Plans are on foot to hold a flower
and gaulen show in Bastrop in the
early summer, giving local and ru-
ral citizens a chance to display thei
prize tomatoes or onions or carrot-,
and other vegetables as well as their
prize flowers. Ample piizes wii? o-

Bastrop, with its background of
history and aristocracy, should be th>*
prettiest little town in Texas, and
with the combined efforts of the citi
zen.s of the town, the business mer,
and the civic organizations, it can
easily be made so.
In order to stimulate interest
through the spring months, the Ad
vertiser will run, each week, a col
umn on Beautifying Bastrop, using
in it suggestions for gardening and
flowers adaptable to the section. If
any of you lovers of flowers have
any suggestions you would like to
pass on to your neighbors, write
them down and bring them to the
Advertiser office, ami we will be
plad to use them in this column.
Let's all work together this
spring to make Bastrop the prettiest
little town in Texas!
The first public donation to the
Finnish relief made in Bastrop came
Tuesday afternoon, when Dr. H. B.
Combs pledged $10.00 toward tin*
Thv Bastrop Chamber of Com-
merce has agreed to accept the con
tributions and to send them in turn
to the proper authorities. If you have-
any cont: ibutions to make toward

Chamber of Commerce.
