TEXAS MINING AND TKADE JOURNAL. Six Frightful Failures. Six terrible failures of six different doctors nearly sent Wm. H. Mullen of Loekland, Ohio, to an early grave. All said he had a fatal lung trouble and that he must soon die. But he was urged to try Dr. King's New Discovery for Consumption. After taking five bottles he was entirely cured. It is positively guaranteed to cure all diseases of Throat, Chest and Lungs, including Coughs, Colds, La Grippe, Pneumonia, Bronchitis, Asthma, Hay Fever, Croup and Whooping Cough. 50c and $1.00. Trial bottles free at T. P. M. & Co.'s Pharmacy. Coming, Wednesday Night, November 22. The largest Minstrel show in the world, is what is claimed for A. G. Allen's New Orleans Colored Minstrels, clean, refined and up-to-date, by colored artists (male and female), carrying twice as many people as any other minstrel company in existence, showing under canvass in a tent seating over 2000 people, pre- senting more special features than any other minst...

texas Mining and trade journal. )5 WASHINGTON LETTER. Washington, November 15,1899. Special Correspondence to Journal. men of many minds" exactly describes the | y I present attempts of the politicians to predict what will be the dominating issue in the Presidential campaign. No better proof of the correctness of this assertion is necessary than the declaration of two prominent members of the House—Messrs. Grosvenor of Ohio and Barham of Califor- nia—both Republicans. General Grosyenor said: "There will be but one issue next year and that is the financial issue;" and Mr. Barham said: uThe money question will hardly be thought of in the next campaign. It was brushed aside and lost sight of in the State campaigns. The people did not want to hear it talked from the stump. The two things all audiences were in- terested in were, first, expansion; second, trusts." Other ex- amples of contrary opinions might be given, but these will suf- fice to show that politicians differ widely, and to ...

TEXAS MINING AND TRADE JOURNAL. Here's One On Us. The Chinese beat us all hollow in labor-saving devices. The other day a Journal man was in the laundry chasing a stray sock, and noticed a queer little pad of rice paper sheets put to- gether like a calendar and hung directly above one of the laun- drymen's bunks. Each sheet was inscribed with numerous hier- oglyphics, and the proprietor of the bunk was asked what the thing meant. He replied that it was a prayer book, and went on to explain in pigeon English that he tore off a leaf every night before retiring, so as to expose a fresh supplication for the ensuing day. Seeing that the Journal sinner was shocked, he assured him that the prayers were first-class in every particu- lar—much better than he could compose himself. As nearly as could be gathered there is a sort of prayer trust in Pekin, that turns out the lithographed pads at extremely reasonable figures. They are protected by a native copyright, and if any other prayer foundr...

TEXAS MINING AND TRADE JOURNAL. FLASHES OF THOUGHT. by professor d. s. landis. The herd is very easily heard. Who finds his weakness finds his strength. Our past acts are the data for our future acts. Some men look upon virture as a sort of charity. Every action is the parent of another a little greater. Who caters to public opinion smothers his per- sonality. Civilization consists in making sentiments realities. Distance lends enchantment, but ready cash lends comfort. A fool apologizes for his opinions, but a man makes opinions. Sometimes it is harder to run in a rut than to make a new road. Nothing is sacred except character and the laws of our nature. , Each owes a debt of thought, but our creditors never press their claims. Permanence is a flatterer whose pulses are under the fingers of death. Each life has the same set of experiences, per- haps a little modified, yet the same. BETWEEN THE LINES. 'Tis hot the thought in lines I read, That I would hold as wealth of mine; I love ...

Do you know that the American peo- ple are reading a lot of tommy rot?" This volley of questions came from a man who has had ex- perience with firearms and has given more than casual attention to the matter of marksmanship. He was vexed because an acquaintance had called his atten- wind was stirring. I rested the gun on the fence and popped tion to published statements that would lead one to believe that away and Mr. Crow fell over dead. Now that was just a happen...

TEXAS MINING AND TRADE JOURNAL. tremendous distances, but the trouble is nobody can shoot ac- curately with them at such extremely long ranges." Mr. Ingalls told of the devices of target shooters to obtain a steady rest for their gun—how they lie on their backs, on their faces and every other conceivable manner in order to insure the steadiness of their aim. The best rest, in his opinion, is a box with a piece sawed out of it for the marksman to stand in. This supports him on both sides, and with the barrel of his gun rest- ing on a sack of sand or shot it is almost impossible for him to wobble. The Boer sharpshooter probably don't have time to make such rests for his rifles. The bull's eye of a long-distance target is t4 inches id diame- ter, and at the distance of 1000 yards looks about the size of a silver half dollar. Any man of ordinarily steady nerve can "draw a bead" on an object the size of a half dollar 20 feet away and hold it fo several seconds. This would appear to be an...

TEXAS MINING AND TRADE JOURNAL. 5 THE AGE OF THE EARTH. SCIENTISTS are still disagreeing about the age of the earth. They have been actively discussing the subject for the past thirty years, and yet no general agreement has been arrived at. The school of Hutton and Playfair had come to believe that the whole of eternity was at the disposal of the geologists, when Sir W. Thomson, now Lord Kelvin, astonished the scientific world by declaring that the age of our planet must be more than 20,000,000, but less than 400,000,000 years. This larger estimate has no.w been restricted by him to not much more than 20,000,000; while Professor Tait grudgingly allows some- thing less than 10,000,000. Sir Archibald Geikie showed that even the phenomena of denudation which had been adduced in sup- port of the inconceivably vast antiquity of our globe, might be accounted for at the present rate of action within such a period as 100,000,000 years. Sir. Archibald, in an address before the British Associ...
