Ex-Gov. Roberts, of Texas, should
be accepted as the type of Democratfc
honesty rather than-the Tennesseean.
Roberts never in fiis life flickered from
the straight path of the true faith,
but Polk wont awuy after strange gods
and worshipped a bastard off-shoot of
his party. Roberto kept faith with
the people and saved their money;
2'olk forgot his training and the peo-
Oke of the most striking as well as
true sentences of Governor Butler's
Massachusetts inaugural was that in
which ho said that "the doors of in-
sane establishments, bo^i public and
private, open altogether too easy in-
ward and with too great difficulty out-
ward." It is well enough for Gover-
nor Butler to provide against contin-
gencies. Should his recommendation
to submit the question of woman suf-
frage to a vote by the women of Mas-
sachusetts be carried, there is no tel-
ling how soon he would be trying to
break out of a lunatic's cell.
It occurs to tho average patriot
that tho time has arrived for the Dal-
las Times to cease firing on the "Dago
City." The Ochiltree matter is a dead
issue, so to speak, and though Marsh
Polk actually passed through Ochil-
tree's district to its western border,
there is no proof that Galveston con-
nived at his flight or obtained any
portion of the Tenness*ean's pocket
change for deep water. Stcrritt must
be silenced somehow or other or the
"Wharf Company" is doomed.
Connecticut's funded debt is $4,-
057,000, and she now floats bonds
bearing only three and one half per
cent interest.* She is the first state
that has been able to shove securities
at. that fate. Georgia successfully
tried the experiment of four per
cent's in 1876-7; then the general
government used three and one half
per cent's freely, and later three per
cent's. It will probably come to pass
that all the solvent states will lie able
to handle what money they need on
three per cent long bonds.
As there is some prospect of the
passage of the bill pensioning Mexican
veterans, it is well enough to cajl to
mind the fact that Capt. Brinson, Col.
Daggett, Qen. Darnell, H. A. Harris
and A. J. Brinnson are the surviving
members of the company that went
from Tarrant county. If there are
others in the city or neighboaing
counties the editor of the Daily Dem-
ocrat—himself a veterau—would be
gtad to get their names.
STATS SPECIALS CONDENSED.
Denison, Jan. 15.—A thief broke into
the residence of Mr. M. A. Gehan, yes-
terday afternoon, while the family were
absent, and broke open a trunk, and
stole $170 cash.
Sherman, Jan. 15.—Chapman, Bradley
& Co.'s dry goods store was burglarized
last night, dress silks valued at about
$1,000 being taken. The thieves were
so thoughtless as to leave their valises
at home, aud took new ones from the
store to pack the plunder in. No clue.
Decatur, Jan. 15.—To-day has been
one of the busiest days of the season,
and our principal houses report heavy
salqg, both wholesale and retail. The
Cates c6tl mine caved in a few days ago,
wounding several parties. They were
exoavateo In time to saVe loss of life.
Abilene, Jan. 15.—A tight occurred
about 10 o'cleck Saturday night on the
eastern edge of town, between Zeno
Hemphill and a young man named
Breeding, in which the latter received
two shots in the breast, lie died in a
few minutes. Hemphill walked up in
town and gave himself up to an officer.
Texarkana, Jan. 15.—Mr. Ellis, the
United" States lish commissioner from
Washington, arrived here last evening
on special car No. 2 with German carp
for Teras. He has one thousand appli-
enntsto supply with lish, and
will commence distributing In Tex-
arkana on the lflth. His dates through
TexaB will be Sherman the 17th, Dallas,
19th; ^ften to Austin and Sanf Antonio.
San Antonio, Jan. 15.—The Ben
Thompson trial commenced this morn-
ing, but thus far no new evidence has
developed. . Ben was neatly dressed and
exhibited great nonchalance. A state
conclave of Knights Templar is called
in this oity from the 12th to the 15th
day of April next. Nine deaths last
week hre reported by the city phy-
15.—A young English-
Beddingpains, feeling de-
spondent last night, tilled himself with
morphine. Good natured friends walked
him all around town through rain and
storm all night and saved his life. In
an accident At Jacksonville to-dav, a
young boy, name unknown, was killed.
Bowie, Jan. 15.—C. M. Arnold, gen-
eral merchant of this place, was at-
tached this morning by L. & II. Blum,
Galveston, and Sanger Bros., Dallas.
This evening Mr. Arnold made an as-
signment for the benefit other creditors;
Judge B. Green, assignee; liabilities not
over $2,500.. He will pay dollar for dol-
San1, Saba, Jan. 15.—Owing to the
usual amount of moisture in the ground,
constant heavy frosts are rapidly rotting
the groOL<>n our ranges, ana stock of aU
kinds arsrno* doing well. Especially ia
this the case in counties west of this.
Every morning the grass is loaded with
frost, which melts during the day. The
process of melting and freezing daily
^continued will render out ranges insulli-
to support eur stock.
Tyler, Jan. 15.—Saturday night about
12 o'clock the lire alarm was sounded.
In a few minutes quite a crowd had
gathered around and found the fire had
broken out in the row of frame build-
ings adjoining the ruins of J. E. Mar-
tino's old stand, lately burned on the
south side of the public square. The
lire originated in the small store build-
ing owned by A. McLazarus, a Jewish
rabbi, and within twenty minutes after
the alarm was sounded the four build-
ing all adjoining were enveloped In
flames. Scarcely any of the contents of
any of the buildings were saved, aud
several parties made narrow escapes,
with their lives. By the untiringefl'orts
of the crowd, the old City Hotel build-
ing, on the opposite corner, was saved
from the flames. This la the second lire
Tyler has had within the past week, and
it'has imbued the contractors of our
water works to an extraordinary zeal in
their speedy completion. This last lire
is strongly suspected to have been in-
cendiary, though the evidence is not
sufficient to lead to tho arrest of any
Dallas, .Tan. 15.—At a country dance
at Rowlett's creek in this county Satur-
day night, Frank Bullington shot John
Stroup dead. Hullington and a com-
panion, living in a different neighbor-
hood, went to Rowlett's creek and en-
tered a ball room, announcing they had
not been Invited, but had come to run
the dance. Stroup protested against
their conduct, when Bullington drew a
pistol and shot him through the breast.
Stroup whirled around several times,
exelaiming twice, "damn him. he has
killed me," drew his pistol, fired two
wild shots and fell dead. Both men
stood high in their communities, Stroup
being a general favorite. Bullington
escaped, but a big posse has been scour-
ing the country for him yesterday and
to-day. The feelings of the posse and
their expressions are of a most bitter
character, and fears for Bulllngton's
life are entertained if he falls into their
The management of the Fay Temple-
ton burlesque opera troupe and man-
agement of the Dallas opera house were
arrested here last night while giving a
performance of "Patience." in violation
of an ordinance prohibiting shpws on
Sunday. The ticket seller was arrested
eloven timeB during the day. All were
fined ten dollars apieee in the police
court this morning. The Jopera house
was crowded last night.:
The case of the United States vs. ex-
Deputy United States Marshal Went-
worth Manning, charged with perjury,
was called before United States Com-
missioner Bentlv to-day, and the charge
withdrawn by Postmaster Whissen who"
had made it. Manning was no sooner
set at liberty than he was arrested on
the same charge by a state officer.
Whissen haying gone before the state
court and made affidavit. His reason
for so doing was that the penalty In the
state court for the crime alleged is much
more severe. Manning is under bond

