Longhorns Are Re-

Following i a letter from the
Executive Secretary of the Young
Men's Business League cf Ballinger
which we are glad to reproduce as
it proves beyond any reasonable
doubt that the Lubbot k "Longhorns"
which come from the Ballinger
team are well liked in that city arid
we are glad they will be welcomed
Lubbock is glad to be headquar-
ters for that splendid team and we
are sure they will win the admira-
l tion of a!l those who associate with
I them in Lubbock :
j President Lubbock Bas. ball Club.
I. ul. bo. k Texas.
We have been advised that Lub-
bock will open up her baseball sea-
son this year in San Angelo and
e would like to arrange for a game
between your club and a local ama-
teur club before your opening date
in that city.
The member of the Lubbock
team have a very warm place in the
heart of the people of Balling-r
and their return to this city this
spring for an exhibition game would
be the occasion of tremendous
ovation in their honor by our citi-
zens. Our organisation will arrange to
make the day a half holiday and to
provide any other entertainment in
the way of a reception or dance
that you would be willing for your
men to attend.
Kindly let us hear frw you in
this connection at an early date.

Pave the Way to
Cream separators and prosperity
go together according to the ob-
servations of many business men
and for that reason those who sell
implements hardware or other ar
ticles of commerce to farmers
strong advocate of good
cream separators and milking ma
en i ties.
At a recent State convention of
the Texas Hardware and Implement
Dealers' Association in bulls the
subject of the cream separator busi-
ness came up for discussion. It
seemed to be the general opinion
that while the margin of profit was
slight that the service rendered naid
I indirectly arid that it was worth any
: dealer s time to push that part of
his business. We quote from a
j part of the discussion as puhli.-Jied
j from a stenographic report appear-
I ing in the Hardware and Implcimft
I Mr. Timberluke: "I don't thiol
i we ew r made a dollar on ere. mi
separators but it is like the gen: Io-
nian said yesterday about what it
firings into the store. When e
sell a separator we are giving serv-
ice. My observation has been ti.at
the fellow who uses a separator is
a man who pays cash for thitu'-.
or who will soon be able to i ay
ca.-h for thing's. A man who keep'
his cow and other by-product on
the farm is a man that can prcMy
soon pay cash for everything be
wants. It is a mighty good combi-
nation with other lines. It gets
you neiter acquainted with your
customer although on that one item
you might not make much money.
It keeps you in touch with people
you serve ami who may be worth
something to you and besides that.

Mr. Scoales: "I would like to arid
my Amen to that. If you can en
eourage a man to go into or help

going to have cash customers."
These are views of business men
who take that position from an en-

ous farmer so that they can sell
more implements for cash and they

is not only the best farmer I t

The bulk of the counties had re-

No effort ha been mado thin
year to get registration figure by
sexes for the pason that very few
collectors keep the figures si pa rat e-
ly and guesses are without value.
Not until late in the full or 1K20
was there any call for women ta
pay fioll taxes or to register for
voting in final elections. Then af-
ter the suffrage amendment had
been ratified by three-fourths of
the Sta(s the Texas Legislature
opened the book for a few weeks
especially for women. Only a few
however felt enough interest in the
final election to pay the tax. la
1U21 although women were clothed
with fall suffrage the registratioa
fell off for the reason that it waa
an "off year" and many of the mea
did not pay.
Forget the past don't hold on to

Only a few left. The smartness and utility of a
TWEED Suit can t be surpassed. Fashions may
come and Fashions may go but the simple TWEED
Suit will always hold its place in Fashions favor.
It always retains that smartness of style that char-
acteristic utility that gives it an indispensable
place in every wardrobe.

clever and individual. You'll find one or more
