The people of Denlson have the fu-
ture of the town In their own hands.
They have a splendid foundation on
which to build. Nature was lavish
with her gifts. It only remains for
these advantages to be utilized for
Denlson to become even greater than
her fondest advocate ever hoped. The
people of Denlson have depended too
much on outside aid and not* enough
on themselves. There is Indication
of a change In this respect and if It
comes It will be the dawning of a
is a remarkable fact that no Industry
intelligently followed admits of fail-
ure iu Texas. All the people have to
do Is to apply themselves to the oppor-
tunities at hand and their reward is
greater than In any other locality.-—

valuable to be given without recom-

That would be In direct violation of

trusts the News does not Intend to In-
sinuate that anything of that kind has
been done In Texas.

subject of good roads—and their lack.
The Quickest way Imaginable to get
up a fight with a farmer of Kansas or
Missouri would be to intimate that he
was not kind to the women of his fam-
ily. One would not find better hus-
bands and fathers and sons than one
will find on the farms of these three
Western states. The Western farmer
Is "good to his folks." But Is he as
thoughtful as he ought, to be when he
will give heed to a few dollars In taxes
and keep "mother" at home for long
continued spells and make it Impossi-
ble for neighboring friends to "drop
in" because the roads are too bad for
traveling?. Doubtless there are very
few of the country people of these
•states who would consciously balance
a few dollars of added tax money
against the social pleasures of their
households. But the effect Is exactly
the same as If they were designedly
The man of the farm can "throw a
leg" over hlerhorse and splash through
water and mud to go wher^ he wishes
to go. Such traveling is i not vert*
pleasant, but the man can accomplish
it, and he does not mind It much. With
the women of the farm, and especially
with the elderly women, the case is
different. Bad roads, combined with
had weather, cut them off from the
pleasaim interchange of visits, deny
them tne solace and the sociability of
church (and "meetings" and remove
the nearest towns from them as if the
towns were in a far country.
It Is really a wonder that the moth-
ers and wives and daughters on the
Missouri and Kansas farms have not
"revolted" long ago. If they should
do so and If they would enter the good
roads movement there would be left
very little opposition from the men,
and there would be a sudden end to
the foolishness of merely wishing for
good roads without, providing the
money to pay for them.—Kansas City

If every paper In Texas would urge

object lesson that will put more of

The Honey Grove Citizen thinks the

an Inexperienced agent had made
agreements with the Standard Oil
Company which resulted In the oust-

from Texas; that after Its reorganiza-

obtained agreements with the Stand-
ard to respect the laws of all other
states in which his company was do-i
lng business, but that despite this
agreement the Standard had unwar-
rantably Interfered In the affairs of
the company—a company# which the
Standard absolutely controlled. The
salient facts obtained ire these:
"1. The Standard owns a majority
of the stock of the Waters-Pierce, the
stock being held until 1904 In Mr.
Pierce's name and subsequently in the
name of M. M. Van Buren.
