A ROUND OF THE VARIOUS RE-
TREATS IN THE CITY.
Dust Everywhere-Scenes nt the
Gardens and Springs nose
nail Match Etc.
Thl reporter like every one else yes-
terday was animated by nn overpower
ing tlealre to And a place where be could
Tor n time at least escape the. piercing
heat and suffocating duat of the city.
The street cars afforded ready means to
one of moderate flnanolol circumstances
of attaining this object as they run to
all the favorltu resorts In and about the
city. Hoarding one of these many
vehicles the reporter found himself
being conveyed along through clouds of
blinding dnst until the Inviting grove
that shades Jonas' garden hove In Bight
and there he disembarked to breathe for
a spell the fresh cool air that swept
through the grounds. Here was n host
of people enjoying the bcnellts of this
resort listening to the flat concert and
threading the mazes of the seductive
waltz. Fun and merriment held high
carnival and the happy throng pro-
longed the programme until long
after the shades of night had
settled down upon the earth
and tho glittering gems of Heaven
beamed down upon the scene. Every
evening this populnr retreat Is visited
by large delegations In search of cool
air and an hour's pleasure.
Not far off entrancing strains of muslo
softened by the distance came floating
on tho night's cool breeze and told that
elsewhere young folks In happy glee
were measuring tho swiftly passing
hours with flying feet and giving little
thought to the cares and trials of the
fast approaching morrow. Such a scene
one beheld at Somniers' garden where
the strong attractions bad wooed a num-
ber of pleasure seekers and where the
eool shades and Inviting nooks served to
retain them until the night was well
spent. Here they found many new at-
tractions and abundant provision made
for their pleasant entertainment.
Tho frequent olouds of dust rolling up
froui Alamo street told of the crowds
hastening along that thoroughfare anx-
ious to gain the cooling shades of the
Mission garden and look upon Mahncke's
beaming countenance. Hero they found
no cause to believe that the malicious
rumors of a few days ago had any foun-
dation but on the contrary were met
with every evidence of a permanent
prosperity. The splendid concert held
nil hearers enchained with melody and
made them'wlsh that the hours of the
Babbath would move more slowly by
that they might the longer enjoy these
strains of lingering sweetness. Whole
families from the gray haired aire to the
prattling babe sought this convenient
retreat and over their foaming beakers
of cold lager.' congratulated themselves
that they lived In San Antonio where
auch pleasures are provided.
The usual crowds thronged the cars
that led to the springs and the grounds
there were a moving mass of humanity.
All went merrily as a marriage bell
save the little Incident between Dick
Smith nnd the would-be pugilist Lilly.
The latter struok Smith who was lust
Imbibing a glass of cold beer
and caused the contents to be poured
overhls clothes. Smith enraged at this
waste of good beer turned and struck
Lilly when the spectators Interfered
nnd prevented further trouble.
Another little commotion was created
when X'ollceman Ferris "pulled" a man
for carrying a murderous sword cane.
The latter disavowed any bloodthirsty
Intentions but the policeman told him
he had violated the law anyhow and
would huve to submit. The orowd of
pleasure seekers did not disband until
near midnight. .
At the Ilase BallparktheSunsetawere
out for practice and played a game with
a picked nine composed of young men
about the city The game was interest-
ing and of course resulted In n victory
for tho Sunsets. The score stood 23 to 7.
The Sunset boys as a rule played as
earnestly as If heavy stakes were
wagered on the result but some of them
showed carelessness because It was only
a practloe game.

