A SCATHING REBUKE.' Gov. Culberson Addresses the Legis- lature In Emphatic Terms. Executive Office Austin March 5. The legislature has practically been in session sixty days in which time the constitution con M 1 . a templates tnat tne work of the session may be accomplished and the fact that no measures of urgen cy or general importance have been enacted into laws impels me to call attention anew to those of larger consequence and the imper i I i r uiivtj uuty wmcn conironts you in reference to them. The long standing plighted faith of the democratc party that where they have passed into innocent hands excessive land grants to rail way companies shall be validated still remains unredeemed The grades of crime in our state involving moral turpitude are in creasing and our code of criminal proceedure enacted to encourage and encompass miscarriages of justice is permitted to remain un- changed against a just demand ap- proaching popular revolt.

The Claims of the South. ;The immense territory of the United States is now pretty well overrun Though some sections have but a sparse population the square miles of unbroken wilder- ness are chiefly those embraced in the Indian reservations. In course of lime these will be surrendered to civilization by the vanishing "wards of the nation" and the nerce land nunger 01 our restless classes will be appeased. . When there is no more free land to be occupied the sudden and un- exampled migrations of the past quarter of a century will cease. But there will be ebbs and flows of population according as fortune may seem to beckon or repel. When the restless fever of land oc cupation subsides we shall be able to appreciate resources and riches all about us which are now almost unknown. The great wave of mi- gration has hitherto been to the boundless West where farms could be had for the asking and where the inducements were irresistable. In the head-long m-h to the new state.- the attraction...

Riding on a Wheel. The proper position for a bicycle rider is in the first place an up- right one. He should push nearly straight downward with his legs not backward as one must do who leans far forward. His arms should not be rigid and extended their full length but a little bent and the handles can be easily adjusted to bring this about. The reason for the bent or slightly bent arm is" evident after a moment's thought. If the arm is stiff rigid and ex- tended tp its full length the "pull" which you give the handles on go' ing up hill or indeed while run- ning along a level road is a dead pull. There is no life in it. Each jar to the machine is a jar to your body your head and neckj and consequently a jar to your whole system. On the other hand it you ride with your armsli little bent and acting as a kind of a buffer to all jarring influences they will save you an injurious though un- noticeable shaking-up each time 3Tou go out. The ony way inf which you. will notice a change "will...

f Have You Seen. THE HANCOCK ROTARY DISC PLOW? HurlbutH'dware Go. Agk Brownwood Bulletin. Entered at the postoffice at Brown- wood Tex. as second-class mail matter. Published Every Thursday by WILL H. MAYES - Editor and Prop'r The present legislature will go down in history as the excurting legislature. The McGregor Observer issued last week a very fine special edit- ion that would have been a credit toia much larger town. It does seem that the railroads haye sized up the Texas legislature asra cheap affair. Railroad passes were never before so freely used on. that bodv. The newspaper man" who does not think his paper worth anything is pretty apt to be correct about it. He is in the best situation to be the judge of its real value. The patent side of one of our appreciated exchanges last week contained a beautiful thanksgiving page. So much lor the privilege of having some syndicate edit vour paper.

RANDOM THOUGHTS; The daily press which deals out its columns of society gossip and scandal every day claims that such reading matter is demanded by its readers and that there would be no vicious literature but for vi- cious tastes. While there is much of good in the daily papers the bad has lately become predomi- nant and it is no infrequent thing to hear a man say that he will not takea daily paper into his home for his family to read. It does seem that it i6 time to call a halt in this matter and that an obscene newspaper should be suppressed just as other obscene matter is. Some of the papers have lately taken up the fad of printing illusr trations of very doubtful propriety and it really looks like an effort is being made to create a taste for the lowest class of reading by attract- ing attention to it with the cheap vulgar and sensational pictures. The daily papers misrepresent their patrons when they state that there is a growing demand for this kind ot reading matter. It is n...

