A Protest From Merchants.
Eaolk Pah, Texas, Slay 12.- The
merchants of 1'iedras JNcgras held a pri
vate meeting yesterday to take measures
against the heavy, and they claim illegal
tax levied upon them by the government
for the pretended support of the munici
pality. The tax now collected on imports
into the so-called free zone of Piedras
Negras amounts to 6 per cent ad valorem
on foreign goods and 2$ per cent on
goods of Mexican manufacture. This is
a heavy drawback on the merchants ef
tli.it town, and the interior merchants
threaten to withdraw their trade from
this point if they have to pay this addi
tional tax. Of this 6 per cent, 4 per cent
goes to the city and the balance to the
State. The amount collected for the city
is bctweee $:,000 and $4,000 per month,
and the total expences of the city gov
ernment are only $1,000 per month. The
money is drawn out of the treasury by
the Jefc Politico. The query in th
miuds of the merchants is where dos it
go to Messrs. Rafael, Musquix and
Susno were appointed delegates to lay
the matter before the government at Sal
tillo, and try and have it remedied.
Orders for Oorder Officers.
Xoi-.ai.ks. A. T., May 11. The secre
tary or war of Mexico, has notified the
military officers stationed along tlte bor
der, that hereafter the rules regulating
the demeanor of the military officials will
be strictly enforced, and that the extreme
penalty, including a heavy fine, will be
metfd out. As a punishment for conduct
unbecoming an officer for crossing over
into the United States with troops and in
terfering with the affairs of citizens of a
friendly nation the highest penalty, death,
will be imposed. This step was taken
just after the inquiry into the cases of
Col. Arvizu and Lieut. Guiterres, who
crossed the line at this place and fired up
on the American civil officers and rifcued
a prisoner. These two officials were tried
by court-martial at Guaymas and sentenc
ed to be shot. They appealed to the Su
preme Military Court, which has just af
firmed the decision and sentence of the
court-martial. President Diaz has, how
ever, commuted the sentence to twenty
years hard labor in the military prison in
the state of Santiago.
An American Venice. .
Galena, 111., May 12. The city of
Galena has been turned into an American
Venice, and the novel spectacle of skiffs
and barges as a means of tram-portation
is now seen in all its business portion ex
cept Mam street. On the east side of
the latter thoroughfare the water in many
places is nearly up to the first floor, and
preparations are being made by those
most interested to move into safer quar

charged with having recently gone to the
house of John Durdam. whom they took
and scverly whipped for some trivial of
fense. During the fracas Durham had
gotten his pistol and shot Gore, inflicting
a serious wound. It was for awhile
thought that Gora would die, and
the trial of the kukluxers was post
poned until he would have recovered
sufficiently to appear in court. The case
has been continued until Gore will be
able to testify. The greatest interest is
being manifested in the trial, as the kuk
luxers have long been a terror in the com
The Druggists' Convention-
Lincoln, Neb., May 12. The drug
gists' association closed its meeting last
night with a banquet, given to the. vi.-it-iug
druggists by the home druggUts. It
was a success of the most pleasant charac
ter. Responses to toasts were made by
Governor Thayer, M. E. Schultz, II. B.
Burden, A. B. Hayes, II. T. Clarke, Allen
W. Field, James K. Lilly and James E
Rd. In proof of the statement that the
greatest of decorum was preserved by the
banqueters, it is only necessary to say
that the ladies were invited, and that
wine was excluded from the menu.
A pleasant incident connected with
the meeting was the presentation of a
gold-headed cane to W. C. Lane, local
secrstary, by the exhibitors, to whose con
venience and comfort he has devoted
himself most assiduously during the ses
Winged Messengers at Key West.
Key Wkst, Fla., May 12. The estab

in connection with the signal office at
Key West is a foregone conclusion since
the order lni3 been promulgated by Gen
eral Greely, who has the matter in charge,
for necessary lights and fixtures. The
first purpose of thjs service is to bring
adjacent islands, especially the Bahamas,
into communication with Key tVest and
by cable with the main land. Those
familiar with the use of pigeons as mes
sengers believe the scheme will be a sue
cess, the only drawback being the liabili
ty of loss of birds in sudden stonnts on

