The Best Pumping
Thousands of thoughtless farmers are doing the
work of engines. Pumping water for stock and run
ning all sorts of machines by muscle powea. Burning
up human energy instead of cheap gasoline. It's the
most expensive mistake a man can make a man can
make to become a mere machine. Don't do it.
Pumping by Engine
Power is Play!
A man can "take it easy" in the shade
while the Farm Pump Engine works.

TEST AGAINST SALE
Great Crowd Discuss Sale of
School Land. Strong Sen
timent Against Action
of the Court.
At least n thousand men assem
bled in the District Court room
at one o'eloek today in mass meet
ing to diseuss the recent action of
the Commissioner 'h Court in the
sale of Scurry County's four Iea
pucs of school land.
This body of land was recent
ly sold to parties here in Snyder
for 1,16,000 or about, it is stated
$G..rM an acre. It is alleged by
citizens that before the papers
were signed, nn offer of $7.00 an
acre was made, but mernbafs of
the court Kay the trade had al
ready been made when that of
fer was made.
The matter is one of great inter
est to the people and citizens are
here from every section of the
county to join in protesting a
gainst suffering the county to
lose the difference in these valua
tions. The house was called to order
by JI. K. Rosser, who stated the
purpose of the gathering.
A. C. Wilnieth was elected chair
man and (!. C. Cowling, Secretary
of the meeting.
On motion of II. I'. Wellborn,
the chair appointed a committee
on resolutions, consisting of II. I
Wellborn, Stone Carden, J. I).
Poone, John Y. Mowen and A. L.
While the Committee were out.
Judge Buchanan was called for
and told some of the history of
He cited where Kent and Hor
den counties sold their school land
for more and Raid he believes our
Commissioners were too hasty in
selling and that they should have
waited till the land was more mar
ketable. Mac TaylV argued that the
land had sold at a good price and
quoted Judge Heale in support of
M. K. Rosser thought the court
had made a serious mistake, but,
he stressed his confidence in the
integrity of the court anil believ-l
ed it an honest mistake. lie gave J
it as his belief that the contract is
against the public good and there-;
fore subject to be undone. i
The sentiment of the audience.!
judged from the applause was ov-1
ervh''Imingly favorable to the,
speakers opposing the action ol'j
the court. J
Judge Smith and Commission-:
ers Lowe and Stinson stated their,
reasons for making the deal and
for believing that they were pet-;
ting a good price for the land. I
The meeting was stjll in pro- .
press jit the time the paper goes '
to press and a fuller report of
the proceedings will bo given in
The resolutions committee sub
mitted a report which was being
We your committee on resold

That whereas, the Commission
ers Court of Scurry County did
on June 22, A. I)., 1911, sell the
Scurry County School lands for
tl 16,000 on a contract that we do
not believe a judicious one for the
County, and believing that said
sum of money was too small an
amount for said land, we respect
fully recommend that our Com
missioners Court make such effort
as it is possible for1 them to recov
er said land and rescind said con
tract and that in case any or nil
of said court and judge feel that
they canWt conscientiously take
such steps then that they resign
and have other parties elected
who can do o, we further, recom
mend that the chair uppoiut' a
committee of ten to make such in
vestigation as they think proper
to see what can done to recov
er said land.

After discussing the report the
house adopted that part that the
land was sold too cheap and that
the court he asked to rescind their
action in selling the land, but
when it came to that part of the
rcporPaskinp the members of the
court to seek to recover the land
or resign, that part of the report
J. Y. llowen thinks the land
worth nine or ten dollars an acre.
Henry Wellborn stated that he
stood ready to offer eight dollars
A. C. Wilmeth thinks the court
made an error and that he thinks
the report of the committee
should be modified. He thought
the court should set aside the sale
on the grounds of Judge Smith's
ruling the ISroek mot ion out of or
der. As the matter now stands the
sentiment is that the land was
sold too low and that steps should
be taRen to set the sale aside an. I
recover the hind.
That part of the mass nn-ctinpr

invest ifratf a way to recover the
school land was not voted 011 and
