The TwiceaWee Herald. VOL. XXI. AMARILLO, TEXAS, FRIDAY, JUNE 15, 1906 NO. 48 A CIVIC LEAGUE Mayor Miller Asks For Co-Opera-tion and Organization of Ladles Civic League. With a good sidewalk ordinance on record and a willingness on the part of the citizens of Amarillo to push this movement to the front and co-operate with the mayor and city council in assisting in the securing of new sidewalks there should be nothing now in the way of general sidewalk building throughout the entire city and the replacing of the present rotten board walks with substantial cement and vitrified walks. With this end in view, Mayor Miller ask for the assistance and co-operation of the ladies and urges the formation of a Civic League in the following language: TO THE LADIES OF AMARILLO. You are probably aware of the movement which is now on foot to wards the securing of sidewalks and a park, for our city, and I am sure that you realize the necessity of this much needed improvement. The city council has passed an ordinance, which is published in this weeks "Hsrald," but I wish to call your attention to the fact that there are certain Statutory Laws in Texas, regarding homesteads, which will greatly hinder us in the strict enforcement of this ordin ance, and as Mayor of Amarillo, I reauest vou. individually, to meet me at the court house, June 18th, at 4 p. m., for the purpo. e of or ganizing a "Ladies Civic League" who will co-operate with me in the sidewalk proposition, building of a park and the general improvement and beautifying of our streets. You will agree with me, when I say that a public park would be of more benefit at this period of Ama rillo's history than at any other time. It would be a place for our boys and young men to go. whereas they now go elsewhere. It would be a place of innocent amusement, and in my opinion it is one of the best ways of saving the boys, and I assure you it will save the officers of the law a great deal of trouble. It would be a happy meeting place for our children, a nice resort for our visitors, and the pride of our worthy citizens. There are many other important matters in which you ladies can as sist us, especially in devising ways of keeping our city clean. We 6hould do this much from a sani tary point of view, and better still, if "Cleanliness is next to Godli ness," we should have a double mo tive in seeing that the general con dition of our city is what it should be. I cordially ask all who have the interest and welfare of our city at heart, to meet with me at four o'clock at the court house next Monday, to discuss these Important matters. Yours very truly, Will A. Miller, Jr.. Mayor of Amarillo. Land for exchange 3 to 5 sec tions, good Panhandle land to trade for registered stock cattle.

Milller Land Company turns over 160 acres of land, six miles northwest of the city, on the Fort Worth & Denver Ry", to the Baptist Young People Union, of the Panhandle. The design in purchasing' this tract of land is to hold an annual encampment or religious Chautau qua; and, tor this purpose, the lo cation is unmatched in all the Pan handle. As one gets off the train on the grounds and not a mile, half mile, nor a yard away, there being a Mag station and watering tank already there, he is impressed with the thoroughly characteristic and yet picturesque view that is be fore him. On either side huge-back-bone ridges, though broken off abruptly by some overwhelming primeaval flood which burrowed out the quiet valley below, project their ponderous, mountoneous forms sheer into the edge of the slumbering cove and present a strong back ground to the whole view. Looking northward, one dis covers that the grounds lie in a three cornered plat, nearly a mile north and south, that a bounding, abundant, perennial creek winds its tortuous way throughout the grounds; that skirling this stream there is one of the most commodi ous and inviting groves of cotton wood trees to be found in all the Panhandle. Then, as one walks out on the grounds, he marvels at the possi bilities of the place, when once the tsaptis; young people nave given their attention to beautifying it. near to the railroad the creek makes a horseshoe bend; how easy it would be to cast a dam across the stream below the bend and convert all the upper Dart of the creek into a large body of still water where boating, bathing and fishing would form a splendid and inviting repast! Then with the water raised by the dam one sees how readily it may be lead off to the north by pipes, to a large sway or draw where one or two more very large lakes, cover ing 30 or 40 acres, could be con structed. Again, as the grounds are. subirrigated and water to be had within 20 feet, it would cost little to have a beautiful park be tween these lakes, with all kinds of trees, shubbery and flowers, as well as to fringe the lakes with the choicest flowers. Moreover, the sand and the gravel are already here for the contruction of walks and drive-ways. What else? Why the beautiful rise between the two lakes to be affords the place for the erection of the tabernacle around which on all sides the young Baptist hosts, as Israel of old, shall gather in tents and camp houses, erected upon lots laid out in squares and offered for sale to those who will doubtless improve and beautify them. And all these improvements the Baptist young people expect to make real within the next two qr three years. Among the best speakers in all the southland have been secured for the first encampment, which will take place August 13 to 22, 1906. Many of your friends who live in lower altitudes and who find it well, nigh unbearable during this month would be glad of an op portunity to spend a month or two in the Panhandle and take advant age of what will be the greatest re ligious gathering of young people ever assembled in the Panhandle. The program in full will be an nounced the coming week, together will full announcements as to rail road rates, etc. Clip this statement out and send it to your friends who are and will be sweltering in lower altitudes and give them a personal Invitation to join you in your tent or your home for thit gathering.

The South Plains Automobile line, whose headquarters are in Lubbock, has received two out cf the seven autos ordered, two more have arrived in Canyon City, and the other three will be shipped as soon as possible. The autos are of the Buick pattern, well and substantially constructed, and are specially adapted to running over country roads in all sorts of weath er. They are comfortably uphol stered to relieve the traveler from the weariness inseperable from go ing long distances in mail hacks. Each machine will accommodate four passengers in addition to the chaffuer, and will not be overload ed. It is the intention of the man agement to begin operating on schedule time between Lubbock Canyon City via Hale Center, Run ning Water and Tulia. Two ma chines will leave each terminus daily, and will reach their destina tion in 1 or 8 hours, beginning on or about July first next. Each ma chine is of 22 horsepower and car ries a canopy to protect passen gers from sun and inclemencies. At first the state roads will be used, but as soon as the efforts now being made are crowned with success the right-of-way of the "Panhandle railway" across fields will be used, mater ially lessening the distance and shortening the time if deemed ad visable. Such is a brief outline of the new and excellent means of communication to be inaugurated between Lubbock and the outer world, all due to Lubbock enter prise and capital.
