Make this Christmas time a hap

do BO.
The Jimplecute and force wish
for its patrons and readers a mer

and the session is counted upon to
deal with tariff affairs, trusts, cur

Our state offers the greatest
possibilities in the world for the
man who is willing to work for
a living and as most of us have to
do that, why let's boost for the
best country on earth and toll
our friends about Texas.
Every few days we notice in
the papers of the state that a
new commercial club has been
organized in some town. This
is the surest indication of a pro
gressive community we know of.
An active commercial club is the
most powerful factor for a
town's advancement that it can
have. _______
Nothing attests the coming
commercial supremecy of Jeffer
son so much and signicantly, as
our three substantial banks, and
popular depository at the i>ost
office. This broad system gives
the people a bountiful source for
deposit and double assurance for
safety, We are proud of our
staunch banks, and glad of their
accommadating facilities.
A list of the public lands that
will be put on the market be
tween January 1st, and June 30,
1912 has been given out by
State Land Commissioner Robi
8on. In some of the counties
the tracts are small and purchas
es may be made without settle
ment. In such cases about one
half the purchase price must be
paid in cash. Three years settle
ment is required in the countries
where large tracts will be put
on the market, but only about
one-fortieth of the contract price
is demanded in cash, the re
mainder to be paid annually in
installments of one-fortieth and
interest. Under this arrang
ment several hundred thousnd
acres of land will be offered for
The light of Judge W. F. Ram
sey for Governor, is a tight for
good government and decency in
politics; and every man interest
ed in the welfare of Texas should
lend their aid in removing from
office men who have been unfaith
ful to their trusts. There should
be a Ramsey Club organized in
Marion county. Already in some
counties there has been organ
ised central clubs and arrange
ments made for local clubs at
each school house district. We
hope that ere long Ramsey's
friends will organize in Marion
county, lighting for clean ]x>li
tica and good government.

'guilty Wt innrdor in tlt<* first dr
'gw in Judge Walter Hordwell'a
court today. Hi* brother, John
J. Mc.Namiirn, wretary of the
International. Association of
Bridge and Structural Iron
worker*, entered a plea of guilty
to having dynamited the I Jewel
yn Iron Works in IAm Angeles
on Christmas day 1010. Tin* Me
Namara*' confession clears up
the tragedy of the explosion and
fin« which at 1:47 o'clock or the
morning of October 10 1910,
wrecked the Los Angeles Times
at First and Broadway and caus
ed the death of twenty one i>er
sons. For nineteen of these deaths
the McNamara brothers were in
dicted and J. B. McNamara was
on trial specifically for the mur
der of Chas. J. Haggery, a ma
chinist whose body was found
nearer than that of any other to
the spot where the dynamite was
supposed to have been placed.
December 5 was set as the date
to sentence both men and it is
said District Attorney John D.
Fredericks will ask life imprison
ment for James B. McNamara,
the confessed murnerer, and bro
ther. The men's lives are con
sidered saved. The great con
tention that the Los Angeles
Times was not dynamited is
dead beyond resurection or argu
ment. Tonight as the two broth
ers sat togather in the county
jail refusing to see any one or to
make any statement. Interest,
second only to the occou ranee
itself, hung about James B. Mc
Namara in the question, "Why
did he confess?" "He confessed
to save his life and that's all
there is to it," said Attorney
Fredericks. "We considered
that was the best thing for him
to do," said Attorney Darrow
for the defense. "I want to say
now there was no other reason
or mtive in it. I have studied
this case two months. It pre
sented a stone wall." Darrow's
statement was made as looking
squarely in the facesof the charg
es that the recent arrest of Dep
uty Franklin, an investigator em
ployed by the defense and two
others with him might have pre
cipitated a situation untenable
saved b^ confession of the pris
oner. "Negotiation have beenon
for weeks," asserted Darrow,
and this was corroborated by
District Attorney Fredericks.
"We expected at one time that
Jim would confess last Monday
but lie did not," said Darrow.
Added to a reliable report up
on governmental statistics, giv
ing Jefferson the credit of being
the third healthiest town in the
Union, according to population,
is the significant claim of that
I>opular gentleman and strenu
ous cotton buyer, Dick Askew of
Sulphur Springs, who is here
this season and evidentlyfavoring
the bull proposition to advance
the staple to a resectable alti
tude. He ;s a sinal man physi
cally, but recently attained an
avoirdupois that added 30 pounds
to his usual normal weight,
around a 100 pounds. In his
manual labor operations in the
fields with his croppers at home,
he was reduced to a minimum;
and when the more pleasant
duties came of gathering and
disposing of the products, he
took on ' a proud 115." Now that
he has attained 130 pounds of
sound healthy Mesh, he is—going
some, and his friends marvel
much, and we congratulate him
over hisphysical accomplishment
come to Jefferson—and do like
wise. Its bountiful artisian wa
ter and magic assets is a combi
nation that wakes the sinews of
aspiration into full fruition.

