Fourth of July Celebration.
No man in Sun Angolo who
truly realizes the situation will
deny that the proposed Fourth of
July colobration and barbecue is a
step in tho proper direction. San
Angelo needs just such a day as
this. In fact sho uoeds more than
one of thorn. Hut a big colobra-
tion and barbeouo this yoar will
open tho way for more colobra-
tious of tho samo sort.
Only good can como of it. Wo
havo sent out invitations to half
the world to como hero on that
day. Wo confidently expect 5000
visitors. If overy man in public
business becomes bettor acquaint-
ed with one-half of those who
como tho city lias been benefited
far beyond any measure in dol-
lars und cents.
San Angolo is no longer a town.
Metropolitan ideas and methods
of business and ways of life have
takon firm hold on her. And it
behooves her to use ovory fair
method of increasing the friendly
bonds between tho people of West
Texas and herself .
Let ovory man then use Ii is
utmost endeavors to make of this
colobration u grand ono one that
will promoto friendly feeling and
bring people hero to see what the
lnoon City of the Concho's is und
lms to offer in the way of advan-
tages over other cities of its size.
Whoop up the celebration.

That New Opera House.
Now that San Angolo is in tho
building humor why does not
some ono nulla n pretty opera
houso? No hotter investment
could bo had. There is no
city in tho country the size of
San Angolo where amusements
aro more nonular than hero.
There is no city where bettor pat-
ronage is accorded plays and on-
tortaininonts. A larger opera
house would mean better com-
panies to come hero a bettor
class of performances and much
better patronage. Sun Angelo is not
bo far out of tlio way but that the
very best rcpotoire companios
and many of those which play to
one and two night stands would
come if a better und larger stage
was a Horded thorn und a bettor
arranged house for the audience.
San Angolo has left her in-
fancy and is coming to that stage
of life w hero reason rules. That
flho ought to have a better opera
house is very reasonable. Tlmt
sho would patronize one is not
only reasonable but highly prob-
uble. In fact it is almost u cer-
tainty. Sonio San Angelo citizen with
the necessary capital can make
good interest on tho investment
and at the same time win laurels

What is needed to settle the
trouble at Cripplo Creek und

Uncle Sam's regulars. Those are

habit of shooting and shooting

gone from bad to worse. They

No man can sanction tho out-
rages in tho Cripplo Creek dis-
trict. The interests of every-
body demand that tho disorder
and lawlessness there shall be
stamped out. Lot tho measure
of force to that end bo just as
heavy and abrupt as tho occasion
demands. This is no time for
palliation or weak-kneed meas-
ures. Even newspaper mon cannot
escape a boiibo of ainusemont as
they read tho daily dispatches
from the Beat of war in tho oast.
Tho greatest nowspapors of tho
world aro represented thoro. They
are spending fortunes to get at
the facts. They havo engaged
the ablest and most resourceful
correspondents tlmt modern
journalism has discovered or de-
veloped. Not a dovico is neglect-
ed not a dollar is grudged that
will bring quick nccuruto com-
prehensive accounts of events in
the Russo-Japanese war to the
outside world. Tho net result of
it all is failure. Thoro is not a
newspaper anywhere in the world
that has been able from tho Do-
ginning to Becuro any war nows
until many days after tho event
and until all had become bo stale
tlmt neither power objected to its
transmission. It lias boon known
for days that something wns hap-
pening at P( rt Arthur. Nothing
olso Iiub been known. Although
tliis is a seaport and therefore
more uccessiblo to tho corre-
spondent than any point within
militrry lines no news came out.
Honco these infinitoly various
surmiBos all of which aro mere
guesswork. However irritating it
may bo from a journalistic point
of view wo must congratulate
Japan on hor effectual suppres-
sion of that publicity which in as

A UNIQUE RECORD
Not Another Like It In Our Brond
To give positive home testimony
in every locality is of itself un-
answerable proof of merit; but
when we add to this the continued
endorsement of people who testi-
fied years ngo no evidence can bo
stronger. A Texas citizen grate-
fully acknowledges the good re-
ceived from Doan's Kidney Pills
and when time has tested the euro
wo find the sumo hearty endorse-
mout with added enthusiasm and
continued praise. Cases of this
kind are plentiful in the work of
Doan's Kidney Pills in Texas
and such a record is unique in tho
annals of medicine.

During his traveling about and

severe heat gave him a severe
diarrhoea which it seemed almost
impossibloto check and along in

tho dose was repeated. The good
effect of tho medicine wa3 soon
