The actor who took the part
“Scraggs,” In the “My Partner” play
Thursday evening, was a good one, Iron-
ically speaking. He forgot that he was

Times are hard. There Is no doubt
about It. Nearly every man you meet Is

On Tuesday afternoon a white man
concluded to have some fun by teasing
and tantalising the crazy negro Frank.
The fun became unbearable to Frank in a
short time, when he made the fun-tnaker
take to his heels for safety, much to the
amusement of the crowd.
We believe the 30th of this month is
the day set apart as decoration day. Why
can’t Denison join In the procession, and
those ot our citisens who have loved ones
hurried at Oak wood or Fairvlew cemeter-
ies see that their last resting places hare
pot been forgotten !
A horse belonging to West Moss, a col-

From (he amount of mud and water
that gathers at the crossing of Main street
and Houston avenue every time there Is a
rainfall, It teems that there is something
wrong with the sewer drainage at that
point. Something shpuld be done to
prevent further collection of mud and
flhh there, obstructing passage during
Tuesday afternoon Mrs. Hull and Mis.
Harvey were out driving. When Mrs. Hull
alighted at her home in the southern part
of the city, leaving Mrs. Harvey seated
In the buggy. The horse became fright-
ened and turning around quickly, upset
the buggy, throwing Mrs. Harvey against
a wire fence, cutting her face badly and
knocking oet several teeth. She was taken
home and a physician called.
The attention ot the reader is again
directed to the advertisement of blooded
hogs, on third page, for sale by Geo. W.
Odneal. These ho^s are the Djurock
hogs imported, stock. They are not the
jersey Red. but a far better hog. It will
pay those interested in hog raising to se-
cure this breed of hogs. If not desired
to rake'them pure they cross well with
other breeds. They are large in size,
mature at an early age and fatten rapidly.

Deftiaeik Oottdfi Company.
Another long felt want of Denied)! Itta
been supplied at last- A cotton company
has been organised which will be known
as the Denison Cotton Company. It has
an authorized capital of $50,000, with a
paid up capital of $2u,ooo.
The officers for the ensuing year are as
follows: W. B. Munson, president; A.
H. Coffin, vice-president; E. T. Hatha-
way, secretary; F. M. Robinson, treasur-
er; C. H. Merry, grand manager.
The company proposes to erect at once
gin buildings with sufficient capacity tor
ginning too bales of cotton per day. This
It k deemed, will be sufficient to answer
the present demands. Cotton will be
bought by agents at the different railfffiad
stations and shipped by rail to Denison.
The cotton tor farmers will be ginned
on same terms as at other gins.
The company will not put in oil ma-
chinery the present season, but think that
in all probability they will by next a

prise success and prosperity.
It has been proven that the alarming
epidemic of typhoid fever, prevailing at
Plymouth, Pa., had its origin In a stream
of water which supplies the town with
water and that the dkease germs origi-
nated from a privy vault located forty feet
from the bank of the creek. This should
serve as a warning to those cities which
use well water. Too much care cannot be
taken against water used for domestic
purposes becoming contaminated with
impurities. There k special danger in
Denison owing to the fact that the town
k underlaid jvlth porous rock. Impuri-
ties are liable to be carried Mng distances
through seams in this underlying strata,
with a good system of water works sup-
plying pure water, we believe the health
of Denison would improve fifty per cent,
The Gazetteer is Indebted to Prof
Richard Mansill, of Rock Island, Ills.,
for a copy of his Weather Almanac and
Ephemeris for 1885; also, a copy of his
quarterly, entitled Mansilt’s Signal. The
almanac has been published annually
since 1876, and is the weather indicator
which the intelligent old farmers of
Illinois swear by. The price of the Al-
manac it 25 cents, and The Signal 75
cents a year. The professor has a novel
theory to account for meteorological
changes, which is clearly explained and
illustrated in his several publications. He
overlooked our heavy rainfall the middle
of the week, but predicts a storm period
the 23d and 24th.
A Model Girl-
Agnes Bush, whose father has leased
Mr. Choice’s farm, four miles west of
Denison, planted three acres of cotton
this spring, chopped it out and is cult!
vatlng it without any assistance. It
the cleanest and best looking cotton patch
in this vicinity. Mls*s Agnes is only fif-
teen years old—a modest girl, with
pleasant face, made more beautiful with
the bloom of perfect health, to be ob-
tained only by free exercise In the open
air. She takes a great deal of pride in
her growing crop, and proposes to pick
It all herself. If her cotton doesn’t bring
a good price and a premium besides,
then the Gazkttkkk doesn’t correctly
-size up Denison buyers.
“Notes and Queries,” No. 33, pub-
lished at Manchester, N. H., is on. our
desk. This is an exceedingly interesting
monthly and furnished at the low price of
$1 a year, or^ten cents a number. It is
devoted, as its name indicates, to ques-
tions and answers, hence affords an op-
portunity for exchanging knowledge.
Every page is instructive, and no one is so
wise but what he can learn something
from its perusal. The most interesting
book in our library is , “The Athenian
Oracles,” in four volumes, printed in
1704. These books were- made up from
a similar publication to Notes and Que-
ries, entitled “The Athenian Mercury.”
It is astonishing how much out* of the
way information can be collected by
means of such a periodical, and the only
wonder is that they are not better patron-

