That good times are with us that
peace and prosperity rolgn Is further
established by the Tact that the larg-
est crowds In years from this section
and all other sections of the state are
attending the Dallas fair this year. 1
Travel over the Houston and Texas
Central road for the past two or three
days has been enormous. The trains
have been run with many extra
coaches and In many Instances have
been run In from two to three sections
to accommodate the crowds.
A train reached this city Saturday
with passengers hanging on the steps
and loaded about one hundred more
from Bryan. This congestion was re-
lieved at Hearno by 'another train go
ing out ahead of this one to care for
the buHlness up the rond and two ex
tra coaches being added to the one
passing here so that the patrons
could securo seats.
Reports are coming from those re
turning from the fair that such crowds
havo never been seen congregated be

shooting at Dellwood Park this after-
noon arrived last night and met a
number of the people of the city dur-
ing the day especially former trap

Captain Hardy looks every Inch the
part of his profession and will make

exhibition Is being given at Dellwood
and a largo number went out to wit
"Why Is that pig always trying to

Those who are meeting the present situation in the condition
of the paper market for the first time will hear on all sides reasons
both pro and con and generous in number for the present advance
in prices. These however stripped of their figures and statistics
can be summed up in but one sentence:
The Doubly Increased Demand for Paper and the
Threefold Decrease in the Supply of Raw Materials.
you desire verification of this statement come with us on a
little purchasing expedition and learn personally what staggering
prices are being obtained for the prime requisites for printing.
Sulphite pulp for instance is to paper what struttural steel is
to a building. In its unbleached condition it could be bought a few
months ago for $1.90 per cwt. It now costs $40.
The bleached sulphite sold normally at $2.65 per cwt. now
Old rags old paper and old rope imported usually at the rate
of 90000 tons per year is now entirely cut off owing to stringent
Inks quite plentiful a few months ago at from 6c to $1.00 pet-
pound now cost in some instan ces as high as $S.OO per pound and
some are unobtainable at any price.
The war of course is the direct cause of this startling condi-
tion but yet we cannot marvel when we realize that most of the
sulphite pulp heretofore used in this country is made from Itus-
sian wood and for twelve months there has been no wood cut in
Russia and probably will not be for another twelve months more.
The price of every kind of labor has increased manifold as have the
prices of metals and machinery.
Furthermore despite the fact that heretofore this country has
not been noted for its paper exportation it is today exporting pw
per at the stupendous rate of S5000000 pounds per year.
YOU MUST NOW SEE THE INEVITABLE OUTCOME
When the big mills of the country even those stocked heavily
at the first intimation of rising pricesjiavc exhausted their pres
ent supply and cannot buy more at hardly any price then paper
prices arc going to soar higher and higher and this skyward trip is
both expected and is being prepared for within the next .six

parts of the country are puxxled to
know why the Cotton Talact ran pay

answer is easy. The Cotton Palace
wants the best and is willing to pay
for it The Cotton Talace is also the
most unimie exposition in the South
and therefore attracts more attention.
