7 TO INVITE GRAND LODGE Amarillo Odd Fellows Begin Work to Secure the State Gathering in 1909 At the regular meeting of the Odd Fellows Monday night, tho lodjje au thorize.! tno appointing of a commit tee to bi'Rln work toward Rotting tho state grand lodgo here In 1909. Tho next grand lodge meeting will bo In Fort Worth next March but the plucc for holding the 90! mooting should be pretty well understood by that time. By Betting In tho field early and having plans ready for work, the Amarlllo lodge expects to get the big gathering without serious difficulty. The stale grand lodge Is attended by between two and three thousand people and la one of tho most Im portant fraternal meetings of the state. It has never yet gone north of Fort Worth but the growing Im portance of the Tanhandlo and of Amarlllo will give a weight to the Invitation of the Amarlllo Odd Fel lows that will go far toward secur Ing a meeting for the northwest corner of tho big state. The general Invitation committee Already put at work by the Amarlllo lodge is composed of twenty pant grands of the lodge. This commit tee will immediately communicate with other lodges in the stato and will seek to secure the active co-operation of lodges over the Panhan dle. The lodge In 'Amarlllo Is over fif teen, years old and la now In the most flourishing condition It has ever known. Nearly 150 members are on Its rolls and It enjoys a working membership which gives the body ef fectlve strength. Lack of adequato and suitable hall accommodations has somewhat handicapped part of the lodge work heretofore but arrange ments are under way which will with In the ner future see the lodge ad mlrably equipped with complete hall and lodge rooms. DALLAS ELKS ARE . GETTING READY "The Dallas men mighty soon made us visiting Elks understand that It wasn't money that Dalian wanted from tho other lodges in the state," said E. J. Witt, yesterday in telling of the big state rally of Elks at Dallas last wee's to discuss plans for entertaining the national gather ing of Elks in 1908. "The Dallas Elks let us know that 'hey simply wanted us to bo on hand when the big time came and to help enter tain the visitors from other states. "It was the greatest kind of a surprlso to mo as it was to most of the other visiting Elks to find out on what scale the Dallas men had al ready started and how much they lave already done. Fort Worth Is working shoulder to shoulder with Dallas and the words printed on our menu cads about Fort Worth and Dallas, "How far are we apart?" and the answer "Not an inch" is true. "When they called on me for my sentiments in the matter after I had listened to those other men talk, I just got up and told thorn that I had ' a speech all right and that it was a dandy but that if I stood tip there and said it every man In tho room who had ever heard Dick Bowman would say right away, 'That's Dick Bowman's speech. ' Well you should have heard them yell, 'Hurrah for Panhandle Dick' and 'Let's hear Dick's speech.' 1 didn't give them the speech but I did let them know that Amarlllo and the Panhandle ETks are already In the business to boost for tho Dallas convention." Come South. The attention of the rest of the country and the world Is being di rected to this section. The South is coming Into its own. This is the age of advertising. Of course, it la nec essary to have the goods. The pub licity campaigns which .have marked recent years have been successful be cause of the advantages of the South. Ours Is no fake game. We have the opportunities and rich resources awaiting development, all over the South, Texas being In the lead s of all the states in the union It Is first in territory, climate ' and natural wealth. As one liistanco of the advantage of advertising the South take, this echo of the heralds of this section, Sayg tho Wall Street Journal In a recent issue: " 'Go South, young man,' Is a new axiom waiting Jor some Creely to come along and appropriate. The neglect of tho South since the civil war Is a curious Illustration of bow superficially we have peopled this continent. The East has gained sev enteen millions of population sloco 1S70. and tho West thirteen millions moro than two hundred per cent. But the South has gained but a lit tle moro than eight millions, a large proportion of which Is negro popula tion, and has been almost wholly cut from its life-giving tide of foreign Immigration, notwithstanding its fa vorable location on tho Atlantic sea board. Today tho South is reviving. She