That tho ease ia without n parallel. 2. It thoroughly reviews the case as was douo by TIIE NEWS. 3. It announces that tho council and other city oillucrs are not iu contempt of tho supremo court, but of Judge Noouau's eourfc, to whiiih tno suproiuo court rouiaudud it. 4. That tho ease should havo been tried by Noouun's couit on itp merits, and not pro con- fesso as was done. 6. That tho case on quo warrauto was, how- ever, properly brought in' tho district court, inasmuch as the legislature in grouting tho city its charter uuido no provision in the charter for the city council passing, in ease of contest, on tho qualifications and legality of tho elections of its inombors, and when the charter is silent on.that subject the only placo to make a contest ia tho district court. G. It recommends that tho city have tho de- fect in this respect cured by tho next legisla- ture. 7. That when tho case was presented to tho supruujo court oa certificate and defendant Boolhauwe presented no statement of facts contravening, that there was nothing loft for the- supreme court to do but to affirm the de- cision of tho lower court and reinund it to that court for execution. 8. It concludes, as THE NEWS predicted that it would, by recommending that tho mayor and council recognise tho fact that the decree of tho supreme court makes the matter a finality, and thnt thero is notliing loft them to do but to swear m Hootlmg and give him his scat and powers as alderman of tho Fifth ward.

July review of tho pro- ductive industry of Dallas, giving details, showing the number of operatives in each factory, the increase in these in 1891 over 1890 and tho territory covered that wart not touched before, will appear in to-mc-rrow'i NEWS. As compared with October, 1890, ber of factories has increased from 127 to US, and operatives from 2700 to 2910. This is a showing of a dull summer season in July as against tho busy October of 1890. All the factories report a good outlook and steady increase, most of thorn getting ready to add more hands as soon as fall business opens up. A further shoving is made that Dallas sells certain lines of goods not only in Texas, but also in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mexico. Now Mexico, Colorado, Indian Territory, and even Kow York and the state of Washington. A noticeable feature is tho making of glue and soap as collateral industries to the beef and hog packing, and paper boxes as collateral to tho paper mills. Wheat straw that for years has been rotting as waste iii the wheat fields in north Texan is now sold in the shape of paper and boxes and bags. The offal of ani- mals is turned now into g'ue and soap.

The Port Lavuco people held a big jollification last night on learning the decision of tho railroad commis- sion in regard to running daily trams to that point. Yesterday a young man named Chaa.

DR, HARTMAN'S Lecture on Acute Diarrhea, Chronic Diarrhea, and Cholera infant uta> A Treatment That In of Vital Interest to All Masses and Ajes. All of the abdominal organs (stomach, liver, duodenum and intestines, etc.) have for their lining mucous membraue, which is continu- ous throughout their entire length. Inflamed or congested states of this mucous membrane is what gives rise to the various diseases of tho digestive tract. Tho diversity of mimes given to tho diseased of tho alimentary canal do not indicate (as is commonly thought) different diseases really, but only tho same disease located at diti'uroiit places iu some p'irt of it. If the inlluuiccl mucous membrane happens to bo iu the stomach the disease is called gas- t ritis; if tho mucous membranes of tho duode- num and liver bo tho ones inflamed it is culled cholera movbuu; if it bo tho lining membranes of tho mletitiucs. large uud small, it produces el-Udrpn cholera infantum; but if Iho inflammation, bo confined to tho lower part of tho large intes- tiuo it is called dysentery. It ia easy to Bee, therefore, that till of these ailments aro of sim- ilar .uuturc, the principal difference being tho placo of their location rather than any essen- tial diil'orcnco in their causation. 1 sl.ull not in this lecture attempt to describe all of the acuto discaBes of the alimentary canal, but will confine my remarks to "oun. namely, diarrhcca. This common disease ii the result of nn inflamed state of the mucous lining of the small and largo intestines. CAUSES. Irritation of the intestines by an improper amount or quality of food, impure drinking water, cathartic iiiuuicinca and poisons, bil- iousness aud indigestion, aro all capable of causing diarrhea. Again, changes of temper- ature, excessive cold or heat, checking OE tho perepiration suddenly, foul air of crowded roomSj bod hygienic conditions ef any sort, excessive fatigue and malarial exhalations, have each been tho .frequent causa of diarrhea, especially during tho summer months. The extreme fatality and some other peculiarities of 'diarrhea in fcfants has led to its being generally called cholera infuntum, but thero is no essential difference between the diarrhea of adults and cholera infantum. In either case the lining mucous membrane of the bowels are inflamed, which is tho samo in diarrhea ns in cholera infantum, except that the latter is more severe and dangerous und more often complicated with dysentery. Soldiers, who are subjected to the many exposures incident to camp life, aro the most frequent victims of chronic diar- rhea. Thousands of tho survivors of tho late war of the rebellion are still afflicted by chronic diarrhea, which was acquired during the war. PREVENTIVES. Mueh can be done to prevent thooecurrence of this very common Tho diet dur- ing tho hot mouths should be plain and wim- ple; avoid unripe fruit, half-cooked vege- tables, Overheating tho body, too suddon cool- ing of tho body, ice-water oriced drinks of any kind, excessive exhaustion, mental excitement and iinnuro drinking water. For infants breast milk is the best food in existence, and the very best preventive, of bowel difficulties in infants is plenty of milk of a healthy woman. In cases whore this is impossible great care should be taken in tho selection of fresh milk from healthy cows or goats. Chil- dren should have country air during the hot months or be taken to the country, when pos- sible, after being taken TItlATMIST. The treatment for an adult taken with diar- rhea is to inject into the bowles one quart of warm water to which two tablespoons of Pe- ru-na has t-een added. This is to be repeated in one hour. Twenty-four hours after this is to bo repeated, and so on each day until the discharge ceases, using two injections each time an hour apart. Children, under twelve years of age one pint of warm water, to which one tablespoontm of Pn-ru-na has been added, used as an injection exactly in the same man- ner above directed. For children under five years of age the quantity of water should bo one-half pint, and add one tablespoon ful of Pe-ru-na. Half thin amount is gnmcient for in- fants, but should bo used in every particular the same, viz., two injec- tions an hour apart each day. At the same time a tablespoonful of Pe-ru-na should be taken by adults every two hours. Children under twelve half u tablospoonful; children under five one teaspoonful, and in- fants under two yoarg.twenty to tmrty_ drops in sweetened water apart, "jj'dr' in- fantile diarrhea or cholera infantum apply flannel cloths saturated with heated Pc-ru-na over abdomen. Very old, chronic cases of diarrhea (those acquired during the war) must continue this treatment a few weeks, and if followed with diligence thero will not be a si.iglo failure. The actute diarrhea of adults is cured in from two to five days without ex- ception. In a practice of thirty-five yeara I have not lost a single case of diarrhea or cholera infantum, and whenever I hear of a death from either I can net suppress the belief that this treatment would have prevented it.
