TEXAS FEDERATION OF CLUBS
Educational Weeks to be Ob
served this Month.
The Texas Federatian of Women'·
Club» haa set apart the first and
Mcond week· in March to be ob
served throughout the state as Edu- .
In compliance with the sngges
tion of the President of Federation,
the Waxahachie Shakespeare club
voted to observe the first week in
March. This is being done by vis
iting the city public schools, not as
critics, but as friends and co-work
ers, and making a study of some of
the topics sugested by the Federa
tion. Topics with which every pa
triotic cltisen should acquaint him
or her self.
In response to a call from the
president, the club met Wednesday
afternoon, March 4, for the discuss
ion of these subjects. After the
club was called to order Prof. W.
L. Acker and County Superintend
ent E. D. Criddie, who were present
by invitation of me club, gave most
interesting and instructive talks
upon "The School Fund of Texas,"
"Condition of Local Schools," and
"Bural Schools,""The New Move
metis in Karal Schools" respect - i
Mrs. 8. P. Skinner, chairman of I
committee to visit schools, read re-1
port of committee, In which the j
present management and progress)
of city schools were highly com-1
mended, but the crowded, unaani-j
tary condition of rooms greatly de
plored. Mr·. W. L. Harding, a
member of aauie committee, read
an Interesting paper urging the cry
ing need of m»re end better build- j
inga. The result of the meeting wu 1
an awakened enthuaiaam on the part
of membera, and the paaaing of a
reaolulion to preaent a petition to
the city council for uieaaurea which
will afford relief to the preaent
condition of affaira in the public
It la the «arueat wlah of the club
that every mother, with children |n
the public school, might aign this
petition, but owing to the condition

HT THE TEMPLE 9F JUSTICE
Jury in the District Court Dis'
missed for the Week,
Practically no business of any im
portance lias been transacted in the
district court this week. On ac
count of the continued rains and the
(earful condition of the county roads
it is almost impossible for witness
es in the more important civil suits
to get to Waxahachie. The jury for
this week was called into court this
morning and dismissed for the week.
All cases set for this week were
either passed over or continued
until· next term of court.
In the county court yesterday af
ternoon a young mail named Woods,
who was on trial on the cnarge of
carrying a pistol, was found not

I see in the Light β "Petition to
the city conncil to order an elec
tion to cee whether or not the city
would float enough bonds to build
ward academies of modern date and
make, and to displace the Park
building as an academy."
It would take near *<0,000 or $40,
000 to build these several academies
of modern date; it would take three
or four times as many teachers as
at present to run these schools;
their salaries must come from some
where, they cannot live on poetry,
romance and air. We have a rail
road debt of something near $40,
000, of which wo are reminded every
year by our tax receipt. To place
these schools on a modern basis, it
would take in the neighborhood of
$40,000 or 900,000, and together with
the railroad debt would be to ask
the city of Waxahachie to assume a
debt of $<>0,000 or 170,(ιΪΛ, at least,
and not a dollar in the city treas
ury. Now in consideration of a fail
ure of crops last year and the out
look not bright for a crop this year,
and the extreme scarcity of money
circulating in the city, I think this
petition ought to be indefinitely
postponed; for when farmers fail to
make crops, towns and cities fail to
have money; for the reason that
farming is the basis of all prosper
ity. When it fails everything else
fails. I am in favor of schools, but
prudence, judgment, economy aud
common sense ought to be the rul
ing thought in the creation and
maintenance of all schools. While]
1 favor schools, I equally oppose
bankrupt towns or cities.
I will offer a suggestion or a sub
stitute, if rou please. Let an expert
examine the Park school building,
point out its deficiencies of safety,
ι and its needs of accommodation for
pupils, and cost of the same, then
let an approximate estimate be made j
of the cost to put every sidewalk for
pvptv till nil
which would aid every pedestrian
also) in good shape, leading to this
grand central building with its beau
tiful 10 acre campus; then I will ad
vocate for the city to assume bonds
enough to consummate the ends of
this suggestion or substitute; then
you would have a building and side
walks that would add beauty, at
traction and splendor to any city,
and a standing monument for the
cause of education.
City Fathers, this petition before
you calls upon the tax payers of
this city to confront a grave ques
tion, viz : to assume a debt of thou
sands of dollars, and not a cent of
money to meet it. City Fathers,
