Telegraph and
Telephone Lines
To save time is to lengthen life and
the greatest time saver of the age is the
telegraph and telephone According to
the report of the Tax Assessors there
are 27593 miles of poles over whicli
telegraph and telephone wires run in
Texas This mileage single wire is
equal to 450000 miles and is sufficient
to encircle the globe eighteen times
The scientist in giving the farmer im
proved virieties of products and the
inventor in giving us machinery that
reduces the cost of production has per
formed a great service to the farmer
but the telephone warm from the cre
ative mind of the inventive genius is
destined to companion in utility and
convenience all human accomplishments
for the intelligent promotion of agricul
ture The telephone is the improved
public highway of information and is as j
valuable to the farmer in selling his
his products
Farmer Phoning Market
The telephone eliminates time and
space and enables the farmer to per
sonally visit the markets and talk with
buyers without the inconvenience of
travel or loss of time
To talk with the weather man as he
listens to the clouds whisper their plans
for the future is one of the startling and
gives the farmer the advantage of the valuable uses of the telephone Adance
experience of all his neighbors and
informshim of the general condition
of affairs so essential to his success
The improvement of orr oublic high
ways and the establishment of rural
free delivery routes hae extended the
zone of circulation of the press to the
remotest sections of the State and
reading the papers is as much a part
of the work of the Texas farmer as
feeding his stock
W J Four Papers Per Family
The ability of a farmer can be at

Miss Amanda Perkins was an old
maid She had ueer loved Her
brotber Ben who was a fanner and a
widower took her tor hK buiisekeep
er Abe Smith eauie to work as a
hired man for an adjoining farmer
Abe was an old bach
It was fale that Lept Amanda au old
maid It was fate that brought Abe
all the wiy from Indiana It was fate
that Unruly brought the two face to
face Abe bad hardly got through
asking Amanda for the loan of a hoe
when he found his heart funking with
a strange tunk
Two weeks after the Hoosiers ap
pearanre a band of gypsies came along
the roul and In return for some cold
victuals one of the women told Aman
das fortune
You will marry she started off
It seems impossible
But the stars say so and they are
never mistaken
What htirt of husband will he be
blushingly asked the old maid
A hero You will not know that
he is a hero for some time but it will
suddenly come to pass Ele will save
your life from Indignant insects I
cannot say whether they will be grass
hoppers or not
The next time Abe called Amanda
looked him over and decided he was
no more of a hero than the gatepost
He didut look it nor talk it and there
fore when he told his love and asked
for her band she replied
1 shall never marry any one but a
hero
ButTm one I fit into the Spanish
war and lands save you but how I
mowed em down
But Abe was thrown down Aman
das brother liked him but that didnt
count She bad asked Ben what par
ticular insects got indignant but Tip
couldnt give her the information He
had never seen a beetle or a grass
hopper mad but he bad never poked
either with a stick The Hoosler had
arrived in the early spring In May
be renewed his offer of matrimony
He had an affectionate disposition and
100 In his trunk
You are as good as any one around
here Abe replied Amanda but the
stars have settled It for me
The stars be hanged The stars
have about as much to do with mar
riage as the June bugs
But he is to be a hero
Well diug it aint I one Ive nev
er bragged much about how I mowed
the Spanish down but Ill say toVou
right here and now that I killed sev
enteen ofem
Why that was brave of you
I should remark but Im not boast
ing of It If the battle had lasted a
little longer Id have made the num
ber twenty
But the gypsy said It would be some
one who would save my life Im kind
er liking you Abe but I dasnt go back
on the stars and the gypsy
Abe came over on a dozen occasion
In June and said nothing further al
though he was more determined than
ever It was the first of July before he
got around to say
You might as well be bridal tower
ing around as washing taters here
Whats the use of fooling about a thing
of this kind
The hero may be along any day
now was the reply
Say Manda that gypsy must have
meant me She sure did Ive been
counting up since I told you I had
killed seventeen Spaniards and I find
the number was twentyseven I add
ed them up wrong Do you want any
bigger hero than that
Lands Abe but how you must
have fit
Fit Well I guess yes I was
there to do it and I mowed em
Lemme get the preacher tomorrer
Nope Ive got to go by what the
stars say
There werent any stars out nest
afternoon and no gypsies around
when Amanda started across the
meadow to gather cowslips at the
pond Swinging a basket In her baud
and humming a tune she walktul right
Into a bumblebees nest TLe hero
was right over in the next lot giving
the corn a second hoeing He heard
screams He heard yells He heard
walls for help He ran to the fence
and saw Amanda ho ping nad run
ning and dodging and using lier sun
bonnet as a weapon
Humph grunted Abe as he out
with his knife and cut a thick topped
bush Theres the Indignant Insects
and by gum if here haint the hero
Amaudii Iferklns you are mine
There were half a hundred humbles
They were thoroughly Indignant
They made It lively for Amanda and
they had plenty left over for Abe but
a hero always conquers The buffer
ing hero picked the suffering heroine
up in his arms aud toted her to the
house aud dropped her ou the Boor tg
