Beazley; thence south through Bruner Addition to a connection with the main in front of the residence of Mrs. Smith. And the main near the residence of Mr. Leediker should be extended northwardly through Depot Addition to the street in front of the residence of Mr. Frank Craddock; thence east down with the street to a connection at the Electric Light Plant. The people on these streets have almost demanded of the city council that they put ^ the water in reach of their resi- W dences. To extend these mains in this way would add possibly fifty subscribers, with an in- creased revenue of not less than one hundred dollars per month. And aside from this, justice de- mands that if it lies within our power to give these people wa- ter, who are now paying taxes for the former bonds ...

MAN WHO KNOWS SOIL i WpM i r WSk Moisture and Fertility Main- tained by Cultivation. Condition That Confronts Farmer Is to Know Exactly How to Go About Tilling to Cat Resulta—What Campbell Teaches. Whether done understanding^ or not. all effort8 at cultivating the soil are primarily for the benefit of the thing In the soil, rather than for that above It. Air and sunshine In which the higher orders exist need no culti- vation. Therefore Juat In proportion as we cultivate the soil understand- ingly does the profit from soil culture pass from uncertainty to certainty; from being a gamble to an Investment, writes Eugene D. Smith In the Den- ver Field and Karm. No matter what inay happen to the crops above the aoll the moisture and fertility are not lost when true scientific soil culture is continued. It simply becomes a case of deferred dividends to be realized through future crops. Not that it Is necessary for the farmer to await the result of the scientific controversy as to what orde...

NUMBER 6 LIGHTNING FIRES BIG OIL TANK Fort Worth, Tex., May 20. Lightning struck a crude oil tank of the Piercp-Fordyce Oil Association, located near the re- finery, about five miles due north of the courthouse, at 6:12 o'clock this morning during a rainstorm and started a conflag- ration which caused $50,000 damage to tank No. 4 and its contents. There were 25,000 barrels of crude oil in the tank and the electric bolt ignited the gas ac- cumulated at the top, causing an explosion and starting the con- flagration. Flames from the burning oil mounted to a great height, caus- ing a spectacular blaze, and a column of black smoke arose sev- eral hundred feet and extended for miles across the prairie in a northwesterly direction. The fact that the wind was from the south prevented the fire from spreading to ot...

$ ID LENGTHENED YEARS OF LIFE Modern Conditions, Strenuous as They Are, Have Not Shortened the Average of Man's Days- Vital statistics show that, In spite of the strain of modern life, the aver- age life-term is Increasing. Medical men are pretty well agreed that this Is due chiefly to the fact that we take better care of ourselves than our forefathers did. There seem to be two important factors in this physical Improvement We live under better hygienic condi- tions, and we take less medicine. Old-fashioned homes may have been romantic, and even comfortable, bul they were less healthful than modern homes occupied by families of the same social station. Furnaces, hot water, ventilation, sanitary plumbing and garbage disposal work wonders in keeping strong people well, and in enabling sick persons to recover. Ap- plied knowledge of disease germs helps to keep illness at bay. A pa- tient can be as well cared for now- adays in an ordinary home by an in- telligent woman as formerly in a ...

CELEBRATION AT GALVESTON Galveston, Tex., June 5.—The people of the Coast country and the people of Texas, who will at- tend the Intercoastal Canal Cele- bration at Galveston, June 12, 13, 14 and 15, are to be congrat- lated upon the fact that the fes- tivities on that occasion have been arranged with a view to giving the greatest pleasure to )the greatest number of people.
