It was in the school days of
1906-7, that a young lad, who was
in the senior class of the Mes-
quite High School, found himself
between two goals. At first lie
h^d started in school, working |'
that he would some day return
when she would become his wife.
He located in Oklahoma City, but
his heart was at Mesquite, for
the young girl had kept it-
1 though she might not have
J known it. In Oklahoma City he
| secured a trood position and also
a fine hoarding place, with a
his way and studying hard, will) j family, where there was
only one purpose in view, and j *1' .V(>Lin^ 11, tho only heiress of
that was to get an education and )' vv'>a"l'.y family. 1 he young
teach school, But, as is always j Inan a'sn finds that the young
the case, there was a young girl i K''' herself has considerable
going to this school and who
was in the senior class also.
This young girl was very bright
in her studies and attractive in
her ways—so much so that the
young lad, who was laboring
hard with only one end in view,
soon decided, after watching her
attractiveness and brightness in
her school work—that there was
another goal of equal reward
that he would like to reach, and
beginning then he labored with
both goals in view. As tho end
of school was drawing near, he
began to plan for his summer
vacation and to make plans to
meet the young girl as often as
possible, which he did at church
and at social events. He had
now almost stepped from be-
tween the two goals and only had
one in view and that was not the
one of teaching school.
After the summer months
were spent and vacation days
were over the young lad decided
logo to Oklahoma, taking with
him—not the heart of the young
girl as he wished—but the hope
property in her name. He does
not pay much attention to this
fact, but goes own about his

Corpus Christi,Tex., June 11 —
The 36th annual session of the
Texas Press Association, which
began herw Thursday, June 10,
ended Saturday afternoon, June
12, but Mrs. Davis and T are so
delighted with "the Naples of
the Gulf" that we remained
ovet. We will probably go up
to San Antonio Tuesday morn-
ing and spend the afternoon of
that day there, as our friend
Representative I). A. McAskill,
is anxious to take us over tho
city in his car.
1 have attended nearly all the
annual meetings of the Texas
Press association for the past ten
or twelve years, the exceptions
being when I was kept at home
in one or two political campaigns.
The meeting of the Press As-
sociation just closed, was, in my
opinion, the best in the history
of the Association. The next
best was when the meeting was
every citizen of Corpus Christi
is glad that we are here.
1 had not had the pleasure ol
visiting Corpus-Christi siufe the
meeting of the Press Association
here in 1906, though i have often
wanted to come back. In those
nine years the town has grown
remarkably, having fully dou-
bled in population. It is now an
up to date little city with a pop-
ulation of between 15,000am! 20,-
000. And it will keep on grow-
ing and my prediction is that it
will not be but a few years be-
fore it will have a population of
Entertainment features pro-
vided by the citizens of Corpus
Christi for the visiting newspa
per men, members of their fain
ilies and guests included auto
rides, one of which wound up
with a sea food lunch at Ward
Island, seven miles up the coast,
bathing parties, dance, recep-
tions, banquet, smoker, and con-
cluded with an enjoyable sail Sat-
urday afternoon. It was a de-
lightful program, but I am glad ;
it is over, because I can not
stand that pace for more than J
held here nine years ago. That .about three days at a time, and
is putting it pretty strontr for
Corpus Christi, but none too
strong. The bay, the breezes
and the ideal climate combine to
make this an ideal pl.ice, hut the
best feature about Corpus Christi
is the genuine hospitality of the
people. Everywhere the Press
Association meets we are treated
nice and shown many courtesies,
but as a rule, especially in the
larger cities, the task of provid-
ing entertainment and shewing
hospitality to the visiting news-
paper men is left to a compara-
tively small number of peo|>le.
Not so with Corpus Christi.
Every person with whom we
come in contact seems anxious
to impress us with the fact that

year in El Paso and another good
time is in store for those who at-

and neither the Association or

BILLION BUSHEL WHEAT CROP
THE One great, cheering item of news that
again makes us realize the magnificence of
this country, is the "billion bushel" wheat report re-
cently issued by the grovernment. Disasters
abroad, in the country south of us, on the sea—
rumbling in the Orient—none of them can take
from us the thought that this is the granary of the
The May report of the government places the yield
of wheat at a billion bushels, and the condition ol the
crops at ninety-two and nine-tenths per cent. A year
ago the report prophesied a yield of 630,000,000 bush-
els on an average condition of ninety-five and six-tenths
per cent. The final estimate, however, was twenty-
five million bushels greater.
The average pricc of wheat on the farms throughout
the country on May 1 was $1,396-10, compared to 83.9
cents a year ago.
At the time the government report was made, the
great commercial agencies of the country reported
favorably on business conditions in the United States,
the bank clearing being larger, collections better and

"A subscriber," who contrib-
utes to nearly every paper, large
' or small, at some time or other,
wrote a lengthy article in the
last issue of the Tickvi lie Tidings.
He is a very fine writer, and al-
ways gives out some opinions by
freight that the editor is afraid
' to express.
A toad frog, that had been
spending the winter somewhere
under the postofflce, unbe-
knownst to the Postmaster, came
out the other day for summer,
and took a stand in front of the
postoftice. The Postmaster says
he is imposed on more than any
other public official.
