A Texan's Experience in 800th Africa.
Mr, J. T. Williams, of Wilson
county, has just returned from
South Africa where he spent several
months. He left Texas very much
in sympathy with the British in the
war with the South Africa repub-
lics, but sentiment changed with
experience. He saw a great deal
and tells it well. We take the fol-
lowing extract of an interview with
Mr. Williams from the Floresville
Mr. Williams says a private sol
jdier in the English: army is not re
spected by the officers over him any
more than if lie were a dog, an ordi
j nary dog. He does not dare
speak to an officer. If he wishes to
communicate with the colonel of
his regiment, for instance, he must
talk to a corporal, the corporal goes
to a sergeant, the sergeant to a lieu-
tenant, the lieutenant to a captain
the captain to the major, and the
major to the coionel. This does
not suit a man raised in free Am
erica, where every man is a sover
eign. He says Cecil Rhodes
caused the war. He wants the rich
mines of the Transvaal and will
control them when England wins,
which she will do because of her
strength. He says there were nev-
er better soldiers than the English
but ihat the Boers will not fight un-
less they are behind breastworks
rocks. Alter Mafeking was reliev
ed, while the people were half-
starved, a special train came
loaded with good things to eat (on
would suppose) but, instead, it was
loaded with evergreens for decorat
ing the town in honor of the Queen’s
birthday. Men who were too weak
to walk would lean against some-
thing and shout “God Save the
Queen.” He had no objection to
them shouting for the queen and
every man can have one of his own.
Mr. Williams has ho queen, but
there is a suspicion abroad that he
has selected one and only awaits
her consent to install her as queen

It has been definitely decided by
the Board of Regents of the Univer-
sity ot Texas to offer board and
lodging at University Hall next year
at a cost not to exceed $10 per
month. This will include light, tuel
and bathing facilities. The Hall
will accommodate more than 150
students. With the free tuition
there is no cheaper school in the
country than the University of Tex-
as. A number of student clubs
lived at the Institution at an expense
not exceeding $8 per month" per
member, during the past session.
If any one imagines that societies,
guilds or preachers run a church he
is mistaken. In every church there
is one woman who is at the bottom
of everything that happens in the
church, and the preacher who does
not please her might as well resign
at once, for he will find, sooner or
later, that he is not “useful” to the
parish. In some churches there is a
great quarrel going on as to whether
the bread at the Lord’s supper
should be the real bread or wafers
made for the purpose. A St. Joe
preacher had both kinds, and to the
one influential woman, who insisted
upon bread, he gave bread ; to the
other ninety-nine he gave wafets.
He was discovered by the influential
woman and eventually went to an-
other field. The next preacher to
come was defiant and used wafers;
the influential woman could use
wafers or go without. At first,
most of the members applauded his
“bravery,” but when the influential
woman and her supporters withdrew
their subscriptions, it made wafers
too expensive for those who wanted
them and the preacher’s usefulnass
is over in that church. It is not the
Lord who is a hard taskmaster to
the preacher; it is some woman who
runs the church.—Atchison Glob*.

xnsn named Fay, a resident of Cali-

refused to surrender his valuables,
and fired a shot at one of the rob-
bers, but missed. Thereupon the
robbers fired, one shot entering
Fay’s mouth and coming out at the
back of his head, killing him almost
instantly. The robbers stopped the

