Prescriptions Carefully Filled.
Concentration of Wealth.
At a recent conference on trusts
in the Cooper Union at New York
Dr. Heber Newton read a paper in
which the trusts were alluded to as
furnishing "dangers plain enough
to all thoughtful men." He said:
"Unless labor can organize on
the same gigantic scale (as the
trusts) it will be more at the mercy
of capital than ever. Hosts of
men will be thrown out of employ-
ment. The market being in con-
trol of a few hands, prices can be
forced up, at least temporarily.
Taxation beyond the dream of the
past .can be laid by private hands
upon the whole community—the
entire nation. The enormous
power of aggregated capital can
corrupt and debauch our congress.
An imperium in imperio, a gov-
ernment within a government, is
growing in our midst, irresponsi-
ble, autocratic, well-nigh omnipo-
tent—and, it must be said, too
"Here there are advantages in
the industrial system, and disad-
vantages, culminating in the most
unprecedented danger for our re-
publican institutions through the
jealousy inevitably excited by the
concentration of wealth on an
enormous scale into even fewer
bands, under a professed democ-
racy. What a revelation of the
spirit of our modern corporation
has been given within the last few
days in the astounding statements
of the profits of the Carnegie com-
pany last year and for the present
year—a company expecting to
make from $40,000,000 to $50,-
000,000 in the current year on a
capital of $25,000,000—to what
extent water we do not know—ask-
ing the state to tax the whole na-
tion under the guise of a tariff,
that it may be able to increase the
wages of its workingmen!"
Whatever may be the results of
the South African conflict, it has
served to bring before the public
eye a real statesman, a soldier and
a gentleman. It matters little
what side we may take in the un-
happy quarrel itself, we are all of
mind regarding the late General
Joubert; and if it were psssibl9 for
him today to look into the hearts
of his fellow men all tbe world
over, friend and foe alike, he
would see that which would stir
his rueged and chivalrous soul,
and, after his own homely fashion,
he would thank his creator for
having vouchsafed to him his
span of days upon this earth, and
to have permitted him to so order
his ways that in the hour of his
death all men lament his untime-
ly end and bow their heads in
reverence to his memory.
To have produced one citizen
like General Joubert is a finer
achievement than to have won a
thousand bloody victories upon the
field of battle. ' May this prove in
some measure a solace to the peo-
ple of the Transvaal in the hour of
their affliction.—Harper's Weekly,
Rosy cheeks, bright eyes and a
quick step can be secured by using
Dr. Simmons' Sarsaparilla. Tbe
peculiar feature, of this remedy is
that it strengthens and builds up
the system while it eradicates dis-
ease. Fifty cents and 50 doses.
Last Monday a straw-hatted,
glib-tongued fellow fell in with an
elderly man imprudent enough to
exhibit quite a sum of money. The
sharper "set-up" the drinks re-
peatedly and when he saw his
victim about ripe urged him to
gather his grip and follow to an
imaginary boarding house. At
about this time the sheriff happen-
ed along; no introduction followed,
but the fellow became suddenly
conscious that he was treading
upon dangerous ground, and dis-
appeared.—La Grange Journal.

A Dark Prediction.
An Associated Press dispatch
from Wichita, Kan., says: Allen
O. Myers, of Ohio, responding to
a toast tonight at the banquet of
the Sunflower League of Kansas,
following W. J. Bryan, created a
sensation by his utterances. Mr.
Bryan did not finish his speech
until after 1 o'clock this morning.
Mr. Myers drew a dark picture.
The country was fast racing to
destruction, said he, and Mark
Hanna, William McKinley and
Great Britain were driving it.
Then suddenly turning to Mr.
Bryan, the speaker exclaimed:
"You may be elected, sir, tyy a
million majority; but they will not
permit you to take the presidential
chair. Look at the fate of William
Goebel! Men whose pastime is
bribery, find in murder an amuse-
ment. Ohio was bought in 1896;
the country was bought; it will be
bought again in 1900—and Mark
Hanna's reward for it is a seat in
the United Stales senate.
"The masses of the country will
continue to permit the encroach-
ments on the classes," concluded
Mr. Myers, "until finally too late
for a restoration of rights by the
ballot. Then the sword and'gun,
violeuce, revolution—«a new order
Dr. Simmons' Sarsaparilla invi-
gorates the nervous system, tones
and strengthens the digestive or-
gans, and at the same time eradi-
cates disease. Fifty cents and 50
While on hisiwaj home from the
city, on Friday forenoon, one of
the mules of Oscar Rice who re-
sides a few miles north of town
stepped into a hole in the bridge
between Lena hill and the John
Taylor farm, breaking a leg in two
places. The commissioners' court
being in special session at the
time, Mr. Rice brought the matter
to its notice, and steps have been
taken for an adjustment. Those
who readily attach the blame for
the accident to the road overseer
should bear in mind that this class
of public servants—through the
fine manipulations of a legislature
—are not allowed a penny in com-
pensation.—La Grange Journal.
