Reports yesterday received from Knox
and Garza counties say stock in neither
locality have su Cared much this winter

severe known in the state for years At
the latter place the mercury went down

Captain C W McGehee a wellknown
horse and mule dealer of Weatherford
was In Fort Worth last evening He says
last week he sent a carload of horses to
Illinois and he expects a great deal of the
trade in those animals in Texas this year
will come from that section though the
business done will not be of so great vol
ume as it was last year
Captain McGehee says cattle in Parker
county are in firstrate shape and feeding
stock in North Texas so far as he
lias learned are doing first rate notwith
standing rumors of a contrary nature
which have been in circulation lately
Said Colonel W C Young yesterday
The bulk of the trade In Texas cattle this
year for stocking ranges Is going to come
from the Indian Territory I think as
soon as the time is ripe and the range
owners have made preparations there
will be a big demand for cattle to go
there There will be few cattle wanted
for northwestern ranges There is a
matter of a dollar or two per head on
the price at which cattle are held
and that at which the ouyer wants to pur
chase When this difference has been
overcome as it will soon there will be
quite a trade spring up
The farmer should as nearly as possi
ble produce everything necessary for the
sustenance of life if in addition to this
he can manage to market his products in
the most concentrated form his success
Is assured There can be no doubt that
the stock farmer most nearly compiles
Vlth these conditions of greatest sccess
He owns horses cattle and sheep which
inrnish him meat and labor His pasture
sustains them daring the greater part of
the year without effort and the food nec
essary to keep them during the winter
months he raises on his farm His fields
supply him with corn and wheat his gar
den and orchard with fruit and vegeta
bles The hardest times will not find him
Without the necessaries of lifeand pros
perous years will yield him large returns
The happiest countries on the globe are
those where stock farming is practiced
Mr T T D Andrews agent of the
Bureau of Animal Industry was seen last
evening at the Ellis Mr Andrews had
just returned from St Louis and being
asked for news ot Interest to stockmen
said the reports he had received from the
northwest were to the effect that stock
had not suffered there to anv great extent
so far In Montana particularly they
lad been leniently dealt with and he did
cot think the losses there were ot suf
ficient importance to deter the rangemen
from stocking with Texas cattle
Mr Andrews was asked where
all the cattle were coming
from that were being nnloaded on the
Chicago market the number ot such be
ing unusually great for the time ot year
They come from the small stock farms
of Nebraska Wisconsin Kansas and
other nothern states
Have these shipments any significance
to the Texas stockmen
I sbonld say so If these cattle are
slaughtered now they will be so many
less to compete with when the Texan be
gins to ship his stock to the market
A Frisco N M correspondent ota
western newspaper says Jess Pitts
lias made a contract with Messrs Young
Hood Hubbard and Graham of Ameri
can Valley to catch wild cattle in the
mountains ot which there is a supera
bundance Jess is an excellent hand to
wield the lasso There are old moose herds
In the mountains adjacent to the Amer
ican Valley who have evaded all previous
attemptsat capture yet we Incline to the
opinion that many of them will sucenmb
to Flits lasso or vacate the flats The
wild cattle in these mountains are a per
fect nuisance to the cattlemen of that re
gion and If all men who have
cattle there would join to
gether and make on Indiscriminate
killing of them it would be a good thing
for all concerned Owing to the lay of
the country and its denseness it is next
to impoEslble to get them out without
killing them It one catches one and
brands It the chances are he will never port
iee it again There are cattle in these
mountains ten or twelve years old with
on k mark or brand on them and instead
of diminishing are increasing every
year GenUexaVQe get with them and
in the course of a few months
are as wild as the original ones The
only remedy for this evil is to remove the
cause in other words annihilate the en
tire herd of wild cattle But even to do
this it will require experts and not law
yers doctors and railroad men When
one starts after those wild cattle he wants
to have his life Insured We have made
it a practice for the last five years every
spring or fall and sometimes In both of
leaving a shirt sleeve a vest back a coat
collar and sometimes a piece of flesh to
dry and wither on the stiff cedar limbs

Major there is a rumor to the effect
that the North Fort Worth City Company
gave vour road a bond that a bridge

no such agreement was ever made by any
person or corporation with the St Louis

Huffman and Byers made us straight
deeds of donation to the land we own on

Word was received by Secretary Sellers
yesterday afternoon that the charter was

certain localities with a view of selecting
a site for the mill The only thing
definitely determined is that the mill will
be erected on the Trinity at some point

with Mr Jnvenet yesterday that gentle
man said
We want people to save their rags and
old papers The Fort Worth paper mill
will buy them
We want farmers to save their oat
straw wheat straw their corn stalks and
even their corn cobs The Fort Worth
paper mill will pay for them
We want the scouring mills to save
their debris and refuse The Fort Worth
paper mill will buy them
You can say that like Paris France
Fort Worth will soon have her own rag

