Help Flood Sufferers.
Realizing that the people of
this section have suffered little
from the great flood which has
covered other parts of Texas,
bringing destitution and distress
in its wake, the people of Lam-
pasas and surrounding country
are asked to make contributions
of money, of good cast off cloth-
ing, or of anything that can be
used by those who are in dis-
Contributions of money may
be left with either of the banks
at Lampasas, and clothing and
other goods should be left at the
county court room. Pastors of
all the churches are requested to
take collections from their con-
gregations Sunday at 11 o’clock
the money thus secured to be
sent to sufferers in other parts of
the state. W. H. McGuire,
dw Mayor of Lampasas.
June Cox, of the upper end of
the county, was here Tuesday
and made The Leader a pleasant
business call, advancing his date
on this paper and the Dallas
News. Thanks, young man.
A wreck occurred Tuesday
night about 9 o’clock on the
transfer track right at the cross-
ing of Burleson creek, and Thur-
mond Lindsey, who was employ-
ed as a brakeman, suffered a
broken nose and a fractured
skull. The train was a freight
and went on the transfer to
switch some cars, and Mr. Lind-
sey was on the car which fell,
being thrown toff onto the rocks
by the jolt which wrecked the
car. It is said the track seems
to be in its normal condition since
the accident, and no cause can
be given for the wreck. Mr.
Lindsey was taken to the Santa
Fe hospital at Temple, where his
injuries will have attention, and
it is hoped they will not prove
serious. He is a son of T. A.
Lindsey, of Lampasas, who ac-
companied him to Temple.
Dr.Hobson’s ointment heals Itchy Eczema
The constantly itching, burning sen-
sation and other disagreeable forms of
eczema, tetter, salt rheum and skin
eruptions promptly cured by Dr. Hob-
son’s Eczema Ointment. Geo. W. Fitch,
of Mendota, 111., says: “I purchased a
box pf Dr. Hobson’s Eczema Ointment.
Have had eczema ever since the civil
war, have been treated by many doc-
tors, none have given the benefit that
one box of Dr. Hobson’s Eczema Oint-
ment has.” Every sufferer should try
it. We’re so positive it will help you
we guarantee it or money refunded.

Refugees Reach American Border.
Presidio, Texas, Dec. 9.—The
straggling remainder of the fed-
eral army and civilian refugees
from Chihuahua began arriving
at Ojinaga today. Those reach-
ing the American side say that
there are more than 4000 persons
in the caravan.
Civilians will be permitted to
enter the United States, and food
supplies will be allowed shipped
across the border to the federals,
but the American troops have
been instructed to avoid any in-
fraction of the neutrality laws.
Card of Thanks.
"Without the aid of the people
who came to assist, and especi-
ally without the help of the Boy
Scouts, our losses in cotton
would have been great, but with
this noble band of helpers will-
ingly working for us, we can
state that we did not lose a bale
of cotton, and we thus wish to
express publicly our gratitude to
all, and especially to the Boy
Scouts, for assisting in saving
wd Colbert & Blackshear.
Several bales of cotton belong-
ing to Stokes Bros, of Lampasas,
have been caught near the Sa-
lado bridge where men are watch-
ing for them as they come down.
Sheriff Blair has been authorized
to pay $5 reward for each bale
J. H. Savage who has been
living in the neighborhood of
Copperas Cove for the past sev-
eral years, has sold his posses-
sions there and will try his for-
tune in the boundless west. Mr.
Savage formerly lived here and
made a good citizen. May good
luck attend him.
J. D. Morgan, who makes his
home just beyond the Hancock
springs, was in the city Friday
and made The Leader a pleasant
business call. He has lived here
almost since the beginning, and
is little afraid of high waters or
other such disturbances as occur
in this section.
W. C. Lauderdale, of Naruna,
was here Tuesday and made The
Leader a business call. He is
one of the small grain growers of
this section, and has made a
specialty of growing wheat for
many years. He states that the
best wheat crop ever raised in
this part of Texas was that of the
summer of 1913, when many
farms made as much as forty
bushels of wheat to the acre.
This kind of crops will beat cot-
ton any year, and the oat crop
paid better last year than the
C. C. Higgins and family leave
this week for their new home at
Bertram, Burnet county, where
they have purchased a small
farm and will make their home
there. The advance of the price
of land in the past nine years is
shown clearly in the sale of his
farm here, the amount received
in cash for it being just about
double the price he paid for it
nine years ago, and very little
had been spent upon it in the
way of improvements. J. E.
Vernor and E. B. Millican, jr.,
bought this property, Vernor
taking the part east and Millican
the part west of the Georgetown
rb&d. Each had lands adjoining
the Higgins property. May suc-
cess attend Mr. Higgins and his
intelligent and worthy family in
their new abode.
Constipation Poisons You.
If you are constipated, your entire
system is poisoned by the waste mat-
ter kept in the body—serious results
often follow. Use Dr. King’s New Life
Pills and you will soon get rid of con-
stipation, headache and other troubles.

