Green, Secretary of the Gardeners' Association, Receives Assurances of Special Rates on Railroad for the Convention. In accordance with the plan for holding the proposed convention of the Sduth Texas Gardeners' As sociation at Brownsville, Mr. E. C. Green, in charge of the South Texas Garden, who is secretary of the association, wrote to General Passenger Agent Wm. Doherty of the St. B. and M. railroad ask ing if the company would make a special rate for those wishing to attend the meeting. Tn reply, Mr. Green has received a letter from Mr. Doherty, in which he notifies him that the road will be pleased to comply with the request, mak ing the following rates for the con vention, being good from the poinfa of sale of tickets to Brownsville and return: Harlingen 75 cts., Mercedes $1.00, McAllen $1.25, Sam ForV dyce $1.50, Lyford $1-00, Ray mondville $1.00, Sarita $1.15, Kingsville $2.40, Robstown $2.85, Angelita $3.00, Corpus Christi $3.20. Tickets will be on sale Thurs day, the 15th inst., being limited for re turn, as late as Sunday, the 18th. Mr. Doherty expresses, cordial wishes for a large crowd and a suc cessful meeting. This will be the first meeting of the South Texas Gardeners at Brownsville, and it is hoped that it may be a success in every way'. The Herald doubts not that the citizens will do all in their power to assist Mr. Green in making the visit of the Gardeners both pleas ant and profitable. It would be a good move for our citizens to take some steps toward that end in an ticipation of the convention. Special attention of the signers of the petition asking the city council to hold an election on the issuance of bonds for the proposed water and light systems is called to the last paragraph of the peti tion, which is republished in this evening's Herald. Are you ful filling your solemn pledge as recorded therein? Every body is as busy as a bee here cleaning up the city. A few more days' work like that done during the past week and Browns ville will indeed be a ."Spotless Town." Brownsville is probably the healthiest down in the State of Texas. During the month just past the death rate was only at the rate of 12 per 1000 per annum, and that is not considered a very .healthy nioath, either.
