A prominent Jew lias predicted that in time all the

America are fruits of the constitution of the country, which
broadly welcomes citizens regardless of religious beliefs.

forego part of their profits on account of the "meddle-
someness" of the chief chemist, are determined to get rid
of him somehow. Again the case will be tried before the

the signs are read awrong.
y Will Mayes is not Imitative, but he has a great mind

torer, under the auspices of a bureau. He makes his

The public school system of Texas is something of a
Whopper, even though the educational lecturers ,may de-
Bounce the state for being behind in educational matters.
Texas hae an enormous permanent fund, which is sup-
plemented by liberal taxation, the whole being sufficient
to give to each child within scholastic age In the state tha
Bum of IS.S6 per annum, and with the total distributed
among those who actually attend, the amount Is consid-
erably increased, In its application. The state has just
appropriated $3 per capita, on the present year's appor-
tionment, and that amounts to nearly $3,000,000. It lack*
'only II.S» per capita of completing the payments for th »
current year, and it is the largest apportionment ever
made at one time.

the revolt in northern Mexico is serving Madero well. It (
raised a lot of pretenders to the presidential throne, and
now Zapata himself declares against Gome*. After the
rival leaders fight it out among themselves, there will be
but little left tor the government to do.
The court of arbitration at Washington has ruled
that a patentee has no power to regulate prices at which
his invention shall be sold, after an article passes from
his hands. The case arose over a cut price made on a
patent medicine, by a druggist, and the court held that
the manufacturers of the drug, or of any other patented
article, could not dictate the price at which a dealer
should sell it.
Nearly a million English coal miners are out on a
strike .despite the efforts of the government to bring
about a settlement of the dispute. The miners coutend
for the establishment of u minimum wage scale, as a
principal demand, and the government has held to be a
just c^itentlon. but the owners have so far refused to
admit It. The strikers go into the contest with the gov-
ernment favoring their cause, and they rely on that for
a quick settlement, the government having notified the
owners that if the minimum scale did not come through
agreement. It would have to come In some other way.