Ignorance of the Bible. Take this tfiatter of ignorance of the Bible Recent statistics show that it exists to an extent incon- ceivable to any person a genera- tion ago in college students. And this ignorance is disclosed not in attempted religious instruction but in the study of the ordinary branches of a literary education in bur universities and colleges. The pupils are entirely unable to un- cerstand a great mass of allusions in the masterpieces of English poetrv and prose. Some of these pupils are victims of the idea thatfdians and was busy and didn't the Bible should not be read by the young for fear that they will be prejudiced in a religious way before their minds are mature enough to select a religion for themselves. Now wholly apart from its religious or from its eth- ical value the Bible is the one book that no intelligent person who wishes to come into contact with the world of thought and to share the ideas of the great minds of the Christian era can afford to Be ignora...

His Buffalo Coat. '.'A buffalo coat yes sir" an- swered the Louisville man who had spent some years in Texas. "I got that when the plains were covered with the short-horned ani mals. Thai reminds me of an ex- perience I had thrilling too and it will never again fall to the lot of any man living. I was one of a party of a dozen bound for New Mexico. We had by nightfall on the third day out reached a small creek near the boundary line in southwestern Texas. Sloping out from both sides of the creek were banks that rose to such a respecta- ble size that it was tiresome to climb them. These banks wero covered with a rank growth of grass that reached to- our knees.- The hill Moped up to the south and down to the north quite ab- ruptly. At the foot of the hills to the north was a clump of young cottonwoods. This made an ideal camping place. We wheeled our five wagons into a circle and built our camp fires in the center ot the ring made by the wagons. Our horses were tethered on the outside...

"Won't Kick Another.

"It happened early in the. even- ing. A number of persons were .standing about and among them a 'tainanky fellow. You wouldn't ihave taken him for a fighter. A flitlle kitten came out Of a hallway und trotted down the sidewalk. Just then some rounders came down the street. There were three -of them and all looked as though Tthe could put up a good scrap. One of the big fellows saw the kit- ten and kicked it. 'Tsaw the tall lanky fellow :move out to where the men were. before I caught on to what Was the imatter he grabbed the fellow Tvho had kicked the kitten by the col- lar of his coat and squaring him round with a jerk said: 'What did you mean by kicking that kitten?

'I RANDOM THOUGHTS. We all remember the storv of -the man who carried his boy to the newspaper office and asked the editor to make a newspaper- man out of him because he. wasn't fit for anything else on earth. The humor of the situation while pain- fully apparent to every newspaper man of experience was plainly not seen by the fond parent who had an idea now quite common xmeng the masses that just any sort of a fellow can run a news- paper but it takes all sorts of- a fellow to run one continuously for amy great length of time. There are more newspaper; fail- ures than any other kind but the mercantile agencies have but little to say about them most of them being so small in the commercial world that their creditors except the local people are very few. There is hardly a town that can not point to at least one newspaper tombstone for every 'ear of its ex- istence and in the larger places newspapers come and go with al- most alarming frequency and in very many cases the world is none...

Newspaper Centers. On account of rush of advertis- ing the Comanche Chief came out last week just twice its usual size. It is a 9-column four-page paper and always a credit to its town but last week was doubly so. Co- manche is a good town one of the best in this section but last week's Chief would create the impression that it is one of the best in the state making the excellent show- ing that it does for the business of the town by its size its neatness arid its generally healthy1 appear- once. We are not prepared to ad- mit without qualification that Co- .manche's business men are better shrewder or more sensible of the value of newspaper advertising than the business men of Brown- wood Dublin Stephenville and Granbur' and it is certain that Comanche has no advantage of the other towns in the matter' of sur- rounding territory. But either Co- manche's business men have been fortunate enough to escape that arch enemy of a towns prosperity viz: the newspaper starter or they have be...

A Wlldwood School. 1 saw the counterpart of a boy's school one day in the woods of Il- linois. I was sitting quietly on a log near the-creek when there came pacing down a little path an is not mere doggerel but always artistic and often powerful. It con- sists of four pages of doublG col- lims the size of the page being ten inches by eight. Occasionally it has comic wood cuts. Another old mother raccoon with five young i curious freak of journalism is a one. 1 ne iitue u-iiows were aootit as large as half-grown cats and were as full of fun as that mythical basket of monkeys we read about. If ever there was a hard-worked teacher it was that mother 'coon. She tried to teach the little imps how to catch crawfish and how to eat them. "When the old lady (she was a very ladylike old 'coon) got the little fellows in a line at the water's edge she sedately walked .to a rock and gravely reached down into a hole and brought out a craw- fish.
