Comptroller R. M. Love this week •eat out from Austin to the county judges of every county in the state a letter regarding many applicaatir tor pensions under the Confederate pension act, as the comptroller has been advised of the fact that many applicants are unable to make proof of service in the Confederate army by witnesses residing in the county where the applicant lives. In all such cases the comptroller advises the county as follows: "Where an applicant for a pension under the Confederate pension law, can not make tiie necessary proof of service in the Confederate army by witnesses within the county where such applicant resides —and in which county the application is pending this department holds that the applicant may, by depositions, taken by virti'e of interrogatories, framed under the direction of the county judges with whom the a; · plication is filed, and with cross in terrogatories by such county jud^e if tie desires it, secure such testi mony from witnesses who reside without tlie county, of the residence of the applicant, or without this state. It is believed further, that the testimony of witnesses residing within the county of the applicant's residence may be secured by the same mode of procedure, when for any reason deemed good and suffi cient by the county judge, such a course is deemed necessary by such officer. "It is not believed, however, that exparte affidavits would be a com pliance with or fulfillment ol the intention and meaning of the law. "In all cases where the proof of service is secured by depositions, especial care should be exercised by the county judges that interrogato ries be so prepared that the answers thereto will establish clearly the «identity of the applicant. "The blanks required for the above purpose will be furnished by thii department upon application." Kscaped an Awful Fate. Mr. H. Haggins, of Melbourne, Kla., writes, My doctor told ine j bad Consumption and nothing could be do le for ine. J was given up to die. The offer of a free trial bottle of Dr. King's New Discovery for Consumption, induced me to try it. Kesultt were startling, i am now vn the road to recovery aud owe all to Dr. King's New Discovery.

FROM THE F1ELIX BY INNOCeWCB ABROAD The only way to look at the coun try now is from a car window, that is if one has the wherewith to buy the pasteboard to hand to the con ductor when he comes round through the car hunting for it. I have very little of that wherewith to buy that kind of pasteboard. We do adver tising for the railroads and they in return pay us in the kind of paste board the conductor honors when one goes traveling. I had some pri vate business in Sherman and last Saturday morning I boarded a Katy train for Dallas. Charlie Kent, my partner in the Daily Light and who is business manager of that paper, went with me. He has a sister residing in Sherman. Water every where—enough of that fluid has fal len in the last four months to al most float Noah's ark, and about the only drv spot between Waxa-1 hachie and Dallas we noticed was when we struck the piked roads! soon after our train crossed the' Ellis and Dallas county line. The j fact is that piked roads looked good j to an Ellis county citizen and it j made me green with envy for a Dal- ! las county citizen, who hitches his j team to vehicles and goes whistling and trotting to his postoffice, mar ket and county seat, and this is what the citizens of Dallas anil Tar rant counties art- doing now every day, while at this same good hour an Ellis county citizen is hitching six good mules to au empty wagon and then cannot navigate through this mud more than a mile an hour. Ellis county is known throughout Texas and the world at lar^e to be one of trie very best and her citizens are entitled to the best of every thing and while we have been slower than some of our nearby neighbor ing counties in getting some things, yet the time is coming and I hope not far off when all the citizens of this rich, good county will get their heads together and formulate some practical plan to secure the much ueeded (food roads. Dallas has a population of and when a country Arkansaw mau like me irets in there and turning its cor- ! ners, and it a wet town at that, and me from a county so dry you cau't bite, 1 had to be careful to keep inv eyes open and not tfet run over by the electric cars or taken in by some smart Aleck who lays around cities • >f that 8Î7.»