Boy Gets $20,000 COTTON ADVANCES ON UNFAV-
ORABLE GOVERNMENT REPORT
An object of considerable
curiosity on our streets, the
other day, was an auto with a
New York license tag. It seems
like a visitor from a foreign
country, so seldom do we see
any but Texas tags. But wait
till we get that highway from
Schulenburg thru here and the
Smithville-Yoakum cut off and
we will see more of these foreign
cars in a day than we see now
in a year. If 10 per cent of
these tourists spend $5.00 each
(some will spend fifty) it would
leave at least $20,000 additional
money in Yoakum every year.
Is this item worth looking after?
Then too it might bring in some
new settlers. Anyway we want
more improved roads.
A speaker at the Rotary Club
yesterday said the worst roads
he encountered, in 1500 mile
drive, were within 10 miles of
Yoakum. He was not knocking
he was telling only what his con-
science dictated. We do not ask
him to stay away long but when
he comes again we hope he will
be able to say “The BEST roads
1 encountered were within 10
miles of Yoakum.

BUCKETS OF BUTTER USED
TO SMUGGLE LIQUOR
SAN ANTONIO, Tex, July 23—A
scheme by which bottled liquor had
been smuggled into Fort Sam Houston
for the past several months by putting
it in buckets of butter, came to light
today after questioning negro attend-
ants at the hospital.
After the men were arrested they
confessed that five men at the hos-
pital were involved in rum running.
Several soldiers are implicated in
the case and the military police ex-
pect to make arrests soon.
Every weapon, however, will be used : 1.44.

ing all the “exceptions” taken during
the eight days trial. *
