Tin; Nkws will tako advertising with the understanding that if it has not a larger lecal circulation than any daily paper published in Waco, no oharge will bo made for the advertiso mont. Galveston went for Hogg, and Galveston is a largo oity. That oauso is weak, indcod, that bases its sole hope of suocess on tho prejudices of a people. George Clark has proven that he is the people's friend without pandering to the sentiment hostile to capital. Ex-Senator Chilton is loading a dynamite bomb when 'ho advocates the adoption of tho majority rule in tho nominating convention. As Judgo Aldredge says, '"Clark is a peculiar man and one peculiarity of his is that ho generally gets what ho goes after. Ho is after Hogg's po litical scalp and he will havo it." George Clark's defense of the peo ple's homes will win for him the sup port and lasting gratitude of the oc cupant of the "cabin by tho wayside." All industry is paralyzed, business stagnated and capital fled, from the effects of ono term of Hogg and "do as I pleaso-ism." Wo shuddor to think what would be the effects of second te:m. The Fifth ward in Houston, the railroad ward of the city, went for Hogg. It was the only ward in Hous ton carried by the governor. This doesn't confirm the statement made by Hogg that the railroad men were afraid to support him. The fact that tho proposition to abolish tho two-thirds rulo comes from the supporters of Gov. Hogg shows they do not oxpoot to got moro than a majority in tho convention. Their proposition will be heard of no more forever when they find thoy lave not oven a majority. Ab the wave of popular opinion sweeps on and county after county in structs for tho littlo Waoo giant, even the most pig-headed of the opposition cannot mistake the signs of tho times, and their utmost and most desperate, but futilo ondeavors arc now being made in tho vein hopo of looking tho oonvontion at Houston. It seems to us that Gov. Hogg had better be at homo attending to some of those numerous things that ho in tonds to do if ro-eleoted, than spending his timo inflicting tho dear jeoplo with an attempted justification of his mis-administration. If ho does not do them now ho never will, for "there is a tide in tho affairs of gov ernors which taken at the flood leads down to privato life," and he is seated on tho very crest of it bejond tho icaoh of hopo or holp. The Clark meTTiiTGalveston made an open, honest fight Wednesday night, and the Hogg men worked un der cover. The Clark men had their headquarters at the Tremont hotel. The Hogg men's headquarters were unknown to anybody but a few of the managers. Walter Gresham is a dele gate from the Eleventh ward and Miles Crowley is a delegate from the Fifth. The city and county of Gal veston are in the grasp of these two mon, one a railroad magnate and the other a ward heeler. The "infloo ence" that circulates throhgh such mediums is legal tender. THE DALLAS NEWS CROP REPORT. Tho Dallas News of yesterday eon tained fiftcon columns sot in nonpariel tjpo givinR tho oondition and rolativo aorcago compared with last year of the cropofToxas, Tho enterprise of tho Nows in oollcoting and printing this valuable and interesting information is without a parallol in tho South and has been seldom equaled anywhere. Ono has tho fields of Texr.s,an euipiro within itself, beforo his oyes whon ho cazes at this macnifioont roport. A summary of this voluminous mutter is as follows: "The orop roport represents 393 neighborhoods, covering the ootton and small grain counties of the state Tho ootton acreage in 270 neighbor hoods shows a decrease varying from 5 to 75 per cent; in 10 localities an in crease of from 10 to 300 per cent, and at 46 points tho same acicago as last season. Tho increase is principally in sod lands. Tho average decrease is 21.42. As a rulo there was sufficient rain during the seeding poriod to insure a cood stand. The season is betweon two and three weeks lato. The spring drouth did no damage other than re tard planting and provent gormination and growth of plant. In many locali ties replanting was necessary owing to cold waves and hailstorms. The present condition ef tho plant is fully up to last year's May average. Tho great'majority of the reports indicate olean fields and that farmers are well up with their work. Mois turo was neoded at tho time the re ports wero made up, but since then root soiking rains have been general except in portions of tho southwest, west central and northwest sections of the state, that are pastural rather than farming' districts. Tho rain will bo of great benefit, improving tho condi tion of cotton fully S per cent. Cut worms are reported in Hardin, Polk, San Jacinto, Caldwell, Medina and Maverick counties. Wheat and oats in the grain belt proper aro fine and promise a better yield por aero than last year. The proposed acreage in whoat was out short by drouth, but the acreage