"United We Stand, Divided
This is an old adage that we have
heaid from childhood, and age has
not detracted from its truth. We
also remember in connection with
this saying, the story of the old man
who had twelve^sons, to whom he
illustrated this truth by the means of
twelve sticks. In his declining years
the father called the twelve sons be-
fore him and handed to each of them
in turn twelve small sticks bound
tightly together with cords, and asked
them to break them. They tried in
vain to break the little bundle of
sticks, but the strongest failed. Then
the father took the bundle and sever-
ed the bonds that bound them togeth-
er and took each little stick separately
and broke them. When separated
the task was an easy one, but when
united it was impossible.
This adage is applicable to towns
and communities as well as the fam-
ily, for a to^n is only a big family
with a common community interest.
Divide this interest and you have
taken from it tis power for good, for
the best development of its resources.
Therefore, when a vital issue comes
up in a town or community it should
be honestly and impartially consider-
ed upon its merits only. What will
be its immediate and future benefits?
Is it necessary ror the future develop-
ment of our town and community?
Will the benefits derived equal the
cost? These are the questioos to be
considered, and they should be con-
sidered from the view point of com-
munity interest instead of individual
We have before us at this time a
question of vital importauce to Tex
homa, namely: the voting of $25,000
in bonds for building a wat°r and
light plant. There are only two
questions involved in the consideration
for this question: First; Do we need

the plant? Second; can we afford lo
spend $25,000 for it at this time? We
believe the citizens of Texhoma will
unanimously agree that we need the
plant, therefore, the firrt question is
eliminated, and we only have to con
sider the proposition of present and
future benefits to be derived as com
pared to the cost of construction and
oDeration. It is claimed when con
structed the plant will be self support
inp and likely pay some annually on
the interest. Every tax payer is
vitally concerned in this question and
should express his honest opinion
freely. The largest tax payers are
the mo-t concerned, and should
therefore give it their honest aud
impartial consideration. Let us con
sider this question from the view point
of present and future benefits to
Texhoma as a new and growing town
with future possibilities, and let evety
man speak and vote his honest senti
ments. Texhoma needs a better
and more convenient supply of watet
for domestic consumption; also a
better supply of water as a protection
against fire. These are some of the
benefits. Do vou need them? Do
you want them.

"Cardui Cured Me"
For nearly ten years, at different times, Mrs. Mary Jinks
of Tread way, Tenn., suffered with womanly troubles. She
says: "At last, I took down and thought I would die. I
could not sleep. I couldn't eat I had pains all over. The
doctors gave me up. I read that Cardui had helped so
many, and I began to take it, and it cured me. Cardui
saved my life! Now, I can do anything."
If you are weak, tired, worn-out, or suffer from any of
the pains peculiar to weak women, such as headache,
backache, dragging-down feelings, pains in arm, side, hip
or limbs, and other symptoms of womanly trouble, you
should try Cardui, the woman's tonic. Prepared from per-
fectly harmless, vegetable ingredients, Cardui is the best
remedy for you to use, as it can do you nothing but good.
It contains no dangerous drugs. It has no bad after-effect*
Ask your druggist He sells and recommends Cardui.
