Collin County Class Initiation

Enthusiastic Woodmen Meeting.
Magnolia Camp No. 4 31, W. 0. W.
lieldi what would be termed the
monBter meeting of the season Mon-
day night. This was their regular
meeting night and as there were two
candidates ready and prepared, to
ride "Billy," the greater per cent
of the choppers were present when
the time arrived for the consul
commander to open the lodge. There
have been many interesting meet-
ings of Magnolia Camp held in the
past few monthH, but none were a
compurioon to the meeting of Mon-
day night. Each chopper present
seemed to realize tliut he was not
only a member of the greatest fra-
ternal order in the United States,
but an organization thnt wouldNook
after his loved ones If he should be
called from this band of sovereigns.
Besides, they had the assurance that
this great order would pay to Ills
loved wife and children, aged father,
gray haired mother or loving sister,
a nice amount in cash, that they
might not be left dependent upon
the charity of their friends and
neighbors. And especially was each
sovereign more thoroughly convinc-
ed with the works and teachings of
this grand order, when It was an-
nounced that Mrs. Sallie Steele, the
widow of Sow Henry Steele, who
passed away only a few weeks ago,
hud received a check from the head
offices of the Woodmen of the
World for a thousand dollars, which
is u great help to her and her little
daughter who were left to light the
battles of life alone.
It was stated before the lodge
Monday night that Mrs. Steele bad
requested that the consul command
er appoint Sovereigns W. II. Hilton
and S. J. Mussle, and these two sov-
ereigns appoint a third party to
purchase her u home in this city
The consul commander was more
than glad to comply with Mrs
Steele's request. It was indeed
gratifying to know that this good
Christian woman had so much confi-
dence in the members of Magnolia
"Camp, and these gentlemen will
proceed immediately to make a se
lection -which will suit Mrs. Steele,
In order that she, with her bright
eyed little girl, might move into a
place which she might truly call
After the lodge had been opened
in due form, and busines- of import-
ance had been disposed of, Capt. D
M. Padgltt arrangedi his team for
the introduction of the strangers
who were In waiting to receive the
Protection Degree. The team did
splendid work, and the degree was
conferred In a most interesting, im

meeting, occupied the station of

justice to himself, the lodge and the
The speeches made by Sovereign
Stlnebaugh, Hon. Marion Church,
Dr. E. E. King and Senator Tom W.
Perkins were appreciated very much
As the time is fast approaching
for the bi class initiation to be
held here April IS, It was decided
that the consul commander appoint
the different committees for that day
and report at the next meeting.
Five applications for membership
were received by the lodge at this
April IS will be a red letter day
for McKinney. The sovereigns are
arranging to have more Woodmen
In this city on that day than ever be-
fore on an occasion of this kind.
Every chopper of the various camps
of Collin, county should get busy and
do all in his power to make this a
grand success. With no other busi-
ness 'to come before the lodge it was
closed in ritualistic form to meet
again next Monday night.
Hold Good Meeting.
Cottonwood Camp No. 117, W. O.
W-., hold an interesting meeting
last Saturday night in which the
mysteries of Woodcraft was revealed
to two candidates. Five new mem-
bers were also elected at this meet-
ing. This runs the number to fif-
teen that have been elected since
the county campaign has been on
and the prospects are that at least
that many more will take advantage
of the low rate, which holds good
until the 18th of April.
Some three weeks ago a team was
organized in this Camp with J. B.
Cate captain. Saturday night was
the first time the team has undertak-
en the work, and when it is known
that they have had rtne night's prac-
tice each week, the members are to
be congratulated on the way they
handled the work. They are making
fine progress and In a short time
they will rank with the best In the
state. And why not?—Allen Enter-

These articles and the correspon-

of the big W. O. W. campaign that is
now on In Collin county. We would
like to have correspondents from
each W. O. W. camp in the counlty
and suggest that you send in short
items in connection with your camp
happenings. There never was a
time when we have had such advan-
tages for the interests of the W.O.W.
as me have during this campaign.
Send In the happenings from your
camp. But make them short and In-

