Who is to profit most b.v .the
rai I road ? Wi thout doubt the
land owners; there can be but
one opinion in regard to this.
Aside from the land owners is
there profit enough to others in
a railroad to warrant the invest-
ment? Not at present, or 'until
developments resulting from a
railroad greatly increase the
business of one. Who will be
mostly benefited by such develop-
ments? Again, the present land
owners. How will such benefits
j be distributed? Largely in pro-
portion to their land holdings.
jThen should contributions be on
I that basis and in that proportion?
| Undoubtedly they should; what
! fairer basis and propositions can
there be? We all know that if

As Crosby County has been
so long Without an appearance
at the Dallas Pair it may seem
well to have double representa-
tion this year; but to do -this
matter justice is quiie an under-
taking, involving considerable
labor and expense; and it would
seem the best policy to follow
the methods of other counties
and be content with one exhibit

credit in all respects. Leave
this year in the hands of those
who conceived, arranged for
and have thus far promoted the
enterprise, and next year let
straightforward one; and the
co-operation, support and con-
tributions of all good people of
Crosby County is invited and will
be appreciated in this enterprise
for the county's advancment.
Great encouragement has been,
extended thus far, indicating a
county-wide interest and support
on the part of its people, and we
feel confident of a fine display
that will do credit to Crosby
County and its resources.
Contributions for display in
this booth that are not of a per-
