I >· ' ii cl i 11Κ for a h issue of $2.'o.ftoo of

issuing the bonds any part of the
proceeds could be used for work with

Hillsboro, connecting the proposed
pike roads as they enter the city by
'building up the Htreets. lu reply to
an inquiry upon the subject address
ed to the Attorney General by Capt.
William Λ. Fields, Office Assltant
J T. Sluder. after setting forth the
provision of the amendment to Art.
III . Sec. 52, of the state constltut
jtion, adopted Nov. 8, 1904, and of
[tho act of the thirtieth législature
I of 1907 seeking to put into effect
the amended article, but which was
I held Inoperative, gives the following
I as the opinion of the department on
'the subject:
"In 1909 the thirty-first legisla
ture enacted a law putting into ef
fect this amended provision of the
constitution and curing the defects
in the act of 1907. (Chapter 7, page
j 271, ai ts of thirty-first legislature,
[first called session.)
In the establishment of these dis
tricts the commissioners' court may
include towns, cities and villages.
Such towns, cities and villages would
necessarily be taxed to pay any bond
issue upon tho district. It would
certainly be a very strange construc
tion of the law to forbid the expen
diture of the funds arising from the
sale of the bonds of the district in
any part of the municipality or mu
nicipalities included within the dis
trict when the entire property of the
district included in these municipal
ities must be taxed alike to pay the
indebtedness. It would certainly be j
absurd to conclude that a city or1
town or village could be included in
the district and taxed for the bene
fit of an indebtedness and at the
same time denied the benefits of any
Improvements which they might
need within the incorporated limits
of such municipality.
"It is therefore the opinion of the
department that in the establish
ment of road improvement districts,
including municipalities of any
kind, whether incorporated or

' and improvements
the [uoi^eds of a bond

Get the lumber situation. The
j old law- the Dingley law -required
lumber entering our ports to pay $2
I per thousand. The house, at the re
Icent session, cut this to $1. An
effort was made, however, to admit
j lumber free, and our Mr. Henry
: supported this proposition. When
ι he bill got into the senate, a motion
! was made to increase the house rate
from $1 to $1.50. Mr. Bailey voted
for this Increase and it prevailed.
W'hi η the bill went to the çonfer
. ne.· committee, the president took
a hand and induced the committee to
put the rate at $1.25. This is the
crux of the controversy between
Henry and Bailey, the one favoring
duty-free lumber and the other fa- !
voring the higher as against the low- ;
er rate. Henry contends that lum- j
ber. even to us here iu Texas, is ,
higher in price by reason of this tax; )
Bailey said at Hillsboro that "If you ι
were to reduce the price of iunibor j
In the great northwestern markets, j
the effect, if any at all, would be to;
raise the price here." If the tariff be
a tax, as Mr. Bailey contends, then

