Dear Sir: I am expecting, to lo
cate in your city at some tuture
date, and, as newspapers are an
index to a town, please send me a

Very truly yours,

The above is a fair sample of
numerous communications or a
similar nature being constantly .re
ceived by the publisher of The
Herald. This particular letter is
published to show merchants of
Brownsville that there is more than
one reason why they should adver
tise their business in the local pa
per. The principal reason, to be
sure, snoum oe to increase tneir
trade, but they should also take
sufficient pride in their town to
want their local paper to make the
best possible showing for it, which
can only be done by publishing ad
vertisements of the leading busi
A glance through the advertising
columns of The HeraldwiII give
some idea of the impression which
the writer of the above communi
cation will receive on looking over
the sample copy of the paper which
has been sent him. Most lines of
business in the town are liberally
represented in the -paper, but it
must be (admitted that our dry
goods merchants make a very sor
ry showing, and appear sadly lack
ing in enterprise, judged by the
columns of their local paper, only
two or three investing in space in
the paper to let people know that
they are doing business here, while
of the hotels, not a single one has
a card in The Daily Herald, and.
if it were not for the free advertising
eiven them by the publication of
the hotel arrivals in the paper,
out of town readers might think
that Brownsville had no hotels at
Isn't it about time for those busi
ness houses of Brownsville who
have, heretofore refused to adver
tise to begin to think of how lack
ing in enterprise and illiberal they
appear by refusing to do so?
