At the Christian Ohuroh.
The sermon at the Christian church
last night was worthy of an audience
ten times greater than the attendance.
All Christian people and others could
have heard it with profit. The sub
ject, "How to Read the Sorlptures,"
was handled in an ingenious and mas
. terly manner. The design of the ser
mon was to show tht t the scriptures
are, to bo treated as other sciences are
now treated, namely, by the induc
tive process of reasoning, that they
are susceptible to that process and
treated thus give equally goodresults
in religions doctrine as that process
has given in science since it was in
troduced by Sir Roger Bacon. It was
a more than usually able effort and
instructive even to persons most con
versant with religious matters. If
the sermon was original with the
speaker, as therels no reason to doubt,
it places him in first rank as a forensic
religious plaader, and if ho has other
sermons equal to that last night no
Waco christian can afford to neglect
the services at the Christian churoh.
There will be preaching to-night and
all tho week.
Dreams That Pay.
Appropos of tho county commls
slonor,, that body containes an odd
droll follow known all over the coun
ty as Tom Cox. His peculiarity is
dreams. His dreams aro practical
ones. Whenever he dreams about
any particular cow or horse ho goes
next day and buys the animal or
when about a ploco of land on his
farm with cotton on it he always
plants that piece of land in cotton,
What Is most singular Is tlmt he
always makes money out of tho anl
muls ho buys in ills dreams und raises
blgcotton on bis vision plecos of laud.
Last summer he lay one day on u
benoh in tho court house fast asleep
and in his sleep he dreamed a county
droaai. Tho free bridge was tho exol
tiug thomo then and It wns puzzling
tho commissioners, Tom Cox
dreamed that ho was digging a tun
nel under tho rlvor to avoid the
bridge monopoly. Ho told his dream
and folks laughed at him. But Tom
Cox's dreams are not to bo sneezed
at. There was one who did not laugh
and that was Jim Buker. Ho caught
on to Cox's dream, and if you go up
tho river about a quator of a mile
abovo tho bridge you will see the
.river spunned by a magniaolent free
roadway. That roadway grow out of
Tom Cox's dream.
