The Sherman people are disappointed
because the town clock doesn't strike
loud enough to be heard at the depot,
jtnei because the dial is so small that it is
hard to tell the time of day across the

the way the Register talked about a
month ago, we were really alarmed over
Pere in Denison, that its ponderous ham-
mer would disturb our slumbers, until
we had become familiar with the noise.

Ctnlry for Mr. G. Hopper.
The following letter from our fellow
townsman, Mr. H. K. Needham, will be
read with much interest by our farmers.
We were in Southwest Texas in 1867-8
and our observation has lead to the same
conclusion a* rived a* by Mr. Neednam,
who has devoted a good deal of attention
to the subject. We apprehend no seri-
ous damage from the grasshoppers now
hatching by millions in different sections
of our State, further than may be experi-
enced by gardeners, and they can keep
them at a safe distance from early vege-
tation by a little industry :
Denison, Tex., March 23, i8“7-
Wm. Peck, Esq., Peck’s Hotel, Grand Junction,
Dear Sir : In reply to your favor of
the 14U1 inst., enquiring for information
concerning grasshoppers in Texas, I will
give you the benefit 01 my obsei vations,
and that of the oldest inhabitants: In
the fail of 1867 Texas was invaded by
vast armies ot grasshoppers; so numerous
were they that in places tlie ground was
literally obscured by the little pests, and
as they deposited their eggs in large
quantities grave fears were entertained
as to the piobable effect upon the suc-
ceeding crops, and by many a famine
was predicted, but when, bv the effect of
our early spring, and semi-tropical cli-
mate, the eggs were hatched in February
and March ot 1868, it was discovered that
Texas was not a success as a grasshopper
country, as the greater number ot tlie
young hoppers came to a premature
death, on account of our spring ruins
and other causes, and such as were lett
to arrive at maturity finding that Texas
was an unhealthy country tor them, took
their departure for parts unknown., with-
out doing any seiious damage to crops,
except in the extreme western and south-
western portions of the State.
Since 1S68 there have been but few
hoppers ir. any part ot the State, except
an occasional coionv from Kansas or
Co 01 ado, that woulo reach Texas too
late in the season to do any damage, and
although such colonies sometimes depos-
it their eggs, the old Texan takes no
alarm, for it is well known by tlie observ-
ant that the native grasshoppers hatch
so early in the season that owing to tlie
conditions here existing, they either come
to a premature death or leave before the
crops are far enough advanced to suffer
by their ravages.
Last fall was the first since 1S67 that
Texas has been invaded bvany consider-
able number of foreign grasshoppers,
and this spring, like that of iS58, the
young have made their appearance in
gr, at numbers, yet there are not nearly
so many now, as there were at that time,
and reports from several counties show
the morta ity to be so great already
among the young that no feats aie enter-
tained but that they will, as ever in the
past, either die off' or leave before tlie
crops are far enough advanced to be se
riouslv damaged by them. The equinoc-
tial storm is upon us now, and will
doubtless entirely free us of the seemingly
11. K. Needham.
Texas was visited by the grasshopper
plague in 1858. As early as tiie middle
of January they commenced hatching out
in different sections. By the middle of
March they were generally reported as
moving southward, and by the middle of
May every vestage of them had disap
peared. We are forced to admit that the
grasshoppers did a good deal ot damage
that year, and farmers in their “line of
march” were compelled to replant.
Denison, March 23, 1S77.
Editor Denis m News:
A veiy important question is to be de-
cided at the ballot box to-iJav. 1* is
whether ojr tree public sihoois shall be
sustained and made a permanent institu-
tion. or not. It can hardly be doubted
that our citizens will decnie this question
in a most emphatic manner, in tavor of
fiee schools. Tne city ot Denison is the
banner city ol the St ite as regards pub
lie school enterprise, and it only re-
mains for our people to show by their
conduct to-day that they are determined
to letain this honor. We have the best
school building in Texas and our school
is in keeping with the building, it is, by
far, tlie Dost school ot the class in the
State, being thoroughly gr«ded arid un-
der the very best regulations.
1 here are 470 pupils at present receiving
instruction in our city public schools, at j
an expense of less than tjjqco a month to !
tlie city. The expense of the last two-
months of this session is to be paid by
I).. bears, general agent of the Peabody
Funds, so that the ten months’ session
will cost the city less than $400. The
average cost of tuition per scholar will
not, therefore, be moie than $10 This
is extremely low—a dollar a month for
each pupil. The average cost per pupil
for the ten months’ session in St. Louis,
lor 1875, was §21 60. while in Boston and
some other cities and towns it was con-
sideiably higher. We have a cheap
school, and at the same time a good one.
Let us by ail means sustain it.

The persistent storm of yesterday
though it marred the promised success
of the occasion, could not prevent the
attendance last night of a very respecta-
ble audience foi the Tayleure-Chanfrau
Combination. The enjoyment of the
performance richly repaid the discomfort
attending its attainment. Mrs. Henriet-
ta Chanfrau, who received a very warm
greeting, proved herself an artiste of the
highest ability, and fully confirmed the
brilliant distinctions with which the cities
of New York and Boston have crowned,her.
The supporting company is one of splen-
did power and completeness, and realized

the evening, when Boncicoull’s famous
fashionable comedy, “London Assur-
ance,” will be produced.

Debility, whether it be inherent, or
caused by overtaxed strength, or protract-
ed illness, has a most depressing influence
upon the.mind, breeding an abject melan-
choly nearly akin to despair, and enforc-
ing the abandonment of cherished pro-
jects and high hopes. Happily, the en-
feebled system, even in extreme cases, is
susceptible of invigoration. It is proved
by incontrovertible evidence that Hostet-
ter’s Stomach Bitters is an unfailing
strengthener foi the weak, and that 111 ad-
dition to vitalizing the physicalorgan-

eclipse anything of the kind ever wit-

should be run for the accommodation of
Denison, Sherman, and other points
along tlie road, for we are confident large
numbers from North Texas will wish to
