GIBSON, Secy. * ♦! ♦ FROM THF FIELD. ♦ ! ♦ ♦ i ♦ ♦♦♦♦♦ -ο- *♦♦♦♦«[ It is related, whether In tradition, book or song, I am not at liberty to state, that when man on the earth appeared the prince of darkness call ed his ministering spirits about his throne and thus addressed the hid eous throng: "The one among you who will go to earth and prompt man to acts nearest in harmony with the discord of hell shall forever be here next in authority to me." No sooner had this decree been deliver ed than every attribute of darkness and sin began to invent such vile thoughts for man as their respective capacities could contrive. Hell for a time almost tenantless was and men had no peace. The con test was as fast and furious as the present conflict between Tom and Bob for the Texas governorship. Drunkenness, gambling, lying of the common brand, theft, burglary, ar son, graft, deceit, robbery, murder, outrages and as they thought, the whole category of crime were report ed by one and another and all but two of the host had returned. It seemed that they had reformed or gotten lost. When hope of their re turn had about fled, one of the two returned with an account of the mis chief wrought by the distruction of woman's virtue. The devil heard him with pleased countenance and at the conclusion of the story of the deceit any lying necessary in the process of so wrecking character was about to grant a place at his right hand for the successful contestant, when the last of his emissaries returned with what seemed at first sight a vory simple contrivance, just an organ of the human body. When he pre sented it to his mmster the waiting host joined in a laugh so discordant and grating that the doors on the hinges creaked. But when the re turned spirit explained that he had brought with him a slanderous ton gue and freely explained its work ings, his master into a deep study went and could not decide whether he or the inventor of seduction was entitled to the seat of honor. It is said that the decision has never been reached as to which was the winner in the content. Each has his partisans and between the factions the hosts are kept in as great tur moil as are terrestrial beings by the eternal agitation of a question I could name. The devil, it seems, can decide at least what are the twin evils while we of earth are meting out punishment for such minor crimes as theft and murder and let ting the slanderer and the seducer, the arch enemies of society, go prac-J tically unpunished. | Leaving Waxahachle on Tuesday morning, I took dinner with J. M. Alsup ou Midlothian 1 and rested a while. Mr. Alsup is a good farmer and takes a lively and intelligent in terest in public affairs. Night coming on just after I had been to M. A. Mc Clelland's peach orchard and had a good cool drink I rounded in at R. B. Reeves' and spent the night. J. A. Roberts, on Midlothian 1 was plant ing June corn, was about finishing I believe forty acres. I found Mr. and Mrs. C. J. Morgan in the field. There was a painter at the house putting on a coat of paint. J. J. Stamper, a Mid lothian business man placed his name on my list. I placed my feet under the table at Mrs. M. T. Young's popular boarding houses and she placed her name oir my list. It is a good place to get fed. F. M. Cren shaw was painting his buggy, that Is he was cleaning it and his daughter was doing the palnt<nf. I met W. T. Mason there and he '.«ill now get the Ki;ter[-rise on No 3. Midlothian. On toward Brittoii I found A. H. Jestis taking his ease and watching the crops grow. He had a pretty good shower a few oays before and crops were looking well. On Midlothian 5 Mrs. W. C. Davis was visiting her I parents at Waxahachle and Mr. D. was not very well. Mrs. J. 8. Bobbitt was visiting her parents, Mr. and Mrs Frank W"1 son at Ike. I batched wi'li J. S. and the ccyg and had a good time. Mr. Bobbitt Is a good far mer and has great faith in the far mers winning In their fight for bet ter cotton prices. I hope they may. At the residence of C. J. Jackson I found two 7 pound boys who moved into the neighborhood on the 13th. At Wyatt I found a protracted meet ing in progr ms vnder the auspices of the Baptist people. ! stopped and heard a sermon by the pastor of the Venus church. There had been sev eral professions and a church or ganized. I took dinner with Mr. and Mrs. C. A. Isbell. T. O. Davenport told me to say that he was hauling hay and It is now said. J. O. Shutlz and family were at home and gave me some nice Elberta peaches. He contemplates making a visit west soon. Ε. N. Davenport was plowing cotton. Year before last he made 73 bales on 75 acrea and last year .27 bales on the same ground. I will give a year's subscription to the Enter prise to the one making the closest estimate for this year on the same 75 acres. It looks well now and is clean. It takes a sub to entitle you to a vote. J. O. Curry and family were at home and renewed for the paper. From there I went back to Midlothian where I met W. A. Wlth erspoon and family on their way out home a mile north and accepted a seat in the surry and the hospitality of the family for the night. Will is a good farmer and a public spirited citizen, and takes great interest in his family and farm. He told me that Midlothian would give a general pic nic on the first Saturday in August and that they hoped to get Charley Barrett, national president of the Farmers' Union as one of the speak ers. On last Saturday morning he took me in the buggy and we went to Ovilla to the picnic where I sup pose 2500 people seemed to be hav ing about as good a time as they generally have. The grove where they have picnics and camp meeting at Ovilla is about the finest in the county. There was plenty for all, a great deal left and lots wasted. I ate dinner with Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Wil son and others. 1 have thought Mrs. John E. Smith was authority on mo lasses custard but I found some there as good and I believe Mrs. Morton was its moulder and builder. The Odd Fellows Widows and Orphans home boys furnished the music. It was good. Mr. Vinson told me Mr. John Laboon had lost a horse he had been working for twelve years. I had to leave at 2 o'clock to catch the train at Sterrett for home so did n\>t get the benefit of the afternoon speaking. S. P. Rice of Dallas and Will Hancock of Waxahachle were both thpre loaded for bear. Mrs. Dr. Nation gave me the price and had me send the paper to her sister, Mrs. Birdie Jackson, at Mosheim, Texas. WILLIE COX. Suints to Assemble.
