THE DECLINE OF DE
Joseph Weldon Bailey is a former
United States Senator and' a former
leader of Texas politics. Around him
at one time stormed the .hottest pas-
sions of a commonwealth and he came
out of it with much of his prestige
destroyed but with a coat of white-
law and making money there bat he
still claims Texas asj his home anjl
lie still has . an ambition to color up
Hhe1 political waters: of 'both tlie" state
speech in .which'- he 'lamented ' the
downfall of ' democracy and the de-
struction of ;"personal liberty." Among
other things-he is credited' '"with hav-

fighting for and dying for is the lib-
erty of the individual the right of

as he does not interefere with the
right of other men to do the same.
"But in this day they tell us that
it is better to.be good than it is to

not carry even an index of them in
their minds.. "We have restricted the
rights of men until no civilized coun-
try on tlie globe interefes with the

alarmed. He doesn't havo to "be

"THE PARSON'S GOLVMN"
"A Thing of Shreds and Patches"
The Parson having a couple of days
at liberty "for the first time in many
weeks determined to put them in in
doing away with the abominable grass
which had taken possession of his laAvn
in common with all the- other lawns in
town. He had his usual experience
while engaged in this work. .About
half a dozen of his friends opined; that
he was working for- fun;" Thoy'iheld
.that it was goodsexerclse for' jimi."
He had the offer Of assistance -frani
cnmo tViro nr frrnr lnnrfi. bilt foil lid
tlfey ;demande(i money for their
aid. As the Parson has no money; he
was obliged to decline. One more ask-
ed him why he did not get him a -.cow
which was. very unkind. That man
knew perfectly well that the Parson
was as well able to produce an
icthysaurus as a cow. He should. have
remembered too that in these days of
unrest it is unwise to suggest to the
impecunious that there is anything
tliey cannot 4iave. Neighbor Clardy
stayed for a'.moment to tell the Parson
that he was sorry for him so' wasting
some perfectly good compassion. Joe
Renfro graciously waved his hand and
told the Parson that "if he wanted any
hell) to call for him." It only remains
forEd Henley to pass in his. gas-wagon
and call out that "there is where hes0 needing no instruction or train-
got his start." and for Judge Early to

The Parson lias been asked to say
something on the subject of the treat-
ment of conscientious objectors. He
begs to be excused: as "he said all he
had to say on that subject some weeks
ago. But he will once more assert that
freedom oi speech is in 'some danger
of befnsr lost. It is the riffht of any cit
izen to criticise any measure of the
