CROCKETT, TEXAS, SEPTEMBER 10,19J4. VOLUME XXV—NO. 30. JAPANESE WILL BUY COTTON WHILE IT IS CHEAP. Agents From Orient Are Hurrying to Texas and other Southern States to Purchase. Tacoma, Wash., Sept. 5.—To buy southern cotton while prices are tew and rush it to the Osaka mills, Japanese agents have hurried to Oklahoma, Texas, and other cotton states. The war situation gives Ja- pan as well as the United States an opportunity for trade expansion. Great quantities of American cotton are needed.

He was, without doubt, a thorough state rights, state sov- ereignty man. He believed in the right of secession; but what I mean to s...

THE OLD TEXAS NAVY. 8tormy Career of the Lone Star Ro- publio'e War Vessels. In April, 1836, as we are told by a history of the Texas navy in the Texas Almanac for 1860, the Lone Star republic's war schooner In- vincible, commanded by Captain Jere Brown, encountered the Mexi- can schooner-of-war%Iontezuma off Tampico. After a battle lasting several hours the Mexican vessel yas badly damaged, but succeeded in escaping inside the port. While standing out from shore the Texas vessel discovered the American brig, Pocket, laden with provisions for the Mexican army. The brig was convoyed to Galveston as a prize of war, and the provisions were of timely assistance to the victors at San Jacinto, who were short of sup- plies. In retaliation for the seizure of the brig, the Invincible was after- ward captured while in the mouth of the Mississippi river by a United States war vessel and the crew charged with piracy. The judicial officers at New Orleans acquitted the Texafcs of the charge, afte...

OUR LIMITED SENSES. Tiwy o1 I m- ■ ¡ate Wi to Make U« Cognisant Many Thinga About Ua. If man were endowed with 200 senses, each at different from the other and as full of perceptive pow- er as the eyes and ears, the human race might the better be justified for its egotism. The scientific as well as religions opinion that man- kind "knows a thing or two" and is "lord of the beast* of the field, the birds in the air" and over all inanimate nature might then be at least more justifiable than with his present endowment of a mere "hand- ful" of sense organs. Besides ultra-microscopic living beings, some beneficial, some friend- ly and some inimical—witness the virus of rabies, of cancer, of in- fantile paralysis—there are millions and millions of real things in the physical world beyond the reach of our senses. Just as you feel heat, see light, hear winds, taste nectar and smell ozone, so if you were properly endowed with the extra, necessary hundreds of different or- gans you could sens...

"In the old days in Oklahoma/' said an old ranchman, "it was cus- tomary for cattlemen to drive their steers^rom Texas to the ranches in the territory. In following one of the trails it was necessary to pass through the Cheyenne reservation. In order to placate tbe Indians and secure their good*will it was cus- tomary to furnish them with a cou- £le of beeves, so that'they could ave a feast. __ -- . "One year I had gathered a herd -of several thousand steers, and with • a. few cowpunchers was driving them through the Cheyenne coun- try when without warning we were surrounded by a band of Indians in a hostile mood. I knew that a herd- er who had passed through the res- ervaron a few days previously had refused the usual tribute and that in the fight that followed one of the Indians had been killed, but the fact that there was a United States government agency in'v the vicinity with several companies...