For the first time since the bureau of vital statistics
has been established in Texas, and most probably for the
first time in the state's history, the deaths from tuber-
culosis have been less within a month, than from some
other disease. January reports show that pneumonia
led in the number of deaths, and even in that, the record
was comparatively light, there being but three hundred
and flfty-stx deaths attributed to pneumonia This in ;i
state of Texas' population is a very creditable record, and
it is to be taken into account that patients suffering from
lung troubles come here from all over the union. The
record is extremely gratifying in the reduced death rate
WHAT IS A LADY?
A little while ago an English paper offered a prize for
the best definition of a lady. This is the answer that
took the prize:
"To be a lady, rightly, means to be a gentlewoman
who shows by her every word and action a sweet and
gentle dignity, with a gracious charm of manner; a
woman whose heart is pure and true, who is tender to-
ward all suffering, who sympathises with those In trouble
and is ever ready to give that which costs her some effort
and self-denial. A lady thinks no work derogatory, and
no one is deemed too low to receive courtesy and kindness.
She Is pure and good in every detail of life, a true friend
and a 'ministering angel' in sorrow and in sickness "
Could any one give a better answer?
MADERO WON TOO EASILY.
(St. Louis Republic.)
In the larger matters of human destiny the thoughtful
human being may well pray to be delivered from bargain
days. Nothing is more unfortunate for the man who
would obtain power than to get a dollar's worth for 60
cents, lie is far more to be congratulated If he be com-
pelled to pay a dollar and a half for it.
Francisco I. Madero, president of the United States of
Mexico, is an impressive illustration of this Inexorable
fact. Power has been committed to him on terms too
Madero came to the presidency not because he was
strong but because Diaz was weak, lie did not conquer
the old regime. He looked on philosophically while It
crumbled to pieces, lie is not a seasoned revolutionary
leader. He is still an untried man.
There will not be peace and stability in Mexico until
men have paid in conflict the price of peace A party
must be welded together by the cohesion of common
conviction, and the warmth of enthusiaam for a leader.
This can only come through struggle, physical or political.
There must be fighting. In the forum or on the field.
There is no reason to despair of Mexico. This country
did not become a nation for many years after July 4.
1 776. The way to national consciousness Is through a
struggle, either with an external foe or between warring
factions within the state.
THE MISSING WORD.
CHOICE B. RANDELL
AND HIS POSITION
Friendly Letter to Bell County Citi-
zens Explains Several Points
Personal and Otherwise.
(St, Louis Republic.)
A few of the progressive republicans are at last notic-
ing the fact that Mr. Roosevelt's many words on all sides
of all questions but one never includes a reference to the
In anybody else claiming to represent the progressive
sentiment of the country this omission would long ago
have been regarded not only as significant but fatal. How
can there be any advancement politically, socially or in-
dustrially while this wrong, which la at the root of nearly
all wrongs. In undisturbed?
It Is to the tariff that we are indebted for moet of
our monopolies and trusts. The tariff corrupts our poll-
tics with huge campaign funds. The tariff buya senator-
ships and sells laws. The tariff has divided the people
Into two classes. The tariff is the great centralizing fores
of the day. It is to save the tariff and the evils that pro-
ceed from it that we hear so much of new courts and new
bureaus at Washington to supersede the constitutional
agencies of government.
When we get down to bed rock we shall probably find
that It la the tariff that is behind the third-term move-
Where will the extortioners and oppressors who are
sheltered by favoring laws find a man more to their taste
than the one who In all hts years of public life has never
mentioned the tariff?
(San Antonio Express.)
The need in this country of a better supply of small
coins has recently found expression in a den- nd for the
re-introductlon of the 3-cent piece. A coin of that value
would be serviceable In cities where there is a 3-cent
car fare, but it Is an anomaly in a decimal coinage system,
if the pressure of high prices is going to bring into popu-
lar use a coin between the cent and the nickel It would
seem to be more reasonable to follow the established cus-
tom of other countries and to divide our quarter Into
tenths, as the German mark and the French franc are
divided. A 2%-cent piece could be fitted into our coin-
age system and would perhaps help to moderate charges
now calculated In nickels and dimes.
The values of coins in use are believed to have a strong
indirect influence on prices, and American extravagance
can probably be traced in some degree to our habit of
thinking In terms of a large unit like the dollar. People
who think in marks, shillings or frances are likely to be
more successful in effecting economies In the ordinary
routine of living. Where the franc or its equivalent is
employed It becomes a standard compensation for many
services, and each subdivision becomes in turn a similar
standard a little lower than that in use where a unit of
larger value takes tbe franc's place. We have only five
subdivision* of the quarter, while the German and the
Frenchman have ten subdivisions.

