government has taken steps to
prohibit the- exportation of wheat

One of the causes that move
Judge Lynch to execute a cer- j
tain class of criminals is not
fully understood by our Eastern
and Northern contemporaries
says the Austin Statesman. It
seems that the mighty wave of
indignation and wrath that
sweeps over every community
when a pure woman is violated
by one of these fiends should be
enough in some degree to palli-
ate the crime but there is
another cause for lynching and
this is the difficulty of obtaining
legal testimony of the guilt of
the accused. Although the fact
may be proven to a moral cer-
tainty and although there may
be no doubt of the commission of
the crime it is difficult for a re-
fined and virtuous woman to be
induced to testify to the facts
that the law demands.
There is no courtesy of the
prosecuting attorney that can
cover the immodesty of the in-
terrogatories he is compelled to
propound in order to obtain a le
gal conviction and the scene in
the court house becomes much
more embarrassing and totally
unbearable to a modest woman
when she is turned over to the
defence for cross-examination.
The women of- this State would
rather suffer death than go
through such an ordeal or remain
through life a martyr to her
modesty. This is well known to
those who are inflamed with re-
venge when a female in this
State suffers outrage and the
only certainty of meting out ad
equate punishment to the perpe
trator of such a crime is by the
court of Judge Lynch. The
modification of the law would be
an infringement on settled legal
principles that would disturb the
whole of our penal iurisDru-
dence and the only remedy after
all is to stamp 'out the crime in
some way or another.

says the Longview Times-Cla

short considerably but that
makes no difference so long as a
few northern and eastern dudes
who have more money than con
scientious scruples have the
power to set the price.
Farmers should have the same

Wbuldn't Marry a Mechanic.
A young man began visiting a
young woman and appeared to be
well pleased with her company.
One evening he called when it was
quite late which led the young
lady to enquire where he had been.
"I had to work tonight."
" What ! do you work for a liv-
ing?" she inquired in astonishment.
"Certainly replied the man; "I
am a mechanic."
''I dislike the name of mechanic"
and she turned up hor pretty nose.
Thrt was the last time the young
man visited the young woman. Ho
is now a wealthy man and has one
of the best women in the country
for his wife. Tno lady who dis-
liked "the uame of mechanic" is
uow the wife of a miserable sot a
regular vagrant about grogshops
and the soft verdent and miserable
girl is obliged to take in washing to
support herself and children.
Do you dislike the name me-
chanic you whose brothers are
nothing but well dressed loafers ?
We pity any girl who has so little
brains who is so green and so soft
as to think less of a young maD be-
cause he is a mechanic as the Son
of God himself was. Those girls
who dispise the young men who
work for a living are likely to be
menials to some of them tbeni
selves when adversity has humbled
tbeir pride and experience has
given them common sense.
Change in Operating Points.
In accordance with an order
received Friday the crew on
the Conroe branch will spend the
night here. Trains will be
operated direct from this place to
Springer instead of in both direc-
tions from Navasota as hereto-
fore and the train will leave
Brenham at 7 a. m. instead of
3 p. m. The change is made
necessary by the quarantine at
Navasota. However those who
know say that it will be made
It matters not from what cause the
blood becomes poisoned it is impossi-
ble for the doctors to effect a cure.
This class of disease has puzzled the
science of medicine for ages and the
same treatment that was employed
centuries ago is now prescribed. Pot-
ash and mercury are the component
parts of every doctor's prescription
for diseases of the blood.
Many of the so-called blood puri-
fiers are based on potash and mercury.
In fact S. S. S. (Swift's Specific) is
the only blood remedy that is guar-
anteed purely vegetable and is the
only one that contains no harmful
ingredients. S. S. S. is the only blood
remedy that cures real blood diseases
obstinate cases that physicians and
other remedies have failed to cure.
It never fails to cure a blood disease-
no matter how deep-seated the case.
Miss Bertha. Whitwood.
Mr. H. Kuhn of Marion Kansas;
"About three years ago my grand-
daughter Bertha Whitwood was
thrown from a horse receiving a
wound of the scalp. Under the treat-
ment of physicians the wound seemed
obstinate and for several months re-
mained about the same until it finally
became very angry looking and broke
out into a running sore. This soon
spread to other parts of the scalp and
ran down the side of the neck in-
creasing in severity and fearfully
