THE PLAIN AND THE PLAIN TEXAN Vol. II. WEATHERFORD DEMOCRAT. DEMOCRAT: No. i. WEATHERFORD, TEXAS, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY, 9, 1906. Vol. XII. No. 3. The World if\ Brief. Interest has largely been centered about the doings of Congress, especially in reference to the statehood bill, rail- road rate legislation and the testimony of ex-Engineer Wallace before the sen- ate canal committee. The democratic senatorial caucus, in which Senator Bai- ley, of Texas, introduced a resolution designed to compel all democratic sena- tors to oppose the San Domingo treaty, was one of the sensations of the week, as was Gillespie's resolution in the House demanding an investigation of the Pennsylvania railroad merger. A pension appropriation bill involving over $140,000,000 will come up shortly in the House. The foreign event of largest interest is the conference of the Powers over Morocco, in progress at Algeciras, Spain. The death of King Christian of Den- mark, "the grandfather of Europe," ' was an event o...

O COUNTY CORRESPONDENCE. Dean No. 1 Happenings. The farmers of Dean are turning the earth upside down and tearing it to pieces as though they had some spite against her. Uncle Billie Brown is making great improvements on his dwelling and is fencing his yard with patent wire fenc- ing. The cold norther that blew up Sun- day made big fires unusually attractive. P. Stults was at his place north of town last week moving a house and do- ing some other repairing. Some of us were in Weatherford Mon- day seeing the officers round up the cows. We farmers would like to see them round in the whiskey gang as fast as they went after the outside cattle and jennets. Something Doing at Dean, No. 2. The Dean farmers are extremely busy just now, and are in need of a few good hands. We have only walking plows and riding plow hands need not apply.

Hugh McGraJtan, Sr. Hugh McGrattan, Sr., died at his home on North Main street at 5 o'clock Thursday mo/ning, Feb. 1, being in the 77th year of his age. For many years a respected citizen of this town and county, his life has a pe- culiar interest from the fact that he was an actor in one of the most stirring epi- sodes of American history, that attend- ing the early development of the oil in- dustry and the birth of the Standard Oil Company. He was born in St. George, New Brunswick, Feb 25, 1829, of Irish par- entage, and at the age of twenty re- moved to Bangor, Maine, where 011 July 6, 1854, he was married to Miss Sarah Campbell. Later he went to Olean, New York, and on the discovery of oil in western Pennsylvania, to the south of hini, he was led thither about i860. He became one of the pioneers in the devel- opment of the industry, and helped to sink some of the very first wells. The whole country was excited and specula- tion was rife.

r REV. F. P. FLAN1KEN S LECTURE To the Pupils of Robert's Business College. (Reported by Miss Edna Roberts.) ' 11 i i I I! !| rfl I am pleased to have the opportunity of speaking to you yonng gentlemen and young ladies this afternoon, and in thinking over what I should say that would be practical and good for you, I thought of taking that one little word pluck. That is both resolution and de- termination or courage intensified. It is the boy, the girl, the man or the woman that believes something and that undertakes to do something and succeeds because of this wonderful power of pluck, that may be in them. It is con- sidering the fact that you have energies and latent powers and that you are not only made of bone and muscle, but that you believe that you have the fibers of steel within you and in undertaking that which you can accomplish, driving with these mighty powers towards the goal of your success, turning the curves of life, climbing or ascending the up- ward steps because yo...

r THE LEGEND OF EVIL. This is the sorrowful story Told when the twilight fails And the monkeys walk together Holding each other's tails. "Our fathers lived in the forest; Foolish people were they ; They went down to the cornlmd To teach the farmers to play. "Our fathers friske 1 in the millet, Our fathers skipped in the wheat; Our fathers hung in the branches, Our fathers danced in the street. "Then came the terrible farmers, Nothing of play they knew, Only they caught our fathers And set them to labor, too! "Set them to work in the cornland With plows and sickles and flails, Pul them in mud-walled prisons And cut off their beautiful tails! "Now, we can watch our fathers, Sullen and bowed and old, Stooping over the mille', Sharing the silly mould. "Driving a foolish furrow, Mending a muddy yoke, Sleeping in m'id-wallí-d prisons, Steeping their food in smoke. "We may not speak to our fathers, For i^the farmers knew Tney would come up to the forest And set us to labor, too." This is t...

V J Regarding Expiration of Subscriptions. Subscribers to the Plain T e x a u Monthly will receive the Semi-Weekly the full time for which their subscrip- tions have been paid. There were, of course, some names on the Plain Texan list which were also on the Democrat list; part of these subscriptions were paid in advance in both instances, some were due in both instances, and others were paid in advance for one paper and behind with the other.. The dates of expiration of these subscriptions, and the amounts due, will be computed on an equitable basis, and so noted on our books. The new date of expiration will manifestly not be the same as either of the pre/ious ones. Next Monda)', February 12, Joel W.

COUNTY CORRESPONDENCE. AUTHON. Farmers are preparing for another big cotton crop. We hear of but few who will decrease the acreage this year. But little oats are being sown. The fall wheat looks like it had been having chills. Health in this community is good ex- cept colds and lagrippe. The box supper at Authon Friday night was a success, there being $55 net proceeds raised for the benefit of the school building. -Miss Vadie Mathews was winner in the contest for a gold ring, being the best looking girl. Jas- per Copeland took the cake for being the ugliest boy. Our school is moving along nicely. Patrons and students are all pleased with Prof. Jones as teacher. Mr. Derrick has been suffering with bone felons on bruised hands the past week. Jesse Grable, of Mineral Wells, was here the past week looking after milk cows for his dairy. Bob Price, of Whitt, and Mr. Mark- ham, of Aledo, were buying stock here last-week. There will be preaching at Authon next Sunday by Elder P. B. Johnson....
