FARM NOTES '
I By F. O. MONTAGUE
There will be a break in our farm
notes for a week or two as we have
to attend the Farmer's Short Course
all of next week. This is an annual
affair held on the A & M College Cam-
pus and is widely attended, people
visiting there from all sections of the
State. And it is a very worthwhile
institution: giving farmers and theirs
wives and boys and girls an opportun-
ity to study any phase of Agriculture
that appeals to them.
BAY CITY MAN
IS SHOT OVER
THE BOAT BUILDER
YOUNG STANSILL SHOT BY JOHN
LANE FOLLOWING FIGHT
SATURDAY P. M.
That old saw "One extreme follows
another in Texas" seems to still be
very popular, as we are hearing it on
every side now since it has been rain-
ing for several days. And this County
has memories of long sieges of rain
that has ruined wonderful cotton pros-
pects in the years that are gone.
These rains that are with us now
are hurting a dandy prospective cotton
crop in that the weevil and leaf worm
can show up heavier than possible in
hot, dry weather, but the late corn,
pastures and late truck crops will be
Crop prospects are very promising
over this entire county at this time
and unless something very untoward
hits us we will have a bountiful har-
vest within a few weeks now.
T. "Fieldlark" Stansill was shot in
the head just below the brain on the
right side, Saturday afternoon about
4:30 o'clock by his employer, John
Lane, over a small sum in his wages.
Stansill and Lane bad had a fist fight
just before the shooting, which oc-
curred at the corner at Ditch's dry
goods store. Stansill was rushed to the
Loos hospital, where he is reported
to be resting easy today.
Mr. V. L. LeTulle went Mr. Lane's
bond. According to Justice of the Peace
Cates, the examining trial will be held
this week, no definite date yet being
set.—Bay City Tribune.
POOR BOYS' WELL
HOLDS UP GOOD
IS THOUGHT CAPABLE OF PRO-
DUCING 5000 BARRELS
ProJ'. Dresser, our new band di-
rector, has been in seventeen States
this Summer and states very frankly
that in all that territory is there any-
thing that can compare with prospects
in this county. Prof. Dresser is a musi-
can of wide reputation and has con-
ducted leading orchestras throughout
the North and East but due to sinus
ti'ouble he had to get into a climate
such as we have here. Just another il-
lustration that we have almost an
ideal situation in this section.
"The road forks at Victory Junction,
out there in Kansas. You look Norward
to the blooming valley of the Kaw, and
Southward over the nodding plains of
the Wadarusa, a waving sea of wheat.
And there rises in bronze Viguesney's
stirring figures of the "Spirit of the
American Doughboy." He is animated,
earnest, on fire to give all that is in
him. With the spirit of that statue
rising out of the old Oregon Trail and
peopling the plains it is rather diffi-
cult to get men to listen to govern-
mental injunctions to restrict produc-
tion, to do half a job and quit, to adopt
voluntarily the spirit of the Dole. True,
the farmer is willing to listen to a
reasonable program of land utilization
or crop substitution, but he will be
unworthy of his calling when he does
not produce all he can, provided he has
a balanced, self sustaining cropping
and livestock system on his farm.
Sabotage against nature has no appeal
in the open country. It is up to the
Federal Farm Board to advance a way
of merchandising, to demonstrate in
price the benefit of organization and
salesmanship, and not to hide behind
the flimsy excuse of over production.
The farmer has been having his
block thinned out quite a little. It
seems necessary about every fifteen
or twenty years. In 1873, 1892 and
1907—real panics. In between were
years of profit. But after such a time
people became careless. Things begin
to happen, prices fall, and a back-to-
earth movement takes place. Periods
of prosperity follow every depression.
And so, after the experiences of 1930,
everyone has become cautious, over-
cautious in fact.
After a time money lying idle be-
comes restless and begins looking
around for profitable investment.
Everything being deflated, as is now
the case, soon brings back confidence
and we realize that it is time again to
get under way.
With the development of the season,
the growing of livestock and the na-
tural processes of a promising crop
•year, many people are again casting
about for business. A man a few days
ago made the statement that he
thought, it. was time to get going now
that the trough of the depression was
either here or already past.
People must eat, wear clothes and
be sheltered. People also think that
they must have conveniences and much
equipment, to say nothing of entertain-
ment. We talk of the good old days
and that we should go back to them
but we never do. Those times were
not so good when we look back and
see all the difficulties of our fathers.
Any of us can quickly go back to the
"good old days," but are we? Tear up
our concrete roads, run the car into
the ditch and travel again in the ox
cart; tear the telephone off the wall
and throw it over the back fence;

