The letter of thanks from the

to GenefeJ-A..- B. Nettleton which
as published in The Herald this
evening is but an echo of the sen
timent of all Brownsville. It is
felt by all of our people that this
testimony in behalf of our injured
and misjudged town, coming
from a source at once so high
and so disinterested, cannot fail
to have the effect of convincing

Manuel Reyes, baker of 500 Lin

"I was feeling run down and not
at all as. I should and the kidney
secretions were altogether too fre
quent. My back hurt me at times
with, sharp shooting pains that al
most took my breath away. I came
to the conclusion that my kidneys
were out of order so procured a box
of Doan's Kidney Pills. They did
the work in a short time, clearing
up the kidney secretions and re
moving the pain in my back. , To
anyone suffering as I did my ad
vice is to use Doan's Kidney Pills.'

Gen. A. B. Nettleton Thanked by Citizens
for His Letter to Secretary of War.
The time is near at hand when
everybody will realize that they

this country. Our soil will germi

place tolive and die and be buried.

General A. B. Nettleton,
Dear Sir: At a meeting of the
Business Men's Club expressly
convened for the purpose, it was
decided unanimously that a cordial
vote of thanks be tendered you
for the interest that you have
taken in Brownsville in defending
its fair fame against the aspersions
of the negro miscreant soldiers
who recently shot up our town
and in disapproval of the ill advis
ed action of sympathisers of these
murderers in the north and east
Your able letter to the Secretary
of War is heartily commended,
and your vindication of Browns
ville deserves our heart-felt thanks
It is melancholy to think that
upon vague and doubtful testimo
ny people in the north and west
who claim to represent public
sentiment should, under such con
ditions, either justify the action of
the murderous negroes or sym
pathise with them in any way.
Your comprehensive letter which
brings out the facts clearly and
without bias, will do much toward
dispelling this wrong impression,
and it is dimcuit to teel that any
one, whatever his feelings may
have been heretofore, can come to
any other conclusion after perus
ing your letter, than that President
Roosevelt is right in his decision.
Again thanking you for "your
splendid vindication of the citizens
of Brownsville, we have the honor
Yours very truly,
Brownsville Business Men's Club.

Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
