Buffingtoin Phillips (Copyright, by the Kidgwuy Co.) r1 m TIB greatest treasure in the United States, a vast sum that awaits some one's flndlng. Is one concerning which I have sought the exact truth for the several years that I have followed this fad of col- lecting treasure-trove data. The pub- lication of the story or stories about It may bring to light the men who can say definitely what Is what. However juiy man who cares to set out after it In a business-like manner may turn himself Into a multi-millionaire be- tween Christmas and Fourth of July. This much is certain: somewhere on the upper reaches of the Missouri river lie four large barges, lost la 1866, laoded to their utmost capacity with gold estimated In amount from $7,000,000 to $26,000,000. Just at the close of the civil war •ome rumors of the flndlng of gold In the Black Hills of Dakota and Mon- tana drifted Into the towns ...

The fiat is of Milt n trimmed with pink roses BORDERS ALWAYS IN FAVOR At This Time Much Originality Has Been Expended in Designs Put Forth for Popularity. There is fascination In the summer bordered materials of nino, cashmere and marquisette, and every class of voile or delaine is being made up with a border of much originality and greater prettiness. All these bordered stufTs are*tnade with'an eye to Jbe de- sign of the gown !ind its style and purpose, and the result is seen in many smart and apparently exclusive costumes. The skirt may be made in two tiers of spotted material, each tier having a wide band of some beautiful pattern, while the same pattern appears to form a corselet, the upper part and sleeves being simply of the spotted stuff. A taffeta belt gives a finishing touch. The patterned border may ap- pear around the...

MESQUITE, TEXAS, FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 6,1912 Vol,XXXI No, 10 JOE SAP ON SPECIALTIES BY JOE SAPPIN6T0N This is an age of specialization, high cost of living and strenous politics. When I was a boy the family physician prescribed for all human.ailments from toe-itch to consumption, but that has all been changed now. The princi- pal function performed by the doctor of today is that of diagnos- tician—he classifies our ailments and refers us to a specialist for that particular ailment or ail- ments. I can illustrate this best by giving bit of my own person- al experience. A few weeks ago my wife became alarmed about my health and sent for a doctor. He came and looked at my ton- gue, felt my pulse, put his ear to my heart, thumped my ribs, looked at the pupils of my eyes, asked me a few questions about THE BEST THE best and most for your money is what we will try to give you in every transaction, but the main object will be a square dea...
