GAME WARDEN NABS FISHER-
MEN FOR CATCHING BASS
Belton, March 27.—Spring time
fishermen in Belton were hit hard to-
day when the strong arm of the law
in the personage of a deputy game
and fish warden reached out and
“nabbed” several who were fishing for
black bass in the Nolan creek. “They
were all caught with the goods,” the
deputy declared and after obtaining
evidence he came to the justice court
and filed charges.
Other charges will also be filed if
the practice of fishing for bass in any
of the streams this time of the year
is continued, officials state.

Chills, & Stomach Trouble
TV/f R. N. A. SMITH, of
JLyJL Shaw, Miss., says
he can’t remember
beiijg without Thedford’s
Black-Draught liver med-
icine since he and Mrs.
Smith began keeping
house, many years ago.
“When we have chills,”
says Mr. Smith, “Black-
Draught is what we use
and we find it just splen-
did. I had a bad case of
stomach trouble. I couldn’t
eat enough and was very
weak. Everything I ate
hurt me, formed gas and I
spit up my food. I would
feel stupid or staggery. I
didn’t feel like doing any
work. I knew what Black-
Draught had done in colds
and I began taking small
doses. I certainly got re-
lief. It did me lots of good.
“When I go to town, I
look first to see how near
out of Black-Draught, we
are, and then get more.

Strings are a good thing, but will
not answer for a backbone, in this
day and time, and in searching
through the pages of history of men
Avho have lived and wrought well in
their time and age, we find that
strings were not used then for back-
bones. Backbones are necessary and
useful, and it is a good thing for
them to be pliable, flexible and easi-
ly controlled, but not to such an extent
that it cannot stand alone nor stand
against a contention where justice
and uprightness are being weighed.
A weakling and a sycophant has no
place in the world which was created
by God, and peopled with human be-
ings to carry on the work set in or
der by Him, therefore it takes a back
bone, and- not a string, to meet the
conflicts that rise up and confront the
masses every day. It is an easy mat-
ter to drift with the tide and do as
other folks do, just because some have
made it a custom to do certain things
But if you propose to live a life that
counts, you cannot afford to drift
with the tide and be led by every wind
and wave that rises and falls. There-
fore, again, it takes backbone.
It seems that just because custom
has set an example, all must follow
it, or be called old-timey or “peculiar.”
There is no excuse for anyone to say
that they do not know which is the
right road; there is too much litera
ture on every subject under the sun
for anyone to be ignorant upon any
subject, but it will take the will-pow-
er, or backbone, to apply one’s mind
and intellect and find the solution to
the problem confronting one. Just
because one does not know all there
is to be learned, does not preclude one
from taking a stand upon any aues
tion and expressing themselves as to
Avhat they believe is right.. It takes
a backbone, and not a string, to stand
four-square and meet the issues of

SI^CLAHi IS INDICTED
Washington, Mgi’ch 31.—Harry F.
Sinclair, lessee of Teapot, Dome, Avas
indicted by a federal grand jury here
today on contempt charges growing
out of his refusal to testify before
the senate oil committee.
The indictment was in 10 counts
each referring to a specific question
asked the oil operator, Avhen he was
last before the committee. The grand
jurors held that these questions, all
of which Sinclair refused to ansAver
Avere “pertinent to the matters and
questions then under inquiry before
the said committee.”
The action was the first grand
jury move to develop from the oil
inquiry and is expected eventually
to result in a Supreme Court ruling
on the broad question of the author-
ity of congress to summon and ques-
tion witnesses in investigations like
those noAV in progress. This authori-
ty Sinclair has questioned.
Sinclair is not noAv in Washington,
but his attorneys have indicated that
he probably would come to the capi-
tal without compulsion, to answer to
the charges against him.
Health of our community is a great
deal better noAv, than last week, some

couple a long and happy married life.
