Collier's Wesklv. Texas, Spanish Territory Texas was Spanish territory until 1812 when the Mexicans gained their independence of Spain. From 1836 to 1845 it was an independent republic. Its annexation by the United States in 1845 brought on the war with Mexico, through which New Mexico and California were ceded to the United states for $15,000,000 and assumption by the United States of certain claims of American citizens against Mexico. In 1850 Texas abandoned, tor 110,- 000,000, her claims to a portion of ivew Mexico; this was used to pay the debts that the republic of Texas had accumulated. By E.

As far as is known. Saint Simonism is the only gospel that ever proclaimed railroad construction as a religious act and sacrament. The lirst French railroad company was orjnized in the church of this religious group in Paris, and soon a sort of "Railroad University" was established from which emerged the engineers, administrators and financiers who were to organize the large French railway systems.

An' I don't mind a man dat tells a false-hood, cause I kin ketch him at it. But de man dat mixes up de two is terrible bard to keep up with." Hobton's Choice The expression "Hobson' choice" indicates no choice at all. The chooser is always jockeyed into a position in which he believes he is exercising his own selection. The expression goes back to the days of Tobias Hobson, first man in England to operate a lively stable. A man desiring a horse was told to take bis pick of the 40 or so owned by Hob-son, but when the picking was .over almost invariably it was the horse nearest the door which was selected. Hence the expression.