Tho Strike and tho Sugar Planters The
Tariff on Sngar
A representative of The Gazette had
the pleasure of meeting Major J C Has
kell ot New Iberia La largely interested
In salt mining who with Colonel E W
Taylor was having a social talk in the
rotunda of the Ellis house Desiring to
learn something of the Pelican state the
scribe asked him about the late strike and
Its effects upon the sugar crop
Major Haskell replied We had a
tad time during that trouble no doubt
The sugar crop was enormous planters
made at least onethird more than
the most sanguine expected and the
interruption to the work of grindi g bn
tailed an enormous loss In oup salt
ever and while the lo3s has been
still the planters have done well
To the Editor of the Gazotte
Said the reporter What Is the polit
ical outlook In your state Do you
think the tariff question w 11 attract any
of the sugar planters to the Republican
Said Major Haskell No I think not
The planters are all Democrats and they
dare not desert thei colors The Re
publicans have nominated Warmoth for
governor and his election would mean
disaster The sugar men would regard
bis defeat a greater victory than any
sugar tariff Besides this every sensible
man knows that the abolition ot the tariff
is merely a question of time It may
not come in a summary or radical shape
but every one knows that it is coming
and are prepared for it
What do you think of the Internal
revenue asked the reporter
Said Major Haskell I believe the
tariff on wool and tobacco must go

On the
fjj Rxamtnntlon of Toaohers
Itis the unbiased opinion of all who are
nijt literary cranks that there is entirely too
much red tape exhibited in the execution
oI te public school law of Texasand that
thff tft Msfmode of examining teachers
so far from being a fair test of the ability
or scholarship ot the applicants is noth
ing more or less than a conglomerated
mess of useless platitudes and consum
mate pedagoglsm We regret to say itbut
it is a notorious fact that there Is more
absolute humbuggery ard deception in
the modern mode of teaching than enough
Now inasmuch as the other professions
all have their mummery and con
sequent humbusgery it is unrea
sonable to suppose that the profession
of teaching should lag behind the
others in the mad race for profit and dis
tinction and hence it is that in these
modern days there is quite as much de
ception and nonsense In the modes of
teaching as is exhibited by the other pro
fessions In their ordinary role ot duty or
business It is a lamentable fact that
literature has its cranks as well as the
other professions and in no position do
they show off their vanity and pedagog
lsm more so than when unfortunately ap
pointed on examining boards
Man frail man
Clothed with a little brief authority
Flays such f anastlo tricks before high heaven
As make the angels weep
The writer once attended an examina
tion where among other fool questions
the following was propounded viz
Where is tho horned horse found
Strange as this may appear it is trne to
the letter
In the Educational Journal among
the questions tor the September examina
tion occurs the following Ten apples
divided between five boys which is the
concrete and which is the abstract
Now will some kind literary crank be
obliging enough to inform the world
what the superfluous terms concrete and
abstract have to do with the solution of
the question
Again in conducting examinations In
mathematics instead of confining them
selves to the essential rules and which
are the only ones absolutely required in
business transactions or in after life the
majority of questions pnt are no more or
less than a foolish collection of arithme
tical enigmas or pnzzles
As the public school terms are short
and as the most of the pupils have but a
brief time to devote to their studies It
seems as If they should be required to
study nothing but what would be actually
ot service in after life As It Is thou
sands of students have wasted their time
and opportunities In solving nonsensical
problems which are of no practical use
whatever as they discover to their sorrow
when too late
In examining teachers therefore in
our humble opinion they should be re
quired to have a fair knowledge of bIUjubI
ness forms as well as a complete kno wj dge
of all business rules They should pos
sess themselves and exact it ofjth eir
students not merely a theoretica baVa
practical knowledge of grammarSge6
graphy history composition and Ses
manshlp s fi
From north south east arldvwesi corags
the warning voice to discard tie practise
of confining students to the BClenc Of
numbers to the neglect of all othefe fsful
studies It is nothing nncommon to meet
with students nowadays who will solve
you any problem in the arithmetic and
yet who cannot for the life of them
make the simplest kind ot bnsiness calcu
lation Again they will repeat the rules
ot grammar glibly and at the same time
could not write ten sentences correctly if
their lives depended on the performance
Never having been made to study what
was useful many qnit school with no
more knowledge of business or the busi
ness transactions ot everyday life than if
they never saw the inside ol a school

Charles Teller captain of the Missouri
Pacific is reported as saying
Yes we choked her up There was a
channel about fifty yards wido and I went
np with the Missouri and Captain Joe
Tellar took the Pacific up and we laid
oroadslde ot the channel That stopped
the fine Ice and as It was a cold night it
soon closed the opening We did it sim
1 ply to protect ourselves If the boats
sUgjrtfn s will not come down and help
keep thls throat clear we will have to stop
it up and let them take their chances
The statements of other river men In
the vicinity confirmed those made by
Captain Tellar and while it is proudly
admitted that the river wa deliberately
gorged it was for selfprotection
The case is simply this said one
if I can work my way up through the
ice and make 10000 by it but smashing
another boat by starting the ice down on
it I have a right to do it That Is ma
