His Annual Farewell Tour of
Ik Texas, )
Down ey the Bio Gkaxde. )
I am preparing at this time a large
and costly testimonial forthe young
man who suggested the idea of making
this spring my first grand annual fare
well tour of Texas. It has been a
great success from a boxtdiiee and so
cial standpoint. Artistically, of course,
the carping critic might see places
where he could hav done a great deal
better himsejf.
Texas, as we know already, is a
mighty empire of itself, connecting
the stern and sturdy elements ot the
r nrmersA Alliance ot Kansas on the
north with the romantic yet peppery
(jnixu'e of t he south. Here the sad
and solemn lubricator, vulgarly called
the greaser, spends patrimony on

has left he btivs a horse. 1 never lire
of looking at the delirious clothes of
a prosperous greaser. They are wildly
beautiful to one who loves, as I do,
to see a hand to -hand contest to a fin
ish between strong colors.
On Sunday 1 attended divine wor

Antonio. It affords me a grand op
portunity to look: at the clothes of the
congregation, as we do at home, also
to study the faces of the people us tney
came out. Religion does not seem if.

fort.i He jroes through it, however, as
one gets his teeth repaired not for
the thrill of joy he finds lurk
ing in the job itself, Out as a precau
tionary measure and as an evidence ol
4iis powers of endurances
The ladies of the congregation, it
seemed to me, -showed better taste in
proportion to their means thau the
gentlenieji. They dressed plainly, and
seemed to favor deep mourning where
ever there was an excuse for it. Some
of them, I jadge, were mourning on
very slight provocation that is. if they
weiv mourning tiie loss of Mich hus
bands as I was permitted to see samples
The men wore large hats, heavily
embroidered, and whatever else they
could get in the way of clothes. J
never saw people sun so much hats or
seem indifferent to outer clothes. I
i t i i
saw one man ai cnurcn wuo wore a
massive Mexican hat with two or three
pounds of silver braid on it, and u
leather cinch with two saver buckles
for a baud. He also wore a beautiful'
pair of lilac trousers. 0;;e man in
the amen corner of the cathedral wore
no ceat or vest, but had a shirt made
of buff calico, with irrim figures
on it, and it was made with puffed
sleeves and a Stewart collar. He had
also socked his inheritance into a hat.
I 1. . i: i a . i

Dallas is probably (he most prosper
ous of Texsis cities. Some well known
wnterup of towns possibly Charles
Dudley Warner states that if you
draw a circle, using a radius of 100
milrs, with Dallas as the center, you
will have therein thirty-four counties
I was too tired to try it while at Dallas,
and could not get a 100 mile radius at
any of the places where I looked
Some of the stores didn't seem to have
any radius at all.
These thirty-four counties produce
nearly half of the cotton of Texas, also
more than halt the oafs and wheat. It
is a very fertile district indeed. Th
sou is rich and de.-p, and cotton just

I judged that it had been several years

Dallas is beautifully surrounded by
the State ot lexas ana U.uc unit, a
. r. try s 1 1 nf
handsome suburb, with a thriving ho-
tel and a vigorous girls' college. Also
a pavillion fer speakers and concerts
duriug the summer, and a menagerie.
There is a train running between Oak
Cliff and Dallas which is called an ac
commodation. It is ow ned by the ho
tel, and the proprietor throws iu the
railroad. I say this so that the inter
state commerce outfit may look into
the matter and throttle this giant evil.
Dallas did a business in 1SS9 of over
S3 1,000,000. Since then trade has
reatly increased. While there 1 met
a company of Boston capitalists, head
ed by ex-Governor BracKett. I hey
had just bought a building for $250,-
000 that day. Four million dollars
are (or is) invested iu factories and
the yearly product is over 8,000,000.
I was also in Dallas two days, and put
quite a little sum of money in circula
tion while there. I cannot help it.
The western spirit - of freedom and
reckless expenditure conies over me,
and I buy the morning paper some
times and do not read half of it.
I went to see the "Ulcmeuceuu Case j
while in Dallas. I had avoided it
while in New York, but the pictures
and printing were so beautiful that 1
accepted theJnvitatioH of a real nice
man and went to see thw ''Clemenceau
Case." I will never have to do so any
more. I write down my confession
that I did go with much sorrow and
regret, but I cannot conceal it any
The play is said to have a beautiful
moral concealed iu it. There was no
oncealment in the play with this ex

the Strawberry Blonde; or, Drowning
