I want to start on the level with you and stay there, hence my frankness in the beginning. As an intro- duction, I wish to state that my official rank is that of the "Devil." A devil is the small- est paid, least important per- son around a newspaper plant and he spends h& Mm# doing what the other fellow says to do. The editor of this paper says write about the folks as you meet them, and here goes. My first assignment was to go out to the village of Retreat. I went out alright, but didn't find anyone whom I knew. However, I did talk with some fellers who gave me the name of Posey Williams, who they said, was a good farmer and a big hearted man who could probably be enticed into bring- ing the bo...

CORSTCANA DEMOCRAT AND TROTH New Lincoln Letter ftxccuiivt fttangron, Yi qCJU^S AA.+W *P* - f-o J&* By ELMO 8. WATSON BAR by year the fame of Abraham Lincoln grows and each succeeding year •ees new accessions to the nation's priceless store of Llncolniana. Amazing as Is the mass of this mate- rial accumulated In the comparatively brief time that has elapsed since Sec- retary Stanton exclaimed, "Wow he belongs to the ages!" It Is apparent that. If we are to judge by the discoveries of the last few years, there is still much to be learned before the last word on the career of this ene of the world's truly great can be written. Last year was, if any- thing, richer In the matter of new light being thrown upon the life of Linaoln than many which have preceded It, and scarcely a month passed that did not bring some, event which served to recall his same and fame. In April congress authorized the purchase of the famous Oldroyd collection of Lin- coln mementoes which for a number of yea...

St* Months 11.00 60c ttnterwd as second-class matter at the. postofflce at Cor- sleans, Texas, under Act of March 3, 1878. MAKING THE LAST BIG FIGHT "It takes a lot of nerve to start at your age, with the expectation of winning out, against a lot of odds, in this rushing age of commercial progress," a good friend of ours said to us only this week, and which statement we cannot let pass without giving full recognition. In the first place, we will have to acknow- ledge that it does. Usually, a man has made his fortune if he is going to make one, by the time he is forty six years of age, or else he contents himself to keep on keeping on for the other fel- low. Life, at its longest, is short enough, and with some kiddies to feed and educate, it is a big chance to break loose and start...

We'd sure like to have you, W. F. As I passed the Petty's Chapel community, I looked down at that fellow Blanken- ship's farm and said to myself: "there's a guy who is very near to the poor house, but he'll never get there." Mr. Blan- knship is too good a farmer to ever get any closer to the poor house than he now lives, which happens to be not far, as the county poor house is out in that section. Another man who has a wicked hand for making sand- wiches and other palatable things to eat is none other than T. J. Miles, the store man out to Powell. Soda pop the year round and everything in the btore is for sale at reasonable prices. I started to tell T. J. to give me a...
