A few of us, here In Smith cou'nty,
¡have been endeavoring to bring about
co-operation of the people in the in-
terest of general development of the
county. The demagogue is now on
the stump asking the people to elect
him to office because he stand® iu
the way of such efforts. Such men
are a menace to the pi'1!)lie, for they
kindle prejudice and division where

Words nobly and fitly spoken. The
slanderer is the most contemptible of
all God's creatures. There are men
playing polities In Texas who would
slander the Savior of men If He were
on earth. Old Politician has known
Felix McCord intimately for twenty
one years and this te the first intima
tion he has ever had that the Tyler
gentleman was even a drinking man
But Hurt, the greatest of all Texaa
Judges, was the victim of the slander-
er; W. L. Davidson wns covered 'with
the slime of «lander In his campaigns
and the lamented John M. Henderson
was pursued by emissaries of the
foul brood. Hurt was a gallant Con
federate soldier, Henderson was
knightly defender of the flag of Tex'
as and Davidson rode with the de
fenders oí the flag of the lost cause,
Old Politician has no brief to defend
Judge Felix MoOord, but lakes pleas

Tyler Courier-Times, "the report is
wholly untrue." Again, the Courier-

SLANDERING JUDGE McCORD.
Tyler has a newspaper, the Dally
Courier-Times. It is an old and Influ-
ential newspaper and it is edited by
a very .oble state wide democrat. The
following editorial Is taken from the
"A few days ago we received a let-
ter from a lawyer friend iu a distant
part of the state saying It Is being re-
ported there that Judge McCord Is
a drunkard. The writer wished to
know the truth about It. We, of
course wrote him, that the report
■was wholly untrue. We, are poor,
and may always be so. We are in
the private walks of life and may
continue to seive In the ranks. We
are ambtttou's and would like to get
to the front, hut, gentlemen of Tex-
as, before wo would slander a good,
honest, capabel, unpretentious, noble
man like Judge McCord to promote,
either ourselves or any friend of ours

Gov. T. M. Campbell is making
good as governor of Texas. Those
who abuse 'him are following an old
habit oí abusing men whom they can-
not control. The abuse Hogg, Cul-
berson, Sayers and Lanham, breaking
the heart of the latter. Tom Camp-
bell will go down 1n history along
with Hogg as having t>een a servant
of the people, standing four square
for the platform demanda.
Judge Foindexter's prohibition rec-
ord stands about thus: He was for
state-wide prohibition by ooTiStiUi-
tlonal amendment in 1S87. Five years
later, in 1S92, he bolted! the demo-
cratic ticket and supported George
Clark and a platform which In part
read as follows: "We believe In the
right of local self-government untram-
eled by the dictates of any central
"We, therefore oppose all sumptu-
ary laws which vex the citizen and
Interfere with his individual liberty."
Four years later we And1 him sup-
porting a paltform which contained
the following: "We oppose all sumpt-
uary 'legislation, no matter under
what disguise aad demand that the
citizen be left free to pursue his own-
happiness without unnecessary Inter-
ference from the government."
That five years later he la renting
a building in the city of Claburne for
a saloon for throe years and until lo
cai option closed the the place. That
five yeais later, in May 1908, in a
speech In Waxahnchie, he said: "I do
not know how Senator Bailey stands
on state-wide prohibition at present
but I suppose ho stands about like
your humbly servant does. We were
both for prohibition by constitution-
al amendment In 1887, but since then
I have seen the effectlvo workings
of local option and 1 am now oppos-
od to state-wide prohibition and In
favor of local option and suppose ho
(Bailey) Is too."
And the Bame year he told Sterling
P. Strong, "1 will have nothing to do
with It," meaning submission.
As Sam Jones used to say "Oh,
Record, Record, Record!"

dered a tribe of Indians which was
before congress for approval.
We receive these ugly Incidents of
corruption and charges of corruption
not to lament the bad conditions of
the country 'but to show that there Is
an awakening of the public consci
enoe. Of course all that is wrong
may not have come to light, but we
are of the belief that conditions are
better now than they have been In
the past and in that past little ever
came to light, whereas there Is much
at evil doing come to light now.
We see no cause to dlspair but
every reason to feel encouraged, be-
cause the time is not far diistan
when the boodler, the grafter and
the briibe giver and taker will be
whipped from every place of public
The main danger to the growth of
the public conscience along this line
is that political adventurers, seeking
notoriety and public favor wtll spring
charges which have no foundation In
fact, and thus discredit charges
which are really true. It Is to be
hoped the same spirit which causes
the public to condemn the grafter,
will cause it to condemn the political
faker and adventurer.

