Denison has a side walk spitting

It lo k.s like Texas will have a gain

There are over 260,000 acres of
land in Smith can my that are not
in cultivation. Probably 75 per cent
of it can be turned into good farms.
Smith colíniy is one ol' the best
■watered counties |n the state, and
Tyler is one of the best watered cities.
-Come to Smith county and 'be happy.
When a man after twenty y¿ars'
service has nothing to offer tela peo-
ple to gain their support except a
smell at the pork barrel, it Is a pity,
an awful pity.
Smith county is the only county ia
Texas where there u «orne kind of a

we do agree with the senator when

good farms end yotf have a country
fit to receive God's richest blessings."
A Tyler citizen is trying to get a
young horse thief pardoned from the
(penitentiary, claiming that he was
temporarily insane when he annexed
the wrong harte, and that his ail-
ment will became permanent If he 1
not released. The question now
arises: If a vfoung man temporarily
insane will Bteal one horse, how
many will he take if he becomes
permanently afflicted? It wtlll per-
haps be cheaper to keep the young
man locked tip than to lock up all
the horses in the <Jountry.—Jackson-

trying to route these fellows from
their warm place, which is a position
favored in the laws of the country and
they are squealing like pigs and bawl-

We wish Roosevelt were a Democrat,
he is good enough to be one.
These fellows who have the award-

The ceuxnua places the population of
Iowa at 2,224,771. This is a decrxtse
of 7028 from the 1900 census. Iowa
is one of the few states'of the Union
that shows a decrease in population.
A sflory coines from Houston that a

Up in Kansas City, William Volker,

Over in iShreveport. the other day,
several thousand visitors to the fair
were very much disappointed because
the aviation stunt was not pulled off.
The fact of the business is, the avia-
tor, was a Frenchmau with an un-
pronounceable name, got into a
game of craps and was arrested and
placed in jail. It is difficult to Im-
agine the type 'of man who would
prefer a game of craps to making a
flight in an airship. Anyway, the vis-
itors to the fair that day didn't see

The city of Waco has at last waked
up to the fact that natural advant-
ages will not make a city, nor keep a
city from going backward. Judging
from the picture of the Cotton Palace
building in yesterday's New.-. Waco
(has done a handsome thing In this
structure, Let us aU wish our newly
awakened sister city God speed in the
race for development.
Just the reverse is the case in New
Jersey. In that state the democratic
ticket, headed by Woodrow Wilson,
stand's for just the things and
measures for which the Republican
ticket stand in New York, and the
Republican ticket in New Jersey ia
much the counterpart of the Demo-
cratic ticket in New York.

THAT BOUNDARY DISPUTE.
New Mexico claims that Texas has
extended its boundary from two to
three and thrtee-fofurths miles oven-
onto her territory. Uncle Dick !Bon-
nor has always said Texas was so big
she had to double up her arms to
keep from lying on Arkansas and
Louisiana. We would like to know
what he has to say about her north-
western boundary since New Mexico
has registered her complaint. Maybe
in getting her corporoeiiy out of the
way of Arkansas and Louisiana, Texas
lias been obliged to overlap a little
of New Mexico, We suggest to Uncle
Dick If the question comes up before
the next legislature that he make
it plain to that body, or any body
else, that Texas has got to be big, and
if New Mexico is located so near
the eastern boundary of Arkansas
and l uisiana that Texas lia not
room to lie between them, and that
youngster will simply have to move
back out of her way or suffer the
