Those who keep hogs in the city
limits better put their hog pens in

While the city council complain
at the nuisances permitted on some
private premises, they maintain the
worst nuisance in the city—the old
disease-breeding sewer that runs
under Main street and meanders
like a deadly serpent across lots to-
wards the railroad. The smell that
arises from this sink of pollution is
enough to create a good sized plague
Capt. Dan Webster showed us
a cling peach yesterday which meas-

and weighed half a pound. The
tree is three years old and bore sev-

arc very large. It is a seedling, and
grew from a stray pit accidentally
dropped in his garden. The Cap-

Hold Your Noso.
A councilman remarked at the
meeting last night that a city official
should be arrested and punished for
creating a nuisance as promply as a
private citizen. We say so too, and
every one of the city council should
be arrested for permitting a fiJthy
sewer to empty its contents upon
private property, there to exhale its
poisonous gasses to the imminent
danger of the public health. Stick

The Ivjayor stated that the object
of the meeting was to take decisive
measures in regard to disinfecting
the city, and also to devise means
whereby the officers of the city may
be made to use more dilligence in
enforcing the sanitary ordinance.
It was moved by Councilman
Boss that the Marshal be ordered to
immediately notify every body to
cleanse and disinfect their houses
and grounds, and if the request be
not complied with in twenty-four
hours to arrest the person so offend-
ing, bring him before the Mayor,
and prefer charges of maintaining a
nuisance against him.
Moved by Councilman Raynal
that $75 be appropriated out of the
general revenue to purchase disin-
fectants, and that the same be under
the control of the Mayor, board of
health and the Marshal. Ad-

An excursion party is organizing
in this city to visit the Pan Handle

headed by Rev. L. H. Carheart.
They expect to be gone six weeks

Wc commend the action of the
city council in refusing to quarantine
the city. With proper precautions
in the way of cleaning up and disin-
fecting, we do not believe Denison
is in the least danger. Our city is
so dry, and is provided with such
thorough drainage, that there is not
near the danger here that there is 111
those towns located in a low, fiat
country. Denison is very much like
Austin in this respect. Whenever
yellow fever visits the coast towns,
cases are reported in Austin, but
they have always proved to be . per-
sons who went there with the dis-
ease. No one was ever known to
take the fever in Austin from such
patients. Put the city in a good sani-
tary condition and we would have
no fears if a well developed case was
imported from New Orleans or else-

race of three heats against time, on
Thursday, September 19th, 1878,
(the fourth day of the fair,) on the
Exposition track, for a purse of
$1,000, thus giving the people of
Missouri, Kansas and the West an
opportunity to see the finest and
fastest trotting horse in the world.

to say adieu to my old comrades of

many a "round" together, but the
days of the "drummer boys" arc
numbered with the things of the
Cast. For nearly six years we have

poor fellows, we have come to grief.

A Hall Breed Murdered Near
The Stewarts Supposed to Have
Committed (lie Deed.
Capture of O110 of llio Stewart
Will Simpson, who was in Caddo
last week, tells us that last Saturday
some citizens of Caddo in search of
the Stewarts surrounded three men
in the chaparral near toWil, and suc-
ceeded in capturing one of the party,
a white man named Dennison, who
it is said belonged to the Stewart
gang. He had several gallons of
whisky in the brush near where he
was captured, which he had been
retailing out to the natives. The
other two, thought by some to be
the Stewart boys, escaped.
Latei in the day a half-breed was
murdered in* cold blood four or five
miles from Caddo by two men who
took his horse and rode off. It is
believed the men who did the killing
are the same men who were -with
Dennison. Mr. Simpson says their
capture of Dennison and the killing
of the half-breed caused intense ex-
citement in Caddo.
For fear the Stewart party will
carry out their threats to kill certain
citizens of Caddo, everybody is
armed, and the town is guarded
