It is a llattoring commentary
on tho town of Shiner to note how
glad its citizens aro to get back
homo after visiting some oilier town.
As a pleasant, attractive, business
like littlo town, Shiner can't bo
beat in this part of tlio state. Said
a well-known traveling man the
other day: "It is a ple.isuio and a
relief to mo to stop over a eouplo of
days in Shiner. It is tho nc.ite.it,
coolest, cleanest, busiest town in
southwestern Texas. It doesn't
make a bit of dillerenco ihat time
of the year I come hero I am al-
uayjt able to do a good business,
yotShero is a uiilroad town not a

Concerning Tlmt Alr-Mtio lt.ill
Shiner's prospects for getting
that lailroad fiom Galveston to Han
Antonio aro at this writing in no
wiso impaired. Tho route o(l'nug
the best inducements will be the
one finally adopted, Now tho facts
of the case are tint thd route by
IlaUetsUlle, Shiner and Gonzales
is tho one that offers the bc nat
ural advantages. Tho finest fann
ing legion in tlio slato is found on
this routo, -hilo tho natural for
mation of tho country -nill gieatly
facilitate its construction. Tho
towns fmnd on this loute ate
tlnifty and prosperous and can
and will contiibuto as much money
as can be subset ibeil elsewhere
The ono thing needful is precon
certed action on tho part of tlio
towns on this l onto and tho road
will como. A gl mco at the man
will show that tho abovo routo is
tho most diteet. A lino drawn ou
the map from Galveston to S.m
Antonio will pais through tho
towns named abnvc. And wo firm
