THE STICKER• RAYMOND WINPREE, Ed. and Pub. SCHULENBURG, : TEXAS. The Princess By HAROLD McGRATH Author of "The Man on the Box." "Hearts and Masks." Etc. (Copyright, 1906, Bobbs-ldamil Co.) CHAPTER I. It is rather difficult in the^e days for a man who takes such scant interest in foreign affairs—trust a whilom diplomat for that!—to follow the con- tinual geographical disturbances of European surfaces. Thus, I can not distinctly recall the exact location of the Grand Duchy of Barscheit or of the neighboring principality of Dop- pelkinn. It meets my needs and pur- poses, however, to say that Berlin and Vienna were easily accessible, and that a three hours' journey would bring you under the shadow of the Carpathian range, where, in my diplo- matic days, I used often to hunt the "bear that walks like' a man." Barscheit was known among her sis- ter states ' as "the meddler," the "maker of trouble," and the duke as "Old Grumpy"—Brummbar. To use a familiar Yankee expression, Barscheit had a...

COME TO THINK OF IT1 .(■i-Z ■ f Some of the Ways to Avoid Boll Wee- vils, Drouths and Panjcs. Arlington generally gets 10,000 bales of cotton, worth $60,000. This year we are short more than half this amount, and people are doing some figuring and a little thinking. Already fortunes have been made and nations fed on peanuts. Al- ready it has been shown how our people can get rich raising chickens, hogs, strawberries, dewberries, mel- ons, sweet potatoes, etc. We have 1000 farmers who trade here, and $600,000 worth of cotton gives an average of $600 to each farmer, which is perhaps a fair es- timate., . Now it would only take 2,000,000 chickens (2000 chickens to each of cur 1000 farmers) at thirty cents each to be worth as much as our cot- ton crop $600,000, and this amount of chickens would not crowd the world's market by any means. Or again if each of our 1000 farm- ers would raise 60 hogs and sell them at £10 each it would equal the whole of our cotton crop, and the supply would b...

~' V&v W-r'X~m I- rk • \ IV FOUND OUT JUST IN TIME, JULIET'S CHOICE. Why She Decided She Would Go to Marysviile Seminary. There wasn't a great deal to choose between them. Marysviile Seminary was located near the mountains; Eli- otford Seminary was surrounded by beautiful lakes. Eloise James was go- ing to enter Marysviile, while Laura Ford was about to become a student, at Eliotford Seminary. Eloise and Laura were Juliet's particular chums. Now, which school should she at- tend? Juliet had by no means arrived at a solution of this important problem up to this afternoon, when, with heels impatiently drumming a tattoo, she awaited the coming of Eloise and Laura. The three were going to take one of their customary trips together —the last before school terms would begin. Moment after moment flew; still there was no sign of either of her two friends. To pass away the time Juliet began to think again of the "semin- ary riddle," as she called it. But even that she gave up in despair,...

I Notwithstanding the very unprop- itious weather conditions last win- ter and spring, resulting in not only only curtailing fruit crop in Texas, but also in killing many of the bear- ing trees in many orchards, reports from the canning, factories and in- dividual canners throughout the State are uniformly encouraging. A great many of these establishments have been built since last year's fruit crop was gathered and disposed of, and the fact that they have been so successful this year in the face of such adverse conditions make the more gratifying the success that lias resulted from tha first season's op- eration. It has been only a few years since the suggestion of the establishment of canneries in Texas was greeted with the same ominous shake of the head and expressions of doubt that a year or so ago, and even now in seme localities, greets...

llffi? ■ I -; as Well as Men Are Made j| Miserable by Kidney and Bladder Trouble. * Kidney trouble preys upon the mind, discourages and lessens ambition; beauty, vigor and cheerful- ness soon disappear when the kidneys are out of order or dis- eased. Kidney trouble has become so prevalent that it is not uncom- mon for a child to be born afflicted with -weak kidneys. If the child urinates too often, if the urine scalds the flesh, or if, when the child reaches an age when it should be able to control the passage, it is yet afflicted with bed-wet- ting, depend upon it, the cause of the diffi- culty is kidney trouble, and the first step should be towards the treatment of these important organs. This unpleasant trouble is due to a diseased condition of the kidneys and bladder and not to & habit as most people suppose. - Women as well as men are made miser- able with kidney and bladder trouble, and both need the same great remedy. The mild and the immediate effect of Swamp-Root is soo...

1 . Texas and the Railways. ] The Logical Development Is that of Supplying the De mand as Created by the Settlement of Mew Sections. Discussing the railroad situation in Texas, the Baltimore Sun says: "Nearly 70 out of the 245 coun- ties are without railways, and many others are barely touched. Many county seats are fifty miles from the nearest railway. In fact, the great- er part^ of the 266,000 square miles of Texas urgently require railways for the development of their latent re'sourees, the average being but 4.6 miles of railway to each 100 square miles of territory, while Illinois has more than twenty-one miles to the same area. There are, in short, but 13,000 miles of railway where 60,- 000 are wanted." It-is true Texas needs additional railways, but it is fallacious to es- timate a people's transportational needs by the area they occupy. The 60,000 miles of railway will come in .good time, but they will come along with the people who must create the/ traffic for them. ' To ha...
