®he ®exas itlesquitec. By John E. Davis. MESOUITE, TEXAS, FRIDAY, AUGUST 26,1910 Vol.XXIXNo. 9 X AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF JOE SAPPINGTON X Written by Himself No one today, looking into my grave, intelligent face would be- lieve that my early life was filled with romance and religious fer- vor. That goes to show how de- ceptive outward appearances are. I came within an inch of fighting aduel before I was quite sixteen. This was no make-believe affair, but a regular duel with a chal- lenge and seconds and knives and truns and a lonesome meet- ing place down on the branch at sunrise. The other principal in this affair of honor was a white- eyed boy by the name of Hark Davis whose envy of me had caused him to become challeng- er; and like most ali duels, love was at the bottom of it. Briefly related, the affair came about in this way: Hark and I both were madly in love with Lucy Jones and she, being somewhat of a flirt, kept us both on her string, neither of us knowing how the other stood in he...

50C Wits and Wireless By M. J. Phillips Copyright, iyio, by Associated Literary Press "I am going to marry Nellie Arm- jtrong," announced Harry Lecla*-. He looked Just as his name sounds: he was handsome, with a very distin- guished profile, large dark eyes and a well set up figure. But his fingers were much stained with nicotine from too many cigarettes. He dressed gracefully, devoting considerable time to his clothes—principally because he did nothing else. "Ai;e you?" queried Paul Schmitz, quietly and unbelievingly. Schmitz was a civil engineer, whose rugged face, capable hands, rough clothing and high-laced boots indi- cated considerable familiarity with hard work and hard knocks. "Does she know it yet, Harry?" Leclair, being a consummate egoist with* no sense of humor, never knew he was being laughed at, and now he looked at Schmitz suspiciously. But the big man who was striding along heside him was very grave. "Well, no," confessed Leclair, satis- fied with his scrutiny. "But ...

rr,:, AS IT APPEARED TO HER Mr*. Oelrlchs Evidently Didn't Think Much of Mr. Blank's Earning Capacity. Mrs. Herman Oelrlchs, the best- Idrebsed woman In Newport, criticized very pertinently, at a recent dinner, the new dinner gowns of Paquln and Callot These clinging and filmy gowns are chiefly remarkable for the V-shaped iback that they possess. The V—It is Incredible, but it is true—opens all the way down to the waiBt line. At a gala performance in PariB given by the Metropolitan Opera company of New York—the most successful perform- ance Paris ever saw, and one whereat $40,000 was gained for the Pluvlose victims—many of the beautiful Ameri- cans in the $40 orchestra seats wore these daring gowns, and now at New- port they are often to be seen. Mrs. Oelrlchs stared at one with as- tounded eyes at a dinner, and her neighbor said: "isn't that new gown of Mrs. Blank's a dream? Old Mr. Blank is so de- voted. They say that everything he makes goes on his wife'* back." Mrs. Oelrlchs, he...

WHEN INVENTORS WERE FEW Boston.—In the spacious vestibule of that venerable and Interesting Insti- tution, the Boston atheneum, the city's oldest library, with Its wealth of literature and art ti-easures, Is a seated figure of large proportions that Is the first object to attract the eye of the visitor as he enters. This figure, seated there so calm and re- poseful, Is the counterfeit presentment of a noted American, a son of Massa- chusetts, and as such It is interesting, but aside from the great man that it represents the statue has an historical significance, Its chief claim to distinc- tion lying in the fact, as the visitor may learn by reading a small Inscrip- tion attached to It, that It Is the orig- inal plaster cast of the first bronze statue made in America.

Just before they reached the plant of the Mesquite Gin Co., the horse became frightened and ran away, .lust beyond the gin, the main street turns south and a little used street runs north under the railroad. Instead of following the street, either north or south, the horse kept on toward the fence in front of the corn mill and when nearly at the ience made a quick turn to the north. The turn was made so suddenly that Mesdames Miller and Duckworth were both pitched forward against the gate leading into the mill yard. Both ladies were br...

V / - ^ JJdvertisinji, (oalks WHEN YOU BUY ADVERTISING Remember, It Is the Newspaper That Creates the Tangible Cen- ters of Trade. (Oy O. M. EVENSON.) When our parents were satisfied to '"deal around the corner" there was no need for newspaper advertising. At that time the newspaper was simply a gossip distributer. But with the coin- ing of the five-cent street-car rides j and rapid modes of delivery we find j newspapers becoming a real factor in commercial advancement. There never has been and never will be any means for advertising de- vised superior to the newspaper. It Is the newspapers that create centers of trade, because they are the force that controls public opinion. When you buy advertising space you buy circulation, and circulation can be measured just as potatoes can. But it's the quality of circulation that counts, not the quantity. It therefore follows that a newspaper that has a circulation of 10,000 deliv- ered to the homes of people is more valuable as an advertisin...
