StrucKby a Falling Rock.; Ballinger July 8. A sad occur ence took place about twelve miles out of town last night which has left a gloom over the entire county. Yesterday -Messrs. Bob Dunlap and Marston Cotton with some other gentlemen went down the river to some high bluffs for the purpose of blasting out some bees and honey. After the blast went off they were standing around waiting to take the honey when suddenly and without warning a large mass of rock weigh- ing about ten tons crashed down upon the crowd instantly killing Marston Cotton and Bob Dunlap. They were mashed into pulp; and had to be dug out from under the rock by a large crowd of men ho went from town for that purpose. Both were prominent and highly highly respected citizens and were buried here to-day. Mr. Dunlap was to have been married on August 1st and was buried in his intended wedding suit. Bicycle Etiquette. Let there be a new fruit introduc- ed on the smart dinner table or a new sport popularized in society a...

RANDOM THOUGHTS. 80 many people are careless about filling engagements prompt- ly. There isn't anything that in- jures a man's reputation in a com- munity more than indifference Jn this which to some appears a very trivial matter. I know a man against whose morai character I have never heard anything said but whose word curt be relied on and the mention of a nromise from him as if it was expected that it would be carried out is sure to be a matter of jest. It is need- less to add that this man isn't re- spected in the community as- he would be if he had more' respect for his word. It is easy to drift into the habit of neglecting to fill engagements until the' habit be- comes fixed and the reputation is injured. It isn't exactly honest either to fail to carry out your promises. There are more ways of being dis- honest than stealing and doing oth- er things that are classed as crim- inal. A man was employed to do some work at a certain hour which required the attention of the em- ploy...

Another Collector. I In all places there are cranks who pick up things they do not need all sorts of bric-a-brac stamps pictures and what not and they are usually called col- lectors. -.Philadelphia has a harm- less white-haired old man who goes all over town searching for hairpins. His eyes are bright and piercing and as he walks up and down the prominent thoroughfares it is safe to say that hardly a .hair- pin escapes his keen gaze. What becomes of the large assortment he picks up nobody knows for! al- though he has been asked his. ob- ject several times he refuses to tell. The old man is well dressed and his appearance indicates that he is cared for by loving hands. Happy old man! He is satisfied with the hairpins and should not be denied his pleasure. ; You occasionally meet a (man who entertains 3'ou for a half an. hour with an account of his won- derful abilities and what hef has done and expects to do. The.Jonly impression he makes upon you is a born braggart. Again you meet ...

Prom Rochelle. To The Bulletin I have been very much interested in the ques- tion of local option in Brownwood and without wishing to disparage any man or men who may not be- lieve as I do because I know that a few (and I thank God it is very few) of the very best and most honest and sincere intentioned men of the country are antis. Yet what can be said in favor' of the whiskey trafic? The antis say they believe in giving every man his unlimited rights in private affairs; but is this a private affair. I say not; as well say let a man stand in the middle of the strreet with a pistol and fire it at random and say it was no one else's business when you know it is endangering the lives of good citizens. I believe that if we had the rec- ord of all the neglected women and children caused from the whiskey trafic to say nothing of the young men and boys ruined annually from drink it would prove to all right thinking people that the saloon was the worst of the two evils. The annual receipts...

RANDOM THOUGHTS. At this season the people of the country and country towns are fish- ing and picnicing while their city cousins who can afford it are at the fashionable summer resorts. I do not think our people spend enough time in thsir favorite recre- ations. I mean the people who live in the towns and country and have to work hard to make enough to live comfortably. City people have learned that a man can do more work in eleven months than he can in twelve months of con- tinual tabor and a summer vaca- tion is now given most of the em- ployees in the large city establish- ments.' The rich city employer is not prompted by pure generosity lo give his overworked men part of the time in summer but is actuated by the knowledge that; the new life put into the business pays for he lost time. i If it will work in the city th same rule will hold good in the bountry where parties are kept on a continuous strain. We of the (country do not live so fast nor work at such a high tension as the...

u The San Angelo View. 3rhe excursion to Brownwood Sunday and its purpose the game of base ball betwee nthe San Angelo and Brownwood boys was; an al absorbing topic on our streets Monday. Shortly before seven o'clock Sun day morning the martial strains of a march played by the San Angelo brass band echoed through. Chad bourne street.to the railroad depot and a few minutes later the special train chartered for the. occasion pulled out with about 200 passen- gers including players and musi- cians. The trip was a continual round of goodfellowship all sing- ing loud talking and joke crack- ing ceasing as if by a preconcerted agreements as the train entered within the sacred precincts of the city of Brownwood. The object of the journey the base ball game re sulted in defeat for the San Angelo team the score being 9 to -10 Brownwood winning "by 1.

RANDOM THOUGHTS. This is an ace of specialties land everv man should have a special trade or profession or even j a department of one of these in : which he is as proficient as time ' attention study and experience can l make him. It is impossible for the ordinary man to grasp every ' thing or learn all that is tb . be 4 learned even in the smallest branch of knowledge. Unquestionably the 4 most successful men arc those who most persistently stick to one thing making all other things at least 1 secondary. We have numberless well-known adages bearing on this matter and they are all good and should be remembered. Occasionally a man adopts a call- ling to which ho is pntiroly. unfitted land adheres to it through lifo mak- ing all his life a dismal failure. jThis is especially true of profes- sional men "Professional pride" tlias been the cause of. many a poor Ifellow dragging out a miserable ex- istence in a business for which he 'has no fitness where in something ?elsehe could do well...
