SIGNAL CLOTHING STORE, GJ, S. GERSON, Manager. , .. . , 3 + ATTEND THE CAUCUS TONIGHTI MAYOR AND COUNCILMEN TO BE NOfIINATED. TWO SLATES LINED UP. The caucus for nominating candidates for mayor and councilmen, who will have the control of Welsh for the next two'years, will be held at the City Hall tonight. Considerable interest is already being manifested in the matter and the caucus tonight promises to be full of interest to all. There are at least two slates lined up that will be presented to the caucus for their approval or rejection. The selection of these candidates is a matter of the most vital interest to every voter and property owner in Welsh,. and every one, who is qualified to vote, should see to it that he is there to cast his vote for the candidate of his choice. The men who are chosen, are the men who will de termine what progress our city shall make during the next two years, in moral and material development. They will determine the financial policies of the city for that period. In their hands will rest, to a large degree, the progress that our schools shall make. In fact, upon the coming city administration rests the responsibility of whether Welsh shall continue making the progress she has been making during the past few years, or shall drop from the enviable position that she now holds, to that of a dead one, such as all will be ashamed of. Friendships and "good fellowship" should not enter into the matter of selecting candidates for these import ant trusts, but only such men should be selected as have demonstrated by their business acumen and integrity, that they are worthy the confidence of the people. Don't depend upon your neighbor to shoulder this responsibility for you, but attend the caucus and, do your part. J Wind Destroys Many Derricks in the Jennings Oil Field.

Friends of Mr. Eduard Scharfl, in this city, were greatly shocked at re ceiving word from him a few days since, that his wife had been called to the great beyond on the 5th inst. The deceased had long been a safferer from bronchial troubles and finally succumbed to the dread tuberculosis. Mrs. Scharff was well known to practically everyone in this section of country, having resided here/with her husband for many years. During recent years she had, spent much of her time in El Paso, Texas and other western points on account of her health, but always considered Welsh her home until a few months ago when Mr. Scharff sold his plantations here and went west in order to have the famiv united. The maby friends mourn her de parture as the passing of a noble woman and a sincere friend. Inter ment was made in Galveston. De ceased leaves a husband and one son, Lynton, to mourn their loss, and to whom their many frienes in Welsh extend sympathy and condolance. Fresh Cows For Sale.

The demand is greater than the supply, and a large number of young men and women are wanted at once to complete courses of bookkeeping and shorthand or telegraphy in the Tyler Commerolal College of Tyler, Texas. During the past two weeks we have re. oelved far more calls for our tradu. ates than we could supply. We have not uw, and have not had for some time, a single graduate of bookkeep ing and shorthand out of a position, whose applioation is on our employ ment bureau file. This fact should be quite encouraging to the young peo. ple who'hsave been hesitating to spend time and money for a business edu. cation, fearing that they could not secure employment when their courses were finished. We can assure ev. eryone, who takes our course of book. keeping and shorthand or telegraphy that they will be placed promptly, up on the completion of their course. We can also assure them that they will be placed in a rood post ion whlch will be highly satisfactory to them. Business firms and railroads are beg)nning to realize the thorough practical training given the graduates of the Tyler Commercial College, and durlng the past two weeks, Arms from Ft. Worth, Waco, Dallas and other cities have asked us to furnish them with competent bookkeepers knd ste nographers, and we had no graduates to recommend, notwithstandingr the fact that we have an annual enroll. meat of 1500 students. If you have not sufficient means with which to pay your way through school, write us and state frankly your condition and we will submit to you the plans that have been so successful with thou. sands of others who were in your con dition. May we .sd you our large, beautifuy lly llustrated 188 page cata. logue, the largest ever put out by a commercial school? Address Tyler Commercial College, Box 4, Tyler, Texas.
