It is very gratifying to the
friends of Miss Ray Stowe, who
has been in San Antonio some
time under treatment of an oculist,
to know she it at home again, and
here eyes are very much im
proved. Attention is called to the display
ad of H. M. Field, which appears
in The Herald today. Mr. Field
has a large aud complete stock of
hardware, etc., which he invites
you to call and inspect, promising
reasonable prices and courteous
The tugboat "Germ," owned by
private parties here, which was
formerly used at Brazos Santiago
for towing schooners in and out,
has been sold to A. D. Ryan, of
Galveston, who will take the boat
to that city. It is not learned
what use will be made of the
"Germ" by its new owner.
A letter to Walter Billingsley
from his wife, who was called to
the bedside of her sister, Mrs.
Tern Reed, of Goliad, a few days
go, states that the lady is in a
very critical condition, and grave
fears are entertained for her re
covery. The Herald hopes the
lady's illness is not so extremely
serious as anticipated, and that
she may soon be restored to health.
Last Wednesday night W. D.
Cowley came to town and tied his
horse on Elizabeth street, while
he attended to some business.
Wse his-kce-wfone- H4
waited 4intil about 11 o'clock be
fore the animal was returned. Mr.
Cowley does not so aiuch lnd
having, to stay in town a little
later than usual, but does not like
the idea of his horse being driven
all over creation by a lot of
thoughtless boys, who perhaps
meant no harm, but it was hardly
the proper thing to do. Be care
ful boys, you might drive the
wrong horse some time.
People interested in religious
work in Brownsville, and especial
ly the Baptist denomination, will
be glad to know that at a meeting
of the directors of the Baptist gen
eral convention of Texas, held at
Dallas on August 29, it was de
cided to appropriate the sum of
$2000 for a Baptist church build
ing in Brownsville. This sum
will be augmented by donations
and otherwise, and it will not be
long before the Baptist denomina
tion will have its own place of
Customs Inspector J. L,. Lam
drum was here .today from Santa
Maria. He says weather is dry in
his section, but that is what is
needed while cotton is being gath
ered. Mr. Iandrum says hemadQ
a splendid cotton crop this year.
He has 100 acres in cotton from
which will gather 100 bales or
more. The price is very good, but
Mr. Landrum has not sold yet.
He thinks this is the best cotton
country in the United States, and
a great many people will agree
with him.
One hundred and sixty eight
bales of cotton have been exported
to Mexico by Juan H. Fernandez.
The duty on cotton is about three
quarters of a cent per pound, and
shippers are able to pay this duty
and then make a profit above the
price paid in the United States.
Mr. Fernandez says the price varies
according to the demand, and the
class of cotton shipped. Mexico
consumes a great quantity of cot
ton and large shipments are made
from the different ports of this coun
try. The Herald learns the price
paid in Mexico is 24 cents per
100 pounds.
The Herald is very sorry to
learn that A. D. Childress and
family are soon to leave Browns
ville. Their household goods aTe
being packed preparatory to ship
ment and Mrs. Childress and her
mother expect to leave this week
for Beaumont. Mr. Childress will
probably bid farewell to Browns
ville next week, temporarily at
least. The gentleman is a pro
gressive citizen, one we can ill
afjford to lose, and his decision to
leave this section is a matter of ex
treme regret. Mr. Childress was
ever on the alert for the advance
ment and upbuilding of the Browns
ville country, and has done as much
or more than any one man here,
for the development of a country
in which he had an abiding faith.
As manager of the Brownsville
Land & Town company, he put
forth every effort to prove the re
sourcefulness of the section, and,
did not hesitate to give both time
and money for the furtherance ot
development when occasion de-j
manded. Mr. Childress and family
have been great additions to the
social circles of Brownsville, and
will be greatly missed. The Her
ald while wishing the family the
greatest success wherever they
may cast their lot, also indulges
the hope that their absence is only
temporary, and that they may
some day again become citizens of
our city. v

It has never been our lot to behold such a variety
of dainty designs in
Japanese Paper Napkins
as we are showing now. When you are getting up a
picnic, lawn party, etc., remember we can show you
just the design for each special occasion.
If your china closet at home needs new paper, we can
also show you many new patterns and tints in shelf
paper. They are so inexpensive that you will want
to change them often just to see how the different
tints will look on your shelf.
