ruary 10, 1913. He was sick for
quite a while with tuberculosis and
we know what this means. While he
bore his afflictions with great pa-
tience, he obeyed the gospel about
32 years ago and lived a conscien-
tious,. Christian life ^until God called
rim home. He was 51 years, 7 months
and 10 days old; was born in Bates
county, Missouri, and came to Texas
1876. Those who knew him best
oved him best. He leaves a wife,,
four boys and one girl, with relatives
and a host of friends to mourn their
loss. The church at Brashear lost
one of its best pillows, the communi-
ty one of its best qitizens. It is said,
but we Should take courage, knowng
the fact that after death there will
come the resurection and when we
get in that bright world to come,
there will be no sickness, sorrow por
parting up there. Is it not worth
honoring and serving Christ, for as
did this good man,. The funeral ser-
vices were held by your humble
servant. The weather was cold and
rainy but the church was filled with
people who was anxious to pay the
last tribute of respect to this good
In Rev. 14:13, John says:
And I heard a voice from Heaven,

dead who die in the Lord from

The need of home owners in the
county is vividly presented in the
federal census reports of Dallas coun-
ty recently given out from Washing-
ton. There is an element of alarm
in the percentage of gain of the ten-
ant farmer over the farm owner.
Many of the most substantial farmers
desert the farms annually for the ad-
vantages and comforts of the city and
the opportunities of the city lure
many of the brightest young men
from the farm. Their places are filled
by the tenant farmer and the hired
hand. Another half century of rural
transition and the farm population
in this county will be a land of peas-
In Dallas county the federal census
reports for 1910 show a total of 5,284
farms. Of this number 2,020 farms
were operated by owners, 3,217 by
tenants and 47 by farmers. The form
of tenancy was divided into four
classes: 2,842 farms were worked on
shares, 250 on a cash basis, 51 on
cash and share basis and 74 no basis
specified. The census for 1900 shows
4,909 farms and ^044 were operated
by owners and 2,865 by tenants and
Taking the entire state thete are
195,863 farms operated by owners,
219,575 operate by tenants and 2,332
by managers. The tenant farmer has
increased at the rate of over 5,000 per
year and the farm owner lesB than
'8,000 per annum.
The study of this subject has arous-
ed many thoughtful citizens who have
the interest of Texas at heart and the
Texas Farm Life Commission was
organized to suggest a solution for
the problem as relates to tbe state as
a whole The difficulties of Dallas
county are peculiar and the progress-
ive citizens of the county are. urged
to organize add solve them in so far
as local action can meet the situation.
“There are many difficulties that
stand in the way of the tenant farmer
becoming a land owner,” says an arti-
cle from the Texas Commercial Sec-
retaries and Business Men’s associa-
tion, “which require co-operative ac-
tion to surmount. The rate of inter-
est is too high; the method of mark-
eting too uncertain and our economic
system has many other defects which
must be corrected. Likewise if we are

HOW TO BEST THE MAIL ORDER
The Texas papers are almost a
unit in fighting the mail order houses.
They are not so united however, in
fighting the outsider to do all the ad-
vertising. When , the home man tells
his people through the columns of
his paper what he has, he generally
gets results, as is evidenced by the
following, clipped from the Denton
Record and Chronicle.
“In one East Texas town, somewhat
of a size with Denton, one man kept
standing In hjs regular advertise-
ment that he would duplicate the of-
fer of any mail order house. ‘Brng in
your catalog,’ he said, ’and we’ll do
as well as any mail order concern,
and give you the advantage of seeing
what you buy before you buy it.’ Tbe
result is there is almost no mail or-
der business out of that town. We’ve
often noticed that the men who cry
the loudest against the mall order
houses are those who use the least
space in letting the general public
know what they have to sell, and the
prices at which they selL”—Houston

THE 8AFE SIDE.
It is said that a visiting brother
was once invited by the pastor of a
fashionable church to preach for him.
Just before the service began, the
pastor whispered to the visitor:
“Don’t say anything on temperance
today, for one of my wealthiest mem-
bers is a wholesale grocer and deals
in wines. I see he is hero with us
this morning.” Soon the pastor,
made another request: “Please don’t
dwell on Sabbath desecration. One
of our deacons is a steamboat captain,
and during the season he runs his
boat on Sundays.” “Well,” scid the
visitor, “what will I be safe in preach-
ing about?” “Let me see,” replied the
pastor, as his eye glanced up and
down the church and galleries.”
“Bang away at the Mormons, for
don’t see one in the audience.”-

News is a farmer and a farm demon-
stratorstrator: One o this many
hobbies is telling the farmer to plant
peanuts. He cinches his argument
in behalf of this lowly legume by
printing a letter from an Oklahoma
farmer telling how he hold a farm
for more than It was worth to anoth-
er farmer who paid less than it was
worth. Here is how it was done.
Three years ago I sold an 80-acre
farm valued at $2,000; the buyer to

years, giving me the nuts and hay

eted two crops which netted me $1,-

marketed yet and still have the 1913
crop to come.

it costs to plant and cultivate 30 acres
of peanuts, but we know it is much
