When death is near, and I at last
am facing the mystery which chills
the heart of men, will memories of
all my money chasing bring to my
soul a gentle peace again? Will
mortgage# and stocks and bonds
and leases dispel the gloom that
daunts my dying eyes? Will banjt
boohs help, or tench me what true
peace Ib, or light the waters, where
death's river sighs? Will comfort,
come from him who yearly pays nie
the Interest on bonds or farms or
ores? Will money bribe Ihe oars-
man who conveys nie o'er sobbing
waves to undiscovered shores?
When death is near, and I must go
a-salling from scenes I love, across
uncharted seas, and friends stand
near, some cheering and some wall-
ing, some saying to me, "Now, look
pleasant, please " my heart will
find no comfort in my riches, but In
the thought that every now and
then I've helped some fallen pil-
grims from the ditches, and that I
always loved my fellowtnen.

The man who owns a good home
and a few acres of Collin county
dirt i« hs independent as a "robin
In a cherry tree." If he isn't it Is
his own fault and does not need the
sympathy of anyone.
The State of Texas has filed suits
for amounts aggregating $305,000
against the Houston, Harrisburg &
San Antonio and> M. K. & T. rail
ways in Texas, for violations of the
thlrty-mlnute-schedule law. The
State now has suits of this kind
pending against very nearly every
big line which muke up and for-
ward trains from and to points in
the Slate. This law only applies,
however to roads which make up and
forward trains from and to points
In the State. It does not apply to
trains which are made up in other
stutes and come across the line be-
hind schedule time.
Suppose Collin county makes a«
much as 50,000 bales of cotton this
year, and the farmer gets I cents
a pound for it. That, on top of the
tine grain and forage crop would
put the old county on easy street,
August 2N, 3H and tt(( those are
three days which every man, woman
and child in Collin countv should
remember. Those are the days on
which our big three days Old Set-
tlers and ex-Confederates reunion
will he held. Have you written to
any of your friends to come and be
with us oil those dates'.' If not.
Get ready, fellows, t<> eat your
plate of crow which is cerlnin to i e
lilshed up to you about ii"\t Sunday
morning. It might not 'be a nig
dish, but we feel gate in predicting
that there will be but few who are
taking any great amount ol interest
in the presell', state and county cam
paign but will have a small portion
of crow dished up for him when the
votes are all In. We can't all of os
win on all our favorites.
The passage, by the house, of the
ileal 1 bill prohibiting the gambling
in cotton future®,. Is one of the big
triumphs of the session of congress.
Its fate in the senate is not forecast
iu sources of high authority, but
there is thought to be good prospect
for its final enactment into law. The
measure prohibits the buying and
selling of cotton not In existence,
and it places restrictions on tele
graph companies, the mail and other
communicating agenlces. It would
mean the entire abolition of cotton
speculation In futures, and the de-
struction of the big exchangee. The
light against it has been principally
on the plea that dealers In cotton
need Ihe future markets in order to
"hedge" and that without this pro-
tection, they could not conduct their
business. That legitimate dealers
do use the exchanges in their opera-
lions is no doubt (rue, yet for every
deal thus "legitimately" made, there
are probably thousands which are
gambling speculations pure and sim-
ple. If the exchanges are abolished',
the country will manage to worry
along somehow, and the cotton will
find its way to the spinners.—Tem-
There are all kinds of campaign
liars in the country just at this time,
and it behooves every fair-minded
voter to be on his guard and not
listen to everything he hears. in-
vestigate all reports, no matter from
what source, and make your choice
from an unbiased standpoint.

ite Wills presided over the punch
bowl, all but hidden in a bed of
white asters and ferns. In the din-
ing room the guests assembled for
the cutting of the bride's cake, Miss
Lucy Wooten presiding. Streamers
of smllax studded with white asters
fell from the chandelier to the ta-
