TUESDAY SOVEMRER 8(L 11)15.
TOMORROW IS PAY-DP DAY.
According to the program arrang-
ed for Prosperity Week -tomorrow
December 1 is Pay-Up Day. On this
ay it is expected that the bulk of
. i i ii i rii i
uic iiiuuLui uuaeuuuus win ue cum-
vleted so that the time of the busi-
ness men and their employes may be
devoted to caring for the rush of
noliday business nvhich has already i
sEun! The. Pay-Up movement has
fceen successfully inaugurated in
many towns and cities which devoted
whole week to the affair. . In
Srownwood and especially at this;
eason it is expected that one day;
will be sufficient
When the committee of the Cham-
A ler of Commerce was arranging . a
program for prosperity week it was
eaggested that the merchants observe
Fay-Up Day as well as encouragingf
there to observe it Many merchants
. grre accustomed to receiving and fil-
ing a majority of their accounts mak-
ing remittances five or ten days lat-
er. There are various TeaBons for
this practice but it is hoped that on
tomorrow alb merchants will break
this rule and make prompt payments
ef all accounts when presented.
The credit system is the foundation
' American business. There are two
kinds of credit one-of which is valu-
able and the other ruinous; the first
is the" ordinary thirty-day credit and
the second is the long-term "fall pay-
' uient" credit which has "been the bane
ef so many farming communities. The
Monthly credit system is valuable for
us convenience out to mane it con-
venient it must be handled in a co-
operative manner. The customer
.must pay the merchant so the mer
chant can pay his jobber pay his
landlord pay his employes and pay
all other accounts which he owes.
Tho jobber the landlord the employe
and others then pay some one else
.with the same iraofley und 'round
and 'round the money goes paying
accounts all the time and never leav-
ing the community unless dispatched
;for mail order goods. In this eoop-
Terative system trouble arises if one
.jiaan fails to pay another who is de-
pending upon the money to settle ac-
counts which he In turn ow'es. If
hdie customer does not pay the mer-
chant the merchant can not pay his
employes and the employes can not
in turn pay other merchants and the
disarrangements of the plan continues

until the whole community is involy
ed in debt
At this seasons of the year no
business concern can afford. to use
many days' time making collections.
This is the buBy time of the year
the season when the daily salea
reach their highest mark. These
sales must be pushed but the col-
lections must bo made. If there is
a general observance of Pay-Up day
tomorrow therefore the collections
will be made with a minimum loss of
time and every business man t will
be able to devote his time and that of
his employes to handling the profit-
able business which is coming . in
The prosperity which is now being
enjoyed by America is real. The peo-
ple of the United States are not
"whistling to keep up their spirits."
The men who are directing the big
business concerns of the country
know that the prosperity this nation
is enjoying is material and net imag-
inary. When "hard times" comes the
biff business concerns feel its clutches
John H: Patterson is head of the
National Cash Register Company. This
company does such an immense busi-
ness that? it has been called a "trust"
Its business flourishes only -when the
business of the merchants throughout
the country is flourishing. John H.
Patterson thereforej is in position to
know what he is talking . about. ' He

