Biftle Librarian Caplto' r-'!1 m m m X X Xt She 2e*as itlcoquitcr. By John E. Davis. MESQUITE, TEXAS, FRIDAY, MARCH 10, 1911 Vol. XXIX No. 36 Austin Letter. By The Editor. Austin, Texas, March 7. 1911. The news from Washington last Saturday that Senator Bailey had resigned created the keenest interest all over Texas, of course, but it is doubtful if it created as much interest any- where as it did here in Austin, where so many of those who have taken a prominent part for and against him. are assembled. His friends were made very sad by the news and their first hope was that he would recall his re- signation. His enemies were pleased at the news, but fearful lest he should withdraw his re- signation. Most of those oppos- ed to him were of the opinion that Senator Bailey had no in- tention of quitting the Senate at this time; that it was a piece of politics and that his object was to get another "vindication" at the hands ot the Legislature. His withdrawal of the resigna- tion before ...

THE TEXAS MESQUITER JOHN t. DAVIS, tditor and Proprietor MES QUITE, - TEXAS For tho time being gasoline Is the favoritp perfume. People who keep their sidewalks clean deserve at least honorable men- tion. If one swallow doesn't make a sum- mer, what don't three robins make? Spring? ' Manuel is to get $39,600 a year. Per- haps there is something in the king business after all. When rats are not disseminating the bubonic plague they are engaged In other nefarious practices. All the world loves a lover, but as to these noblemen who seek American girls with money It is merely curious. If those New Jersey people think that " 'hello' verges on profanity" what must they think of "line is busy"? Think bow many hen's eggs young McLean could have bought with the money he paid for that Hope dia- mond! Paris is making a move to elevate the moral tone of its literature and Its art.

COU/V7- assocja Friday, March 10, 1911. If T. M. Campbell had still been governor it is a safe bet that Bailey would not have wired his resignation. Whatever else Dallas needs, it is quite evident that at present the supply of candidates for municipal offices fully equals the demand. Gov. Colquitt can veto laws passed while he is governor, but he cannot repeal any law already 011 the statutes, for which we are duly thankful. It is true that there are some there that ought to be repealed, but there is good reason to believe that if he had the power he would repeal the wrong ones. Congress failed to pass the re- appointment bill, thus making it impossible for the present Leg- islature of Texas to re-district the state into new congressional districts. This means that we will all get a whack at the two...

Particularly the Ladies. Not only pleasant and refreshing to the taste, but gently cleansing and sweet- ening to the. system, Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna is particularly adapted to ladies and children, and beneficial in all cases in jyhich a wholesome, strength- ening and effective laxative should be used. It is perfec tly safe at all times and dispels colds, headaches and the paini caused by indigestion and constipation so promptly and effectively that it is the one perfect family laxative which gives satis- faction to all and is recommended by millions of faniilies who have used it and who have personal knowledge of its ex- cellence. Its wonderful popularity, however, ha* led unscrupulous dealers to offer imita- tions which act unsatisfactorily.
