appearance last week. It is a five column
sheet, and in regard to typographical neat-
ness and business goahftrftjath ness, it is
quite superior to any of our dailies. Its
advertising columns furninsh evidence of
enterprise and business qualifications in
Denison. There is no such thing as esti-
mating the value ol such a paper to a new
town. At the lowest estimate the News
will bring on thousand souls and half a
million dollars t<j Deni -on during ns first

Ke.il Estate and Hull ding Assocint
ui it I inn,
We are glad to learn that our enterpris-
ing friends, W. II. Day. W. B. Munson
and John (j. McElvaney, have obtained a
charter for, and are now organizing a
Real Estate and Building 'Association, in
This Association will buy, improve, rent
:uicl sHl lots in the city of Denisonrjjhuv,
sub-divide, improve and sell lands outside
if the city, and especially those large tracts
which can he obtained at low rates, and
sub-divided and improved, sold for good
prices. The profits realized on outside
purchases can he invested in substantial
improvements in Denison.
Investments in Texas lands at reasona-
prices, cannot fail to pay largely.
The gentlemen who obtained the Char-
ter and are for the first year its Directors,
are well known in this community, and
indeed, throughout the State, as reliable,
upright and negations business men.
We venture to predict that in less than a
year, the stock of this association, half
paid up, will sell at par.
Such an association as this was formed
in the city of Austin, about five years ago,
and before fifty per cent of the stock was
[laid in, such were the handsome profits of
the Company, that, the stock stood at par in
market, and, to-day, that stock is regarded
by bunkers as the b<Rt collateral that city
affords. It will pay ,as well, or better
We wish this association all success,
and commend it and its projectors to our
readers, as worthy of their confidence, and
deserving of their attention
Till: CATTLE TRADE.
Derisox, Texas, March,5, iS-p.
To the tii/itor of the Daily Neves':
A very important move is on foot,
set in motion by the live men of Den-
ison. to attract the Cattle Trade to
this point, whereby every business
man, architect, restaurater, mechanic
and laboring man, as well as every
woman and child identified with the
permanency and prosperity of Deni-
son, will be vastly benefit ted. E. E.
Tallant & Co., propose to bring here,
this season, 30,000 head, or more, of
Cattle, and this requiring a large
amount of money and backing, they
propose to bring the Cattle in from
time to time, during the season, on
the basis of a subscription made bv
such liberal, live citizens as favor the
plan, which Mr. Tallant will ex-
plain. 'Fhe general idea is, that each
subscriber will be called upon from
time to time, as the Cattle arrive, for
their pro rata, and the stock will be
shipped on joint account of all the
subscribers, who will organize and
elect their own executive officers and
Messrs. Perry, Shepherd, Scullin,
and many other of our wealthiest and
Clear-headed citizens favor the plan,
mid have already subscribed liber-
To bring the Cattle Trade here,
means impetus to every line of busi
(less—and we cannot too highly rec-
ommend Messrs. Tallant & Co.’s
ilaicto all our citizens. They and
heir agents will visit you and explain
the plan more fully. A liberal policy
how will place Denison ahead of all
i rival competitors. A Citizen.
