A copy of the first issue of the Cana- dian (Texas) Free Press has reached the Chronicle office. It is a very neat, newsy publication. The new town of Canadian,we learn from its newspaper, is the county seat of Hemphill county, and is situated on the south bank of the Canadian river at the mouth of Red Deer river. The townsite consists of 240 acres, and since July 7th town lots to the amount of $125,000 have been sold. The town is owned and backed by the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe railroad company. Hon. L. E. Finch, of Burlingame, is general manager of the Town Company, as- sisted by Mr. Frank Charlton, also of this city. There is every indication that Canadian will grow into a city of considerable importance. We hope prosperity will attend the Free Press and the town in which it has cast its lot. We X with pleasure.—Chronicle, Burlingame, Ks. ...

" • - mm ■ - m%- sfe^" '* &*>■■. : WW I f Could Carry a Cow. One of the most remarkable in- stances of physical training that I ever knew occurred in Pike county. There was a farmer who was a friend of mine near Ilollonville, who owned a very tine cow which had a most promising heifer calf. The cow died while the calf was very young, and the calf, as the saying goes, had to be raised by hand, and of course as the farmer's wife "took a hand" in its nurture and admonition, when the heifer grew to maturity "she was-a daisy." But let me go back to the subject of physical training. While the poor little orphan heifer was passing through the first stages of grief for the irreparable loss of her kind and tender mother, she would seek sympathy from every source, and early every morning when my farmer friend would rise to feed his stock the little orphan would meet him at the door as lie came out and rub up against him and hold up her little black nose to be caressed, and the farmer, ...

Dear Sir:—While there may have been many reasons why your open let- ter to me of the 2nd inst. should have been answered when it tirst appeared, nothing was further from my intention than to do so, and it was not until to- day that a contrary resolution was formed. I have no time to spare nor the taste for newspaper controversy. My official duties require my whole at- tention, and their discharge is a heavy tax upon my endurance. While such unfair, uncandid and gratuitous criti- cism as you have indulged might pro- voke some, it has disturbed me very lit- tle. When the great trusts and respon- sibilities of the new land law devolv- ed upon me I should have been appalled and discouraged but for the reilection that I had the sympathy of a vast ma- jority of the best men in Texas whose confidence in me had...

' .. - ' " • k 4HSL Patronize Home. Citizens, if you wish your town to grow and prosper there is one way in which you can materially assist, and that is to do what trading and business you have at home. Do not take your money away from home when you can possibly leave it with your own mer- chants. The greater portion of every dollar you circulate at home will re- turn to you through the regular chan- nels of trade, whereas, if you spend it in some neighboring town it is just that much money taken away from home, and takes that much longer to return; by this means you not only en- hance the value of your own property, but that of your neighbors and busi- ness men. Circulate your money at home, even if you do haHi to pay a trifle more for some things than you would in some large wholesale town. The more business the greater the town. A town without business is no town at all. If every person would re- solve to patronize home industry and not be chasing off in quest of imagi- nary chea...

1 m. "What is Free Speech. Iu the copy of the circular sent throughout tlie country by the friends of the convicted anarchists at Chicago, addressed "to tlie workingmen of the United States,"" we find the following words: No man has the hardihood to claim that any of these eight martyrs threw tlie famous bomb on May 4.1886. Why, then, were these champions of free speech condemned? Because they ex- ercised the rights guaranteed to all men by the constitution of this country. "Tlie right of free speech" is not guaranteed by the constitution of the United States. That instrument says that congress shall make 110 law ••abridging the freedom of speech or of the press." These matters were re- served to the states themselves. Yet from the very beginning of the govern- ment laws were passed by the states "abridging tlie freedom of the press," and the punishment by line and im- prisonment the publishing of all false, scandalous and malicious libels against individuals. In so doing 110 human ...

r ■jg* ,'|P MEXICO. Charges of Wholesale Poisoning of Liberals by Fanatical Priests. City of Mexico, Oct. 9.—The po- litical friends of General Gonzales are beginning to propose him as a candi- date for the presidency to succeed General Diaz, in the term commenc- ing December, next year. General Gonzales' club has been organized at Mazatlin and a newspaper at Vera Cruz is now publishing articles defend- ing General Gonzales- previous ad- ministration. Some leading politicians think this movement is not made in earnest, but simply as a feeler to as- certain the public sentiment. General Gonzales is at present governor of the state of-Guanajuato. where lie has in- troduced many improvements and made a good financial record, but there is a very strong sentiment of opposi- tion to his presidential candidacy in business circles.

(By the Poet of the Plains.) Mounting my broncho, away I go, Chasing the long horns to and fro; Drinking branch water, eating camp chuck, Drenched to the skin and cursing my luck. Night riding amid the hurricane's roar, The lightning's flash and the rain's downpour. Much expected and but little given, A cow boy's life is no dream of heaven. And when away to the town Í go, I paint it, but not the color of snow; The lisping dudes, trembling with dread, Say the color of it is a fiery red. If they fill me up with tanglefoot rot, And do all in their power to make me a sot, I'll make them think I'm a slasher and cutter Before I fall into the sidewalk gutter. They call us heathen, the church fra- ternity, And say that we never think of etern- ity. They forget that nature is a noble teacher, Wiser by far than their pigeon-coat preacher. Thev should remember our lonely life, L'ncheered by the presence of sister or wife, And condoning our sins, present and past, Pray for God's mercy upon us a...
