The (ientle Art of Burglary.
Let those who In the pride of their
practical superiority have been prone
to cast aspersions on those "demd
literary fellers" as the useless pur-
veyors of idle amusement, persons
■without real value to the community,
let such look upon the uplifting in-
fluence that modern fiction has ex-
erted upon the festive burglar and
marvel at this wonder-working agency.
There was a time when Bill Sikes
v.ras a common fellow of low instincts,
with no knowledge of "trouserings,"
no discrimination in the different
vintages of wines, no ability to dis-
tinguish between a pure Havana
cigar and a rank Wheeling stogie, or
to know the difference between a
masterpiece of Rembrandt or of Whis-
tler and a ten-cent chromo.
But since Mr. Hornung invented
Raffles, fhe gentleman burglar, and
Sir Conan Doyle furnished all of those
interesting object lessons of respecta-
bility in crime, the gentle art of bur-
gling has been lifted to higher
levels, and the common trade of
stealing has been elevated to a pro-
fession with scientific training, spe-
. cial aptitudes and refined tastes.
Every issue of the New York papers
contain interesting proof of the social
uplift of the burglar. We read of his
going forth to burgle in a hundred
horsepower automobile of the latest
style and make, clad in garments of
the latest fashion and employing a
courtesy and a style and finesse
worthy of the diplomatic circles. An
up-to-date burglar in New York lately
used a motor boat, and one would not
be surprised in that enterprising city
to have one of the gentlemen drop
down unexpectedly in an airship
Their practice of pausing in the
pursuit of their profession to enjoy a
wine supper at the expense of their
victim, of spending the night between
cool linen sheets in the guest cham
ber—as happened lately on Riverside
,Drive in New \ork-—of dallying over
the matutinal bath, and then leaving
behind a note of thanks and appro
ciation of their night's entertainment
with some discriminating criticism of
the quality of the cigars, is but a
passing example of the growth in cul-
ture and taste in the burgling profes-
The leaven of the sociai uplift has
spread from New York to the "prov-
inces" as such blessings always do.
Why. even here in San Antonio we
had a gentleman burglar last spring
who persisted in practicing his pro-
fession in a pair of very conspicuous
and fashionable pointed-toe shoes, not
withstanding the fact that he had re-
peated newspaper warnings that, the
police were "onto him." As a matter
of fact later events proved that they
weren't, and the gentleman burglar
with his fashionable shoes passed on
to the Eastern summer resorts at the
accepted time for such migration.
Some stupid sociologists have tried
to argue that this burglarious uplift
is due to the increase in wealth, which
provides five handsomely furnished
houses to rob now, where one used
to be. Some Socialists have enviously
tried to prove it the influence of the
select circles of high finance. But
real students of the question recognize
at once in these marvelous exploits
the fine Italian influence of the mod-
ern Machaevellian burglarious litera-
more cuttings, making six for the
year, are expected to make the net
profit $54 an acre.
"Please tell me," says the farmer,
can any other section in the United
States make an equal showing in hay
Yes, sir. Southwest Texas can
make even a better showing. Land
in this section has produced as much
as a ton to the acre at each of as
many as nine cuttings a year and of
such a quality that it readily sold at
an average price of $12 a ton f. o. b.
The cost of harvesting could hardly
have been greater than on the Mis-
sissippi farm and the net profit there-
fore must have been much greater.
Alfalfa is a very profitable crop
where the soil and climate are adapt-
ed to It and where the farmers en-
gaged in Its cultivation understand
the best methods of handling
With alfalfa, as with other crop
there must be intelligent methods
employed, and some experience may
be necessary to obtain the best re
suits. It may happen sometimes that
a farmer will realize handsomely
from his field of alfalfa, while his
neighbor with exactly the same sort
of land and the same conditions will
utterly fail. In such cases, though, the
fault Is not with the land, but with
the farmer who does not know how
to obtain the best results.
Farming is a science and it ought
to be studied as closely and as earn
estly as any other science.
between producer and consumer, says
p contemporary. If it be a question
of transportation it does not matter
whether the distance to be covered be
half a dozen miles, half a hundred
miles or the extent of the continent.
Similarly it does not matter whether
the transportation be over a railroad
o" a dirt road. To cheapen the cost
of moving the products from the farm
to the tailway station is as important
as to cheapen the cost of freight by
rail or water. There is only one way
in which this can be done, and that
is by providing good wagon roads
over which the products are to be
Hearst and Didius Julianus.
As to Alfalfa.
