Sling, who , purchased a plot of .ground near George Federolf, The Herald learns that Mr. Sling has about finished cleared some fifteen or twenty acres of land, a large portion -of rwhich he will plant to corn and sorghum, for cow feed. Mr. Sling also tells us he has about completed a" very comfortable resi dence -on iiis property and will soon be living at home. Mr. Sling . - . j isau cxpci icutcu kiui.v uiau, auu has an abiding faith in this section, which is proved by his purchase and " improvement of a portion thereof, f The Fish Try. The Baptist Sunday school fish fry yesterdav at Tucker and Con- ners' farm was very enjoyable. Plenty of fish were oh hand and the ladies supplemented these with an ample supply of cakes, pies, chick en, and other dainties which go to make an affair of this kind success ful. Ice cold lemonade and water melons were there too, wThich serv ed to keep the jolly little crowd cool. Fishing was the principal made of passing the time, even the smallest tot insisting on being pro vided with rod and line. The fin ny tribe suffered greatly, many of them failing to heed the warning given by a world wise mother fish to her insistent projeny, that "the horrid fly was but to hide the sharpness of a hook." The day was ideal and the attendants return ed in. the late afternoon, with beautifully sunbuaned noses, but glad they had gone. Those in the party were the following: S. C. Tucker and family, Miss Maggie Vail with P. E. Blalack's family, Mrs. J. W. Hancock, Mrs. J. M. White and two sons, Mr. and Mrs. J. K. Powers, Zula Terry Rev. Carlisle and son, E. W. Dickey and family. Miss Florence Bell joined the crowd in the afternoon. n "Lest We Fdrge.' i Fewer Gallons; Wears Longer. A Herald man met George Federolf, who owns an irrigated farm near Brownsville today. The gentleman has faith in the Browns ville country still and will plant about ten acres in tomatoes this year. Mr. Federolf tells us he will begin about the 15th of July, and will have the crop marketed before the danger of frost comes. Mr. Federolf lost about fifteen acres of fine tomatoes last December by trost, and says tne experience taught him lesson, which is to plant a month earlier. He hopes to hit the fall market full in the face when tomatoes are a luxury which cannot be had anywhere else. Fewer Gallons; Wears Longer. Appreciating the comforts of homeland having none of their own in Brownsville, A. Spero, N. Sacks and Jesse Wolff have rented the upper story of the building recent ly erected by Geo. W. Rendall, the lower floor of which is occupied by the Western Union Telegraph of fice, and moved into today. This building is one of the most attrac tively finished in Brownsville, and the gentlemen are to be congratu lated upon securing the upper por tion for sleeping apartments. Mr. Rendall has had the floors so car peted that the incessant ticking of the telegraph instruments below will not disturb the day dreams of the occupants above, nor prevent the absolute enjoyment of nature's sweet restorer "balmy sleep." Fewer Gallons; Wears Longer. The Herald reporter had the pleasure this morning of meeting J. T. Eton, one of the party of prospectors here from Rock Island. Mr. Eton says he is much impress ed with this section and believes it is the coming country. The gen tleman says he has a splendid place at Rock Island, and would be sorry to leave it, but said also he would likely one day become a resident of Brownsville. Mr. Eton says one thins: strikes him as strange and that is the absence of Cape Jasmine, which grows so luxuriantly in his home at Rock Island. Mr. Eton says he has three rows, sixteen feet apart, about 300 feet long, from which were gathered in one day 7500 cape Jasmine buds, and many more could have been taken. Hej also has fruits of all kinds on his home place. The Herald would be glad to welcome the gentleman and others of his party as perma nent residents of Brownsville. No! No! Of course that catches a crowd, hut Dad Kelly's attractions knocks 'em all. When they get to scrap ping over that cheap sugar it -will be worse than all. But in our case no one will be hurtjand all benefited. Sugar is a great luxury; everyone needs it. Say,- brother, do j'ou know sugar will draw flies and other insects and part of the human fam ily, and in the shape of candy will draw the girls also. If you give a cow a lump night and'morning she will always be on hand with her milk. It is better than salt or corn. No Reserve Seats at Dad Kelly's scrimmage to see slaughter in prices. Why pay' high price for sugar? Remember you good people of Matamoros, when you come over and buy our cheap sugar and gro ceries we will pay your fare across the river both ways, and when our Great Tampico Bridge is built you will get a free trolley ride and no scrapping over seats.
