The suggestion has been made to
the Herald by a citizen who has al
ways stood for the best things for his
community that It would be a good
plan to hold a reception to the new
comers to Anderson county making it
possible for the people1 generally to
get acquainted with their new neigh
bors The Herald indorses the idea
and suggests that the Board oTTrade
plan such a reception and extend an
invitation to the new people in the
county as well as the old residents to
meet here some day at an early time
and hold a general getacquainted
meeting In connection with this
same program a good farm product
exhibit could be held in the parlors
of the Board of Trade making the day
ane not only of social pleasure but of
educational value and one of inspira
tion If the Board of Trade is ready
to cooperate in such a move the
Herald will advertise the occasion and
this paper feels sure such an invita
tion would be heartily responded to
We should have a good county exhibit
at any rate that we may know here
at home just what we are doing And
while we are about it we should make
the exhibit of such character that we
could forward it to the Dallas Fair
Brethren of Palestnie we should be
up and doing along this line We need
a more extended country business and
this is one of the best ways to secure

While some of the papers and some
of the people are hammering away at
Governor Campbell and assailing him
because he has had the honesty and
nerve to live up to his platform and
try and enact into law the things de
clared for in the partys platform it
is refreshing to find some other papers
willing to give him credit for doing his
duty The following editorial from
the San Antonio LightGazette will be
read with interest by the friends of
the governor
Some folks in Texas would die of
mortification if Governor Campbell
should go to the United States senate
in the event of the retirement of
Senator Culberson which is rumored
today There is no doubt that Gover
nor Campbell with his Scotch deter
mination and sound sense on most
matters would make a splendid addi
tion to that body He might never be
acclaimed a matchless leader or
the pearl of democracy or the
hope of the nation or any other of a
lot of lickspittle terms but he would
probably cast no stain upon the repu
tation of the state The fact that
Governor Campbell has made so many
enemies among the buzzards that in
fest Austin and try to look like eagles
while picking the bones of the peo
ple is a mighty good recommendation
for the man
He has made lots of m stakes but
the man who never did anything is
the only one who never made a mis
take Campbells record is pretty
clean considering the fact that about
five hundred professional character
hawks have been after him for two
years and have found very little to
shout from the housetops
At many times this newspaper has
had cause to differ with the governor
and his acts have not niT ° pf vlth
the approval of the people of this
section but no one has ever ques
tioned his honesty or hi ability Lots
of people get by just because they
mean well or are conscientious or are
said to be honest This is a mighty
poor sort of recommendation for a
man who thinks well of brains but
lots of our leading statesmen find It
the only anchor
Governor Campbell has been vigor
ous at times to the point of rough
ness but after all he is a rugged man
and a brainy man and doesnt have to
be sweet and nice to hold publc opin
ion in his favor
Heres hoping that Senator Culber
son may long be spared to Texas but
that in the event of his retirement
some one as straight as T M Camp
bell may take his place
f he Knockers Club has been given
no place in the Labor Day parade
Tis well
Just two weeks from today until
Lanor Day when we are all expected

Senator Gore insisted that the con
gressional committee investigating his

Sherman and Senator Curtis from any

Gore seems to be big enough to play
the game absolutely fair

President Madriz of Nicaragua has
hit for the tall timber and the press
dispatches announce that Estrada Is
acting president It is now a question
of who will be the next cutup over

down the presidency in South and
Central America
Special interests seeking special ad
vantages fiom the government are in
a large measure responsible for the
crookedness in governmental affairs

the game and most men would want

Navasota Oil Mill Valued at 75000
With Insurance of 30000
Navasota Texas Aug 21 Fire was
discovered in the Schumacher oil mill
last night about 1030 oclock and re
sulted in a disastrous blaze The fire
started in one of the cotton seed con
veyors and its origin is unknown It
rapidly spread and threatened all the
nearby buildings Notwithstanding the
fact that the mill has its own water
system for fighting fire the firemen
were unable to check the spread of
the flames The mill was a total loss
The mill was built thirtysix years
igo by H Schumacher and has al
ways been a paying institution for
Navasota The mill had been equip
ped throughout with modern machin
ery The loss is estimated at 75000
with 30000 insurance The mill at
present was owned by a stock com
pany the principal holders being the
Schumacher heirs and Messrs Tem
pleman Terrell Wesson and others
that a politician in congress looks
after his party and his immediate
constituency trading and scheming to
get the most from the public crib for

constructive historymaker looking
after the best policies for the govern

the most people It is by the way
an important distinction
