from Montreal: “I envy you in

likely to get of the annular eclipse
of the sun, which to you will appear
a partial eclipse—-on the conjunc-
tion of die moon with the god of

New Orleans, you being situated
further west, will see nearly the
whole passage of the moon’s dark
body over the sun, that luminary

tion of the United States or Mexico,
although the central path of the
shadow paases over the latter coun-
try at Tasnpico on the Gulf and
Cape Cofrientes on the Pacific

mittee, with the exception of $75. Ot the

that In regard to any deficit Mr. Smith
was ready to make good any shortage;
that he would ask that a committee of ex-
perts be appointed to examine these ac-
counts before any action was taken, aa

Ths Fall Particulars of tha Sad Affair.
O. M. Kimmis, a young man in the em-
ploy of the Pacific, as extra freight con-
ductor, la dying from the effects of a pis-
tol wound received in an encounter with
a burglar, Wednesday morning, between
the hour* of twelve and one o'clock p-
m. Klmmis* room-mate, Conductor J.
D. Conliak, has furnished the following
particulars of the sad affair:
The scene ot the tragedy Is on Morton
street, the third dwelling west of the
Conductor Conlisk retired about ten
o’clock, and, as was his habit, left the
light turned down until such time as hit
room-mate should return.
about 12:30 F. X.,
Klmmis, who had been spending the eve-
ning in the society ot friends, returned
home. A* he waa about to enter the
gate his attention waa attracted to a man
who was sitting on the edge of the side-
walk, his head reclining on his hands.
mis hesitated, anti "Whs going to
speak to the man, but he laughed, sup-
posing it was a certain railroad man of
bibulous habits, whom he had seen under
similar circumstances on more than one
occasion. It now turns out that this par-
ty vras a confederate of the assassin and
burglar who shot Klmmis. Conductor
Conliak and Klmmis have a front room.
After passing into the hall, an abrupt
turn is made to the left to reach their
When Klmmis opened the door, the
light was burning dimly. When he en-
deavored to pass into the room the door
only partially opened.
EmxnuwHU room-mate in bed,
and in an instant it occurred to him that
some person was behind the door. He
passed into the room and, sure enough,
there waa a man concealed behind the
door. The burglar made an effort to pass
Klmmis, but the young man, who is of
dauntlcsa courage, grasped the burglar
by the arm and struck at him; the burg-
lar than clinched with Klmmis. In the
struggle, the stove was overturned and
some chairs. The burglar, who was a
man of powerful frame, shook Kimmis
loose, and taking a revolver from his
bosom, leveled it,at a distance ot not over
three feet, and fired; the ball passed
through the body of the young man and
penetrated a sine trunk, and was found
among the contents next morning.
Klmmis thus describes the sensation of
being shot: “I felt just as if I had been
struck on the breast with a sledge ham-
mer, the pain for a moment was terrible,
and almost suffocated me.’’
Klmmis staggered to his bed and laid

who turned up the light and saw his
room-mate tying limp and pale on the
bed. Klmmis did not faint, although the
blood waa ebbing from the terrible wound
in his body. In a calm, tone of voice he
related to his room-mate the incidents of
the struggle and the sad sequel.
Dr. Williamson was called and admin-
istered to the sufferer. The doctor states
that the young man bore his pains with
great composure and fortitude.
It seems that the burglar had been in
the room for some lime; he had secured
the gold sleeve buttons from the shirt of
Conductor Conlisk, and had also pilliaged
his pockets ot two knives, keys, and $60
in gold, over $50 in greenbacks and sev-
eral pieces of silver coin, making in all
about $75. He had finished his work and
was leaving the room when he heard the
footsteps of Mr. Kimmis on the porch.
What a pity it was that some good
providence did not delay the steps oi the
young man, that the terrible tragedy
might have been averted. A moment
later and the burglar would have gained
the street with his booty, and one
precious life been spared. A burglar is
like a rat, they will fight to the death
when they are cornered.
THE BURGLAR WAS WELL CLAD
and had on a black suit and wore a
slouched hat. The lower part of the tace
was concealed with a colored handker-
chief, he was thick-set and very muscu-
lar. At the time of writing (Friday) no
clue had been obtained whatever as to
the identity of the assassin and burglar.
The articles In his possession may lead
to his capture, it is the only hope. A
shrewd detective, with the incentive of a
re ward, might “work up” the case.
Klmmis will die, the wound i6 mortal.
Dr. Nagle, who is the attending physi-
cian, holds out no hope. He may live
for several days, but the shade and the
gloom of dissolution Is settling over the

Mr. James T. Vanstoo, secretary of the
Dallas County Alliance, in a letter to the
Dallas News, shows his disapprobation of
boycotts as follows:
I am glad to see that Sanger Bros, have
had that independence to stand right up
and maintain their position and reputa-
tion as business men, which has char-
acterized them in the past. They have
not seen proper to pander to the whims
of a few individuals who are directing
this boycott tor some gain to themselves.
And further, I say to these schemers and
cliques as seen in this move of boycotting
a road to fame and fortune, l, for one,
shall denounce them and use my in-
fluence as an officer in Dallas County Al-
liance, to prevent them from ever getting
within the sacred precincts ot our order.
The Franklin Paper says:
The recent boycott of the Mallory Line
by the Knights costs the farmers of Texas
over $ 500,000, and as we have always
stated, it would be to the interest ot the
agriculturalists ot Texas or any other

This coming without solicitation from
Mr. Robinaon speaks well for the reputa-

A new phase of boycotting mania has
arizen in Western New York, where the
merchants have formed associations to co-
operate and pool their unpaid claims. At
stated periods these uncollectable ac-
counts are put up at auction and sold to
the highest bidder. The idea is that
after this has been done once or twice the
delinquents will pay up in order to avoid
the exposure of their unpaying habits.

