No Pool Halls After May 1.
Governor Hobby has signed
Senate Bill No. 14, which forbids
the operation of pool and billiard
halls for profit, and under this
law these places must be closed
on May 1.
Before signing the bill the
governor submitted two ques-
tions to the Attorney General’s
Department. They were an-
swered by First Assistant. W. A.
Keeling, who advised that the
bill will not prevent the opera-
tion of pool and billiard tables
where no charge is made for
playing, such as in private
homes, Y. M. C. A. halls and
bona fide social clubs. However,
if a charge is made for playing,
even though it is to cover the
Former Resident of This Section
Burned to Death.

death in a coal mine. No other
particulars of the tragedy have
Mr. Nelson moved from near
Honey Grove to Oklahoma about
twenty-five years ago. His wife

We had a very hard rain here last
Thursday afternoon. East of town
the wind tore up Henry’s White’s
barn and blew the top off of a negro
house on E. McClure’s place. North
of town in the Forest Hill neighbor-
hood, it blew the houses of Mr. Beas-
ley and Mr. Saunders off the blocks,
and blew down some trees.

The remains of Edward W. Snow
arrived here Sunday from Madill,
Okla., where he was killed by some
machinery falling on him at the oil
mill. The funeral was at Hickory
Grove cemetery, conducted by Rev.
Minus. He is survived by his wife,
two daughters, two brothers and one
sister. He was reared in the White
Rock community, south of town, and
many old friends deeply sympathize
with his grief-stricken family,

Paris, attended the funeral of .Mr.
Snow’s brother here Sunday.
Germany’s Need ©f Cotton.
From reports coming out of
Germany it would appear that
the Germans would be glad to
help solve our cotton problem if
they were given a chance. The
Germans would help this situa-
tion by buying some cotton
clothes which they are very
much in need of, and thereby in-
crease the consumption of cot-
ton at once, which is the main
thing needed right now.
It is a matter of common
knowledge that the people of
Central Europe have received
little cotton during the last four
years, and their supply of cotton
clothing is extremely low, while
the prices are prohibitive. Al-
though economic and political
conditions are unsettled, a de-
mand for cotton clothing would
soon appear if the raw material
could be gotten to their factories
and the factories put into opera-
A correspondent in Bremen
writes that 95 per cent of the
spindles of Germany are idle and
that one million people, of a
employment if the mills could be
started. Germany imported be-
fore the war 2,800,000 bales of
cotton annually, mostly from
America. If she could get some
cotton now it would help to re-
lieve her internal situation, and
at the same time would help to
move surplus stocks in the

There is nothing: you can buy which you can enjoy buying so much
as a Columbia Grafonoia—save possibly an automobile.
People who have bought Columbia Grafonolas have done so because
they were sure it was a Columbia they wanted.
If you have a doubt as to which type of instrument you want, or what
kind of finish you prefer, you will find ample opportunity to decide in
any store where Columbia Grafonolas are sold.
With instruments priced at $18.00 to $250.00 — all before you—all
ready to be played to your contentment—you can judge the Grafonoia
by any test you wish and buy it with the unshaken conviction that you
could not have made a better choice, t
