Has recently saved two, houses from fire. One
on Franklin Street, where Mr. Geisberg lives. One
on McCully Street owned by N. C. Burriss. This
is well worth considering when you build a new
house or need a new roof. Insurance is less where
you use Burris's Shingles. We make a Barn Roof
th?t never leaks. No nails exposed to the sun. See
us before roofing your houses or phone us and we
will come to see you.

"Tt::as-There are three ages of
cotton in Texas. About 50 per cent of
the crop was planted ut tho normal
date; 20 per cent during May and thc
remainder after the rains had ceased.
The early planted cotton has stood
the two months, drouth remarkably
well: However, most of it has reach
ed the limit of endurance without de
terioration by the 85th instant. The
late planted cotton, in order to sur
vivo, spent its energies during tho en
