LETTER FROM TEXAS.
"Rover," a Former Correspon
dent Writes Again.
118 FRIENDS WELCOME HIM.
Pays a Compliment to The Paper and to
"Uncle Zek." -
Crosby, Texas, Aptil 120h, 1905.
-Dear SentinelJournal You
know the old song about "The ciat's
come back again ;") well it's the
dog this time. The old dog "Ro
ver"'' that used to visit the c flices
of' the Sentina''l and tic J<,ur'iIl
quite often. But that tihs been so
nny years ago that ho vill nut
nieition their it umber, for ie is
till an old "batch," and if ho was
to take a notion t6 marry in his
old age, all thO girls might think
he was too old.
In the olden days, the Sentinel
and the Journal occupied different
households; but now, since they
have wiarriod aund beceiu ono, a
sitigle visit only will bo necessary.
I supposo the mnarr z has been a
happy on", for "T' combination
beois to be doing finely, especially
8incO "Unclo Zeke" has hoome
one of the family. Now I have
never had the pleasurc of knuwing.
"Uncle Zeke," but, ho rer..inds mu
of what I have of ten said of "Josh
Billings; " that ho wrote more
good hard 1sens, under the cover of
nonsense, than almost any writer
in the country.
I suppose soie of your readers
v ill wonder why old "Rover" came
back again, atter all these years, to
have a chat with them again. Well
I've often thought of doing so, but
never made the thought a deed,
until I sqw the "dispensary" ques.
ti'o.le rongly agitated.
Now, if any of' you older readers
re-mem ber me, they remember that
I was never a temperance tman, but
a red hot., straight out, "teetotaletr;"
hated whiskey worse than the
devil. While it is tie that I canl
say, and tha, k God that I can say
it, that not a single drink of the
accursed poison ever went down
my throat.; ye t it is gnly too sadly
trua, as some of you may know,
that tho "trail of.serpetit' has gone
over 01ne of mty people, and left
its deadly sting behind. And
A could you people hatvo seen all I've
Been, knowtn all I've knlown, they
wold' wond~er thatt I'm so bitter
against, It. No words can tell how
much I aibhOr' it, but the last stan
zu of that said, bittr little poem
called the "DI)runk1 l ard 's Daugh ter',''
oomels as near it as anything I ever
road. It is somnet hing like this:
"Tell mec I hate the bowl?
Hate is but a foeble wvord,
I loathe, abhor, my very soul
* With strong disgustL is stirred,
Whenever I sco', or hi ar, or tell
Of this dlark bever age of hell."
When I fir'st i'came West, I was
otten asked wherio I came fr'om1. I
said from South Carolina, and wvas
proud of it, but, of late years there
h ive heel) times whlen [ hava been
actually3 ashamted to own that
South Carolhna was my inother
* State. It is pretty hard(. isn't it,
when a boy is ashatmed of hiis
mnothet? 1Ar there is nothing
sweeter, better thani a good1 mot her.
TIhiere is crtiitly somethlin g r'ad i

Boys, men, how mianly of you
that bave good mother's, would likre
to go aroutnd and brag about it,
and say ''my miother runa a big
Swhalesale atnd oetail whtiskey shop,
thle biggest thinlg in the State."
Yet that i~a what miy o1ld mrothter
S'' t is doing, and1( I11am ashamed
of her' .
