thick 2000 feet under tho surface If these
are facts then Terrell has a corner on

agitated over the fact which beats a gold

TEXAS JOURNALISM
At this season when the different press
associations are about to meet some of the
papers begin to talk business The Vernon
Call has the following bit of sense
If the newspapers of Northwest Texas
would form an association to regulate rates
for foreign advertisements a great deal
could be done to help the needy newspaper
men in having ready cash to pay his print
ers and buy his supplies at wholesale prices
But how can this be done when three
fourths of the newspapers of Northwest
Texas carry such a large sheet of foreign
advertisements placed in their respect ivej
papers by an auxilliary house over whicn J
the local newspaper man has no say so or
control of his columns The Call would be
glad to join an association to regulate living
prices but cannot be a party to carrying
advertisements for a company for which we
receive no pay or beneSt
The Waxahachio Mirror says suppose
we have a business meeting and the Dal
las Times Herald seconds the motion in this
way
That is a pertinent suggestion The
Texas press association would have been
much better off or rather its members
would have been benefited had more time
beei gven to questions of business than so
much to less important matters If the
Texas uress association would asrieuponi
a basis of advertising rates and more
thoroughly understand tho real value of ad
vertising and then work together in the in
terest of maintaining that rate the news
papers would be practically benefited and
tho membership inci cased The Mirrors
suggestion is worthy of being made the
chief topic of discussion at the approaching
Corsicana meeting
The West Texas press association meets
at Colorado City to morrow and they would
do well to give some attention to the sub
ject as it is one that touches tho business
closely The boys are going to be royally
entertained by the Colorado people and Dr
Tolar will show the craft that he is no
slower outside than he is in the Clipper
wluch is one of the best edited papers in
the state The Saline Call will also have
a chance to show that Colorado salt has
lost none of its savor
If reports be true the San Angelo Stan
dard will be represented by Editor Murphy
alone as Editor Guthrie had at last accounts
taken a bad case of grip to bed with him
TheStandard however is one of the papers
that scissors looks for regularly and treats
with due consideration Thats because it
is a newspaper in the true sense of term

COMBAT OF FLOWERS
One of the Most Beautiful Fetes
Witnessed in Mexico City
BEYOND FANCYS IMAGINATION
A Procession of Forty Carriages Entirely Hidden
by Fragrant Flowers
A Week of Pleasure Commemorative of
the GreatCNt Truedy the World
Ever Witnessed Thousands
of Sight -Seers
Special Correspondence o the Gazette
City of Mexico April 12 Of all the
beautiful fetes ever witnessed in this city
the combat of flowers which took place
to day has eclipsed them all Can fancy
imagine anything more beautiful than about
forty carriages of aU sizes and shapes eng
tirely hidden by fnnrant flowers To give
a description of each carriage would take
too much time and space so I will only
speak of the most notable
The American colony represented the
first steamboat It was an immense cart
covered with sky blue cloth on the top of
which was placed the ship which must
have measured about twenty five feet in
length Tho wheels were covered with
smilax fuchias and heliotrope The sides
of the ship were garlanded with roses ger
aniums aud gardenias and at each angle
rose palms and some beautiful shrubbery
on the poop was written New York and
on one of the wheels -Robert Fulton 1S07
The car was drawn by six horses the
drivers wearing the costume of Napoleon
t
The carriage of the British minister was
wholly decorated with tea roses
The victoria of the minister of Italy was
hidden by lilies roses and camelias
The minister of Brazils carriage was
very tasteful with its decorations wholly of
pansies and heliotrope
The Jockey clubs break was among the
most notable The spokes of its wheels
were nothing but artificial violets so
natural as to provoke discussions as to
whether they were natural or artificial
The rear ot the carriage was hidden by
heliotropu and the sidesby roses camelias
hyacinths and azalias During the drive
the members of the club who were in the
break threw out more than 2000 bouquets
of camelias and gardenias
Tho circus Orrin represented a large
Roman car with the United States colors
and only palm and other tropical fruits for
adornments
The private carriages were numerous and
more artistic in decoration
The carriage of Miss Romero Rubio sister-in-law
of the president attracted con
siderable attention by its tasteful decora
tion the spokes of the wheels of violets the
axles of marguerites and the box of roses
carnations easter lilies and camelias and
crowning it all four of Mexicos prettiest
girls bewitchiugly attired A buirgy was
arranged so as to represent a large basket
offlowers in the midst of which was a lit
tle willow crib from which could be seen
peeping from among a layer of pink roses
the pretty golden head f a little baby from
two to three years of age
A minature dog cart almost a toy in
which were two little children disappear
ing almost in their nest of flowers the
whole being drawn by a little goat also
