Four Issues One Month
From time to time there have
arisen those who proclaim that
America is speedily drifting to
the possession of an aritocracy
of the classes and the serfdom
of the masses, the rapid accu-
mulation of wealth and the leis-
ure and privileges naturally fol-
lowing being the prime exciting
causes for the rather excited
•warnings. Now comes one who

many. and increasing societies

ning of a very real aristocracy:'
In his treatment of the subject,
"Ex-Attache," in the Chicago
Tribune, distinguishes between
aristocracracy and nobility in the
statement that nobiiitjr. implies
titular distinction but not neces-
sarily'lineage, wheas aristocra-
cy indicates apcestry but not
biliary titles. Arguing from
such premise he takes it that
there is growing up an aristocra-
cy in America; and that an aris^-
tocracy is not in any way in-
compatible with Democratic in-
tutions. In the
the organizations of societies of
descendants of patriots argues
nothing of the assumption that
it merely indicates a pe-
culiar American characteristic
entirely divorced from the mat-
ter of lineage. As to the bene-
fits, it is to be sure, a very com-
mendable matter that the chil-
dren's children unto many gen-
erations should be taught to up-
hold the name which an illustri-
ous forebear has made famous.
It would seem to argue that such
an attitude necessarily would
lead to a higher standard of
character and citizenship lest it
be the disgraceful-record of one
to besmirch an escutcheon which
had been left so brilliant. But if
a man is not a good citizen for
own saice, and if he keeps
not. his honor unsullied for hon-
or's own sake, all the countless
thousands of ancestors each of
us has had since Adam* fell into
that fatal deep sleep in the gar-
dens-will avail him nothing. An
aristocracy other than the aris-
tocracy of the individual is im-
possible in America. Happily
ery man makes his own destiny,
not necessarily in the sense which
has so often been charged, that
the opportunities for money mak-
ing are equal $nd that "first the
man makes the money then the
first place money makes the man," .but in
the finer sense the real worth of
the man is the only thing that
counts. It makes very little dif-
ference who or what*" were a
man's grandparents or that he
is known to have possessed such
relatives—the point is, how much
he as an individual is worth to
the world in which he lives. And
something so delightfully amus-
ing about this; ancestry proposi-
tion. The proudest of them
cestors who stuck fast to one
spot and had all the marriage
and birth certificates recorded in
one place or thereabouts—hence
the ease with which they are
able to follow grandfather and
great-grandfather with a formi-
dable line'of further removed
forefathers. It is all very grat-
ifying, but it is impossible to get
away from the fact that the peo-
ple of thie world were rocked in
a common race cradle and that
each andevprjr man John
today got his family start at the.
same time toe-rest of them did.
Every man is a son of Adam and
every woman a daughter of Eve.
It makes very little difference
where you loose the track of tfie
fox if you are in at the finish.
Senator Bailey would have been
in better company if he had stood
with Senator Culberson, the Dem-
ocratic leader, on the iron ore
tariff, instead of with Senator
Aldrich. the Republican leader.
Even his'best friends, thos^who
stood by him in his transactions
mth Standard Oil, must admit
this to be true. —Mount Pleasant

New Hotel Opens For Busi-
Mr. A. C. Lewis has opened
the New Hotel and is now ready
to take care of the public. Mr.
Lewis is assisted in the hotel busi-
ness by his wife and daughters
and it is an assured fact that they
will make a great success in this
basiness in Crosbyton.
In the past few months it has
developed that the hotel accom-
modations were not equal to the
demand and it was arranged to
have this new hotel, which will
prove a blessing to the traveling
public and an asset to the town
of Crosbyton of which we are
all proud. ... ,

Milam and his little six-year-old
son wereTmrned to* a crisp Sat-
urday night about 11 o'clock on
the farm of W. M. Linville, about
eighteen miles west of Hereford.

Miss Viola Linville, rwho had
been visiting neighbors, came in
the front door and caught sight
of a sheet of flame in the upstairs
room, coming out of the^ lamp^
Miss Linville screamed and
awoke Milam, who jumped up
and grabbed the lamp. Nailed
screened windows prevented
him throwing the flaming lamp
outdoors, so he called to Miss
Linville to open the front door,
and started down the stairs with
the lamp in his hand.
At the landing a terrific ex-
plosion occurred'and Milam fell
in his tracks without uttering a
word. His body and the house
was saturated with the burning
oil and ^ll efforts to reach the
unconscious man or his little son
were unavailing:' The house
burned quickly with its content^.
We are told that the -value of
the peanut crop for 1908 was
$12,000,000, This is an interest*
ng statement in ifself, by reason
of the modeaf-y of the /.pfi&n&t;1
We assume, naturally, that most
of this value is munched out of
exjstence at the circus and the
ball game. Not exactly; because
of the fact that there are by-pro-
ducts in the peanut crop almost
as valuable as the nut itself, con-
sidered as an edible For example
there is peanut butter, that the
mysterious Mr. Waffles of the
Telegram has made locally fa-

peanut oil and peanut meal.
There are peanut by-pro'ducts for
feeding live stock—a hay that is
peanut forage that sometimes
takes .the place of corn, and a
feed madefrom-the chopped vi
and kernels that is said to be a
fine "balancing ration" for dairy
cows and for fattening hogs. In
the matter of creating values the

It may be interesting to know
that the peanut was not eom-
jnercially important in this coun-

velopment in the approximately*
forty years,that have elapsed will

to shame. But the peanut is not
boastful. Though the faddists
have tried to confer glory upon
it, it pursues the even tenor of
its way, bringing joy and thirst
