THE TVICE-A-WEEK HERALD, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 26, 1905
THE TVVICE.A.WEEIC HERALD Published Each Tu',dy and Friday by the AMARILLO PUBI.1SHINO iCOMPANY G. P. BROOKS, WILL ROBINSON. Buslnesi Manager City Editor SUBSCRIPTION 11.00 PER YEAR Official Organ of tha City of Anarlllo. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 26, 1905 The Child ress Post celebrates Christmas by the issue of an elab orate special edition, worthy in every respect of the splendid country it represents. It was an unappreciated bit of irony that the weather man should have brought that big load of pros pectors to town in the first real blizzard of the season, but then come to think of it, he gave us ample waring. Next Monday is the day we make a number of resolutions and keep none of them. That is the way with humanity, but it is per haps the better off for having made the resolution;!, whether they are kept or not. While faithful to the last, there isone class in Amarillo that is glad that Christmas is over and that is the clerical staff of the various re tail stores. Their's was a hard week which finished Saturday night, and they well deserved the rest that came Sunday and yester day. Senator W. A. Clark of Wyo ming has a pleasing little habit. Every time a grandchild is horn to him, he presents it with a check 'for $1,000,000. We really think Governor Cobb of Mains Tells of Slate's Degeneracy lla a Courageous Speech Before the ..Maine Club of New York, He Telle 4he Shameful Truth About the Maine Law that Places a 1 Premium Upon Fraud and Deceit. CRIES OUT AGAINST EVILS OF THE "JOINT" AND "BLIND PIG." Data audi That Paopla Rcapact tha Law. State of Maloa Flooded with Vila Uquofi, and Authorlliea ara Powarlaaa to SUm tha Tlda. the custom should be more gen eral. If it were the writer hereof would not have to worry about the square-up that is coming as sure as fate next Monday. Now, "in the old gray dawn of the morning after," are you not ready to admit that you are the better man for the coming of Christmas? If the recurrent of the day failed to call up similar and better days, there must be some thing wrong in your make-up. The Herald has received much literature recently in regard to Christian Science, and it has been carefully studied by the sporting editor, who has been having much trouble with toothache, and really needed something of the sort. For the rest of the staff the old time religion is abundantly satisfying. The scarcity of coal that has prevailed all this month more or less has caused a general hope that that gas factory will be an assured thing before another winter. Fuel and illuminating gas are treasures in a climate like this and it will be a glad day for Amarillo when the berjuice is turned into the mains.

The effort is a most ambitious one, well written and all that, but the scribe falls down when it comes to the future part of it. The writer knows something of that country, and.'now, that the government has tardily taken hold of the great irrigation plant, honestly believes that it will be the finest irrigated section in whole world. That it has the best climate no one has ever disputed, Next Monday will be the annual swear-off day and Amarillo should celebrate the festival by making an cath that before, the new year ends, there will be an 'adequate system of permanent sidewalks in the twon, as well as the beginning of permanent street work. Ama rillo has been a reproach in the eyes of the southwest long enough) and has gotten to a 6ize where it cannot afford to neglect this phase of progress any longer. The absence of sidewalks and of streets, one might say, is the only blemish upon the place as a resi dent point and the deficiency should certainly be supplied dur ing 1906. PAY VOIR DEBTS. The man who is endeavoring to pay his debts and cannot is to be pitied and should be extended every help and courtesy possible. It isn't eyery man who can meet nis obligations promptly, and due allowance should be made for this. Very few men really desire to un duly push the payments of debts, ind it is not good business to do it. But tha 'man who contracts debts without the intention of pay ing them, or who gets behind and '.hen makes no effort to settle up me old scores should be treated with contempt by all honest peo ple, and made to feel that he is about as low-down as men grow. Debt is not disgraceful in itself.but to persistently fail and to refuse to pay a debt is a disgrace. The sooner the people come to regard it in this light the better it will be for them. A man is of very 6mall caliber who will allow some other man to feed and clothe or other wise care for his wife and children without making an effort to pay for it, yet all of us know many men who habitually do this. The man who will do it will steal but for the fear of the law's punishment.-j-Brownwood Bulletin.

Some men, no matter how hard they try, are unlucky in securing a life partner. Such poor devils are to be pitied, of course, but instead we see them abused by women, statesmen and clergymen, who would find nothing admirable about Asostle Paul, were he livied to day. Listen to the following from Dr. Croup. Not a minute should be lost when a child shows symptoms of croup. I Chamberlain's Cough remedy given as soon as the child becomes hoarse, or even after the croupy cough appears, will prevent the at tack. It never fails, and is pleas ant and safe to take.

Hirsch, the noted Jewish rabbi, of Chicago1 "Bachelors do not contribute toward the mainte nance of a moral order. They en joy the blessings which society be stows but make no return. Cow ards they are. By the old Jewish teachers thev were classed with gamblers. This harsh classifica tion of bachelors does not apply to those who have denied themselves the joys of wedded life because they had to support relatives or realized that marriage would inter fere with their devotion to science, medicine or art, but it does apply to those who shun marriage be cause they fear to assume respon sibilities. "One of the growing evils of the day is the great increase in celi bacy. Even Jews are affected by this tendency. Perhaps in no other country is a life seclusion, the inner, the life away from the gaze of the world, so little culti vated as in America. We have pitched our lives at a certain key and we have missed the note of simplicity. We are distracted by multifarious duties and necessi ties. The current of the time is toward extravagance and luxury. "The young men 6ay they would not offer a girl a home less attrac tive than the one they ask her to leave. They say the girls would not begin where their mothers be gan thirty years ago. "The only cure is reversion to the simple life and an invitation to religion and all that it implies to come back to the family altars. Girls must learn that life is not all sunshine."
