We are enjoined to "search the

fcave eternal life." In them we also
find food for our every alplrltiiul
reed InHplratlon and hope for our
depressed spirits and balm for every
wound of our hearts. Few more
beautiful tributes to the scriptures
have ever been penned than the fol-
lowing by State Press of the Dallas-

and out of their leisure they drew and
left to the world an unfailing source
of philosophy. There is a verse of
scripture adapted to practically every
heartbeat. If we are sorrowing there
is Joy for us In the Word. If we arc
aunting ourselves or making broad
our phylacteries there Is warning for

book Is exaltation to the highest alti-

depths. There are songs for those
whose hearts overflow with gladness
there Is the mood of the dance and
the sighs of the lovers. The outcries
of the prophet who with uplifted

WILL BAILEY MAKE THE TRY?
They can all speak out In meeting
as often as they like but if Joe Bailey
makes the race for the Senate the
fight will center all upon him. He is
going to be the factor. Temple Mir-
ror. There Is no question but that It
would be Bailey against the Held and
we believe Bailey would win for it Is
acknowledged by nearly everyone
that Texas needs Bailey's services
In the Senate more than Bailey needs
the position. Thousands who never
toted for him before openly declare
their intention of supporting him
should he become a candidate
A most significant admission comes
from Collier's National Weekly a
paper that has for years been one o!
Senator aBlley's most relentless ene-
mies. It says the Senate needs Bailey.
That while It may have opposed him
In the past it realizes now of what
Inestimable value his services were
to the Nation and that conditions de-
mand his return. Bailey is stronger
now than he ever was and If he de-
cides to go to the Senate it will in-
deed be Bailey against the field with
the odds favorable to the ex-Senator.
It has been intimated by some one
that George Kiddle announced for the
Senate In the belief that he Is the
logical man to try conclusions with
Joe Bailey. Waco Times-Herald.

Court to assume functions which are
not vested in it by the constitution

sion of the Legislature to locate sev-
eral new normal schools In the State
Is held to render the law inoperative.
There has been much rivalry between
different towns In the designated dis-
tricts for the location of these
schools but all to no purpose under
this sudden turn of affairs. It is a
great pity that the Legislature Is un-
able to get aa firm a grasp on its
legitimate functions as the Supreme
Court has. The court was eminently
correct In its action. Houston Post.
The Supreme Court is no doubt
w ell pleased that it can get this "firm
grasp" upon its legitimate functions.
Few people are willing to voluntarily
act as Judge In -a baby show much
less decide between competing towns
for the location of a State normal.

than a egetable corp and If our
farmers by means of a cannery could
only find a market for all they could
grow there la nothing they could turn
their attention to that would be more
profitable. The Kagle would like to
aee the Commercial Club take up the
matter of a cannery for Bryan.
The waste of war Is brought home
more forcibly to us when we read the

man of England of that name.

of ringing welcome.