adorned with flowers
Another was a wind mill of the old fash
ioned kind composed of white roses
lilies of the valley and marguerites The
front wheels showed the colors of Mexico
in flowers and evergreen and the rear ones
the colors of France One of the most
original was adorned of sheaves of wheat
dried knotted wherever necessary with
bright red ribbon The sight was so guy
ana so different from others that it was
among the most admired
Another represented a swan in which
were two pretty young girls
Still another represented a pavilion of
camelias roses lilies and magnolias
Ono which carried off the first prize had
a canopy of roses camelias gardenias and
magnolias each different garland was sepa
rated by another garland of tropical leaves
Another which received a prize had a
huge umbrella hidden by flowers and at
the rear a beautiful lyre
One quite unique was a small carriage of
camelias lilies white roses and mar
guerites and it was drawn by the prettiest
of silver gray donkeys The carriage con
tained four lovely little children two in the
costume of pages and two a la Pompadour
Flowers were tin own on all tho friends
and also whenever a carriage met another
of the adorned ones the combat would take
place
The weather marred the pic lsure for it
was one of the dustiest afternoons I have
seen in Mexico The rainy season has al
ready begun this year although it is said
never to begin before June but this little
annoyance was not a drawback to the
crowd for the pesco from the statue of
Charles IV to Chapultepec was crowded
by carriages and pedestrians
A great many residences were all adorned
with flowers and small boquets were
showered upon the passer by
The prizes given numbered some articles
of great value the most remarkable being
a writing desk all inlaid with mother of
pearl
The Easter festivals although almost a
thing of the past must not nevertheless be
passed by without making a few remarks
about their mode of celebrating com
mencing with Holy Thursday
The afternoon was spent by the faithful
in visiting the churches At 4 tho last sup
per took place Just before had been
washed in most all of the churches little
childrens feet instead of the beggars
which are always spoken of as being the
ones
The Mexicans arc quite different in their
decorations from the Catholics of France
or those of the poor little Texas churches
With those countries flowers aud over
greens always form tho chief decorations
while here it is always gold and silver pic
tures and wax figures It is true that at
night the cathedral Sagrain Professe San
Domingo and Santa Brigita presented a
gorgeous aspect with its hundreds of lighted
tapers On the streets aud in all the public
gardens visitors from all the republic had
come to swell the crowd of tho city Booths
had been built all around the Zocalo where
all the native drinks sherbet and lemonade
could be had At the Alameda music was
kept up until 2 a in It was all decorated
with Japanese lanterns and colored glass
globes It all seemed more of a week of
pleasure and recreation than of the week
which commemorates the greatest tragedy
the world has ever witnessed
Good Friday all the altars and paintings
were hung with purple and on that day
Mexico really looked sad not that the peo
ple looked penitent but because the citv
was deserted for from early morn families
could be seen with largo baskets taking the
tramways to some of the surrounding vil
lages to spend the day under tho shade of
somo large tree in the flowery meadow
To be doing as the others I also left the
city my destination being the village of
ixtacaico in which was to be played Les
trcs Caides the three falls of our Savior
on his way to Calvary Istacalco is one
of tho most picturesque villages on the
Viga canal and for many a year it has been
a i eligious center as it is said that since
decades upon decades the poor Indians
have continued to represent this play
Years ago it contained a monastery ami
churches but now all have
peareu ino now remaining church con
tains a large yard in iront wnicn is r
closed on the sides bv high walls In
spacious yard the Passion Play was h
At J o clocK m the afternoon the pa
priest tried to bring to our minds the
of Christ from childhood until Hi
After this a curtain was drawn aside and
jvooden figure of Christ borne on the
Pflioulders of costumed Indians represent
ing the Rornuu soldiers was taken
through an aisle crowded by kneeling men
women and children In the yard were
more costumed Indians among whom were
Caichas Annaaias and Pontius Pilate The I
wooden form of Christ was borne across
the yard and made in some mechanical
way to fell three times as it is recorded
of Christ on His way to Calvary Then
tho figure was taken back in the church
Every available inch was taken up by the
Indians who were bemoaning and wailing
Then the Christ appeared in tho person of
aydung Indian His accusers tho Jews
snubbed spat and flogged him until he and
they finally disappeared A few moments
later they reappeared carrying a limp fig
ure of wax which they fastened to the
cross by means of ropes and after is hafjp
oecn uoisicu two Indians with hammers
and nails nailed the hands and feet to the
cross
Taken altogether all was so real the
poor Indians wailing as if their hearts were
breaking that I was very glad to find my
self far from that erving multitude and eng
deavoring to shake that sinister picture off
