Rev. Boone Hunter preached at the
A'tist Christian church to a good sizu'l
congregation Sunday at 11:00 o'clock.
His sermon was well delivered and
held the attention of his hearers close-
ly to the end. He brought to them a
practical message of service rather out
of the ordinary because of the fact he
dellvored it on a plane of simplicity
inuonched with utrong logic challeng-
ing the thoughtful inind to a new
way. The spiritual past of men and
women can be developed and made
strong in the manner that the physi-
cal man is built up. Exercise, constant
use will do the work and the returns
on the so-called "investment" is a
sure result of right living and re-
ligious practice. It Is the only way to
llvr a successful and happy life. Mr.
Hunter is a Collin born and reared
young man. As a minister and teach-
er he has advanced rapidly. On August
2(>th. he will sail for Japan where he
•will teach in a Christian college In To.
kio said to be the third largest of the
wiorld In point of population. His
many friends are proud of him and
Are expressing for him best wishes for
his future in his clioaen field of life
labor. He graduated from Transylva-
nia Christian Church College of Ken-
tucky a few years ago. Ho served as a
soldier in France '*ider the Stars and
Stripes, during which tline he was on
several occasions on the firing lines In
battle. He received Ills A. M. dsjruo at
Vauderbllt University ul Nashville.

The Sunday school was well attend-
ed. The Men's Class continues to be
a feature of this department. Prof.

tation gave an interesting talk* on the
lesson subject. He reviewed the faults
and virtues o' Imvid to the latter's
credit because of the King's loyalty to
Johovah. Itov. Boone Hunter followed
with a brief inspirational talk. Among
the other visitors to the class and
church service were I)r. W. P. Wol-

VOTERS MAKE IT
By the declslvo vote of 238 to 72—
more than three to one, forward look-
ing voters suld in Tuesday's election
that they authorized tha issuance of
$30,000 worth of bonds for the pur-
pose of erecting a livestock sales
pavlllou on the market square prop-
erty owned by the olty and for hard
surfacing the entire block of land.
It Is planned to erect a building
that will be suitable for many other
purposes, such as housing the county
fair exhibits, large crowds etc. It 1b
expected that the building will be 90x
200 feet with the largest capacity for
livestock and agriculture sales and
exhibits and for holding crowds of any
building In the entire county. The
type o^ the building will be decided
upon by the city commission.
IlUHlnctiH men, farmers and stock-
men are of the opinion that this Is
one of the most Important stops for-
ward McKlnney has ever made. Bvory
one realizes that Collin county Is pri-
marily nn agricultural and livestock
county and that upon these industries
chiefly rests the future of our county.
McKlnney, queenly, progressive, nlort
city, now steps forward and extends
the hand of welcome to these wealth
producers and gives them a perma-
nent and lasting Invitation to hold
their sales and shows here and to
make the county seat their head-
quarters and trading center. McKln-
ney Is thus setting an example that
will enlarge her trade territory and
that will enable our business men
and organizations to better cooperate
with farmers and stockmen, thereby
helping to make Collin county even
more extensively known as one of
the nation's richest and finest agri-
cultural counties and will help build
toward the fondest hopes of those
business- like farmer—stockmen who
want to see their county pointed to
and recognized ns the livestock cen-
ter of the Southwest.
In voting the bonds McKlnney rec-
ognized and fulfilled one of our great
necdp and added to tho chain of pto-
gr. sslve and worth-whllo accomplish-
ments of the past few years and by
this act our city will doubtless win the
applause and commendation of the
McKlnney is perhaps tho first town
In Texas that will havo a municipally
owned livestock pavilion and this
will serve as quite an attraction.
Such events as tho county Inter-
scholastlc meet and other large gath-
erings that have heretofore gone to
other places can be accomodatod in
this big new $30,000 building.
The need of this building was
recognized nbotit two years ago and
for the past two yoars President W.
A. Dowell and Secretary C. W. Smith
of tho Business Men's Association and
others' havo worked zealously on plans
to get such a building. In this they
had Iho cooperation of tholr mem-
bers and othorti of tho city. Tho farm-
ers and stockmen havo repeatedly
coniriK nded tho efforts being made In
Mi Kinney along these lines.
It Is another great victory won ' y
tho p"iiyro'Hlve element who nio
loo.tinr to the future and desire to
• i*<11• I .1 greater McKlnney.
Now, let tho people turn tholr t-1-
tentlon to making this n successful
. t Uiirine mid to other plans for t: e
< «hittn ie.I upbuilding of the Quicn-
llost Pttle city In tho best eoun:v -n
the manriest state of the moat frr-
warding looking nation In the word.

