To Odd FeUows.
Corsicana Tex. May 3 James
L. Autry. grand master I. O. O. F.
of Texas has issued a call to all
Odd PeUows in Texas in conse-
quence of the Cisco disaster and
appointed the three leading offi-
cers of each and erery lodge a
special committee to solicit contri-
butions from the members of the
order. "These funds to be prompt-
ly forwarded to C. G. Morgan W.
F. Shook and G. C. Falun our
grand secretary all of Dallas who
are hereby appointed our almon-
ers in this behalf and they under
my direction will see to a proper
application of the money."

falling off and needs growing

the situation in Cisco to-night-Only
81264.13 and a bill of lading
for two cars of lumber. The
building committee have thor-
oughly examined and find that the
houses they thougnt would be ea-
sily repaired are total wrecks; not
a residence in all Cisco but will
have to be rebuilt and no lumber
or money to do it with. Let any
one who may doubt that this town
is a total wreck come here mid
sleep for a few nights on a plank
with a box for a pillow. Colonel
Byrd and his force have carefully
examined the debris but contrary
to expectations have exhumed no
dead bodies and doesn't think
there are any dead beneath the

of the building could a card game
be found. This too in the face of
a law on the statute books prohib-
iting card playing in public places.

The Laplanders sleep in a big

It is said to be a geological fact
that gold strata underlie Philadel-
phia. The idea of the church spire
was originated in the twelfth cen-
tury. Dissection of human bodies by
medical students has been prac-
ticed since B. C .'510.
Xiueteen of the pensioners of
the war of 3812 are over 100 years
old six of whom reside in Ver-
mont. Fifty-seven thousand live hun-

Abilene is to have a cotton
seed oil mill in operation in time
to work up this season's crop of
seed. This is good news for the
fanners of this Section as it will
furnish a ready cash market for
their cotton seed at probably anj
increase on last season's prices.
Having in view the fact that the
wheat crop has been seriously
damaged by the dry weather the
Pree Press would advise Haskell
farmers to put in all the cotton
they can. If they wilt supplement
this with large forage crops of
sorghum millet dhurro milo
maize etc. for the benefit of their
stock and the corn crop comes
through in fair shape Northwest
Texas will yet be all right. Has-
kell Free Press.
According to the eleventh cen-
sus there are in the United States
143 seperate denominations of
which 13 are organized Baptist
bodies 10 Lutheran 17 Methodist
and 15 Presbyterian. These fam-
ily groups differ but slightly not
1-.X- . a 1 i !!
enough to warrant a distinct life
and the great denominational fam-
ilies are as one in so far as essen-
tials are concerned. A proper re-
duction of each group to a single
family would eliminate about 100
of the 140 titles which now repre-
sent our American religion. The
remainder might be happily re-
duced and made more efficient bv
union in some form. A Clergy-
man in St. Louis Bepublic.
D.K. Allison of Travis county
says he saved his sorghum seed
this year 150 bushels as he has
done before by throwing in green
cedar limbs as the corn or seed is
thrown: in bin. These cedar limbs
will keep out weevils.
There seems to be some virtue
in kicking. The press of southwest
Texas as well as the representa-
tives from this section have been
kicking hard at the way in which
the state government has ignored
its claims. The appointment of
A. J. Baker of San Angelo as
temporary land commissioner in-
dicates that the governor has bad
the offending southwest restored
to its place on his map of Texas.
There are one-fourth as many
horses in the United States as
there am human inhabitants.
Under these conditions it scarcely
seems that any person should be
compelled to walk.
Beef steers on the western ran-
ges are coming out of winter in
such line flesh and form that ship-
ments to the markets will undoubt-
edly begin several weeks earlier
than common. As a rule the first
shipments sell better than later;
ones but quality must be consid-
ered. The earlier in the season
you can turn off ripe cattle the

The average weight of last years
crop of wheat as calculated from
returns of millers and corre-
spondents to the depertment of
agriculture is 57.5 per measured
bushel which is slightly under
the average for a series of years.
r"""!The late drouth extended over a
large portion of the state and is
therefore not chargable to Wes-
tern Texas a fact which our farm-
ers should consider when they
feel inclined to disparage their
own section in fact they are de-
cidedly better off than the people
of some other section as they
have a longer planting season and
a wider range of products to rely
upon. Haskell Free Press.
The man who is unnerved by a
single failure who is disheartened
by one stroke of ill-fortune who
is ready to quail before adversity's
angry gaze without a single strug-
gle is not suited for any of this
world's "bounties"! He is pot of
that Cyclopian brown that the
term man implies. Success is
often built upon many failures and
he who would attain it must
''have a heart for any fate'' that
may overtake him on the way.
A newspaper proofreader at
Hereford recently wrote to Rider
Haggard pointing out two gram-
matical blunders in "She." Mr.
Haggard sent a letter of thanks
inclosing a cheek for a guinea as
a reward for vigilance.
An Indian of the Chickasaw na-
tion lost his squaw that ladv hav-
n doped with a white man. Ho
sought for her a long time and a
long distance and when he had
found her he placed in her hands
one hundred and fortv dollars
which he said was her prooertv
and which she had inadvertently
left behind her in the precipitation
of her departure. "The Indian
said" says a dispatch "that he
would not kill a man for a woman
whom he could no longer respect.''
Here is our noblest wisdom and a
civilization the beauty of which
cannot be reasonably questioned
It is the general prediction that
pork will be held up to its present
high price for two or three years
at least and as all indications
point to the accuracy of this pre-
diction the farmer who raises
good supplies of feedstuff and
pays attention to his hogs is the
one who will come out on top

As a rule the better profits
from the farm are obtained by
growing a variety of crops and
feeding them out to a variety of
stock on the farm and marketing
in this way the risk of failure are
much less and the various pro-
