A hundred years ago It was possi
ble for a man with an ordinary mind
and a fair education to obtain a work
ing knowledge of all the science and
arts Then the world began to spec
ialize and tills became Impossible
Yet fifty years ago while a man
might not have grasped a good work
ing knowledge of astronomy steam
engines and agricultural science to
gether gtill ho ro lhayefcent closo
track of the progress being made In
all scientific and industrial lines and
have had personal knowledge of each
center of activity
But fifty years more went by and
the industrial development today is
so vast and rapid that a man with a
mind like Platos or Herbert Spencers
couldnt even keep track of develop
ments as they are reflected in the
daily papers the magazines the scien
tific Journals the census statistics
It takes an active mind to keep track
of what is going on in even one in
dustry You step out of your little
shell of environment Into a Pullman
a hotel lobby or any place where
lines of acltvlty crisscross and in a
halfhour by merely keeping yom
ears open get an insight into enough
different channels of material pro
gress to make your own trifle of
knowledge seem hardly worth men
tioning in such company And still
you have only blundered on a uny
corner When any one asserts that
opportuntles are all gone In an Indus
trial cosmos like that it seems safe
to assume says the Saturday Evening
Post that he hasnt been around
much and that his assertion Is unit
ing more than generality a suspicion
based on few facts
The Palestine Board of Trade is
anxious to do everything possible to
assist the farmer in handling his cot
ton crop as well as all other crops
The board Is especially Interested in
the handling of the cotton crop Just
now because it is regarded as the
greatest money crop and the crop
over which more dissatisfaction In
handling lias been experienced in the
past than any of the other crops
grown and marketed
Palestine business people are not
unmindful of the fact that all true
wealth originates with the soli that
the whole commercial world Is de
pendent on the farmers And that to
please the farmers of the county Is to
gain their friendship and a mutual
advantage In buying and selling
The cotton business was handled In
a most satisfactory manner last year
and resulted in an increased business
for Palestine people Plans are now
making for an improvement over last
year and as a natural sequence Pal
estine merchants are going to do a
good business and fanners of the con
tlgiious territory are going to be
pleased at the outcome
No town In Texas Is making
more substantial progress than is Pal
estine There has been a great
amount of building done here within
the past two or three years and there
are a great number of houses now
building and many more to come In
fact never before In the citys history
has so much been done at one time
as now and the buildings that are in
course of completion or erection and
to he erected are more substantial
and modern In every essential
Palestine contractors haxe their
hands full and all the mechanics in
every line are exceedingly husy
There is no nine foot bed sheet law
g tij temMi aa
Tho Hamilton Boys Yon Know
Among freemen
there should be no
masters but Justice
and duty and love of
right and fellowman
In Texas After all that was said and
done and after all the Jokes cracked
on Texas because of this proposed leg
islation the bill was never enacted
notwithstanding all reports to the con
trary It was a good law and could
have been passed with credit to the
state but It did not pass
We pass up the pass
It is dry and dusty and dry
That farmer who Is diligently ap
plying cultural methods has no fears
of the boll weevil taking his crop
Now If the city council and the city
officers will only have the backbone
to enforce that sidewalk ordinance
When a mans business affairs be
gin to go wrong his wife thinks II is
because he doesnt follow her advlct
Palestine is very dry today Some
men with the liablt do not know what
to do with themselves with the sa
loons closed against them
There are hundreds of people In
Palestine who never dreamed they
would live to see Palestine under pro
hibition even for a period of twenty
The police force had Just as well
lay off for twenty days With the sa
loons all closed there will be nothing
doing There was almost nothing do
ing before
Just suppose now that that State
railroad should pass Palestine up
Wouldnt It jar you And that very
tiling may happen Great Influences
are at work to carry the road Crockett
There are Palestine people now buy
ing railroad tickets who never did
such a thing before In all their lives

The Big Sandy Herald describes a
prevailing malady among a certain
class of people In the following unique
manner The big head Is a populiir
way of expressing a common and very
frequent ailment It arises from va
rious sources but the real foundation
is the lack of sense A little money

exercise a little authority Is often the
cause of it while others get It by hav
ing a little better Job than their a
sociatcs The truth Is no sensible
