President Adolph Roldt's report was in
substance as follows:
During the year we held four success-
ful din ( tors' meetings. At these meet-
ings we inaugurated the policy of de-
voting the day in securing new members,
and we are pleased to report that at our
first meeting in Waco we secured nine-
teen new members. The second meet-
ing. at Galveston, gave us fifteen new
members; the third meeting, at San An-

held here last evening, owing to the

Our first stop was at Dallas, where we
secured twenty-six new names; at Fort
Worth, we gathered together thirty-four
new members; at Houston, thirty-seven;
at Galveston, eleven; at Sap Antonio,
twenty; at Austin, the magic number
of fifty, making a grand total of 178
new and desirable members.
Messrs. Michaux and Holland reor-
ganized the post at El Paso, having se-
cured fifty-four new members, at which,
along with which ten old members which
makes a total of sixty-four members

land also reorganized the post at Iwiredo,
securing twenty-two new members,
which, in connection with the seventeen
old members, makes a total of thirty-
nine members for Post T.
I am pleased to report that our great
increase in membership, since the con-
test has been in force, places us far

new constitution of the Texas division

years wo were represented at our Na-

ber of our legal representatives, owing
to the fact that a trip to a National con-
vention involves a personal cost of about
$L'o0 to each of our delegates, a pecuniary
sacrifice that many can ill afford.
To overcome this condition and to in-
sure for us a full representation at the

pers have not been asked for nor given,
but every piece of news has been received
with consideration and courtesy. Hun-
dreds of columns of news of the Travel-
ers' Protective Association have been
published by the Texas press, and many
of the 'Itavelers' rrotective Association
measures have been advocated editor-
ially. Our members in return have been
advertisers, buyers and subscribers, and
in many other ways have manifested
their full appreciation. The thanks of tho

division of the Travelers' Protective As-
sociation are now appearing each week

further appreciation by our members in
a practical way, by having a copy in

compliment to the Texas division, and
the prediction la made that the mem-
bers will not overlook the courtesy.
Another exclusive Travelers' Protective
Association page is being published every
Saturday by the El Paso Evening News.
This page is presided over at present by
J. B. Butler, well known as a newspaper
writer iu Texas. The management of the.

ity of that Western enterprise by pub-
lishing each week halftone pictures of
members and officers of the El Paso

The Travelers' Protective Association
Magazine is now costing the National
Association approximately $»',nno a year,
and this magazine only reaches the mem-
bers nmnthly. Now, as the press chair-
man of the Texas division. I recommend
to your honorable body that a resolution
be passed asking the National conven-
tion, wlTen it assembles in Buffalo, to
cause the publication of the Travelers'
Protective Association Magazine to eea: >
and that a proportionate sum of money
be allotted to the various States to be
used exclusively by the State press com-
mittees. This would allow the Texas di-
vision to have an official publica\nn.
which could be placed in the hands of
each Texas member once every week.
It would give National. State and local
Travelers' Protective Association new-,
and would be beneficial to the National
Association and State-, divisions from
many standpoints. To this feature your
earnest consideration is asked.
To the president" and members of tho
press committee a full sense of gratitude
is expressed for assistance rendered, as
well as to committees who have la-
bored with us.

The matter of nominal ions for National
convention del gat -s was then taken up,
the posts being railed In turn and each
offering whatever candidates it had to go
to the great meeting of the Travelers'
Protective Association in Buffalo next
month. Forty-two v. re nominated, and
at an adjourned meeting of the associa-
tion held at 7:30 o'clock last night these
were voted on. The ballots were placed
in the hands of*a special committee ap-
pointed for the purpose which is to report
the result of the election at tomorrow
morning's session. Nineteen Is the num-
ber of delegates the Texas division is

The Afternoon Session ^
Was Also of Interest.
Following the beginning of the after-
noon session reports of the committees
were heard and various matters relating
to the welfare of the organization were
discussed. Two hundred dollars was
voted to the relief of traveling men in
San Francisco, and Hon. O. B. Colquitt
was introduced and addressed tho body
in a few words.
The committees from whom reports
Were heard were the hotel committee,
the relief committee, legislative commit-
tee, livery and transfer committee, and
the press committee. These reports were
acted on, and then the reports from the
several posts were heard, all Indicating
an era of growth and prosperity in the
order all over Texas.
For Texas If Possible.
Han Antonio is making a strong pull
for the National convention of 1907. and
the other posts in the State are going to
do their best to bring the big meeting to
the Alamo City. Resolutions endorsing
San Antonio's action inviting the National
convention to meet there, next year were
passed in the State convention today,
and all delegates who go from this
division will go sworn to do all they can
to bring the next National gathering to
A number of communications on vari-
ous matters pertaining to the working
of the order were read before the body
and referred to the proper committees. *
The convention adjourned for an hour,
and In the Interim the Benevolent
Lengue, an auxiliary of the association,
held Its meeting. President Alf Dieck-
mann in the chair and Fritz Mitchell at
the secretary's desk. .The meeting Kfcard
the annual report of the secretary and
treasurer and then adjourned to tomor-
When the association reconvened, the
matter of electing the delegates to the
National convention was taken up. The
tickets were found to have a number of
omissions and errors, however, and the
election was postponed to a. night session,
held this evening* at 7:30 o'clock, when
the election took place, the ballots being
turned over to a committee to count and
report at the morning session tomorrow.
1'ntil the committee makes its report no
one will know which nineteen men of
the forty-two nominated will be the rep-
resentatives of the Texas division.
The session closed with the selection
of El Paso as the next meeting place.
The El Paso Indians are splendid boost-
ers for their town, and in the face of
their enthusiasm the other two cities
which were known to have InVntlons on
the next convention were constrained to
withdraw their claims. No other nomi-
nation was made, and, by a rising and
unanimous vote, accompanied by lusty
cheering, the Texas division accepted the
hearty invitation of the El Paso post and
adopted that city as the meeting point

MAI A DIAAH INSIDIOUS FOE
mALAKIA TO HEALTH,
Malaria 13 an atmospheric poison which we unconsciously breathe into
our lungs through the impure air arising from low, marshy places, stagnant
ponds, damp cellars, sewer pipes, improperly ventilated houses, decaying
vegetable matter, etc. Day after day these germs and poisons are taken into
tholungs, and as the blood passes through them it becomes infected with the
poison and in its circulation distributes the microbes of disease to all parts
of the body. Malaria is a very insidious disease; it gives no warning of its
coming until the circulation is filled with the poison and this foe to health
has the system at its mercy. The blood becomes polluted, thin and weak and
its slow, irregular circulation fails to properly nourish and strengthen the
body. Then the entire system is attacked, and if the germs and poisons of
Malaria are allowed to remain the strongest constitution will break down.
No one can feel well when the system is in a malarial condition; the vitality
is weak, the appetite poor, digestion deranged, the complexion grows
sallow and the entire body feels the effects of the poison. Malaria must be
removed from the sj'stem through the circulation and the only mcdicine that
can accomplish this is S. S. S. It not only cleanses the blood of all unheal thy,
morbid matter, but destroys the germs, cures Malaria and restores this vital
fluid to a strong, healthy condition. S. S. S.
is made of roots, herbs and barks combining
purifying and tonic properties which keep the
_ — blood free of all poisons and the system in
— ® • perfect condition. While destroying the
PURELY VEGETABLE. germs of Malaria and building np the weak,
polluted blood S. S. S. gives tone and vigor
to the entire system. Book on the blood and any medical advice without
charge. THE SW/fT SPECIFIC CO., A TLANTA. QAm -
