Wondor if Mr. Julian will lend his influ
ence to further the Chautauqua movement
m Hon Marcos f Home have expressed
doubts on the aubjeot, on the ground that
the religious character of the institution
militates against his "Free Thinking" or
"Free Press" notions.
The aboye is from the Kyle Newt Jeff.
McLcmore, editor. The course of the Fees
Press as to the Chautauqua movement here
answers his question. It has uniformly ad.
vooated the movement, and its editor has
taken some shnres in it
In his renimkable solicitude as to the re
ligious statrs of the Free Press, Mr. Mo
Lemore, as ever, but eohoes the voioe of
other "fel'ows of the baser sort" who sus
tain hiru. The whisperings that we are "an
infidel", etc., we know, have long been cir
culated by these fellows wherever they fan.
oied they might be believed. We will not,
of course, go into any defense on this sub
ject, but simply ask either our friends or ei
emies to point to. any paper in Texas, out
side of the strictly religious journals, whioh
advocates a higher standard of morals and
practical Christianity than the Frf.e Press,
And we will further suggest, that the as
sumption of inquisitorial powers, religiously
speaking, by Mr. MoLemore, is exceedingly
edifying. A man who never tells the truth
if he can possibly avoid it ; who has repeat
edly been "in trouble" because of various
sorts of "crookedness", and who 'a now un
der bond to answer to a criminal charge iu
the courts at Austin, is certainly eminently
well qualified to sit in judgment on the al
leged heresies of the Free Pbess !

Our Normal School.
We were remiss of duty last week ia not
announcing again the meeting of our Sum
mer Normal, which convened on yesterday,
at Coronal Institute. We were unable to
be present at the opening, but learn there
Are a goodly number in attendance from
abroad. The school will no doubt bo a
very interesting and profitable one, and we
hope to see a large attendance this term.
Free grass" is being daily exhibited in
our court house yard, the gates proving no
obstacle to wandering cattle. It is quite
clear that gates of another kind will have to
be substituted, at an additional expense to
the county. We speak with' fear and trem
bling, lest their High Mightiness, the Coun
ty Commissioners, should adjudge us guilty
of "high treason".
We are glad to notice the movement indi
cated elsewhere in our columns, in favor of
the formation of a Literary and Library As
sociation in our town. The Fbeb Pbess,
having earnestly and persistently advocated
this idea, of course wishes it a hearty God-
Wo have seen no summer like this in the
way of rain, save that of '73 the first one
we spent here. i
Our Chautauqua aud real estate associa
tions are in roceipt of their charters. The
constriction of a fence has been let, the
grounds are being prepared, and everything
looks favorable for an auspicious opening
on the 11th of August.
The sessions of our Normal School will
open at 8 a. m., and close about 12 m. No
afternoon sessions. The school opened
with a fair attendance from various quarters,
notwithstanding bad weather. It will un
doubtedly be largely attended. .
A great deal is said about the opening of
our Chautauqua, August 11th. Wonder if
it is realized that a great deal of work is to
be done ? It is high time all the committees
were organized and at work.
While in the county clerk's office one day
this week, we examined some new record
books just received from Geo. D. Barnard
A Co.. of St Louis. There are six of tnem,
and thov are the handsomest we have seen,
being bound in full Russia, with embossed
covers. A tag attached to each book testifies
that they are the same exhibited at the New
Orleans Exposition, where the manufactur
ers got the first premiums for the best blank
