sent after him.
However, we do not anticipate hav-

Tho weeding out process of the
malcontents and undesirables has
has commenced, and when these
troops are mustered Into the Federal
service, Collin county will have tyvo
tioops representing them of which
they may bo Justly proud.
I'Jn lift men ts tire still In progress
and there will still bo a chanco for
good men to get In until wo aro

wo Judge will be In about a week or
ton days. After that date the men will
ho allowed lo continue with their
usual occupations and will not be 1110-

Possibly within a month or six
weeks they will be mustered into the
Federal Horvlco and sent to ('amp
Mabry, Austin, Texas, whoro after a
short period of training they will be
ordered into active service.
We will still accept men between!
tho ages of IR and 45, but we posi-
tively will not consider taking any
one under 18 years of age. We have
been troubled considerably with boys
under the age coining In and swear-
ing that they aro of legal age, en-
listing. and then we have their whole
families and all their friends on our
necks Immediately. We want this to
stop. And we wish to point out that
after a boy roaches Ills eighteenth
birthday he does not noed to obtain
any one's consent to enlist and Ills
parents can not get him out of these
troops so far as we aro eoncernod.
We earnestly request their parents
and friends anil their counsel to
please take the matter u|> with high-
er authority and not bother us with
It, for wo have no authority to turn
a iit'in loose after ho has enlisted.
As It In, we have our bunds full with-

I wive no desire to enlist any man
who will wish to drop out later on.
We only want the class of men and
patriots who will stlcR and can ho

receive little consideration and short

Some of our readers do not appreciate
these severe storm periods they they
should. They are very important. Prin-
cipal rains, frosts, cool spells, warm
spells, good and bud cropweather, for
the whole continent largely depend
on tho sovoro storms. Their Import-
ance varies and is explained In the
forecasts. Hut the reader must care-
fully study the forecasts. The old

I I have not changed my belief that
I the great war •will practically end be-
fore the 1918 crops are matured and
In victory for our cause. Kvorything
is working to that end. Prices of farm
products will go down when tho war
le'idt, hut they will never go to the
previous low prlco. Farmers will get
'an.tile prices for all they can produce

tute tho most Important feature of as-
tronomy and have greater effects on
.the human race, animal and vegetable
Ifo, than all ot'.er effects combined.
,"'he effects of tho Sun nro always
good, of tho Moon and planets souie-
Itimes good anil sometimes bad. More
o" this Inter. The eclipses, the new and
full Moons, magnetise the Karth In
spots, forming cloctrosphoros on and
In the F.arth, Its -waters and Its at-
mosphere. One noticeable case Is tho
formation of electrospheres called
hob s In the air. These form only at
pew Moons that occur near the nodes,
and then only at two limited places.
These electrospheres are organised
bodies of electrons and aro of various
slses. Rain drops and the very small
fog and cloud particles of moisture
are formed In small electroBphcres
which give to them tholr notable and
wonderful spherical formations and,
at tho same time, condense atoms Into
tiny solids that aro always found at
tho center of rnln drops. Official
science hns stated that rain drops
could not form without these very
small Itodles of solid mntter on which
to nssomble the fog particles.

Mc|\itinc) has never witnessed a pa-

indeed, McKinney lias never bad such
cause lo be Jubilant. For MeKlnney
has oversubscribed Iter Liberty ton 11

Collin county has gone over the top

Throughout the triumphant course of
the parade the ba.tul played lively
music. The band truck was followed
by I hi' boy scouts lid by Scout master

were followed by a coupe lit which

First National bank, and .1. Kit Uliea,

proved himself to lie during the Lib-

with people cheering, waving fbi«s

was calculated to frighten tho kaiser
to death should the gentle breeees

Into South Tennessee street, traversed
