CALLOWAY, UrsuIm COUNTY TEXAs,
June 12th, 1881.,
MR. EDITOR: On the 11th of May last, I
proceeded, accompanied by my friend Mr.
Thomas Hunt. to Hawkins in Wood county,
and there taking the Texas and Pacific train,
commenced our contemplated tour of several
hundred miles in a Northwesterly direction
through Texas. The sky had assumed a deep
azure blue; the while fleecy clouds overhead
moved in slow dignified and majestic gran
deur across the concave vaults oflthe universe;
while the bright sunshnio and soft balmy air
had a marked tendency to exhiliarate our
spirits and prepare us for the full enjoyment
of our extended travel.
As soon as we entered the neatly an'] ele.
gantly furnished cars, we discovered all the
conveniences and comforts our hearts could
desire, and at Fort Worth, we were indeed
truly rejoiced to recognize our old esteemed
friend Mr. Neal.'the agreeable and urbane
gentleman, officiating as our passenger train
conductor, of whom every one that has ever
travelled on this road speaks in the highest
laudation, by reason of his obliging and win
ning ways, together with his social and genial
We bad scarcely comfortably seated our
selves in the car when the bell rang, and
away we appeared to fly, as if on wings of
the wind, fiercely and ruthlessly dragged
along by the irresistible power of the iron
horse. In a very brief time we reached
Mineola, in Wood county, where the Inter
national lhoad crosses in its progress South.
This village is quite a thriving place. It has
a bank; several exteneive business houses,
some of which are constructed of brick,
besides a few tasteful and charming private
residences most. delightful to view, while its
churches, schools and mechanic shops, an
honor to the place, must not be omitted, as
we conceive them to be in every town or set
tlement., the exponents of morality, intelli
gence and industry. The land in this county
is of a light gray soil and very productive;
the farmera raisiug fair crops of cotton and
cereal products in a seasonable year. Black
lack, oak and hickory constitute the chief
timber-there is an ample supply of good
wholesome water for stock and all other ne.
After our dep?.rture from Mineola as we
progressed on our route we caine to Wills
Point in Van Zant County, then to Elmo on
the edge of the prairie in Kaufman County.
The vicinity of these two little villages are
well cultivated, and the land is average, yet
there is rat her a deficiency of pure water ini
comparison with Wood county. In leaving
Elmo, we next approached Terrel in Kauf
man county, locr ted in the bald prnirie on a
high and commanding eminence. To pros
pect this town at some distance its appear,
auce is indeed interesting and lovely. Its
semblance is superb and magnificent. Thiu
is a town of coinsiderable size, where a larg<
amount of business is daily tra-asacted. I
has a bank, a number of stores, livery sta
bles, mechanic shops, schools, churches ani
'--We now drew near Dallas In Dallas county
situated on the East bank of the Triniwa
river. This is a large Texas city, while wi
esteem it at thisa period withI the advantagei
it possesses only in a condition of embryo t<
what it is destined to become in the future
A t no dlistant day it will be one of the most
prominent controlling inland centres, ant
even at thisa time it is a place of great im
portance, exerting a powerful influence boi
politically and commercially throughout the
entire Btate. It is encircled on every sidi
with a rich farming country; chiefly prairi4
with now and thien small skirts of timber
and abundantly supplied with everlasting
springs of pure water. Three railroads dalil
pass to and fro through ihis city.
A fter retiring from Dallas, we moved for
ward thirty two miles West and reached Fort
Worth in Tarrant county. This is a larg<
town with vast Improvements going on; thert
are several stores on an extensive scale witl
large amounts of capital involved..-many
finished brick buildings, and Indeed every.
thing that presented itself to our vision In.
dicated uncommon prosperity mingled witi
wealth and the high standard of morality and
intelligence of its inhabitants. The water li
pure and abundant-the soil is unusually
fertile-the timber consists of mesquite, post
oak and live oak. Two railroads every day
pass and repass through Fort Worth, aniu a
third is almost completed
The next town we arrived at was Weather.
ford In Parker county. This is a rough
broken country with exceedingly rich valleys
of land. Cotton, corn, oats, wheat and millet
yield an abundant return. The water is
white limestone-the timber is scat tering but
similar to those counties already mentioned.
