Observant Citizen. It's an old bit of bunting, It's only an old colored rag, Vet thousands have fought for its honor And shed their best blood for the flag. This little verse was copied by colonel M. D. Monse-rate, who treasures its sentiment very much. While in the King Edward hotel in Toronto, Canada, this summer he saw the words penned on an old battered British Jack which had been carried through several campaigns by English soldiers. During the civil war colonel Monserrate was color bearer of his regiment, and like all other men who have carried the flag through a rain of bullets, has a high re verence for the symbol of the cause he represents He will have the I verse engrossed and hung up in the headquarters of the Confederate camp here.

Austin, Tex., Oct. 16 Land Commissioner Terrell is just in receipt of a report from his field agent, Sam I. Kellum, who has been engaged in an inspection ot the school lands in Brewster Coun ty, especially with a view of de termining the value of them as a result of the growth of the guaynle shrub on same. Tlic guayule rub ber plauts of Mexico are offering a good price for the shrnb and buy ing as much of it in Texas as pos sible. It is then shipped to Mex ico and manufactured into rubber,, for which there is a great demand Mr. Terrell states that the re port of his agent wa that there was not a great deal of the guayule plant shrub on the school lands in Brewster County, and that he recommended that the price of the lands be not iucreased materially because of the limited quantity of the shrub found on it, that it would not justify an increase. The Commissioner has detailed his chief clerk, J. T. Robison, to make an inspectation of school lands in certain western counties and particularly look into thev amount of guayule plant to be fouud thereon. At present Mr. Robison is in Pecos County. His report is awaited by the Land Com missioner before-taking any action in the matter of increasing ihe. price of the land. A recent report from a western town stated that ranchmen were cutting the guayule. shrub.as fast as.possiblerand marketing it at an income of $6 per ton, which was a very good return. It is suspected that the guayule plant may be cut from ' school lands leased in the western portion of the State with out paying for same to the State. This will also be looked into, as the school fund is entitled to have guayule land classified as timber land, according to the Attorney General, and the timber and gua yule does not go with the land when leased. It is said that denatured alcohol good for many purposes and quite valuable, can be made from the sotol plant, which grows in the greatest profusion on the arid school lands of the West. If such proves to be the case it will be a bonanza to the school fund, as sotol grows as plentiful as the rankest weeds. NEGROES LOSE JOBS' White Girls Prove Better for Cleaner Than Blacks- San Antonio, Texas, Oct. All the negro men car cleaners in the yards of the Galveston, Harrisburg rnd San Antonio railroad at this place, have been discharged and they have been replaced by white girls. The negro foreman was re moved and the white girls are working under a ..white foreman' They are paid exactly the same as the men received. $40 per month, and there has been no trouble in securing a sufficient number. The officials of the road here saj' that the, work is now being done much more quickly and much bet ter than when done by negro men If the experiment contiuues the success it now promises, it is very probable that the negro car clean ears all over the line will be re placed by white girls. Car clean ing is no more difficult than house cleaning, and the pay is much bet ter. Notice. Notice is hereby given that no more shooting will be, allowed be tween the freight and passenger depots along the railroad . track or within range ofhouses. in the city limits. t Geos,- Connor, Chief ot Police.
