Aboard the Oscar II.
According to late dispntehua from the Ford
peace ship the party is about to break up in a
war over the President's program of preparedness.
Home assort they will return home on the next
ship sailing for America while others will continue
the journey to the end. So far as results are eon
corned as was generally known and admitted when
Uie ship sailed Ford will accomplish just about as
'much as did General .lacob S. Ooxey when he
marched his army on Washington some years ago
and will bo regarded in about the same light by the
public. Donison Herald

LAST CALL FOR TICK ERADICATION.
Saturday Dec. 19tlr is the day set for the people
of Taylor count to decide tlio cpiistioli: "Will
Taylor county he rid of ticks!" The lleportcr is
of the opinion that the proposition is a good ojie.
We have' no stock but experienced stockmen tell
tia that ticks are a bad thing therefore we shall
veto to eradicate the ticks. We are always willing
to help do whatever needs to be done.
VIENNA BELIEVES U. U WILL ACT QUICK.

eate Unit Vienna is "expecting the I'nited States to
ask for the recall of the Austrian Hmbassy. That
part of it ih easy but should it be done and Austria
sink another ship under the same conditions it
w&nld mean something that would border close to
war. -The situation presents a most serious Hues'-
' It is almost too late to urge tin- people to do their

children and we are all children look from year

up to thin time do it now. Don't wait until the last
moment and then begin rutjhing over town wihl-

Straightening the Record
Taolo Carraiio is the Italian minister of the
treasury. He is an optimistic Latin. In asking the
chamber of deputies to pass a big war loan he pre-
dicted that the war should end before the close ot
dune 1017. If his prediction comes trim then
Democratic leaders should he hopeful of success
in 11)10. Peace just now won't piny the devil with
the plans of the faithful and give the donkey a
vision of husks. The clover patch is much more
inviting to a Democrat than the thistle patch
Fort Worth Record
.Stabbed in the house of a friend 1 bueli nsper-J
sions cast upon an untramnieled democracy by a
republican sheet which makes no pretensions to
democracy would sound well but coming from "tin-
Farmers' Friend " and the "Mirror of Democracy"
it sounds shallow and sordid.'
They say that some charitable ladies of Houston
recently visited a bereaved woman and gilvu her
$2r to pay her linshnud's burial expenses. The
money was in silvery coins and dollar bills. One of
those angels of mercy found after she left the house
that she had dropped one of bur gloves. She re-
turmd to get it and upon opening the door she
i beheld the corpse sitting up counting the money.
Can you beat it ? Houston Tost.
That was a severe jolt to the lady who no doubti
expected to see her name in the papers as a genu-
line philanthropist. Mut along about this time of
thd yea;- we have no doubt a great many people
would throw off the grave Clothes for a great deal
less than funeral expenses.
HAD NO PART IN MADERO MURDER.
k Do ha Uarra declares that he had no part in the
murder of Madero and knew nothing of the coward-
ly act for several hours after it was committed.
Wo ate glad that he told the world" that he is inno-
cent of Mudoro'h blood. De La Uarra has always
impressed us as a man of some ability and in a
way a clean politician. The death of Madoro will
alwas be one of the dark blots upon the history
of Mexico and every man who can should free him-
iolf of guilt in the plot.
GERMANS WILL ATTACK SALONIKI.
The rtnnouneoment comes from Kurope that the
(iQWiaiib will attack Salouiki the old bible city of
Thossalonica and that nu-aiur that they will rtiko
the city if this campaign shall result as have all
the others undertaken by the Central I'owers The
allies are using the city as a babe of operations for
the Ibilkau armies but they will need to do some
hard fighting to hold it it the. Hermans undertake
to drivo them out.

Quite frecnientlj we hear of the Xavarrn count v

passed. Which is but another uvfdcncu of the
value of these annual exhibits1 It Is a strong argu-j
ment in favor of the movement being inndo by the
Merchants Assoeiutjion for a permanent county
fair. Nawirro county is big enough to organize
a fair and interest sufficient has been aroiued by
the annual farm nml-coni exhibits to inaku it n. suc-
cess from the standpoint of farm exhibits and at-
tendance. We should have a county fair. .Many

II) Juy E. House.
No city of ."i0UO .should be without some form of
annual exposition. It serves to get the people to-
gether and keeps them in closer touch one with
tlio other. It makes business brisk for the mer-
chants and jars looe considerable tight money.
It wakes the people to a realization of their sec-
tion's importance In commercial ami agricultural
ways. It is a good thing for any city.
The Jti'iiortur is aware that iver.vthint' that is
really worth doing cost eonsiderably effort yon
it believes that one of the easiest ways to make
money mi the farm is to have u?lot of turkey. A
ease in point is that of M. II. Wyatt of Nugent who
woljl 125 turkeys to local dealeru for $227.00. Of
course turkeys eat some grain yet it Is equally
tnip tliat tu'rkeyb destroy insets by the millions
and when winter comes they sell for fancy price.
Hid Jhure is always a market and heavy demand for
thum. So farmer can make uut a .better program
UutU the que which includes two good brood sows
six dairy cows 200 hens ami 100 turkeys. With a
VOUIPY9 strungth like that a farmer b ready to make
Jiis spaudiug inoiiej out of the cotton crop.
The Saturday Evening Post is not alarmwl over
the daijgor which the United Status may face in
being forced into a war with foreign nations. The
Post fcayi.: We do not behevo the I'nited States is
exposed to the dangers of a big war today in a high-
er degree than it has been any time the last 100
ysar. W'tt do not believe war has always beeu a
possibility." The Reporter is not so optnnistie as

China's Political Mix-Up
China's brief experience under the republican
form of government appears to be drawing to a
close. Yuan Shi Kai like Caesar did uotuaut to
Itucept the crown and pushed it from him auguring-
ly when the eouueil of state o'ffered him the reins
of pouer. Unlike I'iiusar however a second offer-
ing proved irresistible. Tempted by the prospect
of making himself permanent head of a nation
which numbers over 100000000 people and of
rounding a dynasty which will perpetuate his name
as bovert-ign of thosy people he allowed himself to
be persuaded. He has accepted the throne and his
t'orouation will oeeiir at the earliest convenient op-
portunity probably about the first of thu ear
Meanwhile there haw been rumbling of diseou-
tent. Uu the ver daj ot injurs acceptance man
lfusto yvt-ra issued b patriutiu Chiiussu urgauwa-
tions m vftrious part of the world denouncing his
action ami announcing an intention to resist his
usurpation b' foree. Further internal develop-
meuts iniiy1 be tfxpeeted as a matter of course in
whielt Japan is likely to tak an active interest.
Thi republican form of government as employed
iti4ihma-icaiLii -l.i?ht. nMlffjett;ju? nPht old juiqii-
rehbil form. AbonLJIie only difference was m
vhaugmg the nme atuTthe ruling head. Dr. Yuan
is the main guy just like his prideewssors Mere.
Ills power i almost absolute. China's failure to
urhe tlw change does not detraet anything from
tile alue of a republican form.
