were not allowed to visit the young

study hours. This action undoubtedly

THE POSTOmCK PROBLEM.
As was to have been expected,
should the Democratic party be vic-
torious, many staunch and true Dem-
ocrats, scarred by many a hotly con-
tested political battle, would become
applicants for appointments within
the power of the administration, and
because of their unswerving loyalty
and fidelity to the party, demand that
they be appointed, eveu though many
there were In the column, as equally
'deserving. So it is with the postof-
five proposition in this city. While
there are not any who have publicly
avowed their intention, we are assur-
«\l|hy several that when the time
rvimes to make it known they will be
aspirants. In the meantime, we think
It advisable to carefully consider the
situation and arrive at some satisfac-
tory manner in which each and all
who desire, shall have an equal show
for success. It has been suggested
by some congressmen that a primary
should be held for the purpose of
those who are patrons of u postofflce.
selecting one out of the number of
candidates to fill the position, which,
to our way of thluking. Is the proper
method. It Is patent that a congress-
uu who have as many friends in
their districts will be beset with many
applications and petitions for their
endorsement, and that they cannot
give it to each of them, and they must
select from out the number, one who.
In their opinion, will best till the po
sitlon, one who will be of more use
to them In future as a field marshal
in the next campaign, thus defeating
the very principles of Democracy, and
the purpose for which the postofflce
IMS established True, this has been
tft* custom heretofore, but never In
the history of the party will there be
as many aspiring to the federal offi-
ces us at ibis time, and to subserve
the Intcroapt of those who are patrons
of m postoffke. they should have the
choosing or the officer. Already In
soma cities of Texas a regular cam-
paign Is being wait'd, and the papers
are full of the .netting forth of each
aandldnte’s qualifications. The post-
offices were established for the con-
venience of the people, and the post-
Hiasiers are appointed to serve the
people ns are other public servants,
and they are better prepared to select
these servants than their representa-
tives In congress, or any official In
Washington. One of the slogan* of
tjftr* recent campaign was "Let the
People Rule,” and here is an oppor-
tunity to put that slogan into effect.
Those of the candidates for this office
who claim such loyalty to party
should not hesitate to agree to enter
the lists, and abide the result, and
mot one who has been approached
opon the subject but has seemed to
think it the proper manner iu which
to settle the question.
It is eald that Austin has a suffi-
cient number of applicants to make
ap President Wilson’s entire official
slate. There was
It seems that nowadays one cannot
be a partisan without having a sel-
fish motive for being so. For instance
take a look at the long string of
“original Wilson men" who are ap-
plying for patronage, and who will In
some instances bolt the ticket at the
next general election If they don’t
get a big piece of pie. All of which
is inclined to cause the loss of confi-
dence In consistency.
never a blamed
thing the matter with Austins’ mod-
asty or Austin’s nerve.
There Is no doubt but that the ex-
treme high cost of living is caused
by the fact that there are more con-
sumers than producers. Some one of
the consumers, we infer, has taken
th< lime to figure out that If every-
body worked three hours a day, six
days in the week in producing sorae-
Jhlng, there would be a surplus of
things to eat and to wear, and there
would be no high prices for anything.
But then, if we had no leisurely con-
sumers we would now be as Ignorant
of the eause of the high cost of living
as before, So what’s the use.

It Is with regret to many that they see

In the city of Dallas
It has been the universal experience
of directors of agricultural fairs in
Texas that as money-makers they are
failures. The old State Fair at Dallas
went down to nothing as a private
concern. The Spring Palace at Fort
Worth burned and was never rebuilt,
i The Cotton i’ai2ce at M’aCo burned
and was not rebuilt for years. The In-
ternational Fair at San Antonio has
closed its doors. The Fruit Palace at
Tyler Is a thing of the past. Ail of
j these_institutions failed because their
1 directors thought to make money out
j of them and could not, and there have
| been dozens of smaller fairs, county
! fairs, that have failed for the same
I To succeed a fair must have some-
thing new each year. New buildings
must be built, for the lair must grow
bigger or else grow smaller. New and
better premiums must be offered. The
grounds must be made more attrac-
tive and new conveniences provided.
All these things call for the expen-
diture of money, and diretcors who
are trying to make the fair pay divi-
dends are slow to spend money in
merely making things more attractive
It would be well for all of the fairs
in the Southwest, county as well as
the larger institutions, to study the
plan under which the State Fair at
Dallas was reorganized and is now
conducted, for it is the only plan that
will succeed. There are no dividends,
but all the profits each year are used
in providing bigger and better pre-
miums for the next year, in building
better, bigger buildings, and in other-
wise improving and beautifying the
grounds. The State Fair gorunds at
Dallas is now a city park, a public in-
stitution in every sense of the word,
operated for the public good. So must
It be with the smaller fairs.
There is no questioning the value
of the agricultural fair to the com-
munity in which it is held. But its
value and success are measured by
the degree of public spirit on which
it is founded and by which it is oper-
ated. If intended as a money maker
it had as well close its gates, for it
will call for assesments rather than
declare dividends. If intended as a
combination amusement and educa-
tional Institution, ft will succeed, pro-
vided the management is sane. There
should'be mor£ county and communi-
ty fairs, but let them be founded on
right principles.—Farm & Ranch .
AN OPEN LETTER.
It is rather early, but a word In
time will probably save the giver and
the receiver disappointment. It ia up
to Weatherford people to watch their
Christmas packages if they are to be
sent through the mails A friendly
warning has been Issued by the pots-
offlce department. The contents of
packages which have escaped from
their original bindings will be sent
to the dead letter office at Washing-
ton, and on a certain day will be auc-
tioned off Christmas packages will

