Answers to Correspondents.
**W. C. M."-S«rid«c, Mich.—We will
aniwer yoitf questions, if we can, in this
column. Please he brief.
“A. J.”—Longview, Ind.—First class
(height from St. Louis to Denison will
coat Jou $2 50 per hundred; second class,
“P. L. M. G-”—St. Joe, Mo.—The first
lot was sold in Denison, Sept. 33, 1S72.
Our population is estimated at about 30CO.
Messrs. Hoerr & Bro., are putting up a
soda water manufactory in this city.
“E. A. M.”—Hamilton, Mo.—There are
two papers published in Denison. We
don’t know whether another would pay or
not. There is nothing as convincing as a
“J. Q;”—Houston, Texas.—Examine the
paper which will be 6ent you, and you
will learn what classes of business are
represented in Denison. The leading
merchants in our city, all advertise in the
“H. W."—St. Louis, Mo.—Two or three
parties are proposing to go into the busi-
ness of selling agricultural impliments in
Denison. D. W. C. Davis, on Main
street, is a large dearler in that line. See
“Jo.”—Hillsdale, Michigan—If parties
tell you that Denison is a cut-throat town,
with nothing to support it but whiskey
shops and dance houses, they lie; and if
you think you could get away with them
tell them so.
“Tailor”—Meadville, Penn.—There is a
good tailoring establishment in connec-
tion with the "Original Star” dry goods
house, in this city. We do not know of
any one making tailoring a special busi-
ness in Denison.
“G. M. C.”—Beaver Falls, Minn.—The
prices of horses range from $60 to $140
each. Small Spanish mules are worth
from $40 to $60: American mules $75 to
$150. Texas bred horses gathered on the
prairies, taken as a lot, colts, mares and
geldings, etc., bring about $16 a head.
“S. W. D.”—Seward, Neb.—We cannot
spare the space to answer all your ques-
tions. Previous numbers of the News
will be found to contain the information
desired. We are satisfied you would like
the climate of north Texas, and know you
cannot find a better business point than
“M. C. C.”—Monmouth, 111.—The fol-
lowing is the freight schedule fromSt.Louis
to Denison: First class, $2 50; second
class, $2; third class, $1 75; fourth class,
$1 50. Hardware comes under the last
two classes. There are several hardware
stores in Denison. See the advertise-
ments of the principal dealers in this
“G. M. C.”—Beaver Falls, Minn.
Denison is surrounded with timber, but
there is prairie land a few miles from the
city, of the best quality. This part of the
State is very healthy. Grayson county,
in which Denison is located is a fine cot-
ton county. Probably two-thirds of the
present citizens of Denison are north
western men. First class Texas cows are
worth $25. Blooded cows from the north
bring $fx) to $75.
“O. P.”—Topeka, Kan.—You should
not think because we advertise a water
wagon that there are no wells, for there
are over a dozen excellent ones in the city
already, and the water the very best.
Denison is a pretty large place, and many
are not near enough to the wells to make
it convenient to patronize them, and they
prefer to buy water until they can sink
wells of their own. There is no trouble
in getting water by digging tor it, as
there has not been a failure so far.

“E. X.”—Oherlin, O.—We do not sup-
pose there arc 50 “colored persons” in
Denison. They are not mistreated as we
know of, but occupy the place negroes
usually do. If you wish to come here
solely to aid in their elevation socially and
politically on a level with the white race,
you prohably better stay away—not that
your person would be in danger, but your
services in that line would not be accept-
able. Our citizens prefer to attend to their
“E. H.”—Denton, Texas.—You are
very much mistaken if you think the
News is owned, or anyway controlled by
the M., K. & T. Ry. Co., the Town
Co.1 or any one else beside the individual
Whose name appears at the head of its
columns as proprietor. Our statements
regarding Denison are not exagerations
to sell lots, and we have none for sale.
We endevor to give a truthful report in
our local columns, of Denison matters, and
all the pay we expect for it is such as
comes from the legitimate support of a
newspaper. Is that satisfactory f
“J. M.”—Covington, N. Y.—It is our
candid opinion most varieties of fruit trees
cultivated in the North, will do well, and
produce excellent fruit and in abundance
in northern Texas. Most of the orchards
in this part of the State are young, but so
far experience bears us out in the asser-
tion. Peaches, applies, pears, plums,
quincies and cheri ies, have been cultiva-
ted in this county, in several localities, for
the past six or eight years, and the trees
grow finely and the fruit is equal to the
same varieties in the older States. We
have an excellent soil for orchards, in the
vicinity of Denison, and think you would
find it profitable to plant an orchard.
Now is the best time for setting out trees.
Mr. Alpheus Mathews, of Fulton City,
Whiteside county, III., writes to gain some
tidings of his son, Wm. II. Mathews, who
he heard died or was killed in Deni-
son. No such person has died in this
vicinity as wc are aware of. But one per-
son has been killed In this city to far, and
he was an old man, contractor for ties on
the M., K. U T. Ry.
If any one can give information of the
young man, they will please address his

