Our old partner in former .times Col.
John D. Logan under the irm name of
Messrs. J. D. Logan & Co. has started a
now daily journal in Austin called the
Austin .Evening Nows. It is a budl aud
modest papor but it bids fair to bo spipv
and useful iu its local information. Its .
typographical appearanco improves with
each progressive issuo. In looking over
the field we would naturally conclude
that Austin could hardly bestow a good
support upon three daily nowbpapois
but if sho can so much moroto the crciL
it of her live and liberal citizens. If timo
shall prove that sho cannot sustain them
why then her peoplo can and Avill decide
which is the best of tho three and dibro
gardiug persoual considerations tho best
man not only ought to but gcncially
docs win. The timo is rapidly passing
when any journal can appeal to tho pub-
lic for support on purely partisan con
siderations. Wo shall rejoice when we
cry falls wholly still-born upon the pub-
lie ear. "Wo have too much politics and
too tittle common sense. Wo cheerfully
indorse and commend to all thinking
minds the' sentiments of the Evening
News which in speaking of tho proposed
Stato Convention says " Party should
bo littlo regarded." Let us rather look
to ability and integrity of character.

A case of poisoning iu Italy from
tho uso of copper vessels is recorded

Debt. ' "
Did you ever think for a nifttuciiksjSW"-
tho suffering and troubles which ariseV
from debt? How many victims debt
has sent to the rum shop there to
drown all thoughts of this troublohow
many men make the first step iu crime
to relieve themselves temporarily of
linaucial embarrassments how many
torturing terriblo years of worry and
anxiety how many sleepless nights
given to debt no history no pen can
ever tell. With the proud aud sensi-
tive man who labors to recover losses
hoping by unusual exertions to regain
the lost ground the trouble is like a
slow eating caneor that leaves him no
peace of mind day or night the final
end of bankrupcy and ruiu. Honest
in a determination to meet every debt
interest and principal how often men
failing after years of useless struggle
to meet compounding interest cut
short a useful life iu a suicide's grave.
The depreciation of property the fail-
ure of erops the stagnation of trade
and manufactures leaves to-day thous-
ands of men looking eager into tho fu-
ture with the hopo that tho morrow
may bring relief each day addiqg gray
hairs and hours of unknown torture. Is
tho picture overdrawn ? Look around
and ask the man who has passed
through financial trouble to tell you
his history. Speculation has swept
over the whole land overturning calm
and considerate judgment inviting the
young and the old to join in the chase
after fortunes. Sudden fortunes iu
gold lead coal oil lands or stocks
have demoralized wholo communities.
Bauking upon prospective gains men
have rushed ahead gambling in land
and lots with money thus easily 'earn-
ed. Throughout tho great West since
the war has thi hurricane passed ovor
nearly overy Stato aud with all the
old land-marks all old fashioned ideus
of values salaries and economics swept
away in this pestilence of speculation
is it any wonder as the storm lulls and
the tide ebbs that wo find vast num-
bers of wrecks?
Tho man who has paBsed through
tho last fifteen years if in active busi-
ness and witnossed the unparalleled
fluctuations in values may say to his
son who is about to enter activo life :
"There is in all this but ono lessonand
that is as old as tho hills. Select for
yourself an honest and legitimate call-
ing within tho range of your capacity
resist tho temptation to speculate and
abovo and beyond all keep out of
dobt." Kansas Farmor.
