Dr. Martin wan at her bout in the
meeting, and mud ono of the most
helpful addressed from the boy
,fandpoint perhaps ever heard In I hi
It), i
A', II. Kuquua, chairman of th
executive committer, outlined Uie
work incident to (lift appointment of
the committee of which bo 1m chair

churches will have a man in I ha work
nd that under direction of Ihlg row
11 ill too the boya will be enabled to
inaugurate a system of self-govcrn-nirnt
that argue well for tlio ad
vance, of nil the faculties of the
niiud.
Mr, Fuqua called attention to tho
fact i hat the boys of today are the
men of affairs tomorrow; that the
coming mau of affairs needs a clear
brain with all or his senses alert.
In fain of the fait that competition
will be among men of that character.
I ho boy ho blown a large amount

Later In the meeting Mr. Fuqua
will; "1 love Texas. 1 love her bis
'orj, her boy and her girls, I
o her institutions and her laws. 1
iru io lunch In love with Texan, with"
iiuarillo especially, that. I expect to
umiinue to live here, to die here,

Rebukes F.astc rn-rs.,
Mr. Fuqua told of having been on
a train a few days Hlnce, attached
to which wan a magnificent Pullman
far tarrylug a party of millionaire
'tiiine ow ner8 en route to the south
went to impect their properties. He
recited how when the Texan line had
been almost reached, the conductor
canio through and apologized to his
.distinguished passengers, telling
them that they -would not b0 permit
ted to drink liquor, nor play cards
while In, Txas.
' Mr. Fuqua then told of the anger
engendered by, reason of thlg an
nouncement by the conductor. He
Stated, Incidentally, that he had al
ways made it a rule to etay out of
"conversations that were not address
ed to him, but that finally the epi
thets of the party were exhausted
Fo far aa the state of Texas, her
tawa and legislatures making them
were concerned, and then, came a
jrocted to the individual citizen. It
.was recited that anyone who would
Jive In Texas wag of a certain Impre
iienslble character, and that was suf
ficient to bring Mr. Fuqua Into the
cocferuation.
Ho told the men that he "lived In
Texas, was proud of the fact and was
glad that the laws forbidding the
playing of cards and the drinking
of alcoholic bad been paeeed and
had no apology to offer to any who
happened not to like them." Mr,
Fuqua stated that "they finally ad
mitted upon malurer thought that
there was good reason tor the pass
age of the laws," ,
Others Speak,
Mesiin. Fryer and Rusnell, to two
members of the committee present
aside from Mr. Fuqua, spoke briefly,
giving asKurancea that they will aa
slat wiih the undertaking, being vi
tally Interested In the proposition.
It was later intimated ihat In the
interest of the Immediate activity
of the boys, that temporary head
quarters may be established while
the plans for the permanent home
i.re under consideration. The mat
ter was held by the committeemen
to be one of aucb Importance that It
cannot be looked upon with light
nesn. They will lose no time, there