A ship is curious altogether: a
place of narrow limits and close
contact, yet full of subterranean |
depths from which surprises may
develop at any moment. Ship life,
on the whole, is not like other life, ;
and ship characteristics do not al
together resemhle those on land,
says Outing Magazine. Anything
special in that line is pretty sure to j
develop on a cruise like this, and a j
ship estimate of the aevrage |
human being would hardly j
be fair to the same Individ- ;
ual at home. It is such an idle life— j
such an irresponsible life, sooner
or later the ego is bound to leap in- j
to the saddle and go the gait, some-j
times to the comfort, often to the !
entertainment, now and then to the !
sorrow, of the other passengers. j
Take the Porpoise, for instance. :
I have 110 doubt that the Porpoise on |
land is a most excellent and indus-1
trions business man, more or less ,
absorbed in the daily round of his I
ventures- a happy-hearted, content-]
ed Hebrew person, fairly iiuiet (it!
doesn't seem possible, but 1 am ί
willing to believe it), on the whole'
a good citizen," satisfied if his name
appears now and then in the local
paper, when lie has got in some new
line of goods or made an improve
ment on his home.
Htu on shipboard tne forpoise is
just—a porpoise. Ho is fat, as liis
name implies, and describes revolu
tions of the ship, blowing constantly.
At no time of day and in no part of '
the ship will you be safe from the j
Porpoise. He is from an interior
town, an unimportant town, by its
census and location, but it has be- j
come important on this vessel. We j
know all about that town. We shall I
never know as much about the I
towns we are going to visit as we 1
kpow already about that one, which
none of the rest of us ever saw, and j
few of us ever heard of before.
He has Instructed us upon oiherj
subjects, too. Nothing is too compli
cated, or too deep, or too nbtruse for
the Porpoise. He will attack any
question at sight, and he will puff
and spout and describe circles and
wallow in his oratory, and follow
his audience about until he has
swept the deck clean. Yet we love
the Porpoise, in spite of everything.
Hi is so happy and harmless and
gentle, and we know that it is only
because he Is on a ship that he is
like this.
Also, we love the "Mill." The Mill
is a woman—a good woman—one
of the kindest souls on earth. I sus
pect, and her mouth is her warrant
for her name. It goes ail the time,
but it does not deal with important
things. Indeed, nothing is too un
mpoitanl fur her hopper, and she
;rlnds exceedingly small Just now.
'or mi hour or so, she has been ex
daiuhig thai she did not sleep very
veil last night, and minutely cata
oging 'he reasons why. She will keep
t tip for another hour and then if
lomething hasn't dropped her over
man! she will dig up nomething else
>f equal value «»<J go right on, re
'reshed and rejoicing in the con
iciousness of well doing.
The Mill would not aet in this way
it home —she would not have time,
t is only because she is on a ship
where everybody is idle and irres
ponsible and "different," and likely
:o be peculiar.
Interesting Survivors of the San
Francisco Fire.
A difficult undertaking and one
which required the work of six men
for nearly two weeks was recently
iccomplished in California, when
two tbirty-foot palms were moved
from the abandoned residence of
II. K. Huntington, on the top of Nob
Hill. San Francisco, and transported
i distance of f>00 miles to his new
residence at Los Robles, near San
Gabriel, Cal.
Palm moving is a common occur
rence in California, says Horticul
ture, but. it is not likely that any
have ever been moved so great a
distance with so much success. Each
palm when boxed weighs eighteen
tons and a string of ten horses were
required in order to transport the
palms to the railroad station, a dis
tance of two miles, through some of
the busiest streets in San Francisco.
The palms figured were also of
more than ordinary interest to the
citizens of San Francisco, having
stood there for more than twenty
years. In addition to this fact they
might be classed as most interesting
relics of the earthquake-fire of l!lOti.
at which time Mr. Huntington's mag
nificent residence was destroyed,
along with everything in that dis
The tire stripped the palms com
pletely of their foliage, leaving only
the bare and blackened stems. Since
that time In the course of three
years fresh growth has been made
by them, new well developed crowns
have appeared and they bid fair to
become two of the most interesting
objects on the Huntington estate.

The public statement of tlieir exper
ience is proof the like of which has
never been produced before in Wax·

by a citizen:
W. A. Bratton, farmer, formerly
of Waxahachie, Texas, says: "The
case which led me to publicly en
dorse Doan's Kidney Pills over three
years ago was one of kidney weak
ness. A member of my family had
very weak kidneys and was unable
to control the passages of the secre
tions which were scanty, highly col
ored and filled with sediment. The
doctors medicines failed to give any
relief and we had almost given up
hopes of ever being able to cure the
complaint when Doan's Kidney Pills
were brought to our attention. We
procured a supply at B. W. Fearls
drug store and three boxes made a
complete cure. Only on one occasion
since then has there been any return
of the trouble At that time the con
traction of a cold was the cause but
I am pleased to say that one box of
Doan's Kidney Pills removed the at
tack. I am pleased to re-endorse
Donn's Kidney Pills as they are cer
tainly a valuable remedy."

To Kxtend I'tlca Southern.
Albany, Ν. Y., Sept. 8.—Further
consideration was given by the
Public Service Commission, second
district, today to the petition of the
I'tlca Southern Railroad company
for authority to Increase its capital
frbm $600,000 to $1,000,000, the in
crease to be preferred stock, and to
issue $968,000 additional scrip, of
which $568,huO is to be common
stock. The company also wants to
issue $1,820,000 bonds under a
mortgage on its property, and asks
approval of a proposed line from
Hamilton, Madison county, to Nor
wich, Chenango county.
The Lackawanna and Ontario &
Western railroads have withdrawn
their opposition to the project. Chair
man Stevens said the commission
would not allow an item of $102,000
capitalization for an embankment
along the right of way for twenty
two miles covering th old towpath of
the abandoned Chanango Canal.
