McKINNEY, COLLIN OOUN.1Y, TR.YAS, THURSDAY. FEB. 20, 1012.
SURVEY THROUGH PRINCETON.
Missouri, Oklahoma & Gulf Railway;
Little City liopeful.
The surveying party for the M. O.
& G. R. R. arrived here Monday, and
began surveying a new llnw for the
road that is to come through this
part of the country from Denlson to
Dallas, thence to the Gulf. The line
was surveyed some weeks ago and
followed the creeks and lowlands
I, ^ for several miles, thereby missing
| Princeton three or four miles on the
w" i&at. Later the officials decidedi to
rut^ a new survey from a point be-
low >Culleoka to Tom Beene in Gray-
son county. This put the line on a
high level country between the two
places, and on a straight line from
Denlson to Dallas. Chief Engineer
says this will be one of the best!
roads in this part of the country and
that active work will likely begin
soon. The road will run through
one of the richest sections of farm
ing country In Texas. A road is
needed very bad and Princeton be-
ing exactly the center between Far
mersvllle and McKinney, we feel
euro of getting the road. In fact,
it is the history of railroad people
that they build roads through the
best country, the best, towns, where
they nrJF needed most, and where It
will be a paying proposition for
them, and this last survey through
Princeton proves that the judgment
of the M. O. & G. people are not to
be questioned. The line crosses the
M. K & T. in the west part of town
just ojjjst of where the old school
building stood.—Princeton News.
crease in percentage was smaller
than that of the preceding year.
This general decline in the breeding
of live stock may be accounted for
by the decrease in value per head.
Horses: In 1911 the number of
borses in the Union increased 1.1
per cent, as compared with an in-
crease for 1910 of 2.6 per cent. On
December 31, 1911, the value per
head was $5.41 less than on the
same date in 1910.
Mules: In 1911 the number of
mules In the United States increas-
ed nine-tenthB of one per cent, com-
pared with an Increase of 2.7 per
cent In 1910. On December 31,
1911, the value per head was $5.42
less than on the same date In 1910.
Mich cows: In 1911 the number
of milch cows In the Union decreas-
ed six-tenths of one per cent, as
compared with an Increase fro 1910
of nine-tenths of one per cent. De-
cember 31, 1911, the value per head
was 64 cents more than on the same
date In 1910.
Sheep: In 1911 the number of
sheep In the United StateB decreas-
ed 2.4 per cent, as compared with an
Increase for 1910 of 2.3 per cent.
On December 31, 1911, the value
per head was 45 cents per head
less than on the same date In 1910.
Swine: In 1911 the number of
swine in the United States decreased
three-tenths of one per cent, as
compared with an increase for 1910
of 12.8 per cent. On December 31,
1911, the value per head was $1.37
less than on the same date in 1910.
J. H. JONES
A phone message was received at
this office yesterday, conveying
the sad news of the death of J. H.
Jones, an aged man and highly re-
spected citizen of near Gunter, which
occurred that morning. Mr. Jones
was taken with a chill last Sunday
He continually grew worse, and in
a very short time he had pneumonia,
his death being due to this cause.
He was 72 years old at the time of
his death, and had lived In Texas
for the past thlrtv-flve or forty
years. He had lived at Colllnsvilie
and near Gunter for the past four
or five years. He Is an uncle of D.
W. Hagwill of the Cottage Hill com-
munity and L. E. Bagwlll of Altoga.
Mr. Jones was a high-toned Chris-
tian gentleman, and always did ev-
erything In his power for the ad-
vancement of the ChrlRtlan cause.
He Is survived by Ills wife and
eight children. The interment will
be made at the Bethel cemetery,
about twelve iylles northwest of
Gunter, Thursday afternoon.
The editors of these papers extend
condolence to the bereaved ones in
the death of this kind husband and
The citizens of Blue Ridge and the
surrounding country, as well aB
many citizens of McKinne/ were
greatly shocked Tuesday when
they heard that two deaths had oc-
curred at and near Blue Ridge that
morning from meningitis. The Bon
of Mr. and Mrs. Joe George ,wlio re-
Blde In the Red Oak community, on-
ly a few miles from Blue Ridge, was
taken seriously 111 with this disease
one day last week and was thought
to be getting along very well until
a day or so ago, vhen a change was
made for the worse. He died Tues-
day morning at 8 o'clock.
Earl Price, the 14-year-old son of
Mrs. Sib Price, who run? the hotel
at Blue Ridge, was taken with this
dlseaBe while he Bat at the breakfast
table Tuesday. He was first
taken with convulsions and contin-
ually grew worse, dying at about 11
o'clock, having, lived only about
three hours from the time he was
stricken with the disease.
The boy was In comparatively
good health only Monday, and no
one wouldi have thought that, he
would so soon be cold In death.
We extend condolence to the be-
reavod ones In the death of their

