Entered at postomce at San Antenlo, Texas, as second-class matter. SATCItOAT, DIXr.MIIKU at) 1883. FokT Worth has been trying to abolish that greatest of nuisances the town cow, by ordinances, in order to encourage Ihe plant lag of trees and shrubbery. Tils; Fort Worth Gazette says: "The San Antonio Light published a very attractive and illustrated holiday edition. The Light is always found in the front rank." TlltRE seems to be a general dciire upon Ihe part of the people of the cliy to elect wide awake and progresilve men as Alder men. Mossbackism is all right in its wsy, but the time has come when It is necessary to have representative and energetic men at the head ol alTairs, and it should be the duty of every voter to carefully examine the merits ol the candidate before he votes. Some fellow in writing in justification of the fence cutlers, put up the plea that he should have free grass and a wide range, because he and his lather had fought and driven oft" the Indians, and was wound up by the question of what right had he to drive the Indians away from their inherited hunting groundit The theory will not work. The fence cutter Is a violstor of the law, and as such should bs amenable to tho law, because it is supreme. The holiday edition of the Li cut in many respects was a valuable issue, and gave the reader a very fair idea of the progress made in the last year by the city. It cost time, work and moqey to get it up, but It Is a fact that every day some one will come to the office and aik for one to five copies, and when asked to pay for them decline to take them. The Light is of the opinion that if anyone thinks enough of that special issue to call for it, be will have to pay for it. The Light repeals its advice to citizens to support nsnebut progressive men for Alder men, and not to split up on different candi dates, lie sure before hand thst they are really and truly progressive, and heartily in favor of municipal improvement. The pro gressive element is in the majority In the city, and it is fortunate for the future of San An tonio that snch is the case. We earnestly an peal to the young men to take a bold stand for progress and Improvement, as they will grow with the growth of the city. In discussing the question of murder, and its general freedom from punishment in Texas, the Waco Examiner says: "A few years since it was thought the State had passed through the worst of her troubles in this respect. It was even predicted that soon the crime of murder would become as rare as th others we have named. But alas I the result has not borne out this comfortable theory. On the contrary, It grows worse. When we come to seek for the explanation, behold we have it in letters of light so that all may read and fully understand. The horse thief and the cattle thief are hung without mercy and without law. The robber, the burglar, the foot-pad and the petty thief gets a prompt punishment. The man, however, who reddens his band in the blood of his fellow for any purpose gets off by some hook or crook If levity is per missible in the treatment of as grave a subject caught, or if caught he is rarely convicted, and If convicted he is never hung unless he Is ignorant, poor and friendless then at rare In tervals he is hung for the crime. These are uncomplimentary facts we are writing, bu they are facts nevertheless, and they are facts attached to circumstances which are positively dangerous te the peace, good order, name and safety of society in this fair Texas land of ours, la thus permitting outrages so glaring Texas is settling herself on the downward track which will land her at the devil if her good men, her courts and grand juries do not very soon speedily reconstruct their policy and stand for the punishment of the murderer as well as the horse and cattle thief." When Nol to Marry. from the Iloston Globe. There are 31 days In a year on which it ii unlucky to marry, upon the authority of a manuscript dated in the 15th century. These days are January I, 3, 4, 5, 7, 10 15; February 6, 7, I S; March I, 6, 8; April 0, 11; May 5, 6, 7J June 7, IS; July 5, 9i Auut 15, 19; Sep tember 6, 7; October 6; November 15, 16; and December 15, 16, 17, Consequently Janu ary is the worst month and October the belt month in the year for marriage. The records show, however, that In Bolton, and in fact Ihrouchout New Encland, November is the banner month for matrimony, October hold ing second place In nuplial favor. For this Thankt-jivioe; day is mainly responsible. It has been consecrated to marriage festivals for maoy generations. Fait day is another fav orite day for connubial venlures, and with a large proportion of our population filter Sunday is regarded as an auspicious occasion for the welding of the matrimonial fellers. Thousands of couples have wedded New Year's week, unwitting the rlik they ran as above set forlh, and It is hsrdly to lie eipectrd that the publication of this lilt will increase Ihe number of happy families or lessen the regular long roll of divorce suits upon the dockets of the coutls. Only, a tho precious buulilo wear. Only n llttlo chair. Ion? vacant now. Hut memory often