THOMASON AND LOONEY
SUPPORTERS FOR JCEFF
rindiie to open grocery
store about september 1.
W. B. Kindle la having a frame
store building 18x31 feet erected at
the corner of Short and Wilcox
streets. About September 1 he will
open up a stook of groceries. Mr. Kin-
dlt will adopt the cash and carry plan.
He has been In the grocery business
In McKlnney for 31 years.
Of all the arrant nonsense which
lia.< emanated from Bailey head-
quarters in Houston the statement
tliul 75 per cent of the Tliomason
and Liooney supporters will support
1-alley against Neff is the most rldcu-
No doubt in El Paso county, Mr.
Thomason was supported as a homo
man by some of Bailey's friends, and
In Hunt county Mr. liooney was sup-
purled as a homo man by some of Mr.
But the rank and file of Thomason
and Booney supporters in Texas ar
everlasting and against Bailey.
Thomason anu Booney made '.ho
spring campaign against Bailey, and
it was their fight against the former
senator that mustered Texas men and
women behind their candidacies.
Mr. Bailey has mad3 it a point ev-
er;, whore to denounce Thomason anl
Booney. He has proclaimed them in-
competent, narrow and unfit He has
dnrounced tholr supporters as "sisters
and sissies." He has modestly told
their supporters that he himself was
the only "real man" In the race.
And the anti-Bailey men lined up
behind Thomason and Booney because
they regarded the two as patriotic,
Liroadmlnded and fit men and be-
cause they were ugainst the things
thut Bailey stood for.
Mailey represents exactly the same
things that ho represented before tho
May primaries. He is exactly the same
kind of man he was before tho May
And so far as Bailey Is concerned,
9;> per cent of the Thomason and
I^ooney supporters aro the same anti-
Bailey men and women "sissies and
sitters" Mr. Bailey called thein—they
were before tho May primaries.
There are about 160,000 of them,
possibly more, and they aro massing
behind Neff to give an anti-Bailey
niujorlty that will forever dispose of
tho modest statesman from the Dls-
trlct of Columbia as a political factor
In this state.
They are preparing to administer in
a most Impressive way tho "kindness"
of overwhelming defeat the former
senator so earnestly craved at Atlanta,
but. which his idolaters are pouring
but their slush funds to avert.
It Is too into for the .o men to emit
their unctuous flattery upon tho
friends of Thomason and Ijooncy. That
stuff Is as disgusting to them as it
Sixty-six per cent of the voters who
participated In *.he primaries voted for
Neff Booney and "Phomason with one
chief purpose In view and that was
to defeat Bailey, the old liquor ma-
chln, tho soreheads, the grumblers,
tho fomenters of class hatred, the en-
omles of woman suffrage, the enemies
of democracy, the denunciators of
churches and preachers and tho odds
and onds of reaction that aro mus-
tered behind Balloy's candidacy.
For the most part their support of
Neff, Thomason and Booney had In
view that supreme objective, and now
they have tho battle in tholr own
Tho Bailey managers aro wasting
time In simpering and slobbering over
the supporters of Thomason and
I.ooney, who aro now petting behind
l'at Neff to drive their victory homo.

