We are in receipt of a communication
from "177C" in reply to "True Bluo" of
the Kyle Star. As the writer says the Star
appears to have donied him a hearing, we
should have published his article, but it
earns in only yesterday evouhg, after our
space was full. 1776 denies, in most post
tive terms, the charge of True Bluo that he
is in league with the republican party. He
says he votod for Garfield, but in 1881 vot
ed for Cleveland, because he believed in
free trado.and still does so. 1776 further de
nies that the leaders of the uon parti
sans of Hays oountyare republicans; with the
exception of the writer, all the others have
been life-long democrats. He adds: "The
fact is, I dou't know an out and out repub
lican who olaims to be a non-partisan,"

A few days since the cotton stalks were a

the stalks. The worms have made a clean
sweep, but it wili be beneficial to the pick

Editor Fbee Press:
Please allow me space lu your papor to
rebut some of the ninny derogatory, and, to
my mind, appaiently fidse charges made
against the officials in charge of cJm-utional
matters in this county.
Now, for the benefit of the uninitiated, I
would state that there aro three partios con
oeruod in granting teachers certificates.
These are the county judge, tho exsaiiua
tiou board and the state superintendent.
The oounty judge merely ascertains the
moral character of ths applicant, and If the
examination board recommeuds lit tit or her
as having passed a satisfactory examination,
grunts him or her a certificate. So there
fore, tho charge of partiality shown by the
comity judge is unfounded aud false. He
possesses no power whatever to show lieor
Him to any applicant
Tbe examination is publio. One of the
board selects from ten to twonty questions,
writos them ou a black board, aud two of
thorn pass wpou tho writteu replies of the
applicant. Tho MSS. of tho applicants are
then placed on file in the county judge's of
fice. It is nonsonslcal to charge the board wttk
fraud. Sworn officials, publio examination,
applicants' replies filod for publio investiga-
iou. There is not even a shadow of fraud.
How as to the Stute Superintendent? His
function iu tho matter is to seloct a practi
cal list of questions to tost the applicant's
ability to teach. The legislature defiues the
brnncnes to be taught. Mr, Cooper's re
nomination by the people of the great state
of Texas shows forcibly that he is no "sap.
head" or "yap."
Now, I am a stranger; I don't care a ceut
for my part who is elected or dofeatod, but
I do not like to see so much smoke where
no fire exists. It is all auy mau, teacher or
othorwiso, ought to ask is a squaro dual all
Fellow teachers, tho ohms of our nUitui

Mr. CrocWi's "Last Word."
Epitoii Fbee Puexs.
As the Uevorend Parsou Wallace V. 0. S.
I. T. P. F. If. C. Texas has given ma te
nudorstand that I iniirt uot handle his unme
snvmoro, and to let hiiu alouo aud Insinuat
ing there might be some oue hurt, if I
didn't,Itako this method of, lotting him know
that I close, and give hliu llcenso to use my
name whouever he likes to As I have beou
lately Informed thore wero two Wallaces,
and one was oallod Hull bound and the
other Hoavon bouud, aud fe.iriug I may havo
gotthom mixed up lu some way, aud did
uot know "tJthsr fro:u waich." But I hope
this ouo U Huaveu bouud, although he may
bs sido tracked. Thut is no particular evi
deuce that ho will be ditched howavor, aud
thou even a fightiug preacher would bs uot
quite such a terror I dou't think as a
straight out Hollhouiid man, Aud nou as
the Editor may bo tirod printing for such
cranks as we aro. I aocept ths proposition
to quit and with a few more remarks ou
spirits I close on this subjeot, I hope for all
time. And as to the uumber of spirits I am
possessor of auswariug to tho Parson's
analogy of the man, uot having a dollar in
his pocket will apply iu his case, aud I will
nly say I do not pretend to say or ksow
how many spirits tho Parsou has, us I learn
from the Bible there wore as many as seven
dovils oast out ot eue mau iu oldon time;
oau't say how mauy a man may have non
and live. By pardon for all offences, and with
well wishes all around, I remain veryo
speetfully. W. B. CnooKEii.
