A Man Who llg an to Write Jokes When
m Chllil.
Alexander R. Sweet, who edits Texas
81 f tings, and who Is prolific as n humorist,
has been described as "a typical hayseed,
wttli his loose, rough looking clothes, heavy
movements, full uncultured heartland rich
complexion. One would Judge he knew
More about eropa' than human nature. In
eoBversattosi Im aays funny things that del
serve plaosa In print with a countenance
marked by Ineffable solemnity." Mr.
Sweet is a modest geiitlemnn of mild mnn-
uora, with a kindly fnco. Ho lives In Now
York city with his
family. Ho was
iKirn in Canada in
1841, but when he
was n mere child
hi parents moved
to Sun Antonio,
Tex., nml nettled
there. At tdxtccn
ho went to school
at Poughkccpnic,
after which ho vis
ited Germany nml
was n Htudent at
CarUrttho, Baden,
for Bevcral years
He returned to
Texas In IS03 and Joined tho Thirty-third
Texan cavalry as a privnto, and served un
til tho war ended.
"After the war," says Mr. Sweet, "I
practiced Inw, but not with any bewilder
ing degree of success. I drifted Into Jour
nalUm, and for soveral years furnished a
column of Ban Antonio slftlugs for tho
Gnlvcston News. These items wore much
copied, and I started Texas Slftlugs In I8SI
in Austin. My life has been comparatively
blameless, except for a short time when 1
was learning to play on tho flute." In re
gard to his methods of work Mr. Sweet
ouce rcmarkcdi
"Unlike other nllegcd humorists, 1 can
not recall my first downward step. I bo
gnu going down from my crudle, I believe.
The propensity to write funny things was
contemporaneous with my first successful
struggle with tho alphabet, and has accom
panied mo through life, bringing with it
all tho misfortunes which have blighted
my career and mndo me tho peusivo creat
ure you behold. How do I build my Jokes?
I think my Jokes build themselves. They
even get Into my business correspondence.
Of the different styles of humorous writing
the brief paragraph Is tho mont difficult
A column of such paragraphs dnlly would
put any man under the sod In twelve
months, whereas humorous sketches, es
pecially If they nro In n series, are tho easi

Itomau Catholic church. The monk saw
danger to tho church at largo should Dr.
Newton remain n proinliuont member. Ho
publicly denounced thu "hypocrisy" of tho
preacher and called upon Bishop Potter to
discipline him.
Dr. Newton's offense, an formulated by
Father Ignatius, consists In his alleged
denial of tho Incarnation and resurrection
of Christ. Ho in also said to have expressed
tho opinion that there is no need for tho
miraculous conception of tho divlno word.
Dr. William H. Huntington, rector of
Grace church, who questioned tho nccu
racy of the monk's statement of Dr. Now
ton's position, and appealed for tolerance
In tho church, was
dubbed an lullilel,
and his letter on
the subject charac
terized ns n "piece
of slippery Jesuit
Ism." Dr. Da Cos
ta, In upholding
Father Ignatius,
declared that "the
church today Is
badly entangled In
the tolls of Satan.
Tho spirit of
worldllncsn, In
spired and direct
ed by wealth, is
regardless of di
vine truth. The
HKtiKR NKWTON. wealth or tho land,
to a largo extent, views religion as a system
of economical insurance, a 'cheap dofenso
for the nation,' and regards the priest sim
ply ns a member of tho moral police,"
Dr. Newton has conducted himself with
dignity during tho hubbub. In a sermon
he said the miusii"re of St. Bartholomew
was one of the atrocities committed
through faith, whi;b "bos also burned li
braries, closed
schools, ana ho
natlaed science,
martyred philos
ophers, white
washed the walls
on which art has
drawn her glori
ous visions, staid

"tho corner stono of truo Christianity,"
and said tho chief regard of organized
Protestantism, equally with Itomiiulsm,
was not truth iu Itself, but truth as held
by tho fathers, and delivered by them to
their children that Is, "truth arrested,
fixed, stereotyped, Until."
There is also warfare in a certain section
of tho Catholic cliuich. This, however, Is
not a dispute as to doctclue, but what np
pears to bo a personal quarrel betw ecu two
bishops openly carried on by tho Rochester
Catholic Journal
and tho UutTalo
Catholic Union.
Bishop McQuald,
of Rochester, con
demned the course
of the latter paper
in a recent pastor
al letter. Ho said
it bad for years
and m 11 1 1 g ri o d

ought to creato division among the priests
and people In a malicious, unchristian
spirit. To prevent serious Injury to tho
faith and morals of tho young lie protested
against tho circulation of Tho Catholic
Union In tho diocese, ns it was "not lit
reading for decent and pure minded chit
dren," nnd was "a constantly recurring
source of scandal to many, running luto
sin nnd shame," Bishop Ryan, of Buffalo,
refused to mnko any answer to this pastor
al. "Tho Bishop of Rochester," he said,
"undoubtedly felt Justified iu writing tho
letter, and with his action this diocese bus
nothing to do. I have 110 quarrel with
Bishop McQuald."
Baptist circles have been stirred to their
depths by tho defection of ono of their
leading pastors on tho all absorbing topic

