So badly was he, after his arduous rounds of the Pacific coast and his strenuous days in Virginia City, New. with Mark Twain and Hill Nye, that his life was despaired of.

Er* of CIiri$tianity. i > Falconry, the art of training fal-j ccns and hawks to the chase, has been traced back to a period before the Christian era. It was practiced in the East and also in Europe long before its introduction into England. The English kings used to amuse themselves with t tliis sport, which was for a long time the leading amusement, such as base- ball is in America today. Fr.lconer.s use two kinds of birds— the lonj-.vinged. dar::-eyed falcons ami the short-winded, yellow-eyed hawks. The former take their prey by rising above it in the air and swooping at it from a considerable !u-ig!u r. strik- ing '.t to the ground; the latter pur- sue in a straight line, and overtaking the object of the chase by superior speed, clutch it and bring it down.

Lees Life fit the judge pretty well and ths-t he was welcome to it. The i Judge thanked Mr. Barclay for relieving him of that embarrass- ment and then said that it was necessary for him to disclose another one. The trip to Pow- hatan County, where Gen. Lee lived was an expensive one and neither he nor the college had any money. This puzzled the board for a few moments, until one of the trustees, Col. Mc- Laughlin, "who was ever alive to the interests of the college, and who knew everything that went on in the town," bethought him that there was a lady living near Lexington who had just sold her tobacco crop and he felt sure the college could borrow some money from her. Which it seems, was done, and Judge Brokenbrough, with his borrow- ed money, borrowed suit of clothes and a borrowed horse, rode dow...

PAGE FOUR THE MINEOLA MONITOR WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 2, 1922. THE MINEOLA MONITOR H. J. ADAIR, Editor and Pub- lisher. Entered at post office, Mineola, Texas, as second class matter. MINEOLA MUST KEEP PACE WITH THE TRANSFOR- MATION OF EAST TEXAS. There is probably no section of Texas coming to the front as is East Texas. This trans- formation, if you will call it that, is brought about mainly by two reasons, first the build- nig of good roads, second the diversification methods being employed by the farmers throughout this and other sec- tions of the Eastern portion of the State. A few years ago there were times when it was practically impossible to go by automobile to Quitman, the Wood County capitol. Going to Winnsboro, Alba. Hawkins and other places was almost an impossi- bility. Good roads now make it posible to reach Quitman in twenty minutes time, any time of the year. Likewise other towns may be reached 011 simi- lar schedules. In a few more months Tyler, the town which calls itse...
