Prom Brown wood Texas. (continued from last week.) But the people are working on an enterprise now that. 'should they succeed will make this the finest country east of the Rocky mountains (outside of Washington county Ark. of course") Brown wood is situated in the valby the Pecan Bayou and the scheme they have undertaken! is to dam the Bayou some 15 or 20 mile3 above this point and irrigate some 40000 acres of the Pecan valley and perhaps other lands if thev can get the water ditches high enough. Three surveyors with quite a number of helpers have just been out making the necessa ry surveys for the dam site water ditches etc. and I am told that they are elated over the natural advantages they find in establish ing an irrigation plant on the Bay ou as stated. But with all natural advantages giving the farmer per haps the cheapest irrigation known and by paying cheap water rents the owners of the 40000 acres to pay the plant out and in ten years own the whole system yet I am told a fe...

V mwinin ni i RANDOM THOUGHTS. Did you ever attend a reunion of old soldiers? At Houston last "week the old veterans of the "lost cause" were assembled and many of them met for the first time since they stood side by side in the conflict of battle. There were several thou sand of these old battle-scarred soldiers together and it was a re- union in the full sense of the word. The picture is made much stronger because each one feels when meet ing an old comrade in arms that the meeting is the last one on this earth. They know there cannot be many more such gatherings and that each year their ranks will become thinner until with them the practical memory of the cause they loved well will have passed away. - It is impossible to imagine un- less yyou are one of these old men just what feelings of emotion stir the heart when two old comrades who have shared the victories and defeats of war its perils and its hardships have slept side by side wrapped perhaps in the same blanket have eaten ...

Cleaning Fine Laces. Very fine lace which has be- come quite soiled may be cleaned by washing it carefully in benzine writes Eva Marie Kennedy in the June Ladies Home Journal. The lace'should be put into a bowl and covered with the best and purest benzine that can be procured and be allowed to soak for a short time occasionally receiving a gentle j ghftking but it should never be fobbed with the hands. If neces- sary when the benidno Is poured of? it should be replaced by a fresh supply and the lace allowed to Boak again for a time. After it has become perfectly clean it should be pinned while still . quite wet on a flannel-covered board to dry. It is important that this should be done with crreat care. Plenty of small pins should be used jbr the purpose; each point must be fast- ened down securely with due re- gard to the pattern of. the lace so as to keep it even and correct. If the lace dries before the task lias been quite completed it should be moistened again with a sponge wru...

The Foibles of the Saints. Tho imperfections of good peo pie are a great comfort to us. We complain of them to be sure but how could we who dwell in houses of clay get on without them? How could we endure to live in a world of perfect people? The fact would dishearten and crush us. The sense of our own deficiencies would be unendurable. We could never hope to enter the kingdom of heaven. . But the situation is now quite otherwise. In our struggles against our own weaknesses and 'deficien- cies our haltings and slippings we see other good people of like passions with ourselves who may obtain divine favor and pass as we believe to the skies. We are ready then to believe there is hope for ourselves. The Lord who has saved so many poor specimens of humanity will not forget us. If he is able to get on for a lifetime with such people we ought to bo able to tolerate them occasionally especially when he keeps them on exhibition lor our encouragement. Stop and think what a world! this would ...

RANDOM THOUGHTS. City life presents a very attract- ive face to the person accustomed to life in small towns or in the country yet back of the seeming beauties offered by the city there is in most cases the same hard struggle the same cares and disap pointments found everywhere. Of course there are individual cases where fortune seems to smile and turn every cloud into sunshine but the chase after the gold at the foot of the rainbow is largely the same fruitless search to the dwell- er in the city walls or in the coun- try's broad acres. I have lately talked with a great many city peo- ple and they almost invariably ex- press a desire to turn to the ways of the country or country town. The few added pleasures of city life are dearly paid for with its in- creased cares and responsibilities.. There has been a growing ten- dency on the part of the country- man to move to town and the townsman is possessed with a long- ing for city life and so every man seems dissatisfied with his speci...

The Bicycle the Modern Pegasus. A bicycle is better than a .horse to ninety-nine men and 'women out of a hundred because it costs al- most nothing to keep and it is never tired. It will take one three times as far as a horse in the same number of days or weeks. In touring with a bicycle" I can make lifty miles a day as comfortably as twenty miles on foot and I can carry all the clothing I need be- sides a camera and other trap?. The exercise is as invigorating as walk- ing or more so with the great ad- vantage that you can get over un interesting tracts of country twice as fast as on foot. In fact as any bicyclist knows walking seems in- tolerably slow after the wheel; even easy-going tourists with wo- men in the party can make forty miles a day and find it play Ter- haps even greater and more im- portant than its use as a touring machine is the bicycle as an every- day help to mechanics factory hands clerks and all people who live in or near small towns. Thanks to this modern wonde...

J J. J. Rauiey spent Saturday in Zephyr in the interest of his firm. The excursionists -to Lampasas last Thursday say that our neigh- bor city is no prohibitionist. Brownwood needs a canning fac- tory in order to dispose of :the im- mense supply of vegetables and fruit on hand and in sight. Here. is a chance for capital. Hiram Thomas has been filling the position of news butcher on the Santa Fe for the past week. He is taking the place in order to give the regular man a rest1.

RANDOM THOUGHTS. trhe thing that impresses itself ist forcibly upon every man Who travels in Ts.a-just now Is the in- terest that is being manifested in local option from one end of the state to the other. A few years since local option was not given any serious consideration except in? remote country precincts and in small towns. The map . recently published by a leading daily paper shows over half the state under lo- cal option and at least half the re-" mainder agitating the question. Tliere is no wonder then that -the liquor dealers are looking at the matter seriously and are. viewing the encroachments ' on their busi- nefes with alarm. It setjms that "the fanatics'' are in thb saddle and are staying tliere witp appar- ent ease. What does ii all mean? It really looks like the present .generation has declared a war of extermination against the liquor business and that the waging so far; has been surprisingly success- ful. 1 v ' - lnother thing that is very ap- parent is that ever...
