Assistant Adjuhmt Genural
The report that a company of Italians have
settled near Palestine with a view of engog
ing in grape culture serves to recall attention
to the fact that portions of Texas posssess all
the physical requirements indispensably ne-
cessary to the successful pursuit of that voo
tion. The profitsjaccrulng would be enormous
for the tendency at present is to favor pure
native wines in preference to high-priced im-
portations about the quality of which there
is always more or less doubt. If we give
proper attention to viticultural pursuits their
extent and character may in a few years entitle
them to rank with the present great industries
of the State.
A Telephone Monopoly Scouted.
From thu St. Louis GIobe-Deuiocnit.
A dispatch appearing in the morning papers
yesieroay loinecucci inai me western union
Telegraph company and Jay Gould were
scheming to cot possession of the telephone
companies of the country by certain stock-
jobbing manipulations a reporter yesterday
called upon Mr. Durant General Manager of
inc DCli 1 cicinuiic tumpaiiy ui 11115 ciiy 10
ascertain if there was any truth in the state
ment. Mr. Durant slated that he placed no
credence in the rumor and that he was confi
dent that it was not true from the simple fact
that the telephone interests of the country
wtr 10 1 vancu m scaucrco 10 ue laxen in
by such a scheme. If there was one manace
ment such a proposition might be possible
Tnere were however several distinct comnan-
les. There were four sei arate companies in
Mis'ouit and at least 125 in other parts of
the United State' making it almos' impossible
according to his views of Ihe matter for a
' combination to obtain possession of the entire
telephone system 01 uie country. Alr.Uurand
I also added incidentallp. that he did not take
I much stock in a statement in a special to the
I Globe-Democrat Irom Cleveland 0 that
telephone connection had bten cstablsHed
bctwi en Cleveland and New York City He
vixs not prepared to siy that such a thing was
imp ricf nui me ambits appcarcu 10 nave
been wrtlen wllh the view of advertising a
certain kind of wire.
A Crisis la Civilization.
Do you think human nature has improved
in all these thousands of years ? Do you think
men are really anv wiser or better or stronger
thtn they were thousands ol years ago T Take
your Greek statue and you have as fine an ex-
pression of the human face as you can find to-
diy. Take what has comedown to us of their
eloquence of their generalship and you will
Unci them not inferior to the men of the day.
Yet their civilization perished as civilizations
before theirs perished torn to pieces by
lorces generated by the growth of iniquity.
And the same Question Is beine presented to
m now in this century as it was presented to
them. Vc must in some way stop the progress
of this equality; we must tind some way of
c iming back to the natural plane or we will he
overthrown. All this disquiet which moves
the world means something; it means that the
time is almost here II it has not already come
when our civilization must take that move
forward or go down.
A Buffalo man had a dream the other night.
in which he witnessed a fire-drill in a public
school of that city. When the alarm rani? out
every teacher and pupil was instantly in the
proper place. Just as the signal "go" was
given a bad boy Buffalo claims to have one
or two bad boys shouted: "My what a rat 1"
witli a yell that would make a band of Indians
white with envy every teacher was on the
benches followed by every girl in school.
