JULY 3. 1907 GROWING SUGAR CANE. In the geographies used in the school of the United States the young students are given to un derstand that the State of Louisiana is one of the very sweetest lands on earth, that in the bottom lands of the Mississippi sugar cane grows almost as well as in the -West Indian Islands and some times passing mention is made of certain limited areas in the state of Texas where sugar is made but as yet it would.be hard to find a text book that contains any information about the real position held by 'Texas as a sugar producing coun try. For 30 years in the Rio Grande Valley enormous yields of sugar have been produced of a quality never dreamed of by the planters of Louisiana. And while the cane has been phenominally irlch in suger, it is the enormous yield and the proper maturing of the stalk that has astonished men from Louisiana. It is hard for them to believe the truth of the wonderful stories they hear of the JLower Rio Grande Valley, they aave to be shown. The other day John Closner received a letter from a Louisiana planter, asking if it was a fact that we had cane with joints formed already. Mr. Clos ner for answer sends a few stalks 12 .to 14 feet high and with from 10 to 12 joints already formed "These samples will convince those -fortunate enough to see them that he Lower Rio Grande Valley is really growing sugar caue. Just s Brownsville shipped grapes of superior, quality to California six weeks ahead of any that country -can produce in order to convince the people of the Golden Gate that a new star had arisen in the horti cultural heaven. So the samples of cane sent to Louisiana by Mr. Closner will convince the planters there that there is another land coming to the front and that it can justly claim to be the sweetest spot in the United States. TAXES NOT INCREASED. It is just possible that there may "be a few of the taxpayers in Brownsville who have not been .fully informed of the financial part the taxpayers will play in the cons t-!irtinn of the waterworks and -electric lighting plant. If the tax nwwrs vote to issue the bonds tr J for the construction of these public -works, there will be no incease in the taxes. At the present time the taxes are 65 cents on the hundred dollars valuation, this is all the law allows the city to collect, and even if it were possible to collect -more it would not be necessary for the construction of these very necessary public utilities. Twenty five cents of the 65 cents collected goes into the fund for permanent improvements and it is from this fund that the interest on the bonds will be paid. There will be no cal . -made for any increase on account of the water used for fire purposes or for street lights, as would be the case if a private corporation were given the franchise to build these works. Then the payment for. water or lights could not be said to come under the head of Xermanent improvements, but the imer Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer is the ideal summer drink. Cooling, satisfying and refreshing, it adds to the enjoyment of the outdoor luncheon for it is a food as well as a drink. Pabst brews for food qualities as well as for purity and flavor. Pabst found the only way to get all of the food-values out of the barley-grain was to follow Nature in making the malt, by growing it slowly and scientifically and he mere fore perfected the Pabst Eight-Day Malting Process. Pabst Malt is richer in nutriment than other malts. Xke Beer of Quality is a more healthful, wholesome food than other beers. The Pabst Perfect Brewing Process blends the rich food values of Pabst Malt with the tonic properties of the choicest hops under con ditions that insure positive purity, while reducing the percentage of alcohol to the minimum less than 3J. Pabst Blue Ribbon is the ideal family beer, because of its food values, its purity and its remarkably small amount of alcohol, making it a truly temperance drink. When ordering beer, ask for Pabst Blue Ribbon. Made by Pabst at Milwaukee And Bottled only at the Brewery. T. Crixell & Bro. Elizabeth St, Brownville. Phone 25. payment of the bonds for these permanent works does come under that head, so that it will be readily seen that under the proposed plan of the city council for erecting waterworks and electric lighting plant, we shall obtain water ana ights and the money that would go to enrrich a private cor poration in payment for that ser vice will go towards the payment of the bo nds. There will be no increase in taxation and the indiv idual households will not have to take water from the city unless they want it, so that on the score of expense the most conservative man in the city connot vote against the bond issue. Indeed it is the very persons who have hitherto been indifferent about the improv ements who will benefit most by the increase in the value of proper ty. The man who is now worth $100,000 will wake up in a couple of years and find that his property has doubled in value and that this increase of wealth has been attain ed 'without the expenditure of a single penny, au increase the di rect result of his wisdom in voting for the issue of bonds to construct municipal electric lighting plant and water works.
