Childhood and Youth.
The following: essay was read by
Mrs. Joe T. Bruce, of Forreston, at
the Children's Day exercises recent
ly held there:
'Tis during the happy days of
youth that habits are formed, asso
ciates chosen and in truth the foun
dation fur the dark and dreary, or
the bright and dazzling future is
laid alike for all.
A great deal depends upon the
early train in κ of the young and
tender mind of a child, that he may
euter youth with a firm step, a ftx
(■dne>< of purpose and a resolution
to shun all evil desires.
Hov. many have entered youth
with those resolutions in view.
Horn- ha\ e, and some aimed to,
but there are too many little sins
that overpovvi r them, and lead them
into greater evils, and at last mak<
them m:' rattle. But children; God
*ee> ι \ ery thing we do; nothing is
aiil from him, so we should strive

as do. So let us walk in Christ's
steps and be Christlike.
Then each one would not be
ashamed for Christ to see our daily

such a thing as a leap In the dark,
but not near so many of these as
there are blind leaps. Thus the
person refuses to look, or neglects
So look. Looking, thinking seri
ously, considering before acting or
speaking is but the exercising of
Heat reason God gave man. Man
iishonors his God and himself
when he fails to call into active
employment this highest; and most
ennobling faculty. This is true of
Ihe young as well as the old.
Folly is no more excusable in
youth than in old age. Now to the
young again, there are many who
tries to get away from God, but
they always run into trouble.
Some are found in the vile drunken
qten, struck down to death with no
friend near to save, and there they
lav waiting to fill a sad drunkard's
^rave. Thus does this bad habit
sweep the smile from childhood's
smrny brow. So let us consider
vwaH the value of a soul. Think of
thf- countless ages of eternity, weigh
wer'f <vkit opportunities and then with
aur eyes fixed heavenward, press
forward in the great work of love

leave his parental roof, the home
where his childhood and youthful
days were spent in sunshine and
happiness, for the broad field of la

exertions. And we all know by ex
perience to prepare in the balmy
days of spring and summer, for the
Id bleak winds of an approaching
winter. So it is well to prepare in

Thus youth is the time to serve the

manhood. Therefore we should tyn

allotted unto us.

The Elks' Street Fair.
Thursday and Friday I spent at
tending the Elke' street fair at En
nls. This Is the second year they
have held a carnival of this kind at
Ennis and both entertainments have
proven satisfactory from a business
standpoint. And then the amuse
ments furnished to the people of the
city and surrounding country was
greatly enjoyed.
Tents and awnings were stretched
along nearly the entire length of
Main street and these were occu
pied by red lemonade stands, snake
eaters and other entertainments.
Sideshows were numerous and after
I had ridden on the flying jenny I
had my fortune told and head phre
nologized and tanked up on red lem
omade. Then I proceeded to see
who was there and it was a big
crowd. The citizens of Ennis and
the surrounding country were in at
tendance in large numbers. On ac
count of the long drouth the display
of farm products was not so large,
but onions, potatoes and a few sam
ples of corn were splendid.
Stalls were erected in the center
of one of the streets and Friday
morning they were filled with Dur
ham and Jersey cows and bulls,
mares and colts, driving and saddle
horses, und pigs. In the afternoon
a committee inspected this exhibi
tion of stock and awarded blue rib
bons and premiums. Arch Moore,
who owns a farm and ranch one
mile eat>t of Ennis, had on exhibi
tion his herd of five Durham heifers
and one bull. This herd was pur
chased in Kentucky two years ago
by Mr. Moore at fancy prices. They
are registered and are beauties.
They were dehorned when calves
and they attracted quite a good deal
of attention and Mr. Moore is in- j
deed proud of them. He offered a
special premium of $20.00, hoping!
thereby to have some of the other
registered Jersey herds in Ellis
county to compete with his. He is |
very anxious to see some of the oth-j
er herds in the county and when I !
suggested that a cattle show be
pulled off in Waxahachie some time
this fall he was delighted with the
idea and said rather than miss it he
would ship Ins herd over here. Mr. j
Garrison Clements of Eyrie, i'. E. ]
Rape of Midlothian and Dr. Sims
of 15oz, are all possessors of fine ί
herds of Durhams. Charley Graves [
of Rockett and J. A. Mulkey of En
nis both own registered Jerseys, j
and with the many good cows [
around Waxahachie and in other
parts of the county a fine show I
j could be given. I sincerely hope it)
can be pulled off here some time this I
fall, probably about the first Mon-1
day in October.

Ennis. A larsre pavilion had been
erected ill the street uear the depot
and from this place the Ennis band
and a one-legged trapeze performer
entertained the crowd.
D. W. Birchfleld, a brother-in-law
of Rev. G. W. Owens, the big lum
ber man, who is interested in and is
manager of the yard at Ennis, came
from the sand jacks of a south Tex
as county, where I also roosted for
several years, and with him and his
pleasant family I stopped while tak
ing in the sights of the Ennis fair.
The following named gentlemen
gave me their names while I was
there to go with us on our big ex
cursion to Bryan: W. H. Giles,
Bud Lightsey, W. R. Lancaster, J.
M. Burkhead, T. J. Miles, .C O.
Tolleson, J. E. Parker, and Arch
Moore. Innocence Aakoad.
And Important Arrest.
Last night Sheriff G. C. 8weatt re
turned from Giles county, Tenn.,
bringing with him Aaron Nelson,
colored, who is wanted in the court
here to answer to a charge of rape.
Nelson was arrestep on an indict
ment found by the grand jury, hie
alleged victim being a girl under
fourteen years of age. Nelson lias
b«en in Ellis county about eight
years, coming here from Giles coun
ty. Hf left the country last Decem
ber and when the Indictment was
placed in the hands of the sheriff he
♦tad little difficulty in locating Nel
son at his old home in Pulaski. He
was arrested by the Giles county
sheriff and held until Sheriff Sweatt
reached there. Nelson claims to be
a Hardshell Baptist preacher and
stoutly denies the charge that is
! pending against him. However, he
says that it was foreordained and
predestined that this trouble was
to be visited upon him. The case
against him looks a little ugly and a
snort term in the pen may be only
; carrying out another part of the
plan of predestination.