THE HI1.IMK OF TEXAS.
In a paper read before tho South
Texas Medical association. Dr. J
Mark O. Ferrell, of Richmond, calls
attention to the inadequate provls
ion for the care of the insane in Tex
as.
Io part Dr. O, Farrell's paper reads
aa follows;
Our alienists every year, In sta
tlstical reports, show u Indisputable
evidence of the alarming Increase of
our Insane population.
These reports show not only the
normal increase due to a growing
population, but year by year with
hcvor a halt, the per ccntage of fhe
insane has gone higher and higher
until their care has become of grav
est importance.
That asylum room is not now suf
ficient for their accommodation is
known to every county Judge in Tex
as; that it bag never, with tho excep
tion of a few brief periods, been ade
quate has been told to every legisla
ture for years In the biennial reports
of asylum superintendents.
Whenever a little additional room
is doled out to an institution by a
grudging legislature a rush of appli
cations go 'forward and ere another
spasm of generous dealing overtakes
our wise solons tbe jails are again
crowded with these unfortunates.
Now as to results: 1day there
are In jail and on poor farms of tbe
state several hundred Insane people.
This unasylumed insane, .while, of
course, varying as to Identity and
numbers, is practically conslstant. A
few of those couvlcted are committed
to an asylum within reasonable
time, depending altogether upon the
lurk of the Individual in losing his
sanity during a gencrouu fit of the
state and a consequent spurt la asy
lum room. Some nty In Jail a year
or two, nd a great many dm before
provision Is ever made for their
proper care. In answer lo Inquiry
by mo, one of th.i asylum superinten
dents wrote thsi bo had admitted
to his iiiHiltuHgii patients who had
beer confined In' jail for ten years.
What per cent of theso peoplo do
you suppose pass from tho acute to
the chronic and Inctirnbln forms of
Insanity through thrs Improper en
vironment and lack of skllle,i atten
tion? It is well known that treat
ment to avail in cnrsble rases, must
not only be of Intelligent direction,
systematic, constant and tinder suit
able conditions, but must be begun
early, Tho inaane. of our Jails are
almost never given any attention oth
er than that received by their fellow
prisoners, They cat the same food,
are locked In the same cells, recelvo
the same cursings If the icuard hap
pens lo be brutally Inclined', and get
the samo consideration In all things
as do their companion Jn misery.
With them ar prisoners charged
with various offenses against our
Isws; some guilty of daunting crim
inal practices, many vt the lowest
human type, .filthy us" to personal
habits; these are the constaut asso
ciates of the Jail Insane. Some
times male and female, the criminal
and the crazy all bunk together.
This is not a pretty picture, nor
Is It pleasant to exhibit it, but If
you think it overpulnted, make your
own Investigation and you will find
that the average Texas Jail, while
often beautiful In architectural ex
terior, would put to shame the so
called "Mexican dungeons" soiptly
expressed to our mind the kind of
prison wo would expect In a seml
clvllized country, but that, we have
"dungeons" at home coulj not for
a moment be acknowledged. There
are of course exceptions, .but In gen
eral. In place of soap and water tho
Idea seems to prevail that onn stink
deserves another, so that the aver
ago 'commissioners court provides
easy money for tho" agent with the
patent disinfectant. ' His stuff1 us
ually costs a few dimes a barrel to
make ahd nets him as niany dollars,
but what's the odds' whVn It is guar
anteed and kills the smell.
This U iiot all you' will find. Un
der the law the snerirf 6f the coun
ty feeds hlH prisoners' at so much
per head, the contract varying some
what, but the amount paid Is barely
sufficient to puTchase"and have pre
pared the plainest food, especially at
the preseurhlgh prices, but he Is al
lowed aa profit every dollar he can
squeeze out of the margin between
the cost of the food and the main
tenance of his prisoners.'
There aro very few who do not
make this margin profit him, even
if it sometimes Is at th expense of
human stomachs. '
As phyvkians to several hundred
state convicts I have tho medical care,
of numbers of those received direct
from Jail after conviction. Admitted
ly, -long conflnqjneut will so soften
a prisoner that he i unable to do
hard work when first put out, ibut

icca numbers of these newly
received convicts' weak for the lack
of food, and 11 '8 w-ell understood by
tbe sergeants in charge that new
men havo to bo watched to prevent
their overeating, the state, by the
way, providing aft ' abundance of
wholesome food for tbem.
This is the treatment accorded
our mentally sick by tne groat state
of Texas, and it' Is a thame that I
hope soon to see wiped out,
As n mutter of present day ex
pediency, il may be tiiat the confine
ment of o:iv Insane lu tho jails to
gether with the criminal classes, In
stead f m suitable retreats for their
detention and treatment, la the very
best w can do; but it Is repugnant
to modem civilization that disease
should be classed with crime, and it
Is the duty of otir profession to lend
aid in so educating 'the publUMhat

