Feeling that we are battling for tho right, we have no fear of the final result and will meet our politeal foe not with bitter invective and immoderate speech, but with the keen blade of logic in one hand and the impeni-trable shield of principle in the other. Having the courage of our convictions and standing upon a platform which is democratic to the sore, we will move forward regard less of the taunts and threats of time servers or the wails and m:s givings of the timorous. Hogg po liticians can rot consistent charge us with endangering success of the national democratic ticket and in % tiinidate us with cries of “fore bill.” It there should be any defection from the strength of the national ticket, the blame must be laid at the door of that taction of the now dismembered democracy, which saw fit to repudiate the national democratic platform, thereby plac ing the club of destruction in the hands of our enemies to be used by republican speakers, who no doubt will make the most of it. We stand, iii advocating Clark and his platform, with Cleveland and sound money and every vote east for Clark by Clark democrats will also count for Cleveland and Stevenson. A RTE SI A JC WATER.

It stands to reason that ocean greyhounds are not ordinary barks. A Fesr Words about Irrigation. The following is taken from Prof. Robt. T. Hill’s geological report for Texas: It is hardly necessary to dwell upon the need and value of water to the fertile region in which it has been obtained. A good water supply is the foundation of every civilization, and man’s prosperity is usually proportionate to its abac dance and purity. In this special region the very qualities which make the soil rich havo made the surface waters scarce, often impure, and more or less defiled by invisible germs of disease and malaria, the only afflictions with which this otherwise most healthy country is troubled. The city populations were especial ly restricted aud inconvenienced by the lack of pure and ahunda.it water supplies. Within the last few years all this has been changed, and now we see the cities of Hons ton % Waco, Austin, San Antonio, bort Worth, Belton, Temple, Dsl las, Denison, Denton and Sherman (the later a negative well) all draw ing more or less abundant supply from underground sources, while hundreds of farms are annually supplied—giving increased value and now life to those places and an incalculable influence upon the material prosperity. Several of the large charitable and correction a1 institutions have also been sup plied with this water, as the state insane asylums at Austin and San Antonio and the reformatory at Gatesville. a *    * The industrial uses to which these waters are at present put are many. At Waco hundred of sewing machines in clothing factories, electric tooters, wood-working machinery and other small industries are mn by the pressure of wells, without wasting the water by the use of small and powerful California wheels. When the high cost of fuel in Texas is considered, this use of artesian water becomes a most iinportaat factor. The greatest use of this water at present is the fact that it briugs to) the hitherto poorly watered farming aud grazing lands an abundant supply of water for domestic and stock purposes, making small farms of IOO acres or less possible, where until recently subdivisions of large bodies of laud or ranches were im* possible, and, even in the rich black prairies around Waco, only large plantations could exist, eacK controlling a few surface wells or water holes from which the tenants dragged for miles the dirty water in barrels, while in time of drought there have been failures of even the domestic water supply for large districts. This condition has already changed, and Pratber’a well, for in stance, on a farm south of Wa30, alone furnishes more water thau the entire surface supply of McLen nan county, except the Brazos river 1 has heretofore afforded. I drove during the great droutht of 1877 from Decatur to Fort Worth, over a rich grass clad regioB, without being able to secure a drop of water for myself or team the entire distance, while dozens of teamsters were begging and trying to buy water from the owners of the few, and all but exhausted snr face wells, along the way. With the knowledge now oeforens, every foot of that vast area of the Grand Prairie, heir g underlaid by water, could be cut into 40-acre tracts, upon each of which, if flowing wells could not be obtained, magnificent negative wells, rising nearly to the surface, could be obtained, furnish ing an abundance of water, uu affect ed by drontht. it is not tim object of my report to discuss methods of irrigation, but show the amount and availability of the water. The rainfall of the northeastern portion of the Blajk Prairie region is abundant for all plantation crops. The re* luainder of the region is more pf less subject to dougtht at intervals from five to two years as we go eastward. All portions are subject to long, dry periods annually (usually in the autumn after the corn and cotton have been laid by), during which gardens and fruits suffer gieatly. *    *    * Tho value of these wells for irrigation has been demonstrated by the modest farmers of the Paluxy valley, who by their own bumble methods end without pre vinos knowledge of the subject are now quadrupling the yield of cotton and grain. A farmer at Paluxy stated to me that his tea seres oi cotton, yielding nearly two bales of 500 pounds each to the acre, was far more profitable aud easily worked than IOO acres wbieh he had until recently cultivated in Alabama. Irrigation from the artesian well is at present successfully practiced in the Paluxy region, and the Urg est and most prosperous city in Texts, San Antonio, is built upon and about an irrigation enterprise, which has most profitably and sue cesslully utilized their underground waters for nearly 800 years, afford ing occupation far all the mission settlements in the past, supporting hundreds of gardens at present and destined to be ot great value iu the future. Every drop of water from these springs and wells can . be utilized for irrigation, and when the peophr of the region appreciate the fact that e**eh gallon of water has a specific value in agriculture, as has a pound of ooal in industrial enter prise, not one drop of this water will be allowed to escape unutiliza tion,audjtbe agricultural wealth will be enormously increased.
