' When clearing land for planting, bear in mind Mr. Stiles' injunction and leave a few belts of native timber for wind-breaks. It will be disastrous to entirely denude the country of trees. There is no finer bee country in the world than right here on the lower Rio Grande, where there is always some plant, weed, tree or shrub that produces honey-bearing blossoms the year around. Convention Notes. A. P. Wright made a fine- im nression by his ready answers to the deluge of questions fired at him about onion culture. i. McUomos ot Ulmito gave a splendid explanation of the art of packing tomatoes as practised in Florida and also spoke of the great returns obtained marketing crops through organization. W. R. Barber had a large fund of experience to draw upon to give answers to the scores of questions asked him about onion culture His talk was worth money to those interested in that branch of the trucking industry. The, paper read by Charles Volz on theerowing of celery in the Rio Grande valley was listened to with the! deepest interest by the members of the association. The big profits made in the industry as -announced in The Herald had caused considerable comment among thetruckers, but Mr. Volz said he stood ready to prove to any doubting Thomas the accuracy of his statements.

Mr. Kirk of the Hurd Land Co had a sign displayed yesterd Welcoming the South Texas Gar deners. The best kind ot a neighbor is the one that knows just whon to butt in and make himself in valuable. J.

Lingenbrink, one of the leading business mon of Mercedes was an interested listener at the meeting. A Correction. F. Slavitchek, the local agent of the Waters Pierce Oil Co., says the The Herald is in error in al leging that his company refused to supply the city with crude oil. As a matter of fact, the city did apply to him about the purchase of crude oit- for disinfecting purposes, bu he ' told them his company could not supply the city because they were not in the crude oil business; handling only refined oils.

Printing at Herald Deafness Cannot be Cured by local applications, as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure deafness, and that is by constitutional remedies. D earn ess is caused by an inflamed con dition of the mucous lining of the Eus tachian Tube. When this tube is inflatn. ed you have a rumbling sound or imper fect hearing, and when it is entirely clos ed, Deafness is the resnlt, and unless the n.1ammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed condi tion of the mucous surfaces. We will give One Hundred Dollars for any case of Deafness (caused by catarrh) tha cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh Onre. Send for circulars free. F. J. CHENEY & Co., Toledo, O.
