CROCKETT, TEXAS, NOVEMBER 7, 1912. VOLUME XXin—NO. 41. VOTED WILSON TO A SWEEPING VICTORY. Electoral Vote of Democrats Will Pass 300 Nark According to Incom- plete Retaras. New York, November 5.—With the election of Woodrow Wilson to the presidency and Thomas R. Mar- shall to the vice presidency assured by the returns tonight, the reports up to midnight gave indications that the electoral vote of the dem- ocratic candidates would pass the 300 mark.

It was certain, however, that Illinois would give an overwhelming ma- jority to Roosevelt, while the race in Pennsylvania was so close as to bring all ...

Mayor Young informs the Courier that the Southwestern telephone Co. has agreed to remove all of its poles and wires from the public square and main streets and place them on a cross street a block north of the court house square. This matter in the interest of the city has been pending for some time and was settled in the city council this week. It is but an- other step in the city's forward inarch. A free wagon yard, where people coming to trade could leave their wagons, is a thing that was long ago advocated by the Courier. Its necessity is now thrust upon the business men of this to...

"In the first place," he says in "In the Amazon Jungle," "there are the ants. They are everywhere. They build their nests under the houses, in the tables and in the cracks of the floors and lie in am- bush waiting the arrival of a vic- tim, whom they attack from all b sides.