'A Email minority Of tbe people
have always been afflicted with an
itching desire to fence this country in
with their peculiar political or relig-
ious notions. A' portion of them
want to do it by means cf immigra-
tion laws, restricting still more rigid-
m termed “matrimonial oasaets.
“Isay, Tom, how’s your wife?”
“She ain’t no better, I thank _yo«,
ly the citizenship of foreigners, and
tneir participation in the affairs of
government. Another portion of
them are desirous of inserting a re-
ligious test in the constitution, and
building a little pious fence around
their political garden of Eden. Ev-
ery move in this direction is a retro-
gression toward that political and re-
ligious thraldom from which our
forefathers fled, and cast them-
selves in a new world to enjoy
liberty of conscience and civil free-
dom. They found both, and the con-
stitution was the outgrowth of their
experience. Many of the original
endorses of that instrument were as
good Christians as any of these lat-
ter-day reformers, but they recogniz-
ed tbe broad principle that the coun-
try was open to Christian and Ma-
hometan and Jew and Gentile to
come here and worship God accord-
ing to the dictates of their own con-
science. With these privileges
granted, the constitution was to pro-
tect all alike, and therefore it was
made free from religious references
or dogmas of any kind. And now
comes a National Association,“form-
ed for the purpose of securing such
an amendment to the constitution as
will suitably acknowledge Almighty
God as the author of the nation’s ex-
istence and the ultimate source of its
authority; Jesus Christ as its ruler,
and the Bible as the fountain of its
laws, and thus indicate that this is a
Christian nation, and place all Chris-
tian laws, institutions and usages in
our government on an undeniable le-
gal basis in the fundamental law of
The foregoing quotation is from an
appeal which Judge William Strong
makes to all citizens who favor such
an amendment to meet in New York
on Feb. 36, to commence operations
as projected by the “National Associ-
ation, which, by the way, is the most
inappropriate name that was ever as-
sumed by such a hand of agitators.
Some of the State public school or-
ganizations have decided that the Bi-
ble is not an indispensable text book
in their systems of public instruction.
They do not undervalue the Bible as
a religious book, hut they refuse to
specifically teach religion in the pub-
lic schools, on the same principle
that the constitution of the United
States is silent on the subject. That
is all. Public school teachers are
not expected to be preachers of re-
gious doctrines or expounders of Bi-
ble texts. The book has simply-
been removed from their desks be-
cause it is not a school hook.
The “National Association” of
Christians is angered thereat, and
proposes to build a Christian fence
around the whole country, which
shall enforce its views politically,
morally, religiously and educational-
ly at the same time. Should it be
built, tlie Jews, Mongolians, and all
non-professors of religion of whatev-
er nationality will lie left outside.
The next tiling will be to make dis-
criminations inside the religious
ring, and rule upon the soundness of
sects and creeds, and then we may
expect another “unpleasantness” in
this Christian country—a bloody war
to establish the kingdom of peace.
All such troubles begin in just such
organizations as this so-called “Na-
tional Association” which will meet
in a few weeks in New York.

Tilt: “HAVE lillKNS.”
There are people who come to
Texas because they thought they
could make a living with less work
than they could at home. Instead of
seeking like sensible men and wo-
men to adapt themselves to their
charged circumstances, they are eter-
nally snarling at their discomfort
w hich they are too lazy to remedy.
As a general thing they claim to have
been "ruined by the war,” an hallu-
cination many of them labor under.
They entertain 011c another and
strangers by the hour of their former
luxury, “at home,” and dwell pathet-
ically upon the assertion they never
have been accustomed to live in this
sort of a way, or do this or that for
themselves, and intimate that they
really cannot stand “your new coun-
tries.” These are the whining
“Have Beens.” The pampered crea-
tures do not wish the winds of Tex-
as to visit them too roughly because
they have never been used to such
hardships. Contrast their silly fault
finding, comparing spirit to that
cheerful, sensible enterprising dispo-
sition w hich t characterizes the less
pretentious immigrant who has come
to make a home and shows himself
a man, although he may have served
four years in the army as a private
and been ruined by bullets and says
nothing about it.
The world has little sympathy for
thriftless, groaning “Have Beens”
who never have stayed long enough
anywhere to succeed; and who lay
the whole blame of their still being
at the bottom of the ladder on the
stupid excuse that they have never
been accustomed to hardships.
The following, which we find
in an exchange, has a pretty good
smack to it: “Why is a good
sermon like a kiss? Do you give it
up? Because it only requires two
heads and an application.”
A modern writer, who is probably
fit only for “treason, stratagems and
spoils,” says : “Everthing is fine un-

