Austin, Tex.: "Well, lie certainly made a clean sweep!" is the universal comment over the Capital City today in discussing the appointments of Gov- ernor-elect Campbell. The naming of the new officials has been anxiously awaited, and their appearance in the mornittfL paper caused the gossip mill to commence grinding overtime. A number of the appointees are not known here, while others have long been recognized as strong men in Tex- as. The many causes for the defeat of this, that and the other man are now being put forth, and the "pull" the fellow had who landed the place.

m S8i*: THE FALL OF JERICHO A STORY OF THE CONQUEST OF CANAAN ■y tkaMiii«fcway aad Byway" Pr«acber. MOOK (Copyright, IMS, by the author, W. 8. Uioii.) Scripture Authority:—Joshua, chap- ter 6. : :• t« !• i* >• (• '• !• I SERMONETTE. "And the Lord said unto Joshua, See, I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valor." God gives men visions of great victories that are possible of realization because his om- nipotence is behind them. Men dream of conquest. Men plan large things apart from God. But the dream never be- comes anything but a dream and the plans "gang aft a-glee." What disappointments life holds for those who plan and work and strive apart from God. Solomon, the man of rare gifts, and wonderful achieve- ments, turns at last from the sphere of human endeavor, which Is temporal, and cries: "I know that whatsoever God doeth, it shall be forever;" Joshua early in his career as leader of the children of Israel caught this vision of the...

UNDERSTOOD WHAT WAS SAID. L In no Other Way Can Actions of Cat Be Explained. As striking a cat story as I have heard in a long time comes from Al- ton, N. M., and is vouched for abso- lutely, says a writer in the Boston Record. The cat was accustomed to visit the next door neighbor after each meal to be fed and petted, bringing also two kittens. , One of the women at the house thus visited, who had entertained a dislike for cats, finally, on observing the ani- I, expressed aloud a liking for the kitten and said she intended to ask to be allowed to keep it. The next day when Mother Cat came for her bits only one kitten ac- companied her, but she took away some choice morsels for the one left at home. This continued several days, when the woman who had first ex- pressed intention to get the kitten which the cat was feeing, remarked that she had given up wholly the idea of securing the gray kitten. All three felines appeared at the next meal and have done so since. TERRIBLE ITCHING SCA...

No stranger who has visited your great American cities can fail to be deeply impressed with the swift and enormous development of a new type of civilization. If that stranger knows England' well, he cannot help making comparisons between the two coun- tries. And taking a wide, impartial view, I • think any candid observer must be driven to the. conclusion that the American continent will develop not only at a very different rate of speed from England, but also very largely in widely different directions. What does this mean? It means, says Henry Arthur Jones, in Atlantic, that either the older nation will drop be- hind on a different track, or that the younger and more impetuous nation will drag the older nation headlong with it On our side we hear plaintive bleatings about the Americ...

Is there—can there be—a man more lonely than one returned from a far country, who has been out of his home land for 20 years, and comes back when his parents are dead, his old friends dispersed, and the old nest has passed to other occupants? And can his loneliness be more emphasized than when his return syncronizes with Christmas? That was my condition when I re- visited the mother country. With a beating heart and straining eyes I had looked for the first sight of dear old America after having left it as a lad, hardly a man, some 20 years ago. I was back—not to home—I had no home now. My heart began to fail me, my splits decline, when I reached the little country town near which I had been born, and where I had fleet- ed the golden hours of childhood. No <me knew me. In the churchyard I laid a wreath on the graves where lay dear old father and mother. I looked at our hous...
