The Maus Drug Store
The removal of the Maus drug
store to the new brick building is
now completed. We like to give
credit for every progressive move-
ment that is made which will tend
to benefit our town and community
in any way and we truly believe
that such buildings and stores as
the ones just installed by Mr. Maus
are the main factors in the develop-
ment and prosperity of any town.
This is now positively one of the
best arranged drug stores in the
Panhandle country. The drug de-
partment, the jewelry department
and the soda fountain are all to be
classed with the best to be found,
and the office rooms in connection
with the store afford a great con-
venience to the general public as
well as to those who have charge
of same. The electric lighting ar-
rangement in this store is the finest
that can be found in this part of
the country, and the electrice sign!
which is attached to the front of |
the building is worthy of special
mention Mr. Maus is rightly re-
ceiving the congratulations of his
friends and neighbors for the pro-
gressive movements he is putting
into practice in the upbuilding of
the town and community. The
town may well be proud of such
buildings and such stores as this
and The Times wishes to personal-
ly congratulate Mr. Maus for the
faith and confidence he is showing
in the future prosperity and develop-
ment of our town and community.

Such has been the case several
seasons here, and in order to have
games we must have clubs with
i which to compete. Should this

game, the fact of the matter is that
they would be unable to get any
games in the future. It has been
so before and would be so again.
We do not think that there are
many folks in town who would give
this matter little enough considera-
More Good Rains
Local showers visited various
parts of this section during the
early part of this week, and Wed-
nesday night and Thursday a good
rain fell h?re which seems to have
been general over the greater part
of this section. Hail is reported in
some sections, but no damage has
resulted therefrom as far as can
be learned Farm work has been
in progress most of the wees and
farmers are pretty well up with
their work at this time.

Base Ball Today
Weather conditions proving fav-
orable, the Hooker ball team will
be in Texhoma today, Friday, to
compete with the Texhoma team
on the local diamond. In fact, this
will be the real opening game of
the base ball season here. A couple
of games have been played, but it
has been arranged all along that
the opening game would be played
on the home diamond, so this game
will be considered as such. Every-
body is urged to be present. The
game will be called at 3:30 o'clock
and there is no reason why there
should not be a big crowd at the
game. No arrangements have been
made but it is our belief that the
business houses will close for a
couple of hours upon this occasion
so everybody can attend the game.
Come out and help the home team
win. The admission is only 25c
for adults and 15c for children,
proceeds to go toward defraying
the expenses of the visiting team.
Remember the date and time. The
game will be called promptly at
3:30 o'clock. Battery for Texhoma,
Bondurant and Butterbaugh.

who would like to get around the
matter of assisting the team by
making all kinds of fuss just be-
cause the team lost a game. When
you have the pleasure of seeing a
real good game of ball and then
have the displeasure of hearing
some fellow bemeaning the home
team because the game was lost,
you can simply figure that he is
the sort of fellow who is not giving
the matter just consideration, or
either is one of the fellows who
j does not want to contribute to the
support of the team. T^e Dalhart
j management said when this game
was ended: "We always line up
the very best material that can be
had when we play Texhoma, be-
cause we know that it is going to
be a ball game." It is no disgrace
to lose a good ball game, on the
other hand, many times it is of
much benefit to the losing club be-
cause in that way some of the
weaker places can be patched up
and the team is benefitted thereby,
and all of these matters should be
given just consideration. If our
team is not a good one, if we all do
our part we will get busy and make
it better. You must remember
that the team has received no sup-
port or encouragement this year
from any of the outsiders, but this
support is expected and when it

The Crop Prospects
T' • f
At planting time there is little
advancement made as far as grow-
ing conditions are concerned, with
the exception of wheat, oats, barley,
etc. The latter named small grains
have been making wonderful grow-
th all along and never before were
prospects better for heavy yields
of all small grain. At planting
time there is not so much mention
to be made concerning the growing
crops, with the exceptions above
stated. Now that planting is al-
most completed the country is find-
ing itself in splendid condition.
Row crops are coming up and look-
ing the best ever. Most of the
farmers, it seems are getting a good
stand of feed stuff at the first plant-
ing. It is a sure thing that the
crops which are now coming up
will get away from the grasshop-
pers should they be numerous this
season. It is reported that young
hoppers seem to be in aboundance
at this time and when such condi-
tions prevail it is very advisable
that crops be gotton up and out of
their way before the hoppers get
large enough to do damage to the
crops. Practically all of the dam-
age that is done by them to row
crops is inflicted when the crop
is coming up, so the early plantings
are preferrable. The country is
looking good. It never looked bet-
ter and could look no better if
special orders were complied with.
The Panhandle country will, with-
out doubt yield another crop of
aboundance in every particular

combination of thoughts that would

done to help the team? Have you
predicted failure and knocked and
then complained at the results
which have so far had a slight

have no interest in the welfare of
