Whin the farmer gets his share of

According to the figures of the
thirteenth census, recently an-
nounced, Houston, Texas, has a pop-
ulation of 78,800, being an increase
of 34,167 over that of 1900.
If the South for ten years would
invest its surplus in better machine-
ry, farming would be far more profi-
table ten years hence tban it is to-
day, and it would be far more at-
tractive. . « - —
The 1910 census gives the total
population of Oklahoma as 1.651,"
951. In 1900 the population of the
territory now included in the States
was 790,301. This shows an increase
of more tbaa 100 per cent.

in excess of 30,000 spend four hun-

It is the opinion of the Palestine
Herald that if half the truth is being
told regarding the treatment of the
Indians by the land-grabbers and
the shrewd, unscrupulous lawyers
and politicians of Oklahoma, the
penitentiary of that new state is not
half big enough to hold those who
should be in it.

This bit of heroism was au actual
Molly Tryne was born to the click-
ing of telegraph keys. Her father was
an agent at a station on the O. B. and
G. railroad, and from the time Molly
was five years old nothing delighted
her so much as to sit in his lap and
with her little hand under his on the
key send messages. Then when she
knew they were real messages that
were being sent she would be delight-
"Now, dear." he would say after
sending an order fo# a train to come
on, "you've ordered up '17.' an<l she'll
be here in ten minutes, or when the
hand of the clock stands there."
Sure enough, when the hand pointed
to the designated figure the train
would steam up to the station.
As Molly grew older her father
taught her the Morse alphabet, and
when one day she sent a message all
by herself her pleasure knew no
to let Mr. D. C. Williams,' bounds. She continued to practice and
same, an learn, and by the time she was four-
teen she was of great assistance to

Molly was by this time so well versed
in telegraphy that the managers of the

owed by the Mill, as well as the
taxes, and the money to pay the
premium on insurance must be bor-
rowed. As the plant now stands no
one will loan any money on it, and
those holding the debts against the
Mill will not be willing to wait any
longer for their money, the interest
not being paid. I uless something
is done at once the Mill will have to
be sold to pay off its debts, and if
sold, the stockholders will lose all
