Why put off a good thing- until the other fellow gets in ahead of you? Is patriotism at so low an ebb within the precincts of our city Vt&at nothing is to be done to celebraTeT'tUy, Verily, it Jocks ,that way at, present The Rockport Enterprise came out last week very considerably improved. May the improvement continue. The Exterprise claims to have the-'only one-armed printer in the world. Diplomats in France and other countries regard the selection of Washington as the place for hold ing the peace conference, a signal victory for the Japanese. Perhaps so, for the American people gener ally, are ardent sympathizers with the Japs in their struggle with the Russian bear. Corpus Christi will do herself proud on the 4th of July, and quite a number of Brownsville peo ple will help her do the thing right. Our course tliey expect to enjoy the festivities and no one ha$ ever been disappointed ret who went tOj that seaside resort the intention of having a time. with good "4tF N-disposition is. made of the ever-present ticket scalpers in San Antonio, and he continues to ply his vocation, the crowds that an nually visit that cit' during the fair will be very materially diminish ed By reason of the fact that rail roads have sent forth the ultimatum that scalping must cease or no -reduced rates will be given. A eutelemau was going down the street We day when he over took an Irishman, who happened to look back: As he was passing him, he asked Pat if he knew what happened to Lot's ygjfe for looking back'. . - "Np," said Pat."

Fewer Gallons; Wears Longer. Masonic Election. Rio Grande lodge, No. 81, A. F. & A. M., held its regular elec tion of officers last night.

I dropped a pebble in the stream, It sunk for ever from my sight; A moment in the sun's warm beam A diamond sparkled warm and bright, Reflecting far its radiant light. A circle, small indeed a first, Widened e'en 'midst the tempest roar; Until at last it faintly burst, . And vanished on the farther shore. A frown, a scowl, an angry glance, A hasty or unguarded word, A formal bow, a look askance These quicker than a swift-winged bird, Pierce to the heart like two-edged sword; Spreading a baleful, influence wide, They cast amirksome shade and gloom Across life's rough and troubled tide, And reach unto the silent tomb. A word, a look of sympathy, A penny generously bestowed, A simple act of courtesy, A kindly influence shed abroad, Can from the soul lift many a load These angels, deeds, grand and sublime. Like ripples on the restless sea, Sweep o'er the fretful stream of time, And reach into eternity. Paul Clavton. Measuring The Baby. Cross Purposes. Superintendent of the. Public Schools Maxwell of New York was one day showing off his pupils to a crowd of visitors. ' 'Can 3'ou make a Maltese cross?" he asked of a bright-e3Ted boy. "Yes, sir," answered the boy readily. "You see," said the delighted Maxwell, this boy knows how to make a, Maltese cross. Well, to the boy, "make one.-" I can't right here, " replied the puzzled bo'. "Why not?" inquired Maxwell. 'How do you make a Maltese cross, anyway. The boy put his finger in his mouth. "I pull its tail," he said. Den ver Republican. A small child had been promised that if she were very good she should be taken to a hotel with her father and mother. When there some old ladies, with a view to im proving her mind, asked if she were a good little girl, and if she knew where good little girls went to. "Yes," she said; "they go to hotels." j Reflections of a Bachelor. New York Press. The age for being no fool like an old fool is always one year ahead of where you are. A woman considers she is per fectlr dressed for summer when she appears to have on eveirlcss than she has. If she can't find any other reason for doing it a girl will marry a man to make some other girl mad about it. Fewer Gallons; Wears Longer. Notice.

Corpus Christi, Texas We measured the riotous baby Against the cottage wall A lily grew at the threshold. And the boy was just as tall! A royal tiger lily, With spots of purple and gold, And a heart like a jeweled chalice , The fragrant dew to hold. Without, the blackbirds whistled High up in the old roof-trees, And to and fro at the window The red rose rocked her bees; And the wee pink fists of the baby Were never a moment still, Snatching at shine and shadow That danced on. the lattice still. His eyes were wide as blue bells His mouth like a flower unblown Two little bare feet, like funny white mice, Peeped out from his snowj gown; And we thought with a thrill of rapture, That j-et had a touch of pain. When June rolls around with her roses, We'll measure the boy again. Ah me! In a darkened chamber, With the sunshine shut away, Through tears that fell like bitter rain, We measured the boy todajr. And the little bare feet that were dimpled, And sweet as a budding rose, Lay side by side together, In the hush of a long repose. Up from the dainty pillow, White as the risen dawn, The fair little face lay smiling, With the light of heave thereon; And the dear little hands, like rose leaves Dropped from a rose, lay still, Never to snatch at the sunshine ' . That crept to the shrouded sill. We measured the sleeping babj- With ribbons white as snow, For the shining rosewood casket That waited him below, And out of the darkened chamber We went with a childless moan To the height of the sinless angels Our little one had grown. . Australian Journal. Somo Modern Bulkheads. It was recently discovered that the bulkheads in some of England's modern warships are useless to resist sea water pressure. By order of the admiral of the channel fleet the steel walls of all the spirit rooms were shored up and water was pump ed in. Long before the compart ments in several of the ships were full the water tight doors and walls began to give and buckled several inches. Had the rooms been filled with water, as they might have been in the event of collision, and had there been no'shores the walls would inevitably have burst and the other bulkheads gone in turn, with disas trous results. A Redwood Monarch. At Brookdale, Santa Cruz county, Cal.. a fine &pecimen of the sequoia, or redwood tree, was blown over in a recent storm. The tree is estimat ed to be over 330 years old. Ten feet from the, top of the tree and at a distance of 165 feet from the ground was found a hole somewhat less than two ; feet deep. It had once been the nest of a woodpecker. In this hole had grown a sturdy, three stalked huckleberry bush two feet tall. Its roots, extending six feet into the heart of the tree, had absorbed the sap of the redwood. The huckleberry had flourished and borne fruit- , Cutting "Glasc Under Vater. Imagine trying to cut a sheet of glass with a pair of shears! How many cracks would fo'rm!
