FOR THE HELPLESS.
There are many things which
Brownsville needs to do for its own
betterment, but there is one thing
which it, should do for the sake of
those who are helpless. It should
organize a humane society. No one
knows the sufferings which are in
flicted upon the dumb brutes that
are subject to cruel and heartless
A human being if mistreated can
tell of his wrongs and obtain relief
and redress. A poor beast, depriv
ed of the power of speech, can only
endure its pangs in silence. The
other day, in the recorder's court in
this city was seen a wretched goat,
with its eyes goughed out. its legs
broken, and its siues raw and bleed
inS a living witness of man's in
humanity, that showed only too
plainly what cruelty man may be ap
able of. This was an extreme case,
V perhaps, yet -who knows what other
barbarity such wretches as that man
may Jnflict at any time upon the
helpless creatures about him of
Mch the authorities and the pub
lie may not he informed? We all
do know that there are scores of
poor, lialf-strved burros or other
draft .animals kept and used in this
Jrvfn vhihose sufferings must be in
tense. Y.r they could only speak
cheir wroriy tell of the pangs of
., 6B3jger andjcold which they endure,
wMe dTivn frora jrornfns until
aiht. thoiA every muscle strained
and .aching until they can hardly
jnavr yet goadea on by heartless
masters. If -vve could but know tho
pain these poor animals are suffer
ing, perhaps we might not rest so
contented in the enjoyment of the
creature comforts that fall to the
share of the well fed, well clad
ones, who dine at plentiful tables,
sit beside warm fires and slep under
"Brownsville is behind the world in
the matter of protecting the help
less ones within her limits. Humane
societies everywhere now endeavor
to prevent cruelty to animals by as
sisting in the enforcement of the
laws which punish such exhibitions
J inhumanity. Texas has laws
which punish cruel treatment of
titinib animals, and the humane so
cieties elsewhere see that these laws
are enforced. lirownsville should
organize such a society. There are
plenty of kindly disposed people
here, plenty who openly condemn
the cruel treatment of animals, and
very probably if someone would
take the initiative in the inatt.-r, it
would be very easy to organize a
ftuinae society here.

Kingsville High defeated Browns. I
ville High last Saturday in the first j
game that has ever been played by 1
a team from the local school. Al
though beaten, the Brownsville boys
have reason to fell greatly encourag- j
ed over the splendid fight they put ',
up. The Kingsville team was slight
ly heavier ad older than Brownsville
and also more experienced, this be
ing their second game. In spite of
these disadvantages there was very
little choice in the playing of the
teams, Brownsville showing every
bit as strong as their opponents.
yhen it is considered that some of
the local players had never seen a
football before this season and that
they have had no scrub to practice
against, their showing was remarka
Though the score stands official
ly 11-5, it should have been 6-5,
Kingsville being credited with a
touchdown in the second half
through a mistake in the interpreta
tion of the rules by the referee
What was declared a touehdow
really a touchback, which sh
count for neither team.
Kingsville won the toss and decid
ed to receive the kick. Guzman !
booted the ball down the field to R. ,
Doherty, who brought it back ten
yards before being downed by Gro. ,
er. After a few short gains, Kings-i
itte punted to Schmelling, who was
downed on the visitors 45 yard line, j
Guzman and Schmellig tore off fif- .
teen yards in a couple of plays, then ;
Kingsville stiffened and Turner tried j
a goal from the field which fell
short. Wells muffed the ball on his j
five yard line and Craig recovered j
it for Brownsville. Guzman then j
smashed through left tackle for a j
touchdown, three minutes after the ;
beginning of the half. Hanson j
failed in t..e try for goal. Score j
Brownsville, 5; Kingsville, 0.
After tne kick off the ball moved
up and down the field, changing '
bands frequently, neither team being
able to gain consistently. Near the
