BRYAN, TEXAS, March 6, 1909.
The Taft inauguration was a sure
enough frost. Let us hope that it
was not an omen.

We speak of poets and artists as
if they were classes apart possessing
superior endowments. This is a mis
take. Every true man and woman,
boy and girl is both a poet and artist
and one who lacks these faculties is a
deformity. There is, of course, a dif
ference in the degree of endowment
and in many the faculty is not de
veloped, but the almost universal ap
preciation of poetry and art proves
that it exists.
