S. A. Robinson who has rented a
residence from W. A. Neale and
will move his family here in a short
time. He will immediately'- begin
improving his recently purchased
land S miles up the river and will
erect a residence in the near future.
Mr. Robertson will plant alfalfa
principally. He is a prominent
railroad man and "was one of the
contractors on the Gulf Coast Line.
Mr. Robertson says railroad build-
ing in Texas is suspended tempo-
rarily at least by the passage of
the Intangible Assets bills by the
present legislature. He believes
the bill is unconstitutional and if
not vetoed by Gov. Lanham thinks
it will be knocked out by the
supreme court. Mr. Robertson has
a contract for building a road in
east Texas but the promoters have
decided to hold the matter up un-
til the bill which it is claimed will
stop all railroad building in Texas
has been definitely disposed of.
Any bill that is calculated to re-
tard the development of Texas
and railroads are its greatest devel-
opers should be relegated to eter-
nal oblivion and .theman who
originates such a bill should be
sent back to the shades of private
life where he belongs.
The Knight's of Honor had a
most pleasant meeting last night.
After the routine business had been
disposed of a smoker was very
much enjoyed by the members
present. A nice spread consisting
of oysters ham sandwiches cheese
pickles and a good supply of liquid
refreshments made up the bill of
fare and the good humor prevail-
ing was augmented by various
and appropriate toasts. Fred
Starck was toastmaster and -.performed
his duties well. These ac-
casional spreads serve to more
firmly cement the bonds of frater-
nal good will among the members
and add interest to the meetings.
Quite a good membership attended
last nicrht and each went away
feeling that the ties of brotherly
love had been more firmly woven.
The Home Mission society of the
M. E- Church South had a most
pleasant meeting with Mrs. J. W.
Davis Tuesday afternoon. At this
meeting the ladies made arrange
ments for the ice cream festival
which will be held at the administra
tion building at Fort Brown next
Friday night. Tables will be plac
ed on the lawn and excellent
cream and cake will be served
Everybody is urged to come and
help the ladies out ill a good cause
which is for raising funds to assist
in building a Methodist church in
Brownsville. Dainty refreshments
were served at the meeting with
Mrs. Davis and the occasion was
especially pleasant. Next meeting
will be held with Mrs. Killough.-
Rev. C. S. Mills of the Meth
odist church will leave Corpus
Christi on April 18 for Louisville
Ky. to meet the Church Exten-
sion board and urge his claims for
funds to build churches at Kings-
ville and Brownsville. He will ask
for $4500 of which $2500 will be
expended on the Brownsville edifice
and $2000 on the Kiiigsville church.
Corpus Cor. Express.
Parties arriving on the train yes-
terdsy report considerably hail at
Kingsville. The Herald hopes
truck and other crops were not in
jured by 'the hail. Considerable rain
is reported along the Gulf Coast
T.inp this side of Kinseville. The
parties say some eff the hail was
larger than a hen egg.

provements made together with
the cool and inviting appearance of
Caison park the visitors first im-
pression of Brownsville is usually
very favorable. Other improve-
ments will likely be made among

dotted with wild flowers presents a
very cool and inviting appearanqe.

A CARLOAD OF ONIONS.
Suggested That Onion Growers Cull
Patches For Purpose of Making
It has been suggested that all
onion growers pool issues and
make a carload each one furnish-
ing as many crates ; as are found
ready for shipment. To further
this measure Col- U. Lott agrees
to give $10 as a premium on the
first car load; McDavitt Bros will
give $10 and other public spirited
citizens will doubtless donate
something and in this way a very
nice premium can be raised which
could be used in paying freight.
Will you ail work together and. do
this. Had this been thought of
two weeks ago Brownsville would
no doubt have shipped the first
carload of onions from Texas this