MAY BE BUILT
FOR NEXT PICNIC
A big concrete, fire-proof pavilion Is
a strong probability for next year's
big McKlnney picnic and reunion.
This is the opinion of Col. J. L. Dog-
gett, president of the Association,
which owns the 26 acre picnic tract
of land. The Association waa charter-
ed a number of yeara ago and usually
nets a neat little sum every year,
which muat be turned back Into per-
manent improvements o ^ the ground
or in the purohase of adnitlonal acre-
age. This proposed pavilion will be
large enough for public speaking pur-
poses, to house the band and will
contain two rest rooms—one for the
ladles and one for the men. Col. Dog-
gett stated 1that while sufficient funds
were not now in the treasury of the
Association, yet the balance of the
needed amount could be secured.
Col. Doggett stated that the twenty-
first annual three day entertainment,
July 29, 30 and 31, was successful to
a very gratifying degree In every re-
spect. Weather waa ideal, the crowds
were Immense, the amusements and
concessions wero well represented
and amply furnished their quota of
picnic amusement and enjoyment. The
McKinney band furnished a quality of
music never exceeded In the whole
history of the Association. The order
was first class and no accidents oo-
cured to mar the success or enjoyment
o# tho three days entertainment.
Rotary Club Commended.
Col. Doggett spoke In most com-
mendatory terms of the Rotary Club
in organizing the splendid parade
with which the picnic opened. He com-
mended the enterprise of the mor-
el-ants and institutions that decorated
floats and carriages for the par.ulo.
He also piaieed the McKlnney Cavalry
ttoop for their turn out in loading
the parade. Col. Doggett savs that
the hospitality of Gen. E. W. Klrk-
patrlck and wife In offering their
splendid home and cooperating with
the Daughters of the Confederacy In
Bervlng dinner to the old confederates,
was a most Important feature In the
success of this year's reunion. Col.
Dpggett makes an ideal president. He
is public spirited and a good speaker
and spares no effort in having the
Association to dispense unstinted
hospitality to the great crowds that
never fail in attending these great
annual events held In McKinney every
summer. Col. Doggett andthe Associa-
tion appreciate the cooperation of
those who managed the baby show,
athletics or in any way aided in mak-
ing the picnic a success.
At this tlmo when the State Health
Department is waging a vigorous cam-
PR ign for tho extermination of rats
bcause of die bubonic plague out-
break In Texas coast towns, many cit-
ies and towns ovor the states are tak-
ing an interest in killing rats. Not
only are the rodents considered a
menace to health but they are report-
ed doing enoimous damage in many
sections. Soma Collin county farm-
ers have reported that the rats at a
eating much corn and threaten to
cause serious loss. No general cam-
paign for killing the rodents has been
started in ''ollin county, but quite a
number of individuals aro making ef-
forts to get rid of the animals to stop
tho ravages of their promises.
The following methods of killing
rate are recommended by the State
Traps—Tho best typo of trnp to usu
is tho ordinary snap trap sold under
tho trade name of "Official," "Hold
liast," and ''Victor."
Tho most effectlvo bait is broad
soaked in bacon grease, or fried ba-
ccn. After baiting tho trap, remove
tho human scent by flaming the trap.
Set trap within two feet of rat hole
or along a runway.
At least two traps should bo kept
baited and set in every building at all
Poison—All standard rat poisons
may be obtained at all drug stores.
Great caution must, however, be ob-
served In tholr umb, as If placed within
roach of small children. Chickens,
etc., Is almost sure to have fatal re-
Break Up Breeding Places—Re-
move wooden floors In barns and out-
houses; elevate wood and coal piles at
least 18 Inches above the surface of
the ground, as these afford splendid
Remove tho Food Supply—Garbago
should be deposited In covered con-
tainers and systematically romoved
If householders Insist on keeping
chickens, rabbits and othor pets,,placo
out just enough food to satisfy them
and thereby leave no surplus for tho
rats. Rats are also great egg and
