Pictured center is W. S. “Shilo” Scrivenor as he appeared with T.
Binford, Harris county sheriff, and Percy Heard, Houston chief of
police, after his capture in Des' Moines, Iowa. Scrivenor was brought

the murder of Austin Preston, prominent Victoria, Texas, cattleman,
whose murder in a Hot Springs, Ark., hotel has been a mystery for
YOUR BUSINESS MESSAGE
A certain Palestine merchant, an-
xious to do some effective newspaper
advertising, but who seems to think
he does not know how, is a good sales-
man, making a success of his person-
al efforts, selling most effectively
across the counter.
In discussing this with the writer
he said he did not know how to write
an advertisement. He was reminded
he knew, how to make an attractive
sales talk to the individual who faced
him. Well the newspaper message
needs to be just that sort of thing—
a convincing talk on the goods he is
trying to sell. And really it is not a

which you should try when
troubled with constipation,
or biliousness. Mr. H. H.

get constipated, I feel dull

I found this came from con-

That is why I began using

This man was told he should adver- ^

The right advertising media should j
be chosen with care. Entirely too

If disposed to do so, an advertiser

advertising as an act of charity, or j
as a donation. Do not he an easy 1
mark, because advertising is a serious
business concern. ,

I When they quit advertising, then you

A false economy has caused men to

If you have a fair job and remnuer-
ation is steady, be thankful.
Perhaps you do have to work harder
to earn it these days.
Seme of the work which used to be
done by others may have been added
to your job, but what of it?
In some instances, it may be true
that men are imposed upon in the
name of present depression, and com-
pelled to do more than their share.
Notwithstanding, you should still
consider yourself lucky to have work.
I housands of men more capable
than you would be pleased to accept
your place and would consider them-
selves lucky to have such a job.
It is true that every man should be
provided with the opportunity to work
for a living and they should not be
required to do more than a fair
amount of work in order to earn it.
But exceptional conditions have
made this impossible.
Output must be curtailed, if it can’t
be sold, with decrease in labor re-
quired, hence the difficulty in find-

work of any kind should rejoice.
He should put forth his best efforts
to be worthy of the place, and do it
Notice to Delinquent Tax Payers of Ml
Pleasant Independent School District}
The last Legislature passed a special
law releasing all interest and penalties on
your school tax if paid by Jan. 31, 1932.
You can make quite a saving by paying
your delinquent tax by that date. We
urge you to take advantage of this special
offer. But, if not paid on or before Jan. 31,
1932, suit will be filed immediately and at-
torney’s fees and other court costs, penalty
and interest will be added.

Almost twice as much cotton was
°'inned in Bowie County to Decem-
ber 13, this year, as was ginned to
the same date last year. The price,
of course, was about half the price
prevailing last year, but the crop cost
■Uich less to produce. Despite the
low price this year, therefore, large
numbers of farmers actually made
mure money on their 1931 cotton than
j they did on their 1930 cotton. In ad-
dition, they raised ample supplies of
! food and feed this year as against
practically nothing of those items last
year. From every point of view, ag-
ricultural conditions here are better
than in 1931, although admittedly
there is still plenty of room for im-
provement. A program of farming
j for a living of the farm, with feed
, and food, and poultry and lairy pro-
' ducts sufficient for home eonsump-
! tion, should be the goal of every
1 farmer—then some cotton for a cash
j crop.—Texarkana Gazette.
