Construction of Hard-Surfaced Floats
Enables Fire Department to Pro
tect Farmers.
Dallas county, Texas, has made it
possible for the rural districts to ob
tain protection from the fire depart
ment In Dallas through the construc
tion of modern hard-surfaced high
ways. A contract executed recently
between the Dallas City commission
and the county commissioners provides
for fire protection to farmers on nil
paved roads within a radius of 15
miles of Dallas. When a farmhouse
or barn along a paved roafl catches
fire all the farmer has to do is to tele
phone the Dallas department and It
Apparatus on Hard
will respond-at forty to fifty miles an
hour wlti a chemical engine or a
steamer as occasion may warrant.
Dallas county is one of the first In
the country to make such an arrange
ment Several fires have already been
extinguished with small loss. A gen-
eral reduction In fire Insurance rates In
th smaller towns and farming dis
tricts has been the result. The service
will be made more extensive when the
big road building program now under
way In Dallas county Is finished. Farm
ers affected by the arrangement are re
ported to be delighted with the protec
tion afforded.

However, It Should Be Intelligent and
Constructive, Not Destructive
and Detrimental.
Itoads are seen the most, used the
most, and needed the piost of any
public utility. It is natural that they
should be talked about because they
are continually in evidence. Every
now and then we hear criticism of
the road building program. Now crit
icism is one of the most necessary
requisites of success providing It is in
telligent and constructive, but criticism
that has no basis In fact is, to sny the
least, destructive and detrimental
While a well-aimed shot may bring
down the proper objective, a stone
thrown at random will do much dam-
ae and no good. If you want your criti
cism to do good be sure you know the
facts. Think before you speak.

Statute Challenged by Chicago Board
of Trade Held Constitutional.
Washington, D. C The gruin fu
tures act, placing all grain exchanges
under federal control and compelling
them to admit to membership repre
sentatives of farmers' co-operative as
sociations, was declared constitutional
by the supremo court Monday, the
court dividing, seven to two.
The luw was challenged by the Chi
cago board of trade, acting also In" be
half of other grain exchanges, on the
ground that trading in grain futures
was a matter strictly within the police
power of the states and outside the
jurisdiction of the federal government.
When congress, seeking to accom
plish the result aimed at In the pres
ent law, Imposed a prohibitive tax
on all future trading not conducted
on "contract" markets and required
all exchanges to place themselves un
der government control as a condition
precedent to becoming such markets,
the supreme court declared the law
invalid and an unconstitutional exer
cise of authority.
Promptly congress met the issue by
re-enacting substantially all the regu
latory features of the law, but based
its new exercise of authority on its
control over interstate commerce, de
claring that trading in grain futures,
unless properly regulated by the fed
eral government, could be made a re
straint upon interstate shipments of
Grain exchanges interposed un-com-
pronnslng objections. The govern
ment supervision was declared by
them irksome and impracticable, as
well as unnecessary, but their prin
cipal attack was made on that part
of the law which gave farmers' co
operative associations a right to mem
bership on the grain exchanges. This
constituted confiscation of property,
the grain exchanges contended, be
cause it admitted to membership in
the corporation men who would not be
governed by the rebating rules which
all exchanges had found Imperative,
and would give them an interest, in
the buildings and property of the ex
Paris. Wide divergence of views be
tween the delegates of the United
States and the allies on the question
of reimbursing the United States for
the cost of its occupation of the Rhine-
land developed Monday just as it was
hoped to terminate the negotiations.
When the latest Instructions re
ceived by Eliot Wadsworth, the Amer
ican representative, were put before
the other delegates they found them
of such a nature that they desire to
study and discuss them among them
selves before making any pronounce
ment. To give them this opportunity
Mr. Wadsworth withdrew.
Neither the American nor allied
delegates would say on what point
the conflict rested, but it was re
ported on good authority that it was
an essential point, if not a vital one
The allied delegations considering the
matter decided to refer it to their re
spective governments.

Lincoln vs. You
Lincoln belongs to the ages. He was a
man among men and all the world today
recognizes his genius of character.
T.lnpnln was Rplf-tnught. Instead of
waiting for someone to pound knowledge
into htm. he would walk mtlea to Becure
a book thnt he might pursue the quest of
knowledge which was a supreme passion
with him throughout ms me.
Lincoln instinctively knew that knowl
edge was the key that unlocks the door
tn tame and lortune. or any success irmi
man desires. He went directly after
knowledge to prepare himself so that
when his chance came he would be ready.
Ynn mnv look handsomer than Lincoln:
you may have more native strength than
Lincoln; you may have an intellect that
could easily be developed; but If you
have not the burning desire to develop
yourself, you are certain to stick In the
mud-sock class.
Knowledge Is distinctly a matter of In
clinatlon. If you do not secure knowledge
you are Just as certain to suffer for your
lack of development In a mental way as
you would certainly deteriorate pnysicany
if you laid In bed all the time and would
neglect to develop your musctes. hazi
ness leads to pain and failure. If you In

tion will force vou to Bay compound In

whipped and scourged and made to do the
meanest worK ot tne worm, me nuru
laws of necessity are sure to overtake
vnn. Vou must eat and neoole will Insist
that you earn what you eat. The whip
of necessity will beat your bleeding hack
and the sharp tongue of a heartless world
will tear to shreds your sensibilities. When
you are stretched on the cross of neces
sity, people of this world will crown you
witn tnorns ana drive into yuur iiesn,
nails expressing their scorn.
Lincoln knew that the world will never
forgive failure. Logically he equipped
himself to succeed and he did succeed,
You, too, can succeed, but you must pre
pare yourself for the battle ot life.
The ercatest asset In life Is a strong
character and the ability to express your
self. If vou are dumb as a dog you will
receive the reward of a dog, the crumbs
from some rich man's table, who under
stands the way to express himself.
The great mass of men have made no
effort to develop themselves. Nearly all
are capable of Infinite development, but
tnev no not remise it. -iney are
by the thought that they are Inferior
when In reality the only difference be
tween a successful man and themselves
Is development.
Thev could easily arrow If they would
get busy and develop themselves as Lin
coln ana otner great men nave uone.
Vou do not have to be a suner-man or
a giant of Intellect, but you do have to
be Just a little better than the average
to be selected to occupy a Beat of honor
and ease where you will work less and
get more.
If you slmnly develop the stiff hack
of a Jack-ass and the physical strength
of a mule you will naturally be paid for
brute Btrength and nothing more, because
that Is all your equipment will enable you
to render in doing the work of the world.
Lincoln wisely learned to talk convinc
ingly. We are offering Dr. Frederick Houk
Law's course on "Mastery of Speech,"
which will quickly develop your ability
to express yourself enectiveiy.
