The correspondent from Walnut
creek who writes to the Statesman
deprecating the action of PrcctDct No.
3 in making nominations and express-
ing the hope that the county conven-
tion may not be led into the same error
should have sent along with his com-
munication his teal nonie to insure pub-
lication. The Statesman has thought
aa be does about nominations. It
would have Democrats successful but
it would not have tlum defeated in
party "harness and it eurncstly hopes
they will not be defeated should nomi-
nations be made.
Toe sensation so far this week has
been the eclipse of the sun and the
one yet to come is inc county conven-
tion on Saturday. Whether to nomi-
nate is what agitates the delegates and
Democrats generally. Principle and
party organization dictate nominations
but policy rises up and demands that
no nominations bo made. Generally
speaking those who are candidates for
cttice and io good standing in the Dem-
ocratic party preter that the .conven-
tion decide not to nnnuna'e. There is
much nervousness in Austin and there
are fears that the buck fever will break
out to an alarming extent by Saturday.
Georqe IIarrol one of Major
Jones's rangers says that when the
light commenced between the Bass
party and Deputies G-imea and Moore
he was sitting in Highsmith's livery
stable near Koppel's store and as soon
ss he heard the shots he picked up his
gun and ran out into the street and
there discovered the dead body of
Deputy Grimes. Finding it impossi-
ble to get a shot at D iss or his gang
without endangering the lives of some
of the citizens who were shooting at
the robbers he went back to the stable
and asked Mr. Smith to let him out
the back way so that he could head
them nil. He did so and he ex-
changed several shots with the
party and succeeded in hitting
Bam Bass in the side by shooting
under his horse's neck. Mr. IIarrol
was within fifteen feet of Bias and
beard him say "Ob Lord" when be
fired. About that time Msjnr Jones
and. Dick Ware and another person
came up and Ware stopped took a de-
liberate aim at Barnes as he was get-
ting cn his hore and shot him through
the head. Bass and Jackson then
mounted their horses aud amsnea out
ot town. IIarrol jumped on the dead
robber's horse and in the company of
Ca.pt. Hall and several of era followed
Bam three miles that evenintr. The
next morning he went with Sergeant
KeviU's tquad and came up with Bass
as described by Xevill.
The Wat to Do a Noble Act.
President Jordan of the Central Hail-
road knows how to do a noble and
generou deed. Deputy Sheriff Grimes
of Williamson county who lost his
life at the bands of tm Bass left a
widow and severa! children. It was
bis act which led to the close of the
great train roober's career. Thrsugh
bis performance of an official duty he
met death ; but at the same time and
by the same act a band of desperate
highwaymen were broken up. The
following true copy of a letter speaks

A Test. This year with its boun
tiful crops of all kinds will serve as a
lesson to the people of Texas towns
and cities. For the past three or four
years crops have been short and espe-
cially the cotton crop which is looked
to to bring money into the country.
During these three or four years a
peuod of contraction in the financial
policy of the government there has
been universal complaint about bard
times and a great falling off in busi
ness and the industries of the countryf
and there has been much talk and
(peculation on the subject. The pa
pers and the people of every city and
town in the State have theorized
a good deal about the loss of tra Je ana
the causes that produced it. Compar-
isons in trade and exports of different
places have been made and all sorts of
arguments engaged in that would tend
to fathom the knotty question of "hard
times" and bring back to the towns
and cities a revival of trade. Wars
have been waged on railroads; the
bondholders have been denounced and
each and everybody have been treasur
ing up to somebody else the respt nsi-
bility of the "hard times." But aitei
all the fuss and worry of the
last few years and after all
the theorizing and comparisons
the prophesies and piedictions we have
learned that what was necessary fcr an
improvement in the condition of the
country was time and hard work and
proper industry and economy on the
part of the people. We have learned
also that there was little difference in
the condition of the people in the dif
ferent sections and that every bt ite
every city aad town had ielt the
weight of the hard times and much
in the same proportion. But we have
only britdy alluded to these thmtxs
that the people may learn a profitable
lesson from this year different from
others in the abundance of crops
of all kinds. There has ' been a
failure in nothing. The cattle drives
trom Texas have been heavy; the wool
clip immense; wheat and oats and
corn and potatoes and fruit indeed
everything in the eating tine has been
made in an unprecedented abundance
while the cotton yield promises to be
three times greater than for any season
in the past four or five years. If then
relief don't come to the people the com-
ing fall and winter they may well
conclude that the fault lies with the
'powers that be." This year will
prove a fair test.