which are suggested in the replies
House of Representatives, Wash-
ington. D. C., Feb. 26. 1912.—Mr. M.
H. Shanklln, Belton. Texas. My Dear
Mr Shanklln: Replying at the earli-
est possible moment to your very kind
and most highly appreciated letter of
the 15th Inst.:
On the 2»th day of October, 1879, I
married Miss Anna Marschalk, at
Natchez, Miss., having gotten ac-
quainted with her some years before
In Georgia, which is no native state.
She was the daughter of Col. Andrew
Marschalk, and a sister of William
and Frank Marscbalk It is the same
family you refer to. All the family
are dead exoeptlng my wife and her
brother, William A. Marschalk. The
latter is now a resident of Washing-
ton City. He waa 70 years of age the
Ittth of this month and Is In splendid
health, i was 22 yearn of age at the
time of my marriage and was then
practicing law in Denison, Texas, My
wife is a little more than a year
younger than 1. We have only one
child living, Andrew L. Randell, 31
years of age, who Is my partner In the
law practice in Sherman.
Mrs. Randell has been an Invalid
since tbe summer of 1*01, a year after
I was elected to congress, and for tbe
last five years has been most of the
time dangerously ill. She Is better
now than she has been for many
mouths, but during December and
January last she was In a very criti-
cal oondition and required my per-
sonal attention almost constantly. We
have had our share of trouble and
sorrow but we both enjoy life as best
we can and are truly grateful for tho
many blessings we have had. We
both believe that all things work to-
gether for good and trust with im-
plicit confidence in the goodneas of
Divine Providence. No man in con-
gress has been more handicapped by
troubles and obstacles than 1 havo
been during all my service, but no
matter how rough the road may be I
will never fallur In the discharge of
my duty and will never be found
shirking any responsibility or lagging
In the discharge of my duty. No man
in public life has been more misrep-
resented by the political sharks and
grafters than I have been.
I am not "In thp brewers crowd,"
as you expreaa it, nor am I aligned
with any Interest adverse to the peo-
ple. I am a democrat and have al-
ways treated the prohibition question
as a moral and a local issue and have
had nothing to do with either one side
oi the other of this queetion In twen-
ty-flve years. As a matter of public
policy all will admit that public men
should as far as ppaslb'e refrain from
local issues, and I have consistently
pursued this course. It is by the agi-
tation of Such questions that the in-
terests In Texas and In all the states
endeavor to distract the attention of
the public from those matters of vital
concern afectlng thetr political and
material welfare. It Is by such means
that the interests succeed In electing
those most favorable to them and
thereby they have obtained and main-
tain control of the government. Put
the interests and the grafters out of
politics and elect real democrats who
will serve the people and the people
only. By no other means can we get
relief from present oppression and In
no other way will the people be able
to resume control of public affairs.
The scheme of the politician is to
make prohibition and anti-prohibi-
tion tbe Issue in the senatorial cam-
paign. Every aspirant whose candi-
dacy Is based on such idea is un-
worthy of support. I hope that all
the democrats will rally to my sup-
port and I feel that my overwhelming
victory at the primaries would mean
a decided defeat of the Interests and
a triumph of detnocracy in the inter-
eat of the people. If I did not be-

If you are subject to constipation,
you should avoid strong drugs and
cathartics. They only give temporary
relief and their reaction is harmful

which they come In contact.

of his father's. The Trempers are
among the richest and most aristo-

In her hand, tbe whole ^situation un
folded before her. Burton himself, bis
words and actions, appeared tn a new
light. And there was no doubt in ber
mind that certain information had
been the cause of his mother's "sur-
prise visit." Very often lately, while
in Trempers company, they had met
men who lifted their hats and looked
curiously at Sydney. Probably some
family frleod had considered it hit
duty to report gossip.
She laid out no plan of conduct. She
only wished not to think at all She
was conscious of a sort of weary re-
gret that sbe had not been married
That ahe had not been the only one
to note that paragraph, the renewed
stares and whisperings at the store
made evident. Again she must pretend
not to hear the oft repeated tale of
Chrlstabel Shannon, who had actually
married Valentine Burke. With a
quickening heart, and a sinking of it
too. she turned from this repetition to
r< handsome woman of fifty, severely
elegantly dressed, who sat down
... ter counter and aaked for gloves.
Sydney bad showed her several
shades before a vague familiarity of
feature, and something oddly search-
ing in the well-bred gaze enlightened
her. The color crept hotly to her
cheeks. Tbe lady saw tt.
"Are you 3ydney Chaser* the aaked
abruptly In a low voice.
"Yes, madam." quietly.
"And I—I see that you recognise
"I think so."
"I am Burton Tremper s mother."
The girl Inclined her head In silence.
"Will you try these on?" She Indi-
cated the gloves selected.
Mrs. Tremper, somewhat taken
aback, assented, and for a moment
watched the small, white, well-kept
hands busy themselves at her own with
a deft strength that seemed somehow
Indicative of some force of character
In the girl herself.
But sbe had something to gay. "You
can probably guess that I did not come
here to buy gloves, but to see you."
Sydney made no reply.
"Mr. Meadots thought It hi* duty to
Inform us of Burton's—interest—"
(she was going to say Infatuation)—
Still no words from Sydney.

enough to tell me the truth. He con-
