WASHINGTON March 2. Back of the
threatened reVolt in the house against
president Wilson policy toward Oer-
pnany there was considerable politic that
la not altogether plain to the outsider.
Take the so-called "pork" meaaurW a a
ample and it becomes rather easy to
Illustrate my meaning. Scores of mem-
bers are very much depressed over the
outlook for pet meaaures for their dis-
tricts and they are playing all the angles
of the political game in the hope of rescu-
ing these bills from committee pigeon
holes and likewise enhancing their own
chances for re-election.
When a majority of the members of
the house from the West and Houth came
to Washington last )eoember they were
or thought they were opposed to Increases

was no doubt about their wilUngneu and
desire to vote for. a public buildings bill

IN DEMANDING MONEY.
In the matter of public buildings the
Texas delegation has not been at ell beck-
ward and Dallas and Fort Worth with
demands for considerably ov UMWM
are at the head of the list. There was
also no evidence of timidity when It
came to asking for appropriations for tha
various waterwaya of South Texas. These
Instances are but typloal of similar cases
throughout the Union. Hence It is that
when the members discovered sharp op-
position from administration sources to
prevent the passage of an omnibus public
buildings bid and a firm stand against
the inclusion of new projects In -the rTver
harbor bill there were many mutterlngs
This feeling has. not been allayed In the
slightest degree by events whloh have

Slogan "Pay Cash and Take a Bundle
An introductory discussion Intended to
lead to a permanent organisation of the
farmers of Hasria county was had at the
mass meeting of the Housewives league
and farmers Tuesday afternoon at the
The meeting waa well attended the
farmers being represented by probably 35
of their number men and women. Pres
ent at the meeting was H. M. Elliott head
I .of the marketing division In the extension
department 01 tne Agricultural ana Me-
chanical college and Judge Norman G.
Kittrell from the Chamber of Commerce.
PURPOSE TO BRINQ FARMERS
AND CONSUMERS TOGETHER.
Mrs. Bedford F. Coop president of the
league. In opening the meeting stated tjiat
the object of the meeting waa to bring
together the farmers and the consumers
into a closer relationship with each other
calling upon Mrs. M. J. Heaney chair
man of markets to talk further on the
Mrs. Heaney stated that it was her
idea after long experience and study that
the only thing to do in order to bring about
a better understanding and to establish
closer co-operation waa to get the house-
wives and farmers together to exchange
ideas on marketing the farmer's products.
Judge Norman U. Kittrell was the first
speaker giving a practical talk on gar-
dening from his long experience which
was of much value to the agriculturists
Mrs. Coop called for expressions as to
how this object can beet be attained.
Misa Ella LieBaume of Deepwater re
sponded with a good presentation of some
of the problems which she has met with
In strawberry culture and marketing
showing that by doing her own raising
picking and marketing she could make a
fair profit for her Labor. She drew a sig-
nificant comparison of the various per-
sons through which the farmer's prod-
ucts reached the consumer. Illustrating
she said that the farmer who raises
onions received 1 cent a pound for his
treble the railroad 1 cent for hauling the
commission man 1 cent for handling and
the middleman who hauls the oniona two
blocks away to the market makes cents
on a 6 cent bunch of onions for h)s ride.
Miss LeBaume suggested that steps
be taken to provide a market place where
the farmers could meet the consumers
direct which plan would protect the
farmer's legitimate profit and afford to
the consumer fresher and cheaper pro-
duce. Some one remarked that the city mar-
ket waa originally planned to eerve this
purpose but that ' It had drifted quite
away from its original lines.
"The farmers do not read enough" said
Miss Le Baume. "How can they under-
stand the questions pertaining to their
business when they do not read their
Mrs. Benlgna O. Kalb who waa present
asked why the farmer was not allowed
the market price for his produce; that
others who sold it received better prices.
Another speaker ooservea inai u tne
housewife goes to the market and carries
her purchases home thus saving cost of
delivery that she is entitled to a slight
reduction. Other points were made that
entered into the reducing of this price
showing the Itgltimate reasons why the
farmer selling direct need not require al-
together the market prices and yet en-
Joy a good profit.
TOLD OF MARKETS
Mrs. Mitchellwho has lived in Oregon
and Washington States described a mar-
ket system In Portland that baa proven
highly successful a system of building
stalls with shelters wide eonugh to pro-
tect the marketing crowds. The Drat of
these was so successful that a second waa
built. Every kind of produce waa mar-
keted there even to game brought by
Mrs. Coop read extracts from an ac-
count of a successful marketing system
worked out in New Orleans. From a curb
market of a few wagons there has de-
veloped In a remarkably short time
well established market where the con
sumer provides himself with fresh tup-
plies at a marked saving wnue tne rarm-
era are enjoying a much better profit.
In tbe splendid talk by Prefeasor Elliott
of the Agricultural and Mechanical col-
lege much light was thrown on the sub-
ject. Mr. Elliott Is an expert on market
ing and told the farmers ana housewives
that they were getting Into some of the
moat Important and profound subjects in
the country when they took un marketing
of the farmer's produce; that many phase
or tne question were involved in tne looal
business and he gave a most Interest-
ing and Instructive talk.
Present at the meeting were Mrs. Annie
E. Held county agent for the home dem-
onstration work of the government de

The nurse may fill a direct need which

The day nursery is open every day from
7 a. m. to 6 p. m. except Sundays for the
children of working mothers. The chil-
dren are bathed provided a substantial
midday meal and lunch In the afternoon
and have an outdoor and Indoor play-
ground. The little ones and older chil
dren needing rest during the day are I
required to take a nap. The charge le I
10 cent a day whenever possible for the I
parent to pay this fee.
We find sometimes fathers who are I
trying to keep the families together by
giving tne cnuaren over to the care of
people in boarding houses. We might
suggest that the nursery would fill this
need far better. Many of such children
are on the streets during the day and are
in auger of various sorts while the par
ents bcrieve them in some one's care.
The day nursery at the Settelement home
takes the responsibility of the care of the
children. They are kept clean and happv
and the parents may feel they are safe
during their absence.
