THE TEXAS M ESQ UITE R JOHN E. DAVIS, Editor and Pro* MESQUITE; - - - TEXAS A New Industry. It fs quite possible that a new and Important industry will be developed In this country. There has been com- mendable effort, national and state, looking to the protection of game ani- mals and the preservation of species that have become well-nigh extinct through the waste permitted In earlier years. Now a step ahead may be ta- ken. The federal government, through the department of agriculture. Is giv- ing the matter attention. The depart- ment proposes to aid the people In going Into the business of producing venison for profit.

Larrimore was oblivious of the fact that there were women standing till h« noticed Miss Wheeler In the aisle. Her sister had found a seat and Jlmmle Toosure was hanging by a strap beside them. The young man rose and beckoned to Miss Wheeler. Her face lit up at sight of him and she made her way through the press to the seat he was holding for her. "I didn't know you were on the car. Where have you been? It seems to be bargain day here, doesn't it," pant- ed the girl, as she took the proffered seat. "I feel as if I belong to the remnant counter," agreed the young man, gen- tly removing a Htray elbow from tie small of his back. "I shouldn't think you'd dare say that, knowing that it is leap year," laughed the girl. "How much are you marked down to, Mr. Larrimore?" "I'd come awfully cheap to the right buyer," he told he...

Cleaned out the place, as It were. Now they want to put the probe into the cable trust This is like really diving deep into trust secrets. America lacks poets, says a French critic.

The question in South Texas is, will the lid stay on? Let us hope that the passing of Roosevelt means the last of the "Big Stick'' in the White House. State Senator Sellers, Re- publican, of Tennessee, received one vote for president of the senate, that being cast by him- self. Evidently Mr. Sellers be- lieves in looking after No. 1. The state-vriders appear to have things their own way in Tennessee. It used to be "poor old Kansas" and "poor old Maine." Now it is poor old Georgia, poor old Alabama, poor old Oklahoma—and then some. If the night riders of Ten- nessee get what...

The conditions in finan- cial circles brought about by the panic have about passed away and if the matter is pushed and handled in the right way, it is probable that responsible parties can be induced to go into the matter and put the line through. Just what the holders of the J.
