Your opportunity is in Texas where soil,
climate and natural conditions are all
favorable. It is not an uncommon thing
for a farmer in Texas to pay for his farm
in one year. This could only be done where
land is fertile and inexpensive; crops big
and prices good.
Now is the time to .make a trip to Texas
and see just where your opportunity lies.

With the coming of fall come the
ring of the school bells. They
bring serious thoughts to many
who last year gathered up their
books and said goodbye to teachers
and pupils, with a little sigh for the
past are again reminded of the part
ings, that for them these bells
means only memories. But to the
little ones who reached six, how im
portant these first days, they can
scarcely wait for the sound that
calls them to new life; they go
blithely enough, even the timid
ones. To the mothers of these lit
tle beginners, how much it all
means; they feel their darlings slip
ping away, going from their all
sheltering care into the first step of
independent life. There are so
many evils that beset the way!
companionship of those less care
fully trained, hard places to begone
over, trials very real and dreadful
to shrinking childhood. It is net
strange that mother should look
longingly and tearfully at her dear
child just setting forth, all eager
ness and interest in the first day at
school, and as the mother turns in
to the house to her duties of the
day, it is not strange it is with a
little sigh for days that are no more
her baby is gone. Chronicle.

We stand in the presence of an
awakened nation. Plainly it is a
new age. There are two great
things to do. One is to set up the
rule of justice and right in suen
matters as the tariff, the regulation
of trusts and the prevention of mo
nopoly. The business of govern
ment, is to separate special and par
ticular interests from the general
interests of wide communities. The
initial task this year is to get our
governmeut in such shape that we
can use it for our own purpose, not
against anybody in particular, but
for everybody in general. We want
to establish a real partnership be
tween all the people and the Feder
al government instead of between
special interests and the Federal
government. We must effect a
great readjustment and get the
forces of the whole people once
more into play.
The tariff question, as dealt with
in our time, has not been business.
It has been politics. The tariff has
become a system of favors Tariff
schedules have been determined in
committee rooms and conferences.

and morals. "Personally Conducted" excursion
Our conviction as Democrats is party to California. She traveled
alone, but met many agreeable peo

of a special conductor. This good
natured official was a well inform

all the way through with the party,
looking after everyone's comfort
and attending to all the little de
tails of the trip. Thus a woman or
child in one of these parties can
travel with perfect safety and free

that the only legitimate object of

denounce the Payne-Aid rich Tariff
Act as the most conspicuous ex
ample ever afforded of the special
favors of monopolistic advantages
which the leaders of the Republican
party have so often shown them
selves willing to extend to those to
whom they looked fur campaigu
contributions. The changes which
we make should be made only at
such a rate and in such a way as
will least interfere with the normal
and healthful course of commerce
and manufacture. There should be
an immediate revision downward.
It should begin with the schedules
most obvLusly used to kill compe
tition and raise prices in the United
States, and should be extended to
every item which affords opportuni
ty for monopoly and special advan
tage, until special favors shall have
been absolutely withdrawn and our
laws of taxation transformed from