A Mississippi farmer boasts of his
achievements In the alfalfa field.
From a farm of 120 acres he gathered
In May and June an average of two
tons to the acre. The third cutting
in July averaged only half a ton to
the acre, and the fourth cutting about
The immense wealth of William R
Hearst, with his mines and ranche
in California and his incorporated
newspapers in New York and else-
where, and the uses to which he is
known to have put a great deal of it
in furtherance of his political ambi
tion, recalls a bit of ancient history.
In (he year Anno Domini 193 the
Praetorians, having murdered Per-
tinas, offered the throne of the Roman
Empire to the highest bidder, and it
was bought by Didius Julianus at the
price of 6250 drachms—a little more
than $1000 American money—paid to
each of the Praetorians, then num-
bering about 16,000 men. Sixty days
later Didius Julianus was beheaded as
a common criminal by his conqueror,
Since that ancient time civilization
and enlightenment have made great
progress and thrones are no longer
sold to the highest bidder at public
auction, but in our modern demo-
cratic Republics offices have been
bought as openly as was the throne
of the Roman Empire by the purchase
of votes and by the uses of money
in the conduct of political campaign?
and in the controlling of elections.
Ot course, all that is past now un-
der the improved election laws, which
prohibit the direct purchase of votes
under a ballot system which permitted
corrupfers of the ballot to hang
around the polls to see that the goods
were delivered after the purchase was
made and by the yet unwritten law
against contributions by great corpor-
ations and trusts for campaign pur-
In a campaign of many years ago
it was charged that the National
chairman of one of the political par-
ties used the campaign fund which
had been wrung from Federal em
ployes under a regular assessment
plan and from the great corporations
by the "fat-fryers" to comipt the bal
lot, and that the purchased voters
were voted in "blocks of five." In
more recent. National campaign it was
charged that the executive committee
of one of the political parties collected
fund of $4,000,000 for campaign ex-
penses and it is not to be supposed
that this enormous sum could have
been necessary for purely legitimate
expenses. But there will be
of that we. are told.
It is alleged that, in 1894, in his ef-
forts to secure the Democratic nomi-
nation for President of the United
States, Mr. Hearst spent a sum of
money equal to that said to have been
spent by Didius Julianus for the
throne of the Roman Empire. But it
availed him naught, and before the
convention met he had practically
abandoned his campaign, or, at least
the financing of it. There are those
who think Mr. Hearst is going on the
principle that everything is for sale
and that it is only a question of ability
But Mr. Hearst Is not frying to buy
office on the highest bidder plan. He
dees not buy voters. He employs
lieutenants who mold public sentiment
and win supporters for him, and he
pays most of them a good deal more
than $1000 each. His candidacy for
the Governership of New York will
cost him a pretty figure, but it is a
splendid advertisement for Hearst and
his newspapers and may be worth to
him all that it costs.
Referring to the municipal govern-
ment of Galveston the Chicago Chron-
icle says: "Whether such a system
could ever be adapted to a city of the
size of Chicago no one at present can
tell, but everybody knows that it
could not be worse than the system
undfer which this city now groans and
staggers. Possibly the system would
be greatly to the advantage of Chi-
cago if the politicians would only let
her have it, but the cormorants, the
ward healers and those who subsist
on the crumbs from the official table
are always bitterly antagonistic to any
change in the system of government
which would diminish their chances
ot living at the public expense.

The work of raising a fund for the
completion of the Y. M. C. A. build-

The people of San Antonio have re-

up the necessary fund will be forth-
coming in a short time. There are

Even to the Big Divide.
,r years ago Kerrville was re-
garded the western limit of the farming
poition of Kerr County. West of there
w.is considered fit only for wild people,
vuhJ cattte and wild hogs. Gradually a.
enange came over this section of the
county. The hunter, the cedar hauler
and the primitive stockman moved on
in quest of game, free timber and free
grans, and left the country in the pos-
session of an intelligent, thrifty lot of
t.rimers and ranchmen. Instead of razor-
nack nogs and long-horned Spanish cat-
lie, which only experienced cow-punch-
ers could handle, we now see herds of
improved, docile hogs and cattle and
ijocks of Angora goats and fine sheep.
jnow, too, some of the best farms are
situated on the Divide, and more and
more of these will be developed as th
years go by.

A corporate existence Is necessary to
every town in the furtherance of all
municipal undertakings. Such things can
be accomplished only by co-operation,
and that is secured only by organization.