my mind
Next day Saturday of Glorv as it is here
called when the bells of the cathedral
broke their two days silence followed by
all the other church bells it was the signal
for the effigies of the arch traitor Judas to
be burned It was a curious sight to vis
itors and new comers
D Easter was very quiet the churches not
having any extra adornments and no flowers
on the altars to remind one of the risen
Lord Makic Locuens
Another Letter on the Subject
Tort WoitTH Tex April IS 1S9I
Editor Gillette Vf
Judge Finer is a great man His commu
nication on the Stlf inst sets this question
forever at rest I am glad that in his inter
esting and elaborate autobiography he told
us something about his father Otherwise
some of us might have supposed that he
had sprung directly from the brain of Jupi
ter And if ho had only known how it
would humiliate me to be informed that my
humblo name had never before fallen within
tho range of his great optics I feel sure he
would have spared me that pain I suppose
that now having succeeded in bringing my
self to the notice of that prodigious gentle
man I ought to be ready to die happy- But
1 am not There is one thing I want to find
out first That is how the sages who live
over the creek and -up the hollow and
wear such legends as -colonel -judge
and squire prefixed to their name can
come to town and get interviewed in the
paper and then have the gall to upbraid
anybody else for seeking novrspaper noto
riety
Tho -judge says he knew how the great
body of Texas teachers stand on the text
book question He also expresses great
affection and high esteem for the noble
profession It is passing strange that he
was not as careful at first to exhonerate the
many of that noble profession us he was
to blamothe few
But our judge plays the rhetorician in
differently anyhow He hardly seems de
cided what to do He starts out apparently
to deny the correctness of the intcrviewthen
suddenly wheels about and tries to justify
it Perhaps he thought he might want to
be interviewed again some time So he
lets the newspaper man off lightly and turns
the full force of his pent up thunder loose
upon the school teacher One thing
seems certain While the judge is not
willing to say that Tun Gazettes report is
exactly correct he evidently saw the report
as published and thought about a correc
tion but declined the idea It was not
necessary because he is a private citizen
forsooth and Oh judge Who does it
hurt but a few teachers J His maiii
object seems to be to make it appear that
his language does not include all the
teachers nor the majority of them It is
true that he said a few teachers but if
the reader will take the trouble to look up
that famous interview he will find I think
that nowhere in it does the judge try to
blame anybody but the teachers for this
bill The entire odium is cast upon them
Ho draws no contrast between tho few
teachers and the majority of them lie
does contrast i few teachers with the
people A few teachers are trying to
manipulate the measure through The
legislature is exhorted to look to the
interests of the people rather than the
wishes of the few teachers Tho judge
has probably heard the lawyers say that it
is sometimes necessary to look at the con
text in order to get the meaning of a word
Looking at the whole interview the obvious
lorcc ot as mere used is not to sepa
rate a small number of teachers from
the main body of teachers but
to separate the teachers as a class from the
main body of the people The teachers
aro designated as few in comparison
with the people It is done by way of a
sneer just as they are said to think them
selves the embodiment of wisdom and
learning by way of ridicule It is all in
the same high strain of swelling scorn
This will be perfectly clear to any persotl
of ordinary intelligence who will trouble
himself to read the full interview Of
course if the judge did not use this lan
guage he is not responsible for it
The Denton statesman next grows angry
and gets red in the face because I spell it
jedge Ho should remember that whom
the gods would destroy they first make
mad and keep lus temper The judge
them grows wise in his own estimation and
thinks I aui not smart Another wise man
has said Seest thou a man wise in his own
conceit there is more hope for a fool than
for him or words to that effect It has
also Deen saiu mat priue goetn ocloro a
fall
As the judge draws to a close he ap
parently wants to bo real ugly In my
former communication I said that it is
popular to abuse the teacher The judge
says I do not believe the statement nor
does anybody else Of course this is a
matter of opinion and any attempt to raise
an issue of veracity about it would be piti
ful indeed I am willing for an enlight
ened public to decide between our contrary
opinions on this subject My statement is
a matter of common information and com
mon remark llie judge probably has
observing faculties of too refined an order
to take in anything so common and may
not therefore know it
But I hope he will not try to brow beat
Let us not my dear judge resort to hard
names I have heard that it is a confession
of weakness
You will notice Mr Editor that I have
quit spelling it jedge because the
judge did not seem to like it Having
made this ample concession to the gentle
mans wounded dignity I hope he may re
gain his serenity of mind and be able to
proceed in a more peaceable mood
