W.A.OWNBY : City Editor (Re«idence Phone, Bell No. 289.) There Is plenty of room In Waxa hachie for more factory smoke stacks. Legislation that will encourage Industrial development is what Tex as needs just now. A dinner bucket procession Is what makes a town. Too much stress is placet! on the farmer. Build fac tories. One of the worst pieces of roacj in Ellis county is soon to be macadam ized. We refer to Dunn's lane. A fen citizens and the county are gen erously defraying the expenses. The municipal government and the busi ness men should continue this work , into the city. As Waxahachie hi.s no smoke or- ; dinance it would be welcome news to see smoke boiling from the smokestacks of an overall factory, ' tent and awning factory, and num- j erous other industrial plants. She has the goods and railroad facilities for their prompt delivery to all parts ; of the country. A copy of tilt* Texas Commercial J Secretaries' Bulletin lias reached ι this office The Bulletin contains a j symposium of the work being ac- j complished by conimerclal clubs in different parts of the state. Waxa hachie however, was not represent ed therein. The reason is obvious. 8h< has no commercial club. The buH^neee nu n of Waaaiachle ! are just as enterprising and public I spirited as may be found in any town in Texas, and they have done I a great deal to promote the commer- ! cial and industrial interests of the j city, but they could do more through ! a concert of action They should gel I together and organize a commercial | club, a trade league or chamber of j commerce. j As a result of action taken by the charter convention recently elected for the purpose of revising its mu ii Ipal government, It Is probable that Colorado Springs, Colo., will shortly join the ranks of American cities employing the commission form of government. The convention lias declared In favor of placing all power and authority In the hands of a council composed of a mayor and four other members and of abolish ing the ward system It is proposed to place the mayor In charge of the city's water system. At. the charter election, a ticket headed by women suffragists who sought representa tion iu the convention was defeated. ΜΙΜΙΚΑΙ>1 NO ΤΙΙΚ MOHT.

There is much in cttfrtmoiw be ■t%een them that Is best conserved by energetic co-operation, says the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. This from the esteemed Terrell Transcript, is one of many Hitch editorial expressions covering the new order of things: "The commercial club of Terrell has established an active co-operation between members of the club and the farmers in this section. If the club had done nothing else it would be entitled to the consideration and hearty support of the people of Ter rell." There are still a few Texttjj editors who refuse to see any level-headed ideas or public spirited 'benefits in the workings of the Commercial clubs of this state, but facts and figures will eventually mellow that view. Wherefore these progressive conclusions from the Ennis News will round out this paragraph very nicely: "The commercial secretar ies of Texas have done a good work already in their efforts to give scope for material progress and it is hop ed they may influence business san ity in the legislature so as to pre vent the passage of laws that would handicap investment of capital. The secretaries are not politicians. They are business men and It is not a question- with them of who may hold office. Their efforts are for ma terial benefits to the state sq, that Texas may occupy her rightful place in the nation. They know the feel ings of railroad investors and they see that if the legislature should es tablish a 2-cent passenger fare law it would check railroad building in Texas and thus effect every other line of business." HI'.NKY'S ANALYSIS OK (illAI I Francis J. Herify, the graft prose cutor of San Francisco, Is not one to make a public statement without authentic facts to back It. When He ney charges that Ε. H. llarrlr.ian, aa the head of the Southern Pacific railway, was chiefly responsible for the corruption of San Francisco, he speaks as one having authority. In deed, the corrupting Influence of ibis great corporation, before and after Harrlman gained control of it, has been notorious In California and throughout the nation, says the Kan sas City Star. Heney did not mean that Harrl man, or any other corporation head who combined with him to control state and municipal government, were "pals" with Huef and Schmitz and the boodlers under them. He meant that the graft system of Ruef and the "low brows" was the (Jirept offHhoot of the larger graft system by which public service corporations control politics and exploit the peo ple of their own advancement. The experience of San Francisco is not unique. In Pittsburg, St. Louis, Minneapolis, and wherever coarse boodllrie has assumed a viru lent form, the foundation of it has been the corrupting Influence of bigger privilege grabbers. This is logically and inevitably the case. The people have no use for boodlers. There never was a bribe given on behalf of the people. The boss is not useful to the people. He is needed