named Directors and Officers, to
J. T. Trezevant, Alex Sanger, J.

Thanks to the management of
last year, the grounds and build-
ings are all in good repair and
their general attractive appearance
will be greatly enhanced by a lib-
eral supply of paint and all other
needed decorations and improve-
Never before since its organiza-
tion, in 1886, have the financial af-
fairs of this great institution been
in so solvent a condition. Never
before has its very foundation
been so firmly established- as
where it now stands and never be-
fore have its prospects been so
bright for a long and successful fu-
The large area of our state, its
mild and healthful climate and the
varied products of its soil, com-
bined with its wealth of minerals,
coal, stone and lumber, and its
peculiar adaptability to stock rais-
ing, invite alike the capitalist anu
miner, the manufacturer and lab-
orer and the farmer and stock-
raiser. To develop all these var-
ied resources and products has
ever been, and will continue to be,
the main ooject of the State Fair
coupled, however with a view to
the recreation and enjoyment of
the public at large* As in tire
past, ao in the future, will the
State Fair provide every species of
sew, interesting" and instructive
tmateneats, fall particulars of
which will be given to the public
later on through the columns of
the press, and nothing will be left
undone to make these annual en-
tertainments grand, gala and edu
cational occasions. Annual as
semblies of the people where they
can meet, teach and be taught;
meet old friends and make new
ones; compare past experience
and make new resolves, and all
return to their homes, each with
a fresher heart and broader views;
each wiser and better than before
and saying to his neighbor: "It
is good that we saw the Great
In appreciation of past efforts,
the press has freely tendered its
columns, the railways their rates;
exhibitors have filled every avail-
able space and visitors have
crowded its grounds to the ut-
most capacity, and to-day the
Texas State Fair stands without
a rival. Should it receive equal
patronage and support in the fu-
ture, and there is no reason why
it should not, it will ever keep
pace with the rapid and marvelous
developments of this wonderful
State of Texas, and generations to
follow will point to it with pride
as the greatest State on the Amer-

Drs. Massie and Spann, who
have a very fine office and
business in the Trust Bldg.,
Dallas, have opened an office in
Mineral Wells, opposite the
Wann hotel. This office is
conducted by Dr. Massey per-
sonally. To those who are
seeking the shortest road to
health Dr. Massie extends
an invitation to call on him for
a free consultation.—Mineral

Not A Boom.
Mineral Wells is not on a boom.
No boom is wanted. It is not a
boom town. The citizens are not
boomers. They are hustlers. Our
people pre trying to build houses to
keep up with the demand. Many
houses are rented before they are
started, others before they are com-
pleted. The growth is not spasmod-
ic—just natural. Real estate values
are low, compared with the advan-
tages and prospects, which makes it
possible for a poor man to own his
home. More buildings are being
erected here than in any other place
in Texas of its size. Let the good
work go on. Let the virtues of the
Mineral Weils waters go out to the
world. Let the sick, the lame and
the well come and enjoy the bless-
ings flowing from mother earth, until
the valley .of the Brazos and the
mountains surrounding are dotted
with beautiful dwellings and happi-
ness and prosperity abound in our
midst.—Mineral Wells Daily Index.
Nellie E. the five months old
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W.

day evening, after an appro-
priate service at the residence

deepest sympathy of this paper

their awful affliotion.

His Bride's Portrait.
There is a peculiar portrait ii
Washington which has created mud
interest among those who kpow of it)
existence. Ita peculiarity is tha>
every year it lias changed to shovi
the changes which time would havt
made in the original. The portrai'
ft by a Washington artist, and is o'
his wife, and was painted many yean
ago, when she was a young brido.
i- A few years after the portrait win
painted the young lady died, and s<
great was the grief of the artist tha'
he determined to keep her likeness
with him all the time, and to do sc
he decided that year by year lu
would change the portrait bo as tc
make it grow old with him, and thui
keep her, as it were, ever with him.
Ever)' year, on the anniversary ol
his wedding day, the artist looks
himself in his studio and changes
the lines of the face of the portrait
adding what he thinks would make
the difference of one year. There
have been many anniversaries of that
marriage day, and consequently
many changes in the portraib.
Today the picture is that, of ar
old woman, the hair turned gray, tli?
face wrinkled and pale, but stiLI be-
neath the marks of time, as made by
the brush of the artist, can be seer
the early beauty of the bride and th«
attractiveness of the young woi^ha
