The promised distribution of
prizes to the subscribers of the
Monitor was had oa Saturday,
April 7th. Messrs. W. H. Bel-
lamy, Kelly Peters, and Geo. W.
Kingree, who were entirely disin-
terested persons, were selected to
conduct the drawing. A list of
all the subscribers who had paid
up was first prepared and num-
bered in the order in which they
first appeared on the book, which
list was inspected and compared
with the books by the committee,
to ascertain that it was correct, and
to prevent the overlooking of any
one who had paid up the year's
subscription as required. An equal
number of small envelopes were
then placed in a box. The com-
mittee then retired to another
room, and taking out seven envel-
opes placed in each a small ticket
on which was written the name of
one of the prizes. The seven en-
velopes containing the tickets for
the prizes were then returned to
the box and it was well shaken.
The committee then returned and
proceeded with the drawing in the
following manner: A boy was
blindfolded and stood near one of
the committeemen who held the
box. As each name was drawn
from the list an envelope was
drawn by the boy from the box
and handed to another member of
the committee, who opened the
same in presence of the crowd and
announced the result. In this
manner the whold list was called,
the following persons drawing the
prizes set opposite their names
S. A. Kendrick—.Organ.
W. M. McDonald—Rifle.
J. A. Lawrence—Set Plates.
J. W. Clayton—Set Knives and
F. M. Dyer—Five copies of the
Monitor one year.
Jno. H. Jones, Quitman—Three
copies of the Monitor one year.
C. D. Willingham—One copy of
the Monitor one year.
We regret that so few of our
subscribers were present at the
drawing, but those who did witness
it were entirely satisfied with the
careful and impartial manner in
which the committee conducted it;
and for this patient and careful
servioo the committee have our
Burglars at Work.
A number of burglaries have
been committed in our city recent-
ly, and circumstances plainly in-
dicate that they were not only
committed by the same person,
but that ho waB quite a novice in
the business, though the house-
breaking part of the job was in
each instance very neatly and
successfully accomplished. On
Tuesday night, April 3d, the sad-
dle and harness store of J. W.
McMurry was burglarized, and the
ear marks pointed to the same
burglar. Mr. McMurry suspicioned
Henry Searcy, a negro about 20
years old, who had been seen in
the store in the evening. He'se-
cured the services of officer Terrell
and several of the boys, and they
went on horseback the following
night to the home of the negro
about three miles from town, and
made tho arrest. At first the negro
vehemently asserted his innocence
and stood pat on his piety, but a
little persuasion (and we guess a
little hemp) " brought him round,"
and in a short confession he told
how the act was committed, and
where the stolen goods, con-
sisting of fine hand-made boots
and shoes, could be found. Every
article was recovered, and now
Henry Searcy languishes in jail
awaiting the May term of the dis-
trict court, at which time he will
be given a certificate of admission
to the mechanical and industrial
institute at Huntsville, Texas.
I desire to say to my customers and the public that I am "still in the ring." I have rented the front
of the building formerly occupied by Mr. Krauss until I can rebuild and am now receiving an entirely new
and complete stock of goods, which I had just bought in New York before the fire, at bottom prices. But
little of my old stock was saved from the fire and that will be cloaed out regardless of cost, at once. Don't
forget to call on mo at the corner store formerly occupied by Mr. Krauss.

—.Your reporter casually saun-
tered into the residence of Mr. J.
J, McDaniel on Tuesday, just to
see if the new millinery goods, &c.,
recently received by Mrs. McDan-
iel and Miss Ussery, were up to
the standard of general rumor. He
was positively amazed at the beau-
tiful hats, trimmings, &c., dis-
played. The half had not been
told. It is a pity that scarcity of
business houses compelled them to
go to a residence with that stock,
for it would be quite an ornament
to our town if well displayed in a
nice business house. These ladies
are meeting with spleneid patron-
age, and are constantly receiving.
—The public generally, and the
ladies in particular, are invited to
Bake Turman's ice cream parlor.

When everything looks blasted blue,
And misery sticks likes Spaulding's glue,

And makes the bum feel like a king.
