TO OUR SUBSCRIBERS.
Since acquiring the Courier-Times
property, and after a careful Investi-
gation among our advertisers, and af-
ter talking with quite a number of
subscribers, we have decided to change
the Semi-Weekly Courier-Times into
a weekly edition, for two or three rea-
sons. So hereafter, there will be no
it the Semi-Weekly edition, but
weekly paper will be Issued on
Instead of Saturday, and will
Mled out In time to reach every
^ber in the county by Friday,
atly people living In the coun-
h to take advantage of Satur-
rgains offered by merchants,
tanot do so, since the paper
2\ng the advertisements of th<>
ri^ does not reach them until
furday.iand hence they are denied
-'|The privilege of purchasing goods at
** reduced prices, which is always the
case when special sales are put on.
Another reason for changing to a
weekly edition Is that we will be bet-
ter enabled to concentrate our ener-
gies on one big paper, containing nil
the news of the week. It can be mail-
ed with more promptness an dthe sub-
scriber will know just when to expect
his paper. There will be no more
disappointments after next week, but
eyw subscriber will receive his papor
regularly and with just as much
promptness as the city subscriber re-
ceives his daily paper. .The country
subscriber pays for his paper, and he
expects It every week, Just the samo
as the city man pays for his paper
and expect It to be delivered promptly.
Many new and attractive features
are in store for subscribers to the
Weekly Courier-Times for next year,
announcement of which will be made
In full within a few weeks.
It shall be our purpose to constant-
ly Improve the paper. We believe the
people of Smith county are entitled to
the best newspaper that It Is possible
to produce, and we are going to gtv¿'
It to them.
Within the next few days we will
be through revising our lists and get-
ting the mstraightened out since the
Are which swept away everything con-
nected with the plant, except the mall
list, which was badly damaged.
We take this opportunity to thank
our subscribers for their friendship
and patronage in the past, and hope
to continue to merit same.
We wish every one of you a merry
Christmas and a happy New Year,
with «any joyous returns.
As mentioned In yesterday's paper,
the chairmen of the ward committees
were guests of C. W. Boon, the gen-
eral chairman of the East Texas fair,
at a luncheon at the Malavunsos Cafe.

Frank Ooldwater, Ward No. 1; Os-
car McFarland, Ward No. 2; H. E.
Byrne, Ward No. 3; J. H. LeGrand,

of the Country Committee; Charles W.
Boon, Chairman of the General Com-
mittee, and Messrs. S. Bruck, L. I,.
Jester, J. H. Herndon and Secretary
The lun.cheon was first-class in every
respect, such as this popular place al-
Mr. Boon stated that the Interest In
the fair, as far as he could elarn, was
growing over the entire county, and
that stock would be subscribed by all
Inlluentlal farmers; that he had no
fear but that a big block of stock
would lie taken by the farmers In gen-
eral; that he had talked to a number
of the prominent farmers of this coun-
ty, and that they had all agreed to
take stock and now it only remained
for our business men to get busy and
keep np the enthusiasm already
For First Ward, Mr. Ooldwater se-
lected as his committeemen to place
tho stock of the East Texas Fair: H.
M. Rosensteln, John A. Lott, J. J. Bar-

General Committee, <3- W. Boon,
It was agreed to have a big muss
meeting on the evening oi January 10
at the Commercial Club rooms, at
which meeting the committee will
make Its report, and a full and free
discussion will be had of the fair
Now that the movement has gotten
such a line start, it will be an easy
matter to push it along. There Is no
question but that the people want the
fair. The right kind of men are at the
head of the enterprise, and its suc-
cess is almost assured before any fur-
ther move is made.
Of course, every progressive citizen
Is expected to be on hand at the meet-
ing on the evening of January 10 to
take part in the meeting.
GOVERNOR CAMPBELL PLAYS
SANTA CLAÜ8 TO CONVICTS
Austin, Tex., Dec. 21.—Governor
Campbell today signed forty-eight
pardons, which may be strictly term-
ed Christmas pardons. During the
month of December he will probably
Issue between seventy and one hun-
dred more certificates freeing those
now confined in the state penitentiary,
but his actual Christmas pardons
number but forty-eight.
Among those who will get these
much-sought Christmas presents from
the governor are found many of the
friendless whose cases have been
worked up entirely by the board of
pardon advisors In conjunction with
the governor. Many of them arc life-
termers who have been convicted on
murder charges and have served fif-
teen or twenty years on their terms.
Others are boys—boys who commit-
ted crimes between the ages of sixteen
and twenty. There are also several
Mxlcans In th list.
