WEI ED FUNERALS OP AEKICAS H? BY GERALD A+E.ODCFZICK* m £ Tt//Y£/ZAL /3/T^-S HE old king of Totoquelll was dead. It was in the Liberlan hinterland, four days back from Monrovia. a region where the gov- ernment levies no taxes, where the native African chiefs reign Bupreme, where the only statutes are the laws of the bush. A couple of English prospectors, an English rubber trader and an Ameri- can missionary compose the foreign population all the way back to the French frontier. There is 110 part of the west coast of Africa so lightly touched by the white man, for even the occasional government officials who visit the region are black. In all the towns the babies yelled at my approach and the children fled in ter- ror if I walked toward them. While King Wobeh's star was in the ascendency death came out of the foggy bush and laid its hand upon him. A famous mullah man was called to make incantations and the "sand cutter" brought out all his paraphernalia of divination and peeped impre...

Entered in the postofficc at Mes- .q.iite, Texas, as second class matter. s ASSOC!* Friday, September 10, 1909. FORNEY VS. MESQUITE. The Forney Messenger is making some extravagant claims about the alleged superiority of Forney as a cotton market, which the facts—not even its own re- port of prices paid—will bear out. Now, we do not blame the Messenger for boosting Forney. In fact we would blame it if it did not, but the last issue of that paper contained statements that showed the editor of the paper was either woefully ignorant of what other towns were doing or wilfully misrepresented the facts. We prefer to believe the former. The facts are that any day in any week in any month in any year MESQUITE PAYS AS MUCH FOR COTTON AS FORNEY OR ANY OTHER TOWN AND OFTEN MORE. This paper publishes the prices pai...

MESQUITE, TEXAS, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 24,1909 Vol. XXVIII No. 13 I, V Y0UR FALL BILL The question is asked by the husband to the wife: Where shall we buy our Fall Bill? Her answer: From Hudson, Davis & Company, Mesquite, Texas. His inquiry; Why? Because they are the only exclusive Dry Goods, Clothing, Shoes, Hats and Millinery house in town and they know our wants, and give their whole time and thought to this business, besides they have TEN Stores and buy in large quanities and from the largest houses in the East which enables them to give us the best values of any house in town for our money. You know our Fall Bill last year was from them and everything was entirely satisfactory. The shoes and clothing you remember were guaranteed by them, but as the wearing qualities of both were far ahead of anything we have been able to get at the same price, we had no occasion for complaint.

Miles in praise of the deeds of five enlisted men. Gen. Miles' letter is written as sim- ply as becomes a soldier, but it Is a pulse-stirring epistle. It is probable that no- where else in authen- tic history can there be found an ac- count of a battle won by a force of men when the odds against them were 25 to 1. In no story which can be told concerning the people of the lilains is there to be found a tale of greater heroism than that shown by a little contingent of enlisted men of the Sixth United States cavalry down near the Red river in Texas, in the summer of the year 1874. The Sixth cavalry has had a fighting history, but this particular story shines bright in its pages. The Comanches, the Cheyennes and the Klowas were on the warpath and were leaving a red trail all along the borders of western Ka...
