Harper Rye "On Every Tongue." Scientifically distilled; naturally aged; absolutely pure. Best and safest for ul uses. Sofd by T. CRIXELL & BRO. The Survival of the Fittest. The San Angelo News takes is sue with the Bulletin on a state ment which appeared in this paper when the Evening News suspend ed that it proved the futility of attempting to establish"" a paper in a field already thoroughly and satis factorily covered." There may pos sibly be exe ptious to the rule, but tae general rule stands good. If the field is satisfactory and thor oughly covered it is very difficult for a new pape to make aav great inroads upon the one that is well established. In the case pictured by the News where the publisher is content to let well enough alone and take life as he finds it, the pa per coula hardly-be a satisfactory publication .to a piogressive clien-t-ge. There is not a paper in Tex as that is giving even a fairlv satis factoiy service, that is well manag ed in the business and editbria rooms, th it coufu be put out of business with five times the capital that is invested' in the established paper Bu- in onlv tht larger, towns in Texas is tnere room for two or more papers and to succeed taese mu t be divided bsiwre the morning and the even ing field. Towns of ten to fifteen thousand seldom support two pa pers for any great length of time, though whi e places are on a boom two daily papers often survive for a time, even in towns of only a few thousand people. But with the end of the boom almost invariably comes the end of cue and often of both papers in such small towns. It was apparent to any thoughtful and experienced newspaper man that two papers could not well exis in the daily field in Brownwood for any great time without a loss pf much money. Speaking on this sam,e subject the Houston Post says: " "ne Brown wood Evening News, after a career of less than three months, has susot.nded pub lication. Two dailies for a town no larger than Brownwood is a risk any where. The Bulletin is a most excellent'paper. is well established and fully ccvers the field." In its editorial the Bulletin did not tove in mind the situation at San An gelo, nor was it intimating results in that town, where the' conditions may be unusual- This paper cer tainly wishes success i- a most eminent degree to both papers of that enterprising city.
