CROCKETT, TEXAS, DECEMBER 24, 1914. VOLUME XXV—NO. 47. FARMERS AND MERCHANTS ARE CALLED OPON To Organize a Diversification and Market- ing Association for Houston County. Dependable statistics indicate rather ciearly that the south must carry over into next year a surplus of probably five million bales of cotton. If this is added to a nor- mal crop grown in 1915—say twelve to fourteen million bales—it means 5-cent cotton for at least two years to follow. An era of a reduced consumption of cotton is now upon us, which we are facing with a surplus carried over from last year and also with a fifteen-million bale crop now about harvested. These are stubborn facts and chey are facts that cannot be overcome by any hocus-pocus methods. They are facts that must be met and met squarely. The only way ...

I believe that the anti-alien land law is clearly dis- criminatory against the Japanese and therefore violates the spirit and letter of the American-Japanese treaty of 1911. The Wilson administration, I be- lieve, is inconsistent in its attitude toward that law. While we recog- nize that this is a most delicate and difficult question and, further, that no foreign power will presume to impose its will upon the American people in any question that con- cerns their sovereign rights, I be- lieve at the same time that the American government is in honor bound to right the wrong of violat- ing the treat...

Tsfv© SHOOTERS* ♦ ♦ ♦ NEW YEAR CELEBRATION > KING WITH HIS KObtb HELD UP BY PAGES. Philadelphia has the reputation of being one of the moet quiet and digni- fied cities in the United States, but once a year it lapses into unrestrained frivolity. The occasion is a curious oarnlval called the "New Year shoot- ers' parade," which is desoribed in i the Wide World Magazine by a resident of the city. FOIÍ three hundred and sixty-four days in the year Philadelphia Uvea up to its national reputa- tion of being the quietest city in the United States, but for one glori- ous day the Quaker town vies with New Orleans, Rouie and Paris as a center of friyolity suddenly stricken mad. It is a very methodical madness, however, for the chief participants in this great annual festival of Philadel- phia—which is known as the New Year "shooters' " parade—begin their i preparations for the following year as soon as the sun sets on the scepe of gayety on Jan. 1.

GOV. COLQUITT IS SCORED BY HARDY Representative Declares Texas Executive Is On the Wrong Track in Criticism. REPUBLICANS ARE REJOICING. Statement Attacking Wilson and Printed Sunday b Read Into the Congres- sional Record by Opposition. Washington, Dec. 29.—Republican members of the house of represen- tatives today inserted in the Con- gressional Record the article by Governor O. B. Colquitt, printed in Sunday's newspapers, attacking the Wilson administration. Comment was made that the statement would make "good reading" in the future coming from such a steadfast dem- ocratic state as Texas. Following this, Representative Hardy of Texas secured the floor and arraigned the Texas governor for his fling at the president and the democratic con- gress. The speaker referred to the Texas executive as "our governor," declaring that he is afflicted with "Wilsonphobia," and in making the attack was trying to erect issues upon which to make the race for the United States senate. "If the crash o...

" ' ■ m P r I V GETTING "SECOND WIND." Physical Chang** Occur That Oiva Fraah Lease o* Energy. The probable explanation of the second wind is as follows: In the deep breathing of an athletic per- son taking moderate exercise at sea level lack of oxygen plays no part. The effect is wholly due to an in- creased production of carbonic acid stimulating the respiratory center, which responds proportionally. On every violent exertion at sea level, however, and on even moderate ex-, ertion at a great altitude the oxy- gen supply to the tissues of the body is temporarily insufficient. Substances other than carbonic acid, such as lactic acid, are produc- ed, and when these substances reach the respiratory center by the way of the blood they excite it to such activity that one overbreathes— that is, the violent panting venti- lates the carbonic acid out of the blood more rapidly than the body is producing it. The substances which thus overstimulate the re- spiratory center are nonvolatile and...
