There will be many and im-
portant changes in Lancaster
within the next two years, and
our citizens should begin to en-
large their view ooint and be
ready to meet the'demand for
these changes and be prepared
to cope with the emergencies and
opportunities which will present
themselves. With the coming of
the . interurban our residence
district will be enlarged, with an
increased population, new busi-
ness will come and there will be
franchises to let. We want to be
alive to all these changes and
look well to the interest of the
community. It is not always the

our city council and commercial
clnb should be assured of more
than hot air before signing away
rights. There is great need of
an ice factory and electric light
plant, and these two improve-
ments are sure to come, among
the first. Let no private grudge
or personalities stand in the way
of civic improvements.
In the mass meeting called to
consider the advisibihty ot sink-
ing another artesian well it de-
veloped that the leasee of the city
water plant was willing to cut
the price of water one half to
farmers hauling water from our
artesian well, making it to them
at two and one-half cents per
barrel. T^his was accepted, and
then* will be no move made for a
new well at present. Mr. Brit-
tingham says the Lancaster well
is the best he has ever been con-
nected with. The service is very
satisfactory, but the rates are
high, and there is a great deal
of dissatisfaction over same.
The fact of the matter is, the
rate charged is the same as
jestablished by the city, but which
was never enforced, a rate suited
to each patron of the system be-
ing given by the former manage-
ment. c. We do not know if the
matter can be adjusted or not,
but the rate is excessive. How-
ever it puts the water man in a
better light before the people
when itJs known he is only enforc-
ing the rate found in the ordi-
nance book. Of course there is
uo law against his going before
the city council and having the
ordinance revised and a more
reasonable rate made.

The hen Is the patron of mechanics,
science and art and is further ad-
vanced in civilization than any other
animal. She is a splendid advertiser, a
good money maker and she uses so
many labor-saving devices that she
lives a life of ease and luxury. The in-
cubator relieves her of the necessity of
hatching her young; her nest is built
by master mechanics; glass eggs take
the place of the home-made product
for decoy purposes and she roosts on
automobiles. She is progressive, practi-
cal and happy and merrily sings as she
lays 5,000,000 eggs per day.
The egg is the only animal product
that" is good for food and will produce
Its specie. It is the only product known
to creation that has a dual commercial
value and it finds its way to every ta-
ble in the universe.
The poultry business in Texas has
reached mammoth proportions. Durin;*
the past year the total production. It^

proximated $25,000,000. The egg output
was worth $18,000,000. The Texas hen
lays three times her value per annum.

The Honey Bee
The honey bee is nature’s factory,
and this family of insects is the only
one which completely manufactures
and stores a product ready for the
market without the aid of man and the
Ingenuity of the human race has never
been able to imitate its products. So
completely does it monopolise the man-
Like the human race, there are many
drones in the colony, but as a whole
the bee is the highest type of energy,
thrift, and enterprise in the animal
kingdom and it leads in Intelligence,
foresight and business persistency.
They are the most orderly and best
governed of any class of animals, not
excepting the human race. Their meth-
ods of government form the basis of
the constitution, of every civilized na-
tion on the globe, and so perfect is this
primitive system of government that
no changes pi or additions to their laws
have been necessary since the begin-
ning of creation and they have Fewer
and Better Laws than any other organ-
ized form of animal society. The “spirit
of the hive*' is oftentimes more condu-
cive to peace and industrial activity
than public sentiment of civic commu-
The Texas Almanac of 1910 estimates
that we have 800,000 swarms valued at
$9.17 each, making a total value oi
$6,600,000, and last year the output of
honey and wax sold for $3,500,000. This
is a return of 58 per cent on the in-
vestment. No banker or broker will un-
dertake to compete with them in divi-
dends and money Invested In an apiary
is as safe as in a bank vault. No domes-
tic animal or insect has been able to
approach the honey bee as a revenue
producer and none can compare with it
In popularity of product.
The climate of Texas permits the bee
to work $86 days In the year and the
soil produces blossoms, buds and flow-
ers for these little harvesters to reap
the entire year. The natural vegetable
growth of Texas is rich in honey prod-
ucts and no country on the globe la