The boys out on route 2 are tell-
ing a good one on Hans Hartnian
this week. It's like this:
Some time ago Hans made appli-
cation and was accepted as a mem-
ber of Lucas Camp W. 0. W., and
Tuesday night of last week was the
time set aside for Hans to ride the
goat. His friends had been telling
liini how the said goat had been de-
nied the benefits of a square meal
for some time and that he was un-
dergoing a special course of training
for ills special benefit. This did not
sound good to Hans and before ap-
pearing for the strenuous time that
was in store for liiin, he made all
kinds of preparation. It is stated
thnt he appeared clad in three pairs
of trousers and with Ills hands lm-
beddied in a pair of heavy-weight
boxing gloves, and no amount of
persuasion would induce the candi-
date to part, with the Implements
that had been especially prepared for
We are not informed ns to the
outcome of the affair, but feel safe
in saying that the goat did its work
in great shape under the guidance
of the Lficas boys.—Allen Enter-
Corn Crop Endangered.
Port Worth. Texas, March 13.—
"Help save the 1912 Texas Corn
Crop" is the plea that the agricul-
tural Department of the Rock Island
Lines is sendling out to the farmers
along their route in this state. The
communication is startling in its re-
port of tests made in other states
which show that 2.r> to 70 per cent of
the seed corn Is dead. The situation
Is most serious and unless extreme
precautions are taken In selecting
and testing the seed there will be
less than a half stand in many sec-
tions and the benefits of the good
soil conditions, which now exist, will
be lost. Tests made so far in Texas
indicate that conditions are not so
bad in this state, but It will be neces-
snry to make a germination tost of
every ear. It has been found in some
instances that the grains at the up-
per portion of an ear will grow while
those*ai the lower end will no! and
in some Instances the grains from
one side are good and those on the
opposite side of the ear are not.
The Rock Island's Agricultural
Department is co-operating with
the farmers and tests will be made
in practically every section of the
territory covered by its line before

URGED TO RUN
If Ills friends ail over this part of
the state have their way about it,
there Is not the least doubt but that
Hon. H. B. Singleton, one of the
most prominent agriculturists of this
section, and a staunch Collin county
citizen, will be a candidate, with
good chances for election, for the
very Important office of State Com-
missioner of Agriculture.
Mr. Singleton, who is authority
on questions of agriculture and hog
raising, and at present President of
the State Swine Breeders Associa-
tion, and of the Corn Growers As-
sociation, has, on numerous oc-
casions been selected as a judge of
fine hogs at the International Stock
Shows at Chicago.
If he can be Induced to offer for
this important position, Mr. Single-
ton can count on the unanimous
support of almost every man in
North Texas, regardless of party af-
filiations, und It Is very doubtful if
there is another man in the state
who could) poll a larger vote
throughout the state.
As an Indication of the interest
that is being taken in his candidacy
in other sections, the following high-
ly complimentary notice is taken
from the Sherman Daily Democrat
of March 12:
"Much pressure is being brought
to bear upon H. E. Singleton, a
prominent and progressive farmer
and stockman of near McKinney, to
allow his name to be offered as a
candidate for commissioner of agri-
culture. About three months ago a
movement was revived to secure his
candidacy and A. M. Ferguson of
this city was made secretary. The
idea has previously received consid-
erable attention from a number of
"The duty Imposed upon the nom-
ination committee was substantially
to ascertain if Mr. Singleton would
become a candidate, and if he could
be elected. The report of the com-
mittee Is that he "can be elected, if
he will enter the race; and that he
has promised to consider the propo-
"Those who are urging Mr. Single-
ton's nomination are not all farm-
ers, however, perhaps the strongest
supporters are to be found among
the Corn Growers association and
tiie Swine Breeders' association. The
view of the supporters seems to be
that they wish to champion a man
who is progressive and one whom
real farmers will respect. There has
never been any publicity given to the
movement whatever, until now.
"Mr. Singleton is a native citizen
of the country near McKinney and
has resided there for the past thirty
years. He is an experienced stock-
man and is especially Interested in
hogs. It is said that ho raises no
cotton whatever on Ills farm. He is
president of the Corn Growers Asso-
ciation and has several times been
chosen as a judge of hogs for the
International Stock Shows In Chica-
go. During the past three or four
years he has had charge of a dem-
onstration train for the Cotton Belt,
Katy, Santa Fc and for a number of
other roads of the Gould lines. At
present he has charge of a train for
the Santa Fe In the Panhandle coun-

