RANDOM THOUGHTS. Newspaper Personallty-Contentand Discontent. AfttT a rest of several months perhaps The Bulletin's readers may be able to bear patiently with "Random Thoughts" for a short period. 1 wish to emphasize the fact in again beginning this series of articles that any reader is at perfect liberty to quit reading these thoughts at any time and the author will riot feel himself personally aggrieved. These let- ters are not continued because of any desire for celebrity but mere- ly because many readers of this paper have repeatedly asked for it so when you tire of . them kindly say so. I like the notion of the readers of a paper feeling that personal in- terest in it that prompts them to make friendly suggestions to the editor and it there is anything connected with the paper of which I am inclined to be too proud it is the feeling among the readers that The Bulletin is "my" paper. This is a wonderful inspiration to an editor and every time -He thinks of his paper in this ligh...

THE EXPERIENCE PARTY. How the Dollars Were Raised by the Church. Everybody has been looking for ward to the experience party which came off according to announce- ment at Robnett Hall Tuesday night. The feature of the evening was the eflorts made to raise the 'required funds. Most of .the. re. rjorts were in rhyme and The Bul letin man was surprised at the poetical talent developed. It was immense and we would like to re produce some of the efforts but will have to content ourselves with briefly telling how it was'done. Mrs. Tannehill made and sold Hueing raising not only a dollar for the church but a dollar for a blind woman and one for each of the other eight churches in the townj Mrs. G. I.

THE TOWN COW. Her Appetite For Green Sorghum. Thk Bulletin man believes in a cow law that will fit the town cow. The average town cow can hardly be held back by an ordinary town ordinance yard gate barbed wire fence or any other ingenuity of man. The reason for saying this to-day rather than any other day is because with the thermometer 90 in the shade and the mud knee deep he has been kept busy chas ing three lovely town cows out of asorgum patch that has been over- flowed for the past week. It was a delightful occupation at such times as the writer could get high enough above the mire and mud to contemplate his surroundings. At other times he was kept too busy digging the mud out of his ears and nostrils to be given over very much to contemplation on pleas ant subjects. Rubber boots proved a failure and nothing less than an arrangement such as ocean divers use would have done much good. The most remarkable thin about those cows was their forget fulness for they would pass right by...

it- TATTOO THE WEDDING RING. A British Social Reformer Suggests Bran il- ia Beta Bride and Groom. Dear Sir I wish in all earnestness to make known a suggestion that would save many a broken heart among the sensitive and many a breach of promise case among the mercantile and would considerably lighten the labors of the police courts and law oourts. My sug- gestion is that every married man and every married woman should have a cir- cle tattooed around the third finger of ine leic nana in place or or as well aa the wedding ring. This would be a sign that could never be taken off or effaced and would therefore leaf? e a lesser mar gin for the treacheries and tricks of biga- mists and other great and small offenses against law society and individuals. To make this proposition practical and distinctive of course certain rules would have to be made. For instance any un- married man or woman tattooing their third finger to be heavily fined. Every widow and widower to add a distin guishing ...

RANDOM THOUGHTS. Texas Colleges and Colleges Abroad. Every summer Texas is afflicted with a horde of school agents from abroad who curie down into our land of education and good schools and lay such pretty pictures before the parents that their boys and girls are sent a thousand or two miles from home at an enormous expense in many cases to attend schools much inferior to those at home. It is veryt well after our young men and young ladles have taken complete courses in our best colleges and universities to send them to the leading school of the east or of Europe for that matter if parents can afford this luxury but it is to be deplored that stu dents are sent abroad to colleges of ordinary or doubtful standing who have not so much as completed the public school course. We have in Texas schools grad ing equally as high as any except a few of the well-known leading schools and in most of our colleges the curriculum is much more com plete than in many old colleges in the older states....

COURTING BY WIRE. xh mb Gashed Over the Ticker but Was Disenchanted on Sisrlit. A telegraph operator in a Bo3ton. office once met with bitter disappointment early in his career by falling in love with a young woman at the other end "of one of the old Western Union wires. She used to say sweet little nothings when a lull in the business gave her an oppor- tunity to use the wire. The young man worked in the Boston office and had the reputation of being a "fly" sender and able to receive what he could send an all important factor in the 'sizingup"of an operator. The woman was prond to have him say even "6m" or "tre" (good morn- ing or good evening) to her and the other girls on the wire with whom he never condescended to exchange even these or- dinary salutations were jealous. As time wore on their conversations over the wire became longer and more frequent. Fi- nally an invitation to come to Boston and visit one of the theaters was given and accepted. The Lothario of the wire was to w...