MBS. DIBHF.LL MAKES
CALL TO ALL WOMEN",
Should Buy ' the hed Cross Xmus
' Seals ahd Further a Good Cause.
The following request from Mrs
J. D. Dlbrell ot Seguin, president of
the Texas Federation of Woman's
clubs, is self-explanatory i
To the Club. Presidents: Tbe elev-
enth annual convention recently ad
journed' at San. Angelo passed a
Ti:R-lAi;jiiCAD World-
The sum of $3,000 was contrib
uted from various sources dining
the month of November tor tho sup
port of railroad men's home, at
Highland Park, 111. Tim Panhandle
railroad editor while, grutcful enough
to appreciate and approve tho spirit
prompting these contributions, does
not coincide with this met hod of
supporting old and disabled om
raden, who through misfortune and
other causes has not been able to
lay aside a small competency for old
age. Some of the best men of our
country aro engaged in the hazard
ous occupation of railroad work nnd
devote their lives to tbJa important
work How many aro there la any
branch of skilled labor who ar un
able to provide for old. age. Many
thousands. Our government nnd
our states provide for their old sol
diers by giving them homes. Many
railroad companies re providing
pension systems which are excellent
methods of taking care of aged em
ployes. But some of their restric
tions are so severe that all can not
profit from the efforts of the sys
tem. We think the best method for
handling this question, which is one
of Importance und a growing one '
as follows. Let the four great or
ders, the B. of L. K.. the II. of I K.
and F., th(. 0. It. ( and the H. of it.
T., each contribute an equal amount,
$50,000 or such an amount as neces
sary, and build und equip satisfactory
quarters at tome designated point
and build it In such a style and man
ner as befitting to the thousands of
men represented. After this home
Is build let it be maintained by these
organizations dividing the expense
pro rata among them with reference
to tbe numbers belonging to each
order. This would prove an easy
plun and one that is entirely feasible
and should meet with the approba
tion and encouragement of every
man In all the four orders. This
would provide aplace for those w ho
needed tho benefltg of such an Insti
tution and there aro many, would
put the "expenso whero it belonged
Instead of having a homo maintained
by contributions. Further, any man
who had been a member of any of
these orders a number of years and
still In good standing and should
meet with bad luck, ho would not
feel so manv qualms of conscience at
going to a home supported by his
brothers and which he had helped
build "and support as he would In
going to a place supported by con
tributions. Thts Is a subject that is
worthy of consideration and discus
sion and we hope to hear further
from this matter through other pa
pers and tb Panhandle railroad man
would be glad to Tecelve and publish
any communication relative to this
matter. Hope aonie good brother
will start the matter rolling so it
will get before the grand lodgo as
fast as the annual meetings take
place, j '

resolution recommending all club
women to use the Red Cross Christ
mas seals for packages. ' Mrs. M. A.
Vallaway, 323 Forest avenue, Dal
las, Texas, has had many thousands
of these packages shipped to her and
requests that tho clubs In different
towns Induce their druggists or oth
er dealers in holiday goods to. send
to her at once orders for these seals.
All clb women ar requested to
seal their Christmas packages with
those emblems ot a noble band of
workers. Yourg respectfully,
MRS. JOSEPHINE B. DIBRELL,
President T. F. W. C.
These little Red Cross seals arc on
tale by a number of Amarillo mer
chants. Atoention is called to tbe
fact that the sales are of no profit
to the dealers, as they handle them
only for the benefit of tbe move
ments sought to be aided by the
Texas Federation of Women's clubs.
Amarillo ladies are Interested in this
movement, and a large sale and a
liberal use of the stamps will bo
highly. appreciated. This is one of
the means of moulding sentiment in
favor of the movements sought to be
forwarded, and as the cost of the at
tractive litUo stickers is trivial, all,
may afford them for the sealing of
the Christmas packages.

And I was your Hiawatha true,
What matter? We met and Hfe waj

Wo loved and parted and died.
Who shall say?
And I've come back to earth just ta

Do you remember the time we
met?
And are you guessing where we shall
meet
When we shall die and the world
forget?
