For County Treasurer
this Judicial District, composed
of Bosque and Johnson counties.
Judge S. C. Padelford was born,
reared and educated in the state
of Mississippi. He came to
Cleburne, Texas, just after he
had finished school and, without
money and friends commenced
the practice of law in the Judic-
ial District in U74, and he has
been in continual practice ever
since that time in Cleburne and
in this Judicial District. He and
Judge William Poindexter form
ed a co-partnership on the first
ask and hand decorated china,
and a vase of fleur de lis resting
on an embroideried center piece,
formed the table decorations.
And the good things served
thereon are not to he mentioned,
for—well—“Wouldn’t that make
you hungry?” Around the
board were seated, Mr. and Mrs.
Proffitt, Mr. and Mrs. Nooe, of
Tennessee, Mr. and Mr. H. K.

with the exception of the period they having spent the last nine
that Judge Poindexter was upon years in our midst. This occa-
the bench. Their firm has done sion but strengthened their rep-
one of the largest law practices j utation as entertainers beyond
in this section of the state. The j compare.
legal ability of Judge Padelford
was recognized by the lawyers
of Texas when the Slate Bar As-
sociation elected him president.
The Governor of the State re-
cognized his ability as a lawyer
by appointing him as one of the
Supreme Judges in the impor-
tant Austin Dam Case, the regu-
lar Judges being disqualified on
account of being taxpayers of
Austin, and the Court of Civil
Appeals recognized his ability as
a lawyer by appointing him ono
of the legal examiners. Judge
Padelford is one of the best read
lawyers in the state. He has had
over thirty-three years exper-
ience in the administration of
Justice. He possesses the re-
quisite legal ability, moral char
acter, executive ability, kindness
of disposition, consideration for
the rights of all, legal and equit
able discrimination and all of the
otheTqualities which go to make
up the ideal Judge and this pa
per hopes that the people of this
district may see it to their inter
est to elect him to the position
sought by him.
Mr. and Mrs. Proffitt were as-
sisted in entertaining by their
niece, Miss Colville. An improm
tu musicale was the finale to the
celebration which will linger long
in the memory of the fortunate
Maintenance Tax Defeated.
In the election here last Tues-
day to vote a maintenance tax
for school purposes not to ex-
ceed thirty cents on the one hun-
dred dollars, the issue was de
feated. The vote was as follows:
55 for and 30 against. As it re-
quired a two-thirds majority to
carry, it will be seen that only
five more votes were needed.
I take this method of announc
ing to the public that I will
stand my horse and jack 3 miles
west of Clifton on the old home
place. Terms $H.OO for insur-
ance. and $1.00 extra where pas-

The farmer-, traders one of worth
He L partner with the sky and earth,
He makes good use of sun and rain,
The multitude both great and small
Depend on him to feed them all.
The one that have the proper faith
Will plow and sow both soon and late
Am almost sure to make a start
Because he always does his part.
He never says it is no use
And go and get himself some bo o/.e
He ha-, a chance to have good health.
Which is much better than great wealth
The air he breathes is very pure
And then again he is almost sure
to eat the very best of food
For chickens, eggs and milk ai-e good
Its true he sometimes gets sick.J
But mo.tiy )u,y«n cure it quick,
And if he has no-time to loose
He knows what remedies to use
He know-, that Olsen's heat- them all
In winter, summer, spring and fall.
The children, to. do have their* ills,
j But cures abound in dale and bills,
| With indigestion, croup and such
They tin not have to sutler much
! Be good to them and got the best
’ Anti v. atcb how nature does the rest.

Itasca Lumberman Dead.
This is what remains of our immense stock of bargains according
to sale sheets. The one-third sold amounts to quite a neat sum of ready
cash, but we are not yet through with liquidating this bankrupt claim
of the court. Our shelves are still almost full of vast quantities of sea-
sonable spring goods and home necessities. We have enough Laces, In-
sertions, and Embroideries to trim every piece of Lingerie in Bosque
county. Prices are about half what you would have to pay other stores.
Dress Goods Are
Low in Quantity
But we still have some odds and ends of figured Lawns, Calicoes, Per-
cales, Batistes, and Cotton Checks, which are being offered at remnant
prices. In moving in from Womack, we found a miscellaneous lot of
shoes. Some of which are a little out of date, and slightly shelf worn,
that we threw out on a special counter and marked them down to a
mere fraction of their orginal cost. If you can find anything to fit you
in this lot the price will bring a broad grin on your face. Lots of other
stylish, neat and wearable foot wear MARKED DOWN TO A BASIS OF
DOUBLE VALUE FOR YOUR DOLLARS. In the Hardware side of the
house we are offering garden and such farm implements as are left, at
such low figures that you cannot afford to work with Old Implements.
Spend your cash where you get a good run for your money.
