I notice in the Texas Christian
Advocate, a resolution adopted by
the District Conference at Gaines-
ville, denouncing calisthenic exer-
cises in schools. Why these good
people should turn their pious
batteries aloose on such healthful
exercises is a poser which few
people who have witnessed tliem
will be able to understand. The
idea that it tends to cultivate a
passion for dancing is simply ab-
surd. But one thing it does do;
it gives a grace and ease of motion
and a healthful appearance to our
girls that one never sees among
the moping crowds where long
faces and woful looks are present-
ed as evidences of piety. To be
frank about the matter, I fear that
these ultra religious fanaticisms
are having much to do with keep-
ing thinking men and women out
of our churches, and cause young
people to regard religion more in
the light of imprisonment than of
One would suspect from the
tone of the resolutions referred to,
that they emenated from the brain
of a man who would think it a sin
to celebrate the 4th of July.
It does seem strange, in this en-
lightened age, that there should
remain so much of Puritan prim-
ness, and those who love religion
for religion's sake, are worried
that a few persons who cannot
comprehend that others than them-
selves are possessed of any virtues,
are continually attempting to nar-
row down the freedom of the
young, and are thus driving them
into infidelity, and in many in-
SLaiiC«.s IU tfiC-~tft.-jJi.tio uf 1 ulii. ;
Christianity, if understood by
this writer, is of an ennobling, ele-
vating nature, and that there is no
room within its borders for selfish-
ness, but it is a matter of sincere
regret that there are so many who
seem to think that the moment
one becomes a church member,
that he must elongate his face,
slacken his gait, and invite con-
sumption and kindred complaints
to come and carry him off, a pre-
mature victim to the graveyard.
Calisthenic exercises, such as
were witnessed by our people ai
the close of the public schools,
certainly have no tendency toward
immorality. There was no
mingling of the sexes, and if there
was an old person in the house,
church member or not, who did
not feel proud of his daughter's
appearance, then they looked and

Fodder Pulling, Rag Weeds, Evolution,
I don't believe in fodder pull-
ing, though it is the veiy best for-
age for a horse or a milk cow in
the world, and is always worth
more than it brings. I think the
corn ought to be sowed or drilled
like wheat and cut down in the
same way, and that would get rid
of the worst part of old fashioned
fodder pulling and give ten times
as much forage for the same
amount of manual labor. One of
my nabors, who is regarded as the
best farmer in the settlement, is
now mowing down a mixture of
rag weeds and crab grass that fol-
lowed his wheat crop, and he says
it's good ruffness for stock, and
they will clean it all up, for they
love a varyagated food jutt like
folks. Well, I am glad to know
it, and I'm going to do likewise
and let your farming editor know
the result, for if there's any virtue
in rag weeds, everybody ought to
know it—especially the farmers
ahout IVIarnn who have been
feeding on dog fennel so long
their cattle have all turned yaller,
and they are selling 'em off as full
blooded Jerseys. I always thought
that rag weeds and crab gcass was
ordained to follow small grain and
shade the ground from the sum-
mer's sun, but I did not know
where it come from under certain
circumstances. It is all an unex-
plored wilderness to me. Last
year there wasn't a rag weed in
my corn, and a mighty little grass,
and I sowed wheat up'>n the land
and now the weeds are about five
feet high all over it, and so thick
you can't walk through 'em, and I
want to know where they
from. About a month ago I cut
some of the weeds down and the
grass come up just as rank and
thick, and I'm mowin' it for hay,
and I would like to know where
the grass come from. Last year
there was not a morning glory in
my clover field, and now its full of
'em, and I want to ki>o\y how they
got there. In the Spring I graded
off a little rise in my front yard
and dug down two feet into the
clay and slate, and left it too
grew anywhere but in conquered
countries. One thing is certain, it
come all of a sudden, and come
everywhere at once, and it's a
conundrum the agricultural bureau
has let alone. It's a great blessing
to this impoverished land, and its
origin is no accident. I think the
legislature ought to give the
bureau another term to investigate
these mysteries and determine
whether these things spontane or
do not spontane—and where the
army worm conies from, and when
they are coming, and how to stop
'em when they do come, for they
eat up all my nabor's fodder, and
about this time yesterday I wished
they had eat up mine.
Sam Jones' Gems.
People in the eastern States
have queer notions about Texas.
This year a terrible drouth has
prevailed in Western Texas, and
the newspapers of the East are
now representing the whole State
as being parched and barren and
her people on the verge of starva-
sider the vast size of the State,
nor do they seem to realize that
while the far West is always dry
there are parts of Texas that often
have too much rain. A drouth at
El Paso has about the same rela-
tion to the agricultural interests of
Texas as a drouth in Colorado or
Utah. It is farther from Texarka-
na, Texas, to EI Paso, Texas, than
from Texarkana to either one of
the following States : Minnesota,
Wisponsin. Michigan, Ohio, Vir-
ginia, West Virginia, North or
South Carolina, Georgia or Flori-
da. Yet some eastern people,
reading of the drouth in West !
come : yexaSi will be frightened leit their ■
relatives, who may happen to live
in Texarkana, should come to
want. But they need not be un-
easy. The great farming regions
of Texas, vyith the exception of a
few western counties, are making
good crops. As usual, Texas will
produce more corn and cotton this
year than any other Southern

sickly couiitrv it is. and people
imagmc the whole tjtate to be a
death-hole. They do not stop to
consider that Texas extends from
Louisiana and the Gulf to the
Rocky Mountains and that a large
portion of it is an elevated, well-
drained country, with the climate
of Kansas and Colorado. A few
years ago a friend of ours, who
lived in Iowa, wanted to visit Tex-
as, but he was afraid to come be-

