Mrs. Elisabeth Metcalf Dead.
The Gazetteer announces with regret
the death of Mrs. Elisabeth Metcalf, wile
of Engineer Metcalf, ot the Missouri
Pacific, which occurred in this city Tues-
day morning last, at 4:30 a. in., the cause
ot death being pulmonary consumption.
The lady had been sick for a long time,
and, though a patient and uncomplaining
sufferer, she hailed death as a happv re-
lief from pain. She was iS years old, and
had resided in Denison for' the past six
years, where she had contracted social
amenities which will endear her memory
to a large circle of friends.

At about 1130 a. m. Friday a colored
man named Wm. Danson, was found with
an arm cut off upon the Missouri Pacific
track near the Morgan street crossing by
Mr. Newt. Woodring, engineer ot an
incoming freight train. He was brought
to the Mo. Pacific freight depot and Drs.
Bailey and Acheson sent for, but neither
surgeons would operate, the former con-
tending that it was a railroad case, and
the latter that it properly belonged to the
city. Nothing was done with the In-
ured man until about 7 a. m., when
superintendent Fleming having decided
that it was not a railroad case, the man
was removed trorn the freight house to
the residence ot a colored woman named
Black, in theaouth part ot the city, where
hi* injuries were dressed by Dr. Bailev.
How the accident happened is not exactly
clear as the man has told half a dozen
different stories about it. He told ticket
agent John Gerhtch that he was getting
upon a freight train and tell off between
the cars: he told an Evening Journal re-
I-orter that a white man shoved him un-
der the wheels of the incoming express
and stated to otners that he was going
home and fell down upon the track, that
he was riding out of town upon a hand
-, etc. Some ot these stories must be
taUe, but the one told Mr. Gerlach is the
most probable one.

New Boarding House.
Mrs. M. F. Pollock, of Illinois, who has
been visiting relatives in Denison for the
past month, has by the pursuasion of her
many friends, been induced to open up a
first-class boarding house in the building
No. tt8 on Main street, formerly occupied
by Werneberg & Son as a merchant tailor
establishment. Mrs. Pollock assures the
Gazetteer that she will run a strictly
first-class boarding house, and proposes
to give her guests the very best the market
affords. Those wishing to enjoy the
luxuries of home cooking should patron-
ize the place, and give the lady a trial.

J. Randall Brown, the mind-reader, at
the opera house to-night (Sunday).
The fellow with the outrageous laugh
in the parquette at the opera house, Fri-
day night, was very annoying to the
Bad boys, and men, too, still continue
to keep up their hellish deviltry in the
gallety at the opera house.
The man with the pop-corn and peanuts
was on hand at the opera house Friday
night. Of course he had hit assistants.
Of course everyone at the opera house
Friday night saw the “nigger” that be-
longed to the “White Slave” Company
making himself conspicuous by going in
and out of the middle aisle. Some people
will never learn any sense.
A portion of the Philharmonic Orches-
tra went over to Sherman Saturday to
play for the “White Slave” performance

Thia must be the “available orchestra”

A large audience witnessed J. Randall
Brown’s seance at the Sherman Opera
House, Friday evening.
The theatre-goers of Denison lost noth-
ing by the non-appearance of E. F. Mayo
and company, at the Opera House on the
1st. The Fort Worth Gazette speaks very
lightly of the company. Mr. Mayo
closed his Texas tour on the 30th ult., at
Dunlop’s Stage Ne 1, of New York,
says; “The crowning event of the Ger-
man opera season at the Metropolitan
Opera House took place on Wednesday
when “The Twilight of the Gods’’ was
rtormed for the first time in America
German name is ‘Gosttsrdacniiue-
rung,* and the music sounds like U.
The Gazetteer acknowledges, with
thanks, receipt of a copy of Jno. B. Jef-
fery’s “Opera House Directory and
Guide,” bearing the compliments ot the
publisher. It is lb* accepted authority
on the “dramatic” importance of towns
and cities throughout the United States
and Canada, and is invaluable to agents
The next attraction at the Opera House
will be Miss Marie Prescott, on Wednes
day evening, the 15th.

Manager O’Maley says it is the Council
and Marshal’s place to protect the patrons
ot the opera house from being disturbed
while witnessing a performance. The
Gazetteer only hopes that it will soon
be clearly defined whose duty it is, and
that it will be performed. The manage-
ment, we think, should insist upon having
a special policeman, and not depend on
Mr. Max Loewenthal is again ahead ot
Patti-Rosa this season, and is gradually

