^Charley Cook will be the man-
ager of a business which the
Conallv people will open at Val-
ley Mills in the near future Mr.
Cook has only been with this firm
a year at Clifton but they have
discovered his worthiness.
Jodie Bennett is in ChP
* cinnati taking a course in the
Conservatory of Music.' The at*
tainments of this young lady in
the music line are already such
as to have gained for her the ad-
miration of all Stephenville, and
now it will not l>e long before her
fame will extend lwyond the con
fines of her native town.
-Summer, with its accustomed
interruptions to church life in
town, having now passed, the
jmstors and Sunday school super-
intendents are justified in indulg-
ing the* hope that all members of
the congregations will now be
seen in their places at the regu-
lar services. Suppose we every-
one make the start next Sunday
morning and allow naught but
sickness or absence to keep us
out of the services throughout
Math stone and wife of Salem
have the sympathy of many
friends in the loss they have sus-
tained by the death of their baby
child, little Virgil, age seven
years.. 1 le passed away Monday
afternoon of last week, after a
very severe illness of several
days. Mrs. J. II. Ward who was
with the child all along during
his sickness, says she never knew
a sweeter or more patient little
liss Lucy Moore of this city,
was last Saturday honored by
the teachers of McLennan coun-
ty by being elected president of
he teachers institute, during the
regular sitting of that body at
Waco. Miss Moore has lieen sup-
erintendent of the public school
at l.urena the past several years.
This is the first instance we know
of in which a lady teacher has
thus been honored and is a splen-
did testimonial to Miss Moore’s )
great ability. ^
A. G. Hawkins, the editors
brother, was here from Dublin
Monday attending county court,
as a witness. He will move from
Dublin to Waco this week, having
resigned as agent of the Texas
Central to resume his run on
that road as passenger conductor.
Ill health caused him to quit his
regular work about 18 months
ago, but he feels so much im-
proved, and so much prefers the
train service to s*a ion life, he
decided to begin pulling the bell
cord again. ——
Commissioner Moore says about
October 21 instead of the first, is
the date they should get through
public square. When he began
the job he figured on nine weeks
to complete it and says the nine
weeks will not expire until that
date. The Empire had under-
stood that it was to be finished
by Octolier 1 and so stated last
week. But the work is being
done so thoroughly, according to
our way of viewing it, nine weeks
will really lie quick time in which
to perfect it.

ig to say 071 integrity.
Integrity of purpose and of honor is just as applicable to clothes as to character. For many years we
have adheared unswervingly to the principle, that integrity of purpose and honor would eventually
build up a wide and steadfast trade. That policy won out,—our present host of friends prove it.
Before we started in the clothing business to accomodate the high class trade in and -around Step-
henville. we needed a clothing manufaturer who believed in our policy of integrity—AND LIVED UP
TO IT. In this way and in no other could we carry out our ideas. So we examined into the policies
of every clothing manufacturer known, and chose without hesitation Hart Shaffner & Marx Clothes.
Those who wear them prove our statements and the good quality of the clothes we sell.
Our new clothing for fall is arriving daily. Come early, get your pick and prove them to your own