The President’s Message.
In pursuance of his constitu-
tional duty to give to the Con-
gress information of the state of
the Union, President Wilson ad-
vises that body and all the peo-
ple that “the country is at peace
with all the world,” and the
prospects are fair for a continu-
ance of this happy situation.
It has been the privilege of the
Department of State, says the
president, to gain the assent, in
principle, of nations representing
four-fifths of the population of
the world to the negotiation of
treaties whereby international
differences that cannot be re-
solved by the ordinary processes
of diplomacy may be publicly
analyzed, discussed and reported
upon by a triburnal chosen for
> This looks like the dawn of a
new era, like a possible realiza-
tion of the dream of perpetual
peace which so many critics have
characterized as iridescent and
have been disposed to mock and
jeer. It is suggestive of the time
when disarmament may become
a real purpose and when right
and justice as determined by
properly constituted and recog-
nized tribunals shall supersede
the sword as the final arbiter.
That may be far in the future,
but it is pleasing to know that
President Wilson and the State
Department find the tendency so
much that way. There is but
one cloud on the horizon, says
the president, and in connection
therewith he reiterates what he
has said so many times before as
to the impossibility of recogniz-
ing the government which has
been set up in the neighboring
republic, as he says, without a
semblance of constitutional au-
thority. He expresses confidence
that that government is slowly
crumbling and that the collapse
is not far away, so it may not be
necessary to alter this Nation’s
policy of “watchfully waiting.”
Naturally the President takes
advantage of the opportunity to
put in a good word for the pend-
ing currency bill “for which the
country waits with impatience,
as for something fundamental to
its whole business life and nec-
essary to set credit free from ar-
bitrary and artificial restraints”
and he expects it to be of great
assistance in solving the problem
of rural credits and of putting
the farmer more nearly on the
same basis as the merchant and
The President recommends the
selection of nominees for presi-
dent and vice president by pri-
mary elections throughout the
country at which the voters of
the several parties may choose
their nominess without the inter-
vention of nominating conven-
tions, except for declaring the
verdict and formulating plat-
Three or four other matters are
touched upon which will be elab-
orated in a special message later
in the session.—San Antonio
Mrs. John Tinnin is reported as
being seriously ill with pneumo-
nia at her home five miles east of
Lampasas on the Belton road.
She is one of the older residents
of this county, she and her hus-
band having settled here in an
early day, and she has lived here
continuously. She is with her
daughter, Mrs. Mace Malony.
D. J. Stockman will accept
thanks for his remembrance of
The Leader, and the remittance
he sent by a friend will keep this
paper and the Dallas News com-
ing to his home for another year.

KEEP THE KIDNEYS WELL.
Health is Worth Saving, and Some
Lampasas People Know how to Save It.
Many Lampasas people take their
lives in their hands by'neglecting the
kidneys when they know these organs
need help. Weak kidneys are respon-
sible for a vast amount of suffering
and ill health—the slightest delay is
dangerous. Use Doan’s Kidney Pills—
a remedy that has helped thousands of
kidney sufferers. Here is a Lampasas
E. B. Radford, transfer and baggage
man, Lampasas, Texas, says: “I had
kidney and bladder complaint for some
time. The pain often seized me in my
back. My kidneys caused me annoy-
ance and at times the kidney secre-
tions were profuse, especially at night.
I also had dull headaches. As my fam-
ily had used Doan’s Kidney Pills with
benefit, I made up my mind to take
them myself. I soon found that they
were just the remedy I needed. I hope
they will completely cure me.”

Saved Child's Life

into a water tank and was
rescued unconscious and
The frantic mother tele-
phoned to the doctor six
miles away, and he started
at once. In the meantime
his assistant telephoned in-
structions and the mother
restored the child to con-
sciousness before the doctor
The telephone service
saved the child’s life.
Rural mail carriers have a kick
coming, likewise, the city car-
riers will have their complaint
later on. Fifty-pound packages
by parcel post is the new order*
Such weight will be accepted for-
forwarding in first and second
zones, after some preparation is
made for handling same. Noth-
ing less than vehicles in cities;
and a regular tme of vehicles on
rural routes is going to eufSce
when the increased weight and
increased use of the service are
in force. So far, the parcel post
has not been manipulated to the
advantage of the distant mail or-
der houses. The advantage i©
all with the shipper in his local
territory, and while the distant
houses have been prepared to
profit by the concessions they
receive, the local industry will
come along in due time. It is
going to take time for business
men and public to fully grasp the
opportunities thus given them, in
this service. They must develop
their_markets and accustom
themselves to a new system of
doing business. Gradually, the-
telephone order and the parcel
post delivery will supersede the
“coming to town” way, both in
the sending of goods out from
trade centers and in receiving
supplies from the country.—Tern*,
