but they may arouse public criticism and
dissatisfaction, which will be unjust.
Mercury is read as warning of much in-
flammatory writing and publishing, which
will foment internal troubles In many parts
of the United States.

There is a sign indicating agitation among

The stars seem- to forecast some sort of
shock to the public mind, which will disturb
the equilibrium of the nation.

We have gone into the war business. If you did not raise
your boy to be a soldier, now is a good time to begin.
Huerta was not recognized by the United States government
and now the German kaiser is placed in a similar position.
Not all the Benedict Arnolds of the present, war will join the
colony in Mexico; some of them will remain in this country and
take the chances.
Would it not be a nice thing to raise wild birds for shootijig
during the hunting season in Bell county? That system is em-
ployed successfully in some sections of the country.
When a man, liable for military service under the selective
conscription law, applies for exemption, he could be allowed to
select the man whom he would like to have go in his place.
Travis county has a pit silo, the first one in that county, now
filled with ninety-five tons of ensilage. The success of the
-pit silo should add to the interest producers may have in this
form of preserving stock feed.
Tl;e word "billion" has been used frequently of late, withou
having made a very strong impression upon the mind of the
average reader. If you were to count at the rate of one per

seventy years in counting a billion.

Tim Kenedy Advance, says that "A
trainload of boy scouts out of. Han
Antonio passed through Kenedy Tues-
day enroute to Bnihl's drove, near
ltoekport, for a week's outing." This
shows how much chance there. Is for
n boy scout to have a good time if
he makes good In his homo patrol.
The traveling passenger agent an-
nounced that an effort would be
made to establish a permanent camp-
The Lampasas Leader has a state-
ment that twenty-two persons went
to San Saba Wednesday night, where
they wore entertained by the San
Saba club. They went over that scenic
highway in autos, a trip which alone
is a good excuse for going to San
Saba. Tho hospitality of the San
Saba club is additional temptation to
anyone Inclined to look for pleasure,
and the welcome of those people give
assurance that tho Lampasas party
was royally entertained.
The rains that will make winter grain crops and pastures
good will bring great profit to those who are fixed for cashing
the opportunity, sending their hay to the market in cowhides
and egg shells. Naturally we are to believe that plentiful
rains will restore the greater prosperity.
Evidence is coming out that Germany proposed (o Great
Britain before the war to oppose the interests of the United
States in the settlement of the Mexican question. That, evi-
dently, was known to the American government and was one of
the reasons why we did not begin a war on Mexico.
Bell County Teachers' Institute opens in Belton Monday.
The teachers must go to school for one week during the year,
as teachers of Texas University are sometimes required to go
to school at other seats of learning. The public gets the bene-
fit in the increased value of the knowledge gained by the
teachers through associating and studying together.
The Better Babies Conference at Bell County Fair should
prove to be one of the best attractions of that magnificent
exhibition. Since other fairs are not to be held in many Texas
counties, there should be a larger attendance from those
sources. Altogether the coming fair bids promisingly for a
record making success. Temple and Bell county will benefit
by this success, and it behooves all of us to either push or pull.
Houston now has a regular woman detective, attached to the
police force. It will be her duty to attend to those many cases
that come to the attention of the police where a woman is
needed, such as handling the cases of wayward girls, investi-
gating domestic tangles and such work. This woman formerly
worked with the Waco detective department. The influence
of women in the affairs of city government is receiving
greater consideration than formerly, as men begin to realize
that women should really be employed to look after the inter-
ests of women prisoners.
"A total of 15G dealers have been
convicted for violating the Texas pure
food law, since 1910. This is an ex-
act average of three a week for the
entire state," declared the Ran An-
tonio Light. The public is to be con-
sidered by those who have food sup-
plies for sale. Not so many years ago
the custom was to "let the buyer be-
ware." The world is growing better.

The Waco Times-Herald declares
that Acting Governor Hobby has the
opportunity for doing the tax payers
of Texas a favor, "lie could make a
home run hit by cutting out several
million dollars of appropriations and
force a reduction of the tax rate.
The legislature might not respond to
the gubernatorial request, but the pro-
per executive appeal would doubtless
have some effect toward curbing ex-
travagance." Will somebody notify
Mr. Hobby before it is too late?

J RIPPLING RHYMES ?
+ By Walt Mason, A
Once again September's smiling In
a manner most beguiling, once again
she brings refreshment to the jaded
human Jays, who have suffered
through a season that was hot be-
yond all reason, that was but a com-
bination of a a lot or sizzling days.
As when one who's lost, forsaken, suf-
fering for bed and bacon, sees a
lighted cottage window that, invites
him to repose, so a delegate or mem-
ber looks upon the mild September,
which, with lier refreshing coolness,
Is a balm for all his woes. By the
heat of summer smitten, by the files
and skeeters bitten, man is at the
end of August, near the limit of his
nerve; then September comes serene-
ly, after months that ■ soaked him
meanly; he would load her down with
posies, he admires her every curve.
She ia like a drink of water to the
wanderers who totter on life's long
and dusty highway, with their feet
and bosoms son : she is like a slice
of slumber to the toiling guys whose
number is ns hard of comutation as
the f-ands upon the shore. She's n
solace and a guerdon to all skates
who bear their bur 'en, she's a tonic
for their souls; every feature of her
pleases, autumn tints and frosty bre-
07.es-- let us boost the calm September
while the knell of summer tolls.
I FARMERS'FORUM t
I'lant Grazing Crops.
Owing to the great scarcity of feed
every farmer should plan to plant at
least a few acres of wheat, oats, bar-
ley or rye this fall for grazing pur-
poses. of course it would be useless
to plant these grazing crops unless It
rains to put a season in the ground
but all arrangements should be made
to sow as soon as the rain comes, and
have as early pasture as possbile.
If you have never tried sowing grain
for grazing you will be surprised to
learn the large amount of feed your
horses, cattle, hogs, goats, sheep and
chickens will get from it. Your stock