The household remedy is Hunt's
Lightning Oil. All aches and pains
quickly relieved. Satisfaction or
Texas to the Front.
The Dallas News, in referring to
the prosperous condition of affairs
in this state, points with pride to
the fact that several flouring mills
in Texas have recently received
orders for hundreds of thousands
of pounds of flour to be exported
to European countries. A recent
order was for 400,000 pounds of
Texas flour. The state has been
exporting flour for several years,
but recent orders have been for
greater quantities than usual.
Texas is making a name among
the nations of the world. She has
furnished some of the best fighting
soldiers in the American army in
the Philippines, and her industrial
and commercial army is winning
great victories also. * * * *
The little town of Rice in Navarro
county bids fair to rival Itasca in
its enterprise and quick action in
subscribing the necessary stock for
a cotton mill. Rice contains about
600 inhabitants. Mr. John B.
Haynie, a promoter of- the Cor^i-
cana cotton factory, one afternoon
started out to secure subscriptions
for the purpose of building a mill
at Rice, he heading the list with
$5,000. By 4 o'clock, without any
mass meeting" or demonstration of
any kind, $48,000 had been sub-
scribed with several of tbe most
prominent citizens still to be seen.
The prospects indicate that Bon-
ham will be among the first towns
in the state to have a cotton mill.
A list was circulated last week
among the citizens asking for sub-
scriptions to erect a first-class cot-
ton mill. The enterprise was
taken hold of in earnest by the
citizens, and in three days over
$100,000 had been subscribed,
with prospects of quite an addi-
tional sum. When Texas people
subscribe their money for the erec-
tion of mills, as they are doing in
many places throughout the state,
it will soon be seen that capitalists
and mill men in other states will
be willing to invest in Texas facto-
ries, because the people of the
state are showing their faith by
their works. The cotton mill cam-
paign is on in earnest, and the peo-
ple of the Lone Star state are'not
in the habit of letting anything
fail when they once undertake its
accomplishment. They have un-
dertaken to build up the state in-
dustrially, and they will do it.
Now is the time to strike.—Bren-
ham Weekly Banner.

r Unknown Heroes.
The man who does his duty as
he sees it, irrespective of conse-
quences, is a hero, and deserving
of just as much honor as the hero-
ism on the battlefield. Opportu-
nity makes heroes, we admit, but
at the same time heroes are not
always made. Every true man has
something of a hero in him, and
thousands go down to their graves
every year, unknown and unhonor-
ed, who, had the truth been known,
are worthy of a monument to their
memory. The moral is when you
see a man struggling for daily ex-
istence who, hampered by want
and adversity and the cruel rebuffs
of a pitiless and unseeing world,
encourage him with kind words
and the assurance of your help and
friendship and wish him Godspeed
and success in his undertaking.
By so doing you will not only ease
the burden of a weary existence,
but will plant a flower in the path-
way of a fellow mortal and earn
the title of a hero in its truest
We are in receipt of the first is-
sue of the Oil Mill Gazetteer, pub-
lished at Schulenburg by E. Goeth,
and edited by Gus. A. Baumgar-
ten. It is devoted to the oil mill
industry, and is well edited and
handsomely gotten up.—La Grange
Country and Town Boy.
The close observer is a witness
to the fact that the town or city
raised boy is lacking in courage
and in mental and physical streng-
th. The average town raised boy
is aimless and lazy. He is a money
spender and his morals are below
the danger line. His opportuni-
ties over the country boy to learn
knowledge are wasted. When 21
years old he cannot command a
responsible and paying position
for the reason that he is unfit for
the task. He does not know the
value of a dollar.
It is very different with the
country boy. He is honest, in-
dustrious and posseses common
sense which is rarely found in the
town boy. The mental and phy-
sical development of the country
boy is strong and durable. His
mind and body have grown so that
one supports the other. He has
been taught by example and ex-
perience the practical side of life.
He understands that he must
staud or fall on his own merit.
Sensible businessmen know that
the above is a true discription of
the town boy and the boy raised in
the country. Therefore when they
need clerks they prefer country
boys, and some business men will
not employ any other kind. The
boy raised in the country years
ago is now our business man of
Then is it not a mistake for the
farmer to move to town to "edu-
cate his children" as many of them
There is every reason why the
farmer boy should be proud of his
calling and proud of the fact that
he is not the aimless and the
characterless town dude, but a
solid and sensible young man.—
