OWXBÏ - - City Editor j (Residence Phone, Bell No. 289.) ι Don't forget the great benefit to ι be derived from drinking water from Waxahachie's hot'mineral well. In consideration *of the heavy ex penditures for improvements in Waxahachie the Katy railroad ought, to be exempted from the payment of their taxes. Yes, I've had the 'grip, have the ι grip, and expect to continue to have i It until it gets good and ready to quit. I would like to say just a few words concerning it but can't do it jialf justice without making a repu tation for profanity that I do not care to have. But I will say that It's » the derndest hardest thing to have and keep cheerful under that ever I have tackled.-—Honham News. The Globe-Democrat, republican, says: "Senator Culberson's political friends state that he presents many strong points of contrast with his colleague, Senator Bailey. If this un likeness Is necessary to a presiden tial boom for Culberson, there will be no trouble in Texas as well as in Ohio.'' Texas has recognized the dif ference between her two senators, but the trouble is all in Washington. Commenting on the source of rev enue for democratic campaign ex penses in 1896 the St. Ixrnis Globe Democrat says: "It is said that in 1896, the year of his first presiden tial campaign, Mr. Bryan's commit tee received $2S8,000 from silver raine owners and producers .No one has ever doubted that the silver bar ons contributed freely to the demo cratic war chest, for the election of Bryan meant a vast profit for them." Admitting that the silver barons contributed for the reasons given by the republican contemporary, is it not just as true that Standard Oil and life insurance and other get rlch-quick grafts contributed to the republican slush fund for a like rea son'' And does the Globe-Democrat or any other honest republican doubt that those heavy contributors to republican success realized well on their investment?

Mr Itry ati madr no such statement. HI» poult Ion was plearly described In η statement printed In The Common er of Novemlipr Ι V That position Is well told by this extract from the N'ovpmber 15 statement: "Mr Bryan will not ask for or seek a nomination; and he will not assume to decide the question of his availability. He has been so amply recompensed by his party for what he has done and for what he has en deavored to do that he cannot claim I a nomination as a reward; neither should his ambition be considered, [ for he has had honors enough from his party to satisfy any reasonable I ambition Thp only qnestlo^ lhat. j ought to weigh with the ijfrty is ! whether the party can be strengthen ed and aicjed more by his* nomina tion than by the nomination of some one else. If he can serve the party ! by being its candidate, he will ac cept the commission, and make the best fight he can. If. however, the choice falls upon another, he will not be disappointed or disgruntled. His availability Is a question to be decided not by him. not by a few leaders, not even by the leading newspapers that call themselves democratic, but by the voters of the party, and to them he intrusts the decision of the question—they are the supreme eourt in all matters concerning candidates, as they are In all matters concerning the plat form." It may be added that Mr. Bryan does not regard the plutocratic newspapers that have habitually mis represented him as being qualified to speak even for a minority of democrats. Those newspapers speak for "the system." The rank and file of the democratic party will shape the party's course at Denver. It is not to be expected that the program adopted in the Interests of the gen eral public will meet with the ap proval of those from whose imposi ! tions the public is even now seeking relief.—The Commoner. I The Fort Worth Record says: j About the only merit the Aldrich I bill possesses is that which was in ! stilled into It by Senator Bailey." Yes, Senator Aldrich and Senator Bailey apparently work well togeth er. This is not the first time the ju nior senator from Texas has put "democratic construction" on Al drich measures in order that they might prove acceptable to democrat ic members. Speaking of bargain counter snaps, the Fort Worth Record re cites this fact; "A Missouri woman who paid $10 for a husband awaken ed the other morning to find that her purchase had disappeared along with $250 in cash and various and sundry diamonds. Bargain counter purchas es are not always bargains." That was really more than could rightly have been expected of a ten-dollar husband. About the best evidence that President Roosevelt, in his latest message to congress, hit "the oppo sition" in a tender spot, is the howl of that would-be smart man. Chan cellor Day. There may be no law against it, but the swapping of places at the state pie counter down at Austin is naturally attracting some attention. After all, John Temple Graves may not have been so entirely out of reason in his comment on Mr. Roose velt's democracy. Don't blame any one but yourself if you are not a qualified voter. You had plenty of advice, whether you took it or not. Λ («real Institution. Here are some improvements that were made at Buckner's Orphans' Home last year: An artesian well was sunk 2325 feet, and made safe by an eight inch casing, followed by a six inch. The estimated capacity is 250,000 gal lons per day, and the total cost was $13,000. Two new cottages were added to the village of cottage homes for the aged. The children's hospital was re lieved of the annex department and the latter has been domiciled in a splendid two story building in the city, on ground belonging to the home, and has been fairly well fur nished. Six steam dry rooms have been added to the laundry. A twelve acre woods pasture has been enclosed in a hog proof fence on the stock farm, and several hun dred panels made on different parts of the domain. A dairy barn for thirty milk cows is now nearing completion, with ca pacity for hay and other feed stuffs. Several cows, a small herd of fine angora goats, and three fine regis tered hogs have been added to the stock farm. A car load of cattle was given ill and around San Antonio. The exca vation has been made for the chap el and school building and 650,000 ι brick have been bought, and are now i on the ground. Ail interesting ser : vice will be held at the First Bap ! tist church Sunday morning. Any 1 one who would like to know more about this institution is" cordially*ln vited to be present.
