Colonel Lyon will be able to date his

it Is probably Ju*t as well to wait un-

The next year will see more diversi-
fication in Denton County than In
years. Planting wheat Is not diversi-
fication any more than planting all
eottoln 1b. But diversification is the
planting of many things and not put-
ting all of your eggs in one basket.—
Denton Record and Chronicle.
The farmers who are practicing di-
versification are the ones who have
the growing bank accounts, while
those who depend on cotton alone are
continually wondering If they are go-
ing to make both ends meet—Fort
Diversification is the only kind of
farming that Insures success. It comes
only after education but Texas farm-
ers are beginning to take their lessons
to heart and tbe whole state is profit-

| The Herald likes tbe way Col,
./"ampbell talks, and. while it opposed
; him before the primaries, U stands
| ready, as it believes every paper In
the state does, to support him In every
j effort to give the state a good, clean
'administration. There Is much that
needs to be done, and the Herald hopes
to see these things accomplished dur
i Ing the Campbell administration.—!
j One of the embarrassments the of-
ficials meet with In performing their
_ duty Is the opposition which some-
1 times comes from those who opposed
their election. Partylsm In this coun-
1 try runs so high that when a man of
one party is elected the organ of the
other party feels called tipon to dls-
j parage his every effort and to criti-
cise it. not for the purpose of making
him a better official but to destroy
him and the party he represents. We
really have but one party in Texas as
j far as votes go. but we now have Just
I as harsh fighting In that party as If
i the members of It belonged to differ-
ent organizations. And the rule has
been, wh^h the representative of one
faction or element of the party Is
elected, for the newspapers of all oth-
Jer factions and elements to at once
i commence to decry the work of the
official who has been elected by the
, triumphant element. Col. Campbell
I was opposed by three candidates.
Hence, there were three elements of
the party which were not highly pleas-
ed with his nomination. It Is the duty
of the citizen, and It Is the duty of the
fair newspaper to aid the successful
j candidate in every way in -buildin# up
jthe public service, which can be done
jonly by the fair administration of the
| laws. The citizen who does not aid the
: man who Is trying to give the people a
~~J" government Is not a friend of the
One of the most serious problems
with which the next legislature will
have to deal Is the placing of Texas on
a cash basis. There will doubtless he
a number of remedies offered by the
legislative doctors and the one whose
plan offers an effective cure will make
a statewide reputation for himself.—•
Wills Point Chronicle.
That Is correct. It Is a business
proposition, however, and must be
looked at from a business basis. At-
tempting to create a remedy and at
tbe same time manufacture political
buncombe will not win.
Newspapers In Texas that have
worked valiantly hi an effort to get

Denison has seven miles of model
dirt road built by the citizens of the
town and the farmers along the road-
bed. This Is an object lesson and this
month the road overseers of the coun-
ty will meet In Sherman and drive
over this model road. Denison is alive
to her every opportunity as is evi-
denced by the road work, civic im-
provements and the eagerness with
which she goes after everythine cal-
culated to make Denison a better town.
The following from the Manufactur-
ers' Record speaks volumes: "The
Denison Cotton Mill Company is com-
pleting the installation of the addi-
tional machinery contracted for sev-
eral months ago. It ordered 132 looms,
pickers, cards, drawing, clothroom
machinery, etc., in order to enable the
mill to manufacture cloth, its previous
product having been yarns. There are
12.135 spiudles In the plant. Seven-
teen operatives' cottages have been
erected to provide bomes for the ad-
anizations into i di,l°nal employes required." This cot-
! ton mill helps Denison. It's a flower
j show this week, a stock show last, a
j chicken show the week before, in fact,
j we would not be surprised to hear of
them holding a Sunday school con-
vention no*t. Denison is to he com-
mended for her pluck and enterprise.
We think we see in all this the ener-
getic, never-tiring work of Tom Lar-
In Vyesterday's Enterprise was pub-
lished editorially an article on the ed-
; icatiop of road builders, taken from
the Stl Louis Republic. Every sugges-
! tion made Is a wise one and Enter
prise hopes to have the matter taken
np by \ the Texas Legislature at Its
next session. There Is now no more
Important work before the people of
Texas than the construction of com-
l>etent highways and there should be
men specially trained for that work.
I^et us have a department of pnbllc
highway engineering established at
both the State University and the Ag-
ricultural and Mechanical College.
Then let us amend our laws so as not
! only to permit, but to compel the work-
ing of all short-term state convicts on
the county public roads. In this man-
ner we can settle, same time assure to
grand old Texas the best public roads
to be found In the Union.—Cleburne
Now is the time to use the split-log
drag to effect. Why not say to your
neighbor, "Let's construct one of those
things today and try It on the road
alongside our farms?" Your effort
might be the starting of ft general
move towards a system of better
roads in thiB community, which Is
most certainly needed.—Howe Herald.
Denton needs good roads and so do
all the other towns of the county.
Should there be a bond issue there
will be an equitable division of the
money, and in the meantime the btisl-
ness men of tbls place should get busy
! and with the assistance of the farmers
near this place get things In shape
that the best roads In the whole state
will lead to Denton.—Denton News.
The merchants of Mineola have
finally waked up to their own best in-
terests and have combined In a co-op-
erative effort to draw the country
trade to their towns by keeping the
roads In good condition. They adver-
tise this fact along with their goods In
the Mineola Courier, as follows:
, "The roads are being repaired and
will be kept In good condition, and we
will deem it a favor if you will notify
any one of ub of nny repairs needed,
which will be attended to as Boon as
The merchants of other Texas towns
