One reason why so many boys

SO fit the prosperity of Yoa-
lcum has been due to the intelli-
gent efforts of the Yoakum Com-

all matters of public enterprise,
and its president, Mr. Jake
Lyons, is one of the best known
public men in this section, while

From the Victoria Advocate of
the 27th inst., we quote the fol-
lowing: “Oscar Roos, a promi-
nent hardware and grocery mer-
chant of this city, last night ten-
dered his resignation as a mem-
ber of the city council, which was
accepted with regrets. The res-
ignation will beeffeMive just as
soon as Mr. Roos’ successor can
be elected. He gave as his rea-
son for it that his business inter-
ests would not permit him to
properly attend to the duties of
the office. Mr- Roos’ resignation
is to be deplored, for he is a rep-
resentative business man and it
is a credit to a city to have that
class of men direct its municipal

AT THE CITY COUNCIL
R. S. Winn of Waco, repre-
senting, R. S. Winn & Co., was
here Wednesday and made a
proposition to the City Council in
which he proposes to establish a
crematory in our city. Mr.
Winn stated to the council that
the crematory would be built at
the company’s expense provided
the cjty would furnish the land
on which U> put it. In this crem-
atory the company proposes to
burn all night soil and dead ani-
mals, in fact all garbage from
the city, at the rate of 75 cents
per ton, without odor while in
operation. This p|spt will cost
the turn of $2500.
The council referred the matter
to the regular meeting next Mon-

Few medicines are of any benefit

tells plainly what Dr. Miles’ Re-

ounce of salicylate of soda added to
one bottle of Nervine makes an ex-
cellent remedy for rheumatism,

ous disease and therefore subject to
