SHIHEE, TEX, THU NOV,, 16th, '93,
Anioros of tho present drought,
a havo hoard a greal deal said re
garding tho clUcacy of prayer as
regards the liklihood of God's bend
ing rain in answer to prayers from
tho peoplo. One gentleman re
marked that ho believed that if tho
peoplo would all get together and
pray God to send rain that rain
nottld surely fall. Tho Gazette
admires and commends sueh an
exhibition of faith but at thb samo
timo can not reeoncilo such ideas
with our conception of Gud's laws.
We believe that droughts aio the
agents of God employed to carry
out changes and operations in Na
ture that are beyond our under
standing. If crops aro short and
cattle suffer and other evils bot-et
tho land this year, next year tho
land will more than make up for
the loss through the incicased fer
tility ot the soil resulting from the
drought. We believo God to be a
God ol lovo and every law and act
of His is for tho good of tho land
if wo could but sec it so. They ap
pear strango and without purpose,
como of them, but if man could but
penetrate tho veil of mystery that
intervenes between him and the
-will of his Maker, all things would
bo made plain.

Tnnius is nothing liko a man's
heart being in his work and unless
such is tho case ho labors under a
great disadvantage! When I raised
tho standard for tho little city of
Shiner I meant every word I said.
I have maintained that sho is tho
fairest, busiest, cleanest, most busi-ness-liko
and most moral littlo city
in the land and I am agoing to
keep right on saying it as long as
I havo any breath in my body.
Spread the news all over the State,
thcro aro homes here in the vicini
ty of Shiner for every man that
wants a home. Hero in Shiner
thcro is a better opening for busi
ness men than they can find in
any other part of tho State. Her
business houses aro solid as money
and brains can make them and her
business men are men who are
alert and alive to tho best inteicsts
of tho town. This is not idle talk
but can be backed up with figures
and facts. Trade is coming this
way and will keep on coming this
way and tho inducements offered
by Shiner merchants aro such as
carry conviction. I said that Shi
ner was a moral town and I stand
by my abortion. Yon can't find a
town anywhere wlicro there aro
less brawls, disturbances, drunken
ess and disorders of all kinds than
there are in Shiner. Her free schools
aro ot tho best and aro in charge of
a man who makes it a constant
study to perfect them in every
branch and dc artmrnt. Peoplo
who want ti iducit,' their children
can find i." Mttr pl.sco in tho

A Pretty Oood Story.
Dr. C. McGarity returned from a,
visit to hecsvillo, Gonzales county,
last week. Ho reports tho discovery
ofauimmenso subterranean river
discovered by Mr. C. C. Littlffield,
iu tho western portion of Gonzales
county. Tho phenomenal artesian
well was struck at the depth of 207
feet and the water is now flowing
outside tho casing of a four inch
pipe. Tho flow from tho river has
tilled up all tho tanks and water
holes in its course. If tho stream
continues to ilowi it will soon reach
tho G iiadalnpo river 40 miles distant
ami has alrcauy made a llowing
creek of water. Mr. Littlefield has

How ol water but as yet it lias bat

river and is a great boon to tho
people in that Motion of country.