he won her.

Notwithstanding the increase in the
price of subscription last Fall, when The
Aldine assumed its present noble propor-
tions and representative character, the
edition was more than doubled during the
past year; proving that the American
public appreciate, and will support a sin-
cere effort in the cause of Art. The pub-
lishers, anxious to justify the ready confi-
dence thus demonstrated, have exerted to
to the utmost to develop and improve the
work: and the plans for the coming year,
as unfolded by the monthly issues, will as-
tonish and delight even the most sanguine
friends of The Aldine.
The publishers are authorized to an-
nounce designs from many of the most
eminent artists of America.
In addition Thy Aldine will produce
examples of the best foreign masters, se-
lected with a view to the highest artistic
success, and greatest general interest;
avoiding such as have become familiar,
tbroughjphotographs or copies of any kind.
The quarterly tinted plates,for 1873, will
reproduce examples of John S. Davis' in-
imitable child sketches appropriate to the

This Plow, within the last two years,
has established a reputation unequaled in
the history of Plows within the Counties of
Audrian, Munroe, Montgomery and Ralls,
and will, in the future, be manufactured
and sold to the Farmers of the West with
a full confidence of meeting the long-felt
a full confidence of meeting the long-felt
need of a thorough practical Riding Plow,
and one that will enable the Farmer to
accomplish nearly double the w’ork of the
ordinary Plow with the same team; with
it an old man, a boy or a cripple can do
as much as the strongest person.
NOT A GANG PLOW.
This is not what is termed a Gang
Plow, but Is simply a large Plow with
riding attachment, and bein^ so construe- I
ted that all friction is entirely relieved
from the bottom and land-side, thereby
saving nearly one-half of the power re-. >
quired to draw the common plow. Th«
Plow is outside of the wheels. Both wheels
run on the unplowed ground. The Plow
is entirely suspended by a chain attached
to a spring. It turns corners without rais-
ing out of the ground. For a two horse
mochine we use a sixteen inch plow, which
runs as light at the same depth as a ten
or twelve inch common plow. Where
three horses are use exclusively, we advise
the use of an eighteen inch plow, which
will do good work and turn an average
furrow of twenty inches, and plow from
four to five acres per day.
OUR RIDING ATTACHMENT.
To meet the demand of many Fanners
who already have a supply of good Plows,
we furnish them the Riding attachment,
to which they can, in a few minutes, at-
tach any common Plow, and wc guaran-
tee them to plow at least one acre more
per day and ride than they can with the
same plow and team and walk. The at-
tachment is furnished at $55 00, and war-
ranted. Don’t fail to investigate this mat-
DIRECTIONS FOR USING.
The directions for setting up, starting
and using this Plow, with both two ami /
three horses, are printed and furnished
with each Plow, so that any one who can
read and has any brains can never fail to
use it without the least trouble.
OUR TWO AND THREE HORSE
Is one of .the novelties of the age. With
it three horses abreast are made to pull
equal without the usual annoyance ot
Long Double-Trees, Links. Lap Rings,
Clevises, kc. It is perfectly adapted to
the common plow, and can he changed
for two horses in one minute’s time, being
a complete combination of both, and as
light as common double-tree. The atten-
tion of Dealers is particularly called to
this impliment, as the use of three horse*
for plowing is becoming extensive. We
supply the trade by the dozen, on favor-
able terms. Retail Priee, $5 00. Every
fanner wants it to use on his common
This Plow is warranted to work well,
with either two or three horses, and plow
from three to five acres per day and carry
the driver, as easily as the same team can
plow from two to three acres per day with
the best common hand-plow in use. And
should it fail to do so, return the Plow and
get vour money. Every Plow sold within
the last year was sold under this warranty
and not one has been returned.
