DUNS AND DOLLARS.
The Brand only recently sent out
abme of the most interesting duns
ever published —yes, real duns, but
those duns brought the dollars and
they are still coming. Therefore,
•one more duos will be sent out
after some more dollars. And the
Brand feels gratified that not a liv-
ing soul got mad about the duns,
(one dead 'un got hot under his
hame string), while the response
has been quite satisfying. Let the
good work go on even after Xmas.
If you know yourself to be indebted
for a subscription, send a dollar
around or better send two like a
good reader did last week.
Some folks are so self-important
that unless they can oe IT, they will
not be NIT even in good company.
There is no use to argue with
people who have already made up
their minds that you are wrong and
don't know it.
The article upon sheep raising by
A. G, Bell published recently in the
Brand has been extensivsly copied
by other Texas papers. The Daily
Panhandle was the first to see the
merit of the article and reproduced
it in its entirety.
The Christmas trade for the
Hereford merchants has been most
satisfactory. The "shop early"
idea seems to have lead many to
buy their Cfiristmas things at the
proper time, but still there is1 a
heavy trade today and tomorrow
will see the last day with a final
rush of buyers. Practically all the
Chrjstmas goods will be disposed of.
Tomorrow, Saturday, is Christ-
mas eve and with it comes the joy
and sadness of giving presents; joy
to those who are both able to give
and to receive, sadness to those who
neither have the means to give nor
the friends to remember them.
Y*rious methods are employed by
thoughtful people to bring a little joy
into each home. By some this is
oone thru the medium of the Xmas
ttree while others select a less pre-
tentious way and quietly distribute
4heir gifts as the Santa Claus spirit
ftrompts them. Little do the people
of the Sanny Southwest know of the
meager Christmas of the crowded
districts of the large cities. In this
free and prosperous land of Sunshine
there is always a good Santa Claus
for every child. But happiness does
not always accompany gifts. The
Kindly spoken or written words are
more often the treasure of the heart
than the gift itself. Giving with
simplicity is the characleristic 0 f
the true Santa Claus. The Brand
wishes its thousands of friends every
where, the fullest joy and over-
flowing cup of happiness in this
Christmas time of the good year
of our Lord One Thousand Nine
Hundred and Ten.

pepsin, after years of study perfected

ing and healing to the inflamed mem-
branes of the stomach. They are rich
in pepsin, one of the greatest digestive
aids known to medicine The relief
they afford is almost immediate. Their
use with persistency and regularity for
a short time brings about a cessation
of the pains caused by stomach disor

mote nutrition. As evidence of our sin-
cere faith In Rexall Dyspepsia Tablets,

A Xmas Present
At this glad season when every man is racking hie brain to know what to get the loved ones,
that will be appropriate and appreciated, we wish to suggest that a Life Policy in the Bankera Reserve
Life of Omaha, in favor of the Wife or Children will be one of the very beat presenta possible to give
them; then a DisaBility Policy in the Fidelity & Causality Co., of New York weeld be a splendid gift,
and in case yon were Injured, Sick or Diaabled in any way your salary would go on just the same.
And make yourself a present of a Fire Insurance Policy on your home or other property in either the
North Britiah & Mercantile, German American, Connecticut, Insurance Company of North Americs, Ban-
over or Peoples National, any one of which will take pleasure in a prompt settlement in case of loss.
Ask us about them, it is a pleasure to explain their merits. Thanking our many friends for their pat-
ronage in the past, and wishing one and all a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year,
we are, Respectfully yours,
