Ob last Saturday, the hottest day
oi the summer, we counted thirty-
one horses that were tied in the sun.
We cannot expect any better of a
woman driver, but the men ought to
have better sense. Tie your horses
in the shade. How would you like
to stand out in the hot, broiling sun

The week previous to election* the
city was "lousy” with candidates.
They were so demonstrative that it
was an annoyance to meet them.
Not one now would offer you a hand

That is, let the mayor and city

It is a winning ticket.
Sunday was the warmest day of

The big blue jay is posing among

Thousands and thousands of

there ia any oil in Grayson county it
is on the Eastman place. The oil
naturally flows from the ground.

to his version the right kind have not

is developed by the new Denison

Mayor Acheson at the last meet-
ing of tbeabouncil hit the milk And-
ota under the belt. Every family in
Denison, especially thole who have
children, $f}ould read what the may-
or say# about^impure milk and its
effects. No doubt that hundreds of
children ot tender year have been
sent to their graves by so-called
milk. The mayor says "We are
not speaking of the poison which
may be put into the milk supply ot
Denison which may give rise to dis-
ease or may'cause death. We are
talking of poison actually demon-
strated to be in the milk supply of
the city, of which innocent people
are now partaking.” In Sis An-
tonio, Houston and other cities a
large number of so-called dairymen
were arrested for introducing a pois-
onous preparation into their milk to
keep it sweet in hot weather. The
mayor further said, "Milk is sold in
this city that is one-third water.
‘This is the most important article
of food entering into daily use, since
it forms the entire or almost entire
food of children at an age when they
are but little able to resist any tamp-
pering with their nourishment.
From its importance and from the
ease witn which it is adulterated,
great attention should be paid to it.’
From confessions made by a large
number of people engaged in the
selling of milk, the usual addition of
water it about one gallon to two oi
milk, so that the Dentson dealer
alluded\-to above it on the usual
plane of mixers. ' The- addition of
water to milk is injurious from the
standpoint of cheating the purchaser
in selling water for milk, hurtful to
the child's system, by loading it
with three pints where two wodld
do; but particularly harmthi ii
water with which it it diluted hap-
pens to be impure (as it generally
is), producing fevers and wasting
diseases that result in the death of
children.” . _
The democratic primaries held
last Saturday were a farce in the re-
spect that many republicans voted.
No questions were asked.
The Dallas News with its usual
enterprise put in an extra con-
taining the particulars of the nom-
ination of Parker for president. It
went off like hot cakes. The Her-

WEEK ENDING JULY 8, I876.
Saturday, July I, about 5 o’clock
in tbe afternoon, report reached the
city that the M. K. & T. bridge had
been carried away by high water.
Two spans went out, but one ot the
spans swung around and lodged on
the shore. Tbe other was carried
down the stream, struck the Colbert
wagon bridge, and it too went out,
leaving only one pier, that on the
Territory side. A son of Mr. Lyt-
tie, who had a grocery store near tbe
river, was on the Colbert bridge
when it went out. He stuck to the
bridge which floated to the shore
about twenty *.tiles below and he
got off, none the worse for his haz
ardou» journey.; The river Was
higher than ever known before.