N1111111 of the Wild Wn)n of (In Ahentl
Impt December, when wo had completed
the lepalrs to llio picket feuro surrounding
our private graveyaul nud counted tip tho
graven, wo announced our earnest hope
that tho number would never exceed nine.
Wo never really wanted to kill any ono of
the batch, much preferring to live at peace
with nil mankind, but It wan 11 casu of
"shoot first or go under" In each and every
Instance, and It became our duty to shoot.
Everybody knows wo have done the
square thing when compelled to outfit n
mini for tho far off country. Wo havu
bought colllnn, furnished Nliroiids, got up
funeral processions and planted tho Immi
grant on our own privnto lot, where his
headboard would not Imi taken by tho cow
boys fornciichcr table nor his bones become
tho prey of tho co) olei. It Is needless to
add that we shall continue to pursue thin
lllx-ral policy iu tho future, while the sub
scription price of tho Kicker will still re
main at two dollars per ear.
As stilted nt the beginning, wo hoped to
keep the number down to nine, but cir
cumstances over which wo hud no control
erected 11 tenth headboard thu other day.
In writing up Colonel Woodhouso's new
ranch two weel.s ago wu Jocularly referred
to a cowboy as ' Cockered Bill." It seems
that bin proper title is "Squliitoyed Will
iam," and ho took offense at our license.
Wo liavo Invariably noticed that when wo
nttempt anything Jocular somebody dies
before the mouth expires, nud wo shall now
swear oil', ,
Bright and early Monday morning the
gentleman with the Imperfect optics opened
tlio front door of our olllco with 11 great
deal of useless energy, ami lieforo wo ssiuhl
glvo him C. O. I), rates 011 a half ciPfumii
ml. ho began banging away at us. Wu
knew, from tho way bin first bullet chawed
Its way through the straw hat wu wear Iu
thuollk-e that he meant business, and wo
didn't allow any vision of tho dear old
hoinu back In New Knglnml, with mother
standing iu tho door, stop us from getting
ready to return his courtesies.
William shot tho bauds off our office
clock, split tho ear of thu Chlnamnii who
turns tlio crank of our power press unci
blasted the peaceful life of a yaller cnt
which w 0 paid llvodollnro for In Tucson; but
when tho cannonade had ceased William
hnd gone down tho long, dark trnil to Join
ids forefathers. Wowere,of courso, prompt
ly acquitted before tho coroner's Jury, nnd
we think we did the square thing when wo
got thirteen vehicles out to William's fu
neral. All our readers will bear witness to tho
fnct that wo have exercised the greatest
patience in bearing the slum and taunts of
our esteemed weekly contemporary On
three different occasions wo would have
been perfectly Justified In killing him, but
wo restrained our hand becnuso wo knew
ho owed Ids two compositors money which
they would lose If ho went under ground.
Wo long ago decided to pay no further at
tention to him, no matter what ho satd;
but there was an item In bin last Issue
which calls for a word or two of explana
tion from us.
Our lop cared, lop shouldered, knock
kneed, slab shied, ramshackle, bald headed,
poverty stricken, cross eyed, web footed,
toothless old contemporary, with an nver
age circulation of 317 copies weekly against
our tens of thousands (see our sworn state
ments), says that we were cowbided In our
own sanctum three days ago by a lady
named Miss Green, who Is a music teacher
lately arrived from Indiana.
His statement is an Insult to a young,
beautiful and accomplished lady, who was
at once accorded the ontmy of the best
society In the town, nud who enmo here
with letters of the highest recommenda
tion from respectable people.
Mrs. Green called at Tho Kicker office in
the most mutable mood ami with the most
peaceful Intentions. She simply aud sweet
ly desired us to publish nue of her oiiginnl
poems, entitled "When the Hen's KggNesta
Again," and we wero tlirico glad to do so.
It appears on our third page today, and wo
feel that wo cannot say too much iu praiso
of it.
Tints do wo confound, paralj ze, upset,
break in two and knock out the human
hyena whose spiteful soul would blacken
our private character before thin commun
ity, and witli it the fair reputation of an
angel in female clothes. Words fall to ex
press our contempt for this Inhuman
monster, but no mlvunco will bo mndo in
