Trading here will be safe, pleasant and profitable. Already the store is full of new and beautiful Fall Goods. Each day
will see fresh stock added. We aim to make this store perfect in system and management. The stock will probably reach the goal
first. The other things will be brought to perfection as fast as possible. You will soon learn that it won't pay you to neglect
readings single one of our advertisements, and that to neglect to visit our store when out shopping is a slighting of bargain chances.
Tjhe fluty of this 3*irm as a iiCffew Sto re,
The whole duty of this new firm is a thing not to be lightly summarized; but the duty of the merchandise end of it consists
of these three things: 1st, to get all the new and good things here and show them beautifully. 2nd, to exert all the resources of
the store to sell them cheaply. 3rd, to tell the truth about them—and this last is very essential. You will find no hysterical
statements in our advertisements, no matter how unusual an offering we have to make. Nothing but very simple and plain state-
ments of very plain and simple truths. Every word ig written in good faith, with an earnest desire to command respect. We will
be content if you read as earnestly as we write.

Try Tuxpan Corn.
Ebeling & Son,
SCHULENBURG, - TEX.
I like the sounds of the city;
I like the haunts of men;
And it's pleasant for me to mingle,
Among thein now and then;
But it any one should ask me
Where I'd want my home to be,
I'd say: "The dearest spot on earth
Is the dear old farm for me."
I love the quaint old farmhouse,
Built fifty years or more—
I love the breeze that always plays
About its open door—
The grand old forest trees, that shade
This house where I was born;
And stretching out before me
The fields of waving corn.
j I love to see things growing—
To watch the tiny shoots,
And buds and leaves reach toward the
! Leaving the thirsty roots
i To drink at Mother Earth's warm breast
The nourishment they need
| To make the perfect stalk and flower,
i And then the fruit and seed.
i I've heard your far-famed Patti,
j Heard Paderewski play;
But I'd rather hear the red birds'
Or mocking birds' sweet lay.'
And the lowing of the cows to me
Is sweeter music far
Than all the trills and fol-de-rals
Of your operatic star.
Then the music of the barnyard !
Ah, me! I love it all—
The cackle of the busy hens,
The turkey's curious call.
The peep, peep, peep of little chicks
Have such a home-like sound!
And then I think how good they'll taste
When Thanksgiving Day comes roundl
And Christmas! Did you ever dine
On the farm on Christmas day?
If not, you've missed a joy in life,
That's all I've got to say!
And if you'd really like to see
Some real old country cheer.
Just bring the folks and dine with me
On Christmas day next year.
—Mrs. E. G. Walsh.

The Mexican June corn has
given satisfaction to our farmers in
most cases and will be largely
planted here in the future. The
Tuxpan corn is another Mexican
variety that should be tried. Mr.
Maurice Croudt has given it a test
at his place at Long Mott and is
well pleased with the results. The
stalk attains enormous size and is
unusually sturdy and the ears are
much larger than with the June
corn. In the opinion of many the j ^ron Tonic on the market. It is
A Cotton Mill.
It is stated by a practical man
who claims to know whereof he
speaks that a cotton mill capable
of consuming 1000 bales of cotton
a year can be put up for $50,000.
Estimating the value of a bale of
cotton at $30 it will only require
the subscription of about 1700
bales to start a factory of this kind
in Richmond. Then again, esti-
mating the annual net profit of a
mill at $10 a bale when made into
goods (and it is an extremely low
estimate) this would yield a ten
pgr cent, dividend, not mentioning
the prosperity that the retention
of the gross earning Would bring to
the county at large. While it
might be a difficult matter at pres-
ent to raise $50,000 iu cash at the
present time the Coaster confident-
ly believes that the farmers of the
county would readily subscribe
enough cotton at the market price
to take up the entire stock and
thus earn a profit on such little
money as they might be able to
save. Some could only subscribe
one bale, some two and a number
could afford to make their subscrip-
tions larger. Anyhow the requi-
site number of bales, we believe,
could be easily raised, and if some
responsible man would take the
matter in charge we believe the
question of this county's prosperi-
ty, at least, could be partially

