COURAGE HEN Julius Caesar was crossing the sea with his army jfflfl a storm arose, threatening to destroy the ships and badly frightened, th# despairing sailors were in the act af returning to the harbor when Caesar stepped upon the deck and said, "Fear not, Caesar is with you." The ship of progress meets many a stormy sea in Texas and sometimes those who man the boats are tempted to return to still waters, but "Fear not, the Commercial Secretaries are with you." Courage is the nurse of genius and Caesar was the greatest genius of any race or age. We need a genius to fire us with courage and inspire us with faith in the Lone Star State. Y II "FEAR NOT. CAESAR IS WITH YOU."
