The following in a sample of tl*vors
daily asked of us by men from all parts of
the c mntry. It was written on a postal
card, and consequently contained no
stamps to cover postage, to say nothing
about cost of paper:
Richmond, Ind, Sept. 24. ’75.
My Dear Sir : Please send me a lew
copies of your paper as samples, and for
information in regard to your.city, and
any information as to emigration and
manufacturing, agricultural machines in
♦ our city, and any other information you
mav hav- to give a stranger who contem-
pla'es going to Texas.
1 am yonrd, v-ry respectfully,
11. Ogb rn.
We would suggest to all parties who are
so anxious to secure information without
cost, that they write to th,e merchants of
Denison for samples of the wares tli -v
keep on hand; to the grocers for a speci-
men of their best tea, codec, sugar, soap,
soda, etc.; tftthe shoe dealer for a sample
pair ot shoes; to the tailor for a suit of
clothes; to the milliner for a bonnet; To
the saddler for a saddle; and to the hotel
keeper for a sample of his hash; as they
contemplate coining to Texas, and want
to know what they may expect to find
in the several lines when they get here.
It would be just as legitimate as asking
the publisher of a paper to send a “few
copies” of his paper gratuitously and pay
the postage himself. The paper costs
money, and if it is worth anything to the
man who contemplates migrating, it is
no more than right that a paper equiva-
lent should be sent for it.

^ Fort Sill, Oct. 6, p. m.
A party of Comanches, numbering
about twelve braves, and as many squaws,
with Little Crow at their head, came in
to this post about 11 :^o a. 111. to-day, and
delivered themselves up, with forty-five
ponies and four mules.
These Indians have never been in be*
' fore, with the exception of Little Crow,
who escaped from here alfout a year ago.
A party of them still remain out.
They came from the Staked Plains,
here troops have been scouting for the
last two years.
All of the braves are confined in the
guard house at present.

The Drummer Nuimmce.
The Ma-shal Herald, in referring to the
recent attempt made by Denison mer-
chants to do away with the employment
of “drummers,” makes the following
truthful comments: ,
It has been a wonder to us that this in-
cubus on trade has not been abolished
long ago. Some houses, it is said, em-
ploy as man) as twenty drummers. Say
each drummer gets five dollars a day. or
$150 per month. To this add five dollars
a day for expenses, aggregating a cost
for each solicitor of $300 per month, and
loi the twenty employed per month of
$6,000. Thev are out at least six months
in the year costing the firm not less than
$36,000. Now the question arises, who
foots tills large bill? Does it come out of
the legitimate earnings of the wholesale
merchant at St. Louis, New York or New
Orleans, or is it added to tiie price of
goods to he paid by our home merchants,
and to he finally paid by our home con

The Cresset of Tuesday evening made a | miners? The drumming business is cer-
a rediculous blunder in stating that
Charley had been arrested for violating
the intercourse law. He is a most exem-
plary young man, well known to nearly
every business man in town, all of whom
will vouch for him as a lawabiding citi.
/on. The Cresset corrects the mistake in
its Wednesday’s issue.
Richard Collins and family* of Deco-
ra’s Prairie, started lor Collinsville, Tex-
as, on Tuesday, where thev intend mak-
ing their home. Mr. Collins has been a
citizen of Decora’s Prairie for over 22
years. Bv honesty, economy and indus-
try. he has acquired a competence that
will keep him as long as he lives, llei*
a staunch citizen, and one we can ills af-
ford to losy. Mav health and happiness
accompany him in their new home.—

house and improving his new home.
tainly a nuisance, but that's the smallest
part of it. It is the cost of the nuisance
that is distressing.
The means resorted to bv drummers in
this city is positively disgraceful. Pull-
ing men around on the street is no way
to secure either their confidence or their
trade; but it is a most excellent plan for
driving custom elsewhere, and the sooner
our business men find this out the better
for Denison. When a fanner comes to
town to dispose of his products, or to pur-
chase his supplies, lie does not exptet to
he besieged by a dozen men like so many
unprincipled hotel runners at a railroad
station, lie is supposed to know his own
business, and such proceedings are no
less than instills, which we would be per-
fectly justifiable in resenting.

Conductor Alex. Beecher, ot the St.

is a cripple for life, if indeed he survives
his injuries. It happened in this way :
Yesterday evening about 7 o'clock,
while engaged in switching his train, at
Florence, Montgomery county, his foot
was caught in some unexplained wav,
and a stock car ran over one leg, just be-
low the knee, mangling it in such a shock-
ing manner as to necessitate amputatin' .
lie was promptly sent to St. Louis on a
special train, where he was taken to St.
Luke’s Hospital and his leg taken off,
above the knee, by that skillful surgeon,