A Killing Over a Wedding.
Longview, Tex., Sept. 12.—Pa-
nola county and especially Beck-
ville is stirred as never before on
account of a terrible triple tragedy.
The trouble was caused by James
Forsythe, a highly respected young
man, marrying Miss Ollie Simpson,
a belle of the neighborhood. It
seems that on account of the unap-
proacbableness of the girl's father,
Andrew Simpson, the young man
did not ask him for the hand of
his daughter, and, aided by sev-
eral young men in the neighbor
hood, he succeeded in marrying
the young lady Saturday night.
This so angered the old gentleman,
who is known for quietness but
great determination, that when he
learned of the wedding Sunday
evening he saddled his horse,
loaded a double-barreled shotgun,
took his pistol and declared he
would kill the whole party con-
cerned. As he rode up to For-
sythe's home he saw his son-in-law
fleeing through the orchard. He
brought him down with seven
buckshot in the groin, leaving him
for dead. He then rode toward
the house. Mr. King H. Forsythe,
the father, came running out un-
armed to see what the trouble was
and was instantly killed with
eleven buckshot in bis bowels.
Simpson then dismounted, ran to
the house with his pistol, saying
he would now kill his daughter.
Old lady Forsythe rati between
them and held his pistol until the
girl was helped away. Simpson
then walked out of the front gate,
put his pistol to his forehead and
fired, killing himself instantly.
Young Forsythe is desperately
injured, but may recover.
All stores in Beckville are closed
and business is generally sus-
pended on account of the tragedy.

A Sad Tragedy.
Smithville, Texas, Sept.
Mrs. C. P. Critzburg, while re-
moving a pistol from under a pil-
low this morning accidently shot
and killed her 10-months-old baby.
The pistol fell to the floor and
was discharged, the contents strik-
ing the child in the back, ranging
upwards and going through the
heart, killing it instantly.
The agitation for the establish-
ment of factories in Texas is be-
coming widespread, and good re-
sults promise to grow out of it.
Nearly every community has taken
up the cry and is urging home
capital to embark in manufactur-
ing instead of lying idle in the
banks. Cotton factories should be
especially profitable in Texas. The
raw material is close at hand and
there should be no trouble iu dis-
posing of the finished product.
Texas has coal, millions of feet of
the finest pine lumber and pro-
duces one-third of the cotton
raised in the United States. Bank-
ers complain that outside capital
is shy about coming here. It will
remain so as long as home capital
prefers liens and chattel mortgages
as a form of investment instead of
engaging in manufacturing, thus
showing to the world that Texas
money has confidence in Texas
enterprises.—San Antonio Record.

The. business world recognises
that no man who drinks is as good
as he would be if he never drank.
Time was when in certain lines of
business it was considered neces-
sary to drink. Quite the contrary
is the case now. Even saloon men
prefer bar-keepers who do not
drink the liquids they sell. All
the fairy tales about the great
things people do when under the
influence of liquor have been ex-
ploded. The orator who must be
intoxicated in order to make a
speech is no longer here and he
has never been here. The lawyer
who can not plead a case or cite
an authority without spending the
night before in dissipation has gone
to visit the pale glimpses of the
moon and he has altfays been
gone. The writer who produces a
great poem or a great essay, while
maudlin, removed from this planet
before the command, "Let there
be light," was given. The book-
keeper, clerk, mechanic, salesman,
artisan, young or old, is not at hie
best while under the influence of
liquor, and he is not as valuable to
himself, his employer, or society.
In the race of life the temperate
man has the best of it; the drink-
ing man is handicapped. Great
things have been done while the
brain has been excited by stimu-
lants, but greater things would
have been done had there been no
artificial stimulation. The sober
man is always an improvement on
the drunken man.—Memphis Ap-

Barney Light, son of Mr. and

attack of malaria, but in the course
of five or six days began to im-
prove sufficiently to be up and

showed symptoms of scarlet and

Did you ever spoil a stamped
envelope in attempting to write an
address upon it? Or have you lost
stamps because they have got
sticky and adhered to each other?
If so you should know that
stamped envelopes which are only
spoiled bv mistakes committed in
superscribing will be redeemed by
the postoffiee department at their
stamp value. Postage stamps dam-
aged by sticking together in
weather or for other causes
using may be returned to the de-
partment and their value will be
repaid to the purchaser or ex-
changed for new stamps and sent
by postmasters redeeming them to
the department and records are
kept of them. These regulations
are, we think, not generally known
at large and their publication may
be beneficial. ?
The Hays County Times says
that "a round dollar and a square
bale is our motto. A round bale
and a square bale is a matter of
choioe. Knock the trust out of
the round bale and who cares about
the difference?" If the fight be-
tween the round and square bale
increases the price of cotton, the
planter will preserve his equanim-
ity; but if the round bale shall be
able to control the cotton crop there
will be wailing.-—Colorado Citizen,
