| C. D. Byrd, one of the irriga-
! tion farmers from the Bend, was
| here a day or two of this week.
| He planted his land principally
! to onions and sweet potatoes and
| reports that, from 18 acres in
onions he will secure about 9000
bushels, and from 25 acres in po-
tatoes he will realize about 7500
bushels. The price of qnions is
lower than for some time and the
farmers are only realizing about
80 cents per bushel, but the sweet
potatoes go readily at from SI.00
to SI. 10 per bushel. Mr. Byrd
markets the larger part of these
crops abroad, the price mentioned
being the net price loaded on the
cars at his nearest point.
An article from the Houston
Chronicle on the “Concerted
Movement for Good Roads” is
endorsed in part by The Leader,
but is published in full, because
of the splendid deductions in the
argument as to cost of good roads
to those who do not have them.
Lampasas county has the roads
without the bond issue, and this
good work will continue and the
roads will be constantly improved
by the direct tax, and with-
out putting a debt upon the com-
ing generation. Let all the peo-
ple of Texas become interested
i in good roads, and where neces-
sary bonds may be issued, but
with good management by the
courts, bonds are not a neces-

T. E. Brazeiton, industrial
agent of the Santa Fe, spent a
day here looking after business
interests of the company. He
was much impressed with Lam-
pasas as-a business point and as
a resort, and expects to see it
grow in respect to both. In the
course of conversation it devel-
oped that Mr. Brazeiton and the
editor of The Leader were born
and raised in adjoining counties
oh the line of Tennessee and Ala-
bama, and they had many ac-
quaintances In common among
the people along the Tennessee
valley, as well as like knowledge
of the streams, mountains, hills
and valleys. It was pleasant to
meet him, and The Leader is as-
sured he will always be ready to
help Lampasas in any way pos-
Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Litton ar-
rived Tuesday night from New
Mexico. Mrs. Litton went out
there about six weeks ago hop-
ing that the climate would bene-
fit her health, but found the alti-
tude was too high. Mr. Litton
went out there about ten days
ago and enjoyed his trip very
much. He brought home with
him a bear’s skin and the head,
horns and skin of a blacktail
deer. He said one bear yielded
30 gallons of oil. There had re-
cently been an abundance of rain
there and crops of Irish potatoes,
beets, beans, watermelons, pump-
kins, kaffir corn and milo maize
were good—the melons were the
sweetest he ever tasted. During
the past three years of drought
the cattle and sheep had nearly
all been taken out of the country.
He saw oats growing out of the
stubble of this year’s crop and
promising a large yield.
Mrs. Ellen,Rogers, of Lometa,
is here to vi^ither daughter, Mrs.
floods a£ Safi Angelo.
San Angelo, Tex., Aug. 28—It
is still raining here, and -the in-
dications are that the total down-
pour of the past few days will
exceed eight inches.
The streams are out of banks
and the Cunningham and Chris-
toval dams ha^e given away.
There has been more rain in
this section than for many years,
and it has fallen in a way for the
ground to absorb to the utmost.
Eastward along the line of the
Santa Fe, there have been good
rains as far as Lampasas, groW?
ing lighter all the way. At
Brownwood the Bayou is out of
banks and the Colorado has a
big rise. ' ^
Rules of the Road.
The rules of the road in meet-
ing and passing are almost as old
as the hills, but there are some
people who have never learned
them and possibly never will.
Here they are in concrete form.
In meeting go, to the RIGHT.
In parsing go to the LEFT.
This is the day of rapid travel,
and consequent danger, but there
has been and should be no
change of the above rules. Try
to remember these rules and
practice them whether you drive
a bicycle, motorcycle, automo-
bile, stearhship, airship, sailboat
buggy, hack, horseback, or go
Dies at 111 Years of Age.
Waco, Tex., Aug. 26.—James
Whitehead, born on the North
Sea July 26, 1800, died here to-
day. He was 111 years and one
month old, and was in remark-
ably good health up to a short
time before his death. He wfis a
seaman until he reached the age
of sixty-one years, being an En-
glish subject. He is survived by
a brother in England.
Storm on Atlantic Coast.
Charleston, S. C., Aug. 29.—
Eleven liv,es were lost and a score
or more persons wer'e injured in
Charleston county as a result of
the hurricane which swept this
section of coast Sunday night
and Monday morning.
• The property loss is estimated
at least a million dollars. Ship-
ping suffered severely. Scores of
launches are adrift.
The work of clearing away the
debris from the streets began to-
day. Train service is approach-
In the low lying section, there
is much suffering and the danger
of sickness is considered great.
Heavy rains last night added to"
The Red Cross has volunteered
Tom Green county .voted on
the local option question Tues-
day, going wet by a majority of
66. In the state wide election
that county gave a pro majority
of 320. This result demonstrates
the truth of the old adage that
it is not safe to bet on the result
of an election. A change of 386
votes in a little more than 30
days is a marvelous record.
To those who were so kind dur-
ing the illness and death of our
beloved daughter and sister, we
desire to express our most heart-
felt thanks. The many kind-
nesses shown will always be re-
membered. Also to the faithful
physician who did all that could
be done. May the Cod who is
over all abundantly reward you.
Mrs. J. L. Schlomach, son and
Mrs. Harry Holton and child,
of Houston, who have "been vis-
iting Mrs. C. Holton here for the
past ten days, have gone home.
