Among her numerous other claims
to prominence, Denison is fast be-
coming distinguished as the city of
educated hogs. We speak literally^
and intend no reflection on our wor-
thy inhabitants. The porkers that
infest our streets for natural acute-
ness and acquired accomplishments
cannot be beat anywhere. The
green grocers declare the ordinary
Denison hog to be the most com-
plete dead-beat out, and is not the
dead-beat a sure product of the
highest civilization ? The numerous
shifts resorted to byT these interesting
brutes to fill their bellies at other
people’s expense, show them to pos-
sess the faculties of imitation and in-
vention in a very considerable de-
gree. If they keep on improving
they will be able to sign the next

Some time since Benjamin Sted*
man son of Z. Stedman, in charge
of the water tank at the Blue, in the
Nation, killed an Indian. He was
at rested as also was his brother Har-
vey as an accomplice. Last week
the brothers were taken to Tishomin-
go for trial. The Judge continued
the case for six months. Saturday
he lodged the two men in his own
house, placing a strong guard over
them. Sunday night a mob of Indi-
ans surrounded the house, overpow-
ered the guard, broke in and secured
the prisoners. They took them out-
side a short distance and shot them.
The [udge|uotified the father of the
boys Monday moping and Mr. Sttd
man came to Denison in the even-
ing and got coflins at Mr. Nevins’
store in which to bury his sons, and
another son went up to Tishomingo
to take charge of the bodies.
Benjamin was twenty-four years
old and Harvey thirty. The latter
leaves a wife and two children.
Benjamin was not married.
There was a good deal of cotton
on our streets Monday, and it
brought the top prices.
The old phrase “nip and tuck”
must be a corruption of nip and
Turk—at least that’s the way they
are having it now.
Southern, of Sherman, was in the
city Monday. He says Singer sew-
ing machines were never in such
demand as now.
More new goods at Brown’s book
store; new line of zephyrs, white
and black and other colors, split
wax for flowers, tube paints, brushes,

teries, large family billies, etc., etc.
E. B. Sims, grocer, returned from
St. Louis Sunday. The new stock,
which he purchased while absent,
lias already commenced to arrive.
Mr. II. Tone has received orders
to go to work at once and make out

Abe Cohn was before his honor,
acting mayor Crooks, this morning,
charged with committing nuisance
by allowing fruits and vegetables to
rot in trout of Ins establishment on
North Travis. Abe had a lawyer
and the lawyer raised many technic-

nothing. Bio. Crooks said he was
not much lawyer, but he had a devil

Saturday night a darkey named
Smith, about six weeks from Hunts-
ville, where he had served a term for
stealing hogs, and win had worked
for Dr. Salisbury, stole a saddle
from the Doctor, which he loaned
to a friend.
Charley Salisbury, learning where
Smith lived, went to his house Mon-
day morning, captured him and
started back with him to town. On
the road the negro broke and ran.
Salisbury says he shot at him sever-
al times and hit him in the shoulder,
but the boy made good his escape.

Professor Tice stated in August
that possibly the south Atlantic or

The norther that blew up Monday
morning is an indication of a storm
ham owed him. As he was chair-
man of the school committee, and
the money passed through his hands,
he just paid himself. The case was

On motion of Peck the ordinance
relating to hogs was laid over until
next regular meeting.
A resolution was passed authoriz-
ing the mayor to call a meeting of
the council upon the application of
any needy person for aid.

solved that no orders on the treasur-

It was moved that the tax rolls of

the city attorney immediately for
collection, also the matter of settle-
ment with Mr. Hoi ford and the bond

The following appropriations
were then made: $48 for old claim
of gas ; $12 75 to Mr. Nelms for at-
tending a sick pauper ; $9 85 toDick
Coffey for hauling; $i 50 to Mr.

Councilman Hughes gave Mayor
Grubbs and City Assessor and Col-
lector Coffin, and the City Clerk, a
good scoring Monday flight at the
Council meeting. It seems Mayor
Grubbs and the City Clerk gave Mrs.
Ingerton a warrant for fifty dollars
as part payment for her services a-
teacher. Mrs. Ingerton went in
search of the Treasuier O’Maley, to
get the warrant cashed, but could
not find him. She then took it to
Coffin, who discounted the warrant
$2 50, and paid her the money.
Coffin afterwards presented the war-
rant to the Treasurer and got his

utes of the Council that no city officer
shall pay out money for any purpose

Councilman Hughes is certainly
right in insisting that the provisions
of the resolution He strictly carried
out. Mayor Grubbs and the City
Clerk had no authority whatever to
draw the warrant. Mr. Hughes also
sensured Mr.O’Maley, but we cannot
see as he is to be blamed. If the
warrant was properly signed and
countersigned, and bore on its face
the seal of the city, we cannot see
how he could refuse to honor it if the
funds provided for the purpose were
iii the treasury.
