Old Fort Brown no longer bris tling with arms.uever again a men ace to the town of Brownsville, but transformed into a. beautiful, smiling garden, where the federal government will still preside, it is -true, but in a guise that will make "Uncle Same the most delightful neighbor ever a town possessed. This is the bright prospect which the news wired by our good friend Congressman Garner holds out for rthe near future. Work is to be gin at once on UucleSam's garden, and in the course of a few months Brownsville will without doubt fcave a clear title to be called The harden City of Texas. Never again will surly, undisciplined and dan gerous fiends camp within the walls of the old post, to sally forth tit dead of night and attempt to murder the helpless, .sleeping citi zens of Brownsville. Where a short time ago brooded a hostile foe. cherishing a malignant hatred against the town, and plotting the murder of our people, will soon be growing rare and beautiful plants 'Orange groves will fill the air with :their sweet perfume, while stately .palai groves will add their beauty, wines will climb in graceful profu rsion, and beautiful flowers will 2end their glorious colors and fra- tgrance, all helping to obliterate athe evil memories that now cling to the old post. Brownsville will forgive and even forget the wrong that came to her people from the historic old fort, in the enjoyment .of the beautv which will soon be created there under the skillful -touoh of Uncle Sam's scientific i2ardeners. .OF INTEREST TO VETER ANS. & copy of the late act granting increased pensions to veteran United -States soldiers of both the Mexican ;and the Civil War has ibeen received by The Herald from Congressman Garner, with the suggestion that attention be called to its provisions so th'at ben eficiaries under the new law may Xake immediate steps to secure the increased pay allowed them. The act is copied in today's Herald and all of the old soldiers should zread it and adopt Mr. Garner's jsuggestion. If there is anything coming to the old soldiers, The Beraxd wants to see them get it without loss of time. Averse to Improvements. The greatest drawback to a pro gressive cjty like Corpus Christi is tthe man who owns lots with ricke Tty shacks on them which he is affraid to repair (and it may be a "blessing to mechanics, for they may give way under weight of a ladder) and won't sell to some body who would put a decent looking structure on them. This 'is the genuine type of mossback, but we are glad that Corpus holds only a few of such. Caller. When you hear a married woman sav that- all men are alike it's a Tho Janizaries. The janizaries are unique in the history of the world. Nothing like them has ever been known in the constitution of any state,- We think of them somehow in, association with the mamelukes of Egypt, but, though there were some points in common between them, they differ ed widely in their character and aim.' The mamelukes,. though orig inally a race of slaves, founded n sovereign dynasty in Egypt, Irat the janizaries, even at the height of their power, never ceased to be sol diers, and they maintained through out all their history, the proofs and symbols of their lowly origin. They made and unmade "sovereigns, but they never aspired to the high posi tions of state and-were content to fill their original posts. 2Tot one of their number ever occupied the -safe bet that she faced the parson throne of Turkey, and the whole -with the wrong man. Chicago! wip u vivumy uniy us its JNews. . Norfolk's Early Protest Against George's Tyranny. But few of the mqst diligent stu dents of - American history knov that Norfolk patriots denied the right of Great Britain to tax the colonies without representation over two months before the promul gation of the celebrated Mecklen burg declaration of independence and nearly live months before rep resentatives of the thirteen colonies met at Philadelphia and formally renounced the authority of Great Britain. Yet as far hack as March L3 1776, a number of Norfolk citizens assembled under the name of "Sons of Liberty" and announced in reso lutions -ofDold and certauv.terms their determined opposition- to-any-encroachments of British authority on their rights to govern themselves under the British crown. These Norfolk people did not de clare their independence. They 'ex pregsly affirmed their wish to he subjects of "King George ILL They merely declared that there should be no taxation without represents tion. Among the many prominent Norfolk names attached to the doc ument are Henry Tucker, Robert Tucker, Robert Tucker, Jr.; Maxi milian Calvert, Thomas Butt, Thomas Willoughby, John Taylor, Jr.; Joseph HutchWs, Jr., and James Parker. The resolutions adopted read as follows: Having- taken Into consideration the evident tendency of that oppressive and unconstitutional act of parliament com monly called the stamp act and being desirous that our sentiments should be known to posterity, and recollecting that we are a part of the colony which first In general assembly openly expressed its detestation of the said act. which is pregnant with ruin and productlvo of tho most pernicious consequences, and unwilling to rivet the shackles of slavery and oppression on ourselves and mil lions yet unborn, we have unanimously come to tho following-'resoluUons: Resolved, That we acknowledge our lord and sovereign. King George III., to be our rightful and lawful king and that we will at all times to the ut most of our power and ability support and defend his most sacred person, crown and dignity and shall always be ready when constitutionally called upon to as sist his majesty with our lives and for tunes and to defend his Just rights and prerogauves. Resolved, That we will by all lawful ways and means which Divine Providence has put into our hands defend ourselves in the fuU enjoyment of. and preserve In violate to posterity, those Inestimable privileges of all free born British sub jects of being taxed only by represents Uves of their own choosing and of being tried by none but a Jury of their peers. And that if we quietly submit to the execution of the said stamp act all our claims to civil liberty will be lost and wo and our subjects in America are deprived of the Invaluable privileges aforementioned. Resolved, That a committee be appoint ed who shall in such manner as they think proper go upon necessary business and make public the above resolutions and that they correspond as they shall see occasion with the Associated Sons of and Friends to Liberty in the other Brlt- lsh colonies In America. As a result of the adoption of these resolutions Lord Dunmore, who commanded the British fleet off Norfolk, made a demonstration be fore the city, and several shots were fired from the frigate Liverpool. Birmingham Age-Herald. Mean of Sister. A young fellow had called upon a girl with whose charms he was some what smitten and was waiting in the parlor when her small brother came in, weeping bitterly. From either a sense of politic precaution or natu ral kindness of heart the young man had been kind to the little fellow on several occasions and now took him on his lap and asked the cause of the trouble. "Sis-sister is mean to me," the lit tle fellow sobbed. "Oh, I guess she didn't intend to be. Maybe you worried her when she was busy," the youth said con solingly. "What was she doing?" "She was playin' an' wouldn't let me play, too," Bobby said. "Playing what the piano? I fuess she thought you didn't know ow." "Oh, yes, I know how better'n she does," Bobby asserted.
