Dallas, Texas, June 30, 1893.
Parlin & Orendorff Co., Dallas, Tex-
as, Gentlemen:—In answer to your
inquiry as to how I like the Tricycle
Plow I bought of you, will say that I
am pleased with It. I had used a
great many sulkies of different makes
and discarded tbem on account of
heavy draft and imperfect work. 1
must say that the tricycle runs much
lighter than 1 expected, and it is the
only sulky that 1 bave ever used that
did not hurt my horses necks. It has
no weight on their necks at all, and
the plow will stay where you put it,
no matter how hard the land is. Last
summer I plowed right along when
the ground was so hard that my
neighbors could not plow with their
sulkies, as they could not keep them
in the ground. I cannot say too much
for the tricycle and I would advite all
formers wanting a plow to do the
work and of light draft to buy the
tricycle and be happy.
Did you ever go within a mile
of a soap factory? If so you know
what material they make soap of.
Dobbins' Electric Soap factory is
as free from odor as a chair facto-
ry. Try it onoe. Ask your gro-
and glrla to
work for na
right in their
ties. The buiineta will more than pay three
time8 ordinary wages. Some make two hun-
dred dollars a month. All who engage sue-
oeedfrom the start. Yon may devote your
whole time to the work or only your spare mo-
ments. Pull informstlon and ail that is needed
sent free. GEO. 8TINSON & CO., Box 1550,

MISSOURI, KANSAS & TEXAS
IS POSITIVELY THE 0HLT LI1B THAT RUNS
Sleeping Gars, Texas to Chicago
IAKY TEXAN8 ARK NOT AWARE OF TOE FACT THAT
Was the first railroad to cross the border of
Texas (from any direction) and push Into the
Interior and on to deep water on the Mexican
Gulf; but such was the case and It Is a fact
that the K AT Y Is the ilrst to get out of the old
ruts and Improve its facilities for handling
passengers and frolght. As the early set-
tlers moved from old log cabins to the more
comfortable modernized houses, so has the
KATY advanced and moved her passengers
from Pullman into
Wagner Palace Sleeping Gars.
Th« finest Sleeping Csr Service In the world.
Another advance li the Introduction of the
AMERICAN EXPRESS COMPANY
to do the express business of this Company.
The above Express Company covers lines
from the Atlantic to the Gulf, and none
stands higher than the AMERICAN.
THE KATY REACHES
from Hannibal, north of St. Louis and Kansas
City, to Houston, Texas, the head of tiO
water, over Its own rails, and passes through
Denison, Sherman, Dallas, Fort Worth,
Waxahachie, Elllsboro, Waco,
Temple, Belton, Taylor, Gains-
ville, Henrietta, Austin,
San Antonio, Houston
and affords comforts and conveniences to
its patrons unequalled by any other South -
Any person wishing to visit
ST. LOUIS, CHICAGO, KANSAS CITY, HANNIBAL
or the productive plains and prairies of
MISSOURI, KANSAS AND THE INDIAN TERRITORY,
should by all means take the
Missouri, Kansas & Texas R'y
as it is the most direct, best equipped and
nins THROUGH WAGNER SLEEPERS to all abovj
points WITHOUT CHANGE where direct con-
nection Is made In Union Depot? for alV
