Ono Year, Postpaid $1.00
Entered at the Shiner Texas, Post
Office as second class matter.
SHINER, TEX. THU DEO,, 7th, '03.
We call special attention to
tlio advertisement of Charles K.
Ilolchak, which appears in this is
huo of the Gazktiik. Mr. Ilolchak
lias made a movo in tho right di
rection and is the result of what we
have already said about buying
away from home. Oar fellow
townsmen have made numerous
orderB with salesmen from Houston,
San Antonio, Galveston and other
places when they would, if they
had only thought, have made- the
eatno orders with their home mer
chants and kept their money at
home. Mr. Ilolchak has decided
to mako a specialty of tailor-made
clothing ami will blipply every ono
in Shiner and vicinity. Ho makes
the following statement about the
matter: "For tho very s.tine, or
lead money, I will furnish the miiiio
goods and will guarantee just as
good.if not a better fit than you e.m
Set in Houston or any where. I
have started in to work this thing
for all it is wurth.and I want every
body to know it." This is not an
ndveitisoment, but a news item.
We havo started a crusade against
buying away from homo and wo
are going to keep it up. Wo would
not accept an advertisement of Ed
Kinm or any other distant clothing
house if it was paid for in gold iu
advance. This question of buying
away from homo is ono that you
havo never seriously considered be
fore, but wo want you to think of it
well and long now. Quit buying of
traveling salesmen, peddlers and
quacks?, and stand by your true
ii lends, your home merchants.
