days of push and vim I will therefore devote a short time each week in giving a brief letter for pub lication toMr Garnett and myself arrived in Texarkanua Wednesday at 930 P M and on the following morning I cam to this town while he went direct to Dallas We came over the Cotto- Belt road from Memphis and while I had often heard of the Arkansas swamps I really had no conceptions o their Immensity but a days ride over that road will reveal the fact that Ar kansas is the wetest land in all th country It Pine Bluff Arkansas had been selected as the Capital of the Confederate States instead ot Rich Va President Jeff Davis and his cabinet would have been in a much safer place from the attack of the enemy He might have been routed but would have swamped the whole Union army Neither Mr Garnett nor myself de to spend much time in such low lands I am now in the Capital City of Bowie county Texa border county bounded on the North by the Indian Territory on the East by Arkansas This town is comparatively new having been made the county sea about ten years ago and now has population of 1800 people with healthy growth and doing a thriving business The CourtHouse is built over the stob that marked the geographical center of the county as established by the surveyor It is twenty two miles West of Texarkanna and in a beautiful about ten miles long and four wide This section is regarded a thin country compared with the black land- further West but it is a fine inns country and well watered The land here produces from five to eight bar reM of corn sixty to seventy bushels of oats and from onehalf to three fourths bales of cotton and one of th good features in raising cotton here i that the bowl worm has never bother ed in this part of theState The soil sandy backed up with clay bottom and evidence of prosperity is seen In every section Good lands desirable homes can be purchased here at from 00 to 1500 per acre I will spend two or three more days in this county visiting my relatives old Virginia friends I find my relatives here carrying the chief chars acteristic of the old family of Virgin la enjoying life and making merry with friends The Harris family of this county is headed by John C Harris anuncle of wine who is now in his 83rd year of life and s4 wing vitality as many men at Bit Tnis is said to be an unusually health locality and the many strong men au beautiful ladles are evidence of its correctness besides the many who have nearly reached the 100th mark There is a man living near here 102 years old and still goes without a cane It is stated

Its weakest link so the strength of a navy isgauged not by its arament and mechanical perfection but by the capacity of its crews t fight their ships After all is said it is the man behind the gun who wins fleent whose gunners are most proficient i mar manship has a battle halt won displaceearmor armament in the distinguished German military authority criticised the Amer teas navy chiefly on the ground that its crews were not homogeneous Be pohare at composite nationality in point of birth or descent this minion of the kaiser Implied that American men of wars crews are riflrafl without pa trlotlsm or adequate training or capac- Ity to be trained We hope this know Ing foreigner and other foreigners who are slow to appreciate the mag nificent development of Uncle Sams navy will read the technical report otI the target practice of the American fleet off Pensacola Fla 1onbtle- they will marvel that a heterogeneous navy can shoot so deadly well In the recent target practice refer ed to the battleship Illinois broke t worlds record with the thirteeninch guns and the gunners of the Iowa et tablished a new worlds record wit the sixpounders They made thirty successive hits out of thirty shots at a range of 1700 yards with the ship steaming along at twelve knots an hour abd tile target stationary To add to the remarkableness of the pe formance the sconce was not made by a single gun crew but by three gunI crows making ten shots each which goes to prove that the yankee gunne are all onto their jobs The record cannot be duplicated by the crack marksmen of any foreign battle ship small degree of the strength and pride of the American navy is in the 111i3ckie whose weather eye is trained to draw a bead on the vitals of an enemys hull and send her to Davy Jones lock er before her conning tower dandles know her range has been got This eagleeyed and steelnerved man beI hind the gun may have been born in bloomin England or Blngenonthe Rhine or his ancesters may ha fought under Lord Cornwallls or Fri pillhomogeneous in that sense but wbatbc can do with a sixpounder is a caution And as for his American ism his proud allegiance is to the flag fluttering overhead It

Santinel concludes an article as follows But there is another considerat- IOn If the testimony of these witnesses is not trueif they are committing perjury aud putting the crime on men who were not guiltywhy do not Taylor and Finlny and Powers and the rest of them tell who did shoot Goebel They know Nobody can doubt that Their best friends and most loyal protectors are not idiotic enough to believe that they do not know who the assassin was They were shut up with him in the same building The building was full ot their friends The shot was fired from the window of Powers office The officers of the law were kept out of the building un til the guilty parties had escaped from it The fugitives were sup plied with pardons for the crime from Taylor Who will believe that these men who were at the nead of that assemblage of des Pteradoes from the mountains do not know who fired the fatal shot And if the wrong man is accused why do they not point out the guilty ono t Mr Robert L
