Jesse O. Wheeler
Editor and Proprietor.
THURSDAY JULY 30. 1903.
Thk phiJoIogicomous editor of
the Corpus Crony remarks:
The Hebraic extraction of the
editor of the Brownsville Herald
is indicated by the Hidalgo Ad-
vance referring "to him as "Shake"
and "Jesse 0. Shake.''
That is a hard one but the Her-
ald clears the Advance of the im-
putation that it was merely calling
names. The Crony is also forgiven
provided that it does not apply to
us the cognomen 0' Wheeler which
some have done.
TEE VALUE OF GOOD LOOKS.
The tide of prospectors is turned
.Browiwvilleward and each day new
faces are seen on our streets. The
people coming here now are of a
very desirable class. They are all
either wealthy themselves or rep-
resent others who are wealth' and
who are seeking good investments.
With cities as with individuals
a good appearance is essential to
success. Brownsville needs to be
cleaned and made as attractive as
possible in order to catch the atten
lion of her present class of visitors.
The city is dirty filthy ugly and
forbidding in appearance but only
from neglect. Naturally it is pleas-
ant to the eye and could be made
-one of the most attractive cities in
the United States from a physical
point of view.
Ami it is worth while it you
think it the better policy to smile
instead of frown when you meet
some one else then most decidedly
it would be better to present the
city in a smiling gladsome aspect
to strangers. It doesn't matter
whose fault it is that this city is
very disagreeably dirty and unat-
tractive. It is simply a fact that
No use to deny it; better ack-
nowledge it and then try to improve
matters. Its filth can't bo hid; it
must be removed. One wrong never
justifies another wrong. It is wrong
cruelly wrong for a city of such
natural attractiveness as Browns-
ville to be shamelessly neglected
and the beauty lost to the stranger
simply by a policy of civic careless-
ness indifference lack of pride.
Who is to blame? As stated it
Matters not. But perhaps the citi-
zens individually and collectively
as well as tliecity authorities should
shoulder the blame. Anyway let's
clean up. Let's put on our best
dress and wear our most pleasant
smiles. There is somebody coming
that we want to capture. Somebody
that we want to take into our lives
and into our hemes and make them
one of us in spirit and in purpose.
But this somebody is rather care-
ful as to his associates. He belongs
to the wue wuie worm ana we
must be as fresh and charming in
physical appearance as nature will
allow us to win his favors and na
ture has been truly lavish in her
blessings on Brownsville and the
El Soltero's "wheels" are get-
ting in a bad way indeed. He'd
better come out of the sand hills
and get a breath of fresh salt-sea air.
He thinks he has discovered a self-
comitment on the part of The Her-
ald as regards the pernicious prac-
tice of "knocking" against the
public interest. Now just the re-
verse is true. The Herald knocked
all right but it knocked the knock-
ers and it will continue to do so
whenever and wherever one puts up
bis head and 'exposes his fiendish
face. "Corispuez the knocker" in-
deed; so say we.
There are great thiugsin store in the
way of railroad development in South
Texas. The building of the two lines of
road t- Brownsville is but the begin-
ning i i (;' -i ra of cnpreccdenteddoYslop-
meut Wiuh and see. Yoakum Times.
H. t o v. u are correct and that
-the era . r.t far oil.
Editor Herald July 24. The
weather is still dry and hot. For
the last week there has been a
persistont flicker of lightning in the
S. W. but nothing has come of it.
Yesterday there were many cloud's
and to-day since 4 o'clock the sky
has become over cast. This may
betoken a change but I am pro-
phesying. I hear it reported that Miss
Catalina Nix of Rio Grande Cit
is fioon to marry Mr. Horacio Guer-
ra son of Mr. Manuel Guerra of
Roma. Miss Mamie Mix daughter
of Mr. John L. Mix of Fort Ring-
gold I hear is to be .married too
but to whom this deponent knoweth
not. Miss Mix taught school at this
rancho for several year.
I am glad to see that the rail-
roads observe the plural! are to
be built. You can now pat yourself
on the back sit in a corner with
your pie and proclaim the good-
ness of your perseverance. Seriously
though you deserve congratulations
on the success of your efforts and
I tender them heartily.
I wouldnt bank much upon the
want of malarial mosquitoes. They
can be easily imported. Down to
the 50 or G0tliB the Sandwich Is
lands had no mosquitoes but then
the little animal that sings and
bitei made its appearance. Neither
do I believe that malaria is solely
given by mosquitoes. How about
England? chills and fevers etc.
prevail there and there are no mos
quitoes in that isle! In my opinion
the chief cause of our immunity to
malaria arises from another cause
the prevalence of sand and sandy
subsoils. Thin causes the land to
drain quickly and thus leaves but
little stagnant water.
I hav just been sorting and
packing my books and periodicals
to fend to town forstorage pending
my flitting' to San Iaidro late in
August. During the confusion I
mislaid that memoradum relative
to the cavjdweller's forage plant
and thus. I shall have to. postpono
my account till another .time.
At last you have dropt your
disguise! At !:i.-t you appear in
your true character. But a few
weeks ago who was sosevereagainst
a "knocker" against one who op-
posed the good of hiii community
as the editor of the Herald! And
now you come out and say that
yon too are' a "knocker"! Alas!
how the mighty are fallen! The
villain stands confessed and
glories in it!
A ban le knockaire! Corspuez le
As you vouch for the"wheel"-less
condition of your "devil" I'll for-
give him. But since Lott's last tele-
gram I'm inclined to bclievp that
the '"wheels" are now higher up!
