Austin Cali have an ornamental mayor at the High figures of s800. A dam mayor wanted. Palestine had a hair trigger on her Mouth when she fired that demand for a resignation into mayor word. This legislature a death on time. It has killed More of the old Man s Hittle children than it can Ever answer for. The Palestine times says Hogg was killed with the Railroad Bill. The times Man dons not mention the Date of the funeral. The deadlock goes in legislative circles this season. The Harvest of United states eau Vitora will not be improved thereby. There is not As much Monkey an Parrot about congressional proceed Ings a there was two weeks since but there la a Heap More work. In every citizen of this City would work for the town he Barnes his Broad in the old Alamo would be on a Bie Ger Bender than the Tennessee waa last week. Railroads and not the labourers on railroads or anywhere else Are the concerns of the state As elicited from the message and documents before the legislature. Corpus Cit Kisti i8 Busy Witti a scheme to advertise her attractions and draw an immense crowd to her summer Chala qua. If Corpus strains her Solfaro will make the big cities stare. The Houston Post raise the age of consent which makes a Gir the custodian other own Honor from ten As h is now to sixteen years. The Light sees Tho Post and goes two years better. Make it the Lega Marriageable age eighteen. Cold weather Aud hot Weathe have been equally scarce in South West Texas this Winter. Tho Soasti has been unusually equable for Texas the Date opening of Spring give Promise of a Good fruit crop. Houston is chagrined Over the utter disregard paid by the slate legislature to the efforts of the Bayo boys to Corral a cold Cas for the proper placing of Texas before Tho state legislature. If exhibit were going at at ten cents a Kiln Ful this legislature would Uoc a ppr ate a Brick. The Laredo times san an Tonio talks of establishing Large to hug Mills a she has Cotton and woo but no Iron. Anton talks and hug High time she que talking and got a move on herself. An unreliable Savage. It is no wonder that Texas is called wild and woolly in the East where she is unknown when she is habitually misrepresented by those who Ola Ltd intimate acquaintance with her Aud her people and to whom the East would naturally look for Correct information. It does seem As though certain persons had a mania for mis representing every Section through which they travel or in which they temporarily abide when they return to the places from which they de parted Aud move again among the old familiar scenes. These people Evi Dently think that their own in por Lauce is enhanced in the eyes of the Public by representing the people whom they have been As us South bizarre Aud As we term it in Texas wild and Texas offers a particularly inviting Field for Hia kind of misrepresentation. It is not Only far away from the great thoroughfares of Eastern and Western Ravel Between new York and _8an Rau disco but is Down on the mex a Border concerning which All Orts of wild tales Are believed and a consequence any improbable tory goes. There is every excuse for he Man who knows nothing of Texas believing these Munshausen tales and repeating them but there is no Man Ner ofe Nuse for the Man who has rave led in Texas and knows Texas r claims he does to invent such improbable yarns Aud Palm them off for hard cold facts. In the first lace it does Texas no Good and in the second place it develops a facility of lying in the narrator that is utterly unnecessary nature having amply endowed him with All needed gifts of mendacity without any cultivation. Under the head or. Potter in exam the new York world gives be impressions of Texas received by he narrative of col. R. H. Savage his gentleman claims to have served after a very varied Western army up Erienne us a staff officer As a member of the commission sent out y Gen. Grant to inquire into the exas claims against the comanches and in conversation reported in the new York world of a very recent ate ridicules the idea of any one opposing that the character of or. Otter is not drawn to the life eel army that it is not a bit of Yagge in this conversation col. Avage said i know a half dozen totters1 in exas now. There s Milton Kennedy he Pennsylvania Quaker who was Artner of Captain Dick King in the Wue ship of the whole steamship get on the Rio Grande Aud two Iii inches besides. Kennedy is Worth millions today but he wears his Heck shirt and Brodaus and uses his quakerism in speech As he did when Day labourer. Captain King himself who Eold his ranch for to an English Syndicate was a regular desperate Cool rough Aud Eady a King at Home and the equal f Auy Mau anywhere. He began life u Texas As a Steamboat hand and has devoted his whole Fortune to making la daughter Happy. And Captain Ting retains his Irish Brogue to this a. The Milton Kennedy referred to is no doubt Captain Mitiu Kenedy those form is a Millar one la the corridors of the Monger hotel who was the Power behind the throne n the building of the Arkansas pass Road. Col. Savage evidently knows As Little about Tho gentlemen Himsel As he does about his name. Capt Iceney is a quiet unassuming gentleman very neat in his dress Aud answers col. Savage s de scrip Chou As thoroughly As a Little Nigger s portrait represents a Darl night. If the colonel was t Oft or his Cheek As a Reward for the brogans Aud Check shirt and Potter ism of Cap. Kenedy he could not fun it. The statement is not True. B also Concei King one o the potters whom col. Savage know now and who retains his Ikirt by souk to this ing he has been dead four years. The colonel s imagination was a Little tax vivid when he gave himself away i that fashion. There is but one re ago from these misrepresentations let Texas make herself know and writers like col. Savage will b known too known to be Udworth of credence. The Southwest is preparing for a move All along the Liue this Spring and real estate will to higher on the coast than it has been since the hang ing gardens of Babylon were built.
