Condition of Texas Cattle.
Cisco, TYx., Nov. 30. Sjveral promi
nent f-toekim n have been interviewed by
the QlubtrDemoc-rat correspondent dur
ing the past two days, and in answer to
questions in regard to tho stock interest
the'- answer that the outlook is better
than it has been for years. The demand
for 2 and 3 year olds can not be supplied.
Within the last two weeks several thous
and head in this section have been sold
nt prices ranging from 17 to $18 pei
head. There is not much demand for
stock cattle, and they will be left on the
range, which is fine and will carry them
through the winter without feeding.
Natural Cas In Kansas.
Topeka, Kan., November 30. Prof.
Larkin, the state geologist, has been en
gaged for several weeks superintending
the sinking of a, experimental thaft at
Ciierryvale to ascertain whether there is
coal within a resonable distance of the
surface there, and at the depth of 305
feet they struck a heavy vein of natural
gas. which he pronounces to be of the
best quality of hydrogen gas. He pro
poses to m ike a thorough geological sur
vey of th ; country ia the vic-i:iity of
Parsons. He says the city lies directly
within the natnral ga belt, and is confi
dent that a shaft cunk athq proper depth
will disclose not only a heavy paying
vein of gas, but also coal.

LATEST FROM PARIS.
No Change In tho Presidential As
pectPlots and Counterplots.
Pauls, Dec. 2. When the members of
the cabinet visited Ely see in the morning
Gievy said: "If the chamber and 6enate
will I w w5li me to ri siyn thev must ac-
quaint me with their wish by clear, un
mistakable demonstration. The events
in the past few days convince me in that,
in the interest of the republic, I urn
bound not to resi.'u. I have receivetl
from various parliamentary quarters com
munications asking me to remain in
ollice, therefore I think it my duty to re
tain my official functions. I believe very
soon I shall be able to forma cabinet." -Ilouvier
appeared greatly irritated and
remonstrated with M. (Jrevy for sending
him to the chamber without the promised
Greyy, at the conference with the min
isters, alluding to the iutrigues of Ferry
uts, said: "It was all very artfully con
triyed at, but the game is now apparent
and not to the honor of human nature.
I see those who play it arc in a hurry to
eat at the presidential table, but they are
going to be disappointetl."
All the persons arrested this evening
were afterward released. None of the
injured were hurt seriously. It is said
this evening that the royalists tried to
keep their councils secret, but it trans
pired that Bishop Freppel, at the meeting
of his party, read a note from the vitican
in which the pope asked the deputies of
the i ight to vote for" Ferry. It is re
ported that several detlareel they would
not respect the rcqutst of the pope.
Revoluffionary leaders have bceu busy nil
day. During the day Bishop Freppel ap
peared on the terrace of the petit bour
bon garden and was menaced by a crowd
which pressed around him, shouting,
"Down with Freppel, to Ue riyer with
him." More of those who were engaged
in the demonstrations during the day be
longed to the respectable classes.

Held by a Vledi.
Never was that empire (4 ft wire, ra Al
geria) in such dsmgev as in the Franco-German
waft A, soon as it was evident that it
wo going against tho French, thoir troops
were recalled from Africa to take part in the
great struggle at home tiH Algeria was left
almost wjtbout defense. Then the hour for
which thp conquered races had lcaij waited
had come, and if they could, at oneo have
joined their forces and proclaimed a holy
war, it is altogether probable that the Fincb
would have been driven frwn northern
Airica. They might have regained Algeria
after tho German wur was over, but only by
a repetition of the years of fighting which it
cost to conquer it. That the tribes elid not
take advantage ef this and rise while the
French had their hands full on the other side
of tho Mediterranean was owing wholly to
their fidelity to a solemn pledge.
Whoa the war broke out, a chief of great
influence among the tribes, Mokrani, gave
his word to the governor general of Algeria
that there should lxjnq insui i eetion while the
war lasted. That word was faithfully kept.
Tho French arms were followed by disaster
after disaster; Napoleon surrendered at
Sedan, and Bazaine surroiKh-recl at Met?.
Then it seemed if a voice from the Rhine
called to the tribes of Kabylia to seizo an op
portunity which might never come again.
But not a man fctirreel; nor yet when all thG
defeats and disgraecs of the war culminated
ia tho siege and surrender of Parts. Tlu
Moslem's faith wtfs plighted; the Moslem's
faith was kept! But when all was over,
when the last battle had been fought, and. the
u euty of peace had been signed t Frankfort
then Mokrani was ir?fcaxt from his pledge,
and then, not until then, did he declare
war. And still he would take uo unfair ad
vantage, but gave fort3'-eight hours' notice
Then the war cry went; through the moun
tains, and thfi tribe rushed to the field.

On the "Installment rian."
Everything in this city goes on the install
ment plan, especially, among certain classes,
not necessarily the poorer ones, by the way.
Some time ago a friend of mine was showing
oie a fine gold watch, worth at least $100,
which he had recently purchased. I had not
heard of his falling heir to any property or
having any luck in the L. S. L., and looked a
bit surprised. "I'll tell you how i is," he
said. "I am buying this on the Installment
plan. ' I paid 20 pc.t cash and the balance in
payments oi i 3 per week. Yes, it will take
forty weeks to buy the watch; but, then, I
have the watch during that time r;1 every
one supposes I own it," And I found that
many of the young men are doing the same
But I heard of an instance wh.(?r$ a young
nan had bought his engagement ring on the
installment plan,. He is, getting 17.50 per
week, find has always managed to wear good
clothes, and fc$-i one of the prettiest little
gil ls on the East Side for company. At length
hey became engaged, and hhe exhibited the
ing to some friends, and among them was
a expert It. jewelry who told me the story.
'I ?ould not imagine,'" he said, "how that
f oung fellow could afford so expensive jew

he paid $3 down, and is now paying twenty

.Allusion was made not long ago in
thia paper to a weeping willow which
stood until recently in" front of the old
tavern (last kept by Samuel Shipman) in
Rocky Hill, Conn., the grandfather of
which was a slip from over the grave of
Napoleoni at Helena,and this brought
to mind the large willow which stood in
front of the tenant house of N. F. 31 iller,
r.ear the depot in Rloemfieid, and because
of its great ei?e and height began to be
dangerous and was cut down about two
yciirs ago, the stump measuring four
feet in diameter and about thirteen feet
la circumference. Thia tree was grown
from a slip taken from over the grave of
Napoleon, at St. Helena, in the fall of
1848, by Col. Charles Green, and by Lim
