In commemoration of Temple's birthday and in recog-
nition of the glorious crop and business prospects which
are hers, the Telegram will issue, June 2i»th, a "Prosper-
June 29th, 1SS1, the public sale of town lots was held,
the Santa Fe Railroad company at that time inviting ths
people of the world to come and make a city at the place
•elected by her astute founders. That date was the formal
opening of the new town on the prairies, and it was the
official birthday of Temple.
For many years the hustling pioneers of the to^ii ob-
served the birthday anniversaries with barbecue, picnic or
ether attractive inducement to the people of the sur-
ronuding country to come and learn the way and g-t
acquainted with the hustlingest people In Texas. They
came In multiplied thousands, and they continued to come
when they needed supplies or had products to sell. Tem-
ple's birthday celebrations were powerful and wondrous
factors In establishing friendly relationships with the coun-
try for miles about.
It has been many years since an old-fashioned birth-
lay celebration was held. It is said in regret, and but for
the long withholding of the glorious rains which fell only
a few days ago, there would have been something doing
(his time, and could the coming of the rain have been fore-
seen, Temple would have arisen to the opportunity which
was then not realised. But the Telegram had planned Its
part, and It will carry out its program of celebrating.
The great crowds of guests of the city may not be here on
that day, and the fine speeches and felicitations may not
bs expressed, yet In the completeness of a circulation
which covers the great majority of the homes of this sec-
tion and which goes far beyond the confines of Bell oounty,
the Telegram will carry stories of Temple.
The edition will be mainly devoted to recounting of
progress made In recent years which period has marked
the birth of the "City," almost as definitely as June 28th,
ltd, marked the birth of the "Town." What Temple has
accomplished, what she Is doing and what 1b Inaugurated
for the Immediate future, will be set forth. An almost
Incredtble story Is promised, Incredible even to the citizen-
ship which has day by-day been in contact with the events
and growths treated. , The-Telegram has even in previous
issues dealt extensively with this development, and has
given Insight into accomplishments, yet It is found on
closer Investigation that there is much remaining to be
told, and that some of the Information heretofore given
is to be added to, in volume and In different angles of
Vision. The stories of development and of plans under
Way are going to awaken Templeltes to fresh confidence
and loyalty, and those who are not citizens, and who
rsad, will find additional reasons for becoming identified
With a city which is doing things as Temple is doing.
The immediate future of town and country Is to bo
treated in connection with the present and the past.
Never has such a prospect unfolded before the Prairie
Queen City, and it will do everybody good to have atten-.
Hen called to what is In store. %
Temple will not formally celebrate her birthday tliis
BETTER MIZZLE THEM
(By Dally Tele*ram Staff Poet)
They used to talk of what to do
With presidents when they got through
With sitting in tlie president s chair;
And always some one, here or there.
Would rise in meeting just to say
There ought to be a fitting way
To honor—as was his belief—
The one who'd been the nation's chief;
While others said: "Why, what's the use?
Just turn ex-presidents a-loose."
But if they keep on going mad.
Like some of them the country's had,
If you turn them loose, then hadn't you
Better muzzle them before you do?
year, but from right now, the Telegram is going to make
it a special order of business to see that the date Is never
again neglected. We all need to quit work once in a
while and take a spell of measuring up what we have ac-
complished. We need to become enthused and to enthuse
With this inadequate reference to the natal day of
Temple, and glimpse of what the Telegram has in hand
as a substitute for greater things not now feasible, It is
suggested that the citizenship boost the "what is," and
resolve to join in next year and do something that will
resound throughout the state and nation.
It may be noted that county politics is warming up
Cotton is reported to be opening up fast in the San
Benito country and the "first bale" is due to arrive most
any day now.
The point of interest now is to learn what branding

until tile iron is applied.

tion of the charges against Judge Archbald, of the com-

The republican delegates sojourning in Chicago ought
to put a high living protest plank in their platform.
They are surely being doctored, and they all know what
the high living complaint means by this time.
The nothing-to-lose element In both parties may turn
to a new party safely, but those who are dependent on
keeping their records straight, either through expectations
of profit or of sentimental pride, will resort to ridicule.
The complaint made by Bryan is that the national ex-
ecutive committee has selected as temporary chairman a
man who, while a good democrat and otherwise accept-
able, represents in the present fratricidal fight that ele-
ment which Is In minority in the convention. The tem-
porary chairmanship carries with it ipany opportunities
to favor a faction, and the Chicago convention has Just
demonstrated that in a close contest, the temporary chair-
manship may mean everything.
While all the big doings are goUtf on in Chicago, the
Mexicans are hammering away at their revolution. The
rebel army of the north Is being crowded slowly toward
the border and battles are imlmnent at both Chihuahua
and Juarez, while Zapata in the south has given Madero
one more chance to resign and save the capital from
capture. Some time back Orozco gave Zapata permission
to attack Mexico City, and the general is trying the paper
wad first. Jf he cannot induce the government to resign
in answer to polite notes of request, hs may get mad and
rob a ranch.

NEAL DENNIS DIES
IN SOUTH DAKOTA
Word Comes of the Passing Ah ay of
it Former Bell County Citizen.
Has Many Relatives Here.
To Baltimore goes the interest, and possibly a repeti-
tion of some of the striking incidents which have marked
the Chicago convention. The progressives in the demo-
cratic party are in opposition to the conservatives, just
as are the elements warring within the republican organi-
zation. The conditions were not unforeseen, and it is to
be expected that both parties will become disrupted. It
would probably b« better thus, than for the discordant
factions in both parties to continue to fight each other.
The animosities and the differences in opinions have be-
come so marked that there is but little hope that old polit-
ical friendships may be re-established, and that the old
parties can continue to dominate political thought and
allegiances. A family row is always more bitter than dis-
agreements among strangers, and the average republican
would rather see a democrat win than to have his fac-
tional enemy triumph, while the same may be said of tho
warring brethren in the dsmooratic party, who would hope
for republican success over the unwelcome triumph of
the democrat of the opposing faction.
Early in this month J. I. Dennis re-
ceived a message telling him of th-a
accidental death in South Dakota of
his cousin, Neal Dennis, who was
formerly a resident of Bell county,
and will be well remembered by the
older citizens here.
Mr. Dennis immediately wrote for
complete Information concerning tho
death of his cousin, and a few days
ago j aceived the following letter from
a lodge brother of the dead man:
Hermosa, S. D., June 15, li»12.
Mr. X. J. Dennis,
Replying to yours of June 12 rela-
tive to the death of Bro. Neal Den-
nis, I have tHfs to report.
It was judged that Brother Dennis
died of heart failure, either before
the team ran away yr In the excite-
ment incident to the runaway. The
body was viewed by the coroner, and
there were no marks upon it to indi-
cate a violent death, though found
lylnp in ths road and the team en-
tangled in a wire fence, a short dis-
tance away.' He was found a very
short time after the accident but
there were no eye witnesses.
Hs was buried by the Masons of
THE RAIN MAKERS
this place of which order he and I
both are members, and he was hon-
ored with a large and imposing fun-
eral, the expense of which was borne
by the Masonic Lodge, Battle River
He was universally liked and had
many friends in the community.
Trusting that I have given you the
desired information and awaiting
your further pleasure, I am,
S. M. BOOTH.
Neal Dennis left this county for
South Dakota t#enty-slx years ago.
He formerly owned a farm two miles
south of Temple, and has many rela-
tives in this part of the state. He
has a sister, Mrs. Hogwood, now re-
siding in Rogens.
