Dependability, Satisfaction and Honest Value
IS SOLVED AT LAST
The problem of selecting a College
with which to entrust the business
training of your son and daughters is
of the utmost importance. Human
lives are involved—your own flesh
and blood—and the training received
will become an inseparable part of
those lives. If good, it will bring suc-
cess and honor;.if poor, it will prove
a handicap for life
At Tyler Commercial College the
maintenance of a high moral stan-
dard is considered of first importance
and, when you entrust your sons and
daughters to our care, you may be
sure that they will be surrounded by
influences that will make for upright
manhood and womanhood, as well as
for educational thoroughness.
The Tyler School employs a Nurse-
Matron whose sole duty is to look
after the welfare of the student
body. You cannot, estimate in dollars
and cents the advantage this depart-
ment has to do with the business in-
tegrity of your child.

Mrs. Pinson, Nurse-Matron at the

in more than twenty states. ,
Mothers and Fathers:
If you have been denying your son
or daughter the advantages of T. C.

have them away from home influences
you owe it to yourself to make the
acquaintance of Mrs. Pinson. Write
her, or come in to talk with her per-
sonally. After that interview we feel
sure all your fears and worries will
be set at rest, and that your boy or
girl will he in T. C. C. on his way or

County agents in all parts of th
state as well as the officials and Belt
men of the Texas Agricultural College
have been giving Mr. Moore ever}
assistance in this work and all con
cerned are freely predicting that thf
displays at the 1928 State Fair, th<
dates of which are October 6 to 21
will be the most instructive and in
forming ever shown.
‘‘The whole object of the State Fail
and the one aim of the directors is u<
give eveiy aid possible to the upbuild
ing of Texas agriculture and live
stock raising," says Mr. Moore.
“Hence the State Fair should be look-
ed upon as a great broadcasting sta
tion, sending out information oif agri-
cultural and live stock topics to all
the southwest but to all Texas in
'“It spreads this information b}
means of actual demonstrations. The
farmer, for instance, can come here
and see what other farmers have
done. He can talk with the men In
charge and learn how it was done.
Then he can go home, full of infor-
mation and in a position to get the
same or even better results himself.
"Every time a farmer carries home
information and puts that informa-
tion to work in raising more and bet-
ter crops he is helping the whole
state and not merely himself. That
is why many persons believe that the
State Fair of Texas is one of the
greatest influences for the upbuilding;
of the state, that we have

Texas—powerful, rich in land and
resources, and daily gaining in
wealth and influence by reason of
the “Texas for Texans” spirit of its
people—may look forward to a self-

Some day the surplus of drainage

In half a generation Texas has cre-

developed a water borne movement of
some 12 million tons.
In fifty years it has built an in-
land city at Fort Worth and increased
its population 5,000 per cent.
In a short span of time it has cre-

A great man\
perilous who visit
Dallas during the
period of the State
Fair of Texas are
said to be under
the impression that
the big musical
shows given each
year in the Audi-
torium are grand
opera or at least
of a high-brow nature.
Such never has been the case, how-
ever, as those who have been enter-
tained by these shows are well aware.
The productions are musical shows of
the most popular sort, and while the
music and the singing are of the best,
the appeal of the entertainment is
very often found in the fun and the
comedy which abounds throughout.
This was true of “Countess Ma-
ritza,” as all who saw the five come-
dians in that operetta convulse the
audiences through the three acts, will
admit And it is true also as to “The
Desert Song,” the operetta booked for
the next State Fair, Oct. 6 to 21.
Seeing the operettas at the State
Fair is very much like going to New
York city and having a friend take
one to see the best show playing on
Broadway, because the State Fair di-
rectors who seledt the operettas go
to New York every season and after
looking over all the successes, arrange
to bring the whole show, intact to
Texas for the fair period.

the Interest in the
new "combines” in-
every one knows that a combine is the
short name adopted to describe the
combined harvester and threshing ms*
At least three different types ol
these machines will be shown In the
farm machinery section of the State
Fair of Texas, which is to be hold at
Dallas, Oct. 6 to 21.
It is likely that at least one of them
will be shown in operation in connec-
tion with the hitching demonstra-
tions. It requires from ten to twelve
horses to draw one of the combines,
consequently it will be a valuable les-
son for the farmer to learn how to
hiteh sucly large teams so as to get
the best results with one man to drive.
The comb:nes cut the wheat and
thrash it at the same time. All weed
seeds are removed and gathered in a
separate sack to be destroyed instead
of being resown in the field. The
straw, also, is chopped up and spread
on the land back of the combine, to be
plowed under, thereby enriching the
noiL It is said the wheat buyers pre-
fer "combine” wheat to that harvest-
ed with s header and threshed later
with the old style threshing machine.
The demonstrations of the combines
will form an interesting feature of the
1928 State Fair.

NEXT CENSUS FIGURES
ON STATE OF TEXAS
Estimates of the population of the
United States, the States and leading
cities, prepared by the Bureau of the
Census as- of July 1 each year, are
expected to fairly reflect he annual
growths and give some' indication of
what the official enumeration to be
made next year will show. The official
census is taken by the Government
every ten years. It will not be sur-
prising if the total of the United
Sates will go 125,000,000 or better.
Texas in the early census years
applied to the state revealed growtn
in some decades of more than 100
per cent and is expected to closely
approach the 6,000,000 mark in 1930,
or about what the City of New York
is presumed to have today.
In 1850, the first census record for
Texas, the State had 212,592 people,
or fewer than now in Dallas, giving
the State a rank of twenty-fifth in
population. The census of 28 years
ago recorded Texas’ population as
3,048,710, a growth of 36.4 per cent
over 1890. Ten years later the State
had gained 27.8 per cent over 1910.
or a population of 3,896,642, while in
1920 the total was 4,663,228, a gain
of 19,7 per cent over the enumeration
of ten years before.
The average annual rate of growth
for the State since the last official
count has been about 113,000. This is
arrived at by processes employed by
the Census Bureau, of applying an-
nual growths by ratios. The estimate
made by the bureau as of July 1,
1927—which is only an estimate—
gave the state a population of 5,397,
000, or a total increase between the
official enumeration of 1920 and 1927
Thus in 28 years, during which
time the State is deemed to have
found its stride in growth, there has
been an increase of about 2,401,000
people, or more than 80 per cent
If it should work out that Texas in
the next 30 years maintains its pres-
ent stride, the figuring wizards see
that it might within a reasonable j
time outstep some of the leaders to-
day. Prophecies of this character are
Dallas, Houston and San Antonio
based upon the area here that wbuld
easily accomodate a growing popula-
tion, providing the growing popula
tion could find its ventures reasonably
profitable. It does not take irtto ac-
count however, the tendency of pop-
ulation to drift to the cities. This is
more pronounced as rural problems
become severe. In the case of New
York again, something like 69 per
cent of the State’s population prob-
ably will be shown in New York City.
A census race to be the largest
city in Taxas is under way between
San Antonio has long been the larg-
est city in the State. In 1920 the of-
ificial enumeration gave it 161,397 or
ja lead of 2,403 over Dallas. By ap-
plied ration of growth, however, the
Bureau of Census as of July 1, 1927,
gave Dallas 211,600, a lead of 200
over San Antonio.
Based upon the same processes, as
of July 1 this year, Dallas should
show about 220,000 people and Sar.
Antonio about 219,000.
Twenty-eight years ago the Dallas
population was 42,638 and that of
San Antonio 53,321.