• THE WHITE SLAVE.
A well-filled auditorium and crowded
gallery greeted the “White Slave” Com
pany at the McDougall Opera House Frl
day evening. It was an audience more
generous than just, and lavished its ap-
plause upon a great deal of conventional
fire and fustian. The play is net Bartley
Campbell’s best, by any means, and
smacks too strongly of “Uncle Tom’s
Cabin” to be enjoyed, at least by the
case-hardened play-goer. The piece Is
never without interest, but it is so
thoroughly conventional in its construc-
tion and development that, but for its
scenic appointments and a certain current
ot mild though genuine humor running
through it in the persons ot a couple ot
the characters, it could not fail to be
wearying. Anything reasonable in emo-
tional melodrama ot this type is some-
thing we hardly dare to expect, but its
situations should at least aid in its nar-
rative development, and this, in the
“White Slave,” they hardly do. Its
Laceys and Bancrotts are samples of
savagery and bruitality so gross that the
scene-eating music-hall villian could
scarcely overact them while the Harriett
Beacher Stowe sermons its dialogue
preaches at various intervals trea t danger-
ously near the borders of platitude. The
plot is hackneyed, and a great deal ot the
stage business"painfully conventional, but
the dilemma ot an innocent girl constant-
ly menaced by danger keeps the interest
alive through the seven acts of the piece.
As we have said, the “White Slave” is not
a phenomenally good play, and at the
hands ot the Harry Kennedy Company it
receives only a fair representation. Miss
May Newman in the character of “Lisa,”
the “White Slave,” is graceful and con-
scientious, and but for certain grave faults
of elocution, her work would be quite
effective. Mr. R. J. Dillon’s work in
the heroic pait of “Clay Britton,” though
inclined to rant a little, was on the whole
acceptable, while “P. H. Stitch,” the
lawyer, impersonated by Mr. Frank
Drew, was probably the best acted part In
the piece. Some ot the singing of the
colored quartette was excellent. An inci-
dent which seemed to furnish a good deal
ot delectation to the audience occurred
between the fourth and fifth acts. The
curtain goes down after the explosion in
the fourth act to the accompaniment of a
“hurry” double forte in a minor by the
orchestra, and should arrise again Imme-
diately upon the scene where Nance, Lisa
and Clay float down the river on a spar
ot the wrecked steamer, the orchestra
being supposed to continue playing the
same cue till the curtain has gone up and
the spar has passed from view. Instead
ot it taking only thirty seconds to change
the scene it consumed about ten minutes,
and as the orchestra continued to play the
cue tor about two minutes alter the
tain went down, and had to be signaled
from within to stop—the audience con-
cluding that they were not aware that
the war was over, cheered and even
hissed them sbundly. The Gazetteer
makes this explanation for the benefit of
those who do not know that the Opera
House Orchestra is under the direction
of Mr. W. A. Everitt, who, as a leader ot
orchestra in theatrical work, is without a
superior in the State—or out of it. The
orchestra, which follows the leadership of
Mr. Everitt, makes no mistakes in the
playing of cues.
BROWN, THE MIND READER.
Mr. J. R. Randall Brown, the well-
know mind reader, who is announced to
appear in one of his unique and startling
seances at the McDougall Opera House
this (Sunday) evening, is a gentleman ot
wide celebrity, and has been subjected to
the severest scientific tests that could be
devised by the most eminent scientists in

Will Kirk, the boss pressman of the
Gazetteer office, was not on duty
Friday, and only showed himself in the
sanctum long enough to illuminate its
interior with the radience ot his all-per-
vading smile and deposit a bos ot cigars
upon the manager’s table. The cause of
this very unusual conduct is found in the
arrival at his heme of a handsome baby
girl—the first child, which made its ap-
pearance on Friday morning at 6 o'clock.
Will is very happy, but he is enduring
his felicity with remarkable fortitude,
consideriug that it is his first, and the

of loosing its pressman-in-chief from
a surfeit ot joyous emotion.

rives its name from the fact that the company pass
a very short time in th ion lag email bags contain-
ing beans through a hole in a board standing in a

from the thrower, and n very long time in dancing

The following from an Atlantic (Ga.)
paper, of recent date, serves to indicate
that Denison, if behind older cities of the
South in aristocratic tone and high taxes,
is at least not so in the matter ot her fire
department. The swinging harness here
alluded to as having just been supplied to
the engine houses of Atlanta have been in
use in Denison tor nearly a a year; “One
of the needs of the Atlanta fire depart-
ment have just been supplied—the swing-
ing harness. This is now used in alt
first-class fire departments, and ia regard-
ed aa indlspensible. Every engine house
in the city has this swinging harness. It
hangs above the place where the horses
stand when the men harness them to the
engines or reels. A set ot harness hangs
over each horse. The driver mounts into
his seat at the tap of the bell. By the
time he is seated the horses are in position
and down drops the harness upon their
backs. A few clasps are secured and the
horses are hitched to the machine. In-
stead of standing all the time with har-
ness on, they have nothing but bridles on.
The harness has already proved a big suc-

