Hondo Lions are fortunate in I av-
I 'nK two physicians as members, one
I of them, Dr. Smith, being their chair-
| man. When the slogan “Hondo, the
town without a mosquito” was sug-(
gested at the meeting last Tuesday,!
and the motto “The mosquito must
be destroyed” was proposed, Dr. Smith
1 outlined the method of attaining
these ends. Here is the gist of his
recommendations: put oil in your
1 cisterns at regular intervals (about
every two weeks); mash all tin cans
Ion the premises flat; look after the
| “little" breeding places, such as
i where the faucet drips. The mosqui-
[ toes that bother us most are those
which are bred on our own premises
1 or in the immediate neighborhood.
Eternal vigilance is necessary on the
part of all to rid our town of this
source of discomfort and disease.
W'ho will help make Hondo “The
town without a mosquito?" Secretary
Jungman will please count the votes.
The program committee for next
Tuesday has been ordered to try to
have a state traffic official present
at the next meeting to help Hondo
solve a number of traffic and parking

Candidate* Warming Up
Someone has computed that there
are 7,81*5 candidate* for office in
lexas, all of them rushing frantically
about trying to attract a Irttle atten-
tion and get their name* in the
paper*. 1 hey are the main support of
the picnics and barbecues and a per
petual joy to the lemonade vendors.
Some scientists say that it is the heat
radiating trom the candidate.* that
makes the weather hotter in Texas in
j campaign years; others attribute it to
the barbecue pits, while still others
»y R merely seems hotter because of
the mental energy that is spent in
Hie guessing contest as to who will be
Som« Poor Gueiter*
If the candidate, especially those
running for Governor, prove as in-
efficient in the auministrauon of of-
ficial duties as they are at guessing,
the State is in for a bad way. Every
aspirant for offices is declaring that
he is sure to be elected, and many
of them are giving the approximate
figures. Common sense tells us that
most of them are wrong and that the
joy of campaigning and of being
temporarily in the public eye is al!
; they will get out of their efforts.
And, oh, the pain8 that will follow
! the frolic!
Good "Growing" Weather
In the mean time, the cotton and
corn and feedstuffs that have been
kept cultivated and free of grass and
weeds are delighting in the sunshine
that followed the* rains of June and
are bringing smiles to the faces of
the farmers who haven’t been taking
politics too seriously. The corn and
other feeds are aDout made. Cotton
picking is under way in that section
farthest South, blooms are appearing
in the farthest fields north, and if
the co-ops are able to win out in the
contest with the market gamblers and
secure a fair price for farm products,
Texas farmers will huve money to
lend to the banks.
Dairying and Poultrying
The side lines that have done most
to keep up the courage of tile tann-
ers the past year have been dairy-
ing and poultrying (if you will al-
low the coining ot a word.) Farmers
have used good judgment in depend-
ing on these more than on so-called
“farm relief.” Prices have been low,
it is true, but the cash has been com-
ing in every week with which to meet
current expenses and as a conse-
quence there are fewer mortgages on
cotton crops than ever before. Many
farmers have been growing vege-
tables and fruits, for which they have
found fair markets, and the shrewd
diversifiers have deposits instead of
debts at the banks, or else are get-
ting out from under the debts creat-
ed under the one-crop farming sys-
Business men of Texas are sup-
porting with money and influence a
trade school to be opened at Dallas
next fall for all branches of the
printing and building trades. In this
day of emphasis on education, too
little attention is being paid to voca-
tional training, except for those
young people who are able or in-
clined to take complete high school
and collegiate courses. The public is
too inclined to force students,
whether they will or no, through the

Correspondence between a DeYY’itt
county tomato grower and a Cana-
dian consumer, originating from a
card packed with the tomatoes, re-
vealed that the Canadian paid 35
cents a pound for tomatoes for which

course it is expensive to ship Texas
tomatoes into Canada, hut very few
persons will believe that the Texas
grower received enough of that 35
Summar Tourists Numerous
Texas tourist resorts all report a
large increase in early summer tour-
ist travel over former years. Many
of the hotels and camps were filled
throughout June. In the San Antonio
section, especially, an unusually large
number of out-of-state automobiles
are noticed on the roads and in the
camps. Texas is attracting a summer
tourist trade that almost equal* the

An Edinburg grape grower, with
a 35-acre vineyard in which vines 15
months old are producing in market-

the same varieties grown in Califor-

as California grapes, Texans are tind-
ing that there are few products grown
anywhere else that cannot be grown
as well or beter in Texas.
Textile Mill Progress
Work is being pushed on the in-
stallation of machinery and improve-
ment of the grounds of the textile

,are being completed and the mill
grounds a. baing landscaped and
parked in keeping with the beautiful
se-ting of cne miu plant on the banks
of the Colorado river. Marble Falls
has been a long while realizing its
desire for a textile mill and is all the
happier now that it is a worthwhile

The census enumerators couldn’t
find any increase in the population
of Longview in the past ten years,
but the Longview News lists more
than 50 evident improvements, most-
ly industrial, that show conclusively
that "that old town ain't w'hat it used
to be.” A look at the town by one
who knew it back in ’20 shows that
much energy has been used in its im-
provements that make for good liv-
ing, and but few of the objectionable
characteristics so often found in

MEDINA COUNTY FAIR DIREC-
The directors of the 1930 Medina
County lair, which is to be held on
the 8, 9, lo and II of November,
had their regular meeting at Cham-
ber of Commerce Hull. All members
promised to do their very best to
make the 1930 lair better than any
we have had yet. A committee was
appointed to get advertising for the
catalogue. They also gave the fair
grounds a going over and decided to
make several different arrangements
and also some improvements. Meet-
ings of the Directors are held on the
second Tuesday night in each month.
