Ex-f Jovernor Hogg got off the fol lowing is a speech at Houston, Texas Bst month that is worth reading: He gave it out strong that he is not seeking an office; said that he dosn't desir# any favors at the hands •f the Democracy other than a steady and reliable support of the ticket, and attendance at the primaries. Same of the good things he got off: "A common liar in a community is a benefit. He is like the sewer that carries off the filth. A community liar carries away in his mouth all the bad things said in the community. ''I hold that no man produces wealth except the man who scratches the •erth or deals in the earth's pro ducts. "The girls of the country have been alone in the matter of title hunting, hut the boys wifi want them after a while. Then wa will have centrali Mtitm of power and a big standing army. Asked about his view* on the race question, he answered: "That ques tion ia up North. We have no race question here, unless the people make Maine f ools of themselves.

Robert Rueeell. Brekeman. This is a glorious age in which we live. Old men, thank God that you have lived this long to be of it: and young men, let your hearts be grate ful that your coming was delayed un til this generation. Our men are glorious. Our women are glorious. And so are our sims and achieve ments. The glory that was Greece, and the grandeur that was Rome! True, true, in their arts and their letters and their semi-barbaric civilization, but for the heroism of lowly ones God bless and keep them—let us look ts America and the rest of Christen dom, and to the Twentieth century. There are marbled remembrances for tliose of us who, in a particular field, rise above our fellows, but we are helpless in keeping green the mem ory of our humble men and women whose spirits are chivalrous and gal lant and whose hearts are strong and brave. One instance from tens of thous L * > . eherg A»«ool«tion. t the recent meeting of the teach association of Holmes county, in the Lexington training school chapel, many knotty problems pertaining to the profession were discussed. A very excellent paper on "A Standard for Holmes County teach ers was read by Miss May ( room I Brown, of Owens. The paper showed ; much thought and acquaintance - with | literature, bistory, etc., and was! most hoartily appreciated by all pres- j ent. Misses Rathell, Ellington, Marshall, Miles, etc., discussed the graded sys-! tein and its benefi's as seen in i schools of the county. | It was the unanimous opinion of | those present that this was the most profitable meeting that the associa tion has ever held. The committee on program for next meeting was re quested to p repare a program to be j published within two weeks. The next meeting v\ ill occur Jan. 9th, 1904 in the Training School Chapel, the hour of meeting is II, A. M., closing at 1 P. M.

How long they had been at it we don't know, but they showed great fatigue, although there were no signs from either to quit. We suggested the idea for some one to stop their pugilistic efforts, and they were separated. As soon however as they were turned loose, at it they went again until stopped the second time. We had occasion to call in at a store immediately after this warm ing exeicise, when one of the clerks remarked with considerable admira tion for the contestants, "that was the best scrap 1 have seen in years'' Both were very much exhausted, and the exertion had got the best of their lung power to draw air.
