The late "reform" wave which lias engulfed our sister county of Starr has succeeded in "reform ing" chauging from a human form to the form of dust five men aud in deforming two others. Daily mid hourly on our streets may be heard embryo "reformers" who one of these sunny days will per iance take upon themselves the task of liberating our poor, down trodden, long-suffering people, and of furnishing themselves, together with the high and noble ideals foJ which they stand, as saviours for their dear people. No doubt their ideals are good and pure and dis interested, and that they would be willing to make of their idle time a total waste in order to bring light to their benighed and befogged brethren of the community, and would perhaps condescend to take charge of the offices of the county and country as a means of demon strating the disinterestedness of their motives. We reiterate, that for pure, lofty, disinterested mo tives, the country has yet to see' their fellows, but such patriotism on the part of the highminded few auust, in all reason, have-'a feeble reflection in the minds and actions of the masses. We, the masses, tnrn our eyes to them in their lofty places, with thanks and ad miration little short of reverence, but in the spirit of patriotism no, -of regard for them refuse to ask so mucli of them, refuse, even in our gieat need, to accept such a sacrifice at their hands. In some way yet a while longer will we worn" along under existing condi tion and bear the weary load rath - r than accept of them their noble rJir. of reform so disinterestedly "cred . iu only some of our large land wn.rs would consent to part with avc:i a small portion of their hold ings at reasonable prices to actual settlers, Brownsville would have cause to rise up and call them blessed. Prospectors grow weary of looking for land in small tracts near this place. The land looks good to them; the climate is all that could be desired; the abund ance of fresh water at hand in the Rio Grande offers that essential element for planting in this sec- tion; but there are no small farms offered for sale near here; and after vainly looking for such, they turn their steps towards other localities where the enterprising owners are welcoming the small farmer and of- fering him a foothold at reasonable prices land that is already cleared and provided with irrigation. One trust appears to have come to time for fear of the any new law, but the old anti-trust . legislation which has been on There may , . , . , 4.1 De dui lew peupie wuu h.uu iuui. . ' ! is a Licorice Trust, an octopus. r . j which has its tentacles fasteued on j . , , , r 1 the independent tobacco manufac-, , - , turers, whom it charged 20 per ' , . . ,. . cent higher prices for licorice than . . , , , . t ' 1 it charged the Tobacco Trust. As . . . , r . j 1 licorice is not an article of steady i , , diet except to those who use chew-j ing tobacco, the public will gain nothing now the trust has deter mined to do equity by charging all its customers alike, for the tobacco manufacturers will probably not reduce the price of tobacco in con sequence of the vigorous trust pro-, seditions by the Administration of this predatory trust. Indians Not Dying Out i A popular impression prevails that the Indians are dying out. j Those who have given the subject study believe there are more In-: dians today in the United States than there were when Columbus landed. The Indians were never popu lous. They were too much at war. They roamed the prairies and hunted through the forests, but they never had local habita tions and were never many in one spot. The first actual census of the Indians was taken seventy years ago. At tliat time mere were found to be 253,464. Prior to that time everything had been by guess. Beginning with the count of 1830 the official reports of Indian population are as follows: In 160, at the beginning of the civil war, there were 254,000. Twenty years later, in JSSO, there were 256,127. In 1900 there were 272,023. Today by count of the Indian agents on j the reservations of the country, there are 2S4.000 Indians. The Indian is not dvinsr out. and there is no reason why he! hould. The government has pur sued a pohev, mistaken m many; respects, but vet calculated to give! liV the Indian a chance in the race of j besides himself; the tree will remain civilized life, and the Indian is a standing monument to his pru showing .considerable aptitude, j dece and forethought perhaps af- The t..j! c iirnaiiv. ill r nr-vv ut- in .

William Jennings Bryan, in an address at Lincoln, said: "Then we came to Madagascar. The Madagascar dealers who give short weight or sell impure articles go to prison for a year. But in moie enlightened countries they would go to Palm Beach or. to Onuond." ' Some newspaper men are terrible liars. In writing of a cyclone out west, oiie of them said it turned a well inside out,' a cellar upside down, moved a township line, blew the staves out of a whisky barrel and left nothing but a bung hole, changed the day of the week, blew a mortgage off a farm, blewill the cracks out of a fence t and knocked the windout or a politician.

Finding Relief It does seem that women have more than a fair share of the aches and pains that afflict humanity; they must "keep up," must attend to duties in spite of constantly aching backs, or headaches, dizzy spells, bearing down pains; they must stoop over, when to stoop , means torture. They must walk and bend and work with racking pains and many aches from kidney ills.

It is the fate of the heir apparent to the throne of Turkey that he must be kept in ignorance of the happening in the world. When, therefore, a doctor is to see him the physician must submit to greater suspicion. Being an European, he may not surreptitiously carry to the prisoner information which would enlighten him. When he pays a professional visit to the harem the doctor is under still greater sus picion. Being a European, he may not see the patient. This makes a diagnosis difficult. The attendants stretch a huge curtain across the room. Behind this the patient takes her stand, thrusts out her tongue and hands through the holes in the curtain, so that the man of medicine may see one and feel the other, yet not look on the face of the person to whom they belong.

The time occupied by a dream is one of the marvels of sleep. In the work entitled "The Philosophy of Mystery" we read of a man who dreamed that he had enlisted as a soldier; that he had joHed his reg iment and traveled to a foreign country; that he finally deserted on account of the harsh" treatment he had received at the hands of his superior officers: that he had been apprehended ancf carried back to his regiment; that upon arriving there he was tried by eourt martial, con demned to be shot and was led out for execution. At this moment the guns of the executioners exploded, and tho sound awoke the dreamer. It was clear now that a loud noise in- an adjoining room had both pro duced the dream and awakened the dreamer almost at the same mo ment. How He Did It. "How do you do it?" asked one real estate dealer of -another who had been boasting of Ins success in collecting some unusually bad rent bills. '""It's the simplest thing in the world' was the reply. "In most cases the reason that a man is .be hind in his rent is because he has met with a streak of hard luck and cannot pay. With a fellow like that I present him with a new suit of clothes, and that makes him feel like a new man and gives him tho courage to go out and get another job. Then, when he is on his feet again, he pays me the rent. Of course I generally lose the clothes money, but in the long run it is a good investment." Boston Trav eler. A Luxury. Two gentlemen dining in a Xew York restaurant were surprised to find on the bill of fare the item, ."green bluefish." "Waiter," one asked, "what sort of bluefish are green bluefish ?" "Fresh right from the water," said the waiter offhand. "Nonsense!" said the man. "You know well enough they do not take bluefish at this season." The waiter came up and looked at the disputed item. "Oh, that, sir!" he said, with an air of enlightenment. "That's hot house bluefish, sir." His Choice. A company of married people were discussing the day on which they would be married if they were making a second venture. "And what day would you prefer, hubby, dear?" asked one of the prepossess ing; looking matrons, turning to her devoted little mate. With an ab scntminded I-wish-my-soul-were-my-own look upon his careworn face the obedient one replied, "The 30th day of February, please!" Kansas City Journal. Deafness Cannot be Cured by local applications, as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure deafness, and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed con dition of the mucous lining of the Eus tachian Tube. When this tube is inflam ed you have a rumbling sound or imper fect hearing, and when it is entirely clos ed, Deafness is the result, and unless the inflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed condi tion of the mucous surfaces. We will give One Hundred Dollars for any case of Deafness (caused by catarrh) that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh dure. Send for circulars Jree. F. J.CHENEY & Co., Toledo, O.
