ISeeds of the tone (Star State.
The growth and development of
Texas cannot be exaggerated. Fort
Worth eight years ago contained but
800 inhabitants; in 1880, .6,000
and to-day, 16,000, a perfect sys
tem of : water-works-, street railroads
and ga3. Sewerage is being built, tho
streets graded and macadamized ; a tine
opera-house is in process of constrnc
, tion, and every thing that goes to make
up a city, except tho hotels. The Lord
have mercy upon the man that has to
contribute $3 per day to tho hotels of
Fort Worth, especially the El Paso.
Fifteen cents would be extravagant.
Why some live hotel man has not
found this place before is a mystery,
as the arrivals during last December
were over 9,000 as shown by
the hotel registers. This city has a
E number of large wholesale houses, one
grocery house last year having sold over
$1,500,000 worth of goods. If some un
foreseen circumstance does not check
the growth of Fort Worth, it will soon
rank as a city of 25,000 to 50,000 inhab
itants. The future city of Texas is
Dallas. Containing a population of
10,000 in 1880, without effort apparently
upon the part of her citizens, she ha3
grown to be a prosperous city of 25,
000, and is going right ahead. Dallas
is doing more than four times the busi-
ness of any city of her size in the north.
There are great opportunities here for
men of energy and capital. .
What Texas needs is more corn, less
cotton, more . hogs and better cattle.
The crops this year in northern Texas
are good, the acreage of corn is about
double , and the yield fair. A great
many cattle will .be fed this winter,
i The cotton crop is short. The acreage
is not more than 33 per cent., and in
the southern part of the state the aver
age is not over 50 per cent. The los3
in the aggregate to the state on the
cotton crop is estimated at $30,000,000.
What Texas needs is northern enter
prise and knowledge. The latter she is
' fast acquiring, and certainly the former
win come n only apprised, ot tne opportunities.-
Why should Texas pay
exorbitant prices for corn-fed beef ship
ped ra refrigerator cars from Kansas
City and St. Louis ? Why should she
ship her cattle alive to St. Louis, losing
100 pounds on each head and 1 cent in
the price, when she can slaughter them
at home and ship two car loads in one ?
Why should Texas be dependent on the
north for bacon and lard when hogs
grow and fatten themselves here? Why
should Texas be dependent on the
north for flour when she should have a
surplus of millions of bushels of wheat?
These questions will soon be solved, and
the men to take the stop in advance
will reap a rich reward.
The American IliD-l'ocket.
The "hip-pocket" in American-made
trousers gives a. wrong impression
abroad, although its use has become
very general in this country. An Eng
lishman, who was recently entertaining
a company at a table d'hote with his
knowledge of American customs and
manners, declared that every American
"man" carried a pistol, and that it was
necessary, as life was so insecure there,
An American iaay saici tiiac lie was
telling her somethir.g new of a country
where she had always lived. He re
plied that all American men had
hip-pockets made in their trousers
purposely to carry firearms. The
lady protested ; her husband, three sons
and brothers always had hip-pockets
made, but to her certain knowledge they
never carried fire-arms in them. Nor
did she know of any American who was
a walking arsenal, and she thought fur
ther that life in America seemed just as
secure as in Europe. "I am amazed,"
said he, to hear your apparently sin'
cere remarks,, but I cannot agree with
you. Several years ago, when I was on
the Laramie plains m the states, trav
eling for pleasure, some road agents
forced our party at the point of a pistol
to hold up both hands. They then emp
tied our pockets. The lady assured
him that very few of our leading men
are engaged in the road agent industry,
and that few of the others are loaded.

An agnostic is, therefore, the

The teeth, we are told, rarely escape
beautifying among the negroes of
equatorial Africa; for they file the
edges into notches, in some cases, until
they resemble the serrations in a saw.
The Africans, however, are excelled by
the Malays in their artistic treatment of
the teeth ; for not only do they stain
them black, but the latter file them into
fantastic shapes. And in Borneo an
elaborate process is adopted ; the front
surface of each tooth being drilled in
the centre, and a round or stai-shaped
knob of brass inserted in the lsoie.
These knobs are kept bright by the ac

Expensive Match Safes
Two ladies, one elderly, the other
sr. sauntered to a counter in Tif
fany's, New York, and asked to see some
pocket match safes.
"Of any particular kind, or at any
special price?" the salesman inquired.
".No. We want to select one from, the
prettiest you have," the young lady re
The salesman showed several in
bronze with raised designs in silver.
One of the designs was a cluster of
small growing daisies and a bug hover
ing over it. The salesman pressed a
spring, the top flew open, there was a
crack and a flash, and a wax match
stood bold upright ignited. The hinge
on which the lid worked was perfor
ated, and by a , peculiar spring the
match immediately beneath the perfora
tion was thrust through it and limited
by the friction.
"How much is this?" the elderly lady
"Twenty-five dollars, madam."
"Oh, mamma," the young lady said
in an undertone, "I don't care to get a
match safe so cheap as that for him."
.Let me see some other designs,
said the elderly lady.
bhe was shown some more in copper,
with raised letters and monograms in
silver, and at about tho same price. The
young lady shook her head negatively
at these, and also at some beautiful
safes of fine tortoise shell with silver
clasps. : .
"You can have initials of silver or
gold on these," the salesman remarked,
But none of these was satisfactory,
and the salesman brought out another,
saying: "These range from $50 to
The most expensive one was a safe of
gold beaten and lumped so that it
looked like rich ore. A diamond sunk
in one of the lumps indicated the posi
tion of the spring. The cheapest was a
beaten silver with a rubv. From the
lot the young lady selected one in beaten
gold, with burnished gold designs and a
small diamond, it cost $izo. A man
looking through the entire lot would
have undoubtedly selected that in cop

tasteful and practicable. "

What the Treasury People Fear.
What tho treasury people fear in the
future is that their paper issued may
by duplicated' by the means employed
by the photo-lithographers. It is possi
ble with the aid of photo-lithography to
duplicate every line of the most skillful
and intricate engraving. This fact was
brought to the attention of the depart
ment not long ago.
The statutes forbid any imitation of
the currency of the country for tho pur
poses of advertisement. This is not
generally understood. A New York
brewer recently devised a business
card in the shape of a plate with sev
eral bills of different denominations
lying upon the plate, being held
down by a gold and a silver coin.
He had employed regular bills as tho
models lor the wort, and the result is
absolutely startling. What portions of
the bills that show in the careless piling
are absolutely periect. lhey were re
produced by photo-lithography and then
colored exactly like the originals. The
plates were all seized, and the brewer
notified that he was a violator of the law,
although his intent was innocent.
This discov ery has set the olhcials to
thinking. With the right kind of paper
any skillful photo-lithographer could get
un millions in a very short time. To
guard against the danger and to provide
means of detecting such counterieits are
as yet unsolved jroblems. .

The Morgan Portable Steam Drag Saw is an invention that fills a long felt want for
woodmen. The saw and engine are so light that it can be carried right to the logs jn
the wood and will cut them right where they lay. No need of heavy teams to haul the
logs to the engine, the same as where the donkey engines are used. Any man of ordi
nary intelligence can operate the saw. The price is ho low that any man can pay for
his engine and saw by one month's work with it. For further particulars address