sives will soon be made simply motive

rapidly than its density and becomes
equal to zero while the density has still

ments he notes the following results:

of M. Kraevitch have attracted wide at-
tention ; they bear not only an electri-
cal illumination, but other subjects in
which human beings are interested if
they cannot control.
People must remember that all at-

but he was asked 140, hnd only found a
very few even at that fancy figure. All

An "Uncle Tom's Cabin" orgftttlelza-'
tion, traversing the South, > has among
the outfit a pack of bloodhounds to chase
the runaway Eliza. In Norfolk the peo-'
pie rose against the introduction. of
bloodhounds as slave-hunten, because
it was not true to history. The old
planters about Norfolk say they never
saw a bloodhound in the whole South in
slavery days. Tie dogs used for track-
ing runaways were common hounds,
trained for the purpose, and not for any
thing else. • They had a keen acent for
tho game, but would not bite.' Then
was no danger in them. The Virginia
gentlemen became so zealous for truth,
and resolved that. history! should <be
vindicated, that the theatn management
thought it safest to keep the blood-

The long rexed question of the <tx*
trerne limit of life, as proved by authen-
tic records, gives an interest to the vlew
taken of the subject not by men ca-
rious speculators, but by grave actua-
ries. Dr. Farr, In his tables of the ex-
pectation of human life at various ages,
not only accepts 100 as a noorded age,
but estimates the average duration or
life beyond that limit, as in the case of
females about one year, nine months
and three and a half days, and. in tho
case of males at about one month Ms*
than thattime. —
