Hundreds of Cars Shipped from Southwest Texas This Season. San Antonio, Texas, June 8.—Tex as onion growers have gone the men of the Bermuda islands one better and have produced a Texas Bermuda onion superior in flavor and hardi ness to the Bermuda Islands onion. Last summer the agent of the Texas Onion Growers visited the Bermuda islands and the Canary islands and secured a big consignment of seed. These seed have produced this year's onion crop in Texas of a greater size and of a fine quality. Whereas, it was formerly estimat ed that the Bermuda growers ship ped a million crates of onions to this country annually, it is now estimated that their shipment this year amounted to about 380,000 crates. Some 750 carloads of onions have been shipped out of Southwest Tex as already and the movement is not yet over. It is estimated that over a thousand car loads will be shipped. These have brought prices at first as high as six and seven hundred dol lars a carload before the competi tion of other onions came in, but now are bringing from four to $500 a carload. The gross returns of the onion crop in this part of Texas will be over a million dollars this year; this does not Include the amount sold and consumed at home. A few days ago a whole shipload of onions left Gal veston for Atlantic coast ports. At the present rate that the growers are prospering. Texas in a few years will have a class of onion million aires. Quite a number of farmers from different parts of the county were in attendance upon the first day's ses sion of the board. It is understood that they will enter vigorous pro tests against any further increase in the rendition placed on their prop erty Fell From Wagon and Hurt. News came here Monday morning that Mr. B. C. Lancaster, who re sides in Arlington Heights, was quite painfully hurt on his farm near Ovilla. It is said that while he was hauling oats Monday morning he fell from a loaded wagon, striking the ground on his head and shoulders. The full extent of the injuries was not ascertained, but Mr. Lancaster's friends here hope they will prove of no serious consequence. * · » I.OC AL· NEWS ♦ Λ * ! »*·>«· <*·«♦> A new song at the Empire. 55 Montgomery, photographer. tf j Hood & Curlin rent kodaks. 56 P.

One of the most unusual as well as' one of the most beautiful sights ever j witnessed in Waxahachie was that of j the meeting Sunday night at the Methodist church. Six hundred men packed the right hand side of the church while a thousand ladies filled the remaining space of the auditor ium and the Sunday school room. Dr. Walton announced that there would be a special meeting for wom en only next Sunday afternoon and ι one for men only Sunday night. The) audience listened with breathless si-1 lence as the evangelist spoke on the I "Priesthood of Jesus.' There is noth ing sensational about the speaker, but he doesn't hesitate to say exact ly what he thinks and sometimes in words that would seem pretty hard if It were not for the fact that the audience can see that he is dead in earnest and not making a show. j The sermon Sunday morning is | declared by many to be the strong-1 est delivered in Waxahachie in many I years, but the one Sunday night cap tivated the crowds completely. In the afternoon at 3 o'clock Mr. Jolly met with the young people for the first time and the meeting was a success. Mr. Jolly seemed to be able to get the little ones to do anything he asked. At the same time there was a meeting at the Baptist church of all committees which lasted two and a half hours and in which the mem bers from the various churches took on renewed zeal and energy. A feature of all the meetings is and will be the music. Seldom has such singing been heard here as was rendered Sunday by the quartette, j composed of Messrs. LeBlond, Jolly, Smith and Works. They have already been requested to repeat the number they sang In the morning. The so loists, Messrs. Smith and Jolly, show in their every movement that their one ambition is to save souls and It is evident they are not singing for entertainment. Just before the sermon Sunday 1 night Dr. Walton called on Mr. J. O. I Sims, Jr., cashier of the First Na ! tional Bank of Orange, to make a ' few remarks about the meeting just ! closed there. He said: I think the people of Waxahachie I should congratulate themselves on j being able to have Dr. Walton and I his associates here. No one can ever j measure the good accomplished In our city. The work among the mer. was one of the most encouraging j features of the meeting. Also the im | petus given to the Sunday school work through the young peoples' meeting was a revelation to all oS ! us. I am sure you will have the j prayers of the Christians of Orange in this noble work you ha»e under taken." I There are to be about twenty-five prayer meetings held early Tuesday morning !n different homes and the places of the meetings will be an nounced tonight. ; At 10 a. m. Tuesday Dr. Walton I will speak at the Methodist church. At 3 p. m. Mr. Jolly will speak to young people and at 7:45 the regu , lar evening service will be held.
