TEXAS MINING AND TRADE JOURNAL. WASHINGTON LETTER. Washington, October 5, 1899. Special Correspondence to Journal. PRESIDENT of the United States ever received such a greeting as was given to Admiral Dewey on the streets of Washington Tuesday evening, and it is doubtful whether any President ever will, unless one gets elected by unanimous vote, which isn't probable. No matter how popular a President may be, he is the creation of a political party and he is opposed and sometimes strongly hated by a minority of the people. The ovation to Admiral Dewey, who has no opponents, was participated in by everybody, all eager to do honor to the man who had done so much to honor his country. After being escorted from the railroad station to the White House by a com- pany of United States cavalry and paying bis respects to the President and the entire Capinet, Admiral Dewey and the Pres- ident proceeded to the stand erected for them to review the civic parade, where they stood side by side, not ...

TEXAS MINING AND TRADE JOURNAL. He Took the Editor's (Who is Not Us) Place. The fellow that first laid all the poetical inspiration of the hu- man family in the lap of gentle spring never ran a newspaper, for there he would have found that we have the fall poet as well as the spring poet. One day this week we got a "tip" that we would be called on to pass upon the merits of a fall poem. The authoress of the verses said she would call "after school Friday." Now in common with thousands of other newspaper offices, the Journal has its share of "exchange fiends"—those smiling, make-your-self-at-home individuals, who drop in occasionally "to look over some of your papers." So when the fair young poetess called Friday afternoon one of our most punctual had his feet thrown under the editorial soap box, while he perused the Boer-English war news columns of the Fort Worth "Regis- ter," pausing now and then to spit and make some comment as to what Oom Paul should do in the premisses. Being qu...

TEXAS MINING AND TRADE JOURNAL. SAMUEL AND I. Samuel and I have been married nigh onto forty year, He was a blithe young farmer then, and tall as a grenadier. A "catch" for the maidens all around, with a tidy farm on the hill, And a right to the water that turned the wheel of the thrifty village mill. But he slighted them all, and courted me, and to the parson we went, And for all these years we've lived, and loved each other, en- tirely content. I was a fair young maiden then, you scarce would credit it now, To mark my tottering step, and the thin gray hair on my brow! And I toiled, and sang, and lived my life, and nursed my children four, And always managed to have enough, and something to give to the poor. And I saved and pinched, to give my sons a setting out when they wed, And three were spared, and one was laid away with the silent, dead. Oh, I remember the long, slow hours when I mended their little clothes By the kitchen hearth, when the ruddy flames high over the fore- stic...

<> TEXAS MINING AND TKADE JOURNAL. [ull Weight fULL 5TREN€ aesT Qualit I cORT WORTH UNIVERSITY, ¡ Department of Chemistry. Jfocí taortb, lEcxas, June 6. 1896. Dear Sirs: — I 'nave macie a careful chemical analysis of the Kitchen Queen Baking Powder, purchased in the market. It belongs to the most healthful and effi- cient class of baking powders manufact- ured. Those baking powders are best which— (1) Keep best. Give off most regularly the largest amount of leavening gas. (3) Leave less residual matter in the bread, and this of the most healthful kind. I have carefully compared the " KIT- CHEN QUEKN " with the leading baking powders on the market. None surpass it on any of these points and it is superior to many. 1 tr.ke pleasure in saying, by way of en- couragement to Texas manufacturers and for the benefit of the consuming public, that the Kitchen Queen Baking Powder is as near an ideal baking powder as has ever come to my notice. Respectfully, IRA CARLETOM CHASE, A.B., J'ro...

8 TEXAS MINING AND TRADE JOURNAL. 'FLASHES OF THOUGHT. by professor d. S. landts. A fool is a left-handed disappointment. The wise build towers out of the ruins of the simple. Fretting is dressing the present in the rags of futurity. Climatic conditions will develop the politics of the country. Religion should be the laugh of joy, not a dis- ease of fears and shadows. The fanatic is a wearisome drawler distorting truth to suit his conditions. Living consists in daily drawing a clearer and wider circle on the map of hope. The entrance to the guild of wisdom is at the end of the hall of long probation. WHKN THE FROST IS ON THE PUMPKIN. [Admirers of James Whitcomb Riley will read again the following from his pen, as just at this season of the year it is peculiarly appropriate. It has been read and recited time and time again, but is always read with a renewed interest.—Ed.] When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock, And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the strut- t...
