and adjoining States and Territories.
While this is its chief territory it also has an
extensive circulation in all the Southern
The enterprise exhibited by this live newspaper
company is shown by their two special
newspaper trains in north Texas and one in
south Texas, sent out especially to deliver
the News from Dallas and Galveston every
morning, leaving about four o'clock over the
principal lines of railroads, reaching to the
most populous sections of the State.
These early trains are run with such regularity
and with such rapid speed that all the
towns within sixty and 100 miles distance
from Dallas receives the News on the morning
of publication before breakfast.
These two divisions-Galveston News and
Dallas News, are so connected by special
telegraph wires leased and operated exclusively
by this company that a perfect and
smooth interchange of news is effected. The
Galveston News with its special train thus
delivers its publication over southern Texas

its name indicates,-of the Timres and the
Herald. The Times was started in 1875, and
edited and controlled for a long time by Captain
W. G. Sterrett. Mr. Gilbert bought out
Captain Sterrett and his associates, and under
his control and editorship this evening daily
has become one of the most eagerly sought
after of all papers of the kind in the South. Its
circulation is remarkably large for an evening
paper. It is but right to state its present

displayed by Mr. Gilbert's splendid corps of
