Christmas is over. The day in
Brenham was a gala one. "Peace
on earth and good will towards
men" was not exactly the motto of
everybody here for there was some
few fights but this was the senti-
ment of the great majority of the
christian people here. It was in-
deed a season of Riving and receiv-
ing. A season when our hearts
were full to overflowing with good
will. Everybody seemed generous
and seemed willing and anxious not
only to divide their pleasurable
emotions but their worldly posses
sions as well. People here stnved
to follow the example of Him
whose natal day we were celebrat-
ing for they tried to make the day
one of joy to those whose pleasures
are few and many a life which
knows only toil and privation was
uplifted by having ministered to
their wants and comfort some
Christmas cheer from those who
were thus embracing the opportuni-
ty to give for Christ sake for since
that night when the stars sang
their jubilate over the rocky hills of
Judea and the wise men cast their
gifts aud frankincense and myrrh at
His infant feet has the day been
dear to the heart of the christian.
And while the day proper is over
the Christmas season will last for
several days yet and those who
have had no opportunity yet to
carry joy to some household may
yet find the chance if they will look
around while their hearts are
thrilling with sympathy as they
think of the two weary traelers
journeying through the twDight on
that memorable eve looking anx-
iously through the gathering gloom
to the lights that nickered afar in
the city of Bethlahem whither they
were going hoping to find rest and
comfort and finding no place but
the Humble stall among the ineec-
eyea cattle. Is there a mothers
heart that does not thrill with svm
pathy and pity as she thinks of the
blessed Mary her youth her seem-
ing helpless and lonely condition in
that trying hour? But Christ was
born and the earth was flooded
with the radiance of a Heavenly
glory that made the shepards bow
their heads before the angel choir
and hide their faces from the won
derous light since which time at
every Christmas the small boy by
artificial means tries to give the
world the same grand pyrotecnic
What a suitable time to bury
every unkind thought every trace of
ill will towards our neighbors or
others who may have offended. It
is a season of too much rejoicing to
leave a spot of ill will in a heart
which should be filled with grati
tude love and good will. At least
that is the way the writer feels and
to every reader of The Banner he
feels like saying may the angels of
this happy season bring you glad ti-
dings of great joy.and peace and plen
ty crown the approaching year which
will soon have dawned with renewed
opportunities for every one to do
good and be brave. On the "new
leaf which will soon be turned let
each one ask him or herself "what
shail the record be ?"
The editor of Texas Farm and Ranch very
truthfully remarks that it has been months
since the subject of county roads occupied
much thought on the part of the people or
much space in tne newspapers. Any timo
during a long dry summer and fall may be
considered unfavorable for the consideration
ofthesuhiect: but facts hold jrood resrard
less of westher and thoughtful people will
consider them and suspend their judgment
until the occurrence of the inevitable and
impressive object lessons afforded by the
The only objection ever urged against the
immediate commencement of permanent
road building is the cost and tms objection
is utterlv without force as an argument. A
little reasoning will convince any reasonable
person that our present roads are the most
expensive that could be devised. They cost
more than the best macadam and every per-
son who lives near or travels or transports a
load over one helps to pay the extravagant
cost of maintaining and using as well as ab-
staining from using our dirt roads esoecially
in wet seasons. If we take into consideration
the saving that good roads would effect in the
cost in time ana labor of transportation and
travel by the uso of good roads we find that
the amount is enormous and this is but one
element in tho calculation. To this must bo
added tho wear and tear of both teams and
vehicles; tho loss to farmers by their inabili-
ty to market their produce promptly; the
additional cost the larmers and others have
to pay for service of this kind which they re-
quire and the inevitable loss of one half the
timo devoted to such labor. Every county
in the State ought to enlist in a general for-
ward movement for better public highways.

Sheriff J. T. Newman of Sweet-
water arrested a man here Sunday
for carrying a pistol who he suspect-
ed of being on the dodge and who
admits he killed a man named Rich

man. He is now in jail on a charge

Hamilton county has been wired.
The marshal of Trenton shot a

Meadows with a double barreled
shotgun receiving three duck shot
in the fleshy part of his thigh. The
wound is not dangerous. Meadows
is in jail trying to give bond.