riculture is Ed R. Kone, but he is
now serving Ills third term. He has
not yet announced as a candidate for
the position another term. Also, iu
yet, no one has announced for the
Fire, which started some time af-
ter midnight Wednesday, aliuosi
completely wiped out the business
section of the little village of Mur-
phy, about half way between Piano
and Wylle, In the southeast part of
this county, on the Cotton Belt Hall-
Particulars are lacking, but so far
as we can learn, the fire started
some time after midnight, in the
general merchandise Btore of Mr.
Moore, andl Is supposed to have been
caused by a defective Hue. The
Moore store was soon consumed, to-
gether with a big stock of goods, and
the flames were communicated, in
turn to the Davis grocery store and
the Miller drug store, each of which
wore entirely consumed with their
stocks of goods.
The Moore stock of goods was
partly covered by insurance, but it
is not. known whether or not the
grocery and drug stocks were insur-
ed. The building occupied , by the
Davis grocery store was the property
of J. L. Moulden, former sheriff of
this county, and was Insured for
All the buildings, which consti-
tute the major portion of the busi-
ness enterprises of the little village,
were frame structures, and burned

M. W. KEEN
The many friends of M. W. Keen,
an honored citizen of Collin county
for thirty five years, were greatl.v
shocked to hear of his death which
occured at his home at Albany, West
Texas, Sunday, after a brief illness.
Mr. Keen had1 been residing in west
Texas for the past three years, being
a progressive farmer of that section
of the state.
He was born In Kentucky, and
moved to Texas with his wife, settl-
ing in Collin county at the age of
twenty four years. He was married
to Miss Bettie Orr of his native state,
who was called to her reward six
After moving to Texas he first lo-
cated In the Millwood community
where he successfully engaged in
farming for several years.
He was then elected as county
clerk of Collin county, and moved
with his family to McKinney, serving
two terms as county clerk, at
all times faithfully performing the
duties pertaining to this office.
He was the father of Ed Keen de-
ceased, who was for several years
deputy county clferk of this county,
and also W. L. Keen, who is at pres-
ent deputy under County Clerk G. E.
Strother. After his time had expir-
ed as county clerk, Mr. Keen moved
to Prosper, where he again engaged
in farming, until three years ago
when he moved to west Texas, at
which place he resided at the time of
Mr. Keen was a man who was lik-
ed by all who claimed his acquaint-
ance. He was a moral, honest and
upright Christian gentleman, always
believing in doing to others, as he
would have them do unto him. He
leaves a largo circle of friends who
will mourn his death.
He was a member of the Cumber-
land Presbyterian church, he was al-
so a member of the Odd Fellows.
He is survived by the following
children: Mrs. Gambrell and J. W.
Keen, of Abilene, .1. T. Keen of Cis-
co, Mrs. Will Horn and Mrs. Qd
Beanland of Prosper, Mrs. J. A. Mar-
tin of Fort Worth and W. L. Keen of

bany. The editors of these papers

most profound sorrow to the be-
reaved children In the death of their

Two Well Known Men of White*

Court House s City Hall
What Has lleen Done in District, County, Justice and City Courts
A live wire that had fallen across
a clothes line caused the death of
two men at Whltewrlght late Mon-
day. Ira Davis, n telephone line-
man, and Bob Mayo, a carpenter,
were electrocuted within a few sec-
onds of each other. The accidents
occurred! In the back yard of Ira
Mrs. Davis, wife of one of the dead
men, was severely shocked while at-
tempting to free her husband from
the live wire that killed him and but
for the ef^prts of Postmaster Lon Da-
vis shs, perhaps, would have met
death in the same manner as did
No one saw Mr. Davis come In
contact with the wire, but his shouts
attracted others near by, among
them Mr. Mayo, who was on his own
premises, more than fifty feet away.
It was while the latter was making
a dash to render assistance to th,
lineman that he met his own death,
though at a point several steps away
from Mr. Davis when he touched
Wind, it is thought, caused a
hanging wire to come in contact
with that in the yard.
Mr. Davis leaves a widow and
ono child. A widow and two chil-
dren survive Mr. Mayo.
