Williaa^ Allen White on Newspapers
At a luncheon given by the Press
Club of Chicago recently, William
Allen White said:
"There are three things which no
man can do to the satisfaction of
other men—make love, poke the fire
and run a paper. No matter if a
man has no more sense than an
oyster and does not *know how many
toes he has, he always knows how to
run the paper better than the editor.
And what is more, he tells all about
it in the street car. But, despite all
this valuable advice that is wasted,
the editors still go on making blun-
ders and money. The old fashioned
editor who had to be all things to all
men is passing away. The time has
come when a man who runs a paper
is his own master."
Dubuque, Iowa, April 19, 1908.
Editor Hereford Brand:
Enclosed you will please find re-
newal for another year. I have
been reading it for the past year and
I must certainly say that the
"Brand" is up and doing all the
time. You are surely using your
paper in every respect for the in-
terest of your little town, and if all
the papers of the Panhandle were as
solicitious for the welfare of the
Panhandle country, as the Hereford
Brand, the country would have a few
more good boasting papers.
Hoping that you will get the new
road «'cinched'' and that operations
will soon be started, I am,
M. M. McCarten.

Letter of Thanks.
Editor of Brand -.—Please send my
paper to Manitou, Kentucky, and
oblige. Tell my friends and neigh-
bors that words cannot express the
gratitude and thankfulness we feel
towards them that was so kind to us
in our hour of trouble and death of
our dear and beloved son. May the
Supreme Ruler watch over and guide
each and every one and when we
come to die may we all meet in a
better land where parting will be no

From J. Ray.
A letter from our friend and form-
er townsman, J. Ray, who the Here-
ford people have loaned to Vernon
at a high rate of interest, writes to
to his friend, G. A. F. Parker and
says that he will do his part towards
the new railroad, which means, of
course, something handsome as Mr.
Ray is not '.'short" in any sense.
Alright, the committee will be glad
to add his name to the list of public

the long term. The board as chos-
en Saturday will have the following
names added : —
L. Gough, Geo. W. Irwin, Jr., P.
W. Parmer and E. T. Woodburn, all
of whom are well qualified for the
places. The new board will be or-
ganized at once and proceed with the
work of the school. About the first
thing to come before the body will
be the election of teachers for the
next school year, the time however

The record of the Model M Winton used by ourselves in the Here-
ford Country during the past year is a striking example of Winton
Reliability, This car has never failed to make the "round trip/' To
break down on the Plains means delay, inconvenience and expense,
The total cost of new parts and repairs on our Model M for one year
is $22,50—$ \ 3.50 for repair and replacement of left front spring and
$9.00 on balance of car. The car today is in the pink of condition,
and the most reliable car in the whole Texas Panhandle.
When you buy a Winton you buy reliability and that means
economy. Then we have a Winton expert right on the ground to kee
your car running; that's economy too, We sell for cash or trade for lan