to do the work that the heads of corporations, the brewers, etc.. can not take the time to do directly. And the same thing is true in state and nation as well as in the municipalities. When great interests graft through a tariff, or through beating the public out of taxes, or through gaining franchise privileges for less than they are worth, or through selling watered Stock, then the lesser order of grafter will be on hand to sell out his city or state -r ration. He is part of the system vihieh is controlled from the top. KOMI) IMII STI» Home industry and the Texas sample case are getting into the spotlight of editorial discussion. Kei ρ 'em ther<·. Speaking about (lie scheduled gathering of Texas manu facturers in Fort Worth, for the for mation of an organization intended to further home consumption of Texas products and promote the good work of the sample case the esteemed H row η w ood Democrat says: "Manufacturers from all over the state will me'jt in Fort Worth early in April to organize a state league and devise ways and means to ad vance the manufacturing interests In Texas. Tbih movement will doubt less be felt throughout the stoti+h " That's goo! Meanwhile the Beau mont Knterprlse puts this one over the home Industry plate: "Tl.e man ufacturers of Texas are to meet In Fort Worth in April to form an or ganization for fostering manufactur ing in the state. One of the things that should lie taken in hand should be a proposa η da on lines of patron age of home Industries." Co-opera tion and organization create wider markets and stimulate home patron age. I'nder such arrangements It's not an overly ambitious step from "tiOme markets to export business. Ou-operate, keep the factory stacks smoking and let Texas grow.—Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Τ Η Κ BAPTIST MEETING. Ilev. Nevins fs Heard by Large Audience Monday Night. A large crowd was in attendance at the Haptlst church last night and although It was Monday night, which is usually considered a bad night for a meeting, the interest was good. The pastors of the Methodist and Christian churches were pres ent and took part in the services The baptizing was postponed to to night. Before the sermon Mr Jolly sang "He's the One." The congrega tional singing Is a feature of the ser vices and a great deal of enthusiasjn is aroused during the. singing Pastor Nevins preached in part ι as follows: Text, 13th chapter Luke, 24th verse. "Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in and shall not be able." In one of the other gospels we are told "Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it." There are two roads, there are also two classes of people. Cod could come here and divide all the people m this room tonight. The saved He would place on the right hand. The lost on the left. But you say "I am not lost Yes you are. if you are not saved. Christ says "He that be lieveth not on me Is condemned al ready because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.' What could be plainer than this? On the other hand "He that, bellevth on the Son hath eternal life. These are Christ's own words Ihese two classes of people I have spoken of are different not only In regard to their salvation but in their attitude towards Christ. Take for example one woman who is lost and one who is saved. The one who Is saved may not be naturally any bet ter than the one not saved. What is the difference then? The difference Is 111 the foundation. The world doesn't understand that difference. I he man who has Jesus as his foun dation, though be may be naturally insignificant is head and shoulders over the man not saved. Those on the right hand have a I different attitude towards religious j things The man or woman not in I Christ is just drifting with the tide j Those who have the experience of having been bought with the pre cious blood of Christ, are fighting I against the stream. What do I mean ι by the stream? The natural tendency I to do wrong. If you are on the right , foundation you are going to win the victory over sin. That i,at tie begins when you become a christian. The text says. "Strive to enter In at the strait gate." This word "strive" is an interesting word. It is from a Creek word meaning the same as the Knglish word, agonize. Let us be In agony to enter In at the strait gate. No man ever entered in with out a struggle. V\'e must struggle with ourselves with the selfishness In the human heart. Jesus was the only one who ever lived who was not selfish. Don't get the idea you can be a christian and be what you were before you became a christian. Vftu cati I indulge in that selfish pleasure in selfish ease. There is something you have got to give up when you come ti Christ. There must be a surrender, a feeling that ''hrlst Is worth more than all these "'irics "Aeonize to enter In at the strait gate." I have seen this agony In men's faces, because there was '■omethlng they did not want to give up. I have seen them, too, turn away and like Judas ;ro out into the dark ness of the night because they were ♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦ ♦ f ♦ THR TCMPLK OP JIKTICK ♦ ♦ « Commissioner*' Court.