· and makes his living off I greenies like me. One good man from Red Oak, who was not sus pecting anything wrong, this winter handed about one hundred dollars of his cold cash to onn of this slick ire η try and that was riirht here in Dallas. Scartf A O'Connor run a wholesale paper house in Dallas. We trad·- with them and it is natu ral for a country fellow when lie gets into a big city where no one I seems to pay any more attention to h'irn than if he was a cur doir, to go right straight to where lie knows some one, and that is what we did hunted up that paper house quick and f<-lt better when in there, ami they called us by our rijrht names, looked at us straight and asked us to bave seats. A great many things to see in Dal las t<> interest people. The auto mobile as it flies up and down the asphalt pavement without the aid of horse flesh or any other motive power that can be seen, is a wonder to a countryman like me. After gazing at the-e wonderful sights, buying me a banana and some red candy and peeping in at a door or j twit where they sell "liker" that in' a si«jht to me now , we boarded a Houston A· lex us Central train for Sherman, tk"j miles north of Dallas and after getting out of the little | skirt of black jacK sand ruff in Kast j and North Dallas, we again strike! the black land and on through Rich-1 ardson and Piano, through Collin j county, by Allen to McKinney, the county seat, situated in the midst of as fine black land as the world af fords and it is a little city of four or ι five thousand now andirrowing rap-1 iuly. Tremendous big wheat fields loom up green and pretty as far as ι the eye can reach from the car win- ' dow and on up through Melissa and Anna, both clean, bright, new paint ed towns to Howe in Grayson coun ty and they say this piace ship· more wheat and oats than any other station in Texas andthe recent snow which fell up here in North Texas to a depth of six inches, the farm ers say, almost insures them a boun tiful wheat crop this season. We arrived at Sherman between 1 and 3 o'clock. This is now a city of flf-1 teen thousand. The Kidd Key and 1 Austin colleges, the former for girls ' »nd tiie last named for boys, besides I *everal other colleges and a great ι number of public ichools make this the best scnool town in Texas, but like Waxahachie and all Ellis coun-1 ty the loblollies are all over town) and country up here. It was Satur day evening and the sun was shin ing and Sherman was lull of farn4 ers from the surrounding country. They have a prohibition election on hand in Grayson county which, comes off 7th of March and it never ! fail· to put ginger in tbe people wherever a prohibition election ic called off. Denlson, only 9 miles north of Sherman is a city with a population equal to Sherman and a Sard close fight is on hand. It la ocly four miles^rom Denison to the In&an Territory. Grayson coeixty is ·>»ο of the eStfcffeme North Texas count!*»? and it Wo is a very fine county Ai.i densely populated. In circulating through Sherman 1 ran on to Dr. \Vo*?ey and Mr. Ryburn, our former county surveyor and a Mr. Redmond who is up here train ing horses. These gentlemen all formerly lived in Waxahaehie and I was glad to meet tnem They all take the Enterprise and said they had Just been looking at my picture and reading the news from grand old Ellis connty. Almost every man who every lived in Ellis county un less hé did some deviltry and had to run away from here would like to get back if he could. Hon J. W. HI at? f, whom 1 have known for years and is a prominent banker up there now, was the first man I struck and I crossed my number tens and smoked a good cigar with him and talked of the good old days when he and I lived in the same town in the sandy lands. It makes a fellow feel good when he is close by big gobs of greenbacks whether he gets to han dle them or not. We, in our rush missed our dinners, but at Mr. Gor man's, Kent's brother-in-law's hos pitable home, we devoured a splen did supper. Mrs. Gorman has been reading our paper for several years and she was prepared to appease that ravenous appetite I am known to carry with me. Mr. Gorman is a prosperous hardware man at Sher man. VVith the former county sur veyor. Ryburn, we spent a pleasant niifht. i4e and his splendid, clever family made us feel at home and we enjoyed our stav till Sunday noon and put in the Sabbath morning looking over the schools and build ings and handsome churches that town is noted for. 1 had In my ov ercoat pocket my Sunday School book. I looked this over and this act 1 hope overcame the evil of a Sunday from home. CANCER CI' RED! ! Mr. \V. VV. Prickett, Smithfield, Ills., writes, Sept. 10th, 1901: "1 had been suffering sevt-ral years with a cancer on my face, which Kave me great annoyance and un bearable itching. 1 was using Bal lard's Snow Liniment for a sore leg, and through an accident, I rubbed some ot the liniment on the cancer, and it gave nie almost in stant relief, I decided to continue to use the liniment on the cancer. In a short time the cancer came out, niy face healed up and there is not the slightest scar left. I have implicit faith in the merits of this ^reparation, and it cannot be too lighly recommended." 