Brother W. Grime* and family, of
Lanegort, Williamson county, was in
Rockdale last Friday laying in snpplies
for themselves. This good brother put
up his team with Tom Paul and had
them fed because he saw bis ad in the
Messenger, and be made it a point -to
trade exclusively with those who ad-
vertised in the Messenger. Not only
this, blit he cheerfully g!ave the editor
ISiOOm subscription and declared bo
would not trade with anyone who
would not advertise in his favorite pa-
per. Brother Grimes says he sold bis
cotton in Taylor, but came to Rockdale
to spend his-money because the mer-
chants advertise in the Messenger, and
he said he had made four or five dol-
lars that day in the price of hie family
supplies be and his good wife had
bought. We certainly appreciate Bro.
Grimes friendship, but still more do we
appreciate the complements of the good
lady. Brother Grimes will soon move
to Killeen, Bell county, where he hopes
to buy and pay ./or a* home. What a
pity such an industrious family haven’t