TOM WATSOS'S TRIAL.
Thomas E. Watson is on trial in
Georgia charged with sending ob-
scene matter through the mails. The
objectionable language is alleged to
have been used in articles published
in The Jeffersonian and In Watson's
Magazine. The articles were attacks
upon the Romau Catholic church and
are alleged to have contafnod lan-
guage which has-lieen outlawed: from
Aside from the 'technicalities which
will be introduced in the trial by both
prosecution and defense the case has
a wide interest since its bids fair to
test the extent to which Journalists
may go in using what is ordinarily
termed "strong language." Tom Wat
son has .a reputation for using this j
class of language. He has attacked
many people and many institutions
during his journalistic career and he
does not mince words. His articles
on the Frank case were among the
most' drastic denunciations of Frank
which were ever published. His trial
will bo watched therefore by the
press of the country all the publish
ers being Interested in knowing to)
what extent they may legally go in
expressing their outraged feelings
whenever occasion may arise. With-'
out reference to the Watson case
however we would like to state right
here that there is never a necessity
for a writer to resort to profane or
obscene language In order to express
thoughts worthy of publication.
BUY IT AT HOME.
The petitions asking the Commis-
sioners Court to employ home work-
men In making whatever improve-
ments there are to be made at the
court house are being so liberally
signed that the Court will undoubted-
ly consider them If indeed the court-
house improvements are to be made.
In this connection it Is entirely ap-
propriate to remind the Court that
practically all the materials needed
in the construction ofany kind of a
building-can also be found right herd
We can never . realize how fortun
ate we are until wev compare our lots
with that of other people. Two small
hoys living near the border decided
Sunday to "play bandit" One shot
the other through both legs. Sim
ultaneously the wounded boy's" uncle
was busy getting killed by a locomo

worse than that forget it and cheer

The unhygienic kbss is welli known
to all of us. but now comes a Chi
cago doctor with the warning that" if
baby sucks his thumb it willcause
malformation of the upper jaw
which will in after years "destroy th3 '
overtones that are so vital a part of j
musical speech." Sooner or later j

The City of San Angelo lias declin-i
ed the offer of J. D. Sugg who wanted j
to give the city his street r.ailway sys- J
tern. Mr. Sugg will now tear up thej
tracks and dispose of the property'
unless restrained by action through!
-the courts. The City of San Angelo
was made to choose between the two
evils of accepting an unprofitable
street railway system and agreeing to
operate it at a financial Ipsa or of
losing the street railway service al-
together. The snffragists have been given a
thousand " dollars- expressly for use
in converting" President Wilson to
che support 'of the suffrage amend-
ment to the Constitution. Now that
they have it they don't know what to
do with it. IX however the suffra-
gists are working on the theory that
"every man has his price' there is
a very nire compliment for Precl-
dent Wilson in the fact that ohly one
hundred dollars was appropriated to
secure th'e "conversion" of Elihu Root
Governor Ferguson is not of the "if-
I-'were-Pres:dent" variety. Ho will
leave Sunday night for Washington to
confer with President Wilson rela-
tive to the border situation In an ef-
fort to learn what is to be the pro-
gran of the Federal authorities so
that the Texas authorities may be
guided thereby. If the Governor
would quit meddling with whiskey
politics jwe would be inclined to think
So 'was just about all right.

The citizen of Templ? have been

Texas in the class with Dallas m4
Fort Worth and Austin and San An-
tonio and .Waco.
When Bell county on November
13 voted "dry" up rose the Brown-
wood Bulletin and said in effect to
thr. ttpnnlA nf Tomnld- "Vnn havo
hut now your tov-n is In a class with
old Brownwood and wo are prepared
to give you a run for your money."
And that's the why and the where-
fore of this paper's observation that
"It does somewhat aggravate a citi-
zen of Temple to 'have his town class-
ed with Brownwood" hi3 town that
ho has been dreaming was destined
to pass Waco and give Dallas a run
for her money.
Here we have the McKinney Courier-Gazette
apparently falling Into
the same error as the other two; this
from that paper:
"It does somewhat ' aggravate- a
citizen of Temple to have his town
classed with Brownwood" tartly re
marks the Waco Times-Herald. It

goodness we reckon that McKinney

The Brownwood Bulletin rejoiced
that Temple n& longer had an ad-
vanage over Brownwood and that
henceforth the two towns would be
equals. And the citizen of Temple
remembering his ambition to push his
town into the big city class was na
turally and necessarily aggravated to
have his town classed with Brown-
wood. Why ha would almost as soon
have had it classed with Belton as to
size and possibilities. And you know
how. he swells with pride when lie
tells you that Belton 'was a town of
several thousand Inhabitants before
there was a Temple and how Temple