25c, ôOc and $1.00. For sale bv Hood A Martin. POULTRY. A gentleman with a large expe rience in poultry raising wisely says: "The dunghill served its day and generation very well; but profit in poultry now is possible only with well-bred fowls." First determine: which branch of the business suits s j ou best, poultry for the market or j eggs. If you want eggs and eggs ; only then select Leghorns or some one of the Spanish breeds. Ham- ! burgs are good layers, but are small, j There are six varieties of Leghorns j and Hamburgs, differing very little; from each other, it any, only in plu- j mage and comb. There ar»* also Hou dans, Mack Spanish, La Flech·· and Polish, all good layers and non setters. Jiint here a word of cau tion: Remember that poultry like everything else to do well must have attention. Don't buy a few fine chickens or eggs and turn tliem loose on the farm and expect K'reat things of them without giving them some good common house attention. Proper shelter and I proper feed are essential even in this mild climate. Don't try to raise too many breeds unless you are well prepared for it and expect to give them good close attention. Don't cross the breeds. (iet the breed that suits you a"'* stick to it. If you want chicks for spring market-*'hoose Plymouth Rocks or Wyandotte». Thechicksare hardy, feather up nicely and make nice broilers when eight to twelve weeks old. Plymouth Rocks are deserved ly popular, especially with farmers; are good layers all the year, good sitters, good mothers, are good for fall or winter market; in fact, are the best all-purpose fowls to have. The Wvandottes are rapidly coming into public favor and are of superior merit. «The ditfereut varieties of game breeds are hardy, active, good foragers, good layers, good sitters, excellent mothers and are splendid table lowls, but their war like qualities make them unsuitable for extensive production. Mr. French, a representative of the Fort Worth Packeiy, informs me that they will soon be prepared to handle all the poultry and egg· that Texas ma}* have to sell, and that good prices will ba paid tor same. He says that we will never any more see eggs selling at the discouragingly low price of the past. There are hundreds, yes, thous ands of large poultry plants in the Northern and Western States, some of which are employing quite a number of rneu to run them, and they, of course, are making good money out of the business. Why not have a few In Texas? 1 have agveed with Prof. J. H. Connelf to be with him ut m many Farmers' Institutes as possible and talk poultry. We moat stir up a little more enthusiasm on poultry raising In Texas. Brother, sister, help us. TEXAS AT THE WORLD'S FAIR) Not to be Represented Would be • Step Backward. The progressive element in Texas is nearly unanimous in favor of the bill now before the legislature call ing for an appropriation of $300,000 for the purpose of having Texas properly represented at the World's Fair to be held in St. Louis. Every important busin*?· organ ization in the state has endorsed the project, and the people generally are in favor of it. Not to have Texas represented at the (treat ex position would be a step backward. Such representation cannot be made as it should unless the state makes the appropriatioi desired. Other Southern States with one tenth the wealth of Texas, and witti resources insignificant in compari son with what this state has to ex ploit atid exhibit, have already made appropriations. Id Memoriatn. Tribute of respect to the memorj of Mrs. Will i'olnilexter. Whereas, it has pleased God in His allwise wisdom to take from uh Mrs. Claude Collier Poindexter, we, in humble resignation to His divine, will, offer the following tribute to her memory: Resolved 1st, That in losing her, the Ladies Aid Society of the Main Street Christian church has lost one of its brightest and most helpful members, one whose name was synonymous of charity and all good qualities. Resolved 2nd, That in her death The Aid loses one of its must ci <erful members, faithful and kind, ever ready to respond, with willing heart and ready hands, where duty called, but God has said to her "Come up higher" and the flower of her womanhood lias been trans planted to bloom In the gardens eternal, leaving behind the sweet Influence of her life. Resolved 3rd, That we tender the bereaved husband and little son our sincerest sympathy, realizing that no words of ours can alleviate his sorrow and distregg, and point him as she did to Him who "doeth ail things well."
