A gentleman from Kansas has leased or
purchased 100 acres of land across the
river, at Caddo, and proposes to put the

He is now completing arrangements with

than they can he procured from any other
source, and we have no doubt he will make
a great financial success of the experi-
Mr. A. Wasson, dealer in hides, peltries
and wool, Sherman, advertises this week.

reputation for promptness and reliability,
with all husinesss men and others who
ever dealt with him. Mr. Wasson is con-
nected with the old established house of
II. I). Wasson, St. Louis. We know of
no man we would sooner consign goods
to than Mr. A. Wasson.
There was a good attendance of ladies
and gentleman at the sociable Tuesday
evening, and a couple of hours passed off
very pleasantly in social chat. Just before
the party broke up Rev. Mr. Milligan
called the company to order, when a reso-
lution was offered that an oyster supper
be served at the Chapel next Tuesday eve-
ning. It was adopted unanimously, of
course, and a committee of five ladies and
five gentlemen appointed to prepare the
feast. We predict a full house and a good
time at the next reunion.
Mr. John Bruno, a compositor in the
Journal office, had been complaining for
several days of a “ rising” upon the back
of his hand. Supposing it was a boil lie
applied a slice of raw pork to “ bring
it to a head.” Saturday on removing the
pork he discovered a piece of wire working
from the soer. On extracting it it proved
to be a small piece of steel, sharp at one
end, and somewhat resembling a fine
needle. It is crooked, and if straightened
would be about one inch in length. The
mystery is how it got there, as he has no
recollection of sticking a wire or needle in

The Aldine, while issued with all the
regularity, has none of the temporary or
timely interest characteristic of ordinary
periodicals. It has an elegant miscellany
of pure, light and graceful literature; and
a collection of pictures, the rarest speci-
mens of artistic skill, iq black and white.
Although each succeeding number affords
a fresh pleasure to its friends, the real
value and beauty of The Aldine will be
most appreciat'd a ft ter it has been bound
up at the close of the year. While other
publications may claim superior cheap-
ness. as compared with rivals of a similar
class, The Aladine is a unique and origi-
nal conception—alone and unapproached

or character. The possessor of a com-

of beds for travelers. It is a good hotel.
It is worthy of record that the past fall

of blooded cattle, hogs, etc., brought to

We had the pleasure last Monday, of
meeting Mr. Frank Kenyon, recently edi-
tor of the Salt Lake (Utah) /iVr /ctc. The
Iteviciv is noted all over the country for
the vigorous war it waged against poli-
gatny in the very camp of the enemy. Mr.

By an oversight we have neglected to
call the attention of oar readers to the ad-
vertisement in another column of Hughes’
Riding Plow, and we regret it the more
because we believe it a most useful inven-

rare mechanical abilities, and a man whose

been sold all over the country. We be-
lieve that in the Riding Plow our Texas
planters will see the very article they need
and have been long wishing for. While it
will prove an economical Investment, it at
the same time does away with much hard
labor; and as this machine can he attached

Though houses are to be seen
in process of erection all over the
city, the demand is still greatly in
excess of the supply. Capitalists
can find no safer and more profitable
investment than to' put money in
buildings of this character. Not a
week passes that men are not in
Denison anxious to rent. This coup-
led with the fact that otir merchants,
mechanics and others are doing a
thriving business, is most encourag-

