Is this an age of "short pots?"
It seems so. When you buy 50
pounds of flour, you get but 48
pounds sack and all, and weighing
that at the mill while the flour was
as full of moisture as the miller could
get it. When you buy a pound of
butter, you usually get 14 ounces
paper and any. "They say" butter
makers do not expect to make a pro*
fit on the butter itselff, but rather on
the salt that is put in it. When you
buy a pound of meat, you must take
the bone, skinny parts and scraps.
When you buy a cord of wood, (ex-
cuse this for the Panhandle) you get
a stick feet long instead of 4 feet.
When you buy an "all wool" suit,
half or less is cotton. When a mer-
chant buys circulation and space, he
gets "short potted" nearly every
pop. Some newspaper makers hold a
direct succession from Annanias and
Saphira' down to the present day,
and it is only by the forbearance of
the Almighty that they are not struck
by lightning. Just why a newspaper
man will tell the truth about every-
thing else, (when he has to) but will
persistly lie about his circulation in
order to "short pot" the merchant
and advertiser, is one of the seven
wonders, for every body knows he's

MAMMOTH PREMIUM LIST.
Attracting Exhibitors Never Be*
Th« preliminary catatonia, wMeh
has been Issued by the National Faed-
1 era' and llrveders' Association 'or tlM
11911 show to U h«id mt Fort Worth,
March 1S-23, Inclusive. contains about
1500 premiums valued at approximately
ISO,WW. and la on* of the moat crodlta*
bl*> ciaaairtraAtona booklets ever pub*
llahed by tit la association. It covers
practically all breeds of livestock com-
mon to the southwest, and also adnlts
many foreign breed*. Print are offer-
ed for virtually all classes of breeding
and beef cattle, hogs, sheep, horses
and mules, and valuable special pre-
miums are also offered by the various
horse, cattle and swine associations,
packing houses and individuals. This
enormous premium list is attracting
exhibitors who have never before
shown stock at Fort Worth, and the
number of exhibits at the 1*11 show
will reach the eight thousand mark,
or an Increase ot two thousand over
last year. With the advent of the Fat
8tock Snow sixteen years ago. south-
western stockmen realised that some-
thing must be done to improve their
stock. In order that they might more
successfully compete with their north-
ern neighbors, consequently thousands
of dollars were expended In Importing
pure-bred bulls, stallions and boars,
which were scattered all over the
country; and with this new blood,
southwestern stock has been raised tw
such a standard that It not only carries
off some of the best prises at the Fort.
Worth Fat Stock Show, but figures
prominently In the livestock exhibi-
tions throughout the country.
Such an Institution at the National
Feeders' and Breeders' Show, which
has done and is still doing 10 much for
the couutry, should be given the mora)
and financial support of not only the
stockmen and farmers, but of the en-
tire population of the southwest, fur
the success of this exposition mean* a
larger price list each year, more build-
ings, Increased facilities for exhibitor*
and more and better amusements for
visitors. The faster this institution
grows, the more rapidly will grow the
livestock industry in f this section, so
let every man. woman and child in the
southwest attend the 1912 show in
March, and by so doing, not only make
this event the most successful ever
held but enjoy one solid week of pleas-
ure and education
