The rain hull and wind storm of
Saturday night a week ago did con-
KlileruMo damage over the .Mlluno
country. The tomato and corn fields
were damaged by hall mid ruin in
many localities. Some of the grow-
ers lost nearly all their plants while
some loHt only a few. W. T. Pearson
reports his two acres of tomatoes a
complete loss. Tim Woods lost about
a (uurter of an ai re of tomatoes. The
Kelly-Huffman truck farm near town
was damaged terribly. Mr. Kelly had
severul acres of the finest tomato
plants of the season with good shred
tomatoes on them. His large onion
patch was damnged also.
The press dispatches state that
drilling for oil near M llano will begin
In a few days. We hope It Is true
and that they will find the grease.
We believe that all that Is necessary
to find oil in this country Is to try.
The Liberty bridge about six miles
north of M llano was washed away
by the recent rains.
Mllano Is to have a new express
office on the new depot grounds. The
building will be erected on the same
site as the new depot on the west
fide of the tracks and will be about
30x40 feet In size.
Mrs. A. McGregor was the guest
of her sister Mrs. J. K. Miller a few
miles from town Sunday.

ed relatives at Somervllle last week.

day from Caldwell where she has

Secretary of Commerce ftedfield
Gives Astounding Figures of
Our Trade Balances.
Washington. May 4. Secretary or
Commerce Ueddeld today gave out for
publication the following letter which
he wrote to Senator William J. Stone
on our foreign trade amTrts reaction
upon our domestic commercial and
"My Dear Senator I am sure you
will be Interested In the facts re-
specting our foreign trade and Its
reaction upon our domestic i)iiiincr-
clul mid flmimlnl sltuntion.
"Stated brielly. our exports for the
nine months of the fiscal year ending
with March 31 have reached the un
paralleled total or ';!'7Vr . !''" discharge the debts of all our
dl.atlng an approximate total for t ie
full fiscal year of $2.750 000000. The
Parent balance in our favor on mer-
chandise transactions In this foreign
trade up to the 17th of April (the data
for half of April being estimated) is
ITtil.ooo.ooo. I'nless some unforeseen
(hanse In the export movement oc
curs this favorable balance will reach
If not exceed a thousand millions dur
ing the current fiscal year.
"This Is of itself sufficient to make
American hearts glad but certain
factors add greatly to Its weight. It
Includes the month of August In
which the substantial stoppage of our
exports for a fortnight resulted In an
unfavorable balance of nineteen mil-
lions. It Is coincident with the ab-
sence of an expenditure on the part
of American travelers abroad esti-
mated at net about $170000000 per
annum and also with the absorption
bv us of a large but undetermined
amounts of American securities own
ed abroad by reason of whl'h the
Interest on the securities thus pur-
chased Is now paid to us instead of
to others. Not only therefore is the
favorable balance remarkable in it-
self but It Is not Hubejct to the off-
sets that have heretofore been usual.
"It Is of course a pity that we are
still paying such high rates for ocean
transportation that foreign carriers
are thereby prospering at our cost
while we remain In the humiliating
position of depending upon foreign
navies to protect the movement of
our own commerce which we ought
to control but do not From the Far
East as well as from the Atlantic
comes the cry for shipping and It Is
speaking conservatively to say that
the business movement which shows
sii'h wonderful results would be
greatly enlarged if vessels were
available under American control to
take the traffic where and whither
American commerce desired it to go.
"Some Republican editors are funny
fellows more facile in fancy than
familiar with facts. They unite
marked powers of assertion with a
wonderful gift of forgetfulness. The
facts of today being hard for their
digestion they go back a year and
talk about the balance of trade In
April last with both a singular omis-
sion to state the facts of that time
and the facts which followed the en-
actment of the Payne-Aldrlch law of
evil memory. Kveryone knows who
reads but our friends the editors. If
they read do not say It that what
they call the deficit for April. 1!U .
was due to the Increase In Imported
food arising from our own shortage
at that time and the increase of crude
materials which we do not ourselves
produce or produced Insufficiently for
use In our manufactures. On the ex-
port side for that month the decrease
wa in shipments of foodstuffs which
we could not spare and in crude ma-
terials viz. coal and raw cotton. It
was In the Item of fully finished man-
ufactures that the decrease was least.
"Not only therefore were the con-
ditions of which our friends so often
and so feebly write the outcome of
circumstances which had nothing to
do with any law. but they were treat-
ed by our friends with an amusing
forgetfulness of their own past. If
they look at the year following the
Payne-Aldrlch tariff law which be-
gan Its brief career on August fi 1?0!.
thev will find that In March 1010
there was what they call an adverse
trade balance of over nineteen million
dollars. There was no war tlien to
shut off our trade but it was not un
til August of 1011 when the war did
shut off our exports for a time that
Payne law deficit was equaled.
only so but in the yenr which
followed the passage of the Payne-
Aldrlch law there were five months
In which there was an adverse trade
"It is hard to see how our frlenda
the editors therefore escape the con-
clusion that by their own arguments
the law they favor was a failure. It
adds strength to this to point out that
despite the deficit on which they lean-
ed so muc h In April 1!MI. the trade
balance for the ten months of that
fiscal year( which included April.
Miowed a favorable balance of four
hundred nnd seventy millions while
during the ten months ending with
April ll'K) most of It under tlis
rayne-Alilrh h tariff and the rest un-
der the IMngley turltT the favorable
balance was but one hundred and
sixty-eight millions. Therefore on
the basis of the arguments used by
our critics there was under the t'n-
ileiwood tariff the increase of three
hundred millions favorable balance as
compared with that under the I'ayne
"May I point out that the conditions
this year during which l'tesldent
Wilson has so ably guided our ship
of State amid stormy seas are such
that the favorable balance In our
foreign trade Is so great that It al-
ready reaches a sum sufficient to pur-
chase the largest of our great rail-
way systems ond that If It continued
for the balance of the fiscal year Ml
the current rate It would be sufficient
to extinguish the entire Interest-bearing
debt of the National government?
It would several times pay the cost

AI STIN Tex. May 4. Announce-
ment Is made by Commissioner of
Agriculture Fred W. Davis that his
department will make an organized
effort to assist Texas farmers In mar
ketlng their products. He said:
"Thl department has been dolus
all It could with its limited means to
get the people prepared for the mar-
keting of their products. We have
undertaken the subject from a funda-
mental standpoint stressing general
steps leading to profitable marketing.
Where organization is sufficiently
strong Mr. Davis said he believes
the most satisfactory plan Is to sell
In carload lots on the track for cash
"Truck growing." he said "must
not be considered a get-rlch-iulck
proposition but should be compared
with general farming or cotton farm-
ing to see whether it pays."
AUSTIN Tex.. May 4. The plan
for a "Buy It In Texas" campaign by
C. W. Woodman Commissioner of
Labor has received considerable sup-
port from commercial bodies of the
"My idea" said Mr. Woodman "Is
to get Texas manufacturers assem
bled at Austin and form an organiza-
tion to promote the welfare of Texas.
Its Idea would be to build up manu-
facturing Industries thereby furnish-
ing constant and additional employ-
ment for laboring people. Millions
of dollars are being thoughtlessly
sent outside of Texas for those things
which should be bought here at home.
In perfecting the organization every
city of Texas should co-operate so-
liciting every firm association cor-
poration and partnership and men
and women as individuals to become
Mr. Woodman said he believed the
expense of organization should be
borne by the manufacturers.

sociation which was to convene here
