* V ft. Madisonville Truck Line We have been advertising daily freight service from Madisonville to Houston and have not been able to give this every day as expected for the reason that many of our custo- mers have been giving us the orders to fill when we leave for Houston. This necessarily causes a great deal of delay. We have to go almost all over the city of Houston to gather up the freight after our arrival and this takes lots of time. It is sometimes necessary to call for perishable stuff but we want to urge our patrons to order their freight by mail and have it delivered to 1119 Vine St. so that this necessary delay will not be made when we arrive at Houston and we er if we can get the cooperation of ths can make the deliveries much quick- public in this matter. It will be necessary for us to charge for the extra time in picking up these orders when not delivered to the de- pot above named. We want tJ* give the best service possible and expect to do that with your help. I wan...

Blanton fails to show much strength outside his own Congression- al district, while Mayfield, Connally, and Owstey have strenght in almost all the counties. Run off Seems Settled The reports make it impossible to fore cast which will lead in the first primary, Connally or Mayfield but it is almost certain that the run off will be between these two men, either of which will do credit to Texas in that important position.

fir « I. ffi'' ! . ,;i r .. STRAIN OF THE PRESIDENCY o The attitude of President Coolidge toward re-nomination indicates that even the most sensative sticklers for the third term tradition have little to worry about. The President prob- ably could have had another term if he had not blocked the movement to renominate him. He did this, not because of any theory on the third term, but because he felt that anoth- er term would be an intolerable bur- den. The presidency has come to be the greatest executive office in the world with the possible exception of the dic- tatorship of Italy. The president car- rises a tremendous load. Only a man with a most unusual combination of physical vigor and mental serenity could willingly contemplate undertak- ing twelve years of such strain. o Mrs. T. L. Park called at the Meteor one day last week and had her name added to our subscription list. -i r i . ...