fills tho acant seat; A fair, sweet child, with calm and sinless brow, 1 see In fancy fitting at my feet. Only tho portrait of a childish face. The sllcut shadow of a vanished form. Pressed of ten to my own In Bind embrace. With loving prattle anil fond kisses warm. Only somo broken toys; but oh I to mo Tbey aro tho relics of a happy past ; Kent as n treasure under lock and key. Mementoes of a time too bright to last. Only some little garments worn and old, Oazod at In secret sorrow now and then; Guarded as nlicrs hoard their darling gold. And tbotrcaauro from tho eyes of men. Only two tiny shoes, worn out almost, You would not deem them worth a passing thought; Hut obi they conjtiro up a rushlnghost Of sweet sad memories that come unsought. Only a little bed; how oft I bent To kiss the lovely tenant sleeping there; My heart was happy In Its great content. Nor reck'd tho sorrow It has had to bear. Partings and death no moro shall rack tho bretftt In that blest home, the Land of Evermore 1 A Tale of the Sea. From tho Chicago Tribune, The Captain walked slowly aft and ad dressed the man at the wheel J'Old Tom," a grizzled sea dog, who had sailed the Wabash under Secretary Thompson, and seen service off the rock-bound coast of Lemont when a hostile constabulary endeavored to attach a canal-boat. "How does she head!" asked the captain, looking into the binnacle. "West by south," replied old Tom, giving the wheel a turn and glancing aloft to see that the top sails were drawing. "I think we shall have a capfull of wind irorn the north to-night," he added. "Yon cloud has a wicked look." "Very well," said the Captain. "I will tell the cook to lash the beefsteak to the galley and make fast the toothpicks, in case anything should hsppen. Nfght has come. The Avenger is cleaving the water in gallant style, the white foam curling from her bows as she comes In stays and stands away on the starboard tack. The quarter-deck Is deserted save by Lieutenant Alluut, whose watch it is. The Captain has gone below, and the steady, strident snore tnat is waned upward tens mat he Is asleep. Suddenly one of Ihe lookouts comes aft and touches his hst to the Lieuten ant. There s a sail on the port bow, sir," he . says. Lieutenant Alltaut takes his class and looks in the direction indicated. It is the pirate," he sayi, speaking calmly as do all naval officers in books. " Send a man below to put a clothes pin on the Cap tain's nose. And while yon are there, bring up my cutlais and a piece of pie. The man disappeared. In the meantime preparations had been made for the approaching conflict. The men were stationed behind the bulwarks, and their faces wore a determined look. Nearer and nearer drew the Avenger to her prey until at last she lay alongside the dreaded oyster pirate of Chesapeake bay. Not a sign of life was visible on the craft. From the mizzenmast a week's washing flapped dismally in the night wind. Lieutenant Alltaut reached over the Avenger's side and grasped a shirt, thereby being enabled to hold his vessel steady. The men witnessed this manccuvre in silent admiration. Brilliant seamanship always commands respect. "Ship ahoy 1" called the Lieutenant. A noise was heard aboard the craft, and an Instant later Black Mike, the pirate, appeared on deck. lie comprehended the situation in an instant, and drawing a huge knife sprang forward to cut the tail from the shirt to which Lieutenant Alltaut was holding, thereby al lowing the Avenger to drift into the darkness. The officer wss on the alert, and felled the pirate to the deck with a piece oi the govern ment pie which he had not had time to eat. The man rose quickly but thoroughly hum bled. "Well," he said sullenly, "you have caught me at last." "Do you surrender!" asked the Lieuten ant. "No," answered the pirate, with a horrible oath; "I will sell my lile dearly." "Reflect on what you are doing," and Lieutenant Alltaut's voice trembled as he spoke. "You are at our mercy. At a signal from me too copies of Secretary Chandler's report win be burled on your neck." "My Godl" said the pirate. "Are you, then, devoid of all humanity t" "Yes," replied the Lieutenant. "No quar ter will be given If the battle Is once begun," The pirate looked at the port-holes of the Avenger and saw the muzzles of the documents frowning at him. "Is this report the usual "Yes." "And ( you have really got too copies "Yes." "Then I surrender. A brave defense Is one thing, but suicide is another." A young widow, in erecting a monument to the "dear departed," cleverly availed herself of the opportunity to Inscribe upon the tomb: "Sacred to the memory ol Mathusia Bezuchet, who departed this life aged 68 years, regret ting the necessity of parting from the most charming and best of women" herself, A prudent young man Is asked by his Irlendi "Why have you taken lodgings on the ground floor you who are always preach ing that there Is no air fit to be breathed to be had short of five stories up!" "I will tell you," he replied. "You see I have taken a solemn oath thst unless Miss C. agrees to marry me, I will throw myself out of the win dow. See!" The Bait of the Average Fisherman.