Joe Shepherd, the fifteen-year-old
son of Mr. and Mrs. D. W. Shep-
herd, of Cellna, died Tuesday of
the family home after a brief Illness
of Cerebro Spinal Meningitis, the bu-
rial taking place yesterday. The
deceased boy waB born In Wilson
cotonty, Tennessee, but came to Col-
Lin county with his parents four
years ago. He is survived by his
parents, three brothers, George,
Walter and Ray, and four Bisters,
Mrs. Fred Qrlsham, Miss Henrietta
Shepherd, Cecil and Ida Shepherd.
The last named two sisters are
nurses in Dr. Caldwell's Sanitarium
in McKinney. Dr. Caldwell received
a phone message yesterday from
the faiher of the deceased boy, an-
nouncing the Bad news of his boy's
sudden death and requesting the
doctor to so inform the boy's sisters,
but instructing his daughters not to
go home, thus exposing themselves,
in case the dread disease is contag-
ious. The young sisters of the de-
ceased in McKinney have the sympa-
thy of everybody in the crushing and
sudden sorrow that has come upon
them and which Is all the more
poignant under the .circumstances
that prevent their seeing tlselr loved
one even after his death or attend-
ing his burial.
The editors of these papers join
In extending heartfelt sympathy to
the bereaved loved ones.

Washington, D. C., Feb. 24.—
(Special)—The February Crop Re-
porter shows that there was a gen-
Vral decline In the robing of live
stock in the United States In 1911
compared with 1910. In some In-
stances there was an increase for
1911, but even In such cases the In-

mer, was here Monday. He owns
550 acreB of aB line land as can be

He says the rain was a great boon
for wheat, which looks good and
promises well thus far, this year.
Jim Turner is a big farmer, a big
hearted, clever man with a most
hospitable family and we are glad to
note Ills success in life. Mr. Turner
reported a freak incident of the high
wind Sunday evening. He had taken
out an old zinc underground tank re-
cently on one of his places and left It
sitting in the yard. The high wind
started the tank (about fifty barrell
size) to rolling. It went through or
bounded over several fences, smash-
ed fence posts and tore things up
generally that lay in Its track and
traveled for fully three miles before
It. stopped, by this time, badly batter
ed dented and bottomless.
Operation Is Performed.
Winona, the little eight-year-old
dnughter of Mr. and Mtb. A. L.
Priest, who reside in the Chambers-

with pneumonia for the past two
weeks. The attending physicians
were forced to perform an operation
on the little girl Thursday after-
noon, to remove an abcess which had
formed on her lungs. The little
girl came out from under the op-
eration fine, and Is much better to-
day. The many friends of Mr. and
.Mrs. Priest are glad to know that
their little daughter Is Improving.

Only Once In
With this week's Issue of the
Weekly Democrat-Gazette, five is-
sues will have been published for
the month of February, something
which will not occur again for a
period of forty .veers. The last year
in which five Thursdays occurred In
the month of February, wap in 1872,
and will not occur again until 1952.
Other days of the week have oc-
curred five times In February, fre-
quently, on the occasion of a leap
year, but as above stated, not for
forty years has there been five
Thursdays In that month. It might
seem to be a hard matter to figure
this out** why it is so, but if one will
sit down and do a little reasoning
and less figuring, the matter will be
made quite plain, and there Is no
trick In It, elther.\

