It is my greatest ambition to undersell
any competition. My knowledge of the
dry goods business is backed by an experi-
ence of seventeen years. I think in this
length of time I ought to have leamev
something about this business. I try with
a tireless and sleepless ambition to TJndeb-
sell and whether I under-buy or not I an
determined to Undersell. I possess ;a
cilities for purchasing my goods that enable
me to sell cheaper than any other house in
Brenham and I intend to live down hart
words and scandal and like the eveninp
star stand far abovo all competition.
Talk is cheap but come to see me anr
you will certainly find I mean what I say
Yours anxious to please

Texas has 200 varieties of wood.
W. L. Dotson of Marshal died
Mrs. Eobt. Thompson of Cald-
well died Saturday.
Palestine has shipped 10145
bales of cotton this season.
A handsome new express office
is to be erected at Palestine.
Several cases of diptheria has
made its appearance at Killeen.
A JackBon county farmer claims
to have gathered and ginned from
nine acres of land this year 12 bale3
of cotton each bale weighing from
five to six hundred pounds.
The estimated sugar crop for
Texas this year is 14000000 pounds.
The State could easily produce 1-
000000000 pounds and still have an
abundant rich bottom acreage for
cotton or nee.
The packing house at Ft Worth
has been standing idle for want of
material. This is a sad commentary
upon the lack of thrift among Texas
farmers who continue to eat meat
raised elsewhere paying for it a
price covering profit to numerous
dealers besides freight.
Jacobo Morales a prominent
citizen of Brownsville having been
missing from his ranch sometime
search was made and his body was
found pierced by bullets. It is be-
lieved that he was killed because he
knew something regarding the mur-
der of Francisco Cisneros who was
killed in the same neighborhood a
short time since.
Between 2 and 3 o'clock Mon-
day morning William Lloyd colored
shot Shew Mosely through the body
the ball entering under the right
nipple and passing through his body.
The wound is thought to be fatal.
The difficulty grew out of a settle-
ment which Lloyd claimed Mosely
owed him. The shooter was arrest-
ed Monday morning and jailed.
The premium of S100 offered by
Barney Gibbs for the best essay
proposing a plan for the investment
of permanent school funds was
awarded to Messrs. Erskine Wil-
liams of Fort Worth and T. J.
Middleton Editor of the Waxahachie
Mirror being divided between them.
The plan of Mr. Williams was to in-
vest it in loans on farm land at 10
per cent interest and that of Mr.
Middleton was to lend it to school
districts for the construction and
equipment of school houses.
A party of armed and mounted
bandits went to a house on the Pal-
mito ranch about thirty miles from
Brownsville a few nights ago and
captured the daughter of Francisco
Jaramio the train robber who was
killed last Oanuary whjle fleeing from
the sheriffs posse and endeavored
to make her tell where her father had
buried his share of the proceeds of
the robbery but failing to get any
information from her they got her
husband and while taking him to the
woods to hang him he escaped un-
hurt. Engineer Walker and Fireman
MaDonell who were injured m the
wreck of the northbound Sants Fe
passenger near Ardmore X T. Sun
day evening were brought to Gum&-
ville on a special Monday morning.
Both men are in a critical condition.
An examination discloses that none
of McDonell's bones are broken but
his injuries are internal his tounge
and throat being scalded and his
lungs affected. Walker is suffering
intense pain two of his ribs being
fractured the left leg being broken
in two places and his spine injured.

An electrical house-to house par-
cels exchange has been proposed by
a London electrician Mr. A. R. Ben-
net. A little electric railway with
two tracks one above the other
would be laid under the btreets in a
tunnel about two feet wide and three
feet high and by side tunnels would
branch into the houses of subscrib-
ers. To send a parcel a signal
would first be given the central sta-
tion for a truck. This would be
quickly received when the parcel
would be placed upon it and the
truck returned to the central station
to be dispatched from there to the
subseriber designated. The truck
would be unloaded automatically a
bell signalling the parcel.
The production of positive photo-
graphs direct from the camera has
been announced in Germany this
markable result being secured by
adding small quantities of a substi-
tuted sulpho urea to the developer.
Successful trials were made with
aliyl and phenyl sulpho-urea added
to eikonogen; but sulpho-urea itself
while acting similarly gave unsatis-
In a fire extinguishing system
the building is provided with a
chemical reservoir from which pipes
lead to a jar of acid near the ceiling
of each room. The jar also con-
tains a cartridge connected with an
open circuit battery. The thermom-
eter in each room is set at any de-
sired point say 80 and in case
of fire tho1 jnercury rises to that
point and closes the electric circuit.
This explodes the cartridge a valve
drops the chemicals are precipita-
ted into the room and the number
of the room is signalled. This ar-
rangement is supplemented by a se-
ries of -dry pipes and in case the
chemicals fail to put out the fire
the room can be flooded with water
by turning a cock on the outside of
SCIENTIFIC HOBSE TRAINING.
Not the least curious of recent ap
plications of science is the use of
spectacles for the production of
high-stepping horses. The spec
tacles designed and first made by a
London firn. of opticians consist of
eye-enclosing frames of stiff leather
and deep concave glasses of large
size. They cause the ground in
front of the horse to appear raised
and he accordingly steps high. Per-
sistence in the use of the spectacles
on young animals is said to give won-
derful results. It is suggested that
spectacles are also often desirable
for correcting the vision of horses
and that certain vices such as shy-
ing which isgenerally due to short
sight might be cured by means of
Many savage tribes constantly use
without harm the flesh of animals
killed with Jjoisoued weapons; and
in recent investigations with animals
killed by various poisons such as
strychine tartarized antimony and
eserine the flesh was found to be
of impaired flavor and to produce
no ill effects.
A boring at Brohl on the Rhine
has been worked for carbonic acid
for 50 years but its supply is now
