What San Saba could do She
could rebuild the old burned down
Btoreand make a first class city
hall or any other kind of a hall in
the upper story and a nice store
on the lower floor She could es
tablish a tannery that would give
imployment to some of our citizens
and furnish a home market for
hides She could dam the San
Saba river and furnish sufficient
water powerfor our gins and Boi
ler mills and also run a cotton and
woolen factory A cotton and
woolen factory would be supplied
with raw material from all this
great western country She could
open up her vast treasury house of
marble She could organizo o
county fair and exhibit her splen
did products mineral resources
and her fine stock She could in
corporate for Bchool purposes and
establish an institution of learning
in which all her children could be
educated And before all these
things would be half done rail
roads would be rushing here San
Soba has a great future before it
At our past rates of progress our
children will upbraid us for the lit

Bojs on tbe Farm
The Texas Farm and Banch notes
with regret that the state is educa
ting more young men in both law
and medicine than in agriculture
While this condition of things is al
ways to be regretted it should not
be a matter of wonder The condi
tion of agriculture for the past few
years has not been an attractive
one and it is little wonder that
the young men give up the farm
for the office and choose some pro
fession instead of of trying to learn
more about the science of farming
They see on every side men who
have grown old on the farm and
have given up their crops are
mortagaged beforo thoy are plant
ed and they are paying a heavy
interest on the very food they eat
and the clothes they wear True
the condition of things might bo
changed but the young men do not
feel called upon to undergo years
of privation and selfsacrifice in
changing them If the farmers
ever expect to keep the boys on
the farm and make them study
agriculture as a profession they
must first unite in bringing farm
ing to a point where it is pleasant
and profitable instead of a system
of slavery There is no other life
which has such a tendency to run
into one barren unattractive
groove without pleasure in the
present or hope in the future
Abandon the allcotton system
give the boys a chance to do some
thing else besides slaving in the
cotton field thirteen months in the
year for their board and clothes
and owing for them and The
Statesman thinks the number of
boys at the agricultural colleges
and in the fields will by vastly in
creased Austin Statesman

The county is well supplied with
water by the Colorado and 5an
Saba rivers Cherokee and Rich
land creek with ILaii tritmtairles
and by a number of bold springs
Some of these springs are of white
sulphur water and rank high in
their healing properties
The people are engaged in farm
ing and stock raising The land
along Colorado and San Saba riv
ers is susceptible of irrigation
There are deposits of very fine
marble and other buildings stones
in this county some of which by
their proximity to waterpower
could be very profitably worked
The county was organized in
1856 and has an area of 1131

Devoted to the Interests and UpBuilding of San Saba County
Saturday July 2nd perhaps the
largest crowd ever assembled in
San Saba county enjoyed the grand
Alliance Barbecue in the beautiful
grove on the banks of the San Saba
river at the old Barnet crossing
The alliance people had prepared
various amusements for the pleas
ure of the people such as refresh
ments swings dancing speaking
and above all abundance of dinner
The ciowd is variously estimated
from 2000 to 3000 people The
dense shades surroundings the
barbecue grounds afforded splend
id opportunities for the younger
people to hunt some lonely se
quested retreat and reveal to each
other soft sentiments in words
tender and low No doubt many
matches were made and many
sparks which may develop into
great raging flames were started
These may ever feel grateful to
the alliance Others found amuse
ments in tending to children in
fact thera were amusements for
all Some of the older hardened
alliance men and some of the old
set democrats found amusement in
listening to the great expounders
of political questions This speak
ing was away off from the main
crowd The morning was taken
up by Mr E B Allen of Brown
wood He told the people of the
wrongs of the old democrat party
and the good results of the issues
in the Third Party platform He
spoke about the subtreasury free
silver pensions tariff and all lead
ing issues that are now agitating
the minds of the people In ad
dition to all these things it seem
ed to us that he spoke about three
hours Mr Allen is a smooth
easy and fluent speaker and shows
a full acquaintance with all the is
sues His speech was entertain
ing and instructive and well inter
spersed with jokes anecdotes
gags and comic acting At the
close of his speech dinner was an
nounced From the size of the
crowd it did not not seem proba
ble there would be enough to go
around but there was an abun
dance tor everyixxiy alter ran
nerJoe F Brown of Cherokee
delivered a speech in answer to
Mr Allen Mr Brown handled
the issues with good grace He
proved that he was well posted
and familiar with all the issues
His speech it as largely interspers
with sundry jokes while his natu
ral physique sufficiently answered
for comic acting Mr Brown
held the floor for two hours Mc
Means of made an able
reply He was followed by C A
Jamison The whole thing sums
up in this Democrat versus demo
crat agreeing in the main but
slightly differing on minor and nn
important issues The barbecue
was a pronounced success in every
way May the alliance people
prosper and give us another grand
barbecue next year
