sure to appear in the issues for
which they are intended.—Ed.
By reason of the irregularities
of the mails on acconnt of the
swollen streams and muddy
roads, many of our correspon-

To The Belton Democrat:
I see so many correspondents
from many points in Bell county,
my old home, I take pleasure in
writing a few lines from this part
of the State.
This country has had plenty of
rain this winter and spring and the
heaviest rain of the season fell the
tenth of this month.
The farmers have fine prospects
for large grain crops this year. Oats
and wheat are fine.
Mrs. E. J. Starnes is visiting her
daughter, Mrs. D. N. Clark of San
Gabriel, Milam county.
Mr. W. H. Cochran of the Junc-
tion is sick suffering from a severe
cold and cough.
Mr. L. Moser, the Junction sec-
tion boss, just returned from Green-
ville and reports fine prospects for
good crops in Hunt county.
The recent heavy rain has filled
the Big Junction rail road tank.
The farmers in Coleman county
have their land ready to plant cot-
ton as soon as the ground is dry
enough and the prospects are good
for a big crop of cotton this year.

ed a Democrat reporter Tuesday
that high water in the Leon river
swept away the bridge over the
stream on the Howard and Cow<
house road last Monday night
about'ten o'clock. This bridge
is known as the Whitely bridge
and is situated in the corner of
Belton, Temple and Killeen pre
Moses Alien Preached.
Moses Allen, the negro evan-
gelist, preached on the street
Monday to quite a large audience.
Moses was very logical at times
in conclusions drawn from com-
parison, as in the case of Namon
when, through his servant he
was commanded to go wash in
the river Jordan. Moses said
'Naman was a rich man and was
very sore with leprosy. When
he decided to go to the river of
Jordan, all things for the trip
were made ready and they en-
tered the trip with the pomp and
style befitting the rich man that
he was. Then Moses applied
this in this manner. Should a
richman die his body would prob-
ably be held two or three days
before burial and when the time
came to be put away, the proces-
sion would travel to the cemetery
so slow that it could hardly be
seen moving, but when the poor
man died, if it happened in the
morning he would be buried in
the afternoon and the horses to
the hearse would be going at a
gallop. What impressed him in
in this was, that perhaps these
men were going to the same
place and the only difference,
the poor man was rushed in just
a little faster.
His advice to boys as to break-
ing the laws of the country was
good. He paid his respects to
the drinking of whiskey without
jumping on the saloonkeeper.
The stress was laid oh the evil
coming from drinking whiskey
rather than selling. He support-
ed this declaration by declaring
that every man should and could
quit any habit that hurt him
physically, mentally and finan-
cially. Throughout his dicourse
he made several striking illustra-
tions which seemed to be much
enjoyed by his hearers.
Communication from T. P. Robinson.
Prof. D. A. Saunders, of Waco,
special agent of plant breeding
for the department of agricul-
ture, cotton department, came
down to Bartlett last Friday, the
10th and assisted Mr. T. P. Rob-
inson in planting the numerous
p- - ^ m - ' .1 • mm.--.I. ' -.
work. This work consists of
crossing cotton by polanating the
blooms and thereby producing
new varieties, and the result thus
far is most gratifying. The ex-
perimental farm of Mr. Robin-
son's is the only one of its kind
in this part of the country. The
farmers of the country will be
benefitted by this work through
congressional seed distribution,
and will have to be reccommend-
ed in order to get the seed. Mr.
Robinson has the power of rec-
comendation for all deserving
farmers who will care for the
seed so as to benefit themselves
and their country.
Mr. T. P. Robinson of Bartlett
reports that this is the best
honey bee year since 1897, just
eleven years ago this season.
The bees are breeding up re-
markably fast and and excess of
swarming will result in a few
days if no disaster overtakes the
bees. The prospects for a great
honey yield was never better.
Mr. Robinson is evidently Bell
county's bee king or probably of
all Texas north of San Antonio as
he has more than 400 colonies of
bees, at present and is putting in
more bees and proceeding with
general improvements. He will
receive in a few days a shipment
of 25 pure Italian queens that
he will use for breeding and re-
queening. His apiaries will turn
out anywhere from 15 to 30 tons

Change of Speech.
Elisha Embree in speaking of
his move to Bisbee, Ariz., said
that when the move was made
they took with them the parrot,
and before they went, the parrot
would call Mrs. Embree "Emma"
but after they reached Bisbee
and during all the time they lived
there, (about fifteen months) the
bird would call Mrs. Embree,
"mother," and since their return
to Belton, "polly" has taken up
its old language and in address-
ing Mrs. Embree calls her
Emma. "It is supposed that the
parrot hears some one here
using "Emma" in speaking to
Mrs. Embree and did not hear it
Negro Boy Drowned.
Last Tuesdry evening about 4
o'clock, George Davis, a negro
boy about ten years old, was at
Ed Puddy's slaughter pen help-
ing to butcher. Mr. Utley, who
butchers at that place, sent his
son and the negro boy to Nolan
creek after a barrel of water.
The boys went to their usual
place in the creek and as was
their custom, they drove in the
team and wagon in order to fill
the barrel. The creek recent-
ly having been on a rise the Chan-
pell had washed out unknown to

swimming water. Hie negro
boy became frightenedand jump-
ed from the wagon and drowned
almost instantly. The little
Utely boy remained in the wagon
and by so doing saved his life.
The mules finally swam until
they could reach bottom and then
brought the Utely boy and wagon
safe to land. Fred Wellhausen
going from the stock pen down
to the boys, succeeded in remov-
ing the body of the negro boy
from the creek.

Dr. J. R. Rncker Dead.
News came to Belton last Sun-
day of the death of Dr. J. R.
Rucker of Temple. It is stated
by one of our Belton citizens that
on Saturday eyening just after
the discussion which took place
in Temple, he met Dr. Rucker
and the doctor then was com-
plaining of a severe headache.
It is supposed that to relieve his
suffering he procured and used
chloroform as he generally did
for this trouble, and by accident
used too much. On Sunday
morning he was found to have
died in his room sometime during
