Just Because. your cough is only in the throat and does not trouble you now, don't think t that it needs no attention. When it has not had much of a start is the time Q to check it.

The Houston Post was twenty-one years old on April 5, 1906. That splendid paper observed the anniver sary by putting on what printers call "a new dress." The post has always excelled from a typographical stand point and this time scores a new tri umph. The width of The Post's col umns has been increased, with larger type to set off the reading matter, giving a metropolitan appearance to the paper that would do credit to the biggest jurnals of the country. The tendency of all theleading news papers now is to adopt the larger faced type and construct their columns so as to put the reading matter as clearly before the eye as possible, Sshowing the most at a glance, and thus minimize the tax upon thereader. The improvement in The Post's ap pearance demonstrates the wisdom of this tendency and its friends every where will observe the change, with Ssatisfaction. The news service of the SPost not only covers Houston and Texas like the proverbial "wet blan ket," but stretches over the entire globe, goiving Texas a newspaper that has every facility of modern journal* Sism that the big dailies of the big 4cities possess. SMay The Post grow on in its great Sness.
