rr, November first a fine seasonable
'*■’ rain fell here falling slowly so the
ground is fairly saturated with mois-
ture. Prospect for grain and gar-
dens are promising. Looking out over
4l the green fields woods and prairies
one imagines spring is still lapping
in the lap of winter. Quite a cool
spell after the rain but the sun ha?
shown out and we are anxious to see
pretty weather warm weather so our
gardens will grow off and furnish the
table with nice fall vegetables. Most
of the farmers are through planting
grain but there still lingers in the field
a remnant of cotton—most of the
farmers don’t care whether it’s ever
picked or not.
Mrs. Carroll and little daughter
also Mrs. Agnes Batterson of Nix
visited in- the home of L. W. McCrea
Mr. and Mrs. Tom Seale of Lampas-
as visited their daughter, Mrs. Bud
Miss Emma Gaedlce, who has .been
visiting her sister, Miss Annie of Ft.
Worth, has returned home.
Remember, we are expecting our
new pastor here to preach third Sun-
day in this month. Hope none will
have Sunday crutch but will try lay
it aside and all turn out and welcome
the new pastor.
The farmers have been very busy
picking cotton and sowing grain, but
will be out of the fields for several
days, as we have had a fine rain.
Health of our community is good
with the exception of a few colds.
Dr. D. A. Watson and wife of Lam-
pasas visited in the home of his neph-
ew, Ed Watson, last Sunday.
Judge O. B. Zimmerman and family

The circuit is just what it has been

Kempner Circuit. The pastor will
live in Kempner and I m not the pas-

many changes. This one was a great
tear-up among pastors, presiding el-
Rev. Sloan is the pastor of Kemp-
ner circuit. I am sure he is a worthy
man, and beg that the entire member-
ship give him their hearty support.
I am back in Lampasas without
work. I am not a member of the
conference but have served as supply
six years in West Texas Conference.
This year there were so many con-
ference members that there was not
a suitable place left for me.
I may take a work later or. Any
way, we must leave Lampasas soon.
I have some financial obligations here
unmet. I am trying to borrow the
money to meet them. If I can’t, I
will have to go anyway, but want
everybody to know that these obliga-
tions will be met as early as possi-
ble. My obligations never go out of
Whether a Methodist pastor’s sal-
ary is paid or not, going to confer-
ence settles it; but going to confer-
ence does not settle any of his obli-
gations. Want to thank Bro. R. S.
Mills for settling my account of
$26.15 at Fox & Mills Hardware Store.
Also wish to thank Judge Abney for
a $10.00 check some time ago.
We will doubtless be in Lampasas
Hope to see and speak to my friends
between now and then. •
I haven’t words to fully express my
appreciation of The Leader’s kind-
ness in publishing all my articles. I
hope all my friends, if not already
will become subscribers of this good
county paper. J. G. WALKER.
CHANGE OF VENUE SOUGHT
IN J. FRANK NORRIS TRIAL
Fort Worth, Texas, Nov. 2.—The
religious and political controversy
revolving about Dr. J. Frank Norris,
Baptist pastor, which culminated on
July 17, last, in the killing of D. E.
Chipps, Fort Worth lumberman, in
the study of Norris’ church, was
brought into criminal district court
here today as the fundamentalist
minister’s trial got under way.
After a day of legal jockeying, in
which an application by the defense
for change of venue played the lead-
ing part, the court late in the day
began to hear testimony on Norris’
charge that he would be unable to
obtain a fair and impartial trial be-
cause of prejudices existing against
Charges that city officials of Fort 1
Worth, members of the Knights of .
Columbus, and .Roman Catholics in j
general have entered a “combination” !
to prosecute Dr. J. Frank Norris were j
made when Norris’ trial on a charge j
of murdering Dexter E. Chipps, Fort;
Worth lumberman, was called in j
Judge Hosey’s court here today.
Dr. Norris and his wife listened in- j
tently to the reading of the applica-
tion, which set forth that Norris’ num-
erous pulpit battles had made many
enemies who were bent on obtaining
his conviction in the present trial.
During the recess, the defense sub-
poenaed 31 witnesses to testify on the I
application for change of venue. j
OLD MATURED TURKEYS
NEEDED FOR THANKSGIVING
Dallas, Texas, Novw 2.—Turkey
dealers throughout the State, through
the medium of the Texas Carlot Ship-
pers’ Association, are advising farm-
ers to market only well-matured tur-
keys for Thanksgiving, and to hold
back and feed immature and under-
weight birds for the Christmas and
holiday markets. In a statement is-
sued Monday, the association declared
the immature turkeys have low value
and tend to demoralize the market.
“Inasmuch as hen turkeys mature
earlier than turkey cocks, it is advis-
able to sell hen turkeys for the
Thanksgiving trade, which, with the
most mature of the gobblers, will be
enough to supply the trade this
month,” the statement said. Dealers
this year are buying and selling tur-
keys on a closely guarded basis, much
more so than heretofore, it was ex-

JOHN LEWELLEN TO
HAVE FOURTH TRIAL
Temple, Texas, Nov. 3.—The fourth
trial of John Lewellen, charged with
the murder of John Zurovec of Tem-
ple, will be heard at the District
Court at Belton exactly six years to a
day following the shooting on Nov. 29,
1921. Zurovec was proprietor of a
lunch stand in Temple and it was
there that he was killed. Lewellen
was .given ninety-nine years by the
Bell county jury. His second trial was
heard in Williamson county, as ,was
his third, and the higher court has
We seek perfection, but we seek in
vain. Apparently there is none per-

country, it seems, drank, gambled,
cussed, flirted and kept his eye peeled
for the main chance.

prudence, was the father of a son born
out of wedlock.

The outbreak in Oklahoma is wide-
spread and much danger lies in traris-
j portation of swine from there into
Texas, Dr. Williams declared. He
also said there is a shortage of serum
in this State.
Oklahomans, he said, are violating
the State quarantine regulations by
bringing hogs into the State without
proper notification and certificates,
“and the farmers who buy stock from
them are equally guilty.”
The veterinarian says the West
Texas Chamber of Commerce and cat-
tle associations will support preposed
measures at the next Legislature to
strengthen quarantine regulations.

light frost was visible on the roofs of
the houses. Owing to the ground be-

ing of the State Board of Conrtol

the policy of the board in the future
to make all purchases for the institu-
