A petition signed by the required
number of property owners in l.ev<e
Improvement Distric t No. 2 of Ellis i
county has beet! presented to tbe j
commissioner*' court asking for a|
hearing on Novc tuber 3 to determine |
whether or not an election shall be]
called to vote additional bonds fori
the enlargement of the levee and:
completion of same. The property]
owners In this ctlstrlci voted $120,-.
non bonds during 1!*15 to build this]
leree. but at that 'lm< it was thought!
that a ten foot le ee would be suf
ficient. but since the levee in district J
No. 1 is fourteen feet high the rva ]
ter pressure will he too great and
It is deemed iiest to raise the lever
in district No. 2 to fourteen or six- ]
teen feet in places.
The constructing engineer has esti- ^
mated the additional cost at $15,-;
00*' and It is now proposed to hold
an election to determine v hether or
not this amount of bonds shall be
issued. The construction of the
levei will rec laim many acres of very i
fertile valley land and Is believed to ,
be one of the very best investments)
that property owners could make.
The court has set November II as
the date for a hearing to determine
whether or not the election will be'
held and all property owners will
be notified to participate in said
election.
ISIME FUNDS TO PIT
BAND TO PLAT IT DALLAS
-i
A movement was starred this af-1
ternoon by Farm Demonstration
Agent D. 1) Floyd to raise $10n
with w hic h to take the waxahachie j
band to Dallas on Saturday for the
Boys' Corn and Pig club rally. In j
a mass meeting of the citizens fol-1
lowing the noonday luncheon he
proposed that volunteers aid him in |
raising the money needed to take
the band to Dallas and Messrs. H.
Nr. Naylor, Jack Tucker, Dr. Parnell,
W. G. McClain and K. H. Davis vol
unteered to give him aid.
It was stated by such men as!
\V. M Mincey, S. \V. Durham, G. C.'
Groce, Dr. Parnell and others that i
the band and the Boys’ Pig and Corn I
clubs represented two. of the agen
eies which are doing the greatest,
amount of good in Ellis county just
now. It was agreed that there were
only a few things that could be en
gaged in that would do more good j
to all the people than the training 1
of boys in scientific farming meth
ods and stock raising. Second only
to this agricultural work comes the j
Waxahachie band which, perhaps, is
doing even more than the Hoys’ Pig
and Corn clubs to put Waxahachie
on the map. The Corn club and the
Pig club is doing a great deal to
ward putting Ellis county on tlie
map but the band is a city enter
prise.
it was propost d tiiat the commit
tee make a hurried canvass of the
city tins afternoon and lake sub
scriptions in an effort to raise $100
with which to pay the band for this
engagement. When the committee
calls on you lie ready to give some
thing. There is no doubt but that the
Waxahachie hand is the largest and
best organization of its kind in Tex
as. Let's have it on display at the
fair next Saturday.
