most unheard of prices The result
has been to leave the section in a
most prosperous condition This is
not only true as a direct result but
the circumstance has also turned
many anxious eyes toward East Texas
and it is predicted that the next few
months will witness a great influx of
good people into East Texas This
will mean more farmers more lands
in cultivation and a more permanent
Present conditions with the high
prices on almost all necessities make
farm life more attractive and the
farmer Is becoming more and more
the most independent man in the
world In the first place he has been
able for some time now to command
top prices for all of his products and
yet he can get along with a smaller
store account than any of us An in
dustrious man cultivating his own
lands can come pretty near making
his living without having to buy over
the counter and while saving in this
way can produce for the market the
things that bring him good money
As to Palestine the outlook here
too is good The business people
have done a good business and are in
good shape for the coming year Our
people as a class are contented and
most all of us feel a deep interest in
the future of our town and are striv
ing to improve conditions
The Herald extends a word of good
hope and wishes for all a prosperous
and happy New Year
He has been a most careless oh
server of the trend of public senti
ment during the last few years who
has not observed the rapid crystal
zation of
In dayst not far back leading pro
fessional men those standing in the
front ranks of their various profes
sions could indulge in strong drink
to excess without loss of practice or
prestige but the same action now
would be visited by withdrawal of all
It has not been long since no rail
road manager pretended to interfere
with the conduct of his men in the
matter of going Into saloons and drink
ing but now there are many railroads
on which no engineer is allowed to
touch the lever of a locomotive who
has taken even one drink
This change In public sentiment
has been brought about in large meas
ure by economic reasons Science and
experience have proved the harmful
effect of the use of alcoholic liquors
in lessening the capacity of men for
hard and intelligent labor
It has long been the rule with many
of the largest benevolent organiza
tions that no liquor dealer or any
man connected in any way with the
sale of liquor can become a member
and now one of the greatest labor
organizations has put upon the liquor
business the seal of its condemna
tion This is a most significant mani
festation of the great change of sen
timent toward a question which in
one form or another is always to the
Unfortunately the laboring men
the wage earners of the United
States and indeed of all the world
have been the steadiest and most
profitable to the sellers patrons of
the saloon and they and their wives
and families have been the greatest
sufferers from the use of alcoholic
liquors and when such an organiza
tion as the United Mine Workers puts
the liquor traffic under the ban it
means much for the betterment of
social and economic conditions
The head of that great organiza
tion says In our constitution we
have a clause which forbids any mem
ber to sell intoxicants even at a pic
nic That is what we think of the
liquor traffic Because the liquor
traffic tends to enslave the people to
make them satisfied with improper
conditions to keep them ignorant
the leaders of the trades union move
ment are called upon to fight the sa
loon We believe that the trades
unions are doing more for the cause
of temperance than any other insti
tution in the world
When the membership of an order
composed of tens of thousands of in
telligent workmen put In the const
tion under which the work of the or
der Is done a prohibition against en
tering upon the business of liquor
selling more is then and there done
for the cause of temperance than
can be done by prohibitory laws
however rigid
Such action reveals that those who
so legislate have realized thoharmful
effect of indulgence in alcoholic
liquor and appreciate the evils which
flow from the traffic Deliberate ac
tion taken without excitement or
emotion will have farreaching and
longenduring effect Houston Chron
The plain fact is that drinking is
no longer the fashion For several
reasons it has dawned on many peo
ple that it is neither profitable nor
very respectable to drink and they
have cut it out Too many men
have found their employment hinges
on the ability to use intricate machin
ery and keep a clear head and they
have found that intoxicants do not
help In keeping a clear head As
the science of labor progresses as
more perfect machinery comes into
use and as better skill is demanded
liquor will grow less and less pop
ular until no man who hopes to take
a responsible standing in the profes
sions or the trades can afford to as
sociate with old barley corn
The real origin of the greatest fake
hero story ever told has come to light
in a scrap book owned by an old
resident of Washington according to
the Star
A group of revolutionary heroes
were standing before an old bar In
Washington and from the lips of each
there fell wqnderous stories of what
he had done in the shock of battle or
the frenzy of the charge Finally one
old fellow with long white whiskers
I was personally acquainted with
George Washington
I was lying behind the breast
works one day pumping lead into the
Britishers when I heard the patter of
a horses hoofs behind me Then
came a voice

aim Look here a moment

The Herald comes into the New
Year with the kindliest feeling for all
people Whatever criticism the Her
ald may indulge in with reference to
public nffails is based on a desire to
accomplish good and not as a means
of venting any personal spite This
paper does not believe in personal
journalism and tries to keep its col
umns free from anything that smacks
of personal attacks but on the other
hand it believes it is clearly within
its right and duty when It calls atten
