The Herald learns there will

by reason of the fact that reduced

sttraction chas been ottered to in
duce visitors to come to Browns
ville on this date. Oi course the
natural resources of the country
are a great inducement to visitors,
but The Herald is a firm believer
in strong and continued supple-
- mental work, and will always think
the 4th. should have been appro
priately observed.

The psrty of prospectors from
Rock Island, Texas, composed of
J." VTSheley and wife, J-W- Tink
ler and wife and John T. Line and
wife and son, J. T. Eaton and J.
T. Flournoy, who have been here
the past few dayr looking over the
country, left for home this morn
ing. The entire party is much
pleased with this section and some
of them expressed their intention
of coming back later and spending
a month, in order to have ample
time to thoroughly investigate the
resources which abound here.
In conversation before the train
left some of the gentlemen said
they were of the opinion this was
the coming section, and only need
ed development, which was as sure
to come as the night follows the
day. The Herald has used this
for a text at innumerable times,
and the subject is a fruitful one
which time is proving and will con
tinue to prove. The man who
comes here, uses energetic business
judgment, and brings to bear the
practical knowledge which is essen
tial to success in all undertakings,
will fine successful reward.
Among the passengers out this
morning a Herald man noticed
John Conner, who has been inter
ested in the People's Ice & Mfg.
company, on the way to his old
home at Hattiesburg. Miss. Mr.
Conner has disposed of his interest
in the ice factory to Messrs. Blalack
and Tucker, and will seek a new
location. Tbe Conner family have
been in Brownsville about one year
and have made many friends dur
ing their stay who will regret their
decision to locate elsewhere. The
family will remain here until John
Conner selects another location. In
conversation with Sid Conner to
day The Herald man learns -that
their faith in the ultimate success
of the Brownsville country had not
diminished, but conditions made it
necessary to change. The Herald
is sorry the family is to leave
Brownsville, but wishes them well
wherever they may locate.
It is. very gratifying to learn that
the rice crop in this section gives
promise of a most flattering yield
at present. Those who have been
disposed to look upon rice growing
in this region whith considerable
disfavor, are forced to admit that
conditions at present are all that
could be desired. Of course there
is no. method of successfully com
puting the outcome of the crop at
this stage,, but fifteen barrels per
acre woukUbea fair estimate." On
laud where last vear the rice, was
very spotted, this year contains a
Splendid crop.- Some of the most
advanced rice is beginning to head,
and our growers are much elated
over prospects. ,

Of course that catches a crowd,
but 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 hurt 'and all benefited.
Sugar is a great luxury; everyone
needs it. Say, brother, do you
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'inorning 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
