A SUGGESTION TO CUT EXPENSES
An audit of the city books was com-
pleted in October four months ago at
a cost of something like $750 to the
city. The same auditor is back on the
job again to make an audit of the
four months intervening. No wonder
the city can't have any streets. Now
this is not Intended as a "dig" at any-
body; we Just simply mean that the
cross-eyed gent and your humble serv
ant while technically innocent were
morally criminals nor was the city
of Denton nor the State of Texas
helped by our crime. Such things as
this confirm us in our belief that in
politics a wise man has no chance
whatever when a pin-headed galoot
like the author of this Sunday law
gives the public a chance to make a
display of its stall-fed barnyard intel-
ligence. Tioga Herald.

were to come down here to raise corn
they would no doubt plant It out in
window boxes and flower pots.
Madero and his vice president
Suarez have been murdered in cold
blood. If that is not a violation of the
rules of international national state
or any other kind of civilized warfare
what is it? The powers should not
stand for it. The Diaz and HUerta
regime should be wiped from the face
of the earth.

I would not even dare to say
He was not always good
But never had to leave his play

Not even very rude

Who seemed to be quite shrewd.

so funny as Lizzie has happened in
seasons. Lizzie would 'break up" a
mummy." These are the words of
