Because it is a historic piece of
paper walker K. uayior is
very proud of a document which
he has in his possession. Mr.
Baylor resides at Xo. 404 Warren
Street. The piece of paper m
question is an old and faded blue
official document issued during
the hostilities in the course of the
the Civil War. It bears an im-
portant part in the war history of
the City of San Antonio because
it treats particularly of the cir-j
eumstances of the surrender of
this city by the Federal forces to
the soldiers of the Confederacy.

General Orders No. 5.
It is the pleasing duty of the
Colonel commanding to thank the
volunteer troops of Texas for the
valuable service they have again
rendered the Confederate States.
Being called upon at short notice
to take the field they responded
with promptness which proved
how high is the military spirit of
the State and how ready her peo-
ple are to seize up arms in defense
of her honor and vindication of her
rights. It is not-the wish of the
Volunteers of Texas however to
fight against the troops of the
United States who have been
defending our frontier for years
and who found themselves on their
soil in the attitude of enemies only
because of political changes which
they did nothing to bring about-
many of whom have been personal-
ly endeared to them by long as-
sociation and by their gallant deeds
("well remembered) as their old
comrades in the war with Mexico-
With the true spirit ot brave men
who knew how to appropriate a
soldier's honor they marshaled in
such numbers before them that
the rugged necessities of war might
be accomplished without blood
shed and without the loss of repir
tatioirto their gallant opponents.
There was no exultation over
the troops of the Eighth United
This would not be the case were
the Volunteers of Texas called out
under arms to contend with an in-
vading force sent against them from
the North far from it there

fection and no disparity of num-

victory "after fight" would be the

In considering the relative profits

even the farmer may exercise his
preference; otherwise he should
curb his inclinations and bend
himself to meet the better conditions.

factors in farming. It may make

The size of the farm must be
considered; if the holding is large.
there will be ample room for the
sheep; if it is becoming unfertile
the flock will assist in restoring
iertility whereby an unprofitable
field may be converted into one
that will bring a fair return. The
prime cost in keeping sheep is the
fencing but as it lasts for years
the annual expense is not so great.

OLD PROMISE TO PAY.
The following is taken from last
issue of the Hidalgo Advance and
shows that our neighbors up the
river are progressive and wide
awake to their best interests. The
A company was formed here last
week and capitalized at $1000 for
the erection of telephone lines to
all points where such connection
may be needed iu Hidalgo county.
A line has already been construct-
ed from here to McAlien station
and is nowin complete working
order. This will prove of inestim
able benefit to our people especial-
ly the business interests. Since
the military telegraph line was
discontinued Hidalgo has been cut
off from the rest of the world so
far as wire communication is con
cerned. Now we can phone our
messages out to the operator at
McAlien. and he will transmit
them by telegraph. The cost will
practically be the same or less than
it was over the old military tele-
graph wire which charged 15c
for ten - words or less over their
line. The directors of the "'phnei'
line have agreed to charge 15c for
all messages long or short.
Our enterprising fellow citizen
John Gloaner was the original
stockholder and promoter of this
telephone line and intended erect
ing and maintaining it at his own
expense rather than be subjected
to the inconvenience of being
longer cut off from rapid commun
ication. When he started it oth
ers were quick to see the advant
ages to be derived from it and all
the stock was quickly taken.
At a stockhplders meeting held
last Monday the fellowing Board
of Directors were elected for the
John Closner President; J. R.
Alamia Secretary and Treasurer;
Teff.N. Miller. A. E- Chavez and
R. A. Marsh.
