'•Things Are Working."
A camping yard has been built for the convenience of campers
coming to the Texas & Pacific stores to trade. A shanty has
been erected, in which is a stove, and a feed trough for stock,
good water, etc., close by. Everything is being done by this
company to accommodate its patrons. Our new hotel is nearing
completion, and our gin house will be built before the next cot
ton crop. .
The Santos Wreck.
On Monday morning at 2:15 o'clock a west bound Texas &
Pacific freight was ditched at Santos. George Grill, a brakeman.
was killed; Engineer William Criss was badly injured, and Fire-
man T. M. Youngblood was also injured. It was a bad wreck.
()ur energetic roadmaster. Mr. Burke was soon on hand and
with his usual push and vim, cleared up the wreck, and at 4 p. m.
trains were running on time. Roadmaster Burke can handle a
railroad wreck as well as any man living.
The Miner's trade reporter says that trade is lively 'round
town; that the employes of the company were paid (as they have
always been) - on time." The company believes that prompt-
ness and eternal vigilance will insure success. It seems as though
every employe of the Texas & Pacific Coal company was trying
his level best to help the management not only to make this the
banner business town of the county, but also to make it the model
town for law and order. Brains energy and hard work will ac-
complish almost everything undertaken.
That enterprising, hustling J. B. Buchanan of Fort Worth who
last fall so successfully managed the series of cheap excursions
into Fort Worth for that best of all afternoon papers the Evening
Mail, bringing them from all directions and over all roads, is
maneuvering to' do. the act" again, and some time during'next
month will put one on over the Texas & Pacific, perhaps Irom
Abilene, for that enormously cheap rate of $1 for the round trip
from all points west of Santos. Tast year, the 13th of Novem-
ber, we assisted him in putting one through, carrying over 1.300
people and it was raining harder than it has ever rained since.
This will afford a splendid opportunity for a cheap ride and to
see Fort Worth, as the stay there will be six or seven hours.
Thurber will no doubt send a large delegation.
More New Advertisements.
In this issue of The Miner will be found a page "ad" of the
Texas Brewing company of Fort Worth. Among the business
enterprises of the state, in point of magnitude and amount of
capital invested, this institution stands easily foremost. Estab-
lished in 1890, the brewery has grown with wonderful rapidity
until it has reached its present size. Each succeeding year has
seen additions made to the plant, and even now others are con-
templated. This annual enlarging and spreading out is entire'y
due to the excellent quality of the company's brew, which ranks
with that of the best breweries of the country, and to the superior
business management of the concern, which is under the direc-
tion of the president, Martin Casey.
The present capacity of the Texas Brewing company is 250 -
000 barrels per annum. This is sent out to the trade, and there
is scarcely a point in Texas that is a stranger to the famous bev-
erage of this company. Wherever it is tried it immediately finds
favor and the result is the apppointment of agents and the estab-
lishment of depots. To furnish these depots writh ice it is neces-
sary to maintain an immense ice manufactory, the output of
which is 100 tons daily. One year ago the capacity was 5 o tons.
The patronage of the brewery is becoming more and more
daily, and it is safe to predict that in another twelve months
other additions ,and improvements looking to a greater output
will be made.
The W. R, Irby Cigar and Tobacco company of the Crescent
City has a handsome "ad" on the ninth page of this issue. I his
company unfurls to the world a banner on which is written that
legend, "Reliable Goods," and especially call your attention to
the celebrated "Corona Victoria" clear Havana cigars, equal to
standard imported brands, and the "Monogram," a high-class 5-
cent cigar; also "Irby's N. O. Cigarros," five for a dime. If you
are a smoker, give these goods a trial.
Another "ad" is that of the Capera Manufacturing company
of Fort Worth. These gentlemen are bottlers of all kinds of
mineral waters, soda, ginger ale, etc., and their standing as reli-
able business men needs no recommendation at our hands. Give
their goods a test and you'll not regret it.
Tlie Next Ball.
The next society event announced for Thurber is the coming
bail to be given at the public hall on the evening of April 4
(Wednesday). While previous balls have been social successes,
it is proposed to make this one eclipse all former events in point
of enjoyment. To convince the public of this, it is only neces-
sary to mention the fact that Messrs. G. J. Marshall, Ed. S.
Britton and S. P. Smith will have the matter in charge. The
one feature heretofore lacking has been provided for—good
music and a'regularly arranged programme. Mr. Smith, whose
ability as a thorough musician is known to all, will have charge
of this particular feature, and will be assisted by two or more
proficient musical artists. A ladv will have charge of the cloak
room, and a young man the hat room, who will check and care
for your hats and wraps. An usherer will see that you are prop-
erly seated. Ice water and fans will be provided in abundance.
It is especially desired that the young men of Thurber see to it
that all ladies are provided with escorts. The management ex\
tends and especial invitation to the "married folks," and to the
fun-loving citizens of our neighboring towns, to come out 011 this
evening and help to make this the society event of the year.
l,ocal Market Report.
Following is the local market report, and of hogs and cattle
received the past week for our market:
Fifty-one head good hogs and ten stockers, ranging in price
from 3 1-4 to 4 1-2 cents.
Thirty-two head cattle. For good beeves the best market
price is being paid.
This is worthy the consideration of every farmer in this sec-
tion. It shows there is a local market right here in Thurber,
where good hogs and cattle, also every kind of farm products,
can be sold and good prices realized. This is an opportunity
not to be neglected. Besides getting top prices for everything
you sell, you have no freight charges or commission to pay. no
shrinkage and no delay about getting your money—four things
very vexatious to the shipper, and which are enough at times to
make one's hair turn gray. Stockmen and farmers will find the
Thurber local market a good one to bring their stock and farm
products to. Try it.
For Our Market.
'Squire J. L. Williams was out on a "round-up" during the
week, and succeeded in purchasing a carload each of fine fat
cattle and hogs. The cattle were purchased of Capt. H. A.
Smith of Dublin, and the hogs from Messrs. McMins and Gordon
of Caddo. Stephens county. While at Dublin the 'Squire was
very hospitably entertained by Capt. Smith and his estimable wife
at their handsome and comfortable home. The Miner is a reg-
ular visitor to the home of the Captain, and from what the 'Squire
tells us we take it that it is a visitor always welcomed and very
much appreciated It is pleasing to the publishers of this paper
to learn that it is making friends everywhere, and especially in
the counties surrounding us.
For "Our Boys."
Mr. Cammack of the dry goods department said to one of our
reporters that he was receiving a line of shirts, collars and
cuffs from the largest manufactory in that line in Troy, New
York state, who only manufacture fine goods, and that "Our
Boys" in this town can obtain as fine goods in that line as can be
purchased in any city in the country, at prices as low. if not
lower, than they are sold at elsewhere.
