A WEEK'S TRIP.
THE WOOLEN MILLS AT WACO-THINGS
IN THE CENTRAL CITY.
Incidents of a Brief Sojourn K Naw Colton Fac-
tsry and a New Optra House Tha Glori-
An tinexiicctcil cull last week sum- j
uionttl one of I lie I.iinir force to tlie i
central city wliltlicr l.e liurrled its
speedily ts the Iron liorie could bear
liliu or tlie glistening rail ifi'nt link
Hnn Antonio with her sister city. It
on .Sunday and after giving our at-
tention to the growing crops entrancing
scenery nnd raging streams we found
ourselves Mowing up In the suburbs of
the capital. A careful survey around
the depot failed to bring to our view
either the portly form of "the most pop- '
ulnr newspaper man In Austin"' or the I
genial phiz of our old friend Cravens
and with n slight twlnga of disappoint-
ment we reseated ourselves In the car
and wero soon ngnln speeding away
northward. At Taylor vo disembarked
to nvnlt the train of the following day
which should carry us to our destination.
The peculiar conduct of numerous citi-
zens In tho vicinity of the rear doors of
certain places told us that tho newly
ordained Sunday law was being relig
iously observed. () At the hotel wo
met our old friend Dr. S. H. Shackle-
ford of Austin. He had run up to afloid
relief to thoso sull'erlng from aching
molars. One of Ids patients proved to
be our charming friend Miss .tuna .Mc-
Fadln to' whom wo are Indebted for
much of tho pleasure that marked our
brief stay in Taylor and express a regret
that pressure of time prcented our
meeting her beautiful sister.
Monday afternoon found us nguln
speeding over the road toward Waco
which thriving placo was reached about
3 o'clock In the evening. Soon wo found
ourselves responding 16 tbe greetings of
nliostof Irlendsnnd old acquaintances.
Naturally our steps led to tho Bohemian
headquarters nnd here wo found JIo-
Colliun. Hubby Wheat Elgin nnd olh-
ihey and the citizens had not yet
recovered from the surprise nt
tho metamorphosis In the shape
and style of tho Kxamlner. Its
glgantlo proportions were most too
much at one dose though nil wish It to
succeed. Tho transfer from the old
botiso to the new quarters of the Sunny
South company has not yet been com
peted and that paper Is not In appear
ance what It soon will he. The ener-
getic llttlo Day still brightens the after-
noon scenes and promises soon to en-
large. Colonel C. J C. I'uckettc for-
merly with tho Fort Worth Gazette Is
now chief of stalTon the Day There is
also talk of a new evening paper to
mako Its nppcarnnco July 1.
the Democratic county convention
we soon learned had lust finished Its
session before our arrival and the streets
were illicit with knots of men tllsscuss-
Ing Its work. It was determined to hold
a nrluiarr election on tho Ll'ith of Julr to
choose nominees for county and
precinct olllccs nnd n lively time
Is anticipated. Candidates are
nearly ns numerouH as leaves
In Vallumbrosa while cotton choppers
are distressingly scarce. Wheat who
has not yet deserted bis l'ost was tlie
liveliest man in town Friday when the
Chicago bulletins were being received
nnd seemed to have been llred by tho
electrlo spark that brought tlie news
lllaine's nomination provoked but little
excitement and was accepted ns n matter
lourtli of Julv will see Wacom her
holiday garb nnd tho new driving park
win ue tue centre oi inteicst. A grnnu
tournament nnd celebration Is being pre-
pared. Among other attractions will be
u base ball contest for a purse of ?.VMI
and the San Antonio club is expected to
toko part. The park and grounds are
splendid nnd though not yet completed
the track Is ono of the best In the State.
Tho tournament on the glorious Fourth
will draw an Immense crowd to Waco.
Sanford Johnson owner and proprietor
oi mo pirc aiso manages trie opera
house which Is being splenuldly
lifted up. Joe Garland the former
manager is building n now opera bouse
across the street from the old which
will be a perfect gem nnd ready for
troupes by fall. Another new thing
about Waco and ono she Is Justly proud
of Is the woolen mills in which steam
has Just been started The main build-
ing Is 2oS feet long and UU wide with
store room olllce picking and engine
rooms etc. In addition It is a great
enterprise and bos opened the way for
a new cotton factory tho 8160000 capi-
tal stock of which Is already assured.
Waco Is setting San Antonio n tine ex-
ample at present.
We also attended the Inauguration of
tho commencement exerolses of Waco
Female College Friday night under
Professor and Sirs. Rounsavnll. Tho
programme was exoellent and well car-
ried out. Wnoo ls quiet on tho water
question now probably due to the floods
or to the low price of lager beer per-
haps to both llcsides other things
Waco will soon claim the most
handsome saloon In the State.
Among tbo pleasant Incidents of our
stay was an Introduction to the work-
ings of the "KarncBt itefonners" n new
society of which the veteran Major
Wiley Jones Is the bead and Harry
Smith Secretary. The reformers have n
big work to do and need help. The
meetings are held beneath the shadow
of the "Green Elephant" and the Treas-
urer must always be nresent.
