, and the plazas Into inlsnd seal. At nestly every crossing a re spectable lake was formed. Vnat nas the drain onCommerce street is a humbug, for, as soon as the plank rots with which It it covered, which It wilt do in two years, the humbug will be apparent to the obtusest mind. Earthen pipes should have been pi)t down and covered over. lint let me fold up and put away this disagreeable subject ol botching the streets. To complain is singing psalms to a dead horse. The stores and shors locateJ on Alamo plait have been pretty well Insulated since the rainy weather commenced by the impassa ble slate of the plata, and their owners have lost considerable trade in consequence thereof. bheets, Corrcvan & Castles have a large and fine assortment of goods in their line, and are selling them at reasonable prices a circumstance which ought to attract a large trade in good weither and wet weather also, II ihey will put a fory fiat on the inland sea in front ol Idem to enable cuttomers to cross it. Jnske's is always crowded mep, womtn and children have a fancy for his store, an I I will tell you why; his prices are onable and his clerks are polite and prompt In filling the orders of customers. They don't talk lo genteel women on the sup position that they are women ol the town. W'olfT & Marx, In the new and spacious store on the corner of Commerce and Alamo, not only have a splendid stand, but a large and magnificent stock of goods, which are very tastefully arranged. I visited it In com pany with two New Orleans ladies, and was well pleased. The ladies of San Antonio have found out that he has elegant goods, at reasonable figures. Turning up Commerce, in a westerly direc tion, Town Talk called a halt at the store of V. Lorra, who keeps a fine lot of goods for gentlemen's wear, and competent men for making them up, nnd is besides reasonable in his prices. Town Talk engaged him lo make his wedding suit. lleinpanold huotir, guns, etc., never fail to take the fancy of Town Talk; so he was just bound to have a peep at the stores oil' rank Olmsmlth & Co., of Charles Hum- mell & Son, and what he saw fairly made his mouth water. Sportsmen can find at these stores, guns and all else they may need for an outfit. E. Abrahams has some capital wines, and his grape brandy Is enough to almost make a fellow form-ear water, tt leaves a good taste In your mouth. Hearing a piano, Town Talk stepped into Goggan & llrothers, No. 20 Commerce street, and found them well supplied with organs, pianos, musical Instruments, stiings and sheet music, and very polite and courteous. They icerit liberal patronage. J. II. Marquart has knocked down the prices of boots and shoe, so that nobody need wear old boots and shoes any longer, unless they happen to be In the distressful predica ment of Town Talk In a state of chronic Im pecunioslty. Captain Ilosack was crying off some prop erty in front of his auction room, and Town Talk paused to eojoy his glib talk and his pleasant face, and while thus employed, a friend showed him a copy of the Jefferson Jimplecute with the following notice of the Captain: Remembrance of old and absent friends Is an admirable trait; few remember those who are present, in the way of showing real friendship to them, and this little incident Is creditable to Captain Ilosack. It proves he has a kindly heart, and Town Talk takes off his hat to him. Kead the following para graph and patronise Ilosack: "We were made glad yesterday by leceiving by express from San Antonio, with the com pliments of Captain J. A. II. Ilosack, a large box filled with the choicest selection of vecetables from the San Antonio market. Tomatoes, cabbage, green corn, turnips, lettuce, splnage, snap beans, onions, new potatoes, celery, carrots, and, In fact, a com plete list, all as fresh and nice as could be. Texas Is the greatest country in the world, and no portion of It has more favors showered on It than the old Alamo City. We astute our valued old friend that his kindness will long be remembered, and his present highly enjoyed.'" Town Talk has not completed his tour of sauntering, nor ts he foot lore or leg weary, he has made the advertisements In the Light his guide so far and will do so in his next ramble. Town Talk.

Vickshurcj, Miss., December 14 I'lcaaan Hall, colored, was hanged at Rolling Folk at 3 o'clock to-day for the murder of an old nrg-o man in November. He made Ihe usual speech. He was ready to die; he was going straight to Jesus, etc. Several hundred wete present, principally negroes. When the drop fell ihe culprit was not lifted free ofTlhe plat form, and death resulted from strangulation after hanging iS minutes. Silas Cane, col ored, will be hanged in the same place on next Friday for committing an outrage on a little colored girl. It would be a blessing if some of the callow ft.slglings in oratory, who are ambitious to air themselves on matters that do not con cern them in the least, would try some other place than a public meeting of business men in which to be taught elocution or parliamen tary rules. Last night's meeting was bored and distressed by some of these. As "mute, ingloiious Miltons" minding their own affairs, their cackle would be best received. The orator who draws the biggest crowd Is always selected to advocate public meas ures of importance, because he talks to Ihe largest audience. The same can be said of shrewd business men. They advertise In the journal having the largest circulation In order to reach the greatest number. This Is one of the many reasons why the Llonr is made an advertising medium by practical business men. Should It turn out to be true that certain parlies are going before the grand jury to tell what they know of gambling in private club rooms, there will be "such a gettln' down stairs" among the young bloods as to make them look like a convention of fence cutters under arrest. r"ors Furniture Wagon Always on band to move furnlturo.
