COUNTRY PAPER A BUILDER
The country paper is the greatest
country builder Its constructive
force is next to marvelous its ability
to get others to see and do things
has no equal It builds roads it im
proves farms it sustains towns and
villages it improves social circles
fiand it supports material advance
ment In fact it entersinto the very
heart and life of all country progress
aud it never ceases to do its work
writes Aaron D States editor of the
Lamar Mo RepublicanSentinel
Jhe power of the age is the country
newspaper It goes into the quiet of
the country fireside and becomes a
competent tutor to every member of
the household It is indeed a public
benefactor a progenitor of all good
and useful measures therefore about
and best friend of the race It has
i great educative powers It places
1 manity in one school and gives to
each member equal rights with the
ether It is not a respector of per
sons It goes into the hovel and the
modern home and it carries the same
message to all As the years deepen
into the centur3 its influence grows
stronger and its appreciation is ex
tended
Every year brings a needed change
a decided Improvement All classes
look to it for information for sug
gestion and for publicity Corpora
tions know of its worth all classes of
business seek its support and all

conditions of humanity come to it for
aid The country press will never
die Its columns may be abused they
may carry messages that are worth
less and ineffective for good yet the
time is fast arriving when the ideal

their demands and profiting by their
requests Let the good work go on

AND THIS IS A TRUTH
The Rusk County News says
There will be a general weeding
out after the gubernatorial inaugura
tion next January and many that have
been feeding at the present adminis
tration pie counter will have to step
down and out to make room for the
incoming administrations hungry
norde but mark our prediction when
we say that but few of the homey
handed sons of toil who cast the ma
jority of the votes and did the most
wnooping for the nominee will be
gathered about the pie counter the
next two years
And still there are some very dirty
alleys in the downtown district
Clean them up and let us keep a

The Hon Wiley Mangum Imboden

Stokes
The San Antonio Light declares the
democratic party has been captured
by the pros Not yet not yet There
lemains that state senate bunch
They remain untamed and apparently
untamable and refuse to be captured
The city of Washington is paying a
bounty of 4 cents a hundred for
houseflies In some sections of this
beautiful city good money could be
made if such a price was offered
They could bo scooped up by the
thousands
If half the truth Is being told re
garding the treatment of the Indians
by the landgrabbers and the shrewd
unscrupulous lawyers and politicians
of Oklahoma the penitentiary of that
new state Is not half big enough to
hold those who should be in it

The territory to be opened by the
road of which the building has been
announced by Mr Perkins is one of
the richest in al Texas In the
southern and central parts of It crops
are raised throughout the year and
during the winter large quantities of
garden truck are shipped from there
The new railroad would greatly stim

a large share of its freight tonnage

San Antonio 17 That

Jhe St Louis Brownsville Mexico
railroad will build a trunk line into
this city is the definite announce
ment made by A T Peikins vice
president of the system Mr Perkins
came to San Antonio for the express
purpose of making this statement to
the Chamber of Commerce In order
to put his road in contact with San
Antonio as soon as possible a branch
line will be built from Kingsville to
Alice a station on the San Antonio
Aransas Pass railroad This done
the St Louis Brownsville Mexico
will run Its own trains into this city
The branch line in question will be
twentytwo miles in length and will
ultimately form part of the main line
Work on the latter will be pushed
with all energy and Mr Perkins is
confident that it will be in operation
Jwithin twelve months The distance
to be covered by it is one hundred
and twentyfive mles Owing to the
fact that the country traversed is
prairie land of an undulating charac
ter no serious engineering problem
will be encountered
It is understood that the line to be
built will form the connect ng link in
the Yoakum railroads for a short line
between St Louis and Mexico City
Surveying crews now in the field are
selecting a route from Brady Texas
southward towards San Antonio the
former being at present the terminal
of the Fiisco road The two lines
would meet in this city and provide a
short haul for all through traffic to
Mexico
I Thenew international bridge at
Brownsville will be open for traffic
next November and will give the Yoa
T he 08t S ° U e
f Juni roads P cal contact with the
National lines of Mexico at Matamo
ras7 In all probability if rumors are
to be believed the Yoakum interests
jvill then build an air line to Mexico
City The branch of the National
lines with which the St Louis
Brownsville Mexico will connect
follows a rather circuitous route and
for that reason an effective short line
to Mexico City from St Louis will
not be a reality before a road down
the east coast of the republic is in