,ent Not Odious In Tlii-ru-
There ta a frequently recurring complaint j
from the farm, reached through the ajjri- j
cultural press, of the reluctance of boys to
remain in farming pursuits; indeed, some- i
times even to enter on such a life. What is '
the cause of this restless and unwilling spirit!
Are country employments odious in them
selves? Is it a task more dreary or mora dan
gerous to break a fiery colt than it is to face
the winter as brakemen on a freight train?
Is it more ierilous to attend a shorthorn bull
than it is to be a policeman and club burglars?
Is it worse to do chores as a small boy on his
father's farm than it is to work for ? 1 a week
und pay traveling expenses to reacli thoolllee,
where the loy is the scapegoat who is always
wrong, and at whoso door tho shortcomings
of every other emplo3'e lie? Is it harder lines
to plow behind your own team, to drive your
own mowing maehine, or do a good part of
your own carting, than it would he to work
in u factory at any one of the various indus
tries cwrriod on throughout our land?
Whilo wo are compelled to acknowledge
that farming has its unsatisfactory points,
nono can disprove that much dro" vf;
broadcast everywhere, 'iud udvtutuiges oi
fered by agriculture to its followers are
freedom, not from duties, but from personal
inconveniences. It is the farmer's own fault
if his Louse Ueks comfort; the artisan must
work in his employer's shop or factory the
larger the establishment the less tho indi
vidual How many typesetters have injured
sight? How many brakemen are maimed
and killed? How long is tho dark li.st of
mechanics worn out beforo they have
reached maturity from the hardships inci
dent to the duties of their callings?
So take a look at a Lighev social grade ns
contrasted with what country a vocations
oirer. It is appalling to note tho young li ves
wrecked in cities; yotttua who strain every
nervo and use every means to attain a pro
fession, who just reach tho threshold and
then succumb, worn out in mind and crushed
in body. Of the vast multitudes who year
after year leave their country homes to seek
fortune ia cities, how many succeed? Tho
percentage is very small, even of those who
tlud a moderate amount of success. Some
lack ability, others endurance, and many do
not possess sufficient strength. American
Memory of a Railroad Conductor.
An illustration of how tho memory may bo
cultivated in retaining a long li.st of num
bers, one has only to observe tho freight con
ductors, and very often remarkable examples
of retentive memories will be found. 1 have
been on the road as a freight conductor for
fourteen years, and in that time my memory
has had a careful training in the particular 1
line of retaining numbers on the cars. I
start out on a run and know tho numbers cf
all the cars with which tho train is made up,
and whilo some cars will bo ltft at stations
along the road, and other cars will bo taken
up, yet at the end of my run if on oifieer
asks mo whether 1 have a car number so-and-so,
I can invariably tell him without refer
ing to my book.
Xow, w hen it is remembered that the train
may bo made up of forty cars, and that tho
numbers run all tho way from tho hundreds
to the twenty-five and thirty thousands, and
that a dozen cars may be taken off and
another dozen taken oa along the run, my
statement undoubtedly seems incredible to
those not familiar!' acquainted with this
particular department of railroading. But
it is a fact, nevertheless, and 1 have known
quite a number of freight conductors who
have memories of equal rententiveness.
Noting the numbers on tho cars daily for
years, a conductor lecomes so familiar with
tho work that his memory holds these large
numbers with but little difficulty. The stj-le
and peculiar finish of the cars from different
reads are also learned, and a conductor at a
glance can tell the road to which a car be
longs as far as he cau see it. Globs-Democrat.

that ho had taken at one period two and three
baths a week. After ho moved into tb
