. t-V • L- j. "O;. m, ' m I ÜE* Tf Don't Hurry Your Shipments. Do not be in too great a haste to send on your beef steers from the range this year. Prices are low and there seems no immediate prospect of an advance. The brethren are in need of the money the beef should bring, and the tempta- tion to ship early and stop interest ac- counts is strong, but it certainly looks like bad policy. The long-continued drouth in all the rich country contiguous to Chicago has caused the people generally to "dump" in their cattle, young, old and poor alike, and the market has been kept in a state of almost continuous demorali- zation for months by reason of the un- natural forcing of thin stuff into the slaughter-pens. Just how long this state of affairs will continue is a matter of some un- certainty, but it is believed that it can- not last much longer. During this local pressure every outside influence brought to bear still further weakens the market, and to avoid this should be our study. In ...

Fokt Worth, Tex., Sept. 9:—There was filed for record in the county clerk's office this evening a first mort- gage in the sum of $7,500,000, in favor of the Mercantile Trust Company, and a second mortgage in favor of the Cen- tral Trust Company, both of New York, in the same sum, both on the road-bed, track and equipments of all the lines of the St. Louis, Arkansas and Texas in tliis state. It is placed on record here to cover the road now being built in tliis county, from Com- merce. The mortgage also covers 120 miles of road, from Chandler to Fort Worth, which indicates that the exten- sion to Sabine Pass is to be brought to Fort Worth, where pine lumber can be distributed to those sections of Texas which have no pine whatever. Some twenty miles of the Commerce-Fort Worth line in this county are graded, and Chief Engineer Hinckley arrived to-night to arrange with the local com- mittee for right of way in the northern portion of Dallas....

:r- m: m: üf S .'" •. . ■V E&y. Jim Arnott's Oath. A thin-faced,hungry-looking woman, whose tattered dress scarcely covered her nakedness, dragged herself wearily along St. Clair street the other night. It was in the gilded section of the street, and the dens of vice and infamy were in full blast. The fiddle made discordant shrieks shrieks and the piano rattled as the woman peered into one and another of the vile places. By her side was a girl of twelve or thereabouts, ragged like herself, but With a'face that was beautiful, even though tear-stained and cloud cast. The two walked slowly on in silence. Both seemed to have but one object in view, and that was to find some one. They would steal carefully up to the door of a saloon and peer cautiously through the cracks, as if eager not to disturb the revelry within. At one of these, doors, with diamond cut glass in front, stood a tough-looking fellow, who was more than "half seas over.'' though not too drunk to notice the couple as...

This question lias been asked me many times by those whom I have met during my brief sojourn in your city. I answer: For a youngster, who hasn't taken off his safety pins, he is a dandy. For a youth just beginning to sit in a high chair lie promises much. If we judge of his manhood by what his in- fancy promises liecettainly will become a Hercules. He certainly has wander- ed far away from his fellow cities, and by so doing has demonstrated the spirit of progressive America. Undoubtedly he will carve out a name and fame that will be known throughout all the con- fines of civilization as the metropolitan for the Panhandle of Texas. To reach his domain we travel for miles and miles where the habitation of man is not. Just as we are beginning to think that we have reached the far-beyond...

He said that since fhe day that he ran away from his command life had been unbearable to him. Although he had plenty of work he was constantly in dread of being apprehended. This morning he determined to hand him- self over to the authorities, get back to his command, suffer the penalties of desertion, finish his term of enlistment, leave the service like a man and secure a peace of mind. Sheriff Ellis heard Bender's story and at once took him to the county jail and put him under lock and key. Alter performing this duty lie wrote to Col.

Since then the only business engaged in has been the raising of cat-* tie, and at which there have been ups and downs in the fortunes of the own- ers. The cattlemen were the advance guard of civilization, if it may be so expressed, in the .Panhandle, as they have been in other portions of the New West—they led the way and others have followed for the purpose of en- gaging in various enterprises. With the advent of the Southern Kansas and Fort Worth and Denver City railways the Panhandle of Texas is exhibiting signs of being developed, which will, within the next decade, surprise the old settlers. Even the range cattle-owners there, who for years declared that the country was unfit for agricultural purposes, are now talking as if they had been converted to the idea that there is no portion of the west which cannot, in c...
