Why, of course; of course!
Reports from all sections of
California promise usually heavy
crops this year. All deciduous
fruits are in good condition grain
growing rapidly in the coast and
bay sections and will soon be
ready for harvest.
The rough rice in Louisiana
and Texas outside of the mills
and warehouses is estimated at
43,000 sacks; inclusive of this
the total stock is 465,000 sacks,
out of a crop of 3,248,000 sacks,
for the two states.
It is the opinion of the Tyler
Courier that every candidate who
is out for a legislative or admin-
istrative office in Texas should
be forced to tell where he stands,
what he thinks; and what he
proposes to do if elected.
A North Dakota judge has
refused naturalization papers to
a man, who, although he had
resided six years in this country,
had not learned to speak English
at all. The judge said that if he
did not learn the language in six
years he would not make a good
citizen in a century.
The.Jefferson Jimplecute claims
that the manufacturing of the
cotton crop of Texas alone, will
make a pay roll of over $69,000,-
000 annually. Now add to this
the pay roll for the manufacture
of the rest of her raw material.
Then say it will not pay to edu-
cate her young men in the great
art of manufacturing.
The Greenville Banner reminds
its readers of the fact that the
amendment to the constitution to
be voted on in November requir-
ing those who vote to produce
their poll tax receipt was the re-
sult of a platform demand and
candidates for the legislature
ought not to be afraid to discuss
it. If they believe it will tend
to the puricication of the
ballot box and better govern-
ment, they should not hesitate to
say so, but if they believe it is
abridging the rights of the citi-
zen of affecting the interests of
society they should protect
against its adoption. They ought
not to wait until after the prima
ries and after public sentiment
has crystalized one way or the
TRAIN OUR BOYS.
The Houston Chronicle rather
exultingly alludes to the fact
that the figures of the late cen-
sus show that industry and trade
are in a flourishing condition
from the Potomace to the Rio
Grande, and that all over the
southern section of the land
prosperity abounds. But the
New York Commercial, which
takes a most friendly interest in
the South, finds that the figures
also show a lamentable lack of
skillful, trained men to manage
the enterprises upon which the
advance of the 8outh so largely
depends. Capitalists here are
constantly complaining of the
necessity that confronts them of
securing managers from the
North to prosecute their enter-
prises in the South, and, of
course, Northern men can not
enter into the details of the busi
ness with that undivided interest
which would characterize a
The Commercial believes that
one great problem before the
South today is the industrial and
technical education of her peo-
ple, so as to enable them to take
command of any enterprise re
quiring skill and knowledge in
its prosecution. Statistics show
that in the last twenty years the
population of this section has in-
creased 44 per cent; the value of
products manufactured in the
South has advanced 220 per
cent; the value of mineral pro-
ducts 575 per cent; of agricul
tural products 110 per cent; and
of all products 166 per cent; and
this increase would have been
much more remarkable had the
Southern men possessed that
energy of enterprise which comes
from practical education. The
progress recorded is wonderful,
but it is insignificant, compared
to what might have been shown,
had the South trained its people
as they are trained in the North.
The South has awakened to
the fact that it has within its
borders the materials for achiev-
ing great industrial possibilities,
but it has yet to take the most
important step toward properly
availing itself of the opportuni-
ties they offer, a step which the
Chronicle is urging it from day
to day to take. That step is
popular industrial education,
which shall prepare its people to
take advantage of the good
things which nature has pro-
vided for them. When indus-
trial intelligence spreads its
wings over this section, as it
ultimately will do, there will be
no more prosperous part of the
country than that located below
the old Mason and Dixon lin9.
When the story of Chinese atrocities
filled the papers and shocked the world,
it was the women who drew the pity and
sympathy of all. Doubtless many a wife
who beard her husband's words of sym-
pathy for these women thought with a
pang, of the blindness of men to the suf-
fering under their very eyes. It is true.
The suffering ot women in China wai
•evere btrt short. Many a wife suffers
for years with a daily agony of pain, her
swrves el lettered, her strength almost
gone, and never hears a word of sym-

The El Paso News thinks it
likely that congress will authorize
the issuance of postal currency
in denominations up to $5. These
postal notes will circulate like
bank bills, but when a holder
wishes to send a remittance by
mail he can write the name of
the payee in a space provided
for the purpose. The note then
becomes practically a check in
favor of the payee, which any
postoffice will honor upon identi-
fication. This will enable all
persons to make remittances
without going to a bank, post-
office or express office and will
facilitate businesB by mail. The
plan is simple and popular. Perry

Well ineaniDg and really worthy
people often err when Hickness and
disease come to them. Too often
they are content to follow blindly
the advice of second rate physicians,
who in nine cases out of every ton
fail to properly diagnoze tho ills
they arc called upon to cure. Too
frequently our sick people put their
trust and confidence in common, ad-
vertised pills, nervines, sarsaparillap,
and other liquid concoctions. Ter-
rible disappointments and results
come to the users of such medicines-,
sickness and disease are aggravated
—their dangers vastly increased.
Happy are the people who, when
disease has laid its hand upon them,
use Dr. Phelps' life giving prescrip-
tion, Paine's Celery Compound, a
medicine that stands without an
equal for feeding exhausted nerves,

Weakly, sickly, and disease laden

that has rescued and saved its tens
of thousands in every land.

cense and a knowledge of what

for others, should be your guide at

on his money than usual, as

It is the opinion of the San
Antonio Express that nine cent
cotton presents a good reason to
the Texas grower for holding
every year so much of his crop
as he can afford until all uncer-
taities as to the size of crop and
other elements which influence
prices are removed. It is the
rush of "necessity" cotton early
in the season which tests the
nerve of the independent pro-
ducer. The planter should have
more and the market manipulator
less of the actual money paid for
According to the San Antonio
Express the utterance of Gen.
Fitzhugh Lee on the lecture plat-
form give ample evidence that he

comprehension and appreciation

United States and Cuba to make

It is surprising how many people there are who
allow themselves to become and remain consti-
pated. They apparently do not know that this
condition poisons the entire system. Not imme-
diately of course, but after a little time as the poi-
sonous impurities accumulate they attack the vital
organs ana undermine the constitution. As a re-
sult, the victim becomes pale, hollow-eyed and
sallow, the breath is foul, the head aches fre-
quently, the strength slowly declines and the once
strong, active body becomes weak and nervous.
Prickly Ash Bitters
is a cleansing tonic and restorative just suited to
such conditions. It is a genial stimulant for the
stomach, liver and bowels, purifies the system thor-
oughly and invigorates the kidneys, conveying
strength and new life to the whole internal organ-
ism. Under its marvelous reviving influence there
is at once a brightening up in body and brain, re-
newed energy, strength, vim and cheerfulness.