tions. but as the parcels post goes

good Idea to acquaint yourself with

We have all heard of the kind min-
ister who announced to his congrega-
tion that something should be done
for the orphans, when a member of

The Retail Merchants’ Credit Asso-
ciation of Weatherford has decided
to publish a good credit rating book,
and a competent committee is now at
work compiling the ratings from th<*
various records. The bqok, when
completed, -will contain the name of
every person In Weatherford and
The date for publishing this credit
rating book has not yet been fixed by
the Association, as considerable re-
mains to be done upon it. It will be
published by Jan. 1, 1913.
This is a very Important matter to
all persons who wish to keep their
credits up to the standards.
It is the purpose of the Merchants
Association to free themselves from
the professional dead beat.
The Association has nothing to con-
ceal. it is no dark Ipntern organiza-
tion. It has no secrets to keep from
the public. It lives for the purpose
of protecting those who pay their just
obligations ltd object is to create a
more thorough understanding and
friendly feeling between buyer and
seller, and to build Weatherford and
Parker county. There is nothing that
so potentially tends to that end as
good credits. The community known
abroad as one whose business men
and citizens generally meet their ob-
ligations promptly is one which gains
the attention of the outside world.
This is intended as a notice to
those who have l»een careless in pay-
ing their accounts, that they may ap-
pear with a good rating In this book
when published. The only way In
which this may be done is by prompt-
ly settling accounts now due.

Baltimore, .Me!., Nov. II.—“The In-
fluence of Education in the Preven-
tion of Crime" ' as discussed before
the Congress of the American Prison
Association by Dr. Daniel Phelan,
president of the American Association
of Prison Surgeons and surgeon of
the Dominion Penitentiary at Toron-
to, Canada. “The old saying that ‘an
ounce of prevention is worth more
than a pound of cure,” said Dr. Phe-
lan, In opening his address, “is trite
but very true. In regard to the crimes
winch become daily more prevalent
in the world and which constitute a
veritable menace to society, much
thought has .been given to devising
means whereby they might be lessen-
“The criminal tendencies come from
heredity, environment, the atmosphere
in which they have been condemned
to live, and from other and equally
self-evident sources, hut since educa-
tion or early training has much to do
with the prevention of the multipli-
cation of those who lead irregular
lives in the world, I have selected that
particular question as the subject of
my brief investigation. As the lack
of proper education is the cause of a
large percentage of crime today, con-
versely, the encouragement of suit-
able education must necessarily tend
to the diminishing of the number of
those enemies of society who are so
frequently present amongst us.
“We all know that the impressions
made on the young mind are the most
lasting, and wield the greatest influ-
ence in shaping the future life of the
individual. It is generally conceded
that the only way the state can deter
permanently the malefactor from the
commission of his evil deeds is by’ ed-
ucating him, for the weakness of the
will' power of the youth who is af-
flicted with evil tendencies can be
strengthened by training and suitable
education, the main purpose of which
is not to enlighten the mind by means
of a proficiency in certain studies;
rather it is to prepare the individual
to live in society, to awaken in him
favorable tendencies to action, intel-
lectual incentives to good itees, and
the highest sentiments of moral obli-
gation. The germs of moral insanity
and also of crime are no doubt devel-
oped early in life, as the youth passes
through a nervous and irritable state
incident to his growth and develop-
ment. and is consequently more emo-
tional, impulsive and wilful during
that critical period. Early education
should, therefore, be directed towards
correcting the inherited and anti-so-
“The state has it in its power to
greatly improve conditions; to estab-
lish means by which proper instruc-
tion can be given on certain lines, and
suitable training given to the mind,
the will, and the moral senses. Phi-
lanthropy has a vast field whereon to
exercise Its benevolence and its en-
deavors; remembering, however, that
the education which I aim at pointing
out as a mean* of making the good
citizen, is especially one of moral as
well as physical training, and not the
cultivation of the n^nd alone. An in-
dividual enjoying such an education
is worthy of the best consideration
of hiB fellow man.
"Take a poor, neglected youth, in-
clined to evil tendencies, and alive
with ungovernable passion, and light
up for him the torch of knowledge,
and touch the hardness of his heart.

education would likely have upon one
who was possessed of the finer feel-
