DEMOCRATIC CLUBS BEING
Dallas, Texas, April 4.—“All indi-
cations point to an overwhelming en-
dorsement of the Democratic Admin-
istration on May first,” said Clyde A.
Sweeton, chairman and campaign
manager of the Democratic Adminis-
tration Executive Committee.
“We now have the State practically
organized by districts, counties and
precincts; Democratic clubs are being
formed daily in all sections of the
State; speakers will be on the stump
discussing the issues of the campaign
from now until convention day. Men,
busy men, in every walk of life are
volunteering their services for the
preservation of the party.
“The laborer, the ranchman, the
farmer, the business man, the banker,
and the professional men are all uni-
ted in the opinion that the accom-
plishments of the National Adminis-
tration should be endorsed and not re-
pudiated. They realize that we are in
the midst of the most prosperous
period in the history of the country,
and the constructive measures of the
Administration which we are asked
to condemn, are largely responsible
for such conditions.
“The Democrats of Texas are not
going to join the opposition in the
wholesale condemnation of the party
that has so successfully handled the
momentous problems of the Govern-
ment in peace as well as in war.
“We have every reason to believe
that we will win a sweeping victory.

„ Nervous troubles, with backache,
dizzy spells, queer pains and irregu-
lar kidneys, give reason to suspect
kidney weakness and to try the rem-
edy that has helped your neighbors.
Mrs. W. A. Ray, E. 4th St., Lam-
pasas, says: “I sufefred with ter-
rible pains across the small of my
back and could hardly get around to
do my housework. The headaches I
had were severe and I was often so
nervous I would shake like a ’leaf.
Dizzy spells would come on when I
would bend over and everything turn-
ed black. I always had to catch hold
of something because I was afraid I
would fall. My kidneys didn’t act
freely enough at all and the pain I
suffered was unbearable. I got
Doan’s Kidney Pills at Hoffmann's
Drug Store and took them according
to directions. I soon found I had the
right remedy. Doan’s Kidney Pills
regulated my kidneys. They took all
the dizziness away, too. I wouldn’t
be without a box of Doan’s Kidney
60c at all dealers. Foster-Milbum

A TRIBUTE TO THE POLICY OF THIS STORE.
Is the thorough confidence evidenced by our ever increasing clientele. The
basic principle of this institution—the foundation upon which this business
structure rests, is Quality and Service, first and always.
In eagerness to acquire “Style,” Quality is oftimes overlooked, but Style with-
out Quality is most unreliable and unsatisfactory.

The People Who Sell It For Less
(By A. R. Harvey.)
Lampasas county has eight wells
steadily drilling, several closed down,
and three that will be drilling in the
next 30 days. Some of these wells
are making rapid progress, and all
are going down with as much speed
The Boston-Lampasas is drilling at
650 feet. This well is being put down
by one of the big companies of Texas.
The Western Lampasas is drilling
at 1100 feet. They are in the black
lime, and have a strong showing of
oil and gas. The owners are very
much enthused over the indication.
The Howell is setting casing at
1040 feet. They have a new set of
drillers who seem to be working in
Waxha-Tex No. 1 is drilling at 800
feet. This., well struck a pocket of
oil that would probably make from
one to three barrels and is making
Waxha-Tex No. 2 is drilling at
near 500 feet.
Nelms-Marvin is drilling at near
The Groves is drilling at between
two thousand and twenty-one hundred
feet. They passed through the black
lime at eight o’clock this morning
(the 8th) and are now drilling in a
brown formation. There was a strong
flow of gas. This well is being watch-
ed very closely by oil men all over the
State, who are keeping in constant
touch with the conditions. This well
has not been boosted or over-estimated
through the press, for the purpose of
selling leases, but several thousand
dollars have been invested near the
well in the last week by local business
men who are making no effort to sell
at any price.
The St. Mary is drilling with a
double shift at 1400 feet; this well has
a good standard outfit, and has been
making good progress for the last two
Several new locations are under
way, near the Groves well, caused by
the extra good showing in that well,
which will cause several other wells
to be drilled, even if this one does not
get oil in paying quantities.
C. T. Townsend, of the Kempner
section was in Lampasas Thursday
and called at The Leader office to
subscribe for the paper and showed a
freak turkey egg. The egg was just
a trifle smaller than the usual turkey
egg and one side was flattened and a
complete star was plainly visible. The
star had ten points, was symetrical
and about the size of a silver dollar.
Just what force of nature brought out
this star on the egg is not account-
able, but stars have always signified
a good omen, and we hope Mr. Town-
send’s turkey crop will be a “bum-
per” one this year.
County Agent A. L. Smith went to
Ogle Wednesday and organized the
boys and girls into an agricultural
club. They have twelve members and
propose to keep abreast of the times
with other organizations in Lampasas
county. One of the best organizations
in the county is at Kempner.

ular meeting Friday night, Judge W.
H. Adkins, W. T. MaGee and Counts
Agent Smith will visit the club and
perhaps take part in the program,
There is no one thing so conducive tc
success as co-operation, and these
clubs that have been organized ovei
the county will do much in the way oi
building up a higher standard oi
