How Texas Appears to a Former Oconeoan.
Wo aro permitted to print tho follow
ing privato lottor from tho Hov. M. F.
Whltakor, a formor citizen of Oconeo
couuty, but now of Texas, to Clerk of
Court, C. lt. D. Burns. Wo fool sure it
will bo road with interest by bis many
friends throughout this county :
Duncauvillo, Texas, Juno 8, IDOL-Mr.
C. lt. I). Hums, Walhalla, S. C.-My Old
Friend and Brother : You doubtless will
bo surprised to got a letter from me,
though thc unexpected is what happens
frequently. I havo a fow days that 1 can
sparc in this busy world to read and
think, and taking up my old friond, Tho
Koowoo Courier, and reading so many
items of interest that call to mind the
days of yoro, that I am almost forced to
write to you to know what is tho matter
with tho political world in tho old homo
I watch with interest tho over changing
phases of politics. Especially do 1 fool
au interest in tho muddlo into which
Tillman nndMcLaurin havo placed them
selves by tho resignation of their scats
in tho United States Senate. I will bo
gland to know thc inwardness of the
matter from ono who is immediately on
tho ground, and knowing thal you keep
abreast with tllOSO things you can givo
mo tho information that 1 want.
I am sorry to seo so many names that
I formerly esteemed so highly numbered
with those that havo passed over tho
river. Tho names of J. J. Keith and N.
A. Hurley, together with J. H. Sanders,
and last, but not least, Oliver Martin, of
Richland, havo all gono ovor tho turbid
stream since we left tho old loved State,
and wo trust aro resting beneath the
shadoof tho tree of lifo. 1 myself havo
recently passed tho fiftieth mile stone in
tho journey of life and so far away from
tho friends who have stood by mo in
sumo of tho struggles of life, that some
times I feel lonely, but then I think of
tho many kind hearted people with whom
I am associated that I take courage and
start afresh in thc race of life.
Hut I must stop this rumination and
write more of something that will inte
rest you. Probably you want to know
what I am doing in and for tho Lone
Star Stato and what 1 think of this
almost boundless expanse of rich vales
and hills beyond the Mississippi. As lo
what I am doing : I am still preaching
and farming. Am living in a pleasant
little town in Dallas county (Duncanville).
Havo one church here and one in Cle
burne, another little city of ten or twelve
thousand inhabitants, and ono in Hood
county, soventy miles away. Wo have
bought a farm in Hood county, in the
far famed valley of tho H ra/.os river, 240
acres, rich and fertile. Wo expect to
move to tho farm this fall.
I will say here that tho natural advan
tages of this country are untold. Of
courso many obstacles will havo to bo
overcome beforo tills country will reach
tho zenith of its glory; but such rapid
progress as it is making makes one's head
grow dizzy. The wonderful discovery of
oil at Corsicana and Beaumont is far
famed, and especially at Beaumont beg
gars description.
But the agricultural possibilities of
this country far surpass any other source
of wealth, and to me is of more interest
to tho common pooplo. Sometimos a
crop of ono kind is an entire failure, but
this is hardly felt by tho farmers. For
instance, tho wheat and oat crop was
eaten up by a strange i ascot, but the
land was planted in corn and cotton and
tho prospeot is fine. A man to know
Texas must live here several years. I Im
possibilities cannot he understood by the
passing traveler.
Yes, I am well satisfied with my move
and expect to make my homo here tho
balance of my days.
I forgot to state what this country ex
ports-cattle, hogs, horses and mules;
cotton, oafs, wheat and corn almost
every year. The imports are few indeed
c nipared to many other parts of tho
I hopo to be able in a few years to visit
the home State and see and talk with old
fi ionds.
1 am pleased to learn of your success
in tho late elections and trust yon will
write me a long letter, giving me an idea
of what is tho political trouble and out
look, (.ive my love to all friends and
Inquirers and reserve a large portion for
yourself. Yours ever and truly,
M. F. Whitaker.

ther twins by birth or not. There
is an illustration in tho caso of An
drew Frum and Alexander Summers,
wealthy cattle dealers in West Vir
ginia, who died recently on tho same
day, aged 84 years. They were born
on the same day, married sisters on
thc same day, lived on adjoining
farms all their lives, and died of the
same disease at the same hour.
