* * * To the young man who think , the
•vil of the world seems lo cell for modera height
erraotry, end the orgaaixation of e Round Table
ia every hamlet. The wrongs thet flourish un-
der the eon, the corruption of politics, the social
evil, a colony from the Inferno planted upon thin
fair farm, the oarth, the industrial iniquities, the
laborers robbed of their hire, the Mammon wor-
shipping of society, the preying potentates of
plutocracy, sin stalking in the city streets and in
the country lanes oppress the heart until many a
man vows to devote his life to reform.
But, as the young man grows older, be sees
that the burden of the world not imposed upon
his single shoulders. Reforming the world is a
task that the higher powers have in charge. It
is beyond the strength of the mortal whose life
is but a span and whose energy is limited even
in his few years. Kach man is required to do
his part and to do it well. We are not required
to achieve the impossible. The benediction,
"Well done, thou good and faithful servant," will
be pronounced upon those who have done the
best they could with what is intrusted to them.
The task of right living ia fulfilled when each
day's task is done. "Sufficient unto the day is
the evil thereof." Worry about our private af-
fairs is forbidden, as well as about the affairs of
the world at large. Work, not worry is the com*
mandment. Each man is but a player required
to play his part. No one of us is manager of the

larly are about as little known and understood as
the name and political leanings of the next Dem-
ocratic nominee for the presidency.
Thk Houston papers have kicked so much
about the wet weather that this stuff has been
aichnamed "Houston weather" all over the state.
If they are going to claim it, we certainly wish
they would keep it at home.
The comiog chy election seems to be arousing
le interest already, the marshal's race, as
■al, being the main one. There are five candi*
dates out so far, and more to follow. The mu-
nificent salary must be the attraction.
We are again consoling ourselves with the
thought that the continued wet weather is killing
out the boll weevil in this section, the theory that
constant rain and cold weather destroys them
having not as yet been disproven. We hope so,
nnd if wet weather will kill them, they surely
ought to be scarce by this time.
Every business man in town is in favor of bav*
ing the main street macadamized before another
winter, but the question is, where is the money
coming from? Some one can become a public
benefactor by suggesting a way to meet this er8 that made grand stand play* last June, pray
lieve the temporary famine in wood lias been ap-
preciated by many of the citizcnn of Caldwell
during the past two week*. It should be appre-
ciated by the farmers who haul wood to town
also, as it enable* them to sell it in the long run,
as they will replace the wood for the Lowry peo-
ple. If it had not been for this wood it would
have been necessary to have shipped in wood
from outside point* at a higher price, and the
sale of a hundred cords or mor would have been
lost to the farmers who have, wood to sell in good
Dispatchks from New York, under date of
Tuesday state that "very close friend " of Bry-
an say that in case the Democrats nominate a
man for president from the opposing faction in
the party he will lead a bolt from the o!d party.
This is all bombast, and the result* will show
that. Bryan is not made of that kind of material.
It certainly is remarkable that the republican*
are still fighting Bryan all the time, when they
proclaimed him dead year* ago. While it it noi
believed that he will ever be a candidate for
president again, yet be seem* to be feared more
by the party in power than any other man in the
Democratic party. Rather a *trangc condition of
affairs, to say the least of it.
Jvst asa mild reminder—why don't the preach-
problem. This street ought to be graded and a
good, solid pavement put down, and there ought
to be some way devised to do it this year.
The great negro evangelist, Sinkiller Griffin, is
holding a meeting in Houston, and proposes to
chase the devil all the way to deep wr.ter. Sin*
hiller is like some of of the white evangelists, be
it very food of chasiog the devil out at so much
per chase, and be generally gets a good divy for
bia work. If the big collectione were left out of
evangeliam we predict that evangelists would be
ncarcer than sunshine io Caldwell the past six
Theme is no reaeon why any progressive busi-
ness man or employe should not become a mem-
ber of the Buainess League of Caldwell. While
the work of this organisation baa been under dif*
Acuities so far, vet it has been productive of good
reunite, and as the people get used to working io
thin way it will accomplish a great deal. A good
bneineee organization is one of the most impor-
tant factors in the upbuilding of a town, and this
movement ought to be pushed along by everybody
alike. There waa bound to be some difficulty in
starting off, but now that the organization ia
feirljr started and doing good work all the skep-
tics should put their shoulders to the wheel and
w momentum to the car of progresa,
of Caldwell, "Jail ¡k," "forward march."
ing for rain and claiming the credit therefor
when it came, put in a few earnest, well chosen
word* for a spell of dry weather? The situation
is rapidly assuming the proportion* of a calamity,
and it would seem a little strange, to put it mild-
ly, that they should delay putting in such a peti-
tion for another six weeks. After the corn was
all burned up last year the praying began, and
we would kindly *ubmit that if will be unwise
to wait until all the harm h * been done that is
pn**ible before beginning. We would hate to
think our prayers could render such a great ser-
vice to the people of this section—and then with-
The Houston Post and the Chronicle arc in-
dulgiog in a controversy over the merits of their
respective papers that may be very interesting to
them, but is rather tiresome to the public. It is
strange that two papers of the standing of the
Houston contemporaries should have failed to
learn that it is much better to wash their dirty
linen in private. If rival enterprises in every
line were privileged to vilify each other in public
print, us some papers seem to think it their duty
to do, the publications of the day would be a
sorry product, indeed. There is always room for
more than one good paper in a city the size of
Houstoo, and they should pull for the city snd
work in bsrmony snd not sttempt to destroy or
belittle cach other at the expense of the town.
