SUNDAY liOSNiNS, MAKCH 3, 1203.
RUMORS are current in New
York to the effect that Morgan
has bought the Ffisoo for the
Rock Island or the Southern.
Of the thirty senators whose
terms expired with the close of the
last session of congress, thirteen
failed to secure re-election, or
were not candidates.
The latest estimates indicate
that the railroads of the United
States will spend over §800,000,-
000 in maintenance *nd improve-
rafenti during 1903.
Some New York physicians
say the formalin cure for blood
poisoning is a failure. It ha&
been lauded as a cure, and pro-
nounced entirely reliable by phy-
The Sherman Courier claims
to have 6,000 subscribers, and
yet one side of the paper is "pat-
ent"—printed away from home.
The Courier is a good paper, but
it would be doubly so were it all
Now you're shouting, Brother
It was Horace Greeley who
said: "Itis strange how close
some men read the papers. We
never say anything a man don't
like but what we soon hear of it.
We may pay some men a hun-
dred compliments and give him a
dozen puffs and he takes it as a
tribute to his greatness—he never
thinks that it does him any good.
But if we happen to say anything
the man doesn't like or some-
thing he imagines reflects on hie
character, see how quick he flares
up and gets excited about it.
Then our evils are charged to us,
but apparently we never get
credit for the good we do."
It is the opinion of the Marlin
Democrat that before the State
grants judges of courts an in-
crease in salary, an increase in
service should be required. We
do not mean any disrespect to
the honorable gentlemen who oc-
cupy these positions, but it is a
lamentable fact that much of the
delay in the trial of cases is due
to the lack of system in many of
the courts. The distriot judges
are now paid $2,500 per year and
the higher court judges $3,500.
From time immemorial these
places have been strongly sought
after by able men. In some in-
stances the earamble for the po-
sitions have bordered on the
rediculous. Would not the con-
tests be further embittered if an
increase of salary is granted?
The greater the stake the greater
the contest for it. And it would
doubtless continue to be a faot
that the candidate who was the
smoothiest politician would get
The Grand Saline Sun is not
disposed to endorse the assertion
of an exchange to the effect that
"there are too many flowers
saved for the grave," and adds:
"No! Increase the crop. Cul-
tivate the flowers of kindness,
friendship, love, charity, remem-
brance, and give, with lavish
band, to the living and the dead.
Not too many flowers, but too
little appreciation of their beauty.
Kind thoughts, kind words, kind
grow perennially—tbeae for the
living. Loving remembrance for
the dead, of Edeoic bloom, cul-
tivate and scatter o'er the
mounds of the loved and lost—no
not lost, but only waiting on the
other shore, where there are no
graves, or sorrowing hearts, and
where flowers bloom forever;

THE ROAD QUESTION.
There is no questioning the
fact but that the troubbs of
the farmer would be great-
ly lightened by the construc-
tion and maintenance of good
roads to the county site, or
their trading point, The present
mode of working and repairing
country roads amount to nothing
more than the temporary filling
in of ruts and breaks in the road
bed to be washed out by the first
hard rain, when the same sap-
shad process ia ajain repeated.
A good road, says Successful
Farming, is one which is fit for
service whenever occasion de-
mands, during the whole year,
one which has only a slight re-
sistance in front of the wheels,
one that will shed and retein rain-
water, one that requires little ex-
pense for repairs and will remain
serviceable for generations to
come. Truly a good road is a
convenience, while poor road
are expensive and anything but
Of those whose business re-
quires the use of them no other
class of country's citizen deserve
to have these benefits more than
does the agriculturist. Through
his brain and labor he extracts
from nature the crude materials
existing in the earth, and offers
them to the consumer in the form
of a substantial and digestible
food substance, upon which all
humanity must subsist. His
prosperity determines the pros-
perity of the nation. All human
beings owe their existence to
him—without food, existence is
impossible. His occupation is a
noble one, and has many pleas-
ures and advantages, but it has
also many disadvantages, one of
the pressing disadvantages with
whioh he must contend and upon
which much of his hard earned
profits have been spent is the
poorly constructed country road.
Here is met a peculiar condition
of affairs. We find those deserv-
ing the largest share of good
roads having the least, those de-
serving the greatest benefits
from good roads having the poor-
est highways, those who can
least afford to stand the enor-
mous expense of bad roads hav-
ing the greatest number of them.
Still more discouraging in the
fact that those who should take
the deepest interest in the good
roads, are the ones to take the
least concern in them.
This is a good time to be think-
ing about making good roads.
Get your county authorities to
employ an engineer to lay out a
new route around the bad hills
and superintend the working
force with an intelligent idea of
what ought to be done.
FUNERAL SERMONS FAR APART.
Catarrh Cannot Be Cured
with LOCAL APPLICATIONS, as they
cannot reach the seat of the disease. Ca-
tarrh is a blood or constitutional disease, and
in order to cute it you must take internal
remedies. Hall's Catarrh Cure is not a quack
medicine. It was prescribed by one of the
bast physicians in this country for years, and
is a regular prescription. It is composed of
the best tonics known, combined with the
best blood purifiers, acting directly on the
mucous surfaces. The 'perfect combination
of the two ingredients is what produces such
wonderful results in curing Catarrh. Send

On the first occasion Mr. Phillips
had Just finished his ramrks at the
graveside when the supposed corpse
knocked on the coffin lid and asked to
be released from his prison. Twenty
years later Mr. Phillips again stood by
the grave of the same man. This time
he preached a second funeral sermon.
The corpse did not knock on the coffin
lid; the coffin remained- unopened. The
man stayed dead.
A number of persons who heard the
first sermon also heard the last. It
was a remarkable coincidence.—Sterl-

Desire for Higher Social Prominence
Pitt was induced by Sir John Sin-
clair to constitute a board of agricul-
ture toward the end of the eighteenth
century, and stake him the president.
Having enjoyed hi# office for a lew
years, Sinclair began to desire promo-

Pitt," he wrote to the prime minister,
"don't you think the president of the
board of agriculture should be a
"Dear Sir John Sinclair," replied
Pitt, "I entirely agree with you. I have
therefore appointed Lord Somervllle
to succeed you as president of the
board of agriculture."
Sir John Sinclair went about wring-

me, dear me—it was such a willful
misunderstanding! "—Fortnightly Re-
