This mill is connected with removable arms for carrying the
shafts. The hub has round arms which does away with bolts
and nuts and adds strength and simplicity. It has automatic
oilers and an oil chamber in the hub.
We carry a complete line of repairs and this fact alone makes
the Aermotor worth more to you than any other windmill sold.

WOULD BETTER CONDITIONS
So Thinks a Prominent Citizen of
Brownsville Night Service on
the St. L B. & M. Would Be
of Great Benefit to Entire Gulf
Coast Country More Business
and Traffic Would be the Result
"Convenient and efficient train
service" said a prominent citizen
"is what causes cities to become
great and they grow greater as the
number of conveniences of trains
increase. Where they are supple-
mented by deep water facilities for
augmenting transportation with
these combined there is no reason
why a city should not grow.
Brownsville already possesses the
geographical position being located
at the mouth of a large river empty-
ing into the Gulf of Mexico. She
also has three trains a day leaving
here in the morning besides the
one on the trunk line. One goes to
Point Isabel another to Sam For-
dyce and the third to Monterey.
"The train from the north ar-
rives here at 9:30 p. m. The others
leave in the morning from 7 to 9
o'clock. This makes a bad connec-
tion and a long lay-over. There
should be trains leaving Sau An-
tonio and Houston with Pullman
sleepers arriving here in the morn-
ing to closely connect with the
morning trains out of Brownsville.
This would greatly facilitate travel
and accommodate a great many
more people than now come here.
Those who wish to go to Point
Isabel to fish or hunt those who
go to Monterey to buy a mine or
cattle ranch and those who go up
the Brownsville branch to buy an
alfalfa farm would all be accom
"As the train schedules now
exist persons from either San An-
tonio Houston or other northern
points desiring to visit this city or
vicinity or who write letters to
transact any business either arrive
at night or their letters do after
business is closed. The train on
the trunk line leaves in the morn-
ing before they have any oppor-
tunity of transacting any business
or before the mail is opened.
Either they have to lay over 24
hours or their letters have remained
unanswered and the answers delay-
ed that long.
"If the trains of the trunk line
came in the morning and .left here
at night those who had business
in Brownsville could transact it
during the day and leave at night
while those who send letters here
could have their letters answered
the same day and the answers re
turned by the evening train. Those
coming here and going hence over
tffe trunk lines could enjoy a
night's comfortable rest both com-
ing and goin without losing a day
unnecessarily in travel. They could
transact their business during the
day time and have Sufficient leisure
thereafter to visit the interesting

Eleuterio Lopez Was Drowned
Mexican Narrowly Ejcaped Annihilation.
High Winds Nearly Capsizing Boat.
Life Saving Corps Did Ex-
The news was received here yes-
terday of the drowning of a Mex-
ican by the name of Eleuterio 16-
pez last Friday evening in Laguna
Madre. It seems as though five
Mexicans were in a little row boat
which was only made for two peo-
ple and were attempting to cross
over from the Brazos Santiago Pass
to the main laud wheu they en-
countered heavy seas which were
being agitated by the fierce north
wind blowing at that time and
as the boat they were in was small
they were unable to reach the main
land without considerable trouble
in encountering the high wawes.
The Mexicaus became frightened
and tried to get out of the ill fated
boat and in doing so one of them
was caught in a wave and carried
out to sea beyond the help of his
fellow travelers and in the mean
time the others were desperately
striving to gain the shore when the
life saving crew stationed at Point
Isabel reached them and carried
them to place of safety.
The life saving corps returned to
the place of the accident to find
the body of Eleuterio L6pez and
found his remains several hours af-
terwards some distance from where
the unfortunate man was drowned.
" He was a man of forty or forty
five years of age. He leaves a
wife and several children to mourn
his death. Lopez was well known
here among the Mexicans as he
always took an active part iu
all political campaigns especially
upholding the Republican side of
an argumant. His remains were
buried near Point Isabel the next
