Waco, Texas,
June 30, 1919.
Dear Editor:
Well brother, here we are
again. 1 am asking you to mail
me, at your expense, a copy (if
you have one left) of that rium
ber of your paper of about two
months ago, containing the
"bouquet" you handed nv
You see, I inadvertently lost the
copy you sent me. Wouldn't j
have taken worlds for it—as i '
have always wanted to see my-!
self as other* see me. In fact, j
myself and friends have had!
many a hearty laugh over it— 1
hence the request for another!
copy
However, vou do me wrong
about the tortoise shell rimmed
glasses—"silver bowed specs"
are more in my line.
Now brother, leaving aside all
levity why does your county put
up with such a state of affairs?
When I went through Stonewall
two months ago, I was told the
entire bridge had been recently
washed away. I found the fol-
lowing to be the case: First it
happened some two years or
more ago; Secondly only one
span was gone. Thirdly that
there is an element in your coun-
ty opposed to the replacing of
this span. How many people
are interested in the "man at
the ford."
I eame through your town yes
terday, and I saw the bridge
myself. Only one span is gone
and appKrently no attempt is
being made to repair it.
As far as I could see vour
county seems to be up with the
average Northwest Texas coun-
ty. Good looking crops, etc.. so
it can't be you are broke.
Now in justice to your county,
and to the travelling auto pub-
lic 1 'tin askine v on to explain
through your columns why t he j
matter has not been attended to.
1 was warned at Stamford in
person, against the very condi-
tions I found. My dodgers were
to keep others from "getting
stung" likewise.
Your for decent roads.
C. S. Mitchell. Lolita, Texas
l\ S. Don't forget the other
copy. I sho want it.
The above i* a letter from
the fellow that had circulars
printed and scattered them
rather profusily over this and
other ccunties, condeming the
roads in this county and saying
graft was being practiced at
the crossing of the Salt Fork
between here and Jay ton.
Yes Bro. Mitchell we sho' will
send you a paper and we note
that you said at our expense too,
at which we are not surprised.
It is exceedingly hard for one to
answer you in a way you will
understand as you seem to be
so ignorant as to our past efforts
and our surrondingw for the
past several years. You are
very much mistaken when you
say there has been no efforts
made to reoair the bridge and
we are *till putting forth a
very strong effort and intend to
keep at it until it is fixed.
Now a word to the pussy foot
at Stamford that is warning
travellert< not to come through
The White Well
Spudded In Tuesday
The White well, five miles
southwe-t of town, was spudded
in Tuesday, July 1st, and dril-
ling has been progressing nicely
since that date.
We learn that Mr. R. S, Entz-
minger has been employed to
manage the company's business
at this place, which assures us
that that they mean business
and that the work will be push-
ed to the very limit. Mr. Entss-
minger say tney will only work
a day force for a while, until oil
for fuel arrives, after wtych
they will work both day and
night.
Four States Have Bulk
Of Cotton Crop
Washington, June 27.—The
combined production of cotton
of iexas, Georgia, South Caro-
lina and Mississippi, the only
states producing over one mil-
lion bales each in 1918, repre-
sents 03.2 per cent of the crop,
according to the Census Bureau
report issued today.
this county for fear of bad
roads. If he has sense enough
to travel at all and if he will
make the trip from Stamford
to Aspermont we will bet dol
lars to donuts that he will eay
Stonewall has the best road
on the route and we can truth-
fully say that the road leading
from Aspermont to the county
line east is the best • road be-
tween here and Ft Worth. '
Bro. Mitchell you seem to be
tameing down some, may we
not expect you out this summer
to help eat peaches?
