AMFJUTAN PRESS ASSOCIATION
There are people who made a hero
of Dan Moody in 1924 for doing nei-
ther more nor less than his simple
doty, who were never for him before,
will probably not support him in the
future, and are against him now be-
cause as attorney general he contin-
ued as district attorney, to fol-
low the path of duty, even though
it led to the exposure of the privi-
leged class—the higher ups.) Our
reason for supporting Dan Moody for
governor is not because we believe
him to be the only smart man in the
race, neither do we think him the
only honest one. For doing his plain
cuty as district attorney and as attor-
ney general, he needs no reward oth-
er than the consciousness of having
been true to his oath of office. But
courage." We predict that if Dan
Moody doesn't get a majority in the
first primary, he will have such a
long lead over his fastest opponent
that it will look extremely discourag-
ing to him or her, as the case may be.
Let's settle the matter by giving Dan
Moody a majority on July 24th.—
JIM SEEKS TO
DEATH OF MRS. M. L. HINKLE
Mrs. G. L. Turner has returned from
Winters where she attended the fun-
eral of her sister, Mrs. M. L. Hinkle,
who died at the santiarium there on
July 7th at 5 a. m. Mrs. Hinkle, at
one time, lived in Granger and will be
remembered by many of our people,
who join in extending sympathy to
the bereaved ones. She was a de-
voted mother and wife and the beau-
tiful life that she lived will be an ex-
ample for others. She is survived by
a husband, four children and a sis-
ter, Mrs. G. L. Turner and mother,
Mrs. J. W. Buckner of Bertram.
OF A BIG MAJORITY
Austin, July 12.—Charging that
evidence has been brught to his atten-
tion that Former Governor Jim Fer-
guson is seeking an excuse to evade
the pledge that Governor Miriam A.
Ferguson would resign if he led her
by one vote in the primary election,
Dan Moody, candidate for governor
issued a statement here Sunday, glu-
ing notice that he will live up to the
agreement and will insist upon a
strict compliance with its terms on
the Ferguson side.
Quote8 Holcomb Letter.
"The first evidence brought to my
attention that Jim Ferguson intends
to attempt an evasion was a letter
writen by Guy Holcomb. the Ferguson
compaign manager, to J. W. Sampson
of Houston, who had written both to
Holcomb and to my headquarters for
an unequivocal answer to the ques-
tion of whether we intended to abide
by the terms of the challenge and its
acceptance. At my direction, Mr.
Steve Pinckney of my headquarters
wrote to Mr. Sampson that my word in
politics as in other matters is my

pediency. No one will deny that we
succeeded in electing far too few of
this class. We say we want men in
office who are honest; men who will
see that our laws are enforced with-
out fear or favor. Then why not
support Dan Moody? Has he not
shown himself to be such a man ? Be-
cause we believe him to be competent;
because we believe him to be not only
honest himself but to hape by nei-
ther voice nor vote countenanced dis-
honesty in others; because he is a
clean moral young man, and because
he has shown a disposition to place
the public welfare ahead of his own,
we intend to support Moody to the
welfare ahead of his own, we in-
tend to support Dan Moody to the
limit, unless or until we have positive
information that we have guaged his
character incorrectly, and we have no
fear of that.—Florence Vidette.
DID YOU EVER STOP TO THINK
As proof that theories do not al-
ways work, the death of Dr. Emile
Coue was announced on July 2nd. Dr.
Coue was the famous auto-suggestion
rtheorist who made the words "day by
day in every way, I am getting bet-
ter and better" famous throughout
the world, but he finally succumbed
to the inevitable—death.

I want to advise my many friends in and around Granger to avail themselves of the rare
opportunity of hearing this wonderfui preacher.
McMillan's life is above reproach, everywhere; as a christian, he is true, tried,
faithful and devoted. As a preacher, plain, humble, patient, kind, forceful, eloquent
and scholarly, with a personality that tends to draw all men unto his message.
The church at Granger is fortunate in s^curins this abl* man for this meet-