travelling printer John T. McGinty
better known among the fraternity as
"Texas Jack" after maay years wan-
dering in the West snd on the Pacific
slope has again turned up in that city.
McGinty is a prince among wandering
printers. He has walked f.-om Cali-
fornia to Quebec and to Boston and
back again. n has made several trips
from Lake Itaska to Lake Ponchaar-
train and set up type in every town
on the Mississippi river between St.
Paul and New Orleans. Not content
with wandering over the North Ameri-
can continent he has crossed the At
Untie and tramped over a great part
of Europe. "Texas Jack" is a man of
considerable intelligence keen percep-
tive faculties sod the incidents of his
life would make an interesting ro-
mance. The object of bis youthful
affection is still living in bis native
city Boston. He said yesterday that
in all his wanderings his thoughts bad
ever been fixed on Boston his old
parents whom he bad not seen in
eight years and the object of his
youthful love. He served in the late
war in the Ninth Massachusetts under
Ben Butler. He was in New Orleans
during the Butler stay in that city.
He afterwards went to Texas where he
obtained bis nick-name. He is now on
his wsy to Boston to visit bis old par-
ents and marry his only and first love
and settle down ths rest of his days.

er every servant was in the room gaz-
ing in amazement at the tuugtetivt
spectacle. Mrs. S'fton wa ly-
ing prone on the door' in a
dead faint hr dres ir-rn In several
places aud her hair disheveled and
Mr. J. stood looking at them aghasr.
The woman told a SLory about suddenly
awakening and finiiug herself in Mr.
J.'s embrace in bis room. The ap-
pearances were conclusive and the
beautiful housekeeper quit the house
the next morning $500 richer.
Another and successful attempt at
blackmail by this woman is of more
recent occurrence. Aa before the
woman armed with first class letters
of recommendation and this time un-
der the name of Armande Daplisse
obtained a siuation as governess for a
respectable family consisting of bus-
band wife a grown son two grown
daughters and a little girl. Miss Du-
plisse was queit and gentle in her de-
meanor bdo gave such evidence of cul-
ture and refinement that the family be-
lieving the story she had told about
her once wealthy and aristocratic con-
nections treated her as their equal.
One of the daughters was engaged to
be married and ber suitor came and
to him the governess was presented
and he was told that the same courtesy
was due te her as to the other ladies of
the family. Upon this the young gen-
tleman took' a kindly inteiest in the
beautiful governess and frequently
sought her company. One night after
the rest of the family had retired the
young man Frank went to the li-
brary to get a book to take to his
room to read. The gas was turned
low snd as he entered the room
he saw a white form on the divan.
Drawing nearer he saw that it was

on the cushion of the sofa half con-
cealed by her arms anl it seemed to
him that he could hear sobbing. lie
called to ber by Bame. She started in
confusion and put her bandkcichief
to her face as though to wipe away the
tears. She gave some plausible reason
for her presence in the library but
showed no inclination to go out of it.
Frank asked her the cause of her grief.
She looked up shyly; then sitting up
her eyes glaring almost fiercely her
breath coming short her boaouv rising
and falling and seeming to swell with
an intense emotion she told Frank
that she levjd him.
Frank was astonished at this and
remonstrated with incoherent words.
In passion a.e accents the woman told
him how intense how consuming was
ber love for him and yet he was to be
another's! Oh that thought alone was
killing her I The youth lost his wits
and sat there as in a dream listening
to this beautiful woman .confessing her
love for him. So well did she act her
part that Frank discovered that it was
day and the household astir only when
a servant passing in the hall; saw the
library door aj'ir and the faint glimmer
of light and pushing the duor open
saw the couple uttered an excla-
mation of surprise and hastily retreat-
ed. That the servant told her young
mistress Frank's betrothed of what
she had seen in the library there is no
doubt for the maiden instantly sent
for him and demanded an explanation.
Frank told the truth but she would not
believe him. He sent for the gover
ness to conhrm nis story instead oi
doing bo she fell on her knees begging
forgiveness but oh she loved Frank
so. Tnis connrmea tne maiden's sus-
picions and with her eyes suffused
with tears she left her lover and the
governess alone. Frack implored the
woman if she loved him to set nim
aright in the mind of the family. But
she shook her head sadly and mur-
mured that it would be too great a sac
rifice; and even if she could bring her-
self to mike the sacrifice where could
she go? She had no money no friends.
Upon bis question as to wnetner sue
would go if he gave her money and
letters of introduction to friend? whose
influence would procure her a genteel
and remunerative position. Miss Du
plisse hesitated a moment and then
seemingly by a great effort told him
that she accepted his offer. The let-
ters were soon written the contents of
Frank's purse (some $300 or $400)
were placed in her hands and within
an hour the beautiful governess and
her trunk had vanished. Journal of

