Madisonville Truck Line
We have been advertising daily
freight service from Madisonville to
Houston and have not been able to
give this every day as expected for
the reason that many of our custo-
mers have been giving us the orders
to fill when we leave for Houston.
This necessarily causes a great deal
of delay. We have to go almost all
over the city of Houston to gather up
the freight after our arrival and this
takes lots of time. It is sometimes
necessary to call for perishable stuff
but we want to urge our patrons to
order their freight by mail and have
it delivered to 1119 Vine St. so that
this necessary delay will not be made
when we arrive at Houston and we
er if we can get the cooperation of ths
can make the deliveries much quick-
public in this matter.
It will be necessary for us to charge
for the extra time in picking up these
orders when not delivered to the de-
pot above named. We want tJ* give
the best service possible and expect
to do that with your help. I want to
thank you lor past favors and assure
you that I am at your service to make
the best and quickest deliveries pos-

Editor Ross Woodall and V. S.
Nance were here from Huntsville
Friday. Our good friend Woodall
was pushing the candidacy of Mrs.
Minnie Fisher Cunningham for the
U. S. Senate. Mrs. Cunningham was
reared in Walker county and they are
trying to give her a good complimen-
try vote in the first primary. They
all admit the race is between Earl
B. Mayfield and Tom Connally.
Mr. and Mrs. N. M. Wycough were
Houston visitors last Wednesday.

Mr. J. T. Stutts has gathered and
sold eighty gallons of figs off of three
trees on his place this year besides
what they have canned themselves,
and there is still lots of demand for
this lucious fruit here in Madisonville,
that cannot be supplied.
Edwin and Charles Byers are here
from Houston for a few days • with
their parents, Mr. and Mrs. T. W.

used for all replacements.
Then we attach a Red O. K. Tag
to the radiator cap showing
exactly what units of the car
have been put into first class
condition. This tag is your guar-