pitch the radio after it; put mother to

do that? To ask the question is to
We go forward. We want more and
more. We go out and earn still more,
the progress merely interrupted oe-
cassionally by dull times. That is as
it should be, because later we can
really appreciate prosperous times
Right now the foundation for an-
other period of prosperity is being laid.
One of these days we will wonder why
we allowed prosperity to be interrupt-
ed for so long a time. Some thinking
is really done mostly in times of ad-
versity; the fruits are reaped during
the prosperous years that follow.
Right now farmers are studying
their lessons as never before. They
lealize that profits must be earned;
that net income cannot be had without
earnest effort, both mental and phy>
sical. Debts are paid in hard times,
only to be contracted again in good
The one crop farmer is usually the
fellow who is hardest hit when "times
are hard." Diversified farming diver-
sifies the risk, and reduces the loss.
It may not be generally known but the
fact remains that we have in the com-
munity a craftsman skillful as a boat
builder. He is more than a mere crafts-
man. He is a Master of his calling.
Quiet, unassuming, yet always genial
and hospitable to neighbor and strang-
er alike, he needs no further introduc-
tion than a glance at his work, and,
in the opinion of the writer, there is
nothing in the material world that will
show up the character and skill of the
workman any quicker than the build-
ing of a boat—a real boat. Anyone
may build something that will float
for awhile.—A log or a crude raft will
float. But to build a real boat requires
not only manual skill but also an ap-
preciation of the beautiful and useful.
There must be symmetry, proportion,
strength, uniformity of outline, bal-
ance and all those qualities which will
appeal to the aesthetic faculty as well
at to the mere usefulness of the object.
In other words, there must be beauty
in a real boat as well as bouyancy. A
real boat shows up the Mastery of the
Less than two months ago it was
stated in these columns that the boat
building industry in Palacios had hard-
ly been started and that hundreds of
pleasure boats and fishing craft will
be in demand in the years just before
us: well, this writing will inform you
that the start has been made in quite
an unexpected place arid the sixth
boat will leave the builder's hands
within a few days to float beautifully
upon the Tres Palacios—and imme-
diately other boats will follow. The
motor for one of these boats is now
here and the building will commence
as soon as materials can be obtained
to begin the work. And these boats
are not mere "skiffs" but real pretty
works of art to be used for pleasure
and profit for generations to come!
And the queer part of it all is that
the Master who builds these boats
does not live in town at all, has no
shop—not even a shed—and, until very
recently, had very little machinery
with which to work. His shop was the
canopy of heaven over a live oak grove
near his residence on the farm and
he is none other than our friend and
neighbor John Pierce! Three beauti-
ful boats are now nearing completion
and another will be begun for Captain
Herman Hood within a few days from
The material used in these boats
consists of the very best that can be
found, and, with ordinary care, will
last fifty years of continuous service.
There is no better material for ribs
that can be used in boats of this type
than our own native mulberry, steam-
ed and bent to form, and these are
made right on the place out of logs
cut within a few miles of Palacios.
These ribs will give unbelievable
strength to the hull of clean sycamore
when rivetted with thousands of cop-
per rivets and it is remarkable to note
the beauty of line and accuracy of
form and balance in these boats.
Mr. Pierce is a direct decendant of
the pioneers of Texas, has the true
southern humor in his bearing, likes
his work and enjoys life. It is a pleas-
ure to meet him, take in the beauty of
his home and surroundings and, best
of all, see the creative expression of
the man himself in his boats.
Yes, the boatbuilding industry has
commenced for Palacios and, when the
highways and the intracoastal canal
have been completed, there is no tell-
ing what other industries will come to
our City-by-the-Sea—our Palacios

Gives Good Advice
To Cotton Farmers
J. D. Greenwood was in the Beacon
office this morning and said that if
he were running a newspaper, he
would advise the farmers to top their
cotton at once, which would keep it
from growing rank and cause it to
fruit more prolilically. He says if
this advice is followed, it will result
in hundreds of dollars additional in-
come to our farmers. As Mr. Green-
wood says he knows cotton better
than bakers know bread, we pass his
advice on to our farmer readers.

