From a democratic view point it might have been a

There will be ao "barbarlous Fourth" In Baltimore

Thoro Is a difference In tho tlmo of planting and meth-
ods of cultivation In Central West Texas. Boforo con-
signing your next batch of seed to the ground from
which you expect to receive tho beat returns It you have
not had formor satisfactory experience hunt up tho
man who has been most successful with the particular.
seed you are about to plant and let him give you some
points. Tho man who has produced tho goods is the one
to go to for reliable Information nnd advice in nil lines..
A seed that is worth planting Is worth planting right and
Its cultivation should bo properly looked aftor.
Commenting oh a mention in Tho Reporter of the pass:
ing 'out of tho big West Texas ranches the Fort WorUi
Record pertinently adds: "And tho passing of the
ranches s not without its iconoclasm. There is a world
of romance attached to the old-time Texas ranches. The
men who oporated"tliem wqre the men who blazed the
trail for civilization and the'' men who worked upon them
were'made of the BterneBt s"ort of stuff. The man with
the hoe or rather the man with the Bulky plow how-
ever is aftor all tho chap who makes old Mother Earth'
give up the greatest amount oft her treasure. Where. t
niipn took ten acres to nroduco a $40 Bteer now one
acre will produce a $40 bale of cotton and that's the stuffc
Tho Fort Worth Telegram has kept tab on the Associa-
tion of Commercial clubs since Its nirth and usually has
a representative at tho monthly meetings to tell what was
done. If says: "The Central West Texas Association
of Commercial Clubs met Tuesday in Abilene to. celebrate
its first annual birthday. Meetings have been held month-
ly in the different cities which compose tho membership
and much that is good has been accomplished. Men
prominent in that splendid section of the state aro giving
time and money to. the organization whose objects that
cf directing attention to the matchless soil and climate
of the middle west are being rapidly attamed." '""" v
Tf Shape f tht Karth.
According to the deductions of J. A.
Jeans of Trinity college Cambridge
tho shapo of the earth when it began
to cool and to solidify from a liquid
mass was that of a pear. But Its shapo
could not have been maintained long
against the enormous strains which
would be set up in it as the process of
cooling proceeded and this shape
would gradually glvo place to an ap-
proximately spherical form. Such a
configuration would possess a single
axis of symmetry nnd this axis It Is
suggested passed through a point of
latitude and longitude 0 degrees north
of 80 degrees east Thus Africa tho
continent whoso center above sea level
Is greatest tniiBt bo taken nB tho cen-
ter of tho lnnd hemisphere whllo tho
protuberance which formed tho stalk
of tho pear is submerged in tho Pacific
ocean which now forms tho water
hemisphere. Almost tho only remain-
ing evidence of tho existence of this
protuberance is tho fact that tho axis
of tho pear coincides with tho earth's
greatest diameter. If wo supposo the
pear to contract to a spherical shapo

tive displacements would bo greatest

Meaning of Protocol.
Llkd many other; English words de-
rived from other languages "protocol"
has long since lost Its original mean-
ing It Is derived from tho Greek
"protoB" mennlng first and "kollau"
meaning glue; and meant .originally A
sheet glued In front of a manuscript
bearing tho writer's nnmo and other
particulars. From this the meaning
evolved into that of a rough draft of a
document and was so used by the
Romans who called It ''protocollum."
The definition of tho word as used In
modern diplomacy Is given as a rough
draft of any document or a document
preliminary to some transaction. It
likewise Is defined as "a diplomatic
document or minute of proceeding
signed by friendly powers in order to
secure certain diplomatic ends by

A carload of prairie dogs wore recently shinned from
erkel to Chicago and It arouses the fears of tho Sh'or-
anan Dalley democrat which says: "That is n resource-
'lul man who shipped a car load of prairie dogs to Chicago
last week. He says he will1 sell 'them at two dollars a

Candidates in Taylor county should at least be thank
ful that they are not running for office in Harris county.
Hero is the way the assessments were levied against the
candidates for the purpose of bearing tho expense of hold
ing theprlmary: "The assessment levied against the can
didates for tho purpose of bearing the expense of the
primary are as follows: Representative $30; district
Judge $150; coupnty Judge; $175; county attorney $40;
district clerk $250; county clerk $250; sheriff $250; tax
collector $225; tar assessor $175; county treasurer
$11; county surveyor $100; county school superintendent
$50; commissioner precinct No. 1 $25; Justice of tho
puace $75; constable $25; commissioners precincts Nos.
2 3 and 4 $10." If we had the money required to be-
come a candidate for a county office In Harris we
.wouldn't be a candidate but would transform ourselves
Into a bloated bondholder or become the big It of a

J. G. Brown
In his address at tho banquet Tuesday night Hon. L.
-Tt Dashiel. galdl "Tell tho truth about Texas both nt
lv iMjme and abroad and you will do moro to bring Immigra
tion ana foreign capital to the stato than any other
agency that has ever attempted to do It." If Tho Re-
porter will bo allowed to add to this assertion "and
Wake theijx believe It" it will unequivocally agree with
Weatherford and Mineral Wells should Join hands over
that short distance of 25 miles between the two places
and not sleep overtime until Interurban cars are run

Improvement makes the" task insignificant too small to
bo worthy'of a second thought If some bloated eastern
capitalist who workB along these lines can pot see his
way clear to place his coin in this proposition without
further delay a few of tho enterprising citizens of each
place should come together and get tho small matter out
or tho way by building tho road in ordor that they can
go after bigger things. The Reporter makes no charge-
against Its brother editors of tho Herald and Index
but In all candor and truth after a longdistance view
from this part of the moral vineyard this is the way
the situation looms up. Tho agitation for the line that
was dropped'last year has been resurrected and tho fol-
lowing from the Herald gives hopes that the two little
cities may soon bo tied together -with trolloy wires:
'-There Is golng to bo something doing in intefiTfban cir-
cles this time that will provo of a most beneficial naturo
to Weathorford. Tho men who are undertaking tho en-
terprise are backed by plenty of capital and aro not
going to have to go up against tho raw edgo of a financial
panic ns was tho case with Mr Turner."
