LOVING LAND & LOAN COMPANY
Tba American home, la tin throne and
• fountain head of fnatnon and the dee-
tinlem of the human race must depend
* upon the wisdom of the flrealde. Politi-
cians may make party platform*; le»-
lelaturee may paea laws; but the fun-
dameatal question* of public Impor-
tance must be finally eettled by the
man of toil aa he quietly *lt* by the
fireside after the day** work la oyer.
The Struggle for Power.
The outstanding ambition of the hu-
man race- tsday la power. Flrtfendera,
with the Inventive genius of an Edison.
' are seeking to associate capital In ouch
S way an to multiply power. Labor, with
the mighty trend of a nation marshal-
ing Its army, la seeking to arrange Its V
farces so as to increase power. The
farmer, with the patient and honest en-
deavor typical of hie occupation. Is
seeking by organised methods to gain
power. Each la endeavoring to combine
two or more economic units ef their
eldbs in such a way aa to tnavaee the
power of both. The purposes are laud-
able, but the methods each must em-
ploy present problems In which all hu- ;
inanity Is involved and they must be
finally eettled at the fireside.
f * The Problem* Upon U».
We are well into these problems with
capital in the foreground. Numerous
solutions have been suggested, hut the
most primitive one to that of prohib-
iting by law the extension and multi-
plication of power through organised
r effort. This solution Is manifestly im-
/ practicable. No on* would for a mo-
ment tolerate a law that would prevent
the Invention or use of aa appliance
which would multiply the power of
steam or any other potential energy,
because pirchance It might also in-
crease tht danger—In growth the ele-
ment of danger always Increases at the
earns ratio as other component parts.
To destroy or limit power Is to etrike
down progress and return to the dark
ages, sad Is an acknowledgment of our
Incapacity to copa kith human affair*!
Ws must quickly recede from this po-
sition or peas rapidly on to government
To acquire the highest degree of, ef *
1 net«mey in ctvtMsatlon, we must de*
^ velop every pound o' minify \ird power
- for usefulness there la to all things
and multiply this power as‘many times
as humsa ingenuity can devise, minim-
I*taw, as far as ptssMUe. the element
„ of danger wtthsnt weakening the
'iMMnnpa of power.
Tba problems in the industrial hurt-
pop today are gtgantle and their soiu-
I tip awaits the patriotic and careful

The Steam Engine
The reepr* of cffTllsatlmf Is accurate-
ly written* In the program of the steam
engine. The use of steam has enlarged
the purposes of the human «raca, built
up civilisation and developed mankind.
Of all the potential energies. It Is the
moot useful and It renders a service to
every living creature.
The steam engine has been in more
political brawls than any other force
in nature and the 'politicians have been
trying title with the owners ever since
It became a factor In transportation.
This mighty fores of nature has often
been handicapped by having boards
and commissions placed over it who
have neither knowledge or experience
In the business and free railroads have
beoome as popular a campaign lasud
as fires trade,
It was the discovery of Are that
raised man into the rulershlp of the
world and gave civilisation Its most
useful element in progress It melts the
mineral rock, turns, the wheels of com-
merce, warms the human race and
broadens tbs horieon of human en-
Geologists tell us that Texas Is one
of the latest additions to this western
hemisphere, sad the Ruler of the Unt-
vetsv, in creating Texas, gave us an
abundant supply of everything on hand
and was especially generous with us
Ws have bee*' eupplled with a vari-
ety and an abundance of fuel. Wa have
wood, coal, oil and gas In commercial
quantities and after supplying home
consumption, ship large quantities
throughout the United States.
. Railroad mileage is tns yard stick of
progress. We have In Texas 14.000
miles of railroad and rank first of all
states In tae Union In mileage In
mllse per area, we rank fortieth, having
l.ll miles of railroad per 100 square
miles of territory. In mileage per popu-
lation. we rank nineteenth, having IS.4S
miles of railroad per 10,000 people
Thf Comparative test of railroad fa-
culties Is In miles per area. If wa
had the mileage per arm that the state
of Illinois has we would have 65.644
miles; that Indiana has 14.000 miles
and that Iowa has 41.000 miles Ws
hare only 14.000 miles
According to the last interstate com-
merce commission report,, compiled
June SO, loot, we constructed tT* miles
during the previous year and ranked
fourth In the list of states In ths Union
in construction during the year, we
are more In need of railroad construc-
tion than any other state In the Union.
The railroad development of Texas
has not kept pace with the development
of other lines ef tnduatry. Our railroad
mileage during the past tan years has
Increased Of per cent; the value ok
manufactured products has increased
tjlg hearts as |Vy Mi Uy ths firs
want of railroad facilities.
Texas Is the most Important field In
railroad construction of any state In
the Union. According to the 1914
comptroller's report, ws 'havei forty-
seven counties In Texas without tail-
roe d facilities and we have approxi-
mately 40,000,444 acres of territory that
Is a,distance sf ten miles and over
from a railroad,
Our coal fields have never been fully,
explored; government geologists have
examined a portion of our territory and
report a deposit of tl.000,000,000 tone,
of which 1,000.000.004 Is bituminous and
tt.000,000.000 lignite. Ws mined last
year l.tOB.STI tons and employed 4.400
laborers In the mines. The coal taken
from the mines was valued at 62.419.-
4S1; to get all tha coal out of the
ground at tha present rate of mining
would require 17.000 years.
It Is estimated that four and a half
tons of coal ueed in making steam will
produde on# horse power one year ten
hours per day. The latent foroes we
hava stored beneath the ground sur-
pass human comprehension.
Texas oil !Hum|Ttates ths national
fireside, lubricates ths wheels of com-
merce and runs our factories. We have
9144,444,444 invested In tbe oH Industry
in Tsxas snd we have taken 15,000,000
barrels of petroleum from the ground.
W« have 1,260 miles of pipe line and oil
from Oklahoma field* is brought to

ing to the people and If making an ef-
fort to carry tha results of valuable
experiments to the people through
