Trail-Driving Cattle North in By W. R. HUNT P. O. Box 233, San Marcos, Texas. (Copyright 1939. by the Southwest Maituxine Co.) WO weeks before his death from f - a heart attack, February 15th, I sat in the office of the late W. T. ' Jackman, then custodian of Pio- neer Hall, San Antonio, and president of the Old Trail Drivers' Association- When not showing visi- tors the relics of Pio- neer Hall, Mr. Jackman could always be found in his office, a small corner room in the Pioneer building. The morning I called he was sitting in his office rolling and light- ing a cigarette. When I told him what I want- ed—to interview him about his trail-driving* days—he said, simply: "Son, I never did any- thing that would be of interest to anybo d y else." That remark was characteristic of Bill Jackman. A trail-driv- er from 1870 to 1890 and sheriff of Hays county, Texas, 20 years, he was known as a forceful, fearless man, although unassum i n g and loath to talk about himself. The editor of the Ma...

Weatherford St., Fort Worth, Tex. (Copyright 1(1*. by th« Southwaat Macula* Co.) lie | A Helping Hand JE of the most hopeful harbingers of an approaching new era of good feeling between labor and capital is the efforts of many groups of employes to lend a helping hand by drumming business for the firm that employs them. We are glad to see this movement general, not sporadic. Employes—white-collar men and others—now recognize that no business can keep them on the payroll unless it makes a profit, and that profit de- pends, in a large measure, upon business volume; hence they are doing all they can to promote sales of the goods and services their companies have to of- fer. ^ The feeling between management of railroads and those who work for them has generally been kindly; as individ- uals, the employes have ...

T A LITTLE Smart Newsboy \ A. B. Houghton, a former American Ambassador to Great Britain, told the story of buying a newspaper from a London newsboy, who charged him the usual price of one penny. "I guess I would have to pay double the price of this paper if I were in America," Mr. Houghton remarked. "Well, said .the newsboy, "you can pay me double, guv'nor, if it'll make you feel at home." fj1 J J l\f Jokes to Make You Laugh Business Man A panhandler was seen standing on the corner holding a hat in each hand.

A.j£ tty j. Tr/. i DISCOVERY OF VULCA- rubber companies of America I NIZEI) RUBBER since the World War Se Just a century ago Charles [sought to find rubber sources Goodyear accidentally idrop ped a crude mixture of "gum elastic" and sulphur on his wife's hot kitchen stove, and thereby discovered the secret of vulcanization of rubber—a process that set in motion the wheels of a billion-dollar in- dustry. But Goodyear never lived to "cash in'' on his valp- able discovery. He died a poor man—$191,000 in debt. From the date of Good- year's discovery, rubber be- gan to grow until today it has spread throughout the world as one of the major indus- tries, employing 4,000,000 persons and representing an investment of $3,000,000. The great rubber factories of the world today turn out annual- ly goods valued at $22,500,- 000,000. The search for wid- er use of rubber is unending, and in 1938 in the United States alone some $10,000,000 was spent by rubber com- panies for research. Rubber itself...

But those rickety buildings once formed the nucleus of what was to be a humming metropolis, built on the very top of a diamond mine which was to rival the African Kimberley fields for produc- tivity. But, like other "ghost towns" of the gold and silver regions of the West, the Ozarks' Kimberley died. An industry which was to have brought millions of dollars annually into Arkansas has yielded a bare $100,000 in .10 years of sporadic operations. Diamond mines are rare. A bulletin of the United States Geological Survey once described the Arkansas field as "the only diamond mines on the North American con- tinent." The bulletin al...
