The Scottish Rite Masons of San An-

The morning service at the First Baptist
Church Is being given to doctrinal sub-
jects. Dr. Iiiley spoke yesterday morning
on the "Return of the Lord." His tl\eme
at 10 o'clock today will be the "Resurrec-
tion of the Believer's Body."
Tonight the program known ns "Family
Night" in on for the special meeting. The
plan is for parents and children to attend
together. This has been arranged for
Friday night because there is no school
Saturday and it is known that the chil-
dren can come. Dr. Riley's theme this
evening will be "The "Whole Family for
A large audience heard him last evening
on "Jonah and His Gourd." Dr. Riley
made .Jonah a patriot of his order, a
man whose disappointment over God's
failure to destroy Nineveh was solely due
to his fear that the Ninevites would over-
run Israel, conquering and destroying
Israel's people. Jonah's disposition to die
he explained as the weak moment that
came in the life of an otherwise great
man. He said the greater the man tlie
more sure the weak moment in his life.
The same elements that can lift one to
the heights can know reaction and drag
him to the depths. For Illustration he
took Elijah of the Old Testament aud
Peter of the New Testament, and Abraham
Lincoln of secular history—all great men,
yet each of them revealing at some time
a weak moment. Dr. Riley believes that
many a suicide could be averted if those
tempted could bp tided over the brief
time of temptat.ioA, and especially if God
were to be given a chance to reveal him-
self to them, as he did to Jonah, and
show them a better way. He narrated
two remarkable instances of people who
had been saved from suicide by the
preaching of this sermon on Jonah's dis-
position to die.
The meeting this morning will be held
in the chapel of the church, but on Satur-
day afternoon it Is expected that the crowd
of women who will want tn hear Dr. Ri-
ley's address on "The Wife and Mother—
A Model in Both," will fill every seat in
An electric float, filled with singers and
speakers will appear on the streets again
tonight at 7 o'clock. Great audiences are

Much Too Much For
This Army of Generals
The Mexican army almost captured
Alamo Plaza yesterday afternoon.
General Jesus Torreon y dt la Chi-
huahua, with eighteen assistant backstop
generals, twenty-two colonels, thirty-five
majors, thr<* privates and six admirals
fell over their swords as they uuloaded
from a rubberneck wagon in front of
the Menger Hotel. Huh? They ain't no
admirals in the army? Well, these were
attired as such.
The whole crew trooped across the
plaza to the studio of a motion picture
company to change their scenery and
swap thoir swords for picks and shomis.
Meanwhile, half of downtown San An-
tonio collectively Reached for its gun.
Uniformed bellhops from the M^ngpr
formed a hollow square in front of the
hotel to repel the invasion. They were
reinforced by the bartender with a bung
starter and a siphon botUe, but the
army was retreating when he arrived.
The detachment was only part of the

ALFBEDO RANG EL GIVEN FIVE
ING GOOD BEHAVIOR.
Alfredo Rangel, charged with murder,
was found guilty of manslaughter by a
jury in the Thirty-seventh District Court
shortly after 7 o'clock last night and sen-
tenced to five years in the penitentiary.
On application of attorneys for the de-
fense, he was given the benefit of the
suspended sentence law, and during good
behavior will not. have to go to prison.
This is the first time in San Antonio
since the passage of the suspended sen-
tence law that a man found guilty of
manslaughter has been released under the
provisions of that act.
Rangel was charged with killing his
stepfather, Manuel Esparza. He pleaded
that cruelty to his mother by Esparza
caused him to commit the act. The de-

