We are in receipt of a letter with
check inclosed from B. F. Loftin of
Rosebud. Mr. Loftin says, "Please
continue the old home paper, I have
been away from Madison County
three years but it still seems like
home." He says crops in his section
are looking fine. ,
J. A. Outlaw of Trinity was through
the city last week in route to Calvert.
Mr. Outlaw was here some two years
ago as superintendent of the Western
Public Service Co.
Misses Grace Gene Vencent and
Lottie Vencent of Eagle Lake have
visiting Mr. and Mrs. A. K. McAfee
the past several days.
The cotton flea has made his ap-
pearance in the Brazos bottom in
Brazos County in large numbers and
the farmers are making preparations
to fight them. No such infestions
have been reported in Madison county
yet. It would be well however for
our farmers to be in readiness for the
fight if they should show up in this
section again. Some years ago it
looked as though the flea would ruin
the cotton crop in Madison county
but they did not stay long enough to
do much damage. u "%• i'i ^

There is so much pleasure in pub-
lishing a newspaper that some ed-
itors are refusing money as a re-
ward for their service, it is revealed
by and exchange. Here's the voice of
a Dakota editor which fairly gurgles
with a joy of working without
"It takes wind to run a newspaper.
It takes gall to run a newspaper.
It takes scintillating acrobatic imagi-
nation and a half a dozen white shirts
and a railroad pass to run a news-
paper. But money—heavens to betsy
and six hands around, who ever
needed money to run a newspaper?
Kind words are the medium of ex-
change and do the business for the
editor—kind words and church soc-
ial tickets. • \
"When you see an editor with mo-
ney, watch him. He will be paying
bills and disgrace the profession.
Make him trade it out. He loves to
swap. Then when you die, after
having stood around and sneered at
his little jimcrow, be sure and have
your wife send in for three copies
by one of your children and when she
reads the generous and touching no-
tice about you forewarn her to send
fifteen cents to the editor.
"The editor knows it and what he
wants is heartfelt thanks. Then he
can thank the printers and they can
thank the grocer. Don't worry about
the editor. He has a charter from the
state to act as a doormat for the
"He'll get the paper out some-
how and stand up for you when you
run for office, and lie about your
pigeonfoot daughter's wedding and
blow your pig-footed boys when they
get a $4.00 a week job, and weep over
your shriveled soul when it's released
from your grasping body and smile
at your giddy wife's second marriage.
He'll get along. The Lord only knows
how, but the editor will get there

Look at the bottom, look inside
.... and listen to it!
When you buy an electric refrigera-
tor, do a bit of investigating on your
own. Look under the cabinet, look
carefully inside it, and, above all things,
listen to it.
When you look under the cabinet
do you find moving parts of machin-
ery or no machinery at all? In the
General Electric Refrigerator, you'll
notice at once that all the models
are up-on-legs. This means an easy
job cleaning under them. And it also
means that all the machinery is safe-
ly sealed away in the air-tight steel
casing which you see mounted on the
top of the cabinet.
Look inside. Is there really ample
food space? You will find in the
General Electric Refrigerator that the
chilling chamber is amazingly com-
pact. It actually takes little more
space than the trays in which your
ice is frozen.
Then listen. This you must do. We
want you to judge for yourself the
quietness of this remarkable refriger-
ator. Come in today. Time payments
can be arranged, if you wish.
