1 Sparks from the Fire Waste Reasons for the Pledges Given Last Issue. Fire losses in the United States and Canada in 1910 were $234,- 406,500. Fire losses and the cost of fire prevention in the United Stateb amount annually to S450,000,000, or more than the total American production of gold, silver, copper and petroleum in a year. The cost of fires each year is one-half the cost of all the new buildings erected in a year. The annual per capita fire waste in the United States is $2.51, in Europe, 33c. Cause: The latter has better construc- tion, less carelessness, inoreased responsibility. If buildings in the United States were as fire proof as in Europe, the annual oost of fire losses and protection would be only $90,000,000. Fires in the United Statas cost over $500 a minute. The way to get lower insurance rates is to have fever fires. New York city spend $10,000,- 000 a year for fire extinguish- ment and $15,000 a year for fire prevention. The 90,000,000 people in the United Stat...

The Post-Signal. VOL XXXIV. PILOT POINT, TEXAS, FRIDAY, MAY 10, 1912. NO. 37 CLOTHES THAT KEEP SHAPE YOU know the importance to you of having your clothes keep shape; and you know how very uncommon this quality is in clothes. One very important point in giving clothes this shape-keeping quality is the proper shrinking of the cloth before it's cut. Hart, Schafner & Harx have their own process of shrinking, by special machinery which they invented. It's a process that would ruin any but all-wool fabrics; you can imagine what would happen to the common cotton mixtures or which most clothing is made if the fabrics were subjected to such a process. We just thought you might be interested in knowing why our Hart, Schafner & Marx clothes keep their shape so well; you can see why we like to sell them, isuits $18 and up. H. M. RUSSELL & CO.

TEXAS NEEDS GREAT MEN XXXVII. POWER ✓> YRUS THE GREAT founded the Persian Empire and ex- l|l ercised absolute power over a larger number of people than any other human. From a wandering horde ho or- ganized a vast wave of human power and grandeur which swelled and rolled on in undiminished magnitude and glory for many centuries. This powerful man was able to lift the soul of human- ity into the heights of reason and by his compelling and persuas- ive power lead them into higher altitudes of civilization. No event of importance in the human race was ever accom- plished without the guiding hand of a spirit of great power. i CYRUS THE GREAT ORGANIZING GOVERNMENT. Let those who search for authority understand that power is permanent only when the product of principle, that ability will attract the homage of the masses like a lodestar, and that the rare qualities of initiative leadership have always quieted seeth- ing humanity and organized turbulent masses into peaceful and happy com...

The books are selected with care so that they may en- tertain and instruct without cor- rupting the reader. No profanity or slang is heard here. The cup that inebriates has never had a...

r The Home Circle The Ideal Home. Dear Editor:—What do you say— "my idea of Home" in the space you indicate? A volume, and a large one, would be re- quired to disouae the mere out- lines of this subject. But you have given me some time to boil down my crude and imperfect ideas on this theme. A great writer, you know, said on one occasion. "This is a very long letter, but positively I had not time to make it shorter." "An Ideal Home," you say. Well, it must bo where love a- bide" rockrooted in confidence. It must be where physical com- forts are not wanting, but where luxury and pretense have not usurped tho places of peace and repose. There may bo more joy in the hovel than in tho palace; but y u are asking for the "ideal home, and such a home requires all the comforts. There must be music, because music is the language of the soul when ordinary language fails. There must be religion. 1 do not speak of creeds or doctrines or Bibles or prayer books. Tnere must be a deep, reverenti.il...
