We have had but little to
of late of this department for
simple reason that owing to a
very heavy early Spring trade
our stock was badly broken, not
to say in a rather dclapidatcd
condition, owing to the fact that
our buyers were "laying low"
watching the opportunities to
make deals that would make
competitors howl.
We are now opening large in
voices of

and arc showing everything new
and nobby in men's, boys, and
children's suits and pants, and at
prices that will make business
hum.'
We claim to be in position to
save our patrons big money, and
don't ask them to take our word
for it cither.
Take the trouble to investigate.
We don't charge anything to
show you through the stock.

A number of resident stockholders
of tho Lone Star Cotton Picking Ma
chino company and others met last
night, in pursuanoo to tho call of Col.
E. J. Gurlcy president, at the Board
of Trade rooms for tho purpose of
hearing tho reports of thoofficors a to
the finanoial condition of the com
pany. Col. R. 1L Parrott was elected ohair
man and called tho meeting to order.
Mr. Seth Tomer was then oallod
upon and addressed tho asscmblugo at
some length as to the progress being
made, and expressed his perroot confi
dence in tho machine, in ajshort time,
being reoognized as the greatest inven
tion of this or any other ago. Ho com
pared tho progress of the Lone Star
Cotton Paker with that of the Marsh
harvester, tho McCormiok reaper, tho
Howe sewing niaohlne, the Bell tele
phono and many other of tho most im
portant inventions we now have, and
showed, conclusively, that in point of
rapid progress, the ootton pickor far
exceeded them all. Twenty-seven
years alter the first reaper was mado
the machino was yot not as near per
fect as the Lone Star Cotton Picker is
to-day. Inventors of tho most won
herful machines havo been consid
ered fools and cranks and
had persevered under the
most adverse circumstances till they
succeed. The history of Ilowe is worth
relating. Ho managed to get hold of
$300 with whioh ho built a machino
and gavo an exhibition of its work,
lie succeeded in sowing five seams
quicker end better than fivo ladies
couia oy nana; yet no uouy would
back him with monoy. In ono of his
trips he had to leave bis wife's cloth
ing behind, because ho hadn't the
money to pay his wash bill. Bell,
walkod around Boston all summer
thirteen years ago because he
couldn't Bell telephone stook enough
at b cents on tho dollar to buy a new
one. He predicted from tho phenome
nal sucoess already attiaiucd in such a
short time, that the cotton picker
stock would in a short time equal that
of the telephone. Ho said that tho
patents were all right, about 200
already having been scoured. Some
parties had found fault with the com
pany for not buildirg a grfater num
ber of machines laBt year. We should
profit by tho experience of others and
not put too many nnper-
fcot machines on tho market. Marsh
Bros had built -100 harvesters and by
hard oxcrsion was only able to keep 'J
of them in operation ana after adding
many improvements built only 40 for
the next 6eason. There has been no
maohino in tho history of tho couttry
that has mado such rapid progress and
with as great economy as the Lono
Star Cotton Picker and tho timo will
soon como when you will appreciate
tho work that has been done.
Col. E. J. Gurley was next called
upon and reported tho financial condi
tion of tho company to be first class,
giving tho total amount of capital
stock, the amount of cash realizod by
tho sale of stock in 1800, tho amount
subscribed in Waco and Chicago, the
amount of stook still unsold and tho
value of real estate, buildings, ma
chinery, etc. in Waco. Ho expresses
tho firmest confidenco in the success of
the enterprise. Ho said fur
ther that under tho presont
management that tho oompany
would never go iu debt; that the small
stockholders would bo taken oare of
aLd not allowed to be frozen out.
Enough stock had boon sold to get the
company out of debt and place her
upon her foot and more would bo sold
to carry on the business.
Dr. Brown noxt spoke enthusias
tically of the work of the machino
as witnessed by himself 'and Dr.
Scars. Ho said that it picked the oot
ton oleanor and better than tho ne
groes at work in the same field did,
and that he was willing to sign a state
ment to this efTeot.
Mr. James B. Baker mado a short
specoh and was lavish in his praiso of
tho work done by the . aohino. Ho
expressed himself as pr tly satisfied
with tho progress e' ,, made and
was confident that .aco would bo
prouder of her cotton pickor than any
other business enterprif e she has ever
had. Tho machino made
a record iu tho field last soa-
1,1891.
the
itn-
nvention and there was no room for
duubt ot its p rloct suocess.
Mr J D Shaw stated that he had
been appronohed by a ccrta'n banker
in this city who deeirod to purehaso
his stock nt a small price but that he
informed him that his stook was worth
100 cents on the dollar.
Several other .cntlemon made tho
sanio statement and deolared they had
no cotton picker stook for sale
The following was read by Col. S.
II. Pope, soorotary of the Waco Hoard
of Trado and tho statements therein
mado re affirmed:

miles from Waco, whero a field had
been reserved for that purpose, and wo

proved by said company, picks a larger

above mentioned date.