Washington, D. C., Feb. j9.—
Last bulletin gave forecasts of dis-
turbance to cross continent March 1
to J!, warm wave 3 to 7, cool wave
0 to 10. This will bring the warm-
est weather of March, is expected to
cause a thaw In some of the winter
grain sections. The freezing and
thawing that will result is expected
to damage all winter grain.
On account of these frequent
small freezes and thaws 1 have ex-
pected April cropweather will show
very considerable damages to win-
ter grain because such freezing and
thawing is by experience, bIiowii to
be the greatest drawback to winter
wheat, rye and other winter grains.
Next disturbance will reach the
Pacific coast about March 9, cross
Pacific slope by close of 10th,, great
central valleys 11 to 13, eastern sec-
tions 14. Warm wave will cross
Pacific slope about March 9, great
central valleys 11, eastern sections
13. Cool wave will cross Pacific
slope about March 12, great central
valleys 14, eastern sections 16.
Temperatures of this section will
average warmer than usual and the
weather will be more severe. The
coo! wave will cause freezing but not
very cold weather In northern sec-
tions. Most rainfall will be In
southern stateB while this Ktorm
wave Is passing. But the upp. r Mis-
sissippi, some parts of the upper
Missouri and Manitoba will get rains
or snowB. Heavy rains are promised
in Hie San FranclBco valleys.
The warm weather first part of
March is liable to misleadi to early
gardening. Gardners should be
careful till after severe cold spell
that will come near March 28. All
tender out door plants should be
protected from that cold spell.
The Southern States are promised
splendid cropweather foi early truck
farming and early gardening and
they should make the most of It.
Cropweather may not be so good
later on. Of course some parts of
the South will be too dry but most
sections will have abundance of rain.
The cold weather of March will
probably not reach the early truck
fanners of the south.
We have had sectional drouths for
three years and it would seem nat-
ural that this year be excused from
such crop destroyers. I am not pre-
dicting a general drouth nor a gen-
eral failure of crops but we are not
yet. d6ne with the sectional drouths.
Large sections of the continent are
sure to be visited by serious drouth
the coming crop season and very
much will depend on the kind of
crops put In and bow.
Home sections will have an abun-
dance of rain and there the seed
should be planted, for wet weather
while in the drouth sections the
very early maturing crojra should be
planted on the uplands and the late
maturing on the low and flat lands.
In large sections the late potato
crop will be a failure.
Farmers, planters, truck growers
and gardeners should organize for
self protection. All classes of other
productive Industries are well or-
ganized and the agricultural produc-
ers are working at a disadvantage.
The man who wants to buy now tells
the farmer when to sell. Tills scheme
Is carried on so shrewdly that pro-
dm rs are deceived. No one can
blame the grnln dealers and cotton
dealers. They are attending to busi-
ness. My weather work is advice to
both producer and dealer, and I
know that the latter is wide awake
to his interests.
If producers were organized they
would know better when to sell.
They could then Investigate false re-
ports about crop conditions In thlB
and In other countries. These false
reports are very misleading. It Is
enough for me to keep Informed
about crops on this continent.
In his roundB recently a represen-
tative of these papers saw two late-
ly installed Bowser self-ineasuring
tanks at the lumber yard of J. M
Wilcox & Son, which aro a great Im-
provement In the way of oil tanks.
One of them is used for raw linseed
oil storago and the other Is for boil-
ed linseed oil. One Is of 175 gal
Ion capacity and the other 125 gal-
lons. Both are made of fourteen
gage galvanized' zinc and are sunk
In the ground to the level of the
lloor. These tanks, which are very
costly, keep the oil airtight and pre-
vents the oil from becoming fat and
also reduces wastage to a minimum.
They are equipped with attachments
that Indicate at all times the quan-
tity of oil contained In each tank.
This lateBt addition to their equip
ment, is In line with the policy of
J. M. Wilcox & Son during their en-
tire thirty-one years business career
in the lumber and paint business in
McKinney. Keeping abreast of pro-
gress, dealing squarely and1 honestly
with everybody and handling the
higheBt standards and best quali-
ties of everything has been the poll
cy upon which a mammoth retail
business and a steadily growing job-
bing trade has been built up. In
the paint line, Wilcox & Son have
for fifteen years handled Harrison's
Town and Country Paint on an ex-
tensive scale, buying It by the car
load lot. Their patronage is grow-
ing every day on ready mixed paints,
barn paint, oil, etc., and patrons are
well pleased with results and con-
tinue to use this popular brand sold
only by J. M. Wilcox & Son and ad
vertlsed by them in every issue of
this paper. The senior member of
the firm, J. M. Wilcox, Is an honored
pioneer settler of the county, an ex
Confederate veteran and one of the
most highly esteemed and generally
respected citizens, who ever lived in
the county. On account of advanc
ing age, Mr. Wilcox, several years
ago, committed the management of
the extensive business whose solid
foundation he laid well and deep
nearly a third of a century ago, to
the active supervision of Ills son,
George Wilcox, junior member of
the firm. George Wilcox, like his
honored father, is a business man ot
large capacity and success, enjoying
the confidence and esteem of his
fellow-citizens to a degree that Is
not second to any other business
man in the entire county. He Is a
man of action, but of few words,
and his name adds prestige to any
enterprise or cause that Is so fortun-
ate ns to enlist his cooperation or
sanction. It gives these papers pleas-
ure to note the continued improve-
ment in facilities and steady, con-
tinual growth in volume of retail
and jobbing trade of such a meri-
torious, progressive firm as J. M.
Wilcox & Son and we bespeak a
long future of undiminished suc-
cess and prosperity yet., lying out
before this concern which has been
such a potent factor in the develop-
ment of not. only our fair city of
McKinney but also our rich, popu-
lous county In Its entirety.
Revival at FriHeo.
The revival meeting conducted by
County Missionary M. F. Wheeler
at Frisco has so far been unusually
good, considering the weather last
week. There has been nine addi-
tions to the church up to this date

Is a good town, surrounded by a
good country with a choice citizen-
ship. Such conditions can only pro-
duce a gooil healthy Christian com-
munity when properly cultivated.
Pray for the work at Frisco.
