I notice in the Lancaster Her
gld of this week, tbe address
signed by about forty odd mem-
bers of the House and Senate,
opposing the adoption of the suf-
frage amendment, and that yoi
also bad an editorial advising
against voting for this amend
This address was submitted
to every member of both branch
es of the Legislature prior t*
the time it was given out, accom-
panied by a letter asking author
lty to sign their names thereto.
I am of course, personally ac
quainted with every member
whose name is signed to this
address, and know their politics
A decided majority of those
whose names appear thereof
are anti prohibitions of the Tabic*
tppe, and of the pros, I feel safe
in saying that the most of them
are tbe kind ot pros who do not
stand hitched. That is, I mean
they are the kind that you can
not depend on. From what I
know of their oolitics, and from
what I have heard them say, 1
am sure that a majority ot then
oppose the amendment, not be
cause they are afraid of it open
itfg up tbe way for fraud, bu»
because it will disfranchise
thousands of citizens of foreign
conn tries who are not—never
had any intention and never will
be naturalized cit'zens of th»
United States, but who always-
vote tbe anti ticket. am for
the amendment for the samt
reason that they are against it.
It is true, as pointed out in.tbr
address sent out, that a man
who lived m Lancaster, in Mes
quite or in Dallas, who had paid
his poll tax, but who had per-
haps not been in the county long
enough to vote, could, after bis
vote was refused at his home, go
to another county and vote, but 1
do not believe that much of this
would be done. As a rule, polit-
ical crooks who Have paid their
poll tax are entitled under the
law to vote, else they would pot
have paid their poll tax, and tbe
adootion of the amendment will
not make it possible for them to
yote twice. If a traveling man
from Fort Worth should be in
Lancaster on election day and
desire to vote on state questions
or for state candidates he would
have to present his poll tax re-
ceipt, which wquld be taken up
by the election officer and mailed
to him at his address, so that be
wonid not get it until after the
election was over.
If San Antonio, Laredo, Hous-
ton and the other citadels of
Booze thought it wonid do wbat
yon are afraid it will, they would
be for it. bat yon watch the re-
turns from these places on elec-
tion day. They want to retain
tbe voting strength of the thous-
ands of unnaturalized Mexicans,
as well as the other foreigners
tbroagh out Texas, nine ont of
ten of whom always vote anti.
My belief is that had this amend-
ment been a part of the State
Constitution in Texas in 1911,
Texas would now be a dry state.
Of course I may be mistaken as
to the effect ot this amendment,
but I have given it very careful
study. I know where the antis
are, and I’m like Cullen Thomas
who said in the campaign last
year that it.was enough for him
to know that Anhanser Bunch
was on the other side.

Hog Day in Lancaster
The origin of playing cards is
uncertain, although it is probable
that they appeared in Europe in
1350. It is asserted, however, that
the Arabs, Saracens or Moors in-
troduced them into Europe by way
ef Spain. They are said to hare
been brought from the country of
the Saracens to Viterbo, in Italy, in
1379. The earliest known mention
of European cards occurs in 1393.
Early in the fifteenth century the
Use of playing cards spread all over
Europe. A duty was nrst placed on
playing cards in England in 1615.
It is estimated that about 15,000,-
000 packs are annually manufac-
tured in the United States—In-

Yawn For Your Hoalth.
Dr. Naegeli, professor of medi-
cine at Liege university, commends
the practice of yawning as a physi-
cal reviver. A good yawn, the pro-
fessor maintains, is excellent for
the lungs and for all the breathing
organs as well. But. there is an art
in yawning, he says, just as there is
an art in breathing. Every yawn
should be as deep as possible, so as
to bring all the muscles of the
throat and chest into action, and
also to fill the lunga with a current
at fresh air.
Dr. Naegeli has known of many
caees in which a sore throat has
been alleviated by persistent yawn*
