The Dallas night captain of po-
i lice just before going off duty at

stolen during the night, and then

The Dallas business ipen and
property owners are sending up
a just kick against the raising of
fir insiuraence rates and threaten
to have their property insured
with companies outside the state,
claiming that the rates in some
cases are next to confiscation.
It does look strange that witli im-
proved facilities for fighting
fires, and the fact that some com-
panies are able to erect fine of-
fice buildings the rates should
still go up. Something to relieve
the situation ought to be done.
The management of the South-
western Poultry Show has an-
nounced that its annual show
will be. held in Dallas January
18-23. Valuable prizes will be
awarded; among which will be
one of $100 for the best pen of
five birds. All classes of poul-
try will be permitted and will
have equal chances under the
standard rule of handicap. It
is stated that this is the largest
single, cash prize ever offered for
one pen. Judges of the show
will be leading poultry breeders
from all parts of the State. En-
tries will close January 13th.

some time, and can tostif that
they have done me moiv good

used. My trouble was a heavy
dull feeling after eating.—David
Freeman, Kempt, Nova Scotia.
These tablets strengthen the
stomach and improve the diges-
tion. They also regulate the liver
aud bowels. They are far supe-
rior to pills but cost no more.

Why has the cement sidewalk
building stopped? Has all the
money been let out on a credit ?
I understand there is more than
$2000 due the city by citizens for
their part of the walks already
built. It is next to jin outrage
as Mexia needs so many more
walks and the work should go
forward. I know of one party
who tried very hard to pay his
one-half for walks but was un-
successful and has since moved
away to West Tcxa leaving ttlie
account unpaid. Let's get to-
gether and better these condi-
tions and if necessary get up a
list of those yet unpaid and the
reason therefor. 4