has cotton, metals, timber, fuel. Her railroads are being extended and Improved. She has cleared good profits on several recent cropB, swung Into tho currents of Immigration and is becoming a rival of the West in seeking population and Industries. Dixie's future Is bright. Her trans formation Is so recent that few Amer icans realize today what opportuni ties exist In her territory for the farmer and merchant manufacturers and capitalists." Come South, young man, and old man, too, and come to, Texas, the Twentieth century Eldorado. Hous ton Chronicle, A TINE ABOUT AMAHILLO. Dcandi Vaudeville BS-.etch Abounds in UhhI Hits. (From Thursday's Dally.) Whether there Is anything In the time that applies to Amarlllo or jiot Is a question that would have, to be left to Mr. Loyd Spencer or some other competent authority to decide but, the song that Spencer amuses himself and the audience with aft er his wife in "Her First Husband" at the Deandl, has gone to fire the cook, Is tilled with irresistible sa tire on some Amarlllo conditions and institutions that show a wonderful opportunity for Improvement. From the union station which appeals to Spencer after the manner of a hen house, to the water which never makes Amarlllo hydrants leak be cause it Isn't there, every verse brings out a new bit of tuneful satire, and naturally the audience keeps up an insistent encoring for more till the good natured singer has to call halt to finish up the rest of the act. There will be a complete change of bill tonight but "Lawrence and Sheridan" 'have a black and white sketch which is said to b as.lrre slstably funny as, fhe ghost act last night. Miss Clara Wagner Is a mon ologue artist of an excellence not often seen. Her reflections on mar ried life In the bill this week make a collection of the cleverest kind of sayings. I'KOFIT IX PANHANDLE. E. A. Pa ff rath Points to Opportune ties In Dairying, Farmers of the Panhandle, who resldo In tho vicinity of Amarlllo, are just now turning their attention to dairying. In speaking of this, Pat Paffrath of Fort Worth said: "I believe that dairying and small stock farming will accomplish for the Amarlllo country what diversification of crops and cotton have accomplish ed for the Vernon country. I be lieve that tho Amarlllo country will develop Into a great revelation to the whole United States, for its possi bilities In diversified farming, stock raising, dairying and apple, grape and p'lum growing are simply won derful. Cattle Take Premiums. "The cattlo bred in the Amarlllo country, namely the J. A.', the X. 1. T.'s and the L. S.'a, have taken the premiums at the fat stock shows at Kansas City and Chicago n competi tion with tho whole United . States, The L. S. ranch for seven years has branded over 73 per 'cent ;of calves. R. S. Coon of Dalhart, has branded this year out. of 1,000. pow-s 90 per cent of calves. Hogs grow as fine' as they do on earth In that whoje coun try, and so tar as I know disease among hogs Is unknown In the Ama rlllo country. I am Informed that it Is also a very fine poultry country. I know that it is a fine sheep coun try. It used to be full of sheep be fore the cowman bought the land and Ian out the sheep people.. They can breed and develop fine horses and mules in the Amarlllo country. am told that Mr. Trigg, living about twenty miles northeast of Amarlllo, buys young mules In ,the black land country of Texas and deveky43 thorn Often The Kidneys Are Weakened by Over-Work. Unhealthy Kidneys Make Impure Blood. It uwd to 1e considered that only urinary snd bladder troubles were to bo traced to tue kidneys, but now modern science proves that nearly all diseases have their beginning in the disorder of these most important organs. The kidneys filter and purify the blood l ii i N inai is mcir work, Therefore, when your kidueysare weak or out of order, you can understand how quickly your entire body is Hffected and how every organ seems to fail to do its duty. If you are sick or "feel badly," begin taking the great kidney remedy, Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Rout, because as soon as your kidneys are well they will help all the other organs to health. A trial will convince anyone. If you sre sick you can make no mis take by first doctoring vour kidneys. The mild and the extraordinary effect of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, the greut kidney remedy, is soon realized. It stands the honest for its wonderful cures of the most distressing cases, and is sold on its