It is believed that the Eskimo i lamp was invented before its pos- sessors emigrated from their original home, which was probably farther south and near the neacoast. But the form of the lamp becomes more specialized the higher the latitude is. The lamps of southern Alaska have a wick edge of two inches, while those of Point Barrow and northern Greenland have wick edges of 17 to 36 inches. The lamp is employed for melting snow and ice to obtain drinking water, for cooking, light- ing, warming, drying skins and in the arts. It is also a social factor and the sign of the family unit, each head of the family having his lamp. -Harper's Weekly. SCOTCH CURIOSITY.

BUY A MOME . Wc give below a partial list of some of the most valuable farms in this country, and at the best bargains we know of in Texas. Itasca has the smallest trade territory of any town in the county of its size, and yet it ships more cotton and more grain than any town of like size in the county. Could it do this if its lands were not the richest and most productive? There is not a particle of doubt in the minds of well informed people that we have the most fertile soils and the best located country in the whole black land belt of the great State of Texas. Then why not get busy and buy you one of these fine farms while you have the opportunity. We can make the price right, and we can make the terms right, so there is absolutely nothing in the way except for you to get your mind made up that you will stop renting, stop giving away a great part of your hard earned labor for the privilege of a temporary home and a chance to work. We have assisted hundreds to get homes. We can an...

Don't buy until you have inspected a Cutting. After careful consideration of automobile business in Hill County we found that the greater number of buyers are now demanding a high-class car, mod- ernly equipped, at a moderate price and are inclined to get away from the cheap car class on the theory that the first cost is not all that counts.
