I Men’s and Young Men’s Hats for $5.00 I
A correct hat is a very important feature of a man's at-
Sg! tire. Wo have a great many shapes anti blocks of the $l.OO MB
ami $5.00 grades copied in a splendid quality at 53.00.
We do not think you will find an equal value and cer
tainly not the same styles and finish.
As far as the average man's knowledge goes they can
readily be mistaken for the $4.00 quality.

Nothing we can say about our new line of dollar shirt*
is half as convincing as what the line says for itself. We
can show what is the best in prevailing fashion in patterns

He stated the purpose of round up day
to 1* • stop to preserve the tradition*
of a fast vanishing character of man
hood that had never been equalled tn
the history of tho world, a type which
made it* own law* in the nbs.nce of
others, which stood on its own high
heeled boot* and fought its own battles
and won it* own victories. It wa»
thought to establiih the precdent of a
reunion for these old time range rider*
in order that they might meet and tight
again the fight* of the range, and hang
horsethieves in anecdote and brand 10,-
mat steer cow* each spring. Mr. Mor
ris* then introduced f’oloud Pryor.
Colonel Pryor'* talk was a re»tro«ppc
live one. He culled up memories of tho
good days when a ranch in Texas was
all out of doors, when a fellow could
hold a roping 1-0010*1 if he wanted to
without violating any laws, and when
the entreaties of the agricultural man
were not heard. It was au impressive,
dignified address and was received with
mixed feelings by the audience.
James Callan Speak*.
James Callan, president of the Texas
Cattlemen's association, followed with
an nddres* that kept bis auditor* in a
roar all the time. It was easy to un
derstand from watching the manner in
which tbo speaker swayed his audience
why he is considered one of the most
popular cattle men in the state. Half
of the speech slipped over the heads of
the laymen in the andience. Mr. Cal
lan is a typical cowman, who has gone
through all stages of the game, is eon
versant with ail the sayings and anec
dotes of the cowboys and their lore.
Home of tho anecdotes, which seems 1
without point to' the outsider, caused
the old-timers to stop the proceedings
for several minutes, while they laughed
Mr. Callan apologized for the fact
that few from his neck of the woods
were in attendance. He said that vari
ous reasons accounted for the fact. In
the first place on the first night out of
Menardville £ the first watering hoi?,
one of the member* had started a pa
thetic rendition of Ben Bolt that caused
one of the other member, to remark
that he had once heard a man sing the
song who could really sing it. In
the little argument that followed
the party was considerably decrease 1
in size. Then, on the last night out,
Tobe Woods’ outfit had slipped all the
rawhide hobbles off the horses and his
men were all out trying to
recover their mounts.
President Varies P. Brown of the
Fair association closed the speaking iu
a brief talk, telling how glad he was
to see all the cattlemen taking an in
terest in the fair. He said the associa
tion had provided a jjood show for
them, and he wanted them to enjoy
themselves to the limit.
“We’ve got races down there,” he
said. “Governor Campbell saw them
the other day, and it is said he bet a
box of candy against a cigar. If there
is any other betting I don’t know of
it, for I’m not a betting man.
‘‘However, late this afternoon there’s
going to be something pulled off in
front of the grandstand th»t will be
better than the races.
“It is a round up of the range, in
which Colonel Pryor, some of the Wests,
the McFaddens, Tobe Woods and oth
ers are billed to do the cutting out.
There will also be some fast branding
done. Help yourselves, gentlemen, its
your fair.”
Vote of Thanks.
Colonel Pryor proposed a rising vote
of thanks to the Fair association by
the cattlemen present, which was cheer
fuDV joined in by all.
The army team again won the polo
game this morning, the score being 4
to 3. After the game it was announced
that the game scheduled for tomorrow
would be played at the army post.
The brisk breeze blowing this morn
ing prevented a flight of the airship,
)mt it is hoped that before evening
there will be atmospheric conditions
favorable to a flight. Very little rain
fell at the grounds. The brisk shower
that fell uptown passed entirely aronnd
fair park, and the going is as good
underfoot as if no moisture had fallen
for days. The fact of the matter is
that the auto track could have stood a
little more moisture, but it can get
along without it.
Tomorrow will be a big one. Tho
school children, the drummers and the
farmers, in addition to the other at
tractions will make the grounds look
like San Antonio day.
For farmers’ day the speaking will
be held in the auditorium, beginning at
1 o’clock.
Much interest was shown yesterday
in the judging of cattle at the fair.

proval met the decisions of the judges.

The display of rice and rice products
by the Sunset railroad is one of the
most interesting and important in the
agricultural building. The exhibit also
includes numerous samples of other
products and resources of the rice belt
in the Texas coast country c.mtdtes,
which please and surprise tho visitors,
especially those from other states, the
majority of whom are apparently un
rler the impression that rice can only
be grown in a swampy country. \
These wrong impressions of the Texas
rice country are being corrected by tbc
facts presented in the Sunset rice ex
hibit on this occasion. The rice exhibit
proper comprises samples of rice in nil
stages and conditions from the field,
through the to the grocery store,
and includes ri<4 in the sheaf, rough
rice from the threshing machine (sev
eral varie(ies), highland rice, rice hulls,
bran, polish and flour, brewers’ rice
and the fine finished fancy or head
rice (Japan and Honduras). The rice
by products shown are of special inter
est and comprise rough riwgronud far
stock feed. There is also baled rice
straw and hat twine, rope, paper and
matting made from rice straw. Photos
of riee fields, canals, mills, harvesting
and threshing arc also displayed with
statements of profits made by rice
growers and the superior value of rice
compared with other foods.
Other important products of the Tex
as rice country include many fine sam
ples of farm, field and orchard prod
ucts; cotton, grain, alfalfa, merino, mo
hair, hemp, flax, jute, ramie, tobacco,
honey, oil. turpentine, salt, sulphur,
lime, paraffin, asphalt pumice stone,
sugar, peanuts, pecans, oysters, persim
mons. oranges, etc. Tho natural pr'»d ;
nets and. undeveloped resources of the
rice country are of particular interest
nnd importance. Paper from pine shav
ings, sugar cane and cotton stilks at'
tracts considerable attention. The mes
qnite wood, beans, cake. gum. oil. mu
cilage, honey and tanning bark all from
the mesquite tree arc particularly in
teresting Thon there are hops, camphor,
ginger, silk, >wire grass matting, pre
served figs, broom corn, native woods
and a dozen other valuable commercial
products all from the riee country.

joy the comforts of home cooking and
the other advantages not found in a
narrow atall.
While local dogs won their percentage
of the prizes, the visitor* are all satis
fied. Mrs. Hays of the Illini kennel of
Chicago, who exhibited 30 dogs, says
the show was one of the best she has
attended in many particulars and that
she will be here next year with a much
larger String.
