Btat« anua Capitol f ML \ She ®exas itlcsquiter. By John E. Davis. MESOUITE, TEXAS, FRIDAY, APRIL 14, 1911 Vol.XXIX No. 4 Prospects For Interurban Are Now Much Brighter The recent activity in connec- tion with Interurbans, resulting in the announcement that lines will be built foom Port Worth to Cleburne, from Dallas to Wax ahachie and from Dallas to Waco via Ennis and Waxahachie, has resulted in making the chances for the building of the Dallas- Terrell line, through Mesquite^ very much brighter. The suc- cess of the other Interurban lines in Texas, including the Dal- las-Port Worth and the Dallas- Sherman lines, has attracted the attention of capitalists. With lines already in operation north and west from Dallas and with the building of two lines in a southerly direction out of Dallas, now practically assured, the pro- posed line east from Dallas is the next logical line. Conferences have been held recently between those interest- ed in the building of this line and certain capit...

I'®.

Physicians prescribed for me, but with- out much success, and any relief obtained •was only temporary. I had severe pains in my back and at no time was I free of pain. When I stooped down it was with some difficulty that I could straighten my body again. I could not lift any ■weight of consequence without great pain. I would be compelled to arise and give the bladder relief. A friend of mine advised me to take Dr. Kilmer's Swamp- Root, whereupon I wrote to Dr. Kilmer for a sample bottle which so benefited m# that I was led to believe it would be a great help to me. Accordingly I pur- chased two bottles of Swamp-Root from Mr. A. P. Perry, my Druggist, and the eff ect has...

The Dallas Times Herald says the Democrats ought to make a clean sweep in Illinois next year. We hope so, provided it is not the Lee O'Neil Brown kind.
