The accumulation of great wealth in the hands of the few the robbery of cities counties states Aud often of several states by grasping Money combinations and private incorporation the ease and impunity with which men who Are shrewd Aud unscrupulous manipulate Public and private enterprises to make Money fast and yet escape Legal accountability when contrasted with the Fate of the poor negro who is sent to the Penitentiary for two years for the theft of a fancy Bird dog Breeds communism. A taxpayer who has been eyeing the Street Block pavement work from the commencement passes this criticism the Block pavement began in front of the Alamo that was a splendid piece of work and remains As smooth and firm today As it was when finished. As the work proceeded and got farther and farther away from the Alamo it deteriorated it became As rough As a Corduroy Road on Houston Street Octagon blocks became round pieces of Wood and in tact from Mesquite blocks they have come Down to Mesquite chips. # the comment May be Well taken but who is to blame certainly not the contractor and his hackers it is their business to make Money of the Job ii they can. A a a every particle of the work of building our Block pavements Bas been Nuder the direct inspection of the City officials from the grading of the roadbed the mixing of the Cement to the laying of blocks in fact so close has been the surveillance of the City apparently that the contractor can say that he has furnished the labor and the material and the City has done the bossing. A a a who is responsible if the pavement work is not what it should be most assuredly the City administration. Ask an Alderman about tuts business and you will be astonished at his ignorance he will be unable to Tell you anything about the specifications or the Cost per foot of the work. # the special meeting of the City Council to go through the form of accepting the fire alarm system and to receive the report of the commissioners appointed to pass on the opening of Crockett Street was so Brief that compensation.

The report of the commissioners on the Crockett Street widening was simply received and the advertisement ordered if the report is sustained the City has been successful in opening the Street at a nominal Cost to the City Treasury the Burden failing on adjacent property. Alderman Lockwood a report upon the test of new fire alarm system was a Complete confession either of the incapacity of the committee appointed to make the test or their determination to avoid any possibility of a failure of the system to do its work perfectly. A a this report is a futile attempt to Gull the Public even the report As published in the express is misleading a alarms were turned in from fire alarm it should be a a five alarm boxes. The Public Are thus led to think that there was a Complete test made where in fact Only a a five out of the sixty five boxes were tested. Alderman Lockwood the a Council and the to Tabbie Warnack. A Bunch of Flowers in her hand my lady held with languid Grace the Blush upon the Flowers spread and softly dyed her face. From out her Dainty Sailor hat she took an instrument of woe and there upon her heaving breath she planed the buds exactly so. If i could come that near her heart id penance do for every sin permitting her in docile part. To Pierce me also with a pin. Reba Gregory Prelat. San Antonio Texas. Hints on Melon culture. Thinning out. Thinning out should be done gradually and never completed until the Plant is Large and hard enough to resist the ravages of the Melon Bug for these Little pests i have never found a remedy. Leave Only one Vine to the Hill. The kind of culture. In at first cultivation must he done with a Hoe thinking As you Hoe and and using the fingers. Never work them when the ground or Plant is wet disturb the vines just As Little As possible keep the blowing always ahead of them and work among them with the Hoe and hand. After the vines have attained to some size say five or six feet Long they cannot be moved without injury. Never clip off any portion of the Vine the Leaf is the lung of the Plant by Means of which it feeds them from the atmosphere and it wants All it can get in this Way. If you wish to grow fancy melons instead of clipping the Vine Cut off the superfluous and ill shaped melons leaving two or at most three to the Vine. With 300 vines to the acre two melons to the Vine will give 600, which would be a very flue crop 400 weighing from Twenty pounds up is an average. I have never seen one Vine Bear Over two really Fine melons. Growers differ As to the Best commercial fertilizers. I have had the Best results from a combination of dissolved Bone German Kain it and Cotton seen meal equal parts by weight applying irom 400 to 600 pounds per acre and i apply this As col. Bedding of the Experiment station terms it a in two rations a the first ration before planting As before described and the second when the vines Are from twelve to Twenty four inches Long. I run a Scooter Furrow about three feet from the Hill both ways and distribute in this As for Cotton covering with a sweep. I apply this second ration in the same manner whether the first was commercial or Domestic. The Hay crop. I another source of profit from growing melons is too often overlooked and that is the Hay crop that grows on the land after the melons Are gathered. It the Stock Are kept off the Field and the Hay is properly harvested it will pay All the expense of the cultivating the melons. But Southern Farmers Are slow to learn the value of grass. When i plow my melons the last time i run a Scooter through the Centre in this i Plant Field peas. I run a sweep Furrow on each Side of the Scooter Farrow this covers the peas and completes the blowing of the crop. The peas will be up in five or six Days by which time the Vine will have reached them. They serve a double purpose. The tendrils of the Vine take hold of them and this prevents the Vine from being blown about by the wind and later the pea Vine shades the melons from the hot july Sun. The pea being an atmospheric Plant does not detract from the growth of the Melon. These pea vines May at the proper time be gathered for Bay. A Atlanta Constitution. Insurance k. P.

Congratulates citizens upon possessing the Best fire alarm system in Texas and one of the Best in America a a from the test made this congratulation is simply a piece of hum buggery. In a 4 Alderman Lockwood attempted to explain Why Only five boxes were turned in that inasmuch As a the City electrician had been working for the past two weeks with the system a they accepted his say so that it was All right. A a a City electrician Ryan was simply added to the committee to Render any assistance required As an expert not for the purpose of answering tor the effectiveness of the system the Public might As Well have been saved this exhibition of municipal hocus pocus by accepting the new system mid summer clearance Sale of seasonable dress fabrics Low shoes and slippers and the largest Stock South of mensa youths boys and children a hats furnishing goods and fashionable tailor made Cloetingh dress goods no such value Eyer before offered As we Are now showing in this department slow lines have Heen touched up to a show of life sharply bought Job lots and much that is new have been added prices Are now marked to a notch in keeping with the leanest purse bargains never before seen in san Antonio.

Now it May be True that the new fire alarm is All that Alderman Lockwood claims for it but so far As the official test is concerned nobody can claim it to be so. # # there Are sixty five alarm boxes and every single one should have been tested and tested in a Way thai. Would prove that there had been no out and dried programme for the test. # # if any single Box failed to Register correctly the system is worthless be cause such a failure endangers both life and property.

Honor Able mention is made of misses Bessie Kirkland Amy Cresswell and Mary e. Myers. Leguminous plants. Storrs station. The following practical summary is taken from the report Clover cow peas Vetches and other legumes have a Peculiar Power of gathering Plant food and especially nitrogen from natural sources. Although they contain much More nitrogen than wheat Oats and similar grains they thrive and bring Large yields where wheat will not. While their faculty for gathering nitrogen from the stores in the soil and especially from the air is not yet explained the important fact Here is that they do gather it and leave great Deal of it in the roots and stubble. Nitrogen is the costliest ingredient of fertilizer. These facts help to explain the Economy of Clover for manure and Why Dover is so valuable As a preparatory crop tor wheat and other grains. The above cited facts would seem to imply that the legumes such As Clover cow peas and Lupine Are especially valuable for this kind of manuring that Timothy and other grasses stand next Anc that the Grain crops leave the Leas amounts of Plant food in roots and stubble.
