Immediately interior of the Sindy Ligniticvea, radically different, lies the Black Prairie, the richeat and lar* ge at continuous body of agricultural land in Texas, and hence the mott im- portant from a cultural aa well as scientific aspect. It extends in an un- broken body across the ttate from In- dian territory to Mexico. The narrow- est portion of its area is about twenty miles in width west of Austin where the Colorado transects it From thai point, however, it widens in both direc- tions until its broadest margins—over one hundred miles in wid'h—rest upen the Red and Rio Giande respectively The topography of the area was wen defined by Dr. Ferdinand Roemer, some forty years ago, as the "Sj.nH- wellige hiigle land," or gently undulat- ing region. When viewed from a dis- tance it is apparently level, but upon closer inspection it i...

There is a * "New South" but it is a "New South" that haa been built by the brain and brawn of the children of the South helped and aasiated by the capital of the North. That ia what will unite thia people, and the commercial enter- prises that we are now engaged in will bring us together in our commercial relations and teach them that their in- terest ia here and that our intereata are identified with theirs. If the two sec- tions of the country could but know each other better than they do it would be impossible for small politi- flanp to forever hang out the "bloody shirt;" and I think we are now enter- ing upon auch an era, and that from now on in the history of our congres- sional legislation we will not hear ao much of the "aolid South" and the "aolid North" as of a united people in Am great country.—Hon.

Interviewed by a News reporter he said: "The proceedings throughout were character- ised with harmony and unity of pur- pose and the demands made at St. Louis last December were unanimous- ly reindorsed. They include the sub- treasury system and the regulation of money, lands and transportation. The entire convention considered the sub- treasury system to be the key to the solution of the problem of the perma- nent prosperity of agriculture.

Jr. The farmers have alwayi bee* the M foremost representatives of conservat- ism. They have overwhelmed the voice of the restless dreaming city again and again. On this rural content or a stupidity, men who believe in the divinity of that which is, have long reckoned with ceruinly. At last the farmer has broken the •pell that has bound him. He haa mtohed the traditions of centuries. He has broken the dash board, kicked out of the shafts and is tunning away. The men who have driven him with tight rein from their traditional seats, are being hurlad into the ditch and ground beneath the wheels. It has been so sudden, they hardly know what has struck them. Some say it is a cyclone, and will soon blow over. They think it is too severe to last. Old mm* tradition rubs his hands, for* ces a smile through his chattering teeth, says he kaews k is a cold day now, but then ...

While every demand made by the Alliance is founded upon ultimate truth, the necessity and correctness of the one asking for an increase of currency among the people can be at once dem- onstrated to the entire satifaction of all candid thinking individuals. The stat- istics of the past quarter of a century prove the following propositions beyond a question of doubt: 1. That the per capita volume of currency has been constantly and ma- terially lessened. 2. That bankruptcy and failures have rapidly multiplied in conse- quence. 3. That the national debt during this period has increased instead of be- ing diminished. It now remains for me to substanti- ate the above statements, which I will undertake to do as briefly and plainly as the facts and space will permit The question of the amount of curren- cy in circulation is one that nec...

The news of the closing of the North River Bank had not by that time reached the street, but the recent failures and the known difficulties of some other banks bad made the street very "skittish."

i I R t No Bald-Headed Women. : T. W. Gilruth, who write some very good things, says: Did you ever «ee a hald-headed wo- man? No, I never did. Why should I? Nor did I ever see one woman go waltzing aronnd town with a cigar be- tween her teeth, stepping into every aaloon she saw. A woman going fish ing with a bottle of original package in each hip-pocket, sitting on the damp all day and going home drunk the evening. Neither did I see her yank off her coat, spit on her hands and say she could lick any aun-of-a gun in town. No, no; God bless her, woman ain't built that way.

In a brief article published in the American Journal of Science for April, 1887, the writer included all the vast region of the northern half of Texas, lying between the eastwardly receding White Rock scarp and the westwardly receding scarp of the Staked Plains under the generic teim of the Central Denuded or Butte region, since all the included topography (except that of the Grand Prairie, which in this paper is removed frcm the classification) is the result of erosion accompanying the recession of these scarps. This class- ification, being more structural than topographic, however, can only be used temporarily for present conven- ience. The area embraces great di- versity of geologic substructure, mostly of pre-cretaceous age accompanied by a variety of topography, which may be provisionally divided ...

They kept on from year to year, raising crops of cotton and corn and grain and vegetables, and hauling them to town and selling them to the specu- lators for whatever they could get; then they would take the money and pay what they owed for coffee and su- gar, cottonieed-lard, calico, axle grease, trace chains, tobacco, etc.,...
