Whilst out last week in obodi
adco to tlnvt Btupid Bocial custom,
known as making cuIIb (nml in
my moBt secret heart, boing most
heartily i)loiiBed when I found my
peoplo out) I called at ono placo
whorotho daughter of tho house,
ob tho French would say, was in a
etato of most profound melan
choly, and all about nothing, as
far as I could discern. She wub
not even happily miserable
enough to have a good cry. Her
woes woro really mole hills that
eho had magnified into moun
tains. Tho words of a recent au
thor came to my mind, "Do not
go open-armed to meet misfor
tune, or aggravate it by imaginary
woes. Bo resoluto to nourish
Jifo into bloom. Tnko pity upon
yoursolf and begin by bidding
sorrow 'avaunt.' " So speaks M.
de Maulde in a book addressed to
Now, I am often filled with
wonder that so many women are
given to look upon the dark side
of life, and so many young girls,
who might bo bcums of sunshine,
make of thomsolves littlo cent
ers of discord. It is a fact, every
woman knows it, and evory man
thinks it. 15y reason of the
stupidities and panderings to a
;ertain taBto on behalf of tho or
dinary novelist, womon have been
strangely misjudged. A fictional
etaudurcl has been set, and since
the day of Richardson and Field
ing, wo women have been trying
to livo up to it. From the days
of Pamela to those of Janico Me
rideth,Jgirls have beon playing up
to the popular horoino. Tho
novelist has set tho fashions in
dress, in mannors, in head gea.r,
in everything, and woman has
stupidly followed. I can carry
my memory back and recall Dol
ly Varden hats, Trilby frocks,
Modes u la Gibson, Coill'ure a la
Janico, ad infinitum. Tho man
milliner, E. Bok, fiddles, and wo
douco. It is ridiculous.
Tho young man whom I men
tioned last week, referring to
theso things, classed thorn as "so
ciety varnish," and I rather think
the expression apt, and the high
er tho polish given to tho varnish,
tho easior is it scratched.
A woman given to griof and
foolish melancholy, is a woman
selfish, and, therefore, tho most
unpleasant thing, for tho time, of
Uodfl creatures. A clieoriul wo
man will radiato good. I, who in
a long lifo havo seen many human
shipwrecks, have, I rejoice to say,
seen still more men won to last
ing good and well-doing in the
world's work by a word of suggest
ion from a woman. A matron
can bo a mother to moro than
her own sons. A girl should bo
an influence for good, and, by
tho force of her own cultivated
cheorfulness, make all around her
rollect cheerfulness. 1 mean you
who aro reading. You are not
different to any ono else in your
occasional 'uluo spells. Wo aro
all alike, and, in common with
dogs and hogs and cats and rats
tempted to mope ; but, it is this
tondonoy you must conquer, and
each time you givo way you ren
der the claims of custom strong
er and stronger; and your habit
will stamp its seal upon your
face, so that, before long, tho
ruddy cheeks and bright eyes that
onco delighted all beholders, will
bo changed, and you will be on
tho high road to become an ob
ject of avorsiou. The enchant
ress wovo magic wobs about the
unconscious Merlin, and wo must
beware, lest by our own sorcery
wo weave unbreakable chains in
the air about ourselves.
It is Btrango how differently men
aro affected by disappointment.
Amongst an old buudlo of letters,
dated many, many years ago, I
havo a manuscript yellow with
age. It was sent to a friend of
mine (long since dead) and writ
ten by a youth, who, at that time,
"plied his book diligently." He
was disappointed in lovo (though
this sat lightly upon him) and a
littlo later given the "cold shoul
der" by a girl friend. This last
really troubled him. For a time
ho took to poetry and blank verse
with a decided bias Shellev words,
and, later, bent his mind to mon

national household word. I pub

Flour Mill and Oil Mill.
A Press reporter got tangled
up with Sam J. DoLong, of South
Concho, and Will Macnabb, on
tho mill question last Thursday.
The PnEss man had a hard time
of it with tho gentlemen named,
on tho Hour mill proposition, on
which thoy wouldn t enthuse a
littlo bit, but when tho mattor of
an oil mill came up both of thorn
warmed up to it in great shape.
Mr. DeLong said, that a largo
quantity of cotton would be raised
here, and that it was an easy crop
to raise, requiring comparatively
littlo moisture. Mr. Macnabb
was of tho same opinion, and
spoke of tho quality of cotton
raised horo which, he said, was
tho finest and largest staple pro
duced in the state. The buyers,
ho Baid, would come here and buy
on a Now Orleans market price
and Mississippi cotton quality
basis, whereas our cotton was
worth about 2-' per pound moro.
Lot us havo the flour mill, to bo
suro, but lot us not overlook the
other good thing, tho oil mill.
There will bo plenty of material
right at hand to run an oil mill,
nd its operation would cut to
tho advantage of San Angolo and
territory like a double-edged
sword. It would produce tho
various products of feed at a less
cost, saving tho out freight on
raw material and in freight on the
finished product; and an ample
home market is ready for those
products among our stockmen.
"Won't Follow Advice After Paying
In a recent article a prominent
physician says, "it is next to im
possible for the physician to get
his patients to carry out any pre
scribed course of hygiene or diet
to tho smallest extent; he has but
one resort loft, namely, the drug
treatment." When medicines
are used for chronic constipation,
the most mild and gentle obtain
able, such as Chamberlain's
Stomach and Liver Tablets,
should be employed. Their use
is uot followed by constipation as
thoy leave tho bowels in a natural
and healthy condition. For sale
