Dobson & Co. is a firm that is al-
ways looking out for bargains, and
the firm combs the country for them
handing the salvaged goods to the
customers of the house figure that
One of the latest buys of this firm
was in Tulsa, Oklahoma. A big pa-
per house had a fire, and from the
looks of some of the paper the fire
was a bad one. All kinds of flat pa-
pers, including news print, the kind
neswpapers are printed on, were in
the building when the fire was dis-
covered. .Some of it was lost be-
yond recall, while parts of some of it
were salvaged, and some of it was
good, except tjie wrappers, which
In the list were rolls of paper, the
kind the fast printing presses use.
The end of the rolls were damaged,
and a couple of men took a cross-cut
saw and sawed the ends off! Thus
some of the paper was saved, and
when it is considered that newsprint
costs real money—cash on the bar-
rel head, this was not a bad idea, it-
self. Newsprint is made from wood,
so the cross-cut saw went right
through it. The man doing the job
smoothed the ends off with a jack-
plane, and he said he had to stop
every now and then to sharpen his I
plane, that it did not take the paper
long to dull it.
The work is being done down in
front of the Dobson & Co. warehouse
on South Center street. Naturally
it interests a newspaper man more
than anybody. He is always in the
market for paper, if the price is

Help 1116111 Cleanse the Blood
of Harmful Body Waste
Your kidneys are constantly filtering
waste matter from thefoiood stream. Bui
kidneys sometimes lag in their work—do
not act as Nature intended—tail to re-
move impurities that, if retained, may
poison the system and upset the whole
body machinery. ....
Symptoms may be nagging backache,
persistent headache, attacks of dizziness,
getting up nights, swelling, puffiness
under the eyes—a feeling of nervous
anxiety and loss of pep and strength.
Other signs of kidney or bladder dis-
order may be burning, scanty or too
There should be no doubt that prompt
treatment is wiser than neglect. Use
Doan’s Pills. Doan’s have been winning

Mr. and Mrs. Frank Campbell
have moved from the farm at Tulip
to their new home on Bonham Route
3, a few miles north of the city, on
Highway 7,8. They have a beautiful
country home, with many of the con-
veniences. Their Bonham friends
will be glad to know that these esti-
mable people have gotten that far
back on the road to Bonham, their
former home, anyhow. Miss Ellen
Campbell, their daughter, who teach-
es in Plainview, is with them for the

The Herald, has had his paper
changed to his new address.
Mrs. S. I. Schillings and son,
Charles of Oklahoma City, have been
here and at Dodd City to visit rela-
tives and friends. Mr. Schillings is
the same one who used to be a base-
ball pitcher in these parts, and once
Joe Hrdlicka got him to play Santa
Claus. Schillings weighs about 250
pounds, and Hrdlicka is at least in
the welter-weight class. All the
kids thought it was going to be Mr.
Hrdlicka—but it was Mr. Schillings
who handed out the candy. Sehill-
is now connected with fire depart-
ment in the Sooner City.

AN OLD TIMER STROLLS IN
AND TALKS OF OTHER DAYS
I City ...
A, |R. Davis, who is known as
‘Fred” Davis, down where Gritter-
ville was, and Gober is, stepped into
The Herald office Thursday after-
noon. He now lives in Stamford,
Texas, and has lived there for sev-
eral years, leaving Fannin county in
1889 for the west. He left here
when his children were small. Now
they are grown, married and grand-
parents, which proves that time
In the back-stretches of Fannin
County Mr. Davis was the Gober
deputy sheriff under Smith Lip-
scomb. Mr. Lipscomb and Mr. Dav-
is made many a raid ‘after bad men,
and while they got many thrills, and
had many tight places, they manag-
ed to get by with it all, and usually
got their man. Sheriff Lipscomb
said that more than one time “Fred”
saved his life.
The intrepid sheriff, who was one
of Lee’s men, and who was “blown
up” at Petersburg, Va., when the
crater exploded, has slept the sleep
that knows no waking here, for sev-
eral years. His memory as a peace
officer will live on as long as the
annals of men are chronicled.
Mr. Davis in now 89 years old.
He has seen Texas develop into an
empire of great things, for rail-
roads have come in his life time,
and w*e have the telephone, moving
pictures, electric lights, waterworks,
radios and hundreds of things now
that were not here when he was
born. He saw the court house we
how have built. The rock was quar-
ried in his little home town of Go-
ber, and hauled to Bonham, where
Magnus and his clan of Brawny
Scots cut the stone into the pieces
that went to make the building.
When he left here we had no roads
in wet weather, and the Gober
people would come to Bonham to
trade, bringing the fore-wheels of
their wagons, with four husky mules
hitched to them, and on which they
were content to haul home a few
groceries. Some of the men act-
ually walked through the fields,* from
out that way, to get a few necessi-
It is a long-distance call from
those “good old days” to what we
have now, Mr. Davis. Now we have
rural electrification, and a number
of good roads over the county, and
more coming. Your little town of
Gober has electric lights, good
schools and good school facilities—so
have other rural communities.
Mr. Davis, it was all right, when
you lived here, to step out and kill
a deer, whenever you felt like it,
but don’t attempt it now, saying you
might find the buck. The game war-
den would stick you so far back in
“durance vile” that it would take a
postcard a week to find you.
Good luck to you, Old Timer, in
the West. Trek back to see us all
when you feel like it, and come to
see The Herald.
