South Texas G. of G-
Convention Fine Affair
The South Texas Chamber of
Commerce Convention which
met ia Eagle Lake Wednesday
was one of the finest coventions
it has ever been ear pleasure to
attend. Those Eagle Lake folks
were just the finest hosts ever.
Tip program arranged was won-
ffamfl, we doubt if Governor
Rous Sterling ever laughed so
much ia many a day as he did
at this e%5nt. It was filled with
fan and laughter from the start
to the finish.
Theta'ksOn"My Home Town"
which is a feature event of the
annual meeting is most interest-
ing. We sincerely hope some
boy or girl of Schulenburg next
year enters this discussion and
wins the honors. This year a girl
from EtCampo won first prize,
whieh is to Hhold the big Silver
Loving Cup in her town for a
year and $15 00 for her to spend.
The second prize is $10.00, and
third prize $5 00, Second prize
was won by a Bay City girl and
third prize by a Columbus boy.
Each strives to show that his
town is far better than any other
town in South Texas and why.
Gov. Ross Sterling in Ijis
speech talked on taxes. He stat-
ed he received information frJm
Washington that National imd
State Taxes had doubled sijce
1914, yet the price received for
commodities was only half. He
said taxes were 'too high. He
again stressed that State and Fe-
deral Highways be gbuilt and
maintained by the users of the
road ind should not be a tax
against farms, homes fand busi-
ness: He promised, that when he
was Governor a year that im*
provements would be made in
thfe penitentiary system ef Tex-
It was a most interesting in-
oduction with which the Gov-
ernor was called^upon to speak.
-Grady Kilsoving, who introduced
him, stated that once at a show a
mao came on the stage with a
big bull (or base fiddle) that the
nly music previously heard
rom one, in his knowledge, was
just a deep strumming to keep
time, but this actor actually
played sweet music on this bull
fiddle, using the orchestra as a
back ground. This bull fiddle re-
minded him of our Governor
elect. That to start with the buil
fiddle wasn't much, but in the
end it outclassed all the fine in-
struments.So Governor Sterling
started life with very little but
had come forward to be in a
class alone. From this time on
every speaker Galled the Gover
nor the Ball Fiddier, and each
time it brought out a world ot
laughter. A preacher had just
lead some singing and intended
to use the same term about the
Governor but in error called him
the big bull. The Governor just
roared and everyone eUe let out
whoops of laughter. Senator^Rus-
sek was kidded a bit about hav-
ing the largest rose pinned on
his coat,all distinguished guests
were thus decorated, but Gus
got the biggest rose. The Gov-
ernor stated that the boys in the
Senate had to work hard this
coming term but stated, turning
to Senator Russek: "I will be
right there to help you".
Judge Huggins, Editor of the
Houston Chronicle, made a fine
speech, kidding Governor Ster-
ling and everyone. He stated
neither he nor Gov. Sterling
built the fine highways of today,
but it was the presidents of the
Rotary Clubs, the hard working
and fighting men of the C. of C.
organisations, the preachers,edi
tors, te&chers and the people
who loved their home tewne and
counties, who would dig down
and pay the taxes because they
bad a great love for their home
town and connty. These are the
folks who build the roads. Be
said sectional organizations are
fine, that the West Texas C. of O
beoause of its strength and en-
thusiasm came to Austin secured
•1,200,000 for Lubbock College
South Texas C. of C. beoause of
its lack of numbers to appear at
Austin and lack of pep |only got
$250,000 for its College.
Sidney Kring of Corpus Chris-
ti made a wonderful talk as did
many others. A fine turkey din-
ner with all the trimmings was
served and it was all anyone could
desire. Everyone voted it the
finest convention yet held by
S.T. C, of C.
Schulenburg was represented
by Senator Russek, W. L.Baura-
garten, H. H. Hollien and E. A.
The Seasons Greetings:
We more than greet you. We warn you. Do not sell your turkeys,
which are the fruits of your hard work, patience and care, to: people who
are so commercialized, that they fail to appreciate, much less sympathize
with the plight of the average farmer and poultry raiser. You may be ap-
proached by people whose sole purpose is to purchase yoi^r tnrkeys as
cheaply as possible, in order that they cay in turn reap the profits that
you are entitled to. Others will make fabulous offers, or handle your tur-
keys for nothing, but let us warn you that you pay for the handling of your
turkeys whether you know it or not.
Something For Nothing Ends up
in Being Nothing For Something
Don't forget that conscientious grading and efficient handling of your
turkeys means everything to you. We grade yonr turkeys so you will be
benefited by asking you to keep the small, undergrade, immature tur-
keys at home until they grow to the proper size and you get more money
We will always treat you fair and square and we always have the
farmers interest at heart* We are always interested in a fair price to the
farmer, in order to encourage the raising of turkeys and shipping them to
the great Eastern markets.
Therefore, your co-operation with us is earnestly asked. If we work
together we can build up the turkey industry to ten times its present size.
Turkeys are about the only thing that advanced iu price and is bringing in
the thousands of dollars in CASH all over thic country.
Get in the turkey business on a larger scale.
Get your breeding stock now. Trade your gobblers for new ones.
Be sure to come see us or phone us for a price if you have any
turkeys to sell.
We also buy eegs, hens, fryers, ducks, geese, pigeons and guineas.

The School Board, meetieg
Wednesday night, released Mr.
Cy. Luker, our Vocational Agri-
cultural Teacher, upon his re-
quest, so that he could accept a
position in Bryan. There he will
draw the highest salary paid in
bis line of work. Schulenburg
could net afford to meet the
price they offered so he will be
in Bryan next year.
Supt. [E. H. Patton informed
the Board that he would not ap-
ply for this school next term.We
understand he has a better pay*
ing position in view.
Space this morning forbids a
lengthy item, but we state that
Schulenburg is losing two valu-
able men. We hate to see them

One way to get more milk is to buy a lot
more cows. Another way is to get more milk
out of the cows you already are feeding.
Of course, if the feed they're getting now
won't increase the amount of milk, it might be
a good idea to try a feed that will. Blue Tag
Cream Maker (24% Protein) has done it for
just a whole lot of dairymen in the Southwest.
Some others prefer Blue Tag Dairy Ration
(18.4% Protein) and others MilkMaka (16%
Protein)—depending on conditions. Ask your
dealer. And ask him about these new Blue Tag
Egg Pells for your hens, too.
