THE A WEEKLY NEWSPAPER DEVOTED TO STOCK-FARMING. OL VI. CANYON CITY, TEXAS, THURSDAY. NOVEMBER 6, 1902. NO. 35 The election is over and those elected are the officers of the entire community, and not any set of men. Their obligation JA to the country and every citi zen should strive to aid them in the enforcement of the laws and the upbuilding of the communi ty and its morals. Good citi zens should encourage officers in doing their duty.' One of the strougest things that a good of ficer bas to contend with, when the trial of an evil doer is going on, is the influence exerted by a crowd gathering around and giving encouragement by pleas ing looks and frowns when the evidence or rulings of the court are for or against the criminal. The ordinary juryman is uncon ciously highly susceptible to this influence, and courts are constituted of human beings who unconsciously do wrpng when trying to do right. He charitable to others and do your duty. Don't Forget Burton-Lingo Co., have a car of White Mountain Cedar posts. They are reeled clean and you will find them right in line. Mothers, how often have you sat down and had a familiar heart to heart talk with your son whose habits ydu do not admire? How often have you told him some of the evils of malice, envy, revenge and ha tred? How often have you talk ed to him of the beauties and blessings of Charity? We may ask how many of you have ever given the matter serious thought and have any real civilized ideas on such subjects? Do not most of you want to get even with the person whom you believe has done you an in jury instead of following the teachings of Christ? Don't forget to order the cele brated Red Wood shingles. They will not cup, shrink, swell, nor bum. Sold by Canvon Lumber Co. The Awful Swofirins Habit. The young ladies of a Nebras ka town have united on a rigid resolution not to receive atten tion from any man who uses profane language. There is al most general complaint over an alledged downward tendency toward profanity- The fact that to indulge in 'any profane, indecent or vulgar language in any public place or near any private residence is a crime in Texas, appears to have been overlooked. If statutes and or dinances to that effect have moved any heroic profauity hurler or even an occasional small boy to seek a secluded place to enjoy himself, nobody has heard of the remarkable case. Most persons who de light to add to their jokes, speeches and diatribes the pro fane emphasis greatly prefer to 'curse" in a loud voice where they can be heard by an admir ing audience, and more especi ally by those who do not like it. Dallas News. Burton -Lingo Co. Want to figure that bill of lumber for you, and show you their select stock. Many a man believes it lie promises a person his vote he is morally bound regardless of subsequent changes of condi tions. Everyone is assuredly under strong obligations to so use his vote that Le will do the most good for himself, his fami ly and his country, and we be lieve he should be controlled by facts and circumstances at the time he goes to vote and not by those surrounding him at an ear lier period. Again, we do not believe that anyone should ex pect his friends to vote for him when there is no reasonable hope for his election, and de prive him of an opportunity of making a second choice. Such was the condition of many peo ple during the recent election. A voter's duty to the whole com munity must ever be much stronger than a promise to one individual who is only a small part of the entire community. Besides to let in an evil man is a greater positive wrong to the friend than the refusal of a com plimentary vote; then how much greater to wrong the entire com munity? It Cost Him Money.

With an ax in her hand Mrs. Emma Welsh climed to the roof of a blacksmith shop, and from that to a second story window of a gambling house in Fort Gib son last night, and after smash ing the window she got inside where her husband was found.
