FMtSMc.LtmSKt ItlakNiiri WOULD SPREAD BOLL WEEVIL Dallas Man Said (o Have Offered to 'Blight Entire South With Pestiferous Boll Weevil. The following dispatch from Washington appeared in the state press recently. Just what should be done with a man who would attempt such a dastardly act it is hard to say. The dispatch says the offer of a Texan to scatter the boll weevil through the entire cot ton section of the South in order to affect the next crop prompted the Committee on Agriculture to report favorably today a bill of Mr. Lovering of Massachusetts to j prohibit the interstate transporta tion of insect pests and the use of the United States mail for that purpose. Some time ago a prominent cot ton firm in New York received a letter from a man in Dallas offering to undertake the spread of the pest for the purpose of affecting the cot ton crop in sections outside the present boll weevil area. This letter was turned over to the Department of Agriculture and Secretary Wilson put some of the Department's detectives on the track of the writer. He was found to be a man of some prominence in Dallas. There was no way of reaching him for punishment, so the matter was presented in con fidence to the members of the Agricultural Committee and Mr. Lovering drew a bill providing for punishment for any such attempt as he had suggested. The letter that the Texan wrote to the New York cotton brokers was read to the committee today, but it was withheld from publica tion and the members of the com mittee were bound not to disclose the name of the writer. The. committee unanimously re ported the Lovering bill, which provides that no railroad, steam boat, express, stnge or other tran sportation company shall transport from one State to another any live insect which is notoriously injur ious to cultivated crops of any kind, or the bugs, pupae or larvae of any such insects. The bill also prohibit the removal of such in sects or eggs or larvae from ooe State to another by any individual. Any letter.. parcel, box or other package containing such pro libit cd insects or eggs is declared non mailable and shall not be conveyed in the mails nor delivered from any postofficc nor by any letter carrier; and any person who shall know ingly deposit or cause to be depos ited for mailing or delivery any thing by this act declared to be nonmailable matter, or cause the same to be taken from the mails for the purpose of retaining, cir culating or disposing of or of aid ing in the retention, circulation or disposition of the same shall for each and every offense be fined not more, than five thousand dollars or imprisoned at hard labor not more than five years, or both, at the dis cretion of the court. The Secretary of Agriculture is empowered under the provisions of the bill to prepare rules and regu lations under which such insects or eggs or larvae may be transport ed for scientific purposes, such rules and regulations in so far as they affect the use of the mails ing subject to the approval of the Postmaster General. Any person, company or corpo ration who shall knowingly violate the provisions of this act shall be liable to a fine of five thousand dollars or imprisonement at hard labor, or both, in the discretion of the court. A Happy Hpme. Bonham News. 'Twas a cool, whiter evening not lbng ago.- The sky was" clea. The stars Had. Begun' tb peep through The moon cast floods of glory upon the earth. A mother and her five little children stood upon a south veranda waiting for "papal Would papa we welcome? Yes. When he was tired from the day's labors and turned his face home ward, he knew there was a wel come awaiting him. Knowing this; he quickened his steps. When he arrived, he was made to feel that he was welcome. Before he got to the yard gate, four joyful children ran to meet him. They clung, to his hands and coat-tail. One little tot was taken into the parternal arms. 1 lius, ins tace radiant with. smiles, he marched to the door- way of his home, where he kissed mother and the babe. He seemed to be the happiest man in the world! 