The choicest garb, the sweetest grace
Are oft to strangers shown;
Tht- Careless mien, tho frowning face
Aro given to our own.
We flatter those we scarcely know;
We please tho fleeing guest;
And deal full many a thoughtless blow
To those who love us best.
Love does not grow on every tree,
Nor true hearts yearly bloom;
Alas for those who only :;ee

The contest between Governor Oox
and Senator Harding to carry Ohio is
bound to be one of the most interest-
ing political contests in recent years,
not because of the mere fact that
they both live In Ohio and are native
sons of the ltuckeye State, but be-
cause of tho "past performances" of
Democrat Is and Republicans in the
State since 1912. It was In that year
that the careers of these two men
crossed for tlie first time, and It was
In that year, because of the Bull
Moose split, that Ohio appeared in
the national Democratic column for
the first time since the organization
of the Republican party.
In 1912 Mr. Cox appeared as the
candidate of the Democratic party for
Governor, and Mr. Harding was the
candidate of the Republicans for the
same place. Tho Republican party
was split in two, and Mro. Taft, also
of Ohio, was the Republican candi-
date for President. Mr. Cox wan
elected, his vote being 139,323, Mr.
Harding received 272,500 votes and
the Progressive candidate 217,903.
On tho face of those returns it W
reasonable to suppose that if there
had not been a Progressive candidate
Mr. Harding would have been elect-
ed, Uut there is a significant aspect

President Wilson will give Nominee
Cox his full support in every way
possible to bring about his nomina-
tion. That's more than some Texas
politicians will do.
The Twenty First Annual Ex-Con-
federates and Old Settlers' Picnic and
Reunion is closo at hand, tho dates
being July 28, 29 and 30th. This
promises to be the best of them all. it
is one of tho real big, enjoyable af-
fairs of north Texas each year. Get
ready to attend.
Soil conservation is a matter of
vital importance to Collin county.
Many of our farms have been in cul-
tivation for a half century or even
period longer. While our soil is moro
durable then peihaps any other soil
in the nation, yet its fertility is bound
to decrease with consiant production
and use without some kind of fertili-
zation. Rotation of crops helps won-
derfully. Barn yard manure is an ex-
cellent fertilizer end is too valuable
to permit to go to waste. Feeding
stock on farm also materially helps
to maintain productivity of the soil.
Feeding high grade livestock on the
farm also helps solve crop market-
ing problems In a profitable way.
Governor Cox declared In his state-
ment that he and Mr. Wilson were
agreed as to the meaning and suffi-
ciency of the party platform and the
duty of the party in the face of threat-
ened bad faith to the world in the
name of America. He declared that he
would give all his strength to the
promises made by President Wilson to
those sacrificed in the great war.—
Washington dispatch., to which the
Fort Worth Record adds the following
pertinent comment: Governor James
M. Cox of Ohio is not a repudiator. iTe
la not a nulllfler. He is for tho
achievements of the Democratic ad-
ministration. He is for the policies of
tho Democratic administration. Ho
la for the platform made by the Dem-
ocrats of America ir. the city of San
Francisco. This for tli3 to-called 1 em-
ocrats who are denouncing tho San
Francisco convention, the Texas del-
egates who attended the convention,
tho platform they assisted in drafting
and the standard boners in whose
bands they placed tho banners of De-
mocracy which shall float over vie to
rlous hosts In Novoinoir.
The Examiner believes there is no
doubt the voters will authorize the is-
fiunce of bonds with which to build a
Livestock Pavilion. The election Is sot
for Aug. 3rd. in speaking of tho mut-
ter, Mr Howell E. Smith, cashier of
the First National Bank, said: "Cer-
tlnly I am for It, and I believe thut all
the people of McKinney are for build-
ing this pavilion. McKinney owns
this building to the farmers an'l
stockmen of tho county. They need it
and will use It, so that should end any
argument regarding whether or not
tho bond issue should be voted. Tho
Stockman and farmers are coming to
McKinney as never before to do their
trading. They like McKinney and
•want to do more business here. They
want this building for sales purposes
and for the county fair. Tho man who
would vote against It would bo voting
against the fair and against these
people coming to McKinney to sell
their livestock and other farm com-
modities. And wo need it for housing
big crowds and for other purposes.
There seems to be no question at all ns
to whether the issuo will curry. Every-
body seems to be for it but the thing
we want to do is to have a big vote—
a vote that will speak in no uncertain
tonea about this matter. There Is no
other matter at present such vi-
tal importance to McKinney'* future
M this bond election.".—McKinney
ioverlooked in tho fact that, whereas
Mr. Cox run ahead of the Democrat-!
ic national ticket by 18,000 votes, Mr.
Harding foil behind tho Republican J
national ticket by 5,000 votes and the j
Progressive candidate' for Governor
fell behind Roosevelt by 12,000 votes, j
Two years later, when most of tlia
Progressives huii returned to the Re-
publican party, Uieso two men came
before tho voters again. Governor
Cox was a candidate for re-election,
and Mr. Harding was the Republican
candidate for United States Senator.
Governor Cox was defeated by a
Republican plurality of more than
30,000 and Mr. Harding was elected
to tho United States Senate by a plu-
rality of more than 100,000. These
figures would indicate that both men
were strong with the people per-
In 1916 another Presidential elec-
tion came on, arid again Governor
Cox was a candidate for Governor.
The Republican and Bull Moose par-
ties had been reunited and there
were no Progressive candidates for
cither State or National office. Presi-
dent Wilson carried the State by 90,-
000 votes, and Governor Cox was
elected by a vote of 566,201 to 535,-
346. The national ticket this time
polled approximately 60,000 votes
more than Governor Cox.
Then camo the Congressional elec-
tions of 1913 and Governor Cox ap-
peared as a candidate for the fourth
time, this time asking for a third
term. He was elected by a plurality
of 11,000 votes. Senator Pomerene,
also a Democrat, was a candidate for
re-election in the same election. He
was elected over his Republican op-
ponent by a vote of 670,863 to 535,-
846, a plurality of 35,000. But at
the same time fourteen Republican
Congressmen and only eight Demo-
cratic Congressmen were elected.
Senator Harding, of course, has not
been before the people in an election
since his victory in 1914.
On the basis of these figures it will
be seen how interesting a contest be-
tween these two men for Prosident is
bound to be. The Democrats of Ohio
assert emphatically that Governor
Cox will beat Senator Harding in
Ohio, whereas the Republicans are
Just as emphatic in their assertions)
that Senator Harding will carry thei
State. The figures quoted above
show that both men are strong poli-
tically among Ohio voters and that a
case can be made out for each of
them. So there is bound to be a hot
campaign in the State whichever car-
ries, he will probably have very few
voters to spare.—Ft Worth Star-