Then besides the struggle with sel fishness there must be also a strug gle with the world. The great sin of today, the sin of young people, is worldliness being like the world. A young mail once said a certain young lady was a remarkable young lady. He said he and another young man called on her one evening just before 7 o'clock. She arose and said. "Young men, you will have to ex cuse me ah we have our Kndeavor meeting at 7 o'clock. I must be there. 1 would be glad for you to go with me, if you can't I must be there anyway." Christianity for this young lady meant personal sacrifice for Christ. She was not carried away with the world. What a beautiful characteristic it is to see people faithful to their trust. Suppose every christian In Waxa hachie had the same Idea of fidelity to their Lord and Master instead of these godless young men spending their time on the streets, the young women would bring them to the churches, where they could hear the gospel. This responsibility lies large ly with the young women of this town. Worldliness Is the crime that has crept into ι he hearts of the young people. All hoiKir to the girl who is faithful to her Lord! Not only must there be a battle with selfishness and with the world but there must also be a bar tie fought with the devil, i mean sinful Influence—things sin ful In themselves. For example a young man or woman may be here with some besetting sin and long ago you would have come to Christ but you were unwilling to give this thing up. You must be willing to give it up or you can never have Christ as your savior or a home in heaven. When you get to that place where you can say, "Ο, I hate this sin, I come to you. Lord, to help me give this thing up!" Then you are agonizing Let us look for awhile at these two roads. One, we are tolld, is the strait road the word strait here does not mean not crooked, ft means narrow. This road b ads to life—and few will travel this road. The road that leads to death is a broad road and many travel this road. What makes this broad road so attractive? The devil has many things to attract us. Satan has put many beautiful dazzling lights there to lead us on. Not only this but Satan has provid ed music. Then there is the wine cup with Its ruddy glow, the mad dance—this is all beautiful at first —but what is the end of this.road? As you (ravel on you will II ml the end of the bar room, then further on the house of shame—th"n the asylum, further on the prison and just beyond this hell's gate, wide open. C.reat crowds are in this road and you are «oing because the crowd goes. People like to go with a crowd. If we could just show them the end of this road from the beginning! How different is the narrow road. We do not find crowds here. There are only a few. There are not the same attractions, perhaps, but ah! look at the end eternal life. And think of the company along this road. There Is father and mother and that godly old grandmother and then think, too. that long ago Jesus Christ went this road—we can almost trace the foot prints of his bleeding feet·—there are, too, so many blessings along this road. Which way are you traveling to night? 1 think of three men in the bible who will Illustrate three classes of people —Esau will represent one class. You remember he came in from hunting and his brother was making some soup. He was hungry and Ksail said "(live me some soup." Jacob said, "I will If you will sell me your birthright." Esau sold hia birthright for a momentary pleas ure. We are warned in God'e word j not to be like Esau. The wine cup. the dance and these things will rob you of your birthright. Balaam is an example of one who had good inten tions. yet he did the very thing h*i said he would not do. That ie the way some of you are. You are the kind of a person Satan wants to hold. Moses is an examp.e of ano ther class. He left Egypt and gav& up all this glory that he might serre God. Moses knew what was best. He ι could have spent his time in world lings in Egypt but he chose rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasure» of sin for a season, esteeming the reproach for Christ greater riches than the treasures In Egypt. Agon ize to enter In at the strait gate. We ought to obey God rather than man If God is calling you tonight let no j olher voice come in. There will be services each night I at 7:30 o'clock. Prayer meeting at ! 7 o'clock. Services at 10 In tho j morning. fcat!36* SHELTON OPERA HOUSE ï Wednesday, February 10th FIRST CYCLONIC TOUR OF THE NEW KU KLUX KLAN PLAY THE SEQUEL TO THE CLANSMAN DRAMATIC ENSEMBLE of 75 Most Complete Production and Electric»!
