t'tittutauqua Meetlup.
A well attended meeting of our cltlton
was held at the court bouse on yesterday,
to take aotlon as to the future of our Chau
tauqua. After some discussion a committee
of three consisting of Gid Jobuson, A. A,
Thomas aud Fred Urowu was appointed to
oolleot means to the aniouut ot $700 to se
cure a programme for this year's session,
and another oommittee consisting of Mayor
Hardy, Ed, J. L, Green aud Thos. John
son to solioit subscriptions of stock in the
Real Estate Association as auxilllsry to the
Chautauqua. Some two thousand dollars
was subscribed on tho spot, and we learn
the other committee have collected about
half of the requirod $700.
We learn that Mr. DuBoso baa promised
positively to lend his invalu blo aid, and
the probabilities now are that we shall have
the most successful session of the Obau tuu
qua this year that wo have ever had.
Flowers in 51 Id winter.
West Texas thus far tho preseut season,
has fairly rivalod Southern California in
oliniato. Peach and pear troe leaves are still
greou on the trees, while roses and even
more dolicato flowers are not rare. We
woro forcibly reminded of theso facts this
week by tho presentation by our friend,
Mrs. Gid Johnson, of a large and elegant
bouquot of choloe tea rosea of soveral dif
ferent yaricitlos. Although in mid winter,
It would graoe the spring time any day.
The grounds about tho bouse of Mr. and
Mrs. Johnson, although in cultivation ouly
a couple of years, are already famed for a
profusion of choice flowers, as they will
soon be for fruits also. Nor is this oaso ex
ceptional in Texas, for the same blessed
morning in came Master Danlol MurchtBon,
son of our friend M. II. Murohison, with
another bouquet of roses and other flowers,
also of fine varieties while diversified in
color, Mr. M, not only has grounds ad
mirably "sot off" with flowers but is ouo of
our most successful growers of grapes and
other fruits.
We wonder what our friendH at tho north
will think of our winter gardens horo in
Church Matters.
The Methodists of this plaoe, who sineo
conference have not had regular ministerial
services, were quite overjoyed at the arrival
of their regular pastor In charge, Rev. Mr.
Scott. He held his first services on Sun
day mornng last, when ho preached to a
large aud nppreoiativo audience. High
hopes are entertained of a period oi sua-
dessful minis-torial labor.
Elder Wilkins. the Christian minister
mentioned in our last, held several meetings
in spite of the rain and mud. He proaohed
on Sunday a very good sermon on man.
principally in his religious relations. The
preacher is a fine singer as well. We learn
that arrangements Tare sought to tie maao
to secure his services for this place and
Lockhort jointly. This ought to be prac
tical now that the distance between these
points is almost annihilated. It seems
to us the Presbyterians also might be abld
to make a Bimilar arrangement.

The quiet and peaceful hamlet designat
