TIIU1UDAY, JULY 20, 1883. It IS estimated that the cotton crop in Tex as ihis season will be larger than it was las' year. It is a wise businesi man who plants his advertisements dunnc the dull summer months, for in the fall he will reap a big trade and consequent wealth. According to the tax rolls in the Comp troller's Totfice at Austin, Texas, contains 1,005,850 horses; 205,329 mules; 4,715,960 oxen; 681,510 cows; 5,615,440 sheep, and 2,066,670 hogs. Thomas A. Edison expresses himself, in an interview, as being very much in sympathy with the striking telegraph operators, and gives it as his opinion that they will succeed and accomplish the purposes of the strike. Parson's Texas cavalry brigade will hold its annual reunion at Alvarado, Johnson county, Texas, Wednesday and Thursday, the 1st and 2d of August. All ex-soldiers, who wore either the gray or the blue, their families and friends, all old Texans, and the public generally are cordially invited. The Eagle Pass Maverick says: "There is a town on the International railroad half way between San Antonio and Laredo named Cotulla, which is unknown to the Postoffice department, its postoffice name being Lasalle. Letters sent to Cotulla, Texas, go to the dead letter office in Washington, there being no such office as Cotulla in the State. Parties interested should be careful to address all letters intended for Cotulla to Lasalle post- office or they will not reach their destination Why don't the good people of Cotulla have their postoffice name made to fit Ihetr town, or their town to fit their postoffice name?" The Austin Statesman says : "In t'.e sav ings bank that was founded in the eastern penitentiary of Pennsylvania one year ago, with a view of encouraging industry among the inmates by giving them a per centage of their earnings, and depositing it in the bank, there is about $9000 to their credit already. Since the bank has been started the convicts have earned by over work about $25,000, and have sent over $12,000 to their families. This practice con forms somewhat to the plan lately set forth by a writer in the Century. It is the true theory upon which convicts should be worked, and the Statesman predicts it will after a while be universally adopted." HOW TO ADVKKTIiJK. The Light's senior partner, whom we will familiarly designate as "Giff," after a number of years of close study and application of the subject, has produced a lecture upon Ihe subject o) judicious advertising, and we say it to his credit, he never knowingly lets pass an opportunity of "delivering it, and there are numbers of instances to show that his Iheory of judicious 'advertising in newspapers has proven profitable to Ihe advertiser. All kinds of advertising pays, but, like any other In vestment, it can be do.ie improperly and un satisfactorily. Ilut no business man who used the columns of the newspaper judiciously in making known his busines and his prices has ever failed to get a good return for his outlay. The Galveston Print, which, by the way, is a successful and popular evening paper, thus sums up the advantages possessed by an evening paper as an advertising medium over a morning paper in the following sensible article : "First Because the cheapness of an even ing paper brings it within the reach of the great body of the people "Second Because the laboring man as well as the business man, when he leaves his business and goes to his home, carries with him his evening paper or finds it at his home. When he has nothing else to do but to sit down with his family and read the news of the day, after which, having time, he will quite naturally look through the advertising columns for the place where he can secure good bar gains, and when he finds some attractive ad vertisement where bargains can be had he will call his wife's attention to the same, and in this way the business man, from one issue of the paper, may secure quite a number of cus tomers. But such is not the case with the morning paper, because the laboring man, and even the business man, receive it just before the day's work begins, and he cannot do more than go hastily through the local and fresh news items, when the paper is thrown aside or left on his front steps and he is off to business, and 10 chances to one he does not again see the paper, and as ladies generally have too many cares to read the papers, the family (re quently miss the advertisement in the morning paper. Hence we say, if the business men of the city desire to advertise their business they should select the evening paper." A IIMGI1TK11 INDUSTKY. Among the many attractions possessed by Western Texas is the great productiveness of the grape, our dry and salubrious climate being specially adapted to the growth of all varieties, free from the common blight and mildew, and up to the last year or two much wine was made by growers, anil found a ready sale at good prices. By reason of a law passed by a late Legislature, imposing a special tax upon homemade wine, this indus try has been done away with, and many acres of fine and thrifty vineyards made almost worthless. A few days ago a Light repre sentative approached a gentleman in this city upon the subject of advertising his business and he said since that law had taken effect he had no business, whereas, before its passage, he had built up a profitable trade in home made wines. Leaving out the prohibition feature of the question the grape culture in dustry in the past is one that has been profitable alike to the producer and the manufacturer, and especially Western Texas, and furnished employment to a great many small farmers, and it is an open question if the law as it now stands is not a positive check upon some portions of the State. It is only a short time ago when a syndicate of capitalists from Lis bon visited Texas for the purpose of examin ing into the possibilities of the grape culture, and while they were completely satisfied with the State and its climate in that respect, yet they declined to engage in the enterprise be cause of the excessive special State tax, and returned home without making any invest ments in Texas real estate. It is estimated that this season 5,000,000 gallons of grapes will go to waste in Western Texas, from this cause, as beyond a small local demand, there is no sale for manufact uring purposes, and many growers are con templating the question of plowing up their vineyards aud putting the land to more valua ble uses. Without desiring here to enter into an elaborate discusion of this subject, we submit if it would not be proper to have a showing made looking to a repeal or modifi cation of this law, that would make this indus try a means of material prosperity to the western portion of the State.
