H ' , ■ PRIZES FOR BEST YIELDS OF The Texas Industrial Congress is introducing a new feature into its work this year which is being received with enthusiasm, par- ticularly by the farners of west Texas. Last year the Congress confined its prize oiler to crops grown without irrigation, but it is now offering, in Class E, $1,- 000, divided into twelve prizes, for the host yields of merchant- able kalfir corn or milo maize grown upon two acres of irri- gated land. The first prize in this class is $!J00, second $200, and for the ten next best results $50 each. This is a free-for-all contest, being open to men, women, boys and girls. Almost simultaneously with the public announcement of the offer applications to enter the contest in this class came from Brewster county, in the extreme southwestern part of the state, and from Hale county, in the great plains section of west Texas. Inquiries as to the prizes offer- ed in the different classes are coming in in increasing numbers daily, and ...

Pi v.-JSi I frM © CURIOUS BITS OF HISTORY By A. W. MACY. HOW A BEGGAR BECAME A GENERAL. Once upon a time a Japanese beggar named Hldeyoshi was sleeping over night upon a bridge. Before he arose In the morning he was roughly seized and ordered out of the way by an attendant of a young nobleman who was passing that way. Noticing that the nobleman was a mere lad, much younger than himself, the thought occurred to him, "Why should I get out of the way? He is rich and I am poor, but that, makes no differ- ence. I have heard of the rich becoming poor and the poor be- coming rich. Some day I will rise to a higher position than he has, and then I will make him tie my shoe." From that moment Hldeyoshi bccame a dif- ferent man. He made a way for himself, was advanced from time to time, and finally became gen- eral-in-chief of the Japanese ar- mies. He was an able comman- der, too; for he suppressed sev- eral formidable rebellions, and conducted two successful Inva. slons of Korea. (Copyright,...
