LET'S MAKE OUR ia
FARMS REAL HOMES
"Yes, Jones is a good farmer, one o'
of the best around here, in fact," one n
of his neighbors told us, "but you
know everything he makes he puts o1
right back into his place. Last year bi
he painted his house and built a new
barn, this year he put in waterworks,
and next year he says it's going to be at
an electric light plant. He may be a
fine farmer, all right, but I don't see t
how he's ever going to get anything '
ahead the way he's doing it." Ct
It was in the tip of our tongue to
give Jones' neighbor a piece of our
Smind in regard to the real meaning 01
Sof "getting ahead." We felt like tell.
ing him that Jones, in his efforts to "
make his farm a pleasant, comfort
able, happy home equipped with mod- h
ern conveniences, that every home
should have, had, in our opinion, a
very sound conception of the proper a
goal at which his efforts should aim. ii
We firmly believe in hard work and C
saving every cent possible, for indus
try and economy are the sure stepping
I stones to success; but at the same
time let's never forget that making
and saving money for money's sake is
a mighty poor sort of business. Mon
ey is useful only as it goes to make
our lives and the lives of those about
us happier and better; only as it goes
to make of the farm a place where the
t highest type of manhood and woman
hood may be developed. This fall in
e most sections of the South, high prices
for farm products are going to mean
more surplus cash than for a number
of years, and the farmer must deter
mine the wisest use to which his sur
plus cash shall be put.-,The Progres

M. Stewart, pastor of the Presbyter
ian church of Welsh, officiating.
The affair was a surprise to every
one, though "Madam Rumor" had an
nounced it for this fall.
It was a quiet home wedding with
only the immediate family of the
bride present, except Mr. T. B. Mc
Millan of Welsh, who accompanied
the minister on the trip and served
as one of the witnesses.
The bride was dressed in a stylish
traveling suit of navy blue velvet
trimmed in white, which was very be
coming, and brought out the peculiar
charms of her beauty.
The bridal party left from Crowley

San Antonio and Corpus Christi,*

Mr. Moore has recentlp improved*
the home on the corner'of South Ad

it occupied by such a splendid young
couple. Miss McCain is the daugh

Ellis, and is not a stranger to Welsh,
having often visited her sister, Mrs.
Clarence Estes. Mr. Moore is the
son of Mr. F. Moore, and is a success