Fort Worth, Tex., Feb. 10, 1886.
For the benefit of suffering humanity,
without any request of Dr. Prentice or
his knowledge, I make the following
statement: I have for years been sorely
afflicted with catarrh in my head, and at
times my sufferings were almost insup-
portable, attended almost every night of
my Jife with paroxisms of sleeplessness
and nervousness, with fearful concussions
in my head that were truly alarming. I
have been under Dr. Prentice’s treatment
for three weeks, and, from my feelings
and symptoms, I am entirely free from
the disease, and my health in every par-
ticular seems to be as near perfect as any
one’s; and to all who are suffering from
the same complaint, 1 can most sincerely
recommend them to go to Dr. Prentice
for treatment; Rev. W. D. Wear.
I hereby certify that on Monday last I
placed myself under Dr. Prentice’s care
to be treated tor catarrh, from which j
have suffered for years. I have, been
greatly relieved in this sliort time, and am
hopeful of a permanent cure. I tried
many so-called cures before, but never
felt so relieved as I have under Dr. Pren-
tice’s treatment. I sleep well, breath easy
through either side of my nose, and my
terrible throat trouble has entirely passed
away. Rev. N. A. Craven,

My daughter, Etta, has been suffering

fensive secretions have been so bad that
her breathing was greatly interfered with.
Her breathing, while she was asleep,
could be heard in an adjoining room. She
has been under the treatment of Dr. C.
Prentice, at the Tremont House, for two
weeks, and every bad symptom has passed

tirely deaf. Now, however, after only
one week’s treatment, her hearing has
been greatlv improved, and now hears
better witho'ut an ear-trumpet than ever

that if the treatment is kept up for one

formerly a fireman on the Texas & Pacific
railroad, who resides at Bonham, Tex.,

tertiav he visited Dr. Prentice at the Hotel
Pickwick, Fort Worth. Dr. Prentice
worked at Mr. Chapman’s case less than

been entirely deaf. Mr. Chapman’s :
tonishment and delight were unbounded.
WHAT A PHYSICIAN THINKS.
Fort Worth, Tex., Jan. 29, 18S6.
To those who may be suffering, as I
have been for two or three years, with
catarrhal deafness: Go and see Pr. Pren-
tice now, for waiting will sooner or later
be the utter destruction of so important
a sense as the hearing. So go anti be
cured, for I can and do with pleasure re-
commend Dr. Prentice. Having been
treated bv him, I know whereof I speak.

Low to Miss Emma Sims. Mr. Low is
well known in thU section of the country
and has hosts of friends in Denison. H©
is a gentleman in its true sense, being ex-
emplary in all of his habits, very dilligent
in his business transactions, last but not
least, a Christian. Miss Sims is a Chris-
tian lady, young, beautiful and accom-
plished, ' having had all the advantages
pertaining to a classical education and be-
ing of a kind disposition and very felic-
itous. We predict for'them a happy fu-
ture, for the One that they trust is able to
hide them, where no storms can ever be-
The bride wore a handsome dress ot
Heliotrope cashmere and seed pearls, the
entire front being covered with pearls,
with panier drapery across it, edged with
lillies of the valley’, the back of the skirt
falling into graceful folds from the waist
into a square train, white gloves, longeulle
veil, caught up with lillies of the valley,
making it enchanting and stylish. Miss
Dousie Sims, the effulgent and vivacious
bridesmaid, wore a beautiful costume ot
cream China silk, made walking length,
with plaited side panels and the front
trimmed in flounces of duchesse lace and
corsage bouquet of yellow and crimson
roses, suiting her style perfectly and very
attractive. Our young and sagacious
merchant C. A. Hancock officiated as
best man and, owing to the fact that his
costume was almost facsimile to that of
the groom, after the solemn benediction
he wa£ heard soliloquizing, to be or not
The sumptuous repast was all that
heart could desire and the happy recipi-
ents expressed themselves as being per-
fectly satisfied. It would be useless to try
and name or describe the numerous pres-
ents. There was one that came directly
under my observation, which I will men-
tion. It was a polished brass parlor lamp,
beautiful and complete, with decorated
porcelain vase and cut glass prisms, with
decorated shade, preseuted by C. A. Han-
cock; also one by the unsophisticated
John Hanna, which I failed to see, but I
was informed that it took the cake.
A reception followed the church cere-
monial at the home of the bride’s mother,
Mrs. F. R. Grayson, which was limited to
relatives and a few intimate friends. The
parlor was elaborately decorated with pots
of flowering plants, and Mr. Low and his
bride stood beneath a floral umbrella of
calla lillies and coraations. The brilli-
ancy of the luminary was superb and the
many quaint congratulations intermingled
with festivities presented a scene long to
be remembered by al! present. Rsx.
