is proposed to have a board of dir-

The spirit of tho meeting was to the
effect that dissension should bo avoid
ed and it seemed to be the desire ol
nil that the goad should be built, even
if it could not pass through oil the
The importance of the plains road
was stressed by several of the speak-

not far distant future.

Judge Dickson, who has kept in the
closest touch with every inovemnt in
the past toward building this road,
says he is confident it will be built
in the next four or five fears. Some
one of the large systems, (the Frisco
or the Santa Fe, will likely take hold
of the project when times become a
little more normal. Also, it is the
belief of Judge Dickson that all the
odds are In favor of the northern route.

Large Crowds Attending Event, and
Some are Coming Long Dlstanc.
Lectures Are Very Fine. 1
This ago is described as the "jnzz
age. ” People are accused of being of
more frivolous nuture now and not
caring for tho more serious things of
life. But the attendance this week
on tho Bible Institute at tho Baptist
church gives hope that things of re-
ligion and righteousness nre still oc-
cupying a place in the minds of some.
Baptists all over the Association arc
coming and a few from other counties.
Pustor Connell of Throckmorton has
been in regulur attendance, and Pas-
tor W. D. Boswell of Olney lias been
up for two day*. Pastor Martin of
Red Hgrings, Pastor Mcfipadden of tht
Richland church and Missionary J. T.
Strange are among the attendants. The
preachers huvo been jtrined by quite
a number in their congregations.
Tho main purpose of tho Institute
was tho coming of Dr. J, B. Tidwell,
teacher of Bible In Baylor University.
His coming has been a groat thing for
this section of the state. He know*
the Book as tow know it, anil ha* the
happy faculty of imparting his know-
ledge in a way that anybody enn un
/I erst and.
Two other people who have the hap-
py faculty of blessing every communi-
ty they visit are Dr. and Mrs. H, L.
Hargrove, now missionaries in Chinn,
Dr. Hargrove was for 19 years prof-
essor of English in Baylor Universi-
ty and is now teaching in the schools
of China. Suffice to say that people
of this section know vastly more o»
China and its people than they did
before tho coming of TJv. and Mrs.
Hargrove. They each mado two ad-
dresses while here, and Dr. Hargrove
spoke yesterday morning at, the High
school. Mrs. Hargrove illustrated her
lecture with a-mnmber of beautiful ar;
tides which sheVul collected in China
This collection would be conservative-
ly valued at $2,000. Many went for-
ward for a closer view after the lect-
ure was ovflr.
Dr. Tidwell will be here all the
week and over next Monday. Rev. K
E. Bell, formerly paastor of the Bap
tist church here, Is on tho program
tomorrow morning and night.