An Important Arrest
The arrest of a suspicious character
he has "robbed a traveler, fired a house, or
murdered a fellow-man, is an important
function of a shrewd detective. Even
more important is the arrest of a disease
which, it not checked, will blight and de-
stroy a human life. The frequent cough,
loss ot appetite, general languor or de-
bility, pallid skin, and bodily aches and
pains, announce the approach ot pulmon-
everywhere. It is said by those who have uP°n hU Sfner«f appearance, move,
witnessed hi* performances that he reads I or companionship, without waiting
the mii.d ot man with an accuracy that is
unerring, and that his manner of operat-
ing precludes the possibility of tricking or
illusion. He has been betore the crowned
heads of Europe, before statesman, before
shrewd and careful investigators ot these
strange phenomena, and all, from the
simple unconvinced to the stubborn dii
believer, acknowledged their inability to
account for the peculiar manifestations
upon any other hypothesis than that
offered by Mr. Brown. His seance is of
a refined and intellectual character, de-
void of the usual objectionable features
that characterize the class of entertain-
ments that come under the head of the
supernatural. Mr. Brown’s tour through
the South and West has proven wonder-
fully successful, and in all the principal
cities the largest theatres have been
crowded to their utmost capacity with
ladies **d gentlemen composed ot the
elite. Mr. Brown will be assisted in his
The lew* of the Week Boiled Down tor
The Golden Eagle clothing store has
just hung out a new glittering spread
eagle sign............T. B. Quitcom, while on
hia way to his home in the southwest
part of town last night was pounced upon
and severely pounded with a club. Quit-
corn knows who his aaaailant was but re-
fuses to make his Identity known, and it
it highly probable that the pouodiug was
not undeserved ...........The smooth surface
coat was being put upon the concrete
pavement in front of the Ferris building
to-day. The completion of the pave-
ment has been so long delayed on ac-
count of wet and cold weather that a
portion of it had dried out and began to
crumble, so that It had to be removed
from the bottom...........This Is the bill
collector’s day, and an unusually large
number oi people are out of town
—........The 4-year old son ot Mr. Goff
felt off the front steps at the residence of
Mr. Tupper, on Sears street yesterdkv,
and broke its arm...........There was a little
fistic difficulty on Cawtord street las’
night between two railroad men over
some money, that one charged the other
with having unlawfully used. The two
men were room-mates, and one declared
that the other had taken $2 out of his
:ket and spent it...........The earth has
away from the north aide of the
cuibert on the corner ot Sears street and
Mirick avenue, and it is hard work lor
teams to pull any kind of a load up on it

tressel ot the Denison St Washita railroad
near Red River and was hurt quite severe-
ly about the back and hips. He threw
his gun from him as he fell, but it lit in
the soft earth and was not discharged
It took the injnred man nearly an hour
to walk to the road where he waited till
a team came along, and he got the
countryman, who drove It, to take him
home...........Mirick avenue between Sears
street and Gandv is in a fearful condi-
tion. A stream ot water runs down the
alley between these streets and crossing
the avenue passes down through the
ravine and out through the Sears street
culvert into the valley to the north. This
stream of water keeps the avenue at this
point in an almost impassible condition,
and should receive the attention of the
street and alley committee. A culvert at
this point would redeem this part
of the avenue from the bad odor in
which it is held by those who are com'
pelted to pass that way...........The alleys
ot the city have never been seen in such
a filthy condition as they are at the pres
ent time. It there is any jail force
it should be pnt to work cleaning

dence on Moton struct took fire this
morning, from a defective flue, but the

north part of the city, died this morning
from inflamation.......Mr. J. B. Doffmyer,

weeks with billious fever, was able to be
out to-day for the first time........This is
the day on which the ground hog makes
his appearance to see whether he is fat
enough to make a shadow, the
tion- being that if he is not he goes
to grapple with the task of fattening up
again, but it he is he returns to his hole
to reduce himself to the regulation spring
standard. If he sees his shadow to-day
it will be by gaslight and it is therefor
probable that he is now at large........Two
men were severely hurt while tearing
down the frame of a blacksmith shop

them. One of the men named Bill
Smith is said to have had his back broken.

WE GLORY HOT.
BY MRS. TOM C.
We glory not in wealth and power,
’Tis transcient as the midnight dream,
But wisdom is our highest aim,
Our only object and our theme.
We seek not for those transcient joys,
Which will so very soon decoy,
We search not for those transcient toys,
Which please awhile, then pass away.
For wisdom’s store doth ever shine,
Its radience to us never dimmed,
Itsjoys are glorious and sublime,
They satisfy the hungry mind.
It is a flower that bloometh not,
Though it doth bloom in every clime,
It’s beauty is unknown, is not.
Though reared among the forest pine.
Wisdom is lasting as the mind,
Its joys they never will decay.
And in it we may pleasure And,
And which will never pass away
Drink ye deep of these crystal fountains,
There yon may quench your hungering
Thre you may find within those streams
The brightest, purest, gems of earth.
