(fl 3 )—Following is the text of President Roosevelt's Texas Centennial speech here today: I have come here to bear the tribute of the Nation to you on your hundredth birthday; you are a hundred years' young. I am here also because I conceive it to be one of the duties and the privileges of the Presidency to visit, from time to time, every part of the United States. When I was, appointed assistant secretary of the Navy by President Wilson in 1913, I had visited, as I recall, only about twenty states, but during the next few years 1 had the fortunate opportunity of going into all the others. Seeing things at first hand is a good habit. I have bene fortunate indeed, for as n result of personal contacts with every part of the United States during many years past 1 Imve tried honestly to visualize the problems at every part, of the land In their relationships to every other part, and to the unity of the whole. This great Centennial Exposition is not for Texans alone, it is for the people of nil the other forty seven states as well. I hope that they will take full advantage of It. During the past three years, with the return of confidence and the great increase in prosperity, the excellent custom of getting acquainted with the United States has asserted itself. We see n great tide of travel by rail, by plane, by ship and by automobile. We are indeed seeing things at first hand- may the habit spread. Acres Don't Count Coincident with the return of better days, we have witnessed three great expositions: The Century of Progress in Chicago, so popular that it was kept open for a second year; the California International Exposition in San Diego which is open today in its second successful year; and the third is this fine exposition commemorating the century of the independence of Texas. May you have nil the good luck you so well deserve. It is not mere acres that count in this world. It is, rather, the character of the people who dwell upon them. You, the people of Texas, have been tried by .fire in these hundred years. You have commenced a war for independence. You have been apparently defeated, and then you have won out. You have gone through the difficult days o'f the war between the states and the tiials of reconstruction. You have had to fight against oppressors from within and without. Your farmers were among the first to rebel against exploitation by the railroads. In a period of monopoly, combinations, over-capitalization, high rates, poor service and discrimination against the small shipper, you established a landmark in the regulation of public utilities for the good of their users. Fought Corporations Later, when industrial development came to Texas, you were confronted by corporations that got out of hand. Here again you called into play the old Texas spirit of freedom for the individual, and out of it came your anti-trust laws, preceded by only one other state in the union. It is, as I recall my history, a fact that during this period there were many prophets of evil who foretold the ruin of Texas by the enactment of legislation to curb these abuses. Yet it is a matter of record that several years later an authoritative survey reported this: "No part of the union is more prosperous, no other state has so sympathetically pursued a policy of corporation regulation, and no other state is so free from the domination of special interests." Why did the people of Texas do this more than a generation ago? They believed in democracy in government, but they discovered that democracy in government could not exist unless, at the same time, there was democracy in opportunity. You found that certain forms of monopoly, the combinations of public utilities and other businesses which sought their own ends were undemocratic because they were bearing down heavily on their smaller competitors, and on the people they served. Because of this they were taking away opportunity. Today we have restored democracy in government. We are in the process of restoring democracy in opportunity. In our national life, public and private, the very nature of free government demands that there must be a line of defense held by the yeomanry of business and industry and agriculture, not the generalissimos, but the small men, the average men in business and industry and agriculture those who have an ownership in their business and a responsibility which gives them stability. Any elemental policy, economic or political, which tends to eliminate these dependable defenders of democratic institutions and to concentrate control in the hands of a few small, powerful groups, is directly opposed to the stability of government and to democratic government itself. If the tendency in the dozer* years following the world war had .been permitted .to pontinue, the Inevitable consequence would have been the destruction -of the base of our form of government. For its splendid structure there would have been substituted as a natural result, an autocratic form of government. A I iiave spoken of the of evil who plagued your great reforms in Texas. They were blood brothers of some who seek to operate on a national scale. After you in Texas had done so much to restore democracy in opportunity you found as we in other states found, that the evils we had sought to eradicate had merely Jumped'over the boundary into some other state. The old abuses of the railroads were finally curbed only after teeth were put into the interstate commerce laws and a nation-wide regulation was made effective. Banking reforms were tried in many states but here again reform became effective only when the federal government was enabled to operate throughout the union, first by the Federal Reserve act. and finally by means of the splendid legislation of the past three years. Individual states attempted courageously to regulate the sale of securities or the control oi exchanges, but you and I know that from the point of view of the nation as a whole, the effective curbing of abuses was made possible only when the congress of the United States took a hand by passing the securities act and the stock exchange act. Chiscllers Flayed So it goes with the constructive reforms of many other abuses which, in the past have limited or prevented democracy In opportunity. The more progressive of the states may do their share, but unless the action of the states is substantially uniform and simultaneous, the effectiveness of reform is nullified, crippled by the chisellers, who, like many other evil-doers, alas, are stfll witli us. The net result of monopoly, the net result of economic and financial control in the hands of the few has meant the ownership of labor us n commodity. If labor Is to be a commodity In the United States, in the final analysis it means that we shall become a nation of boarding houses instead of a nation of homes. If our people ever submit to that, they will have said "goodbye" to their historic freedom. Men do not fight tor boarding houses. They will fight for their homes. I have spoken of the interest which all the country should take in this great exposition. I mean this as a symbol for the concern which every locality should have in every other locality in every other state. The prosperity which has come to Texas through the products of its farms and ranches, the products of its mines, the prod- uts of its oil fields, and the prod.