One of the largest crowds to ever
assemble at any place on the Plains
of Texts to celebrate the Glorious
Fourth came to Plainview on our
natal day. Not counting the incid-
ental attendance by people from out
of the state and many other visitors,
who were not there for the purpose
of celebration, the big crowd was
made up of Tezas people from more
than 30 counties; from Dallam coun-
ty on the north to Andrews on the
south, from Dickens on the east to
the state line on the west. They
came by horse back, in buggies, in
camp wagons and by train, but per-
haps the largest number came over
the Plains by auto. These chug
wagons literally filled the streets of
the little city. There was one
visitor who had come all the way
from Utah in a small four-wheel
apring wagon drawn by a very small
donkey. On the front sheet bow of
the wagon the owner and driver had
fixed an exceptionally large pair of
deer horns. On the side of the sheet
was this legend—"To Utah and Re-
turn 1000 Miles."
While the street carnival and fea-
ture attractions continued from the
2nd to the 6th of July, the really
big day, the day of the big crowd,
was on the 4th. The townspeople
turned out enmass<t and joined in
every kind of entertainment and
amusement. In the early morning
of that day the people filled the
square and main streets, so that
when the pageant parade was start-
ed, it required the combined efforts
of several mounted officers to make
a way for the long line of decorated
floats, buggies and autos to pass.
The merchants and other business
men of Plainview evidenced great
enterprise in their various M get-ups"
and features in the parade. One
firm had a large ship which glided
along tbe streets as if on actual
water, another float represented a
barber shop and one man was seen
to be giving a shampoo to a customer,
others had floats equally as attrac-
At the close of the parade the fire
boys gave an exhibition by "making
a run" to a supposed fire, after which
W. L. Palmer having .purchased Mr.
Cope's interest in the firm of Copes & Palmer
Sheet Metal and Plumbing Co., the firm will
now be known as Palmer & Palmer S|*eet
Metal and Plumbing Co., and are open to dof

they engaged in a water fight, much
to the amusement of the spectators.
In the afternoon, near the city,
the races were well attended. Horse
racing, pony racing and auto speed-
ing were the main features. During
all the day and far into the night
the Carnival Company, which oc-
cupied with their tents a whole block,
held large crowds. The bigh diver,
the bicycle leap, tbe water duck, the
ferris wheel, negro minstrel, fat
woman, big snake show, and all
other usual features were there.
Not to mention the organ merry-go-
round, which was patronised by i ll
sizes and ages, would be derelect of
the writer's duty. A harvest of
rubber whistles and balloons, whips
and red caps was made, while the
games of luck were all there, from
the red spot disk to the bung-hole
That the Plainview folks know
how to entertain a typical Plains-of-
Texas crowd goes without dispute.
Every citueen had a glad word and
welcome for you. Strangers were
found no where, except by him who
would be a stranger. Even the can-
didates, almost as numerous as the
proverbial black bird on the wheat
stacks, were treated with utmost
care and consideration.
This "Just Looking On" vould
not be complete without the mention
of the splendidly good spirit that
prevailed throughout the day and
week. There was no rough and
rowdy play, no coarseness nor un-
seeming conduct, no drunkenness or
browling. Good will and favor
possessed tbe big crowd and only re-
laxation and recreation was sought.
The other towns of the PUios
would do well to emulate the success
of Plainview in the celebration of the
4th. A. C. Elliott.

You Don't Want Any More
There's no real reason why a per-
son should take Calomel anyway,
when fifty cents will buy a large
bottle of Dodson's Liver Tone—a
perfect substituto for calomel. It is
a pleasant tasting vegetable liquid
which will start the liver just as
surely as calomel, and which has
absolutely no bad after-effects.
Children and grown people can
take Dodson's Liver tone without
any restriction of habit or diet.
Betts & Clark's drug store sells it
and guarantees it to take the place
of calomel and will refund your
money if it fails in your case.
C. Palmer of San Antonio, who
used to buy wool here some twelve
years ago, was here on that mission
again the first of the week, but find-
ing that most of the Hereford wool
had already been disposed of, went
on up into Colorado.
Are You Nervous?
What makes you nervous? It is the weakness of your
womanly constitution, which cannot stand the strain of the
hard work you do. As a result, you break down, and ruin
your entire nervous system. Don't keep this up! Take
Cardui, the woman's tonic. Cardui is made from purely
vegetable ingredients. It acts gently on the womanly organs,
and helps them to do their proper work. It relieves pain
and restores health, in a natural manner, by going to the
source of the trouble and building up the bodily strength.
C anmn The
Mrs. Grace Fortner, of Man, W. Vs., took Cardui.
This is what she says abotlt it: "I was so weak and
nervous, I coukl not bear to have anyone near me. I had
fainting spells, and I lost flesh every day. The first dose
of Cardui helped me. Now, 1 am entirely cured of the
fainting spells, and 1 cannot say enough for Cardui, for 1
know It saved my life." It is the best tonic for women.
Do you suffer from any of the pains peculiar to women?
Take Cardui It will help you. Ask your druggist
