| HOW THE GOYBBHMEHT TAKES
PART, OF THE OLD SOLDIERS.
Through the courtesy of Capt.
Tom Wright we have had the
pleasure of perusing a letter trom
H. H. (Chic) Warner, who i* now
an occupant of the government Old
Sold ten’ Home at Danville, Hit.
An old Denitoniant remember
Chick, when he was one of the
most popular passenger conductors
on the M., K. A T., a position he
held acceptably for fifteen year*.
He wtt a whole-souled, free-heart
ed fellow tod everybody liked him
That was many year* ago and
Chick ran up against hard luck
after he left here. With the per-
mission of Capt. Wright we make
the following extract from this let-
ter, giving a description of the
Home. The old soldiers there
certainly have a pleasant home in
which to spend the dosing years of
life. We wish the state Confeder-
ate home at Austin could do
well by the old veterans who fought
for the Lost Cause:
I will try and give you a descrip-
tion of this home: The grounds
cover 640 acres, well timbered,
with two large groves, each larger
than Forest Park in Denison, with
Gknhlal ' I 1 ^*te ,n center 011 which
JtnpAiantG. am twelve boats free for use at any
time. Draw a half circle the same
as a race track, and place sixteen
barracks from Company A to P
around the circle, one hundred feel
apart, with the mesa ball in the
center, and you have our sleeping
quarters. The barracks are all
butlt alike, three stories with base-
ment. Every building iu the home
it brick, with all modern improve-
ments—hot and cold water, electric
lights, baths and toilet rooms—ev-
erything up-to-date and grand.
Quite a distance from the barracks
is the hospital—nothing in North
Texas can compare with it. No
three business house* in Denison
are equal to it in size. There it a

i L. B. Moore undoubtedly antici-
pates the biggest holiday trade in
hit line ever experienced in Deni-
son, judging by the large stock of
beautiful and desirable goods he has
on exhibition. His store is a veri-
table palace. He came* no shoddy
goods, everything it ornamental or
useful, and the very latest designs,
and every article in the store will
be sold on a strict guarantee, to be
exactly as represented. Hit stock
of diamond goods runs into the
thousands of dollars, such as pins,
shirt studs, rings, etc. In hit show
cases are displayed hundreds of
watches of every style and price,
and all the standard movements. A
lady or gentleman can get just what
is wanted here at very close figures.
In other cases are beautiful sets of
pearl handled silver knives and
forks, solid silver tea and table
spoons, of all weights snd designs,
most desirable presents for a hus-
band to select for his wife. In the
cabinets are displayed a brilliant
array oi cutglass articles and solid
silver ware. In the racks are gold
mounted silk umbrellas, parasols,
gentlemen’s walking sticks in gold
and silver—a large variety to select
trom. There is nothing that you
can call for in this line that Mr.
Moore’s efficient assistants cannot
find for you. It would require' a
page of the Gazetteer to enumer
ate all the beautiful and desirable
articles that are now on exhibition
or stored in the safes and drawers
at thia old and popular jewelry es-
tablishment, but you can rest as
sured if you want any article in his
line you need not go away empty-
handed. It it, however, advisable
■o call early and get the first pick,
for there will bs a ruth before
the holidays. Mr. Moore’s word
is as good as his bond and what he
tells you can be depended upon, and
furthermore he has earned the rep-
utation in the many years that he
has been in business in Denison of
having the cheapest jewelry house
in this part of the state. He buys
for cash and sells for cash, conse
quently he does wbst many other
dealers cannot do, sells at a small
profit. His motto is to do a big
business on a close margin, and ex
perience has proven his method to
be a success.
Don’t fail to drop into Moore’s
before purchasing no matter what
promises are held out to you. Look
around and then buy. You’ll be
better suited where there is a large
and up-to-date stock to select from

Prof. Carlton, in the Bonham
News, says: “The greatest advocates
of the general theory of evolution
are either agnostics or atheists, and
none of these have any use lor God,
for revealed religion, for miracles,
for spirit, for personal immortality,
for morals, for free will.”
That is what Carlton says. Mott
of them aie undoubtedly agnostics
on many propositions, and they
would probably confess if asked
that they don’t know as much about
God at Prof. Carlton thinks he
does. Miracles belong to the do-
main of the supernaturalist, the
theologian, not to the acientist.
Some “great advocates” of evolu
tion believe in immortality, some do
not, and others confess they don’t
know, but who are the “great ad-
vocates” in question “who have no
use for morals ?” It it Daiwin,
Wallace, Spencer, Huxley, Buch
ner, Hieckel ? Some of these “great
evolutionists” are living, others
dead. Are those who have no use
for morals any of these ? If not

All that claims to be true science,
to be deserving of this name must
rest upon a scientific basis, that it,
upon /gets, not philosophies nor
speculations nor assumptions. As
evolution rests upon assumption it
is not true science.—Prof. Carlton,
in Bofiham Newt. .
But evolution does not rest upon
‘assumption.” It has a large array
of facta collected by years of careful
investigation and classification that
lead up to evolution. The vo’utni-
noua writings of Claries Darwin
are teeming with tacts to.which the
evolutionist points for proof of the
truth of his position. A trua *ci
entist assumes nothing not warrant-
ed by the facts. If a theory meets
all the coiditions of certain phe-
nomena, it is reasonable to ai>uoi!
that it U true. Th e is why scientists
believe in the undulatory theory of
light. It meets all the require-
ments, accounts for all the pbeqpm
ena. So with the evolution “as-
sumption”—it fits into the facts as
no other assumption does. “All
true science” must indeed “rest
upon a scientific basis.” Can Prof.
Carlton say as much ot bis theolog
ical science ?
