Tho South complains of legisla
tion favoring tho North Tis Inn
therenre some just treids firi
these complaints Thi
Ir ishitioivthcse just ground nnd
those complaints nil exist o lorg
as the South continue to produce
raw material und ship it to north
ern factories nud then buy the
same back again as manufactured
goods and by this operation the
south paying freights both ways
sufficient profits to cover the ex
penses of manufacturing and inad
ditou giving the manufacturers a
handsome profit besides Texas
does tnis with her cotton and wool
luToias to supply the TJnited
States with these articles Texas
buys corn from tho north yet sho
can raise as much corn to the aero
as any state in tho Union Texas
buys flour from the north yet her
wheat Inads equal tho finest
Whonii child is born it is wrap
ped in fianol made in the north
from wool shipped from tho south
it is placed in a cradle the cotton
clothing of which was made in the
north from cotton shipped from
tho south Tho child eats meat
brought from tho north from hogs
raised in tbe south that meat is
fried in northern lard taken from
southern hogs That meat is cook
ed on a stove made in the north
when there is onongh iron in tho
south to make stoves for tbe world
All the tools and implements the
child works with were made in the
north All tho toys articles of
amusement buggies musical in
struments were made in the north
When that child has lived to old
age he sees that the food ho bus
eaten the clothes he has worn the
tools implements and machinery
be has used through life have all
been the products of northern fac
tories the raw material being pro
duced in the south he feels some
what ashamed perhaps and gives
up the ghost then he is carried to
the grave in a carriage made in tho
northJiis grave is dqg ith tools
mads in the north and his tomb
stone came from the north Any
and all of these things exist abun
dantly in tho south So long as
the south leaves her industries un
developed and in their primitive
state so long as the south remains
dependent upon the north for man
ufactured articles sho will have
grounds to complain The south
should develop her resources es
tablish her factories Manufacture
her raw materials produce the nec
essaries of life and thus be inde
pendent of tho north By doing
this tho north would not get so
much raw material The pride of
the south should prompt her ac
tions in these matters

Had you ever thought of tho
lovely situation of San Saba in
the heart of one of the finest agri
cultural and stockraising counties
in tho west abundance of fresh
pure water a world of the finest
marble of all grades and varieties
just hemmed in by all tho natur
al advantages that the heart of the
you over looked nt the town as it
is now and then tried to imagine
what it would be if we could get a
railroad And then just think it
is only 17 miles to the Santa Fe
If the several churches would
pnt competent ministers in their
pulpits and if these ministers
would preach morality and relig
ion from a christian standpoint
and in an attractive way thoy
would not have so much trouble
wrestling with the Sundnr laws
But when ministers get up from a
plaintive prayer nnd pout forth
spleen and bile from a poiooned
heart and make frantic jestures
and bellow and blato like a steam
boat whistle in an hours effort to
preach an audience into hall then
close with a the minutes prayer
praying them out again they will
need stronger backing than tho
high hand of the law to force tho
people to adopt thair views
