A Slogan For Texans
The most popular slogan with us today is, “Buy-it-in-
Texas,” and it is not passing strange that this should be
the case, for the idea is being fostered by all of those who
have the best interests of our dear old state at heart. Aside from the general clamor of
the business interests, this recommendation comes from the Legislature and the Execu-
tive branches 9f our Government as well, from men who have ever,given the weighti-
est of problem^ their undivided attention and study,, the result being that they are not
only preaching but practicing* the doctrine of making purchases in our own state. What
this means to us, any ordinary lay-man can readily conceive, millions of untold wealth
kept ill our state; new manufacturing enterprises, and ultimately employment for all
classes of skilled and unskilled labor, and an era af unprecedented prosperity.
Several cuttings may be made

While on the subject, why would it not be advisable to go a step further and say not
only “Buy•in-Texas,” but buy goods and products manufactured in Texas. As regards
the latter, we claim to be among the pioneers, having paved the way in our line, and
we feel constrained to say in all modesty that we have attained such a measure of suc-
cess* irl the manufacture of beer, especially bottle beer, producing the famous brands,
“Pearl” in brown bottles only, “Texas Pride” in white bottles, that we adopted a slo-
gan of our own, viz, “Who can beat it? We deem this quite pertinent, for the verdict
of the public, judging by our very large and continually increasing trade,, has been:
“No one has, because no one can!
Considering what we have done in the manufacturing line, our efforts to upbuild
our city and State, and realizing that there are a great many *people who appreciate a
really meritorious article, may.we ask in all kindness that you give our famous brands
atrial? We will appreciate the consideration.
Very truly youte, -
