factory for Ucaumont. The amount estimated for the
pr.tpoeed industry liaa been subscribed or i.s in prospecc.
broom factories and methods. The Chamber of Com
crco this year distributed broom corn seed In order tí
determine the growing possibilities In this section oud
the results obtained offer convincing evidence of tho
practicability and profit of growing broom corn In the
Beaumont country. Therefore the following corres-
pondence and comment will ,be Interestong to our peo-
ple since it serves to suggest the value of a broom fac-
tor}' to a community In not only giving employment to
labor in the factory but enabling the growing or a
profitable crop by the farmers.
A correspondent, writing from Oklahoma City, on
Sept. 22, says:
"Broom corn reached a high mark tn Oklahoma
tho past week. Tho yuallty of the brush this year I#
much better than previous years on account of the fa-
vorable weather to euro It.
"Tho high price was reached at Sayre when A. A.
Kahon cold his entire crop of five acres for $150 per
ton. This Is realizing $120 an acre off of $15 land. It
wne claimed that brush brought the same price at
"At Ouyman the price reached $140 per ton and a
large amount of It changed hands during tho past
"Shattuck, which for two seasons held tho world's
record for the largest yield from any singlo point, and
which produced a lot cf the brush this year marketed
a large amount of excollont brush this week at $110
The editor of the Beckham County News, published
at Elk City, Oklahoma, took Issue with the correspond-
ent and proceeds to give some additional information
about brooom corn that should interest the people of
Southwest Texas, whoro It is believed as much or more
can be grown per acre than in Oklahoma. Here la
what the Elk City editor had to say:
"The reporter who sent In tho above overlooked
the largest inland broom corn market In the world.
Elk City claims that distinguished honor and our buy
ers pay the highest prices obtainable anywhere in Ok-
lahoma. ^ \
•\f, F, Lewis of Brantley sold his broom corn in
EUl City for $175 per ton. Arthur Booker of Brantley
received $180 per ton for hi? crop and C. I. Caddei,
within five miles of Oranlte, sold his crop of broom
corn In Elk City for $1S0 per ton.

Governor Johnson is quoted as saying that he
would count life a .iucce«s If he could provide a com-
f irtable living for tho^e dependent upon him, be sur-
rounded by congenial friends and write one book that
would live a hundred years. What a high Ideal of
life! How It stands out from anions the careers of
ifi> e<l and selfishness that have for their one alrm th'¡
hope of personal gain and the gratlflcatlin of selfish
ambitions.—Wills Point Chronicle.

less human beings now daily walk the streets of evory
city and hamlet In the laad.
Hence, startling Is the Inforumtlon which comes
from Boston, the center of learning, that one of the
best known ptiyslelajw of that city has declared oper-
ations tvr appendicitis Is a form of surgical craze which
the law sh.iuld declare criminal.
Hear him: "An operation for appendicitis should
be called a criminal operation an J as <uch should be
prohibited tog I have been following tho records
of appendicitis operations ever i-lnce the craze for thN
form of surgery started, and 1 confidently believe that

Om result of the advertising that the S >uthern
Texaj fair has so far received has been to bring lnqtilry
from a school teacher as t<> the best methods to set
about teaching htr pupils to ra'ne llowers ajul to beau-
tify the school grounds. If this fair had no other ef-
fect than to start a campaign for the beautlflcatlon of
the public school grounds of the county, It would be
well worth while. .Special premiums hav« oe^n offered
to school children and to the lupils of the schools ai
a whole in the floral department and In the floral
parade, and the pupils In the county schools should
enter for the. e prize . Perhaps the showing made
this year will not be so satisfactory as desired, be-
cause little has been done in this tMrcotlon in th-j past,
and so thore Is no foundation, upon which to work,
but this fair this year will be the start and will serve
to lay the foundation.
In some sections of L>ul.-dana they hav.> what they
term the school Improvement league, and news com-
ing frotr that state tells of a young lady who Is visit-
ing the oountry schools under the auspices of this
league and delivering lectures upon the beautlflcatlon
of the school grounds, incidentally organllsag the pu-
pils Into a branch of the league. This Is a great work
and will mean much for the future of the state. There
Is a growing love of beauty all through the south-
west, which should be fjstered by every means.—

MU. BRYAN AND THE IIOV&TO.V I'OST.
The forthcoming issue of Mr. Bi'yjtn's Common*}
contains Mr. Bryan's answer to the Houston Post. Mr.
Bryiui says In part:
'The editor of the Houston Pist is in distress. He
is deeply grieved as well as sorely disappointed at Mr.
Bryan's refusal to allow friends' to arrange a debate
between Senator Bailey and himself. Mr. Bryan has
given his reasons for believing that a Joint discussion

The Pout does not Impute a lack of courage to Mr.
Bryan a some do' (Many thanks.) 'But it does doubt
the soundness of the reason he gives for avoiding the
"There are several other reasons which the Post
may discover if it searches dllllgently. For instance
U may find that It would be a reflection upon Mr.
Bailey's opponents In Texas to assume that there Is
no one there competent to represent thoee who dif-
fer with them. And again tho Post, but for its In-
fatuation, might suspect that Senator Ealley does not
represent all the people of Texas on the question of
free lumber. What reason has the Poet for believ-
ing that the dctnocratlc congressmen of Texas (all
as Mrs. Partington but one voted for free lumber misrepresent their
constituents? Is there any reason to be\levo that as
a rule a senator Is more likely than a congressman to

It is said.
According to the attorneys, there is
nothing to the case. They say that a

There was some discussion, when the

Ford that if he didn't pay the fine,
he, the prisoner, would inform the of-

They say there Is no foundation tJ
