Houston, Tex.: With largo delega-
tions from almost ovary commuaity
along the Gulf Coast of Louisiana aad
Texas present, the Interstate Inland
Waterways convention was called te
order at Turner Hall Friday moraiag,
and the session demonstrated that the
people along the proposed route are
more enthuslaatoc than ever over the
the prospects of securing an Inside
route channel for the transportation
of heavy and slow moving freight
along the coast between New Orleans
and Brownsville. Men who have spent
their lives, almost ia trying to work
up sentiment for the development of
the warterways of the Texas coast and
rivers state now that they expect te
witness the reallzstion of their dreams.
Comunlty rivalry was relegated te
the background In the expressions
luring tne convention today and the
mportance #f concerted and combined
efforts for the benefit of all empha-
sised. Every speaker laid particular
jtress upon this point—that commun-
ity rivalry should not deter the devel-
Ipment of the coast of Texas and Lou-
isans, and there were no dissenting
voices. The sincerity of every speaker
and delegate who expressed himself
»n this point could not be doubted, and
at times the enthusiasm ran high. A
more enthusiastic gathering could not
have been assembled and as some one
remarked, the enthusiasm was all the
more remarkable when It was consid-
ered that the meeting was a water-

Congressman Burgess said In part:
“It affords me pleasure to talk oa
the project to which I have given much
attention, a project which offers moro
benefit than any proposed In the coun-
try. Now what are the benefits to be
derived from thlB project which Is for
a channel nine feet deep and 100 feet
wide from New Orleans to Browns
ville? They are local and general.
Consider existing conditions. South
Louisiana and South Texas are Just
awakening to the fact that no like
territory In point of productiveness ex-
ists In America. Traversed by Inland
Waterways project ars the great lum-
ber, ell, rice, sulphur and salt regions
•f the two states. For many miles It
will tap the most productive truck
lands Is the world as It will the entire
fish and oyster belt of the two states,
and, by the way, Texas is far behind
her sister atatea In developing her fish
and syater resources."
Saying "Hello” to Heart Throb*.
’Tt is a curious thing,” said a prom-
inent lecturer recently, “how some
books have a strong radiating person-
ality, ao that you feel like saying
‘Hewdy’ every time you come across
them. Last Christmas I visited friends
back at the old home on the farm.
When the supper dishes had been put
away, the chores done and the evening
lamp lighted we gathered beside the
•rga* for a good old fashioned ‘sing.
On the eenter table were strewn the
Christmas remembrances taken from
Christmas tree en the evening before.
Glancing ever them I suddenly ex-
olaimed *Hello! my g##d friend,
Hells!’ and as the others looked up
with surprise, I picked up a cepy ef
’Heart Throbs’ and read te them from
tta pages the ‘piece’ I spehe In
aeheel it years ago.
“That was enough te set in motion
the friendly entertaining spirit of
Heart Throbs, and the music was for-
gotten as we took turns reading the
humorous and pathetic bits of pross
and verse that have been preserved
in this wonderful volume. Some books
have great literary value, some have
historical significance, but Heart
Throbs is the only book I know that
slept you on the back la a friendly
sort of way, suiting Itself to your
moods and proving faithful t# every
emotion. Next to my love ef the Bible
I love Heart Throba. It ia tho most
notable book of the times.**

Not long ago a Boston municipal of-
