Yksteuday was a memorable day
throughout the South. It was the
funeral day of Jefferson Davis, and
never in any city in this section was
a funeral witnessed to equal it in
impressiveness and imposing gran
deur and solemnity.
A Dallas man attempted to com
mit suicide on Monday by shooting
himself with a pistol. Two of the
balls missed him entirely mid the
third hit him in the leg. His bad
marksmanship is accounted for by
the fact that the weapon was one of

says that buying a home on the in-

put by the real estate agents, is like
robbing Peter to pay Paul, and that
the only way yet discovered to save
rent is to move every month.
The proprietor of the New York
Hotel placed the flag on the build

Jefferson Davis' death was announc-

ably defended himself on the ground
that he honored him for his services
to his country before the secession.

ail of the papers are agreed that the

denounce the practice of carrying

jeady and willing to take human life
i just so soon as an opportunity pre-

to be presumed and is a fact that an

for him, lie is not in any sense a

Tm-; race issue has mixed up
things delightfully at Springfield,
' )iiio. A colored teacher from a
normal school was assigned as a
teacher in the High School. The
white teachers and pupils protested
and the school board rescinded the
order placing the negro teacher in
the High School. The republican
clerk, however, refused to transmit
the board's action to the superin-
tendent. There are fifteen hundred
negro votes in the city and the re
publicans are afraid to offend them.
On the other hand there is danger
of white republicans deserting to
Mb die, but principles live for
ever. While there remains one sur-
vivor of those who bore in the thick
of battle the colors of the Confeder
aery, the south should see to it that
be is not forgotten—that he is not
left singly and alone to suffer on ac-
count of a principle for which the
south was united—a south he in
honor served.—Austin Statesman.

honor the dead chieftain and hero
