Communications Received In
dicate That Record-Breaking
Attendance Will Be Here.
Arrangements are practically com
pleted for the annual meeting of the
Commercial Secretaries’ association,
which convenes in San Antonio next
Friday morning. Secretary Carringt in
of the association says that from the
large number of communications re
ceived he expects that there will be a
large attendance from al] parts of the
state. Special convention rates have
been secured from all railroads for the
meeting and tickets are good t.o re
turn December 14.
Mr. Carrington stated this morning
that it will be the aim of the new
Commercial Congress to be organized at
this gathering to work along rhe lines
of the Trans-Mississippi congress, that
the body will bo composed of the busi
ness element of the state and that all
will give a united pull for all parts of
Texas. Special invitations have been
sent out to all commercial bodies in
southwest Texas and a good attendance
is expected from that section. A dele
gation of farmers from Hondo has sig
nified its intention of attending the
meeting and is expected to arrive here
strong in numbers and. assist in swelling
the crowd.
The Fight Is On
Every moment of your life, when
you are at home or abroad,
awake o* asleep -
Between the poison germs that are in air,
food and water, — everywhere in fact, —
and the billions of your invisible friends,
the little soldier-corpuscles in your blood.
If these little soldiers are kept strong
and healthy by taking Hood’s Sarsa
parilla, you need have no fear of dis
ease. Begin using it at once if you are
at all under the weather, or have
troubles of the blood, stomach, liver
and kidneys. Get it of your druggist.
Local Politicians Look on Mo
berly's Appointment by the
Governor as Significant.
In the belief of San Antonio poli
ticians the recent appointment of Repre
sentative Moberly of Ennison county
to the office of assistant district at
torney to fill that vacancy, is a strong
indication that Governor Campbell does
not intend to call a special session of
the Thirty-first legislature.
Representative Moberly has been one
of the governor's strong men in the
lower state body. He has been a strong
advocate of the Campbell policies and
has been referred to as the governor's
“right-hand man.’’ He was supported
by the chief executive for speaker of
the house at the last session.
The removal of this strong adherent
from the ranks of the legislative body
is taken as an indication that there is
no further work in store for that body
during the Campbell administration.
Governor Campbell has made practi
eally no statement as to whether or not
he would call a special session to act
ion the report of the penitentiary in
- vestigating committee outside of the
iphrase, “I will call a special session
if there seems any imperative public
'necessity for one."
The recent appointment of Mr. Mo
berly, relieving him from legislative
ranks and breaking the governor's
strength in that body is regarded as
being almost equivalent to a declara
tion that the wishes of the penitentiary
investigation coinmitte for an immediate
special session will not be fulfilled

We Tell You Again
In All Candor, We Repeat:
That you may go where you will, travel the country over, investigate every prop
osition of merit in San Antonio and you cannot find a real estate investment
that will appeal so strongly to a man’s best judgment as that
peerless block of acre tracts known as
T hp r p is not a nrooosition on the market that offers so much for the money—that offers so great an increase in the value
of vw investment in accordance with the amount of money required to put you in possession of the Property. We are
selhna acre tracts at the door of the biggest, most prosperous and fastest-growing city in Texas at prices demanded
for residence lots in country towns. Investigate the country over —go back into the history of the men of real wealth
in thk countryan yo vII find that fully three-fourths of them made their money by Investing in property adjoining
and** growing commercial center. These men bought land and let it lay idteuntil irt was demanded for
business and residence purposes. They had no such chance as you have today in Artesian Gardens.
An Acre in Artesian Gardens Will Produce-the Purchase Price
Your land does not have to lay idle. An acre in Artesian Gardens will produce from $5OO to $lOOO every year in fruit and
aarden truck You can rent your acre for $25 to $5O a year. That is a net income, because we do not charge you
any interest on deferred payments, pay the taxes until 1911 and furnish you water free of charge. You pay frorn $250
to $450 for an acre tract, $5O cash and $lO per month. Your rent will soon pay for your land and get you the benefit
of the enhancement in value. Just so soon as you put your land in cultivation the price is enhanced 50 per cent. Arte
sian Gardens is the same character of soil as the Collins Gardens, and you cannot buy a foot of the Collins Gardens
propel have the same kind.and quantity of water supply and in addition surface
water in unlimited quantities is obtained at 40 feet, which is a double guarantee of sufficient and everlasting moist
ure for your crops. . .
Artesian Gardens are only half a mile from the city limits, on a perfect macadamized road that leads right into the heart of
the city—you can drive it in 30 minutes, and Artesian Gardens are only a few blocks from the San Fernando car line.
Make Your Home at Artesian Gardens
And vou can live better than bankers live—Live better on less money than it costs you to live now. You raise your own veg
d Stables, your own chickens and eggs: have a cow and a pig and a horse. It requires no money for these luxuries when
vou live in Artesian Gardens. You raise your children in a pure, untainted atmosphere—make them strong and
healthy and teach them self-dependence. That’s something to consider. You cannot procure a small lot in any rea
sonably desirable neighborhood for the money. Think of the convenience—the air space—the elbow room.
Give Us a Chance—We Will Prove It to You
If vou will call at our office, or let us call at yours, we will take you out to Artesian Gardens and let you judge for yourself as
to the truth of our statements and as to the merit of our proposition. Let us show you-you decide for yourself.

The fire department responded to two
alarms of fire Tuesday as the re
suit of chimneys catching fire. The
first alarm came at 6 o'clock, causing
the department a run to West Ever
green street. No dainige resulted.
The second run occurred at 10
o'clock. When fire was started in the
heating stove at the home of Mrs, F.
Pfaendlcr, 103 Kansas street, the paper
used to elose the fine hole in the ad
joining room was forgotten, with the
result that it became ignited. An
alarm was turned in during the excite
nrent. The fire had been extinguished
before the arrival of the firemen.
