In ipite of the above and simi
tar nuertisements now appearing
in the columns of several state, con
temporaries, The Herald can dis
cover no trace of a convention in
-Brownsville except in the brand of
weather that has been handed out
to", us which is strictly in accord
with tradition. Although, it is evi
dent taat some one has blundered
with regard to the convention, still
we. would say to would-be-delgates
and ether intending visitors that
Brownsville is just as attractive now
without a convention as any other
city ::. Texas is with one and it will
jjay t'r-i.: to take a trip down here

rvmov . his aeroplane to Lomo Alto
about i.ecn miie distant from the
city the first ol next week and make
his next attempt at flight there.
At Lomo Alto is located a hill
