were here. From his early manhood
he always kept up an active part in
preaching the gospel. He also spent
an active part of his life in the Ma-
sonic fraternity. He is widely known
from activity in the Grand Lodge at

from West Texas, after which the
Masonic Lodge took charge of the
THE "EXES” WON
Well, the “Exes” won their game
from the Cats of 1925. The game was
a rouser. The Exes showed that they
still had the old* “punch." This year’s
team put up a brilliant fight against
the old stars and for a time seemingly
had the game on ice. All in all the
game was interesting and the big
crowd present went away entirely
satisfied with the day’s thrills.
The Exes started with a rash and
soon had the young Cats backed up
against their own goal line. The
youngsters however, played a strong
defensive game and smeared their
elders back down the field?E$jJy in

warehouses at Del Rio, Sonora, San
Angelo, Junction, Kerrville, and other
towns, and wait for buyers. They do
not have to wait long. Buyers from
Boston and ether Eastern and North-
ern points hustle right down to Texas
and look over the stocks and make
an offer. If the offer does not suit the
grower he says “no” and almost in-
variably the buyer increases his of-
fer. Sometimes he. decides to wait,
but the growers are also good wait-
ers and, as a general rule, they win
in playing this game.
Now, why not handle cotton the
same way? Take it to a warehouse,
grade it and staple it—get a ware-
house receipt and secure a loan at the
bank, if money is needed, and tell the
spinners where the cotton is stored;
what grade and staple it is and how
much, and let them send their buyers
to look it over.
There is more than one advantage
to this way of selling. Sometimes
cotton is overproduced. In such cases
the trade should be supplied its needs
at a reasonable price and the surplus
held over until the following season
or until it is needed. When a farmer
knows that he has got five or ten
bales of unsold cotton on hand
