It looks like the man in the Brown
wood country who has had the fore
sight to plant a crop of wheat or oats
is to be in luck again nest year.

his pens is independent of the meat

Just as soon as Brownwoods bonds
can be approved and sold work will
probably begin on that $25000 school
building on the old Central school
site in order to get it ready for the
opening in the fall without having to
rush the work too much.
With the beginning of the new year
Brownwood ought to get a new move
on itself for park improvement A
park commissioner should be elected
by the city council and a reasonable
sum appropriated for maintainance
and improvement of the parks of the
If the. states of the south all pass
compulsory education laws and en-
force them the cotton question will
be settled-and there will be no more
grumbling about low prices of cotton.
Ir is the child and woman labor in
the cotton fields that is responsible
more than all other things for the
low price of cotton.
The well lighted streets in the
down-town part of Browhwood at-
tracted much favorable attention
while there were so many visitors
here last week. The matter of arc
lights at all the railway crossings
should be speedily pushed for they
are very much needed to safeguard
the life of the people who have to
cross these roads.

not much behind Center Avenue in
this regard and a few months ought

The man who prefers the one-horse
town to the progressive hustling city
should not in justice to the great
majority who prefers better things
stand in the way of the progress of
a place but should move out and set-
tle where one-horse conditions will
likely continue. There is room
enough in this great big world to
please all people and there is no good
to come from cultivating a grumblng
disposition because things are not to
The anti-;prohibitIonists are organ-
ized and declare that their first ef-
forts will be to attempt to defeat the
will of the people as expressed In the
primaries by inducng at least eleven
senators to vote against submission.
It Is this spirit on the part of the
liquor interests that defies the will of
the people that has brought about
the demand' for state prohibition.
Organized anti-prohibition is nothing
Iuss than organized opposition to the
will of the people If that be necessary
to accomplish its purpose.
The Bulletin thinks that the city
council 'of Brown wood" and the Brown
County Commissioners did exactly the
right thing in making an appropria-
tion for. paying for part of the ex-
penses of securing the free tubercu
losis exhibit during the carnival.
These bodies' donated $50.00 each
while the citizens of Brownwood paid
the other $100.00 necessary to obtain
it the result being -that about 15000
people visited the exhibit and most of
them heard he instructive lectures

"Yes Anthracite coal -Is what we
call hard ual. So 'anthracite must
mean 'hard.' Now. can you tell me
what 'bituminous' means?"
"That's coal too." Willie replied.
"But it isn't the same kind of coal
that anthracite is. Is it? Bitumlnou.H
coal Is what we commonly refer to as
soft coal. Now. Willie let us see If
you can form a sentence containing
the words anthracite and bituminous."
Willie tin unht the matter over for a
moment ami then-suid: . .
"Ilere's one: 'This morning Iwfore
pa started downtown ma wanted $5
for groceries and things and she tried
to get It by saying bituminous words
but pa gave her an anthracite look

A popular actress recently visited
Chicago's Ghetto seeking a samovar.
In that strange section of cosmopolitan-

Mr. C a distinguished lawyer of
Boston was on his way to Denver to
transact some Important business.
During the afternoon he noticed in tb
opposite section of tho Pullman a
sweet faced tired appearing woman
traveling with four small children.
Being fond of children and feeling
sorry for the mother he soon made
friends with the little ones. Early
tho next morning he heard their eager
questions and the patient "Yes dear""
of the mother as she tried to dress
them and looking out he saw a small
white foot protruding beyond the op-
posite curtain. Reaching across the

taken from every ledge In our house
and left to gather thickly In our brains.