- ucts of its factories, has been made possible chiefly because other parts of the nation were in possession of the buying power, the consuming power, to use what you have produced. On the other side of the picture, thousands of factories and thousands of farms in the north and in the east have been enabled more greatly to sell their wares because of the prosperity of you, the pople of Texas. I have spoken not once but a dozen times of the necessity of interdependence of each state on every other state. It is a lesson which cannot be driven home or preached too often. Asks For Peace I have taken great happiness in these past three years in the lessening of sectionalism which is apparent on every hand. More and more we have been thinking nationally. That in itself is good, but it would not have been good if at the same time we had not come to understand more deeply that the national good neighbor policy must extend also to those neighbors who lie outside of our national boundaries. You in Texas whose boundaries extend lor hundreds of miles along those of our sister republic of Mexico, can well understand what the neighbor policy means throughout the Americas. We seek to banish war in this hemisphere, we seek to extend those practices of good will and closer friendship upon which peace itself is based. I salute the empire of Texas. • Gun Plowed Up Near Old Emma Is Recognized POST, June 12. (/P)—The rusted barrel of an old rifle on display here has an interesting history if a checkup of O. D. Cardwell, local historian, is correct. Last Christmas A. J. Moore, while plowing, about seven or eight miles southwest of Old Emma, in Crosby county, near League Four school, turned up the relic and gave it to Cardwell. Cardwell, talking to William (Uncle Bill) Hiatt, an old timer, at Spur mentioned the gun. The latter upon being told where it was found declared: "I bet that gun belonged to J. H. Hensley who was manager of the old 22-ronch in Garza county up near the Crosby county line.. "There'was a big prairie fire up there in 1883. I had come here in 1882. We all went out to fight the fire. "We cowboys took our rifles along and shot cows. After killing them we would drag the carcass through the fire to put it out. Finally, we stopped the blaze but we never coould find Hensley's 4-calibre Winchester. That fire was seven or eight miles southwest of Old Emma." The old gun barrel with a number of other old guns, collected by Cardwell and others probably will be shown at Dallas during the Centennial.

International Sunday School Lesson By DR. J. E. NUNN ^General topic: Jesus Crucified. Scripture lesson:—Luko 23:33-46. .33. And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right, hand, and the other on the left. .•34. Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots. |35. And the people stood beholding. And the rulers also with them derided him, saying, He saved others; let him save himself, if he be Christ, the chosen of God. And the soldiers also mocked him, coming to him, and offering him vinegar, 37. And saying, If thou be the king of the Jews, save thyself.- 38. And a superscription also was written over him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, THIS IS THE KING OF JEWS. 39. And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ save thyself and us. 40. But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? 41. And , we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss. 42. And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember,me when thou comest into thy kingdom, 43. And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee. Today shalt thou be with me in paradise. 44. And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the .ninth hour. 45. And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the -temple was rent in the midst. 46. And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost. Golden Text; — God commend- eth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.—Rom. 5:8. Introduction . "It is beyond the ability of man to fathom the mystery of Calvary. The fact (of the atonement) is infinitely greater than any explanatory theory of man. And more essential than our explanations of the cross is our acceptance of the Christ who upon its cruel timbers atoned for our sins."—William T. Milliken. "At the head of the procession of life is a thorn-crowned Man, the revelation of what man is to be and of what God is. The universe finds its consummation In sacrificial love—in a cross. . . The crown of life is a man, the crown of man is Christ, the crown of Christ is the cross."—E. Stanley Jones. The Crucifixion in the Gospels To gain a clear idea of the awful event it is important to corn- pare and combine the accounts of all four evangelists. Because of the excitement of the terrible hours each eye-witness who reported the story in after-years would remember certain particulars that had impressed him; so these several narratives differ, but are not .in, conflict. That there is some confusion as to the order of events and as to minor details, is perfectly natural. "They tell their story with a simple realism that makes 'their picture cut into the memory and heart of the reader. Their one over-mastering note would seem to be: This is your Saviour, dying for you! It has been remarked that the crucifixion is John 3:16 dramatized." The Forgiving 1 Saviour "And Jesus said, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do."—Ver. 34. This was the first word from the cross. It is a prayer addressed to God as Father for the pardon of Christ's enemies, It was a marvelous carrying out of the .command which Jesus himself had given many months before, 'that men should "pray for them which despitefully use you" (Luke 6:28). The prayer expresses absolute faith in God in the darkest hour of the world's history; it reveals Christ's conviction that his persecutors needed forgiveness, which implies that they were guilty. It reveals a marvelous love In the heart of the one who was dying that all men might be forgiven. (See Acts 3:17, 19). "And parting his garments among them, they cast lots." (See Psalm 22:18), "What a picture! The Son of God atoning for the sins of the world, whilst angels and glorified spirits crowd the walls of the' celestial COLDS FEEN-A-MINT THl DELICIOUS) L'HtWINC UUM IAXA1IVI BRYANT STUDIO Adams Hotel, 705 Main Street, Phone 385, Pampa Phone 2-2580, Fort Worth Wishes to announce to the H6lders of Our Courtesy Appointment Cards, regardless of when purchased, that cards will be honored 4 ur i n £ the month of June only.