This town, like all other towns on the rail
road, displarys a decIded aspect of progressive
improvement. We passed through Palo Pinto
county, which seemed a mountainous county
with few redeeming traits--wheresoever, what
side you glanced with your eyes, an infinite
number of hills an barren rocks presented
thamselves, as if ~y had been made and
planted by (lie hands of man to render the
scene odious. We could occasionally discover
small isolated groves of cedar, and scattering
trees of mesquite, post oak and live oak.-..
There are many mountain streams of cold
water filled with various kinds of fish.
As we proceeded on our course we reaohed
Eastland City In Eastland County, which in
its external appearance might pass for the 81..
berice of Texas. It Indeed looked like a God
forsaken place. The town is new and just
emanating irto existence, and the county In
our estimation in point of soil was the poor
est of any we had passed since we began trav
eling; nearly one half of the county is cover
ed with trees, such as mesquite, postoak and
live oak of a very small and inferlot charac
We remained a abort time at Breman, In
Callahan Count y. It has a few mountains and
large fertile bottoms or iM. Famn a
just commenced, and is in its Infancy, yet, the
*oil gives the strongest evidence, even in this
partial condition of cultivation of adequately
compensating the farmer for his labor. This
county as far as relates to the raising of sheep
and horses, is decidedly equal to any and
greatly superior to many we saw in Western
Texas. Baird Is another town in this county
with great prospects in future, and with a
rich body of land to support it. The railroad
shops and round house are to be erected in
this town which will give it an additional im
pet us toward its advancement.
Still contiuuing to dash forward with light.
ning velocity on the train, in a Westerly di
rection, we approached Abilene in Taylor
County. This town struck us with more am
azement than any we had previously visited.
The town lots were sold on the 15th day of
March last, and now it contains seventy two
business houses, comprising get eral stocks of
merchandise, dry goods, groceries, canned
meats, fruits, oysters, &c. One wholesale es
tablishment drives an extended business
which would surprise a merchant of the old
States. This house is operating on a weighty
capital with unlimited credit.
At Abilene we terminated our journey on
the railroad and settled ourselves for a season
at the Abilene hotel. In the far west it is not
common to find the conveniences and comforts
that are in the older States, yet, in this hotel
we were agreeably disappointed. There was
not one in our extended route that surpassed
it in respeet, to lodging and table comforts,
the apartments were well ventilated and the
beds clean-the rooms neatly and tastefully
furnished, while the landlord and landlady,
Mr. and Mrs. McLarty, were so kind and so
ciable and did everything in their power to
make our stay pleasant, that on withdrawing
from them, and bidding them farewell, a feel
ing of unfeigned regret reigned over our
minds. This is a hotel we would candidly
and truthfully recommend all travelers to vis
it who may pass through this section of coun
try. The charges were very moderate.
We left Abilene on the stage and progress
ed in the direction of Buffalo Cap, and travel
ed through one of the richest counties in Tex
as- We came to the village about sun-set and
lodged with Mr. Lem. Baker, the proprietor
of the hotel. Mr. Baker is a whole souled
fellow, accommodating, good natured and jo
vial as anyone could desire, he prides himself
on leaving nothing undone to make his guests
at. home and cotnfortable, while his house is
equal to any we found on our travels. At. this
village we hired a hack and two with a driver
and drove all over the county in various di
rect ions. The water was found pure and cold.
Theii external appearaince of tho country is
beautiful,-thle prairie dogs numerous-i le
county is new-we could not say how it, would
llaving explored arnd seen all we desired we
retraced our steps toward Abilenie preparatory
to our journey homeward. All around this
village for miles are lunge piles of butfailo
bones, for which the mercha nits pny eight
dollars per ton delivered at the railroad, then
they send them by rail to New York where
they are ground and snld as bone manure --
Some of the meni we saw collectinug these hones
told us t hey made four dollars per day. In all
our travels the best crops we sawv were ini Tar
rant and .Johnson Counties.
W e juimped into the rail roatd car, set our
faces for home, andi in one day and one half,
we arrivedl at. Gilmer, ten muiles~ distanut from
our farms, just. as Dr. Rlayland's hotel bell
was ringing to announce dinner. . .