merits bv all druggists in fifty-cent bottles. ou may have a sample bottlt nomnofSwmmp-Root by mail free, also a pamphlet telling you how to find out if you have kidney or bladder trouble. Mention this iviper when writing to Dr. Kilmer & Co., King hamton. N. Y. Don't make any mistake, but remember the name, Swamp-Root, Dr. Kilmer's Swatnp-Root, and tlie ad dress, Biugliamtou.N. Y., on every bottle. In the Amarlllo country to his profit and satisfaction. Steers Bring Fancy Prices. ""The L. X. ranch for many years successfully bred fine cattle, also bought and developed young steers. I have been Informed that Henry Harding, who last year bought the L. X. 2-year old steers, sold them last fall for $32 a head. Loc Blvins, who owns a part of the L. X. ranch, I am informed, sold last February, a lot of 4-year old steers at $38, which at that time was considered a very high price for steers. He sold them to M. F. Ferguson of Kansas. Mr. Ferguson, when receiving them, told mo that they were In better condi tion off the grass than his (Fergu son's) steers In Kansas that had been heavily roughed 'by his having fed them. Captain Burnett's Results. "Captain S. B. Burnett, who owns the Dixon creek ranch, northeast of Amarlllo, on the Canadian river, ad joining the L. X. ranch, has for a number of years taken his yearling steers from his Figure Eight and (166 ranch, in King county, Texas, to his Dixon creek ranch and devel oped tho said steers, to his profit and satisfaction, which proves what can be done In the development of steers Lin that country. "All kinds of feed stuff, Including alfalfa, can be successfully grown be yond reasonable doubt In the Ama rlllo country. The altitude Is above malaria and the latitude is a fa vorable one, giving cool nights the year around, wlhch makes It health ful for man and beast. They have very pure and fine water and air In the Amarlllo country and very few insects, all of which goes to make It a desirable stock farming and dairy ing country. What Families May Do. "One of the reasons that dairying Is always a desirable and profitable Industry for any country Is that the farmer whose riches consists In hav ing a large family of children can utilize his children's labor by having them attend the dairy cows and feed the skim milk to the hogs and poul try of mornings before going to school and In the evenings after re turning from school, which means the development of three of the most profitable industries In one the dairy, hog and poultry business, and not only gives tho farmers' children an education, but makes them prac tical in three Industries as well 'as teaches them something about prac tical business methods, making them very creditable citizens for any coun try, and makes the entire family prosperous and enables them to en Joy a happy home, which Is the true basis of the greatness of any country. " Confidence In the Panhandle. "For three reasons I have grout confidence in the development of the dairy business in the Amarlllo coun try, and in bo doing develop a new and profitable Industry Qver the en tire state of Texas yes, In the en tire Southwest,' twhlch in turn will make It possible to develop tho greatest packing Industry In the Southwest that there is to be found In the United States. '"T0 much publicity cannot e given to this business, In order that our citizens might familiarize them selves with the possibilities, of the dairy business of the Amarlllo coun try and In the entire Southwest. "I believe "that the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas, and one-dollar auer-rttntik.mfmW Jointly with the agricultural depart ment of tho United States, should put a dairy demonstration farm in tho Amarlllo country, It. 8. Allen and associates in the very near future will put a dairy colony pn their L. X. land, which will demonstrate what can bo done, but It Is very desirable to have a government demonstration dairy farm, which will give out things thut are official." Fort Worth Stockman-Jourual.

Cook, a young machinist employed at the Water & Light Co.'s plant, in Installing some of the new machinery, Is at tho sanitarium suf fering from a wound in his skull that almost caused his death. Yes terday Cook was working around one of tho wells across Second street from the power plant and while he was under the tower a massive Iron hook from 'the top of the forty foot tower dropped and struck him on the top of the hoad. The blow splin tered his skull and for a Dime he was wholly unconscious.
