District Court Proceedings.
A union labor man thus humor-
ously and quite truthfully writes
to W. E. Farmer of the result of
the election in this county.
Wills Poiht, Nov. 9, 1888.—
Vcni vidi—chestnuts, we came,
went up to the log and got licked.
W6 marshaled our forces mounted
the political ladder two rounds at
a leap, perched ourselves on the
pinnacle of the dome of fame, un-
furled our banner to the breeze,
with our watch words inscribed
on its folds in letters of fire iis
large as the patches on a poor
man's pants, but to our astonish-
ment it read: Arkansas is our
home and Dennis is our name."
Before our breast we threw our
war-like shield and cried,, "lay on
McDuff," and our request was im-
mediately heeded, "McDuff laid
on." We wound up ourselves like
aWaterberry Watch, strengthened
our nerves, smoothed down our
wrinkled fronts and in thunder
tones, that went from the depths
of inflated souls, and sounded like
rumbling of many waters, which
aroused the natives from Brown
county on the north to Lower Hog
Theif on the south, and from Tick
Ridge on the west to Providence
on the east, we demanded a "free
ballot and an honest count." Our
demands were complied with be-
yond our most sanguine expecta-
tions. We found two where we
only expected one. We paused
caught our breaths, regaled the
inner man. taken in a few doses
of the inspiration of the spirits of
departed patriots, girded up our
loins, rallied our forces, and made
another charge on the breastworks
of bourbonism, with our eyes fixed
on the game looking neither to the
right nor the left, but with ami-
rnation in our bodies and inspira-
tion in our souls, we pushed for-
ward determined to "conquer
though we died." "Sink swin,
live or die," we sang. We reace-
ed the battle-field in great shape.
We fought bravely, sang gloriously
and swam like a rotten potatoe,
felt like a deserted Arab, and look-
ed like the lost tribe of Isreal.
Then a changc came ever the spirit
of our dreams, and while we stood
in silent bliss, meditatiing over the
past, realizing the present and con-
templating the future, we could
see our foes swimming over the
troubled waters, head up and tail

Pv< 9Mills, Tex., Nov. 14, 1888.
, ..Pine Mills is surely the happiest
precinct in the county over the
result of her home election. It was
chimed by our nairow-mindcd,
thjjck-skulled U. L. friends that the
box woiijd give Reed and Sham-
hurger a large majority. They
fjjought that the people would not
go back on their home men, but
o^r people were not to be led off to
for people who advocated
principles detrimental to tlie'inter-
ts 6f every true man. They were
tefmined to keep the "cattle"

the defeat of Cleveland and the
election of Ben Harrison. So m uch

Texas is siek of such raids as the
U. L. party has been making on her
society and institutions for the last
year or two, and we hope that the
last election has buried them to
rise no more.
I am sorry to see things as they
exist at Pine Mills. Our people
are arrayed against each other,
and society is dying rather than
building up. Our churches and
schools are being neglected and our
most vital interests are going unat-
