JESSE O, WHEELER. FRIDAY, JANUARY 8, 1909. TffE PLANTER'S TURN. A circular letter has been sent out by Secretary R. Magill of the L. R. G. V. C. Club to all of the most prom inent land owners of the Valley, urg ing them to send at once to every far mer in their community an urgent re quest for them to send to Prof. E. C. Green of the. South Texas Gardens not later than Monday, January 11th. as good a display as possible of farm products, including anything pro duced on a farm for the use of man or beast. No better advertisement could be given to this Valley than a good dis play of the products of the Valley, at this mid-winter exhibition. The club realizes this and is exceedingly anx ious to secure as complete a display of Valley products as possible. Ev ery indication is that there will be a very large attendance at this con vention. These people are coming as delegates of the various associa-, tions interested from all sections and parts of the state, and no greater exposition to prove the fertility of the soil of the Lower Rio Grande Valley could be made than by an exhibit of all of the products raised here to show these visitors what the Valley will produce. Should a prop er exhibit not be prepared, it would be injurious to this country. No doubt every visiting delegate will have heard something of the wonders of this great country and will come with the expectation of seeing the products. Should he fail to see a good exhibition of these products, it will be but natural that he should be disappointed and feel that what he has heard of the Valley was overrat ed, and upon returning home and being questioned by his friends and neighbors as to this country, he would tell them as much. T.'her,efore it cannot be too strongly urged upon the planters of the entire Valley that they exert themselves to send some of the best fruits of their farms and gardens to be displayed at the Valley's Mid-Winter Fair. All must see that it is to the in terest of every individual in this Valley to take a personal interest in this exhibition and do all in his or her power to make it a success, to have such a display of Valley pro ducts that will impress upon the members of these various societies, and through theni upon a large and important part of the entire state, the excellence of the products of this grand and glorious Valley and its wonderful fertility. 300,000 Brick for Sale f Kilns Constantly Turning out FINE BRICK Manuel Baneda, Brownsville, Texas A 5Ari5FIED CUSTOMER WHO BOlftrlT LAND OF W-O.COLE-MAN AT SAM 6tNlTO,TEX aliam Colonization Company, t. ,, .T.

The holidays are over and life has assumed its usual pace. The friends of Mrs. Lewis Straton are very sorry to learn thfe? shJis again on the sick list.5 Sbre was much improved for several weeks. However, all hope tovee her out again soon. After spending her, holiday vaca tion with her parents, Miss Marie Deyo returned to college at Austin Saturday. Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Wright of Warren, 111., spent two weeks with Mr. Wright's parents at this place. They returned this week, after spending a few days at Houston. A. M. Deyo is pushing the work on his elegant new home on San Mathias Ranch and expect to move there in two weeks. Mr. and Mrs. Craig of Three Riv ers, Mich., are here for the winter, with their son, C. E. Craig, and daughter. Miss Goldie. They have rented the cottage owned by Mr. Powell. Mrs. P. S. Ayres and children at Donna, returning Sunday. Dr. Ayres returned with them. Rev. Mr. Petty of Brownsville preached both morning and evening at the school house here Sunday, De cember 27th, and Rev. Mr. James preached in the afternoon of the same date. Sydney and Earnest Kring were here for a few days visit with friends and relatives. They are attending school in San Antonio. Willie Moses gave a party for his young friends at his house Monday night Lee Suffel of Norton, Kan., arrived here Monday with his car of goods and live stock. He will build on his farm near Sebastian. Social affairs during holidays were many and varied. To Begin with the Sunday School and young people of the town gave a tree and program at the school house Xmas eve. The exercises were well carried out, the music good and all enjoyed the treat and went home satisfied with the ef forts made and the time spent in preparation. On Xmas night the young people from here went in a body to visit ithe young people of Raymondville. Saturday night a social evening was passed, at the home of R. H. Deyo in honor of Miss Morey return or her vacation. Tuesday night the Misses wygai gave a "Mute Frolic" party at their Home on "Palm Heights." Wednesday night Miss Stamford entertained, at her home on West Sth street. Thursday night Miss Hazel Mil liard gave a "Watch Party" at her home three miles from town, where they watched the departure of 1908 and the advent of 1909. Friday afternoon, New Year's Day, Miss Goldie Craig gave "a luncheon for a few of her young lady friends thus completing a week of social gayety. The only unpleasant feature was the visitation of some young gentle men, who made it their business to annoy the townspeople and especially the young people gathered at one of the homes, by racing their horses, shouting and firing off revolvers. We are very glad to say, however, the guilty ones were not our own resi dents, but represented a neighboring town, which we feel sure is ashamed to own them. SAN BENITO SOCIAL ITEMS To The Herald: San Benito, Texas, Jan. G. Little new year cards were received here last week from young Alba Hey wood, Jr., at Mineral Wells. This young man is only a few weeks old, yet to the present writing he has treated all of the smoking population of San Benito to good cigars, and in addition has wished everybody the first compliments of the season. If you want to see a real smile of pleas ure, one of happiness personifified, just mention Alba, Jr., to Colonel Heywoood. The first dance of the new year, was given here Saturday night. A fine orchestra was brought down from Mercedes, composed of five pieces, and they played everything from the dreamiest, sweetest Spanish music full of "Amor", down to the gayest Ameriean rag-time ever pub lished. The night was an ideal one . 0. Col SALES AGENT FOR RIVERSIDE OF THE FAMOUS San Benito Farms Brownsville Texas V i ! iT. J JUJ.J.
