E. C. 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.
