While reading Hill's last letter

Agent Woodson prohibited the mes-
cal bean, but said nothing about red
ink and lemon extract.
It is said that there is a probability
of Don Dickinson succeeding Secretary
Gresham in the cabinet.
Oklahoma town is at present having
gome sensations of a very rotten quality,
and the Daily Star seems proud of it.
Even though Senator Hill declares
that the Monroe doctrine is not law, the
American people are in a humor to
make it so.
There is a movement on foot to es
tablish a coffin trust in this city. No
-one will be allowed to die unless he be-
longs to the trust.
The Wichita Eagle says that unless
the women stay at home and mind their
business the coming man maybe heir-
less as well as hairless.
They now have a new name in the
large cities for high building, they are
called "serial buildings," because they
have "continued stories."
If some people went as far to meet
their bills as they do to meet trouble
there would not be so much debt in
the world. -Atchison Globe.
If in the next world we must give an
account of every idle word spoken on
earth, heaven must be a happy place
for there will lie so much to talk about.
Russell Sage says that a man ought
to support a good sized family and lay
by money on 95,000 a year. We don't
believe it, any way we'll bet he's afraid
to try us.
Women cannot throw because of a pe-
culiar formation of the shoulder blade

HI'*! X ESS CONVA LKMCENC'K.
The restoration of wages in manu
facturing centers of the east is stimula-
ting a confidence among the operators
in all classes of commerce which is
bound to be far reaching in its results.
There is a district revival of activity
and broadening of transaction in staple
agricultural and manufactured pro-
ducts. These indications clearly war-
rant the belief that the trend of busi
ness is well along toward pr<jsperity.
It might be borrowing results to as-
sume that the state has fully recov-
ered from the effects of the recent de-
pression, but its convalescence is posi-
tively assured and all signs indicate
stimulated activity among the suppli-
ers of merchandise. Everything seems
to point to the greater output at a
less relative cost, both in production
and distribution, and in nearly every
line of commerce making readiness to
supply the growing demand for goods
is the feature of the hour.
The influences at work are not the
opening of an unexpected market nor
speculative manipulation. The consu-
mer is doing the buying, the retailer is
stirring up the supplier and the manu
facturer and importer are called upon
to produce goods that must be had.
This necessarily gives the movement a
durable character and a permanent ad
vance is apparently standing upon a
During the past two or three years
people have economized in the use of
necessaries, but these are now worn
out or consumed and must be replaced.
The earning capacity is improving and
the bright business outlook, surelv
may be regarded as likely to last. In
spite of all reports to the contrary,
there is a much better prospect for
the first half of the year 1895 than was
the result of 189.') and 1894 during the
There are now upward of :t0,000 trad-
ers actively engaged in business in
Texas. They have undergone a scruti-
ny in point of desirability as credit
risks more searching perhaps than
in any other state. The conditions re-
vealed have been most gratifying and
have developed a general renewal of
confidence such as makes it sensible
for the steady-going, industrious mer-
chant to look forward with certainty
to a reasonable return for his invest-
ment and a fair wage in addition for his
effort. During the week ending Sat-
urday. May 11, 311 new traders em-
barked in business iu north Texas, in-
vesting upward of half a million dol-
lars to begin with.

since Agent Woodson has called it to
the attention of the Indians here by
prohibiting it, they will perhaps com

Well-bred people do not go where
they are not invited. How often do
you invite the general public to your
place of business? People go where
they are interested. They are never
interested in things of which they are
entirely ignorant. Do you try to inter-
est the general public in your place of
business, and what have you in it?
A special to the St, Louis Repub

come from Alvin, Brazoria county,
state that an organized band waited on
all negroes and commanded them to
leave town by tomorrow night or to be
prepared to meet death. Up to two
years ago a negro was not allowed to
stop in ihe town, but since that time
many have settled there.
Another proof of a return of business
prosperity throughout the country is
the prediction of railway men that the
excursion business is going to be ex-
traordinarily heavy this season.
Ex-President Harrison has evidently
placed himself in the "hands of his

Money orders may now be obtained

the present financial depression, wants

The "Trilby" fad has inspired the
stage to the invention and adoption of a
new dance called the "Trilby" dance.
Its chief novelty seems to be that it is
danced with the bare feet genuine,
unconcealed, sure enough bare feet.
We would think that the fear of splin
ter, tacks, etc., would tend to prevent
the dance from becoming very popular.
Last week we published a little squib

The proclamation opening the Kicka-
poo reservation in Oklahoma is being
prepared, but the date of itB promulga-
tion and the date of the opening are as
yet undetermined, though the secretary
of the interior is personally engaged in
the elaboration of the details.
Mr. Smith regrets exceedingly that
congress failed to equip the department
with legislation which would have en-
abled it to eliminate from this opening
the disagreeable features which char-
acterized the last and which appear to
be inseparable from the existing sys-
tem. The comparative smallness of
the reservation, its great fertility, and
the numbers of those who have fixed
their desires and ho|ies upon it, alike
contribute prospectively to make this
opening notable. It will lie conducted
in the free for all fashion.
It is altogether probable that Gov-
ernor Renfrow will be allowed to make
selections in the Kickajtoo reservation
of school idemnity lands. Such action
will make splendid provision for the
