If all the money osad in building

tho world would think there was
Christianity on the earth. Pure and
tindcHlod religion is. you know what.
Strang'. fallacy tMs, and stranger
still that it will be received as truth
(by many people. It would be just a-s
sensible to argue that if all the mon-
ey invested in railroads and steam
ship lines should be taken out and
given to the men employed in these
«ntcrprlaes that it would increase the
•commerce of the country. Instead of
increasing it would destroy a great
If all the money now Invested <n
churoh property and spent in church
■work should be taken to buy clothing
and f ind n.'id shelter for th-? naked
and hungry and bumeless, the rea1
result would not be ¡in increase o '
Christianity, tout generations not far
(removed would And themselves not
only without Christianity but with a
vastly increased hord of (mendicants
and beggars who had been made such
Iby mistaken charity and who would
ar.ock God and defy man.
Go to whatevei land' umdw 'the sain
you fwill and where yotf And the
most christian churches ant) the most
ipreachers, teachers and church work-
ers, there will you Ami the greatest
•work being dione to alleviate the suf-
ferings of hungry and naked children.
There you will find the ibest and most
(numerous homes lor orphans, hos-
pitals for the sick, the blind, the
dleaif, and whoever is unfortunate. You
find these things because they are
(iho results of the teaching of the
tnen who fill the churdios, and who
go there for instruction, for Inspira-
tion, encouragement and for worship.
Once u'pon a time, so the fnible
goes, there was a msui who owned a
goose that laid a golden egg overy
day, and her owner profited thereby.
But one day he grew impatient and
thought, to secure all the eggs at
once by killing the got^e. But lo!
•when he had killed her he found no
Btorc of golden eggs, but on the ol.hor
hand found that he haxl destroyed the
source f'r.m which the eggs he had
been rec|lvlmg came to him.
Tho man who tlilnlks it would be
wise to help the poor by taking all
support from the churches and from
fill missionary effort shows his wis-
dom in exactly the same wtay as the
man who killed the goose that laid
(he golden egg—Bonham News.

Ttvas farmers are not living on
coodi .-.sed milk and canned meats

they are not raising hogs to the ex-
u-jit tha: they should. Perhaps they
re not raising as much com and
forage as they should, not a3 large
quantities of peas and potatoes, (out
it is not too late to begin. After they
have gathered the peas and potatoes
there will still be left fine forage for
the hogs if the hogi are there, and
the profits on the hogs will amount
to -íomething handsome. A word to
the wise ought to be sufiicient to in-
duce the raising of more hegs.
REASONS FOR RAISING MORE
With hogs selling above 9 cents a
pound on the hoof In the Texas
markets and as high tus 10 cents In

BRYAN ON PROHIBITION.
"The .ig'at of the government to
reg'iate the sale of liquor can not
be questioned, nor the right to regu
Irvt "í or to prohibit the open saloon
"The liq-ior que-tion has been
made acute in Nebraska by the un
ccrapulou9ntss of th; liquor interests
Instead of the saloon of former days,
owned by a resident and amenable fco
jome extent at least to the sentiment
of the community, we have Ilia
branch saloon, ovs eued aud operated
by a produc'.'r of liquor. This sys-
tem adds the evils of the trust system
to the e vils or the salocn itself. When
ever a community attempts to deal
wiih the salejon question, instead of
having to deal with one of its own
citizens, it finds Itself In a struggle
with great corporations wliich oper-
ate over a large area and have a pe-
cuniary Interest in cultivating the ap-
petite for drinking.
'The saloon—not every one, but
as a rule—is an alliance with vice,
It is constantly u$pd to debauch poli-
tics. The liquor interests interfere
In all matters that may even remotely
affect their interests. They made
themselves odious at the last session
of the Nebraska legislature. The
democrats had a majority in both
branches for the first time in the
state's history, and this spendid rec-
ord of the legislature has but one
blot upon It, and that blot was put
there (by the liquor Interests.
"They controlled enough senators
to prevent tho submission of the in-
itiative and referendum
"The democratic party can not af-
ford to act as the mouthpiece of tho
liquor Interests. It can have noth-
ing In common with the selfish, .mer-
cenary and conscienceless crusade
that the liquor Interests have organ-
ized against the home and the state,
against private virtue and public
morals."—W. J. Bryan.

No community ought to permit pol

If tho prohibitionists of Texas are
sincere In their profession, and really
want state-wide prohibition, it ap
pears to us that they should support
Hon. Cone Johnson for governor. In
our humble judgment, the antis will
have a sufficient number erf mem-
bers in the next legislature to defeat
submission, and in that event, with
either Poindexter or Davldison as gov
ernor, there would be no chance for
statutory prohibition, for the reason
that either, of these gentlemen would
veto such a law if It should be passed
by the legislature. Mr. Polnelextei
would veto it for the reason he toe-
Heves statutory prohibition is uncon-
stitutional, and Mr. Davidson being
an antl would veto it because he Is
opposed to prohibition In any form.
Therefore the antis would have prohi-
bition defeated by the election of
either Pol:idexter, Davidson or Col-
quitt. As we see the situation, the
prohibitionists should 'support Cone
Johnson. That is if they expect to
have prohibition in the near future,
Every prohibitionist who vr.tes for
either Mr. Davidson or Judge Poin-
doxter increases the chances of Mr
Colquitt's election. We may be mis
taken, but that is the way we see It,
♦ * *
The Houston Post has come out
squarely in support of O. B. Colquitt
for governor. Gradually the newspa-
pers are coming out from the dazed
condition In which the gubernatorial
muddle and its perplexities have plac
ed then; and are announcing their
preference. Tills would Indicate that
the idea is about to settle upon the
fraernity that there will be no more
side-3tepping; that the present entries
will stay to a finish and that a chioico
must be made from the quartette now
claiming the attention of the people.
But Dr. Rankin hasn't lit yet.—Corsl-
* * ♦
Tom Jones of Tyler has announced
that he will support Polndexter. In
spite of this, however, there are many
features of Polndex-ter's candidacy
that should appeal to the voter.—
Wichita Falls Times.
* * *
Beyond a question of a doubt, Dr.
Rankin Is doing more to solidify the
Colquitt vote than any other eme man
with the possible exception of Mr.
Colquitt's campaign manager. Douibt-
less he has an object In doing this,
but just whait it is, is difficult for the
ordinary reader of his paper, the
Home and State,' to define. Same say
that next to sitate-wlde prohibition,
the paramount issue with Dr. Ranikln
Is Balleyism; others say he would
rather see state-wide prohibition de-
feated than win by placing In the gov-
ernorship a man opposed to Senator
Bailey. One thing is plain to the av-
erage observeiv and that is the fact
that neither Johnson nor Poindiexter
can win if they tooth run through. An-
other thing Is jsut as plain, and that
Is that Judge Polndexter, while an
able man and a consistent prohibi-
tionist, la unpopular and will poll the
smallest vote of any of the four prom-
inent candidates. He certainly is in
a position to know those facts, and it
begins to look as If he was In tho
ace more for the purpose oí defeat-
ing Johnson than the possible elec-
tion of himself.—Wichita Falls Her-
