The city pocketbook has paid out
some two or three thousand dollars
to grade the little hill upon Magnolia
street in a radius of about two blocks
and a nice job has been done enab
ling the people to establish grade
lines for sidewalks and to finish off
nice terraces etc The work was ex
pensive to the city and the people
benefited should show their apprecia
tion And the best way to show their
appreciation would be to come across
now and pay out of their own pockets
for enough gravel to pave that part
of the street and make a demonstra
tion of what can be done with gravel
and a heavy roller This would be a
good move and would be valuable as
an illustration of what can be done
with our clay streets
The present effort to reform the
Texas prison system should meet with
no opposition because it is a matter
ofrecord that our prison management
has not been in keeping with the
times The Herald has contended for
a long time that the state has no
right to trade on the convicts time
and labor The prison should be made
selfsustaining and the men confined
therein should be given such advan
tages and treatment as will tend to
make them hetter men This paper

Any erroneous reflection upon the character standing or reputation of any
person firm or corporation which may appear In the columns of The Herald
will be gladlycorrected upon It being brought to attention of the publishers
who violate the law in one instance
are in no sense criminals The man
who in a moment of passion commits
an offense against the state is not to
be classed with the criminal who de
liberately commits crime And this
fact should be recognized in the prison
rules The whipping of prisoners
should not be tolerated and the short
term men should be placed on the pub
lic roads
The fight on at Austin just now re
garding the responsibility of a rail
road as to its debts is creating a great
deal of interest here and many com
ments are heard as to the merits of
the bill The Herald is persuaded
that the people generally think the
law should be passed People who
have furnished supplies to the road or
who have other just claims against
the road are certainly entitled to pro
tection The outcome of the matter
will be watched with interest as
means quite a sum to the people
this section
In a general way every one doubt
less realizes what intensified farming
means but when the matter is figured
out In actual results there is cause
for astonishment
A Missouri man has been figuring
on what an additional bushel of corn
to the acre in that state would mean
and finds that in a single year it
would build a fine state capitol He
says according to the Kansas City
Do you know that one more bushel
of corn an acre figuring corn at sev
entyfive cents a bushel would pro
vide the money to build for Missouri
one of the finest state capitols in the
nation And more than this there
would be enough money left after
building the capitol to support the
state university two years
This corn man makes his state
ment good by the figures Eight mil
lion acres of tasseled waving corn is
a part of Missouris contribution to
the muscle and wealth of nations
Only a part mind you Wheat and
oats and hay and garden truck and
the minerals down in the innards
of that good land are other resources
in Missouris treasure chest
Now how about the unimproved
toads and a rundown capitol and a
university on short rations all of
which indicate a fear of investing pub
lic revenues for public good
When one comes to look the Mls
suri corn and wheat full in the face
one realizes how ridiculous it is to
begrudge those improvements of civi
lization which make a sure market for
the wheat and the corn and their
sister things In those good old days
when there were no taxes and very
few people except red Indians there
was precious little corn and what
there was went for coonskins Good
roads good buildings culture and edu
cation and plenty of public revenue
mean more people more homes a bet
ter standard of living for every one
And that means more wheat and corn
and cattle and hogs and steadier bet
ter prices for it all
No one expects the cheerful message
of the Columbia corn man to work a
miracle in the human nature of the
farmers No one expects the sturdy
agriculturists to bow their backs to
the plow just to get that extra bushel
to the acre and give it to the state
But one does believe that the day is
passing when the twobyfour court
house politicians can make the farm
ers believe that the most important
thing under salvation is to make taxes
low One does believe that from Mis
souris great horn of plenty enough
seeds of revenue will be distributed
to help fill up some more cornucopias
of state wealth
But listen again to the corn man
The corn acreage in Missouri is
about eight million acres The aver
age crop for the past ten years has
been in round numbers 202 million
bushels If a man could husk and
crib fifty bushels a day and work
three hundred days in the year when
lie husked the last ear of corn he
would be just 13500 years older than
when he began the job
Mrs Jack Cudaliy has been granted
a full divorce and everybody seems
happy unless she goes on the stage