Our party left Denison at an early
hour. It consisted of Col. Rear-
don, Francis Harnest and the writer
and his wife. Our objective point
was the home of Mrs. T. F. John-
son, who resides in the Iron Ore
settlement, distant irom Denison
five miles. The visit was the ful-
fillment of a promise made a long
time ago. The time to start for the
country is at early morning. It
was a remarkably fresh and beauti-
ful July morning. The wood*
through which the road conducted
us were lighted by the bright sun-
shine and enlivened by multitudes
It seemed like a new sensation as
we rode beneath the resounding
arches of these noble woods.
An hour’s delightful drive and
we crossed the bridge at Iron Ore
and in a few momenta reached the
home ot Mr*. Johnson, where we
received a moat hospitable welcome,
and in a few moments were as
much at home as if we lived there.
We soon had on the table a pail of
spring water which was converted
into iced lemonade, the ice being
bronght from Denison.
The Johnson farm consists ot 13s
acres. Mr. Tobnson died about a
year ago. He was an invalid for a
number of years. For the two
years previous to death he was un-
able to give the farm any attention.
His wife who is an intensely practical
woman, a splendid example of Yan-
kee energy, assumed the manage-
ment of the farm. She attended to
the cows and horses and she follow-
ed the plow and planted the crops
and lovingly nursed a sick husband.
It was hard work to make both
ends meet. There was medicine to
be bought and doctor’s bills to be
paid. Ninety-nine women out of a
hundred would have given up the
battle in despair, but Mrs. John-
son, a woman of splendid health
and courageous spirit, could always
discover the sunlight behind the
darkest cloud, and she toiled on,
fought the good fight and won.
The cold, bleak winds, the sleet
and snow of winter, did not dismay
her; there was scarcely a day last
winter that Mrs. Johnson did not
drive to town and sell something
that brought her a little money.
We have seen her seated m a wag-
on alone on the streets of Denison
in a blinding snowstorm.. We have
seen her making her rounds to cus-
tomers when the cold northern
blasts were burdened with sleet that
,cut like a knife.
Of courae a woman like that must
win the fight, it is in the nature of
things. They are the same kind of
women who a hundred or more
years ago crossed the Alleghanies
and cut out the path to a better life,
a higher civilization, Mrs. Johnson
lifted a mortgage on the farm, the
clouds rolled away and she saw the
sunlight that was a beacon to her of
success. We admire a brave man,
but we are always ready to worship
at the feet of a brave woman. We
might tell a great many more things
to the credit of Mrs. Johnson. It
is a great thing for a lone woman to
conduct succesafully a 135-acre farm
with a helpless husband on her
hands. Such women deserve news-
Recently Mr. Gaskill haa assist-

has been the greatest fruit year that
Texas haa seen in a decade. We
noticed in all the orchards a plethora
of fruit. At this veiy moment
there are thousands of bushels of
apples and peaches rotting on the
ground. This is the year of abun-
The Johnson farm ia supplied

clear water that bubbles up from

feet deep but you can tee the bot-
tom. There is always something 99 ia the
dated with a tpring'that re-

days. It goes hand in hand
the old oaken bucket. The dearest
spot about the old homestead is the
spring. The spring on the Johnson
farm is romantically situated in' a
grove of forest trees. There was a
cup hanging to a tree and the crys-
tal water was handed around.
There seems to be e kind of perpet-
ual springtime about the piece
where the cold water issues from
the ground—a tresbneta and a
greenness that are ever renewed—
the grass never fades, the ground is
never parched or frozen, there is a
warmth there in winter and coldness
in summer. Mrs. Johnson served
an old-fashioned country dinner.
Those country dinners are a revela-
tion, especially when the hoateaa un-
derstands the art of cooking. A
smart, iprogreaaive woman like Mrs.
Johnson is very sure to be a good
After dinner we went to the

We took a new route home, the

cooler, the evening shadows deepen-
ed and night threw her mantle over
the earth. Out of the corn fields
we frequently heard tbs plaintive
notes of Bob White. We passed
the cotton mill and were surprised
to see what a village has: sprung up
out there. We saw troops of voung
girls, operatives at the mill. For
years and years the great mill has
been as silent as an old castle
crumbling to decay. Now all
life and bustle, and from out ot the
great-throated chimney rolls volumes
of smoke that proclaim a new era
for industrial Denison.
We were indebted to Col. Rear-
don for one of the most delightful
and profitable days ever spent in the
country and we hope always to
meet at the end of our journey such
royal entertainers as Mrs. John-
son and Mr. Gaskill. ii.

A friend of the Gazetteer who
has a grievance has banded in the
following. He is a hard-shell dem-
ocrat who Has little use for the man
of gall, even in politics. Just listen:
Among the other trials and tribu-
lations which the great reading pub-
lic must endure, while We have our
troubles in Cuba, in the Philippines,
and doubts and cares and fears as to
China, a charitable but suffering
public must listen to and be told of

forthwith gets him a dry goods box

hall or rushes into the newspapers
and tells just when and how he came
This man reminds us ot a little
shrimp in a small puddle by the sea
lashing hia little tail in terrific fury.
The shrimp imagines that he is
muddying the water ot the entire
ocean, and the flopper verily be-
lieves that he changes the destinies
of the world.
As a rule this flopper takes up the
oldest chestnuts of his new political
party and saws the air as he howls
them to suffering, sweltering human-
ity. O, why did he not wait till the
dog days are over? For mercy's
take, Mr. Flopper, wait till frost
falls—wait till Christmas comes ;
wait, wait, wait.
Then again we suggest a fair cul-
tivation of the grace called modesty.
If you, Mr. Flopper, have been
wrong all your life, if you have been
for many years in the wrong crowd,
if you have gotten lost from your
crowd, just how do you figure it out
that you not only know more than
the old party you have deserted but