Tho weather on the llrazos Is as hot
nsitis here but politics are decidedly
hotter. Just before embarking for tho
Alamo City ngaln we had the pleasure
or meeting and having a short chat with
Gcntral Sill Itoss. He Is ono of the ster-
ling leaders or tho State nnd will yet

A Brief Description of I he Diseases of the Eye Ear and Throat With
a few References of Remarkable Cures By Dr.
N 8. Burnham.
Ban Antonio lonjr felt the. need of a skillful specialist In treating diseases of the. Bye Ear and
Throat. Tho InhahlUntiof all this Immenso Stat nhen rcqulrlm? th serrlocs of such skill
wcrecompellod to make ton Journeys to distant cities at rrcat expense such as Kansas City
PU Louis and Chleaa-n and still further East In order to obtain relief for diseases afBlctlna
theao organs and parts
Manynf thvcltltensof this Ptalf:wt.o went to Kansas City .forth benefit of. an oculists
skill made tbe acquaintance of tho Oculist Aurlat and jLaryDrlst
DDr. 3ST. S. B-u.rrxtL3.rn.
who had iharirof tho Kansas City Mo Rye for and Throat Infirmary They one and all
united In urirtnif li!m to corne to thu point In Texas. Finally fall Inn health cauiad by tho
coMcllmsto compelled a chanjre and so Ban Antonio trained a specialist who was known by
some of her own cttUens and many In the Bute to possess the rciulslto skill In all of It
dcllcateandtarudoperatlonBandtrcatmrnUand sine locating here the greatest success bas
crownM his e fforts and he lias won the enduring gratitude of hundreds whom be baa treated
from all parts of the PUte. A few of them are given lrclow as reference.
A few remarks In regard tothladlseasomaynotbooutof place here as It Is so comnoo.
Nmrly all bavo the tmublo at tome time In tho acutcCform and call It a cold. Bonus times they
aroawaro they hardly get overonooold until they hac another. The oold or more properly
sH-aklng the catarrh then tccome sub-acute lly neglect this runs Into a chronic form.
Honiethnes it Is located In the nose; sometimes tbo throat or both. Booner or latcr.lt affect
tho cars causlnr frciurnt tinging or roaring In the cars or other noises. Sometimes violent
Intl-imattnn causing excruciating pain and tho acutencss of hearing Is lessoned la a
greater or less degtco. Very often loo. It extends up through a little duct from the nose to
ono or tho other and even both eyes causing several different form of diseases of the eye.
Nearly all are familiar with catarrh In the form of bronchitis.
Catarrh In all Its forms and nearly all Its stages can bo cured llutpcoplo neglect It and so
do physicians. They neither prepare themscUea with tho Instrument or knowledge sufficient
or necoMMiry to treat this troublesome dlseaM as a rule and thus people themselves do not
apprehend tho danger they are In when they consult a physician and bo tells them OtlU
nothing but a cold" and yet that so-called cold In a vast number ot cases Is tbo first start of
doarneaa blindness loss of smell lorn of voice of Laryngitis nronchltla and Consumption.
Any or several of these may follow and be caused by a neglected cold. Detow are a few names
which I have itcrtnlmlon to use who have been t res tod by mo with benefit for Catarrh In some
of It forms since I have lieen located here t
J P. Uoblnson Catarrh In throat 8an Antonio; T. II. Johnson Catarrh tn throat. Manager
Ban Antonio Lkiiit; . Kuhn Catarrh of tho bead Denver Co tors dot Miss Mary Eraser
Catarrh of tho throat and ears. Nova Bcotla; Frank Newton Catarrh of tho throat and eyes
Ban Antonio; Miss H.I?undhury Catarrh of tho throat and bead. Ban Antonio.
Bcoresmore tulirht lw added to thlr Hat that I bavo cured sluco located In this city but t will
only mention ono more as a rcmarkablolnstanoo of bow much good can bo done that claw of
Incurable.Mrcalled.Uimumpthe. O. W. Tye of Leon Springs had Catarrh for sorao years
In tho head and throat finally tho lungs became affected and ho had several haemorrhages and
had a very lad cough becamo much emaclawMt and a confirmed Invalid and was pronounced
by his physician In tho last and Incurablo elAgo of consumption. Ho came to me for treatment
last winter tietrl a year ago. Ho commenced to gain Uesh and woat to work In tbo spring
and I saw no mom of him until a few days ago when ho cams In bragging bow well he wa
and wclgbrd thirty poum's more than he ever did.
A few words now lungard to the ear may not bo uninteresting to some especially those
who are sufferers rrom varied and numerous forms of disease. Very few people need urging
t) consult an A mist when they haw a discharge ot matter from It especial ly If aocom panted
by a foul smell yet some will and that tmi strange as It may sound In tbla day of enllght
ment by advlco of physicians but surely It Is noter done by ono who understands diseases of
It Is a lamentable fact that somo of the older physicians (without any special knowledge on
this point) luvo a prejudice against tho stoppage ot purulent discharges from tbe car but this
Is based ujton tho erroneous teachings of old French writers Du Vtrney and Itard D. D. St.
