IVash Jones' Boom.
Very few people who read a newspaper
have any idea of how much trouble it is
to get it into shape. For an editor to do
himself and his subject justice, he must
not be disturbed while incubating the
editorial egg that is to develop into a
full-fledged editorial. If he is disturbed
on his nest or has to leave it, that egg
will not hatch, which is a grievous disappointment
not only to the editorial
hen, but likewise to the reading public.
"We were incubating yesterday the subject
of " Wash Jones' Boom in Texas,"
but owing to various and sundry interruptions,
we propose to explain our
editorial failure to hatch out. "We had
to fling it in the waste basket.
It was nine o'clock in the morning.
The printers were about out of copy, so
we had to write in a hurry. That in itself
is enough to make a journalist nervous
and incapable of collecting his
thoughts. It was rather chilly outside,
and every visitor who opened the door

ay, "Just at this political " when the
door opens and lets in a tidal wave, and
a gentleman with a large roll of manuscript
under his arm. We act as if we
do not see him. He introduces himself
as Col. Byron McScribbler. He says :
" I have about concluded to allow your
paper to publish this little poetic gem."
We tell him we are very busy, and for
him to shut the door. We came very
near telling him to shut it from the outside.
"I would like to read you a few cantos."
" Haven't got time now printers are
waiting for copy."
McScribb'er (persuasively) u Suppose
you give them this little gem of
mine to set up," and he lays the bundle
on the desk.. We say "no" very
ly. He says he will leave it for
us to penile at our leisure, and to be
very careful of it, as he would not take
$5,000 for it. If it i3 published he will
pay cosh for ten copies. The poet goes
out and leaves the door open. We push
the bundle off into the waste basket,
and resume our labors on the "Wash

will be fixed up all right. He next
wants a copy of the Bungtown Banner
of D ceiuber 19. He expects us to stop
booming up Wash Jones, and hunt for
the Bungtown Banner of December 19.
We tell him we are too busy right then
to do so. Col. Hufly puts his hat on
the hide of his head, and says : "When
the time of my advertisement expires,
please discontinue it, sah, and stop my
paper." He goes, out and leaves the
door open. We have lost a three dollar
advertisement oving to "Wash Jones'

around and look at us as wolves are supposed
to do when they congregate around

more we began to write "Just at this

A Kcw Church Beneficiary.
A new scheme has broken out among
the Eastern churches to provide iop
" God's poor." Each church is buying
a farm, to which poor people are sent to
work out their salvation in fear and turnip
patches. This combination of religion
and ruta bagas is certainly a happy
one, and ought to come into general
practice. Steady work on a farm cannot
but be far more preferable to the poor
of a church than good advice and fine
conversation, that is hoav lavished upon
them regardless of cost. There is
always something on a farm that anybody
can do, and do well, and that will
be worth good wages, if the laborer is
fairly remunerated, and a church society
wouid be sure to do this. Then, in the
fall, when the golden harvest was gathered,
the church members would of
course give their patronage to their own
farm aad lay in their winter supply of
potatoes, carrots, beets, onions, etc. ,
from their own vines and figtrees, so to
speak. The report of the Superintendent
would show whither the farm was
drifting financially, and if it needed any
fertilizing top dressing in the way of a
mortgage, fillisters whose health is
poor, from hard study anTl overwork,
instead of being sent on an expensive
tour to the Holy Laud, could be transplanted
from the stifling atmosphere of
the study to the beautiful air of the
balmy, breezy country, and set to raising
cucumbers on the farm. The exercise
would do them good, even if they
did not raise enough cucumbers for a
mess, and -what the church lost on cucumbers
it would more than save on
traveling expenses. It seems to us as
though the true plan of salvation has
been struck at last. It is not through
any of the five hundred different plans
advocated by the five hundred different
churches, but through the modest cauliflower,
the lowly onion and the golden
crookneck summer squash. Pcctfs
A little Georgia baby fell down a
well and was already out of sight when
a neighbor, attracted by its mother's
cries, came to rescue it. In taking off
the timbers, through whose crevices the
child had fallen, some of them fell into
the water. The disturbance in the water
caused the child to rise to the surface,
when she was picked up and resuscitated.
That is certainly a new way of