A family reunion was held at the
home of Mr. and Mrs. W. C. Williams
Sunday, celebrating their 55th wedding
anniversary. A sumptuous dinner was
served and the day a most happy one
for all. Besides Mr. and Mrs. Will-

from a trip to Oklahoma City, and who
is a long-time friend of the family,
was also a guest.

of this popular playhouse, and with

The Edna field, Jackson county, add-

producers during the past week, when
Chicago Gulf company completed its
Rogers 1 for 25 million cubic feet of
gas daily at 3952 feet.
The well was brought in after a
gas show had been picked up at 3950
feet and 6 5-8-inch casing was set. The
drill stem test showed 1100 pounds
pressure per square inch and since
completion the pressure has increased
to 1530 pounds per square inch. Three
feet of gas sand encountered at 3848-

Mrs. C. L. Pierce happened to quite
a painful accident Wednesday night
while assisting Mrs. Sandusky serve
the banquet for the Central Power and
Light Company employees at the B.

baen served and the helpers were get
ting something for themselves, Mrs.
Pierce in some way made a mis-step
at the top of the stairs between the
dining room and kitchen leading to the
basement, and fell to the bottom step,
receiving an ugly gash on her head a
badly bruised shoulder and other in-
juries which are not considered ser-
ious but cause a lot of suffering. This
is the second accident in almost the
same manner at these steps within the
past few months and it seems to us
that such a dangerous place should be
remedied or remcved, before someone
is fatally injured.

A jolly crowd of Central Power and

was served to the sixty guests by Mrs.

Died at Palacios, Texas, Saturday
July 18th, 6:00 P. M. at the age of 79
years, 2 months and 3 days.
Married to John Henry at the age
of 20 years, at Sebringville, Ontario,
Canada, to which union three children
were born; Eva, John Jacob and Ora.
John Jacob died at the age of about
15 years, on March 12, 1888. Surviv-
ing her are Eva, now Mrs. A. B.
Cairnes, Ora, a single daughter, Dr.
A. B. Cairnes, her son-in-law, John

Mother Henry, as she was known to
her friends and loved ones, was the
type of mother and citizen who stood
for every thing good in the community
in which she lived. Her early life was
spent as a pioneer, her parents coming
fom Alsace Lorraine, Germany, back
in 1830 or earlier, coming from a State
where men and women had learned
earlier in life that the world had need
for their lives as builders, to a country
where they might develop the best that
was there. She, with her husband and
family moved to Texas, Liberty Coun-
ty, in the early part of 1900. Mr. Hen-
ry being a contractor and builder, as
well as a farmer, found much to keep
him and his family in direct contact
with civic building upon coming to
Texas. In 1914 they moved to Palacios
with Dr. and Mrs. A. B. Cairnes, with
whom Mother Henry resided for 33
years or more. Mr. Henry died at
Palacios in 1915.
Mother Henry joined the Baptist
Church when her daughter Eva was
about 11 years of age. She was «
staunch supporter and worker in the
church at all times after uniting, a
true and consistent Christian. After
she united, all membei'S of the family
united with the church. Her leadership
being her life—wherever she went and
in whatever she worked, that spirit of
lending a hand to help carry over the
burdens of others caused her loved
ones and friends to want to be near
Untiring in her every effort for the
comfort of her own and others truly
it can be said: "She lookest well to the
way of her household, and eatest not
the bread of idleness. Her children
arises up, and call her blessed; her
husband also, and he praiseth her."
And thus passes from among us
one of love, of kindness and charity,
and in passing, leaves the light for
each of us to carry on.

BIG MEETING HELD AT COUNTY
COURT HOUSE TUES. NITE
REGARDING HIWAY 60
There was a meeting in the court-
ished the section of paving of Highway
60 from Wharton county line through
Bay City to Matagorda. A large dele-
gation from Matagorda was here to
find out if their part of the county is
to get a road. They, the Matagorda
delegation, stated that their section
of the county was paying and had paid
for considerably more than half of
the roads already constructed and that
they had not received any yet. They
were patient, have been extremely
patient throughout the entire cam-
paign and it was only under the im-
pression that Highway 60 is doubtful
that forced their coming up here last
night. Bay City, Palacios and the rest
of the county is just as anxious to
materialization of the proposed plans
as the people of Matagorda and there
is no doubt that a road will be built.
State aid is being sought and accord-
ing to Mr. Warden of Houston who
had recently talked to Mr. D. K.
Martin one of the highway commis-
sioners, the contracts will be let in the
very near future. The meeting was
well attended by citizens from Pala-
cios, Matagorda and Bay City. Dur-
ing the meeting one man from Pala-
cios made a statement that would have
been branded heresy in the minds of
the bondsmen here some four years
ago when the bond issue was put be-
fore the people of the county. Mr. J.
L. Koerber of Palacios stated that
when he wanted advice on matters
he went to men who had made a suc-
cess in life, a very substantial success.
He sought advice in Houston from two
very wealthy men not very long ago.
The talk came around to roads. The
matter was decided between the men
that roads were beneficial to I he larg-
er towns and cities but that they were
wrecking the rural communities. Mr.
Koerber went on to state, however,
that Matagorda county with her sea-
shore should be an attractive place to
the fisherman, sportsman and that
we will, if we capitalize on the poten-
tial possibilities here, reap benefits.—
