Iffií I \ CHRISTMAS, 1902. HEREFORD, TEXAS, DEC. 19, 1902. NEW YEAR. 1903 The Bushranger's Gift. Christmas in Australia. It is hard for us dwellers in the north to realize what Christmas weather Is in the antipodes. Hot and dusty and dispiriting, it would seem there conld be little thought of re joicing at such a season, but the fes- tival spirit was strong in the race which fashioned far-off Australia into a great country, and it will not be robbed of its traditional merrymaking. Such a merrymaking had been planned at the farm of John Wickham, near what is now the city of Victoria, but then (in 1842) a lonely sheep-herd- er's home, for in February, Milly. Wickham's daughter, was to marry Frank Goodwin, a rider on the adjoin- ing farm, though many miles away, and Frank was to spend the week with them. Naturally the girl had been looking forward impatiently to this visit of her lover. Distances in those days were immense, and the only means of travel waa the horse, so that the young ...

Milly stood there for some time, shading her eyes with her hand and peering in the direction from which she expected her lover to appear. The sound of fast-falling hoofs rapidly nearing her caused an expression of Joy to cross her face, still mingled with a little anxiety, for Frank had not given the joyful "Coo-ee!" which he always sounded at the same dis- tance, and her heart misgave her that the fast-coming rider could not be him, but a casual stranger. Rapidly the horse drew nearer, tak- ing shape in the darkness, and still no joyful hail from the rider. Alarmed, she hastily sounded the well-known call. No answer! Then with a mad rush which told of his terror, the horse —his horse—rusbeO past her and stood trembling in the yard, to which his instinct had brought him for safe- ty, and Milly saw that «the saddle was empty! Quickly calling to her father inside the house, she hastened to calm the terrified h...

So," he con- tinuad, turning to a mite of a girl kitting sedately near the blazing fire- place, intently engaged in thumbing a well-worn primer book, "thou art studious, min lilla flicka, as I told thee to be. Come hither, my little maid, and show me thy book." He took the book quickly offered him, and deftly placing in it something he secretly drew from his pocket, thrust it out of sight behind him. "Dost remember, sweetheart, that I told thee the rooster pictured on the front pfcge of thy book would bring thee something if thou wert good?" "Ja, brother Karl, and so I have been goo...

Mrs. Werthei- mer's aspira- tions for a household cen- ter of attraction was substantial- ly in the same direction. It must be ad- mitted here, however, that the desires of the two for the same object did rot emanate from the same view point; there was nothing marital in their thought, the son-and-heir idea never ocurring to either of them. A dog, a cat and a canary bird had hitherto been the objects of Mr. Wer- and a string of children too young to help rare for it. It seemed to him that the world was < okl and unfeeling, for the neighbors, instead of offering any assistance, intimated quite plain- ly that "poor people who kept on hav- ing children should be able to pro- vide for them without holding outsid- ers responsible by soliciting help." In spite of its unwelcome reception the seventh Hopkins was really the finest of the lot, a bright, healthy and attractive baby. In his extremity t...

The Past and tKe The comiuk year promises to see In the United States a more marvel «us period of commercial and indus- trial development than even that of the year 1902. The prediction may be aafely made that American trade with the East will be doubled during the next twelve morths and the United ■tates will become the dominant power of the Pacific mean. It is not beyond the bounds of possibility that within the next decade the empire of trade and commerce will pass from the Atlantic to the Pacific shores. Having in mind the vast strides taken by our country in comparatively a few recent years, what the volume of our commerce will be in another quarter of a century it would be fool Mi to predict, but it will be enormous. That the Influence Of America and the American people throughout the world will have Increased, so that they will have become not only the great com- mercial nation of the world, but the greatest in politi...

Christmas seized upon these things for the celebration of the festival not because they were green, but because of the power that held them green, that kept them alive, that preserved in them the beauty of life, notwith- standing the snow and sleet, the wind and chilling rain and the withering blast. in the gracious protection th...

When shown into the cosy quarters known as the Girls' Home, he was enraptured to think that, after hav- ing lived on these plains as a cow- boy, cowman and railroad man, there should be reared on the for- mer cattle grazing grounds such a beautiful and magnificently furnish- ed building for the purpose of edu- cation. He could hardly realize that such a good thing for this coun- try was true and warmly compli- mented the progressive citizens who were responsible for it, and paid the town of Hereford a further compli- ment by saying that it was the best built town on the line of the Pecos Valley railroad. Judge Gough then stated that about $3000 of the in- vestments had been paid in (as the solicitors had not had lime to collect their subscriptions) out of the money which had been investe...
