Questions of the Hour: Who did you vote for?
Did you lose your vote? Did you lose that hat?
The results of Tuesdays elections was no sur-
prise to us. The important consideration is that
we are all just as good friends now as we ever
were. Friendship in Pecos County is above poli-
The life of the average man is 49 years, while
that of the average woman is 53—another reason
for the woman to get the last word. Nashville
The San Angelo Fair, which closed its gates
last Saturday, was an era of joy, congeniality, en-
tertainment and full to overflowing with industrial,
commercial and social resciprosity.
Another election is over and those who did not
have poll tax receipts, were sorry they were with-
out them. Let’s get around to that poll tax pay-
ment for next year, just as soon as possible.
THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION
tLast Tuseday was the day on which the people
of the United States were to place the seal of ap-
proval upon the administration of the nation’s af-
fairs by a Democratic President and Congress, or
express disapproval of the policies which have re-
sulted in peace and prosperity for a great world
The Pioneer is happy to be able to announce
the election resulted in favor of Democracy. The
re-election of President Wilson places the seal of ap-
proval upon the Democratic President and his ad-
ministrrtion of the nation’s affairs.
President Wilson personally will be happy to
abide the result. He repeatedly has said that he
did not wish the office of President for the
honor and glory there may be therein, and has
repeatedly annonneed that he would cheerfuly
bear the burdens of the office, if they were again
placed upon his shoulders.
Now, that the people have again wisely chosen
Mr. Wilson as their President, his slogan of “Peace
with Honor’’ has been vindicated and there can be
no doubt but that prosperity will continue to reign,
if President Wilson can possibly keep our nation
off of the dangerous shoals that have for the past
four years threatened her on every hand.
Have you begun saving for Christmas? The
Yuletide is only a little over six weeks otL Better
salt down a few dollars now of the year’s earnings,
or you won’t be able to enjoy the event as much
as you should.
If you think Fort Stockton a good town, and
doubtless you do, you will help it to be better by
buying everything at home that you possibly can.
If you can’t get the goods, the service, the
work done promptly at home, then you are
justified in sending off for it. But where things
are anywhere near equal, you should give the home
institution preference. That is the way to build
up your town and make it the best in the world.
A HINT TO TEXAS
The state of Kansas has undertaken a new
problem. The state legislature has appropriated a
quarter of a million dollars to establish a school
textbook plant, and the state proposes to enter up-
on their publication. Books will be distributed at
a profit sufficient to cover depreciation, replace-
ment and interest of 4 per cent, on the investment.
Kansas intends or expects to save its citizens the
big profits made by the private book contracts.
Education is compulsory and the school textbook is
created by law. The Kansas enterprise deserves
the attention of all. It should mean the taking of
the schools out of politics in a large measure, and
that taxpayers will not be forced to submit to ex-
ploitation or private gains.— Marshall Messenger.

FOLKS NEED A LOT OF LOVING
By Stickland Gillilan
“Folks need a lot of loving in the morning,
The day is all before with cares beset—
The cares we know and those that give no
For love is God’s own antidote for fret.
“Folks need a heap of loving at the noontime,
In the battle lull, the moment snatched
from strife —
Half way between the waking and the croon
While bickering and worriment are rife.
“Folks hunger so for loving at the night time
When wearily they take them home to
At slumber song and turning-out-tne-light
Of all the times for loving that’s the best!
“Folks want a lot of loving every minute —
The sympathy of others and their smile !
Till life’s end from the moment they begin it,
Folks need a lot of loving all the while.”
— Ladies’ Home Journal.
