QUESTION OF HOME*
“The matter of owolpg laud in
Ireland is one that is arousing
much discussion just now,” he
said, but I am far more interest-
ed in the quarter of a million
tenant farmers in Texas, whose
situation Vs far worse than that
of the people in Ireland Statis-
tics say that there are so many
farm homes in Texas—shacks in
which a man and his family can
exist do not constitute homes—
what we need is for the man who
tills the soil to have a chance to
own his own home.
“Col. Henry Exall is doing h
great work in his effort for con-
jservarion of the soil. To my
| mind, however a greater problem
S is the conservation of men. Give
the man a chance to own his
j home and he will save the soil.
| But that is becoming fast an im-
I possibility in Texas. The land
is being bought up'by a few men
| and exploited at such high prices
that it is practically out of the
reach of those who really wish to
‘ We do not need more labor
statutes passed, but labor in the
organic law of the State. We
want more houses owned and
rented. Let us see if we cannot
develop a constitutional provision
making it possible for a man
who has no home to get one.
Let us tax the lands so high that
we will break up this landlord-

A farm cannot be properly
conducted without livestock pro-
duction and soil fertilization.
* Bow to Bankrupt tba Doctors
A prominent New York physician
says. “ If it were not for the thin
stockings and thin soled shoes worn
by women the doctors would probab-
ly be bankrupt.” When you con-
tract a cold (Jo not wait for it to de-
velop into pnuemonia’ but treat it at

Colds, and has won a wide reputation

Fit His Case Exactly.
“When father was sick about
six .years ago be read an advertise-
ment of Chamberlain's Tablets in the
papers that fit his case exactly."
writes Miss Margaret Campbell of
Ft, Smith. Ark. “He purchased a
box of them and he has not been sick
since. My sister has storpach trouble
and was also benefited by Chero.'’

TO LIMIT LAND OWNED'
Senator McNealus said that he
believed a good plan would be to
make a law that no one person
I could own more than 160 acres
I in Texas, and only that amount
I for the purpose of cultiation.
| He suggesten that it might be
a good idea to confiscate the re-
mainder to the State at the value
returned by the owner to the tax
Assessors. Then he would have
I the State sell this confiscated
hand to bona tide settlers in the
J same manner that the Federal
Goverment disposed of its home
i stead lands, by a small payment
[down and long time for the bal-
"If lie cannot get himself a
home, what's the "use of saying
'the laborer is worth his hire?9
"I am also in favor of a law

schools until they are 16 years
of age. 1 wish that we might

Croup and Congh Remedy.
Croup is a terrible disease, it at-
tacks children so suddenly thev are
very apt to choke unless given the
proper remedy at once. There is i
nothing better in the world than Dr.
King’s New Discovery. Lewis
Charnbelain, of Manchester. Ohio,
writes about his children: “Some-
times in severe attacks we were afraid
they would die, but since we proved
what a certain remedy Dr. King's New;
Drscovery is. we have no fear. We
rely on it for croup, coughs ard
colds.'” So can you. 50c and 81.00.
