The Eagle, 'which has been in course
of preparation for several weeks, has

of The Eagle to praise Its own efforts,
yet we can not but believe that It Is
a creditable effort, and will contribute
no little to the future welfare of
Bryan. The resources of the city and
county are placed before the home
seeker, the manufacturer and Investor,
thereby bringing us In closer touch
with the outside world, and with thoBe
who are seeking new locations.
An effort is made to emphasize the
desirability of Brazos County as a
place to establish a home.jecause of
the fertility of the soil, the cheapness
of the lands, the splendid rural schools
and churches, free rural mall delivery,
neighborhood telephones, plenty of
water and other conveniences and ad
vantages. The advantages of Bryan are shown
In its splendid educational system, its
churches, Its municipally owned pub
lic utilities, Its Industrial enterprises,
its elegant homes, and a comprehen
sive .exposition of its business and
professional firms. The social side of
Bryan Is . also represented, together
with Its lodges fraternal, benevolent,

not Justlfj-the wearing- of (women's)
hats in church." I am much surprised
that you, who profess to be a son of
God, a member of the church of the
Lord Jesus, can dare to advise the
women to disobey the express com
mand of our Lord and King. If you
will read the eleventh chapter" of
I. Corinthians you will see that Paul
begins this chapter with the command,
"Be ye followers of me as I also am
of Christ," and beginning with the
fifth verse be commands that no wom
an sboud pray or prophesy with her
bead uncovered, and if she should do
,so she is disgraced and her head
should be shorn, and he gives the rea
sons for it. The whole of the eleventh,
twelfth, thirteenth and fourteenth
chapters of this epistle are written to
give us directions for the public wor
ship of God, and Paul concludes-with
the words: "If any man think himself
to be a prophet, or spiritual let him
acknowledge that the tilings I write
unto you are the commandments of
the Lord." "Let all things be done
decently and in order."

Sure brother; we have no objec
tion to them keeping their heads scrip
turally covered, but we do most vigor
ously kick at them covering the entire
community. Dear old Paul, when he
was giving that advice, was not look
ing down the ages to the time when
the praying and prophesying ladies
would wear hats as big as the State
of Rhode Island. Red bandanas were
the style In Paul's time.
WHAT THE INTERURBAN EXTEN-
"The people of Bryan little realize
what the interurban and its connec
tion with the Houston and Texas Cen
tral to the west Is going to mean to
the commerce or the city. I drove over
the line from Giddlngs today, and it's
a wonderfully rich, well developed
country, and it will be at your door."
Col. E. B. Cashing.
The above expression from Colonel
Cushing is certainly encouraging and
cheering to the people of Bryan. Col
onel Cushing Is a man not given to
idle statements, and his wide experi
ence gives weight and value to his
The promoters of this extension of
the interurban to the bottom need
every encouragement from our citi
zens. They are doing a great work a
work that will benefit Bryan far more
than we now Imagine. Let every hand
be outheld to them, let every assist-
ance possible be rendered, let every
bonus subscription be paid promptly,
so that this great work can go forward
rapidly and without interruption. '

Secretary of State W. J. Bryan and
Speaker-Champ Clark have buried the
hatchet. The trouble between them
dates from the Baltimore convention,
where Mr. Bryan javelined
Speaker and prevented his nomination
for the Presidency after he had re-
ceived a majority of the votes. Mr.
Bryan In his pipe of peace statement
says "he has always regarded, and
now regards him (Clark) as a good,
clean, progressive Democrat." Mr.
Clark says that "while Colonel Bryan
nor anyone else can correct the in- j
jury done him at Baltimore, still all
personal and selfish considerations
must give way to the duty all Demo-
crats owe the party and the country."

Farmers of Brazos County know
nothing of the water troubles experi
enced by farmers in the dry sections
of the State. It has the Brazos River
on the western boundary, the Nava
sota River on the east, and a number
of large creeks. There Is sufficient
rainfall to keep the tanks well filled,
and good wells can be secured any
where at a shallow depth.
Within four months Bryan will have
an Interurban extending to the Brazos
River, and running down the rich val