Frolicsome Belles nt Painted
It has been lncontestably proved that
Fainted Cave Is a valuable- health re-
sort. It was not strange therefore that
two of the fascinating belles should go
to that locality to enjoy Its salubrity
and nt the same time avail themselves
of the natural advantages offered by
that charming section of country.
Among other benefits they partook of.
sand and shower baths which seem to
have been the most popular. Thele are
to be procured gratis. As some who
have already sojourned at Fainted Cave
may not be aware of the means by which
these baths are to be procured for those
uninitiated the modus operandi Is here
described. The private watchman of
the railroad was going his rounds one
evening about 11 o'clook and among
other things Inspected the wnter tank.
While doing this be heard voices. In
order to discover what was the object
of people being In that quarter nt that
late hour he took oil his bat and screen-
ing his lantern awaited disclosures. To
the surprise of the watcher the voices
belonged to five of the fair sex the two
San Antonio belles and three others.
As they came nearer he found the dam-
sels bad divested themselves of all gar-
garments and were as Eve Is usually
represented. With hushed laughter
they went to a sand bank adjacent and
there gambolled and frisked In the sand.
After this operation they came to the
water tank and washed tho atoms of
sand from their bodies. At this Inter-
esting stage of the proceedings the
watchman who had been quietly chuck-
ling over the affair found to his horror
that the heat of this light In his lantern
bad set fire to bis hat and was burning
his hand. The hat dropped off and a
blaze of light showed the forms of tho
nude fair sex. With borrilled screams
at their being discovered t bey rushed
pell mell away and vanished as the
watchman expressed It like a dream.
O'Leary Wins the Fight from Lilly
A good sized orowd gathered Saturday
night beneath the cool pavilion of the
I'ostofllce Exchange saloon to witness
the. meeting O'Leary and Lilly In the
prize ring. There were several exhibi-
tions by local sparrers before the event
of the evening the most Interesting be-
ing between Howard and SI Jlorrls.who
won the enthusiastic applause of the
audience by their scientific work. The
men were about evenly matched and
some neat passes and clever hits were
made. When time was called for the
event of the evening the spectators
grew more enthusiastic and O'Leary
was plainly the favorite. Lilly Is n tall
spare built man of good muscle nnd
quick notion weighing about 139 pounds.
Hlsoponent O'Leary is much heavier
built and showed up In Splendid trim-.
His weight was 10 and he has acquired
quite n reputation as a heavy hitter SI
Jlorrls acted as second for O'Leary and
Mr. Riley filled alike place for Lilly
while Mr. Banks was chosen umpire.
The men faced each other and shook
hands then the contest was fairly bc-
Sun. Lilly made several wild lunges at
'Leary which were oleverly warded
and proved himself an adept at getting
down on his knees whenever O'Leary
sent his sledge hammer fist In his direc-
tion. The first round ended with Lilly
decidedly worsted and when the men
came to the scratch for the second
O'Leary's friends called loudly for him
to beware of losing by a foul. The
second round ended with Lilly being
knocked against the ropes and before
they had gone far with the third Lilly
threw up tho sponge and O'Leary was
declared winner of the S1Q0 purso amid
tho boisterous congratulations of his
friends. Lilly had his hand bddly
wounded In the first round and this
prevented his continuing the light. He
was greatly overmatched at any rate
and his warmest backers had little hopes
of his success.

HOPE OF LIFE.
FORTY-SEVEN SUICIDES COM-
MITTED IN THREE "YEARS.
Rev. Mr. Fulklnburg's Discourse
at Trinity Methodist Episco-
pal Church Last Night.
"Which liuvc vro hnrc at nn nrtrtinr f the :
sii'd both sure ami rtcadfiut" ll.b. 0-19.
it Is always dlfllcult to foretell the re-
sult or an nctlon; and at best It Is cov-
ered all over with uncertainty. Having
to do with men passionate men hot-
blooded men evil-tempered men Is far
different from dealing with an ascer-
tained and unchangeable fact of physical
lire. But some things must abide. Some
things are absolutely unchangeable In
the present estlmato of human Interest.
Homo things must be unchanging and
out or our power to change. Else human
life would have no foundation upon
which to build and the future present no
redolent beauty to Hope's anticipation
for the earth would be filled with the
most awful uncertainty distemper and
final ruin. The tendency or the human
mind is to magnify and dote upon what
we have not and to minify and to think
lightly of whntwehave. In manycases
tempted to think that It has nothing the
mind asks for and expects and receives
nothing "Ask for nothing and ye snail
receive nothing" How many are there
who have nothing Invested In life and of
course walk tho earth as men depend-
ent upon those who have. Somo have
more others less. One man puts his
finger upon the throbbing heart or the
nation In his marvelous Influence while
millions suckle whatever lire they get
from the publlo breast. Never will the
day come when every man shall be
worth the same amount or money or
wield the same measure or Influence or
mould equally publlo opinion and It
never ought to come. To Introduce It
would be to Introduce n communism of
destruction. And yet there aro some
things that by nature and right are
common to all men. One of these com-
mon things Is that spoken or In my
text "Hope" "whloh hope wo have."
Thank God for that single sentence.
Something that nil men can 'and must
have If lire comes to their hearthstones
with blessing. Now how does this
hope'affect mankind in Its Inciting and
restraining Influences? Hope Is the
mainspring or human action. 1. As to
Its stimulating and encouraging effects.
There Is nothing that so holds a mind
steady and completely controlls the
will as a hope or success. It makes
no difference whether there be many
or few difficulties In the way whether
thero' be antagonisms purposely un-
friendly or whether they be but of the
fieneral character that opposes all men.
et but a man be possessed ot a well
firounded hone and he U ready to march
orward. Often little and trivial things
will lnsplro a sinking faith and despair-
ing heart to new action A vessel lit a
tremendous storm had been tossed about
until but ono mast stood. Rigging
gone compass gone no way to ascer-
tain the whereabouts of the vessel. The
passengers and many or the crew gave
up to die supposing that they were In
the midst or the ocean. But suddenly a
white bird settled down upon the mast
and new hope dawned nnd with u new
power nil hands pulled for the shore.
As long as a man can hope that long
can he keep his. head above the water
because he has something to work for.

