Such Munifloenoe !
Hon. O. M. Hollingsworth was
lately in St. Louis, and while there
was invited to deliver a lecture be-
fore persons interested in education.
He gave, says the Republican, "an
interesting sketch of the school sys'
tem and public education in Texas."
from which we extract the follow-
ing : -
He stated that erroneous impres-
sions had been spread abroad inim-
ical to the interests of the state and
its institutions; the people of the
state have been represented as op-
posed to universal education, and that
there were no public schools. >< To
disabuse the Eastern people ot these
gross aspersions, he visited Boston,
where he gave a lecture showing the
condition of matters. He showed
that public education itl Texas was
coeval with the birth of the republic
and the establishment of the state,
for in the declaration of independ-
ence, in 1836, one of the causes as-
signed which impelled them to the
course, was the failure of the Mexi-
can government to make suitable
provision for free education. After
biiefly narrating the successive acts
adopted for fostering the common
school interests, he said that under
the constitution of 1877, and tne
laws passed in pursuance thereof,
one-half of the unappropriated public
domain was set apart for the perma-
nentendowmentof public schools and
one million acres reserved for the es-
tablishment and maintenance of a
state university and a college or
branch university for the benefit of
the colored population—thus secur-
ing for this fund 1,221,400 acres of
land, 119,906 of which are located
in the populous counties of Grayson,
Fannin, Collin, Cooke, Hunt, Calla-
han, Lamar, McLennan, Shackel-
ford, comprising some of the richest
and most fertile lands in the state.
The remaining 1,000,000 acres have
recently been located in Tom Green
county, unsurpassed for grazing fa-
cilities. As a result of this wise
policy Texas points with pride to
her common free school domain of
17,7x2 acres to each county, under
the exclusive control of the county
school authorities ; to 1,221,300 acres
for the erection and endowment of a
state university ; to $3,500,000 as a
permanent interest cash fund to-day
in her treasury ; to $407,906 acres
for the support of her lunatic asylum
and maintenance of her institutions
for the blind and dumb; to 50,000,-
000 acres as a permanent basis lor
the support of her common free
schools; so that each organized
county in the state—160 in number
—holds in fee simple lands equal in
territory to one-fifth part of tiie ter-
ritory of Rhode Island. Her uni-
versity lands equal the territory of
Delaware, while the common school
lands held in tru6t compose a terri-
tory larger by 6,000,000 acres than
all the New England States com-
bined, and an aggregation of all the
school and asylum lands embraces
an area larger than one-third of the
* The lecturer then gave a rapid
sketch of the distinguishing features
of the new school law now in.force.
Instead of the old district system,
the school communities are organ-
ized by voluntary action upon the
part ot parents without reference to
territorial limits or boundaries.
This secures to parents the great-
est latitude in determining what
school they will patronize. Teach-
ers are classified into three grades—
first, second, arid third, with a cor-
responding salary of $60, $40 and
$25 pei month. The lawful school
age includes all children between
the Ages of eight and fourteen years.
He stated that from 1872 to 1880,
Texas expended upon her public
schools $7,000,000, and during that
period 1,500,000 children have been
enrolled in her public free school?,
and the average school term has
been about four months. Thus,
with the donation of 500,000,000,
acres of land, WQith to-day at least
$500,000,000, as a dowery to the
childien of the state for education,
does it sustain, he would ask, tiie
foul calumny that the people of
Texa* are barbarians aftd opposed
to public enlightenment and public
virtue? ' •

Having passed several sleepless nights,
disturbed by the agonies and cries of a
suffering child, and becoming convinced
that Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrup was
just the article needed, procurejj^supplyj
for thi child. On reaching home and ac-
quainting his wife with what he had done,
she refused to have it administered to thel
child, as she was strongly in favoi of
Homoeopathy. That night the child pass
ed in suffering, and the parents without
sleep. Returning home the day follow-
ing, the father found the baby still worse;
and while contemplating another slecpfl
less night, the mother stepped from the
room to attend to some domestic duties,
and left the father with the child. Dur-
ing her absence he administered a portion
of tne Soothing Syrup to the baby, and
said nothing. That night all hands slept
Iwell, and the little fellow awoke in the
morning bright and happy . The mother
was delighted with the sudden and wonj
derful change, and although at first offen|
ded at the deception practised upon herH
has continued to use the Syrup, and suf-
fering cryinar babies and restless nights
have disappeared. A single trial of the

The End of the World.
Speculations about the probable date
of the world's destruction are ridiculous
When a man dies that's the end of the
world to him; and if the reader of this
paragraph is troubled with a bad cough,
cold or sore throat, or difficulty of breath-
ing, hoarseness or any affection of the
bronchial tubes, the best thing he can do
is to postpone the fatal event indefinitely
by a prompt resort to Hale's Honey of
horehound and Tar, which will assuredly
prevent the complaint from terminating
in consumption, and soon restore his
respiratory system to a vigorous condi-
tion. Sold by druggists everywhere at
50 cents and one dollar. Large size
much the cheapest.

A few laboring men on January
16th, formed the Yolk Farming and
Manufacturing association, for the
ptu pose of organizing a co operative
colony. It was proposed that if they
were successful in forming this, to
remove to North Texas, at some
point on the line of the Texas & Pa-
cific railroad. The society hati in-
creased so rapidly in numbers since
its organization, and 'has received
such finaneial support that it has
been setlleU that the colony will start
for Texas the first week in Septem-
ber. ."I I? 'l
Its agents are now examining a
tract of land in Gonzales county,
Texas, 1600 acres in extert, which
has been offered them, fully equip-
ped, on ten year's credit. If they
do not conclude to take this, one of
their members owns 1280 acres of
land in Kendall county, which they
will probably buy. In a conversation
with the Tribune reporter yesiterday,
in regard to the plan of the society,
H. E. Sharpe, its president, sayR :
The colony we intend to settle is
to be carried on by a system never
tried before. It will be more like a
Community than like a colony, though
it could not be strictly called a com-

"In the first place it is to be pure-
ly secular. We intend to tolerate all
religions, but to propagate none.
Secondly, we do not carry the idea
of common property as fai as they
They own all their property in
common. We intend that only our
stores, farms and manufacturing es-
tablishments shail be common prop-
erty. The profits of the colony,
if there are any, are to be divided
among the members of the
society annually. Everybody is
to be paid for the work he does, and
will live as he pleases. We recog-
nize the fact that persons have dif-
ferent tastes, and that any communi-
ty which compels its members to
conform to the same mode of life
must inevitably fail."
"Have you any other rules pecu-
liar to yourselves?"
"No. We have a good many
very strict laws; for instance, one
prohibiting that the property of the
society shall ever be divided 5 but
all these have been adopted at some
timeor another by other communi-
