Buchanan & Cloud shipped another t ar of fat cattle to the Ft. Worh" mar ket yesterday. These gentlemen are building up an extensive business through their feeding pens, and are making a market for the farmers hogs and cattle every day In the year. It cannot help but prove to be a good thing for the county at large, by en 1 ouraglng the farmers to grow more live stock. If the farmers know they can dispose of their stuff any day in the year they will not hesitate tt go more extensively in the business. The lack of a market has always been a drawback to this very profitable In dustry. A few hogs or a yearling or two to sell occasionally helps out won derfully. and there are few farmers but wha: can arrange to make this addition to the products of their farm. It Is worth the thought and effort necessarv to do it. Merka-Zemanek. Mr. August Merka and Miss Fannie Zemanck. both residents of Brazos county residing near Bryan, and a very popular young Bohemian couple, were married Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock at St Joseph's Catholic church.

In New Quarters. The First National Bank moved iuto their new temporary building late yes terday afternoon, and are now quarter ed there where they will remain until the handsome uevv brick Is completed. They will open for businesi in the new quarters this morning and ask their friends and patrons to call on them there. Since the morning of the fire they have been loiv'ed in the store of E. J. Fountain and were pleasantly situated except for the inconvenience of their cash and bool.. .a-k and forth from their vault. A Fireman Opinion. T.K re U nobody or organisation ot nieu In Bryan In a iiosltion to better understand and appreciate the water conditions than the firemen. We are an organisation for the protection of property, home and life. Our enemy Is fire, and our weapon of defense Is water I feel with confidence and -some degree ef pride, that Insofar as personal bravery and determination go, there are men id our company capable of standing the severest test, yet the bravest and best have been known to retreat when the water failed to come. The tax payers of the city, many of them, are paying today for a protection they do not get, because the water company does not furnish the water and the old system of water mains I3 ro limited that a fire can not be reached and handled successfully should it occur any great distance from .Vain street. The last fire 1 lug on north Main St. is at the corner of Palernios' store south of Parkers' gin, to the south the last plug Is at the tivih coiner of the old brick w.-rehouse To the west, so far as I re member, there are only three plugs Masonic hall, Mrs. Carr's and Sjam Wilson's residences, all within two iblockg or Main St. The east side Is ' very little bettr protected; the last 'plug to the norheast being at Dr. Cav- Itt's. Hence there Is much property absolutely without protection, yet these people pay the same percentage for fire protection as the merchant on .Main St. pays. I am' advised tbr under the- present contract that tl.i- j City has with .the Water company, it wouit cosi.Deyond reason to extend the large mains to any extent; "So there you are." Bryan has now an insurance rating of 2nd class, with the threat hanging over us of a reduction to 3rd class, which if done, would niean nn Increase in cost of Insurance 20 per cent, which would very soon cost the citizens more than the proposed bond Issue calls for. The only solution, as I see it, is for the City to own and operate its own water system. It would prove econom- lical, efficient and pave the way to greater things. The City Council Is composed of ! some business men who, I think, are eminently capable of taking care of the situation. I vote to give them a chance. , J. J. RAY. THE WEATHER. ..
