Times is not going to permit itself to be
used as a 'medium through which to pull
chestnuts from the fire that may not be
quite ripe for the pulling. It often sees
tiling:! going on which look suspicious
and which it . would like to denounce
through its columns as pure "fakes"'
"frauds." or "gum games" but under the
libel law of Texas reputable newspapers
will not indulge in such pastime unless it
knows beyond nj- question of doubt that
what it prints aidputs into circulation
are facts. With all 2ilue respect to its
learned critics it begs t say that while it

would willingly publish an untruth or malic-

drastic libel law in Texas. fc the iiewsnatier

A PRAIRIE MOOD.
AM grown stalwart in a singfe morn.
No more am I the pigmy think I was
The shrunk-soulcd weakling of a camping age
But loosed from that warped shell of littleness
Which was my Self's accustomed habitude
Full-pulsed steel-sinewed ruddy-hearted I
Grown broad and strong as these brave plains that stretch
Majestic vast to far infinitude's
Grown lofty-statured as the 'dim bint dome
Ofssky that scans the world. A Titan I!
The sun hath claimed my camradeship: this morn
While purple courtiers thronged his eastern gate
Ilc'spoke me fcllowly; my soul this night
Shall hold rapt converse with the tongu-ed spheres
And sit in council with the solemn stars.
Let come what chance another day may bring
To forge and shape new shackles for my soul.
I am grown strong to snap them: for this day
A creeping worldling walks erect a god!

Success is a curious maverick. While a favored few coax
it into their personal corrals with half-a-handful of manipula-

before some other chap spurs in and claims it.

Must men be made better? At present all they do is to
promise you a good life if you leading a bad life fight with
other men overthrow them by force and kill them in order to
attain better conditions of life that is. you are promised a
better life if you become worse than you are. That is a delus-
ion. There is only one way to attain a better life and that is
to become a better man.
