The surest way to pay off your mortgage is to
sell the land you now have, take what you have
left, and after satisfying the mortgage, go to the
Southwest and buy a farm unincumbered. You
do it, for land costs only a small part of
what land costs in your locality, and good land
it is, too. You can buy a bigger and better farm
in the Southwest than you now have, and need
have no mortgage to worry you. You can do
this now, but not two or three years hence for
so many wide-awake farmers are going into the
Southwest each month to buy up most of the
good land, that it will not be very long before
the best of it will be gone.
Now Is your opportunity
to exchange your few acres at home for a bigger
add more productive farm in the Southwest. You
can sell your present farm, pay off the mortgage and
have enough left to buy a big farm in the South
westthat will make you independent in a few years.
Write us what you want and we can place you in
touch with the very thing yqu are looking for.

BETHEL WILL BE HELPED
Endowment for Settlement House Is
Object of Entertainment.
The gift of Judge E. S. Jones fur
nished a lot on which the present Bethel
settlement building was erected in 1883,
and the recent gift of Charles S. Pills
bury and John S. Pillsbury made the
new Pillsbury a possibility, and now
there remains one great responsibility
to secure an endowment fund for the
maintainence of new building.
As a mean to this end a musical en
tertainment with an address by Govern
or Johnson is to be given Friday even

The new site for the settlement at
Fourth street and Sixteenth avenue S

has blessed and brightened the lives of
corntless numbers of, men, women and

It will still remain in a vicinity
where rents are as high as in Chicago's
most crowded district where incomes
are small and uncertain, where ill-nour

rooms encourage sickness, where there
is little money for even cheap outings
or pleasures and the temptation to evil
amusement is on every hand.
The men and women of the neighbor
hood are now working hard to earn
money to furnish some of the rooms in
the new building, and the board of di

funds necessary to carry on the broad

ONIONS ON FIVE ACRES
This Is the Estimate Placed on His Crop
by Edward Hart of Falfurrlas, Texas
They Will Net Him $2,000A Year Ago
This Land Was Grazing Texas Steers.
Special Correspondence by W. A. Otis.
Falfurrias, Texas, March 20, 1906.
A year ago, at the instance of the Fal
furrias Immigration company, Edward
Hart moved here from New Mexico. Yes
terday I saw on his farm five acres of
Bermuda onions, which will be marketed
before April 1, several weeks in advance
of any possible competition. He esti
mates the yield at 20,000 pounds to the
acre and says the onions will net him
2 cents a pound. This means $2,000 net
profit on five acres of new land that sold
for 15 per acre.
A month ago Mr. Hart had thirteen
different vegetables growing on twenty
three acres Most of this crop has been
marketed now. Fulfarrias is succeeding I
because its crops are ready for market I
when the market is begging, thus com
manding top prices for everything.

SGODT AND ACTOR
DIFFER AS TO ART
The issue is joined. It may lead to a
shooting affair and it may get no fur
ther than a war of opinions. The prin
cipals are Captain Jack Hart, who
criticized the trappings of an act at
the Orpheum, and E. Frederic (nix the
k) Hawley, who is playing "Held for
Eansom" at the Seventh street home
of reformed variety.
The first potshot came when Captain
Hart said that Hawley's "business"
was bad, that the girl didn't know
enough to shoot when she had the drop,
that Hawley's greaser trappings smelled
of the harness counter of a department
store that Hawley shouldn't strike
matches upon the suburbs of his trous
ers, that his boots squeaked, etc.
Today Hawley has drawn his trusty
Colts and fountain pen and in a letter
to The Journal answers the criti
cisms of Captain Jack. Following are a
few of the shots which he takes at his
He also speaks of how they should
be struck, On the Barrel of his Six
Shooter. If he ever tried to light one
on the Polished Surface, he would see
how foolish it realy would be, and as
for striking it on the rowel of his Spur,
Nonsence. Greesers May do these things,
as they are capable of doing, what only
they would do, But this man is not a
Greeser he plainly shows that he is
of the higher class of Mexican.
He also goes into the details of how
the Girl should hang on to her Gun.
Now had he noticed Closely, he would
have seen that ftie Gun She carries, is
A 44 Frontier Six~Shooter, Colts Make
That in itself, is an Auful thing for a
Woman to pack, And next to Suiside
to fire, as the Eeeoil is A Tuff article
for any one to go up against, had He
watched her closely, he would have seen
her hide it under the pillow. When
she finds that she is alone and at his
Mercy and then she does not run and
get it, She is thrown straight to it.
Captain Jack is a good shot, can hit
a sparrow a half a mock away with
half a brick. Hawley is determined to
defend his honor as a stage greaser of
purest ray serene. Any artillery prac
tice in the vicinity of the theater zone
can be taken as an adjudication of Cap
tain Jack's first dash of dramatic criti
cism. Cyclone cellars are safest when
actors get to shooting and old-time
scouts are upholding their honor. The
Skidoo is the popular move if one hears
the sound of shots.

Honors are easy between the fresh

sophomore orators bested their fresh

the decision of the judges, and Albert
Evans, a sophomore, was awarded third
The Peavey-Dunwoody contest is an
annual affair open to orators from the
freshman and sophomore classes, and it
is always productive of great forensic
rivalry. Prizes aggregating $50 are
presented to the three orators ranking
Last night's contest was one of the
best in the history of university ora
tory. Eight contestants were entered,
and, cheered by their classmates, the
young orators did remarkably well.
The contestants were Harold Deer
ing, Z. L. Potter, Albert Evans, Jens
Johnson, Albert Gilbertson, William

Determined that there shall be no
repetition of costly campus conflagra
tions, the university board of regents
will next summer install a new system
of water pipes and hydrants on the uni
versity grounds. This action will be
taken as a result of the expressed opin
ion of Fire Chief Canterbury that the
present system of hydrants is entirely
inadequate and that the destruction of
the old main building was due in a
measure to the inadequacy of water
The plan proposed by Chief Canter
bury includes the laying of 12-inch
pipes connected with the Fourth street
SE main, and the placing of at least fif
teen hydrants in different parts of the
campus. At present there are eight hy
drants on the university grounds, all
connected with six-inch pipes.
Plans for the new system are now be
ing completed and it is estimated that
the cost of the improvement will be
in the neighborhood of $7,000.

subject will be an elective, open to
