There was a very quiet wedding
at the Rio Grande hotel yesterday
afternoon the contracting parties
being G. F. McLaughlin of Whar-

performed the ceremony. The new-
ly wedded pair left this morning
for their home at Wharton.

Tint Hicham) man has been kept
busy today chasing down rumors
of a foot and wagon bridge over
the Rio Grande at Brownsville.
There are at least a dozen different
stories in circulation regarding the
matter but none of them can be
confirmed at present. No one can
fail to appreciate the advantages to
be derived from the placing of such
a bridge but diligent inquiry fails
to elicit any definite information.
Thk HKKAX.D will continue the
chase and will give its readers the
news as soon as it is news.
It is estimated that in the neigh-
borhood of scenty-five bales of
cotton have been marketed in
Brownsville this season so far. The
crop is yielding splendidly and the
price paid is 2k per pound in the
seed. One man who has four or five
accs in cotton has already market-
ed four thousand pounds and says
he has at least eight thousand
pounds more. A few boll weevil
are reported in some localities but
these troublesome insects do not
appear to have done much damage
so far. Several cotton raisers around
Brownsville claim from a bale to a
bale and a half per acre. A coun-
try where a bale of cotton can be
raised ou an acre of ground ought
to satisfy even the most exacting.
