A Beautiful Tribute to the Memory of
Voung John B. Armstrong.
The following beautiful tribute
to young- John B. Armstrong, who
was a few days aero killed bv his
horse on his father's ranch near
Katherine is taken from last week's
Corpus Christi Caller:
Last Saturday morning while
the prairies were all . aglow with
flowers of everv hue. God was mak
ing a Heavenly bouquet, so stoop
ing, He snatched from that prairie
scene one rare flower, a boy with
heart leaves just unfolding, in the
prime of life was called to add to
that Heavenly cluster that had al
ready held one perfect flower, and
one bud from the same little home
If we could see into the great
beyond, ' ' and. see how those heart
leaves add to that bouquet, how
much fresher the perfect flower is,
and how the bud - nestles closer to
the opening flower, we could but
say unougn witn Dowed. neads;
God knew just what he was carry
ing to that better land, when John
B. Armstrong Jr., with a smile
upon his lips, was called to mee

An Appeal to the People of Texas.
We, the undersigned members
of the Senate and House of Repre
sentatives, of the 29th Legislature,
having been appointed by virtue of
a resolution passed at the Called
Session on May 10th, 1'905, to for
mulate an appeal to the people of
Texas in behalf and for the relief
of Captain W. P. McNeill, of
Georgetown, Texas, do hereby set
forth for your consideration the
As many thousands! of the people
of Texas, as well as of the United
States, know, Captain McNeill was
practically in full charge and con
trol of the Texas Agricultural Ex
hibit at the World's Fair at St
Louis, Missouri, aud gave his
whole time and attention to the
same during said Fair, being al
ways courteous and attentive to all
ladies and visitors from other States
and especially to those from this
State, and also being well posted
on the resources and great prospects
and possibilities of Texas, he has
undoubtedly been instrumental in
bringing many home-seekers and
investors to this State- His excel
lent work there has been of incal
culable benefit to Texas, yet, not
withstanding all this, Captain Mc
Neill has never been fully paid for
his valuable services rendered hi
behalf of this State; there being
now a balance due him in the sum
of $444.00, and as no appropriation
was made by the Legislature to
place an exhibit at the . St. Louis
World's Fair none can now be
lawfully made to remunerate Cap
tain McNeill for the services thus
Therefore, we the committee ap
pointed for this purpose, appeal to
the people of Texas through the
Daily Press, which, has so kindly
tendered its assistance and co-
upcittLiuu in uijs matter, to con
tribute toward raising the funds
necessary to pay this amount ; so
justly due. . -
Captain McNeill, is a true and
worthy Texan, a poor man finan
cially, but rich in the esteem of his
fellow citizens, and we, feel assured
that the people of this great State
will not overlook this magnificent
opportunity, thus offered to show
forth their benevolent and patriotic
spirit by contributing voluntarily
to this worthv cause.
ihe committee has authorized
Hon. F. D. Love of Georgetown,
Texas, to act as Treasurer, and re
commends that all contributions be
forwarded to him,, and earnestly
requests all weekly and semi-weekly
newspapers to copy this appeal.

before the senate:
Hon. George D. Neal, President

Brown wood, Texas, May 11.
Whereas, It has come to the
knowledge of the Texas Press as
sociation in- convention, assembled

Whereas, We believe that such
a law would not oe to tne oest
interest of the State and unjust to
many worthy printing establish
ments; therefore be it
Resolved, That we earnestly

and house of representatives to an
amendment to said bill that will
allow each county to print its own

Contract Let For Building Gulf Coast
Line Into Galveston Work Will Be
Not Always A Paper's Opinion.
Everything in a newspaper is
not necessarily the sentiment of
the editor. He often publishes
matter as news, upon which he
does not express an opinion. An
item may be distasteful to the
editor, yet he does not express an
opinion; nevertheless, it is news,
and he publishes it for others to
talk about, and to keep them post
ed upon what is going on. To
make a newspaper, the editor must
put iu his paper matter that does
not suit some of his readers, al
though it may be true. It niay be
stuff that he does not like, -but it
is news, and he must publish it.
If an editor sees fit to express an
opinion, ne generally expresses it
in his editorial columns, or he may
comment upon an article, placing
his comment immediatelv after
the article commented upon. An
editor does not dare try to please
everybody it can not be done.
The editor, to make a success of a
newspaper, must give all the news
as near as he can, without trying
to please anybody.

Vice President and General Man
ager Jeff N. Miller and General
Attorney Duval West of the Gulf
Coast Line arrived in Houston
last night from Galveston, where
they spent yesterday.
While in Galveston the gentle
men held a conference with the
.commissioners and arranged the de
tails for the entrance of the line
into the city.
Mr. P. M. Johnston, one of the
firm of Johcston Bros.,, general
railroad contractors, was in the
city last night and had a conference
with Mr. Miller for the purpose of
closing the contract for the build
ing of the road from a point about
two miles from Alvin into Galves
ton. It is understood that the work
will be prosecuted with diligence
and that the Gulf Coast Line will
be into Galveston over its own
rails within the next twelvemonths.
It is desirous of locating, if pos
sible, J. Longhran. He is a young
man about 30 years of age, tall,
slim and quiet in his manner, a
stenographer and typewriter by
profession and it is asserted that
he left Galveston for Mexico in.
Should any of the readers of
The Herald know of the location
of this young man, please be kind
enough to advise the United States
Consul, at Matamoros, Mexico.
The information is wanted for
private reasons and shall be re
garded as confidential. He is not
guilty of any misdemeanor or
News was received here this week
that Alvin has failed to secure the
crossing of the St. L , B. & M. at
that point, which was so much de
sired. The Gulf Coast Line has
been surveyed it is said to cross the
Santa Fe about two miles further
east of there.
The work of putting in masonry
piers for the steel span over the
Nueces near Calvin, for the St. L .
B. & M., is in progress again, af
ter the work being delayed for
about two weeks on account of
high water. When completed the
bridge will be one of the most sub
stantial in Texas.
Mr. Ben L. Allen, president en
gineer of the St. L., B. & M.,
who has been located at Nueces -town
for the past eight months
completed his labors in this section
this week and with his family left
here Wednesday for a several
months visit to the north, includ
ing Kansas and Missouri. C. C.
Bread and Dough.
When A Man's Poor.
A man is poor when he has lost
the confidence of friends, when
people who are nearest to him do
not believe him when his character
is honey-combed by deceit, punctur-
when he makes money at the ex
pense of his character, when prin
ciple does not stand cleai? cut,
supreme in his ideas. When this
is ciouaea ne is m danger of the
worst kind of poverty. To be in
the poor house is not necessarily
to be poor. If you have maintain
ed your integrity, if your character
stands foursquare to the world, ifj
you have never bent the knee
A young man who had not been
many years married carefully laid
down a piece of bread, the other
night, and said to his wife: "I
wish you could make such bread
as mother used to make." The
young wife smiled, and remarked
in a voice that did not tremble;
"Well, John, I wish you could
make the dough that father used
Uo make-" A hush as vilRnt
death fell so suddenlythat John
almost lost his bretOi, and the

come up for discusjgonjsince.