Here we are at "Sweet Bingen on
the Rhine" as Mrs. Norton has de
scribed it though we do not find much
in the town itself to warrant her poet
ical enthusiasm. It is a very nice lit-
tle German town of about seven
thousand inhabitants among whom
Murray says are many Jews -hich is
pretty much the case everywhere
from Jerusalem to the Eastern shore.
The town of Bingen is located in a
bend of the river and so sharp is this
bend that the river is not visible for
more than a mile either way the view
being entirely shut out by the high
hills. It is built upon a steep ascent
but vehicles can wind around among
its crooked and mostly narrow streets
and finally ascend to the summit at
the White Chapel from which the
view is very grand and imposing. On
the mountain side though f he heart of
the city are the ruins of Klopp castle
which with the grounds attached
forms the garden of a private residence.
It is a grand old ruin and has been
partially restored and roofed in by its
owner.so that it can be visited and a fine
view of the town the Rhine and the
surrounding country obtained from its
roof. A dungeon in the lower story is
pointed out as having been once ten
anted by a king one of he Henrys we
forget which and in one oi the upper
chambers are some ancient paintings
of Roman consuls. It was evidently in
its day a strong castle and would be
difficult to tske now if defended by a
good garrison. We were shown all
over it by the daughter of the gar-
dener who could speak a little English
and did her best to enlighten us as to
the history of the canle.
The next tower in view from B ngen
is the famous Mouse tower on a rck
in the middle of the river. It bns been
restored and is quite picturesque. It
derives its nsme from the well-known
legion of Bishop Hatto who built this
tower as a sort of custom house where
tolls were forcibly levied on all passing
vessels. He was a great tyrant and
during a famine that prevailed bonghl
np all the food in the district and sold
it at such exorbitant rates that the
people soon had no more money and
were in' a starving condition. They
sent to the bishop a large delegation.
begging for bread and hinting that
they would take it by force if be did
not give it to them ne receiv-
ed - them very kindly and told
them to go to a barn with their
wives and children and they would be
supplied but no sooner were they in
the doors than he closed and locked
them in and set fire to the barn. On
hearing their cries of anguish be
exclaimed "Heir Low the corn-mice
squeak! I tret rebels as I do mice;
ween I catch them I burn them." The
legend goes on to say that out of the
ashes of the barn there eame legions of
mice which destroyed all his grain
swarmed through the castle compel-
ling all his retainers to fly and finally
to escape them the bishop proceed-

church door the horse instigated by
the saints to whom the girl had

the castle of her true love both the
father and the bad knight having
broken their necks in the effort to
overtake her. Every old pile of stones
on the Rhine has its legend. The his-
tory of these ruins as far as known
shows them to have been the scene of
everything that was bad and vlllacous
in human nature not only whilst the
Rhine country was in the possession of
the Romans but also after it came
into the hands of the Christtaus. The
legends however are impossible and
improbable stories in which an effort
is made to people the walls and the
ramparts of the old castles with spirits
and fairies gnomes and devils. They
were human devils and they are bad
enough when they give full play to
their passions without resorting to the
supernatural. However there is always
a love story connected with these le-
gends which tends to give them a sort