"Making a Turn"
There are three primary reasons why men
and women buy land: 1. For a home.
2. For investment. 3. For speculation.
This talk deals with the third reason—buy-
ing land with the idea of selling it later at
a profit. 1 have no statistics at hand by
which to judge, but probably nine-tenths of
all the real estate operations in the country
are based on this reason.
Large numbers of men who have made
money have made it in real estate. Some of
them operate on a large scale. These, if they
clear a profit, are likely to make a large
one. Others buy in small lots and the profit
is comparatively small, although the per-
centage may be fully as large as that ac-
quired by the larger operator.
You and 1 know people who have got
their start by buying land and selling it at
a higher figure. Southwest Texas has many
such people, because opportunities are
greater in Southwest Texas than in most
parts of the country.
When a new railroad taps a country that
previously has not had railroad facilities, it
is the invariable result that land values ad-
vance. When a new town starts along the
railroad line and begins to thrive and grow,
prices of lots increase and those who have
been the first to acquire land there are often
able to make a very satisfactory profit.
S. A. Hopkins (Townslte Dept.),
220 East Houston St., San Antonio.
Please send me by return mail map and price list
of lots at Norwell, Texas.
STREET AND NO -
All this ought to apply to Morwell, be-
cause Norwell is well located on the exten-
sion of the Artesian Belt Railroad, 11 miles
from the present terminus. Norwell is in
the center of a country well adapted for
agriculture. It will be the shipping point,
this year, for the product of 1.200 acres
planted in cotton from one farm atone.
In buying "for a turn," speculators always
want to be assured that the price of lots is
reasonable at the beginning. As regards
Norwell, the prices are more than reason-
able—they are extremely low. There isn't
a lot selling at a higher price than $75, and
many lots are $50 and $25. Terms are
easy—20 per cent down and 20 per cent
a month, with 10 per cent off for cash.
With five months in which to pay for the
lots, it is entirely possible that speculators
may find an opportunity to take a profit
before all the payments are made.
In any event, those who buy with the in-
tention of selling at a later time will not
find me offering lots in competition with
them at present prices, because I shall ad-
vance the price of every lot at Norwell on
May 4th. Not a lot will be offered for less
than $10 more than its present price, and the
increase on many lots will be much greater
All the lots at Norwell are good, but some
are naturally better than others. That is
why it is to your advantage to act promptly,
if you would be in a position to take ad-
vantage of such opportunities for profit as

Sunday Meeting of the Colorado Baptist
Association, which has been In session here,
Your Grandmother's Remedy
for Purifying the Blood
And Renovating the System in the Springtime
Ask for Sulpherb Tablets
What was grandmother's unexcelled remedy? Haven't you heard of it?
Yes, you have! It was sulphur, cream of tartar and molasses. The main
trouble with it was it was its nauseous taste.
A modern method puts the cream of tartar and sulphur into a sugar-
coated tablets and mixes them with herbs, roots, etc., making a wonderful
tonic blood purifier and system cleanser.
Just try Sulpherb Tablets (not sulphur tablets), but Sulpherb—re-
member the name—and get the tablets in sealed tubes at 50c per tube.
Grown-up people and children who don't feel well, who are consti-
pated or sluggish, or who have pimples, boils, carbuncles, ulcers and the
like, can soon rid the system of these impurities by taking this good old-
fashioned remedy in modern form. Their action satisfies or money is re-
funded by the Prescription Products Company, Dayton, Ohio. A free trial
sent to any address. Buy of any well-stocked druggist.

was one of the best Fifth Sunday sessions
the association has ever held. There were
fifteen or sixteen Baptist ministers and
about twenty other visitors present. The
convention aroused much enthusiasm along
religious and educational lines and was
attended by the people of Columbus re-
gardless of denominational differences. The
principal speakers were M. M. Wolf, presi
dent of Palaolos Baptist Academy; J. N.
Marshall, of the Baptist Education Board;
David M. Gardner, field evangelist, of th«
Southwestern Baptist Theological Semi-
nary, Reverends J. A. Stephens. J. T. Dale,

iner and Moran and Deacon R. A. Arm-

several years. The association has not yefc
decided where it will hold the next Fifth
Sunday meeting. It is one of the largest
associations in the State.
must have something besides bread-and-
butter-and-jam and books and sermons to
grow on, to study on, to play on. For the
growing youngsters nothing equals
the food that builds muscle and bone and brain — a natural,
elemental food — containing no yeast, no baking powder or
chemicals of any kind—just the pure whole wheat grain, steam-
cooked, shredded and baked. Better than porridges for children
because the crispness of the shreds compels mastication which
not only develops sound teeth, but is the first process in digestion.
Always heat the Biscuit in oven to restore crispness. Two Shredded
Wheat Biscuits with hot milk or cream will supply all the energy
needed for a half day's work. Delkkmsly nourishing when eaten in
combination with baked apples, stewed prunes, sliced bananas or
canned or preserved fruits. Try toasted Tracuit, the Shredded Wheat
wafer, for luncheon with butter, cheese or marmalade.
Made only by The Shredded Wheat Company, Niagara Falls, N. Y.
