OUR WORST ENEMY.
The Eagle has earnestly advocated
a mosquito campaign at the beginning
of each year to rid the city of this
dangerous and tormenting pest but
our efforts have brought only indiffer-
ent results. The people have never
come to fully realize its importance
and for that reason public sentiment
. has not made an absolute demand for
the eradication of the mosquito. As it
is none too early to begin laying plans
for a campaign that should be waged
soon after the first of January we
quote the following in regard to this
great enemy of humanity from the
' pen of Col R. T. MUner in the Rusk
"The two families of mosquitoes
that transmit yellow fever and mala
ria have killed more people In the
South than were killed In the civil
- war far more. From the first sottle-
ment of this country until a few years
ago the yellow fever was dreaded
each year and it generally came
sometimes In a mild form and fre-
' auently it amounted to a great plague
which caused death and lamentation
In all the cities of the South. Science
discovered that a certain insect of the
distinguished mosquito family was re-
sponsible wholly responsible for all
.the yellow fever in the world and
that mosquito was summarily put out
of business and yellow fever has been
heard of no more. The awful dr.ead
that came each succeeding summer Is
felt no more In the land for the ter-
rlblest enemy of mankind and for
years one that was thought to be a
scourge sent by Providence and there-
fore unconquerable yielded to the
power of the laboratory and passed
out of existence. Hut there Is a close
relative of the yellow fever mosquito
as numerous In The South as grass-
hoppers in Kansas and the poison
which they dally and nightly Inject
Into the bodies of human beings Is
killing thousands and thousands be-
sides spreading poverty and suffering
over the land. Positively mankind In
the South never confronted an enemy
like the mosquito- that transmits ma-
laria. ' Good men from the pulpit and
the rostrum bemoan In sackcloth and
atthes the terrible fate of Mexico and
Europe and fall to rail the congrega
tion's attention to the enemy that Is
present right then and there In-
trenched and Yortlfjod In a thousand
waye. with recruits dally too numer-
ous to mention. Do you Imagine that
you hear the daily roar of cannon and
rifle that has been going on around
Verdun for months? Have you not
Imagined that you heard the groan's
of the woundod as they passed from
life unto doatht night then at the
very moment when you were agonis-
ing over the story of carnage suffer-
ing and death as Teuton and Celt mot

left for Ihe voter to write the name
np to be changed and a blank line
of the man for whom he wishes to
vote. This plan too may result In
the election ot a Republican as the
Republicans have their nominee and
he will of course receive the full Re-
publican vote. The Democratic vot
ers may not take the time to write the
name of any candidate upon their bal-
lots that Is not In sufficient numbers
to Insure the election ot a Democrat
Also there may be several candidates
and doubtless will and this may
cause such a split .among those who
do write their candidate's name upon
their ballot as to still result In the
elortlon of the Republican. Taken all
together It Is quite a puzsle and If
some concerted action of some kind
Is not taken the "solid Democracy"
of Texas may be busted.
The establishment of a flouring mill
fin Dry an Is a matter of congratulation
for the whole people. It Is not only
an Important addition to the commer-

many other ways. It gives employ-

swelling the retail business of the
city guarantees the quality ot our

more manufacturing Industry for

tance and dignity generally. The en-
terprise of the tawlrrs founders of
the business Is to be commended.

Men Who Art High Up With the Ford
Automobile Concern Gathering
Data In Brixos County.
To realize the magnitude of the op-
erations ot the Ford automobile indus-
try without talking to some of the
high up officials would be impossible.
Messrs. Johnson and Rohde local
Ford dealers have aa their guests In
this city for three days Mr. W. M. Mc-
Donald assistant manager of the
Houston branch; Mr. L. R. Daniels a
road man who works directly under
the home office and Mr. Harry Davis
a draftsman in the Houston branch.
The object of the visit ot these
three gentlemen to thla city and coun-
ty la very extensive. In the first
place few people know one-tenth ot
the data that Is kept by the Henry
Ford Interests In the United States. If
yon were told that this concern knows
every man who buys an automobile of
any descrfptlon In the V-nlted States
It would be bard to believe; neverthe-
less it Is a' fart. These gentlemen
now In llryan are getting data on the
condition of the crops the condition
of the roads and everything In the
way of Improvement that Is going on.

ditions over the Houston territory 1