Home and Farm.
To Fatten Pigs. We extract the
following from sn article on pork by
S. A. Knapp of the Western Stock Jour-
nal: "During the first six mouths ol
pig life the rapid production of bone
and muscle is of primary fmportance.
Oil cake beans peas middlings from
spring wheat grass and milk would
seem to meet the conditions. Feed at
least three times per day (and better
five times) a drink made of equal quan-
tities of rich wheat middlings oat meal
aud corn meal thoroughly cooked add-
ing water till the proportion is five
pails of water to one of the mixed
meal. Some milk sdould be added
the more the better. If there could
be added a quantity of cofiked pota-
toes thoroughly mashed the mixture
would be complete; feed soaked corn
as much as the pigs need. The quan-
tity of com fed may be as increased ss
needed. I'oder this treatment the
pig will retain that round and fresh
appearance carried by animils in rapid
gtowth. Continue this management
until the pig is six months old ; then
by degrees accustom the pig to soaked
meal for drink adding a little of the
cooked tor relish. For one month be-
fore the pig is sold the chief diet
may be dry or soaked corn. This
treatment will enable -the farmer to
place his pigs upon the mirket at an
average of one pound per day under
one year of age. The extra labor of
cooking the food for 100 pigs would
not be one hour per day; the ad van
tags would range from ten to fifty
pounds per animal. In summer give
plenty of clover range also some I
patches in the pasture should be sown
to oats aud some to rye so that the
animal may consume the largest amount
of gren food possible. From four to
eight years of corn per day is sufficient
for large hogs till a short time before
selling when the amount may be in-
creased. In no case allow swine to de
pend for drink upon surface water. A
clear brook or a good well should be
the reliance and a well is the better
because the water is less liable to be-
come impure by the wallowing of the
swine; and it can be readily deter-
mined whether all the animals are
drinking regularly which is just as
essential as the question of food. In
case the skin is dry the bristles rough
and the animal appears gaunt and
feverish give concentrated lye every
second morning for two weeks at the
rate of one-half box to a barrel of
water. Also furnish an abundance of
sulphur ashes and salt. 8alt swine
upon pasture regularly three times per
week. In no case should corn be the
sole diet except in the closing stages of
No method will be found to give
better results for fall feediug than to
mix wheat shorts or oatmeal with cook-
ed pumpkins or potatoes and feed it
liberally with the corn for a relish.
When we go to the table we -want
something as an appetizer and a hog is
the same he needs a relish. The abil-
ity of all animals to digest food is lim-
ited and if dry corn be fed that limit
is soon reached ; if passed the animal
soon breaks down. Then the rule
should be always feed a little less dry
corn than the animal will consume and
give plenty of nutritious slops to fill up.
A man forced to live on corn bread and
water would soon lose his appetite but
with the substantial he mixes some
lighter food vegetables relishes and
good drink. Use the same good sense
in feeding a hog and the cholera will
disappear. We leave it for every farmer
to fix up the good hog slops to suit
himself which he will doubtless vary
according to the force of circum
stances. In the fall we should say
cook pumpkins or potatoes and scald
in shortsthen add water till the whole
is of the consistency of porridge.
Let it be observed that ' the cost
of cooking a relishing drink for
hogs is very different from cooking the
entire food. In winter feed dry corn
and for drink use wheat shorts and
well water pumped fresh. Three pails
of shorts to a barrel of water is just
right; then add two pails of hot mush.
This warms the water and sweetens
the drink. One half hour of extra
labcr per day in preparing the muab
will be repaid four fold u pork pro-
duced. It can be demonstrated that
fifteen ears of corn per day judiconsly
fed will produce as much pork as thir
ty ears fed in the ordinary way. Com-
fortable places to sleep and eat dry
and not exposed to the wind are es-
sentials. Finally weigh the hogs
every week if practicable and if yon
do not average at the lowest ten pounds
of pork for each bushel of corn fed in
the winter and twenty pounds in the
summer come to the conclusion that
something is wiong with your stock of
bogs. This great difference between
summer and winter is accounted for
by the green food cotitumed.
EsccrcHEox Marks. John B
Poyntr writes to the KenUtcly Lite-
Slock Record respecting Escutcheon
Markings in milk stock that while
they may be important as indicating
duration of flow other equtlly import-
ant markings such as that of qiality
are as desirable. "The faculty of se-
creting the coloring with their product
of milk is indicated by the color of
their skin. Thus: the cow with car-
rot colored skin eliminating dandruff
will afford the yellowest milk upon
which the cream will rise in the short-
est time; they are consequently most
desirable for V.9 batter dairy. The
cow with orange-colored skin without
dandruff will afford yellow milk
which will hold the cream globules in
suspense for a greater length of time
and is therefore more desirable for
family nse. The cow with ash-colored
or white skin produces white milk and
cream and is therefore without the
merit of giving yellow color to her pro-
duct snd an ill-bred specimen of de-
sir ble stock for butter.