Mr Editor. —Sin is a very small
word, but means so much to all.
God's word tells us "The wages
of Sin is death."
What is Sin? It is the fore
runner of the Devil's influence
over the life of man; again, it is
doing the things we are told not
to do by God's word.

There are persons, called
farmers, who make a living by
practicing agriculture. For|
them agriculture? is an industry.
There are others who are invest
igators and teachers of the art
and science of agriculture. For
these agriculture is a technical
profession. Hut agriculture is I
this and more, it is a civilization
and the world's oldest civiliza
tion. The modern trend in ed
ucation is that the school should
reflect the principle elements of
the civilization in which it is
placed. Therefore the country
should teach some of the fund
amentals of agriculture.
A meeting held at Madison, (
Wis., a short time ago for the
promotion of the general use
of school buildings as social and
civic centers was attended by
some of the ablest men in
America, including <Jov. Wood
row Wilson, of New Jersey, who
may be the next President of
the United States.
The rural and village schools
should, and must, become the
centers of attraction in every re
spective community. All of
them should be provided with
libraries for the benefit of the
school and of the public. All
kinds of meetings of a harmless,
elevating character should be
held in the school building. A
fund should be provided by the
different counties to pay for lec
tures by intelligent men and
women upon Agriculture, Domes
tic Science and other subjects of
special interest to the people in
the different communities in each
In this way the school can be
made a source of great pleasure
and benefit to all who live in
its vicinity. What becomes a
part of the school eventually be
comes a part of the life of the
people in that region; hence
everything good and elevating
should become a part of the
school.—Progressive Teacher.
Because we desire so strongly
to have each school house in
Marion county become a social
center; we have urged that all
new school buildings be commod
ious in size. The school build
ing has not served it's full pur
pose, when it has given shelter
to pupils six or seven months in
the year. It should be a club
house for the adults of the com
munity. This is another reason
why the school house and ground
should be made beautiful.
The deadly feather duster is
rapidly being banished from our
public schools. Among the 1,308
cities from which reports were
received, 1543, or over sixty per
cent are using moist cloths for
dusting purposes, and 894, or
close to ninty per cent, are using
dust-absorbing compounds for
sweeping. In the forefront of
progress with respect to the
adaptation of modern sanitary
appliances, are eighty-seven ci
ties that are cleaning their school
rooms by vacuum cleaners.
Thirty-three of these cities are
in the North Atlantic States,
and thirty-seven in the South
Central ones. These most en
couraging signs of progress with
respect to the cleansingof school
rooms indicate that the day is
not far distant when our schools
will bo as clean as hospitals, and
I for the same reasons. Dept. of

from the house at East Fourth

home that he has occupied until
The timber for the house was
hauled from Jefferson, Texas,
on ox wagons, and cost $65 per

all these years the house has