a9 compared with last season is about the somo. The acreage of oats shows an increaso of 20 per cent. Wheat is finely headed and tho indications are that tho quality of the grain will bo better than for years. Outside of the small grain belt proper tho crops are short, tho greatest decrease being in wheat. Tho straw is short but the plant as a rule well headed. In somo localities both wheat and oats are total failures, Tho condition of other orops aro promising. Sugar cane is doing finely on an increased acreage. Corn is healthy and vigorous, and the acreage increaso is about proportionately as large as the deorease in ootton. Some of tho crop reports noto that farmers are turning their attention to vegeta ble gardens to the ncgleot of ootton. Castor beans arc being oxperimentcd with, Fruit promises a half crop." Govornor Hogg in his attempt at a speech at Paris on the Gth, when aeoused of appointing Chilton to tho senate because he was not ombarrassed (tainted) with a Oonfodorato record, replied that "I appointed Horace Chil ton because I wanted to," and then gently inquired in dulcet tones, 'Does that satisfy you?" Wo tako pleasure in pointing to this one timo in whioh his excellency (goaded to it by ttio spur of tho moment, no doubt), has told the truth. Ho very evidently appointed Chilton "beoauso ho wanted to," as there could bo no other roasDn, and yet thoro aro a great number of pcoplo so unreasonablo as to suppose that there might be even better rea sons for appointing a senator than because our executive willed it. This seems to bo a very popular reason of our governor's, and explains a great many of his notions. And still wo are not satisfied. Hogg's pitiable effort to array the country against tho towns is very amusing. Ho attempts to work on credulity and prejudice only bringing tho contempt they so richly merit down on hiuisolf. Tho farmer is possessed of intelligonco to vote and act for himself, and he proposes to do it. Ho kcops informed on all issues, and all attempts to mislead him with falso orics or side-track him on dead issnes only meet tho sooin of the farmer, and the fiiluro they deserve. Tbo farmer has boon an equal sufferer under the present mis-administration, and ho is not to be deceived bv loud words and false . pretenses. Ho knows that the commission law is engrafted in the constitution boyond tho power of forty governors to remove it wero they so inclined, and tho cry raised by fiogg and his fuglemen that "tho commission is in danger" is as sound ing brass and tinkling cymbals to their ears. Hogg will learn after a whilo that the farmers arc not fools, and will cease to mako himself ridiculous. Tho Galveston "uiaohino" was well lubricated. All the organ factories in the coun try ae now turning out Cleveland organs. Hogg is responsible for the situa tion, but Tudge Clark holds the key to it. Elect Clark. Waoo has taken care of seven con ventions within the past thirty days. Waco is the convention centre of Texas. Texas was "held up" by that Prince of Pol.tical Highwayman, James S. Hogg. The people of Texas are coming to the rescue. Cowboys Jlalio n CoiuliYcfor "Dsiiici'." A band of cowboys in Montana hurt long noticed a course of behavior on tho part of a Northern Pacific train conductor which they determined not to tolerate. The con ductor did the worst thing, in a cowboy's opinion, thati any man could do lie acted like a dude; he "put on style." lie actu ally went so far as to swing himself oil the cars before they stopped, and, with one arm extended and head offensively erect, would shout: "Dingleville! All out for Dingleville'" His whole manner was arti ficial, affected and unbearable. This being noticed and no one is quicket to notice the hollow trickery of an eastern man than cowlwys are the .boys decided to "take him down." So one day they as sembled on the station platform in a semi circular line, into tho curve of which he must run as he leaped from the moving cars. The conductor did as he was ex pected to, the cowboys biirrounded him, nud he was bidden to dance. "nance!" they shouted. "Dance, or we'll shoot the toes off you I" At the words each cowboy pulled his pistol and begun shooting down into the platform planks, not exactly at the con ductor's feet, but so as to narrowly mis; them. They blazed nway and he danced, until, after ho wn all but exhausted and they had no moro shots to fire, they bade him go on with the train and never "show up" at Dinglevillo until he could behave like a man.

In some ex periments to test this use the husks were thrown into a rotary boilpr, and after be ing mixed with caustic soda and thorough ly boiled they form a kind of spongy paste, full of glutinous substance. This paste was then placed in a hydraulic press, so ns to separate tho gluten from tho fiber. A compact mass of fiber was then ob tained, which is worked in various ways. New York Telegram.