P. K. IrLItAMS.
Ma. EnIToR: In the last issue of your pa
per "D" informed your readers that lie and
myself expected to open a graded school at
P'ickens Court IHouse the first of September.
He also gave the theory of the graded school.
The reason we adopt the name graded in
preference to high school, is, that we intend
to make the arrangement of the entire school
into classes or grades one of the leading fea-.
tures of our school. This arrangement of
classes will enable us to teach more thorough.
ly than is generally done in -our common
schools. For we will have order and system
throughout, and more time to detvote to our
class in explaining, and supplementing text
books with teachers. The end we have in view
is thorough instruction. We, therefore, want
to adopt the rweans which will enable us to
reach that. end. The classification of the
whole school int~o grades we think will be of
great advantage to us. There may be any
number of grades, beginning with infant and
juvenile classes, and advancing to the higher
grades. In each grade there are as many
studies as a child of ordinary mind can mas
ter in a given length of time. On the en
trance of each pupil into the school, lie is ex
amined and placed in that grade which he is
prepared to enter, and kept there, till thor
oughuly prepared to enter the next higher.
In this school, our object will be to give
both practical and liberal education. For
the benefit of those pupils who may desire to
fit themselves for any special business, we
will have our grades so arranged as to allow
them to select whatever studiefr they may de
sire to prosecute. Those who desire to pre
pare for college will be drilled in those stud
ies which will enaba~ tigem to enter whatever
collegiate class they may desire to prepare
for. It will then be our'aim to Ait etudents
for practical business life, or give them a good
start towafds obtaining a classical education.
Realsing the necessity of exercise to stu
dents we propose to have a military depart
ment connected w ith our school. All young
men and boys of .aficIent age and size will
be permitted to join a military company. The
object of the military drill will be to assist,
students In formIng habits of order, punctu
ality, Airmness, accuracy and manly bearing
This we believe to he a good feature of our
schools; for physical strer~gth is just as es
sential as mental cultivation.
WVe have now set forth the plan on which
we propose to conduct the Pickens Oraded
8olo0il. W~e trust that the citt, of the
County generally will aesit s In putting
into eaddesful dperaifo* this great enter.

Our Washington Letter.
WASnINGTON, J uno 27,1881.
Pretty inuch all the excitement we have in
Washington now has Its central focus in "Room
59" of the Post Office Department. It is in
this room that the case against the "star route"
thieves Is being made up, and the daily secret
sessions of the attorneys, detectives and ag.
ents are the object of no small degree of inter..
est. Piled upon a table in one part of the
room are the papers and documents from
which a portion of the evidence has been gath
ered, and around another table sit Attorney,
General MeVeagh, special agents Gibson and
Woodward, and Col. W. A. Cook, the celebra..
ted criminal lawyer engaged to assist in the
prosecution. It is amusing to read in the
"star route" organs the fierce denunciations
of these secret sessions and of the agents em
ployed in working up the Government case.
One of them, owned by Brady and his friends
says the proceedings of "notorious detectives
and spies " will some day "cause the blush of
shame to mantle the cheeks of American cit
izens." It denounces the Administration for
establishing a "star chamber" in one of the
Departments. What the Brady crowd would
like is to have the doors all left open so thal
the doings of the Government officials could
be watched, the documents stolen, and all the
evidence and witnesses hunted up bought off
or spirited away. The employment of A. M
Gibson as a special agent is also a bitter pill,
and because he has heretofore written some
harsh things of Gen. Garfield an attempt is
made to put the latter in a false position. Mr.
Gibson was for several years the Washington
correspondent of the New I ork Sun, and one
of the sharpest of a sharp lot of journalists. He
has what they call a decided "nose for news"
-an eye that can pierce a brick wall, It is a
knowledge of this itet that worries the "star
route" thieves. Then the engagement of Col.
Cook is another soutee of trouble to the "stars."
