THE DIFFICULT LOVE.
For if you love them that km
you, what reward have ye? do not
even the publicans the same?"—
One of the reasons why Holy Writ
is so world-wide in its influence is
because t is that in its sympathetic
comprehension. As our mother and
her mother were wont to do when
perplexities overcame, the Bible may
be opened at random and on the
pages will be. found printed a verse
or sentence which somehow and mys-
teriously set ma applicable to the par-
ticular trouble opprealng at the mo-
ment. Hence it is that from the Bi-
ble hare been taken texts for some
of the profoundest srmons and ora-
tions which, since the time of Christ,
bare teen given to a receptive world.

Of course, it is a fact not possible
of controversion that the weather

man mentally, considerably more
than the changes normally affect his
physical being At least, for the
purpose of this .argument, extremes
weather conditions influence the
trend of one's thought at the time
being. Yesterday's end impressed
the suggestion on the minds of us all
that of all the places one could pre-
fer to seek, first and foremost was
the warm, cheerful fireside with its
attending quietude and mental and
bodily comforts. And every one for
whom there was a fireside waiting
and who could possibly hit thereto
proceeded forthwith with as little de-
lay as poptMcr

haps, lull you to a forgetfulnfss of
others somewhere around you who
were less fortunately situated? The
firesideless ones, we speak of.
This brings us to speak of the self
centered loves so natural to exist
thru the frailty of our natures. It
was of such that the Christ referred
when he uttered the word? quoted
above, in his immortal Sermon on
the Mount. His question Implied
simply that there is no glory in the
live given to whom, by reason of kin
or friendship ties, it is most natural
to do; and it signifies also, the dif-
ficulty with all of us to care for, or
even occasionally have in mind,
those about us whose only claim on
us is thru a broad, unselfish charity
which should be in our hearts wheth
er it is or not. |

WILL ASK FOR TEST
(By Telegram's Correspondent).
Belton, Nov. 12.—Mr. Geo. Wola-
ton, who is the Belton cotton weigh-
er and has been for 23 years, has
noted publication of complaint
against his cotton weights in yes-
terday's Telegram, and informs your
correspondent that he has asked the
commissioners' court to test his
scales and satisfy themselves as to
whether or not tteT are correct. It
might be suggested in this connec-
tion that The Telegram's statement
is rather severe as there had not at
that time been a test made by the
court to determine whether or not
either the Belton scales or those at
Nolanville were Incorrect, and hence
the statement might reflect upon
either or both weighers. Let us not
be judge and jury in this matter un-
til more information is put in evi-
(Editor's Note—Assuming that
our correspondent at Belton intend-
ed speaking for the Mr. George Wol-
ston mentioned, in extent, more than
for himself, The Telegram will say
that it is he (Mr. Wolston) who Is
presuming, and not The Telegram.
The Telegram's article to which
the above, apparently, refers, car-
ried in the issue of yesterday morn-
ing. reported what had transpired.
Held to naked facts, publication of
any thing of that sort constitutes
news which to convey to the public
is the purpose of a daily paper. In
this particular case, what was pub-
lished as facts has subsequently been
again verified by no less a personage
than Editor Woodall of the Belton
Democrat who. after calling yester-
day at The Telegram office, returned
home with his "vial of wrath" in an
uncorked condition. Mr. Wolston,
we refer to as presuming, for the
reason his name was not once men-
tioned in the report, nor were the
scales he uses specifically referred to.
As a matter of fact, it is a detail of
no concern to this paper who Is the
public weigher in Belton. nor whe-
ther he has filled that position for
twenty three years or only that'
The matter of severity our corres- j
pondent alludes to as the manner in
which the item was reportorially
handled is a matter of Individual
opinion with which this paper like-
wise is unconcerned.
As to being "judge and jury" in
this matter, we disown any such in-
tent or even desire. We believe how-
ever, that Mr. Wolston, who it seems
Is the Belton cotton wlgher, is to he
commended for his purpose, tardy,
tho it seems to be. to Invite the coun-
ty commissioners to test his scales
and correct any irregularities that
may be found: and this, as a matter
of fact, should be done at Nolan-
ville and elswhere including, none
the less, the scales in Temple. This
should be done at frequent intervals
throughout each cotton season as a
matter of justice to the weighers, the
farmers and the buyers of cotton.

