Let Lipscomb this spring bust a
hame string but what it bas the
nobbiest little town in the Pan -
From different f parts of the
country come stories of a swin-
dle successfully worked on
farmers who thout they were go-
ing to get cheap groceries. Two
smooth strangers went through
the communities taking orders
for a house in Chicago, pretend-
ing to sell a standard brand of
sugar and flour so cheaply that
every farmer visited took from
$10 to $60 worth, and other things
besides. Because of the low
prices the flour aad sugar had to
be "paid in advance." It is
alleged that in one community
the swindlers picked up-, some
$3,000 and no groceries delivered.
On Friday^evening, the 12th,
Doroth Dohrman and school will
give a Japanese Tea Social and
Bazaar at the Union church. It
will be an elaborate affair of Ja-
pan construction. Parasols,
lanterns and other novelties pe -
culiar to the handiwork of the
Oriental citizen. A bill of fare,
all in particular, unique, nifty,
odd and strange. An ample and
well selected program of amuse-
ment has been arranged for to
Bussard's Pool Hall
Three tables where good order is maintained—A pleas-
ant place to kill time—Your patronage appreciated.
JESS BUSSARD, Prop. Lipscomb, Texas
imuse the audience. Recitations,
singing and artistic slunts in elo-
cution. Something n™, novel,
attractive and superb for an eve-
nings passtime. Don't forget
the date. Don't forget the place.
Don't forget the little folks at
home but biing them and come.
See the exalted extravaganza of
Japanese exquisitness simulate
svmposium supreme. See the
Lipscomb Military -I'and in
orchestral overture. See it, you
are welcome, there'll be no ad-
mission charged :it the door.
If things keep on as they have
been going for the past few years,
it will be much easier for an
American citizcn to go to jail
than it will be to keep out
of jail. Every now and then
some individual or some clique
bobs up with a brand new plan
for turning some of us into crimi-
nals The number of new ways
for gstting a man into jail is sur-
prising s Wisconsin has its
"eugenics law," which makes it
a felony for a couple to marry
without* undergoing a physical
examination. The Illinois legis-
lature, at its present session,
will gravely consider the passage
of a similar criminal statute.
Other States are being asked to
pass laws making it a felony for a
citizen to have any liquor in his
home, even for medicinal pur-
poses. Oue. state has a law
against dancing the tango. The
Indiana anti-cigarette law never
has been repealed, and the state
has, as a result, several hundred
thousand perfectly good citizens
who could be arrested and sent to
jail any day. Perhaps the most
striking development of our gov-
ernment is that the laws are not
made by,all the people nor by
representatives of the people, but
by small cliques, highly organiz-
ed and tremenduously energized
over particular questions. These
cliques are determined to force
their views upon the whole peo-
ple, while at the same time other
cliques are forcing views on other
questions upon them. The ques-
tion is never asked whether the
supposed offenses against the
community are as bad as the pen-
alties inflicted. There seems to
be in the air a mania to find new
ways of imprisoning American
citizens, and yet. is there any
thing that can be as bad for the
individual or the nation as a man
in jail who can possibly be kept
