WHEELER WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 4. 190S COMING TO TEXAS. Tho Stockman and Farmer says that, as a direct result of the serious night riding in Kentucky, many to bacco growers from tho Blue Grass State will migrate to Texas, some set tling in the territory tributary to San Antonio. The Government is doing much to encourage tobacco growing in Texas, going so far in many in stances as to all the cost of pro duction in order that demonstration farms may prove to farmers the ef ficiency of the soli for growing the weed. Several colonies of Kentucky tobacco growers may be settled un der the guidance of the Yoakum lines in the Gulf Coast country. Alvln Sun.

V . . .. . . It was a northern republican who lately settled in the Browihwille country who bought a pair of mules in Mexico a short time ago. paying about $20 each for the mules as the purchase price, and on reaching the Rio Grsr.de had to pay ?30 per held as duty on them. The experience made a democrat out of him, but be ing a resident of Texas, and unable to vote anyway, on account of having lived here too short a time, it natural ly made no difference in the result of the election. Corpus Christi is preparing to en tertain a large number of visitors on the occasion of the state waterways convention to be held there on the 18th and 19th of this month. That the good people of the beautiful Biunuity win ne equal 10 tneoccasinn there is no doubt For some perhaps the Thanks giving turkey will be flavored with the bitter herbs of disappointment, but all should take their portion with a sauce of cheerful resolve to accept their fate without unavailing murmurs. The republican rooster gets the -crowing in the national election, but down in Texas, and especially on the Lower Rio Grande, the democratic roosters are crowing in a hearty chorus. Rockefeller's "trick" was evident ly one that counted. LA DONNA LAND Hallam Colonization Company, MEXICAN RAILROAD OFFICIALS HERE GENERAL JIAXAGEK OF TEHUAN.

There is only one way to cure deaf ness, and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of Uie mucous lin ing of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube is inflamed you have a rum bling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed. Deafness is the) result, and unless the Inflamma tion can be taken to its normal con dition, hearing will be destroyed for ever; nine cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed condition of the mucous sur faces. We will give One Hundred dollars for any case of Deafness (caused by catarrh) that cannot be cuerd by Hall's Catarrh Cure. Send for circu lars free. F. J.
