Ex-United States Treasurer
F. E. Spinner is in Washington,
on a brief visit from his Florida
plantation. He is in remarka-
bly good health, and can write
as rugged a looking signature
as in the palmiest days of the
history of legal tenders.
Dio Lewis' monthly for No-

The commissioners' court of
Bell county has entered an or-
der authorizing the issue of
$100,000 6 per cent, county
bonds for tbe erection of a new
coarthouse. There is said to
be some opposition to the
scheme, but it is admitted that
the present courthouse is not
only unsafe but unsuitable. It
remains to be seen what shape
the opposition will take.
The friends ol Mr. Randall
who is sick in Philadelphia, now
in Washington claim that he
will be elected on the second
ballot. The Cox men claim
that both Randall and Carlisle
are making a mistake, and that
Cox will lead them both on the
first ballot. It is asserted that
the lobby is dead against Ran-
dall, from whom no favor could
possibly be expected.
Dallas Herald: Arthur is re-
ported to have commenced on
his message to congress. If
the president were celebrated
either as a thinker or writer we
might expect a good deal from
a message three or four weeks
in preparation, but we are not
likely to be dazzled with such
a good start; however, Mr. Ar-
thur is likely to give the tele-
graphers and newspapers much
to think about and worry them
There is a whole chapter of

know before that the students
of the aristocratic college hail
got their work down to such
nicety and perfection. But
there is no place like the great
Harvard when it comes to pol
ishing and fitting a young man
for the stern duties of life. The
Budget of Boston thus refers to
one of the special features o
tbe Harvard classical education:

The passenger train oa the
Mexican National railroad was
wrecked on Tuesday night at 7
o'clock near Lajarita, station,
22 miles from Laredo. The
train was on time and was run
ning at the fate of 22 miles an
hour, when all of a sudden the
engine turned a complete somer-
sault and landed upside down
twenty feet from the trade; it
was followed by the express ear
and two passenger coaches.
The fireman was killed and the
engineer badly wounded. The
train was at once surrounded
by an armed band of forty Mex-
ican desperadoes and robbers.
The express car was robbed of
f$ooo in silver bullion which
was carried off on pack-mules.
A train was heard coming ia
the distance aad also a company
of soldiers. The robbers lost
no time in getting away. The
fish plates had been taken from
a couple of rails, which were
misplaced just sufficient to
throw the train off the track.
Want of time alone saved the
passengers from being robbed.

—Lena Gayhart, a German
girl 18 or 19 years of age, late-
ly sentenced to the penitentiary
on a charge of theft, has been
pardoned out by the Governor
to get martied. It appears that
she was wrongfully convicted.

an invalid lady, formerly of

—At Fort Worth the city
council passed an ordinance
authorizing the city assessorand
collector to proceed at once
with the collection of the
amounts due by property own-
ers for the improvement of Maia
and Houston streets. About
$55,000 is due and it is likely
tbe property owners will make
wry faces at the collector wheh
he calls with his bills.
—It will be remembered that
last September the body of a
murdered negro woman was
found in a branch in Lee coun-
ty near the Washington county
line. In the district court at
Giddings, Wednesday, James
Taylor, a negro, was found
guilty of murdering Sally Chap-
en, the jury assessing the death
penalty. The evidence devel
oped one of the most villainous
murders ever recorded.

countries with tea.
Late observations prove that
the great red spot of the
planet Jupiterts still to be seen
although it is very faint and its
color has faded away. The to-
tal disappearance of the remark
able object which Jupiter has
exposed to the view of our as-
tronomers for several years is
undoubtedly near at hand.

Prof. Edward Hull considers
that throughout the early geo-
logical epochs known as Ar-
chean, Silurian and Carboaifer-
ous the sea covered North
America, tbe British Isles and
Western Europe, while a large
part of the North Atlantic area
existed as dry lands. He urges
that if his conclusions prove to
be well grounded the doctrine
of the permanency of oceaas
aad continents, as tested by
the case of the North Atlantic,
must be discarded.
