:V? THE WEEKLY BANNER. BY RANKIN & LEVIN. TIICBSIUT, - APRIL IS, 188S. The ,St Louis Republican is reasonably certain that, the right old man Bender, the Kansas murderer has been caught in St. Louis. It devotes about three columns to an ac count of his capture and has found a man to identify Bender who knew him in 1871. The Brazoria Independent siys that CoL Mansfield will not notice it It proposes to get even with the colonel say ing that by-the time we get a new engineer appointed for this section he will wish he had no ticed the Brazos, any how." Colonel Mansfield will no doubt feci very-bad when he reads the Independent. Replying to the remark of the Houston Age that, the signs of the times point to the re-election of Governor Roberts, the Bastrop Advertiser says there frequently occurs a slip be tween the cup and lip, and it prayerfully1 remarks!

- V k r Weekly Banner. Cross-Corn. In the older states a number of the wisest agriculturalists sonic years ago planted corn in rich lands where cotton had beea previously planted and cultivated the two crops as one. The object of thus blending the two crops in one had some ad vantages which re worthy of the highest consideration, and would perhaps meet some of the exigencies of some seasons as the one just passed. At any rate Ave would like to see the experiment tried in the black lands of Texas. It is well known that cotton lands receive more care and arc better culti vated than lands worked in corn. No matter how qreat the necessity may be for the use of grain, few larmers are capable of deserting the cotton lands to work out a corn crop. But plant them both together, and each must be worked at once and the same time. In the strongest of the bottom lands in the states to which we have re ferred, the cross-corn was plan ted in rows of fifteen to twenty Teet apart in order that. the...
