Stick to the Farm Boys. The Southern Tradfi farmers' boys in the South to stick to the old farm and not to believe all the talk made by politicians about the down-trodden farmers and the easy ways of making a living in a big city. The most independent class in this country are the southern farm- ers. By proper management they can always make a living and tieir job is not dependent on the will of a syndicate trust or the tinkering with the tariff by each succeeding congress. In all the big cities there are thousands of unemployed men who are capable of doing good work and who lost their jobs through no fault of their own but simply . Rubinstein.

RANDOM THOUGHTS. Some True Tests of Character. There is a saying almost as old as the hills but which is as true to-day as the day it was first utter ed: "You can judge a man by the company he keeps." This adage covers a great deal more than at first thought appears in it. A man seeks his level as naturally as water does and it takes something like a moral force pump to keep him above it. Pride sometimes keeps a man from associating with other men who are reputedly bad respect for his family may keep him from the constant companion ship of bar-room bums the fear of the censure of the Vorld may deter him from entering fully into the enjoyment of the inclinations of his real nature but there is always something by which his real level will be ascertained and made known. Closely allied to the adage above mentioned is the one that the books a man reads form a true test of his character. It may also be added that the books he does not read may also measure his desires and his intellectua...

flrrjbition. We generally think of ambition fas cruel monster that raises tyrants and tears down nations as a pas sion to be found only in men of baser natures but Carlyle says ' There is a nobler ambition than She getting of all California or the getting of all the suffrages that are on the planet just now" The fact that so many distin guished writers have spoken of ambition as a passion that is whol ly evil may be easily accounted for "when we remember that many of our renowned men of letters have started out with the desire to ob tain power and be statesmen rath er than be writers and teachers of ethics but being thwarted in their plans they took to writing as sec- ond choice;. and again that there are a great number of people who are inclined to look on the dark and gloomy side of human affairs rather than on the bright and shining part. When I read the words of one who has said: "How foolish and absurd nay how hurtful and de- structive a vice is ambition which by undue pursuit ...

1 Annie Laurie. Who is not familiar with the sweet song " Annie Laurie?" yet few know that the fair-faced maid- en was not a creature of imagina- tion but one of whose ancestry honorable mention is made in Scot- tish history. Her father was Rob- ert Laurie a baronet. In the fam ily register is found this entry; ''At the pleasure of God my -daughter Annie Laurie was born upon the 16th day of December 16S2; about 6 o'clock in the evening and was baptised by Mr.' George Hunt- er minister of Glencain." Record- ing the hour of birth is a survival of the faith in astrology. The lit- tle stranger whose advent . into life is thus announced grew to be the most beautiful lady of the day and was the heroine of the song that has made her immortal. Her brow was like the snowdrift Her throat was like the swan. Her face it is the fairest That e'er the sun shown on. The well-known lyric of which these lines form a part was com- posed by Mr. Douglas Finland an ardent admirer of "Bonnie Annie." She d...

RANDOM THOUGHTS. This world is full of cranks There are cranks of all kinds and in all stages of crankishness. Near ly every man is inclined to be er- ratic on some line and ihe man without a hobby is now the excep tion. It is a very easy matter for the mind to run in one channel. until it is unable to grasp anything but the particular thing on which it has dwelt so long. There are so many people who appear almost complete blanks on every subject until you broach the shop of their particular vocation and then they are all ears and tongue. The man who has a crankism ought not at all times to be forcing his views on the public. Concentration of thought and effort on one thing to the exclu- sion of all other things "sharpens a man's wits on his special lines but it is very doubtful if it makes the man any better or any happier. He may with his wisdom prove of inestimable value to his fellowmen but does he himself profit by it? Sometimes I think the world is running too much 'to special...

TIs Pussy's 5ay Now. From Englandwhere cats Nhave' ever been held in high esteem; and the Crystal Palace Cat Show has been for years a feature of the au- tumn season the fancy for the Maltese has come to Kew York. Angoras and Persians are well in their way and perhaps excel all domesticated felines in point of Mere good looks; but they are; del- icate creatures with less brains- than the average animal illjtem- pered and victims of diptheria. A well-bred downy Maltese is just now the favorite companion of pretty Miss Manhattan who decks her small friend with a narrow satin neck-ribbon on which; are sewed- six tiny silver bells. On these are engraved the letters of pussy's name. Mistresses who de- sire for their pets a unique ma- mentation have one of the icat s ears bored and a gold or silver but- ton screwed in.

From Rising tar.' i ' To The Bulletin The Star is all right. The big snow and cop- ious rains has put new energy in our people. The past yeari's crop is not satisfactory to many of us yet we are out in better shape than we expected. If we could ojily re- duce the cotton crop it would be much better foi us but with all the proof before us that cotton will not pay thirty Cents a day for the work done on it we go right ahead like idiots planting more cotton and at the sarrie time buying meat and bread. That is self-destruction but there seems to be no hope for a change The farmers may form clubs and resolve not to plant so much cotton but all the same the same old over-plus of cotton turns up every year and they know and we know as long as .that is the case the Texas farm- er is going into bankruptcy and ruin.

"What town are you from?" in- quired the Indianian after they had been talking for some time. : "Detroit" replied the drummer with considerable pride.. : "Oh is that so?" exclaimed the other showing interest himself and admiration. "I was in Detroit once for a week. Xhat was about two years ago. I have been pretty much everywhere else east of the Rockies and I think Detroit is the prettiest city of them all."

SOME TEXAS PERSONALS. A Few People Met on-the Rounds. It is astonishing how many clev- er people ther are. in the world when you stir around' and thus have opportunity to find them out. And how much alike folks are. In our provincialism we are uncon- sciously prone to think that the real nice people are found 'only among our own people and make their Habitat right around where we happen to set up our wigwam. This is a great mistak i. They are everywhere. They are clever hearty whole-souled generous and good natured as we are. I have never been more impressed- with this fact though 1 have known -it for a long time than on a . recent extended trip through Arkansas and Texas. I wish I had time to tell you about all the nice people I met but if 1 did there would be room for nothing else in the paper. liut I cannot tell about all the good .ellows I met.

RANDOM THOUGHTS. drift the It is so easy for a writer .to into subjects suggested by weather that I hope you will ex- cuse me this beautiful morning for saying something about the weath- er. We are all influenced bv the weather and why a man's thoughts shouldn't run with the weather I can't tell. They do run that way and when the snow falls the poet begins to think of "Beautiful Snow" and puts his thoughts into the Thythm and song of poetry. Then in the spring how natural to write "Oh spring sweet spring that comest in the spring time of the year." The poetical column of a leading southern paper is almost as good as a thermometer for register- ing the variableness of the we&jh- er and its editor is the South's favorite poet. t I met a man a few days ago and he. was hobbling along on a stick looking like he had lost all his friends. He said that the damp weather always brought on the rheumatism and neuralgia and back-ache and every other ache under the clouds and made him to suff...
