THE CHILDREN'S HOUR.
The Bulletin feels that it ought to make some editorial com-
mendation of the children's story telling hour at the library.
There is nothing that so delights a child as a good story well
told and nothing that will make such a lasting impression upon
the mind. The children who go to these Saturday afternoon
Story Hours will get there many lessons they could not obtain
elsewhere and they will be given in Such away that they will
not realize that they are being instructed. Those who were at
tbe library last Saturday are eager for the time to come again
and where the child can be kept in. anxious expectancy of an
.event it is certain to enjoy it. There are a number of good story
tellers among the ladies of Brownwood and .the children who go
are sure to be well entertained. There were just 112 of the little
folks at the library last Saturday and next Saturday arrange-
ments will be made; to accommodate 400 should that many be-
present. The library committee hopes to Jaccomplish much good

A; COMMENDABLE WORK
An enthusiastic meeting of the Daughters of the Confederacy
through the New Orleans papers to defend himself and tomake
it appear that Texas would oppress capital and especally rail-
road capital. Refering to the criticism of the Houston Post es-
pecially CoJ. Fay says 14 Some' of the demagogues in Texas
would delight in sending somerailroad officers to the penitentiary
but none of the railroad officers are going to gratify their lust in
this direction even though it does result in misrepresentation.
Political demagogues particularly in the south have done incalcu-
able damage to railroads interests in the past years and in some
sections have blasted any prospects of building new. lines' and
further development. The people will finally be the judges of
the office seeking politicians who are trying "to. perpetuate them-
selve in power by the persecution of the railroads" etc. Could
any language be more intemperate or more unjust to the Post
and to the entire state of Texas? The Reople of this state .are
tiring of being pictured to the people of other states as dema-
cogues simply because thev insist on havintr the railroads and
the corporations meet out justice to its citizens. Shajl the rail-
roads be allowed to slaughter Texas citizens to conceal from the
public as loner as possible the extent of the damages and rhmi tn
abuse the press and the people because they insist on knowing the
facts about the accidents? Shall the press be abused and villified
by these railroad corporations represented by such men as Col.
Fay just because it insists on gathering and distributing news?
Does Col. Fay expect his road to have the good will of Texas peo-
ple when he calls them demagogues for such reasons as these?
Does fie expect Texa to submit to being held up to the world
through the press of other states as people who are seeking to
send railroad men to the penitentiary for no just cause without
resenting the insult? Is such language as rs quoted above that
of the man who desires to deal fairly with the public or is it
the intemperate utterance of one who Knows .that his road
would trample upon every right of the people of Texas if not
restrained by the. strictest laws? Does not Col. Fay prove that
he himself attempts demagoguery by using the incident of the"
Strange wreck to write an essay for the New Orleans paper on

fulness lies before the Daughters of the Confederacy in their

COLONEL FAY'S MISTAKE. '
Some time ago there was a disastrous wreck on the South-

that they were not afforded facilities for securing information
that the public desired the special charge being that the claim
agents of the road threw every obstacle in the way of securing
the names of the injured and the extent of their injuries in "order
that they might be able to compromise possible claims before
publicity was given to the injuries. The "matter came to the at-
tention of the railroad commission and orders were issued that

of such matters. Of course the commission was poverless to
make them allow newspapers to have access to the reports but
the paper can hereafter get them from the commission. The vice
president of the Southern Pacific road has; rushed into print.
