PRESENT METHODS INDORSED
In a letter to the Herald from
jgg IS Maypr Bowerg ca theMnfabnation
pjgri Irthatiafter a discussion by life com
missioners of the merits of the split
log drag It was decided that the pres
ent road machinery in use by the city
answered the same purpose and pos
sibly did the work better than would
the drag The Herald is not con
vinced but it is open to conviction
and If the city fathers can show us a
few good streets as the result of their
efforts we will be ready to agree with
their opinion But we admit that we
are disappointed because the drag was
not given a trial The best way to
determine the relative merits of the
two plans would be to work a section
or street with the scraper and at the
same time or at an opportune time
drag another section of the streets
In that way the matter could be de
termined The Herald is interested
only to the extent that the town may
have the best streets possible and is
ready to agree with any plan that
shows results
In the opinion of the Herald the
tity scraper cannot possibly be made
to do the work of a drag because it
is not made along proper lines for
the work the drag would do even if

given a chance The blades of the
scraper are set at such angles that
instead of spreading out and smooth
ing down the mud which the drag
does the blade catches up and rolls
the mud to the center of the street
Instead of being a mud packer and a
dryer out of the mud holes it could
only succeed in scraping up and roll
ing up the mud
Just for the sake of proving the
argument let us reconsider and give
the drag a trial
PALESTINE IS BUILDING
If you are in an3 way suffering witii
an ingrowing grouch and have been
seeing blue as to the future of the
town we advise you to take a day off
now and take a drive or a walk over
the town and get wise as to what is
actually being done here You will
find as we have found that the old
town the good old town if you
please is forging ahead and that it is
building more rapidly today than at
any time in its history In all parts
of the town new houses are being
erected old houses are being im
proved repainted and the premises
being built up New sidewalks are
going down in > any places and the
people the builders are active In
North Palestine especially many new
houses are being erected and signs
of life and activity are apparent on
every hand These houses would not
be building if there was no demand
so it must beconcluded that the town
is growing and the population con
stantly increasing Then there is the
big new addition to the southeast of
the city being opened up and the pre
diction is here made that within less
than two years many new homes will
be erected in that territory Just for
get your grouch Palestine is all right
Alhwe need is tnkeVj nulling Koop
trying for ney enterprises and new
people The county needs one thou
sand new farmers and these are com
ing Be a booster and forget to
think blue
MAMMON OR REPUTATION
The St Louis PostDispatch takes
Speaker Cannon to task for saying at
a recent banquet that the rewards of
business are greater than the rewards
of politics that being equivalent to
a supposition that money is the great
est of earthly good
The PostDispatch says To some
men like Morgan or Rockefeller
money is a great reward To other
men like Roosevelt or Bryan it is of
little value They can do their work
without it And then the PostDis
patch asks
Can we imagine any patriotstates
man of the revolution saying the re
wards of Girard weie greater than
those of Jefferson Does any large
portion of mankind believe the re
wards of Vanderbilt or Gould or Astor
were greater than those of Lincoln
or Summer or Greeley
Pel haps it depends in some meas
ure upon the point of view To some
persons mammon is more than repu
tation honor love obedience troops
of fiiends but it is hardly to be sup
posed that a man upon whom honors
have been so showered as upon Speak
er Cannon that rewards in life have
come less to him than to men of mere
money For the most part the men
who live in history and in the affec
tions of posterity cared very little for
the lowards of money beyond the
mure sufficiency for their temporal
needs San Antonio Express
History hears out the above conclu
sion Few men of great wealth have
ever wonan enviable place in history
but almost always their money stands
as an accusation against them Take
the case of the late E II Harriman
a man of undoubted ability almost a
genius in promotion of great in
dustries a man wiiose efforts in
most any other line would have stamp
ed him as one of the great generals
or his day and yet he is lemembered
only as a great moneymaker The
lesson in this is that there is some
thing in life of vastly more impor
tance than the accumulation of
money No one ever thinks of the
great Edison or of liiirbanks or of
many other illustrious men as money
makers but rather as men achieving
great works for the good of mankind

we would lend gobs of dignity to the
event and that Teddy would feel ever

were there yet we must decline So
the parade will have to do the best
it can without us and maybe later
we shall permit Teddy an audience

The agreement of the business
houses of the city to close their places
at 1 oclock in the afternoon during
the summer months is a good move
and an advance one There is really
no leason why salespeople should be
requited to stay on duly Tor from ten
to twelve hours every day It is a
fact that all of the shopping could be
as easily done in the shorter time
and give the people engaged in sell
ing a little time of their own As
towns grow larger people learn more
of the value of time and in many of
tile larger cities the shorter hours
have been In effect for some time

of Lard is Leaf Lard
Here is what the leading lard packer says in a recent advertisement Leaf
is the cream of Jards There is not enough of it to supply onetenth of the
people and so it goes only to those who insist upon it
Does it not stand to reason that if there is only enough of the properfat
produced to make pure leaf lard to supply onetenth of the demand that the
chances are ten to one against your getting pure lard The only absolute
protection against getting common hog fat when you buy lard is by buying
Lottolene instead Cottohne is a pure vegetable product
made from cotton seed oil refined by our exclusive process
It contains no hog fat and makes palatable nourishing
tood which will agree with the most sensitive stomach
