Fine Hone Captured-
Friday evening two negroe* came to
Deniioh riding fine horse*, which they
offered at a price much below their value.
This attracted the attention of officers
Wright and Mitchell, and they took pos-
session of one of the horses, but the other
wss gotten out of the way—probably sold
to 6ome one connected with the circus
Mr. Wright has since learned that the
animals belonged to B. F. Luce & Co., of
Monday morning, in attempting to ar-
rest the negroes, they ran across the rail-
road and struck lor the timber. Officer
Mitchell fired at them two or hree times,
but he does not think any of the shots

There was a report on the streets Sun-

Each of the directors of the Denison
branch of the A. M. L. A. S. of the U. S.,
have been furnished with a quantity of
cards of the company, with his business
card neatly printed on the back.
The local directors of the ‘‘Alliance
Mutual Life Assurance Society of the
United States,” (it’s a good company or
it could not survive such an extensive
name as that) have received their certifi-
cates, which are handsomely engraved.
Mr. Jas. H. Tebbs, business agent of
the St. Louis Times, is in the' city, and
will remain a few davs extending the cir-
culation of that excellent paper. We
have no doubt our citizens will make Mr.
Tebbs’ briel stay in Denison both pleas-
ant and profitable.
We have received of the Secretary, Jas.
F. Dumble, a copy of the premium list
for the Fifth Texas State Fair, to take
place at Houston, commencing May 19.
The indications are that this fair will be
largely attended by representatives of
other States, consequently it behooves
our citizens to go to work and make the
exhibition a credit to the State.
The Phrenological Journal.
For the faithful presentation of old and
new truths in a pleasant foim, we must
commend this veteran monthly. The
April number blossom s with an attractive
variety. We have in it a portrait and
sketch of Mr. Cleveland Abbe, of the
Signal Bureau, universally known as
“Probabilities;” an analytical paper on
the causes ofVice and Crime, with some
practical hints toward their remedy; there
is something humorous, in “My Inpress-
ions of Names, and Stolen Glimpses,”
and much that is agreeably instmetiing
in “Our Evergreen Trees;” anybody can
do it, and much that everybody should
read in “Was he Born So?” “Commer-
cial obstructions,” “Agricultural Hints,’
etc. Terms $3fa year; 30 cents a num-
ber. Address, S. R. Wells, New York.
Among the recent improvements in the
vicinity of the city, which should not be
overlooked, is the uairy of Mr. Anderson
—John Anderson, my Jo. John, or, as the
piccaninies call him, “Uncle Jack.”
One year ago there was no milk in
Denison except the condensed article.
Mr. Anderson established a dairy of a
dozen cows, in the edge of the woods just
back of Col. Taylor’s residence, having
seen that milk would pay. At first his
establishment occupied but two town lots;
but so successful has he been in manage-
ment, and so great has become the de-
mand for the lacteal fluid, that he has
opened out on a larger scale. He has
gone from twelve cows up to forty—from
a one-horse wagon to a two-horse wagon
—from one milk can to two cans and a
wagon lull of bottles, with glass corks—
from two tov.m lots to ten acres—and best
of ell, from a bachelor to a married man.
Mr. Anderson is now comfortably loca-
ted on the northeast side of town. He
has chosen a site for his dairy where his
cows will be sheltered from the storms.
His land is all under a new, staunch
fence. Part of his land is wooded, giving
shelter to the cattle during the heat of
the day ; but there is a boundless range
beyond, which will supply abundant
For the energy displayed, Mr. Ander-
son deserves credit. May success be
with him, and his morning bell wake us
for years yet to co ne.
Dan Ryan was up before the Recorder
Monday morning for lighting. He plead
in extenuation that a fellow held four aces
over him, but as the statutes make no
proyision for such a case, his Honor as-
sessed him $2 and costs, which he forked
over. The man with the four aces was
Long‘Kate Is again in trouble. She
was examined by the Recorder and asked
to contribute $7 90.
Monday we had the pleasure of form-
ing the acquaintance of Mr. W. O. Some,
of the firm of Bledsoe & Some, Nursery-
men, Sherma.i. Mr. Some has decided
to establish a large nursery near Denison,
and for this purpose has purchased sev-
enty acres of land of Dumas & Cook,
adjoining the city, and will prepare forty
acres this season, for forty thousand trees
to be set out next spring. Mr. Jessie
Cook has set apart thirty acres along side
of Mr. Some’s land for an orchard, and
will put out his trees just as soon as he'
can prepare the ground for the purpose.
Mr. Some says we have the best soil
for apples, pairs, peaches and grapes, in
Grayson county, and predicts that in a
few years the vicinity of Denison will be
noted for its fine fruit.
Mr. Some is so well pleased with our
growing city, he says he will move Imre,
probably this summer. It is just such
enterprising men as Mr. Some we love to
see take up their residence among us;
men who are ready to join hnnds with
our citizens in developing local resources.
Col. Shepherd, agent of the Town
Company in the early days of Denison,
has returned to the city, after an absence
of nearly a year. The Colonel arrived
Sunday evening, and informs us he in-

Now that Texas has direct rail commu-
