SOME LOCAL HENTION PABIS TEX July 22 To The News For the first time in several years the corn crop in North Texas is almost a total failur In some localities who inthe rain fall has been good corn good in other localities it will not yield five bushels per acre and as a consequence the price has advanced tocr one dollarper bushel The May plan lo thgrain will yield a fair crop but the March and April planting is beyond redemption promisiuayg and with rain enough to keep it crow log until September will make a goo yield Of course in a few days the ca lamity howlers will bust half a dozen blood vessels in the effort to cuavin their neighbors that the ball wurm is goin ter stroy the hul crop Some people are seemingly unmind ful of the fact that it is too hot to en in the grave digging businessI mortgage their cotton crop for a shooter and after the manner of Cherokee Bill go out to practice onI tomu good for this world Several killings have occurred in Paris and vicinity re The most cowardly crime everS committed occurred in Clarlrsvllolas night Ernest Hunter a known young farmer was the vi wenht uo me to spend the night and while he was engaged In preparing a place for them to sleep on the porcbd they drew their pistols and shot hi five or six times killing him In iantJyt hired hand beard the shots and gavee the alarm The McAncars weir arIrested and narrowly escaped a llnching which they so richly deserved Many of North Texas citizens arca much excited over a report thatII 1848 aiparty of Mexicans buried sevc cralwajjon loads of gold in the Territory about forty miles from Paris and many of them have gone in search it Col E L Dohoney has beent igging for burled treasure for several but says he has failed to find what be sought Several persons so the story goes hunted for the treas mentioned above years ago and at found immense deposits of mineralbright sparkling goldto which they helped themselves loads their horses and led them home They their gold in

Standing Army The direct cult of our special army is about 240 times the amount raised in our nation for foreign missions It is nearly six times the amount derived from ties on imported goods under t Dingley tariff law and more than times the amount derived from the same source under the Wilson tariff law It H trrl 2 times the yearly difference be tweeu the two That is the di ference between Republican tariff and Democratic would pay the ex armyIpenee of this speci ti army is 18 times the entire gold product of the United States in 1809 is near ly 17 times the value of the entire silver product of the union in the same year and nearly 0 times the combined product of both It is considerably more than twice the entire gold and silver product of the whole world for the year 1809 Now it is an admitted foot rtes armies are injurious to morals and and are productive of crime and the due wo are considering pecu flatly so In fact it nausea three fourths or mneteutha of all crime One statistician places the entire iminal expense and loss at 000I 000000 per year Three fourths of this may bo charged up to our special army making an expense item of 450000000 per year T make a long story short withoa- inggo into further details we may sum up the entire direct and suds rect cost of this institution at two billion seven hundred million dol lara annually This is the acts morn of A A Hopkins in his Wealthand Waste and it is a very corservative one I am satisfied that the entire cost may be safely placed at three billion dollars a annually in round numbers- It may be objected that part o this immense sum is money paid to this standing army and remain ingiu the country is still a portion of the nations wealth I one sense this is true but we ma safely say that twentyfour twen tyfifths of our people are nears three billion dollars poorer an the whole nation a billion and a half dollars poorer each year for this favored and favorite institution of Uncle Sams Sorel there ought to be some great re turn or some very great benefit received by the people of the United States to justify maintaining so expensive a standing army as this In my next I will consider the work of

he of the sport if it may be so called that the people have begun to pall over the tiresome repeti toe of attendance on his Majesty It is not so long ago that the life of the Prince of Wales caused the prophecy to be made that at the death of Queen Victoria England would have no more of a monarchy The love of of royalty is deeply bred in the heart of the Britisher It must be suspect ed that even some American parents have a liking for the titled gare Anyway King Edward Is as securely fixed on his throne as any ruler in Europe perhaps more firmly fixed than any other- Americans can hardly