The Republican says it is because of his fa
miliarity with the methods of the class who
are usually depended upon here to furnish
such evidence as may be needed to establish
any theory of defense that. may be determined
upon; that his skill in manipulating perjurers
is to be used against the poor, innocent "star
routers." it. is just. possible that Cail. Oook's
skill in this direction did have something to do
withI his retention. But it, is silly for any,
body to charge that the Government has any
interest in using these umethmods to convict. in.
notent persons. It. is to prevent, their beinig
useod to enable guilty rascals to escape that
this prcaut ion has been taken, and that move
knocked a good many pegs from under the
feet of 11rady, D~orsey & Co. They are ready
to spend a good pile of their iilgottLen swag to
get clear, and the fact that the Government.
has gone to work by such a cairef'ul and thor,.
oughi system is what makes t hem howl.
it 1.9 possile that some of the persons sup
posed to be inmplicated in these mail fraud; are
innocent. Perhaps it may turn out, as some
clainm, that. there hasa been no frauds-at least
none that. can be proved. Bumt whatever thme
result of the cases now under i nvestigtionm
there are circumstances which raise a very
strong presummption, and give rise to opinions
which even failure to conviCt will never re.
miove. it. sem fl uite natumrail t hat when ilti
ces are sought after which involve great labor
'and res.ponsibility and carry very moderate
compensation, suspicion should be engender
edh that there nmust be something attractive inm
themi which does not appear on the surface.
When it is also seen that many of the incumn
bents of these offices who went, in poor as a
church mouse retire with large fortunes, the
gossips will not be satisfied with the explana
tion alm'st invariably given, that the sudden
ly acquired riches camne through tortunate
speculations in stocks or real estate. There
are not a few persons now resident in Wash,.
ington maintaining political and costly estab
lishments, and moving in good cociety, who
came here from their former homes with no
more than one suit. of clothes on their backs,
but after holding office a few years go out and
ever after fare sumptuously and clothe them
selves in purple and fine linen. Ex Assistant
Postmaster General 13radiy may be, as his
friends say, innocent of au~v wrong doing but
the fact that. he was not a rich man by any
means wheni he was appointed to thme office a
little over four years ago and that while the
salary is only $2,600 per annum he has grown
immensely wealthy, goes far to g ive credence
to the charges against him. IHe is now said to
be worth $1,000,000 and lives accordingly,,be
sides indulging the luxury of two daily and
one Sunday newspaper to defend his good
name. Yet it, is not impossible that all this
was gained by lucky stock speculations. ft
there is no other evidence against him we shall
have to assume that it was. We shall soon see.
In prowling around the Post Office Depart.
0ent in search of something interesting I got
into the dead-letter office recently and found
a regular curiosity shop. Will reserve the
account of what I saw and learned for another
letter. Thiy grand old Congressional Library
is also an interesting place to spend idle hours,
and I mean sbhortly to tell you all about it.

The Three Essentials.
There are three things which are essential
to establish and maintain successfully a good
scool in any town or community. The first
of these essentials Is a suitable building or
house in which to teach. This should be well
furnished with all the necessary school farni
ture and appliances for teaching, and pleasant
ly and conveniently looated.
The second essential is a good teacher or
teachers, as the requirements may demand,
possessing in a sufficient measure those india
pensible qualifications of every successful
teacher, namely-'-learning, grace and co0
The third and last essential is plenty of ma
terial to work on and an appreciative commu
nity to look to as Its constituency--that Is, a
people who have the children, the means to
send to school, and who value education at Its
There are other conditions and advantages,
such as healthfulness of locAtion, accessibility
by railroad, the prop of denominational influ
ence, and from the State, from benevolent as
sociatione or individuals, but all their consid.
erations, important as they are, may be set
down as only secondary in their character.
They are valuable as accidental and adventi
tious aids to the school, but are not absolute
ly necessary to success.
Show us the town neighborhood, or com
munity which possesses the three essentials
named above in the requisite degree-good
house, good teachers and plenty of the right
sort of material-and if it has not a perma-,
nently established and flourishing school in Its
midst it is simply because the proper effort
has never been made there.
Will not the Pickens Graded School have all
of the three essentials, as well as some of the
other advantages mentioned? It is confident.
ly believed that it will possess them in an em
Went degree, and that the day is not far dis%
taut when Pickens will be able to boast as
good a school as can be afforded by any other
town in the up country. D.
