The injunction case of T. J. Townsend, et al vs. H. L. Davis,
County Judge, et al, came on for hearing in the District Court
last Saturday bv agreement. It was admitted that the cost
charges and expenses set out in answer is a charye against the
p'aintiffs if they recover. It is stated that the assessed valua
tion of this precinct was not sufficient to justify a sixty five
thousand dollar bond issue. And also that the survey is some-
tlr.ng like twelve hundred acres short in that precinct. Many
such cases are being considered in other Texas towns and efforts
in other precincts in this county have been made to have bonds
issues annulled. The outcome of the case Saturday afternoon
has caused considerable comment. Following is the order of
the court. Judge M. H. Garnett presiding: "After hearing the
evidence I conclude that the bonds are illegal and void and that
the injunction should issue as prayed for and be made perpet-
ual. The commissioners Court is ordered to cancel and destroy
all of said bonds, it appearing to the Court that the whole issue
is in the possession of the said Court and they have not been
sold nor in any manner passed into the possession of an innocent
holder. All costs of this suit are taxed against the plaintiffs
lincluding SGI 05. (Dollars) being- the costs, expense, etc., in get
ting up the bonds." No appeal of the case will be made.

Stock of Pianos
In North Texas
You don't need to go to the city to buy a piano.
You cannot get a better one there than you can here.
You cannot buy it cheaper there than you can here.
You cannot get any better terms there than you can here.
You cannot get a better guarantee there than you can
You cannot have more styles to select from there than
You cannot get a sweeter toned piano there than here.
You will not find a larger stock there than here.
You cannot beat the pianos we sell and you are sure of
getting a square deal here because you are dealing
with a HOME BUSINESS which is here to stay.
Won't you let us show you what we have?
