THOMAS II. JOHNSON,
MONDAY, DIXIIMIlKlt 21 18H.1.
The Lioiit will Isiue no paper lo-morrow.
Clirlttmai Is a holiday In fact, and the Light's
working force, In common with the world at
Urge, will take It In for all It it worth, and the
Light takes this occasion to wish one and all
of its readers a merry Christmas, and a happy
Tiik Christmas edition of Ihe Abilene Re
porter is a double number of that excellent
paper, printed on tinted-toned paper, profuse
j illustrated with fine eriravinr,s, and more
than filled with excellent reading matter. The
edition displays much enterprise, and Abilene
should be proud of the Reporter and five it
the encouragement itdeserres.
Tin Light Is under obligations to almost
erery newspaper in Texas for courteous and
kind notices, and this acknowledgement is
made with all our heart. Courteous discipline
reflects honor vpon the press and enhances its
influence, while bullying, blackguardism and
discourtesy render it demoralizing to the mor
als and taste of the public, and destroy its in
flutnee with the best people In the community.
The Gatesvllle Advance sensibly says:
"A paper that waits until the battle is over
before it expresies an opinion may always be
on the popular side, but it will never wield
much Influence. It is demanded by the people
that papers that lead public senti
ment must have opinions and be bold to ex
press them. These are the journals that live
to attend the funerals of their mealy-mouthed
The following most generous compliment is
from that bright, pleasant evening contem
porary, the Waco Day s "The handsomest
and certainly the most Interesting holiday
paper that has come to The Day Is the San
Antonio Light, of the loth Instant. It is
quadruple the usual size of the paper, brim
ming over with appropriate illustrations and
reading matter, anil as to mechanical execution
and print Is simply superb. The Light has
also issued an annual almanac for 1884 that is
complete in its way. The paper is doing not
only a good work for Itself, but for San Anto
nio and Texas."
The Laredo Times accuses the Light of
attempting to feed some of the Democratic
papers on "taffy," because of our statement
that there were Dourbon journals and progres
sive Democratic papers. The fact is as the
Light stated it, and It is queer "taffy" to state
a well-known fact. Ifthe Laredo Times reads
the Light and understands what constitutes
"taffy," it must have observed that the Light
does not deal in tally. The Light said Cul
berson and Wellborn were whipped in by the
"machine," and the last sentence of the
Times shows we were right. It says s " If
they had voted for any oilier man for Speaker,
they would doubtless have paid for it with
their official positions."
The Galveston News has fired off a string
of fire crackers at Governor Ireland, charging
him with the responsibility for fence cutting.
But Governor Ireland will hardly hear the
noise. He is no more responsible for fence
cutticg than is the News. The Light pre
dicted that the fence cutting would blow Ire
land sky high and split his party In two j but,
nevertheless, it is opposed to doing Governor
Ireland wlllul Injustice, lie had no more
' power, by virtue of his constitutional powers,
to arrest fence cutting than the News has
ability to obtain deep water on Galveston bar
with a stove shovel and editorial flatulence.
The LIGHT considers Ireland a gubernatorial
failure, but that Is no reason why It should do
him wilful Injustice or suffer the News, the
would-be Warwick or king maker, to do so
without a protest.
The Blanco Star-Vindicator truly says:
"The old Alamo building at San Antonio
should be preserved, Intact, as eld Indepen
dence hall at Philadelphia Is; so the people of
Texas may always be reminded of Ihe heroism
of their forefathers a heroism without a
parallel in ihe world's history, and which won
forus the independence of the fairest country
on God's green earth. It was the blood of
Ihe Alamo martyrs that won Ihe field of San
Jacinto and gave Texas her freedom, Fan
nuil hall, Boston, Is called the cradle of
American liberty, but the Alamo Is even more
lhan this It Is not only Ihe cradle, of Texan
liberty a bloody one it's true but is also the
grave of despotism. It will Inspire In the
bosom of Ihe sons of the Lone Star State a
spirit that will forever resist to the death the
yoke of a despot. While stands the Alamo
Texas will be free "
l'OSIMASTKR II, A. BURDANK, of Laredo,
in a letter to the Houston Post in reply to
complaints about the management of lhat
office, gives the following reason why It lakes
so long for letters to go to immediate points
In Mexico: "The mall from the North ar
rives at Laredo at 6:05a. m. (whenon time);
Ihe Mexican National train for Monterey
leaves Laredo at 7:30. As I am allowed only
one clerk, It takes us unlit nearly 8 o'clock to
distribute our local malt. Another thing, the
mall for Mexico is not delivered to railroad
postal clerks from this office, but to a Mexi
can carrier, employed by the Mexican Gov
ernment, who brings the mall from New La
redo, Mexico, every day between the hours of
12 m. and t p. m., when the exchange mail is
ready for him. What the Postmaster of New
Laredo does with the mail, or how long he
keeps It in his office, I do not know. I do
know that every letter and paper arriving at
(his office by 12 o'clock m., destined for
Mexico, leaves hete the same day."
The publishers of the Light, have endeav
ored at all times to make it a representative
paper. That they have succeeded, Jn a great
measure, is evidenced by the many compli
ments given the paper by Its contemporaries.
The following from the Handera Enterprise is
particularly appreciated, and the Light will
always endeavor to ketp the good esteem it
has already earned: The Enterprise says:
"While we differ as widely as possible from
Ihe political sentiments of the San Antonio
Light, we nevertheless admire its bold and
manly advocacy of its principles and its un
qualified and outspoken condemnation of men
and measures whenever, in its judgment, they
deserve it. The fact that Ihe Light has grad
ually made considerable ascent upon Ihe hll'
of newspaper reipectability, diagging through
the debris of a heavily discounted political
party in Texas, is evidence of merit which
should not and cannot be overlooked. The
Light is, in very many respects, an excellent
dally paper, and richly deserves the extensive
patronage Its recent improvements indicate."
