The kidneys have a big work lo do.
All the blood in the body is coursing
through the kidneys constantly to bo
freed of poisonous matter. II is u
heavy enough task when the kidneys
are well, but a cold, chill, fever or
some thoughtless exposure Is likely
in Irritate, inflame and congesl the
kidneys and Interrupt the purifying
When the aching frequently begins
and Is often accompanied by some ir-
regularity of the urine—too frequent
passages, sediment or retention.
Thousands testify to the wonderful
merit of I loan's Kidney Pills, a rem-
edy for (he kidneys only, that has
been used In kidney troubles 50
years. You will make no mistake In
following Ibis McKiuney citizen's ad-
Mrs. W. M. Odcll, fi37 Kentucky
SI., McKiuney, Texas, says: "One of
my family had been annoyed for a
long time by pain in the back, ex-
tending Into the arms, and the one
also had headaches, together with I«<• -
perfect action of the kidneys. fTonn's
Kidney Tills were finally recommend-
ed and we got a supply. Half a box
brought great relief."
Price 50c at all dealers. Don't sim-
ply ask for a kidney remedy—get

tion led him into the domain of pub-

life to a public career, he has never-

ciate the name of such worthy cltl
/.ens on our list of readers and are
glad to have his endorsement of our
efforts to provide Collin with a county
map which has long been so badly
needed hut never before published
and offered the public. We only
have a limited number of these maps
which should lie In every school

not delay too long ill coining for it

DAMAGED BY FIRE
Sherman, Tex., May I fi.—Two
blocks of sheds and warehouses be-
longing to the Sherman Cotton 'HI
Provision Company burned hero
Thursday evening. The lire started
about ti o'clock and for more than two
hours it looked like the entire plant
would go, but tho fire department
made a. hard light anil saved much ad-
The blaze started in one of the (lack-
ing rooms of the old refinery and
spread rapidly. The exact cause is
not known tonight.
The fire swept from one-half block
east on Willow street to I/ee Avenue
on the south side of the company's
property and to within 100 feet of Lee
Avenuo on the north side.
Tho buildings burned were wood-
en. The main rellning plant recently
erected of brick and steel did not burn
and sustained very lit lo damage. The
estimated loss on building und stock
Is (35,000, covered by Insurance, al-
though when a thorough audit of all
damage is made It Is probable that
these figures will have to be revised.
Tho new automobile fire engine was
put to the test upon this occasion and
did splendid work, as did also the old
Tho flro was spectacular, and at-
tracted several thousand people to
Monday afternoon at Ro'clock In
the County Clerk's office W. II. Puke