NEGLECTING OF THE
Rev. (reorge W. I'ruett, D. D., of
Dallas, at the Palacios Baptist en
campment discussed the paramount
Importance of etsabli9hin,g the fami
ly altar In each home. He said that
much of the sin and extravagance
now dwelling in many homes could
be traced to the neglect and absence
of the family altar. In his own town,
he said, fully $¡¿,000,000 wore invest-
ed alone in automobiles; that many
individuals of limited means who had
false ideas of right and honestly
were struggling to maintain their
places in the ranks of society high-
vers and that many of them liad
actually mortgaged their cottage
homes in order to purchase automo-
biles and that the family altar does
not dwell under the same roof with
such reckless extravagance. He
strongly Impressed upon his hearers
the Importance of establishing and
rigidly maintaining the family altar
as the remedy for correcting sins and
evils In society and for banishing
much of the heartaches, poverty and
dishonesty which now dwell in many
them before you go away.—'Beau

wealth by a number of Unltod StateB
senators. On the heels of tilla an in-
vestigation into certain transactions
of one of the senators from Texas
was had at Austin. Soon one of the
Hearst papers printed letters of Mr.
Archlbold to Senator For a leer of

that Standard Oil was using money
most lavishly upon senators and con

of Mississippi and of Illinois elected

BEST SPRING TOHIC
Every one should take a tonic in the Spring; our systems require
iL The change in the seasons produces a like change in our bodies,
and more is required of the blood, from which source we receive phys-
ical nourishment and strength, at this particular time than at any other.
Almost every one feels bad in the Spring. Some have no partic-
ular sickness, but are debilitated, run-down and weak, and their
systems are in a general state of disorder. This deranged condition of
tne health is due to weak, anaemic blood; the circulation is infected
with impurities which have diminished its natural nourishing powers,
and the body is suffering from deficient blood nutriment. The refuse
and impurities which naturally accumulate in our systems are not
properly expelled in Winter, because those members whose duty it is
to perform this work of drainage do not receive sufficient stimulation
from outdoor exercise, and therefore grow dull and sluggish in their
action; nor is the skin as active in eliminating waste maters in cold
weather because the pores are not so open as in warm seasons.
These Winter accumulations pollute the blood and largely destroy
its nutritive qualities, and when Spring comes, and everything takes
on new life, and we change our method of living, the circulation is so
weakened that it is unable to supply the increased demands of the
system. Then we suffer from weakness, nervousness, loss of appetite,
lassitude, etc. There is a constant worn-out feeling, sleep is not
refreshing, and we do not feel able to perform the ordinary duties of
•Jaily life. This disordered condition demands the use of a tonic, and
it should be one which has the additional qualities of a first class blood
purifier, for to restore health and strength the blood must be pure.#>
The healthful botanical ingredients of which S. S. S. is composed,
and the method of combining and preparing them so that they build up
and strengthen every portion of the body, make it the best of all Spring
tonics. S. S. S. is Nature's medicine, free from strong mineral mix-
tures and made entirely of the healing, cleansing juices and extracts of
roots, herbs and barks; a safe and pleasant tonic for persons of any age.
S. S. S. is not only the best Spring tonic, but its ability and worth
& a genuine blood purifier is
universally recognized. It builds
up the depleted system in the true
way, by purifying the blood and
supplying an increased amount of
nourishment to every portion of
the body. S. S. S. removes all
accumulations from the circula-
tion, enriches and purifies the
blood and overcomes the unpleas-
ant physical ailments that always
come with Spring. It rids the
body of that tired feeling, im-
proves the appetite, reinvigorates
every fibre and tissue of the body,
and imparts healthful energy to
all who are run-down. The body
cannot be strong and well if the
Mood is weak or impure, and no
tonic should be used which does
not thoroughly cleanse the circulation. If you select S. S. S. as your
tonic this Spring you will experience better results and more vigorous
health than ever before, because it will make your blood "just righL "
Insist on getting S. S.S., there is no other "just as good." ' «

PRETTY GOOD EVIDENCE.
I have used & S. & and found it to
be an excellent blood purifier and
tonic. MjP blood was weak and
impure, and as a result my system
became very much run down and de-
bilitated I lost twenty or more
pounds in weight, had no appetite and
was in bad shape. Seeing S. S. S. ad-
vertised I began its use, and am well
pleased with the results after using it
for some little while. From 139
pounds to 165 is pretty good evidence
of merit on the part of S. S. S., and aa
to my appetite, it is superb. My
system and general health have been
wonderfully built up, and I do not
hesitate to give S. S. S. the credit for
it H. MARTIN.
