W. M. Hanna & Co.
Tuesday morning a man came to
this city with two horses, one a gray
horse with no brands, the other a
gray mare branded 81 on left shoul-
der. He offered them for sale to
several parties, and at last succc eded
in selling the two for forty dollars.
As the animals were worth at least
double the sum, Sheriff Everheart
and Constable Spence concluded to
interview him, suspecting that the
animals were stolen; but the man,
as soon as he saw them approaching,
ran off. Spense at once procured
his horse and gave chase, but re-
turned in the afternoon without hav-
ing been able to overtake the

Prof. W. H. Chaney, editor of the
Labor Gazette, Portland, Oregon,
has placed the News under lasting
obligations for a complete set of his
Ephemerides, from 1800 to date.
This wofk is the only one of the kind
ever produced in this country. The
only work that resembles it is the
Nautical Almanac, which costs f.iom
$1 to $1.50 a year, and it does not
go back to the commencement of
the century. The Ephemerides be-
fore us contain the daily longitudes of
Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Sun, Venus,
Mercury, and the Moon, calculated
to noon at Greenwich, for every day,
the longitude of Uranus for every
sixth day, and the latitudes of the
planets for every sixth day. A work
as complete as this has long been
needed in this country.
We announce by authority, this
morning, Charles R. Crenshaw, as a
candidate for attorney for Grayson
county at the fall election. Mr.
Crenshaw was born in this county,
his father having resided in this vi-
cinity for over thirty years. He is b
young man of fine ratural abilities,
has received an excellent law educa-
tion, and has an enviable reputation
by all who know him. We have no
doubt Mr. Crenshaw would fill the
office with ability. We call atten-
tion to his card published in another

Two parties were brought before
the Mayor Tuesday morning,
charged yvith violation of the city
ordinances. One, charged with be-
ing drunk and disorderly, was order-
ed to the rock pile for ten days; the
other, a negro boy, about sixteen
years old, named Louis Stewart,
charged with disturbing the peace,
was sentenced to twenty days con-
finement, but a stay of execution
was granted, on his promise that he
would leave town forthwith. It ap-
peared during the trial that Louis
has been in the habit of exacting a
tribute of ten cents per month fronl
other bootblacks, an occupation tax
in fact, otherwise, he would not al-
low them to shine. As he is a big
strapping fellow they paid it to avoid
being beaten by him. As we have
already stated, his mother is in the
penitentiary for life for killing her
husband with an ax, and this preco-
cious youngster will doubtless be
sent to the same place at no dis-
A Manifest Absurdity.
. It is manifestly absurd to claim for a
mere stimulant, tonic and aSberative prop-
erties. Yet tilts is what is daily done by
the venders of cheap local bitters, colored
to made them look attractive, and agree-
ably flavored, but the alcoholic basis of
which is of the v lest and most hurtful
description. The transcendent success
of Hostetter's Stomach Bitters, the lead-
ing alterative tonic of the United States,
has induced many of these compounders
of drams in disguise, to attemt the count-
erfeiting of this standard medicine, but.
their eftorts have never proved successful
on a large scale, and they have themselves
in many instances "come to grief,"
through the instrumentality of the law.
The genuine Bitters have, indeed, a
spirituous basis, but they are emphatical-
ly a medicine, since their botanic ingre-
dients are signally efficacious in overcom-
ing and preventing chills and fever, dys.
pepsia, Ijver complaint, constipation, and
many other disorders.