given to all men this Incomparably val-
uable blessltig Hope. This given all
other blessings may and will be em-
ployed; every opportunity Improved;
every propitious circumstance used.
2. Not only Is hope a great stimulant
In life but It restrains as well.
Tho bone ot attaining a certain amount
of wealth restrains many merchants from
Investments which If not reckless are
at tho best but uncertain. Many men
would plunge Into the depths of vice
and debauch but for the hope of merit
ing respect and confidence by a life of
upriguiness anu virtue anutueysucceeu
In establishing that which they had lost
These remarks are general but they
may be applied to Individual and per-
sonal life. If the above bo true that
hone Is the only thing left of alltbe bless
ings ot Pandora's box and that It has
been given to all alike then there are
some practical questions that must be
1 Tho contribution of any act look or
word that In any way or to any extent
weakens "this hope whloh Is an anchor
to t be soul" In any man is wholly wrong.
To you and me there may be many
people who we think would better till
a grave than walk the earth. We may
think so. Rut don't look at that wretch
and think that he Is as he would be; or
as he would have been had he constant
ly hoped. No! Some time somewhere
some one either purposely or otherwise
stuck1 a knife Into that man's hope and
then be died so far as any success In lire
Is concerned. And through all these
passing years lie lias lived a living uentn.
There is nothing that I can think or now
that Is as execrable and deserves the
damnation of Gehenna as surely as that
heart so possessed or Satanla malevo-
lence that It would rob the poorest and
weakest and vilest or the hope or a
brighter and better to-morrow
2 The withholding from any man a
look act or word that would feed his
nope anu thus give him a new inspira-
tion is wholly wrong.
And along this line I tlnd the soliv
1 my brother's keeper li" 'and f
catch a irllmDse of the In
tense practicability of that wonderful
rule of Him who never turned the poor-
est away Whatsoeveryou .would that
men should do unto you do ye even so
unto them." Do not Judge any man un-
til after yuu have put yourself In his
place; then you may. But depend upon
It It will be n tender Judgment.
mere nnv neen i. suicides in tins
Alamo City Inside of threo years and In
every case I'll venture there has entpred
this question or tho hopelessness of life.
And 1 tell you under certain aspects life
presents nothing hopeful. Let a man
inn lomi every conscious power or ins
being In a well meant and earnest effort
to attain any object and let each effort
be less and less hopeful until discourage-
ment like a whelp of hell sits over
against him laughing at his tears and If
ever heaven bends over n human llfo and
ancels stand In nwe before the nosslblll-
tlcsofamoincnt.lt Is Just then. And
yet suicide Is wrong. It Is murder-
murder of self and "no murderer can
nuerlt the kingdom of heaven."
In view or the fearful consenuences of
losing hope 1 say that he who robs me
of my hope robs me of all I have or can
have and Is a traitor to his race.
ot only Is this true of the ordinary
affairs or the world about us but It is
iiKcwise true or ine luture worm.
Take from the Christian world lo-dar
Its hone of the life to come and what
would thero be to live for or to expect.
There Is no place so dear nor sacred
as a man's home There are no associa
tions so pure as those of n Christian
family. There are no sweeter recollec-
tions ot the human memory than the
dear old mother race In the far off home
In the years back. Hut they are all
gone. I'.vcrythlng gone but tho sweet
ictures or memory oo amiu my Idle-
ness I cro out to tho irravevaril and
plant my mignonette ami sweet honey-
suckle over their breasts and I plant a
spray of Immortelles as best expressive
of my hope when lot a ruthless cruel
nanu snatcnea it nway ami groans
thero Is no life beyond."
I do not enro whether It be a true orn
delusive hope. Let me believe It. Do
not tear from me the last the only thing
that Is sweet to my taste though It be n
perverted taste. 1 brand that man who
wouiu seek-10 ucsiroy nope in tne Hu-
man breast of a future homo and a fu-
ture lire or bliss as a traitor to God and
man. So that 1 look upon the publlo at-
tacks oringersoll upon the very founda-
tion of men's hope divinely given hope
life Inspiring hope as the meanest nnd
most execrable of them nil.
'1 hat man need not sav he Is n friend
of the race; he can not be aught else than
nn awful "will o' the wisp" arising In
glorious uruuancy out to ueguue lie
weary wanderer Into the denser dark-
ness. No; we have this hope God given life
Inspiring nnd Its white finger points al
ways to a uriguier ocuer to-morrow.
-et us heed Its sweeet counsels be ad-
monished of Its whisperings and follow
qulrkly and gladly Its footsteps.

other was to have General Butler after

General of the Marine Hospital Service
telegraphed the health authorities at
New Orleans that the Secretary of the
Treasury has directed the vessels or the
revenue marine service to patrol the
coast or the United States Including the
gulf coast as a precautionary measure
against cholera. It Is expected that the
President will Issue an executive order
calling attention to the necessity for
more stringent precautions against the
Introduction or cholera and using the
greatest vigilance on tho part or agents
or the Government both at home and
abroad. Quarantine will probably be
established against Canada and also
against Mexico. In which latter place
there Is reported an epldemto or yellow
fever. The epidemic fund of which
there Is an unexpected balance of about
$78000 will be utilized by the au-
thorities for these purposes. The ad-
ministration has determined to make
every possible effort to prevent the In-
troduction of the contagion.