Notwithstanding the increase in the
price of subscription last Fall, when The
Aldine assumed its present noble propor-
tions and representative character, the
edition was more than doubled duriri; the
past year; proving that the American
public appreciate, and will support a sin-
cere effort in the cause of Art. The pub-
lishers. anxious to justify the ready confi-
dence thus demonstrated, have exerted to
to the utmost to develop and improve the
work; and the plans for the coming year,
as unfolded by the monthly issues, will as-
tonish and delight even the most sanguine
friends of The Aldine.
The publishers are authorized to an-
nounce designs from many of th* most
eminent artists of America.
In addition The Aldine will produce
examples of the best foreign masters, se-
lected with a view to the highest artistic
success, and greatest general interest;
avoiding such .as have become familiar,
through photographs or copies of any kind.
The quarterly tinted plates,for 1873. will
reproduce examples of John S. Davis’ in-
imitable child sketches appropriate to the
four seasons. These plates appearing in
the issues for January, April, July and Oc-
tober, would be alone worth the price of a
PREMIUM CHROMOS FOR 1873.
Every subscriber to The Aldine, who
pays in advance for the year 1873, will re-
ceive without additional charge a pair of
beautiful oil chromos, afters J. J. Hill, the
eminent English painter. The pictures,
entitled “The \ ilhtge Belle,” and *Cross-
ing the Moor," are 14x20 inches—are print-
ed from 25 different plates requiring 25
impressions and tints to perfect each pic-
ture. The same chromos are sold for $30
per pair in the art stores. As it is the de-
termination of its conductors to keep The
Aldine out of the reach of competition in
every department the chromos, will be
found correspondingly ahead of any that
can be offered by other periodicals. Every
subscriber will receive a certificate, over
the signature of the publishers, guaran-
teeing that the chromos delivered shall be
equal to the samples furnished the agents,
or the money will he refundeef. The dis-
tribution of pictures of this grade,
free to the subscribers of a live dollar peri-
odical, will mark an epoch in the history
of Art; and, considering the unprecedent-
ed cheapness of the price for The Aldine
itself, the marvel falls little short of a mir-
acle, even to those best acquainted with
the achievements of inventive genius and
improved mechanical appliances. (For
illustrations of these chromos, tee No*

MANUFACTURED AT NOS. 708 AN1>
710 NORTH SECOND ST.,
By DOWDALL & HUGHES,
Successors lo the Mexico M/ng. Co.
: This Plow, within the last two years,
has established a reputation unequuled in
the history of Plows within the Counties of
Audrian, Muruoe, Montgomery and Ralls,,
and will, in the future, lie manufactured
and sold to the Farmer» of the West with
a full confidence of meeting the long-felt
need of a Uior(*ugh practical Riding Plow,
and one that will enable the Farmer to
accomplish nearly double the work of the
ordinary Plow with the same team; with
it an old man, a boy or a cripple can da
as much as the strongest person.
NOT A GANG PLOW!
This is not what is termed a Gang
Plow, but is simply a large Plow with
riding attachment, and being so construc-
ted that all friction is entirely Believed
from the bottom anti* land-side, thereby
saving nearly one-half of the power re-
quired to draw the common plow. The.
Plow is outside of the wheels. Both wheels
run on the unplowed ground. The Plow
is entirely suspended by a chain attached
to a spring It turns corners without rais-
ing out of the ground. For a two horse
mochine we use a sixteen inch plow*, which
runs as light at the same depth as a ten
twelve inch common plow. Where
three horses are use exclusively, we advise
the use of an eighteen inch plow which
will do good work and turn an average
furrow of twenty inches, and plow from
four to five acres per day.
OUR RIDING ATTACHMENT.
To meet the demand of mun v Fanner*
who already have a supply of good Plow*,
we furnish them the Riding attachment,
to which they can, in a few minutes, at-
tach any common Plow, and we guaran-
tee them to plow at least one acre more
per day and ride than they can with the
same plow and team and walk. The at
tachment is furnished at $55 00, and war-
ranted. Don't fail to investigate this mat-
DIRECTIONS FOR USING
The directions for setting up, starting
and using this Plow, with both two and
three horses, are printed and furnished
w ith each Plow, so that any one who cai>
read and has any brains can never fail to
use it w ithout the least trouble.
OUR TWO AND THREEJHORSE
I* one of the novelties of the age. With
it three horses abreast are made to pull
equal without the usual annoyance of
Long Double-Trees, Links, Lap Rings,
Clevises, &c. It is perfectly adapted to
the common plow, and can be changed
for two horses in one minute’s time, being
a complete combination of both, and as
light as common double-tree. The atten
tion of Dealers is particularly called to
this impliment, as the use of three horses
for plow ing is becoming extensive. We
supplv the trade by the dozen, on favor-
able terms. Retail Price. $5 00. Every
farmer wants it to use on his common
This Plow is warranted to work weli,
with either two or three horses, and plow
from three to five acres per day and carry
the driver, as easily as the same team can
plow from two to three acres per day with

should it fail to do so, return the Plow and
get vour money. Every Plow sold w ithin
the last year was sold under this warranty
and not one has been returned.
