§ I I V Judge Roberts' Record Shown Up By His Opponent, Ross M. Scott TO THE DEMOCRATS OF DALLAS COUNTY. We call your attention to the judicial record of Judge J. C. Roberts, now candidate for Judge of the 68th District Court, as told by himself, and beg you to note how variant his telling of it is from the real record. He says: "No judge in Dallas County has ever disposed of a larger volume of business during a semiliar period of time, and his record will compare favorably with that of any district judge in Texas. During the first 12 months of the term which Judge Roberts is now filling, as Judge of the 68th District Court, he has disposed of more than 600 cases. These cases were disposed of with such ability, fairness and impartiality than only twelve out of this entire number were appealed. The Court of Civil Appeals has passed on 12 cases tried before Judge Roberts, and lias re- versed his decision in only one out of the 12 cases tried, a record which we believe to be unsurpasse...

THE TEXAS MESQUITER JOHN f. DAVIS. Editor and Proprietor 0 1 HI I #" fl KM Si*: MESQU1TE, - TEXAS MARRIAGE AND DIVORCE. The question of divorces has beet under careful consideration for many centuries. The Pharisees tempted Christ by asking his judgment on the Mosaic law of divorcement, and re- ceived an answer direct and funda- mental. It has been a serious, a con- tinuous, a vexatious question from time immemorial, says Newark News. All gtfvernments, clerical and civil, have tried to settle it and have failed. Our own government and each of the states and all the courts have for many years been trying to establish uniform divorce laws, and to discour- age divorces, as much as possible. Yet they are Increasing Instead of diminishing. A few denominations will not tolerate divorces, but the civil laws recognize them. From the point of view of the latter the innocent party to divorce proceedings is guilty of no offense, ought not to be held in dishonor and should be permitted to marry...

t A MYSTERY OF SUICIDE ON EVE OF MARRIAGE f m WfC- rH-0 I W, M/i' fk f pO^ ' h L: Pp' i <£ZT&J1£.3 ttxevKxz «!>CX/; flSSga EW YORK.—What curl- ' oua kind of brain matter causes men and women, on the eve of an appar- ently happy marriage, to commit suicide? Can the brain storm be traced to a physical or an emotional Influence? Physicians and clergymen seem to agree that with either sex the act can generally be traced to emotional in- tensity overbalancing the reason. But at best the explanation Is a mere sur- mise, for the victim gt the sudden mania carries his or her secret to the grave. Letters found after the deed is committed are generally vague, some- times suggesting, but rarely revealing, the true motive. For instance, study the postal card messages left by Minnie K. Wentz, the twenty-year-old governess, who recent- ly turned from the gentle, beckoning hand of love to grip the relentless one of death. To her eldest brother, she wrote: "This will, I guess, be the last...

I lit ll I ^MPk-s EDWARD ZICKfr&so*— ITTLE BY LITTLE President Taft haa come into direct line with one of the Koosevelt policies, and he will follow It In the future as he has been following It for some weeks. It will be the rule at the summer capital at Beverly, Mass., as It is today the fixed rule of procedure In the White House. The Roosevelt policy which President Taft flually has adopt- ed as his own Is the method of receiving visitors which was in force during the colonel's tenure of office. It is possible that Pres- ident Taft never will be able to adopt the Roosevelt policy of getting rid of his visitors, because the two men are constitutionally different in at least one respect It must be said, however, that the Roosevelt plau of receiving guests has done a good deal to save the tempers of White House visitors and the time of Mr. Taft As everybody knows, an addition was made to the White House offices some time ago. In the Roosevelt days callers went Into the cabinet ro...

"Three o'clock next Fri- day afternoon," she replied. "Oh, that will be out of the ques- tion," he cried protestingly. "There's a special meeting of the Glitter Gold company that I must attend at that time." "Well, It's the only time I have," she told him with an air of easy resigna- tion. "Every other hour for the next two years is filled up." The man jerked his shoulder irri- tably. "I guess we'll have to call our little matter off, then," he said. "It seems to be inevitable," she agreed, Indifferently.
