T>tf launch .it the Club Kttom.
One of the pleasantest incidents of the
•jtti was the lunch served up at the social
■club loom by the proprietor, Mr. F. C. J.
Lebermann. There were fully fitly
invited guest! present, and the long table
was supplied with not only the very best
tliatour market affords, such as sand-
wiches, salads, etc, but imported delica-
cies were provided that would tempt the
palates of an epicure. After the feast
followed wine of different kinds, and a
half hour was spent in drinking toasts,
when wit and mirth flowed freely around
the festal board. Among the distinguish-
ed guests from abroad we noticed Senator
Maxey, fudge Hare, of Sherman, and
Frank Colbert, of the N ition.
The club room, which is large and
pleasant, had been handsomely decorated

Tlie Game of liuse Ball.
Qnly two companies played Wednesday
for the purse of $50—the Dallas nine and
the Denison nine. The Dallas bovs had
two of the crack players of Fort Worth
on their nine. The game resulted m a
victory for the Dallas nine, the score
standing 20 to 18. It was charged
on the ground that the umpire, Mr,
Hogan, of Dallas, made several bad
rulings which gave the Dallas nine the
game. Before the game closed two of
the Denison nine withdrew on account ol
the rulings. We see by the Dallas Her-
ald that Mr. ling.in came as a substitute.
We know nothing as to the correctness
of the charges against Hr. Hogan, but
we certainly regret exceedingly that any-
thing occurred to mar the pleasures ol

refreshing br,ezes. At u o’clock the
southern train arrived with five coaches
loaded down with visftors from Sherman,
Howe, McKinney, Bonham, Dallas and
other points. At 12 o’clock a low esti-
mate placed the number of persons in
Forest Park at three thousand, and it is
exceedingly gratifying to us to be able to
say that, with the exception of the un-
p.easant affair at the base ball
grounds, nothing the entire day occurred
to mar the festivities. The programme
was so admirably arranged, and the com-
mittees worked so faithfully, that every-
thing moved along smoothTy and to the
satisfaction of all. It was, indeed, a
glorious Fourth for Cenison, for it has
been the means of bringing our citizens
in contact with people from every section,
and hencefourth we will know each other
better and feel as though we are indeed
citizens of one common country with
common interests, which will be all the
better subserved by closer fraternal alli-
ance. The following is a brief report of
the leading features of the day :
At 8 o'clock the pupils of the Denison
Public School assembled at the school
building, where they were joined by the
several local societies, officers of the city,
citizens, etc., and formed in procession.
At 9 o’clock the column took up the line
of march down Gandy street in the fol-
lowing order: Denison Cornet Band;
pupils of public school on foot, headed
by Prof, Somerville; temperance socie-
ties; members of Hook and Ladder Com-
pany in uniform, with truck handsomely
decorated with evergreens and Hags; city
and county officials; carriages; citizens on
foot. Following the temperance societies
was a wagon, on which had been erected
a platform with seats rising in the form
of a pyramid, on which were seated
thirty-eight little boys and girls, members
of the public school, neatly attired and
bearing llags. The wagon was decorated
very prettily with evergreens, banners
a lid streamers. At the summit of the
pyramid floated the Lone Star of Texas.
The decoration was done under the per-
sonal supervision of Miss Cornell, one of
the teachers. O11 the truck, surrounded
by evergreens and flags, were the Misses
Cora Lingo and Nettie Bennett, repre-
senting goddesses of liberty Joseph
Cottraux, a lad often, son of our Jo.,
was also with the truck dressed in lull
uniform of the company. The procession
moved down Gandy street to Houston
avenue, up Houston avenue to Main
street, up JEMain street and Brunet ave-
nue to Forest Park, where the procession
Atniis Gen. Maxey arri\ed by the
southern train, and proceeding directly
to the park, was escorted to the speakeis
stand, where he was introduced by Mayor
Grubbs as orator of the day. He was
listened to with the closest attention dv
the immense assembly for nearly one
hour, and was frequently applauded with
enthusiasm. The address was historical
in its character, through which run a
vein of lofty patriotism. He paid a
glowing tribute to our great State, sec-
ond to none in the Union. General
Maxey was followed by Judge Hare, of
Sherman, in a few happy remarks, and
Major Woods, of Denison, whose sallies
of wit were heartily applauded.
Dinner was now announced, and soon
the long tables, spread beneath the noble
old forest trees, laden with provisions,
were lined with the hungry multitude.
Not less than two thousand men, women
and children were fed at these tables
alone, and yet there was enough and to
spare. If any went away hungry it was
there own fault, for the supply was ample.
Besides the public tables a large number
of persons from city and country partook
of basket dinners under the trees.
THE BABY SHOW.
At 3 o’block it was announced from the
speaker’s stand that the committee was
prepared to announce the result of the
baby show. Nine girls and thirteer
boys were “entered” for prizes. The
gold necklace was clasped aiound the
chubby neck of Miss Jennie Hanna, aged
it months, daughther of Councilman
Sam Hanna, while Bddie Allen, also aged
11 months, son of Councilman Ed. Al-
len, Has trundled oft in the baby wagon,
crowing in high glee. The committee
declared theft inability to decide between
Eddie Allen and Johnny Cole, a hand-
some boy of 4! months, and an umpire
was called in, who Cast Ins vote for Ed-
die Allen. A' special premium, made up
by the committee, was bestowed upon
Miss Maggie Kennedy, a beautiful girl
one year of age. The mother did not
arrive in time to “enter” her “preciou
for the prize, hut it was the general ex-
pression that* the baby was ’one of the
prettiest on the stand.
The free plattorm for dancing was oc-
cupied most of the time during the day.
The Denison band furnished the music,
assisted b) Prof. Worner on the piano.
There was aUo a variety of private
amusements, such as flying horses, target
Barrels of ice water were distributed
around the park under the trees, that no
one might suffer from thirst, while there
were a number of booths where refresh-
ments of different kinds were served at

on the platform was indulged in until
Much credit is due to Mr. James Leon-
ard, the marshal of the day, and also to
his able assistants, for the systamatic
manner with which the details of the pro-
gramme lor the day were carried out,

The committee on babies showed the
white feather when it came to announc-
ing the result. Though naturally brave
men, they quailed before those 22
earnest and confident mothers, and none
of them could be persuaded to declare the
result that was to shatter the fond hopes
of twenty of them. They shirked, the
responsibility by leaving the umpire Mr.
Sibley, to do this duty, and as he stam-
mered out the names of the successful
competitors report has it that the commit-
tee were beating a hasty retreat down the
back stairs. *

A Superb Blow! Depurent.
Upon the action of the kidneys, blad-
der and bowels depends the deouration of
the blood. It is by promoting the activity
of these organs that Hostetler’s Stomach
Bitters ensures purity to the circulation.
In its passage through the kidneys, im-
purities which beget rheumatism, gout,
and gravel are strained from tne blood,
but when those small but all important
organs grow inactive, these impurities of
course remain, and inevitably produce
the diseases mentioned. Hostetter’s
Bitters rouse Ihe kidneys to renewed ac-
tivity, bv which means the bl.od is depu-
rated. it likewise purifies the blood when
contaminated with bile by promoting a
gentle but effectual action of the bowels,
and has the further effect of regulating
the action of the liver, th is counteract
ing a tendency to biliousness. Dyspep-
sia, malarial fevers and urinary com-
plaints are aiso conquered by it.

est of the pure are the liquors and wines

How rarely we meet a person of whom

manifest that are attributed to other
causes, and yet when this is corrected all
disappear. An unsurpassed agent for
