TRIBUTE TO OB. P. 8. OUBKKj
Friday Morning, November 1.
Nearly 15,003 people
the Bamum--Bailey circus
on the 20th iost.
The irridescent Ingala of Kansas
says he expects to succeed Mr. Pef-
fer in the Senate in 18%.
A Waco alderman has a rooster
With spurs growing out of his head,
like the horns of a Texas steer.
The weather bereau reportes that
the recent drouth was the most
extensive and general since the
berau was organized.
The Republicans of Maryland and
Kentucky are evidently in earnest
but certainly not jubilant in expect-
ing to defeat the "unterrified."
The two matchless orators—Bob
and Alf Taylor— are coming South
with their lecture, which arouses
the populace—"Yankee Doodle and
to Dixie." •
Bl" LOTTII C. EKKOR.
His pain and his sufferings are over,
But 0, what a sorrow is here,
For him who gave cheer to the living,
Dispersing dark clouds from the dear.
We know the dark chasm is yawning
For others to follow him there,
But hearts will grow faint and so weary
When told 'tis their time to prepare.
attended And tears from his loved ones are flowing—
at Waco none but the bitter can flow—
O'er a splendid manhood departed,
From temples of mortals below.
We grieve for the hearts, true and tender,
VVe kept bleeding for him who has laid
This last, sad, terrible tribute,
That millions before him have paid.
Aye, millions have paid the sad tribute
And death is still calling for more,
He cruelly smiles at our grieving,
And cruelly raps at our dooi.
If other worlds, like ours, have sorrows
In sympathy we pity those,
And fane would cairn the surging billows,
And thereby miiigate their woes.
It is thus we mourn with the mourners
For the husband, the father, and friend,
And witti soothing word —a timmed balm
These lines in tenderness we send.
Time, the great shepperd, leads us on,
E'en now untj the open door,
That never yet has known a closing
Since life began on sea and shore.
Hempstead, October, 1895.
YEARS OF INTENSE PAIN.
Mrs. Belva Lockwood the leading
advocate of woman suffrage, in the
United States has been held for
criminal libel by the grand jury o:
Washington D. C.
The liquor men of twenty-seven
States were represented at the
Liquor Dealors Association which
met last week. The liquor men are
wide awake to their interest.
With cotton going up and the
rising tide of prosperity the demo
cratic party is rapidly regaining the
confidence of the people everywhere
and a sweeping victory for 1896
seems now to be an assured fact.
Senator Hill has been campaign-
ing with Ex-Governor Campbell in
Ohio. Hill and Campbell make a
good team. The republicans are
frightened* and a democratic victory
in that republican State is not an
Near Tyler, on the 28th inst., the
wife of Leonard Bell, while returns
ing home from a visit to her mother,
was seized by some unknown per
son and her throat cut from ear to
ear, and her body cut open. The
murderer, a negro, was captured and
burned at the stake.
The bankers of this country are
now engaged in formulating and
dictating a financial policy for our
people diametrically opposed to
national prosperity and the best
interests of her citizenship. Such a
policy as they propose, if adopted,
will tend to make them richer, while
pauperizing the common people.
Ax San Antonio last Monday
Right Rev. J. A. Forest, late parish
priest of Hallettsville, was conse*
crated as the successor of the late
Bishop Nerez for that diocese, quite
a number of distinguished Bishops
from abroad being present, include
ing Archbishop Janssen, of New
The public press is, or should be,
the conservator of both public and
individual good and should not seek
to be sensational at the expense of
any man's rights. No more real
dignity should attach to any vocation
than that of a newspaper editor.
The papers of our land should be
just but generous. And never let it
be said: "They stricke heavily at
At Anderson, Indiana, on the
25th inst., a proclamation was issued
by the mayor, prompted by the ac-
tion of the Grand Army of the Re-
public, calling the citizens to meet
Nov. 1st to take action on the Cuban
question. The majors of all the
cities of Indiana will be callcd upon
to hold mass meetings of the same
kind and forward the voice of the
people to the Federal authorities.
DON'T BE HASTY.
Friends listen : Don't be hasty.
If you are hasty you are not wise.
To be hasty is rashness. To be
prompt is wisdom. Hastiness is
doing things before considering
with delibration. Doing things
promptly is acting rightly at the
In relation to friendly conting-
ences we too often conclude and act
rashly when a little frankness in ap
proaching our friends of contingent
relations would bring about an un-
derstanding so agreeable and sur
prising as to place us in far more
comfortable circumstances than we
had imagined and could congratulate
ourselves upon. Not improved
friends, but the improved conditions
of friendship would be the proper
If we rely upon a friend, let us go
to that friend in that respect and
explain the situation as we view it,
and so have a perfect understanding.
We should never act independantly
of existing relations wherever that
relation is involved in the least de-
gree. Relative obligations are the
most sacred and it costs the very
sense of honor to violate them.
Peanuts will be a very short crop
this year, according to the reports
from all over the South. The great
heat and long drought during the
late summer and early fall seriously
impaired both the quantity and
quality of the crop. The Virginia
crop will most likoly be but half
the size of last year's, and in quality
will be much below the average.
The Tennessee crop will be short,
but the quality of the nuts is better
ban in Virginia. But in face of this
depressing news concerning a great
American staple, it is reassuring to
enow that successful experiments in
raising peanuts have been made in
many parts of the country hitherto
considered inhospitable. Washing-
on and Oregon farmers have raised
good crops this year, and a Bidde-
brd, Me., farmer to have just har-
vested a good, though small crop.
The late gold discoveries in the
Arbacoochie district, Alabama, are
>ronounced the richest and most
wonderful yet discovered. One of
he old placer miner's pits of fifty
years ago was cleared out and deep-
ened, and a true fissure vein was
struck of great richness and promise.
The dirt and gravel around the vein
is full of gold, both fine gold and
nuggets, and the ore runs from
! 11000 to $2000 per ton. When one
can stand on the mouth of the pit
and see with the naked eye seams of
jold in the quartz 30 feet away
some idea can be formed of its rich-
ness. Numbers of prospectors and
experts are already on the ground
exploring and testing, and capital-
ists both in the East and West will
soon be ready to join in developing
this section on a large scale. •
Neablt one fourth of America's
population attended school last year.
Mhr. <7. JT. Watt*, druggist and physi-
cian, Humboldt, Neb., who suffered with
heart disease for four years, trying every
remedy and all treatments known to him
■elf and fellow-practitioners; believes tha'
heart disease is curable. He writes:
"I wish to tell what your valuable modi
cine has done for me. For four years I hat
heart disease of the very worst kind. Sev

Rheumatism of the Heart.

THE PRIZE FIGHT AND THE PRESS.
The press of our country is to be
congratulated in that it has arisen
to its true Southern character of sel:
respect and dignity and is crying:
"Down with the brutish prize fight."
We, have no consensus of opinion
from our exchanges, yet we know
that the leading papers all over the
union are a unit in denouncing the
arena and a demanding a cessation
of the savage practioe. This is as it
should be. No civilized nation
should tolerate this relic of the Dark
Ages. Let the press keep up thiu
battle against the "bullies" until
their day is finished, and they too
will seek some of the uttermost
isles of the sea for a habitation, as
did the Louisiana State Lottery.
Or else the prize fighting bums will
go to shoveling dirt ou railroad sec-
tions and eventually be respect-
ed by the better clas3 of working