John ltiKMta M.D. LU Dm Professor of Diseases of l!yo and Kar In tho University ot New
Vork City; Surgeon of Mauhattan Kjoand Kar Hospital; Consulting Burgeon of Drooklyn Eye
and lUr Hospital etc. and who Is considered tho very best authority on tho sbbjoct says In but
last workt "There Is no pathological experience on record which can sustain tbo assertion
that It Is dangerous to stop a dlschartro rrom tho ear." Let anyone acquainted with anatomy
consider this fact that there Is pcrhapft no part ot tbo human body which bas more Important
anatom'cal relations. Tho cavity of tho tympanaum Is oovorod over by a thin bony put to
which Is In direct communication with the cerebral meninges; tho floor Is close to tho great
Jug.ar Its Internal wait IsthoUbyrlnth wall covered only by very thin membrane and open
tng Into tho branches of tho aeouitlo nerve while on tho outsldo wo bavo a thin membrane
about as thick as paper. It Is oasy to sou that a continuous destruction of these part by sup-
puration unices cured In this part would sooner or later (which It always does) lead to serious
troubles In tho brslnandsiuctlme lu tbo lungsor heart. I find a large percentage of tbe
cajH.-shavlnga"runnlngtarMbatcalwac(iughaiidwbcnthooar Is cured tbe cough Is also
cured 'lit end ot being worse.
Then .oere is another linos of cum a that sometimes consult tbo doctor they complain ot
ringing or roarlngorothcr tiolsi-a in tho ear. lie tells them thor have oold and a doso ef
qulnlno per hut's is given tbla may be relieved for a time but sooner or later returns but tho
sufferer bad bis fears allayed by rccoi erlng partially from tho first attack and so does not feel
any anxiety this time and tries tbo old remedy again. It falls and so does everything else they
try and their friends don't sympathise as there Is no external evidence of the suffering caused
by this condition but His at least iuosthein to bunt upon Aurist who examines tbo ear
und be finds the car perhaps so far gono that It la Impoaslbls to restore Its full bearing powers
and ho must bate great skill Indeed tostop thveourso of the disease and keep the beartng
from bclLg lost entirely m far do thece coma run before tho pooplo consult competent skill.
If ptoplo would go to tbo Aurust -.very timo anything was tbo matter with their cart and
not wait to consult ph)slcbius and others tbey would suffer far less and preserve their hearing
much better as neary all the dlMi s ot IbU nrgn are curable cap eclally In tho first stages.

Tho diseases ot tho co are very numerousnearly ax) In number clearly defined and recog
nUed by tbo oculist all requiring different treatment In order to euro them and restore good
tslon. Yet nothing shows tbe folly ofgolng to tho general physician for treatment of this
organ than tbo fact that bo bas only sufficiently studied this complicated organ sufficiently
to reoognlM from three tn a dozen It Is In tbls and tho careful application ot proporly selected
remedies to tho and tho different affections of tbo eye that the superiority and tbo success of
tho Oculist consist.
Nearly all tho diseases ot tho ejo aro curable oven In tho severe forms If clearly understood
and properly treated and attended to In tbo earlier stage before It bas bad time to destroy or
Injure permanently tho vision. Iluttboae cases that show blemishes and defect of vision and
blindness so frequently are oases In which there has been dclav In cooking an Oculist and
valuable tlmo was wasted by trying somo domestic remedies or what Is nearly as bad trying
tbo ordinary physician.
I du not mean by my remark abovo to condemn or criticise the general practitioner for
treating Catarrh or diseases of tho Uvo or Eur that occur In bis practice. It Is his duty to give
relict Ut all who are suffering In anv and every war possible and no doubte.ll do the best they
can. Iluttney will all honestly confess that ther have not the means. In the shape of selected
remedlealutrumeuta nor tho timo to acquire tho skill and practice to do Justice to theso
What 1 do waut over) body to understand is that there are a class of specially Instructed and
experienced doctors men w bo bave devoted money time and study to these particular part
of tbo human body In order to acquire tho greatest amount of skill In treating It affections
and diseases; and pooplo who are suffering with any disease In theee organs will as far a
pocilblo iccovcr tho best and fullost use of theso organs who seek the specialist the earliest;
aud the physician will deal honestly with hi patrons who gives tbem such advice.
I see In tbls country many coses of Strabismus ("crooked eyes" they aro generally term d
which Is a defect lo appearance uncertain vision and weakens It. Nearly every one of these
never start to school without having tbls remodlod.
Kyelids that turn out showing tho Inside or thoso that turn In and Irritate the eye-ball can
alt bo perfectly cured. Artificial eyes can bo fitted and worn without any pain and to look
perfectly natural. 1 have a largo stock of them always on band.
Old granulated lids cured surely
A few uamos aro given below for reference that have boon ourod by me here. Many more
mitfht be given It necessary but theso havo boon selected because each one represents a
different und yet most common form of disease of the eye I
