THE TEXAS MINER.
Thurber, Texas, Saturday, March 10, 1894.
Non ci manca ancora che il Teatro poi potremo vantarsi di
avere a mano tutte le "delicatezze" di una citta' Nella setti-
mana scorsa ci aprirono il Restaurant unito al "Salone," e di-
ciamola pure, e" un restaurant di primo ordine. Ii servizio e'
ottimo ed il cibo eccellente. Nell' interesse delle signore che
tengono uoimm a costo "Bordanti" siamo in dubio se raccom-
andare agli Italiani di prendere il pasto battezzimale al restaur-
ant teniendo che se facessero ció' vorrebbero staccarsi dal casa-
lizio Italiano per appigliarsi permanentemente al restaurant. In
ogm modo le predette Signore faranno cosa savia di attendere
alia cucina con scrupolosita' ora che vi ha la concorrenza !
Ira i minatori Italiani qui osserviamo della bella gioventu'
Non sarebbe forse una buona idea di mettersi d' accordo e dare
un bailo od altro trattenimento puramente Italiano ? Vi e' una
buona sala qui che si puo' affittare a prezzo modico. Su gio-
vanotti, cosa ne pensate ?
Da recenti corrispondenze dall' Italia osserviamo tra i diversi
progetti d' economía nelle spese dello stato quello del cangia-
mento, cioe1 della riforma nel vestiario dell militare. Spériamo
che riesciranno in una od altro maniera a fare dell economie
ma ci rincrescerebbe se dovessero fare alcun cangiamento nell'
uuiforme dei nostri Soldati. Per eleganza del vestiario stesso ed
apparenza generale dell' uniforme il soldato Italiano fu sempre
nguardato come il piu imponente e ci auguriamo che i nostri-
uomini di stato non perderanno ció di vista nei loro progetti
d economía. ®
Principiando colla nostra prossima edizione questo giornale
dedichera un intera colonna in Italiano che contenira' le notizie
in conciso dall' Italia come pure le notizie locali d' interesse ai
nostri minatori qui. Speriamo che gl' Italiani nel campo s'inter-
esseranno nel giornale e saremo grati a coloro che vorranno
tavorirci del loro abbanamento che non costa che $r all' anno.
T« Our Citizens:
'Our Colonel1' directs us to say, that such of our people who
want to fix up their yards, that the Company has a good many
empty ban els that they will give to those wanting to fix up their
yards. 1 he barrel staves will make a good fence which will add
to the appearance of your homes. If you want some of these
you can get them by applying at the office at the store.
This office now has a "devil," and he has come to stay
Usually the printer's devil is a harem-scarem little scamp, caring
little tor anybody or anything; who loves to dabble in the ink
barrel and who generally turns the office into a "hell" box but
who is, with it all, bright as a dollar, quick as a cat and thor-
oughly up to snuff. Our devil, Howard Miller, is no exception
to the rule; but in thinking of his general cussedness, we remem-
ber that it is not always the goody-goody boys that make the
brightest and best men.
Our Meat Market.
Squire Williams purchased forty-seven choice hogs of Mr
Stuart to slaughter for our market'house. By the by, we learned
the other day, and from an ousider, too, that we had the best
market and best butcher that could be turned out anywhere, and
that our market was selling choice meats at a lower price than
they were in selling in Dallas or Fort Worth, and that they were
furnishing beef to Eddy, N. M., to some gentlemen who wanted
an extra choice article.
The March of Progress.
Onward goes the march of progress and improvement in
1 hurber, and every day sees some new feature inaugurated in
our town by the everlasting energy and thoughtfulness of "our
Colonel." Among the new work done this week is the laying of
water mains to connect with the restaurant, saloon and livery
stable. The work on the dormitory is being pushed as rapidly
as men can do it, and will be furnished in a very short time.
"Our colonel" has given orders (and his orders are always
obeyed) that a young man be placed at the general store to
take charge of all horses and vehicles of ladies who come to "the
store" to trade. Steps for the convenience of ladies in getting
m and out vehicles have been built. This young man will con-
vey to and place in vehicles all packages, show customers to the
various trading departments to which thev may desire to go,
and will give general information to those bringing in produce.
etc., as to where to find the buyer. The new hitching racks are
a great convenience. A force of men is engaged in taking up
all stumps and lowering all unsightly trees—and so it goes. It
is just such things, beneficial to all, that shows the large hearted
character of him who is ever at the helm, and the sincere de-
sire he has to do everything in his power that will prove a bene-
fit to the community.
A New Assortment.
Of course you are keeping up with the advertisements that
appear in this paper every week ? Well, we have a few new ones
for you to look at, and a reading of them will profit you not a lit-
tle. Among them is one from McCord-Collins Commerce com-
pany of Irort Worth. I hey are wholesale grocers and Importers
vvho handle everything, first-class, in their line. A partial list" of
their specialties, and they are dandies, is published in their "ad."
Swofford, the manufacturer of indestructible overalls, pants and
workshirts, advertises his goods in this issue. These goods are
guaranteed of a superior quality and are made to fit.
Ballard, Webb & Burnett company has a full line of their
goods—Guaranteed Buck Hats—for sale at the Texas & Pacific-
Coal company's store. Every hat of their make is guaranteed.
Beall Bros., of Alton Illinois, manufacturers of miners' tools
and supplies send us a very attractive "ad." which will be found
on the sixth page. 1 his is one of the largest manufacturing
firms, of this class of goods, in the country. Their tools and
supplies have gained the reputation of being equal, if not better,
than the best made.
The Dublin lee company notifies our readers that their goods
- soda water and all kinds of Carbonated drinks—are sold here
in Thurber the year round. Mr. Gillette, the manager, states
that he knows a good thing when he sees it and believes every-
one else does, so advises the purchase of goods bottled by the
Dublin lee company.
The plumbers are always to the front, and the L. M. Rumsey
manufacturing company is in the front of the front rank. They
cany everything for and do everything in plumbing work. Be-
sides this, they are manufacturers and jobbers of sanitary earth-
enware, gas and lead pipe and sheet lead, closet tanks, fine brass
goods, etc. It is a reliable firm, whose goods always give
satisfaction wherever introduced.
