''Coming Events Cast their Shadows
Tho telegrams from Now Orleans
yesterday announced that the gov-
ernments of Louisiana would hold
a joint mooting to-day " for tho
purposo of having a bettor under-
standing." We cannot Bay that wo
approve of a democratic logislaturo
thus compromising itsolf by recog
nizing tho cxistonce of any powor
within the bordors of its State with
which it should troat in tho execu
tion oMaws essential to tho wolfaro
and prosperity ot tho people it rep
resents. It looks like virtue going
out of its well boaton and defined
course to hold a high converao with
vico. It certainly is giving a re
cognition to usurpation which will
eovor its rotroat gracofully and ob
scure the glaring Bharao which
should oncircle ovory recolloction
of the frco-booters and of thoir do
ings. But tho concession has been
made and the only thing now loft
for tho democrats to do is to deport
thomselvej liko victors at the meet
ing to day. They should lot thoir
demand bo for complote surrondcr
and lettheFinchbackors understand
from tho boginnlng that tho pooplo
of Louisiana havo rights which
thoir representatives " dare main
tain." The Kollogg frauds have prov
ed too Btronc even for tho noses of
radical congressmen who have raani
fested a hearty disgust for tho deeds
of their partyundcr tho leadership
of their Louisiana hoathoren and
aro leaving the ruinists to fight their
own' battle bofore tho Committoe
to which tho Louisiana oloction
case has boen reported. We aro
half inclined to bolieve from the
rovolations and developments which
aro boing unoarthod almost daily
throughout the country that "thore
is lifo in tho old land yet." The
great work of "investigation" and
disclosure has really begun and
almost at the right placo. Had
marched up to tho king-boo in tho
rrt-Rftt hive of corruption ists U. S
Grant and compelled him to ais
close all tho circumstances of tho
jobbing trade ho drove with Jim
1 isk anu Uoourn in wnicn nis in
nate stinginess in the general di
vision of the spoils secured for
him from tho lamontod(?) Fisk the
characteristic synonym of "tho na
tional hog" had it gone further
and ascortainod all the facts and
circumstances of the little cottage
at Long Branch the source of his
titlo to fino horsos educatod dogs
etc.- takon a poop into somo
of his stocks in various ontorprlsos
throughout the country then indeed
might tho American people raiso up
their hands and call the foarloss
movers in "investigation" blessod.
As it is however wo have much to
be thankful for much to encourage
us in the hopo that liberty still
lives and that the rights of tho peo-
ple are sacred and can be protect-
ed. We havo soon Colfax and
Patterson and thoir compeers go
down in the groat pool of ignom-
iny from having played tho double
rolo of hypocrits and traitors in
tho Mobilicr affair and Pome-
roy and Dix brandodas stock job-
borsin tho modern enterprise of
publio frauds and now last though
by no moans least of all the good
works boing completed by the
groat' civil revolution going on
we see Louisiana coming from hor
troubles with her banners flying
and hor people happy in the relief
they will ero long experience from
thoir political tormentors. We want
to see the good work go on to uoe
nriminals branded and denounced
and a "whip placed in every honest
hand to lash tho rascals naked
through the world."

Texas seeds three times the number of
mail routes now in use. A targe portion

This may bo had without expense to tho
governmentbut rather to its advantage in
tho iuoreaed business that would full to
the post office department. Newspaper
publishers feol the lack of mail facilities
very seusibly from the inability of thoir
would-be patruus to got papers without
spending a day iu going to and from the
post-omce. We hope to see tuts fault rem
edied. Waco Advance.
It has not boon an hour ago sinco
one of our subscribers who lives
near Bug Eyo " P. O. was in our
oflico complaining of tho irrogulari-
tioB of tho mails. Ho stated that
ho had not reecivod his paper for
three months. It certainly goes to
the oflico regularly and wo trust
will hereafter find its way to its
destination. We can concoivo of
but ono reason why tho mails do
not enter that oflico and that is its
uninvitinsr namo. While wo on-
dorso all that the Advance has said
with referenco to tho establishment
of new post-offices we think that
something should bo dono at tho
same timo to impart systematic
promptness to thoso already env
atod. It is not pleasant to tho far-
nior who becomes accustomed to re-
ceiving his paper regularly to visit
his Dost-offico and find it absent
from his box.

from gunpowder up to newspapers. If 1
we give them any ground on the Noah 1

A very curious suit arising out of ono
of the inoidents of the late war botwecn
Prance and Germany will shortly be
brought lo trial in the Freuch oourls. Du-
ring the war a German soldier was shot
near the Tillage of Vnux thereupon a
Prussian column swept down on the place
and captured twenty-eight peasants who
bad Bed ror refuge to a church. The itub-
siutn. determined to have revenge for the
death of the slain soldier announced to'
the frightened oapttves that three of their
number would be shot leaving the selec
tion of the victims to the prisoners. The
Prussians proposed that they should draw
lots and kludly offered them the use of a
soldier's helmet for the purpose of an urn
but the offer was dcolined Finally after
they bad been shut up in the church for
seventy-five hours I hey reported that the
three required victims had been Beleoted '
by a mnjorlty though no information is
given as to how the soleotion was made.
The unfortunate men woo lound themselves
n a minority were led out and bhot and
now their widows demaud damages irom
the twenty-five survivors on the ground
that the three should have been eeleoted '

Batuinq is Coid Watbr. Nothing is
more common than a ouBtom of many per-
sons to have a oold water bath immediate
ly on leaving their beds as a daily habit.
Delicately organized ladies notunfrequcnU
ly have established the same eourse con
sidering; it oonduoive to health. There is
an impression that it invigorates the indi
vidual hardens ine musoies ana eirengia-
ens the constitution. The sudden abstrac
tion of caloric or vital warmth in that way
has not only injured but dostroyed more
than were benefitted thoreby. A reaotion
as it is called a glow of warmth that sub-
sequently follows is a direot draft upon
the system to meet a sudden loss of vitali
ty and it is by no means so oenenoiat as
theoretically imagined. A tepid bath
makes no suoh injurious demands and
therefore is not injurious or perilous for
those of a frail atruoture.
