Constant Improvement Has Placed Us In The Lead
WORK OF ERECTING WALLS FOR
ICE PLANT TO BEGIN
The work of excavating for the
foundation of the big new ice plant
of the East Texas Public Service
Company, adjoining the present plant
has already been completed, and the
pouring of the concrete for the foun-
dation will begin Monday morning.
This plant, when completed, will
be a considerable asset to the citv.
as it will house an ice plant sufficient
to produc all the ice needed by Mt.
Pleasant and all the neighboring
communities. It will more than treble
the present capacity of the plant at
this place, and will also allow plenty
of room for storage.
A valuable feature of the new ad-
dition will be the arrangement for
the curing of meat for the farmers
of the county. A special room will
be erected for this purpose, and will
be of great benefit to raisers of meat
during such seasons as the weather

CHAMPIONSHIP BASKET BALL
GAMES HAVE LARGE
! There was an unusually large num-
1 ber of people in town Saturday, and
' a majority of them came to witness
the basketball games for the cham-
! pionship of Titus county. An im-
I mense throng of interested spectators
I gathered at the school grounds to wit-
i ness the contests, which began at 10
I The first game was between Green
1 Hill and Argo, and it was a lively at-
1 fair which was won by Green Hill by
a margin of six points, the score be-
ing Green Hill 30 and Argo 24.
J The second game was not quite so
close as the first, and was between
Mt. Pleasant and Winfield, but it was
close enough to give plenty of ex-
citement. The score in this game was
17 to 12.
In the afternoon Green Hill aim
Mt. Pleasant met for the champion-
ship game, and it was a real game
These two teams were very evenly
matched, and furnished a number of
thrills. -The score was 30 to 28 in
favor of the Green Hill team, which
was awarded the championship and

STRONGER THAN EVER
A professor of Wesleyan'universi-
ty has figured it out that there are
10,000,000 more morons in the United
States, not to mention the 25,000,000
If what he says is correct, there
are some 35,000,000 morons and
dullards combined, or about one-third
of the total population of the coun-
N'ow we would hate to say that the
Wesleyan professor is wrong.
But, much as we would hate to say
that, we would hate still more to
have to say that he is right.
Because, for one thing, if he is
right, we’re a nation to be afraid of ,
Try and imagine a nation with
one-third of its population crazy.
Yet that’s what the Wesleyan pro-
fessor tries to make us believe.
However, proof of the fact that he
may be right, or at least right in
part, is found by the fact that unan-
imous consent acknowledges that the
dullards and morans run the govern-
So the minority, if as strong as the
professor says, is stronger than ever.
And the government is a govern-
ment of minority misrule!
Believe the professor or not, the
result is the same.—Ex.
IMPORTANT SESSION WHEN EV-
ERYBODY SHOULD BE
The most important meeting of the
Chamber of Commerce for this year
is to be held at the City Hall Monday
night, and everybody interested in a '
movement that is of vital interest to
the entire county should make it a
point to attend.
The final report of the agricultural
committee will be presented to those j
who are to make the tour of the
county, and all arrangements and de-
tails will be explained.
The officers and directors ask that
everybody who can make a talk and
who are interested in helping the va- j
rious communities of the county to
carry out their programs for the bet-
terment of the agricultural interests (

The weather man evidently has had
his products mixed up lately, as this
county has been getting the wrong
variety for February.
Although there have been several
warm days lately, Saturday was al-
most hot, and the local ice office had
numerous calls from residences all
over town for ice for household use.
On account of the hot weather ex-
pressions of fear that the fruit crop
will bo materially damaged are heard
on every side, because the buds are
beginning to swell, and a sudden cold
snap might prove disastrous.
A number of farmers say that a
rain is needed at this time, as the
ground is getting dry. This is usu-
ally the wet season of the year.

day from a two-week’s visit with her

TO STATE AID SCHOOLS
$10,130 has been granted to the ru-
ral schools of Titus county. There is
one condition that applies to all the
schools alike, that is, that the sur-
plus books on hand as reported to
the State Aid Inspector, be sent to
the county depository at once. State
aid will be withheld until this condi-
tion is met. The State department
is calling on the County Superintend-
ent for a report of the surplus books
sent in but he cannot make this re-
port unless these books are sent in,
neither esn the State Aid schools se-
cure conditional aid granted until this
is done. It devolves upon the t?ach-
cic- and trustees of these schools to
send such books into this office at
once. F. T. WARD,