cane-brake coming up in a new
place, and canes don't blossom
nor bear seed. How did they get
there? Maybe all these things
spontane according to the new
fangled doctrine of evolution; and
if so, then I reckon I'm an evolu^-
tioner, for I'm obliged to believe
that under certain conditions of
soil and atmosphere plants can
originate themselves without seed.
The other day I locked up a piece
of cheese where a fly couldn't find
it, but the mites got into it some
way from the inside and worked
out, so it seems to me if animals
can develop without ancestors
vegetable life can do the same
But I don't believe that a hair
from a black mare's tail will turn
into a snake if you put it in the
branch. I dqn/t believe that a man
ever came from a monkey, for
they both are just like what they
were as far back as history runs,
and havn't made very much im-
provement, if any. I am not that
sort of an evolutioner. I don't
believe that the jumpi ? kangaroo
swum all the way from Noah's
Ark to the Island of Australia, or
that every sort of a man descended
from Shem, Ham and Japhet; but
I do believe that nature furnishes
her own restorers, and all
these weeds that follow the crops
come up without seed just as
natural as original sin follows the
hufhan family. The first year after
the war a new fcimj of clover come
up all over the land and covered
it like a new carpet, and nobody
ever found out where it come
from or how it got here. Some
said the Yankee cavalry brought
it in their oats, and so me said'it
was blown here in a storm, and an
old Irishman tol$ jne it come
from Erin by instinct, for it never
to the extreme northern part of
Texas than from Mobile to Chica-
These observations explain why
there are so many conflicting re-
ports in the older States concern-
ing Teijag, Correspondents and
visitors describe the portions they
happen ^to see, truthfully perhaps,
but different men see different
sections. Some say it is a dry
country and some wet. Some
class it as rich and prosperous and
others as poor i^nd God-forsaken.
With soriie it is healthy and with
others sickly, and so on. The
fact is that Texas is almost every-
thing. The immigrant can find

willing to honor all who are worthy
f!} all other avocations and proles
sions, we adopt the sentiment of
Gen. Washington that "agriculture
is the most healthful, the most
useful and the noblest employment
of manf" and in maintaining that
sentiment we demand the fyiore
liberal education of our children,
the establishment of agricultural,
mechanical and scientific school
and the founding of public libraries
in eVery county. As farmers are
the IjQfle ancf sinew, so they may

Recently Rev. Sam Jones lec-
tured in the amphitheatre on the
Chautauqua Assembly grounds,
near Lakewood, New York. He
chose for his text the ninth verse,
third chapter, first epistle general
of St. John. He dwelt upon the
lives of the church members of
to-day and attacked the social
amusements and pleasures of the
Among the gems and bright
sayings that fell from the lips of
the noted evangelist during his
address were the following :
"When I get to heaven with my
crown and harp I don't care about
heavenly recognition. I am all
fixed. We want a little more
heaven here in New York and on
If we go home and consecrate
ourselves and obey the ten com-
mandments we needn't go to

Is there any harm in dancing?
Dance all you want to, for where
you are going it will be too warm
to dance. Play cards day and
night, for cards won't stand fire

1 used to dance, but was never idiot
enough to play cards. You can't
find a lunatic asylum in America
unless you find a deck of cards in

themselves with cards because
they are idiots. The camps of
soldiers and battle fields are cov-

her cards too,

The Great Temperance Lecturer.
Harry Watkins, the reformed
drunkard, and great temperance
evangelist, has been a citizen of
our town for the past fourteen
years. He is certainly the wonder
of Texas, and has been called the
"wit of the West." Was born of
poor parents near Murfreesboro,
Tenn., and began to look out for
himself in early life. When a
beardless boy only thirteen, he
landed here without education or
money, but was very attractive and
his oddities gained for him many
warm friends and admirers for his
personal character. In his nature
he was congenial and liberal, full
of pluck and energy, and soon
began to accumulate. After mak-
ing a little fortune he contracted
the habit of social drinking, which
led to his ruin and degradation.
He was the most notorious charac-
ter in all the land, was tried for
some crime before every justice
and district court while the name
of desperado was fashionable in
Western Texas. On one-occasion
li c\ mof ■ vttvf CttlU
made, at the point of his pistol,
one pat and whistle while the other
four danced. Dissipation led him
on to ruin until he was incarcerated
in Fort Worth jail, where he suffer-
ed for two months the hardships
of a prison life, was brought back
here a prisoner and released on
bond for assault with intent to
murder. He was a while a tramp,
wandering from town to town
depending on his witticisms and
songs for his whsky.
The young man began to realize
his condition, sobered up again,
becamo a gentleman, paid up his
old debts and engaged in the mer-
cantile business His sudden rise
and his genera), qualifications was
a mystery, even to his intimate
friends, as he was never educated
and had 110 assistance from any
one. For two years he was sober,
did an extensive business, lived in
.style and commanded the esteem
and confidence of all who knew |
him, when he again fell and went
to utter ruin, was away from home
penniless and had delirium
tremens some half do*en times.
Some four months ago the
young man again returned to the
guide of his youth sobered up and
began to lecture, reciting his own
sad experience in intemperance, j
and bo it 2-\iq to his honor, that he |
never fails to hnld iu'c .nidienc# i
spell-bound, and with but a short
experience and no education
he is called by the
leading papers of Texas
the eloquent extemporaneous
speaker of America, and on sev-
eral occasions he has had an
audience of some 3000, and has
wielded great good in the cause.
