Under that system places were to

There were pigeonhole for "bills to

McKlnney, waa struck by lightning.
He la In a very critical condition, but

curdling maledictions. the entire dental
collection dropped out suddenly In the
excitement of the moment and bound

an unintelligible mumble aa be groped
about frantically In search of tbe ml

what seemed like half an hour of tho

I am now operating my Ice factory
and fan system Jointly and am pre
pared tit supply Bryan and all the sur
rounding country with lee. I cannot
dispose of It however and am compi
led to close down at night. There is
no necessity for shipping Ice Into
Bryan from Houston or other ou'tide
points when we have a factory here
for Its manufacture that can supply
every demand, that gives employment
to labor, that helps the business of the
city with t payrolls and pays Its
taxes to help supMrt the city mid
county governments. I want the peo
pie of Bryan to know they get their
money v worth when they buy b'e
from the Bryan Ice Company. .My
Ice weighs 31U pounds to the block,
yet I am selling It at the rate of 210
pounds to the block. Do you not think
this liberal treatment when 70 pounds
out of every block Is absolutely given
away. You will not find another Ice
plant that will do this, therefore when
you can get this liberal treatment
and cheap prices why help to ship Ice
Into Bryan and thereby tear down a
home enterprise, 1 have sold to other
Ice dealers lu Bryan but seven blocks
of Icq In seven months, notwithstand
ing the fact they ran buy It from me
at their own figures. This forces me
to close down at night when the fan
circuit U off. which throws several
men out of employment, anil also for
ces me to additional expense of star
ting up the machinery the next morn

their patronage, keep the plant busy
