Had Not Reed the Terrell Election Law
Providinq for Holdinq Conventions.
It is generally supposed that the
j disciples of HIackstoue and (Jreen
leaf know all things, but if they
! had (riven the Terrell election law a
careful perusal they would have
■ discovered the feet that it was ille
gal to hold a district convention on
any day except the fourth Saturday
in July. S"en:ingly having over
looked this provision of the law
a large number of delegates, the
majority of th< m lawyers, met a'
Dallas yesterday morning to hold
a convention for the purpose ot
formally nominating a chief justice
and associate justice of the Court
of Civil Appeals for the fifth su
preme judicial district. Jud,.-'· A. ·
son Rainey, wiio is to be the nomi
ne»· for chief justice, deferred start
ing on his summer trip to the
North until after hie formal nomi
nation, and Judge J. M. Talbot, the
associate justice, came all the way
from his home at Texaikana to be
present at the convention. The del
egates met at the courthouse and
were about ready to organize and
proceed with business when it ;was
suggested that the convention was
being held contrary to the Terrell
election law. Forthwith a copy of
this sacred statute was brought in
to the convention and its pages eag
erly scanned. The delegates were
soon convinced that they were not
acting under the authority of the
law, and alter railing the conveij-;
".ion to meet next Saturday they de- î
parted for their several homes.

She Tried Five Doctors.
Mrs. Frances L. Sales, of Missou
ri Valley, la., writes, "I have been