Christmas is supposed to be the anniver
sary of the birthday of Christ, and has for
many centuries been kept as a holy day by
nearly all Christian sects. Chaucer said ia
his lime during Christmas it "snowed of
meate and drinke," alluding to the general
prevalence of hospitality and good cheer
every house being open to all comers. In
England Christmas lasted with each family so
long as the yule log remained in the fireplace
unconsumed, and to protract the duration ol
this'.season of joy, good cheer, hospitality and
hilarity the yule log was purposely selected
from some noncombustible wood, and was
then soaked in water, or wine, to increase its
natural incombustibility with the view of pro
tracting the holiday. The Puritans treated
Christmas festivities as sinful and heathenish,
and made open war against Christmas, wear
ing faces of greater elongation and sourness
on this holy day to denote the sinfulness of all
good cheer and festivity, and their own near
ness to heaven. In the United States all the
Protestant sects indulge in puritanical views
about Christmas. We are not, by any means,
going to quarrel with these sects they may
think as they choose provided they do not
molest uj In our opinions still, wc do not
fancy a religion that condemns cheerfulness
as a crime, and good cheer as the chlel of
sins. Drunkeness and excess are brutal and
debasing at all times and seasons, but es
pecially on the reputed birthday of the Savior
of sinners, whose creed holds that no drunkard
can Inherit the kingdom of heaven. Hospital
ily, good cheer, fun mirth and enjoyment,
within the bounds of reason and decorum, are
not only innocent but commendable on many
accounts, particularly for the recreation of
mind and body afforded by them. Foreigners
visiting the United States are painfully sfuck
by the care-worn, haggard, prematurely old
look of our people, by their constant rush
and hurry and absorption In business cares.
The average American is a steam engine in
pantaloons and a frock coat; he has no time
to chew his food, and so he swallows It In
chunks. lie regards repose as the complet
es! bore, recreations as a waste of time, so
ciability as unadulterated nonsense, friendship
as only fit for poets, beardless boys and bread
and butter misses redolent of the boarding
house. Getting drunk and gambling are his
only relaxations from business, the first drowns
his senses and the last produces the excite
ment which he craves. Recreation recruits
body and mind and prolongs life and should
be encouraged. Cheerfulness and mirth, fun
and laughter are better than doctors and medi
cines. We hope every family in San Anto
nio will have its yule log and go in for hospi
tality, sociability, good cheer and enjoyment
during Christmas. Let them Invite their
friends to share their good cheer. It would
not surprise us at all if there were not in San
Antonio men who never have Invited a friend
to share their meals, not even during Christ
mas. Suppose all hands take a "new de
parture" In sociability and recreation an3
leave rag, tag and bobtail to get drunk!
Widows and orphans, the poor and the sick,
ought not to be overlooked or forgotten dur
ing Christmas, and we call upon all to re
member them by sending them such presents
and articles as they think would be most ac

Itema lllcanett from the State I'rrM anil
Paxkcr CmiNTY.-iThe first case of fence
cutting in Parker occurred last week. Mrr.
Llgor, a widow, had 160 acres fenced, all of
which she owned, but her fence was so cut as
to ruin it. This rct of vandalism was strongly
McLennan County. The town of Mc
Gregor is improving rapidly. It now boasts
of a first-rate newspaper, the Plaindealcr. It
cannot be mealy-mouthed wilh such a name
....Prohibition got a "black eye" at Mc
Gregor, but a good many people will get
"black eyes" hereafter.
Concho County. The fence cutters have
been pretty busy In this county they have cut
the fences of S. II. Ilronaugh, Mr. McLaln
and Mr. Gatlin. Mcl-aln had only 1200
enclosed and owned every acre, and had
fenced in nn road. Mr. Gatlin put up his
fence again, but it was cut and his gate burned
the night afterwards.
Kx-Governor Lubbock has surrendered to
a widow and been reconstructed,. ..Judge A.
O. Coolcy, of Gillespie county, has gone on
a trip to St. Louis, Baltimore and New York
....Donham has a National bank..,. San
Saba has a candidate in the field for Assessor
.... Four counterfeiters have been arrested in
Waco.... The oil mill In Corsicana is in
operation,,,. There was a destructive fire in
Milam County. Cameron, the county
seat, has improved more the present year
than for several years previously. Seven
nice brick business houses and a good many
nice dwellings have been built. The mer
chants arc all solvent and doing well. Com
was over an average crop, and is selling at
40 cents per bushel. Cotton was not quite
an average. Lands, both for farming and
grazing, have advanced from 50 to 200 per
cent, within the past year and a. e still rising.
Immigration into Ihe county has exceeded
that of any past year. Over 50 German fam
ilies have settled in one neighborhood.
Hunt County. This county has a popula
tion of 25,000, and is settled almost entirely
by w.hlte people; the soil is rich; black prairie
unimproved lands range from $3 to $3, and
Improved from $10 to $25. Wood is plenti
ful, water is easily obtained and all portions of
the county possess ample shipping facilities.
Greenville, the county seat, contains a popu
lation of 3500, and boasts of two first rate
newspapers, the Banner and the Herald.,,.
Mr. J. II. Johnson, one ol Ihe oldest citizens
and first settlers, died last week.... Walton &
Hardgraves, merchants, were closed. Their
creditors had an attachment for them....
Trade at Greenville has been brisk, and all
lines ol business have prospered.