Mr I t.i 11 h speech at llrecnville is
giving the antls minie concern, espe-
cially Mr Ferguson, lie Is vcrv
much perturbed over Mr It.ill'i po
sitlou ou Prohibition. He thinks the
Colonel made a great mistake Iu op
posing statutory Prohibition and ill
not trying to make National Prohi-
bition a State issue: and he ts really
distressed about the impression that
tills speech made upon this writer
and I ir (iamhrcll. lliess Ills dear
anxious soul! lie need not spend
any sleepless moments over us. We
heartily agree with every position
taken b> I'ol Hall We have known
l'rom tlie beginning that be held
these posit ions, even before we en-
iorsed him at Port Worth.
IVrgiiMtn Anil .luliiiMitii.
Mr I'Yrguson swore on tlie alter of
his bull calves at Tyler that he sup
ported i'one Johnston for delegate at
large as against Itailcy and tried lo
whoop up the Tyler Pros because of
iii.it support. Ilut lie did not tell
tIiciii that itailcy at that time was a
Pro ami Johnston was Alitl. Neither
did he tell them what lie did for Cone
Johnston when lie and Poliulyxler
and Pavhlson were running against
Colquitt for Cioveruor. Ho forsook
Cone then and flung with all his
force Into the Colquitt flKht And lie
did not tell t licui what lie did for
Cone Johnston during the time he
was iu the race for the Senate
against Jake Whollcrs lie flung
htmscll Willi all his influence for
Jake Woltcrs Why did lie not tell
tlie Tyler pie the whole truth'.'
In thai same speech lie charged
thai a leading saloonkeeper Iu Hous-
ton had coiit I United H'nnII to Hall's
campaign, and when Judge Walker
took tie matter up wit h hliu and
denied II. and asked I,nil either to
prove il oi to retract II, lie did not
deign lo make reply to Judge Walk
CI*. lie does Hot seem lo ItlloW the
common i mcnitlcs that obtain be
Iweeti honorable men under such clr
cumslaiici s Ally selfrespecllug man
would make haste lo prove such a
tali no nl or do I lie decent thing and
relrnci II. Mill not so with Mr. Per
gusoti, When lie Ih short in real
campaign material lie does not liesi-
Iate to create It. When he Is con-
fronted Willi the statement that lie
lias Intentionally misrepresented tlie
facts, In rrlns and says nothing.
When he spoke at ('larks* Hie the
other day, Mr. Ferguson said; "The
Pros have endorsed a high-toned sa
loon keeper for their candidate for
Oovcrnor." It seems thai common
decency would restrain hint from
making a statement like that Ills
trouble is that he lias no well-defined
views of public questions. lie Is so
accustomed to that sort of speech In
his habitual opposition to local op-
tion iu Hell county that lie thinks II
Is proper in Ids campaign for Oov
ernor, lie lias stood by the saloon-
keepers in that country so long with
his money and Ids mouth that 11 Is
Just his nature to talk that way when
lie stands before I lie public.
That Is exactly I he way he talked
about Mev. M. P Shulcr during all of
Shulcr's campaign against saloons
and social vice during Ills paslorati
in Temple. And when Itlshop Atkins
of the Methodist Church sent Shulcr
to the Austin Avenue Church, Aus-
tin, Ferguson tried lo persuade the
otliciais of the Austin Church to pe-
tition tlie Mlshop lo remove Shulcr
from that charge. Nevertheless, Fer-
guson Is not n member of the church
and makes no pretention to religion!
lie wanted Shulcr destroyed because
he fought the saloons and the social
vice of Temple. He could not hurt
him in Temple, but undertook to In-
jure him in Austin. Of course that
sort of a man would call Col. Hall ii
"high-toned saloonkeeper." Hut tin
crowd of saloonkeepers thai Fergu
son stands by and supports In Tem-
ple make no pretention to being
in one or our North Texas counties
the other day the chairman of the
Ferguson campaign coinmlllee was
asked why he was supporting Fer-
guson. Ills reply was : "Col Hail Is
,i whiskey drinker and a. hypocrite."
When asked for ills authority for
sqch a reckless statement fie replied;
"oh, I heard II on the street as a
common rumor." Think of a high-
toned man quoting such a slander
without one particle of evidence to
support Ids allegation but. street
"rumor." Is the Ferguson campaign
management shut up to slander In
their efforts to promote the political
fortunes of their candidate? Has
he given them the cue iu Ills Tyler
speech and are they going to give us
a campaign of slander and vilifica-
Ferguson Is now posing as a Wil-
son Democrat. How did he stand
when we were doing our best to car-
ry Texas for the Princeton scholar
and statesman? He was chairman
of the Champ Clark campaign com-
mittee In Hell county. The fact Is,
when you go Into Hell county, tlie
only place that Ferguson was known
until be announced for Oovcrnor,
>ou will find that he has always been
on the wrong side of every great Issue
Hut now he Is appearing to Wilson
Democrats for support Just like bo
appealed to Cone Johnson's friends
In Tyler to support hint. He Is nil
things to all men If any moans lie
may deelove somebody Into voting
Illlll t'alves ItaiiUlicd.
Hut what has become of his bull
calf literature? When he first an-
nounced Ids candidacy he had tho
pictures of those calves on Ills circu-
lars, and they made a much better
showing than did his own pictures,
lie started out a* the bull calf can-
didate *or Governor, but ho suppres-
sed those pictures, nut In their place
he ought to have a picture of bis
