The proposition made Tuesday
by the city council to the school
trastoes. that if they (the trus-
tees) would furniah $25. the city
would furnish the material and
do the work and put in an arte-
sian water hydrant in every room
in the building, is certainly a very
liberal one. It means a gift of
from $75 to $100 on the part of
the city. The required $25 will
certainly be forthcoming.
Since the secret meeting in
Dallas a few days ago there aeema
to be a concerted renewal of anti
amtation. The question is Bet-
tied in McKinney and Collin
county. Lets submit to the ma-
jority. That is democratic.
For Pair Pants Won in Daniel's
•I.E. Caruth of Weston, who
was in town Tuesday, had his
measure taken for the pair of hne
tailor-made pants he recently won
in J. F. Daniel's prize corn con-
test. Hia prize ear weighed 2
pounds and 6 ounces. He will
present Mr. Daniel with 50 ears
of corn which the latter will ex-
hibit at the St. Louis World's
Fair. The 50 ears weigh a bush-
el, where it takes 120 ordinary
sised ears to we'gh the same. Mr.
Caruth is certainly entitled to the
jhonor of being the champion corn
producer in Collin county. The
Democrat is proud to number him
among its big list of Weston
