k V 11; VOL. 2. THURBER, TEXAS, SATURDAY, JANUARY 26, 18!).' NO. 2. FLASHES OF THOUGHT. Let us lay to heart the comfort In this sweet reflection found : That however dense our darkness, Somewhere still the world around Dews are glistening, flowers uplifting. Wild birds warbling, as reborn, Lakes and streams and woods and mountains, Melting in the kiss of morn. Ne'er was night, however dismal, But withdrew its wings of gloom; Ne'er was sorrow, but a day-star, Hinted of the morrow's bloom; Ne'er was woe, but in its bosom Was the seed of hope impearled; There is still a sunrise somewhere, Speeding, speeding round the world. FLASHES OF FUN. The grip is slick, And bad and bold; It's sly and quick— And grabs right hold; Just now it's thick As hops, we're told. At fall of night, And evening's bell, When stars are bright O'er hill and dell, • We feel quite right And all is well. But ere the morn, The weather takes A nasty turn; The victim quakes With fever's burn, And cold chill shakes. We ...

Oh, if he could only hypnotize the President of the United States to iollow his example it would be a blessing to this country, but if that Democrat from Pennsylvania is correct in what he says about Cleveland (and we do not doubt it) there is no hope for us. We advise every devoted follower of Grover Cleveland's theories to read what SÜdell, a Democratic Congressman of Pennsylvania, thinks is the "make-up" of the ex-Buffalo Sheriff: How much a dunce that has been sent to roam, Excells a dunce that has been kept at home. —[Cowper. That last $50,000.000 in gold Carlisle bought is sliding out of the Treasury like dew before the morning sun. A nation is just the same as an individual. When a man stops his income and keeps up his expenses, the end will come. When a nation places at the head of the Treasury a man that cannot handle his own finances, trouble must follow. Carlisle's struggles would be laughable if they were not so serious. Columbia College has re...

THE following able communication was written to the Post- Dispatch by Mr. L. M. Rumsey, the head of the Rumsey Manufacturing company, St. Louis, and sent to us by Mr. Hart- nett of that firm. It is certainly encouraging when a man of his calibre, a man who has knowledge gained by experience, speaks to us on this vital question. It is more than likely that among all the members of the House and Senate there is not one who has had a tithe of the actual experience that Mr. Rumsey has had. It is good to have this kind of a man speak out. We know of many men who think as Mr. Rumsey does on this ques- tion, but are afraid to speak out bo...

The total amount of manu- factured products of the Northern states in 1890 was $9,130,- 380,525—[American Economist. I his is all true, but you just wait and see what another decade is bound to bring forth; you will see some, at least, of the large cotton mills of the East transferred to the South; you will see our now infant industries grow as "Topsy growed;" you will see our iron interests loom up; you will see our coal fields developed; you will see south of Mason and Dixon's line a strong protective ele- ment, that will wipe out the Democratic party unless it changes its free trade views.

It determines a change in the base of operations, and one that must put in jeopardy some of the most famous cotton manufacturing towns in New England, as Salem once lost its maritime ascendancy. The South and Southern rail- ways will be vast gainers in the end by this evolution. Towns in New England that got their start from the excellence of their water power have lost their advantages in the general and economical substitution of steam power for water power.— [Watson & Gibson. A PROTECTION LESSON. ELI PERKINS tells how "Irish Dan" Sandy Ross and "Dutch Hans" silenced the Free-Traders: It was a hard time that Mr. Thomas G. Shearman, the Free- Trader, had trying to convince the poor, idle glove makers of Gloversville that the Wilson bill is a blessing. The boys have had an object iesson.

Vi 2 THE TEXAS MINER. THE GOLD SIDE. HENRY CLEWS gives us Wall street monometal views. What is the interest of Wall street is not the interest of the owners of land and the producers of the country. We print his ietters to give our readers the gold side of the question: The Treasury report on foreign commerce for the calendar year 1894 furnished matter for some transient pessimistic com- ment. The record shows the effect of the foreign distrust excited by our silver legislation of 1890 more strikingly than the returns of any of the three preceding years during which the Sherman Act had been in operation. For the two fiscal years 1890-1 and 1891-2 combined, the foreign commercial movement, including that of gold and silver, showed an excess of exports over imports amounting to $330,000,000, or an average per year of $165,- 000,000. Taking the amount needed for payments of interest and dividends at the usually estimated sum of $100,000,000 per year, it follows that the balance of $65....

8 THE TEXAS MINER. OUR NEW YORK LETTER. Editor Texas Miner: New York, January 19, 1895. íí'THE MINER" comes to us weekly—fresh, breezy and vig- 1 orous, like a sunbeam in a shady place, not that ev- erything in this great human heart-beat is sombre but a man who appreciates that— "It is not birth, or rank, or state; It's the 'git-up-and-git' that makes men great," sometimes gets tired of conventionalities and appreciates the opportunity to place his ear against the heartbeats of a conti- nent. Last night I attended a dinner—the dinner of the first panel of the sheriff's jury. This requires an explanation of what the sheriffs jury is. Ostensibly it's a jury of picked men who decide upon the sanity of exceptional citizens, but in reality it is the "City of Refuge" for privileged citizens who do not wish to do other jury duty. The panels are very large; they do sit upon cases, but the quorum is small and elastic, and you can attend or pay a fine. Most of the members prefer to pay fines...
