THE SCHULENBURG STICKER
Scbulenburg, Fayette Co.. Texas, Friday, April 6, 1917
At the citv election held Tues-
day 187 votes were cast, all the
present officers being re-elected
with but one exception. The vote
was light as follows:
Gus Russek .187
Henry Eilers 182
0. B. Schwenke 171
Ernst Russek 115
R. A. Wolters 65
R. A. Wolters who retires as
alderman and city treasurer,
has devoted much of his time to
city affairs for many years. It
is hard to get competent men,
men of affairs and ability, to as-
sume the duties of public office
in a small town, where the pay is
no comparison to the unpleasant
featuresof the office. Mr.Wolters
can congratulate himself, that in
Ernst Russek he turns the job
over to a conscientious, honorable
and capable man, who will be
able to continue the work he has
done Jor so long in the best pos-
sible manner and to the interest
of the majority of the tax payers.
A nice little entertainment was
enjoyed Sunday evening at the
home of Frank Klein, Sr. Fol-
lowing* is a list of the guests:
Libbie Kubala, Annie, Mary and
Julia David, Rosa ^ Friedrich,
Martha Schwartz, of Moravia;
Ix>uisa Klesel, Mary Svrcula,
Emma Hrymcky, Millie Dybala
and Frank Hrynicky, Joe Svr-
cula, Ernest Schwartz, ot' Mora-
via; Eddie David, Fred. S. Berger
and wife, Frank G. Klein, Jr.,
mdwife, John Friedrich and wife
Mid F. G. Berger. It was an en-
joyable affair and the time passed
only too quickly, and we hope all
will remember the next meeting
place. Grapes on the Vine.
Governor Vetoed Free Pass Bill
Austin, Texas.—Governor Fergu-
son Tuesday vetoed the free pass
bill. The pass bill is a measure
which would have permitted ihe
governor, other State officials and
members of the legislature to ride
on free railroad passes.
The -Governor vetoed the free
pass bill because he believes the
free pass proposition is wrong in
principle, while there may be some
reason on the broad ground of pub-
lic policy for making an exception
in cases of railroad employes and
their families, no such reasons ex-
ists for State officials and legislators
to get such transportation.
'"But let us be frank with each
other/' continues the governor.
"Would the people of the State
elect any man governor, lieutenant
governor or a member of the legis-
lature if it was known that at the
qeginning of their term a president
of a railroad company called them
into his office and said: 'Here, Mr.
Governor. Mr. Lieutenant Governor
or Mr. Member of the legislature.-
I want to make you a present of
$300,' and said money was accepted
by any of said officers? A free pass
means free money and people do
not give away moiey for nothing
The governor nor a member of leg-
lature could accept sueh money,
because it would be additional
compensation, which i3 prohibited
by the constitution of the State
which fixes their salaries at so much
and 'no more,' and if the governor
or a member of the legislature
should accept such money it would
be a misapplication and misappro-
priation of public money, and every,
body would agree that the receiv-
ing of such money would be cause
for severely condemning such of-
ficials; and yet this is the effect of
the free pass.''
Reserve Bank Reports Prosperity.
Farming is the most important
business with which Texans are con-
cerned. Therefore the report of the
Federal Reserve bank at Dallas as
to the prosperity existing and to
come fdr the farmers of this State
is a matter of much interest.
The report contains many inter-
esting items chief among which are:
Agricultural conditions through-
out the district are most favorable.

rains during March, which put the
ground in excellent condition for

Too Many Poor Horses and Mules
Are seen on our streets most ev-
eryday. Animals which look too
poor to be able to hardly walk are
driven in harness pulling heavy
wagons or buggies, in which often
big, fat negro or Mexican men ride
Friday of last week we noticed 8
poor animal hitched in front of the
telegraph office which wa« hitched
with another horse t4> a wagon with
a frame on it loaded with baled
hay; one of the poor animal's sides
was rubbed and was bleeding. It
was an old wound as was also the
one under the collar. As we looked
at that poor, helpless creature we
wondered what manner of man was
the owner, it his heart was as cruel
as his treatment to his old horses
which toil without reward and on
such short rations they become
objects of symphathy and subjects
for the officers protection.
No man should be permitted to
ill-use, neglect or abuse a helpless
creature and when and where such
conditions exist, those professing to
be followers of the man of Galllilee
neglect to perform their part of the
work of achristain by not having all
neglected, starved looking animals
reported to the officers or the
Humane society, which has never
failed to render service when called
upon in behalf of man or

The campaign for a decrease of

Attention given to the growing
of sweet potatoes, peanuts, garden

are getting away from the old idea
that cotton is the only mone>crop.
It is noteworthy that the greatest
banking institution of the State
realizes the importance of agricul-
ture to the extent of incorporating
in its monthly review of conditions
so many items concerning that in-
dustry. This i% proof conclusive
that tne banker knows the debt of

Make a Garden
H. M. Mayo, Publicity Agent
over the Souther^ Pacific Rail-
way, sends out the following:
The high cost of living can only
be come largely by producing
food and feed crops. Vegeta-
bles and potatoes for the table;
corn, fodder and hay for the
cattle. 'Every man's back yard
is a possible garden and can help
cut cost. Every farmer's hold-
ings can be made to grow, more
than one crop. Why not make
bigger and better crops and
more crops, putting your money
in your own pocket and more in
the pockets of your neighbors
and merchants? Do it now whi.'e
the opportunity is with you.
Seed is cheap. Let us increase
our production of food and feed
stuffs and1 show the word what
Texas can do. Do it now.
The Garden a Medicine Chest ,
Every man who has a kitchen gar-
den has a medicine chest in his back
yard, although he probably has not
seriously looked upon it as such. In
the onion, for example, he has a
sulphur oil which gives the onion
its reputation as a remedy for in-
somnia and which some physicians
hold as a valuable anodyne for
"rheumatic" pains. There are cer-
tain oils in turnips and parsnips
that have aperient and diuretic
properties. TherS is solanin in the
potato and spinach contains iron.
Cabbage is highly regarded as a
preventive and corrective of scurvy
and scrofula. The composition of
the tomato is chemically so subtle
that it is not yet fully understood;
although several active principles
have been isolated and names
given to them. Thus the man who
eats freely of vegetables is taking
medicine without paying for a pre-
scription and without being both
ered by the high cost of drugs. In
the normal individual the instinc
tive appetite automatically regu-
lates the size of the "dose".—From