Jesus ts Mocked by the Crowd Luke 23:35-38 "To kill Jesus and that by the most horrible means, between two criminals, with a sign above him stating that he was a king, while the executioners gambled for his garments, seems not to have been enough for this heartless bloodthirsty mob. they must also ridicule htm in his humiliating, dying moments. So they carried on a hideous mockery, with four groups participating, according to all records. First, the on-lookers in general passed by wagging their heads and saying that if he could save himself, and if he were the Son of God, let him. come down from the Cross. (Matt. 27:40). Second, the soldiers who did the executing not only cast lots for his garments but mocked -him. They said that if he were king of the Jews, let him save himself. Then the chief priests, scribes, and elders taunted him with saying that hie saved others, let him save himself. Also, if he would come down from the cross they would believe his claims (M;ark 15:32). And last of all, one of the criminals being crucified with him joined in and said if he were the Christ let him save himself and them, The Penitent Thief Saved—Ver. 41 'And he said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in Paradise." The word "Paradise" is used for the Garden of Eden (Gen. 2:8), and for that region of Hades in which the spirits of the blessed await the genei'al resurrection (Acts 2:31), and then heaven Itself (2 Cor. 12:4). Jesus went immediately into his Father's presence and to that home above, no doubt, he referred in this marvelous promise In all the stories of Jesus of faith reposed in him by human souls which I find in my New Testament, this man's faith Is the most amazing, and the most radiant, and the most wonderful." — G. Campbell Borgan. Love's Supreme Sacrifice—Ver. -46 "And Jesus, crying with a loud voice, said, Father, into my hands I commend my spirit: and having said this, he gave up the ghost." This is the last word from the cross. Luke records only the first, second and seventh words from the cross, and none of these are found in any of the other Gospel records. Jesus' last words (ver. 46) indicate that it was a peaceful, resigned, confident ending. "Breathed out his life" is more literal and sounds better than "gave tip the .ghost." (Mrs. Montgomery and Weymouth have "yielded up his spirit," as in Matthew, R. V.) "The veil of the temple was rent in the midst." (Ver. 5). It was the veil between the i holy place and the holy of holies that parted. The old dispensation thus expressing its .Indignation, or grief, at the outrage that was being com- mitted on - its long-expected Messiah. Of as a sigh that the mystery of the Sheklnah was how revealed and the Old Covenant . supplanted by the New." His enemies had now had their way and done their worst. For them that cross was a sign of their victory and his defeat. It was not long, however, before the devotion of Jesus' lovers transformed it from a cruel instrument of torture and hateful emblem of shame into a golden scepter." "Christianity was born of the cross; its message is symbolized by the cross; those who accept it must accept the cross."— (Lewis). THE CROSS "When I survey the wondrous cross On Which the Prince of Glory died, My richest gain I count but loss, And pour contempt on all my pride." BEAR MEAT NEW CASTLE, Fa. (*)— Nobody did anything about a big bear's depredations on sheep in the Potts Creek section until the fire warden took the initiative. He suggested immediate action by telephone when the bear kept him on his steel fire tower past supper time. The 275- pound bear fell to the rifles of Marshall Taylor arid Murrel Helms. IMAGINARY STOP ATLANTA, Ga. ;— L. O. York was arrested for driving past a~ stop sign at a through street. He pleaded guilty and paid a $4 fine.

So YoiV reop'ened the - case and succeeded in having the fine remitted.

Excited and curious, they gathered at the well daily. Quick-sand balked the first efforts. Stock was sold in the project. At last the object was raised. It was just a hunk of rock.
