Anderson over the question of re-

coming strong. Let it be hoped
that they won't immitate the Kansas
jayhawkers and go to war over it.
The democracy of Frio county re-
fused to endorse Congressman
Crain for re-election. Other coun-
ties wijl probably follow suit. The

The Clarkites used to try to
taunt the friends' of Mr. Hogg when
the counties first began to hold con-
ventions and instruct for Mr. Hogg
with the remark that their man was
a long ways from getting two-thirds
of the votes. They now say nothing
about two-thirds but sin)ply deny
that he will be nominated by accla-
mation. Bisbop Ibelaxd of the Catholic
church delivered an address before
the national teachers convention at
St. Paul Minn. last week in which
he favored religious instruction in

The Abilene Reporter observes:
"There is scarcely a day passes that
jve ao not read in the metropolitan
papers of some young man losing
his mind because of smoking ciga-
rettes yet the number of consumers
seems to grow. At the present rate
we will have more lunatic asylums
than churches or schoolhouses in
this country and they will be filled
with the soft-brained idiots who con-
stantly suck a cigarette."
As has been remarked heretofore.
Secretary Blaine and Speaker Reed
l-are not on the best of terms.
'although they are of the same polit
ical uuu&enoio. nan irom tne same

New YokkIStais : An attempt by
congress to reapportion representa-

new districts for the November elec-

country as evidence of a giant con-

the census is honest no one can lose
