Blind Tom Coming.
We received a call Monday morning
from Mr. Geo. B. Hudson, traveling
agent for Blind Tom. This musical
prodegy, who has astonished both hemis-
pheres by his marvelous powers, will give
his first concert in this city next '1 uesdav,
the 1st proximo. It is useless for us to
dilate upon his wonderful gilts, for who
is there in this community who has not
heard of Blind Tom, the untutored negro,
whose very soul overflows with melody?

ciples are retained unchanged by chemi-
cal action, highly concentrated, requiring
less to flavor, that there is no deception
in bottles as they hold one-half more than
those sold for the same size. That they

expressed themselves as confident that it
would be decided to build a fine brick
building for school purposes, if suitable
lots could he secured. One of them leaves
for France in a few days to obtain quite a
sum of money belonging to them, which
will be employed in erecting the building
should they decide to locate in Denison.
If this proposition is carried out the build-
ing will he a fine structure, and the school
second to none in the state, and it will be
put in operation by the Sisters them-

citizens. We certainly hope this enter-

A Word to the WI»«.
If the owners of Skiddy street property
do not make an earnest effort, and that
very soon, to get rid of the prostitutes that
infest that locality, and turn legitimate
business in that direction, they are going
to see trade go on to Woodard street; this
accomplished Skiddy street lots cannot
be sold for enough to liquidate a year’s
taxes. Already a movement is on foot by
parties directly interested on Woodard
street, to secure the erection thereon of
two or three fine brii k business houses:
there is also talk of putting up a fine ho-
tel. As business becomes crowded on
Main street, and the priee of lots goes up,
those having money to invest in buildings
will go onto the adjoining streets where
property can he secured at* much lower
figures. The business of Denison has so
far shown a tendency to work south, along
Austin avenue, and would, in time reach
Skiddy street, were it not for the disrepu-
table character it sustains. If property
holders have so little regard for the good
of the community as to rent houses in the
very heart of the city to prostitutes, it
would still seem as though their pecunia-
ry interests would prevail with them to
pursue a different course.

Alarm ot Fire.
About five o’clock Monday evening the
Chinese laundry, on Main street, just east
of Stegmiller’s grocery store, took fire in
the garret from the stove pipe. Hap-Sing,
the proprietor, was so badly scared when
he saw the smoke issuing from the cloth
ceiling over head that he could scarcely
speak, but he managed to get outside and
articulate fire, which brought assistance,
and a few buckets of water extinguished
the flames. Poor Hap-Sing was terribly
frightened. I le sat down on the floor and
cast up his ('inner of rice as easily as

We are glad to learn that Mr. Linley
contemplates returning with his family

By a card in another column it will be
seen that Wm. Hughes has placed him-
self squarely before the citizens of Deni-
son as a candidate for Mayor, at the en-
suing election. We admire the bold
policy of Mr. Hughes; he war.ts the office
and isn’t afraid to say so. Let the other
candidates come forward without further
delay, so that the public may know who
are willing to serve them, and then our
citizens wi’l be able to canvass their vari-
ous claims and qualifications understand-
ingly, and come to some conclusion.
Mr. Hughes is one of our oldest citi-
zens, and has shown himsclt, on every
occasion, a public spirited gentleman.
He is also a large property holder, and
Denison is his home, lie is certainly as
much interested as any ol us in an eco-
nomical and wise administration of the ;
city government. The selection of a
man to preside over the destitutes of t,ur 1
city, for the next two years, ijs, however,
a very important matter, and sljoQd be
canvased carefully and impartial!- bv
our citizens. This is why we t»
know who are to he brought forward.
