Advice to Prospectiye Bridegrooms.
K. Lamity's Harpoon.
When a good, strong, honest,
energetic young man in Texas
decides to marry, and persuades
some sweet young girl to have
him, it's his own fault if he is
not well fixed and in easy cir
cumstances inside of ten years.
Of course he must work-be
economical-live within his in
come and not spend every cent
he can lay his hands on. I'll
guarantee the girl will do her
It is almost impossible for a
man to get the worst of the
trade in a matrimonial bargain.
If he will be half as courteous
and loving and attentive to
Maria Jane after he marries as
he was trying to persuade her to
marry him the old girl will tear
her kimona into doll rags to
please him and they will be as
happy as two kittens in a wool
The boy who is reared in the
country has all the advantage
of the town raised lad when it
comes to making a living. He
knows how to do things worth
doing. He may not know how
to tie his cravat in the latest
style or play billiards, but he
can haul wood, make fires, build
fences, fatten *hogs and raise
more corn, hay, fodder and cot
ton than he needs and turn the
surplus into good solid cash.
When winter comes on he will
have a smokehouse full of good
old country bacon, more lard
than he needs, a crib full of corn
and plenty of fat horses and
cows-and, incidentally, Maria
Jane will have a backyard full
of fat yellowlegged chickens
that are -just dying to get in a
If he knows his business well,
he will have a big, fat beef steer
dressed and salted away, and
when meal time comes he don't
have to chase to the market and
pay 75 cents for 20 cents worth
of bullneck steak that's so tough
you can rope a horse with the
gravy. That's what I call living.
The man who owns a good
farm in Texas to-day is a prince
-but inside of the next twenty
years he will have to pay four
times the price which he pays
to-day. For that reason I warn
the young men to get a move on
themselves now. If you haven't
got the money, get it on credit
and work it out.
This country is filling up with
people. From the frozen north
and east they are comning in by
the train load and are buying up
the rich lands all over the state.
Thousands of Germans,Swedes,
Danes and other nationalities
are trooping in and are becom
ing citizens. Most of them are
good cieizens, too-honest, in
dustrious, frugal and intelligent
men. They come from old and
overcrowded countries where a
poor man can never hope to be
rich or even accumulate a decent
living, and they appreciate the
conditions in this new country.
Just watch them grow rich and
buy land. They never sell any
-but as soon as they get a few
dollars ahead they add to their
landed property. It only takes
a few years for one of those
energetic, hard-working Ger
man or Swede farmers to get
I don't believe the average
