A minister lately required
two columns in the Council Grove
Republican' in orde'r to express
his views on "Futuro Punish-
ment." Religious views are
changing rapidly. There was a
time when the good eld orthodox
Baptist could express hia views
on future punishment in one
short word of four le tors.
Beginning June 1, the forces
of the Baptist church of Texas
will be set to the task of raising
$139,000 for the Texas Baptist
education commission, of which
President Brooks of Baylor uni-
versity is corresponding secre-'
tary. He has planned the cam-
paign for many months and it is
confidently expected that good
results will follow. The special
effort will continne through June

which will be employed in meet-

Negro Whipped Saturday.
On last Saturday afternoon
J. M. Blanton, who livos near
horB, while iu town was insulted
by a negro named Arnold, who
hailed from Flatonio, and was
here supposedly to phop cotton.
Mr. Blanton had somo words
with tho negro several days prior
and when ko came into town Sat-
urday tho negro brurhed against
i him on tho sidewalk, almost
'knocking him off. This Mr
Blanton did not resent at tho
time, but procured a well sea-
soned axe handle and s6on -met
tho negro again who at once
made another attack, this time
with a knife, whioh he no doubt
intended to use when he made the
first attack had Mr. Blanton
resented it. Ho struok several
times with the knife, when he
was knocked down by Mr. Blan-
ton and given a first-class boat-
ing with the axe handle. City
Marsnal Wells appeared upon
the scene about this time, arrest-
ed the negro and put him in tho
calaboose. Mr. Blanton went at
once and paid his fine, but within
a fevTminutes time the citizens
of the town refunded him tho
amount of the fine, in token of
their appreciation of his good
work. Relatives of the negro
paid his fine and he was released
during the night, and fortunately
for him he got out of town in a
hurry. Inapmuch as he swore
vengeance against any and'overy
white man in the town, there
were quite a number anxious to
meet him, and it seemed for a
while that ho was not safe even
behind the bars.
Negro Boy Arrested.
On last Saturday, ' City Mar-
shall Wells arrested a negro boy
here, about 13 years of age, on
a charge of robbing the depot
office here some time ago; also
the Katy depot office at Smith-
ville. He was' turned over to the
Bheriff of Bastrop county.

FARMERS' UNION NOTES.

District Union meets in call
session at Bartlott next Satur-
day at 10 a. m. Let all ' dele-
gates bo on hand promptly as
there is business of importance
"before the body, Tho warehouse
question comes up again and it
is hoped that wo can haye every
thing in readiness so Mat wo
may proceed to business at once,
for the time for markoting tho
orop will, soon be upon us. ,
One reasbn the farmer does
not prosper more, ho makes no
provision for markoting his orop
until it is i produced. Then he
must take what is offered.
The ginners say they are glad
to got out of tho seed business,
which is true, of course, ' for it
is a great deal of worry, v6rk
and trouble to handle the seed.
Last year the farmers were paid
$9 per ton for seed at the gin.
Now, that may have been all
the ginners could afford, but
thore was no redUctionin the
oil mill products and we somehow
feel that we did not receive full
value. Now we propose to cteal
with the miller direct, sell tn5m
in bulk, and sell to the man who
pays tho highest price.
Now, the time of marketing
our crops is fast coming, and
there are a number of good meh
who ought to join the Union,
thus getting into position to get
the best results possible,
We plant one crop oyer" year,
hoping tho price will bo good and
the yield satisfactory, but while
,we work, some -one else figures,
so when we come to sell, cotton
is down, but if we have to buy
some product of cotton the mer-
chants say it is way up. And
so it is, as the price indicates .
The Union stands for an equal
show and a square deal for all,
We have the numbers, we mako
the produce, , Let us co-operate
and secure something of what is
ours by right.
