“LIST WE FORGET, LEST WE FOR-

"God of out fathers known of old,
Lord of our far-flung battle line,
While we were <$Joytog the sun

-There to In the Recessional a pa-
thetic and timely appeal to our better
and more patriotic natures, to turn for
a moment from the gross considers
tion of purely selfish things and con-
sider the teachings of that “still small
voice” that lives alone in conscience
and in man.* Today, the natal day of
Anglo-Saxon liberty In Texas, we
might well pause and ask ourselves as
a nation, at a state, as a country
yea, even as a community—If there Is
anything that we should think well
and pfoder deeply, “lest we forget,
hjlt we forget”
I The price oar forefathers paid for
liberty which we now so mad en-
was Immeasurable’in the extent
nman sacrifice, suffering and un
we, their children, might enjoy
the priceless heritage of liberty which
la by divine decree the birthright of
every son of Canaan, they left home
and country, crossed deserts, swam
deep riven, fought Indians and wild
beasts, and died on battlefields far
from kind remand loving hands. Their
blood was poured out in unstinting
sacrifice from Lexington to San Ja-
cinto, till today the golden sunsets of
cur great state at eventide are but an
everlasting monument to the Sangui-
nary fields upon which they died.
Are we getting better or worse as a
people? How are we keeping the
splendid principles for which they paid
so great a price?
These are questions which every
Texan should today ask himself in
spirit of truth and patriotism.
Let ns all remember San Jacinto
and the glorious lesson it teaches—
“Leet we forget, leat we forget.”

FOR A PARK.
It is suggested that the piece of
ground just across, Fifth street In
front of the Rouss racket store would
make a nice little park, and further,
that as a park it would be a good place
for the band boys to meet and practice.
Not only thto, It could be fixed up
nicely with seats, and in the evening
ladies could meet there and spend a
few minutes or hours socially. '
A band stand could be erected in a
central place in the little park, and
two or three nights In every week the
boys, as we have said, could meet
there for practice.
AT Lufkin there is a band stand in
the center of the public square, and
the Hoo-Hoo band meets there regu-
larly every Wednesday night. Wednes-
day night is an event in Lufkin, and
many ladles come out to hear the mu-
The Tribune suggests that the own
ers of the ground to which reference
Is made will take kindly to the idea of
Its being used as a park and give their
consent to the same. ^

Don't talk about dull times. There

Verily, man that Is born of woman

For behold, when the meat ax or
the razor waxeth dull from much
usage, doth he not annex a whet rock
and a strop and hie himself to a seat
and there restore the edges.
Yea, verily, even so much so that

But behold when the people awake
In the morning and say each to the
other, “Verily, the town Is dead and
there is nothing doing,” and wax
optimistic nit, do they go forth Into
the city and make things happen?
Aber nicht. Behold, they say
“What’s the use” and strange oaths
fill the air, and the sound of the
mourner Is heard in the land. And
they sometimes, sit In the gates of
the city and wait for something to
turn up, which turns not because none
there are who will work on .the lever.

to Impress on the citizens of Sour
Lake the importance of making an
effort to settle the country hereabouts
with a thrifty class of truck farmers.
Beaumortt, Housjbn, Galveston and
New Orleans are the outside markets

ence to the land around Orange. Fruit

would pay vyell in thto section.
Miss Alice L. Webb of Nacogdoches,
has sent samples of tobacco grown on
the Webb farm near that city to the
Chabmer of Commerce, and tbe same
has been placed on exhibition in tbe
quarters of the Chamber of Commerce.
The samples were sent through Mr.
J. L. Keith of thto, city. It Is the In-
tention of the Chamber of Commerce
to have the special train on the ex-
cursion up the East Texas switched
off the road and ran over to the Webb
farm, so that the members going can
see one of the greatest tobacco farms
In the United States and see and learn
all that they can absorb about the cul
tore of tobacco—rBeaumont Enter-
And Mr. Shefler the tobacco expert
while at Orange a few days ago stated
that a first class wrapper tobacco
could be grown here. Tbe day will
come, perhaps, when Orange will be
growing and shipping and even manu-
facturing tobacco and cigars.

his will In a hurry anl leaves a legal |

to the devil.—Sulphur Springs Ga-'
It looks very much like that life is
a hurry all ’round from the cradle to
the grave—a regular hurry up game
on limited schedule as It were. "
The Bible says cleanliness is next
to godliness. But people do not nec-
essarily have to be godly to be clean.
It Is stated on good authority, and It is
really a matter of fact, that the city
of Havana, Cuba, has had hardly any
yeljow fever since its occupation by
the Americans a few years ago.
The first thing the Americans did
at Havana, after taking the place, was
to inaugurate a complete system of
sanitary work under the supervision
of experts. It took a long time to get
the city In decent condition, but the
task was finally accomplished, and
today yellow fever Is almost as scarce
there as at Memphis.
The Introduction and operation of
modern sanitary methods has almost
eliminated various disease pests that
have heretofore made not a few of our
large cities uncomfortable.
The new mayor of Houston has just
commenced a vigorous campaign
against filth in his city, and yesterday
he advertised for one hundred extra
hands to help in the work. The most
important committee in the city coun
ell. If there Is such committee at all.
should be the committee on public
health and cleanliness. See that
everybody keeps their premises clean
and that no decaying or dea l matter
be allowed to remain till it becomes a
nuisance. There Is no use, however,
to wait until we are told by the^clty
council or Civic club about theBe mat
ters. We should know it instinctively.
Let's all consider ourselves a commit
tee of the whole to help keep the city
nice and clean.
