BAPTIST CHURCH NOTES A large audience, represent ing nearly every churcli in Lub bock, greeted our pastor last Sun day morning. His remarks were directed chiefly to his own people and Christians generally. He spoke of ho each Christian had a special work he or she could do, sometimes aeemingly very insig nificant but in God's sight just as great and just as important as that uerfomed by the more tal ented and brilliant. He compar ed each member to a stone in the walls of the church agd ured that tbev be "living stones" and stand firm in their places that th. walls of this great building i might not totter as they so onen , wn,,rw s, spend a few das d.) when built of Ueak material. .

We hope our ad vertisers will make their ads at tractively large and that they will furnish us copy for same at least a week ahead so that we can do our best and make them show up nicvly. Extra copies of the paper will be printed and those who should want extras will please let us know by the lOih of the month so that we will have a better idea what number to print above our regular list. Mr. Stewart, who is advance man for Ellen Beach Yaw, will be in our city Friday and has consented to run fifty views of California in connection with the operetta by the school children Friday evening. This is quite a valuable feature added to the program and adds nothing to the price of admission. Mrs. T. J.

If they could see the children wadintr around in the sand, 1 know they would be willing to assist in the good work. The debate Friday evening was verv instructive. I he de- balers studied the question verv thoroughly, but the one speaker lu.nnnlh. ..,rufi lUl .hill was master of the situation andj gave the liawauana islands statehood. Many thanks to Mesdames Posey, Hunt. Taylor, Green. Elliott and Simpson for their presence at school, also their words of encouragement. We were agreeably surprised Friday evening when Miss Beard's Spanish class sang to us in the original Spanish. "Learn to do by doing," is the class motto. Miss Maude Bums, one of our much loved teachers the past year, visited us last week. The members of the society wonder why the critic criticised the local reporter so favorably and yet, failed to mention some, other selections. We presume it was his interest in German. The many trees that are being set out in Lubbock just now em phasize the need of trees in the school yard. There are six or sevtn little trees a hundred children to each tree and th children spend about one-half of their waking hours at the school! If you have a small trie that you do not need, send it to the school with vour compliments or let Mrs. Wester know and she will send for it. j Miss Kliia x th Wet b, who S i pos-sef-si r t a M'l iki o v t rare qiiaiitv, saior a selection I from llnlte'n celebrated opera I "The H .liemiaii (i.rf, at eU ipel I last Fndav mormon, aocotnp i nied bv Miss M rjaivt II.jIT ' Mu-ic of tin kim! h.n KreMt cut IuimI Viiaie, nod j.4 i.ppi eciated oy the img people ol MioiKtcK; as the W ut in Jtpi,!uun (entitled.

Texas a World Show Ground It is said Texas is the show ground of the universe. We fitted out Buffalo Hill with his unique array of primitive west ern life and sent him out to thrill the hearts of the rich and the poor of both hemispheres. We are now providing the scenes for moving picture shows and one cannot visit these popu lar places of amusement any where on the face of the earth without coming in contact with Texas frontier life. We are the national preserves for human character in its prim itive state. On our ranches and in the homes of our pioneers, honesty, friendship and courage abound in their nat've state un tainted by the soot of civilization and our iron tiers are populated with stalwart, rugged charac ters out of which great men are hewn, presenting a panorama of American life as it entered the gates of civilization.

More Communities Interested. , The tabulation of votes in the Diamond Rinir, Watch and Organ contest show a light vote this week. The voting has not been keen, but there have been some new end ies this week that will iikely start anew the fiarnes of enthusiasm, and cause some of die contestants to stand up and ake notice. No changes in the position of i he contestants appear this week. Miss Hurst is contesting closel.- for the first place, while 1ixs Dehfinlelelien holds third, with Miss Ahnev competing lively for third position. Miss Hawkins drops out of the race iandhern!ime is omitted this week. Miss Friedrich received nomination this week and a nice vote given her, but she refuses to let her name appear in the list of contestants. Miss Holes is a new one in the race and it i expected that she will reckon with the winner in the final contest.

Lowe, four sections of land in the northwest part of the county. We did not learn the considera tion, but understand the price paid was a big sum. These four sections of land are excellent and we are sure that Mr. Herd will be more than well pleased with his purchase. Mrs. P. D. Haney Dead Mrs. P. D. Haney, one of our most highly esteemed ladies, died yesterday afternoon. She will be buried today.
