with your presence.
In some parts of Texas, last

Schulenburg Citizens

It you have backache, urinary
troubles, or dizziness, headaches or
nervousness, strike at the seat of
the trouble. These are often the
symtoms of weak kidneys and there
is grave danger in delay. Doan's
Kidney Pills are especially prepared
for kidney ailments—are endorsed
by over 30,000 people. Your/neigh-
bors recommend this remedy—have
proved its merits in many tests.
Schulenburg readers should take
fresh courage in the straightforward
testimony of a Schulenburg citizen.
W. [A. Johnson, says: "I was
severely troubled by kidney com-
plaint. Backache was the worst
symtom and I could scarcely get up
after sitting. Doan's Kidney Pills,
procured at Breymann's Drug
Store, removed the lameness across
my back and restored my kidneys
to a normal condition. During the
past few years, Doan's Kidney Pills
have kept my kidneys in good

simply ask for a kidney remedy—

Board of Regents of University

of Industrial Arts one of their

until Feb. 1, 1916, after which
time the Governor will appoint
three members to serve six years,

February, 1915, will not have
a full moon, a thing that has not
happened since 1866 and that
will not happen again until 2,500,-
000 years from February. The
moon in January was full on the
first and will full again on the
thirtieth. In March it will be full
on the first and thirtieth again,
and cuts off any possibility of
February having a full moon. It
is an odd combination of circum-
stances. If there is anything in
signs, 1866 was a peace year
after a big war.

OpposGd Bill to Increase Employes
Washington, January 27.—In a
speech in the house today against
the bill increasing the pay of em-
ployes in the public health serv-
ice, Representative Dies sounded
what he declared to' be a call to
"rally around the flag of individ-
ualism and old democracy." He
said, in part, "I am going to
stand for the man who pays the
taxes. I am going to stand for
the individual against the govern-
ment. I am going to stand for the
people who have been hoodwinked
with false promises. I am going
to stand for the farmer in my
district who has been told that
the government ought to buy his
cotton, and I am going to tell him
that he has been buncoed by
bunco steeres, for the govern-
ment "ought not to buy his cotton.
I believe, gentlemen of the house,
that a little inocent demogoguery
is a good thing in congress, but
we carry it too far. From this
chamber and from the chamber
at the other end of this capitol
we are educating the people to
believe that the government
ought to buy their produce, that
the government ought to find a
job for them and pay them a sal
ary, that the government ought
to look after their health, that
the government ought to take
care of them when they are old
and in poverty. I wish the Ameri-
can people to know that all the
government can do is to give
them a fair equal chance in the
race for life. I have made up
my mind that I do not love an
easy place in congress well
enough to keep on holding it and
eating the taxes of the people
without telling them the truth,
and that we are deceiving them
about the functions of govern-
ment and about duty that the
government owes them and what
they ought to expect from the

The $135,000,000 cotton loan I government is a pauper, -with
Sengelmann Bros.
fund, subscribed to by banks
throughout the country ostensi-
bly to aid distressed cotton grow-
ers, will go out of existence on
February 1. The Federal re-
serve committee for the "loan
fund," says that only about
$12,000 was applied for. * If the
fund ever had a really good in-
tent, its purpose seems to have
been choked to death by red-
tapeism. - The cotton grower
needs to get the thought hrmly
impressed upon his mind that
"the Lord helps only those who
help themselves," and that the
money to expend only as
reaches into the pockets of
producer of wealth and secures
it. I n the game of seeking favors
