MAKING AN INVESTMENT
he writer is not a land capitalist
v
but if he was and wanted to get good
and permanent returns on his money
invested he would speedily set about
co lonlzing his land by cutting it up
into suitable tracts of from fifty to
sixty acres and locating thereon a
colony of good German truck farmers
or some other class of progressive
farmers In fact it seems to us that
this would be a good work for a com
munity Few communities refuse to
go down in their pockets and dig up
bonuses for railroads on the theory
thatrailroads develop a country and
they do But so would colonization
and the investment could be made
here with a hope of getting a direct
return on the money invested If a
five hundred tract of land could be
divided among ten good truck farm
ers within a reasonable distance of
tliis city and the purchasers given a
long time in which to pay for their
tracts the investment would be worth
good money to the piomoters and
would increase the wealth of the coun
ty at the same time This is an ex
periment worth making It is the way
to settle the country and develop the
idle lands

BACK

pause and reflect on the life and in
fluence of George Washington the

this is Contrasted with the simple
ways of government in Washingtons
time things are now vastly different
in many ways and it is a thought
worth dwelling on as to what the
first president would think should he
come back to Washington History
tells us that the first president lov
ingly known as General Washington
was accustomed to ride horse back
or walk from the White House to the
capitol or from other places to the
White House But it he should come
now on his same faithful steed the
chances are he would be run down by
some sixty horsepower auto bearing
some agent of the government or he
would beheld up at the entrance to
the grounds liy one of the body guards
of the premises and be made to ex
plain his business Once inside the
home that was formerly his he would
find changes as magical as those of
the fairy tales and would not know
his own The simple furnishings of
the long ago have been stored in the
attic and splendor has taken the
places
And in the halls of congress What
woild he find here History has been
very charitable in forgetting the
faults and inconsistencies of the early
statesmen of America or else they
were a virtuous lot and were trying to
render a government for and by the
people But alas today General
Washington would touch shoulders in
the halls of congress with special rep
resentatives of the various combines
men who are owned and controlled by
the sugar steel oil and other trusts
and who do not seem ashamed that
their employment should be a matter
of public record Truly If the father
of his country should come back and
was given the same sincere mind and
tongue he would no doubt have a
startling message to deliver to his
people If Washington should come
back he would find too that one of
his chief claims to fame the fact
that he could not tell a lie was and
is not the chief virtue of many who
came after him
SHOULD WORK TOGETHER
To malce a city to build a city it
is necessary for men to work to
work together toward the laudable
goal of city building The individual
cannot accomplish much cannot take
up the burden of building a city and
succeed at it It is necessary for the
individual to work but when his
work is added to the energies of the
that his
entire citizenship then it is
efforts become effective
The Denison Herald says along this
line
Natural advantages are a great
thing for a towns foundation A good
location is another great advantage
These things however count for lit
tie if there is not an organized effort
on the part of the citizenship of the
town to take advantage of these con
ditions to the fullest measure and
build on the substantial foundation
that is theirs A live bunch of hust
ling men working together and taking
advantage of every opportunity that is
presented will discount a whole lot of
natural advantages and build a city
while the town with the good founda
tion is wondering why it is that such
a town keeps going ahead by leaps
and bounds It is not a hard proposi
tlon to figure out if you will give the
matter a little thought and investigate
what is being done
But when the citizens are alert and
have also natural advantages greater
things can be done great results se
emed However the great trouble is
towns witli naural advantages rely
wholly upon the advantages when the
eitiyens should work together to get
value fioni the natural advantages

THE HOUSTON CONVENTION
Palestine Layman Tells of the Great
i Meeting
Contributed by a Layman
After an inspiiing session of three
days the great meeting for East
Texas laymen recently held in Hous
ton came to a most successful end
Sundayiight The best known men
among the leaders in this movement
were present from the east as well
as missionaries fresh from the dark
corners of the world notably Africa
and China Business men were pres
ent who had toured the globe in an
investigation of the missions and their
work and their testimony was added
to that of the missionaries them
selves Also leaders were there who
are at the head of the missionary or
ganizations of this country these
having also traveled largely in foreign
heathen lands The mass of testi
mony submitted pointed out the in
adequacy of the present methods to
evangelize not convert the world
in the present generation though the
progress made at the piesent time
with the present equipment is shaking
the nations of the earth as never be
foie and gives bright promise for
future years
The spiritual impression made was
intense as manifested on the strained
faces of the delegates present and by
the iirepressible storm of approval
and sympathy often following those
who spoke to the convention A high
er mark will be set in future work
along this line for this territory This
was manifest in a practical way by
the fact that the various churches of
Houston voted solemnly to increase
their last year donation to foreign
missions fiom the combined sum of
7700 00 to over 2700000 the former
lepresenting last years gift and the
latter the amount pledged for the
piesent jear In so doing Houston is
only following the path of all of the
great centers of the United States
and Canada where these conventions
have been held That the other towns
or this territory will bo profoundly im
pressed it goes without saying
The Houston Chronicle of Feb 22
1110 sajs Then a dramatic incident
occuned Dr Lilly stepped to the
fiont of the platform holding in his
hand a caid on which was written the
record of what the churches of Hous
ton had done for missions during the
past jear He tore the card to atoms
and as the small particles fell to the
floor he said Thats your past rec
oi d You are not very proud of your
7IJ cent showing You never want to
see it again You hae set a new
mark ind jon will never return to
the old way May God bless and bless
Houston There was a moment of
prajer the benediction followed and
what was considered as the greatest
religious meeting ever held in the
city was brought to a close
Palestine was represented by eight
laymen and pastors Five of these
were from the Presbyterian church
