Some davs since a citizen of Brownwood canvassed the town taking the views of many of our citizens on the effect of local op tion on the business and morals of the town. For some unknown reason the views of the leading antis have been published in sev- eral prominent state papers; while the opinions of those who disa- greed with them have been lost sight of. The published opinions of men who state that local option has ruined the town that it has hurt business is injuring our yOung men and retarding the growth of the town is doing more to injure Brownwood than the drouth the financial panic Hnd all other things combined.

College Orators In the West. For twenty-five years the ruling passion of the Western college stu- dent has been the passion for ora- tory. So far as we are aware no one has ever attempted a general estimate of the causes or the re- sults of this unexampled devo.tion on the part of at least a hundred' student communities through the entire period since the war to .the art ot public address. But. to deny the fact itself would be to confess total ignorance of all the springs and motives of the life that has vantages. From "College Oratory in the West" in Review of Re- views for June."

RANDOM THOUGHTS. There is an old story which was told me when but a bov of a little girl who was found crying bitterly one morning and when asked the reason for her tears replied that she was crying because she would have to dress herself io5 times every year as long as she lived arid while she didn't much mind dressing the thought of so much of it made her cry. This child's trouble is found everywhere and adds a great deal to the unhappi- ..ness of the world. When we stop to contemplate the labor in store for us it is appalling but a merci- ful Providence gives daily strength for daily needs and makes the heavy load light. If wd try to carry the cares of "a whole life time at; one time and to crowd all its duties and responsibilities into a single day we will find ;it more than ordinary strength dan bear but let it distribute itself 'as it will and the burden reduces itseit to a minimum. .

v. 7 Farmers vs. Citizens Some farmers have the mistak- en idea that everj' business man or manufacturer is constantly pill ing up the profits at from 10 to 40 percent of the capital invested. While it is true that some business men succeed and accumulate large wealth it is nevertheless a fact that less than one business man in 20 is a success. It is the 20th man who is seen by everyone the other 19 are always in sight but never in view. In farming this order may not be quite reversed but such is nearer the fact than many are willing to grant and strange as it may seem it is the man who has made a fail- ure in farming whom the farmers will see and in in nine times out of ten he is not the brightest man in the community either. It is not just nor fair for a farmer to. be a pessimist in regard to his own call ing and an optimist in. regard to every other calling or profession in life. Exchange. Hints on Cheerfulness.!

J- V Coldthwalte News. The town has had many strang ers to entertain this week most of them being representatives of some foreign bridg'e company. If com- petition is the life of trade a bridge ought to be bought now at a very reasonable price. Sam Brin of Brownwood was here Monday looking after the . business- of the Red Store.

RANDOM THOUGHTS. I overheard a conversation to- day between some drummers that while not a surprise to me would have been a revelation to those people who imagine that a drum- mer is necessarily a man of bad habits and evil thoughts. They were discussing the merits and faults of hotels when a certairuvas to murder him. The. two men house was mentioned and four out of the five men engaged in the con- versation s?.id they quit the hotel because of the profanity and ob- scene anecdotes of the landlord. The average drummer has heard so much of anecdote that he is "easily disgusted with vulgar jokes such as some people delight in telling and the hotel man can drive away patronage by insisting on enter- taining his guests with these ques- tionable stories. The drummers constitute three-fourths of the trav- ellers and as a rule they are a refined gentlemanly class of men. The loud-mouthed brazen-faced dirt-tongued drummer has lost prestige and cannot now secure a place with the best firms....