Tuesday evening as George 1’ulver was
turning the corner of Main street and
Fannin avenue, he was run over by IJick
McSwvane who was under the intluence
of ardent spirits and was riding at full
speed. His horse fell on Pulver and in
struggling to arise, struck him with his
feet. It was at first thought that his in-
juries would prove fatal but it turned out
to be a false alarm. McSwayne, with
Tom Turner, who was riding with him at
the time, were arrested by Marshal Cut-
ler. Turner was held for carrying con-
Messrs. Byrnes & Eddy, two young
men from Dallas, are convassing our bus-
iness men in the interest of a Review of
the manufacturing, mercantile and general
commercial enterprises of the city. The
statistics, etc., will make a handsome
book of about one hundred pages, and
they expect to issue several thousand
copies—aa many in fact as our citizens
will subscribe for. No doubt such a pub-
lication would prove advantageous to
Denison generally, it well circulated in
tfte east, and it k to be hoped the young
Been will be liberally encouraged.

Mr. Z. P. Stoneman, a successful fruit
grower, living in South Denison, left in
the Gazetteer office Friday, s.ime young
grapes and peaches. The grapes were the
Elvira and on one shoot there were six
bunches, something a little unusual. The
peaches were- of the Hale’s Early and
Alexander varieties. They are ready for
market about the 1st of June. The
branches left with us are very full. Mr.
Stoneman says that his peach trees are so
heavily loaded with fruit that he has been
obliged to thiesh part of it off to prevent
breakage. The Gazetteer is looking
forward to the ripening of the fruit with
interest for it knows that it will he re-
At the meeting of the Ladies’ Relief
Association held last Tuesday,for the pur-
pose of arranging for the charity festival,
one of the members proposed to elect
Joe Euper to prepare the lemonade. This
called one of the ladies to her feet to en-
quire if Joe was a good squeezer. The
Gazetteer reporter was too modest to
remain while the question was being dis-
cussed, but as Mr. Euper was unanimous-
ly elected it is presumed the investigation

sconded from Sherman with funds be-
longing to the Telephone company, re-
turned last week, lie says he lost some
money gambling, and went to Nebraska

idea of absconding. He will probahlv
resume work for the company and pay
his shortage out of his wages.

pital at Fort Worth, which was destroyed
by fire, three more institutions are to be
erected. Palestine has offered free ground
for this purpose, ‘San Antonio wants one,
Little Rock is spoken of, as is Hot
Springs, and the idea of building a joint
hospital at Texarkana is being advanced.
In any event three buildings tor this pur-
pose will be erected, but in what locality
has not yet been decided on.
The Mo. Pac. machine shops at this
place are now running a full force of
hands. The machinery is of a kind to do
all kinds of repairing and rebuilding. In
fact it would require but little more ma-
chinery to build cars from the beginning.
The dozen engines which have been
waiting for repairs, aie all, with the ex-
ception of one o'r two are now on the
road. Engine, No. 30 is being rebuilt, at

faithful and efficient work.

The Knights of Labor Assemblies of
Denison, M»s 3690 and 263S, numbering
over three hundred members, unanimous-
ly adopted the following resolutions in
reference to penitentiary and other con-
vict goods, especially cigars handled and
sold by the merchants ot Denison to the
great detriment of the toiling mass or
those who earn their bread by the sweat
of their brows.
Whereas, It has cqirie to our knowledge
that the merchants of Denison are hand-
ling penitentiary goods ot all kinds, and
convict and cooley cigars, it becomes our
duty as wage workers to take some auction
Resolved, That the wage workers of
the city of Denison do protest against the
handling and sale ot these goods, and re-
quest the dealers in cigars in Denison
that they will in future buy or handle no
cigars that do not bear the union trade
Resolved, That we ask all who earn
their living by the sweat of their brow,
that they will neither buy nor handled
cigars kept or sold bv a merchant who
does not deal in union made cigars.
Resolved, That in asking this favor at
the hands ot the dealers and the public
generally, we are in no way interfering
with a just and legitimate business by
endeaving to advance the cause of "the
laboring classes throughout the land.

The street and alley committee will
have to remove the sewer that crosses

pedestrians. This sewer was put in, by
the old council. The new council has
already taken out and enlarged the sewer
at the postoffice. They have constructed
two or three others which give perfect
satisfaction. Mr. Waltz is chairman of

upon all work done under his supervision
