New atiyom VOL X. CANYON CITY, RANDALL CO., TEXAS, FRIDAY. OCTOBER 26. 1906. NO. 31 c C ty Brain Leaks. The Commoner. A bird on the hat costs a plenty. Perfect faith means perfect trust. Only the foolish measure life by length of years. The man who loves his work seldom wants for a job. The wise man will not put his trust in the labels on the can. The man who boasts of his par tisanship exposes his narrowness. The easist man to deceive is the man who thinks he knows it all. The father who is not a hero to his children should hasten to reform. Big successes are never won by taking little troubles home with you. Some people who imagine them selves to be critics are merely faultfinders. People who get to heaven will first have to start tributary estab lishments down here. The average man does not have to go far from home to rind a place to begin reform work. Good citizenship finds better ex pression at the ballot box than in the street corner discussion. The public always suffers when ...

CANYON CITY NEWS. POPULAR NOTION EXPLODED ' Idea That Pastors' Sons Usually Go Ruinous Bout Quickest 13 Scoffed At. It has long been a popular no tion that clergyman's sons are less likely to achieve distinction In life than the children of laymen, says the Detroit News. This is prob ably due to the fact that when a clergyman's son goes to the dogs in a fashion that attracts public notice his father's calling is al ways lugged into the story, but when the son of a lawyer or of a member of any other profession disgraces himself in a. similar war no account is taken of the rela tionship. Ilishop Welldon has proved the popular notion to be a fallacy. In an article which he has jnst published in the Fort-j nightly Review, in London, ho shows that against the 510 and 8,770 children of lawyers and doc tors, respectively, who have won eminence in English history, 1,250 sons of the parsonage have at tained fame. The list includes among philosophers Cudworth,J Ilartley, Hobbes, Reid, Dugald ...

CANYON CITY NEWS QUEEN'S GIFT DID NO GOOD; RAISING OF PHEASANTS. WHAT TUSKEGEE IS DOING. Child's Reward for Industry Appro priated by Her Heartless Relatives. There are many stories told of the queen of Italy's act of kind ness to her ioor subjects. The following, however, shows that even the pod intentions of queens are not always fulfilled. Her ma jesty recently noticed a pleasant faced little girl and the queen spoke to her. There was a shoit conversation, and the queen asked the child what she could do in the way of needlework. "I can knit stockings, siguora." replied the girl. "lo you know who I am?" continued the queen. "Yes, signora ; you are the queen." Well, then, make me a pair of stocking and send them to the palace." A few days afterward the arti cles arrived and the queen, in re turn for the pift. sent the child a beautiful pair of silk stockings, one filled with sweets, the other containing money. Xext day the queen received a letter from hev little friend, as follows:...

There are now some ten train loads of cattle awaiting ship ment here. They are being held all about town, many of them on short grass, at great expense by the shippers, And aside from this expense, to say nothing of the worry attendant on delay and uncertainty combined, the stock are shrinking in market value every day. A "shortage of cars" is the excuse rendered by the railroads. This the shippers, from their conversation are not inclined to believe and in their desperation they are appealing not only to the State Commission, but to the National authorities at Wash ington. The situation is indeed a hard proposition from the shippers standpoint but, if the public car riersthe railroads are, as they say, doing all they can in the premises The News fails to see wherein these appeals to the gov ernment, either State or Nation al will do any good.

CANYON CITY NEWS. NOVEMBER 2. 1906. The Hell-Bound Train. Tom Gray lay down on the bar room floor, Having drank so much he could drink no more. So he fell asleep with a troubled brain, And dreamed that he rode on a hell-bound train. The engine with blood was red and damp, And brilliantly lit with a brim stone lamp; For fuel an imp was shoveling bones, While the furnace rang with a thousand groans. The boiler was tilled with lager beer, And the devil himself was the engineer. The passengers made such a motley crew Church members, atheist, gen tile and Jew; Rich men in broadcloth, and beggars in rags; Handsome young ladies and withered old hags; Yellow and black men, red brown and white All chained together! What terrible sight! The train dashed on at an awfu pace, And a hot wind scorched the hands and face, Wilder and wilder the country grew, And faster and faster the engine flew. Louder and louder the thunder crashed, And briirhter and brighter the lightning flashed. Hotter and hott...

It is no little thing or easy matter to put the incorporation harness on a people unused to it and to hold it there. If put on all at once they generally, as did Hereford, SanAngelo and several other good Texas towns, buck out of it. To succeed you must lay on one strap at a time and be right easy about that.

Its enemies, the Corporations, Have Organized and are trying to Indi rectly buy up the Country Newspapers. The rapid spread of the mu nicipal ownership idea in this country, so common and success ful in Europe, has thoroughly alarmed some corporations and they are now organising for the battle of 100H. One of the neatly arranged plans of these cormorant private corporations is to reach the com mon people through the country press, and to do this they have seemingly hit upon, to them no doubt, the happy idea of appeal ing to and offering to supply, free of all cost, one of the most urgent needs of the average country newspaper. Their.prop osition is to furnish "free of all charges" an already set-up page after page "on the conservative side of this question." The let ter addressed to the Canyon City News read as follows.