'Why should he be? His home was an humble one a mere cot tage. He had very little of this world's goods. He labored for his daily bread. But listen: Love dwelt in that little cottage. Also, Love's associates, confidence, fidelity, at tentiveness and gentleness, were there. In brief, it was a happy home. The above picture we saw in the city of Bonham. A happy home! What magic power is therein contained! The labor may be hard and trying, but if the laborer dwells in a haptfy home his arm is strengthened. The conflict may be long, the battle fierce and bloody, but to the wound ed soldier boy, who has dwelt in a happy home, an inspiring vision will appear. Recollection will bring her sweetest picture from the ar chives of Memory and the soldier will take new hope and courage for the morrow as the old home of his happy childhood days appears be fore his mental vision. Yes, and the poor outcast, whose virtue and happiness have been sacrificed to satisfy man's brutal passion, is never stronger impelled to return to virtue's narrow way as when, in Meditation's golden hour, Reminiscence leads her back to the old family altar and bids her listen once more to a sainted mother's, fervent prayer. So marvelous and enduring is the influence of a happy home that our prayers as Texaus, as Americans, might well be: "God give us more happy hoiues." Relief From Pneumonia Worlds Pragrcaa. Take six to ten onions, accord itxl to size, and chop fine. Put in a large spider over a hot fire, then add about the same quantity of rye meal, and vinegar enough to make a thick paste. In the meanwhile stir it thoroughly, letting it simmer five or ten minutes. Theu put m a cotton bag large cnotrgli to cover the lungs and apply to the chest as hot as the patient can bear When this gets cool apply another aud thus continue by re-heating the poultices, and in a few hours the patient will be out of danger. inis simple remeay nas never failed in this (too often) fatal malady. Usually, three or four applications will be sufficient, but continue always until perspiration starts freely from the chest. This simple remedy, so says the New England Grocer, was formulated many years ago by one of the best physicians New England has ever be-(known. He never lost a patient by this disease and won his renown by saving people by simple rem edics after the best medical tal ents had pronounce:! their cases hopeless. Personally, we know of three psrsons who were saved by this remedy last winter in Eoston after their physicians had given them up to die, and if a record were made of all similar cases dur ing the last six years, it would' fill a good-sized vqlurae.

LEW WALLACE DEAD Author of Ben Hur Passes Away of a Wast ing Disease Was a Mexican War Veteran. Crawfordsville, Incl., Feb. 15. Surrounded by h is family, Gen. Lew Wallace, author of ":n Hur, ' ' one time Minister of Turkey and" veteran of the Mexican aud Civil Wars, died at his home in this city tonight, ageel 7S years. The health of General Wallace has been waning for several years and for monfihs, despite the effort othe family to keep the public in ignorance dhis true conditiou, it has been generally known that his vigorous constitution could not much longer withstand the ravages of a wasting disease. Eor more than a year he had been unable to prorerfy assimilate food, and this, together with his extteme age, made more difficult his fight against death. At no time has he ever confessed his be lief that the end was near, and his rugged constitution and remarkable vitality have been responsible for prolonging his life several months. The deathbed scene was one of calmness. v Besides his physician, only his wife and his son, Henry Wallace, of Indianapolis, were present. Two grandchildren, al though in the house, were not ad mitted to the room. When told by his physician that he was dying General Wallace was perfectly calm and his last words were expressions of. cheer to his griefstricken family. Bidding them farewell, hesaid "I am ready to meet my maker, " and lapsed into unconsciousness, from which he did not recover. No definite funeral arrangements have been made. Never Heard The News. When Bishop Meade was an enthusiastic youug miujater he made many miaeionary journeys into the wilds of the, Southern mountains. On one occasion as he sat at the door of a mountaineer's hut re freshing himself from a tedious jaunt with the buttermilk and corn poue the youug mountaineer wife had offered., the enthusiast entered into the story of the Redemption to an interested atidience of one. v Aa the story proceeded the young woman from, time to time uttered exclamations of surprise and delight. . "You don't mean to tell me,"., said the young divine, feeling the sincerity of her surprise, 'that you never before heard of Christ and Him Crucified?'' The young woman, realising from his shocked tones the mag nitude of hec ignorance, put her, fists into her eyes, drew up he apron to dry her tears, and apol ogetically and lamentably. "Oh, Misterl TJs live so far from de Big Road, and my man John he don't never tell me no newsl" Civil Service Examination.
