Floresville Texas April iG. Dr. Dryden
died on Friday the 13th instant while on his
way from San Antonio to his home in Flores-
ville. lie hart-been sick for more than three
months and convalescent but a short time.
He was buried in the cemetery here on the
following day being followed to his last rest-
ing place by many warm friends who held the
highest respect and confidence for him Pro-
fessor Lopas officiating at the grave.
Machinery is here for the new girt and grist
mill to be built by Messrs. Edds & Rhode.
Under the management of this enlerprisirg
firm we predict success.
The Floresvillians have again been afflicted
by the itinerent showman with his magic
lantern and pictures lie' however had a
good audience and made as interesting an
exhibit as the average showman.
After all the noise and bustle about a new
court house we are doomed to still have jus-
tice dispersed to rebellious mankind in the
old shell till some time in the fulure. Echo
answers the luture.
Copious showers have fallen recently in
quick succession. Crop prospects never
better and in consequence ihe industrious
farme can be seen busily engaged in his
fields from morn till night. This county is
fast changing from grazing to agriculture and
parties who own laiqe tracts of land and wish
to dispose of the same readily can do so by
dividing into small farms and offering the
same on reasonable terms.
A light frost last night bu no damage
That g-intleman used good judgment when
looking for reading matter in selecting the
Light from a lot of other leading papers of
Tex as as one did in Floresville a few even-
ings ago. Amos.
Klnc Charles' jTool.
This good fellow's Influence was so great
that Charles (King of France) once remarked
to him he thought they had belter change
places. As Jean did not look well pleased at
the proposal Charles asked him if he were
not content at the idea of being a King.
"Oh content enough" was the reply
" but I should be exceedingly ashamed at
having such a fool I "
It was this fool who once tried his master's
nerve by rushing into his room one morning
with the exclamation :
"Oh sire such news! Four thousand
men have risen in the city ! "
" What I " cried the startled King "with
what intention have they risen f "
"Well" said Jean placing his finger upon
his nose "probably with the intention of ly-
ing down again at bedtime."

Tim Origin or Chamniirii
A monk of more taste than honesty had
aDiiracieu irom a cask in the mmasterial cel-
lars of his convent some still rkmni.
which he hntlN d fnr 1!. ;.. . '
was alarmed one night by a series of explo-
sions. Corks had been blown into the air
and the stolen wine which he had vainly en-
deavored to keep in confinement was running
in froth and foam over the side ol the bottles
The terrified monk concluded that the devil
mu have got into the wine; but the prior of
tiemo-astery knew better. He tasted the
wine foi nd at once tl a it was gooi' 'stireud-
ly determined to bottle smc forh!me'f and
ended by going through a series of experi-
ments which had fir result the discovery
of the true art of making champagne.