COOPERATING WITH FARMERS.
Members of tho Texas Jersey Cat-
tle Club at a state-wide picnic held
on the splendid farm of M. J. George
at Hundley, near Ft. Worth July 8,
made arrangements for tho Club's
annual sale at the Dallas State Fair
this fall and considered other im-
portant matters. Collin county was
well represented. W. M. Oibson of
Melissa took a leading part in tho
meeting. He is recognized as ono of
the state's foremost breeders. J. H.
Graves, J. M. Slaughter and H. D.
Loftlce, all Melissa breeders, also at-
tended. A. G. (Pat) Mayes, of Mc-
Kinney, secretary of the Collin Coun-
ty Purebred Livestock Association
was one of the speakers on the pro-
gram. Texas is now the first state in
the Union in Jersey breeding and
our own county ranks perhaps first
of the nearly two-hundred and fifty
counties of tho state for registered
Jersey cattle breeding. McKinney is
proud of those distinctions for our
great county of which it is tho coun-
ty site. On Aug. 3 it will vote on a
$30,000.00 bond issue for the purpose
of erecting a combination auditorium
pavilion on its market square. If
the bond Issue carries, It will Infuse
new lifo in better livestock breeding-
arid better farming and marketing
methods and commend McKinney to
the farmers throughout tho county an
nothing elso can do. By cooperating
with farmers and purebred livestock
men, McKinney will lay deep and
well the foundation of her own great-
er commercial prosperity. Our coun-
ty is preeminently agricultural.Eighty
per cent of Its population live and
work on tho farm. Therefore, what-
ever benefits the farming class most
also benefits tho other twenty per
cent of our population most because

J. L. Chapman, cashier of the Cen-
tral State Bank, Is strongly In favor of
adopting the pavilion-auditorium bond
issue of $30,000 to be voted on Aug.
3 and says he will work for their pas-
sage on that date.
He gives some very important rea-
sons why the bonds should bo voted,
"My Judgement Is that the market
square, together with an adequate pa-
vilion Is tho most forward movement
that McKinney has undertaken.
"As other bond Issues have met
with some opposition, no doubt this
one will have somo opposing factions,
but sure'y no business man will make
any protest and we feel that the Oppo-
sition to this wide awake movement
will be negligible.
"The continued progress of our city
depends upon the spirit and enterprise
of our business mon, and surly no bus-
iness man will oppose tho bond issue.
The erection of a suitable pavilion
added to the beautifying of tho market
square, will add at least 30 per cent
to our trade territory. Many peo-
ple will come to McKinney for 20 and
.'M miles distant. If wo furnish them a
suitable place for public assemblies
and adequate to their needs for their
slock and produce.
"I am not sufficiently acquainted
w:th McKinney to dictate too much
about the various enterprises she
should foster, but will say that I am
a resident of McKinney, largely be-
cause I liko her snap and public spirit,
and trust that this progressive spirit
of push will not wane, but that wo
will bo alert to every movement calcu-
lated to add to hor prosperity and
'Tor tho most part, we depend on
the country for our patronage; then,
we should not refuse to vote tho bond
lsKue If It adds to their comfort and
pre fit, thereby augmenting our trado
territory and prosperity.
"I heartily endorso the movement
for the $S0,000 bond issue and shall
work for It* passage."

MAY OPEN SELF-SERVING
A new feed and grocery business on
a largo scale has about consummated
plans for opening up a self serving
store In McKinney, so It is stated by
ox-County Clerk Walter L. Keen,
who is to be their local manager. The
concern Is the Iudustrlal Transporta-
tion Corporation, with $2,500,000 as-
sets. Mr. Keen states that tills con-
cern has In successful operation al-
ready two hundred and twenty stores.
It Is operating In a number of states
and Is rapidly extending Its business
into new territory. Mr. Keen states
that the company is anxious to get in-
to the McKinney field with one of its
self serving stores. In case it does open
up here, Mr. Keen says that it will
be a new and very attractive pulling
force to bring more people and it
more extended trade to our city.
