Two Irreeoaellable Condition.

Debility and health aw irreconcilable conditions. Weakly people, that is to say people who lack the vitality requisite for a vigorous discharge of each and all of the bodily functions, 'are invariably afflicted with some, though it msy be a trifling, disorder of the sys tem. Atony, or a want of nervous and muscular vigor, is accompanied by poverty of the blood and leanness. A certain way to overcome it and prevent the nSTavited rnaladiea to which it must ultimately lead is to use Hostet-tsr's Stomach Bitters, which promote digestion and assimilation of the food. and thus are the means of furnishing tr.s body with a supply of blood of quality essential to its proper nourish ment.

The bearing of this great fact on the question of reviving business is as obvious as it is decisive." Business men generally in Texa3 should read busi ness articles in the Eastern and Westers papers and then profit by their reasoning and the information.

The article in the Herald of the fourteenth would be a very good one to commence on. It is better to be prepared for the worst than to be open to disappointments and losses by anticipating flusher times when really there is nothing to justify suoh anticipations. As for Austin, trade cannot improve a great deal even though a good crop be made, unless manufactures be established and a new policy of building up the city adopted. Many people firmly believe that Austin is larger now than the trade of the country will justify for the next two years to come. Let us have cotton and woolen factories, paper mills, machine 'shops, furniture factories, flouring mills, foundries, and less stores, and; houses to rent.

The conclusion of the Herald article says there will be a great change in business, as if by magic, in case the general expectation of a great war in Europe is realized, and that that impending event, the moment it happens, will touch all the nerves of American trade and industry. Miss Cora Hellensworth's second grand opening will take place to-day.

Hon. S. S. Cox's Lecture. Those who have read Mr.

Cox's contributions to Harper1 Magazine and his charming book of travels in Southern Europe, Corsica and Northern Africa have read passages from the lecture pronounced last evening by the distinguished member of Pathos and poetry and eloquence were made to invest "wit and humor" with the choicest charms, and; -while the lecture was designed to' do honor mainly to the genius of Ireland, the land of Burke and Sheridan and Goldtmith, the peculiar bent of each nation's intellect, as its wit is modified by race-features and facts, was acutely and learnedly dissected, illustrated and discussed. The Opera House was filled, and by the best audience of the most intelligent people ever gathered there. It is needless to say that Mr. Cox won.everybody. There is a fascination in the man's face and eyes as irresistible aa that wrought by his subtle intellect and golden-winged fancy.

His appeal in-behalf of the Union as it teas, and of wisdom in the conduct of the South and of persistent devotion to principle and right in law and gov ernment, in States and in the was most' eloquent and None who listened to Mr. Cox's pero ration will ever forget to accord to him the full measure of that 'of genius which won for him in his youth the soubriquet Sunset." He leaves the city this morning, and no stranger ever came and went away 'who has made as many friends and admirers among men and won more women's hearts as the matchless lecturer, Mr. Cox. Business. The New York Herald of the fourteenth says that "business is Struggling into a revival, feeble as yet, but not without promise." This, considering the frequent prophecies we have during the past few months, of revival in business, is drawing it rather mild.

The Herald then argues that the "most infallible criterion of the state of business is the condition of the money market: a Whenever business is. active there is an urgent, demand for money. There are always men enough eager to engage in trade or to extend their business when there is a brisk circulation of commodities, but they would need bank accommodations in proportion to the amount of trade to be done. Whenever there is a great deal of baying and selling there is. an active demand for money, and hence it follows that the' state of the money market and the transactions of the banks are a true index to the amount of business, and that the transactions of the banks are the true place to find the pulse of business." The Herald then says that "in an active state of business the basks easily get from sev MErt'o, YOUTH'S AND BOYS' BOOTS AND SHOES, Neck Wear and Clothing for Everybody!

Many of these sidewalks, so-called, are absolutely impassable. Mr. Wm. M. Spence, who has just returned from Shreveport, says that pickpockets, thieves and highwaymen are numerous up the Houston and Great Northern -Railroad, and that at Jacksonville he had "his pockets picked of a few dollars, while a Galveston man was relieved of much more money and a watch and chain.

The railroad company has recently discharged a great many employees, and Mr. Spence says that the impression prevails that in their desperation they have set out and organized to steal and rob. Houston is over-run with them, and Austin is liable! to be any day. Let our people "be "'ready- to "receive midnight calls and prepared with pistols to'give the intruders warm receptions. Before retiring people should put their pistols at convenient places and then, when a noise is heard, they should listen and proceed cautiously and systematically.

More Official Lawlessness. On Tuesday gentlemen rode over and after driving a mile or more beyond the bridge they met an intoxicated stranger, who, although they turned out of the road to give him room to pass, dashed his horse up against their vehicle, endangering their lives as well as his own. Not content with this, he drew a weapon from -his pocket-and threatened to shoot, repeating this proceeding after they had driyen off and left him in full possession of the road and the country round about. Being unarmed and unable therefore to go into battle with a man holding a pistol in his hand and crazy with whisky, they drove to the city and stated what had happened and signified their intention of going before the grand jury to inform on the man who, they stated, is a county offi- ciai living over tne river. e( Hotel Arrivals.

Deputy Sheriff Trim ble, of Oatmanville, had quite an ex citing race yesterday morning after a noted negro named Steve Pound, charged with 'stealing a horse about four months ago from S. J. Redd, liv ing over the river. Steve is said to be professional horse thief, vtry bold and courageous. He is also' fleet, and several times has escaped by flight af ter arrest.

Deputy Trimble came upon him at a negro's house near Oatman ville, and, riding in between him and the house, made known his business; but Steve, as usual, decided at once on taking leg bail, and away he went like an antelope, Mr. Trimble following and calling on him to halt; but to no pur: pose, and the race continued, Steve jumping a fence and the horse leaping over in hot pursuit. Finally Mr. Trimble ran up on him and commftneed beating his hard head with a heavy six-shooter, but Steve Pound did not mind pounding, and the officer was compelled to empty one of his weapon at the flying prisoner, the ball giving him a slight wound in, the side, and Steve was "taken in" and brought to town tied or a pony, to await in jail a trial for the offense with which he is charged.
