Keeping It Very Quiet.

The communication states that there is beyond question, a great many cases of smallpox, but that it is impossible to get at the true situation, as the city officials and the newspapers are suppressing everything that would tend to create a panic.

WHO KNOWS OF HIM?
______

A MYSTERIOUSLY MISSING MAN.
______

The Unaccountable Disappearance
of Rush C. Montgomery.

     The subject of this item, Mr. Rush C. Montgomery, is a young lawyer who officed with Mr. R. C. Capers up stairs at 805 Main street. He boarded with his father in East Dallas, Mr. L. P. Montgomery, the assessor and collector of that city. On the 15th inst, he came home to dinner, and as usual, returned to his office. Shortly after reaching his office, he left, saying to Mr. Capers that he was going out to the water works to see a Mexican who had sent for him. No particular notice was made of this incident at the time as Mr. Montgomery was in the custom of making and filling appointments with clients, one of whom, the Mexican was supposed to be. But, Mr. Montgomery failed to return after a reasonable length of time, and Mr. Capers very naturally supposed when he failed to appear at the office by night, that he went home. He came not the next day and his absence caused Mr. Montgomery to make inquiry at the office for him when he was surprised to learn that he had not been there. Then, search for a clue to furnish some idea of his possible whereabouts was instituted, with the result of finding on his table, a memoranda left there the day he left, reading as follows: "Go to district court. See Dave Williams at 4 p. m. Pay Mrs. Cobbs taxes; then must go see Mexican at waterworks, from whom I received a note." Here, all trace of Mr. Montgomery is lost. The memoranda indicates that the Mexican mission was the last intended for the day. Search has been made for a Mexican in the vicinity of the waterworks, but no such person was found, or the presence of such even recalled by the inhabitants and frequenters of the locality.
     His parents are nearly distracted over his prolonged and unexplained absence. With no idea of his whereabouts, they can only hope for his well being.
     Rush C. Montgomery is about 27 years old; has light blue eyes, fair skin and light hair; he is five feet nine inches tall and weighs 165 or 175 pounds. He disappeared wearing a black broad-cloth coat, black vest and pants and a white derby hat. He has been a railway fireman, engineer and conductor, but has not been on the road for over a year past.

AN OLD HEIRLOOM.
________

The Original Possessor of It Fig-
ured Prominently in History.

     Mr. Tom Lewis, a deputy in the county clerk's office, has an heirloom which he stores very highly. It is a Masonic certificate issued to his great uncle, Meriwether Lewis, attesting to his good standing in Staunton, Va., Lodge No. 13, as a super excellent Royal Arch Mason. The certificate is dated October 31, 1799, and it was 90 years old yesterday. Vincent Taff, who signed as scribe, was a courier on Gen. Washington's staff. The certificate was given Mr. Lewis when he started with the Lewis and Clark expedition to the Rockies. The government failed to reimburse him in the hundreds of thousands spent in fitting out the expedition, and when he returned home, he became despondent and the melancholy spell ended in the taking of his life by his own hands.

ONE HUNDRED YEARS AGO.
________

Mrs. Christina Bordner of Fulton
County, Illinois.

      LEWISTOWN, Ill., Nov. 8.--Mrs. Christina Bordner, living with her son, Moses, a few miles from this city, is 100 years old, the attainment of that age occurring on October 26. The event, of course, was celebrated by a great reunion of relatives and friends, the following children being present: Mrs. Levina Baker, Dallas, Tex., Washington Bordner and Mrs. Margaret Ewers, the former of Lewistown, the latter of Erath county, Texas; Mrs. Francis McCracken of Liverpool Township; Mrs. Temperance M. Bath of Erath county, Texas; Peter Bordner of Dallas, Tex.; Alfred Bordner of Lewiston and Mrs. Christina Putnam of Dallas, Tex. Most of these children are themselves pioneers. Mother Bordner's descendants, living and dead, are as follows: Children, 13; grandchildren, 99; great grandchildren, 217; great great grandchildren, 24. The largest number of these are living and are good and useful citizens.
     Mother Bordner was born in Pennsylvania. Her maiden name was Christina Dosh. She married Peter Bordner in 1810, and he died September 11, 1881. So, they lived together 71 years, and the husband lacked less than 10 months of being 100 years old at the time of his death. It was certainly a remarkable case of longevity. Mother Bordner was 10 years old when Washington died, and remembers well the great sorrow of the people over that national calamity. She has a good memory for other important incidents in the nation's history. She seems to be in good health, both mentally and physically. She converses intelligently and partakes of her food without assistance. It is thought possible that she may yet be spared to a much greater age.