Among other very valuable and interesting features of this great edi-
tion, will be an illustrated history of Temple, from the erection of the
first tent pole on the farm of Jonathan E. Moore, step by step down to the
present day. This histoTy is being written and compiled for us by Mr. J.
S. Peny. There is no man in Temple who is better equipped to write the
history of Temple than Mr. Peny. The undertaking has consumed more
than thfee months of arduous labor and painstaking research. In ad-
dition to chronicling the occurrences, incidents and happens of the early
period of the young prairie city, its struggles, tragedies, reverses and
accomplishments, it contains biographical sketches of the men foremost
in the early history and upbuilding of the town, the whole elaborately
illustrated from old, tho well preserved photographs and sketches. This
illustrated history will fill four or five pages of The Telegram, set in the
smallest newspaper type.
Several more pages of this great edition will be used in describing and
picturing the present day Temple and her men and institutions.
Four full pages will be appropriated by The Daily Telegram itself.
These pages will be elaborately and artistically illustrated and deco-
rated by The Daily Telegram's two staff artists. Messrs. Crandali and
Willliams. One entire page drawing, done in crayon, by Mr. Crandali, en-
titled "The Spirit of The Press" will be the crowning feature of the ar-
tistic side of the edition. Another full page will be devoted to photo-
graphs of The Telegram's working force, set in artistic and coimcal deco-
rations, by artist Crandali. captioned—"The People Who Make The Tele-
Temple's schools. Temple's churches. Temple's Financial Institutions
and Temple's Business enterprises will all be handled in a comprehensive
and artistic manner.
A force of writers, artists and linotype operators have been employed
almost constantly on this edition for the past several weeks, and no ex-
pense or labor is being spared to make it a newspaper that must attract
attention to Temple throughout the state and nation. The publication
will be anywhere between 20 and 40 pages in extent and will reach not
less than twenty thousand readers. Owing to its artistic features and
its great value from a historical stanpoint, we feel sure that this edition
is not destined to be merely glanced over and thrown aside, but will be
filed and preserved in many thousand homes, by those who are in any
way interested in Temple people or Temple's history past, present or
The publishers are spending nearly a thousand dollar* on this publi-
cation. The price will be 10 cents per copy for extra oopies.

readers in Temple and the immediate vicinity, as their favorite
daily newspaper, ample cause for celebrating.

In Dallas during the recent State
Fair occurred a family reunion which
will be of interest to the many Bell
county friends of Dr. M. T. Cox, who
was for twenty-flve years a citizen of
Belton and Temple.
November the first marked the
eighty-eighth birthday of Dr. Cox,
and to celebrate this happy evnt, his
youngest son, Dr. E. T. Cox, prepar-
ed for him a joyful surprise in th6
form of a reunion of all thl children
the first one since 1887.
As the different sons and daugh-
tera began to arrive the father was
filled with joy, and when it became
known to him that all were expected
to be present, his happiness was un
The birthday dinner was served
in the home of Dr. and Mrs. E. T.
Cox and was an event which will
never be forgotten by all present.
The venerable father, witl his child-
ren around him once more, seated
at the table, as they were wont to
be in childhood's happy days, the
flow of conversation, In happy remi
nescence or sad reflection, the joys,
the tears of other years, the beauti-
fully appointed table and its savory
dishes and, running'through it all a
spirit of good will and thanksgiving
made the scene an impressive one,
filling the hearts with emotion and
dimming the eyes with happy tears.
Those seated at the table were
Dr. M. T. Cox, Dallas, Texas;
Mrs. Alice C. Coleman, Dallas, Texas;
Mrs. W. S, McGregor, Temple. Texas;

of unalloyed plasure to all present.
