The Van Alstyne News states
it very cleverly when it says “by
this time next week it will either
be ‘Mac’ll do’ or ‘MacAdieu.’ ”
A few days ago Mr. Day and
Miss Knight were married up in
Missouri. We shall now See
whether Shakespeare knew what
he was talking about when he
said “as surely as the night fol-
lows the day.” We have already
been shown that it is possible for
man to turn Knight into Day.

Eugene Debs has given out the
word that he will not be the So-
cialist candidate for President
this year. Of course that is Mr.
Debbs’ business, and we have no
right to protest, but it will be
like missing an old friend or
stand-by when people look over
their presidential ballot and find
Eugene Debbs’ name missing.
People like to know how to
grow things, so this week we
take pleasure in telling them
how to grow carrots. Jack Fal-
staff, of Ohio, the world’s great-

on. Carrots should be planted
ten feet under a concrete walk
and fertilized with a mixture of
salt and lye.

There are those who believe
and preach that murder can be
prevented by prohibiting the sale
or possession of pistols. They
remind us of the boy McGuffey’s der’s trooper,
old third reader told about.
This boy didn’t like arithmetic
and tried, to destroy the science
of mathematics by breaking his
slate, forgetting all about the
other ways people can figure.
Pistols are the weapons used in
some murders, but if a person
has murder in his heart he can
find other ways of despatching

damages. And the man couldn’t
have married the woman even if
he had wanted to.
guns kill many, so do knives and
rocks. The most brutal murder
ever committed in this section
was done with a hammer. The
Franks boy was murdered by
two rich young men in Chicago
with a chisel. The heart is the
real killer. Most anything can be
used to do the killing.

James E. Ferguson was ousted
from the Gevernor’s chair, the
State Senate having sustained
impeachment charges against
him. The ousting carried dis-
qualification with it, and under
the law Mr. Ferguson can not
hold office in Texas. Since his
impeachment Mr. Ferguson has
been trying to come back.
Democratic committee was in
doubt as to whether, under the
Jaw, Mr. Ferguson’s name could
be printed on the ballots used in
the primary election, but gave
Mr. Ferguson the benefit of the
doubt. This year legal proceed-
ings were instituted to keep Fer-
guson’s name off the ballots.
That Oil Suit. .Who Won?
The State of Texas has just
“won” a suit before the Supreme
Court of the United States. It
involves the location of the boun-
dary line between Texas and
Oklahoma which our geographies
have always told us is marked by
the Red river, that is along
where the suit originated. There
would never have been suit but
for the fact that oil was discov-
ered along the river and Okla-
homa coveted the taxable wealth
thus ^created. The suit was
foughiout in the courts on the
question of the location of the
boundary; was it the north bank
or the south bank or the center
of the stream? And if either
bank, was it the cut bank, the
low water mark or the high wa-
ter mark? What Texas “won”
was the establishment of the
state’s contention as to the river
bank being the boundary and the
right to collect the production
tax on the oil that has been pro-
duced by the wells located within
that portion of the disputed strip
which was within this state.
Oklahoma not only lost what was
sued for but the United States
government was awarded a strip
of territory in between. The real
losers by the affair are the peo-
ple who own the property that
the states sued over, and they
have been called upon to partici-
pate in the expense of a receiver-
ship which has held up some
twelve or fifteen million dollars
that was left from the operation
of the leases during the months
of litigation. And the operating
expenses of receiverships are no-
toriously high. Also the state
treasury had to bear the cost of
the courts. Worse than all, the
Federal government has acquired
a strip of overflow land that has
oil under it and the potentialities
of another oil scandal.—Houston
