irl "t WEATHERFORD PEMOCRAT, WOMAN'S EDITION. ertpir?i§©enGe§ KDI) LEMAN. Kditor Tj istorv—a story—a trite story, fl If the hand of genius were to 1 pen the story of our charming little town, so full of events won- derful, startling and horrible, it would read like a romance; so, in order to gain the ear of an incred- ulous public, it is not unfortu- nate, perhaps, that the portrayal be prosaically drawn. The county of Parker is thirty miles square, was created by an act of the Legislature of Texas, approved December 12, 1855. John, James and Sam Woody were the first persons to locate in the county, March, 1853. During the years of 1854 and 1855 there was a great influx of people into the county. On the 26th day of January, 1856, Gov. E. M. Pease issued the State Patent granting to the county of Parker 320 acres of land for the county seat—Weath- er ford. At the time of the first sale of lots, June, 1856, there was only one log cabin and one tent within one mile of the present court...

We must explain our mission, and strive as best we can to fulfill it. We are dazzled in these end of the century days with our achieve ments along all lines, and we feel that while reaching out into the infinity of intellectual devel- opment, we are reaching up to ward God through the medium of organized benevolence and chris- tian charity. But there are still dark corners and shadowy nooks, and as earnest workers we should strive to throw the search-light of truth into these dark places of earth.

I 1 WEATHERPORD DEMOCRAT, WOMAN'S EDITION. WOMAN SUFFRAGE THIS being a woman's edition, I deem it not out of place to ex- press herein, as an average woman, my views 011 an important ques- tion, "Shall woman have a voice in the making of the laws that govern her? I do not "clamor" for equal suffrage for myself— care nothing whatever about it— but, as a mere matter of justice, I should like to hear a sensible answer to the question, "Why should a woman not vote?" I think the average woman often asks herself the question, but whenever she ventures to ask if of husband or brother, the look of horror and contempt that meets her gaze, quickly recalls her to herself. Why should the matter be looked upon with such contempt and ridicule, except upon the old grounds of incompetency, infer- iority, and the idea that woman's sphere lies entirely within the domestic circle. I have heard both men and women say that a woman cannot mingle with the crowd around the polls without lowering herself; t...

Who works for glory misses oft the goal; Who works for money coins his very soul. Work for the work's sake then, and it may be That these things shall be added unto thee. Kenyon Cox. Painting Among the Ancients. The first pictures were attempts to make ideas known by distinc- tive characters, and resulted from the very natural desire of the primitive peoples to communicate with the absent and to record events in their lives so that those who came after them might learn their history. These early efforts were necessarily very crude, but they were the first steps toward writing and toward art, proper. Hayden says, "in what country painting orginated is nearly as difficult to discover as it is to find a country where it never existed at all." Picture writing, or hiero- glyphics, c...

In the investigation of the origin of music we are met by as many difficulties as those by which the searcher for the north pole is confronted. Unlike architecture, sculpture and painting, we have no specimens of ancient music by which to acquaint ourselves with its rise and progress, and with the laws which governed it in ancient times. One thing we do know, however, and that is that it has been cultivated in some form by all nations, even by the most un- civilized. "We trace its existence through the beautiful philosophies and mythologies of the Greeks; have its mysterious power symbol- ized in the Homeric legend of the sirens, whose sweet songs lured the ill-fated mariners to destruc- tion; find its images engraven up- on the ancient tombs and obelisks of Egypt, everywhere gilding the twilight of antiquity with its sug- gestive presence." .Since we...

Motto, "Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own work praise her in the gates." í^'T'hb Coming Woman, "or the 1 woman coming—down the street on a wheel—is causing a ripple of amusement, ridicule, in- dignation, we hope not of fear, in some parts of the land; but in Texas, land of glowing sunshine and fresh breezes, may we not for a time have respite from this upheaval of emotions? Can we not show to the world that our equilibrium is not so easily dis- turbed ? Woman is now like a child that has been brought up under too much restraint. She is wild over the discovery of hitherto unknown powers, resources, and unused priviliges. It seems plain that this stage of half-formed ideas and consequent imperfect perform- ances is a natural one in the de- velopment of future womanhood; besides we must learn what not to do as well as what to do. It will be many years before the "New Woman" w...
