A DUTY FOR ALL.
What ever may be your political
favors as to the president of the
United States, it becomes the duty
of all loyal citizens of Texas to fly
the standard of the public schools
The amendment to the constitution
which covers the defects in the public
school system will be on tTie blanket
ticket and will read, "For the amend
ment to Article 7, Sectiod 3 of the
Constitution." With this amend
ment, the country schools and the
schools in smaller towns and cities
such as Hereford will be placed on
equal footing with the larger cities
of the state. It is a platform demand
of the Democratic party, which prom
ises better public schools ; it is the
demand of all the people. Vote for
the children and their schools.
To adopt this amendment would
accomplish these results :
1. It would empower every rural
school district to levy a local school
tax by majority vote of the property
holding, tax-paying voters.
2. It would grant to each dis-
trict the right to levy a local school
tax at any rate not greater than fifty
cents on the one hundred dollars of
property valuation. A yote for the
amendment is not a vote for a tax
on any one ; it merely authorizes a
district to settle school taxation for
These two results are in harmony
with the fundamental principles of
and majority rule.
The Fathers of Texas laid a
splendid foundation for our system
of public schools : it is our duty to
manifest equal intelligence and
patriotism in building on that foun-

chance, and on your ballot scratch

We do not know when Walt
Whitman was a spell-binder, but he
seems to be informed, and in view
of the coming election we submit
My voice is cracked and my lungs
are split,and my throat is on the bum ;
so I will talk by signs till I have a
fit, as we talk to the deaf and dumb.
I've lost the use of my vocal chords
and my wind in my larynx jams;
so I'll get some chalk and a piece of
board and draw you some diagrams.
My tongue is swollen to twice its
size and my lips- - you caa see ftiem
bleed; but still I am able to hypno
tize and|force on you my creed. If I
should die ere we've won the fight
and be laid by the church-yard tree ;
I'll come to your bed at the dead of
night with creaking wings and a robe
of white with my large red halo that
is a fright and urge you to vote for
Non-Resident Land Owners.
We expect to have large excur-
sions from now on and can sell your
land for cash. Write us giving loca-
tion, lowest price and terms. Ed-

Said White to Brown one day in town,
"Siippose we go «-hunting."
Said Brown to White, "Youv'e ttruck it
That's just what I'm a-wanting."
Then filled with joys, these two old boys
Began their preparations;
First figuring out the entire cost,
With careful calculation.
They longed for day, and soon away
The hunters gaily started,
In automobile weight and jugs ornate,
And into the lake they darted.
They pulled and toiled until they were soiled
And in ice water seated.
They watted and cried, "Would we had
Ere we were thus defeated."
They went for force and of course,
Men and teams to their assistance.
They pulled them out with many a shout,
And pitied their existence.
When night was black the sports sneaked
As wilted as their collars,
With one poor duck too small for chuck,
That cost them forty dollars.
And now they go around and blow
With all their banners flying,
While those who hear them wink and lear,
Because they know theyr'e lying.

The White House Settlement.
Located about 5 miles south of
Adrian, a number of new people
from Bloomville, Iowa, are makiifg
a settlement, which from the fact
that all their houses are to be paint-
ed white, is called the "White
House" settlement. There are now
four houses built and more under
construction, each being on adjoining
quarter section farms. These "white
houses" are the bright ideas of D.
M. Hoger, W. E. Baldwin, H. H.
Ritterspach and J. R. Webster. All
these good Iowans are improving
their several properties and after the
first crop of Kaffir and wheat they
raise, will be better Texans. They
are all optimistic, happy and hopeful
and say that the latch string hangs
way down on the outside for any of
their Iowa friends or Texas neighors.
All of these men will break out from
75 to 100 acres of new land for a
crop next year. Others are coming
in soon to ad their might and weight
to the community, and, before any-
one thinks of it, the*"White House"
settlement will be moulding an influ-
ence in the country. Most of these
families have been brought to the
Plains thru the instrumentality of the
D. L. McDonold Land Co.
Dr. F. J. Retterspach, brother of
the one in the "White House" set-
tlement, will locate at Adrian and is
now having material haul id out from
Hereford to erect a six-room cattage.
W. E. Baldwin and D. M. Hoger
of near Adrian were in Hereford
