Mayor and Aldermen Invited.
The mayor and aldermen representing tho
inhabitants of the city of Houston havo been
invited, and will likely accept, to visit the new
vitrified brick works at Ganson, on the line
of the Houston East and West Texas railway.
The invitation was extended because the
city contracted with this company
to furnish it vitrified brick for
the building of six and one-half miles of street
paving for the "city. Tho idea is to havo the
city fathers take a paternal look at the new
plant, see the product.aud thus get an idea of
the ability of the company to properly carry
out its contract.
They will leave Tuesday morning at 7.30
o'clock and return at 8 o'clock in tho evening.
All will likely attend.

the matter of transportation of supplies and

The Marking System of No Practical
Benefit—Inspection Asked For.
Crockett, Tex., June 22.—To The New9:
I have read with much satisfaction the letter
of "A Teacher" in The Nkws of yesterday,
and am ready to indorse her views. Especial-
ly is she correct in what she says about meas-
uring a teacher's ability by questions and
answers, and the injustice of the perpetual ex-
I know it to be a fact that many people who
are competent will sometimes fail at an ex-
amination. This arises generally from ner-
vousness brought on by anxiety. I know of
tcachors who hold second class certificates
being far more capable than others who hold
Although a thorough knowledge of a sub-
ject is indisponsible to tho teacher, it is not all
that is necessary by any means. Many peo-
ple understand a subject and yet find it im-
possible to impart their knowledge to others.
The faculty of imparting knowledge is not
possessed by half of those who are to-day en-
gaged in teaching. This gift, and a love of
the profession for its own sake, are indispen-
siblo to success.
How are we to ascertain what teachers
possess these qualifications, and what ones
are deficient? In my humble opinion a rigid
system of school inspection is badly needed.
1 believe it would furnish a much more satis-
factory criterion than any other method of
testing a teacher's qualifications. Many de-
serving teachers would then meet with tho
recognition they deserve, and a goodly num-
ber who are merely killing time would bo
relegated to the sphere that nature intended
they should occupy.
Regular visits to the schoolroom would
develop the fact that hundreds of children
are being dwarfed in body, aa well as in
mind, from negligence on tho part of teachers
who are interested in tho end of the month
arriving and in nothing else.
I believe every true teacher in Texas will
agree with me in this.
Many honest teachers are driven to other
occupations by reason of the fact that they
meet with no recognition, while the time/
server who shovos the children through one
book after another, regardless of their solid
progress, meets with the applause and com-
mendation of unthinking parents.
A system of inspection would soon put a
stop to these abuses, and would prove a boon
to teachers as well as scholars. c. e. h.
Can Not Go to Norfolk.
Palestine, Tex., June 25.—The amatour
dramatic company gave a second rendition of
"Nevada, or Tho Lost Mine" at the opera
house last night. While tho seats were not all
filled by several scores yet the audience was
an appreciative one and heartily cheered tho
performers throughout in their endeavors to
render the piece acceptable to tho audience, in
which they were ontirely successful. The fire
department band composed the orchestra and
much praise was given them for the music
rendered on the occasion; they also received
the net proceeds of the performance as a ben-
efit for the band.
The big rain of yesterday morning extended
all over the county. It was all that was needed
at present, and yet there was another shower
this morning and the ground is just soaking

was shot and severely wounded in the shoul-

Mexican who was herding a bunch of goats on

A Mexican reported to the officials that ho
had found the dead body of a man out some
ten miles from town, who in company with
the informant went out to where tho body
was. Deceased was well dressed and appeared
to be about 20 years of age. In his pocket
was found a letter addressed to San Antonio.

ances had been doad about four days. No
marks of violence could be found - upon his

Beaumont, Tex., Juno 25.—Tho corner
stone of the new courthouse was laid yestor-
day afternoon at 3 o'clock in accordance with
the usual ceremony in such eases by tho Ma-

Tho stone is a handsome block of Burnet
granite, 21^x31 }4 inches, witli the following
inscription upon its face: "This stone laid

lower part of town, was robbed of a small
amount oi money. No goods wore missed.

People have no idea how
crude and cruel soap can be.
It takes off dirt. So far,
so good; but what else does
it do ?
It cuts the skin and frets
the under-skin ; makes red-
ness and roughness and
leads to worse. Not soap,
but the alkali in it.
Pears' Soap has no free,
alkali in it. It neither red-
dens nor roughens the skin.
It responds to water in-
stantly ; washes and rinses
off in a twinkling; is as
gentle as strong; and the
after-effect is every way
All sorts of stores sell it,
especially druggists; all sorts
of people use it.
